Ghosts, cemeteries have positive energies: Tim Burton

London, March 7 (IANS) Hollywood filmmaker Tim Burton doesn’t believe it is rare to have experiences with ghosts and says he finds cemeteries “positive” places.

The 51-year-old claims to have had experiences with the supernatural, which he insists is not uncommon, reports contactmusic.com.

“I’ve seen things and felt things. I think most people do. I think it’s just how much you suppress it. I don’t go out and say, ‘Oh, my god, I was abducted by a UFO,’ or, ‘I’ve seen these ghosts’. You feel an energy,” he said.

The “Alice in Wonderland” filmmaker also claims to find cemeteries “positive” places.

“Most people say about graveyards, ‘Oh, it’s just a bunch of dead people; it’s creepy.’ But for me, there’s an energy to it that is not creepy or dark. It has a positive sense to it,” he said.

However, the eccentric filmmaker doesn’t believe anyone can force a spirit to reveal themselves.

“I think anytime you try, it ain’t gonna happen. It always seems to occur when you’re sort of open but not thinking about it. I’ve never held a seance,” he said.
