Ghosts are real. Theres no point saying otherwise. Maybe back in the day, before cameras were invented, it was harder to believe. But in the past century or two, the evidence just keeps piling up. Almost every year, a new photo is uncovered giving us solid proof of the unsolid world. Sure, some of them might be fakes. But if just one out of 100 spirit snaps is real, then thats still far too much to ignore. Still on the fence? These creepy photos might just push you over the edge.
1. The Young Girl of Wern Town Hall
Captured during a blaze that consumed the town hall in England, this unearthly visitor doesnt seem to care at all that shes surround by roaring flames. The photographer (and onlookers) swear that there was no-one there at the time. Nothing conclusive was found to identify the girl, and the world just got a little bit weirder.
2. The Coventry Specter
Its hard to identify exactly which person in this photo is the ghost, since they all look old and a stuffy. But well help you out its the thing with a hooded robe, standing at the upper left of the table. The rest are just politicians. We dont know which to fear more.
3. Amityville's John Defeo
If the movies didnt scare you enough, heres some more proof that the Amityville house really was as haunted as they claimed. This striking and very detailed photograph shows what looks like John Defeo, a 9-year-old murder victim, staring straight at the lens. And is it just us, or is that also Simbas father in the picture on the right? Now thats downright freaky.
4. The Romanian Priestess
We all love a secret treasure trove story, especially when theres supposedly a phantom lady protecting it. This one, however, has a bit more solid (well, non-corporeal) evidence, with a photo of the lady in question. The treasure and ghostly priestess are said to be in a hotel in Eastern Romania, but so far it looks like shes done her job well.
5. The Waverly Hills Nurse
You wouldnt need much luck to capture a ghost in a sanitorium, just patience. Especially in Waverly Hills, reputedly one of the most haunted hospitals in the States (which is quite the acheivement). But no matter which way you rationalize it, this photo of a nurse who had committed suicide decades prior is still extremely creepy.
6. The Backseat Passenger
Mrs. Chinnery got more of her mother than she bargained for when she went to visit her grave in 1959. A photo she took of her husband waiting in the car, when developed, revealed that her mother wasnt really where she should be six feet under instead of in the back seat. The thing about ghost cars is that you can fit plenty of them in there.
7. A Queensland Child
You dont get many ghosts in Australia its just too damn sunny all the time. So it was kind of a surprise when this mystery child showed up in a photograph of a babys grave, and became even more unsettling when experts ruled out any photographic errors or tampering. Whoever it is, at least they look happy.
8. A Boy In White
Its one thing to snap a photo of a supposed ghost, and another thing to have a bunch of other people back up your claims. Thats what happened with this photo, taken as part of a photography project at a farm in Southern England. Although initially shocked, farm hands later said that they too had seen the boy in white, several times. It would be almost better, nightmare-wise, if they denied the whole thing.
9. Robert A. Ferguson's Brother
Spiritualism tends to attract all manner of weirdos, but only very rarely do they find what their name suggests real spirits. This photographer managed to snag one, though, at a spiritualist convention in 1968 where Robert A. Ferguson was speaking. He later claimed the ghostly man as his long-dead brother. But he would say that.
10. The Filipino Grabber
Apologies for the somewhat sensational title, but thats literally what this phantom is a man, in the Philippines, grabbing the arm of a girl. Of course, these girls had no idea that the ghost was there until they looked at the cellphone photo, but it must have added an eerie note to their night out.
11. Lord Combermere
Taken in 1891, the specter haunting the chair in this photo is supposedly Lord Combermere, a local noble from Cheshire in England. His funeral, which was being held four miles away, was in progress at the exact time as the photo was taken. He doesnt look happy about the proceedings, thats for sure.
12. The Wolfe Pub Spirit
We could make plenty of terrible jokes about spirits belonging in pubs, but in this case its no laughing matter. The image above is just one still from a full 35 second CCTV reel, in which a ball of light appears, floats around, and forms into a terrifying ghostly face. Experts have scoured the footage for evidence of a hoax, but its either legit or George Lucass special effects teams have wasted millions of dollars on a prank.
13. The Woman At Corroboree Rock
An oasis in the heart of the Australian outback, Alice Springs is also at the center of a number of important aboriginal spiritual sites. So it wouldnt be too much of a shock to find ghostly footage nearby, except in this case its the ghost of a white woman. No explanation was ever offered for the famous 1959 photo, and we doubt that theyll ever find one.
14. Denise Russel's Grandfather
What seems like a clear case of pensioner photobombing is actually a little bit freakier than that. First off, the man in the background (the husband of the woman in the photo) had died 12 years later. Even more mysteriously, this photo was taken in 1997, more than a decade before photobombing was even invented. An elderly person ahead of the times? We dont think so.
15. A Mysterious Pilot
Another British haunting, this time in a retired army helicopter, on display in Somerset. The person in the photo is one Mrs. Sayer, who claims that she was alone at the time the photo was taken, and that the ghostly figure only cam out when the film was developed. In case you were wondering, thats the ghost on the left.
16. The Scotland Tea Lady
Poor ghosts. Most of them died well before the era of constant surveillance, and have no idea theyre being watched when all they want is some down time. Or tea, like this woman who was captured on CCTV in a teahouse in Perth, Scotland. Talk about invasion of privacy.
17. The Ghost Of The Oak Grove Bridge
Several stories have appeared to explain this spooky photo, which was taken one night in Oak Grove, Kentucky. Locals claim that a woman was murdered on that very bridge in the 60s, and that her body still walks back and forth endlessly. It certainly has the whiff of ridiculous urban legend about it, but who are we to judge? Were not going to go anywhere near that bridge.
18. The Brown Lady of Raynam Hall
We could argue for hours over why this apparition would be dubbed The Brown Lady from a black and white photograph, but the truth is all that matters. This photo, taken in 1936 in Norfolk, England, would seem to hold up to any examination, and the figure is clearly a human form. The only thing our generation would really want to know is: what color is the dress?
19. The Bachelor's Grove Thinker
One of creepiest places in the US, the abandoned Bachelors Grove cemetery brings amateur paranormalists in from across the country. One of them snapped this picture in the graveyard, which like many of the other photos had no-one in frame until it was developed. The photo is just one of hundreds of reports that have come from the site. This woman looks tired of them, to be honest.
20. Boothill Cemetery Cowboy
Nothing in this photo seems real, from the way that Terry Clantons cowboy friend stands superimposed over the backdrop, to the complete lack of graves at what is supposedly a cemetery, to the crouching figure whos not meant to be there. But its 100% legit, apparently, and no-one has any idea who the man is. Looks like he was just caught trying to relieve himself.
21. The Hampton Court Doorman
The royal palace in London has been said to be riddled with ghosts, but this was the first definitive proof that something was amiss. Even more strangely, he was captured on CCTV footage, immediately ruling out our quirky human brains or tampering. With that many ghosts in the building, he was no doubt trying to air the place out.
22. Helpful Children
Its not so much the photo (which just looks like bad watermark) as the backstory that makes this one chilling. Since a horrific accident in the 40s claimed the lives of several children at this rail crossing in San Antonio, motorists who stop on the tracks claimed to have had their car pushed by unseen forces. Now why cant more ghosts be helpful instead of terrifying?
23. The Newby Church Monk
What do you do when youre a 16th century monk thats been dead for 400 years? Just chill, apparently. The guy in this photo looks quite at ease with his surroundings almost as if hes posing. And before you ask, the photo was taken in 1963, well before the movie Scream had come out. So it cant have been an awesome prank.
24. The Tulip Staircase Apparition
We dont exactly know whats going on in this photo. Is that two ghosts? Or one with three hands? Why do they look like theyre being sucked out of a plane? Who keeps taking photos of staircases? How do those steps even work? This image is going to haunt our dreams for weeks.
25. The White Lady
The vicar of Worstead church in England already knew of the white lady, who had been haunting his church for centuries. Supposedly a healer, she wasnt ever captured on film until this surprising phot was taken in 1975. Skeptics might say its just a bright patch on sunlight falling on a real life person, but the photographer claims that there was no-one there. We want to believe.
