- Well, I'm on my way home from settlement

on the house I bought at a sheriff's sale.

How do I turn this thing around?

And this is a good sign

that this was a good

decision to get this house

because it was supposed

to be raining today

and as you can see it's bright and sunny.

It was a good deal,

truth is I would have paid

anything to get this house.

Here we are.

Not bad for a sheriff's sale, huh?

The house has four

bedrooms, five bathrooms,

a basement, so I've been

told, I've never been inside,

but the upkeep on the house looks good,

although the lawn could use some work.

Somebody's been cutting it but not often

and it looks like nobody told

the Atlantic City Press

to stop delivering.

So I'm going to shut this

off and clean this up.

Oh come on.

Great, the electric's out.

Well obviously the previous

owners were a religious bunch.

But why would they leave all their stuff?

There's probably a couple thousand dollars

worth of stuff in here I can sell.

And they had dogs, they

even left the dog pillows.

That's the oldest looking

Bible I've ever seen.

Oh well, I better call

the electric company,

it's Friday, I don't want to

be without power all weekend.

I called the electric company

and they said they'll be

able to get power on before,

hang on a second, before

the end of the day.

So I'm going to go out

and get something to eat

but first I want to get

this stuff out of here.

I can't do anything with

this house that I want to

with all this stuff in here.

I'm on my way back from dinner

and hopefully the electric company

has lived up to their promise of

getting power turned back on in the house.

Man, this is a long road.

Wait a second, I can't

tell because of the car,

wait, I think I see lights.

I think I see lights.

Oh I definitely see lights.

Atlantic City Electric, you're the best.

Oh, you guys did me a solid.

Look at this place.



Let me grab this, sorry

if the picture's shaky.

Now you're probably

wondering why I'm filming

every second of my life here.

First of all, I want you to

be able to see the house I got

and it's creepy quiet out here.

Well it's locked up tight.

I want to take and show ya,

I'm going to turn on the light

on the camera now so you can see,

but I want to take and show

you why I'm filming everything.

It'll be quite clear in a minute.

Let me, oh good.

Before I bought this house,

when you're bidding on a

house at a sheriff's sale

you're now allowed to go inside.

So you have to bid on it cold.

So I'm banking the inside

of this place is great

but it doesn't matter anyway

because I would of bought

this house either way

and you're about to see why.

Before I put a bid in I didn't come in

and walk the property to see

how it looked back here and all,

make sure there wasn't anything weird.

Well I found something weird

and this is what made

me want this location.

Way back here in the creepy

woods I found something

and you're about to see it.

Can you see that hanging up in the tree?

That's witchcraft my

friends, satanic, witchcraft,

either way that's a pentagram.

So somewhere around here

and I'm going to set this

camera up on the tripod

so I apologize if it shakes

and I'm going to try to hold

this camera as high as I can

so you can see it,

is that pentagram, so somewhere down here

is something it's marking.

What the hell was that?

Oh wait a second, what is this?

This is a cross.

This is a blank stone.

See this?

I'm going to take this inside, open it up.

I want to give everybody

a tour of the home

but first I want to take a

look and see what this is.

What the hell's all this food go?

How old is this sh*t?

Anyway, turn some lights on here.

Now I'm hoping, I'm

hoping to get this setup

so that you can see me and it.

Can you?

It's wet, muddy,

and this looks like it

was sealed on here in wax.

Anybody read, I don't know what that says.

Alright, you ready for the big reveal?

It's a doll.

It's a doll, an old, creep doll

and there was a cross

buried in there with it,

but here's something really strange.

I don't know if you can see this or not

but burned in, like almost

burned in like ashes,

almost like the Shroud of Turin,

in the cloth it was wrapped

in is the outline of the doll

in like ash, it's burned

in, it doesn't come off.

Anyway, can you look at

this creepy, little b*tch.

Well, I'm going to leave

you, don't go nowhere's.

Tomorrow I'm going to try to

figure out what your story is,

look around a little bit,

but for the mean time,

it's been a long day.

So if y'all don't mind

I'm going to go to bed.

Alright I don't if you can hear that

but someone's playing the

piano in the other room.



Is anybody in here?

It's real cold over here.

I don't know if you can see the

goosebumps on my arms or not

but I don't remember

this piano being open.


Where's the doll?

What the f***?

What the?

What the hell is going on?

I don't know what the f*** is going on.

The rest of the night it was quiet

but I still didn't get

much sleep last night.

How the f*** did that get over there?

What the f***?


Is this thing moving on its own

or is something moving it?

I've been video taping everything,

hoping to capture whatever's

going on in this house,

which is strange,

but it's also very intriguing.

So, I'm not saying I'm upset by it,

I'm saying that it's intriguing

and I'm dying to learn more.

Now, this little thing here,

I don't know if she's moving on her own

or something's moving her around,

but I noticed something when I went back

to look at what I've recorded so far.

You can't normally see this in the daytime

but at night you can see it

and it wasn't until I looked

at the footage that I realized

what I discovered was these

cameras that are everywhere.

The IR head that's on

the front of that here,

that circle, that ring,

it looks like the camera's turned off

but at night it's lit up red.

So and they're everywhere.

They're here, they're on the front porch,

they're in the bedrooms, they're in the,

well the one in the basement isn't working

but they're everywhere.

So it began to occur to me

that I should disconnect,

where the,

you saw that doll was right there.

I have no idea where it went to

but that's one of the reasons,

I was initially, there's

a camera in the foyer,

there's cameras outside.

See those cameras up there

and I began to think

that maybe I can capture

if this doll's, I was

going to go unplug them all

but then I thought that

perhaps somewhere in this house

there's a recorder that they go to

that I'll look around for

and if I can find it,

I might be able to see

footage on those cameras that shows

whether or not this doll

is moving on its own

or if it's being moved by,

that's exactly what I'm talking about.

I also took and I've

had, I ordered a package

that should be coming today, hopefully,

and it's got some materials in it
