A truly disturbing new video from Brazil is currently going viral with the people of Reddit. (They love being scared.) It was posted Tuesday morning with the title "Creepy cam footage of forcefully slamming door at Brazilian morgue."

I knew fire extinguisher ghosts were real!

The pacing and cinematography of this video are so perfectly scary, it's tempting to think this is fake. Why do the lights go out at precisely the right moment? But as of right now, all signs point to this video being genuine—with one major caveat.

The description of the YouTube video (and this tweet, which went viral on Portuguese-language Twitter) identify it as taking place in the morgue of the Legal Medical Institute in Cuiabá, Brazil. But internet sleuths have discovered that this is not true. It wasn't even at a morgue. Here's a Brazilian news crew investigating the actual location of the clip.

The video was actually recorded by caretakers at the Center for Comprehensive Care for Children and Adolescents in Araucária, Paraná (also Brazil). That agency has confirmed this, and is launching an investigation into the video and any ghouls who may or may not be involved.

If you're rolling your eyes right now and thinking that the people of Brazil are just superstitious, you're right. Their president, Michel Temer, just moved out of his official residence because of "ghosts."

That being said, this video is real. Ghosts are out there and they want your soul.
