Ok, first off, I'd like to explain something. This is my first ever time going out and actively seeking the paranormal. Usually, it just
But here's the story.
My friend John and I have heard a story about a house not too far away from us which is supposedly haunted. The backstory is as follows: About 40
years ago, there lived a family in the house. A mother, father and daughter. One day, the mother was at the market, the father was busy with roof
repairs and the daughter was running around outside playing. Not to far away from the yard is a deep water well. (At this time, plumbing was a luxury
in Norway, especially in this area.)
Well, story has it that the girl fell in the well, and unfortunately drowned. The mother, so distraught found her life unlivable. She took suicide
by jumping in front of a passing train downtown. (About 20 minutes walk away.) The father, having lost his child, and now his remaining strength, his
wife, turns to the bottle for comfort. Unfortunately, it comforts him too much and he ends up dying by liver failure.
The house has been empty since then, and nearly untouched, although in a state of disrepair.
Now that you have the background story, let me tell you our story which takes place last night, 11pm (+01). My friends sister who has been there once
before asked John if it was OK if we left at 11 since she was working late. Hence our leaving at this hour, something John and I would have preferred
Her, her boyfriend, John, his fiance and I meet up and take his car out to this house. The grounds around the house is now a camping area. However,
the house itself is hidden past a slew of trees and bushes. We make it there a little past 11pm, since its only about a ten minute drive away. Since
it's summer, it stays light outside long into the night. However, a storm was heading in making for an eerie experience.
John, his fiance and I are not too keen on the idea of entering the unlocked house, which would be trespassing after all. So we linger outside and
take a few photos. Johns sister and her boyfriend decide to venture inside. The door was unlocked and slightly open. They wander inside, look
around and come back out. The boyfriend to Johns sister says he'd like to visit the upstairs, and asks John if he can bring his camera/camcorder
(which does 750p resolution btw) with him. John agrees.
The boyfriend (I can't remember his name, sorry.) goes inside and heads upstairs. It gets quiet for about five, six minutes. We hear a very loud
"SLAM!" and then hear running/falling down the stairs. All of a sudden, the boyfriend is now outside and visibly shaken. He says in Norwegian,
"I'm serious guys, a door slammed shut upstairs! I got so scared I fell down the stairs!"
After an inspection of the outside of the house, the boyfriend started to feel adventurous again. He wanted to go back inside and see if he could get
more on the camera. He was standing in the door way looking at us, when I see a black(ish) shadow move inside. That's when I had had enough and
decided to move on out with or without the group.
Now here comes the interesting part, we are fortunate to have the film of his ventures upstairs. It's a 207mb quicktime video which I'm currently
converting to AVI so I can upload it to youtube tomorrow. (It's 3:38am here now, so doubt I'll do much more tonight.)
However, I'll add the pictures so you yourself can have a look.
Keep an eye out tomorrow for a youtube link in this thread.
Thanks for reading!
The boyfriend has a picture of a face in a window on his cellphone. I'll see if he'd send me a copy and I'll add it.
Here's the link to the pictures from John's camcorder.
We'll try to get some more during the daytime.
Will try to verify the story of the house and report back if true/untrue.
