4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to view
A general photo book about what people to believe to be apparitions, as well as explaining how some images can be faked or even accidentally done by the photographer such as exhaling on a cigarette just prior to taking the shot. It's a great stocking filler for the holiday period and will interest those with a fascination in the paranormal, perhaps even a great Halloween...

3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy fun but a lot of 'filler'
I don't believe in ghosts, but am interested in faked and unexplainable 'ghost' photography. There is a fair bit of that in this book, and some of the images are very creepy and atmospheric. However, there's also an awful lot of 'filler' material - pictures that don't purport to be ghosts at all but are instead religious images or simply 'faces' spotted in objects...

This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
A general photo book about what people to believe to be apparitions, as well as explaining how some images can be faked or even accidentally done by the photographer such as exhaling on a cigarette just prior to taking the shot. It's a great stocking filler for the holiday period and will interest those with a fascination in the paranormal, perhaps even a great Halloween gift such as us featuring it here. It will leave you questioning some pictures but its definitely a spooky experience for the reader and one that might help you capture that special image of your own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy fun but a lot of 'filler', 10 Dec. 2013

Flicking through this book passes some time but it's not of much interest to any real ghost/horror addict.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining - but for the right reasons?, 30 Sept. 2009
By 
M. Huggins (UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
Having had a proper chance to sit down and really study this book I've updated this review; I would say that a large proportion of these images are not of the paranormal kind. Unfortunately they're not necessarily just errors either which wouldn't be so bad, but instead photos that have been manipulated by people keen on hoaxing and skilled with photography/photo-editing programmes/computers. To be fair the author doesn't claim them to necessarily be ghosts, but leaves the decision to you the reader. However the book is kind of hinting at the content being genuine isn't it?
A handful are good and could be the proof we seek, some could just be genuine but are a bit iffy, but I'm afraid many are downright silly. The image showing the gaggle of shrouded ghosts peering in through the open car window at the new baby on the back seat just made me howl with laughter - oh of course the car was parked conveniently in a graveyard, well beats feeding the ducks I guess........
Something else which sticks out alarmingly too is the sheer number of alleged ghosts that manage to appear just at the time some guy or gal has bought a brand new camera and is just trying it out for the first time!! Really? Sure that wasn't a brand new photo-editing program? Then there's all the kids dolls and small shop dummies pictured going walkabout in various graveyards.....Did anyone even check to see if all these places are even haunted?
There also seems to be an alarming number of "glowing white entities" like the one on the cover too. A rare type of ghost photograph until seeing this book?
The cover pic was apparently captured by some US ghost-hunter "who saw it coming up the stairs and waited till it got near him before taking its picture". Cripes you mean he waited? Like you'd risk losing that once-in-a-lifetime-moment by waiting for it to reach your position so you could catch its gleaming teeth......
So I'm now giving it 3 stars for pure entertainment!!!
If you want serious paranormal go for the previous 2 titles. If you want to see mostly fake, but still be entertained, then buy this too.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Pointless', 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
Bought this cheaply after reading the reviews. One or two decent photos but mostly faked or chance photos of 'faces' in everyday things (smoke, wood knots etc). Pointless and very desperate attempt of proof of the paranormal.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the fan, 17 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
OK for younger fans and enthusiasts of the genre. For the older more sceptical reader, you may be suspicious of the authenticity of the photographs. Still a bit spooky...

5.0 out of 5 stars Third book in the series, better than the first two?, 19 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
Ghosts Caught On Film 2 is the third of these such books published by David and Charles but this is the first edited by Jim Eaton. All three of these books are a great addition to a Fortean book shelf simply because they present each picture in full colour printed on quality paper. In fact the presentation of all three books is bar none.

While the first two books featured photographs that I'd seen before, actually some photos I'd come across in those books I'd already encountered a debunk for, the third book presents all new photographs to me with the exception of two.

Again each photo is given it's own page and is printed well: some look real, some look like simulacra, some look like natural patterns in wood or shadows from lights and some look fake. Eaton includes a chapter with examples of how to spot fakes which may make you go back through the book a second time and apply the information he points out in that chapter.

Eaton himself offers no real in depth dissection of the pictures he presents (much the same as the previous two books by Dr. Melvyn Willin) but presents them to the reader to make up their own minds.

If you believe or not it's still nice to have pictures of these things that you can refer to by simply taking it down from your own bookshelf.

This review is from: Ghost Caught on Film 2: 2 (Hardcover)
A load of rubbish! although I don't own the book myself I have read it in waterstones. The pictures are clearly faked and no effort has gone into making them look even decent. Do not Buy if you are interested in the Paranormal such as myself!!!
