Alright, this video, IMO, has no ghost in it, but the situation itself is pretty neat. I have no way of knowing if this is faked or not, so, for sake of argument, we'll assume it isn't entirely staged.

A woman heard screaming coming from her room, and they sent someone (untrained) to check it out. Supposedly, at about 0:35 you can see a ghost walk by, and then the light outside the door flickers. The man is inside the room with a flashlight. This is most likely the very shine/glare type image we see pass on the wall and by the camera. The guy is inside checking out the room, and the light does not flicker quickly at all, he could just be trying to turn lights on/off to a: get more light in the room or b: lure someone out of hiding if they're in there. Everything that is claimed to have happened in the room could easily be someone who actually broke in and rummaged for stuff, but it doesn't quite add up (tearing up a carpet? unless

If the situation was in fact real, this is a pretty fascinating video.

Let me know what you all think!

The lack of time being shown on the camera and the lights flickering makes me believe its something produced, ala Paranormal Activity

Though a movie about a haunted hotel shown via security footage might be kind of cool now that i think about it

Assuming(?!?) this is a security video with hotel security personnel...

When we see cops are involved or security is involved, it may tend to add credibility for some of us.

But, "security" in a hotel can sometimes be anyone, from a 17-year-old who also works as a busboy in the hotel restaurant to someone with no qualms about staging something like this (and posting online), all the way to what we hope would be someone with more maturity who takes his/her job seriously.

I can see humans destroying a room, happens all the time. The screaming? They never said if an audio device was found...doesn't seem like John took the time to look hard for one.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

this video been posted here before. I and another member found the owner was trying to get funds from kickstarter to make his own paranormal movie. that brings red flags, especially the guy at the hotel is also in the kickstarter video

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Yeah, I looked but couldn't find that thread.  Lots of red flags with this video.

If it was real, it'd still be creepy.

There doesn't seem to be one genuine ghost video on the internet, damn it.

"It has not been edited".

Yes.  Yes it has. Like I pointed out on the previous thread it has been clearly edited.  How else did they get it to go from one angle to 4 different angles being shown at once to then splicing between footage shot from different angles and then repeating the footage of the ghost and then again zoomed in on the ghost unless the YouTube video was edited together from multiple pieces of video footage?

Yeah, this one is staged. A goodly creepy staging for entertainment, but nothing paranormal.

Absolutley agree with staged. Red flags? Yeah many. "John" sure says a lot for a guy that only brings his radio up for a split second, and apparantly likes to disreguard protocol. Who in the pterodactyl is "Amy"? And why do you only hear one side of the transmission? Why did the "entinty" wait for Johnny boy to open the door before making it's grand exit? The lights flicker yet the dispatcher doesn't say anything? What kind of ghost destroys carpet? etc...etc...

To all of you, this is exactly why I wanted to post it here. It seemed like it could have gone either way, but to me it seemed pretty fake. I figured if I gave it to you experts, you'd all be able to tear it apart. Thanks for the input and the great discussion, everyone!

To Brian Topp, regardless of the rest of the video, you'd have been able to put every nail in the coffin.
