12 Photos That Just Might Contain the Real Grim Reaper

Man of woman, conservative or liberal, if there’s one thing that everyone can be excited about, it’s the fact that death is coming for us all and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. But is the mythological representation of death, the Grim Reaper, an actual entity that pops by this mortal coil to usher our souls into whatever exists beyond this plane? Or are the Grim Reaper photos you’re about to see a bunch of hokum? That depends on your ability to discern between what’s a trick of the light, what’s the product of quickly thrown-together Photoshop, and what might just be proof of the Grim Reaper.

Is the Grim Reaper real? Admittedly, some of this Grim Reaper evidence is scant at best. But if you think about it, wouldn’t Death, the Grim Reaper, the Harvester of Souls, George the Skeleton Man, be hard to photograph? One, it’s a skeleton and they’re very skinny. To accurately capture Grim Reaper pictures you would need whatever cameras people used in the '90s to capture images of Kate Moss. Two, the Grim Reaper is technically something that moves between two worlds and maybe it refracts light differently or something? Sometimes you just have to give people the benefit of the doubt. Keep reading and don’t fear the Reaper (sorry).
