Most Haunted Is Scary And Here’s Why

23 August, 2014 // 3 Comments

On Thursday evening at 10pm I sat down to watch the return of Most Haunted. My intention was to tweet along with the show and counter any pseudo-scientific claims that they made during the broadcast, and yet I need not have bothered. There was no use of EMF Meters, laser grid pens, thermal imaging equipment, dictaphones or thermometers throughout [...]

Live-tweeting Most Haunted

21 August, 2014 // 2 Comments

Most Haunted is back. Tonight. At 10pm on Really (Freeview 17 Sky 248 Virgin 267). As much as I moan about paranormal reality television I have a secret love for Most Haunted because it is the show that prompted me to become a naive but hopeful ghost hunter when I was Eighteen. I get frustrated at the bullshit they spout as factual, but it also [...]

After my recent post about the ghost photo currently making the headlines after someone taking a tour of Alcatraz suggested they’d caught the apparition of a woman in a window, Bob Dezon, he who taught me how to ghost, has discovered additional photos online that bust open the idea that the ghost photo currently doing the rounds is [...]

View an Update on this here. There is no shortage when it comes to news coverage of pretty rubbish ghost photos, but every now and then a photo comes along that makes you pause.

To cut a long answer short: To elaborate, these shows have nothing to do with paranormal research. I’ve written about why in more detail before, but ultimately these shows are created to appeal [...]

Most Haunted at tea time? Not on Ofcom’s watch!

18 March, 2013 // 0 Comments

A tea time broadcasting of an old episode of Most Haunted at Chatham dockyard has been ruled as in breach of the broadcasting code because alleged psychic Derek Acorah was shown to be supposedly possessed by the spirits of a dead child who had been whipped, as well as the woman who it is claimed was responsible for the death of the child. Ofcom [...]

Rouislip Community Centre Ghost Footage

20 February, 2013 // 4 Comments

*update* I may have been a bit hasty with my opinion on the CCTV ghost reported in The Metro. Bob Dezon has pointed out that a similar effect can be created using Adobe After Effects as demonstrated in this tutorial video that he sent to me.  ‘Ghost’ caught on CCTV video at ‘haunted’ community centre in South Rouislip’ claims [...]
