A holiday pic that quite frankly, scares the crap out of us.

“Won’t you stay with us and have some… ummm… chicken. Yes, that’s right, chicken?”
Norman Bates’ siblings.
Believe or not, the woman in the middle looks exactly like my mother! She also had a sister and a brother. Gulp! Family skeletons?
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.
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.
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
Portals to upgraded dimensions are featured on the wall behind. They are easily accessed by poking through, with the wooden lady’s arm.
this picture is beyond awesome
It was sad they were cut out of the final print of Night of the Living Dead.
Has anyone noticed the 1st lady has a wooden arm?
Oh! Wow! You’re right! This picture just keeps getting weirder and weirder! Eeep!
Pleasantville 2: The Awakening
PS. Scared the poo out of me
I think the guy is kind of hot.
whats that guy got in his hand that is barely creeping into the picture????
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.
brought to you by the makers of duck and cover…
I can’t stop thinking “Twlight Zone”
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.)
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!
lol!! Best comment so far 🙂
Is her name Marney and has she hosted Thanksgiving lately?
Too funny!! She’s holding her stomach trying to comfort the ache from eating too much of the mashed potatoes.
ZING! good one!
amazing comment – you win! or…you lose…awkward
Beware the thumbprint…
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!
Ha! That’s awesome! You are SO right!!!
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.
” Monsters on Maple Street” ahahahaha
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*
“Look deeply into my eyes. You feel sleepy…sleepy…you will vote for Nixon…”
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.
he just may be holding a cleaver or hatchet…what IS THAT in his hand????
A blunt instrument.
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.
“You are about to enter a dimension, a dimension of sight and sound……”
Happy birthday grandma, now drink the Kool-Aide.
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.
I don’t want to see what they’ve got in their basement…
What are those disc-like things on the back of the sofa? Pillows? What a strange place to put pillows!
We always put the pillows on the back of the sofa so we could sit in the seats…the pillows were for decoration, not for comfort!
OK. I get it now! LOL
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.
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?
“what do you mean you don’t like the sweater?”
this is the best comment. i love it
How do we know it’s a holiday?????
That’s what I was thinking! What holiday is this, Halloween? Beltaine? Blood Sacrifice to Kthulu Day?
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
You must be lost by rhetorical questions. Too bad isn’t it?
They’re just about to lift their arms and snap twice….
Wait for it….
It was right after this picture was taken that Jeff suddenly noticed the pickaxe and shotgun placed at Mr. and Mrs. Clayton’s feet.
“Of course you can spend the night…IN THE CELLAR!”
hahaha–i laughed out loud!
Why do I get the feeling that someone was trying to take a picture of an empty sofa?
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! creepy! (and hilarious!)
Oh my. Can you imagine opening the developed pictures? Goosebumps.
Ten seconds without breathing – laughing so hard – a new record.
i love this, in fact, i am going to try to recreate the look with my own family.
what a wonderful idea for this year’s holiday photo!
The pictures on the wall are also confounding.
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!!
LOL, know what you mean.
Now that’s not awkward – that’s just down right creepy…
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.”
hahahah laughed out loud at this comment
they look like extras from “The Others”……
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
Is that the birthday cake girl?
yes!!! i have that pic as my wallpaper. this pic is right up there with the creepy factor.
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!
Their eyes are saying how naughty you’ve been, and the one in the middle knows what’s coming to you. *Shudder*
I seriously laughed outloud w/ your comment
I swear the two women look like they are connected at the shoulder.
Hey. Even Siamese twins (whoops….not PC?!….)…err…conjoined twins need to send out Christmas cards.
If we can’t/shouldn’t say “Siamese twins” anymore….uh, then what should we now call “Siamese cats”?
‘cats formerly known as siamese’
Ahahaha! Awesome! You win!
SNAP! Love it.
conjoined ca—er, nevermind.
OMG! Wonder how many heads THAT went over?
It’s like… No matter which direction I lean, her eyes follow me…
“Come and play with us, Danny.”
forever and ever and ever…………..
ROFL! You are right!
