Silmaril The scariest/creepiest etc. ME location?

There is an interesting thread about scary LoTR characters but what about the places?
What would be the place you last and the least would wanna end up in? Or is there such a place?
I'd gladly keep some distance from the Mirkwood with its spiders [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] and the Paths of the Dead don't sound that inviting either.

I would be dead scared to go to Shelob's Lair and the Mines of Moria. I don't know, I guess I just don't do too well in dark, closed in spaces where dangerous beasts lurk. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hobbiton, avarrogion? Hmmm...doesn't sound very scary to me, but ya know, whatever floats your boat.

I would definitly stay away from Moria, anywhere in Mordor, and for some reason I don't have a very keen liking to Gondor. I don't know why, it's just a thing with me. I used to not like the Barrow Downs, but hey, I've been here for almost 8 months and havn't found nothing scary about it.

A foggy night in the Barrow Downs, that would be creepiest [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Paths of the Dead for 2nd place

And tied for 3rd is Mirkwood at night and the Dead Marshes.

I think the creepiest place is Shelob's lair. I do suffer from arachniphobia and seeing those eyes behind me would not be pleasant experience. And think of the smell and filth of that tunnel. *shudders*

Hm..Hobbiton? Okay...
Well, this isnt scary, but heart-wrenchingly sad: i wouldnt like to go to Lorien after the Elves left...it would be too much
Scary? Moria/Khazad-dum/DARK PLACES!
I think that the scariest plcae would be Gorgoroth. That big plain, with nothing in sight..*runs away screaming*

I am all the way with you on that one alaklondewen! I HATE spiders. Even the smallest ones creep me out so much. If I even caught a glance of Shelob I would probably faint. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Moria, the <dun dun dun!>Paths of the Dead, and the Dead Marshes. I wouldn't much mind any of the other so-called creepy places in M-e, like Shelob's Lair (spider spider! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] ), or the Barrow Downs, or Mordor. I'm just odd, I guess....

Yeah, I also orginally did not like the Barrow-Downs, but actually it is not that bad of a place, it's great. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
Shelob's lair would probably be the scariest place of all, and the Dead Marshes (in the book)
Oh, and this place is in the Silmarillion, but Angband, the great dungeon-fortress of Morgoth, not a place you would want to stay the night.
Oh and of course anyplace ruled by Sauron or Morgoth

I feel kind of strange...

The places I want to go to (Shelob's lair, Mordor, etc.) are the places that everyone's afraid of!! And the place I'm afraid of (Tom Bombadil's place) is the place everyone wants to go to!!!!

I'M SO CONFUSED!!!!

Oh I totally forgot about Shelob's Lair in the first post!! * [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] * Now I would rather gladly travel to Mirkwood if I was to choose between those two options.
And the Dead Marshes...well, need not say more!

Probably, for me, the Dead Marshes or the the Balck Gates. The Dead Marshes is a dead giveaway (absolutely no pun intended) The Morannon- well. Just being there and knowing how much evil and hate was contained beyond those gates *shudders*. And now with happy (haha) thoughts, I will send myself off to bed! (It's only 12 in Alaska)

hmm.... odd, you people have put mordor alomst last on your lists i would think a stoll through mirkwood a breeze in comparison, but the most terrifying of all would have to be angband *now that deserves a <dun dun dun>* i would love to go to the BD that would be so fun, now that i am dead.

I think Mirkwood would be no problem. It'd be Bombadil's house for me too, that seems so creepy! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] But the Downs'd be great!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I think that the part of Mirkwood Bilbo went throgh would be the creepiest for me because anything that crawls creeps me out so bad! Also because it is dark and stuffy and I am afraid of the dark. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Minas Ithil for me. Can't you just see the eerie glow from the tower? That part gave me the frissons worse than any other part in the entire book...
