Family Photo

The Family Photo is a tale of horror about a young girl who dies and her distraught mother who wonders what has become of her daughter.

Family Photo

There was a single mother who had three daughters. The youngest daughter was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The doctors broke the bad news to her mother. They told the poor woman that her daughter had only three months to live.

The family were devastated by the horrible news. The mother decided to have a family photo taken while her youngest daughter was still alive. That way, they would always have something to remember her by.

They hired a professional photographer to come and take the photo. The family posed with the youngest daughter sitting in the middle of the picture and her mother and older sisters arranged around her. Afterwards, they had it framed and hung it over the fireplace in the living room.

Three months later, the youngest daughter died in hospital. Her mother and her two sisters were at her bedside when she passed away. The funeral took place two days later.

After the funeral, the mother was sitting in the living room when she happened to glance up at the family photo over the fireplace. She was horrified to discover that her daughter’s face in the photo was shifting and changing. It looked distended and deformed. Almost demonic.

They brought the family photo to the professional photographer and complained. He said he had no explanation for why the photo would suddenly change, making the dead child appear so grotesque.

The mother was at her wit’s end. She took the family photo to a psychic and begged the psychic to tell her what was wrong. The psychic took one look at the family photo and recoiled in horror.

“I’m sorry to have to tell you this”, said the psychic. “Unfortunately, your daughter fell into hell.”


  • @Raven Walker,

    it could have been because the picture was hanging over the fire; fireplace. otherwise, i don’t know.

  • Haha oh yeah I remember this….some of you dudes are scared of the pic. In fact you guys seem to talk more about the pic than the story haha. Hmmmm I wonder why she went to hell….what did she do that nobody knows about?

  • i showed it to my friend and he was like”what’s this?”NO REACTION!!though he usually has a straight face no matter what happens i was still surprised

  • Uh…. that pop up almost made me have a heart attack. And what did “fell into hell” meant. ples some one tell me what it means.

  • I should have known that that photo was a scary pop up. Funny story; Today during guided study (study hall) my teacher (he’s the best) showed us a bunch of scary pop ups and be sent them to his wife and mom. Also my math teacher walked into the room and she about had a heart attack when she saw the pop up.
