It was too infrequent and too jerky to be the air currents in the house; and after resetting the door multiple times, it would never move the same way. When I pulled out my camera, the movement would stop; but while me and my fiance' were trying to go to sleep, the door slammed shut. Here's a video of some slight movement I captured, you can tell it's not wind by the way it moves back and forth.
TheElliotBee - Welcome to the forum.
One door moving, does not a 'haunting' make. In other words, it looks like you've got a lightweight, poorly installed interior door. Not having the molding on the jam can allow air from anywhere in the house to circulate through the walls. Those lightweight veneer doors react to moisture, temperature changes and just about anything that happens during the course of a normal day and night. It also looks as if it may not be hung correctly as well since the wood is scraped around the door latch.
Now I'm not saying that it's poor carpentry that's the problem, but that would be my first guess here. Also if you want to try to capture film footage of suspicious activity, you'll need to get a full view of the door to prove there are no strings or wires attached to the object. If the problem persists, I'd buy a door jam at the dollar store.
I've lived in more than a couple haunted houses over the years; places actually written about in sources like Ghost of the Prairie and I have to second Ninja's points. Keep some records on happenings, both of you. If you can afford to do it, set-up web cams around your house in those areas where things happen so as to create a film log (audio is also a good thing) Understand, having cams in each room that show the entire area is important in that it will negate the idea of trickery i.e. you being in the room pulling threads or whatever other guesses people may make.
Research the property and the people tied to it; not just previous owners but any information you can find about the plot itself as well as the neighborhood and any additional tales tied to the paranormal.
I've investigated dozens if not hundreds of hauntings over the years and very, very few prove to be even remotely genuine in the sense of not having some form of explanation behind them. I won't go into details as to what you need to look for in that it will cause you to psychologically manifest such things. If the door phenomena is real however, it is just the very tip of the proverbial iceberg; fasten your seat-belts, get the research done, and collect as much documentable footage as you can -- eye witness accounts don't carry a lot of weight when you present such stories to the skeptical mind, even paranormal investigators will question such accounts if they are honest and have some sense of integrity. So dot your i's and cross your t's
I'm with Craig on the "fasten your seat-belts". IF, and I do mean "IF", there is something to this particular situation you will start to notice it more and more. Not necessarily that the activity will pick up but you'll now be looking for this sort of thing.
Even the so called professional ghost hunters don't find anything that would constitute proof, so don't feel bad if all you get is a bunch of questionable evidence. It happens.
Ninja, if I didn't know better, I'd swear you're coming across to the lighter side!
Not at all, just eliminating the practical solutions to an existing problem first. If I wanted to claim paranormal activity in my current house I could easily convince the average person that this place is haunted. I have a plethora of weird things that happen. All of which I have found a practical reason for their existence.
Does this include the fact that you're living there? I've found that to be a major factor in most of the weird places I've resided in
Not that I can tell. The house that I was born in was haunted by my own grandmother. I always wonder if she ever left after the family moved. I never heard from her again, nor did my mom & dad. The next two homes were...shall we say "normal", then I moved into a home that once again had activity. The house that I currently reside has no activity except for the occassional visit from Mr. Bill but that's because he visits his dogs regularly, so it's not just me.
When Mr. Bill died, he had 7 dogs. The person who rented his home got Mr. Bill's #1 pup. After about a year in the house he refused to go upstairs due to the weird banging and voices. I adopted Mr. Bill's favorite little pup and she will on occassion start playing in the family room with someone I can't see or hear. I don't find this strange nor do I find it paranormal but it is a bit weird but then again, so is this dog. Then two friends adopted two other pups and of course Mr. Bill's son stays in touch with everyone of the doggie parents. We usually see each other at large gatherings here and have found that all the pups play with an invisible friend on occassion. We started calling each other when this happens and it happens on the same night and about the same time. It's become a joke with all of us and we simply say to each other, "Mr. Bill stopped by last night". I found out that the last time this happened (about two months ago) that the son's wife found pics of Mr. Bill spread out on their dining room table one morning after we got a visit. The pics were not theirs and of course were not there when they went to bed that night. Mr. Bill had stayed with him to die with family in their home. She freaked. I laughed.
I doubt it's me as I don't care much for dealing with dead people unless they can clean my house or cut my lawn. They usually just wake me up or move my stuff so they serve no purpose. Being raised in a house with a dead grandmother sort of makes this stuff normal for me. For visitors who get the occassional glimpse, not so much.
