The cell part for Solitary seemed to say names, maybe fellow inmates? The names were Michael, Anthony, Emalia.

It's a bit reminiscent of Toluca Prison in Silent Hill 2, with all the decaying walls and such.

Ok when Shane asked if Jesus was there and the spirit responded to me it sounded like it said "I hope." instead of "I am not."

In James’ cell, after they heard the classical music, the voice sounded like it said the words “classical music” back at them

Eliz-Marie van Jaarsveld (20 hours ago)
At 17:47 it doesn't sound like "I am not". To me it sounded like "I own you" which, in my opinion, is either terrifying or kind of funny...

Shane is the suburban white Dad who says ‘this move is good for us’ and ignores everyone telling him the house is haunted until he gets dragged off and killed

Audrey Weber (1 day ago)
I get the feeling that Helen's death might not have been an accident? Idk anything about the real story or anything but the gun firing when it fell on the floor seems like a really unlikely situation. It's probably possible, but I think it's also possible she might've just committed suicide and the story about the accidental discharge was a coverup.
D Pepper (1 day ago)
Ryan needs a hug in this video :(
Jennifer Aguilar (1 day ago)
I heard 'don't laugh at me' so quick theory. What if James committed suicide because his cell mates made fun of him coupled with the fact he probably still had like 7 years to go on his sentence

27:15 I heard Vicose... My youtube channel name is Vicos3 (obviously) and my name is ryan. Too much coincidence
Amber Louise (2 days ago)
"i am not" - i heard something before they rewound and showed us what they picked up, i heard "i hope" and that to me is pretty scary tbh because they're asking if Jesus is there and the ghost is hoping he is - maybe they're looking for salvation and redemption from their crimes as they're in the chapel!

Harlie Andresen (3 days ago)
At 28:40 after Ryan stops talking does anyone else here a whisper?
Jackalyn Massof (3 days ago)
When they moved the chair they should have left and then later they should have checked on it to see if the "ghost" moved it.

Jaxx Jaxx (4 days ago)
I don’t like it how Ryan gets so rude and arrogant to the spirits and ghosts and stuff once’s he done the scariest part of the place. I get why he gets cocky and why he’s so elated when he’s done the scariest part, but he doesn’t need to mock the spirits when he’s leaving. I completely get why he acts like that, it’s just bothersome.
Clayton M (4 days ago)
Honestly, I hear "I hope not" rather than "I am not"

Any got the link to the turd photo on Instagram?
It sounds like the person outside the chapel says, "I hope not" to "Is Jesus here?"
**Shane's respectful season** Shane: "If you turn on those lights, you'll go to Heaven."

your mom (4 days ago)
Look at how big of a prison they are in and tell me you wouldn’t be scared too. Ryan is just scared and terrified and it explains his moody behavior.

I feel like they have a ton of spirits following them..
oliviaaclairee (4 days ago)
when they were in the room of the guy who burned himself alive, the radio definitely said "dont laugh at me"
Patrick Newman (4 days ago)
I have been there and It was so scary!!!
brooke Noneya (5 days ago)
I feel bad for James. He was sentenced to fifteen years, so he killed himself, hoping to escape that Hellhole, but then ended up trapped there for all time. That's a horrible situation.
