Night At The Mausoleum: MacKenzie Poltergeist

The communication methods of modern society are very different from those used just a couple of decades ago, and as these continue to evolve so too do the ways in which folk stories evolve. This means that it isn’t unusual for the origin of a ghost story to shift and change much quicker than it would have through traditional retelling, and it means that hauntings don’t always come to a conclusion as they might have before.

 

In updated afterthoughts for ‘This House is Haunted’, Guy Lyon Playfair (2007) notes that the incidence of poltergeist cases seem to be on the decline. That said, Playfair was probably not thinking about what would happen should a Poltergeist gain a social media following because, despite the rarity of Poltergiest cases, there are some such entities which certainly dominate media coverage in the UK, have a fanbase (you know who you are), and break a few of those classic “rules” along the way. For example, the Black Monk of Pontefract has morphed from an entity which terrorised a family in the 1970s and then vanished, into a tourist gimmick which appears to perform on demand several times a week for ghost event group attendees. But of all the UK poltergeists with an online presence, the one said to terrorise visitors to Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh is the most social media savvy, or at least it would seem so.
