found this video on youtube tonight. I am not one to really know the staged ghosts to real ones. The "demon child" to me looks like it could be real, but I don't know if you can really get that much detail from a ghost or even a demon.

Another thing to is, the part where they said freaky stuff happend after "using something you shouldn't use", you hear loud breathing and what sounds like multiple voices speaking in tongues or whatever the language the demons speak (i think tongues is both God and the devil, please correct me if I am wrong).

Anyway, I think if it is a hoax, it is a pretty elaberate one. But please fill me in. And if anyone has any suggestions as to how to tell hoaxes from real findings, that would be great to! Thank u!

Some of those were pretty creepy, I enjoyed them alot. The guy who made the demon child video starting at 4:06 certainly knows how to produce a good horror scene, the long buildup made it extremely creepy. The last one is another classic. The japanese certainly know how to make creepy horror. :wave:

I can't say for sure if any of it is real or not... with youtube, I kind of doubt it. I do have a definite opinion on the "poltergeist" activity scene that was filmed in the '70's. In my opinion, that one is definitely faked. It has the feel of the old stop-frame cinematography used to film the original King Kong movie. Just my opinion.

the one with the camera looking in the mirror was bothersome.

I do think its fake moslty because people spend life times trying to capture one thread of evidence, and this guy happened to catch over 9 minutes worth.. eh... doubt it.

That stuff was so cheesy, it made me hungry for Ray's Pizza in NYC.

I love the disclaimers that say "unedited" and then seconds later the film is missing frames continuously from beginning to end. These people are amateur to say the least.

Funny how things work out...

:D

Yeah, there did seem to be a bit of editing done to those "unedited" sequences.

At least it was good for some entertainment.

I was a bit bothered by not that particular youtube entry, but someone else had placed an entry on called "Demon baby" of a horribley deformed newborn infant and it throughly disgusted me because the exploitation of an infant in this manner.

I have seen babies who look like that, we had one born last year in our hospital with the same condition. It is a rare genetic disorder called Harlequin Syndrome, a form or skin disorder known as Icthyosis. It is caused by lack of keratin in the skin and causes the skin to not form properly...it is usually paper thin and prone to splitting. These babies normally do not live more than a few days. It is horrible that someone could put this online like that...completely disgusting.

The guys wanting to sell his house so hes trying to give it an X factor, acting like its all haunted, the activities are easily explained, string, remotes to move things, people dressed up, something as simple as waving a tishue just above the camera and orbs fly about on screen, and the last clip... well.. if you believe that one to be real....

I agree that most of this was faked...the one that purportedly happened in the 70's...look next to the dresser...canes were not made that way in the 70's.

I didn't see a single convincing video in there, sorry. You have to place unconditional trust in the presenter of these videos before you can even begin to believe they're real. For some reason some people don't hesitate placing this trust in random strangers presenting videos on the internet, I don't see what these presenters did to deserve such kind of trust.

Definatly fake...I've watched too much ghost hunters and other programs about ghosts and things to believe this is real. I know that there are ways to put 'ghosts' in videos.
In magic, anything is possible.You can teach a cat how to use the toilet.Teaching it how to flush is another matter.
