I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

I often begin my articles talking about my searches for content. Well, guess what? This article is going that route as well. Frankly, I can’t help it as I find most of my stories from daily perquisition.

Now, I will preface this article by saying that the content shown is not my bag, per-say. In fact, I tend to avoid paranormal subjects as a rule. It’s just not something I excel at. However, there are a handful of articles every year in which I dabble in the land of ghosts and things that go bump in the night.

During my search yesterday, I came across a photo gallery. Slightlywarped.com was nice enough to gather up a compendium of spooky ghost pictures and put them all neatly on one page. So, who am I not to reward them by further viralizing (not a real word) their content? Why, I’d be a fool not to spread their wares…I think…

The following pictorial is a gallery of nothing but (alleged) ghosts. Yes, you may have seen some of them and of course, a couple have been maligned as being hoaxes, but there are plenty which are unexplained to this day.

I’ve done no analysis on any of these photos, so if you are looking for a debunking, it’s probably going to be you that’s doing it. Then again, that’s why we have a comments section, right?

So, without further fanfare, the Slightly Warped Ghost Gallery:


Most freaky to me is the last one, which I also used as the featured image. The “alleged dead mother” crawling on the floor gets my vote for second.

There are three I didn’t include, if you can believe it. So, if you’d like to see them, head over to slightlywarped.com. Incidentally, I’d also like to mention again, that they are my very extensive source for this very extensive gallery.

Have a great weekend!

  • Not hair-raising, ire-raising.

  • Way to post a bunch of obviously fake/misunderstood and proven fake pics. If I had hair, it would so not raise.

    Hey ‘senior editor’ who’s ‘writing a book’: “per-say” isn’t a word. If you’re going to try and sound pretentious at least spell correctly.

  • ghosttheory

    Wrong editor, you dipshit.

    Oh, and thanks for stopping by.

  • IThinkso

    Oh, come on Xavier! give gjregnrognoq some slack will ya and name it some fancy name like, psychokinesis, telekinesis, etc. Poor gjregnrognoq probably got mesmerized by some of yours sirius articles.

    Guess what know it all, I have a certain style and it sometimes includes having my own fun with words and phrases. Maybe next time, read a few of my articles before you chime in.

  • Scott_McMan

    LOLOL! Funny, these “dicks” seldom say a word when there’s nothing to pick at.

    I’m not trying to be a jerk or anything, but I’m just wondering why you have a “paranormal” site named “Ghost Theory” when you seem to not really believe in paranormal stuff…?
    Am I missing something here? Is this just a ghost/paranormal debunking site, or what?
    Also, a lot of the commenter’s here seem to not have any particular belief in the paranormal, either. And some of them are VERY rude!
    Please don’t hate me…this is my first time here, and I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read so far. I’m just curious as to what is going on here!
    BTW, some of these pictures are very creepy!
    I found the pic of the Texas Giant roller coaster quite interesting after reading about the woman who fell off of that thing a couple of days ago.

  • We don’t hate you, we are all about asking questions here. Did you notice the subtitle?

    A Skeptical Approach to the Unexplained.

    It is not so much that we believe or disbelieve, as that we are seeking rational answers, wanting to filter out the obvious hoaxes, the events misidentified by people who do not bother to think critically, and the urban legend from what may be truly inexplicable.

    We sometimes crowd source explanations, because there are people out there who have some expertise or piece of knowledge that can easily explain one story or another. Knowledge, facts are the key to explanation, not belief. Belief is a choice and not necessarily based on facts, or reflective of the factual interpretation of events. People are easily deceived, whether by their own minds or the influence of others.

    Evolutionists are the scientific psychics and their theories are magical scripture, which makes and breaks nature by just naming it, something fancy.

    What triggers human thoughts, is not a mystery according to the divine scriptures.

    Rebecca, I’ve on- and off-again looked at reports of the paranormal for decades. As long as I’ve been interested in this topic, there has always been a chasm of belief between those who think something genuinely odd is going on and those who think it is all nonsense.

    I strongly doubt we’ll see any resolution of the difference in views in our lifetimes; whatever may be happening is too ephemeral. It mostly boils down to personal experience and the experiences of those one considers to be reliable observers.

    This site could IMO stand some improvement, but then, I don’t know what its business model is and I am not impacted by its success or failure. That said, this site is better than some others I have seen.

    Certainly, the technology of today calls for reasonable skepticism as it is increasingly easy to produce impressive looking fakes.

    As for rude behavior — that unfortunately seems to be all over the internet; even more sadly, such behavior seems to reflect how some people would like to behave in “real life” if they could get away with it.

    BW, while I do appreciate your comments, I must also let you know that every editor at GT has a primary job to attend to. This limits in some respects our ability to focus the level of attention we’d like to if time permitted.

    We do our very best to provide a viewpoint that examines “the unexplained” from a logical perspective. We also try to remain as open minded as possible.

    Sometimes we need to get content up in a hurry and are forced to do filler pieces. Don’t get me wrong, these fillers are not merely thrown up as we want to remain appealing.

    When we do have the time to really investigate, it can sometimes take days, months or even years. As an example, I have a subject that I’ve been working on for 2 years now. It will not go up until I am satisfied that no stone has been left unturned.

    I mentioned appeal above and that plays a major role in what goes up on the site. We find that in many cases the readers want to be involved in the process. While we may have all the essentials of a story, we often leave details out in order to get people talking and contributing. It’s a delicate balance and over time you learn what is going to work and what isn’t. Of course, as human beings we also make mistakes from time to time. However, we’d like to think that we are open enough to admit those errors.

    Regarding the comment sections, we do our best to monitor and moderate. There is a standing we like to maintain here at GT and we believe that for the most part we keep the extremes under control. We want everyone to feel comfortable here and if they don’t, we want to know about it. Anyone can email us at any time and we promise to address your concerns.

    GT has been around for many years and that’s not easy in such a competitive field. We’d all love to quit our day jobs and maybe someday that will come to fruition.

    Thanks for your input, again, it is greatly appreciated.

  • BW

    Scott, thanks for your reply.

    Believe me, I well understand your comments about “real life” and work requirements versus pursuing a personal interest. There are a few documents I’d like to work on and “publish” on the internet, but time is limited and age is now taking a toll on how much concentration I can bring to bear after my workday.

    Your comment about investigations is well taken. I mentioned here once having seen a small crop circle — just a very cursory look at it took well over an hour and I didn’t have any instruments like a camera or surveying tools — that sort of activity could have easily taken a day just to document a small circle that was probably formed by a column of rotating air.

    I think a limitation of GT’s site format with articles is that topics tend to be fairly focused. While this is good in some ways, it also tends by nature to ignore more general discussion of the subject phenomena, be that ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, etc. As you point out, some of the lacking aspects I perceive may simply be casualties of how much time editors have available for a given article.

    Personally, I am not disturbed by the views of the staff on any particular topic. I have drawn some tentative conclusions over the years about some of these topics, but I realize everyone has their personal worldview when it comes to the paranormal.

    I’d say your comment is “full of fail” … You guys that come out of the woodwork and scream “fake” at every turn kill me. Really, get a hobby or something. You have absolutely nothing to offer, put no thought into your comments, just label everything “fake” …. You’re pretty much useless, and somewhat annoying .. although it’s not that hard to ignore your kind either. C ya.
