Ghost Photo: Real Ghost or Poster Child?

fake_ghost_photo

Last week, redbookmag.com posted this photo with the following explanation:

“Anastassia Perets was flipping through an old family album when she stumbled across a photo of herself taken when she was four years old (she’s the one in the spunky red pants). In the background, another child appears to be opening a door. Seems normal enough. But there was no little girl there—well, not living at least.”

While the magazine implies the blonde girl in the background is a ghost, critics aren’t so sure. Many point out that the blonde child appears oddly flat, as if she’s part of a poster or photo glued to the wall. Others point out that the child bears a striking resemblance to Poltergeist’s Carol Anne or a girl from a V.C. Andrew’s cover (Flowers in the Attic or My Sweet Audrina). What do you believe?
