Deep in rural New Jersey, there is a road that winds dangerously through the forest and eventually leads to place known as “Midgetville”. This road is said to be haunted, and has caused many disturbances and violent unrest in the formerly quiet town. There is no limit to the possible explanations and stories created by locals surrounding Annie’s Road…
As a result, nobody is really sure exactly what happened to poor Annie. Some say she was killed on her wedding night, her body being dragged along the guardrail. Others claim she had gotten into a fight with her boyfriend right before prom, and decided to drunkenly walk along the road throughout the rest of the night. She was then killed by either a speeding car full of wasted classmates, or a group of rowdy sailors. More popular tales state that Annie was completely decapitated in a car wreck while riding home, or that she was mowed over by a truck driver while waiting for her date.
No matter what actually happened, her death still resulted in a large bloodstain on the road, and a similar splatter on the guardrail. However, the guardrail is actually painted red in memory of Annie. Creepier still, her deranged father is the one who comes to repaint it every year, on the anniversary of her death. In addition, the graveyard where she is supposedly buried is said to glow during the night. Many late-night adventurers have reported seeing a flickering light moving among the graves, as well as a rather short, white-clad figure posing as a hitchhiker during the night. The chances of seeing Annie are greater if the driver plays oldies music and keeps their headlights off…but people say that anyone who agrees to give her a ride loses control of their car. And while there is no proof of this, many accidents have occurred along Annie’s road in the night, with the wreck remains suggesting that the victims had been chased.
Another peculiar, if not paranormal, thing are the dwarves and midgets supposedly inhabiting this area. All of the houses are indeed smaller than average, but this is because the town was formerly used just for vacation homes. Ever since an article about Annie’s death appeared on the internet, numbers of curious, noisy teenagers have disrupted “Midgetville” searching for a glimpse of the little people. Some claim to have seen a dwarf chopping wood, a few visitors have been shot at, and one even received a resident’s phone number. Eventually, things got out of control, and the police put up a sign forbidding any unwelcome noise or disturbances.
Unfortunately, Annie is not the only teenager ever to have been killed in this area. About nine years ago, a group of six high school boys became obsessed with the story of the murdered young woman. They drove along the road constantly, and spent their nights snooping around the graveyard. Eventually, five of the boys decided they were tired of hanging out with the sixth. They tried (and failed) multiple times to burn his car, but he wouldn’t leave. So, using some sort of crazed logic, the five boys decided the only solution was to kill him. None of their attempts worked, until they all drove back to the school parking lot. The sixth boy was then strangled to death by an electrical cord as the rest of the gang recited the Catholic “Hail Mary” over and over again.
