A man was taking pictures while on a guided tour of a cemetery that was featured in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" film, and when he reviewed the photos he noticed a strange figure in the background in one of the images. He sent it to Ghost Study for review.

Jacob quite possibly captured evidence of the paranormal in a photo that he took when he was on the Elgin Cemetery tour in Illinois last summer. In the image, a young woman-wearing-white apparition appears in the background in the treeline of the cemetery.

"This photo was taken at the Bluff City Cemetery from the 2010 adaption of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' movie. Our tour group was in the foreground at the entrance to this active mausoleum, however when you look closely in the background there's a girl ghost standing by the tree, watching you! This is the original, untouched, and unaltered photograph," Jacob said to Jim Eaton of Ghost Study.

According to Jacob, the photo was taken at a mausoleum at the Elgin Cemetery in Illinois. The cemetery as well as the mausoleum have a well-known reputation for being haunted.

employees of the prison believe that the car is evil and it is haunted. People that have viewed the photo have mixed feelings about it as some believe it is supernatural and others think it is some type of prank or hoax.

"This ghost was actually captured at a distance. So I had to enlarge quite a bit, as they suggested I do - and oh my heck - there's the ghost hiding slightly behind a tree. I find it extremely fascinating that this is the "Bluff City Cemetery" where the movie "A Nightmare on Elm Street" was filmed. That adds greatly to the appeal and to the scare factor," Eaton said in response to the photo.
