The Shining Hotel Really Is Haunted Just Look at the Ghosts!

The 108 year-old Stanley Hotel made famous in Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” (known as the Overlook Hotel in the movie) looks like it might really be haunted after all.

Ghosts were caught on camera at the famed Colorado hotel.

An Aurora, Colorado family participated in a spirit tour at the hotel last month and noticed a picture after they got home that seemed to show a young girl walking down the stairs. There were no young girls in their 11-member party tour.

A former FBI agent specializing in paranormal activity said after careful analysis there doesn’t seem to be any signs of trickery.

If it’s a hoax it’s a good one, because the photo on closer inspection may feature a SECOND apparition.

Author Stephen King called his 1974 stay at the hotel “the perfect, maybe the archtypical setting for a ghost story.” King wrote on his official website that he and his wife were the only guests when the hotel was about to close for the winter.

“That night I dreamed of my three-year-old son running through the corridors, looking back over his shoulder, eyes wide, screaming. He was being chased by a fire-hose. I woke up with a tremendous jerk, sweating all over, within an inch of falling out of bed. I got up, lit a cigarette, sat in the chair looking out the window at the Rockies, and by the time the cigarette was done, I had the bones of the book firmly set in my mind.”

That dream ultimately became his third book, “The Shining” in 1977.

Sweet dreams!
