* Played for laughs in an episode of ''Series/Community''. After wandering into a theater, Chang is told by a janitor that the theater had burned down years ago. Chang returns to the theater and confronts the audience, who tell him that the janitor died years ago. Chang's sanity begins to erode and he wonders if he himself is really alive or not. The end of the episode features a slow, [[Film/TheShining Shining]]-esque pan into a black and white photograph of people in 19th century clothing, including Chang... and then with a ''Main/ScareChord'', we see "Old Timey Photo Club, 2014."

* The CreepyPasta "[[http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/minor-corrections/ Minor Corrections]]" by Creator/{{Slimebeast}} is about a mail-in photo development lab that will attempt to "fix" any photo they think seems "incorrect", meaning anyone in the photograph who had died between the time the photo was taken and the time the lab received the film will be shown in their deceased state. [[spoiler:They can also predict imminent future deaths, unfortunately the narrator was too late to stop his father from hanging himself]].

* Ransom Riggs created the story of MissPeregrinesHomeForPeculiarChildren around eerie old photographs from ten different collections, including his own, deciding to create his own context for them as their original contexts were long forgotten. The photographs are included as actual items within the story, and provide a very rare case of an author showing exactly how certain characters look.

* At the end of the fourth case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', Lotta does a group photo of everybody. She later says that she caught a ghost in the photograph, which makes her want to go back to paranormal photography. When we later see the photo, it shows [[TheObiWan Mia Fey]] standing beside the rest of the group.

* There's a darkroom scene in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} II'' where Ray and Egon develop photos of the [[SpookyPainting haunted painting of Vigo]] that were taken with special, ghost-sensitive film. The photos they see are double-exposed with the image of the river of evil slime flowing under the city. As the two Ghostbusters examine this, the developed photos catch fire and the door locks, and they're only saved by Winston breaking the door down.

* 1. Spectral Snaps: Overlapping with SeeThruSpecs, Spectral Snaps reveal objects normally invisible to humans - ghosts and [=UFOs=] are common ones. Detail ranges from blurry blurred blur to crystal clear figure.
* 2. Foreboding Photos: The picture somehow reveals the future. Whether it blurs out the faces of those not long for this world, or depicts a brand new car as a smash-out wreck, the photographs contain depictions of future events - and they are ''never'' good.
* 3. Negative Negatives: One step beyond Foreboding, these photos actively curse the victim, causing unfortunate, often ironic, events to befall the subject.

* King's novella ''The Sun Dog'' features a very... ''special'' camera. Pictures taken with it don't show what it was pointed at, but have a large black dog in the background that gradually comes into focus, getting closer and closer, and looking more and more menacing. Despite this, a character [[WhatAnIdiot keeps taking pictures with the camera]] (it's established that doing so is not entirely voluntary). Three guesses what ends up happening.
