As far as pranks go, having a man dressed up as an owl monster creep up on people checking out an abandoned children's hospital is pretty good.
This haunting was set up by Scottish filmmaker Lawrie Brewster as promotion for his new movie, the appropriately titled Lord of Tears. He explains the planning that went into it:
"The St Mary's Children's Hospital prank was carefully set up over a period of several weeks, where we assessed how often visitors went to the hospital and what times they were most likely to appear."
"Once we were confident that our unfortunate victims were most likely to appear during a certain day and time, we lay in wait."
