There is very little information available about when or where this picture was actually taken. It shows a group of high school students posing for a group photo and at first there doesn’t seem to be anything out of the ordinary. That is until you notice the dark, ominous figure standing at the rear. The figure is tall and ghostly and appears to be wearing a hooded robe. It looks very similar to the grim reaper.

Who or what could the mysterious figure seen in this photo actually be? Is it just a taller than average student playing a prank on their fellow classmates or could it be something more sinister? Let us know what think it is in the comments section below.

9. The El Paso High School Ghost

This is a photo of the 1985/86 graduating class from the El Paso High School in Texas. If you look at the bottom left corner of the image there is a ghostly figure standing in the second row. The figure is pale with no distinguishable facial features and appears to be wearing a long white dress.

The creepiest part about the photo is that no one who was there that day can recognize the figure nor do they remember anyone actually standing there when the picture was taken. It is also said that the mysterious figure doesn’t appear on the negative.

Some believe it could be the ghost of a cheerleader who reportedly committed suicide, throwing herself from the 4th floor of the school after being dumped by her boyfriend. Over the years, many students have claimed to see a young girl jump from the same floor but when they run to help her, there is no one on the ground.

Has the photographer actually captured the ghost of the deceased cheerleader? Or could it simply be some sort of camera malfunction?

8. Deceased Student Haunts Classmates

Kuntilanak appears in school photo - 10 Real Ghosts That Have Appeared in School Photos


This photo is believed to have been taken at a school somewhere in Malaysia. It reportedly shows the ghost of a young girl who returned to haunt her fellow classmates.

While this photo could have easily been staged, it’s the original message that accompanied the picture that will send shivers down your spine.

It was said that the girl returned in the form of a kuntilanak – a vampiric ghost of Malaysian folklore that attacks its victims and then devours their body organs.

Kuntilanaks usually appear on a full moon and can be heard making a crying sound just like a baby. It is said that if the cry is loud, the creature in far away but if the cry is soft, then the creature is near! If its victim has his or her eyes open when it is near, it will suck them out of their head!

Kuntilanaks are believed to locate their victims by sniffing laundry that is left hanging outside overnight. Even today, some Malaysians will not leave any washing outside in case a kuntilanak is lurking nearby.

7. Ghost Captured on School Field Trip

This photo was sent to a paranormal investigation site by a girl known only as Rachel. The students were reportedly on a field trip somewhere in the UK when one of them managed to snap this picture. Behind the head of the girl in the middle of the top row is a ghostly-looking face.

The poster claimed that none of the students noticed the mysterious face until the photo was uploaded to computer.

She went on to say ‘…it’s quite clear to see a ghosty figure lurking behind one of the females. If you look closer, the head has all the features: a nose, eyes, etc, but doesn’t seem to connect to a body. Some of the white ‘mist’ also seems to fall over the left shoulder of the female involved.’

While its possible that the mysterious face simply belongs to a person who was walking past the students just as the photo was taken, it certainly has a ghost-like quality about it and if you look closely, it even appears to be see through.

What do you think? Could this be the head of a disembodied ghost? Or is simply a trick of the camera? Let us know in the comments section below.

6. Ghost Girl Caught on Film

In 2015, students snapped this photo in the toilets of the Isidro Rodriguez Building at the Rizal High School in the Philippines. At first glance, the picture seems totally normal. That is until you notice the creepy figure crouched down by the blue bin. It has pale white skin and long black hair. Its appearance is very similar to the girl from the film, The Ring or even the fabled kuntilanak, the vampiric ghost reportedly seen in a previous photo.

While an image like this would be very easy to fake, the girls involved claim that the photo is genuine.

Rizal High School is one of the largest schools in the world and is believed to have been haunted since the 1980’s. The Isidro Rodriguez Building in particular, is said to be home to the ghost of a student who died there more than 20 years ago.

After this photo was taken, many students began to complain of supernatural encounters. So much so, that the management of the school were even planning to have the building blessed.

Have these girls actually managed to capture the restless spirit of the deceased student? Or was it just a well crafted hoax? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
