Ghost Picture of the Day: The Figure in Black

In 2011, the Poultney family visited Port Arthur, Australia’s Trentham Cottage and snapped a few photos. The figure above appeared in one of their shots. The Poultneys told a reporter the cottage was empty at the time of the pic and that they have no idea who, or what, the man might be. Port Arthur is a former convict settlement and was the site of a major massacre in 1996. What do you believe?

Ghost Picture of the Day: Cemetery Baby

Here’s another famous ghost picture that I’ve been reluctant to post as it seems too good to be true. The story behind the photo, taken in Queensland, Australia in the mid-1940s, is that a woman snapped a pic of her teen daughter’s grave and this baby appeared in the developed photo. The woman didn’t recognize the infant, and she claims there were no children at the cemetery that day. What do you think?

Reader Submission: Cemetery Fright (Pics)

cemetery ghost picture

“Two friends and I went on a ghost tour to the West Wallsend Cemetery in Newcastle. We took a lot of photos and on getting home and checking them, we saw that we had captured all sorts of orbs of different shapes and sizes.

The most disturbing photo was of my girl friend Mel. I took a photo of her sitting in the far rear corner of the cemetery, but I couldn’t see anything because it was pitch black. When the flash went on and lit her up, I could see the bench she was sitting on and the surrounding bush land. We heard twigs snapping in the bush behind her, but assumed it was possums or some other wild life and thought nothing of it.

After a few days, I put the memory card into my computer to check the photos, and I was gob smacked. It was creepy and awful. Mel appeared to have a slit throat with blood gushing from the wound down her top. Her hands were bloodied as well, and her face was a little distorted. There were a few orbs above her, and high in the trees was a ghostly figure with an evil face peering down at my camera lens. It was the freakiest thing I have ever seen. We have been told that in the late 1800’s there was a man murdered in or near the cemetery.”

Here are the photos mentioned in the account. What do you make of them?

Reader Submission: The Evil Dolls

“Weird things started happening to me about a year ago. I moved into a new unit in Brisbane, QLD, and got my porcelain dolls back from my mother’s place. I have had the dolls since I was 5 years old. Everyone used to tell me they were evil, but I didn’t believe them.

Anyway, I put the seven dolls away in a box and left them in the spare room. I then began having nightmares, starting with one or two a week. After a little while, they started to occur every single night. I’ve never experienced nightmares like this in my life. These were full on extreme night terrors. I didn’t understand what was going on and was exhausted all the time from lack of sleep.

I then started to hear some kind of scratching noise coming from inside the closet or from just outside my room late at night – never during the day. At the time, I thought it might be a mouse. These things happened for a couple of months.

One time I was sitting in the lounge room, watching TV, when all of a sudden I saw two small red eyes on the side of my cat’s body when he standing on my lap. They were just staring at me. I looked behind me to see where it was coming from and saw nothing but a blank wall. I looked back and the eyes were still looking at me. Then they slowly faded away. I always felt a strange, uncomfortable presence in the house, but wasn’t sure if it was because I had just moved in on my own and was scaring myself or if it was something else. I think I used to make excuses for everything so I didn’t think I was going crazy.

On another occasion, I was lying in bed and had the outside hall light on when I saw a murky dark shadow come across the ceiling and into my room. It then disappeared. The last thing that happened before I spoke to someone about the weird events was when I saw a demonic-looking face in the reflection of the base of my lamp. It was staring at me. The thing had dark circles as eyes, and it wasn’t clear like a human face, but was definitely a face. I turned off the light and ignored it and went to sleep.

I eventually spoke to a lady at work, a Jehovah’s Witness, about everything that happened, and she told me that I had something in my house that was causing the problems. I didn’t fully believe it was the dolls at the time, but I ended up throwing them out in the industrial bin that weekend because something needed to happen to make it stop. The dolls were worth hundreds of dollars, but I was not risking it. That night, I had an extreme nightmare about them. The dolls were at my Nan’s house, where they had been originally, and they had killed my cat. In the dream, I found his body in the kitchen sink. My cat is still alive now, LOL, but I always check on him to make sure he is safe.

It’s been over 9 months now, and since getting rid of the dolls I have had no nightmares, no weird noises, or feelings of another presence. I feel stronger and healthier, and I always pray from time to time, asking the lord to protect me and Hugo (my cat). Everything stopped after I threw out those dolls. I now know not to ignore things and to become more in touch with my spiritual side. And I will never buy my daughter a porcelain doll!”
