Demon (Most Dangerous Ghost Types)

A ghost like Demon is bound to be aggressive and that is exactly the case here. You can ask a question to it using an Ouija board but your sanity won’t lower so that is good. Check out our list of questions to ask ghosts to communicate with them right here. Use a Crucifix in the Ghost room to prevent its attacks.
