Real Ghost EVP: The Most Terrifying EVP Ever Recorded

IN JANUARY, 2007, the Central New York Ghost Hunters (CNYGH), based in Syracuse, New York, were invited to investigate an old hotel in upstate New York. (The owners of the hotel have asked to keep its location confidential.) The investigation proved to be one of the most intensely active the group has ever encountered, and produced an EVP – an electronic voice phenomena recording – that is remarkable not only for its length, but also for its terrifying content.

Caution: the recording is violent and may be too intense for some listeners.

The Investigation:

On that weekend in January, CNYGH founder Stacey Jones and several members of the group went to the hotel on an overnight stay for what they thought would be a routine investigation. They had no idea what they were in for.

Originally built in the late 1800s, the building was in its colorful history the site of some nefarious activity, a fact that might be key to what is heard in the EVP.

On Friday night, Stacey and her group set up their equipment – audio recorders, video recorders and other electronics – and settled in, hoping to document some evidence for the haunting the owners had claimed. Most investigations are relatively quiet, but this night was filled with paranormal activity, including muffled voices of unknown origin, footsteps from unseen bodies and more. Members of the group I spoke with confirmed that it was the most active haunting they had personally experienced.

The real shocker came the next day. On Saturday afternoon at about 3 pm, two female CNYGH investigators and a member of the owner’s family (also a female) sat on the staircase of the hotel with a digital voice recorder, intending to capture some EVP. They chose the stairway because they had heard soft conversations and footsteps on the floor above, although no one was up there.

When they later played the recording back, however, what they heard were not soft voices and footsteps, but something totally unexpected and completely terrifying.

The EVP:

Stacey Jones describes what you’ll hear on the recording:

“You can [faintly] hear the three females talking throughout the recording. You will hear a female – the family member – say, ‘Hello, baby,’ and another long conversation. Those are all human voices. But what sounds like a struggle or attack is going on as well.

“The male [voice] you hear was not present at the hotel. You will hear a cuckoo clock (which was not present) a ticking of a hall clock (which was there); you will hear what sounds like the microphone being moved (which was not touched) and then the sound becomes clearer.

“You will hear a creaking door and slamming of the door, which is real. Then you will hear a [unknown] woman say, ‘Get off me,’ and what sounds like the woman being attacked. The struggle continues for awhile, and during the EVP you can hear some of my investigators’ conversations. After interviewing my investigators, they said they went and sat on the stairs of this hotel, because they heard from an above floor, what sounded like footsteps and conversations, not what you hear on this recording. When the noises stop, you hear the investigators participate in a lulled conversation. They stated that they started to talk when the noises stopped. In their conversation, you will hear a male voice say, ‘Help me’ several times.”

“The EVP has not been altered in any way, except it was edited for time,” Stacey says. “CNY Ghost Hunters have tried to reduce the noise, amplify and ‘clean’ it up, but found it difficult to make out exactly what was being said. We invite you to download this EVP to see what you can make of it.

    Wow, something very bad happened here and I believe it has opened the door to the demonic and should be treated as such. You cannot make out what they are saying because they are not human. If you want to do right by these people you will get a demonologist in there ASAP. If you do not know of any then please feel free to get back to me, I happen to know a couple on the east coast who are legit. Good luck and be safe, these are pretty nasty and would love to attach themselves to you and now that they know you can hear them they know who you are. Great catch guys….

    To be honest, I am pretty sceptical about this. It sounds like the EVP recorder has picked up activity coming from a mobile phone, that has unwittingly been dialled and left on. I sometimes get voicemail from a person, who has phoned me by mistake. The voicemail picks up the muted conversation. This EVP sounds very similar. However, if this is real, it is truly terrifying…

    • Michelle

      Hi Charles, I think it is real. But, I’ve gotten them voicemails which sound a little like this. My problem is the ringer wasn’t off and I had no received calls. It makes me wonder.

  • Steve

    My wife and I worked with a haunting investigation group. We had a person on the team who would regularly fake EVP phenomenon. Everyone in the group knew it. The leader of the group however was so anxious to make a name for himself that even things that had logical explanations were reported as “real” EVP activity. Occam’s Razor folks. Don’t be misled by nonsense. Sometimes all you are hearing is the over-blown ego of a trickster.

    but to satisfay your curiosity as we know human have always doubts and mistrust and fears, you can call me positive energy or positive entity writing to you through inspiring some one here or thier,or through possesings some one through positive clear relation not through harming but by the agreement of two of us me and the meduim or the bridge between me and your world , what metters actually that im friendly and well educated and much better and more secure than any other human man,beside that im the only one who can offer real edvice and help
