What are the odds that when something scary happens to you, you'll have a camera rolling? In these creepy videos, that is exactly what happened--someone was filming when something frightening happened.

Scary Video Clip of a Haunting

Featured on the Travel Channel, this creepy video was taken by a man when the lights in the refrigerator began to flicker and then the light in the bathroom started flickering. The water faucet in the bathroom sink turned on by itself. After he turned off the water, the man heard something behind him. When he turned around, the door to the bathroom closed. Freaked out, he went outside to talk with his girlfriend about the strange activities he was witnessing. Despite his girlfriend begging him to stay out of the house, he ventured back inside to continue recording. He found the kitchen cabinets open and chairs overturned. Once more he left the house, but thought perhaps someone had broken into the house and was attempting to scare him. What happened when he returned for the second time will keep you awake at night!

Deerpark Poltergeist Caught on CCTV

You may have heard about the Deerpark Christian Brother's School official YouTube channel posting a CCTV footage of what appears to be an angry ghost making itself known.

Next, a locker open on its own and papers fly out and onto the floor. You can hear a clicking sound as though something is dripping or someone is tapping a cane on the floor. The final upset is the wet floor triangle that appears as though someone bats it away, sending it flying into the air. Is the video a well-staged hoax or did the school security camera capture something amazing?

True Scary Ghost Videos

Armed with all the technological tools at your disposal, you could also capture a ghostly image or encounter on video yourself. While it's true that modern ghost hunters use an array of tools to assist in their investigations of haunted places, there's also the element of the unknown that no amount of technology or knowledge can overcome.

Even with all of these tools, no one has yet been able to explain the phenomena of apparitions. Scientists cannot currently explain or understand all the hows and whys of ghosts. We're left feeling nervous, and in many cases scared, because a ghost or a haunting remains shrouded in mystery. Below are a few of the thousands of video clips you can find online. The creators of these videos claim that the clips are untouched, and a true rendering of real ghosts. You be the judge:
