Poltergeist caught on camera in Coventry?

The Daily Mail, which delights in stories like this, has reported on an allegedly haunted house in Coventry – an exorcist has been called in and handed out crucifixes, a medium has told the family the house is a ‘portal’ for spookiness. Most interesting, there is ‘Paranormal Activity’-type video footage of a wardrobe door opening on its own and a plastic chair moving a few feet across a bedroom floor. To me, I’m afraid, the jerky movement of the chair exactly resembles simple stop-motion animation and I suspect this is how the ‘movement’ has taken place. Still, such things do go on as we all know, so maybe I should stop being a cynic. You can read the story, view the footage etc here: http://is.gd/scnkYq
