29 real-life vintage photos that will surely give you a good scare

Now, as a horror writer and a fan of horror, I remotely get scared. Let’s face it, majority of the illusions we conjure up in our minds are of that, in our minds. Unfortunately, there are those minuscule chances where I do get a little frightened. Not of the fictitious characters, but of those of reality. It doesn’t help listening to some Dean Martin alone when you’re viewing these photos that I’m about to present to you. But, if that’s what thrills you, then by all means have a go.
