Charles Brandon claims he can see dead people. He wants you to see them, too.
Ever since the 50 year old moved into his Brooklyn home in 2010, he’s had frequent encounters with what he calls “paranormal beings.” Doors mysteriously open, cups are thrown and ghostly visions appear in his mirrors.
But Brandon doesn’t live in a “haunted house” like you see in the movies, he told AOL.com.
“There’s nothing special about this house — every home has dead people” he said. “Some are just weigh stations or portals for the dead.”
Brandon said he realized after a while that it was not his house that is particularly special or haunted — it’s him.
“They’re trying to get my attention because they think if they get my attention, they will be removed from the house,” he told AOL.com. “The powers that be will take them away. They don’t want to be here in this realm.”

He said he has been given a special gift through which he can telepathically communicate with the dead, but he doesn’t know how it happened.
“I think the spirits saw what I was going through — that I just kept taking all the bad things that happened in my life — and they were impressed,” he said. “I’m like a 21st century Job. I’ve been through every trial imaginable.”
Brandon claims he can summon spirits, and he thinks that anyone can see them when they are present.
He wants to share the spirits he sees in his home through his YouTube channel “A Brooklyn Haunting,” where he has shared some of his hundreds of videos:
