Halloween week is when we see the largest number of ghost-related news reports. It’s that time of year. By next week, we may find no news stories of note.
(Remember, click on any linked article title to see the actual news report. Most open in a new window or tab.)
First, this is one of the better media reports I’ve seen around Halloween. They collected some good EVP, on the spot, and some of the “ghost box” responses are very clear. Too often, responses via a ghost box (or Frank’s Box, or Shack Hack) are so garbled, I’m not convinced that anything is actually said. On the other hand — as I’ve witnessed, in real life — when it’s clear, it’s clear. Some of these responses are clear enough to be credible.
Even better, this team demonstrate that you don’t need to go ghost hunting at night. Daytime can be just as haunted as after dark.
Although Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., often gets the spotlight, there’s another cemetery bearing the same name hundreds of miles away that is seeing some attention thanks to the Halloween season. As CBS …
At the other extreme, I’m not sure which is sillier: The advice this guy says he was given, or how he describes his antics at the house. Either way, this isn’t even close to “ghost hunting.” Then again… well, it’s a Cracked article. Credibility is optional, and this writer opted-out. (If a house like that is real, it’s intriguing.)
I found a class on house healing via a flier off a car windshield. Now it’s time to put my hard work to good use.
In the hills just east of Hollywood, California, between million-dollar mansions and famous architectural landmarks, sits a crumbling two-story house no one has lived in since the murder/suicide that happened there in December of 1959. But it’s not quite accurate to call the house empty. Like a time capsule, it’s stayed untouched for five decades…
Everything I’m about to tell you in this story is true. This is a long story, so it will span more than one blog post. You might not want to read this story while you are alone or while sitting in the dark.
Kimberley South Africa is said to be the most haunted city in the world, and it certainly is a city with a remarkable and dark history...
I was prepared for this next video to be silly, but it’s not too bad. In fact, some of the information repeats exactly what I’ve said here at Hollow Hill. (And, remember, my articles at HollowHill.com are licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons license. So, I’m flattered if they used Hollow Hill as a resource… but it’s not as if I have a monopoly on this kind of information.)
If you aren’t afraid of no ghost – then you’re in good company. Pew Research has found shocking data in which the believe in mysticism has actually been rising in the past decade.
This next report isn’t exactly a ghost story, but Zak of Ghost Adventures is using EVP in a whole new way, moving fully into entertainment with it. Some people may object to the concept, but I think it’s a pretty clever use of his recordings.
Most know Zak Bagans as the host of the Travel Channel paranormal series, ‘Ghost Adventures,’ but he’s taking his expeditions a step further by teaming with…
I searched for some of Zak’s music clips to share but… well, the sound is not my style. Instead, I found a pretty good clip of him dancing.
And, speaking of mixing real ghosts with entertainment, it was only a matter of time before reports like this North Carolina story emerged…
The next news report includes a couple of good, haunted locations. Even better, that story led me to This Old House’s list of Haunted Historic Homes.
Why are hauntings so different? According to paranormalhaze.com, each individual person is unique in personality, experience, and countless other…
The following article is from Kent, England. Yes, their “ghost” video looks like an insect catching the light. I suggest examining the footage, frame by frame, to see what shows up in stills.
That doesn’t mean the site isn’t haunted. In fact, the reports of things being moved… someone should look into those. They have a more genuine ring than anything I’m seeing in the video.
Nevertheless, the visual effect in the video is different from what I usually see when people display orb videos that are usually insects. In fact, it’s a really nice effect.
A GHOSTLY figure has been spotted on cameras at an office in Ashford, Kent, leaving workers scared to be alone after haunting orb was recorded on CCTV.
In the next article, this Arizona site sounds like a great spot for an investigation.
Manager Robin Brekhus was skeptical about her Arizona hotel’s supernatural history until the day she went to the basement in search of candles during a power outage…
I found an intriguing video tour of the haunted hotel. It’s over 30 minutes long, and the lobby and lore of the hotel may be the best part. The intro didn’t impress me, — it’s a little over the top — but it’s worth sitting through that, to get to the history and tour of the lobby. The rest of the presentation is very professional.
(Note: The wiring seen in one corridor might explain why the cats don’t like it there.)
On a haunted hotel theme, here’s another list that may provide some good investigation sites, and interesting ghost stories.
From sightings of the Lady in Red who roams The Fairmont Hotel inVancouver, and giggling ghostly girls at Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, N.Y., to a former whaling captain …
And, it wouldn’t be Halloween week without a good, classic “ghost story” for those who appreciate folklore.
The center’s director Judy Byers says West Virginia ghost stories have usually three types of ghosts: a helpful one who comes back to help a loved one; a revengeful ghost, who wants to seek justice for a wrong; and a …
