Dolls and puppets are made primarily for kids for entertainment. However, whether we like it or not, there’s something really creepy about them. In fact some are used in witchcraft while some are being possessed or are haunted.
And this one’s creating 100% creepiness after he tried to kill his owner.
A creepy puppet said to have choked its former owner has been filmed moving inside a sealed glass container in the dead of night.
The 32 year-old, Paranormal Investigator Jayne Harris, of Stourbridge, West Midlands, recorded the puppet every night for three months – after its previous owner claimed it tried to choke him to death.
And last month she was left dumbfounded, when her cameras caught the chilling moment when the wooden doll appears to come to life. Night-vision footage shows the puppet’s operating cross slowly moving upright before crashing into one of the sealed box’s glass panes. According to Jayne who investigates haunted dolls,
I’ve never had anything as exciting as this. I’ve caught pictures of mists, orbs and shadows but nothing as physical as this video evidence. For us there is no point in faking your own evidence as it’s only tricking yourself – this footage is real. Now we’re going to keep filming with motion sensors as this is just one video and we want to build a bigger picture currently we don’t know the name or anything else about the spirit. Our ultimate goal is to find out as much as we can about the spirit and then try to understand why he is still here.”
Jayne, who is also a trained psychologist, has been investigating spiritual attachment to haunted puppets for 17-years – took the old man puppet in November last year after its former owner claimed to have been choked by a spirit connected to the children’s toy and also experiencing haunting nightmares.
The puppet’s former owner, John (who didn’t want to unveil his full name), inherited the 1960s toy after his father’s death. He claims to have experienced minor haunting experiences which built up to one evening where he believes the spirit attached to the puppet was choking him.
I cleared out all of my dad’s belongings apart from the puppet, which I left on the drawer by my bed for some reason and that night it felt like I was being choked. I was wide awake in bed and thought I saw a shadow move from one side of the window to the other and worried something was trying to scare us. Then without warning my throat suddenly went really tight, I’ve never had anyone’s hands around my throat before so it was really scary.
Jayne used an electromagnetic field (EMF) reader, which helps detect paranormal activity, around my house and when I gave her the puppet the meter started flashing and beeping. The fact that there’s video evidence now makes me uncomfortable to be honest, I wouldn’t watch it as I don’t need any more proof that it was haunted. I lived with the puppet for months and it did more than enough to convince me,” John said.
