List Rules Upvote the ghost videos that make you a believer in the paranormal.

While most people will likely never see a ghost in real life, haunted recordings purportedly showing ghostly figures actually exist. Some people believe it's easier to capture ghosts on film due to energy impressions or the ability of a camera to capture a single moment in time, and it's easier than ever to share these real recordings of ghosts online thanks to YouTube, Reddit, and other social media. These videos, taken in multiple places throughout the world, feature strange appearances and events that are tough to explain without a supernatural influence.

These creepy ghost recordings offer compelling existence for spirits. Some are malevolent, some are indifferent, and each one is an interesting peek into what might be happening beyond our realm of experience. Though some people might explain away these images because of camera tricks, digital manipulation, or other explanations for each anomaly, there's no way to prove these scary ghosts caught on video aren't real. These ghosts caught on tape will thrill and chill even the most hardened skeptic.

Crying Ghost Sets A Family Up For An Awful Scare

The first part of this video, in which a man is woken up by the sound of crying and finds a crouching figure in the hallway, is scary enough. But when he returns for another glimpse at the figure, he finds it closer, its arms in the air, making it less likely to be a figment of his imagination and more likely to be some otherworldly presence in his home.

Pets Experience A Frightning Scene Just Outside The Camera's View

Video: YouTube

Pet owners know the eerie feeling of seeing your cat or dog watch something you can't see, and this dog owner put their pet's extra senses to the test. Captured in 2008, the footage starts off with radio interference and an orb, but gets substantially weirder. A door opens and shuts on its own, a roll of paper towels goes flying, and the dogs bark and retreat from something behind where the camera is sitting. It's a freaky scene, one that's not easily explained by camera tricks.

Mischievous Spirit Pesters A Video Store Employee

Video: YouTube

Anybody who's ever worked a lonely night shift has probably experienced the eerie feeling of something watching you, but this video store employee has proof that something strange was happening. This security footage shows the employee putting away videos, but, more interestingly, it shows strange events happening when his back is turned. The cart moves on its own, as if pushed by an unseen person, and videos begin falling from the shelves. After a few weird moments, the videos fall off in front of him, clearly not pushed by anything we can see. While running away may not be the most exciting response, let's be real - it's what most of us would do if we thought a ghost was messing with us at work.

Exploring A Haunted Mine Reveals A Past Disaster

Video: YouTube

YouTube user Exploring Abandoned Mines is known for exactly that - exploring abandoned mines. So when he ran into something strange while exploring the Horton Mine in 2013, it was a surprise to all. Upon returning in 2014, he experienced strange machine sounds, an unearthly mist, and what sounded like a woman on a PA system warning of an incoming detonation. While there's not much to see in the video beyond the interior of an old mine, the audio is quite scary - just clear enough to be understood, but just out of place enough to send chills up your spine.
