Cursed Items/Possessions are some of the most mysterious and interesting things added to Phasmophobia. They are certainly very dangerous to interact with because of how closely associated they are to starting a hunt. While me and my friends would get excited every time we found a cursed possession on the map, we had to argue on who was going to be our Guinea pig to use it.
That being said, one of the biggest challenges is finding a Cursed Item in the first place. The spawn points for certain Cursed Items can seem random at times. However depending on what Phasmophobia gives you on a certain map, you can learn that there are a few reliable spots you can find Cursed Items on.
In our Phasmophobia Cursed Items Locations guide, we’ll show you where to find each location of every Cursed Item.

We have to thank Redditor Fantisamal for their Reddit post detailing the possible spawn locations of each Cursed Item in Phasmophobia. Still it may be possible that the locations given on said images isn’t guaranteed as the game can often be tricky and unpredictable.
For now, these are the locations of where you can find the Cursed Items. A future update may change where they spawn. We even managed to confirm the locations on the bottom by playing the game ourselves.
Phasmophobia Cursed Possessions
Unlike its previous incantations, the Ouija Board has been updated to do things differently. Not only does it have a new appearance, but it also has some new features you need to be aware of.
For one thing, the type of question is what determines the sanity reduction. Players no longer have fixed rate based on whether the Ouija Board responds or not. Demons still have the weakness of costing less sanity but it is much less noticeable now.
Haunted Mirror can easily blend into the surroundings. This is what makes it somewhat hard to spot at certain times for those unfamiliar with what it looks like. What it does, is that it allows you to see into the eyes of the ghost which reveals its location.
Don’t stay on the Haunted Mirror for too long. It will break upon gazing upon it when your sanity goes down to zero. And once it break, the ghost will initiate a Cursed Hunt. Looking into the mirror for too long drastically lowers your sanity as well.
The mirror will shatter once the player’s sanity reaches 0% and it can easily do this as it drains 7.5% sanity per second. Use it to identify the ghost location.
The Voodoo Doll can do a few things. It is quite unpredictable and can be similar to rolling the dice. You’ll notice that it has several pins on it that you can interact with. The pins will move on random. The Voodoo Doll has 10 pins, each of which will cost either 10% or 8% Sanity if you’re facing a Demon.
The Music Box can be easy to miss due to its small nature. Like its name suggest, it is a music box that causes the ghost to interact. The music box can only be used once so using it should be done in great care.
The Music Box is one of the more dangerous Cursed Possession. It will cause the ghost to sing along with it, revealing its location. You need to learn exactly how to use it.
Within 5 meters from the Ghost itself, letting the Music Box play will cause the ghost to start walking towards it. If the ghost touches the music box, it will initiate a Cursed Hunt. If the player drops the music box while its playing, it will also start a Cursed Hunt. The safest way to use the music box is to set it below before playing it.
The Music Box has one of biggest effects on Sanity out of any Cursed Items. It will decrease sanity by 73% if you listen to the full song. The further away you are from the Music Box when it starts playing the lower the Sanity decrease. Check our guide on Phasmophobia’s Music Box – Where to Find the and How to Use It.
The Summoning Circle is straightforward in nature. It’s one of the more easier to spot Cursed Possessions. It can be useful for those wanting to take photos of the ghost. Using the Summoning Circle will force the ghost to appear inside the circle but it will eventually break out and hunt you so be sure to do what you need to do and make a break for it.
You’ll need a lighter to use the Summoning Circle. You’re out of luck if you forgot to bring some. Each candle you light will decrease 16% of your Sanity. A whooping 80% can be deducted from you if you light all five. Best to have friends that take turns.
What is interesting about the Summoning Circle is that it will still be useful in the middle of a hunt. If you summon the ghost inside the circle during a hunt, the hunt will extend by 20 seconds.
Tarot Cards function much like the Voodoo Doll. Though its effects are random and can kill you without a moment’s notice. What you pull can either be beneficial or intrusive to your investigation. Check out our complete Phasmophobia Tarot Cards Meanings and Effects guide.

Tarot Cards can be very unpredictable. The Hanged Man can claim your life unfairly so there should be some exercised caution upon use. If you’re desperate enough, the Tarot Cards may just be what saves you.
Phasmophobia What Do Cursed Items Do?
Cursed Items are very dangerous but they can also be very helpful to your investigation. It is heavily recommended to know what individual Cursed Items do before using them. They can lead to your death.
Once you’ve found a Cursed Item, interact with them is usually a guaranteed ghost activity. Usually, because the some like the Tarot Card has a chance of giving you The Fool which does nothing but yank your chain. However using Cursed Items will take a toll on your sanity which will increase the chances of a ghost hunt. So tread lightly. If a hunt begins caused by the Cursed Item, this will trigger a Cursed Hunt which lasts longer than a regular one.
Each Cursed Possession has a 1-in-6 chances of spawning. And there will always be a cursed possession on any map you spawn on. It should also be noted that you need an empty hand to pick up Cursed Items with the exception of the Summoning Circle, which requires a lighter. If your inventory is full, you cannot pick them up.
The Cursed Items cannot be interacted with outside the haunting grounds. So taking it to your van or outside the house won’t do anything. There is an exception with the Voodoo Doll but it may be an unintended glitch.
Taking photos of Cursed Items will give you additional points for your investigation. We suggest capturing it on camera first before use.
