Hollywood has a decades-long history of glitz and glamor… and ghosts. From specters of singers to movie star phantoms to former presidents (stepping a little outside the realm of Hollywood there), here are 10 famous celebrity ghost sightings!
Did you really see that? Out of the corner of your eye - something quick, something dark. It kind of looked like… well, like a person. But when you turn your head, you see… nothing. Was it just your imagination? Now you second-guess yourself, thinking your mind was playing tricks on you. After all, there’s nobody there. It’s only shadows… right?
“In this copy I increased the contrast because the original was in a very low light setting. My mom was trying to take pictures of the sunset from her bungalow. That is a tree stump that it appears to be standing behind. And a chair to the right. My mom was about 5 feet from the tree stump when she took the picture. The tree stump was only about 2 feet tall. I will send you a second picture that she took with the figure absent from a slightly different angle. She was the only person on this private beach that extended out to the shoreline. To me, it looks like a young boy. To my 6 year old daughter it looks like a dragon with its mouth open lol. So to each their own! Oh, one observation I made, the tree stump has 3 “tiers” kinda like a cake. The middle tier becomes obstructed in the picture with the figure. Almost makes me think the apparition is in front of and not behind the tree stump. If it is in fact an apparition. Just a thought!”
Just what is it about woods and forests that makes them so beautiful and so eerie at the same time? When most people take a scenic hike through the woods, they don’t typically expect to come face to face with a shapeshifting, teleporting old witch in a cloak. But that’s exactly what our guest on Episode 125: The Shapeshifting Witch encountered while hiking around the isolated area of Dismal Falls in Transylvania County, North Carolina.
Who doesn’t love a good “mysterious videos that cannot be explained” compilation?! The Internet is basically an endless universe of unexplainable, unusual, and just plain weird video clips, but that doesn’t stop us from watching! From an alleged mythical humanoid caught on camera, to a haunted highway, to a burned out building with an unexpected inhabitant, here are 5 more mysterious videos to scrutinize and hypothesize:
So back in 2013, I lived in Kent, WA, a suburb of Seattle. I lived there with my two high school buddies (M & R) from UT and they were getting ready to move back home while I was planning to move into another apartment in the area. R and I had always been into paranormal activities, including exploring houses which were formerly scenes of horrific incidents or doing ouija boards in known haunted areas. M had grown up Mormon, and although he is no longer, "f***ing with the devil" as he called it, was still out of his fun time wheelhouse.
This incident occurred in '09 or '10 and at that time I was living in a small house in the oldest neighborhood in our town (all late 1800's/Turn-Of-The-Century type charm). Forgive the wordiness, but I feel it's necessary to include a little detail about my street for frame of reference. My house sat two houses from the corner and directly across the street from a small park. Right across the park from us sat my youngest son's best friend's house. It was a cute little place for a single mother with two boys and I never had any problems there, even though it was one of those neighborhoods where one block is cute as a button and the next can be a slum.

“My wife and three kids and I were in vacation last weekend in Eureka Springs Arkansas. We had to go visit the Crescent Hotel and do the ghost tour. Long story short, I caught a pic of what can only be described as a ghost cat. It was a ‘live’ pic on my iPhone. When playing the short clip that the live pics take you can actually see the ‘ghost’ run down some steps and appears to jump onto the arm of a sofa. It’s the craziest thing ever!“
History is marred by countless accounts of murderers who committed heinous acts and gruesome killings. Arguably some of the darkest crimes were the work of repeating offenders - serial killers who left their stain on the world over and over again with each horrifying act. Some of these criminals were caught and tried for their crimes, while others remained anonymous and at large. Among them all, there also seems to be a number of killers who continue their reign of terror, even after their own deaths.
The Confessionals Episode 112: Demons in the Desert features a scary encounter with a ghost monk. While it is a unique sighting, others have also witnessed strange apparitions of monks! Take a look at 6 photos of alleged ghost monks that tourists, a ghost hunter, and a photographer managed to catch on camera:
When you’re alone in the dark and hear an unexpected noise, you may secretly wonder whether you’re about be attacked by a serial killer or spooked by a creepy ghost. Most of the time, the errant sound turns out to be something ordinary, like the house settling or the cat throwing up (also a terrifying prospect).
