I don’t know about you, but the internet has made me quite the cynic. There’s been so much fake stuff floating around out there that my fake-radar pops up in almost every viral video. All of the heartwarming reunions, pranks and *SHOCKING* is enjoyable for the first thirty seconds, but it always creeps up that this might be/probably is just more fake garbage. YouTubers get outed for fake videos all the time, and it seems no matter where you turn there is another video that can be debunked. I just wanted to get that out there because there’s going to be a sizable amount of people who will cry “Fake!” at some of the videos in this list, especially the paranormal ones. I’ve had the same thought, but let’s suspend our disbelief for a moment and take these videos at face value.
Security cameras are supposed to keep us safe – or at least offer a transparent blanket of perceived security. Take a look at my article on how the government is basically spying on us at all times, but I digress. Security cameras are supposed to be a tool to keep the public from harm. Sometimes, though, they provide a much more unsettling view of the world around us. These fifteen security tapes hardly did anything to make people safer, and instead added to the collective worry of what’s out there. From ghosts attacking innocent people to aliens abducting a man and dropping him off two hours later, these videos do little more than put a layer of goosebumps on your skin.

In 2009, an actor by the name of Joe Cummings uploaded a video to YouTube of a security camera he placed in his own home. The video got over 10,000,000 views and it’s no wonder when you find out what it contained. Cummings was hearing noises around his apartment at night, and often awoke to find some of his food missing. He thought it was his girlfriend, who denied ever rummaging around in his place. Cummings set up the camera to catch his girlfriend snooping, or even sleepwalking without her knowledge. What he found was much more troubling.

Elisa Lam became a viral sensation when a video was released following her disappearance. Since then, many theories and lore has developed surrounding the case, and it's understandable when you see the video that may have been the last time she was seen alive. The video is taken from an elevator in a hotel where she was staying. Elisa enters, paces, presses all of the buttons multiple times, hides in the corner and continuously checks the hallway. The video while not graphic like some others, it is incredibly strange and unsettling. Elisa is clearly acting erratically, and even exits the elevator and appears to talk to someone in the hallway. She then exits the elevator before it leaves. Soon after the release of the video, guests at the hotel began filing complaints about the water. When the water tank was checked, Elisa's body was found floating, naked, with her clothes and belongings next to her. An autopsy was completed after several days, and Elisa Lam's death was determined to be an accident. The mystery surrounding this case has led many to believe that police were not being entirely truthful, and there were many more questions than answers.
