HE'S HEARING VOICES... FROM ANOTHER WORLD!

Tommy Frazer's dad just got married. Now Tommy's got a new mom. And he's going to a new school—Bell Valley Middle School. Tommy doesn't hate school. But it's hard making friends. And his new school is so big, it's easy to get lost. Which is exactly what happens. Tommy gets lost—lost in a maze of empty classrooms. And that's when he hears the voices. Kids' voices crying for help. Voices coming from behind the classroom walls...

When 12-year-old Tommy Frazer moves to a new town and begins attending a new school, he decides to help decorate for the upcoming school dance in order to meet people. Thalia Halpert-Rodis , a beautiful, kind, blonde-haired girl who always wears a lot of makeup and red lipstick who is also working on the dance, requests red paint and Tommy offers to get it for her. Along the way he hears a voice, but nobody is there. He meets a tall girl with eerie, gray eyes named Greta while on his way back to the gym. He also gets lost and stumbles across a room marked "The Class of 1947 ". Inside are statues of twenty-five children; the principal appears and explains that these statues are in memory of the twenty-five children of 1947 who mysteriously disappeared after getting their class picture taken.

On the night of the dance, Tommy and his friend Ben Jackson need to fix a banner. While searching for needed materials, they find an elevator. They start pressing buttons, but the elevator doesn't move. They look of a ‘Door Open’ button, but they can't find one. They see a button that they think might open the doors. Once they press it, nothing happens. Then they see a red button, which they push. But, instead of an alarm going off they see that the elevator is now going sideways. This transports them to a classroom in Grayworld, a place where everything is in black and white. Here they meet Seth Cortez and his friends, Eddie, Mona, Eloise, and Mary who became a few of the members of the Missing Class of 1947 and who have not aged even after all that time. Seth tells them the story of how a photographer named Mr. Chameleon sent them to this colorless world with his camera during the class photo. Everyone was transported to this world and gradually lost their color.

Tommy and Ben decide to investigate the world outside of the school, although Seth warns that his remaining classmates had gone crazy years ago and now roam the outside land as savages. Seth and his friends remain in the school, because it is the only place they consider safe from their former friends. Ben and Tommy leave through the classroom window into the town outside. There, they get attacked by the other members of the class of 1947, who perform strange rituals involving a pool of steaming black goo. Angry that Tommy and Ben still have color, they want to turn them into "one of them" by dumping them into the goo pool.

Seth and his friends save Tommy and Ben at the last minute, and Tommy manages to distract the kids with the light from a lighter his grandfather gave him. They return to the classroom, and as Tommy and Ben try to figure out how to escape, Seth informs them that only one girl has ever escaped and no one knows how. Tommy thinks that it must have been Greta, the girl with the gray eyes he saw at school. Tommy remembers how the lighter still had light and tries to use it to somehow escape, but the flame is now colorless as well. Suddenly the elevator opens and Thalia appears, surprising everyone. Seth and the others are excited to see her and already know her name. It turns out Thalia is the aforementioned girl who managed to escape the gray world.

Thalia explains to her friends how she opened her tube of lipstick one day and got excited after discovering that it still had color. She hadn't seen color in so long, she tried to draw on the wall to make colorful pictures. But when her lipstick touched the wall, it made an exit into the real world. Thalia immediately went through it without thinking and the hole instantly closed, before she could go back for the others. She had tried to make another hole but the lipstick was only ordinary in the real world.

Though she was back in the real world, Thalia also discovered she was still without color, so she hid this condition by constantly putting on makeup. Not knowing what else to do, she had stayed around the school looking for a way back into Greyworld to save her friends. Now, after being in the real world for a while, she decides that both she and her friends are better off in Greyworld. Using her lipstick, she opens a doorway for Tommy and Ben to escape while she and her friends stay behind.

Tommy and Ben flee and return to the gymnasium. When Tommy and Ben come back, they see their classmates standing in a settled position and they run and join them. The principal tells Mr. Chameleon to take their picture. Tommy protests but the picture is taken.

haunted school locker

Was a Ghost Caught on Camera in the Hallways of an Irish School?

A video purportedly showing a ghost haunting a hallway at a school in cork, ireland, went viral in october 2017 — just in time for halloween., published oct 26, 2017.

False

About this rating

In October 2017, a video posted to the YouTube page of Deerpark Christian Brothers School (a secondary school in Cork, Ireland) purported to show closed-circuit television footage from a school security camera that caught a "ghost" opening and closing doors and knocking over signs:

The video was a viral hit. It earned coverage by a wide variety of outlets, including Today and the New York Post , and racked up more than 12 million views within a few weeks of its initial posting. Aaron Wolfe, the school's deputy principal, told news outlets that he didn't know how the video was made:

"We couldn’t understand how this had occurred,'' Wolfe told TODAY in an email. "If it is a prank, it’s very well done!" [..] "The school is built on a site known as Green Gallows,'' Wolfe said. "In the 19th century, criminals were hanged here. We only found that out on Monday. The pub nearby is actually called the Gallows." [...] "People have suggested that we’ve used a green screen, or edited someone out,'' Wolfe said. "I wish our school had these types of resources. Others have suggested that fishing line is used. I don’t see how fishing line could open the locker because the locker doors don’t stay closed unless the latch on it is turned.

Despite Wolfe's spooky innuendo, we found a few clues indicating that this video featured some clever editing rather than a ghost.

A few days after this video was originally posted , the school shared a photograph of the "haunted hallway" to their Facebook page along with a brief passage describing their hope that the area would be "paranormal free" that weekend. This image gives a wider view of the hallway — and also shows the security camera that presumably filmed this paranormal encounter. However, the placement of the school's actual security camera does not match up with the position of the camera used in the video:

haunted school locker

The ghost footage was taken at nearly eye level, whereas the visible security camera is located several feet higher and above the door. Also, the ghost footage shows the picture frames along the same wall that the actual security camera is located. If this footage was truly taken with this security camera, these frames would have been obscured or hidden.

So the camera that shot the footage was either floating in mid-air (possibly held by a second ghost?) or — more likely — was set up on a tripod in the middle of the hallway, indicating that this is the work of humans, not ghosts.

As these two cameras were in different positions, it wasn't possible to perfectly match up the resulting images. However, this comparison shows that the "ghost" footage was not taken from this security camera, despite the claim:

This ghostly footage also conveniently appeared just a few weeks before the school's annual "Fearpark" event for Halloween. In fact, it was prominently featured in social media posts promoting the event:

haunted school locker

There were a few other clues that the phenomena in the footage were not the work of ghosts. For instance, when the caution sign is upended, the pattern on the floor briefly disappears, indicating that this footage featured clever editing, not paranormal activity:

Even more telling, however, is how the locker door vanishes for a split second before the "ghost" flings papers on the floor. We've slowed down that moment to make it more apparent:

All the students would have needed to make this video is a tripod, a camera, and some film editing software like After Effects — not the green that Wolfe alluded to in his interview with the Today Show.

Here's a tutorial showing how a similar video was made using masking techniques in After Effects:

The Cork school does appear to have a penchant for the paranormal. Students created elaborate props for the "Fearpark" event:

Lots of preparation for FEARPARK going on in the Art room #FEARPARK #Art #Halloween ??? pic.twitter.com/e1S7B0sYLL — DeerparkCBS (@DeerparkCBS) October 24, 2017

In April 2016, a group of first year film students created a zombie film.

When we have reached out to the school to clarify the contents of the video, Wolfe told us that it was “100 percent not a student project”, and that if it was a prank “no one has come forward.” Wolfe also said that a second disturbance had been caught on camera:

It seems that the creator of the first video learned from some of the apparent mistakes in the original. The camera is in a slightly higher position that more closely matches the angle of a security camera, and the editing is less obvious. However, some artifacts of editing can still be glimpsed; they are most noticeable as the chair crosses the floor (note the disappearing line between the legs and the blurry outline surrounding the chair):

The school may not be know (or at least won’t admit) how this video was created, but they don’t appear to be afraid of the alleged ghoul stalking their hallways. The school’s Halloween celebration is going on as scheduled and several faculty members dressed up for the occasion, including one person who will roam the hallways as a ghost:

School security camera captures creepy footage — is it a ghost?

An Irish school might have some ghosts among its student body.

Surveillance cameras captured some spooky happenings in a hallway at 3 a.m. on Oct. 1 at Deerpark CBS school in Cork, Ireland, just a few weeks before Halloween.

Lockers shake, papers fly, doors slam and a plastic sign on the floor flops over without a person in sight.

Upon first seeing the footage, Deerpark deputy principal Aaron Wolfe sent the clip to principal Kevin Barry in disbelief.

"We couldn’t understand how this had occurred,'' Wolfe told TODAY in an email. "If it is a prank, it’s very well done!"

Wolfe came to the school last year and was informed by staff of strange happenings in the past, from hallways being unnaturally cold to sounds of crying.

"Many people have contacted us with stories about the school being haunted,'' he said.

Luckily the school doesn't have any sort of creepy backstory that could suggest paranormal activity.

"The school is built on a site known as Green Gallows ,'' Wolfe said. "In the 19th century, criminals were hanged here. We only found that out on Monday. The pub nearby is actually called the Gallows."

There is a Halloween event at the school coming up called "Fearpark,'' leaving the possibility that it was a prank.

"People have suggested that we’ve used a green screen, or edited someone out,'' Wolfe said. "I wish our school had these types of resources. Others have suggested that fishing line is used. I don’t see how fishing line could open the locker because the locker doors don’t stay closed unless the latch on it is turned.

"Also, the corridor is on the first floor and the window there behind the locker doesn’t open. However, anything is possible."

Wolfe doesn't believe the school is haunted, but he may want to stay out of dark hallways late at night before Halloween.

"A medium has contacted us to say that something will happen to me one night that will make me a believer!" he said.

Haunted School Now Has Second Video Of Angry Ghost Trashing A Hall

By Dave Basner

November 13, 2017

Last month, a school in Ireland posted security cam footage of what they claimed was an angry ghost trashing a hallway. The malevolent force threw books out of a locker and violently knocked over a "Wet Floor" sign.  

The clip was viewed millions of times and most people were torn over if it was real, though Snopes.com explained why they felt it wasn't.

Well there's now a new video from the school that shows a second "paranormal" event - this one with a bag flying off some lockers, a poster coming off a wall and chairs moving on their own. 

Once again, some people are claiming it's fake and just edited video but others believe the school really is haunted. What do you think?

Prunella and the Haunted Locker

" Prunella and the Haunted Locker " is the second half of the eighth episode in the thirteenth season of Arthur .

  • 4.1 Episode connections
  • 4.2 Cultural references
  • 5.1 Screenshots
  • 6 References

Summary [ ]

Prunella is assigned a new school locker, which is rumored to be haunted! [1]

The episode starts as a game show called Face Your Fear, hosted by Brain . There are three contestants ( Buster , D.W. , and Prunella ), and the objective is to state your worst fear and face it on camera. A fear-o-meter then judges your reaction on a scale of one to ten. Buster goes first, stating his fear of poached eggs. A covered platter suddenly lowers from the ceiling and Buster screams a 7.5, but he ends up finishing them. D.W. is next, fearing a made up creature (half octopus, half kitten). Brain says her fear is fake, and he walks away, leaving her to think of another fear. Then Brain leads Prunella to a backstage curtain covering her fear. The curtain opens and Prunella screams loud enough to break the fear-o-meter. Her greatest fear turns out to be a normal school locker. Buster ends the introduction with, "You'll see why."

Prunella goes to school one morning, and notices that her locker door is missing. Principal Haney explains that it has to be repaired and she will be using locker number 237 temporarily until hers is fixed.

Fern overhears this, and tells Prunella a story about locker 237's previous owner: a Lakewood student from the 1950s named Jack Murphy , whose smelly locker gave him bad luck and eventually made him disappear.

Prunella tells Fern she does not believe the story, and she goes to the locker anyway. Locker 237 stands alone at the back of a maintenance hallway. It looks extremely old and dirty, but Prunella puts her stuff in it anyway, scoffing at Fern's story.

At recess that day, Prunella collects a popsicle stick from Buster for her shop project, which is due tomorrow: a model of the Eiffel Tower . Francine suddenly jumps in to get a picture of Prunella for a story about the haunted locker in the school newspaper.

Prunella storms off, angry at Francine for believing the story. After school that day, Prunella notices that her temporary locker smells like onions, but she pretends she just imagined it and heads home .

Marina helps Prunella with her shop project that afternoon, but Prunella stops working and starts to worry about the haunted locker. She asks her crystal ball if any bad luck will come because of it, but knocks the ball over, wrecking the popsicle tower.

Shop class is cancelled the next day, and Prunella is very upset because she had to stay up late to repair her project. When she gets to locker 237, she smells cabbage and hears laughing.

Prunella starts to get nervous about the locker, and decides not to store her popsicle tower in it. She carries the project with her all day, and various mishaps cause it to get crushed.

At home that night, Prunella gets a call from Francine. Francine no longer believes Fern's story, because she found what she thinks is locker 237's original owner: a boy from the 1970s named Jay Mayberry . Prunella is initially relieved, but gets worried when the school records say that Jay only attended the school for one year.

She has a dream that night about locker 237 coming alive and eating her, along with her shop class project, but Marina convinces Prunella to ignore it and face her fear the next morning. Now, the locker smells like apple pie, and Prunella hears more voices.

She nervously asks what the ghost wants, and hears "more salt!" as a reply. Confused, Prunella discovers a vent behind locker 237 that leads to the school kitchens. She talks to Mrs. MacGrady and realizes that she was just hearing voices from and smelling the food of the kitchen.

Francine updates her story, now titled "Prunella Unlocks Haunted Locker Mystery." It makes the front page of the paper and forces Fern to finally reveal that she made up the story of Jack Murphy, and there is no such person. However, the episode finishes with a swing seat moving by itself in time with a child's laughter.

Two Haunted Schools In MA Are True “Houses Of Horror”

  • Share on Facebook
  • Share on Twitter

Who would have thought that going to school would elicit paranormal activity. If you head out east in The Bay State, there is living proof that creatures from the great beyond are roaming through Boston's Emerson College as people have a scary bunch of stories to tell as people passed away tragically and they have made this campus their permanent home as they haunt this particular location on a daily basis.

Reports indicate that one Massachusetts town is rumored to have a hair raising tale of terror at the town's middle and high schools. It is believed that Marblehead sits on a so-called "hellmouth". Did you know they officially named this area via that "creepy" moniker during the colonial days, but government officials decided in changing the name to Marblehead.

The definition of a "hellmouth" : a property representing the entrance of Hades. So, what does that mean? It is a window that lets in both negative and positive spiritual energy. There are also reports of UFO sightings in Marblehead's Middle School as aliens from outer space have set up home base in that Bay State vicinity

The Middle School girls' locker room is also rumored to be haunted by a man that passed away in a motorcycle accident. There were factual reports of UFOs over the school plus the story and a photo made headlines in their local newspaper.

Many local residents say that ghosts and UFOs are not as creepy, but recent events state the Town of Marblehead is more terrifying is what goes on at the High School as reports indicate the high school was built on an ancient burial ground and eyewitnesses can attest they have seen poltergeists, apparitions, orbs, a grey lady and the mystique of not being wanted roams across the hallways. Proceed with caution if you enter an elevator as maintenance records state they don't work properly, and how can anyone explain how the building's fire alarms randomly go off. If you ask me, this is what you call "a surreal experience".

BOTTOM LINE: Could it be we can see a major motion picture on this subject matter. Your guess is as good as mine! Stay tuned!

Ghosts of Rivera High School (Brownsville, TX)

This legend comes to us from Rivera High School located along the border of the South Most region of Texas, Brownsville.  Locals claim to have heard the residual screams of a teenage girl who was murdered there.

“A girl was said to have been murdered in the shower stalls of the girls locker room.  On late practices Students sometimes heard the showers go off and what looked like liquid pouring down the drain, and you could hear a blood curdling scream that would make them run out in a heartbeat.

17b3490990e620883b1d1de22f0ec299

And even the volleyball coach said when he was painting the raider logo on the wall he heard the scream and as if someone was being banged against the lockers. In last stall, the toilet flushes on its own numerous times. When you’re alone in the locker room slamming of lockers can sometimes be heard.” – anonymous

In addition to the teenage girl, there is another sighting of a teenage boy who died from a heart attack after a basketball game.  Janitors and night crew claim to have seen and heard his spirit bouncing a basketball in the hallways as they worked.

I went to rivera and never heard anything. I remember the basket ball player that had a heart attack and died in the ambulance and coach Ward that died in his house and Carla Villarreal that was murdered but not at the school.

' src=

My sister was a practical joker. I can assure you she would not be haunting but I wouldn’t be surprised is she’d be pranking. However I would like to think that she is resting in peace, and not so much haunting school grounds. Thank you for keeping her memory alive, but I hope they are good memories because my sister was a very loving soul♡

' src=

Thank you, Miss Brianda Campos 🙂

' src=

Sorry I meant 1994 and 1995

Bs I attended Rivera in 2004 and 2005 never heard such noices or screams or stories about any ghosts.

' src=

El Carpintero is really a ghost, les guste o no les guste

' src=

So a student and a coach died of a heart attack?

' src=

I went to Rivera High School. I personally also heard the basketball. I was in Drama and Choir and was often there late at night…. The one in lockeroom however, I never even heard about. No murder ever happened on school grounds. But a young female student , was murdered a mile or two from the school itself. Carla, was killed and her body found on Travis Road when it was desolate. Now its an urban road.

' src=

That is true. That road is haunted – ! Travis road is a scary road at night. I had seen a strange shape lurking in the shadows. Awkward shape almost like a monkey walking. Disturbing.

' src=

These stories are not true. I graduated from Rivera High School class of 1994. None of this ever happened..

' src=

I went to rivera the second year it opened never heard of the story of the girl in the shower

' src=

I just graduated from rivera and never in my life did I hear these stories

' src=

I was on the basketball team that was going to play the night that kid died. He was from M.M.A. (Marine Military Academy) and sufferred a massive heart attack and died on the spot on the basketball court. We played a tournament that weekend and dedicated the trophy to the boy’s mother.

' src=

Well I’ve heard the basket ball I’ve heard the locker room story the band hall but has anyone ever heard about the one in the photo shop class well aka the year book class

' src=

I currently work at Rivera HS and have heard about these stories. I also heard that the presence of a Rivera coach that died during the school’s early years can also be felt in the Gym #3 area and the weight lifting room.

' src=

F I worked at Rivera HS for 2 years. I was an academic counselor about 6 years ago. As a counselor, I used to stay late to finish paperwork twice or three times a week. The custodians would tell us to turn on a radio or to just play music so we wouldn’t hear the strange sounds down the hall. I never saw or heard anything out of the ordinary, but I did used to feel strange as if someone was watching me from afar.

' src=

I went to Rivera from 2000-2004 and never heard any of this.. I was in basketball and band so yeah nope

Really but you do know the stories? I also was there 2000-2004

' src=

I want to Rivera school ..I was there from 92-95 and never heard nothing like this. …my parents live not even 10 minutes away..and never heard nothing. …

' src=

I was a cheerleader when the boy died it was 1990 or 1991…it was before the game during warm-ups. They didn’t pronounce him dead in the gym and kept doing CPR until he was in the ambulance.

' src=

I went to Rivera but I’ve never heard the story about the girl in the locker room. When I was there I did hear a lot of people talk about the basketball boy.

' src=

I have worked in Rivera High for last 25 years and can asure you all there has never been a murder case at that campus,,,,

What about suicides?

' src=

The story about the boy who died from cardiac arrest at a basketball game is true, and so are the sounds heard by evening custodians of the bouncing ball in the gym and adjacent hall. That’s been going on for over twenty years. There was never a murder in the building, so the screaming and random toilet flushing is false. I’ve worked there for 20+ years.

' src=

My father was actually the assistant principal for years. As a little girl I grew up at Rivera and was there practically everyday since my dad was a single father. I later attended the school and can confirm yes, a boy did pass from a cardiac arrest during a game. That is true, however the locker room is an urban legend and no girl passing in the locker room can be confirmed. Now I did however hear the stories and ace heard of many weird things happening. I never experienced these but asked the coatches time to time if things happened and they did say “yes all the time”. Who knows if this was to frighten freshman or what the situation is but its intresting to hear the stories once again 🙂

' src=

I lived in Brownsville, 40 some years of my life and I had not heard of these deaths except for one that happened in that area but it was down a dirt road, 2 story white house where it was bullet ridden and they put the bodies in the car and put the car next to the house on a vacant land and set it on fire, but like I said never heard anything like that at Rivera High School, this is the first

And I believe that happened somewhere in the late 70’s I believe.

River High School wasntneven built in the 70s….. not until the early 90s

' src=

i believe so ..when i when with my school to play volleyball games i used to get so scare and i knew i was not crazy i heard noises off some one screaming for help in the girls locker room so i do believe this,im talking abt the yr 1999

I went to Rivera. Heard the scream in the locker room but the basketball on the gym court is said to be that soul of one of the male coaches. Whoever went to Rivera in the mid 90,s will know who I am talking about. He loved playing basketball all the time but we lost him unfortunately to a heart attack on a school day😞

Prunella and the Haunted Locker

" Prunella and the Haunted Locker " is the second half of the eighth episode in the thirteenth season of Arthur .

  • 4.3 Cultural references
  • 6 References

Summary [ edit ]

Prunella is assigned a new school locker, which is rumored to be haunted! [1]

Plot [ edit ]

The episode starts as a game show called Face Your Fear, hosted by Brain . There are three contestants ( Buster , D.W. , Prunella ), and the objective is to state your worst fear and face it on camera. A fear-o-meter then judges your reaction on a scale of one to ten. Buster goes first, stating his fear of poached eggs. A covered platter suddenly lowers from the ceiling and Buster screams a 7.5, but he ends up finishing them. D.W. is next, fearing a made up creature (half octopus, half kitten). Brain says her fear is fake, and he walks away leaving her to think of another fear. Then Brain leads Prunella to a backstage curtain covering her fear. The curtain opens and Prunella screams loud enough to break the fear-o-meter. Her greatest fear turns out to be a normal school locker. Buster ends the introduction by saying, "You'll see why."

Prunella goes to school one morning, and notices that her locker door is missing. Principal Haney explains that it has to be repaired and she'll be using locker number 237 temporarily until hers is fixed.

Fern overhears this, and tells Prunella a story about locker 237's previous owner: a Lakewood student from the 1950s named Jack Murphy , whose smelly locker gave him bad luck and eventually made him disappear.

Prunella tells Fern she doesn't believe the story, and she goes to the locker anyway. Locker 237 stands alone at the back of a maintenance hallway. It looks extremely old and dirty, but Prunella puts her stuff in it anyway, scoffing at Fern's story.

At recess that day, Prunella collects a popsicle stick from Buster for her shop project, which is due tomorrow: a model of the Eiffel Tower. Francine suddenly jumps in to get a picture of Prunella for a story about the haunted locker in the school newspaper.

Prunella storms off, angry at Francine for believing the story. After school that day, Prunella notices that her temporary locker smells like onions, but she pretends she just imagined it and heads home.

Marina helps Prunella with her shop project that afternoon, but Prunella stops working and starts to worry about the haunted locker. She asks her crystal ball if any bad luck will come because of it, but knocks the ball over, wrecking the popsicle tower.

Shop class is cancelled the next day, and Prunella is very upset because she had to stay up late to repair her project. When she gets to locker 237, she smells cabbage and hears laughing.

Prunella starts to get nervous about the locker, and decides not to store her popsicle tower in it. She carries the project with her all day, and various mishaps cause it to get crushed.

At home that night, Prunella gets a call from Francine. Francine no longer believes Fern's story, because she found what she thinks is locker 237's original owner: a boy from the 1970s named Jay Mayberry . Prunella is initially relieved, but gets worried when the school records say that Jay only attended the school for one year.

She has a dream that night about locker 237 coming alive and eating her, along with her shop class project, but Marina convinces Prunella to ignore it and face her fear the next morning. Now the locker smells like apple pie, and Prunella hears more voices.

She nervously asks what the ghost wants, and hears "more salt!" as a reply. Confused, Prunella discovers a vent behind locker 237 that leads to the school kitchens. She talks to Mrs. MacGrady and realizes that she was just hearing voices from and smelling the food of the kitchen.

Francine updates her story, now titled "Prunella Unlocks Haunted Locker Mystery." It makes the front page of the paper and forces Fern to finally reveal that she made up the story of Jack Murphy, and there is no such person. However, the episode finishes with a swing seat moving by itself in time with a child's laughter.

Ghosts? Video from inside school shows activity long after students have gone

CORK CITY, Ireland (STORYFUL) - Surveillance video inside a school in Cork City, Ireland appears to show some activity long after the students have gone.

Deerpark Christian Brothers School (CBS) posted the video on YouTube with the caption, "Ghost caught on camera?"

The video, which has more than five million views and counting, shows lockers opening and closing, lockers shaking, books flying out of lockers, and the wet floor sign flipping and flying across the floor.

"The school is quite a scary building and some people let their imaginations run away with them," said self-proclaimed skeptic Aaron Wolfe, the school's deputy principal.

Students complain of noises and things going missing, along with lights going on and off at night and teachers say they've had to relock their doors, Wolfe said.

The school sits in an area rich with history, Wolfe said. The institution was founded in 1828 and the school was located to its current spot in 1968.

Wolfe says during the penal times and during the Irish Famine, the area where the school sits was the location of the gallows and many people were hanged there. "We're also very close to the famine work house (which is now a hospital) - so there's a lot of history in the area," Wolfe said.

However, he says he doesn't believe any of it, in regard to what was found on video. "I just don't know how anyone could have pulled it off!" he said.

He did, however, hint that it just may have something to do with an upcoming event at the school, called Fearpark. The night of October 29 the school will be open to the public, who will be able “to see if it’s really haunted after all.”

A brick is not flush with the rest of the wall, seen Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, at Bill Reed Middle school in downtown Loveland. Legend says that a bricklayer working to build the school was trapped behind the wall and tried to tap the brick out to escape.The school is giving haunted tours to raise money for a heart sculpture for the school's 100th anniversary celebration.

Arnold Jahnke, principal at Bill Reed Middle School, talks about the legend of the "bloody handprints" in the boiler room Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, at the school in downtown Loveland. The school is giving haunted tours highlighting the ghost stories to raise money to pay for a heart sculpture for the school's 100th anniversary celebration.

Pamela Johnson

What: Haunted tours of Bill Reed Middle School as well as crafts, games, face painting and more to raise money for a heart sculpture for the school’s 100th anniversary celebration in the spring.

When: 5-7 p.m. Oct. 28, a Saturday.

Where: Bill Reed Middle School, 370 W. Fourth St.

Cost: $1 per person or $5 per family.

There’s the hand-shaped stain that won’t wash away on the walls of the boiler room at Bill Reed Middle School in downtown Loveland.

And the random brick in the southwest staircase that looks as though it was pushed a half an inch out from behind the wall.

And the unexplained sounds, the shades that close without assistance and the lights that appear to illuminate on their own.

The history of the 100-year-old school is filled with legends and ghost stories, and later this month, school officials are embracing that haunted folklore to raise money for a heart sculpture that will be unveiled at the school’s 100th anniversary celebration in the spring.

On Oct. 28, the Saturday before Halloween, Bill Reed Middle School will open its doors to the community, for $1 per person or $5 per family, for an evening of activities that include games, crafts, a showing of the movie “Twilight” along with ghost stories and ghost tours of the school.

Current and former teachers as well as former students will lead the tours through the school to the different sites that are said to be haunted. They will tell their own tales of the different sounds and spooky occurrences and will spin yarns passed down across the decades.

One stop is at the lucky brick, which juts out about a half an inch further than all the other bricks on the staircase wall. It’s become a tradition that, every year, students at the school touch the brick for luck.

But the legend behind the brick is a tale of anything but luck, the story of a bricklayer trapped behind the wall, trying to push his way free but not quite making it.

Another spooky story is waiting in the bomb shelter, which was built beneath the school when it was constructed around World War I. Though the tours cannot venture into the bomb shelter for safety reasons, participants will get a peek into the area as well as the tale of young students trapped in there during Christmas vacation.

Nearby is the stain on the wall of the boiler room that looks like handprints.

“The legend is that no matter how many times we wash it off, the hands reappear,” said Arnold Jahnke, principal of Bill Reed.

These different stories are shared generation after generation by students and teachers at the school, which is embracing its haunted history as the faculty, students and alumni celebrate 100 years of education within the school.

“You’ve got to have fun and embrace it,” Jahnke said. “Our community absolutely embraces the history of Bill Reed.”

Moscow’s urban legends: Ghosts, mutant rats under the Metro

Construction of Fonvizinskaya metro station on the Lyublinsko-Dmitriyevskaya Line in Moscow

Construction of Fonvizinskaya metro station on the Lyublinsko-Dmitriyevskaya Line in Moscow

Among the world's most famous urban legends is about alligators allegedly living in New York City's sewer system. The Russians do not lag behind the Americans in terms of the popular imagination. Some see giant rats in the metro, while others talk about ghosts and the "mutagenic radiation" of the Ostankino television tower.

The mysteries of the metro

When it comes to rumours about the Moscow subway , truth is closely intertwined with fiction. Even officials do not deny that there are classified military and government lines under the capital – the so-called "Metro-2.”

That there are classified military and government lines under the capital – the so-called "Metro-2” – is not denied even by some officials. Photo: Construction of Fonvizinskaya metro station on the Lyublinsko-Dmitriyevskaya Line in Moscow. Source: Vitaliy Belousov/RIA Novosti

Enthusiasts have, however, been unsuccessfully trying to find more accurate information for years. Is there one line there or an entire system? Or is there an underground city for 15,000 people? Typical for an urban legend, there are a thousand versions of this story. They are united by an aura of secrecy and danger.

"It was really scary to hear the sound of tarpaulin boots near the alleged entrance to Metro-2," said Konstantin, one of Moscow’s community of “diggers,” or enthusiasts who explore subterranean bunkers, wells, tunnels and other facilities. "Is it still guarded by the KGB men, or something?"

Another Moscow resident claims her digger friend was allegedly shot at by special services while searching for Metro-2. The difficult-to-verify stories by the diggers about their adventures at the closed facility add to people's curiosity.

"My grandmother told me about Metro-2 in my childhood, and then about mutant rats," recalls Moscow resident Valeria. In the 1990s, tabloids publicized stories about giant rats living in the tunnels.

So could Splinter from " Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles " find company in the Moscow catacombs? "It's all science: Radiation from rocks must cause mutations in rats," says Pavel, also from Moscow. "But they live in technical rooms, so you can't see them."

Skeptics say that the crying comes from late-working employees of the Tunisian embassy: the commissar's house is now occupied by a diplomatic mission. Source: Lori/Legion-Media

On the surface

Not only are the underground bunkers of the Soviet elite shrouded in legend, but also fairly earthly structures, such as the home of Lavrenty Beria, the USSR People's Commissar for State Security and Stalin's right-hand man.

During interrogation in 1953, Beria confessed to abducting and raping dozens of women, but the authenticity of these papers is still being debated (Beria was removed by Khrushchev in a power struggle, and the documents could have been falsified after the execution of this dangerous rival).

But the image of the sadistic Beria was firmly imprinted on the popular mind, and his house in Moscow is surrounded by dark rumours. Allegedly, an invisible car rolls on Malaya Nikitskaya Ulitsa at midnight, with its old motor rumbling. Footsteps are heard, and Beria's ghost comes to his house for violent pleasures: curious pedestrians will soon even hear a woman crying from behind the walls.

Skeptics will say that the crying comes from late-working employees of the Tunisian embassy (the commissar's house is now occupied by a diplomatic mission), but this version is much more boring, even though probably the truth.

Napoleonic soldiers and a 500-year-old witch

It is not only the city centre where legends abound.

Many people believe that hundreds of soldiers from Napoleon’s army were buried in the hills of Peredelkino, a holiday village in the outskirts of Moscow, in 1812. Paranormal enthusiasts imbue the mounds with mystical qualities, believing that electronics go haywire and travellers disappear there.

The 500-year-old witch is believed to have predicted the high-profile murder of well-known TV journalist Vlad Listyev and a fire at Ostankino in 2000. Photo: A lightning over the Ostankino TV tower in Moscow. Source: Denis Murin/RIA Novosti

In reality, however, it is likely that there are no mass graves there.

"After the difficult war with Napoleon, peasants saw its echoes everywhere, so this is an old myth," researchers of the Museum of Moscow told RIR. "In the 19th century, archaeologists excavated Slavic mounds from the 10 th and 11 th centuries. But the inhabitants of the surrounding villages still considered them to be the graves of French soldiers."

The Ostankino neighbourhood, where Europe's highest TV tower is located, is also mythologized. It is allegedly haunted by the ghost of an old woman, who was murdered in the 16 th century. Now she walks around and predicts disasters.

The 500-year-old witch is believed to have predicted the high-profile murder of well-known TV journalist Vlad Listyev and a fire at Ostankino in 2000. Sometimes these stories are complemented by vivid details – for example, the furniture in Listyev's office was allegedly gnawed after his death by animals, mutated by the tower's radiation.

Then there are less bloody rumours: for example, one about a bulldozer embedded by builders in the TV centre's building by mistake. Yana Sidorova, the author of a study about the legends of Ostankino, says the TV centre's staff do not really believe in these sorts of stories, but are quite happy to spread them.

  • Get some brief respite from the crowded streets at Gorky Park. Moscow's main public park is located at the center of the city, covering over 110 acres along the Moskva River. Challenge your fellow travelers to a game of volleyball, or peruse the park's modern art exhibitions. 
  • Go for a romantic ramble with a loved one through the Apothecary Garden. Moscow University's botanical gardens date back to the 18th century and are meticulously laid out, featuring exotic flora from across the globe.

What to do alone in Moscow

The best souvenirs in Moscow

With a unique culture and long history, you'll find plenty of interesting souvenirs to pick up during your travels to Moscow.

Another great souvenir you can pick up is a fur hat to keep you warm during your vacation and when you return home. 

If you're looking to splash out on something special, pick up an ornate samovar, a type of traditional kettle dating back to the 18th century. Moscow also has plenty of culinary treats that you might want to buy as gifts for folks back home.
