Ghostly apparition photobombs fishermans catch

THERE are spooky goings-on after the unexpected appearance of a ghostly apparition in a pond with a “grim past”.
Angler Wayne Foulkes was fishing at Ponciau Pool on May 9 when he landed one of the biggest carp in the water.
He was so pleased with his catch that he took a picture of the proud moment with the fish.
But when he looked back at the image he was shocked to see the appearance of a ‘face’ in an orange glow in the dark watery background.

Fisherman and villagers in Ponciau are at a loss as to how the face, which resembles a ghoulish orange goblin peeking over Mr Foulkes’ left shoulder, came to be there. 
But Mr Foulkes said many believe it really could be a spirit.
The 34-year-old said: ”It’s pretty scary isn’t it?
“There’s some history to the pool, a couple of people have passed away there, and its only adds to the story – people really believe it’s a spirit.”

The movie Poltergeist is inspired by true events

It's the creepy cult horror film that terrified cinema-goers in the Eighties and now Poltergeist is due to scare a whole new generation as the remake hits the big screen tonight.

But very few of today's fans will know the petrifying real life events that inspired the film - or the curse surrounding it.

Steven Spielberg's 1982 film sees an ordinary family tormented by an evil apparition which later takes the youngest daughter Carol Anne into another realm. The reboot follows a similar format.

But the reality behind the fiction is equally as frightening. The film is loosely based on events at a house on Long Island, New York, where a family called the Hermann's were plagued by a so-called poltergeist.

Between February and March 1958, bottle tops and lids inexplicably popped, ornaments flew around the house, a heavy bookshelf mysteriously fell over and a Virgin Mary figure soared through the air and struck a mirror 12ft away.

A police officer came to investigate but was almost hit by a flying globe while a British press photographer who went to cover the story witnessed his flashbulbs lift off a table.

A priest was called and ministers from all sorts of faiths conducted rituals on the front lawn but still the strange happenings went on as parents James and Lucille and their two children Lucille jnr, 13, and James jnr, 12, became increasingly scared.

Experts confirmed the house was structurally sound, the fire brigade checked water levels in an old well and equipment set up in the basement confirmed there were no land vibrations. It was a mystery.

Pennsylvania keeps brewing beers and ghosts

Hundreds of German immigrants opened breweries in their American communities during the 19th century. In many cases, the brewmaster and his family lived in a hotel or boardinghouse beside the brewery and served meals to travelers.

Some famous beer brands started this way. Do the names Coors, Miller and Busch ring a bell?
Most brewers disappeared during Prohibition or modernization, rendering the small-town hotel/brewery business model obsolete. Only one such enterprise remains in America, and it has been fascinating visitors for decades: Bube's Brewery, 102 N. Market St., Mount Joy.

"In a modern way we're trying to make this work. I think this is neat," Allen said. "They brewed beer; we're brewing beer. They had a restaurant license; we have a restaurant license. They had a hotel license; we have a hotel license."

About two dozen people -- primarily employees -- have reported seeing a ghost on the premises. The most common sighting is a young woman that is believed to be the granddaughter of Alois Bube, according to Allen.

The hosts of the popular "Ghost Hunters" show on the SyFy Network spent a few days at Bube's in 2012 and confirmed that paranormal activity exists. Allen hasn't seen anything unusual, but he's keeping an open mind.

"If 25-30 people have seen a ghost, and it fits the general description -- but I haven't seen it -- I've got to think something's going on," he said.

"Ghost hunters" arrested for church break-in. (video)

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Four ghost hunters are facing felony charges for breaking into an historic church in Litchfield, Minnesota.

The Ness Church has been the target of vandals for years. Ghost hunters have posted YouTube videos of what they say are “confirmed sightings” of ghosts at the site. One video from another Minnesotan in 2012 shows ghost hunters near the historic church:

Church board members say there are no ghosts here — just buildings and a burial site that played a key role in an infamous chapter in Minnesota history.

On Sunday at 1:53 a.m., Meeker County deputies responded to a burglary alarm at Ness Church, located on the 24000 block of 580th Avenue, according to the county sheriff’s office. While en route, deputies observed a vehicle leaving the area. The deputies then stopped the car and arrested its four occupants in connection to the church crime.

The suspects have been identified as 23-year-old Kyle Huber, of Victoria; 23-year-old Todd Suurmeyer of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; 25-year-old Joseph Porter of Sioux Falls and 24-year-old Brittani Roberts, of Sioux Falls. After their arrest, the suspects were taken to the Meeker County Jail on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage to property.

The suspects are accused of gaining access to the church by breaking several of its windows. They also smashed part of a monument that marks where the first five of an eventual 490 victims of the 1862 Sioux uprising were buried in a hurry. A window of an out building was also broken. An investigation is now determining the full extent of the damage and if there were items taken from the church.

Ghost photo-bombed a family photo at creepy castle

Spooked dad Nurul Islam, 37, of Chapel Allerton, was on a day out with his family at the popular park when he snapped this photo of his niece and nephew, Mayrian Islam, 11, and Ryhan Kaliq, seven, in front of the castle ruins.

But when he got home and looked again at the picture, he spotted what seems to be a ghostly apparition hovering in the background. Nurul said: “We were taking lots of pictures. Because people were standing on the steps and walking about, we waited for them to move on before we took a picture.

“We waited and waited for a clear point when no-one was there as they wanted to hold their hands together. That’s why we’re sure there was no-one there.

“I didn’t think anything of it and took a few more. Then we got home and looked at the photos and saw this thing at the back of it that wasn’t there before.

“My sister said ‘Oh my God it’s a ghost’. I’ve started to think it might be. There was definitely no-one there when I took the picture.”

7 Mysterious Urban Legends of India

India has its fair share of stories that may not have a logical explanation but continue to arouse our curiosity to this day. These are similar to the existence of the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland and the Yeti in the Tibetan Himalayas, both of which people have not been able to explain. A few claim to have experienced them, while others think of different theories to justify their existence. Here are some legends that have some Indians convinced that the supernatural works in the most mysterious of ways.

1. Kuldhara

kuldharaKuldhara village in Rajasthan was abandoned overnight leaving behind an entire village of crumbling homes and buildings. Legend has it that the ruler of the region took a keen interest in the daughter of the subjugated village chief, and to escape humiliation the entire village of 1500 disappeared overnight. It is said the village chief cursed the abandoned village, in a way that anyone who tried to inhabit it would die. Even today, visiting the village is only something the brave would try and staying the night is at one's own risk.
Members of the Paranormal Society of Delhi stayed the night and reported supernatural happenings such unexplained moving shadows, footprints, noises and touching of members.

2. Muhnochwa

muhnochwaIn 2002, the rural areas of Uttar Pradesh were in panic about a strange creature that swept down like a miniature UFO beaming red and green lights. The creature was described as hawk-like, with metal claws that aimed at scratching victim faces, leaving them writhing with pain. Many people were so terrified that temples held sermons to ward away evil spirits while some villagers stayed up all night around bonfires with guns and water canons.
The hype gradually died down when police went all out to convince people that the existence of this creature was a rumour and that the victims who were affected were probably injured by an unexplained force of nature.

3. Monkey Man

monkey manNope, he's not a superhero, but what Delhi residents described as a hairy creature about 5 feet tall with shining red eyes, and a helmet. It was seen jumping from building to building but was just described as mass hysteria. The film Delhi 6, starring Abhishek Bacchan, centres around the appearance of the creature in Old Delhi.

Mysterious unexplained lights spotted over San Diego (video)

Did you see those mysterious lights southwest of San Diego on Tuesday night ? (April 28, 2015)

A viewer sent us several photos he took, capturing a string of multicolored lights in the sky above San Diego.

The viewer, Larry Fox, said the lights that appeared to be red, blue and green kept flashing and changing colors from his vantage point in Del Cerro.

"It looked like a strobe light," he said.

Fox said he was out in his backyard when he saw the strange lights southwest of the Coronado Bridge. He didn't think it was a plane or even a drone because it was stationary.

"It was a series of flashing lights," he said. "If it was a plane, it would have moved."

A NBC 7 reporter and photographer also spotted the strange lights from San Ysidro as they were covering an unrelated story on Tuesday night.

A number of folks also called us here at NBC 7, reporting the same thing.

Turn your home into a Haunted House (video)

You're home alone. It's the dead of night and all of the lights are off; you creep down the hallway with one hand dragging along the wall, your phone serving as a makeshift flashlight. You hear a young girl's voice whisper from the bedroom in front of you and the hair on the back of your neck stands up straight. You pause. Your heart pounds. A dull ringing assaults your ears. You creep forward, holding the phone higher, when suddenly -- a high-pitched shriek as your phone's light starts rapidly flashing and a deformed, undead monster barrels down the hallway directly toward you. You drop your phone. Game over.

That's basically the premise of Night Terrors, an in-development, augmented reality game for mobile devices that maps out the entirety of your house and fills it with terrifying creatures, turning a home into a real-life survival-horror game. It's currently looking for $70,000 on Indiegogo -- developers say they've already created a system that understands spatial elements such as walls and complex floorplans, and they're using physical special effects rather than CGI. It sounds like an innovative and truly horrifying project, even as its narrative plays off of an overused gaming conceit: Save the girl and be the hero. That's so close to being cliche, it's scary.

"Ghost doctor" caught on camera lurking in a derelict hospital

A terrified ghost hunter probing a 'haunted' derelict hospital was horrified to see the spectral figure of a doctor lurking in one of her pics.

Jamie-Leigh Brown, 21, was exploring the empty corridors of St Thomas's Hospital, a former Victorian workhouse, in Stockport, when she took eerie photo.

The decorator was so unnerved by spooky footsteps above them - even though the building has no working stairs - that she and her team of amateur ghost-busters didn't check the image at the time.

The paranormal enthusiasts ran from the building in terror, but when Ms brown developed the photo later she found a chilling surprise - a spectral doctor lurking in the background.

She said to The Sun: "It freaked me out.

"It's standing in a lift shaft. It's really creepy to think my friend was just heading towards the area where the ghost was.
