If you read about or investigate the paranormal for a hobby, you probably have come across the story of the Amityville Horror, where a family in Amityville, New York spent twenty-eight horrific days in one of the most infamous haunted houses in the world.
The house, which is located at 108 Ocean Ave (formerly 112 Ocean Ave before the gawkers and tourists became too much to bear after the original film’s release in the late seventies and the street number was changed), also was where Ronald Defeo murdered six of his family members while they slept in November 1974.
Later the Warrens would come in to investigate the house in 1976, leading to one of the most chilling and controversial ‘real’ ghost photographs of all time, The Amityville Ghost Boy.
There is another photograph connected to the ever growing and confusing Amityville legend that has never really been brought to light.
It is said to have been taken in 1922 in the house that stood on the same property on which the Dutch Colonial the Defeos and Lutzes both lived in later stood.
And the figure within the captured image was claimed to be conjured during a seance no less…
The Daily Mirror recently published a photograph taken by one Adam Smith, who walking past the Brecon and Radnor Lunatic Asylum, which is located in Wales.
The asylum opened in 1903 and was also where German prisoners were kept after capture during World War Two. The site has been fully closed since 1999.
Smith was recently walking by the abandoned structure when he snapped a photo which to show a terrifying face in an upper window of the building.
A dash-cam caught some spooky looking footage in July of last year and a couple days ago the video below was uploaded of a french speaking couple traveling along a curvy road at night. Out of nowhere the legs of a figure can be seen up ahead, followed by the figure’s torso as the car’s headlights cast light on the ‘ghost’.
Cats and the internet.
They go together like bread and butter, milk and cereal and any internet based comment page and incessant trolling.
Now we have a cat named Loki who while not the brother of Thor and as far as I know is not a megalomaniac dictator,he does have the teeth of the un-dead.
This week, Loki has become a internet sensation, but there is an account in Japanese folklore of an actual vampire cat…
This one will be short and sweet because honestly this is just a horrible example of a possible paranormal capture.
First of all the video quality is atrocious and secondly there are so many explanations for this slight anomaly in the video that it boggles the mind that anyone buys this stuff. It could be a bug close to the camera, it could be a reflection from something (a crib mobile?) it could be Elvis returned from the dead to make a new album.
Even most of the comments posted on the You Tube link below say this is either fake or even worse most can’t even spot the ‘ghost’ content in the video at all.
But here it is in all of its…ahem…glory:
Norwich Cathedral, completed in 1145 A.D. has reportedly been haunted for years and now it seems there is some photographic evidence to back up those claims.
Stories of objects moving by themselves and other paranormal activity have been observed and the cathedral is a stop on many local ghost tours.
The photo, taken by Kerry Launders, shows what looks like a figure in the traditional garb of a Bishop.
Launders insists the snap shot is genuine, not a hoax and she did not notice the spooky figure at the time the picture was taken:
Ghosts and spirits are not always Humans returning from the dead.
Animal ghosts are just as common as Human ones and one paranormal investigator believes he has captured a phantom kitty cat on video at the infamous Shanley Hotel.
This infamous ghost image took the internet by storm in 2003. It was originally published in the Chicago Sun-Times on December 21st of that year and was said to be a still of CCTV footage from the Hampton Court Palace, located on the Thames river in London, England.
Although the Hampton Court is ripe with tales of ghostly apparitions and strange occurrences, the picture of the robed figure was immediately a topic for debate for both believers and skeptics alike.
Was it an excellent ghost photograph or a clever hoax?
An amazing photograph taken in Kirtland, Ohio appears to show a ghostly figure behind a small girl battling leukemia at the time the photo was taken.
However, Erin Potter’s mother, Jen, thinks the figure is not that of a spirit from beyond the grave, but rather a vision of the Virgin Mary and for Jen and her family one of the reasons Erin is now cancer free.
When thinking of ghost pictures, we may think of the classics we have known since most of us were kids, like or The Newby Church Monk.
However, there have also been some interesting pictures taken in the twentieth and twenty-first century as well, like the Brown Lady, the Amityville Ghost Boy or the ghost captured on film at Boot Hill Cemetery in Arizona.
One of the more remarkable examples of ghost photography from more modern times has been the case of the photograph taken by one Denise Russell.
Denise innocently took a photo of her grandmother at a picnic and eventually discovered that the picture also showed a figure that looked like her grandmother’s husband, who had passed away almost exactly twelve years ago from the day the photo at the picnic was taken.
Graveyards are one of those places that you just might expect to capture a photograph of a ghost or spirit. After all, it is the final resting place of our physical forms and has an obvious connection with death and whatever might lay beyond it.
So it might not come as a shock to anyone that one of the most famous ghost photos in the world came from a cemetery.
Even more impressive, the ghost seemed keen to get a ride to some destination in the physical world as the picture itself shows the spirit sitting in the back of a car!
It seems that for some reason, ghosts just love going down to a pub for a drink just like the rest of us, but it seems some also want to play bartender and pose for photographs as well!
That appears to be the case with the spirited spirit that haunts the Apsley House in Southsea, Hants, where the alleged ghost of a former barman tops off your drinks.
Japan’s major cities have a well known lack of living space for it’s residents and that means that the space that is available has to be used to the fullest.
That is definitely what the designers at Mizuishi Architect Atelier did and excelled at when they built this two story house on a tiny triangular lot in Tokyo.
