Ghosts & the Supernatural – The Lost Boys was filmed in Santa Cruz and after this movie was made, it became a haven for wannabe vampires. Besides the wannabe vampires, Santa Cruz is also known for it’s extreme paranormal activity found below the ocean waves and in the mountains.
Santa Cruz is a hotbed of paranormal activity. Of all things, UC Santa Cruz – Porter College is haunted. A student committed suicide and his apparition has been seen many times. Witnesses say that these sightings usually occur in the A Building. Ghost Identified: Suicide Boy. If you want to see objects flying around and you want to hear some strange odd sounds, then check out B Building’s 1st Floor. Students say that they feel something evil around. They at times feel they are being watched by some kind of negative force. Marion Santos says that the students call this entity The Dark One. At B Building’s 3rd Floor, students that have snoozed off to never-never land, only to be awakened to what feels like two hands around their throats. Joan Cisna says that she felt like she was being strangled and could see the outline of two black gloves around her neck. I will call this ghost: Black Gloves. Black Gloves is an appropriate name for a ghost that has a craving for strangling students while they are napping. In the Meadow, the apparition of a transient woman named Lily has been seen naked or wearing rags. So, if you are traveling to Santa Cruz, make sure to stop by UC Santa Cruz and visit their infamous specters. UC Santa Cruz infamous specters are: The Dark One; Suicide Boy; Black Gloves and Lily.
Around 1900, rumor has it that a murder occurred in the area of Adolph’s Restaurant – Fuji Restaurant. Because of this tragic event, patrons and workers have seen several apparitions lurking around. They are referred to as Adolph’s Restaurant Specters. After you dine at Adolph’s Restaurant, make sure to visit Graham Hill Road Cemetery – Santa Cruz Memorial Cemetery. There are many stories of ghostly activity at this cemetery. People have claimed to have seen faces appearing on the tombstones. Dark shadows have been seen darting around. Lots of orbs. A ghostly monkey like creature has been seen in the trees. This ghost is called: The Lurking Monkey. Another ghost is called ‘The White Figure’, it has been known to go after visitors and it will either push you, slap you, hit you or even touch you with a hot burning sensation. When you see The White Figure……RUN!! About 4.1 miles from Santa Cruz, stop by Capitola, California to see the haunted Rispin Mansion. It was built in 1922 by a real-estate baron. It has been left to ruin via fire and graffiti. In this paragraph section, ghosts identified are: Adolph’s Restaurant Specters; The Lurking Monkey and The White Figure.
SANTA CRUZ BOARDWALK:
I don’t know if the Santa Cruz Boardwalk is haunted, but I do know that three men known for visiting haunted houses and hunting down ghosts all over the country stopped by the Boardwalk to film a few scenes for an upcoming episode of “Ghost Adventures.”
Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin had a lot of fun with their fans while a film crew followed them around. Bagans went to school with “Lost Boys” star Corey Haim, who died in 2010 at age 38. Some of the scenes of the Boardwalk that will be in Ghost Adventures was also in the movie Lost Boys.
LIGHTHOUSE FIELD STATE BEACH:
Talked with one of the caretakers and he told me that he has never witnessed anything paranormal, but visitors have. One story is that a woman saw ghostly apparitions of a old man with a dog walking up the stairs. Deanna, Samra (Independent Ghost Hunter of Santa Clara Specter Seekers) and I visited this lighthouse, but made no observations of anything paranormal. Another note, Mark Abbott – watch keeper of the lighthouse died at the age of 18 in the open sea. They say that Mark Abbott also haunts the lighthouse.
The Haunting of Mission Santa Cruz, Mexico, 1708 to 1876
Mission Santa Cruz is very haunted. I suggest that you purchase the book: The Haunting of Mission Santa Cruz. This book is about Mission Santa Cruz when it was Mexico, and the California land grabs of Mission Santa Cruz, Villa de Branciforte and Rancho San Andres that took place more than 30 years after the end of the 1848 Mexican-American War. The murder of the Castro heirs to the more than 9,900 acres of ocean-front land, and the dismantling of the famous 160 room luxury hotel called, “The Magnolia Rose” has created a series of haunting. The Mexican-Spanish Anzarins “Guardians of the Vase” were murdered so abruptly that they travel between the relocated pieces of their once great “Victorian” mansions of Mission Santa Cruz Alta California.
There have been a multitude of reports of USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects) popping out of the ocean and into the skies. Could there possibly be a UFO base in the Monterey Bay? There have been reports of ghostly activity in the thick forested mountains of Santa Cruz. There are reports of Bigfoot being seen in the woods and the sounds of Bigfoot screaming or knocking on wood to communicate with other Bigfoot. It also seems that Bigfoot is connected to UFO activity. Wherever there are UFOs, Bigfoot is not too far behind, which causes me to think that Bigfoot may be an interdimensional creature or possibly an extraterrestrial.
There are people who claim that when walking in various areas of Santa Cruz, they feel they have walked into a vortex. Everything becomes surreal. Daniel Webber of San Jose says that he was preparing to hike through the woods of Santa Cruz and came upon a green mist, when he entered the green mist the trees were different. He could see what appeared to be an Indian man running with a spear through the woods. The green mist appeared again and he was back at his campsite.
