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 :)

The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King’s ‘The Shining’. Here, ghostly guests are said to hold parties in the ballroom and even steal people’s luggage.

LUNA - A Short Horror Film

Wow, This is a must see. Most short horror films don’t have enough time to set up a good plot, But the twist at the end is a mind fuck.

Over 200 Dead Bodies On Mount Everest

The area above 26,000ft is called “The Death Zone” due to the atmospheric pressure. The air is so thin that recovering the dead bodies is impossible so they are left where they died.

There have been many cases where people had to leave behind some people that were still alive due to low oxygen. Sergei and Francys Arsentiev met that fate. Two climbers heard Francys screaming for help on the side of a steep cliff. She was seperated from her husband. The climbers had to leave her behind or they would have died themselves.

Some were lucky enough to die in their sleep, while others suffered injuries from falls and died slowly from hypothermia.

In 1962, a small fire in a city of Pennsylvania called Centralia caught up with an exposed vein of anthracite coal located underground. The flames on the surface were extinguished, but the coal under the town continued to burn for many years, and in 1984 the fire forced people who lived there to evacuate the city. Currently, this town is an abandoned and deserted place, and the fire which is still burning beneath the town, has enough coal to feed it for other 250 years more.

Somebody wrote to Manson and got this reply in the mail—not from Manson…

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 creepy X-ray image taken of a statue of Jesus in Mexico has revealed that the 300-year-old figure contains real human teeth - and they are all in perfect condition. The eight teeth were discovered when researchers took the X-ray as part of restoration work on the ‘Lord of Patience’ statue, believed to have been constructed in the 18th century. The teeth, which are perfectly formed all the way to the root, are believed to have been donated by worshipers out of gratitude, or as a way to get closer to the religious figure.

Room 322 in Hotel Zaza is a very strange room.

For one, it is not listed as a room in the Hotel’s website. It is also a third of the size as the other rooms. There is no carpet, the bed is held up with chains. This is also the only room with a brick wall as well. The mirror on that brick wall leads to the idea that it might be a two-way mirror.

322 is also the number for Skull and Bones Secret Society which explains the numerous skull pictures and stuff. There are other creepy pictures in the room as well, like the two girls in the pink dresses and dead eyes. Also, a picture of Jay Comeaux, who is the Pres. of Stanford Group Company.

Why does this room exist? What purpose does it serve?
