Flying Ghost Caught On Tape In Indonesian Jungle

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

An Indonesian Paranormal TV show is touting the above video as the real deal. This ghost video starts off looking like it’s going to be incredibly lame, with a person in a white gown slowly crossing the screen. Then suddenly with no explanation the figure takes to the sky, jumping to a tree before mysteriously exiting via the top edge of the frame. Why the cameraman didn’t follow eagerly with his lens? We don’t know.

“100% Proof” of Ghosts Caught on Tape

Latest Ghost Image: Jenner Museum

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009


Above is a photo snapped of a purported apparition at the Jenner Museum in Gloucester, England. It was taken by BBC journalist Chris Sandys. Edward Jenner is the man who pioneered the smallpox vaccine and the museum that bares his name has been claimed to be haunted for years.

It seems convenient that so much press attention has been given to the ghosts in the attic at Jenner Museum, especially because they have a new exhibition called ‘Ghosts in the Attic’: From Smallpox to MMR. But the proprietors of the museum swear that the title is metaphorical and they did not have a hand in any sort of publicity stunt.

We at Weirdthings believe the photo above could be of….anything.

Ghost or Intruder?

Monday, May 18th, 2009

Penn Bullock Reports:

It’s a scene straight out of a horror movie. A little boy tells his soccer mom that he saw a ghost last night in his room, and that the ghost also visited his little sister. The suburbs are safe, the mother thinks, and my son was having a bad dream. Two weeks later, at 2 a.m. she stumbles on a man next to her bed, lying on the floor, making not a peep. He’s wearing all black and escapes like a shadow “‘without saying a word.” There’s an unknown lurker in Fishers, Indiana, and he likes to visit children in their sleep. Does he sound like the boogeyman?

A similar drama transpired in New York City in 1927. Two little boys were playing in an apartment building hall. When their parents came to collect them, both boys had disappeared. One of them was found minutes later on the roof of the building. He told the adults that the other boy had been taken by “the boogeyman.” The boogeyman was Albert Fish, the most gruesome child rapist/serial killer in American history. Nobody believed the boy about the boogeyman until it was too late.

Here’s a question: would you rather find a real ghost or a black-clad intruder in your house?

American Idol Mansion Haunted?

Friday, May 8th, 2009


American Idol Contestant Allison Iraheta was the latest to be ousted. The judges blamed her performance, but could ghosts keeping her up at night be to blame?

A few days ago Allison claimed that the spirit of a previous inhabitant of the American Idol Mansion had been visiting her in the night, growling in her boudoir and making loud banging noises.

The residents of the house have lovingly dubbed the specter “Phyllis”. Other females that have since left the mansion claim to have caught sight of the ghost themselves, claiming that Phyllis appears as a white shadow. Funny though, It seems Phyllis doesn’t the like the men of the house, because no males in the idol crew have yet to report interaction with the ghost.

Salma Hayek’s Daughter Sees Dead People

Monday, May 4th, 2009


Salma Hayek believes her 16-month old daughter Valentina sees ghosts. This according to Salma, who delivered the terrifyingly cute news on ‘The Rachel Ray Show’:

“Last night [Valentina] saw a ghost. I’m convinced. She woke up and her eyes were open. And she’s looking at one specific point and she’s going, ‘No no no no, au revoir,’ which means goodbye in French. And she’s looking at someone, but there’s no one there. I was so scared, and I’m like, ‘Yes, au revoir, whoever you are, get out!’ And then she started saying it in English, ‘Bye bye, bye bye!’…I guess she was trying in different languages to see what nationality this ghost was to go away. It was terrifying!”

Yes Salma, the only possible explanation for a baby babbling basic phrases while staring off into space is that she’s speaking to a ghost. Modern science just hasn’t figured out how to detect the phenomena that occurs daily throughout the world. And Salma thinks that Tom Cruise is ridiculous. He’d probably tell her that the trilingual toddler is attempting to communicate with her invisible body thetan for the first time.

Michael Jackson Refuses to Rent Haunted Mansion

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009


Our beloved Michael Jackson is making his re-debut into the world of pop in London in July. Understandably, Jacko is concerned about ghosts and spirits possibly throwing his game off in the days leading up to his big comeback. So he recently pulled out of a deal to rent an 18th Century Foxbury Mansion in Kent because it is reportedly haunted. A video of the mansion and its haunted past made by Jackson’s aides prompted him to cancel his rental that he had already sunk nearly a million pounds into. But hey, when you don’t want ghosts to scare the children, what else are you going to do? Strange, Jackson looks positively thrilled with ghosts and ghouls in the above photo.

Warwick Castle Too Haunted for Construction Workers

Thursday, April 16th, 2009


Workers constructing a Dungeon Attraction at historic Warwick Castle were put off there work by Site Manager Paul Woodfield’s encounters with a ghost. Claiming to have seen a figure of a slender man wandering the grounds, the head of the project ordered his workers to halt construction until the ghostly apparitions could be explained. These reported ghost sightings come during efforts to build a tourist attraction that would include actor’s dressing up as ghosts and the undead to frighten visitors in the “Torture Chamber”. Wait a minute….construction site, spooky castle, unexplained hauntings, actors dressed like ghosts….this sounds suspiciously like an episode of Scooby-Doo.

Ghost Nun Offers Interior Decorating Advice

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009


The Ghost of a pregnant, South African Nun, that haunts a house in Bathurst, has been doling out interior design tips to her earthly hosts. Marilyn Michau, the owner of the home, was reportedly dropping her daughter off for a consultation with a local medium, when the medium approached her and told her that she had a message from the nun. Michau, who had noticed strange and haunting anomalies around her house was not surprised that the nun was trying to communicate with her. According to Michau:

She [the nun speaking through the medium] described the house exactly and asked me to renovate and restore it to its former glory particularly by making the upstairs windows into doors again.”

Michau followed the nun’s advice, though here at WeirdThings, we would be hesitant to accept any fashion advice from a nun. The pregnant nun was said to have offed herself when her illicit affair with a local man was discovered. We’d like to think she would have considered the immaculate conception defense first, but without her sacrifice Michau’s house wouldn’t look nearly as nifty.

When the ghost hunting going gets tough, it’s time to bring in the big guns. The big guns being the multi-terrain camera or MTC, designed specifically for paranormal investigation. We found an article about it over at Though our mortal movements are limited by pesky obstacles, like walls and floors, ghosts have no such limitations and are able to move freely unhampered by solid objects. Until now, ghost hunters had to give up on their investigations when entities they claimed to be chasing went under houses or in to crawlspaces or attics. Now when a ghost you’re hunting goes where a human can’t follow, you can wheel out this baby and continue the chase.
