Haunting moment Second World War ventriloquist doll ‘blinks and moves its mouth’

Haunting moment Second World War ventriloquist doll ‘blinks and moves its mouth’ 98

This is the haunting moment a creepy ventriloquist doll dating from the Second World War allegedly blinks and moves its mouth.

The 1940s doll, named Mr Fritz, was given to Michael Diamond, 48, earlier this year by a former prisoner at a Nazi World War Two camp.

Mr Diamond noticed the door to the doll’s glass display cabinet kept opening up at night, so he set up a GoPro camera to film over two evenings on September 19 and 20.

When the father-of-two from Liverpool watched back through the footage, he saw the cabinet door open – and the doll’s mouth and eyes moving.

He believes the doll is haunted and has now locked the cabinet in his home with a chain and covered it with a blanket.

Mr Diamond said: “When I first watched the video back I had a weird feeling in my stomach.

“I wasn’t completely surprised because what has been happening with the door. At least once or twice a week I noticed the door kept coming off its latch.

“I decided to set up the camera for fun just to see if anything would happen. When something actually did I got a weird feeling in my gut, it’s hard to describe.

“I was really taken back by it and I did have a strange feeling. I wouldn’t say I’m scared of Mr Fritz but I am wary of it.”

The creepy doll was made by an American prisoner at Stalag II-B, a German World War II camp, now in the town of Czarne in Poland. Mr Diamond believes the prisoner worked as a ventriloquist before being taken prisoner.

The doll was apparently taken to America after the end of the war and was owned by an antiques shop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina before it came to the UK.

Mr Fritz was given to Mr Diamond by a local militaria collector in July and it now lives in Mr Diamond’s “freak room”, where all his collector items are kept.

The hobbyist collector is married to Sally, 46, and has two children, Amber, 19, and Caleb, 11.

He said: “The door was being opened once or twice a week and I knew it was strange. You can see on the first night the door swing open.

“On the next night you can see the eyes move before the door opens and again afterwards. The eyes flicker and his mouth moves up and down slightly.

“My wife and daughter both hate it. I get why people don’t like it and think it might be scary but I’m not intimidated by it.

“I want to give it a permanent home. I get emotionally attached to my collections. What’s the explanation is the one million dollar question isn’t it?

“I have no idea myself. I don’t even know where to start. There are no open windows in the room and no airflow. The door is on a latch so shouldn’t just swing open.

“I have told Sally and Amber about it and they don’t like it at all. To stop it from happening I’ve chained the box up and covered it in a blanket.”

Mr Diamond is an entertainer and travels the country performing stunts with his museum full of collectors items like taxidermy animals, spiritual props, skulls and ancient weaponry.

The inhabitant of “The scariest house in Britain” is sure that she lived with a poltergeist for years

The inhabitant of "The scariest house in Britain" is sure that she lived with a poltergeist for years 107
The inhabitant of the most terrible house in England told about ghosts

Shirley Hitchings, an 80-year-old resident of England, a famous resident of “the most terrible house in Britain”, for the first time in many years, told how she was pursued by a poltergeist for seven years and even once moved to a new home with her. She shared her story in connection with the fact that a documentary podcast about these events will be released on Radio 4 in some time.

Shirley Hitchings’ London house is called “the scariest in Britain”.

Shirley’s childhood home is located in the Battersea area of ​​south London. She said that she faced an otherworldly force when she was 15 years old. One day she discovered in her bedroom an ornate silver key that did not fit any lock in the house and which was the first time her family had seen it. According to Shirley, her family was then woken up by a loud rumble that seemed to come from the walls and ceiling. And that’s how it all started.

According to the story of the Englishwoman, strange events took place from 1956 to 1968 – objects flew around the rooms, a mysterious knock was heard, a fire was kindled for no reason. So, according to Shirley, one day a clock fell off a shelf, slippers moved around the room, and a chair rose into the air. 

The poltergeist was nicknamed Donald, and, as grandmother laments, he became like an annoying brother to her. According to her story, once her family poured holy water on her to protect her from the “devil”, but this made Donald even more angry and tore the curtains.

In the hope of driving away the poltergeist, the grown-up Shirley invited a medium – the wife of her colleague – to the house. But the session, in her words, did not help. The situation in the house attracted the attention of the police and even the local authorities. Newspapers began to write about Donald, and these publications were noticed by the famous ghost hunter, Harold Chibbett. 

After examining the house, he told the family that he believed Donald was a restless spirit that haunts a particular person and causes physical disturbances. Some supporters of the paranormal believe that this type of mystical activity is most often “triggered” by adolescents going through puberty, because they release “pure life energy” that feeds poltergeists.

According to Shirley, Chibbett tried to communicate with the poltergeist using cards with letters, and the ghost allegedly responded with a childish scrawl, “Shirley, I’m coming.” According to her, Donald “demanded” a pen for communication.

“He [the ghost] was like a bully, demanded, told people what to do. He took all my old dolls that were kept in a chest in the attic and brought them downstairs. He cut off their heads, tore off pieces of fabric from my clothes and left notes in which he ordered to sew dresses of this material If someone angered him, he wrote, to “punish” a piece of paper, and you knew that you were waiting for that night, “-. Shirley shared, according to quotes from the of Sun

According to the Englishwoman, the ghost also scared away her boyfriends. And when Shirley got married in 1965 and moved to West Sussex, the ghost allegedly went with her and told her in new messages about what her parents were up to.

According to the elderly woman, Donald “fell silent” in 1968 – he left the last message to her parents with the words that he was leaving them alone. By that time, the family was already so used to the ghost that Shirley’s mother burst into tears, but she and her father were happy.

However, there is no evidence that the poltergeist Donald actually existed.

The ghost of a deceased guy walked on the water: an eyewitness filmed him

The ghost of a deceased guy walked on the water: an eyewitness filmed him 109

The incident took place in the province of Davao del Norte (Philippines), where a resident, seeing a drowning dog, rushed to save him. The dog was pulled out to a safe place, but the man himself was pulled into the depths. Everything that happened was recorded on camera by a woman named Chanel.

When Dondon (that was the guy’s name) went to the bottom, one eyewitness immediately called for rescuers. While the brigade was doing their job, it became clear that the man was already dead. They searched for his body for several hours. What is surprising in the story is that suddenly a silhouette of a man came to the camera, he appeared right above the water. Chanel, who records the video, believed it was the spirit of Dondon.

During the video recording, the eyewitness did not expect to see anything like this, because she does not really believe in ghosts. The entity had obvious human features, so it definitely had a spirit. For several hours they searched for the body of the drowned man and pulled it out with an excavator.

It’s pretty creepy to look at the tape. According to an eyewitness, goosebumps ran over her, especially after seeing the spirit. It should be noted that not all users believe in the authenticity of the video. Some people think that the footage may well have special effects. Chanel refutes any such claims: the video is original. She understands the doubts of people, because the shots are really ‘out of this world’.

Special skills and abilities are required to distinguish the edited video from the original. Of course, hardly anyone will devote time to study the presented video. We can only hope that the woman did not actually use editing software.

The footage confirms the existence of the human soul and gives hope that life after death does not end.
