Creepy And Mysterious Photos That Will Give You Nightmares

3. Alcatraz Ghost

Alcatraz Island and Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary have been named as one of the most haunted places in America and the most haunted prison in the country.

The Native Americans have claimed to encounter evil spirits on the island long before the prison was built. And famous writer Mark Twain documented the eerie atmosphere of the island after visiting it as “being as cold as winter, even in the summer months.” Even prisoners, rangers, and visitors have reported a wide range of suspected paranormal activity on Alcatraz.

Just like this British couple who had an encounter while visiting the island. Sheila Walsh took a photo of a visitation block window where there was a figure of a woman, dressed in what looked to be the 1930s or 40s clothing and hairstyle. The woman can be seen staring directly through the window at the camera from inside the inmates’ visitation waiting room. On the left is what the window is supposed to look like. Be careful of the photos you take, you’ll never know who could appear in them.

4. Post-Mortem Photoshootpost-mortem-photoshoot

Believe it or not, this is an actual photo of a dead boy. Yes, post-mortem photography was a thing back in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, during the Victorian era. It was a normal part of the American and European culture.

The photographers were hired by grieving families and the postmortem photographs not only helped in the grieving process but often represented the only visual remembrance of the deceased and the photograph was considered one of the family’s most precious possessions.

Just imagine how challenging it was since there was no photoshop back then and the Department of Health would definitely freak out. Good thing the practice became obsolete.

How would you feel knowing that you’re living your last moment and breathing your last breath? Scared as hell, right? That could be how this girl probably felt.

This is the last known photo of 14-year-old Regina Kay Walters before she was murdered. The photo was taken by her murderer, Robert Ben Rhoades, a serial killer, and rapist. He even cut her hair, made her wear a black dress and heels before killing her. Sick.

Robert Ben Rhoades was a truck driver who had a torture chamber in the back of the 18-wheeler truck that he drives. The photo was taken in an abandoned Illinois barn. He is believed to have tortured, raped, and killed more than 50 women.
