Update on “The Anguished Man”


Remember the creepy story of the haunted ‘Anguished Man‘ painting? Here’s an update from the owner:

“I thought you might be interested in the latest “Anguished Man” news. I recently moved in with my parents temporarily and obviously took the painting with me. It was only in the house for a few days when the noises started, the same noises I had previously experienced. Then, on the third night, my father fell down the stairs, the same way my son did at the other house. Thankfully, he was unhurt, but I have now moved the painting back into storage.

I have been working closely with John Blackburn and Ian Lawman of Mysteria Paranormal Events. I’ve taken the painting to some of the allegedly most haunted locations in the UK, including 35 Stonegate at York and Chillingham Castle in Northumberland.

It was on the evening of 18th May 2013 at Chillingham Castle that a group of people experienced events that were both terrifying and unexplainable. None of the guests were prepared for what was about happen in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The room went icy cold, a large dark figure appeared in the middle of the séance circle, and a large wooden bench banged on the floor of its own accord in response to John Blackburn’s questions to the painting. Then, the bench suddenly flipped upside down by what was believed to be John Sage, one of Chillingham Castle’s resident powerful spirits. We think John was showing his anger to a foreign, uninvited spirit in his castle. John Blackburn stated it was the strangest experience in all his years of investigation.”

Here’s a link to the YouTube videos showing reportedly paranormal activity occurring around the painting.

  1. I would be pretty pissed too if something like that was brought into my home. I would never disrespect the spirits in such a manner.

    It is reckless, foolish, and dangerous to all involved. And if this thing has a spirit bound to it then he needs to go into the light and that painting burned. Especially if people are falling downstairs.


  3. The guy featured in the painting is a demon or something. I about crapped my pants when I saw a story on this for the first time. I’ve seen that man before, in a nightmare. I saw his face as he kept screaming in horrible pain. His skin was burned with large popped veins, his eyes were more like silver disks or empty hollows filled with silver, and his ears were almost melted onto his head. the colors of his skin were vivid shades of red and brown and appeared to look cracked and bleeding. I drew a black and white sketch as best I could as soon as I woke up with tears in my eyes, unable to hardly breathe until the image was out of my head and on paper. It still haunts me sometimes, though I’ve never had another nightmare like it. I don’t even like looking at the sketch. Even though my talents were not enough at the time to accurately portray the horror, I still get unnerved when I pull it out.
