For centuries, there has been strong debate as to whether ghosts really exist. While many people think that ghosts are just a figment of the imagination, something dreamed up by Hollywood writers to sell tickets and scare moviegoers, others have had experiences that just can’t be explained with logic. Objects missing or even moving around, lights turning off and on, footsteps, voices, and wailing are just a few of the paranormal experiences some people have faced in the past that are just unexplainable.

Many cultures believe heavily in ghosts and spirits, believing that lost loved ones remain on the earth after they've passed. For years, cameras and video recording equipment has also caught weird things not seen by the person taking or posing for the photo. Light orbs are said to represent spirits, while transparent, ghastly images have been caught on film as well. Sometimes, even a person with detailed features has made a surprise appearance in photographs.

While paranormal experts insist that ghosts are real, there are still people that just don’t believe. These 20 photos are scary, haunting and may be a little more persuasive for those who think that ghosts are all just part of scary horror stories.

Anyone who has watched the movie The Amityville Horror knows that it is based loosely on true events. The DeFeo family lived in a home, and the eldest brother, Ronald, killed his parents and four siblings, blaming an evil presence in the home for his actions. After the events, another family purchased the home, and they fled from the house, claiming that it was haunted. The real story behind whether or not the house was haunted has been questioned for years. However, one photograph has turned up that shows the house may have indeed been haunted. The photo depicts an empty hallway with a child peering out from behind a staircase. It has been rumored that this child looks like one of the DeFeo children, one who was killed by his brother.
