vidTO: Ghost Haunts House on Wellesley

Halloween weekend is upon us. It's time for black cats, goblins, and zombies to hiss, howl, and moan in the darkness of the night. It's also time for a Toronto ghost story.

The house in this video (near Wellesley and Jarvis) is said to be haunted. Or is it? Please watch the video and see for yourself.

Is this video a staged hoax? Is the figure actually a person (perhaps a squatter)? Or is this the paranormal caught on film? Added to the blogTO YouTube Group a few weeks ago, it seems to be generating a bit of a buzz in greater YouTube land and a number of theories about its authenticity have been made. Regarless of whether or not it's real, it's spooky stuff.

Scary movies are fun. If you're not getting dressed up and heading out to one of many themed club events or a house party, consider stopping by the video store and renting a few of the scariest movies of all time.

For all your pumpkin carving class notes (including info on how to properly bury and deliver a eulogy on November 1st) check out Pumpkin Carving 101.

For costume brainstorming, I suggest a simple Google Image search and surf that comes up with a myriad of images that span the ridiculous to brilliant gamut.

Have a happy and safe Halloween weekend!
