Actress Jessica Chastain, whose credits include films such as The Help and Zero Dark Thirty, encountered a ghost while filming her most recently released work: The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
While staying in a house near where the film was being made in London, Chastain believes she made contact with a ghost, one that seems to like to play with electricity and has a tendency to keep the living residents of the house awake at night.
Chastain spoke about her paranormal experience while a guest on The Late Late Show With James Corden:
A school in Kelantan, Malaysia was shut down last week after students and staff reported the presence of a ‘Djinn’ or ghost.
SKM Pengkalan Chepa 2 school has now reopened after a few exorcisms by holy men and a witch doctor.
The ghost was caught on a camera phone by a student at SKM Pengkalan and was posted to Twitter under the screen name @PhilipGolingai.
The reason for the haunting has been lain at the feet of an interesting party…the children who attend the school.
The photos were taken on two separate dates by two different photographers in different parts of Pen-Y-Lan Hall and it’s grounds but they appear to show the eerie faces of a ghost boy and a ghost girl.
At first glance, the tale of the alleged haunting of a three level Victorian home at the end of a dead end street in Nyack, New York was not that unusual as far as a ‘usual’ haunting goes.
Strange noises and phantom voices, apparitions appearing near bedsides and objects moving around, seemingly of their own accord.
Most haunted houses however, are not featured in a widely circulated publication like Reader’s Digest, which this one was, but that is not this house’s claim to paranormal fame.
This house has been declared legally haunted by a New York State Supreme Court!
The Daily Mirror recently published a photograph taken by one Adam Smith, who walking past the Brecon and Radnor Lunatic Asylum, which is located in Wales.
The asylum opened in 1903 and was also where German prisoners were kept after capture during World War Two. The site has been fully closed since 1999.
Smith was recently walking by the abandoned structure when he snapped a photo which to show a terrifying face in an upper window of the building.
We previously reported on a study that involved both the United States and the U.K. that stated that half of those surveyed in both regions believed in ghosts and the paranormal.
Recently a similar analysis has arisen that focuses on British people that identify as part of the Christian religion and the results while not too shocking do show a change in the belief systems in the Western world.
The analysis was published on YouGov on March 26th and focused on YouGov profiles of twelve-thousand users who identify with the Christian religion and a control group of Thirty-nine-thousand British subjects to represent the overall population.
Results are rather interesting as there seems to be in the data a definite push away from traditional religion as well as showing a sample of how the British feel about ghosts and other paranormal activity, in relation to one of the largest Western faiths.
The Daily Post recently published an article online which tells the tale of Paul Rowland, a paranormal investigator who seems to have been witness to many strange events going on at Plas Teg, a Jacobean house in Pontblyddyn, Wales.
In the past Rowland claims to have captured the images of two ghost children on the infamous property which has been the subject of much exposure and debate including being featured on Extreme Ghost Stories and Most Haunted, including their Halloween event in 2007.
Plas Teg even had a visit from the pop group Girls Aloud in 2006 for the television special Ghost Hunting With…Girls Aloud.
Although Plas Teg is considered one of the most haunted locations in Wales, if not the world, recently it added another notch on it’s paranormal belt when Rowland claimed to have captured the audio of a barking ghost dog during a seance held at Plas Teg.
The Daily Star reported that four-hundred and sixteen people called Manchester’s emergency ‘999’ phone line to reports ghost sightings in the last five years.
Although it only gave a brief glimpse into the calls themselves they are jam packed with spirits from homicidal ghosts, to a picture of a little ghost girl and a woman who claimed someone turned her son into a witch.
Sounds more like 666 then 999 to me.
In the Pall Mall area of Liverpool, several WW2 era bombs were found in an abandoned factory while demolition makes way for the North Point renovation project.
Although that story is interesting enough in its own right, an urban explorer who goes by the name of Toc66 later went into the disused factory before it was demolished and snapped a series of pictures, which were later published online by the Liverpool Echo.
Echo readers online began to comment that besides getting a glimpse at history and a location that was also recently in the local news, they could see objects of a more ghostly origin as well.
Facebook user Randy Topacio posted some interesting pictures to his account on March 10th of this year while in Intramuros, a historical district in Manila, Philippines. Besides being the former capital when the area was part of the Spanish Empire, it also is known as the walled city, due to the defense walls built in the 16th century.
Intramuros is actually Spanish for ‘within the walls.’
Topacio was standing on one of these walls when he took a series of interesting photographs he speculates could actually be images of the ghosts of a Spanish soldier and a group of nuns.
