A weird video records the terrifying sound of a “human-sounding” scream coming from a couple’s empty living room in the middle of the night.
Reddit user u/ParrotParent uploaded the creepy footage to the ghosts forum and said that the sound was so loud it woke her up and, after checking the external cameras, said the noise definitely came from inside the home.
In the clip, the darkened room is completely still and a black cat is curled up asleep on the sofa.
Suddenly, a scream erupts from somewhere nearby and the sleeping cat jerks violently awake at the noise.
Explaining more about the clip in the caption, the homeowner wrote: “Scream in the middle of the night while we were sleeping.
“Came from the living room.
“Lot of other weird occurrences in this house.”
The video has since been up-voted more than 1,000 times and hundreds of believers have left comments trying to deduce what the spine-tingling sound could be.
A terrified-sounding viewer commented: “That’s some paranormal activity s*** right there.
“Only scene in the movie that really got me was the scream from the living room with the couple upstairs.
“This gave me the chills.”
Someone else joked: “Oh hell nah. Burn the house down.”
Equally freaked-out, another person wrote: “That sounded really human.”
“Holy s*** that was truly horrifying,” a fourth person said.
On the fence, one viewer said the noise “could absolutely be paranormal” but also suggested it might be caused by a water pipe under high pressure.
More skeptical people said it was definitely an animal, with suggestions of a fox or a cougar.
This comes after a ghost-hunter from Hull claimed he was “punched” by a shadowy apparition while walking home from the garage to buy a pint of milk in the middle of the night.
