A family have called in a real-life ghost buster – after capturing this video of a poltergeist moving a chair across a bedroom. Lisa Manning and her children Ellie, 11, and Jaydon, six, have fled their house in terror several times because of spooky goings-on. They include pots and pans being thrown around the kitchen, window blinds moving up and down by themselves, lights being switched on and off and drawers being opened. Last week they were even forced to climb out of a window after their being trapped in their living room when the door locked by itself.
Now they have been advised to wear crucifixes by a priest after capturing video footage of a chair moving by itself in Ellie’s bedroom. Carer Lisa, 34, shot the spooky film two weeks ago after putting hidden cameras in the family’s home in Lilley Close, Holbrooks, Coventry. The clip shows a wardrobe door opening before a pink swivel chair moves slowly backwards towards the wall. Lisa, who lives with her partner Anthony, 25, in the house, said she feels like she is ”living in a scary movie”.
She added: ”One medium came in and said our house is a portal, a kind of bus stop for spirits, which they use to pass into our world. I set up the video camera because I wanted to prove the ghost exists. I couldn’t believe it when I played the tape back, it sent chills up my spine. We called our landlords and they sent in a priest who blessed the house but said himself that we shouldn’t live here, we definitely shouldn’t stay. He gave us all small crucifixes which we carry at all times in the house.
”The problem is because we can’t see it, we don’t know where it’s going to be or what it’s going to do. This is a horror house. It’s like living in a scary movie. The worst thing about it is, even I can’t believe what’s happening myself.” Lisa is now begging her landlord Whitefriars to re-house her family. She scatters the house with salt, puts up crucifixes and wears crystals while she waits to hear whether the family can move to another home.
