Psychological care has come a long way in the last 150 years. There is a reason, however, why so many haunted houses have asylum themes. Sure, those who were placed there had their own inner demons to deal with, but the people who were in charge of “caring” for them did some pretty sinister things themselves. Take this creepy photo for example. Looks like something you’d see in POW camp, not a mental health facility.
Dolls are creepy. But a whole town full of them? Even creepier. In the 1950s, the United States government carried out a series atomic bomb tests on fake towns constructed in the Nevada desert. Populating these doomed hamlets were dozens of mannequins that served as test subjects in the blasts. The photo above, taken by a military-grade camera, depicts one such mannequin family at the precise moment of destruction. A flash of light pours through the window as the venetian blinds begin to melt from the heat.
