REAL GHOST STORIES?!

 

          Don't you love real life ghost stories . . . or would that be “real dead ghost stories”?!

          So Maven is mixing and matching everything from real and possibly faked photos to a documentary that Maven saw quite some years ago.  It does mix fact with movies made in Hollywood but . . . the host is John Carradine and it’s great fun, especially for Hollywood!

          Maven also has a link to a calendar, HALLOWEEN 2011: Movies to Watch, for a month full of goodies, most of which just might bewitch you and yours for Halloween.

          There is also a link to a series of pictures that may be ghostly in origin:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6trH81xpko

 

There is one part at about 2:00 minutes in of something floating around what Maven thinks was a car impound.  Maven saw this clip debunked on some show back in the 90s on some show but . . . .  The rest are still interesting to look and wonder . . . ?!?!?!?!
