It's a common trope in zombie fiction, from 28 Days Later to The Walking Dead : The lone survivor wakes up in an abandoned hospital to discover that the world has succumbed to zombification and overwrought interpersonal drama. If you've always wanted to wander through the apocalypse in a buttless gown, you can take yourself a nice nap in Forest Park Hospital in St. Louis, which was abandoned in 2011. According to Nick Zulauf, who's explored and photographed the interior, "It's a little creepy because there are still things on. Things are buzzing, things are beeping. The water still runs."
"The blood still drips from the ceiling, but only on Thursdays."
And sure, that's unnerving and all, but if creepy hospitals are your thing, what you really want to do is find one that's been steeping a bit longer. Quick, let's play a round of "Abandoned Croatian Examination Room or Serial Killer Lair?"

To get to the really good stuff, however, what you've got to do is find yourself a hospital with some combination of the words "lunatic" and "asylum" in its name, like the New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum:
AKA, the most festive place on earth for shambling nightmares from beyond the veil of sanity.
