Top 10 CREEPY Moments Caught on a Baby Monitor
Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome top Top10Archive! Believe it or not, those innocent looking monitors we use to keep track of our tiny tots can be a form of nightmare fuel. From hush whispers to unusual imagery, baby monitors have spawned a collection of spooky moments, and we’re delivering the ten best right now!
The Possession of Connor
Chances are you’ve seen this one before but it’s just too perfectly eerie for us to have just left it off. Dear sweet Connor had a bad night one night and, with a little spiritual push, was helped onto the rim of the crib so he could… squelch like a demon child in need of a fresh soul. Despite pushback from viewers who call it a fraud, Connor’s parents, Chris and Keelan, stand by their story that their son propped himself up. We feel the creepiest part of the video is after he falls backward – rather violently, we should add – and the mobile he hit slowly ticks off a few eerie notes.
Words of Discouragement
Returning to the terrifying concept of baby monitor hacking, we have the Gilbert family. Marc, Lauren, and their two-year-old daughter fell victim to another’s twisted sense of humor and, on August 10th, 2013, were accosted by an unfamiliar voice over their baby monitor. The voice, thought to be European or British, verbally assaulted the family, targeting the Lauren and Marc directly. And in case you don’t quite realize why that’s so frightening, he knew who when someone was in the room because he also had control of the monitor’s camera.
A Friend for Sebastian
Well hey there, Sebastian. Who’s that lying next to you? Just some ethereal figure that left its grave to help you sleep at night? What makes this even creepier is that, to check to see who their son could be snuggling next to, Sebastian’s father, Dean, actually check. When he got to his child’s room, Dean found him sleeping peacefully… in a completely empty crib. Typically, we don’t like to cry “ghost,” but, you know what, we’re calling it: that’s a ghost baby that Sebastian inadvertently brought back from crawling around The Further.
The Yates Family Specter
The Yates family may not have been the biggest proponents of the paranormal, but after they captured what they adamantly claim to be a ghost on their baby monitor, their belief in the supernatural is undeniable. While the internet cries hoax, the family supports the possibility of a haunting in their daughter’s room by stating that her sleep pattern is “unusually erratic.” What do you think? Did the monitor pick up a ghostly visitor?
When baby Jessica was put to sleep that night, she was unaware that she would be used as a vessel for an ancient evil trapped in our plane of existence. The poor girl was helpless as the spirit force itself into her body, pushing the innocence in her eyes to the deepest reaches of her mind and replacing it with a cold darkness. It would be a few years before it could fulfill the prophecy, but patience had taken him this far.
Daddy's Looking for You
We can create stories based around the most haunting of baby monitor stills, but sometimes the tales of horror write themselves. For instance, consider the story of one anonymous family who was listening to their baby monitor one day only to hear: “Wake up little boy, daddy’s looking for you.” There’d be some comfort in knowing it was a voice to the other side, but the scary reality is that many baby monitors can be easily hacked, and while there’s no audio or video of this terrifying incident, we think the reality of it is enough to give you chills.
The Unseen Friend
It was play time, the jolly Tall Man with sunken cheeks and blackened eyes demanded of Little Jonny. The young child grew used to his late-night visitor, the one that only he could see and hear. The Tall Man always had new games for him to play and always refused to let the little tyke sleep until the sun threatened to peek through the blinds. He always left with the same excitement: “Tomorrow night, little guy. You and me. New Games!”
The Devil Made Him Do It
With no context behind this haunting image, we can only assume this baby was given a little bit of the Devil’s essence before being put to sleep that night. In fact, there is a horrific resemblance to Regan’s spider walk scene in the uncut version of The Exorcist. The rotten cherry on top of this disturbing image? Of course, it’s the glowing eyes that just so happen to be staring right at the monitor.
Robbing the Cradle
The phrase took on a different meaning quite a while ago but this baby monitor footage almost returns it to its original denotation. After a neighbor down the street found Thinh Le’s wallet and briefcase on their property, Le checked his security cameras to find that, unbeknownst to him and his wife, they had a late-night visitor. The worst of the surprise visit was captured on the baby monitor and it showed the thief in the babies room, getting uncomfortably close to the sleeping child.
Sounds from the Other Side
It’s true that baby monitors are known for picking up signals from other monitors and wireless devices from the neighborhood, but… this doesn’t sound like it’s even coming from within the same world. The garbled noises sound more like two otherworldly entities are engaged in an argument over who gets to eradicate Earth. There’s the level-headed lower tone, reasoning that he waited patiently; then there’s the high-pitched shrill that’s adamant he called it light-years ago. Or… maybe it’s just static, but I guess we’ll never…
