For as long as people have been having paranormal encounters, there have been skeptics who believe that the solution to every puzzle lies in the rational, scientific world. However, every once in a while a piece of evidence pops up that even skeptics have a hard time explaining. Below, read about 8 paranormal videos that have made even the most cynical skeptics doubt their disbelief.
8. Paranormal Videos – Apparition Caught on CCTV
When a security guard watching the video feeds from his post in Mexico reported for work, he probably wasn’t expecting to see any paranormal videos. However, on this particular day, something appeared on the closed-circuit cameras that he and his coworkers had a difficult time explaining. On the camera, the guard could see two of his coworkers standing watch outside. He was shocked to notice a mysterious figure standing only a few yards away from them.
In the footage, the figure is completely dark. It appears to be made entirely of shadow. Its shape is clearly human, but compared to the guards we see in the video, it is significantly shorter.
When the guard watching the cameras spots the ghostly apparition, they immediately report it to the coworkers standing nearby. They quickly turn towards the spot to investigate. The two men walk right up to the figure and shine their flashlights directly at it. However, they can see nothing.
The guard watching the video is perplexed, as the shadow still appears on the monitor. The other two guards continue searching, even appearing to pass through the shadow figure at some points, but they never see or feel anything. Throughout the entire investigation, the apparition never moves.
What is this terrifying shadow creature? Why is it only visible on the video? The guards who experienced it firsthand have no explanations, but many are certain that the men encountered a ghost.
7. Ghost at Okinawa Air Force Base
When a guard at the Okinawa Air Force Base in Japan thought they saw something unusual on the CCTV monitor, they had to rewind the video and watch it again to be sure. After a second look, they were certain they had found something that would stand out among the other unexplained paranormal videos on the internet.
The footage, which was uploaded to Youtube by JOSE CRUZ, focuses on an intersection outside the base. It is unclear what time it was when the video was recorded, but the sky is inky black. Just behind a road sign in the bottom left corner of the screen, a dark shadow begins to slowly amass. At first, it looks like any ordinary shadow. As it grows darker, it becomes clear that something more unusual is happening.
Suddenly, the dark shadow raises itself from the ground and flies across the road. It hovers for a moment before returning to the center of the street. As the shadow crosses the road, the streetlights allow the camera to pick up more detail about the apparition’s shape. While it is rather amorphous, the overall shape appears to be that of a human. The witnesses had no explanation for the strange events, but are convinced that a ghost was to blame.
Could the entity be one of the infamous shadow people that witnesses all around the world are seeing en masse?

It isn’t unusual for small children to be fascinated by mirrors. Babies and toddlers often find it endlessly amusing that the child being reflected back at them copies their movements exactly. It isn’t until they are older that they realize the child in the mirror is them. In one of the internet’s more disturbing paranormal videos, however, the child in question may have been correct in assuming that the image being reflected back was another being entirely.
The eerie video was uploaded to Twitter by Nasrullah Napi. As the child’s mother films him playing with the mirror, the little boy turns toward her to give her an adorable smile. In a shocking twist, the reflection in the mirror doesn’t copy the action. Instead, the reflection continues looking forward. Even more shockingly, the child’s eyes take on a sinister appearance in the mirror, turning a terrifying shade of black.
After a few seconds, the reflection suddenly looks like it’s being fast-forwarded as the child in the mirror rushes to catch up to the movements of the real-life little boy. We hear fear in the mother’s voice as she calls for the child’s father to take him from the room. Clearly, she wants to keep her child as far away from the mirror as possible.
What do you think is going on in this video? We often see photos of this sort of phenomenon floating around the internet – someone looking at the camera while their reflection is caught in a different pose. These sorts of images a often disregarded as photoshop hoaxes and could be quite easily created with even some basic knowledge of photo manipulation. However a video of a reflection moving on its own is a different story entirely.

5. Preserved Mummy Moves
When Rosalia Lombardo died of pneumonia in 1920 at only 2 years old, her father was heartbroken. Wanting to preserve her innocent beauty for eternity, he sought out Sicilian embalmer and taxidermist Alfredo Salafia. Unlike most mummies, Rosalia’s body was well-preserved and still looks remarkably lifelike, making her a popular tourist attraction at the Capuchin Catacombs. However, many fans of the macabre visit the girl’s tomb for a very different reason.
In various paranormal videos showing time-lapse photographs of the mummy’s face, tourists who have visited the tomb point out that her eyelids sometimes appear to be closed. At other times, they appear to be open, giving tourists a clear view of her perfectly-preserved blue eyes. They believe that her spirit still lingers with her earthly remains.
Staff at the museum have a different theory. They assert that the mummy’s eyelids are always open. The light that comes into the tomb at different angles throughout the day causes an optical illusion that makes her eyes appear to be closed at times. In spite of this logical explanation, paranormal tourists still flock to the tomb for a chance to see the allegedly possessed mummy.
4. Paranormal Videos – Ghostly Woman Hit by Car
La Llorona is a popular figure in Latin American folklore. According to the story, this legendary woman in white was abandoned by her husband. The scorned woman attempts to exact revenge on him by drowning their three children. After her dastardly act, she is immediately stricken by grief and takes her own life. Ever since, she has wandered the earth in search of her children, and any who hear her mournful cries are said to be cursed with bad luck.
While the legend is popular, the “Weeping Woman” doesn’t often appear in paranormal videos. Yet, many believe that La Llorona is the star of this viral clip, uploaded to Youtube by Now You Know.
In the video shot in Mexico City, a spot of white gradually materializes in the center of a street. Suddenly, the spot transforms into a woman with long, dark hair wearing a white dress. Just as she materializes, a car speeding down the street drives right through her. She never moves. Even after the car drives off, she remains standing in the same spot. If just seeing the Weeping Woman brings bad luck, this motorist who ran her over might be in for some serious trouble.
3. Strange Shadow Walks on Stadium Roof
Some football fans live for their favorite teams. If this video is to be believed, one fan may have extended their devotion into the afterlife as well.
In a video recorded at the Notts County Football Club Stadium in Nottingham, England, it appears that a ghostly figure attempted to get a better view of the game by staking out a position on the stadium’s roof. In a close-up video, you can see the faint figure of a person walking along the sloped edge of the roof. To make the footage even eerier, the apparition’s body remains exactly perpendicular to the roof at all times, even when walking down a steep slope.
The figure is almost entirely transparent, but its appearance on the stadium roof has yet to be logically explained.
2. Paranormal Videos – Lady in White Vanishes on CCTV
Ladies in White are some of the most common ghostly legends. They often have tragic backstories that make their appearances even more frightening. In one of the creepiest paranormal videos shared by YouTube channel The Hidden Underbelly 2.0, a mysterious woman in a white dress gives a couple of security guards a good reason to be frightened.
One of the two security guards working at Galerías La Paz, a shopping mall in Mexico, sets out to do his usual rounds around the mall late one evening. His partner remains behind to keep an eye on the security cameras. The guard notices nothing unusual as he does his rounds, but when he returns to his post, his partner seems concerned. The partner asks if he saw a woman in white in the mall, and the guard replies that he didn’t see anyone. When the guard watches the security video, it becomes apparent why his partner was frightened.
Clear as day, a woman in a white dress appears in the footage walking right past the patrolling guard. The image is completely opaque unlike many paranormal videos showing more transparent ghosts. While there is no explanation for the woman’s image on the security video, the shopping mall where she was spotted has been known for supernatural occurrences in the past. Others have spotted ghostly children in the mall and the building is suspected to be a site for ritual sacrifices.
1. Ghostly Shadow on Roof
When Michael Flannery moved into his wife’s family home, he was nervous about the stories the rest of the family told. They were certain that the house contained some sort of ghostly presence. People would regularly see and hear things that they couldn’t explain. Some of the children in the family were terrified of the house, even refusing to go into certain rooms. Flannery decided to set up a hidden camera in hopes of solving the mystery.
He wasn’t expecting the video shot in his bedroom to be so terrifying. The video clearly depicts what appears to be a large black cloud flying quickly into the room and toward the ceiling behind the camera. It flies out again a few seconds later, following the same path.
Some viewers have written off the video, believing that the cloud is simply a shadow of something passing over a lightbulb. However, Flannery and his family are certain that the video depicts their resident phantom.
