Spooky Google Maps

Halloween Mash-Up

Plan your Halloween with this great mash-up of Upcoming, Yahoo Local, Flickr and Google Maps. Select your location from a drop down menu and the map shows you Halloween parties and events in your area.

Map of the Dead

This zombie shooting game is one of Google's own creations. The game-play is very simple - you have one minute to shoot as many zombies as you can. Although I might be mistaken, the game seems to be taking place at the University of Southern California so those might be students and not zombies. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

If you are thinking of venturing out tonight, perhaps you should consult this map first. This colour-coded Google Map mash-up geo-tags apparitions, demons, ectoplasm and many other types of spooky beings.

Disturbia Suburbia
Disturbia Map
This Google Map was created for the film Disturbia. Enter your zip code and the map will tell you about all the disturbing freaks, loons and frightening nutcases in your neighbourhood.

The World's Creepiest Places

This is a Google Maps mash-up of the creepiest places in the world. Go on, I dare you to visit The Manchac Swamp, a.k.a. the "haunted swamp", where an imprisoned voodoo queen cast a curse on all those who visit. Mwaa ha ha ...


Apparently there are quite a few ghosts in Sao Paolo. Luckily Bogomaps has created this map of all the haunted houses in the Brazilian city.

Halloween Maps
This Google Map shows the locations of web surfers who have taken a look at the Halloween lights and inflatables outside a house in Boulder, Colorado via a Halloween webcam.

Pumpkin Patches

Halloween festivals, parties, haunted houses and pumpkin patches in Sacramento.

Thanks to Mapperz for help in compiling this frightening list of maps.

Spooky Street View
Google Sightseeing have produced a nice round-up of Halloween related Street Views. Lots and lots of pumpkins.

I tried the Disturbia map in my town.

"Stanley O'Connor, 41, is an accountant from ---- who has not missed a day of work in over 22 years. He lives alone in a modest three-story walk up with his extensive doll collection."

We don't have three-story walk-ups in this town, and certainly not in the middle of a park. Bleh, dumb.

The Disturbia map just randomly creates a message - it doesn't actually do any geocoding.
