The Spookytea Group - Haunting Specialists

The Spookytea group had never seen haunting of the epic proportions that they were witnessing, “we’re dead.” Ever since Sam started the group in 2018, their popularity on YouTube skyrocketed for the real haunting scenes that they captured and presented.

“Bad,” Rajesh referred to the blood clotted finger marks on his face.

“It’s not over, I think.”

When OmargoshTV, another popular YouTuber, presented the Witches Castle, Sam and Rajesh were itching to visit the haunted location. Omar had captured few instances of attack by unseen evil entities.


Rajesh turned at Sam’s reaction and saw the chandelier frozen at forty-five degrees as if someone had pulled it to one side and would leave it swinging to the other side. The problem was that they both were the ones standing on the other side in the chandelier’s path.

“Run,” Sam yelled, and at the same time, the chandelier swung wildly towards the staircase. As they ran down the stairs, the chandelier hit the wall, and the resulting rain of glasses created havoc in the darkness.

“Did you get that on camera? Rajesh’s question amused Sam, who was avoiding the glass shrapnel. At times, in extreme stress and fear, the brain supposedly gives in, and the trauma turns to humour, which Sam feared was the case with Rajesh.

“I got that, but I hope we are getting out of here,” Sam pointed to one of the doors opening. History wise, the witches castle was a construction in Philadelphia dating back to the nineteenth century, but it was in the twentieth century that it gained its reputation. It was a woman who turned to witchcraft to punish her ex-husband and his wife for taking away her married life.

“What’s that?” Rajesh pointed up. The camera clearly recorded orbs flying across.

“Rajesh, isn’t it time we got out of here?” Sam was admittedly spooked for the first time.

The story of the woman further goes that she got her witchcraft wrong and summoned evil which she could not control but was driven to insanity herself. The woman was now in a mental asylum, but the curse which she summoned still haunted the house and continued to spread its darkness.

“This house is pure evil,” Rajesh spoke into the camera.

“Let’s getting going, dude,” Sam nudged.

Unlike in horror movies, haunted locations did not have devils roaming around killing people, but there were visible movements, noises and even whispers at times.

“Wooow,” someone pulled my backpack, Sam said, “did you get that on camera?”

Such incidents of glass shattering, pulling and pushing were what brought the Witches Castle close to the Hollywood horror movies, and wisely, Sam decided to get out of the place.

“Oh, good Lord, Sam cried out as they came out, “I believe in Christ.”

“Changed man, aren’t you?”

Sam smiled in acknowledgement and was glad that they got great shots of the castle at three in the night and that they could come out in one piece.
