Ghosts And Ghouls Rating System
The Scooting Bowl
The Video: A child’s bowl scoots across a table by itself. The submitter says weird things happen in their home all the time, and that the moving bowl is the third paranormal incident caught on camera.
The Verdict: To me, this video isn’t all that creepy. It’s relatively simple to fake something like this, and the child also seems coached in some way, as if someone off camera is telling him where to put his toys and when to leave the shot. Do you agree?
Voice from a Ghost Box
The Video: Paranormal investigators ask a ghost box questions and get “quick and clear” answers.
The Verdict: I must admit I’m pretty skeptical of ghost boxes. However, a couple of the box’s answers do seem pretty clear. I’ve never tried a ghost box, or even attempted to record an EVP, but this video makes me want to give it a shot.
Voice from a Ghost Box, II
The Video: A different group of investigators record responses from a ghost box.
The Verdict: To me, the responses in this video seem like random noise. If I hadn’t read the subtitles I’d have no idea what the voices were trying to say.
Rage Against the Machine
The Video: A shadowy figure appears in a couple’s kitchen, attacks their microwave, and then abruptly disappears.
The Verdict: The video is interesting and makes me glad I don’t live at this residence. I’d be curious to know if other odd things go on at the house.
The Growling Ghost
The Video: A person exploring an empty house hears growling and maybe spots a ghost.
The Verdict: I’m suspicious of this video because the person who shot it used a weird filter and adjusted the sound in some odd way. The growls are creepy, but I don’t think they’re paranormal.
The Face in the Tent
The Video: A face appears in a child’s play tent.
The Verdict: I had to watch this video several times before I saw the face appear. How do people spot this stuff? My daughter has the same tent, by the way. Ikea!
Ghost on Camera?
The Video: A ghost appears?
The Verdict: I have no idea where the ghost is supposed to be. Maybe it’s invisible. Do you see it?
