  1. An old porcelain doll’s head turns and her eyes seem to follow you as you move around the room, but it only seems to move when no one is looking.
  2. The old clock that hasn’t been wound in years begins ticking and chimes on the hour.
  3. The antique radio comes to life playing a channel from 1952. It’s not even plugged in.
  4. The 1980’s push button phone begins to ring. It’s not plugged in, either. No one is there.
  5. The electric fan turns itself on and begins to oscillate. At least it’s plugged in.
  6. The living room electronics (TV/VCR, DVD player, and stereo) turn themselves on.
  7. All of the paintings in the room are facing the wall. If turned around, they face the wall again if left alone. (Paintings could also be mirrors, tapestries, etc.)
  8. The dining room chandelier is always lit dimly. Even with dead lightbulbs.
  9. The kitchen or bathroom faucets appear to pour blood, but only for a brief moment. (Usually about as long as it takes someone to see it and panic.)
  10. The patterns on the wallpaper rearrange themselves when no one is in the room.
  11. A loud noise is heard and all of the furniture in the room is stacked in the center.
  12. All of the cabinets and closets fly open and spill their contents onto the floor.
