The very haunted Eastern State Penitentiary is one extremely harrowing location, it has been featured on many paranormal programs and from the evidence gathered and unexplained experiences of guests and investigators - it is no wonder why it has the dark reputation that it does.
Although the intentions of prison reformers in the early 1800's was to issue an environment that led to penitent rehabilitation, isolation can do strange things to a person. Even when prisoners were allowed the few hours of the day to exercise their legs they were forced to wear sacks over their heads (eye holes were not added until the early 1900's). Full-bodied apparitions have been seen wandering aimlessly and sightlessly still adorning the sack over their heads.
Other dark presences said to still be lurking the hallways are those of the more notorious inmates that served time in the prison. From Alphonse "Scarface" Capone to William "Blackie" Zupkoski, the former residents make up a melee of murders, mobsters and bank robbers. Would you want to run into one of these guys in the dark?!?
In the 1920's and 1930's, one of the hardest Wardens came through Eastern State Penitentiary. With his cruel reign prisoners were introduced to forms of torture like the ice cold water baths, being strapped immobile to chairs for days on end and forced starvation. The imprint of the treatment of inmates has left a negative energy that lures in guests and investigators - are you going to be next to suffer?
Objects moving, cell doors slamming, prisoners roaming, disembodied moaning - Eastern State Penitentiary will leave you shaken to the core. Are you prepared for what's waiting for you in the dark?
