Spookyvision/Grungy pictures

I've been trying to achieve this kind of washed out smoky effect for a while, but mine never comes out the way I want them too. I've tried searching all over for a decent tutorial on the subject but since there are ten to fifteen different names for the kind of effect I want it's been like swimming upstream... very tiring.

I'm looking for approximately that effect but slightly less grey... lesser opacity on the effect layer obviously but I can't even get the effect right.

Help anyone?

Here's a thought for it, try adding a texture then changing the blend modes and reducing the opacity to suit.
there are hundreds of free textures out there it is just a case of finding the right one ! !
but here is a link to one you could try

thank you, was actually thinking more along the lines of developing fluids gone bad. Used to do them intentionally at school while shooting on film.
Thanks for the link though.
