Are your doors locked? Did you hear that creak? Was that a shadow from a tree or a visitor from the beyond? I’ve got just one more question for you: Are you ready for some seriously creepy photos?
No matter what tingles your spine, there’s a photo here that’ll raise the neck hairs on anyone who is brave enough to peruse our list created especially for Halloween. There’s nothing to be scared of — or is there?
1. Eye Game Strong
This 1950s illustration makes me think this little girl is too excited about her jam.
2. I Spy With My Little Eye
I’ve always been a bit weirded-out by dolls with this type of face. Something about their smirk and plastic expression just rubs me the wrong way. In this setting, the “something is off” factor is turned up a notch when the doll is put face to face with two scaled-down adult dolls, giving a vibe that this doll may have powers I’m not aware of — but definitely don’t want used on me.
3. Creepy Decapitation
This dismembered doll looks like something out of Saw. The burnt-out hues of this photo add to the horror movie vibe.
4. Just Clowning Around
This slinking circus member gets a spot on the list thanks to his sinister, yellow-toothed grin, his jumpsuit, and, of course, the bloody bags he’s lurking around.
5. Evil Bunny
This spring-themed mall mascot never seems to come off as cheery or well-spirited as it should. Kudos to the little girl for seeming so calm and collected despite sitting on the lap of a furry fiend with a menacing glare.
6. A Mystery Mirage
The Internet is alive with pictures of the dead. Whether they’re “wonders” of Photoshop or true ghouls caught on film, photos like this example make me scared to look out at my own patio when darkness falls.
7. A Ghoulish Surprise
The white eyes of this vampire-looking visitor are awash with spookiness. I feel sorry for the seemingly unknowing human on the right.
8. Upside-Down Photobomber
If this was a family photo, it looks like the patriarch made his presence known, despite his upside down and unlively state.
9. Chuckie, Revisited
This doll has a larger-than-life quality to it, the doll’s operator has an expression that is more than a little bit haunting, and the question seems to be — who’s the real vocalist here?
10. A Cultish Encounter
I stumbled upon this old photo and couldn’t come up with any explanation for its setup that didn’t evoke thoughts of a seance, cult ritual, or satanic sacrifice of an old car that bit the dust. The cloaked characters and dark lighting in this black-and-white still are scary and bizarre.
11. An Eerie Doppelgänger
When a Civil War buff uncovered this snapshot, there was no denying the resemblance that was un-caged. Instantly, rumors started circulating: Was this famous actor actually just a member of the undead who’d hit it big in Hollywood this century? Also, ask yourself which photo is scarier: Nick now or “possibly Nick” from before?
Creepiness is All Around
I hope I gave you a good fright or two and showed you that the creepiness is all around, whether you like it or not. Mwahaha!
