The Anguished Man
The Anguished Man is a panting owned by the family of Sean Robinson. Sean says it was originally owned by his grandmother, who had always complained that it was evil. His grandmother often spoke of a man walking around her house at night and several mysterious sounds, including that of an unseen person crying. Sean’s grandmother added that the artist who created the painting mixed his blood with the oil paint he used. After he completed the painting, he committed suicide.
Sean claims his family started experiencing strange events after receiving the painting, following the death of his grandmother. Sean himself complained of seeing a mysterious person crying, a strange mist at the top of his stairs, and a man standing at the foot of his bed, staring at him.
Sean sometimes took the painting on tours to haunted locations across the UK. During one such tour at Chillingham Castle, John Sage, one of the most powerful spirits in the castle, reportedly angrily threw a bench upside down because of the presence of the uninvited spirit.
