Family captures 'poltergeist' on film

Hi all,

Can the claim made that this is a ghost be debunked from watching the video alone?

The petrified Manning family from Coventry started witnessing out-of-the-ordinary events two weeks after settling into the council-rented home last year.

Lisa Manning, a 34-year-old carer, goes as far as to claim that the resident ghost killed the family's pet dog Phoenix. A vetinary post-mortem suggested it had been shoved down the stairs.

She has since had to resort to exorcism to get rid of the ghostly problem after noticing lights switching on and off, pots moving, drawers opening and doors slamming shut.

Shooting the footage herself, an empty cupboard door appears to open by itself and a pink chair gradually making its way across her 11-year-old daughter Ellie's bedroom in the 52-second home video.

Eager to prove its existence, the mother-of-two told the Coventry Telegraph: "The priest blessed the house but said himself that we shouldn't live here, we definitely shouldn't stay. He gave me a small crucifix. The problem is because we can't see it, we don't know where it's going to be or what it's going to do. This is a horror house. It's like living in a scary movie. The worst thing about it is, even I can't believe what's happening myself."

The video doesn't prove or disprove anything in my opinion.
The camera is placed so inconveniently that you could not see a rope attached to both the door and the chair.
If the video could be so easily replicated by anyone, its completely worthless.
Also, there are some sounds in the background, like someone coughing once...

This can easily produce the the pots rattling if there was something there to be explained scientifically where the pots resonate to the frequency as well as give the feeling of dread.

As for the electricity the house seems pretty old and likely has old wiring in it. As well any interference can cause shorts like that or it could just be a flickering in the power.

And it seems as though the family made the story up to cover up killing the dog either accidently or purposely and kept going with it so they wouldn't get charged with animal abuse

I do not know if it because I am coming in a month later but I cannot see the video. When I click the link, it takes me to generic Yahoo New for UK&Ireland.
