Hello ATS community. There is a paranormal group I follow that just finished two separate investigations at McPike Mansion and posted it on Youtube. I think it has some pretty clear evidence of paranormal activity, and I was hoping to get your opinion. The first video is a bit long, but it does have some strange things in it. The second video uses one of those ghost talking devices, and gets some really sad things across it. I figured I'd share it with you all and see what you think of it.

The first video is a bit long, but it does have some strange things in it. The second video uses one of those ghost talking devices.

They're called spirit or ghost boxes. A controversial tool of study for this phenomenon.

I'm going to give these a gander.

One thing, you might want to add the video descriptions, some people might get all snooty about not having them up because they are longer videos. FYI

-additional thought-
The beginning was too drawn out, sheesh.

"They began by setting up an unmanned infrared we wait..." Made me chuckle a bit.

I was not a fan of the melodramatic presentation, it was very slow and hard to stay interested in the first video. The lack of narration I believe was the problem. Even some schmo talking would of made it way more interesting.

They seem pretty run of the mill as far as investigators go. I really wish people would change the way they speak to the entities they are searching for. It always sounds like they're talking to children. If these entities are actually us passed on, do you not think you would get annoyed by the way these people ask question?

I will post more when finished watching entirety, I just wanted to type this down whilst brewing in my mind.

Thanks for posting. I'm a little strapped for time right now but I will watch when I have time and get back to you then.

I know the first one is a bit drawn out. The guy who is the head of the group was just learning how to use film editing software, and this was his first real go at making his investigation into video. He figured out how to narrate by the second film.

@JRocks-- let me know when you have the time.

Some background about the leader/creator of these films (no, it's not me, I'm not big on going into places I know are actually haunted. Never know what will come home with you), is that he tries to go into places skeptical until he sees something that changes his mind about it. I know he is looking for honest feedback on it, and would appreciate any comments you have. He's not a member of this forum, but I can relay them to him, or better yet, you can comment on the youtube video.

Thank you all for your time and interest in checking this out.
