For those of you who have been coming to GhostTheory for some time now, you know that I’ve been interested in the “polaroid ghost” case. As the story goes, there’s a house in the outskirts or Downtown Los Angeles that harbors some form of energy that can communicate with the home owners by writing on photographs. The energy or ghost, calls itself “Wright”.
I first learned about this phenomena back in my early teens while watching the FOX television show called Sightings. Years later, I find myself attending a gallery of the “Polaroids of the dead” during a Halloween exhibit in 2007. After viewing and examining the polaroids up close I could only conclude that if this was a hoax, it was a very elaborate hoax.
Almost two years later I sat down with John Matkowsky in his photo lab for an interview. With me, I had a list of questions that several GhostTheory readers had submitted to me so that John could address them. The interview went well and I was left with even more questions and uncertainties.
Last week, the investigative show Fact or Faked which airs on Syfy’s investigated the “ghostly polaroids” phenomena. Doing a thorough investigation with modern equipment, the team set out to debunk the claims of divine communication. Even though I personally don’t like the show as much, I have to give it to them and say that their controlled tests were pretty thought out and on the mark. They tried out some debunking methods that I’ve never even though of. Very well organized. You’ll be surprised at the outcome.
This is why for this installment of Friday Video I wanted to share it with you guys. You’ll appreciate the Fact or Fake team’s vehement effort. Especially Chi-Lan Lieu. I wonder if she’s single?
