In a scene straight out of Luigi's Mansion, shocking footage appears to show the moment a ghost hunter was thrown across the room by an angry spirit.

Rebecca Palmer, who is married to ghost hunter Sean Reynolds, claimed to be possessed by the spirit of a dead child... that old chestnut. Watch what happened here:

As he reached out to his wife, while the pair were filming a new show at the New Mills Art Theatre in Stockport, Greater Manchester, he appeared to fall suddenly to the floor. But Sean claims that he was 'thrown across the room' by the 'static energy' from the ghost of the dead kid.

Although the incident scared the shit out of her, she said she felt honoured that the 'spirit' had chosen her as a vessel.

Rebecca, 34, from Liverpool, said: "As soon as we walked in the room, I could feel there was something different in there, a different kind of energy.

"I kept asking the others 'do you feel that?' but nobody else could sense anything.

"Then I started to hear a voice - a little kid saying something. I couldn't hear what they were saying but it was definitely a child's voice. I could hear them chatting and laughing.

"I asked but nobody else could hear it, I felt like I was going mad. Then suddenly this happened.

"I can't remember much of what happened. I remember I felt like a child but it was all a haze.

"When I came out of it, it felt like when you have been dreaming and you remember fragments but can't piece it all together.

"It was quite frightening. I couldn't stop shaking and I felt really weak and drained.

"When we were going around the rest of the rooms I felt the little girl was still with me, following me. I kept getting waves of how she was feeling, she was so sad.

"As a mum, it was really difficult knowing I had been taken over by the spirit of a child who had died. It really did affect me emotionally. It was really upsetting.

"Even though I was very shaken after the event, I felt empowered and honoured that an actual spirit had chosen me as a vessel to communicate with.

"It was so shocking watching the video and seeing what had gone on.

"I couldn't believe the energy had been so powerful it had knocked Sean off his feet and thrown him away from me. Why would it do that? It is so strange.

"I try never to doubt the power of the spirit world and the night at the theatre proves just how dangerous the paranormal world can be."

The ghost hunters also used a device called an Ovilus which they believe spirits can manipulate to produce words.

Sean, 34, claims the Ovilus produced the words 'deplete', 'fifteen', 'enough' and 'mummy'.

Sean said: "It was so emotional for me seeing Bex like that. I have never seen anything like it before.

"I knew I needed to try to communicate with the spirit but I was also really worried about how it could affect Bex and whether we would be able to get the child to leave her alone.

"It came as quite a shock and I felt quite helpless. One minute I was sat in the room with my partner and the next she just wasn't Bex at all anymore.

"When I reached out to touch her I felt this strong static charge go through me. It was this powerful force pushing me back and it threw me to the ground.

"The whole team went into a panic. I don't think any of us have experienced an energy so powerful before. It completely lifted me off my feet.

"It was quite frightening but at the same time so intriguing. I don't think the spirit was negative, just frightened.

"We are really lucky that Paul was called up to help her. He's really experienced, especially when it comes to getting spirits to leave people. He's such a valuable member of the team."

Scary shit, aye?
