Many people will say that they don't believe in ghosts and will write off an odd occurrence with all the rational excuses (dog, cat, wind, leaving the toaster plugged in, etc.) they can come up with. Do people say that they don't believe because of the fear of them actually existing? Or do some people genuinely not believe in the afterlife.
Both the believers and non believers can agree that a good ghost story can always raise goosebumps and even remain on your mind for days after hearing the tale. Seeing authentic video footage can be even more haunting, some so clear that even the non believers start to question. After some extensive digging, we came across some of the scarier videos floating around online—although some of them were obviously faked. The ones that are included in this list are the most realistic, and therefore, the most convincing videos that appear online (which is why I’m writing this post from under my duvet).
Here are some of the most convincing ‘real’ ghost sighting videos online:
10 Disney Land Ghost
Could it be good old Walt Disney dropping in to check on things? Or could one of the specters simply have escaped from The Haunted Mansion? Originally posted in 2009, this video seems to have resurfaced this year—probably because, to be quite honest, the ghost looks like the real deal. Shot in California in the park after hours, the ghost seems to be having a fantastic time, even walking on water near the end of the clip. Which can be a nice relief for those who don't mind a ghost with a positive attitude.

4 Woman Walks Through Ghost
It seems like quite a few of the creepiest ghost videos featured on YouTube originate out of Japan, so here’s one more. Here a woman is walking down the street, and seems to unknowingly walk through the figure of another person. Caught by a surveillance camera, the figure seems to float, unmoving, while the woman carries on with her day. How incredibly disturbing is that? While some people think the figure might be either a being caught between universes or a wandering spirit, it’s more than likely just the result of some clever camera work. Or so we hope.

2 Ghost of Longleat House
Longleat House is one of the most beautiful examples of architecture in Britain. Rebuild after a fire in 1580, the manor, which even today remains within the Thynne family, was once owned by Thomas Thynne, who married Lady Louisa Carteret in 1733. Rumour has it that the 2nd Viscount Weymouth suspected that one of her footmen had romantic intentions, and confronted him about it. Of course, that story ends with the poor guy getting his neck broken and being buried under the stairs. Although it can’t be confirmed, it is said that workers stumbled across his remains while lowering the cellar floor. Thynne told his wife that the footman ran away, but she was convinced he was locked away in the house. She died three years later during childbirth, but apparently the ghosts of both her and her footman roam the old manor. This video shows her other half, and it’s downright creepy (Note: the sound effects that are playing in the background are part of a tourism gimmick, not coming from the ghost.)
1 Ghost in WWII Tunnels in Japan
Whenever I watch a ghost video on YouTube, I always make sure to read the ‘Comments’ section first, because people calling out the validity of the video makes me feel safer. This video is tricky though, because it really is just about the most terrifying ghost video I have ever seen, and commenters seem to fall short on their explanations. Apparently (and as always, I use these words lightly), this apparition was captured on film during a visit to the mountains of Japan, in a series of mining tunnels used during WWII, by a group of engineers who were down there testing for radiation leaks. If you listen closely, you can even hear EVP (electronic voice phenomenon)—a term you might have heard used on Supernatural.
