If you're the kind of person who noticed that October came and went without a scary movie, take heart: the latest Paranormal Activity is the best in the series. Subtitled The Marked Ones, it opens in theaters today. (And Paranormal Activity 5 will follow in October 2014.) January might not conjure up any Halloween feelings, but people like getting scared regardless of the time of year. Heart-pounding terror is some weird sadomasochistic thing lots of us are programmed to enjoy.

No matter how much we enjoy those movies, there's always the comfort of telling ourselves, "It's not real." However, that's not to say that a paranormal encounter in reality isn't possible. It is, and there's proof. Want something that'll actually make you keep your light on at it? Here are pictures of real-life ghosts that'll scare the shit out of you.
