5 Witches Caught On Tape & Spotted In Real Life!
Society’s understanding of witchcraft is strange and complex, with the fear and persecution of witches in early America giving way to acceptance, fascination and sex appeal in modern times. Yet the fairy-tale image of spell-casting hags on broomsticks is still deeply embedded in our culture – and not every witch is as friendly as that damsel from your neighborhood hippie store. Here are 5 Witches Caught On Camera & Spotted In Real Life that might spark your curiosity, shock your senses, or seriously creep you out.
5. The Mexican Flying Witches
In 2007, conspicuously around Halloween, a Spanish news network released video of what were thought by local authorities to be genuine flying witches in a remote village in Mexico. The video footage shows mysterious, hunched figures flying in the air and oddly traversing a grassy hillside. Police officer Gerardo Garza claimed he saw a creature dressed in black, with giant claws inhabiting a nearby abandoned house near a graveyard. Soon Officer Garza discovered two humanoid creatures flying in circles around the cemetery stones. Another badly shaken officer received medical treatment after an encounter with another creature, who he described as a grotesque, black-eyed woman wearing a pointy hat.
4. Bridget Cleary
Many may be familiar with the folk song named after Bridget Cleary, but not everyone knows the real life tragedy behind her legend. A seamstress living in Ireland in the late 19th century, Bridget fell ill sometime around her 26th birthday. Her superstitious and violent husband Michael became convinced that an evil fairy had imbued Bridget with the spirit of a shape-shifting witch. Michael invited his entire village to cast spells on his wife and attempt several creepy exorcisms, including chants, forcing herbs down her throat and even dousing her with urine.
Days after St. Patrick’s Day, Bridget’s body was found badly charred and mutilated.
3. The Witch’s Hut of Amherst
The Western Massachusetts Paranormal Video Society is dedicated to investigations of the supernatural throughout the Northeast. A spooky video submitted to the society just this year will give their investigators plenty to think about. In the clip, a man using a phone camera comes across what appears to be a diabolical witch’s hut, decorated with magic symbols such as bird bones, dead flowers, scary stick figures and a pentagram.
2. The Witch of Black Sabbath
Fans of rock music continue to be fascinated by the album cover of the first Black Sabbath LP, simply titled Black Sabbath. In the heavily-doctored photo, taken on the river Thames in Oxfordshire England, a spooky and green-glowing woman in robed clothing appears to be rising out of the water in front of a gothic cottage. According to which story you believe, the figure is a real-life witch, vocalist Ozzy Osbourne in drag, or according to guitarist Tony Iommi, a Black Sabbath fan and model named Louise who later showed up at a concert and politely introduced herself.
Though the band was soon accused of Satanism and witchcraft, bassist Geezer Butler has said that the group just wanted to make scary music after seeing a Boris Karloff movie…called Black Sabbath.
1. The Levitating Witch of Puerto Rico
In 2015, the video team from Ghost Shots released one of the spookiest police videos ever shot, filmed from an officer’s squad car in Puerto Rico at about 4 AM. In the clip, a mysterious young girl is dressed in red and black - and stands directly on top of a blazing fire. After a few tense moments, the apparent demi-goddess spreads her arms dramatically – and appears to levitate on the flames.One Youtuber joked that maybe she just wanted a hug. But we’re betting the officer on duty avoided any physical contact during his truly terrifying close encounter.
