This is something I've always wondered. I'm British and have travelled a fair bit. Everytime I've been to the states I feel this really intense spooky vibe. It's hard to explain but when I was little I would often find the same thing with watching American rather than British films. When I visited the LA when I was a child I literally could not sleep I would be so frightened and I never had that anywhere else. It's hard for me to explain, it feels like all the colours are brighter, and things are just closer to 'another realm' than anywhere else. Does anyone else feel this way and have any thoughts as to why this might be? I've also noticed that Americans often have paranormal experiences whereas its quite rare for Brits. And UFO sightings/abductions seem much more common.
