Every school has its own urban legends. They're almost never true, but this creepy video captured at a school in Ireland seems pretty legit—and it's so effing scary.

The clip, taken by a security camera in the hallway, was posted to Deerpark CBS's YouTube page and is currently petrifying the internet. In it, you'll see a set of lockers violently shaken, notebooks thrown across the hall by no one, and a wet floor sign totally destroyed.

Watch it in the bathroom just in case you pee your pants.

The video was taken at 3 a.m. on the first of October, when no one was in the school. Now, you might be thinking that the principal is just trying to prank everyone for Halloween, but according to him, the video is real.

"If it’s a prank we don’t know how it was done. Motion sensors were set off at this time, that’s how it was caught," principal Aaron Wolfe told UNILAD.

Apparently, this isn't the first time creepy things have happened at the school, which happens to be almost 200 years old.

"Our caretaker has worked in the school for over 30 years he recalls many stories of ‘paranormal activity,'" Wolfe explained.

"For example, on one occasion the school was hosting an exotic bird show, and the birds arrived the day before, because the organizers were worried that someone might break in and steal the birds, someone had to stay overnight. That person left the school in the middle of the night—they refused to stay any longer as they said that they heard ‘the last call’ being played on a trumpet—of course this could have just been the wind."

Good luck sleeping tonight.
