If you dare to venture out of your vehicle on foot the look out for the trees!

The tree's wooded limbs stretch, in an effort to reach out and grab you. Perhaps the trees are attempting to warn you of things to come if you dare to continue on, but many claim that the heavily wooded area where the trees breathe life are where the ghosts congregate, and if you are quiet, you can watch their every move until they catch site of those that dare to trespass on their sacred grounds.

Now I have to admit, a couple of years ago I took a walk along Bloods Point Rd just north of  Bloods Point Cemetery and don't recall any of that that happening, but if you let your imagination wander, you never know.

Dare to take a night take a night ride on Bloods Point Rd.?

Ever notice how everything looks scarier when it's nighttime and images appear in black and white?

What's so scary about Blood's Point Cemetery (besides the spooky name)? According to, throughout the years cemetery visitors say that have encountered:

  • Hellhounds guarding the cemetery
  • Dogs that come out of nowhere and attack visitors, then instantly disappear

If you make it to Bloods Point Cemetery, especially during the months of September and October, don't try to enter the cemetery grounds as Boone County Police maintain presence to keep potential vandals away from the area.

Here's a peek at how the cemetery looks during daylight hours. Unfortunately, vandalism from some individuals has caused  damage to Blood's Point.

if you visit, please be respectful of the neighbors and the cemetery grounds, if you don't the spirits will release the Hellhounds on you.
