They're Here













The Enfield poltergeist was one of the most thoroughly investigated paranormal events of the late 20th century. Centering on Janet, 11, and to a lesser extent her sister Margaret, 13, the family reported strange noises, and other manifestations were documented including the movement of large items of furniture, Janet's levitation (pictured), unexplained fires and (best of all) a gruff male voice similar to Regan's voice in 'The Exorcist' coming from both girls. This continued for more that a year around 1977. When Janet and Margaret are asked about it they maintain to this day that the phenomena were genuine and investigators have failed to offer convincing explanations.

  1. Levitation? I'm thinking somebody got a little carried away jumping on the bed, inadvertently launching themselves at a clearly unfazed David Essex and the brick wall beyond.

  2. I think it is Starsky and Hutch posters on the wall, not David Essex. But Still enough to make any 70s child jump for joy and glee.
    The carpet reminds me of my 1st bedsit.

  3. David is to the left of Hutch. Just above The Glitter Band.
