Irish High School Captures Poltergeist On Video In The Gasp Menagerie

Throughout the fall, reports from Deerpark C.B.S. in Ireland have spread across the Internet, beginning with a video that went viral.

This video, supposedly pulled from surveillance cameras mounted in the halls, shows some clearly strange physical activity going on in the school.  Books fly, doors open and close by themselves, and lockers nearly tip over.  This was on the first of October, timing that this reporter didn’t overlook when the video broke.  Neither did I miss the fact that the school was preparing for their Fall Carnival which would apparently feature a charity haunt.

A few weeks later, another video was posted that showed more of the same sort of activity in another hall.  This, too, caught the attention of the world.  The activity this time was more advanced, with chairs levitating and objects sliding across the hallway.

Again, this was still prior to Halloween.

The principal claims it’s not a hoax, unless it’s also being played on him.  Pulling it off would require access to the school in the wee hours of the morning, so clearly the staff would need to be involved in any hoax.  While there’s nothing on display here that couldn’t be pulled off via some well-coordinated tugs on fishing line, certainly the setup and cleanup would show up on camera before and after this segment, so those publishing the video (which is on the school’s official YouTube page) would also have to be in on it.

It must be said that this is the oldest school in Ireland, with parts of the building dating back 200 years.  Paranormal activity has been witnessed in the past in the school, although no reports of poltergeist activity of this level are included.

What do you think?  Is this a very well-executed hoax by the students and staff of Deerpark C.B.S. to promote their Fall Carnival?  Or, do we have extremely clear video evidence of poltergeist activity?

Have a weird story? Potential evidence of the supernatural, or at least something hard to explain? Spot any creepy critters out there roaming the wilds? LET ME KNOW! I’d love to talk about it and possibly write it up right here in the Gasp Menagerie. You’ll get appropriate credit, of course, and everyone else will get fresh creepy (as opposed to fresh Creepy, which, trust me… nobody wants that) to enjoy. As always, I can be found at Now get out there, find some weird, and let’s get this party started.
