I recently got in a couple of reports dealing with the phenomenon of shadow people. A shadow person is also sometimes called a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass. It is sometimes even referred to as Hat Man as sometimes these figures appear to be wearing a hat.

The perception is that these black masses are a living, humanoid figure and is thought to be evidence of the presence of a spirit or other entity.

I got the following photographs sent to me about 10 days or so ago. The pictures were taken back in 2016 at Assateague Island Beach, Md.

I was sent 3 total photographs and some accompanying background information.
Here is that information and a short video.

Due to being extremely busy, I forgot to make a post that our latest film, The Mysterious Monroe House, came out on DVD and streaming services in February.

In case anyone didn't know, the mysterious Monroe House is a place with reported paranormal activity. Some even claim the activity is demonic. The house was built somewhere around the middle 1800's and according to what we were told, has a very checkered past. The drive there was roughly a 6 hour drive for us. We got in the house a little after 5pm. We actually arrived a couple hours earlier and used that time to get something to eat and take some pictures and video of the town. Once in the house we were treated to an oral history and a tour of the house by the owner, Eddie. We investigated into the wee morning hours and finally called it a night. Most of us only got about 3 hours sleep before we headed back out for home.

Next up is this ghostly image captured by Helen at Lake Cumberland. There is also some enhancements, zooms and before pictures in this post. But before we get to them lets talk a little about Lake Cumberland. After reading some of the history of the lake I can understand why there might be ghost hanging around.

Lake Cumberland is a reservoir in Clinton, Laurel, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell, and Wayne counties in good old Kentucky. The reservoir ranks 9th in the U.S. in size and contains 6,100,000 acre feet of water. It was built for two primary reasons: one to help control flooding and two the production of hydroelectric power. But if you dig into some of the stories and history you will find some really spooky tales.

Let me first start by saying I do not personally know Steve Huff and have only watched a handful of his YouTube videos. I have not dug into what he does or tested the validity of his work. I do want to share some information about him, for those who may not know, and show how one person attempts to expose him as a fake. You can make up your on mind as to which side you believe.

First lets give some information about Steve Huff and Huff Paranormal.

When Tyler was young, back in 2008, about like 6 years of age, when he and his parents moved into a small house in the woods that used to be a hunting cabin in Hedgesville,WV. Everything seemed to be normal until a few months later. He said that he was outside playing in the backyard, when he saw a black humanoid creature with glowing white eyes and about 5'8" in height, watching him from the woods. As a young boy he was very curious, so he started to approach it and it just vanished into thin air. This occurrence scared and shocked him, very much so that he was afraid to go outside for months.

Before I get into the whole story about this strange picture, let me tell you that I do know the people involved and the witness personally. I know the location and have been in this store many times. Now with that said I want to let you know upfront that I can not use the name of the store or the witness's real name. We always try to protect those who wish to remain anonymous.

Now, on with the story.

This was a very recent event and there seems to be some on going paranormal activity taking place. Today, I spoke with the witness, who was still shaken up by the whole experience, and got the details.

TCC's Tony Felosi, along with guest investigators Dana Green and Heather Ealy, return to the old Harlan County Court house to attempt contact with a entity we think is a young girl.

In the past, it seems the spirit of the young girl is more willing to interact with female investigators. This trip the team also bring along some toys to use as trigger objects in hopes that the young girl will be more willing to interact.

It seems to have worked as there is interaction with the ball and it was captured on camera.

Here is the video.

Electronic Voice Phenomena or just EVP for short, are sounds recorded on electronic devices that are interpreted as spirit voices. Many psychologists regard EVPs as a form of auditory pareidolia, meaning that the investigator is interpreting random sounds as voices and there really isn't any voice there. But over the years equipment for capturing these voices has gotten better. There are numerous ways to record EVPs. Everything from very low cost devices to ones that cost a thousand dollars or more.

I think EVPs are great evidence of the spirit world. What makes it amazing is that many times you will get a direct response to a specific question or set of questions. This goes way beyond auditory pareidolia, in my opinion.

With that said here is three very interesting EVPs.

The Manzo Shepherd Case
“Murder and Mayhem in Bloody Harlan”
Story by  Tony Felosi

The story of Manzo Shepherd and the events that spawned one of the most infamous trials in Harlan County history started on Black Mountain. At 4,145ft it is the tallest peak in Kentucky and one evening in late April 1942, was the location of a brutal murder.

Within one month of the murder of Joe Christian, a taxi cab driver, Shepherd  would be shot in a crowded courtroom of 300 people and his accomplices, Sherman Clouse and Howard Hensley, would both eventually get life sentences to avoid the death penalty.

Shepherd was killed By Jack Heaton nephew of the murder victim who within 9 months would be set free. Here is a short article describing the events in the courtroom when Shepherd was shot.

As we continue to roll out some of these incredible EVPs from our investigation team, I think it is important to let everyone know that none of these are faked. These sounds were often times captured on multiple recording devices. No voice sounds have been added in at all. After an investigation, it takes many hours to sift through all the different recordings.
Once a potential EVP is discovered, the first thing we normally do is simply boost the audio. After that, if we feel it is an actual voice, we do a variety of things to clear up the sound. Reducing noise levels can sometimes be very effective.

In the video below, Tony, the lead investigator, ask a simple question and gets a pretty clear reply.

Recently, Myself and Tony Felosi from Harlan County Paranormal conducted a investigation in Harlan County,  Kentucky.

It was on a special day and in a special place. It was the 75 anniversary of a unusual death at the courthouse. This entity has been pretty activity for Tony over the last several years. So, we went in hoping to catch some stuff, we were not disappointed.

Here is a short video of some of the investigation.

First, let me say the video found in this post has never been viewed in any public forum. I'm very glad to be able to bring it to you. The video was shot by Johnathan back in March of 2005. He was using one of those VHS-C video recorders. They look kind like a smaller, but fatter, version of a VHS tape. The video was shot at what is considered to be one of the most haunted houses in America, The Myrtles Plantation.

Myrtles Plantation was build in 1796 by General David Bradford. The plantation is located in St. Francisville, LA. The plantation house is rumored to be on top of an ancient Tunica Indian burial ground. It is currently a bed and breakfast, and offers historical and mystery tours.

I was alerted to the video by Sam, he was able to get Johnathan in contact with me so I could check out the video.
More of about how the video was captured is told during the video. The video also contains various enhancements.
Here is the video.

Still frame from video
Today I was just surfing around the internet and ended up on a rather bizarre video. Now, I have no idea if the video is real or not but it appears as if an unseen entity drags a sleeping man out of bed.
There does not appear to be a lot of back story as to where this is at or if there is a history of paranormal activity in the building. I have not really done any analysis of the video but found it interesting and thought some of our readers would like it.

Here is what is basically stated about the video. A ghost is caught on CCTV and it shows an unseen being entering a room where two men are sleeping and then proceeds to drag one of the men out of bed by his legs. You first see a door presumably open by itself and a few seconds later the dragging starts.

Let's take a look at the video and then I will offer some final thoughts.
Still frame from video
Recently a video was posted on youtube of what appears to be poltergeist activity. The video presents two video sequences, both of which was apparently captured in the same home. In the first sequence the activity is rather subtle but in the second clip the activity appears to be much more aggressive.

Before I give my overall opinion of the video let me fill you in on the back story.

Apparently the little girl in the video had been complaining to her father about something scaring her. So the father sets up several security cameras throughout the house. The video presented below is reportedly what was captured.

The above picture was posted on Reddit. It shows an odd looking figure in the frame. I do not know who to credit for the photograph or actually where this was taken. What I do know about it is that it was taken in a park during a full moon. Reportedly the person who took this picture was snapping off several pictures, and this figure showed up in one of them.

The figure appears to be rather small but with nothing for scale it is really hard to determine the overall height. The figure does appear to be bipedal and humanoid in appearance.

I will attempt to enhance the image to gather more details.

When we speak or write about a Golem, most people probably think we are talking about Gollum from the J.R.R Tolken's Lord of the Rings or Hobbit movies. But while they may have some similar traits, we are not talking about that creature and his pursuit of his precious ring. Nope, we are talking about an animated anthropomorphic being from Jewish folklore. The golem would normally be formed out of clay or mud and would be brought to life and then controlled. The method of this seems to vary with different tales.

The oldest stories of golems date to early Judaism.  In the Talmud, Adam was initially created as a golem, created out of mud. Early tales of golems lean toward them not having the ability to speak. One of the methods, at least early on, to bring a golem to life was to use various letters from the Hebrew alphabet to form a "Shem", any one of the names of God, and write it on paper and insert it into the mouth of the golem. You could later stop the golem by removing the paper. In some cases removing the paper from the mouth of the golem caused it to return to dust other times it just put it on pause.

Another method of animating and controlling the golem was to write the word "emet" on the being. In Hebrew "emet" means Truth. Usually this was written on the golem's forehead but I have seen stories where it was written on the back of the hand or other methods used.  The golem would be stopped or deactivated by removing the "e" from "emet". That leaves you with "met" which would mean Death or Dead in Hebrew. So you would go from Truth to Death by scrubbing off the letter. In some stories, the golem would be deactivated once it completed the bidding of the person who was controlling it. In some cases it was used to do hard work, to get revenge or settle a score.

The Golem on DVD

There is a long history and many hand me down tales about golems. There is even one about a Nazi trying to stab a golem during WWII in an attic of a church. The attic is not open to the general public but in 1984 a film crew was able to visit and film the attic. They came away with no evidence to support the old WWII claim.

Golems have often made appearances in movies, TV shows, games and cartoons. Even in today's popular shows and movies golems can be found. I would assume that most people have no idea that golems are actually rooted in Jewish history and folklore. That many people have and continue to believe in the creation of golems.

While I can see that there may be some confusion about golems, and just what they are, I heard it explained like this:

A Ghost is a spirit without a body, a Golem is a body without a spirit.  

And I know a lot of us believe in ghost, but what about Golems?
Maybe it is worth taking a deeper look before making up your mind.

October is the month in which we talk about ghost and goblins. It seems we tend to hear some good ghost stories in the month of October. I ran across and good one today and wanted to share it. It comes from the Heartland Series which is produced by WBIR Channel 10. The original air date is 1984.

Here is the episode.  

The actual title of the episode is "Haints" but most people call it the "Milk Pail Lady" episode.
The character of Otis Dixon is played by Hal Watson and the milk pail lady is played by then Heartland producer Laura Armour.

Scanning around on youtube and ran across this rather interesting video. It shows the inside of a warehouse, there is a worker or two, the worker walks out of the room and the loading cart starts to move on it's own. Once the worker returns, the cart stops moving and it appears the worker is a bit freaked out as he seen the cart moving.

But there could be more to this. I noticed a white light just before the cart starts moving.
So, I took just that very small section, and a few still frames, and attempted to enhance this unknown object.
Here is my efforts, what to you think?

Warehouse Ghost Pushes Cart ? by CryptoTV

I recommend everyone also watch the original clip.

Now, could this be real evidence of ghost?

Do you think the video is real or a clever hoax?

Scary Apparition In Japanese WW2 Mine

There’s nothing like the long wars of our historic past to leave so many dead along with lingering spirits wandering aimlessly in these often downright creepy locations. And the mountains of Japan among the mine ruins of WW2 are at the top of the list of those locations.

Fearing serious radiation leaks in an old WW2 mine, Japanese engineers sought out to investigate a mine near several leaking reactors. But as they videotaped the investigation, they got more than they bargained for. Their cameras started to malfunction as they entered the lower tunnels and electronic voice phenomenon (EVP’s) can be heard on the sound recordings and is said to be saying “I will kill you” in Japanese. The deepest part of this tunnel is said to be approximately 1500 feet deep into the mountain and can be accessed by steps or wooden slides, as you’ll see in this clip. And a very clear ghost/ apparition of a shirtless man appears in front of them. 

Tell us what you think. Real or fake?
