In this weeks’s edition of terrifying family photos, one man reveals a spooky picture snapped by his uncle sometime in the 80s… and it’s probably one of the creepiest tourist photos of all time. The ghostly image depicts what looks an awful lot like a really tall, really pale, REALLY horrifying bald “man” in a dark cloak. The Dark Man stands in the bushes, appearing to keep a close eye on a tourist perched precariously close to the edge of the Grand Canyon.
According to Redditor ZombieGandaffi, his uncle and some friends were on a road trip when they decided to stop at the canyon to take some pictures. They spent 15 minutes snapping photos, sure that they were the only visitors at that particular section of the canyon that day. It wasn’t until weeks later when ZG’s uncle had the photos processed that he noticed the very strange, undeniably creepy man standing in the bushes nearby.
“In the picture, not far behind my Uncle, was a man dressed in all black with pale white skin standing there in the brush just staring at the camera with a knowing smirk on his face… My Uncle and his friends claimed that they did not know this man, that they were the only ones in the spot, and the Grand Canyon was vacant of tourists at this time of year.”
Could an unsuspecting amateur photographer have snapped an image of the Grim Reaper as he prepared to take a soul? Or was it just some random, huge albino dude in a black cloak hanging out at the Grand Canyon all by himself? You decide.
Obviously there’s no good way to prove whether the image is real or a total hoax. We either take ZG at his word, or we don’t. To be perfectly honest, it doesn’t really matter what you decide, because the creepy photo of the Grand Canyon Grim Reaper managed to give me the heebie-jeebies at 9am on a Tuesday, so I’d say it did its job successfully.
Also, anyone else think he looks like one of those creepy grey engineers from Prometheus? Ugh…
