Smoke Pours from Possessed Ghost Hunter After Holy Water is Poured on His Neck

Video Shows Smoke Pouring from “Possessed” Ghost Hunter After Holy Water Cleansing Session

ghost hunter billows smoke when doused in holy water

Holy smokes! A recently released video claims to show a paranormal investigator having some rather adverse side effects to holy water, a response that the ghost hunters believe resulted from being possessed.

In a clip shot last Halloween, the team at LiveSciFi are shown searching for evidence of the paranormal in Atchinson, Kansas’ own Sallie House, when they decided to attempt an communication with spirits by combining the use of a Ouija board with a famous technique called “The Ganzfield Experiment” (meant to induce hallucinations that some believe are actually psychic impressions). Their results frightened them and led to some interesting footage.

When the subject, Tim Wood, began convulsing in the corner of the house, the team rushes to his side in an effort to snap him out of the trance. Once he regains his composure, the group heads outside to “cleanse” Wood with holy water.

“That’s scary shit,” he says. “I’m, like, freaked out. I don’t want to go back in the house.”

He only got more freaked out when, as his partners drizzled the blessed holy water, his neck began to smoke and steam. The group didn’t waste any time testing the water on themselves, but the reaction was exclusive to Wood. Their conclusion? He must be possessed.

“I felt extremely out of it,” Tim told a user on YouTube. “I actually got sick to my stomach and was throwing up.. I didn’t feel like myself.”

You can watch the video below, but the team warns no one to attempt the experiment themselves under any circumstances as it could “lead to a case of demonic possession”.  I’ll admit that I’m not entirely sold on the event, as live Halloween episodes generally don’t have the greatest track record of realism, but I’m curious as to what you think. Was Tim Wood attacked by the demonic, or was there a simpler reason as to why his skin was the only one to steam?

The good stuff happens around the 34 minute mark:

Taking place in October, a cold night, the man was wearing a heavy jacket and a respirator causing body heat to increase. The back of the neck is a place where the body loses heat rapidly. Different people have different metabolisms and put off more or less heat under the same circumstances. This was water evaporating from body heat into cool probably dry air.

I’ve had smoke come off my head from sweat rapidly cooling when I used to go dancing at the club all the time. It’s just cool weather, hot skin, and moisture will lead to smoke. I have footage that someone filmed of me because they thought it was all evil and cool looking, but it was a pretty common thing to happen to me. I see nothing unusual about this, but of course it’s for tv so they live in a different realm of reality where common sense no longer exists. I DO believe in evil spirits, you can call… Read more »

I’m typically skeptical of any “ghost hunter” show to begin with, so my kneejerk reaction is to call bullshit on this – on the smoking neck thing, anyways. Everything else is up to speculation. But as people have explained before (and better than) me, that could be simple evaporation/condensation/whateveration taking place.

Is “turn to steam” really what holy water on a demon is supposed to do? If the Holy water acted like acid on his skin and began to eat his flesh…call me impressed, but I don’t think demon hunters carry Holy water for an impromptu spa treatment.

And this is why I stopped ghost hunting. If these guys had really come across a demon I don’t think holy water would help.

Of course, if you want to fake a truly impressive effect, what you do is the little trick used in the old Hammer film “The Brides Of Dracula” – you coat your skin with crushed Alka-Seltzer. The acidic bubbling when the holy water hits you will look jolly convincing! In fact, he water doesn’t even have to be holy. Just don’t tell anybody I told you…

Greg I don’t know about the smoke pouring out the guy’s rear that could be hot bodiedness or kundalini or windhorse or whatever but what sets my teeth on edge is the earlier stuff where Hot Neck Houlihan appears to be fainting but is clearly being deliberately shoved back and forth by his two cohorts almost by way of setting up the idea some sort of demonic force is loose in him.

I was a part of this investigation and I can 100% vouch that nothing was faked. As to whether it’s paranormal, I’ll leave that up to you. All I will say is that we were legitimately freaked out and concerned for Tim. He was not acting like himself, can’t say for sure he was possessed, but something weird was going on. Happy to answer any questions about the investigation, etc.

Would’ve been made more credible if they’d have posted the whole take in a single video, and marked their comments in a way that didn’t cut the footage. Also, if they’d have poured holy water on one wrist and regular water on the other wrist; if only the holy water smoked, that would have been credible (and to bolster the case, they could’ve then applied the holy water and regular water to the opposite wrist, to make sure that skeptics couldn’t claim it was the wrists that were different.) It’s all well and good to say that something felt weird… Read more »

[…] Despite efforts from other owners to prove that the home wasn’t haunted, the last tenant embraced the rumors and wrote up an ad that included the ghosts as a feature. The ad went viral, and in December of last year the home finally found an owner open to the idea of sharing a space with spirits – Tim Wood, the man behind all-paranormal streaming video website LiveSciFi, a website known for hosting some rather, well… dramatic investigations.

Tim Wood is as fake as they come. I heard he even fakes happenings in front of his team members in an effort to make the shows interesting and keep viewers watching. Members he neglects to pay after making money off shows that they helped him film. No wonder why nobody wants to work with him anymore. Pitiful.

I couldn’t agree more. That Tim screws over everyone he crosses paths with. He uses people for notoriety and then after he gets what he wants, he’ll go to great lengths just to defame them. He talks trash about everyone that he works with. He’s nothing but a zak bagans wannabe. He lies about viewers sending him stuff when he actually just bought it from some store and claims that it’s haunted. He bounces around with different girls that he meets over the internet and sleeps around. He makes fake profiles just to dislike other paranormal investigators stuff. He’s an… Read more »
Tim Wood the Fraudster
1 year 5 months ago
Tim Wood scams people for their money. He finds people through the internet and within the paranormal industry and uses them. He thinks he’s some sort of paranormal celebrity when really he’s just an ugly punk who lies through his teeth to get whatever he wants out of others. That is why his nose is bigger than his face, because he is a compulsive liar. He sets up fake fundraising and says that it’s for things like hurricane relief, or to replace tomb stones in a vandalized graveyard, or to do investigations, and then he takes that money and goes… Read more »
