So, ghost videos are one of my guiltiest pleasures... But it's so goddamn hard to find a good video that's convincing enough ti gee lost in the fantasy, because I've noticed that almost every self-declared paranormal investigator on YouTube is as dumb as bricks, and most of their ghostly encounters are just them not understanding how their own equipment works.

Legit, I was watching a Chills compilation once, and he submitted a news broad cast where a person in the background "faded away" as a paranormal video, and I was just like... You're a YouTuber, how do you not know about morph edits in Adobe After Effects?

There was a pretty good horror flick I caught on Prime Video a little while ago about some paranormal investigators who KNEW they were full of shiat and just making a buck off of fleecing viewers. They accidentally arrange an overnight in a former mental asylum and it turns out to really be haunted and they lose their shiat.

It was kind of slow and full of cliches but I found it pretty enjoyable overall. I wish I could remember what it was called.

Okay, real talk? I stan Scrappy.

So, here's the deal: Scrappy's character was solid, and it singlehandedly saved them show... At least, at first. What went wrong however, is that the longer the show went on, the more they fixated on Scrappy to the point where they were edging out pretty much every other character, and it quickly became obnoxious that the show was suddenly centered around one or more obnoxious puppies that were never allowed to grow as characters.

I find it kind of sad that, with all the modern takes of Scooby Doo that seems coming out, nobody has ever tried to salvage Scrappy's character and he's been forever relegated to punchline.

Csb

One of my college roommates was in video production and was hired as help on one of the ghost hunter tv shows for a local shoot. His job was to make the off camera noises and shadows in a former asylum near campus (with an entertaining supernatural history). I think it was Scariest Places on Earth (The Ridges, Athens, OH).

Made me think of this, but it's not horror or a movie.  But I think the movie is called Grave Encounters.

Whoops, hit enter too early.. Anyway, several years ago we moved into a house over a century old. The first couple month or so, weird stuff kept happening. One day I had my baby on my hip, and kiddo just started smiling and waving and sort of playing peek-a-boo across the front room--for a while. It was a completely blank corner with no furniture or anything nearby. A different day, I heard a man on our stairs. I actually thought there was an intruder and got my phone predailed to 911 and picked up something heavy just in case. No one was there. The freakiest thing, though, was the day my toddler came up to me terrified and said, "Mommy, a man just said "hey" to me. I looked but I couldn't see him. Mommy, why couldn't I see him?" I tried to reassure my kid and say it was probably just a neighbor talking outside, but kiddo was -freaked- and explained it was in the front room where there aren't windows, and "WHY COULDN'T I SEE HIM????" (That kid is also possibly aspie and doesn't lie or do pretend well, and at the time wasn't even aware of the concept of ghosts.) I downplayed it to calm them down, but that one got to me.

Later, I found out that the first owner of the house was a man who died young (don't know how). Also, the previous owner of the house gave me a photo of that first family that's been passed down. It was the guy, his wife, and their kids--same number and genders as ours. There may be completely rational explanations for everything, but if not, I kinda figure it was the man checking up to see who was living in his house, and leaving satisfied that it was a nice family because there hasn't been a single weird thing since.

My son and daughter-in-law just bought a 125 year old house.  She was all excited about living in such an old "haunted" house.

After they moved in, she was waking my son up 4526 times per night to check out the noise she heard.

Ghosts. Yeah. 

I live in a place that has very easily seen 50 million people die by extreme violence during history. Even non-sapiens humans died here... I should be tripping over ghosts; we should be counting ghosts per square meter. Nothin'. I stopped fearing ghosts when I was 7, when I read you could order then about if you yelled at them.

Awesome. My fave MCF games are

Madame Fate
Return to Ravenhearst
Dire Grove
Escape From Ravenhearst

Shadow Lake
was the last game from the original developers. The group that's been releasing them since pads gameplay by making you go back and forth and revisit the same spots over and over. They have some nice ideas, but that's kind of frustrating.
