There is obviously some tension and worry in the house but I blame pop culture and the media for blowing things out of proportion and making this into something it’s almost certainly not – haunted.
A doll that won’t stay in the same location and other strange happenings are giving a St. John’s family goosebumps.
Judy Ryan, her partner and her four sons moved into a home in the East Meadows neighbourhood in the east end of St. John’s last month. The house — built in the 70s — is an ordinary home in a nice neighbourhood, but Ryan’s son Julian noticed strange things happening shortly after the move.
A small yellow doll that Julian, 17, made in Home Ec class ended up on his pillow instead of in the nightstand where it was usually kept.
Things are misplaced, the radio is tuned to static, the basement is cold. Time to call in a psychic who says that spirits from 70 years ago live in the house, two girls (the house hasn’t been there that long). So now, they say, they are adjusting.
As our tipster notes, CBC has a gullibility problem. This piece is neither news nor spooky nor even at all interesting. Obviously, it’s a new house for the family, a new situation; things with kids can get stressful and confusing. This is flimsy evidence for a poltergeist or anything paranormal at all.

Aside: Did you know they are making a remake of Poltergeist? Ugh. I have a feeling it will be ridiculous.
