Reports of paranormal activity are so common at Chernobyl that it has become a destination for ghost hunters, and has even appeared on the SyFy Channel’s show Destination Truth. When the team went into the area wearing protective garments, they claim that they encountered some bizarre phenomena indeed, such as spotting multiple unidentified figures moving about the rubble and anomalous thermal images of a humanoid entity lurking about near Reactor 4, even though at the time no one else should have been there. There were also EVP readings and several strange noises heard during the excursion. Does this place of so much death and suffering still hold these spirits to it?
While we are on the subject of ghosts we may as well mention the reports of actual zombies said to stalk the area of Chernobyl. These zombies are said to prowl about and attack anyone who comes to investigate the site, and there was even video evidence supposedly brought forward of this happening, when in 2010 a video was posted on YouTube that supposedly showed a soldier being set upon and ripped apart by zombies in the wilds of Pripyat. The video was purportedly taken by a Russian military night vision camera and it immediately got people talking. Unfortunately (fortunately?) the video was soon found to be fake. It turns out that the video was actually a part of a trailer for the 2007 video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl, which is of course about mutated zombies hunting for prey at Chernobyl.
