The Bassa Villa Hotel Poltergeist

The Bassa Villa Hotel Poltergeist

I’m always intrigued by modern-day reports of poltergeist activity due to the amount of technology we have at hand to ‘capture’ the incidents. Unfortunately, this technology can go both ways…

Technology gives us the power to capture paranormal activity but at the same time it also gives us the power to create hoaxes.

When I first came across the case of the Bassa Villa Hotel poltergeist online, it really did capture my attention…but something stuck out like a sore thumb in the video footage…and I just couldn’t shake it’s effect.

Anyway, watch the video first and see if you notice what I noticed on first viewing…


The Bassa Villa Hotel Poltergeist Footage

The hotel owner, Nick Bevon, arrived at work one morning (in Bridgnorth, Shropshire) to find shards of glass all over his pub/bar room floor. He quickly turned on his CCTV system to see what had taken place in his property the night before.

He was half expecting to see a group of youths messing about in the bar area but nothing prepared him for what came next.

He watched in awe as individual glasses seemed to move on their own in the dark, late at night. Nobody was in the bar – there was no evidence of anyone breaking in!

Nick reviewed the video footage once again and took note that the incident happened at 1:43am – a long time after the last staff member had left after clearing up the bar area. He also checked the other CCTV camera angles out and ended up with the same spooky footage.

When interviewed Nick went on to explain that the Bassa Villa Hotel was frequently linked with paranormal reports, even before this poltergeist footage was recorded. He claimed that his wrist had been grabbed by an unseen entity on numerous occasions and had even witnessed strange shadow figures walking across the bar room then disappearing.

He links the paranormal activity with a rumour that in the past, two children had been buried in the cellar area of the hotel (many, many, decades ago…one presumes?).


Fact or Fiction?

Okay, back to the video and the main gripe I have with this paranormal report…

Now, before I go any further, I should really point out that I am not calling ‘hoax’ here in any way, shape or form. It’s just that I noticed something in the video that set alarm bells ringing in my head.

Near the start of the footage, above the bar surface where the glasses start moving you can see a number of chalk boards. Notice what’s written in chalk on the board that is directly above the glasses…

“Hi, Thanks For Looking”

Now, this could be a complete coincidence…or it could be someone’s attempt at sarcastic humour?

It may be completely innocent, but I don’t know why this statement would be set above a bar area like this…it just doesn’t seem to fit?

What do you think?

The Beauport Incident – Signs of Poltergeist Activity

The Beauport Incident - Signs of Poltergeist Activity

During a recent research trip through the archives of YouTube we came across an incident that seemed to indicate signs of poltergeist activity.

This particular report originates from Beauport, Quebec, back in 1989…and we hadn’t heard of it before!

(Note: The short documentary ‘The Beauport Phenomenon’ is included at the bottom of this article).


Nancy

One August morning in 1989, teenager Nancy slept comfortably in her home on 3566 Mgr Gauthier street when suddenly she was awoken by a loud thunderous bang.

She sat straight up in bed but soon thought the sound had been nothing more than an event in her dream. She peacefully laid back down to resume her early morning doze…

The bang came again…much louder this time!

She got out of bed and noticed a strange hole in her bedroom wall, as she peered into it the banging returned.

Nancy and every other resident of the apartment block evacuated the building onto the street outside.


New Signs of Poltergeist Activity

Over the next couple of weeks the residents of the apartment complex began to hear the same loud banging noise centered in their own apartments.

A group meeting of the families who lived in the complex resulted in the landlord being contacted directly about the strange events.

The baffled landlord decided to call in a team of local geologists and gas technicians in an attempt to get to the root of the loud banging problem.

Both sets of professionals left the building as confused as when they went in – there was no fault to be found in the apartment complex that could cause such a loud noise.


Psychokinetic Forces at Play

Local news and media soon got a hold of the story and quickly labeled it a ‘poltergeist’ case.

One particular news crew decided to film the goings on inside the building…they were shocked by what they actually caught during their live interview.

Watch the video below and pay close attention to the section of the video that runs from the 1 minute, 6 second mark…
