Spooky photos, unsettling art, ghost stories, urban legends and more. . . turn out the lights, lock all the doors, and enjoy!

I prefer to post subtly unnerving and unsettling things rather than horror and gore. I love weird old photos and things that cannot be explained. I avoid posting about real-life murders/torture/abuse etc, we all know it happens and it is terrible, but I would rather keep this blog fairly light hearted.

I try to credit artists/photographers when possible, but I often don't know the source. Feel free to message me if you know the story behind anything I have posted :)

No Through Road

On December 17th 2008 four 17 year old boys were found dead in their car at an abandoned farm, 10 miles from their hometown. 
This video contains the unedited footage from the camera belonging to one of the boys, also found in the car.

I think this is a short-film based on the Clifton Bunny Man Urban Legend.
I personally think this is really well done. Give it a watch!

The Ziriya Board is a “talking” board.
You ask it questions, much like you would do with a Ouija board. You can print it out and use an “indicator” or just go to the website I linked above and use their interactive one. Unlike a ouija board there are whole words on here along with symbols and the normal letters and numbers.
People have some really interesting stories to share about the “answers” they have gotten.

These hauntingly beautiful photographs are taken by Nicolas Bruno.

Nicolas turns his nightmares into art. Nicolas has been suffering from sleep paralysis since he was 15, a condition that causes him to wake up in the middle of the night unable to move. He has turned his suffering into art and actually uses his photographs as a way of dealing with the sleep paralysis. 

You can see more of his AWESOME work here. [x]

This painting known as “The Anguished Man” was kept in Sean Robinson’s grandmother’s attic for 20+ years before Sean Robinson inherited this painting from her. She warned him about the painting, and said it was “haunted.” She told him that the man who painted this, mixed his own blood with the paint and after he was finished, killed himself (why would you keep this).
After Robinson took this home with him, he started experiencing some strange things as well. His wife felt her hair being stroked from time to time, they would see this shadow figure walking around the house and crying, and Robinson was even pushed down the stairs by something. There is also a video you can watch.
Whether this is true or fake, this has to be one of the creepiest paintings I have ever seen.

Savannah’s famously haunted home at 432 Abercorn Street Since I get a lot of asks requesting ghost pictures. Here is one that I like since I’ve been here before. Call it an extreme case of pareidolia or fake, but the story goes that a girl died in the house after her father tied her to a chair and left her to die of heat exhaustion.

A wedding photographer took this picture from a rooftop to get a bird’s eye view of a wedding in progress. Something seemed odd about the balcony in the top right portion of the photograph.

The first pic is a zoomed in version of the original picture which is picture 2.

Staged or not, hella creepy

Over the past few years, rumors have circulated in Japan about the existence of gigantic humanoid life-forms inhabiting the icy waters of the Antarctic.
For the most part, the existence of the Ningen is considered an urban legend. Much of the information about this rumored creature can be traced back to a series of posts on the 2channel forums, written by a person describing the experience of a friend employed on a government “whale research” vessel. 

Reportedly observed on multiple occasions by crew members of government-operated “whale research” ships, these so-called “Ningen” (lit. “humans”) are said to be completely white in color with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters. Eyewitnesses describe them as having a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five-fingered hands. Sometimes they are described as having fins or a large mermaid-like tail instead of legs. The only visible facial features are the eyes and mouth.
