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 :)

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?

Vampiric Ghost Woman Photographed in Indonesia?

A man only known an Dimas claims he has photographed a ghost behind his friend. On an unspecified date, Dimas was out with a friend at the Citarik river in Indonesia. He took a picture of his friend standing in front of the river. Afterwards, the two looked at the photo and were shocked to see that a mysterious figure in a white gown with long, black hair could be seen climbing on the rocks behind Dimas’ friend. Dimas says that there wasn’t anyone behind his friend when the picture was taken. He believes the figure is the vampiric ghost known as the Pontianak. According to Malay and Indonesian mythology, the Pontianak is said to be the ghost of a woman who died while pregnant.

This photo doesn’t look like it was Photoshopped. This figure looks like it was actually there when the photo was taken. If the photo is real, then this could be the ghost of someone who died in or near the river. However, it’s possible that this is a hoax. The ghost could’ve been a person, possibly one of their friends, dressed in a costume. Even though they said that nobody was behind them, there’s no way to confirm if that’s the truth or not. Personally, I’m a bit skeptical of this photo only because the ghost looks a bit too much like a person, but that’s just my opinion. I’d like to know what you think about this photo. Do you think it shows a real ghost? Or do you think it’s a hoax?

Ghostly Figure Photographed in an Abandoned Mental Hospital?

This photo was supposedly taken back in 1998 at the Craig Dunain Mental Hospital located in Inverness, Scotland. The photo shows a ghostly figure dressed in white standing in the corner of a room by a window. Some believe the figure is the ghost of a patient in a straitjacket or a hospital gown. Others think that this could be the spirit of a nurse who worked at the hospital.

Given that this photo was taken in an abandoned mental hospital that was built back in 1864 (and eventually closed around 1999), it’s definitely possible that this is a spirit of either a patient or even a staff member. The spirits of many people could’ve become attached to this place. I think the spirit looks like a patient in a regular hospital gown. The arms do look like they’re crossed, but they don’t appear to be bound by a straitjacket. Although, it’s hard to tell for sure since the figure is very faint.
Some believe that the figure isn’t actually a ghost, they believe this is pareidolia. In photos of the hospital’s interior, such as this one and this one, we can see that there are small white lamps (I’m not quite sure if they’re actually lamps, but that’s what they appear to be) mounted along the walls. In the ghost photo, the figure’s shoulders appear to be shaped similarly to the wall mounted lamps seen in the other photos. Those who think this is pareidolia theorize that the figure is a combination of the wall mounted lamps and the light that’s coming in through the window, which is causing a trick of the light. While it’s possible that this is pareidolia, it’s ultimately still a mystery as to what this figure really is. What do you think? Does this photo show a real ghost, or is this a case of pareidolia?

"A Texas family has fled their home after finding some.. unnerving things in their daily family videos. The videos were being uploaded to YouTube and subscribers were pointing out a being or creature in almost every single family video. These are just two screenshots of the creepiest sightings, out of the many videos. The family has been blurred to protect their privacy."
