Paranormal movies are great to watch because they tend to tap into our imagination of the unknown. These films tend to provide us with an escape from reality, making us experience a rollercoaster of emotions. Jessica Alba makes her fans realize how paranormal movies are worth watching with her 2008 film The Eye, where she encounters supernatural entities.
While, the idea of an encounter with a supernatural entity sounds eerie, as their unexplainable nature and spine-chilling appearances contribute to the fear factor of a person.

Jessica Alba’s Encounter With A Paranormal Entity

Such was with the Sin City actress, Jessica Alba when she encountered a ghost in her childhood home.
During an interview with Sunshine Daily, the actress recalled the time when she was 17, and an entity attacked her, which scared her so much that she could not call for help.
“I had no idea what it was. I felt this pressure and I couldn’t get up, I couldn’t scream, I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t do anything. Something definitely took the covers off me and I definitely couldn’t get off the bed, and then, once I did, I screamed, ran to my parents’ room and I don’t think I spent many nights in that house ever again!”
Alba continued that she was sure that there was a ghost in her parents’ house, which she can not explain to other people. However, her parents got their house blessed and started burning sage after the horrifying encounter.
“There was definitely something in my parents’ old house. I don’t know what it was. I can’t really explain it. But they got it blessed and they burned sage and stuff since then.”
Despite moving out of her childhood home, the actress has admitted how even after so many years, she gets nightmares about the incident which has shaken her to her very core.
