5. Fort Worth Museum Hauntings
In 2015, Kevin Brown snapped a series of photos on his iPad while he was at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in Texas. Brown, who was there with his niece and two nephews didn’t see anything strange about the images at the time they were taken. It wasn’t until later that day that his niece noticed something very unsettling in one of the photos.
The photo appears to show a withered old hag dressed in dirty rags floating above the floor with outstretched hands.
“That is the first time in my life I’ve actually had the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. It freaked me out. It freaked (my niece) out,” Brown said in a newspaper report.
‘I’m positive I would have noticed something like that and it was strange.’ Brown added, It wasn’t noticed until we looked at the pictures.’
The museum has a history of strange occurrences particularly when it played host to a Titanic exhibition. Security guards have reported unusual shadows showing up on cameras and objects mysteriously moving around by themselves.
4. Ghost of Alcatraz
This photo of a young child was allegedly taken at the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary in San Francisco, California. The image shows what appears to be the face of a ghostly apparition floating above the child with a very strange white streak down the centre of the photo. The sign in the background is marked ‘Operating Room’ and there appears to be a table directly behind the child. Could this be the spirit of someone who passed away during surgery in this very room? Or is it some sort of camera glitch? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
3. Ghost of an Unknown Boy
This photo, taken on a mobile phone shows a group of girls posing for a picture in the middle of the lounge room. The young girl seen crying in the bottom right corner of the image refused to take part in the picture because she said ‘The little boy was scaring her!’ It wasn’t until later, when her mother was reviewing the photo that she realised what the little girl was talking about.
Take a look between the legs of the girls second and third from the left. You can clearly see the face of a young boy peering out from behind the group. If it was simply a shadow or optical illusion why did the little girl get so scared? Was she the only one who could see the ghostly boy? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
2. An Eerie Visitor
This photo, taken by the father of the young girl playing in their living room clearly shows some sort of ghostly, human-like figure. It appears to be crawling across the carpet with one hand raised to its mouth. What makes this image extra creepy is the fact that it looks as though the little girl may actually be able to see the apparition. Could this be the spirit of a deceased family member or is it some sort of camera glitch or light trick? What do you think is going on in this photo?
1. The Enfield House Haunting
This photo taken in 1977 is of young girl named Janet Hodgson. You may not know her by name but her family’s real life experiences formed the basis for the supernatural horror film, The Conjuring 2.
Taken while Janet and her family were living in a council house in Enfield, North London, this photo supposedly shows one of the numerous times she was lifted from her bed and thrown across the room by supernatural forces.
The Hodgson family claim to have witnessed many strange things while living at the house including furniture levitating and moving around the room as well as lego bricks and marbles flying through the air. On one occasion, Janet’s mother Peggy called the police after hearing a strange knocking sound coming from the walls and floor. The police officer reported witnessing a chair rise up and move across the floor on its own, in full view of everyone.
A member of the Society for Psychical Research, Maurice Grosse was called to investigate the haunting. During his time at the house, he claimed to have witnessed sofas floating and tipping over as well as tables and chests of drawers spinning on the spot.
One one occasion, Grosse and a neighbour heard Janet’s sister Rose crying out ‘I can’t move! It’s holding my leg!’ They found her at the top of the staircase, standing on one leg with the other outstretched behind her. Both Grosse and the neighbour grabbed Rose by the wrists and pulled as hard as they could but she could not be moved.
The family eventually moved from the house but to this day, Janet refuses to talk about the haunting in front of her own children.
Well that was the 10 creepiest paranormal photos ever taken. Who else needs a pair of fresh trousers? I know I do!
