Vintage Scares #24: Creepy Found Photos


Is there anything creepier than an old found photo, and there's something going on in the picture that just doesn't seem right.... maybe even a bit sinister?  Take for example the photograph above.  What the f**k is going on here? These nice ladies are singing to the children when up walks a limping grotesque figure dressed in black.  Can we assume he is going to try and kill them all?

Remember to click on the photos to view full sized...

Okay, it's probably not some sort of satanic cult, but the way they're standing around with those blank expressions puts me a bit at unease.  But the real troubling figure here is the dude in the background by the door.  I can only assume he's the Manson of this "family".

Why is this chick sitting on a gravestone in an overgrown graveyard? It can't be departed friend or relative's headstone because she wouldn't be sitting on it smiling.... or would she? That would be even creepier.

Okay, I'm down with the witchy woman schtick - the black cat is a nice touch.  But what's up with the creepy clown?

And speaking of creepy clowns... good lord, this one is downright horrifying. 

This one seems innocent enough, until you notice the dude on the floor is slipping something in a drink! View full sized and look closely at his hand emerging from behind the table - there is definitely something small and whitish colored in his hand.  Something creepy is going on here....

  1. Pretty sure in that last photo the dude has a cigarette and is dumping his ashes in a cup. That used to be a common practice among smokers in the 70's as I recall.

  2. As if the clown weren't creepy enough on his own, when you zoom in you see all kinds of grit and suspiciously thick hairs all over the photo ... shudder ...

  3. We used to have a table like the one in the seance picture. A giant spool with a glass plate on top. Very odd, I even thought so as a child.

  4. The woman with the cat is trying a "come hither" type look, and it's totally failing. You're right though, the random clown picture askew on the wall is the focus of this one.

  5. I'm not completely convinced that the the witchy woman is in fact a woman. The clown, on the other hand, is all man... a very drunk man.

  6. I'm going to have nightmares from seeing that clown photo...because all clowns are evil deep down.

  7. And here I am re-watching Twin Peaks! These pix are very David Lynch!

  8. I picture the short besuited figure in the first photo looking like Fats, the creepy ventriloquist dummy from the movie "Magic", if he turns around! He's got that limp dummy stance along with the cheap suit.

  9. Your blog is so damned awesome. I bow before you with humility.

    Look at the creepy dude in the blue in the second photo looking ever so slightly up at the camera. Yeah. I'll be seeing him in my nightmares tonight.

  10. Last photo is a halloween party - there's a plastic jack-o'lantern on the right and the tablecloth says "boo!" repeatedly.

    They are also New York Jets fans, which explains much.

    The guy in the last shot is rolling the ash off of his joint.
    Trust me.

  13. The picture of with the candles looks like a PTK honor society initiation. All the people look to be college age. The older lady to the side may be a teacher.

  14. The one with the candels may be a PTK honor society initiation to me. They all look to be college kids, the older lady to the side might be a teacher.
