Graveyard Shift The Logical Explanation Behind The Cursed "Crying Boy" Painting  

Mick Jacobs

If a picture says a thousand words, then how many does a painting convey? In the video below, one painting from history carries quite a tale with it, one that always seems to end in flames.

The picture in question is called the Crying Boy, a well-known print created by an artist named Bruno Amadio. The print made its way around England and soon gained a reputation as a nefarious object.

According to legend, the image itself supposedly carries a terrible curse, one that specifically causes fires. After homes burned down, the picture would show up among the ashes, perfectly preserved.

The dark backstory certainly belies the innocent look of the overall picture. Do you think these tears are capable of terror? Watch the video to see if you believe.
