A Really Creepy Reddit Post

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

    Thats the thing. Just because it can be done with photoshop does that mean that it definitely was? Are we to just dismiss every single ghost photo as photoshop now? I mean if everyone were to be that cynical whats the point of talking about it at all? (not having a go at you by the way)

    The eyes look like sunglasses, like billinga said. And to me it looks like a grown woman.

    Probably, but the lenses don’t appear to be the same size or shape.

    It looks so fake…call me crazy, but I don’t buy it. It looks like someone’s aunt in the beehive with dark circles painted around her eyes…I want to believe…but not this.

  • Mariana Fuzaro

    Yeah, disappointing that ‘the real thing’ might not be out there, just fakes. Or the real thing mistaken for a fake.
