The fine folks over at Daily Mail Online have collected a fantastic set of extraordinarily creepy photos from cemeteries, abandoned houses, in the woods, and even a few normal photos that were taken during the daytime, all with an unexpected guest!
The Daily mail writes:
These are the things that go bump in the night.
From murdered slaves to tortured hospital patients to forgotten sailors, ghost stories will send a shiver down most people’s spines.
But this collection of images will call into question everything you think you know about the spirit world… and how easy it may be to cross back over from the ‘other side’.
Paranormal investigators have spent decades painstakingly researching each photograph, debunking some and failing to disprove others.
Take the tale of the white lady of the Philippines.
Locals of Quezon City steer clear of Balete Drive at night as they say that a woman in white with long black tresses, face covered in blood, stands in the centre of the road, staring at oncoming vehicles.
Drivers try to avoid the street at all costs – but if they must pass, they pack their backseat with passengers because if there is one empty seat, an uninvited guest just might take it. In photographs, she appears as a bright, white light in the road, legs barely visible.
Or consider the story of Chloe the inquisitive slave.
Chloe lived at the house of Myrtle’s Plantation in St Francisville, Louisiana. She would often listen in on conversations she wasn’t supposed to, snooping in on her master’s private talks.
One afternoon, Chloe was caught. According to legend, her master cut off her ear as punishment.
For revenge, Chloe baked a cake out of oleander leaves, which are poisonous. She wanted her cruel master to taste it, but his wife and daughters beat him to it.
She fled the house, but was lynched by her fellow slaves. She still haunts the plantation to this day, listening in on the conversations of its visitors. Chloe can sometimes be seen hiding behind the doors, columns, or bushes on the residence.
But not all ghosts have been scorned.
An Australian woman named Mrs Andrews was visiting the grave of her daughter in a cemetery in Queensland, in the 1940s when she took a photo. Her daughter Joyce had died the year before at the age of 17. She was shocked to find a child in the photo that she did not recognise sitting on top of the grave.
Australian paranormal researcher Tony Healy visited the cemetery in the late 1990s to find out what had happened. He found that near Joyce’s grave, two infant girls were buried.
