MANILA, Philippines - Most Filipinos have a penchant for spooky places and ghost hunting. With the long weekend and Halloween coming up, why not visit some of the most haunted places in the country?
1. Ozone Disco
In 1996, around 150 people died due to a fire inside Ozone Disco, a trendy club located in the corner of Timog and Tomas Morato Avenues in Quezon City. Due to excessive panicking and lack of proper fire exits, no one was able to come out alive.
When the fire was extinguished and firemen were able to enter the building, most of the bodies they found were piled near the locked exits, trying until their very last breath to get out and escape the fire.
To this day, residents who live where the club used to be say they still see eerie figures dancing in the area late at night. Sometimes, they also hear faint disco music and screams.
2. Manila City Hall
From above, the Manila City Hall looks like a coffin with a cross. If that isn't creepy enough for you, employees often share stoies of how they hear footsteps and whispers behind them at night, only to find out that they are alone.

WWII vets often cite Corregidor as one of the bastions of the war. Fallen soldiers are said to haunt the island, from the dilapidated hospital to the remnants of the old theater that used to play Hollywood movies for American and Filipino soldiers.
Aside from the war's casualties that still roam the island, there are also said to be about 60 more souls who were killed by the Marcos regime. The mass murder was called the Jabidah Massacre.
