* [[AwesomeButImpractical Harrenhal]] has this reputation in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', partially because the Targaryens used dragons to roast the castle's holders alive centuries ago, and partially because most of the people who hold the castle end up [[TheMillstone experiencing acute misfortune]] ([[spoiler:Janos Slynt got sent up to join the Night's Watch, Amory Lorch got thrown in the bear pit when the castle was taken, Vargo Hoat had his limbs chopped off and ''fed to him'' by Gregor Clegane, and so on: and, these are just the newest]]). There are tales of the ghost of Harren the Black and his sons roaming the castle, looking like charred corpses. Not to mention whatever House Lothston as a whole managed to do while living in it to ''still'' get used as scary stories to get children across the Riverlands into staying indoors when it starts to get dark for fear of what could come out of the castle. They've been extinct for decades by the start of the series, but it left a mark.

* Played with in the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', where the ancestral {{Uberwald}}ean home of the Magpyrs is actually called Dontgonearthe Castle, and the Old Count would advertise it as if it were a tourist trap using ReversePsychology ("Last Chance to Not Go Near The Castle").
** And it worked. People would come in for MILES just so they could Notgonearthe castle. And when, every few decades, the vampire there rose again [[spoiler: ([[GenreSavvy and was quickly quelled, of course]])]], it just added to the interest... and the local economy. It helps even more that there's something with the roads that causes all traveling coaches to break a wheel as they near it.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Hogwarts Castle is a unique form of this trope: the castle is indeed haunted by several ghosts, but most are perfectly nice (well, except Peeves, but he's a pest rather than an actual threat, and not even really a ghost; he's a poltergeist; the Bloody Baron is pretty terrifying, though, but harmless), and the castle is, of course, also a [[WizardingSchool school]]. Most of the ghosts just hang around and give advice when asked, but one of them is actually teaching classes, and no-one's sure if he's even noticed he died.

** The ''Histories and Lore'' bonus material explains that Harrenhal has always had a sinister repute and that every family to hold it has met with misfortune. This holds mostly true even in the present day: Janos Slynt was banished and later executed, Locke had his neck broken by a Bran-controlled Hodor, Gregor Clegane was gravely wounded (it is unclear if the show's version was brought back from the dead as Ser Robert Strong apparently was or merely returned from the brink), Robb Stark, Tywin Lannister, and Roose Bolton were murdered, Only Littlefinger remains unscathed.

** The Riverlands are home to Harrenhal, a castle built by the Ironborn during their occupation of the region. Though now a ruin, it remains the largest castle built in Westeros, but the day it was completed, the Targaryens invaded and roasted the Ironborn royal family inside. The ''Histories and Lore'' bonus material explains that Harrenhal has always had a sinister repute and that since then every family to hold it has met with misfortune. This holds mostly true even in the present day: Janos Slynt was banished and later executed, Locke had his neck broken by a Bran-controlled Hodor, Gregor Clegane was gravely wounded (it is unclear if the show's version was brought back from the dead as Ser Robert Strong apparently was or merely returned from the brink), Robb Stark, Tywin Lannister, and Roose Bolton were murdered, murdered.
