On the night of February 10 1970 in South Vietnam’s Hậu Nghĩa Province, the jungles came to life with a seemingly omnipresent racket of eerie funeral music!

Exploiting a traditional Vietnamese belief that spirits can never be in peace until their bodies are buried, the noises were produced during the Vietnam War by North America’s Psychological Operations division.

Speaking of messages from beyond the grave, on the night of February 10 1970 in South Vietnam’s Hậu Nghĩa Province, the jungles came to life with a seemingly omnipresent racket of eerie funeral music, booming laughter, powerful shrieks and sorrowful wailing.

Piercing through this creepy cacophony of ghostly noises, were otherworldly and echoing voices from a young girl and a dead Vietnamese man warning his still living comrades that he was currently in hell and that they should return home immediately, lest they end up like him.

Sounds terrifying…except it was all man-made and there’s no mystery as to who created this frightening recording. Exploiting a traditional Vietnamese belief that spirits can never be in peace until their bodies are buried, the noises were produced during the Vietnam War by North America’s Psychological Operations division.

The audio was blasted over loudspeakers by light air crafts as they passed over Vietnamese villages in the hope that superstitious inhabitants and Vietcong soldiers would believe that the voices were coming from their ancestors and that they would follow the message’s instructions and retreat.

Though the recording is not genuine, it’s still none-the-less creepy and even a little disturbing with the translation of what is being said.

OMG! Superstitious or not, in a forest or jungle at night this must have been absolutely terrifying!

  1. This is a weapon but it turned out to be a Warning for the Viet Cong. How scary! The wandering soul of the viet cong member tells those who are alive to go home to their loved ones, if they’re not coming home, they’ll be ending up like him.
