The Most Horrifying Supernatural Photos

Updated on February 5, 2014

You all know the lady in the corridor ghost photo, right? But photos like those are never enough to get us reaching for the salt and iron. Don’t fret, I’m here to refresh your supply of absolutely horrifying supernatural photos.

1. The Spirit in the Car

This is one old photo, so faking it would have been almost impossible. Take a look:

This happened when a lady was visiting her mother’s grave and after taking a couple of photos of the gravestones, took one of her husband in the car. When the picture was developed, they were both shocked. The woman identified the spirit as her dead mother. It was taken in 1959.

2. The Louisiana Swamp Monster

A deer hunter in Berwick, Louisiana found his hunting camera was broken after he found it, but the memory card was still intact…with this image:

This photograph has been discussed on NBC:

The hunter says he hopes the animal/human is a vegetarian, in case he ever runs into it again.

3. The Demonic Dog

A Colorado man, a drug addict, came home from his wedding to find a demonic dog over his left shoulder. Apparently, they submitted the photo to paranormal investigators who said it was not a fake.

Well he quit his drug addiction because of this photo, so even if it’s a fake it’s a very good fake.

4. The Inhumane Handprint

This has been tossed around on Snopes, and it’s not yet proved true (but nothing is in the supernatural realm, is it?). Basically, this girl Elizabeth Hetzler disappeared from her dorm at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania on the night of February 12th 2007. Her door was locked, so was her window, and her room was on the third floor.

The day before, Elizabeth had told her friends of a strange experience she’d had, and she was feeling extremely paranoid and thought someone was following her. So what makes this story so creepy? Well, take a look at what was left on her window in the morning…

Apparently it’s a hoax, but this is the image that was on Snopes, if you want to check it out.

Which is the scariest photograph?

      The spirit in the car has always been one of my favourite ghost photos, and as far as I know, still unexplained.

      That Snopes page is a fake. Here's the real McCoy:

      @JenniferLBlack: My thoughts exactly! I guess fakery would have been possible but it would have been extremely difficult, and with the technology we have today we would've proved it to be fake by now.

      Great post! Very interesting, especially being that the time frame eliminates some of the options to fake such things as there is today..

      @pctechgo: Hmm maybe... Even if they are fakes there's still something to them. Still creepy.

      I think the first photo is the most realistic and the creepiest and I thought it was a man too!

      Very creepy! For me, the first photo is the most unusual, although to me the ghost looks like a man. Maybe mama was not all that pretty?

      I believe they are all fake, lies, or scams. Even the "spirit" in the back seat of the car - such a clear image of person with even a reflection on their glasses?

      @Jodah: Yeah, it's crazy how real it looks. Very demonic.

      I just came back to check out the demonic dog video because it didn't work for me the first, that's freaky.

      @Harvest Moon: Salt and iron really do have mythological roots in driving away spirits. But I also used to love Supernatural! :D

      Salt and iron - Supernatural comes to mind! :-) Great article!

      @Jodah: Yeah, a lot of the things you sift through the internet are fake, but think about it. Everyone on this planet has experienced something supernatural or knows someone who has. Not everyone could be faking or imagining it, right?

      Very creepy hub. I watched some of the other videos on here as well. A lot could be fake, but some is just unexplainable. Voted up.
