This photo of the “Hook Island Monster” was snapped by French photographer Robert Le Serrec off the coast of Queensland, Australia in 1964. Years later, no one’s really sure what that tadpole-shaped thing is.
This photo was taken sometime in the 1950s of the Cooper family, who had just moved into their new house in Texas. The story goes that once the photo was developed, this creepy view of a body hanging from the ceiling became visible. Real or not, it’s still pretty unsettling...
Freddy Jackson was an airman mechanic who was killed when he accidentally walked into a plane propeller in 1919. This photo was taken two days later, on the day of Jackson’s funeral.
The creepy part: once the photo was developed, the men in Jackson’s squadron were able to identify his ghostly face peering out from behind one of his fellow men (in the top row, fourth from the left).
This photo was taken in 1941 during the re-opening of the South Fork Bridge in British Columbia. If you look closely, you can see a young man wearing sunglasses and a hoodie and t-shirt. He’s also holding an advanced-looking camera for the time period.
Is this guy a time-travelling hipster? Or is he just an extremely modern-dressing guy from the 1940s? We may never know for sure.
Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian tourist, was found dead in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles in 2013. The photos featured are from hotel surveillance footage, in which she can be seen hiding from an unknown something in an elevator shortly before her death.
What’s even weirder is that the autopsy report showed no signs that it could’ve been a murder, or that she had been intoxicated in any way. And to this day, no one really knows how she got onto the hotel roof. Creepy.
This photograph was taken in 1963 by the Reverend K.F. Lord at Newby Church in Yorkshire, England, who assured that he could not see the figure while taking the photo. While it looks fake upon first glance, photo experts have examined the photo and determined that there was no double exposure involved.
Most everyone knows of the legend of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, but no one has been able to prove its existence. This photo was the first claimed sighting of Nessie in 1934, published in The Daily Mail.

This photo shows the rescue crew for the nine climbers who died at Dyatlov Pass in the Ural mountains in Russia in 1959. The story says that the hikers ripped open their tents in the middle of the night, trying to run away from something unknown. When the rescue crew discovered them, their clothes were strangely radioactive, and one hiker was even missing his tongue. Still, no one knows why any of this occurred.
No, we’re not referring to the popular ‘90s movie starring Will Smith. This photo was taken in 1968 when a couple claimed that a “man in black” was terrorizing them after reporting a UFO-sighting. They reportedly saw the man observe them from across the street for three days until their friend snapped this photo of him.
