Back in the late 1970s one of the most famous cases of paranormal activity was recorded at a simple council house located in Enfield, England. The case was dubbed “The Enfield Poltergeist” and back in the 70s managed to send the entire British nation and subsequently the whole world into a terrifying grip of fear.
The horrific case of an active poltergeist was first reported by Margaret Hodgson, a single mother of four. Hodgson called the police authorities after she and her children got spooked by supernatural moving and knocking sounds which could be heard coming from the walls. When a female police officer arrived at the scene she witnessed a sofa moving on its own from one side of the room to the other. There were no cables or magnets to be found which could have explained the bizarre and spooky occurrence.
Later reports from the Enfield house included some of the children in the family speaking in purportedly demonic voices as if they were possessed by a mysterious entity. At one point one of the girls named Janet was filmed while levitating in midair. The 11-year-old girl was also witnessed falling into the state of trance without having any memory of the experience afterwards.
The paranormal experts and media reporters who gathered to investigate the case at some point also witnessed the paranormal occurrences and were not able to dismiss them as a hoax. Some doubted the children veracity but nevertheless the Enfield Poltergeist remains one of the most popular and well documented case of paranormal activity.
