Pop Culture and the Fear of Ghosts

Pop culture has changed the way we perceive the supernatural; movies such as Poltergeist and The Exorcist are designed to scare us and keep us on our toes. As media has continued to evolve, the images we’re told have become even more shocking/terrifying. It’s very rare that you come across a playful spirit in a Hollywood film, and the truth is, most spirits aren’t strong enough to affect the physical realm in any meaningful way.

Most reported hauntings fall into the category of a ‘recording,’ a recording is best described as a certain event/time that happened during someone’s life that is replayed after death. This is something that often happens when highly charged emotions are involved. Recordings of a ghost can’t harm anyone because they’re unable to interact with anything, you should think of them as nothing more than a hologram.

One very famous ghost is that of Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Tudor King Henry VIII. Anne Boleyn was beheaded at Tower Hill after being falsely accused of adultery. Boleyn’s ghost has been sighted hundreds of times at The Tower of London and her childhood home of Hever Castle in Kent. The ghost of the assassinated president, Abraham Lincoln, is often spotted in the White House by such people such as the first lady.
