A spooked family have called in a real-life ghost buster – after capturing this video of a poltergeist moving a chair across a bedroom.
Lisa Manning and her children Ellie, 11, and Jaydon, six, have fled their house in terror several times because of spooky goings-on.
They include pots and pans being thrown around the kitchen, window blinds moving up and down by themselves, lights being switched on and off and drawers being opened.
Last week they were even forced to climb out of a window after their being trapped in their living room when the door locked by itself.
Now they have been advised to wear crucifixes by a priest after capturing video footage of a chair moving by itself in Ellie’s bedroom.
Carer Lisa, 34, shot the spooky film two weeks ago after putting hidden cameras in the family’s home in Lilley Close, Holbrooks, Coventry.
The 52-second clip shows a wardrobe door opening before a pink swivel chair moves slowly backwards towards the wall.
Lisa, who lives with her partner Anthony, 25, in the house, said she feels like she is ”living in a scary movie”.
She added: ”One medium came in and said our house is a portal, a kind of bus stop for spirits, which they use to pass into our world.
”I set up the video camera because I wanted to prove the ghost exists.
”I couldn’t believe it when I played the tape back, it sent chills up my spine.
”We called our landlords and they sent in a priest who blessed the house but said himself that we shouldn’t live here, we definitely shouldn’t stay.
”He gave us all small crucifixes which we carry at all times in the house.
”The problem is because we can’t see it, we don’t know where it’s going to be or what it’s going to do.
”This is a horror house. It’s like living in a scary movie. The worst thing about it is, even I can’t believe what’s happening myself.”
Lisa, a full-time carer, said she was sceptical when her children started complaining about hearing noises and seeing objects move on their own.
But she became suspicious after her pet dog was mysteriously killed last October after apparently being shoved down the stairs.
She said: ”I found him lying at the bottom of the stairs badly hurt.
”No one was in the house at the time. I took him to the vet but he died. The vet told me later his injuries were consistent with being shoved.”
Lisa is now begging her landlord Whitefriars to re-house her family.
She scatters the house with salt, puts up crucifixes and wears crystals while she waits to hear whether the family can move to another home.
And last week Lisa claims the spooky antics have got worse, with lights flickering on and off and hearing footsteps at night.
Last Wednesday the family were so scared they even hid in the living room and were forced to escape out the window after the door was mysteriously blocked.
Lisa said: ”Ellie tried to open the door and shouted at Anthony to stop pulling it to stop her from getting out.
”She didn’t realise he was right behind her.
”We all tried to open the door but it was stuck as though someone had put their weight behind it. In the end we got out through the window.”
Ellie said: ”I’m scared to go home and I don’t like to go upstairs on my own.”
Whitefriars say they are advising Lisa on applying for a new home.
Dave Round, area service manager, said: ”We sympathise with Miss Manning and have been supporting her with the issues she has been experiencing.
”We first met with Miss Manning in January and our staff have listened to her concerns in a sensitive manner.
”In February, after detailed discussions between Miss Manning and our staff, we agreed to arrange for a priest to attend the property, at her request.
”We have offered advice and support to Miss Manning on the options available to her for applying to move home and we are happy to continue to do this.”
I love how you can hear the fishing string break when the chair gets hung up and someone is pulling too hard… and then you see a slight recoil in the chair… nice try!
