Paranormal Lockdown introduces us to a new nightmare with a creeper ghost
I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, but when it comes to posting paranormal content, I tend to stay away from footage taken from supernatural reality shows. There are, however, exceptions.
It’s not that all ghost hunters on TV are scammers – although more than a few are – it’s just that even the legit ones tend to make a lot out of what may be a little. A ghostly voice could just as easily be wind coming through a pipe, and a door slamming in the distance is more likely a building settling rather than a supernatural entity tearing up the place.
Sometimes the footage they capture can’t easily be dismissed though. Sure, the show could be completely full of it and the ghost or levitation or intelligent voice could be a fake; the people making the show could deliberately be trying to trick us. That’s always a possibility. Make your own decision.
The clip below was captured by the show Paranormal Lockdown, hosted by former Ghost Adventures investigator Nick Groff. The idea for the show is that he and fellow paranormal investigator Katrina Weidman go to locations said to be haunted, then they spend 72 hours locked in. They are alone for the most part, but they are occasionally joined by technicians and camera people.
The clip below was recorded at the Trans-Alleghany Lunatic Asylum, a former psychiatric hospital in Weston, West Virginia. The hospital operated from 1864 through 1994, and has a brutal history that has led to countless ghost stories. That makes it a frequent destination for ghost hunters.
While in the asylum, the team captured what they later called a creeper ghost. Make sure you turn up the contrast on your screen to see it. In the background, in the dark, you can see what looks like a… thing crawling by. It’s the stuff of nightmares. Enjoy!
