There's a surprising phobia that many humans have but don't always realise it. It's called hylophobia. imgur.com Otherwise known as a fear of woods or forests. imgur.com Think you don't have it? You do, because you surely wouldn't want to go inside this creepy forest cabin. imgur.com And if you found this on a hike, would you run? imgur.com I know I would. Not that you'd get far if you did, of course. Imgur.com Forests have a way of twisting your sense of direction. With fatal results. In a forest, you just never know what horrors could be lurking close by, behind the trees, just out of sight. imgur.com Imagine walking around a corner and seeing this. imgur.com It just doesn't bear thinking about. Would you knock on this door? Surely not. Imgur.com This is definitely the Blair Witch's house. It's far too easy to get lost in the woods. Imgur.com And you always end up in the worst possible place if you do. You never know who might be following you. Imgur.com If you look closely at this photo, you might spot something...otherworldly. See? imgur.com "My friend's dad took this photo on a hiking trip. He did not see this woman in person." Does this pitch-dark path look remotely appealing? imgur.com No, it doesn't. Because this is probably at the end of it. imgur.com Nope x 1000. There's a reason bodies are often found in the woods. Imgur.com It's the perfect place to hide, and lie in wait...
