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 :)

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.

The Island of Dolls

After being abandoned for over 50 years, The Island of Dolls has become one of Mexico’s top tourist attractions. According to the island’s history, a man named Don Julian Santana left his kids and wife to live on the island in solitude. As the story goes, the body of a young girl washed up onto the island and Don Julian believed that he was being haunted by the spirit of the girl. 

He began collecting dolls and hanging them on trees throughout the island as a way to prevent the girl’s spirit from haunting him and the island. He continued to fill the trees with dolls until he died.

Angela Strassheim - Evidence

Evidence is a group of photographs taken at homes where familial homicides have occurred. Long after the struggles have ended in these spaces, despite the cleaning, repainting and subsequent re-habitation of these homes, the “Blue Star” solution activates the physical memory of blood through its contact with the remaining DNA proteins on the walls. The black and white images are long exposures – from ten minutes to one hour – with minimal ambient night light pouring in from the crevices of windows and doors, capturing the physical presence of blood as a lurid glow.
