Ghost Photo Roundup: Investigating the Internet’s Weirdest Paranormal Pictures

The internet is a virtual treasure trove of goosebump-inducing photos filled with ghosts, some of which may be bonafide evidence of the paranormal, and some of them – ok, a lot of them – which definitely aren’t. In this edition of the Ghost Photo Roundup, we’ll take a look at some of the weirdest and and most interesting examples of ghostly photography making the rounds on the internet. Hit the lights and let’s get spooky!

Ghost In The Hallway


This exceptionally strange photo was snapped by a group of carpenters in Norway who were hired to perform renovations on a historical site. Unfortunately, after just a few weeks, the men began experiencing some unexplainable activity. The strange knocks, disembodied voices, and other mysterious phenomena got so bad that the men refused to finish their work on the basement. After a particularly active day, one of the men took a series of photos down a particularly problematic hallway, and when they discovered what resembled a “white shadow resembling a man” in the images, they left and vowed never to come back.


The Mysterious Visitor


This odd photo was taken on January 11, 1978, and has been at the center of many debates about the validity of the image. According to the photographer, Richard Wiseman, the woman shown partially hidden was not only not there when the photograph was taken, but at the time Wiseman was sure he’s never seen her at all. Of the many photos taken that day, this was the only picture that the mysterious woman appeared in.

Cemetery Shadow Man


Taken in an unknown graveyard, the “Cemetery Shadow Man” is another image that always sparks quite a bit of debate. Many believe the image shows a man standing in front of his grave, however, others will often point out the strange two-dimensional shape of the shadow, claiming it to be photoshop. Whatever you believe , you can’t deny that the image is super creepy.

Terrifying Photobomb


Taken by a woman known only as “Heather in Pennsylvania”, this photobomb would have sent me running in the other direction. Forget the kid, I’m gone.

I took this photo of my son with my Samsung Verizon camera phone,” Heather wrote. “He was sitting with his back to the couch. I’m still trying to figure out what the apparition is behind him.”

Skeptics have theorized that the image is just a reflection, however, the photographer was on the other side of the phone taking the actual picture and claims that no reflective surfaces were facing the lens.

The Creeping Demon


This image was snapped by a group of paranormal investigators exploring an unnamed park in Salk Lake City, one with a history of bizarre activity, the team claims. The group were investigating the rear of the park at around 3am, when the photographer shot a series of photos. At the time, the team reported that they didn’t see anyone else in the park with them, although they all claim to have felt a strange “spooky feeling” which sent them all in the other direction. It wasn’t until they got home to review their evidence till they discovered the horrifying, red-eyed “demon” staring back at them from the darkness.

      you think….i thought it looked no different, than if his mother was sitting right behind the lad holding him steady..if i hadn’t already been told there wasn’t anybody really there, it wouldn’t of struck me as odd at all.

    I think the photobomb is just crappy cell camera double exposure from the kid moving. Look at the hair lines and the eye, they match.

    The demon in Salt Lake, is that a old fireplace its hiding in? Its shadow also looks a little to solid compared to the other shadows.

    Question about the last picture with the “demon” in a cemetary. Doesn’t it somewhat look like a brown-ish pitbull, silently watching ?

      It looks like it might be an animal. Maybe a small mountain lion? Wild dog? Gila monster (don’t they have those in Utah?). Lots of possibilities, maybe a local park ranger might know, assuming the “park” was a state or local park maintained by public authorities.

      It is creepy, whatever it is, and made creepier by the missing-person type flyer posted on the wall.

      Wonder if there were any footprints or scat nearby, or if a daytime photo of this area is available. Let me guess…they never went back?

    Took this a couple of years ago at Waverly Hills on the 5th floor while investigating with my team, 313 Paranormal Society. Look to the right and then down at the end in the doorway. That doorway leads to Rm.502 where tragically, sadly and reportedly a nurse hung herself. What do you guys think?

    The second picture looks like a normal pic, I guess you just have to take their word on it about her not being there.

    The photobomb pic looks like a woman had the boy sitting on her lap with her arms around him taking the picture, thats why she’s peeking around the side to see if he’s centered in the picture. You can see her shoulder on the right side as well.
