The Anguished Man

Welcome back, fellow humans,

Have ever heard about the mysterious artist of the Anguished Man?

The Anguished Man

Sean Robinson stated that the painting is haunted by the tortured soul of the creator who butchered himself to use his own blood mixed with oils and committed suicide as the painting was done. Sean’s grandmother kept the artwork hidden and often heard the screams of pain from the attic. Sean saw the painting as a source of oddity and curiosity. After the grandmother passed away, he brought the painting to his home in Maryport, England. He decided to hang the painting in the spare room. A sudden feeling of dread, nausea, anxiety and dizziness would engulf the Robinson family. Unexplainable footsteps, creaking, scratching noises, screams and cries of pain and loud bangs awaken the family in the middle of the night, and a shadowy figure of a tall middle-aged man would appear and disappear. He was slammed by an unseen force repeatedly, occurring between 3 to 4 am. At one point, he spotted an eerie, red shadow at the bottom of the bed and his wife saw a menacing red-faced figure. His son, Kenan was attacked and pushed down the stairs by an unseen force. Ultimately, he left the painting in the attic and constantly obsessed over the artwork, that he would soon bring it back from the attic.


At Chillingham Castle, a seance was held in a room where the guests felt a dark presence and a large wooden bench smashed on the floor regarding the questions about the Anguished Man. The artwork opened a portal to an unknown realm empowering a demon or a poltergeist to attack the Robinson family.

The painting is still in possession of the Robinson family and Sean is unwilling to sell it. 

What do you think about the artwork? Is it haunted? Do you believe Sean? 


Thank you for reading, fellow humans 🙂

  1. I don’t know what I am suppose to be finding in these posts. It seems like their were alot of tortured souls back in the past times that so munch false haunting and terrible events were conjured up. I feel sorry for these people that believed all this.


  2. I’m not sure that I would elect to hang this painting in my home, doesn’t quite go with the decor. It has a very interesting backstory, however.


  3. i can’t say for sure if i think the painting is haunted. But while the artwork is called “The Anguished Man” it lools like a man complaining out of sadness. This was an interesting post to read.


  4. The painting it self is spooky and I would not be surprised if there was something ghostly about it. I am not one to delve into this as I get spooked very easily.


  5. I mean it certainly does look like a portrait of a tortured man, but I am not sure as to whether I would like to believe as to whether the artist committed suicide. It certainly is an ominous tale isn’t it?


  6. This is definitely a new kind of haunting or cursed material. Something I have never heard of before. I always do love your little stories. Very curious to know about all the superstitious and supernatural things out there.


  7. There is no way I could ever get any sleep if I knew that painting was in the house. It looks like it just wants to suck out your soul. The back story makes it even more creepier! I do love a good spooky story thanks for sharing!
