Halloween special: The top five creepiest clips caught on dashcam
Dashcams are useful bits of kit that are slowly creeping (pun intended) into everyday motoring. As useful at they are at capturing dangerous drivers and crash-for-cash scammers, it would appear they’re pretty great at capturing footage of a more peculiar kind too.
So with Halloween just around the corner, we’ve sifted the internet to bring you five of the creepiest clips out there, and managed to debunk a few of them along the way too.
Cars doing disappearing acts, mythical beasts, it’s all here…
A curious creature…
Out on patrol in the dead of night, this cop car’s dashcam captured the eerie moment a Big Foot-like creature ran across the road. Blink and you’ll miss it, but there’s definitely something there.
Big Foot sightings are usually dismissed as hoaxes, but the fact the police officer swung the car round for a closer look certainly suggests it’s something out of the ordinary.
Ghostly apparition? Just keep driving
This footage from Thailand shows a driver coming face to face with spooky apparition standing right in the middle of the road.
With no sign of an emergency stop, nor the apparition stepping out of the way, is it ghost? Or a simple lighting trick?
Time is a flat circle
Another night-time encounter now, although this clip goes to show that things don’t have to be badly lit before the ghosts appear.
A driver in Malaysia happened upon this a lady in red walking along the road... only to come across the same figure further up the road... and again. A ghostly spectre? Someone caught in a time loop? The last encounter made the driver wisely reverse the car.
Ministry of scary walks…
The occupants of this vehicle find themselves confronted by two impeccably dressed individuals in the road, complete with bowler hats and briefcases, who are part of a larger group taking part in some bizarre ritual.
Nope, they're not UKs answer to the Men In Black but in fact part of a promotional video for Radiohead’s “Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief” directed by I.T Crowd star Richard Ayoade.
Beware of dog
Everyone knows about Cujo right, Stephen King's story about a rabid St. Bernard dog who traps a mother and her child inside their car without food or water during a heat wave?
That story pales in comparison to what transpires in the above video.
