I saw the moving pictures on the Beeb this morning.  Total fake.  It's someone in a costume

I'll take your word for it. I haven't seen the footage, and until one does it's just a very stagey image. No doubt someone playing games with the security guys.

Here, though, is our mate Wiseman quoted in the Daily Mail:

'If this is a ghost, it's one of the best images ever. What's good about it is that it's not ambiguous - it's clearly a solid figure, not blurry or a reflection. The main thing is that it's a moving film - and moving film is much, much harder to fake.' grin2.gif

To be honest, without seeing the video it's virtually impossible to comment. Certainly there is nothing in the photo that looks anything more than a jolly jape, but the video may well give a different story.

Anyone seen the video who can comment?

It's an interesting problem with stills of ghosts and ghost  photographs, isn't it?

There are hundreds of 'ghost' photographs at the ever excitable Ghoststudy site - HERE, and the vast majority of them are, in my opinion, too nebulous to be anything, or so nebulous as to be nearly everything.

The few very clear ones smack instantly of trickery, as does this particular photograph in Hampton Court.

It raises the question of whether it's actually possible to have a universally convincing ghost photograph (or film for that matter) - in the sense that they all seem to be either too amorphous to be discernable by all but the fanatics; or too clear to be acceptable by all but the gullible.

good point, and that can go along with anything really, like aliens, and such

i think most people would need to see it with their own eyes to believe, and honestly i'm oone of those...  i may see a picture that looks real, but i remain skeptical

the only experiences i know and trust are my own, but i am very interested in seeing picutres/videos of everything!

I agree with nearly everone else-it's probably a hoax.  A very good hoax, but still a hoax. Hey, it kinda does look like Scream doesn't it? Lol. Still very interesting.

It sure looks like a real person I wouldn't doubt that it was a real person.

There is another thread started about this .. it is titled "Hampton Court Ghost Caught on Tape"...

I posted these comments on that thread...

Wow... I saw the video of this on CNN Headline news earlier today!!! It was really impressive... but as Cufflink said.. he did use the door handles to open the door.

But as the figure is going back inside the door.. to me .. it looked as if the bottom of him.. like his knees to his feet ... that area became transparent... could this have been a video trick?

I am going to watch CNN news again tonight to see if they play the clip again.. and I will try to get a closer look.

I agree with doomgirl.. real or not.. it is very creepy!!!

(If anyone here's anything about it being proven a hoax.. please post it)!


I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I haven't seen the video footage, but did hear a couple of the security guys interviewed on radio earlier. They seemed genuinely perplexed. One said that the door the 'ghost' apparently opened was tough for a grown man to manage easily.

Anyone else find it kind of disturbing that the fire doors are tough for a grown man to open easily!?

Time for a health and safety inspection I think!  tongue.gif

I do like this footage captured by the CCTV. The angle of the camera has also given a more dramatic appearence.

However, why open the push bar doors, the subject could have walked through them if a real ghost  wink2.gif

A nice one, but I guess underneath the cloak is a pair of Levi 501's, a cheap sweat jumper and someone with spare time on their hands.

Nice try, but I need more  tongue.gif

Oh, oh, oh. Tell me, what do you people actually see when the doors fly open? I see an almost invisible image of something, perhaps the spirit itself,  AND THEN the spirit walks up and pulls the doors closed again, with some difficulty it seems...  huh.gif

What forced both doors open in the first place?  dontgetit.gif

You can't tell me you see someone opening the doors...  wacko.gif

My opinion? Take a closer look!  w00t.gif

Perhaps it is a spirit practicing his telekinesis!  thumbsup.gif
