The Kali Krew Presents: 22 Road Trips You Don’t Want to Go On

Road trip! Well, not really, please stay at home if you can. But we can always dream, plan…and avoid taking the trips that these people went on. Scary byways, trips to the middle of nowhere with nothing but death waiting at the end. You might also want to watch out for cultish , evil entities, and sinister resorts on your horror road trips.

So be wary of that roadside attraction that looks oh so tempting but the actors might just be a little too real and be alert when you’re broken down on that stretch of highway that’s rumoured to be haunted.

Below is the Kali Krew’s list of haunted highways, travelling vampires and pioneer zombies. There just might be a quick detour through Mars and time travel.

  1. How could you forget “Deliverance” (1972)?
    Easy, I know, there’s so much to choose from.
    So here are three classic stories to add to the list.
    :The Upper Berth” (1886) by F. Marion Crawford. Be thankful you don’t have to sail across the Atlantic.
    “The Willows” (1907) by Algernon Blackwood. The Blue Danube has never been so sinister.
    “Don’t Look Now” (1971) by Daphne du Maurier. A trip to Venice takes a sinister turn. Made into a well-regarded 1973 movie you should not see with your parents, due to the lengthy scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie. You’ll know which one I’m talking about.

    • *smacks forehead* I can’t believe I forgot about Deliverance. I think it’s probably arguably the parent of ‘hillbilly horror’.

      The Upper Berth is such a good story! It sounds so gross and…squishy.

      I have not read The Willows, yet, though.

      Don’t Look Now sounds interesting! I have heard the title before but never watched or read it.
