Director Of Lord Of The Rings Says He Once Saw A Ghost
Wellington film-maker Peter Jackson says he saw a real ghost once.
In London for the premiere of The Lovely Bones - a film he has directed from Alice Sebold's story in which a murdered teenage girl gives her viewpoint from heaven - Jackson said he did not know what a real soul was like.
But he told Britain's Channel 4 TV that while he could not swear the spirit in the movie was 100 percent accurate, he had seen a real ghost.
"It was genuine," said Jackson, who made a 1996 ghost movie, The Frighteners - co-written with his wife Fran Walsh - starring Michael J Fox.
His sighting was in an apartment he and his wife had in Wellington's Courtney Place opposite the St James Theatre, when they first met 20 years ago.
"I woke up one morning and there was a figure in the room, she was very scary, she had a screaming face, very accusatory, she was a lady about 50 years old," Jackson said.
"It was terrifying actually, a very scary image and she was at the end of the bed and she glided across the room and disappeared into the wall.
Whether we are talking about aliens, ghosts, spirits, and even many crypto-zoological beings, we are looking at the same supernatural properties- i.e. beings who communicate telepathically, who can float, pass over solid matter, appear and disappear at will and many, many more characteristics that have a supernatural residue. These beings are demonic and have been with us for a long, long time. In the scriptures, they are aptly called Lying Spirits. In all of these modern situations/ encounters (with the exception of crypto beings- not aware of it), these beings were not able to 'stand' at the name of Jesus (coming from the lips of a Believer).
