Good, believable videos of ghosts are the "Holy Grail" of ghost investigation. Every ghost hunter wants to record them, but they are extremely difficult to get. That is why good, compelling ghost videos are so rare. Here is a gallery of some of those videos. Even so, we have to be cautious when viewing them. Even the eye of the camera can be fooled, and fakes can be created through digital manipulation. Yet these videos rank high as being authentic and truly mysterious. They are the best ghost videos ever taken.

Tom Underwood was visiting the Gettysburg Battlefield in 2001 with his family when he recorded this video at Triangular Field. It is considered by many to be perhaps the best, most compelling ghost video ever recorded. It appears to show semi-transparent figures walking through the woods. They seem to be walking uphill, even though the land there is currently flat. It has been noted that the actions of the figures seem to repeat themselves, indicating that this may be a residual haunting -- a kind of recording on the environment. Some think the figures look like soldiers in gray Confederate uniforms.

Watch the Video

This video was shot on December 31, 2008 in Colonial Park Cemetery, Savannah Georgia by 17-year-old Jesse Greathouse. It shows what appears to be a small child running in the distance in the cemetery. He appears gray, either due to the lighting or his clothing. He then appears to leap into a tree, then drop down and vanish. Jesse says he did not manipulate the tape in any way, and a special-effects expert says that it doesn't look like the video was faked.

Watch the Video

This video appears to have been made by a kid who was documenting his house for his own kid reasons. Then, unexpectedly, a shadow person seems to cross the scene. This scares the kid and the video ends. It's interesting in that the shadow form maintains its size and shape as it crosses the field of view. If it were a real shadow, its size and shape would have changed as it receded against the objects in the background of the open doorway.

Security personnel at Disneyland noticed something unusual on their surveillance cameras one night. So they replayed the video recording and shot their monitors with a home video camera. What we see is a transparent figure taking a walk through the Disneyland ground, even right through a closed metal gate at one point and, at the end, across some water. It's interesting that the figure was captured in succession by multiple camera, allowing us to follow its movements.

The strange floating balls of light in this video taken by Steve Lee in the mid-1990s have yet to be explained. Many video and special effects experts have been stumped by this footage. According to an article by Dennis William Hauck, the family was experiencing other haunting activity at the time. Is this an artifact of a haunting or is this some as-yet-unexplained natural phenomenon, such as ball lighting?

This video was recorded by a ghost hunting group on an investigation. As they approach the doorway to the stairs, a ghostly figure (possibly a woman in white) quickly crosses the doorway. There is no reaction from the investigators, as if they did not see the figure at the time.

Watch the Video

There are no apparitions in this surveillance video, but we do see a chair and table being moved by unknown, unseen forces. It was taken in 2014 at the Brookside Theatre in Romford, England. by a closed-circuit camera in the early hours of a Sunday morning. At 12 seconds into the video, a chair in the third row on the right hand side moves toward the camera, and then the table at bottom left moves at the 28 second mark.

"We've had so many strange things happen over the years but this has to be the freakiest," said theatre manager, Jai Sepple. "When I looked back at the CCTV, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry!"
