Number 15. The ZoZo : Like a real life version of Pazuzu from The Excorist, Zozo is said

to be a most commonly contacted through Ouija boards. Many people worldwide have claimed

to come in contact with the Zozo, and have warned it is not a being to take lightly or

be provoked. While its origin is unknown, reports of this malevolent being have dated

back to the early 19th century. People will know they have contacted the real Zozo when

it spells out its name in what is called a Rainbow Fashion, meaning the slider moves

in an arched fashion, spelling Z-O-Z-O over and over again. Youtube is full of videos

of people attempting to contact Zozo, with one even showing a woman becoming possessed

and frantically laughing as she convulses on the floor

Her friends stunned and terrified as they attempt to bring her out of the state. Ghost

Adventures hosted an entire episode on the Zozo , with strange occurrences being documented

throughout their session; these include abnormal behavior of the crew and residents of the

home, and unexplained knockings from around the house. One disturbing moment occurs when

member Nick Groff enters the house alone, and suddenly hears all the dogs in the neighbourhood

simultaneously howl, in almost perfect unison.

For those who wish to contact Zozo, it is recommended you don't, since it is an unforgivable

force who possesses its victims.

Number 14. The Church Piano: For many, Churches are seen as a place of refuge from evil, and

a place of worship. On the other hand, Churches are some of the most common haunts. In November

2011, a video was uploaded Youtube of two friends walking through the woods at night

towards an old church. The two enter and begin exploring the various rooms, including the

sermon area. After entering an adjacent room, the two suddenly begin hearing piano music

playing, despite them being the only two people there.

Freaked out, the two enter the main room and make a run for the opposite end towards the

exit, then flee back out of the woods. Although the encounter was no doubt terrifying, the

two men managed to joke and laugh, albeit nervously, as they attempted to process what

they were witnessing. Skeptics have pondered if the piano was electric, but these ideas

have been quickly brushed off since the church appears derelict and with no power. No other

news surrounding the footage has been released, and the origin of the music remains a mystery.

Number 13. The Pink Lady: Greencastle, Indiana is home to an abandoned mansion just outside

the town's limits. Two enthusiasts, Guy Winters and Terry Lambert decided to venture out past

dark to explore the derelict house after hearing the place was haunted. The two video taped

the adventure, which just happened to be during a thunderstorm. Winters and Lambert noted

various eerie pieces of graffiti, with one saying This Is on the door. Lambert took a

series of pictures of the windows from outside, and more inside when suddenly, Winters felt

he was being watched, and began to smell a mixture of sulfur and roses. The two heard

a series of bumps from around them, which caused them to flee the house and back to

their van. When the two got around to examining their photos, they discovered they captured

the apparition of a woman wearing pink peering out of a second story window, and again in

the door frame. Photo experts analyzed the photos and determined they were in no way

altered. Further analysis emphasized the lights and darks in the photo, and in a terrifying

twist made the face of the apparition to appear to be that of a . Winters and Lambert continue

to use the evidence as proof ghosts exist, and the images are frequently circulated today.

Number 12. Old Crown Pub Ghost: Located in Birmingham, UK, the Old Crown Pub was established

during the 14th century, leaving the pub full of history. However, not all of its history

is good, and with it still lingers entities from the past. Patrons and staff have reported

various encounters with strange forces, from quick glimpses of shadows, to face to face

confrontations with full body apparitions. The Old Crown became a national sensation

when bar the owner and staff released CCTV footage of several beverages crashing to the

ground with no explanation as to why. Patrons and staff witnessed the incident, and were

stunned as they investigated what happened. No one present saw anything suspicious. Landlord

Ciaran Healy was unconvinced the occurance was supernatural, instead believing patrons

were fooling around and accidently knocked the bottle over; however, he was convinced

after reviewing the CCTV footage, loosing a £20 bet in the process. The identities

of the spirits within the Old Crown are unidentified, but could be anyone who stayed and worked

on the premises during its 650 years of operation.

Number 11. Exorcism of Carl Lawson: In the town of Wilder, Kentucky is a well known Country

and Western nightclub known as Bobby Mackey's Music World, owned by musician Bobby Mackey

since 1978. The nightclub is notorious for being haunted by malevolent spirits, known

to customers and workers at random and without provocation. The entrance to the club even

posts a warning to visitors, stating it is no liable for any inflicted by paranormal

activity. The former caretaker of the club, Carl Lawson, used to live in an upstairs suite

of the building, and would sleep with a next to his bed. The spirits began an obsession

with Lawson, and soon he began to display abnormal behaviour. It was soon determined

Lawson was possessed, and a priest was brought in to conduct an exorcism. The entire ordeal

was captured on tape for evidence, and Lawson is shown expressing anger and aggression towards

the priest.

Constantly shoutingThis body is mine.” He even begins to whimper at one point, but

in a woman's voice. It is believed he is being used at this point by Pearl Bryan, who was

in the building in the 1920s in what is believed to be a. Carl the exorcism and the spirits

were cast out of him. He quit as caretaker soon after, but returned briefly to be interviewed

by members of Ghost Adventures. Lawson passed away on January 27, 2012 of a heart, and his

friends and former coworkers wonder if he was ever able to fully Bobby Mackey's, or

if he himself is now one of the many spirits within its walls.

Number 10. The Ghost on the Stairs: The Queen's House in Greenwich, UK is a part of a series

of national museums located around the British Isles, and was once the home of Anne of Denmark,

the Queen Consort between 1603 and 1619. In 1966, Reverend Ralph Hardy was visiting Queen's

House, and decided to take a photograph of the staircase. Upon developing the photos,

he was shocked when he discovered a woman appeared holding the railing with her right

arm stretched towards the top of the stairs. The figure appears to be a woman wearing a

robe of some kind, but the face is obscured beyond recognition. The negatives were sent

to Kodak for analysis, and experts determined they were no tampered with, concluding it

to be genuine. While there is speculation as to the identity of the person in the photo,

there is no conclusive as to who was captured on film. The photo is a true example of paranormal

activity, and remains one of the most haunting ever taken.

Number 9. The Haunted Stores: Not all ghosts will appear in places we expect, such as a

historical building, castles or battlefields, and can haunt the most bizarre locations.

In 2007, a video appeared on Youtube of what is alleged to be a haunting at a Blockbuster

video in Mexico. Not much else is known about the video, but it shows security footage of

videos being knocked off shelves as an employee stocks them after hours. The lack of information

on the video is the main point for skeptics calling out its authenticity, but this isn't

the only haunting caught in a store on security cameras. In January 2015, another video was

released in a bookstore, where security cameras captured a book levitate off a shelf and open,

as if a ghost was reading it. It's scary to think of hauntings not being exclusive to

locations we expect, and the videos will definitely be chilling to those who work alone during

the closing shifts. If any of our viewers have noticed objects moved or misplaced around

the workplace, remember these videos before you blame your coworkers.

Number 8. Spectre of Newby Church: The Church of Christ the Consoler is an Anglican Church

founded in 1870. Located in Skelton-cum-Newby, UK, the church is the location of one of the

most famous photographs of a ghost. In 1963, Reverend K.F. Lord was taking photographs

of the church for archival purposes. Upon developing the photos, Lord discovered one

depicting the tabernacle had a ghostly entity standing at the right of the photograph. The

apparition has a truly terrifying look, resembling a robed man with a strange cloth mask covering

its face. Those who've analyzed the have said the figure appears to be wearing the robes

of a monk dating back to the 16th Century. Furthermore, the figure appears to stand at

9-feet tall, determined by analysis of the height of the furniture in the background.

The photo remains in the paranormal archives as an important piece of evidence of the existence

of ghosts and the paranormal.

Number 7. The Junkyard Ghost: Workers at an Oklahoma service lot got a shock in 2002,

when CCTV captured a strange apparition apparently dancing around the lot late at night. The

apprition jumps around to various points on the camera, as stunned security looks on.

At one point, one of the security team leaves to investigate, but by the time he arrives,

the spirit is gone. The footage exploded in popularity, and was featured on various local

news outlets. However, skeptics studied the footage over and over, and many claim it is

simply an insect flying around and the lights from the yard are reflecting on the camera

to create the body-like figure seen. The owners of the lot had no explanation of the footage,

but all admitted they were spooked by what was seen. The footage was most famously featured

on MSNBC's Caught On Camera episode titled Mysteries and Monsters in April 2013, once

again sending the video viral and unleashing a fresh debate on its authenticity.

Number 6. The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall: Within this Norfolk, UK country house lives

a lonely spirit who wanders the halls. Raynham Hall was once owned by members of the Townshend

family for four centuries. In September 1936, photographer Hubert C. Provand and Indre Shira

were taking photos for Country Life magazine. While setting up for photographs of the main

staircase, Shira saw an apparition slowly descending the stairs towards them, and urged

Provand to take a photo; he did, and to their luck and amazement, managed to capture a near

perfect form of a hooded figure in the centre of the frame. Experts and enthusiasts believe

the ghost's identity to be that of Lady Dorothy Walpole. Walpole on March 29, 1705, of what

is believed to be, and is said to be the most active resident spirit on the grounds, and

is known as The Brown Lady because witnesses describe her as wearing brown robes. It would

be no exaggeration to suggest The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall to be the most iconic photograph

in the paranormal archives, and it continues to be a hot topic of discussion and subject

of lore today.

Number 5. The Pantry Ghost: Starting in January of 2007, a series of videos began to appear

on Youtube on the channel saremy127, which shows a ghost of a girl in the family's pantry.

The girl appears briefly and looks out the glass before vanishing, and at times the door

will open and close on its own. Not much was known about the incidents, and eventually

the videos stopped uploading. However, in 2012 a trailer for a documentary about the

family's experiences in the house, as well as more videos not uploaded to the channel,

and interviews with the family members. Since the beginning, the videos authenticity have

been called into question, and even more so since the documentary's release. Many claim

the videos were nothing more than publicity for the film, but others have stated the time

between the Youtube videos and the documentary are too far in between, meaning the production

team would have to have been extremely dedicated to their indie product and may not even have

had the funds to do so. The idea of advance video software being used has also been debated,

but the videos are truly convincing in being actual evidence of ghosts and a possible.

Number 4. Lord Combermere's Ghost: Wellington Stapleton-Cotton was a British soldier who

served in Canada during the Papineau Rebellion in 1837, and later a Conservative politician

in the British House of Commons before being inducted into the House of Lords as the 2nd

Viscount Combermere in 1865. In 1891, Lord Combermere was struck by a horse drawn carriage,

and seven weeks later from in St. James Palace, where he was living. Not long after his, photographer

Sybell Corbet, Lord Cumbermere's sister-in-law, was taking photos of the palace during the

Lord's. She set up her camera in the Abby Library and left it for an hour before retrieving

it. Upon developing the photos, she found a strange figure seated in a large arm chair

to the left of the photograph. To her amazement, the figure appeared to be that of Lord Combermere.

People speculated a person entered the room and sat down while the photo was being taken,

and even theorized it was a double exposure shot. However, the chances of the subject

being seated directly on the chair is unlikely, and many have included this in the archives

as further proof of ghosts. After all, no one can claim it's a photoshop job.

Number 3. Gas Station Entity: Workers at a gas station in Parma, Ohio, captured a remarkable

spectre on their CCTV late one autumn night in 2007. A large, blue apparition appeared

on the cameras and floated around the pump area for half an hour, before disappearing.

This is the first and so far only instance of a haunting at the gas station since its

opening, and people have continued to speculate its origin. The witness of the event, Ameed

Abuzahrieh believes it to be the of his nephew, who three weeks before the footage was captured

from an. Abuzahreih claims the entity was visable to his own eyes, saying he saw it

after looking out the window. Skeptics believe the footage was altered in some way, or it

was simply a glitch, but this would not explain those who witnessed the apparition with their

own eyes. The story even picked up airtime on CNN, and people flocked to the station

in order to see the footage first hand, which workers have proudly shown to those seeking

an explanation.

Number 2. Freddy Jackson's Last Group Photo: Freddy Jackson was a mechanic in the Royal

Airforce during the First World War. Jackson was in 1919 after by a moving airplane propeller

while working at the HMS Daedalus training facility. Two days later, members of Sir Victor

Goddard's squadron, who had served at HMS Daedalus, gathered for a group photo. Upon

close inspection of the photo, experts noticed a figure partially obscured behind one of

the airman, and when the group saw the photo, they identified the figure as Jackson. While

most would brush this off as a mistake or hoax, it is interesting to note Jackson's

funeral was held the day the photo was taken. The photo did not see publication until 1975,

and the story behind it's eerie, yet charming backstory, became well known. It appears Jackson's

final wish was to be included in the photo with his fellow airman. Since then, there

have been no reports of Jackson haunting the HMS Daedalus, therefore it may be safe to

assume he was able to move one after the flashbulb went off.

Number 1. Ghosts of Gettysburg: The Battle of Gettysburg was the most battle in the whole

American Civil War. The battle was also seen as the turning point of the war, and the deciding

battle in the Confederate defeat and surrender. It should come as no surprise to people the

site of Gettysburg is said to be one of the most haunted locations in the United States,

as well as hosting some of the most active spirits. Several videos have appeared online

of apparitions walking along the hills, and people tells stories of witnessing men in

Civil War uniforms standing at attention several yards away before vanishing, and hearing the

sounds of going off in the distance, when there are no reenactments going on, or other

explanations available. Gettysburg is a National Historic Site, and brings in thousands of

tourists every year, which explains why the area is so famous for the number of ghost

sitings every year. Sadly, these soldiers who at Gettysburg cannot some to find peace

in the, and they all wait at attention for the order to charge or to.
