Some truly creepy footage has captured Reddit's attention today.
The parents who posted it reckon it shows their kid interacting with a ghost or a spirit on a nanny cam - and it has left the internet feeling spooked.
Whether or not you believe in ghosts is a divisive issue.
But whether you do or don't, there's no denying that there's some compelling and creepy ghostly footage out there.
One such video, shared on Reddit's aptly named 'Ghosts' forum, has caused quite a stir this week.
It appears to show a child interacting with an invisible figure, and the parents are asking for the internet's opinion on the frightening footage.
"Ever since we moved in, we’ve felt that we had a spirit roaming our house.
"Our cat would stare into the ceiling/corners.
"When our son was born, he would laugh randomly into the air.
"But we also just brushed it off as cats being cats, and babies being babies."
She then revealed she'd placed a nanny cam in her child's room to help see what was going on in there.
She continued: "The first few days of November, he’s been just laughing at what seems like nothing or our friendly spirit.
"One night it was 3 mins straight of him laughing (only recorded the last half before I ended up grabbing him).
"Another night was him laughing and saying 'no' a handful of times."
The mom had taken to ask others to look at her footage and see what they think of it.
She continued: "And as of lately, he’s just been refusing or trying to avoid naps and bed time.
"I can’t help but think if he’s talking to our spirit.
"I have a few screen recordings."
In the unsettling video, we see her son lying in bed and laughing uproariously.
There are also orbs visible on screen - although the mom concedes they could be dust motes.
The video has gained mixed reaction online, with people undecided on what exactly they're seeing.
One Redditor wrote: "Could be, might be, maybe not. I have a baby his age who also babbles and laughs to himself as he winds down for bed."
Another added: "As a full grown adult I still do this sometimes, if the thing I’m thinking of is funny enough, I’ll giggle myself to sleep."
While a third theorized: "Seems like he could just not enjoy bed time alone, so he’s trying to entertain himself using his imagination."
What do you think of the footage?
