    These are the creepiest things I’ve ever seen. I’m scared to go off this page cause I don’t want to see the last one again. Other than the lost one, I think the red dot one freaked me out the most. You’re just staring at the red dot and suddenly you notice something in the corner of your vision and you look at it and suddenly you see this face. The girl next door picture was also scary cause I had seen the picture before and felt like something was watching me. I looked but I couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary. But i looked at it here and the top of a guy’s head is visible! AHHH!

    I figured out the happy family and then I was scared. They were hiding a man in the sofa


    @blooderalla in the girl with phone the scary thing is look at her legs her legs are opposite….
    and in the family one the mother with baby in hand is sitting on a head of a person… and the other persons in family are also sitting on his body.
