'Poltergeist' caught on camera moving chair across bedroom

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.

I will file this under 'I'd have to be there to believe it'.

I'm not the least bit impressed. The person pulling the string is really not a master of stealth. Do a retake and try to be more silent this time.

A more simple explanation might be telekinesis. They do have an 11-year-old girl living in the house. Doesn't so-called poltergeist activity increase when there are pubertal kids around?

I'm afraid crucifixes and crystals aren't going to do much against hormones and screwy emotions.

Do they think we've never heard of string?

I dunno, im not one to believe normally but you would need to be pretty stupid to release this to the world and use string to move things around, she either has a requirement to gain massive attention, shes stupid or she really does have a problem.

I suggest cleaning the room up, move the camera back so people can see the bottom and top of items so the string theory goes out the window and upload a new video to shut the mouths of the people that dont believe. Until then, I have to side with the string idea.

Anonymous, you really must not visit this blog that often if you find it hard to believe someone could be that stupid, or in such a desperate need for attention. At least to me, this is the place where I come, daily, to lose my faith in humanity. :-)

Anyway, no matter how good the guality, no home video is going to be sufficient evidence for the existence of ghosts.

Yeah, I’d have to go with the string theory. I’d have to be there and see it, and feel it, to ever believe it. I actually heard a blurb about this on my local news so I pulled the web up on my Logitech Revue with Google TV that I’ve been using as a DISH customer/employee since the device came out and was able to look this up and post while still watching the news on the same screen. Love it!
