5 Haunted Places You Absolutely Must Not Visit this Halloween in KL

5 haunted places in kl you must not visit in halloween 2021.

With October being the month of Halloween, who needs Night of Frights when the city has real haunted areas that will chill you to the bone. Like any other large city in the world, KL has its share of places whose claim to fame rests only on how haunted they are. Drawing intrigue and fear from the public, these are the top 5 haunted places in KL that you absolutely must not go to this Halloween (unless you are one of those stupidly brave souls). We have also listed the 6 most haunted places beyond KL. Read HERE

1. Bukit Tunku

Bukit Tunku is an exclusive neighbourhood that houses some of the most expensive homes in KL. However, do not be mistaken by its well-heeled facade. It is one of the most haunted places in KL city. An unnamed mansion located in the area, which is also a heritage building, is a well known site for paranormal activities. Professional ghost hunters who have investigated the house report possessions, feelings of overwhelming nausea and inexplicable voices and shrieks. But it isn’t just the house that is haunted. The roads that wind through the hills are also known for ghost sightings, most notably the apparition of a motorcycle rider on a phantom bike. There is also compelling footage online of a motorist who encountered a ghostly figure sat in the middle of the road while driving through the area (see pic above). So the next time your journey takes you through the winding roads of Bukit Tunku, watch out. Who knows what could be lurking beyond the next bend.

2. Victoria Institution

One of the oldest secondary schools in Malaysia, Victoria Institution was founded by the British to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. During World War II, the school was used by the Japanese to imprison enemy combatants. Unofficial word is that captives from the Allied Forces were tortured and even killed on the grounds of the school. Students have reported sightings of ghostly apparitions during the day and night and perhaps the most well known paranormal event reported is the possession story of a marching band student. He was alone in the school late one evening when he found himself on top of the water tank with no recollection of how he got there. According to the student, the last thing he remembered was asking a girl he saw where she was going before waking up on the rooftop. Creepy.

3. Mona Fandey’s House

Mona Fandey eerily predicted that she would never die and this might well prove to be true. A pop star who fell from grace by murdering politician Mazlan Idris in 1993, Mona dabbled in black magic and was a self-professed bomoh . Mona Fandey lives on in notoriety even after her execution in 2001 at the age of 45. Her house still stands today, albeit abandoned, and is located in Seksyen 12 in Shah Alam. The house is said to be haunted by spirits as a result of the black magic that she practiced while living there. The closest you’ll get to the house is the road that runs alongside it as it sits on the property of the Selangor Royal Family estate. However, those who have ventured out to find it all agree that the house carries very dark energy that is undeniable. 

4. Mimaland, Gombak

A popular spot for local tourists in the 80s and 90s has become one of the most popular haunted places in KL, Mimaland was a water theme park that shut its doors in 1994 and has since been left to decay. While there haven’t been any official ghost sightings, visitors describe the place as unmistakably eerie. The park was plagued with calamity after calamity while in operation, beginning with the freak death of a Singaporean tourist, and not long after, a landslide completely destroyed the pool in the early 90s. Since shutting its doors, the place has been left to be taken over by nature, leaving it in a state of dereliction ripe for haunting.

5. Highland Towers

One of the worst tragedies to have befallen Kuala Lumpur, Highland Towers has since made it onto many haunted lists of famous haunted places in KL. Those who are old enough will no doubt remember the terrible tragedy that claimed the lives of 48 people. Located in Bukit Antarabangsa, the buildings stand abandoned today and have been subject to much vandalism and illegal activity. However, ghost hunters who have ventured to explore the crumbling towers have had many ghostly encounters including the sighting of an old lady’s apparition along with that of a baby. Incidentally, two of the victims were a 77 year old grandmother and an 8-month-old baby. The buildings have since been scheduled for demolition in 2019 so for all you ghost hunters out there, go now before you miss your chance.

So these are our top 5 haunted places KL for all you intrepid ghost hunters to explore in KL this Halloween. For those of you who prefer not to tempt the deceased, we are with you on that. You can experience the adrenaline rush of a fictional haunting in the spooky hallways of the Hauntu Colle Eastern Hotel. Follow our social media  for the reopening date and make your next visit to KL one to remember.

MALAYSIA’S FIRST IMMERSIVE HORROR EXPERIENCE, HAUNTU OPENS IN THE LINC KL

Kuala Lumpur, 25 January 2019 – The team behind the global escape room franchise Breakout , proudly debuts its newest venture, Hauntu, bringing the first immersive horror experience of its kind in Malaysia. Located on the Second Floor of The LINC KL, Hauntu is now open for public access, giving the chance for Malaysians to immerse themselves in the engaging horror experience that has never been offered before.

Hauntu, pronounced haunt-you, is a theatre performance and a haunted house combined into a single immersive experience – bringing a blend of live theatre, role play and storytelling that come together. It is Malaysia’s first and only immersive horror experience, where guests take on the roles of characters in a story, interact with other characters performed by real actors and make decisions that will affect the outcome of the experience. For fans of the Netflix show, Westworld, the concept of Hauntu should be easy to understand.

The idea of Hauntu was born after identifying that the demand by Malaysians for new and unique experiences is growing exponentially. “Traffic to Breakout experienced double-digit growth every month – we knew that Malaysians were actually not just ready, but craving for more different experience”, Johnny Ong, co-founder of Breakout and Hauntu explains.

For individuals who are hungry for adventure, those who are thrill seekers, Hauntu, is set to bring unique experiences designed just for them.

Covering an area of 7,000 square feet, Hauntu welcomes guests to check in to Colle Eastern Hotel, a hotel constructed in the architectural style of British colonial buildings of Old Malaya. Featuring 1950’s style fixtures and furniture, participants will not only get to take on roles within the storylines in the infamous hotel containing a dark mystery, but also get to experience Malaysia in different eras – from its pre-independence period right up to the present.

Much more than a haunted house, Hauntu highlights three interconnected storylines that revolve around the Colle Eastern Hotel, which is filled with mystery and the paranormal. Over the span of three months, one story will be revealed for the public to experience each month. As the three stories are interconnected, guests will still be able to have the complete experience regardless of which story they begin their Hauntu experience with.

“Unlike Breakout, where the aim for guests is to escape and solve puzzles – at Hauntu, the guests take on character roles within the story of the month with the objective of committing a fictional crime or completing a mission”, Ong further explains.

In Hauntu, a cast of 6 to 10 actors who are integral to the theatrical story, will perform their characters in full costume including bellboys, witches, and chambermaids, among other, ensuring that each guest in each story has an authentic and eerie experience.

Hauntu is open daily from 11am to 11pm, last admission is at 10pm. Admission fee is priced at RM58 per person. For more information or to uncover the stories at Hauntu, visit https://ihauntu.com or call +6011-1686 9199 for bookings – who knows, you may never want to leave…

During World War II, the Japanese Occupation took over Victoria Institution (VI) as one their bases in the city. At the time, many British soldiers and locals were brutally tortured and killed on campus. It is said that apparitions are not only common at night but in the day as well. Cases of students being possessed by spirits is nothing new to students and teachers from VI. The most shocking story ever told was when a band member stayed back in school till late night for practice and “disappeared” only to be found on top of the water tank later on. The band member said that he saw a girl walking by alone and being courteous, he asked her where she was going and that was when everything went blank. Eek! 

2. Highland Towers

Most Malaysians remember the story of Highland Towers as one of the most tragic incidents to date. Highland Towers was built in 1993; however, without warning, a whole block of building collapsed thus causing the death of 48 residents. The devastating incident was caused by soil erosion after further inspection. It is said that to this date, you can still hear the cries for help and devastation of those who lost their lives in this tragic incident.

3. SK Danau Perdana

SK Danau Perdana was emptied in 2005 and left abandoned up till today. The reason given for the abandonment of the school was due to the land being unsafe for occupation as cracks started to appear on the walls. Hence, it was ordered to shut down by the authorities. Although the reason of abandonment of the school is not paranormal-related, there have been stories of paranormal activities in the compound. One famous urban legend is that the school is occupied by a pontianak , which is a spirit of a woman who died while pregnant and she is allegedly one of the cleaners of the school.

4. Aeroplane Bungalow

Noted as Malaysia’s most notorious murders, this is the house of the late Mona Fandey who was a popular bomoh back in the ’90s. Mona Fandey was known for using black magic to help many politicians achieve power. In 2001, she was executed for brutally murdering politician Mazlan Idris back in 1993 while conducting a ceremony to invest him with power. It’s reported that Mona, along with her husband, had Mazlan lie down while they conducted the ceremony, before dismembering and partially skinning Mazlan. During her execution, she claimed that she will never die and her house is supposedly haunted due to all the black magic she had been practising.

5. Bukit Tunku

Bukit Tunku was formerly known as Kenny Hills. It was renamed in honour of our first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman. The area has also been popularly nicknamed ‘The Beverly Hills of Malaysia,’ due to its abundance of luxury bungalows and lavish condominiums. However, beneath all the wealth and luxury lies a dark reality. Apparently, there’s an abandoned mansion in Bukit Tunku that’s well-known for being haunted. There are several stories behind this spooky house, such as a lady who hung herself from the corner of the building, pontianaks  that roam around at night, and even a phantom motorcyclist who reputedly died while on a race one night.

So, there you have it, some of the most haunted places in Kuala Lumpur with a rather dark history. Do you dare to visit them all? If you’ve ever been to one of these sites, let us know your experience in the comments!

[UPDATED] These 9 Haunted Places In KL Will Send Chills Down Your Spine

ghost house at kl

I’m sure we all know of quite a few buildings and locations in KL that are reportedly haunted by mystical beings and demonic entities. Many urban legends has sprung up from these places, with numerous people claiming to have witnessed unusual activity, experienced hair-raising incidents, or even possessed by spirits themselves. If you’re a thrill-seeker looking for somewhere creepy to explore, or if you’re a scaredy-cat (like myself) who’ll be happy to simply sit behind our computer screens and read about these stories, here’s a list of the reputedly most haunted places in Kuala Lumpur:

Mimaland, Gombak

Image Credit: @RikiKassim on Twitter

Mimaland was a water theme park opened way back in 1975, in Gombak, Selangor. It proved quite popular among the locals at the time, with many heading there for family time and school trips. However, a deadly accident in the 1990s left a Singaporean visitor dead, and a later series of unfortunate events (including a landslide) left no choice but the closure of the amusement park. The prehistoric-themed park is now closed off to the public, but still currently exists, albeit covered in graffiti and overrun by nature. It’s said to have quite an ominous atmosphere, with its too-quiet surroundings and intense darkness at night. Not to mention the towering statues of dinosaurs and wild animals still there among the overgrowth! Now, the place is a magnet for amateur ghost hunters wanting to seek out some paranormal activity. After all, what sounds cooler than a haunted abandoned amusement park?

Bukit Tunku

This neighbourhood is now home to the affluent and wealthy members of our society, but Bukit Tunku has built up a reputation for housing ghostly spirits that scare away visitors. Motorcyclists mysteriously disappearing in the dark, pontianak roaming about the place, and creepy noises heard in the night are just some of the stories circulating about Bukit Tunku. An abandoned colonial mansion in the area is the star attraction for ghost hunters, because of the alleged suicide of one of its residents (who is supposed to still be haunting the building until today). People have reported sudden drops in temperature, mysterious whiffs of fragrant perfume, and bright orbs floating about the place. Try not to get too frightened if you decide to explore the grounds!

This place actually has a grain of truth to its sinister reputation. According to real police reports, in 1992 a security guard who was hired by the family living there went berserk and chopped up the two American children and their maid who were residents of the house at the time. Their bodies were then dumped into a septic tank behind the house, and people claim that their souls are still roaming the building. Many have said that they’ve seen ghostly apparitions of children hanging about the compound, sometimes even waving at passersby. Upon entering the household, mementos from the 80s can still be found littered on the floor, like newspapers, children’s exercise books, postcards, and letters. Quite a surreal place, but unfortunately it has now been demolished. I’m sure the scary stories will live on though!

Victoria Institution, Jalan Hang Tuah

Image Credit: funnymalaysia.net

Seeing as Victoria Institution (a.k.a. VI) is one of the oldest schools in Malaysia, there will no doubt be an extensive list of paranormal incidents occurring within its grounds. Added to the fact that the school was apparently used during the Japanese occupation as a military base (and many stories of underground torture chambers and deaths occurring on campus), countless students have come forward with spooky tales of ghostly apparitions, sounds of marching soldiers, and spiritual possessions galore. There is also the infamous story of the boy who lost consciousness and found himself atop the school’s water tank, saying that all he remembered beforehand was approaching a lone girl wandering the campus and wanting to help her. If you don’t believe these stories, I’m sure most of the student population will be happy to rebuke you with their own experiences.

Highland Towers, Bukit Antarabangsa

Image Credit: The Star

Who hasn’t heard about the infamous Highland Towers? The unfortunate apartment buildings experienced a horrible tragedy back in 1993, when one of the residential blocks collapsed due to a landslide, killing 48 people within. Of course, with that many people falling victim to the disaster, it’s no wonder that many are claiming that the area is extremely haunted, with sounds of crying, wailing, and screaming being heard in the compound. Some have also claimed to have been possessed by spirits while ghost-hunting, and to have seen creepy figures lurking around at night. The remaining two apartment blocks were immediately abandoned after the tragedy, but they still stand in ruin today, mostly inhabited by criminals and drug addicts. Check them out if you dare, but make sure to bring some friends with you!

Poliklinik Cheras

Image Credit: arabellamira.blogspot.com

Also known as Lady Templer Hospital back in the day, this hospital was allegedly abandoned for no apparent reason in the 80s, and is said to be infested with the souls of those who were suffering and had died within its walls. Thrill-seekers have claimed that they’ve witnessed spooky figures of patients wandering the hallways, though of course there isn’t any concrete proof of the hospital’s haunting. The ghosts are apparently hostile towards guests! On a less drastic note, most people who step into its doors report immediate feelings of fear, goose bumps rising on their skin, and a chill through the air. Though the building has since been demolished and rebuilt as a new hospital, it still sounds quite creepy to me!

Karak Highway

Image Credit: mistresses-of-the-dark.blogspot.com

This highway has seen it’s fair share of deadly accidents over the past few decades, and I’m sure all of us have heard of at least one horror story of ghosts wandering its tarmac before. The 1990 road catastrophe that led to 17 people losing their lives on the highway has only fed the flames of supernatural rumors floating around about the place. The notorious yellow Volkswagen that will appear ahead of you on the road is a well-known story (obviously there is no driver in the front seat), as well as the little boy with bloody eyes asking for his mother. Apparently, these ghostly incidents have died down over recent years, and some have said that the ghosts have probably moved on. Still, if you’re curious enough to check it out, you’re welcome to!

Hauntu Experience

Untitled-design-2-2.jpg (1000×500)

While this might not be a true-life paranormal experience in itself, it would still likely send chills up your spine. A 3-part series of spooks, Hauntu is an immersive theatrical haunted house experience consisting of real life actors in the setting of a creepy fictional hotel called the Colle Eastern Hotel. What’s interesting about this experience is that guests get to play certain roles and interact with the actors in order to somewhat “solve” the mystery and make it out of the maze-like game alive. Comprising of several episodes in total, the experience will journey through different eras of the hotel⁠—from when it’s fully functioning to when it’s completely derelict and obsolete.

Find out more about Hauntu here .

Bonus: Amber Court, Genting Highlands

Image Credit: tripzilla.com

Ok so this one isn’t in KL, but it’s legendary so we had to include it in this list.

This used to be a popular accommodation for visitors to Genting Highlands, but now that its gotten its reputation as one of the most haunted places in Malaysia, I’m sure most people would stay far, far away. The tall, rundown building has stemmed countless supernatural stories of ghosts howling in the night, torrential winds in enclosed spaces, banging, knocking, humming, screaming, footsteps, appearance of sinister apparitions and spirits, and more. Amber Court isn’t the only haunted place in Genting Highlands though, as many report other accommodations like Ria Apartment, First World Hotel, and Genting Highlands Resort to be extremely haunted, due to numerous deaths and suicides that have occurred there. It all sounds too real to not believe, and seeing as so many people have reported creepy incidents in the area, perhaps it’s best to just stay away from all that bad energy.

Would you dare to visit these places and hunt for some supernatural entities? I sure wouldn’t. Let us know if you’ve encountered and paranormal beings in these places before!

14 Haunted Places In Malaysia & The Horrors You’ll Experience When You Visit Them

The most haunted places in Malaysia

It is often said that you shouldn’t dabble with what is unseen – which is why things such as summoning, taunting, or speaking ill of any paranormal creature is said to be highly taboo.

This does not, however, stop courageous and thrill-seeking ghost hunters from visiting Malaysia’s haunted places in hopes of making contact with someone or something from another world. Here are 14 haunted places in Malaysia and what people who have visited them said they have experienced.

haunted places malaysia - kellie's castle

The story: This elaborate mansion in Perak was owned by Scotsman William Kellie Smith. But after he passed away from pneumonia before it could be completed, it was left abandoned for over 80 years after his death before it became a well-known attraction for visitors in 2000.

It has also racked up a mysterious reputation, with the discovery of 4 hidden tunnels under the house where over 70 workers were said to have died from the Spanish flu while working on them.

haunted places malaysia - kellie's castle

What you may experience or encounter: According to many who visited the mansion, Smith’s restless spirit has been seen roaming a balcony that’s now marked with a plaque that reads “Ghostly Cloister Balcony”. While he didn’t die in the house, his spirit is said to remain here because his dream of building a mansion was never completed and later neglected.

3 other haunted spots in the mansion are known for unsightly encounters too. Smith’s 6-year-old daughter has also been seen wearing an all-white ensemble and running around her abandoned bedroom. A worker of Smith’s who died in the house is also said to haunt the laundry room, while the wine cellar that leads into the mysterious tunnels is also home to unidentified entities.

The story: Mimaland – shortened from Malaysia in Miniature Land – was Malaysia’s first theme park that opened in 1975 in Gombak. It featured a sports park, water park, and prehistoric animal park with life-sized dinosaurs that made it the must-visit place of every kid growing up in the 70s and 80s.

But a series of tragic mishaps plagued the park, including a Singaporean tourist’s death on a water slide and a landslide that damaged the same pool where the accident happened a year later.

The park was forced to cease operations in 1994 because of security issues, after which its name entered many lists of haunted places in Malaysia. It’s now left abandoned, with remnants of the amusement park’s attractions scattered around, giving the whole area an eerie vibe.

The villa is abandoned, and its owners are still a mystery. It is surrounded by numerous speculations and rumours with different versions. As per one of the versions, a wealthy family lived here with their only daughter Nabila. The parents died in an accident, and Nabila became the sole heir of their property and wealth. One day, their housemaid killed her out of greed and buried her in one of the villa’s walls. In another version, the jealous maid killed the entire family to steal their immense wealth.

If you visit this place, it is better to stay together to be safe. Many people reported seeing a girl in white there. It is so popular that a film named Villa Nabila (2015) has been made based on the actual incidents that happened here.

Mona Fandey’s House

haunted places in malaysia

Mona Fandey or Mona Fendi’s house, is one of the first names that pops up when it comes to haunted places in Malaysia.

The singer-turned-bomoh, Fandey and her husband brutally killed a politician named Mazlan Idris using black magic in 1993 with their devoted assistant. Apparently, the infamous black magic practitioner promised him power and wealth. Instead, she partially skinned, chopped him into pieces, and buried him in her backyard. The couple and their assistant Juraimi Hassan were sentenced to death in 2001. Her name is forever engraved in Malaysian crime history and folklore because of her last words, “ Saya tidak akan mati ” meaning “I will never die.”

Locals believe that her house is haunted owing to her evil practices and remains, and it is avoided by visitors as much as possible.

Karak Highway

haunted places in Malaysia

When in Malaysia, you have to cross the Karak highway to reach the two most popular tourist destinations of Malaysia — Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands. Numerous paranormal activities and unfortunate car accidents have occurred on this infamous highway. The horror movie Karak: Laluan Puaka (2011) is based on the real incidents that happened here.

Some of the spooky stories revolving around this place include that of a yellow Volkswagen , often seen on the road, that chases one down the highway and that of a lost young boy looking for his mother. Another popular story goes by that of a beautiful woman asking for lift who’s actually not a human.

Drivers have often reported experiencing an invisible person in the car whenever they cross the road. It’s advised not to go there at night and definitely not alone.

Kellie’s Castle

Kellie's castle

One of the most intriguing examples of fine masonry in Malaysia, Kellie’s castle belonged to a young Scotsman, William Kellie Smith. The story of the abandoned bungalow has a tragic and mysterious angle, along with love, of course. Kellie Smith built this architectural gem with a hint of Moorish, Indo-Saracenic and Roman influence to express his love for his family. But unfortunately, he lost his fortune and suddenly died of pneumonia in Lisbon on a trip back to Europe. The grieving family didn’t make their way to Malaysia, leaving the castle unfinished.

Rumours are rife that the Japanese army used the mansion to torture and kill prisoners during the war. Some say their souls still wander in the building, while some visitors reported experiencing Smith’s spirit roaming around the castle’s balcony, now named ‘Ghostly Cloister Balcony.’ Many even reported sightings of his 6-year-old daughter playing in the abandoned bedroom wearing an all-white ensemble.

Address: 5, Jalan Gopeng, 31000 Batu Gajah, Perak, Malaysia

Mimaland

‘Malaysia in Miniature Land’ or Mimaland was one the first theme parks in the country, featuring life-size dinosaur replicas, water slides, a giant ride and many more amusement options. However, it was forced to shut down in 1994 because of several unfortunate incidents. People believe that the park was built on cursed grounds. Though there aren’t exactly any spooky stories about the place, it’s still very creepy to walk around the abandoned site. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

The death of a 27-year-old Singaporean tourist , the freaky landslide that destroyed the big pool, and other security issues and mishaps never left Mimaland. The redevelopment plans also failed numerous times as a sign of continuous bad luck.

Address: Jalan Gombak, 53100, Selangor, Malaysia

Highland Tower

haunted places in malaysia

While speaking of the most haunted places in Malaysia, one cannot miss mentioning Highland Towers. Ten days of continuous rain and a disastrous landslide demolished one of the buildings of the tower, killing 48 lives.

After the incident, many adjoining buildings were left abandoned, and they became a common place for illicit activities. However, even after over two decades, the site is rumoured to be haunted. Ghost hunters have reported many incidents involving an infant and an old lady. Oddly enough, a 77-year-old grandmother and an eight-month-old infant were two of the casualties reported.

Amber Court

Amber court

Amber Court in Genting Highlands, opposite the First World Hotel , was built as a resort. But, due to the financial crisis of 1997-98, it was sold as apartments. The unoccupied apartments and the red algae spots on the building walls that resemble blood stains give it an eerie look.

Its reputation as one of the haunted places in Malaysia made it a popular dark tourism destination. Many spooky stories of suicide and paranormal activities float about this place. It is available as a homestay for truth-seeking courageous individuals. Many guests have shared numerous stories, including that of a headless woman, howling noises and sounds of slamming doors. A local flick named Haunted Hotel 2 was filmed here, reestablishing the paranormal occurrences.

Address: Amber Court, Jalan Ion D’Elemen, 69000 Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia

99 door Mansion/ Byram Estate/ Caledonia House

99-door mansion

The Byram Estate, a 99-door house, was once the luxury residence of a wealthy family. Terror took over the mansion when the owner John St Maur Ramsden, was horrifically murdered in 1948. Even after many court trials, the killer is still unidentified, and the house has been abandoned for over 50 years.

According to local stories, a famous local witch doctor took over the residence and practised black magic rituals to summon demons. The place looks creepy, and locals have heard inhuman growls and unexplained sounds from inside the abandoned building. Many ghost hunters and investigators also reported an unexplainable evil presence here. It’s better to avoid the area after sundown for safety reasons.

Address: Jalan Byram, 14300 Nibong Tebal, Penang, Malaysia

Jalan Turi Bungalow

This haunted house is another crime scene of gruesome murders. In 1992, two American kids of Indian origin and their domestic help were killed in this house by their security guard. He dumped their bodies in a septic tank behind the house. The motive of the murder is still unknown, but many attribute it to his psychological disorder .

The bungalow is demolished now, but locals still avoid the place as many have experienced recurring haunted sightings. Locals have heard screaming children and seen ghosts in the area. Repurposing the site is still unsuccessful without any particular known reason. Next time, if you plan to visit this place or any similar haunted places in Malaysia, be warned.

Address: Jalan Turi, Bukit Bandaraya, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Penang War Museum

haunted places in Malaysia

Also called ‘Ghost Hill’, this place was named one of the ten scariest places to visit in Asia by National Geographic because of the cataclysmic events that happened there.

It is one of Malaysia’s dark tourism attractions featuring plastic corpses and guillotines for a frightening experience. People have heard the screaming sounds of the victims and experienced glimpses of Suzuki wandering in the subways of the museum.

Address: Jalan Batu Maung, 11960 Batu Maung, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

Shih Chung Branch School

haunted places in malaysia

Built in 1880, the magnificent building was a Chinese house used as a hotel. It was even used as an administrative headquarters for the Japanese military during the Second World War, as per various reports.

It was later turned into a school, and according to folklore and school authorities, many people were tortured and executed within these grounds, and their souls still wander around this place.

The overgrown plants and trees on the abandoned school ground add more creepiness to its enigma. Moreover, sudden hysteria attacks while crossing this place are common, as locals share.

9 Famous Malaysian Ghosts & Where To Find Them

Subscribe to our new  Telegram  channel for the latest updates.

E very culture has its own ghouls and ghost stories. Of course, growing up Malaysian (or if you’ve been in this part of the world long enough), you’ll have heard of these haunting creatures of the night! While many believe that there is no such thing as haunted spirits, there are others who swear to have encountered scary sightings. Stories about entities knocking in the night, from nature spirits to malicious devils, will send goosebumps down the spines of even the most sceptical person. If you’re not already familiar with Malaysian hantus, read on to find out about the kinds of ghosts we have, and more importantly, where to find them!

1. Pontianak

View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Datai Langkawi (@thedatailangkawi)

Possibly the most well-known supernatural being, thanks to the variety of Malay movies featuring this creature, pontianak is believed to be the ghost of a pregnant woman. They are typically shown as long-haired, pale-skinned, jasmine-scented, and clad in all-white attire. Said to take on the appearance of lovely maidens to lure men, this creature’s non-threatening appearance is most likely how it draws its victims in before digging its long nails into their stomachs and consuming their organs. Pontianak is also infamous for dismembering male reproductive parts to exact vengeance! 

Where to find them According to legend, they prefer to hang out amongst banana trees or other large trees with plenty of shade and prey on unwary men. Tourists holidaying at The Datai in Langkawi have claimed seeing ‘strange’ images on their pictures taken in the rainforest, and in their hotel rooms.

2. Hantu pocong

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Lindie ? 린디 • 琳迪 • リンコ (@lindiebotes)

Islamic tradition mentions that hantu pocong , also known as the shroud ghost, is the deceased’s spirit wrapped in a white cloth called the kain kafan (plain white cloth). Strings will be tied above the head, around the neck, and below the feet to hold the fabric on the body throughout the rite.

Many Malays and Indonesians believe that the body will emerge from the grave to remind people to release their souls if the knots are not removed during the burial or within 40 days. They can ‘teleport’ since they are not affected by gravity, and can be found ‘loitering’ anywhere from their ultimate resting place to their former houses.

Where to find them The Penang War Museum is host to all sorts of weird and creepy artefacts. Visitors have claimed the paranormal activity of ghosts and demons, which locals believe are the trapped souls of those tortured and murdered by the Japanese Imperial Army. It won’t be a surprise to see a pocong hopping around the area. A fun fact to note – it’s believed that you could become wealthy if you hug a pocong , though we don’t recommend this!

Do you live alone and find that your money or things mysteriously vanish? That could be a toyol visiting your house stealing the possessions of others to enrich their masters.

Shamans or witch doctors (called bomoh ) call on the souls of stillborn babies or dead human foetuses known as toyol . These tiny creatures can be purchased from witch doctors for various purposes and are typically used by their owners to steal stuff or wreak havoc in others’ lives. Southeast Asians believe that a toyol is responsible for our money or jewellery disappearing mysteriously. Toyols are childlike: mischievous, a little clumsy, a little needy, and easily distracted. Not to be mistaken for your actual human babies running around your house!

Every morning, owners must feed the spirit milk, provide toys, light a black candle, play mantras, and occasionally put a piece of the owner’s blood on the statue to keep it happy. Toyols are said to be easy to deceive and distract, usually with mirrors and needles.

Where to find them The former Mandarin Pacific Hotel (now shut) in the centre of Kuala Lumpur is said to be haunted by these tiny creatures. Late at night, many reports hearing doors and chairs moving, as well as marbles dropping on the floor, and all evidence points to room 1102 as the primary suspect. Unless you’re incredibly brave, perhaps don’t venture into the now-closed property. 

4. Hungry ghosts

View this post on Instagram A post shared by ᴛʜɪɴᴀ ᴘʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ (@thina.photography)

According to Chinese beliefs, the gates of hell will open on the seventh month of the Lunar calendar, and spirits will be released into our world. Like the existing spirits roaming our world, these souls from hell are often ‘hungry,’ as they rely on descendants to burn hell money and feed them.

Some spirits are said to be naughty and play practical jokes on humans. Others seeking vengeance will frequently visit people or locations. On the seventh month, there have been numerous reports of ghost sightings. Around this time, you may notice food offerings on the streets or at the front gates of some homes. A few of your friends may even warn you against spending too much time outside, believing that spirits will follow you!

So be cautious during this Lunar month: you never know when an ancestor might stop by to pay you a visit.

Where to find them Those looking for a ghostly adventure can check-in at First World Hotel, Genting Highlands . The ghosts of suicide victims who lost everything at the casino are rumoured to haunt this resort hotel. Stories claim that some children scream for no apparent reason and refuse to enter certain areas of the hotel. Guests who are otherwise healthy become unwell for no reason at all, and you can smell incense, which the Chinese believe is food for ghosts.

Some of the hotel’s 6,118 rooms are cursed, and the hotel never rents them out to guests, even when it’s at full occupancy. Widespread whispers say that the entire 21st floor is cursed, and the elevator always skips that floor for some reason.

The mohini is said to be the spirit of a woman who killed herself without ever experiencing love. If a woman’s sexual urge was not satisfied while she was living, she will become a mohini after she dies. She’s enraged and is out to ruin the lives of happy couples. Creepy! 

To any man, they will appear to look gorgeous in order to attract them. Some folks are mortally afraid of these things, and so they should be. Someone who can tear you limb from limb while chilling in a coconut tree is not to be messed with. 

Aside from a homicidal aura and a fondness for coconuts, this demon has a lethal scent that can seduce you to your death.

Where to find them Tourists staying at the Amber Court Hotel and Ria Apartment in Genting Highlands said they have felt as though there were eyes constantly watching them, despite there being no one in sight! But profound haunting experiences include hearing a creepy voice howling like a hybrid of girl and wolf in the middle of an empty hallway, and people running amok inside the room.

6. Penanggalan

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Andri Said (@andri_said)

The penaggalan are usually female body-less heads with internal organs fluttering around. They are, without a doubt, one of the most heinous-looking demonic spirits on this list, thought to be miscarriage victims who feed on human blood to feed their dead kids. Some people even believe they died while giving birth. 

Another version claims that the penanggalans are midwives who agreed to deliver infants to the devil for youthful appearances. If the midwives mistakenly consume meat within the first 40 days, the devil will convert the midwife into a penanggalan .

Where to find them Shih Chung Branch School, the infamous haunted school in Penang was a slaughterhouse for Japanese soldiers during the Second World War. There are accounts of people experiencing hysteria and spine-chilling feelings when they stand near the property. There are no records of how many people died here, which makes it even more horrifying. The building has been abandoned since then and left to ruin.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Gary Wong Kee Meng (@gary_wong_kee_meng)

Two words: pet cemetery.  The mao gui , or cat ghosts, are malevolent feline spirits who seek vengeance on all humans for their crimes against cats. Cats were allegedly frequently sacrificed in ancient times, and as a result, the mao gui had an axe to grind. Though they may look like ordinary cats from afar, these fearsome felines have murder on their agenda, and will do everything in their power to make their tormentors’ lives a living nightmare. You may want to double-check if your cute little kitty cat is actually alive, and not a demon cat back from the dead hungry for revenge.

Where to find them The Nirvana Pet Memorial Garden is a one-stop funeral service that offers everything from pet funerals to cremation and burial services. While no ghosts seem to have been cited, the idea of a dead animal haunting you is still creepy enough.

8. Orang minyak

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Didie Dame (@didiedame)

The orang minyak (oily man) is a supernatural being summoned and controlled by malevolent bomoh , who primarily aim to cause havoc. The o rang minyak can cover his entire body in a black oily material that renders him virtually undetectable at night, difficult to catch, and makes breaking and entering extremely easy. 

They are believed to have made a deal with the devil to gain power or reclaim their loved ones. In exchange, the person must worship the devil and rape 21 virgins in one week. The orang minyak can also climb walls and the edges of big buildings and jump long distances on rooftops. Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to find some Venom -looking person on top of you. 

Where to find them What makes this hantu even more terrifying is that orang minyak is still terrorising people today. A knife-wielding o rang minyak was reported roaming about Kuala Lumpur Hospital in 2005, attempting to rape nurses. In 2012, residents of a village near Gombak, Selangor, claimed to have sighted these threatening creatures lurking around in the night.

9. Hantu Raya

No, this is not a ghost that haunts only during Hari Raya . The hantu Raya (when directly translated, it means ghost of Raya) is a powerful and terrifying ghost who is controlled by a human master. The hantu Raya is sometimes compared to a demon because he is the master of all spirits. These ghouls bargain with their human owners in exchange for power and certain life benefits, like riches. In exchange, the owner or master, must care for the ghost and find a new home before dying. The hantu Raya is frequently passed down from generation to generation because of this.

When its ‘master’ dies without untying its bond with the ghost, the owner will suffer tremendously while dying. The hantu Raya will then assume the shape of its previous owner while cruising the streets at night looking for food and a new home. 

According to another legend, if the owner does not break their relationship with the spirit, it will ‘live forever’. The haunted spirit will suffer and, like a zombie, turn into a living corpse. As for now, no one knows how to get rid of a hantu Raya , so if any of you do, please do not hesitate to be in touch! Until then, keep your fingers crossed that your family does not give you a ghost for your birthday. 

Where to find them Who knows, really? These ones can turn up at a fancy restaurant or even your next party pretending to be someone else.

9 Haunted Locations In Malaysia For The Horror Enthusiast

9 Haunted Locations In Malaysia For The Horror Enthusiast

In November 2017 I had the privilege of taking a personally guided tour with Zahren and Josh from Unseen Tours around the streets of KL.  Having visited the downtown area before, I was amazed at the amount of detail I’d missed. My tour navigated back streets, heritage buildings, political history (In a nerd) and the scenes of alleged ghost sightings, as well as filling me in on life on the streets of KL from the perspective of two people who’ve lived on them. I enjoyed every minute of my 2.5 hours, which was all very walkable, and visited spots most tourists would miss.  I recommend flat shoes, an umbrella (to fend off rain and sun), water and lots of questions. Zahren was charming, witty and genuine. No question was too dumb. This guy knows his stuff!  Best of luck with this venture, guys.  Hope to see you again next time I’m in KL.”

COMING SOON

Few buildings and locations in Kuala Lumpur are reportedly haunted by mystical beings and spiritual presence. Many urban legends have sprung up from these places, with numerous people claiming to have witnessed unusual activity, experienced hair-raising incidents, or even possessed by spirits themselves. If you’re a thrill-seeker looking for somewhere creepy to explore, or if you’re a skeptical tourist who wants to have a different perspective of KL City, we have the best walking tour designed for you.

Distance:  About 3.5 kilometers

The 25 greatest ghost films

Posted: November 22, 2023 | Last updated: November 22, 2023

<p>M. Night Shyamalan became an overnight filmmaking sensation with his "I see dead people" sleeper hit, "The Sixth Sense." It was a simple ghost story imparted with supreme confidence — the low-key, gather-round-the-campfire antidote to the artless CG excess of Jan de Bont's horrid adaptation of Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting." When it comes to spinning a good, ghostly yarn, the build's the thing. Setting, characterization, atmosphere...get your audience to hang on every word. Fire the imagination and <em>then</em> spring the trap. That's what the following filmmakers did in these exquisite tales of the paranormal. Even "Hausu" required setup.</p>

<p>Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s J-horror masterpiece is a deliberately paced nightmare machine of a movie in which ghosts are faintly viewable via webcam.

Peter Jackson’s first studio film flopped at the box office, but this restlessly imaginative horror-comedy stands as a worthy companion to “Ghostbusters." Michael J. Fox stars as a paranormally attuned conman who teams with three ghostly accomplices to stage bogus exorcisms. Fox’s skills wind up proving vital when the spirit of a deceased mass murderer begins knocking off the living to up his body count. Jackson careens from juvenile comedy to blood-curdling horror with such abandon that you expect him to eventually literally lose the plot. Instead, he wraps up the film with a brilliantly edited hospital sequence that might be the best thing the Academy Award-filmmaker has ever done.

<p>What sounded like a lazy “Saturday Night Live” sketch or, worse, a retread of a so-so Bob Hope/Paulette Goddard vehicle wound up being a lightning-in-a-bottle smash that dominated the 1984 box office. The key to the film’s success, aside from Bill Murray being Bill Murray, is that it’s legitimately frightening when it needs to be. Ivan Reitman’s movie opens with a sensational scare in the New York Public Library and scatters a series of massive jumps throughout (courtesy of a crack ILM visual f/x team that included John Bruno and Richard Edlund). Even people who hate horror movies rushed out to see “Ghostbusters." Save for “The Frighteners”, there hasn’t been anything like it since. </p><p>You may also like: <a href='https://www.yardbarker.com/entertainment/articles/23_of_the_best_new_tv_shows_in_2023/s1__39430590'>23 of the best new TV shows in 2023</a></p>

<p>William Castle’s finest hour and 15 minutes stars Vincent Price in fiendishly fine form as a millionaire who baits five financially struggling schemers with the promise of $10,000 if they can hack it out for one night in a haunted house. Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Ennis House serves as the exterior for the mansion, which gives the low-budget film a flair it might’ve otherwise lacked. Castle enticed audiences with the “Emergo” gimmick, which involved little more than a skeleton being flung out at the audience during a climactic scene. It worked.

<p>This wackadoodle horror-comedy melange makes “A Chinese Ghost Story” look like “The Innocents." When the Japanese film studio Toho asked writer-director Nobuhiko Obayashi in the mid-1970s to make a movie akin to “Jaws," he hit up his 12-year-old daughter, Chigumi, for ideas. This is how we were blessed with the story of seven schoolgirls — with names like Gorgeous, Fantasy and Kung Fu — who make the ill-fated mistake of dropping by a carnivorous house. You might say it’s “Little Red Riding Hood” on acid, but, really, it’s a fever dream of a whole lot of stuff on acid. And it’s an exhilaratingly great trip.</p><p>You may also like: <a href='https://www.yardbarker.com/entertainment/articles/20_facts_you_might_not_know_about_tropic_thunder_111423/s1__37882946'>20 facts you might not know about 'Tropic Thunder'</a></p>

<p>Herk Harvey’s massively influential ghost story is an early triumph of American independent cinema and a testament as to what a talented director with a unique vision can pull off on a shoestring budget. This tale of a woman who takes a job as an organist in Salt Lake City after mysteriously surviving a car accident in Kansas isn’t terribly suspenseful; the twist ending should be clear to anyone paying attention.

<p>The idea of spending most of a film in an empty apartment with a celebrity’s personal shopper might sound positively tedious, but Olivier Assayas’ 2016 triumph turns this premise into a stylishly strange and unconventionally eerie ghost story.

As bizarre, unexplained phenomena begin occurring in Stewart’s life, Assayas ratchets up the suspense in wholly unexpected ways.</p>
