Ghost Caught on Security Camera

Ghost Caught on Security Camera

I don’t often include ghost footage from YouTube archives on this site because I would be working around the clock – hundreds of new examples pop up on the streaming service every single day!

So, I try my best to limit their coverage to the uploads I find interesting.

The example we will be looking at today shows a ghost caught on security camera in an Egyptian pharmacy.

I decided to showcase it here NOT because I think it is legit…but because I think the ‘person’ who put it together has done quite a good job…


A Ghost Caught on CCTV Camera?

Hell no – but the editor of the video should really think about putting his/her talents forward for work on a indie horror film (don’t you think?).

It’s impressive enough to watch, but it’s blindingly obvious it’s fake.

First things first – do security cameras like this have audio on them?

I’m not 100% sure but I haven’t come across a CCTV setup that includes audio…well, not one that a chemist can afford, anyway!

Also, the glitch effect used on the final rendered video looks like a million green screen effects available (for free!) on YouTube itself – you’ll find numerous Found Footage Horror movies using them!


Fake?

I wouldn’t normally include anything on this site I felt was fake, but the level of editing and effort put into this was quite impressive at the end of the day.

Unfortunately, this is the type of thing we are up against these days – the truth will always end up being diluted by the high quality hoax efforts…which is a shame really!

Now it’s over to you – just because I think it’s fake, doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to follow suit!

What are your thoughts on this new ghost footage?

A real recording of paranormal activity…or nothing more than an impressive piece of amateur CGI?

Ye Olde Man and Scythe – Paranormal Footage

Ye Olde Man and Scythe - Paranormal Footage

I came across this interesting paranormal footage whilst doing my ‘spooky rounds’ over the weekend – I often spend my Sundays planning out what content I am going to post to our ‘Mysteries network’ over the coming week.

The footage in question was taken at the Ye Olde Man and Scythe pub in Bolton, UK. It is actually the 4th oldest pub in Britain that dates as far back as 1251.

I usually opt to include paranormal footage in the Real Paranormal Video Footage section of the site, but I thought this would make an interesting post to start the week off!

Take a look for yourself and see what you think…


Paranormal Activity At Ye Olde Man and Scythe

The paranormal footage was first discovered by pub manager Tony Dooley one Friday morning. As he opened up the bar area he accidentally started wading through broken glass on the floor.

He immediately thought the premises had been burgled the night before so he rushed over to the CCTV system to find out who was behind the break in.

Tony watched the footage in horror as a flickering figure appeared behind the bar area – then without warning, the footage suddenly cut off at exactly  6:18 am.


James Stanley

The Ye Olde Man and Scythe pub, which dates from 1251, is reportedly haunted by the ghost of James Stanley, the seventh Earl of Derby.

Stanley was a royalist, whose family originally owned the inn. Reports suggest that he actually spent the last few hours of his life in the pub before he was escorted to his execution – he was beheaded in 1651 toward the end of the Civil War.

A antique chair still sits in the pub, and legend has it that this was the chair he (Stanley) sat in as he awaited his fate at the hands of the executioner.

Many locals and paranormal enthusiasts believe that this chair has somehow managed to keep the spirit of Stanley within the walls of the old pub.


Stanley’s Not Alone…

During the Bolton Massacre in 1644, hundreds of people were slaughtered directly outside the pub. Many paranormal investigators have visited the pub and claim at least 25 of these slaughtered souls still haunt the premises.

Mr Dooley also claims that he has had numerous contacts with the spirit of an eight-year-old girl and a phantom dog at the pub.

Only a few weeks ago he said he was woken by what he thought was his girlfriend’s dog, Kallie, licking his bare foot that was sticking out of the bed sheets.

He got up to tell the dog off and realized that Kallie was actually sleeping on the bed next to him.

Tony is completely open-minded about the paranormal activity he has experienced at the pub and has invited numerous psychics and investigators over…to see what they could find.

He simply states that: “This is a well-known haunt in Bolton and people are quite receptive of it”
