Family Accidentally Photographs Ghost Of Dead Neighbor At Child’s Birthday Party

Family Accidentally Photographs Ghost Of Dead Neighbor At Child’s Birthday Party

There’s nothing worse than having a terrible neighbor who won’t stop dropping by, but what happens when that neighbor just happens to be dead? An eerie photo from 2002 just surfaced, and the photographer claims it shows the ghost of his deceased neighbor stopping to celebrate his niece’s birthday.. from beyond the grave.


The man who snapped the photo, who goes by the screen name dopelclaus, posted the image to the reddit, saying that, for fairly obvious reasons, the family was pretty freaked out when they developed the photo. That fear only grew after he ran the images through a few Photoshop filters, which uncovered a rather menacing figure learning around the corner of the frame.



The family had only been living in the house for six months before the photo was captured, and as it turns out, the previous owner had, in fact, died in the house. The real kicker? The family was able to track down the original owner’s son, who verified that the strange-looking man in the photo was his father, even telling the family that he was wearing the same clothes that he was buried in.


Whether you believe the story, the photo is undoubtably creepy, and as always, worth talking about. Let us know what you think in the comments below, tweet us @WeirdHQ, or drop us a line on Facebook.

      Look between the ‘foot’ and the corner of the picture. It’s a man’s face – two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Creepy.

    It looks fake…but is very creepy. Perhaps I’m just hoping it’s fake!

    that is one evil looking mother****!!! is it me, or do those eyes look like snake eyes, i’m sure i can make out slits rather than round pupils. It may remind the man they found, of his dead father, but i personally reckon this is a Demon taking on a kind of human form, and i tell you this, if it is the guys ole man, then he had a problem, coz he does not look nice, he does not look nice at all.
    This family needs to look out for this beautiful innocent child, because i don’t think there is any good intention emanating from this spirit, and if he’s got his eyes on that little girl…..well, they just need to be very careful.

    OMG. Ok, who else thinks the neighbor looks like Vigo the Carpathian of Moldavia (creepy painting guy) from Ghostbusters II?

    What’s creepier is the fact the child is a black eyed child….

    How can they tell what clothing he was wearing?

    Well, kudos to the family who dressed their daughter in a train engineer outfit…girls can be train engineers too, even though all train themed toddler outfits seem to be assigned to the boy section. Yay! Since the photo was taken in 2002 and the kid appears to be 1-2 years old, it’s likely that the kid is now about 16 years old. I’m assuming she hasn’t spent her entire life haunted by some lurky-loo just around the corner?

    The unidentified face in the fame looks a bit more like a moody teenage vampire than a dead dad ghost to me. He looks Lost Boys-esque, in fact. I mean, I’d put my money on weirdo vampire party crasher versus ghost dad. He was probably after the blood of a first born son and then when he realized first born son was a daughter in an engineer get-up, he threw up his hands and went back to his lair.

    Does anybody else see the multitude of demonic looking faces beneath the big one. Could be paredolia, but I don’t think so!

      Holy crap! Yes! It may very well be paradolia, but when you zoom in there’s a whole lot of ugly going on in those shadows…

    I think the child looks pretty creepy to be honest.

    Am I the only one who thinks the original picture just shows some fancy wooden trim in the corner? You know how some times people have overhead trim around entry-ways that don’t have doors? Maybe the flash of the camera caught it just right and created the ghostly figure. Is this a stretch? It just looks too good to be real!
