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 :)

Formerly the most populated island the Chesapeake Bay, Holland Island is now abandoned and rapidly eroding away. Before that though, the island was home to about 360 residents.  Suddenly in 1914 the wind and tide began to erode the western side of the island. Most of the population lived on that side, and were forced to leave. Pictured above is the last remaining house from Holland Island. It collapsed in 2010.

Berlinde De Bruyckere.:Suffering and Protection
Flemish sculptor creates sculptures and drawings of suffering human bodies that resemble nothing so much as reality. It mixes in his sculptures on religious grounds and media images and writes the Christian motif of the human suffering in the contemporary era. The confrontation with the body that engages the artist led to questions about the ethics of our society and are the place to fundamental questions about the nature of the human being.
These disturbing and uncannily lifelike sculptures by Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere are incredibly visceral and eerie. The repulsion instinctively triggered in the viewer comes from their verisimilitude, and the sense of reality of this nameless, grotesque, distorted, half-human, seemingly fluid flesh; combined with their beauty, the delicate, subtle mottling of colors, the pure realistic visceral fleshiness of the works, and their technical grace.

In Atlanta, Georgia, 1987, seventy-seven year old Minnie Winston found what appeared to be blood splattered on her bathroom floor and fetched her seventy-nine year old husband, William. Further searching by the couple revealed more spots of red, blood-like fluid on the bathroom’s lower walls, the kitchen, living room, bedroom, hallways, and basement. Blood was also found in a crawlspace and under a television set. The blood was human type O - the owners had type A. No explanation was ever found.

Do you have the YouTube channel for this videos of the family and the creature??

Afraid not, sorry :( I’m not sure if there even is a YouTube channel or if it’s just a creepy story. Maybe the original poster would have more info?
