Tonight’s Ghost Adventures episode has Zak, Nick, and Aaron heading across the border to Old Fort Erie in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada.
ABOUT THE FORT
It was Ontario’s first fort (built by the British in 1764). It served as a base for British troops, Loyalist Rangers and Iroquois Warriors during the American Revolutionary War.
During the Siege of Fort Erie from August 3 to September 2, 1814 (part of the War of 1812), 3,000 troops were killed or wounded there. Now it’s known as Canada’s bloodiest battlefield.
SHOCKING SHADOW FIGURE
Tonight’s Ghost Adventures episode makes it clear Old Fort Erie is one eerie place indeed. The guys catch some of their best evidence not only of this season, but to date overall.
Like the below clip of a shadow figure. They use a man named Daryl, a groundskeeper at the fort, as a trigger object. He’s in the kitchen doing an EVP session (and catches one), but then cameras also catch a very distinct and shocking shadow figure.
As one person commented on the clip, it almost looks like it has claws!
It reminded me of the shadow I saw on the third floor of the Old South Pittsburgh Hospital. Same sort of circumstances (pitch black, during an EVP session) just sans the IR camera. (And the claws. If the shadow I saw had kookie shaped fingers I would’ve bolted!)
FACT OR FAKED?
It is very wild. I’ve watched and rewatched it over and over again trying to figure out how they’d fake it if it was staged. (Because I’m always a little skeptical of such clear footage. In this case because there are two cameras on this guy. One behind him, and one showing him from the front. Having two angles like this is not a usual set up for the show.)
However, I’m not savvy enough to debunk it (if it in fact can be debunked or proven fake just by watching). There looks to be a window behind the groundskeeper. It’s possible someone was outside casting a shadow, but that would’ve required light and that would’ve shown up on the IR.
I can’t explain it, but I know creepy when I see it and this is one creepy clip! What do you make of it?
