Oh, look! Pretty pictures…

Okay, so maybe not so pretty.

I’ve been tasked, of late, to gather some spooky pictures together.  No, don’t ask me why, life is just weird like that sometimes.  But it did get me thinking – I do that sometimes – as to just how subjective something like “spooky” can be.

After all, a friend was saying to me just the other day that she won’t ever watch The Human Centipede because it sounds terrifying.  Whereas I know I can’t watch it because I couldn’t stop laughing the moment I first saw the stills and a laugh-out-loud reaction would potentially put off other cinema goers.  Mad scientists and body horror is great for a gross out, but scary needs something more, and spooky is another thing again.

So, who’s interested in stripping off and jumping in the crowd-sourcing spa with me?  You tell me – what spooks you?  And more importantly for my current purposes – what of the below would you classify as a ‘spooky’ photo…

‘Till next

  1. For me, it’s /almost/ the window in a window shot – I would probably find it spooky if there were a sort of obscured figure standing in the far window, barely visible through the drapes. I think. Or that might break the mood entirely.

    And, again, almost the picture of the doll. I think I’d find it spooky if the doll’s eyes were actually looking at the camera (ie just the eyes, not a shot of the doll facing the camera). But again, I can’t be sure because the doll’s eyes /aren’t/ looking at the camera.

    Obviously, things that spook me are subtle things (I get the most scared when I’m alone and things are dark and quiet, after all) that simply shouldn’t be happening – ie there’s no rational explanation for them.
