Your house was built on a cemetary - would you be worried?

I was watching the 1980s horror film Poltergeist and the house in which the family that were terrorised by evil spirits was built on a burial ground.

If you found out that your beloved domicile was built over dead bodies, would it concern you? There apparently are stories of houses that were built over burial grounds that are haunted by ghosts/poltergeists and such.

Would it bother you? Would it worry you that a horde of rotting, skeletal corpses could smash up through your floor to take their vengeance out on you, your spouse, your 2.1 children and the family dog. What if the family gimp became possessed by evil spirits - would it put a dampner on your kinky sex sessions?

Does it keep you awake at night?

Parents house was built on something similar, I think it was to do with people who died in the workhouse! There was also a few nuns hanged on a tree up from the parents house.

In answer to your question... It scares the fnck out of me when I think about it but I grew up knowing so it has sunk in. Also I don't live with the parents anymore so that could be it too

An estimated 1.5 million people have been buried at Glasnevin cemetery.
I haven't heard of any problems.

There's a saying in another language that I know which translates into:
"Be afraid of the alive, and not the dead"

Good if you have a dog. Set it digging in the back and you wouldn't have to feed it.

No, it wouldn't bother me, because I don't think zombie movies are actually documentaries

They have these already all over Ireland. They are called Ghost Estates and it stems from the Celtic Tiger when land prices rose so high that people had to build anywhere they could get it, including some graveyards..

(Or such is my understanding)
