Its not witchcraft, paranormal and the woman in the pic is not death, yet. She is poisoned by a person, probably a medicine man in the village.

Porcupine fish, puffers, filefish, trunkfishes: all these families of marine reeffish contains tetratoxine.
People who survived have said that they recalled the whole incident and where afraid to be buried alive.

Its the same trick as the zombies of Haiti. All it takes is fish poison, a evil person and the victim.



Thats what i think to these dudes are sick, but money talks and this would sell...The person in the pic is not dead but in a state of a kind of suspended animation she has been zombiefied, barely alive. Her mind is taped in her own concept of death and the living dead, brought on by indoctrination/believes for the mind, and chemicals/drugs for the body. The living dead..... zombies. Kind of like meth heads only it slows everything down.

here is a link to the things practiced in those parts of the world, and some practice this black magic in this part of the world.

From the article.


On the morning of May 2 his two attending physicians, one of whom was American and the other American -trained, pronounced Clairvius Narcisse dead. His body was identified by his oldest sister, Marie Claire, who affixed her thumbprint to the death certificate, and he was buried the next day. Eighteen years later, Angelina Narcisse was walking through the village marketplace when she was approached by someone claiming to be Clairvius Narcisse. The man identified himself by a boyhood nickname which had not been used for years and which was known only to members of the immediate family, and he had a bizarre tale to tell. He said that shortly before he was pronounced dead, he felt as if his skin was on fire, with insects crawling beneath it. He heard his sister Angelina weeping as he was pronounced dead, felt the sheet being pulled up over his face. Horrifyingly, although he was unable to move or speak, he remained lucid and aware the entire time, even as his coffin was nailed shut and buried. He even had a scar which he claimed was sustained as one of the coffin nails was driven through his face. He felt the sensation of floating above the grave. There he remained, for how long he did not know, until the coffin as opened by the bokor and his henchmen. He was beaten into submission, bound, gagged, and spirited away to a sugar plantation that was to be his home for the next two years. On the plantation, Narcisse and some other zombies labored from sunup to sunset, pausing for only one spare meal a day. He would later report that he passed his time there in a dream-like state, devoid of will or volition, with events unfolding before him as if in slow motion. Freedom came two years later. One of the zombies was being beaten by the bokor for insubordination, and in desperation the would-be victim managed to grab a hoe and kill his tormentor. The zombies all then escaped. Narcisse spent the next sixteen years wandering the Haitian countryside. He wrote to his family repeatedly, but his letters went unanswered. Only after the death of the brother he believed had arranged to have him done in did he dare to return to his village. In 1982 his case came to the attention of two researchers: Dr. Nathan Kline, a prominent psychopharmacologist who had worked in Haiti for thirty years and who had played a central role in establishing the Centre de Psychologie et Neurologie Mars-Kline, Haiti’s first (and only) modern psychiatric facility, and Dr. Lamarque Douyon, the center’s director. These men realized that opening up the grave of Clairvius Narcisse would tell them little. If the man claiming to be Narcisse was a fraud, he (or his coconspirators) could easily have removed the body themselves. On the other hand, if he had truly been a victim of zombification, those responsible could have substituted another body, which by then would be unidentifiable (this was in the days before DNA fingerprinting). Instead, with the help of Narcisse’s family, Dr. Douyon came up with a series of questions about his intimate family history, which the man claiming to be Narcisse answered correctly. There was certainly no apparent motive for fraud in this case (zombies in Haiti are treated as complete social outcasts). His answers, together with the testimony of Narcisse’s family, neighbors, and physicians, convinced Dr. Douyon that the man claiming to be Narcisse was indeed who he claimed to be. If his story was true – and there was every reason to believe it was – then it would be expected that there would be a material explanation – some kind of drug which reduced the heartbeat and ventilation to imperceptible levels while allowing the victim to be brought back from the brink of death. The potential value of such a drug was enormous, as a new anaesthetic or even as a means of inducing suspended animation for astronauts on long space flights. In 1982, at Kline’s behest, a twenty-eight-year-old Harvard graduate student named Wade Davis journeyed to Haiti in search of the secret of the zombie poison.

the LAST day you should resurrect the dead is the third day after their death, they dont wish to be disturbed after that and their bodies are in bad shape...

amazing though, great find!

Great find buddy! I've read about this kind of practice before, and the picture(which is amazing) seems real to me. Like some members have noted you can see the coffins behind the deceased being prepared before it is finally buried. Anyways S&F and thanks for sharing!

Are you guys so gullible that you cannot even see the open casket on the right? No? what about the coffin lid leaning against the other 2 coffins behind the woman? No? Well the simple fact is, this rigamortis stricken CORPSE is stuck in your typical 'final resting stance' (notice the head slightly leaning forward as if it had been propped up by a pillow in the casket)

The people in this photo are more than likely-
A. Family members.
B. Grave robbers, looking for items of value (gold necklaces etc.)
C. Relocating the burial site and/or crypt (also seen the background)
D. Performing some sort of religious ritual.
E. Identifying possible misplaced corpse
F. Necrophiliacs.

The list is endless..........just use your head, observed the photo carefully and stop watching soo many zombie movies lol

No need, once the body is that dry...there is no weight. If you have ever felt body parts that are that old, they're almost weightless. Holding that corpse upright would be no different to holding up a length of ply wood.

Seriously, this is not a zombie. Take it for what it is, and old malnourished lady. You wanna see a real zombie? Go stand next to the drive through of a McDonalds, you'll see tons of 'em.

F. Necrophiliacs.


N-A-S-T-Y !


Looking at that body and imagining the dirty deed is a no brainer.

Not even if I was marinaded in Viagra overnight and 'encouraged' by Megan Fox would it even be possible. lol

I've just comprehended the horror of what necrophilia really is about. Barf!

I'm glad I'm being cremated.

As for the picture .. it's either a corpse being moved or it's a poor poor woman who has a disease that hasn't been attended to. Either way ... I'm glad I'm being cremated. Can't make ashes that have been scattered walk around.

looks like a form of leprosy to me to be honest, with these small villages there are lots of stories that they are walking dead etc when they have no idea what is going on and one man (witch doctor) brings in his own interpenetration on things,

Wee Mad.

Think of it this way, (given you had to choose between the 2) What is more believable? That woman is a zombie...or...those guys are necrophiliacs. IF you had to choose between those 2, what is more of a reality?

you can't tell that is photoshopped? My GOD I can tell that so easily. SOmebody just took the woman in that picture and made her look like an undead. The lighting in the face and hair are all wrong and look to crisp and clean.

This is a hoax.

it's a corpse in my opinion and you can not rule out leprosy either,look
at the man's arm and leg on the left of the corpse he has some medical
condition by the looks.

as for the zombie phenomenon well you only have to look to Haiti.
they use the toxin of the blowfish as a poison that will put a body
into a deep sort of coma,they seem dead to all the locals only to
wake from the poison days later wandering around confused and
still suffering from the poison.scary.

The initial story sounds like an old wife's tale or folklore
that is known around certain parts of the world.

yeah could be, but wouldn't the locals not want to touch? you know the old leper fear. she sure looks dead

Contrary to popular myth, leprosy is not highly contagious. Most people are in fact completely immune (like 95%). If properly treated, people with leprosy are not contagious at all.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I would guess that is a real photo of a real corpse, but based on the inclination of the head, it was stood up out of the coffin after rigger mortis had set in. The head appears as though it had been resting on pillow, and stiffened that way.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.


Agreed. I suspect it is a rtitual. Storing the bodies in limestone caverns affords for mummification. the body would be dehydrated and relatively light. The picture when examined...there is a wooden plank at a right angle emerging from the rear of the body. The mumified body is mounted and then 'walked": for some ceremonial purpose.

Ok, after reading all the posts here I've come to my opinion of the likely story.

The picture is real, but it's a corpse.
Reason #1:
If you look directly to the right of the corpse, you will see the casket from which the body was exhumed.
The form inside the casket closely matches the positioning of the corpse.
Reason #2:
Look inside the casket beside the upright corpse.
It has 'remnant's' of a dead body...
Skin patches, mold discoloration, and the cloth interior is slightly green, matching the skin color of the corpse.


Yes, it's a dead body.
Yes it's standing upright but it's in the same exact position as it was laying.

Probably exhumed for one reason or another and it looks as though it might be placed into a 'new' casket.

Case Closed.
Dead body.
No 'walking dead'.

PS: Disgusting at that!

But there are other similar photos in a link. I don't think it is photoshopped. It is not so hard to believe people propped up a corpse.
