Retro Creeps: Scary Portraits From The Past

Submitted by on April 23, 2010 – 5:30 AM65 Comments | 407,882 views

I’m the kind of person that still gets the chills when I come across the image of Linda Blair as the demon-possessed child in The Exorcist.  I’m sure that I’m not the only adult that still feels that way. Even when I visit a cemetery I’m looking behind my back for some guy in a suit, gawkily roaming around…with his arms extended out in front of him. Maybe moaning, maybe not.

There are some images that I think are even more creepier than that of a demon-possessed child or zombie. Family & old school portraits. No, seriously.  There are those portraits that are cute and good looking, then there are those that make absolutely no sense. As if David Lynch or the Brothers Quay were responsible for taking those shots.

So with that in mind, I present to you the most creepiest, incomprehensible and retro portraits that have ever been taken!

I'm a writer, a runner, and a hell of a coffee drinker residing in Los Angeles. I'm currently working on a book about Doris Bither and her terrifying account of a haunting in Culver City, California. The case was dubbed "The Entity" and it stands to be one of the most controversial cases ever to be studied by parapsychologists.

    Mr. Ortega, I think this is my first visit to ghosttheory, but, your name does seem very familiar. I think I read an interview or short story by you about an interview with a teenage chupacabra. very entertaining. I’m glad to find your site. Where can I find your stories? looking forward to reading more of your work.

    I LOVE these kind of photos. I have an album on my FB dedicated to these kind of pics lol. Glad to see there’s another online album of sorts with them.
    Cheers

    You seem to have gone to cloudflare (causing “server offline” errors to show) and your minify settings are causing all of your js to fail, resulting in no adverts being displayed on your site. I had the same problem with cloudflare, it keeps telling my visitors the server is offline when it is not.

    Maybe it’s just me but I don’t feel like some of these are very scary. Like the rabbits ones I don’t understand why they’re so creepy. Or the family picture ones, I don’t understand.

    The guy hanging upside down. wow something ain’t right there. Blow it up and rotate it look at his face. Really wish I hadn’t seen that.
