Angry Ghost Caught On TV?

Angry Ghost Caught On TV?

Televisions crews, psychics and paranormal investigators have been flocking to a store in Gloucester, England, that seems to have video proof of the existence of ghosts.

After finding the store a mess one morning staff at Poundstretcher on Eastgate Street examined CCTV footage of the night before.

What shocked them was the sight of a ghostly figure of a Victorian woman pushing a whole pallet of goods to the ground.

A bit of research shows that the shop stands on the site of an old Theatre - The Theatre Royal, later known as The Palace. It was first opened in 1791 and closed in 1922.

There have been previous stories of a haunting in the building. One such tale tells of a young woman who, it's said, took her own life, and was found hanging from a piece of theatre equipment beneath the stage.

It's the ghost of this poor woman who staff claim to have captured on camera.

The deputy manageress of Poundstretcher, Sue Cooper, told us it's not the first time she's come into close contact with the apparition. She said, "You can often feel her presence, sometimes you can feel an icy cold. You can feel a gagging or choking, especially downstairs in the cellar."

There are links for the video and the audio interview of the Store Manager. I looked closely and can't really see the "Victorian woman" they are referring to.

I saw one of those once. I was staring at a placid landscape when all of a sudden a ghost came screaming out of the scenery. I was convinced.

Sorry, there isn't one. :-)

But I did forward the pic to all my friends as a Halloween prank.

The vido is messed up; pixels go haywire about 12-15 seconds into the clip....and I couldn't make out any movement

Conclusion: there's NO SUCH THING as ghosts haunting places.

I watched it several times. It sure looks weird. I would be interested to see what an unbiased and professional film expert has to say about it though.

I saw a ghost in a picture once that was pretty spooky.

It was the famous Lancashire Ghost

I'm thinking that a passing truck or something similar did the haunting.

My video was perfect-- no haywire pixels. The stuff goes over on the floor. Didn't see a ghost, though. The goods, from the video, could have fallen over all by themselves.

Good work in pointing to whatever is in the video. Amazing how some people can only sit and complain.

As far as I know there is ONLY ONE documented Ghost photo! Personally I think its an optical illusion since you have to really look at the picture for a while to see anything!

Yeah, that's what I used to think until I saw one. It scared me so badly I slept with the lights on for a week. I saw the person as plain as day, a solid form, that stood in the room for 10 seconds or so, then faded away. I know it was real and it really doesn't matter to me if others believe me or not.

It's an angry ghost! No, wait, it's a puppy dog. No, wait, it's George W. Bush withholding hurricane rescue from New Orleans. No, wait, it's a bouquet of flowers. No, wait...

Give people an amorphous image, and they'll see whatever they want to see.

Careful, this is socialist England we are talking about. The ghost is probably on gov't assistance already.

Yesterday I found 2 old photographs that we took about 15 years ago in the Tower of London in London England. The first one looks like there is smoke in the picture, in the second one the smoke has shaped itself into sort of 2 human like shapes. No features just body and head shapes. When we took the pictures there was no smoke there. We were taking pictures of an area in the center courtyard (outside) where a sign said it was where they thought the 2 little princes were murdered. I have since seen on the History channel that they think they were murdered in their beds. At any rate the spot where we took the pictures is where they used to chop off heads.

The Brits seem to be too easy in claiming a haunting. I've seen that 'Most Haunted' series and these dudes call dust particles(orbs) a sign of activity. They all seem too high-strung... like psychic Barney Fife's... shaking in the dark.

That SCIFI show... 'GhostHunters' has shown some strange stuff. One recent episode had them in an old nut-house somewhere in New England. It reminded me of a place I was checking out near UCONN.

I've seen a real UFO... but as of yet... no ghosts.

That's strictly your opinion. Every person has their own opinion on whether or not they think ghosts exist and haunt places.

I like that show.... it sticks to the science. There are NO psychics and they generally try to come up with a non-paranormal explanation. Once you bring a psychic into these shows it KILLS the credibility.
