Steven Speilberg, Bob Zemeckis and Ralph keeton
What do two world famous film produces and one TV medium have in common?
The first location to look at was Walwarth Castle, a beautiful castle set in luxurious surroundings. Little known of except for a series of ghostly events that have drawn, Ralph and Gryphon Productions together
Walworth Castle Hotel is set in the rolling countryside of the Tees valley, just to the west of Darlington and close to the A1(M) in County Durham. It was built in 1189 and is one of the few castle hotels in England.
As soon as Ralph arrived he is duly sent off to the main bedrooms and particularly the tower. Filming starts and 'Ralph' steps forward, not the Ralph we see here but a ghostly Ralph who starts to show his presence in many ways. Ralph starts to laugh which unnerves the crew, "I cannot believe I'm speaking to a Ralph", but this Ralph turns out to be very much a strong person. Gamely producing noises and slamming the door to in an attempt to move everyone away. This Ralph in spirit had been injured and wanted his injury to be felt.
Leaving the girl alone Ralph moves to another room to see a blond lady combing her hair looking for someone to return. "This room is full of love and amorous intentions" Ralph says smiling. Mourning for the return of love ha d left its impression in the bedroom overlooking the courtyard. (To everyone’s amazement the owner Chris, confirms the information so far provided). Ralph reveals this lady would be seen by many "But you'd have to be careful not to be alone in her for her intentions are good, if not very overwhelming" Ralph adds. Suddenly Ralph attention is averted to the corridor ad a chase pursues.
A grand staircase and two children running around free of everyone’s gaze "I startled them as much as they have me" Ralph now out of breath and two flights of staircases better explains. People simply ignore these two as noises on the stairs but they are as alive today as they were 150 years ago, no harm. "But an explanation as to the staircase running footsteps and the top rooms laughing noise" retorts Chris. Ralph then is told to visit one room in particular. By the grand door he feels the gunshot wound and the blood of a man i a fight to the death. The Door open and in the middle of the room stands a four poster bed in luxurious detail. Here a brother lies dying after a gun fight with his sibling, both injured though one fatally.
The room fills with an icy blast as to welcome those present. Here Ralph tells of a lost Horse of some status buried in the grounds, where the fight took place and the remorse of a sibling wanting to change events he now knew he would never repair. "I'm told the young live and die early here and it feels like a curse to others who aren't strong enough for the castle energies". Again confirmed many young children had inherited the castle and many never living long enough to see its proud stance of today.
Finally the crew go down stairs and into the dark, damp cellars. We meet face to face with a stockman, whom it seems was also prone to hiding many a scallywag from his master. "I wouldn't have argued with this chap" explains Ralph "For this man was and still has a might fierce temper and the strength of three men to add to it. He kept order even with the gentlemen of the home!". Just as the crew start to move away thinking it was all over, a stone blasts out of the darkness straight at the cameraman and missing Ralph's left ear by millimetres. Enough to wake everyone up and increase the light levels to daylight to see who or what had done this. Revealing a stone wall nearly a metre away from Ralphs’s back and making it impossible for anyone to be there.....Filming over everyone vacates at 100 miles per hour.

'Monster House' Speilberg / Zemeckis Film in real event
Working for the Top hollywood producers on a real life case.
So imagine if you will, being able to communicate with spirit and finding yourself challenged both psychically and mentally. The problem here was a 'Spirit Energy' in a home both aggressive and protective. Spirit energies in conflict with themselves as well the living is not the easiest of spirit energies to deal with and it would prove not to be easy on the uninitiated film crew about to take part in a live filming event.
Filming started easy enough but as the family are participating loud noises and coldness suddenly arrived, the now nervous film crew carried on interviewing the family with a heightened sense of anticipation. The family explained how they'd coped for the 15 years and how it had affected them. Explaining about an evil 'ghost' causing bad atmospheres, moving objects (small at first), smashing a toilet cistern to appearing to them in one room. The father explained further about the second 'friendlier' ghost and how she'd treated for them in the meantime.
Ralph took the film crew on a tour of the next floors. The first room was an introduction to the female in pink whose task it was to look after the two boys. She'd lost her two young children (murdered) and looked to protect the two youngest in the home from 'others'. An explanation from the family of the sightings by the youngest boy and the father (non believer) who'd now on separate occasions saw her for himself. "I now believe my son when he tells me 'the lady tucks him in'" he told the crew.
Ralph moved on and joined the most notorious energy of them all. The lights flickered and sickening odours melted around them as they worked. It was explained that the house had a dark past having been exorcised by a catholic priest. The home has had problems for over twenty five years and since Ralph had arrived it had heightened. Ralph explained "They know why we're here and what I want to do, sorry guys you're going to have to stay until it's over"
To prove his existence the next 8 hours this evil energy subjected the crew to lights turning off on the upper floors whenever Ralph challenged the energy. To the crews amazement he turned on light on in the room to answer Ralph's questions. Flickering to set numbers of flickering e.g. 8 to say yes and 4 for no! As Ralph turned he told them "He's off to turn out all the electric and play with you all......." and into darkness with mayhem to follow. (It must be stated here an electrician checked the electric and bulbs after, it all checked out normal.
Ralph returned to the homes upstairs and felt the full might of the man. Exploding lights (the film crews), freezing conditions, body injuries and darkness so black it felt unreal. Then there were the sounds only caught onto the sound system not audible to anyone at the time. The Shocked crew still couldn't believe the atmosphere as Ralph controlled the full exorcism, despite the distractions. Only after several attempts did the Spirit Entity move on and away from its earthly connections. Ralph fought to move the energy away and cleaned out the entire floor spiritually, leaving those who wanted to protect the family alone. .
