Paranormal

While this site mainly deals with the subject of “Nosferatu” and the 1922 movie in particular, I have decided to expand the site some and add a Paranormal page to it, due to certain circumstances.

The first is that I have always had a fascination with the paranormal, especially dealing with ghosts, spirits and more recently, EVP. Since the subject of the site is of the darker variety, I think the subject of the paranormal would mesh well with the site.

The second and more important reason is that back in March, my mother passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. As I had become a big fan of the Ghost Investigators Society (GIS) mainly through their many appearances on the Coast to Coast AM radio show, as well as becoming friends via Facebook with GIS member Brendan Cook, I had learned a lot about the EVP phenomenon that has become very popular in the U.S. over the past 20 years or so. This also led me to do some EVP research, as to whether I could contact my mother, assuming she was still here.

Well, very shortly after her death, I started the first of many (and continuing) EVP sessions in her home. In addition to recording many voices on my digital recorder, I have also experienced other phenomenon, including several intense smells that would permeate the house fairly suddenly and then vanish without a trace shortly after. I also experienced a ball of flashing light in the living room two nights after her death. Most impressive of all, the doors to the circuit box and washer/dryer alcove started opening and closing on their own at a near machine gun pace, with no explainable catalyst for doing so.

In light of all of this, I decided to post some of the EVP voices that I have recorded over the past 3+ months here, mainly for those who are curious about EVP and other paranormal phenomenon.

Below are some of the more listenable EVP’s that I have recorded. More will be posted over time.

NOTE: I HIGHLY recommend that you wear headphones on your PC speakers and have the volume on your speakers turned up very high, as all of these voices are generally very low in the noise level and will be difficult, if not impossible to hear using just PC speakers.

April 20, 2012


On this day, at around 1:40PM, several things occurred within a short space of time. As mentioned above, the circuit box and washer/dryer alcove started opening and closing on their own at a near machine gun pace, with no discernable reason for doing so. There were no planes or helicopters flying overhead, nor was there any loud car passing by that could have caused the the doors to vibrate. After I stopped both doors from slamming, I picked up my digital recorder and started an EVP session.

About four minutes into session, I asked the questions “Who you are” and “Where you are” as provocation for whatever was there, to respond. Right after the second question, I recorded a voice that sounded like a younger female. While the voice is very low in the noise level, it is quite discenable and speaks either two words or two syllables. After listening to it a few hundred times, I think it is saying, “heaven”. Of course, it could be anything.

After the major happenings on April 20, things seemed to quiet down some. I was not hearing or feeling much of any sort of unusual happenings for about a month. In late May, my sisters and I started going through my mother’s things in a big way. After we were done for the weekend, I decided I would do another EVP run-through. Mainly because I had not done one for a while and secondly, it is not unusual for spirits to exhibit haunting activity when the place they have grown accustomed to being in, is suddenly changed in any way. Not to mention, there was a slight feeling of unsettlement in the house that evening.

About four minutes into this session, I had asked the normal EVP questions, such as are you here, where are you, what is it like where you are at etc. After asking if she was present in the room, I received a very low voice, that sounds like it is responding “Yes”. (at :08 in the clip)

This EVP session garnered a few potential EVPs, including one which was extraordinary in the fact that it actually mentioned me by name. The first, and to my knowledge so far, the only one that has done so.

At 0:08 in this clip, just as I am finishing my sentence, you can hear a female voice (quite low in the noise, but discernable) say the word “Christopher”. After a pause of a few seconds, the voice then resumes, sounding like it says, “Can you hear me?”, at 0:12 in the clip.

Voice #1:

This was among the most amazing of my EVP sessions. For I recorded what sounded like four EVP voices in the space of about 82 seconds. Which is something very rare in EVP research, as sometimes you can record for 8 hours and pick up maybe one voice or nothing at all.

As mentioned above, at times since my mother’s death, there have been some strong smells that have appeared and disappeared within the house. In most cases, the smells have taken on the odor of onion or garlic. Other times, it has been a smell of death or decay that mirrored the smell that was quite strong in the house when I found my mother’s body. A very few times, it has been sort of a baby powder type of smell. (my mother was partial to the Shower to Shower powder).

About 80 seconds in this session, I had just asked the question. “Are you generating that smell?”. Right after that question, I received a very low, but quite distinct voice that sounds like it is saying, “Yes, that’s me.”(at :04 into the clip)

Voice #2:

Shortly after the previous voice, I was in the middle of narrating and explaining how I had picked up an EVP voice two days earlier, when right in the middle of my sentence, (at 00:14 in the clip) a voice popped out. This is the loudest and clearest voice I have recorded so far. However, I cannot make out what it says at all. To me, it does not sound English, but possibly French or Spanish. If you have any suggestions as to what it might be saying, please feel free to email me at webmaster@nosferatuscoffin.com.

Voice #3:

Shortly after the previous voice, I was giving a little more narration as to what had happened the two days before, when I had done my previous EVP session. As I was narrating, I was also itching a lot (which can be heard on the clip), as I had earlier been outside watering some plants and had been eaten alive by a lot of the biting bugs. After I mention this, you will hear a voice that sort of sounds it says “huh”. (at :11 in th clip) After this, I ask again if my mother was responsible for the smells. A voice, that sounds just like the one that said “huh”, speaks what sounds like it says “Yes” in response to the question.

This EVP session was fairly unremarkable. However, there was one voice that came through that was in direct answer to one of the questions I posed. (which is pretty common in EVP). I asked if my mother followed me as I went from one room to another. The voice pretty clearly comes through and sounds like it says, “I did.” in response.
