'Ghost' Caught on Camera at Haunted Hotel Actually Looks Legit (VIDEO)

Love It! 62

ghost caught on video

OMG. I love, no I mean L-O-V-E all things paranormal. Something about a person's soul being so connected to a place that it refuses to leave even after death absolutely fascinates me. So I couldn't wait to see this footage of a ghost caught on a security camera video at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach, Florida.

And I can't lie, before I watched, I figured the people at the hotel were probably overreacting and were seeing a ball of dust or the passing headlights of a car -- until I actually saw the clip.

I definitely can't explain it, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say it looks like this really is footage of an actual apparition on video.

Are you ready? Here goes nothin'. Prepare to be spooked.

Pretty creepy ... and convincing, right? At first I thought maybe it could be an optical illusion, but what really made me think this might be a spirit is how it seemed to "walk" away the minute that dude came into the room to check out what was going on. Seriously, whatever it is was making intelligent movements -- not just randomly floating around.

And now I can't wait to go and visit this place the next time I'm in the vicinity of Daytona Beach -- which I'm sure crossed the minds of the hotel staff before sharing this video. Hey, if a restless spirit can help drive up tourism a bit, they might as well put him (or her) out there for the world to see. Nothing quite says "charm" like sleeping in a room you may or may not be sharing with a ghost.

Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever seen one?

Wow! That was weird! I have to say that I do believe that we all have a soul and sometimes, our souls get stuck here. Interesting.

It looks more like an animal walking to me. The ghost of an animal? Lol

odd. But I do believe we "go on" after death. My grandpa died in the middle of the night in a nursing home after a severe stroke. When my aunt went to wake up and tell my gramma, she was up and dressed. June asked her why and Gramma said "Albert (my grandpa) came said goodbye"

I've seen videos like this debunked as "bug on the lense" and that is what this looks like to me. If an insect is on the lense of a camera meant to record at long distances, it cannot focus on it and all you get is a blur.  If you watch the movements they are very insect like in how they flit about. 

This is the explanation for most security cam "ghosts."

I'd love to say its a ghost, but I kinda agree in that the fog is moving more like an insect would. It doesn't look solid enough to me to be something on the lens, but it could very well be. My first inclination is a spirit making that much intelleeint movement would also go around the bar not over it. And unfortunately, there's not enough to do a depth of field test, I wsh it would have come closer to the box at the bottom of the picture, if it was behind the box, then we can tell for sure its on the bar and not the lens, while a shadow moving over the box is more likely on the lens than in the scene. And unfortunately, the human mind is suspicious enough that we'll think we've found what we think we're looking for. Like a security guard looking for something in the dark. But hey, if Casper wanted one last drink, or to serve one last drink, good for him.
