Reader Submission: Old Man Bailey’s Ghost Light

moon at night
“I’ve had my fair share of sightings while growing up in the historic town of Bailey’s Prairie, TX. But the one that sticks out in my mind, and one I’ve made a ritual to tell every year at Halloween, is my run-in with Mr. Britt Bailey.

The story goes that if you drive down Hwy 36 between Angleton and West Columbia around midnight, you will see a glowing ball of light roaming around the prairie. And that, of course, is Old Man Bailey looking for the whiskey bottle that his loving wife refused to bury with him. I personally have seen Mr. Bailey’s light a dozen times while driving through the area. But one night was different.

It was a cold and foggy October night. And though I never made it a habit to be out after nightfall, this night brought circumstances out of my control. It was midnight, and I was driving in such fog that I couldn’t see a foot in front of me. Then out of nowhere, a deer darted out in front of my car. I slammed on the brakes and my car began to spin out of control. Round and round it went till it finally came to a stop.

The 6 Most Common Types of Ghosts on Video (15 Chilling Clips)

There are thousands of ghost video clips on the Net, featuring everything from blurry blips to full body apparitions. However, while the creepy clips may seem wildly different, they typically fall into one of six categories. With than in mind, here are the six most common types of ghosts on video, as well as 15 chilling examples.

The Apparition Ghost Video
The apparition is perhaps the most common type of ghost on video, not to mention the creepiest. The apparitions are usually white and wispy in appearance, though some are dark and shadowy. A video filmed in Gettysburg, PA shows what appears to be a transparent form appearing and reappearing in a field. An Oklahoma impound lot became famous for its alleged video of a woman killed in a car accident. A ghost video clip shot in a Japanese parking garage shows a mysterious figure slinking along the wall. Another video from Japan shows a ghostly figure leaping from a cliff!

The Poltergeist Ghost Video
The poltergeist appears in many ghostly videos, knocking things from shelves and moving objects around. A video from Stocky’s Pizza in Haughton, LA shows silverware flying across the kitchen, while a Blockbuster in Mexico can’t seem to keep movies on its shelves. A store in Texas has a similar problem. Countless videos on YouTube claim to show evidence of poltergeist activity.

The Child Ghost Video
Creepy children also frequently appear in so-called real ghost videos. A video from Mexico shows a ghost girl crying in a cemetery. When the person shooting the clip goes to investigate, he discovers that the girl’s eyes glow like a cat’s. A similar video features a crying child in a dark hallway. Creepy footage from Jamaica reportedly shows an 11-year-old boy being attacked by an invisible entity.

The Mysterious Knocks Ghost Video
Many ghost video clips recorded by paranormal investigation groups feature mysterious knocks and thuds. A video shot at the Lemp Mansion features a few strange sounds, as does this footage from The Sallie House. Popular ghost hunting shows like TAPS and Ghost Adventures also regularly capture so-called ghost knocks.

The Spook Lights Ghost Video
Strange orbs and streaks of light are also common in ghost videos. Many cities and towns claim spook lights plague the area, though critics say the lights are nothing more than reflections from passing cars. One video shows the infamous ghost light of Paulding, Michigan, while another clip features the mysterious spook light of Bragg Road, Texas. Light anomalies in cemeteries and haunted buildings also commonly appear in ghostly videos.

The Japanese Ghost Video
For whatever reason, Japanese ghost videos frequently feature creepy figures lurking in the background of people’s homes and neighborhoods. These extraordinarily creepy clips show everything from faces in windows to figures hiding under beds and in closets, though the humans in Japanese ghost video clips never seem to notice a ghostly presence. In my opinion, Japanese ghost videos are among the creepiest in the world, though I find it curious that similar videos don’t come out of Western countries. Why would our ghosts behave differently than ghosts from Japan?
