This article will be covering the Wan Chai House on Nam Koo Terrace, which is considered to be one of the most haunted locations in Hong Kong…
In November, 2003, a group of young teenage locals decided to go on a bit of a ‘ghost hunt’ around certain locations nearby – the Wan Chai Haunted House topped their list.
They had heard that even by simply stepping onto the property, was enough to drive some visitors mad with feelings of appalling loneliness.
The students got into the house without any problems, and set up a small party-like campsite inside one of the abandoned rooms. One of the teenagers had decided to bring a Ouija board…
The young group set everything up, and decided to attempt to contact a few spirits. During this Ouija session, three of the young girls involved started to have visions of awful images that they couldn’t shake.
The group decided to quit the session but it was too late…one of the young girls had turned completely psychotic.
The group had experienced enough of the house, and all of them fled to the front gates…but the psychotic girl was unable to cross the gate line and leave the property. The other two girls that were effected by the Ouija session, suddenly started hearing the voice of a man, calling them back into the house, and up to the second floor!
The group of youngsters decided to phone the police for help. When they arrived they forcefully attempted to remove the ‘psychotic’ girl from the property, but she kept on attacking them like a savage animal.
They eventually managed to drag her into their car and she was sent off to a hospital for psychiatric assessment and treatment.
Her two female friends, who heard the male voice, also went with her.
The following day the media got hold of the story…and the Ouija session became nationwide news.
The Dark House
This house has a pretty bad history linked to it…
It was built in 1920 and purchased and leased by prominent Chinese businessman named To Chun-man. During the 1940’s, when the Japanese invaded and occupied Hong Kong, the house got turned into a military den of iniquity.
Over this period there were many reports of local women being snatched by Japanese soldiers and dragged into the building. They were then apparently raped, tortured and then killed.
There are also old reports that suggest the bodies of these unfortunate women were decapitated by the soldiers, and then left to rot on the streets outside.
Over the years the house has also been known as a bit of a popular suicide spot – several bodies have been recovered from the house (the most recent in 2010).
The Ghosts of Wan Chai
Most of the paranormal reports which come out of the house involve apparitions of headless blood-stained women. They are said to be screaming out in pain…but once you hear their screams…it takes hours to block them back out.
The ghost of a man in black has been seen wandering the building on occasion – many believe this male ghost to be the voice the two teenage girls heard, calling them back into the house.
These days nobody really ventures into the house at night – even ghost hunters arrange their investigations for the daylight hours.
