Pyramids are well-known to contain a curse. It seems they were meant for a specific purpose and after the purpose was served, they were not meant to be disturbed under any circumstances. For those who dare deviate, you will meet your doom via the curses infliction. The great pyramid of Giza was just recently reopened in spite of those curses. The workers tomb was discovered 30 years ago but now it is opened to the public. The tomb is 4,500 years old and contains the remains of workers who built the pyramid, along with the man who supervised them in his own sectioned off 'palace'. This supervisor was said to have placed many curses on the tomb in order to protect the dead from thievery. According to the inscription of the curse in the tomb - you will meet your doom by snake or scorpion by land, and crocodile or hippopotamus in water - AKA, your ass is cursed - you're doomed! Go visit if you want but let me know if you get smashed in the water by a hippo. In all seriousness though, these curses are real and scary.
Otzi the Cursed Frozen Mummy
Meet Otzi. He is a frozen mummified man that was discovered in 1991 in the Otztal Alps. He lived thousands of years ago during the copper age. Otzi was estimated to have been about 5'3" tall and about 45 years old at the time of death. Death was believed to have been caused by an arrow piercing an artery followed by a blow to the head. Not a very nice way to go. Some believe he was cursed via a sacrifice ritual. The man who discovered Otzi died from a fall while hiking but that didn't happen for 13 years after he discovered Otzi's body. The man that headed the rescue team to find the missing man who fell while hiking suffered a heart attack. The pathologist who examined Otzi died in a car crash only a year afterward. The man who assisted the pathologist died in an avalanche. Maybe Otzi was to never be disturbed from his eternal frozen slumber. You can visit Otzi at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy.
Cursed Haunted Painting
This painting is known as the Anguished Man Painting and one look will give it away. This cursed painting is more likely to be viewed as haunted. The curse was brought about by the artist himself. As you can clearly see by the painting, the person depicted is indeed deeply tormented. The lucky owner of this portrait claims that he was mysteriously drawn to this painting as a child. It was hidden in his grandmother's basement. After his grand-mom passed away, he decided to hang the painting against his wife's wishes. It wasn't long before paranormal occurrences began including moving doors and screams. The entire family began to have horrible nightmares night after night. Deciding to learn more about the painting, he discovered that the artist committed suicide but before he did, he painted this eerie and tormented picture mixing his own blood with the paint he used. This action - along with his extreme negative emotional state cursed him and bound him to the Earth plane - more likely to the painting. There is a possibility that this anguished soul had a negative entity attachment that 'guided' him to do this. This type of demonic activity is not unusual.
The Maori Mask Curse
The Maori people originated from Polynesia and arrived in New Zealand between 1250 and 1300. The males would have full face tattoos. These warriors would carve masks or statues before battle. Each mask would be designed to tell a story unique to the person making it. It is said that if a Maori warrior dies in battle, their spirit would attach itself to the mask. The Maori people believed that a pregnant or menstruating woman was taboo because they bring bad luck and harm, which in turn would bring this taboo to the battlefield So the curse of these masks would target pregnant women should they come before the mask that contains the soul of a deceased Maori warrior.
In Sweden there are a group of very old rune-stones dating back to the sixth century. They are approximately 13.5 feet tall. Some of the stones are grouped together in a circle. Some of them are standing alone. The stones are inscripted with a curse apparently cast by their master claiming they are infused with power. Anyone who tries to disturb or destroy the monument will perish - it was a prophecy of destruction. A legend associated with this curse is that a man was going to remove the stones to have more land in which to grow crops. His plan was to heat the stones then use cold water to crack them. As he lit the fire on a day where no wind was blowing - a strong gust of wind came out of nowhere and blew the flames catching him on fire to perish while the ground around the stones remained untouched as if protected by an invisible force.
The Devil's Tree
This is an ominous large oak tree located in New Jersey and it is said to be cursed - otherwise known as the devil's tree. If you go to this tree and hold contempt, ignorance or disrespect of any kind, you are doomed. Don't even think about trying to chop this monster down as it will be your cursed demise. Many murders and suicides took place by this mysterious tree. The legend of the curse claims that all of the souls of those who perished at the tree cause it to give off an unusual warmth - so much that even snow will melt around its perimeter. It appears by examining the bark and trunk of this tree, that several attempts to fell this tree have been made yet it still stands. This tree is supposed to be a portal to hell and supposedly a sentinel is guarding it by monitoring activity in his black pick-up ghost truck. People have claimed this ghost truck will chase you until you are far enough away and then the truck just disappears.
