  2. SQUID says:

    What’s so creepy about this? It’s a cute little girl in a blue dress? What are we, scared of little girls now?

  3. Annie says:

    Pic was submitted by Austin – so either he’s messing w/ us or he liked to play dress-up.

  4. rebecca says:

  5. customcartoons says:

    Worse yet, what happened to her twin??

  6. Liz says:

    Oh my lord. this looks like my house now. The hallway is IDENTICAL, if it is, she’s standing outside my room and the guest room.

  7. Mimi Burns says:

    I think Halloween should have its own box of greeting cards and this should be on the cover- a serious goldmine here!

    “Hello Danny….come play with us….forever…and ever….and EVER!!”

  9. Sim says:

    As soon as I saw this picture, my phone rang and I heard a really raspy voice say “Seven Days”

  10. Shannon says:

    This is creepy….was this girl with her parents in another room? That does look like a scary movie for sure.

    the SHINING!!!

  13. Liz says:

    I loved it; I watched exactly 5 min. of “The Shining”, as I was WAY too scared to finish it. But this picture also reminded me of the movie where the kid says “I see dead people”. What’s so perfect about this picture…is that the parents were tring to get a good picture. And had what they THOUGHT was a “photographic opportunity”.

  14. Lucy says:

    What’s scary about it?? I don’t understand…

  15. Jonathon says:

    Probably one of the more creepy pictures I have seen. Gosh, it gives me the chills even.

  16. Becca says:

    Horror movie moment anyone?

  17. TKall says:

    This pic gave my husband the willies. Planning on keeping it bookmarked. Pretty sure that if I show it to him again, and whisper “Redrum,” he’ll do anything I ask! πŸ™‚

    Thanks AFP!

  18. JOhn says:

    Some film director who is making a horror film will see this and make it into a movie poster. I just know it.

  19. Bernardo says:

    Ha ha, the caption would have improved tenfold if it had said: “β€œWe were touring our new house while it was under construction in 1989. I was 4, AND STAYING AT MY AUNTIES. My parents were taking pictures of various rooms and I was wandering. Then this happened in a hallway.”

  20. Super Dave says:

    I really like the blood stains in the carpet; nice touch.

  21. armchair hero says:

    Danny isn’t here, Mrs. Torrance. :::shudder:::

  22. jj says:

    If only there’d been two of you…

  23. Allison says:

    Kind of reminds me of the photo I took in a hotel hallway in upstate New York, sans scary children. The whole hotel reminded me of the Overlook.

    This photo is eerie. I love it! πŸ™‚

  24. Rick says:

    I saw this photo and immediately said to myself “redrum redrum”. Then I read the caption. Its perfect and awkward worthy.

  25. chris f says:

    Did they get a Big Wheel?

  26. cko says:

    This is definitely creepy…but not sure how this fits as an ‘awkward’ family photo?

  27. seriously says:

    that doesn’t make sense—what happened? your parents took a picture of you bring unhappy in the hallway?

  28. Lil' says:

    This photo should definitely be in the next AFP book. You are creeping me out.

  29. Laura says:

    If only it was video, then we could have seen the door at the end of the hall open up and a river of blood flow down the hallway.

  30. OOP says:

    That is creepy. Very creepy.

  31. hushupp says:

    What am I missing here? I do not understand what happened in the hallway. Can someone help me out here??

  32. TM says:


  33. Lori says:
