Haunting moment Second World War ventriloquist doll BLINKS caught on camera by spooked collector

Haunting video footage has captured the creepy moment a ventriloquist doll locked in a glass box appears to blink and move its mouth.The clip was filmed by spooked collector Michael Diamond, from Liverpool, who said he has "no explanation" for why 1940s dummy Mr Fritz appears to move on its own.Filmed at his home during the early hours of September 20, the 48-year-old's footage shows the glass door of the Second World War doll's cage swing open.Mr Fritz then appears to not only move its eyes - but move its mouth up and down.Michael has insisted the video is not a stunt, and since capturing the apparent paranormal activity, has locked Mr Fritz away under a blanket and heavy chains.The father-of-two has owned the doll since July after being given it as a gift by a local militaria collector.Michael admits he's freaked out by the footage, filmed by a camera he set up after noticing the dummy's latched box kept opening when left unattended."When I first watched the video back I had a weird feeling in my stomach", said entertainer, Michael."I wasn't completely surprised because what has been happening with the door."At least once or twice a week I noticed the door kept coming off its latch.

I decided to set up the camera for fun just to see if anything would happen."When something actually did I got a weird feeling in my gut, it's hard to describe."I was really taken back by it and I did have a strange feeling."I wouldn't say I'm scared of Mr Fritz but I am wary of it."Showman, Michael, travels the country performing stunts on stage and takes with him a a showcase museum full of weird and wonderful collectors items.His haud of odd bits and bobs include taxidermy animals, spiritual props, skulls and ancient weaponry.Michael keeps Mr Fritz in what he calls his 'freak room' at the family home where he stores all of his collector items.He has owned the dummy for just a few months and was given to him as a gift by a fellow collector in Liverpool.Mr Fritz has a mysterious past but is understood to have been made by an American prisoner of war during the 1940s and has been owned by several collectors over the years.Michael believes the prisoner worked as a ventriloquist before being taken prisoner in the war and said the dummy was made to entertain other prisoners in the camp.In recent weeks Michael said he has noticed the door on Mr Fritz latch-style glass door kept swinging open.Intrigued as to why, he decided to set up a camera in the hope of finding an answer.Michael, who is married to Sally, 46 and has two children, Amber, 19 and Caleb, 11, said: "The door was being opened once or twice a week and I knew it was strange."I set up the GoPro just to see what it would capture.

I did it on two nights over the 19th and 20th (September) and watched it all back at once."You can see on the first night the door swing open."On the next night you can see the eyes move before the door opens and again afterwards.The eyes flicker and his mouth moves up and down slightly."My wife and daughter both hate it.

I get why people don't like it and think it might be scary but I'm not intimidated by it."I want to give it a permanent home.

I get emotionally attached to my collections."Mr Fritz was apparently taken to America shortly after the end of the Second World War and before coming to the UK, was owned by an antiques shop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.Michael said he can not explain the reason for Mr Fritz's creepy movements and believes the cause of it is not "evil".He said: "What's the explanation is the one million dollar question isn't it?"I have no idea myself, I don't even know where to start."There's no open windows in the room and no airflow.

The door is on a latch so shouldn't just swing open."I have told Sally and Amber about it and they don't like it at all."To stop it from happening I've chained the box up and covered it in a blanket."
