11. The dybbuk box

A wine cabinet may not strike you as the most obvious item to be haunted. But according to Kevin Mannis, a dybbuk – or evil spirit – resides inside one particular box he sold on eBay. And there may be some truth to Mannis’ assertions. That’s because people have apparently experienced shared nightmares, health issues and even a stroke while in possession of the creepy cabinet.

10. The Woman from Lemb statue

This spooky statue, discovered in 1878 but dated to around 3,500 B.C., has reportedly resulted in the deaths of no fewer than four different families. That’s right: not just the specific owners, but their entire families, too. All seven members of Lord Elphont’s clan are said to have perished within six years of him obtaining the artifact, for instance. And even the curator who took possession of it for the National Museum of Scotland is alleged to have died less than a year on.
