I hate it when I’m all alone shooting a house that feels creepy.
You’re downstairs and you hear creaks upstairs. It’s windy outside, so it could easily be the weather acting on the infrastructure of the house.
You leave the room and door closes behind you. Hmm. Perhaps the hinge was installed wrong so it’s leaning towards the door.
There’s always an explanation for anything that’s creepy in this world.
But when you’re all alone in a house, sometimes you lose the ability to logically dissect a situation.
Fear is overwhelmingly strong in these cases.
I have a theory, where fear is extremely potent wave of energy that is emitted from your body. It tends to attract that which you fear the most.
You’re scared that someone might break-up with you, they break-up with you.
You’re scared of losing a basketball game, you lose the basketball game.
You’re afraid of making a mistake during a piano recital, your performance ends up being dry.
So when I hear things in a house, I’m not sure if fear is making me extra sensitive to normal creaks within the house …
Or that the negative energy (my fear) emitting from my body is causing the noise.
I remember watching a horror movie, where the family keeps on moving from one house to another assuming that the houses are all haunted.
In the end, they realize they’re son is the one that was possessed. They assume the problem was the house, but the problem resided inside their own family.
That could relate to me too. I’m the only common factor in all the haunted houses I’ve visited.
It could also relate to the next haunted house I shot.
