The incredible moment a glass spontaneously exploded inside a "haunted" snooker bar has been captured on CCTV. The eerie footage shows a glass being placed on the bar table before mysteriously shattering - without being touched. It's not unknown that glass can shatter itself due to heat - but barmaid Kayleigh Woods, who was sitting yards form the blast - says the glass was cool. She believes that the Whitley Lodge Snooker and Sports Bar near Newcastle, run by her dad Richard, could be haunted, as Chronicle Live reports. Kayleigh said: "You hear noises in different rooms, and a few staff members have admitted they don't like going in after dark. "A lot of people have said they've heard stuff in the club. I've heard someone clear their throat when there was nobody else inside. "Whatever it is, I don't think it is bad or evil - but I think it could be haunted."

Millions of kids were caught like rabbits in the headlights when they first saw Watership Down. They gleefully settled down for a couple of hours of fluffy bunnies bounding around fields without a care in the world. The film soundtrack, featuring Art Garfunkel’s heavenly No1 hit, Bright Eyes, did nothing dispel the feeling it would be a warm, family-friendly movie. But the film was a desperate tale of survival – showing nature red in tooth and claw. Within the first ten minutes rabbits were being culled, just one of the scary scenes that lived on in the minds of many for years. This Christmas the BBC brings us a two-part reboot of Richard Adams’s story Each episode is 100 minutes long.

The rabbits are voiced by a cast of top British actors, including Sir Ben Kingsley, Olivia Colman, James McAvoy, Gemma Arterton, John Boyega … [Read more...] about Watership Down’s Gemma Arterton says remake is nowhere near as scary as original
