    “Won’t you stay with us and have some… ummm… chicken. Yes, that’s right, chicken?”

  2. doodah says:

    Norman Bates’ siblings.

  3. Allen says:

    Believe or not, the woman in the middle looks exactly like my mother! She also had a sister and a brother. Gulp! Family skeletons?

  4. me says:

    is the light on the floor? Look at the long shadows on the wall behind them! It’s like they were trying to make this creepy. And the woman on the left looks pissed about something.

  5. Cross bow says:

    I think the most awkward part of this one is that they have 4 framed pictures of fireplaces or kitchens or something instead of family photographs or nature paintings…. weird! They must be morticians, if so they they aren’t awkward at all but extremely natural, normal, and relaxed.

  6. Taylor says:

    OH my. Not only does the woman to the far left looked like she want’s to kill whoever took the the picture, but mom seems to be planning her revenge on someone. The shadows are very scary. I’m really quite scared now.

    …. OH MY GOSH!? IS THAT ANNE FRANK AND HER FAMILY!?!? lol.

    It’s the lobby at the Bates Motel

  8. Sod Rerling says:

    Portals to upgraded dimensions are featured on the wall behind. They are easily accessed by poking through, with the wooden lady’s arm.

  9. Lady Ice says:

    this picture is beyond awesome

  10. IAmNoOne says:

    It was sad they were cut out of the final print of Night of the Living Dead.

  11. Helen says:

    Has anyone noticed the 1st lady has a wooden arm?

  12. Nate says:

    Pleasantville 2: The Awakening

    PS. Scared the poo out of me

  13. Sarah says:

    I think the guy is kind of hot.

  14. emm says:

    whats that guy got in his hand that is barely creeping into the picture????

  15. Cee says:

    When I look at this photo, I feel like I am the TV looking at them.. in that respect, it’s an interesting shot.

    The shadows scare me.

  16. mexigarian says:

    brought to you by the makers of duck and cover…

  17. arch says:

    I can’t stop thinking “Twlight Zone”

  18. mjdg says:

    I’m curious to know the relationship of this terrifying trio! Mr. Man and Ms. Middle have the same….exact….face. I wonder…..Is it a conjoined fraternal/identical triplet? (sorry…i called them “it” but it is just so perplexing.)

  19. cattyn says:

    I imagine the lady on the left saying, “You did not bring your casserole in a regulation size caserole dish with a tight-fitting lid.”
    Oh the horror!

  20. MCR says:

    Beware the thumbprint…

  21. Yukonzdad says:

    Notice how the lighting appears that somewhere down and to the left a lamp has been knocked over & is shining up from the floor. I believe that this was the camera man’s last photograph ever. He knocked over the lamp after they did whatever they did to him. Then sat down, smugly convinced that they had finished the job…but his finger twitched…one…last… time…>Shivers< Well, I’ll be seeing this in my nightmares for months! Thanks AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com!

    • babymaker says:

      Ha! That’s awesome! You are SO right!!!

    • Rachael says:

      Spot on. It has to have been taken by someone on the floor!

      A DEAD person…they had to pry the film from his cold, dead hands and had the film developed.

      However, they realized that if this photo was released, it would mean impending doom for the rest of the family…

      All other photos on this site now pale in comparison to this horrific masterpiece.

  22. KC says:

    ” Monsters on Maple Street” ahahahaha

  23. GW says:

    It’s the TV-eye view. Now that’s *really* creepy. This photo was leaked from the top secret TV Eye on America files. *shudder*

  24. springjack says:

    “Look deeply into my eyes. You feel sleepy…sleepy…you will vote for Nixon…”

  25. Tom says:

    Let’s see… vast dead space above subjects heads, check. Severe, up-angled lighting, check. Knowing smile coupled with soul-piercing gaze, check. Yes, this photo qualifies as horrifying. They could have amped it up a bit by having Mr. Friendly holding a cleaver or a hatchet, but that might have pushed it into the camp category. I shall be haunted forever by these ghouls.

  26. Tocsnai says:

    Classic example of one of my favorite family photo traits: The inability to frame things without drifting, drifting, drifting until something appears in the veeeeery edge of the frame. That corner between the wall and the ceiling, methinks, is a recurring element in the ol’ family album.

  27. Tara says:

    “You are about to enter a dimension, a dimension of sight and sound……”

  28. MST says:

    Happy birthday grandma, now drink the Kool-Aide.

  29. Cindy says:

    awesome

  30. Snowrider says:

    That is the most creepy picture I’ve ever seen. The lady on the left looks like her head is not actually connected or about to fall off! The strange shadow across her face adds to the whole modulus of creepyness.

  31. Kerrie says:

    I don’t want to see what they’ve got in their basement…

  32. MB says:

    What are those disc-like things on the back of the sofa? Pillows? What a strange place to put pillows!

  33. Bequi says:

    The people on the right really don’t look that bad, except it looks like the lady is using the front lady for a puppet.

    • Bequi says:

      Correction: A HAND puppet. See where her arm goes up the front lady’s back? See how her head is cocked weird? And how her arms are just laying in her lap because lady #2 can’t get her other arm around to the little wires that move her hands?

  34. edstirling says:

    “what do you mean you don’t like the sweater?”

  35. nite owl says:

    How do we know it’s a holiday?????

    • Kimberly says:

      That’s what I was thinking! What holiday is this, Halloween? Beltaine? Blood Sacrifice to Kthulu Day?

    • katherine says:

      when you submit a photo you tell them about the picture. like when it was taken……don’t you understand how this website works? you submit a photo with info about the photo. they make up a title and a caption. durp

  36. laurie says:

    They’re just about to lift their arms and snap twice….

    Wait for it….

  37. Tim says:

    It was right after this picture was taken that Jeff suddenly noticed the pickaxe and shotgun placed at Mr. and Mrs. Clayton’s feet.

  38. Tim says:

    “Of course you can spend the night…IN THE CELLAR!”

    Dun-Dun-DUUUUUUUUH…!

  39. Gordon says:

    Why do I get the feeling that someone was trying to take a picture of an empty sofa?

  40. Sarah says:

    i love this, in fact, i am going to try to recreate the look with my own family.

  41. Rich says:

    The pictures on the wall are also confounding.

  42. MGirl says:

    As usual, the guy appears to be clueless of the evil that lurks.

    I love this, I am going to do a whole photo shoot like this!!

  43. jensco says:

    Now that’s not awkward – that’s just down right creepy…

  44. Michael says:

    Oh, ok. I thought the “awkward” part was the pictures hung incredibly close together.

    “Marge, we need more white space on the wall. Put them closer together. Closer. Yeah, perfect.”

  45. Theresa says:

    they look like extras from “The Others”……

    • hani says:

      I can see the cloudy sky outside, hear the thunder… they are coming. no way to run away… come to take you far far away

  46. Dancin' Homer says:

    Is that the birthday cake girl?

  47. Kandee says:

    This pic is extremely disturbing and yes, awkward. I’ll prolly have nightmares about the woman on the left – she scares the —- outta me. The lighting and shadows and even the strange pics on the wall all add to the frightening quality of this pic. Would be a great trailer for a horror movie – “The People Next Door”. Wish ‘em into the cornfield Anthony!

  48. Bernardo says:

    Their eyes are saying how naughty you’ve been, and the one in the middle knows what’s coming to you. *Shudder*

  49. dramaking says:

    I swear the two women look like they are connected at the shoulder.

  50. Jaina says:

    It’s like… No matter which direction I lean, her eyes follow me…
