I am usually very quick to write off "ghost sightings" as simple paradolia... but some of these videos are just... wow.
While some are very obviously CGI, others are not so easy to write off. I'll be interested to see the responses as to who thinks which videos are real
or fake. Regardless of your opinion, all of the footage is impressive.
YouTube is full of "This is totally real, guys" ghost videos, and if you don't spend at least one night around Halloween browsing through a bunch
of them, you're not truly getting into the spirit of the holiday. Here are what we consider the most eerily convincing videos in the genre.*
*Note: Science has found zero empirical evidence for the existence of ghosts, aliens, demons or any other supernatural creatures, and these videos
will surely not fool an expert in video fakery. Unless he or she watches them alone, late at night, in the dark. Then they become very
#6: The Levitating Girl
A Russian man is out filming his dog in the woods, waiting for something quantifiably adorable to happen. Maybe the dog was supposed to do a
backflip or something. Instead, he runs off, having apparently sensed black magic in the trees. The cameraman chases after him and stumbles across
these two girls and holy sh*t, one of them is flying...
#5: The Headless Ghost
In this video, we have four kids wandering around looking for a ghost in an abandoned school in Iraq (one description says India, but since
they're speaking Arabic we'll go with Iraq). The boys are kind of wandering aimlessly through stairwells and empty classrooms for a solid two minutes,
which would arouse suspicion under our "Why is anyone filming this?" rule if not for the fact that we know they are explicitly waiting for the lights
to suddenly dim and for a hallway full of disembodied 19th century clothes to start doing the Monster Mash. That doesn't happen. What happens is much
A headless ghost appears right in front of them. You literally see it materialize on camera -- of all the entries on this list, this is the one you
absolutely have to watch. Seriously, your mind will be blown like Eric Stoltz's penis in The Rules of Attraction. As they swing the camera lazily
through the room, the ghost just walks very purposefully toward them like it's delivering a pizza, while a long, low moan emanates from its phantom
# 4: The Jakarta Angel
The light from the "angel" has a strange weight to it -- you can see it pulse outward at the bottom as it suddenly gains mass after striking the
ground. Anyway, maybe a Pixar animator got bored and threw this together just to mess with people. After contacting all of his or her friends in
Jakarta, Indonesia, to stage it. Including, of course, his or her friends with access to the security footage of that particular public square.
The alternative is that a seraph chose to rocket all the way down to Earth for, like, 2 damn seconds in front of what appears to be a laundromat.
Maybe someone carelessly dropped one of those limited-edition 50 State Quarters, and it really needed Wyoming to complete its collection.
# 3: The Fallen Angel of Catalonia
If you freeze-frame it, you can see that while the thing may be humanoid in appearance, its eyes are badly sunken in, its head and face seem
overly large (and awfully pale), and its pupils catch every ounce of the virtually nonexistent light coming from the camera. So, it's either a
seriously haggard meth addict with Riddick-like powers who wandered out into the woods of Spain to scream at the talking scorpions living beneath his
fingernails, or it's someone in heavy monster makeup. Most likely, it's the latter and the whole thing was staged by a couple of friends wanting to
either get on the news or become Internet famous. It's not even that great of a costu- ... wait, what are those, stumps on its back?
# 2: The Disneyland Ghost
It's easier to see in motion, but that's the figure appearing on two cameras simultaneously, which means it pretty much has to be something that
is actually on the video. In other words, we have to stand back in awe, if not at the existence of Disneyland ghosts, but at whoever went through the
#load of time and effort this took.
It would (presumably) have to be CGI that was doctored directly onto the security tapes and then filmed on a separate camcorder during playback. Maybe
the guard stole four separate tapes of footage, took them home to add the effects on each one and then brought them back to the park to play them on
the security bank in perfect sync without anybody noticing. After all, it's not Air Force One, it's Disneyland. How hardcore could security possibly
get? Well, they do have four cameras monitoring a single walkway...
# 1: The Hand Demon
When the horror starts, it's anything but subtle. And by that we mean that when the cameraman gets to the bedroom, everything becomes a Tool
video. He switches on a flashlight as bizarre, pale-grey arms begin growing down from the ceiling. First it's just a few, but soon it's a dozen or
The fact that this is CGI is as obvious as the crap in our pants that appeared after watching it. But that's some goddamned well-made CGI -- see how
the light is reflecting off of the skin of the arms?

As for the OP,I'm pretty sure at one time or another they've all been debunked.Some of them here,namely #6 and #4. I'm sure a few others have too,I'll
have to look around and see though.And no offense,but I think it's safe to say that #1 is entirely fake.

Yes you did so I won't complain! & it's getting more attention anyways.
The levitating girl one is cool too!
I know others say the Jakarta angel is CGI, but I'm still not convinced. If it is it's some damn good CGI, I however would like to believe its real,
I love videos like these close to Halloween!!
