You know better than to go near that house, boy. There’s witches there that’ll trap your soul in a mason jar and ghosts that’ll push you down stairs if you’re lucky, and claw your skin off if you’re not. What little comes outta that place aint never been good news. Ask your mother about it sometime.

Photographer Kilian Schönberger created Brothers Grimm Homeland
German photographer Kilian Schönberger recently has presented his new project called “Brothers Grimm’s Homeland”, where author mixed photography with illustration. Big trees, dark homes and moody environment - these are the key elements that connected these photos with legendary Brother Grimm even more. Love it!
A fully furnished home-made doll’s house created in 1850. The house contains china, furniture, utensils and dolls collected from across Europe. Dolls, doll’s houses and accompanying accessories were amongst the most popular Christmas gifts for young girls throughout the Victorian period.
this would look really cool in a horror film, all from the recordings of an iphone or something, ends on a cliff-hanger then the battery dies
OK SO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY which basically boils down to MY CAMERA DOES THIS.
ALL THE TIME.
Well not all the time but enough times for it to be worrying.
- The first time I was taking pictures up in the mountains near where I lived and I was taking a landscape shot near this creepy door that just stands alone in the middle of nowhere, and it flashed up “blink detected” and put a square over apparently nothing.
- The second time I was urban exploring in a fucking abandoned hospital and it came up with the face detected square twice, once outside and once in a dark hallway, and one of those times there was apparently a blink detected.
- The third time I was urban exploring in an abandoned village and I took a photo of the back garden of one of the abandoned houses and yup, “faces were detected in this image”.
I’m at least 110% convinced I have a magic camera. It sees dead people.
Y’all fuckers are out here exploring abandoned villages and shit and wondering why you’re seeing ghosts
I’m at least 110% sure you have made some ghosts really upset because you didn’t offer to retake the picture after they blinked. Rude.
After succumbing to a fever of some sort in 1705, Irish woman Margorie McCall was hastily buried to prevent the spread of whatever had done her in. Margorie was buried with a valuable ring, which her husband had been unable to remove due to swelling. This made her an even better target for body snatchers, who could cash in on both the corpse and the ring.
The evening after Margorie was buried, before the soil had even settled, the grave-robbers showed up and started digging. Unable to pry the ring off the finger, they decided to cut the finger off. As soon as blood was drawn, Margorie awoke from her coma, sat straight up and screamed.
The fate of the grave-robbers remains unknown. One story says the men dropped dead on the spot, while another claims they fled and never returned to their chosen profession.
Margorie climbed out of the hole and made her way back to her home.
Her husband John, a doctor, was at home with the children when he heard a knock at the door. He told the children, “If your mother were still alive, I’d swear that was her knock.”
When he opened the door to find his wife standing there, dressed in her burial clothes, blood dripping from her finger but very much alive, he dropped dead to the floor. He was buried in the plot Margorie had vacated.
Margorie went on to re-marry and have several children. When she did finally die, she was returned to Shankill Cemetery in Lurgan, Ireland, where her gravestone still stands. It bears the inscription “Lived Once, Buried Twice.”
