Let's not ruin the moment ..A king-size sheet though, right?
I dunno? .. I'm not editing it .. I quite like the creepy music they've used for now though. This is just the teaser trailer apparently.Where's the fookin' sound eh?
Will do buddy, hopefully their youtube channel will be up by the time it's finished, I'll post it here then.yeah. it's really great.
Please let us know when the full production emerges, Swift. I know you have several experiences to recount on it, and I very much look forward to something resembling a doco. Tell 'em to pull their finger out.

An enormous growling wolf is the first of many horrors to greet visitors entering the Black Monarch Hotel in Victor, Colorado.
Located in this once-abandoned mountain town, the Black Monarch hotel offers an over-the-top immersive art experience for those who fetishize nightmares and is the latest addition to a thriving haunted hotel industry that has become big business in Colorado.
Quoting myself but it saves time, I've just been chatting with one of the new owners of The Red Lion, he's still not experienced anything ghostly himself there (he's living there at the moment under quarantine) ... he had a woman tell him her husband was pushed out of bed in *drumroll* room 11 .. that used to be called room 10 when I was living there and fielding complaints about the same room except I've never told him that. She's a dead woman who'll lean over your bed or you'll see her in the room's bathroom mirror .. she only appears to men so far for some reason. A medium I gave a crafty tour to told me a woman had tried but failed to commit suicide in that room at the turn of the century.About twelve years ago, I was hired as the live in night porter/head barman at the Red Lion Hotel in Cromer.
If you skip to 0:23 in this video (and turn the dreadful music off), you'll see my old office (also reception area)..
I was responsible for locking everything up 6 nights a week and was nearly always completely alone, I was certainly the only staff member there.
One night, with the reception window still open, all the outside doors locked and all the guests in their rooms upstairs, I distinctly heard what sounded like three footsteps walking towards the reception window, hard soled shoes on the stone floor you can see pictured in the video. Of course there was no one there but my job was to make sure and there was still no one there or anywhere they could have been hiding. As a large 70's type plastic roof window was above the area, I put it down to that contracting and creating the sound. You can see one of these roof windows at 0:50 in the video.
Opposite that area, a door led/leads into the restaurant, one of my duties was also to check that area, by then I'd always switched the lights off although there was enough outside light that you could see. Often I'd get the feeling that the room was full of people, I never heard or saw anyone, just that feeling you get when someone walks up behind you and you sense them but of course, this could just be put down to tiredness.
One of our managers had had to check out a guest early from room 10, he'd refused to stay a second night but wouldn't explain why. His company had paid for the room so the manager received a phone call later the same day from this man's boss. It turned out the man had seen the reflection in his bathroom mirror of a Victorian looking woman and hadn't had a wink of sleep afterwards.
The large bar and dining area got through light bulbs at an astonishing rate, the tub we had for replacements was about half the size of a fridge, most mornings after I'd unlocked, the cleaners would arrive to find me up the stepladder replacing them. Again, this was/is an old building so weak electrics were the more likely explanation.
One evening, a good friend of mine was sat at the bar playing with a phone he'd just bought and was taking random pictures. He gave a shocked "f*****g hell!", said "hang on" and then explained to me that he'd just taken a picture of a dense person shaped shadow in one of the corners but had just as quickly accidentally deleted it. Often after my shift had ended, we'd go up to my night porter flat for a few cans of beer. I could access my flat from the inside of the building but for some reason, the owner didn't like my mate using the same route so I had to let him from the outside. I let him in one night and he asked me who'd followed me up the stairs ? .. he'd been watching from outside through a large stained glass window and swore a woman had been behind me.
The staff found all of this highly amusing, as a Fortean, I was quite excited about it as well although I tried to remain sceptical. One of the waitress's called my flat one lunchtime, apologised (because I was off duty) and told me there were people from a ghost tour organisation at reception who'd been asking questions and would I mind coming downstairs to speak with them .. which I did.
The owner wasn't keen on allowing them to host a night there so I gave them a tour after hours one night on the sly. The lady reckoned I was being followed around by the ghost of a woman, a detail I hadn't told them, that room 10 would sometimes scare people with a reflection of a woman in the mirror, something else I hadn't told them (I took them into a few empty rooms without giving anything away), a woman had once fallen down the bottom flight of stairs by reception but hadn't died, the snooker room used to be a ladies sewing/tapestry room .... when they all sat down in the bar after my tour, the lady in the team called me over and pointed upwards at the light bulb that had just popped directly above her chair.
The most dramatic experience I had came some time after this though. I was sat at the bar, customer side with a pint and a few customers were still hanging on and drinking up. I saw the solid outline of a woman walk across an open doorway, it was almost like a rota scope animation but absolutely dense black .. just like vantablack. I saw it in my direct line of sight so not from the corners of my eyes ..
I stood up straight away assuming this must be the female owner on an unannounced visit and walked towards the direction she was going. The corridor she was walking along has decorative windows in and as she hadn't walked past those, she could have only walked into reception. There was nobody there.
I've worked there recently (last Christmas for just a couple of months) apart from one old guy who sometimes works in the kitchen, neither the new owners or any of the staff I cautiously asked have reported any ghostly goings on at The Red Lion, Cromer.
Deceased Actor May Be Haunting the Midland HotelJocelyne LeBlancAugust 12, 2021
The Midland Hotel in Bradford, England, is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a former actor.
When a ghost hunter named Kenny Charles was conducting an investigation at the Midland Hotel, he captured some interesting evidence as he explained, “I was getting the spirits to do things. I have got a device called a Mel Metre and it has to be touched to be active and how hard it is touched shows a frequency with the lights and the amount of energy going into it. To see if the spirit could hear me I did a countdown from five and he touched it and the heat source went off.”
He added that he believes the spirit of actor Sir Henry Irving haunts the building. The famous stage actor and his manager Bram Stoker were said to have stayed at the hotel while Irving was performing at the Theatre Royal – he was playing the archbishop in Lord Tennyson’s “Beckett”.
The Mrs works at a stunning old hotel that I desperately want to be haunted but I've heard absolutely no reports that it is. The owner's Father still lives in the grounds (he was even born in the hotel in 1936) and he's never heard any reports or experienced anything weird either ..We are staying in a hotel on Sunday night. If it's not haunted I want a refund.*
*It's not reputed to be haunted but that's beside the point.
Several are local to us, and one that isn't local is in a town we plan to stay in soon so there's our accommodation sorted.Haunted hotels on England, a nice little list of places. https://www.english-inns.co.uk/HauntedInns.htm
Apart from the strange woman in Room 237, Mr Grady the caretaker, two twin girls, and the best goddamned bartender from Timbuktu to Portland, Maine. Or Portland, Oregon, for that matter., the Mrs has the whole place to herself every January, no guests, no staff, keys to the mansion ......... but what's the point if it isn't haunted? .... I wish it was .. it's only about 5 minutes walk from my house as well ..
The river of 'blood' was rust from a water pipe housekeeping staff told us.Apart from the strange woman in Room 237, Mr Grady the caretaker, two twin girls, and the best goddamned bartender from Timbuktu to Portland, Maine. Or Portland, Oregon, for that matter.

Cool. Where are you staying?.Actually Swifty, we are off on our holly bags to Norfolk next week, after cancelling our previous booked holiday to Portugal.
The missus sorted it out, and I asked her to book us into a nice coastal hotel, with sea views. The hotel must be old, but clean, atmospheric and the most important bit, it must be haunted I said to her cheerfully.
She showed me a picture of the accommodation last night, and I agreed it was in a great location……………not too far from the reception, swimming pool, camp shop, playground and clubhouse.!!!
That’s the last time I ask her to sort the holidays out.
Cool. Where are you staying?.
That bed looks a bit narrow...I've stayed a couple of nights at the very haunted Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard. It's said to be haunted by a number of spectres, though most notably Marilyn Monroe, who is said to appear in a mirror (now located on the first floor) which was once located in a bungalow that she lived in on the property for a couple of years as well as the bungalow itself.
The other most famous guest is Montgomery Clift, who stayed in room 928 (see pic below) for some months while filming 'From Here to Eternity'.
We stayed on the 10th Floor and had no paranormal experience, though so did pop down to floor number 9 in the hope of seeing Montgomery or hearing his rumoured phantom trumpet playing. No such luck. Anyway, here's the room he stayed in:

If you don't have a dog, are you allowed to stay there?At the moment it is not taking bookings, but it is really promoting itself as the ultimate venue for ghost hunters with dogs
