Canadian rapper Tom MacDonald had a spooky experience when he explored the Kamloops Tranquille Sanatorium to shoot a music video.

“We had a long shooting day ahead of us, but Tranquille felt like it was some sort of portal to an ultimate dimension, that work came second and we just wanted to explore,” MacDonald said in a YouTube video, posted Oct. 20, 2020.

MacDonald said he and his crew “we were freaked the f*** out.”

They decided to shoot a scene in one of the concrete halls, but then the crews began to hear noises.

“I am not kidding you, somewhere out there, beyond where our lights could reach— footsteps,” MacDonald said.

Crews packed up their gear, and shot the video elsewhere, but before they left for the night, they saw a large, shadowy figure in one of the buildings.
