From a ghost seen at a graduation ceremony to an eerie audio recording captured in a haunted house, these are real ghost encounters caught on camera.
6. Mysterious Force Opens Door
We filmed a scene for our El Fili play trailer in the control room of our auditorium. After this happened, we were too scared to continue the taping.

When Twitter user @chaubreybunny set out to create a student film, she was probably not expecting to capture any real ghost encounters on camera. However, that’s exactly what happened when she began filming this particular scene in the control room of the auditorium.
The footage begins with the camera moving steadily down a short, dimly lit hallway. As it approaches the door at the end, it suddenly swings open as if pushed forcefully by the actress on the other side. However, as the actress emerges from the darkness it becomes apparent that it wasn’t her who opened it. Confused, she appears to ask the camera holder if someone on their side had opened the door.
If you slow the footage down, you can clearly see that no one touched the door from the outside. To make matters even spookier, if you look closely at the darkened room behind the actress, there appears to be a shadowy figure moving behind her. The footage isn’t clear enough to get a good impression of who or what it is, however it seems likely that this ghostly shape could be the culprit for the door’s mysterious movement.
That, coupled with the fact that the actress has a genuine look of surprise on her face suggests that these budding film makers might have actually captured some paranormal activity on camera.
5. Ghost at Graduation Ceremony
Graduations are a time for celebrating accomplishments, enjoying your final moments with your classmates, and looking forward to whatever the future has in store. However, not many people can claim that their graduations were interrupted by a terrifying ghost encounter. At a ceremony in the Philippines, that’s exactly what happened.
As the camera holder pans around the group, attempting to capture as many students as possible in the footage, you can clearly see a white, ghostly figure standing on the roof of a nearby building.
For a moment, it almost looks as if it is one of the graduating students. The white dress worn by the ghostly entity is an eerie echo of the graduation gowns worn by the students. However, the figure on the roof stands deathly still, watching the students in silence.
Many have likened the ghostly figure to the infamous “White Lady,” a type of spirit often seen all around the world. She is a ghost typically associated with violent, tragic ends, often roaming the earth in a state of grief. Sometimes searching for a lost lover or even a child.
While it’s unclear how many of the graduating students actually noticed the figure standing above them, one this is for sure. This is certainly some very creepy footage.
4. Paranormal Activity Seen at School
This video, uploaded to YouTube by Allan Abueg, shows that ghost encounters can often occur when you least expect them. At least that’s what happened to this custodial worker at a school in Victoria, Laguna, Philippines.
The CCTV security footage shows the cleaner sweeping the floor on an outdoor veranda. When his back is turned, something suddenly begins moving behind him. He doesn’t seem to notice, but the objects appear to be moving without human intervention.
If you zoom in, it looks as though it’s a broom and dust pan that slide across the floor. Some viewers have suggested that the wind could be responsible for their unusual movement. However, both of these objects look too heavy and there is no other signs of a breeze.
What do you think? Could it be possible that the broom and dust pan really were moved by some sort of supernatural force? Or is it more likely that the cleaner was simply the brunt of a creepy practical joke? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
3. Unseen Entity Spooks Child
YouTube channel Horrifying Nightmares is no stranger to ghost encounters. It seems that their home has had more than its share of visitations from beyond the grave. Their kitchen in particular seems to be a beacon for paranormal activity; the YouTube channel boasts numerous videos depicting the ghostly apparitions and possible poltergeist activity that have kept the family on edge for months.
Because the visitations have been so frequent, they decided to set up cameras around the house so that they would be prepared to capture all of these fascinating, yet terrifying, ghost encounters.
In this clip, their young child gets seriously spooked while playing with the refrigerator magnets. As the child begins moving them around, the magnets suddenly slide across the refrigerator as if manipulated by some unseen force. The child is clearly startled, and runs around the corner to another room.
It’s easy to see why some might think that the magnets were on a string being pulled by someone off camera. However, if you zoom in, it appears that there is no string present.
If this video does indeed show evidence of a real ghost encounter, it seems unclear what the spirit’s motivations are in visiting this particular family. Is it malevolent, or just bothersome? Was the ghost trying to scare the child, or was it just playing along? No harm has been done so far, but only time will tell.
2. Ghostly Arm Caught on Camera
When YouTuber, Patrick Cochran decided to visit the notoriously haunted Hinsdale House in New York, he was certainly hoping to capture some ghost encounters on camera. According to the legends, the Dandy family moved into the property during the 1970’s, believing they’d found their dream home. However, their dream quickly turned into a nightmare.
In the beginning, the family would receive bizarre phone calls. Objects started moving around the house on their own and the family heard mysterious, demonic chanting coming from the woods nearby. They even started seeing apparitions of a woman in white, human-animal hybrids, and demons.
On one particular night, the family noticed several sinister looking faces staring at them through the windows. However, when Mr Dandy ran outside to confront the trespassers, the faces suddenly reversed and were then seen peering at him from inside the house.
The incidents eventually turned violent when objects began hurling themselves at the family, causing significant injuries. At this point, the family called a team of paranormal investigators along with a priest named Father Alphonsus. The priest performed an exorcism while the family and investigators watched. Unfortunately, the exorcism didn’t work, and the family was forced to move out of the house.
In this video, uploaded to YouTube by Patrick Cochran a group of paranormal investigators decide to visit the house, which many believe could still be haunted by the same demons that plagued the Dandy family.
As the investigators search the premises they inadvertently capture something rather chilling. While peering into one of the bedrooms with a flashlight, a strange shape seems to manifest out of the darkness. The uploader believes that this shape could actually be a disembodied arm and shoulder of some sort of ghostly entity.
If you slow the footage down, there is certainly something there and it does indeed bare an eerie resemblance to an arm. It is only visible for a split second then it disappears just as mysteriously as it appeared.
What do you think the strange shape could be? Is it really the arm of a ghost? Or could it be something else entirely? Love to get your opinion on this one in the comments section below.
1. Eerie Audio Recording
YouTube paranormal investigation channel Ashes II Ashes often looks into cases of hauntings and possessions. A woman named Gail contacted them, claiming that after experimenting with a Ouija board years ago, she’s been plagued by paranormal experiences ever since. She says that the worst of it happens at night: she hears voices, feels burning on her skin, and gets scratched, slapped and even choked.
The investigative team arrives to attempt to document her experiences, hoping to help her by proving that what she’s going through is real.
During their time in the house, the team’s cameras capture a variety of mysterious and terrifying sounds, such as footsteps moving from one side of the house to the other. They use specialized equipment to attempt to communicate with the entity, and hear fairly clear voices saying “Gregory,” “Tom wants you,” and “Go with him.” The investigator then feels something breathing right next to his ear as he attempts to communicate with the disembodied voices. Gail begins to feel the entity touching her and immediately sees bruises appear on her body.
However, the most terrifying message is heard after Gail becomes so uncomfortable that she feels compelled to leave the room. The investigators continue asking questions, and the entity says, “We’ve all come for her. We’ve all come for her.” This chilling message is the last that the team receives and while it isn’t certain what the voices want from Gail, it does sound as though she could be in danger.
Hopefully, the Ashes II Ashes team were able to help Gail finally exorcise her demons.
