Real Ghosts Might've Been Captured On Camera At The Hotel That Inspired 'The Shining'

The haunted hotel that inspired The Shining is undoubtedly one of the eeriest places in the United States. Plenty of hotels claim to have ghostly presences, but real haunted hotels are hard to come by. Ask anyone who's been on a ghost tour at the Stanley Hotel, though, and they'll tell you the building's ghostly reputation is earned. The real-life haunting behind Stephen King's The Shining has fascinated and terrified guests for decades.

One thing definitely makes the Stanley Hotel stand out amongst other hauntings: its ghosts aren't exactly camera shy. Over the years, many strange and chilling images have been captured by guests and ghost hunters alike, spawning speculation among non-believers and enthusiasm in the paranormal community. 

In September 2017, a photograph from one of the hotel's guided ghost tours has once again aroused interest in the spooky old resort. But are those actual ghosts in the image, or is the photo a fake? Either way, this picture is definitely bizarre.
