Delayed Delivery

22 February 2016 | February 2016

My grandpa had lived in the same house ever since he moved in with his parents at the age of 2. He grew up there and when he got married, his wife – my grandma moved in with him and they brought up their children there. I spent a lot of time there during my childhood and I always loved this place. But as the years went by, it was time for them to move to another place. There were many reasons, the flat was quite cold and wet in winter, also there was no elevator and the rent was pretty high, and when the day came when one of them was alone, it would be impossible to pay for it. Fortunately my grandma inherited a flat from her mother

Ghosts and Poltergeists Follow Me Around

19 February 2016 | February 2016

I have had something attached to me since I was in school. I have lived in California most of my life, but between the ages of 5 and 7 my family and I lived in Oklahoma. Every house we lived in that I can remember was haunted. When I was 12, we lived in a house with poltergeist activity. Things would fly across the room by themselves. Every night, my brother would see a shadow on his bedroom wall of a man who would always end up sitting next to her on his bed, breathing on him. Apparently the breathing was audible to him. Every night in my room, the closet door would open by itself, no matter what I put in front of it to keep it from happening.

When Doves Fly

17 February 2016 | February 2016

This story took place when I was around ten years old. My family lived in Phoenix, Arizona. I was the baby of the family and my brother and sisters were older and on their own. My home life was full of domestic abuse and my home life was less than pleasant. Anyway, one summer afternoon I was outside playing baseball with some friends and I decided to go inside to cool off and watch some TV because it was getting extremely hot outside. I lay down on my bed upstairs and began watching TV. The bedroom window was to the back of me and I was facing the TV to the opposite side. I was watching TV when all of a sudden something made me look up to the right

The Menace

15 February 2016 | February 2016

I live in an apartment in New Jersey with my mother, both her grandparents, my twin sister, and my younger brother. I have always believed the paranormal, and I have read several books on the matter. My own story happened when I was 14 years old and I was home alone in our apartment. I was lying on a couch in the TV room when from the kitchen I heard a laugh. I didn’t know if it was from a woman, or man, but I soon heard footsteps coming from the kitchen walking toward the living room. I sat up on the couch and waited for something to emerge, but nothing did. It was completely silent in the apartment. So I looked back at the TV and then I heard

The Burned Apparition

12 February 2016 | February 2016

When I was a young boy, my step father’s friend was house sitting his brother’s huge white-washed Colonial farmhouse. He invited us over to look at the house. Immediately that we went inside that house, I knew that there was something that I didn’t like about it, and it wasn’t just the owner’s two huge Great Danes who stood almost as tall as me and followed me wherever I went. Something evil lived in that house. A little later during a tour of the house, my suspicions were confirmed. “Do you want to hear about the man who built this place?” we were asked. My stepdad said “Sure,” and the friend went on. “They say the man who built this house was driven crazy by what he had seen during

House of Nightmares

10 February 2016 | February 2016

This started when my parents bought a house in a small town. My father was working in the city and my mother worked in a different city so I was the only one who got to actually live in our house. Sometimes my grandparents would accompany me and one or twice a week, my father  visited me. I was 10 years old then and they taught me how to live like an adult. One night, my father said that I should sleep in my room because I always slept in their bedroom. So I grabbed my pillows and went to lay in my own room.  This was the the first night that I had a nightmare. I cannot distinguish if it was really a nightmare because I can often feel that I

Haunted Bathroom?

09 February 2016 | February 2016

About twenty years ago I worked for a large company. The company had just completed a new department and I worked in that department. One day about a year after we had moved into this new wing, I went into the restroom and as I turned the corner, I noticed the stall door closed on the middle stall. The floor under the door looked dark like someone’s shadow was blocking any light. The stall doors naturally hung open, so I just assumed someone was inside the stall. I went into the first stall instead of the second, in order to maintain some privacy by keeping a stall between us. While in my stall, I listened and didn’t hear the other person make any noise. No flushing, hand washing, and no

Morgue Shadow

03 February 2016 | January 2016

Part of my job is to place bodies of deceased patients in the morgue. One night a few years ago, I was on assignment outside at 4:45am in the morning. When I just happened to see a large, black, triangle-shaped shadow come out of the sky and into the corner of the fourth floor wing of the hospital where our ICU unit for the critically ill is located. There were no planes overhead or any reasons for a shadow to appear at this time of night. This shadow appeared to have gone directly into the fourth floor wing. About half an hour later, I was sent to the morgue to place a deceased patient there. Since the incident that occurred outside was so odd in nature, I checked the time

A Visiting Skull

02 February 2016 | January 2016

We live in an old house that was built in the 1800’s. There is a long mirror above the bathtub that always gets some light from the hall. You can see from the mirror into the ante-room, and then into the hallway. I was sitting there one night and noticed that the mirror wasn’t reflecting into the hallway. It was grey, dark and looked as though it had been bricked up. It looked totally solid. I thought I was just falling asleep and seeing things—but something was coming through the cement. I kept watching. It was a skull. It slowly moved out of the mirror, looked into the hallway to make sure it was alone. I’m on the other side of the room, in the dark. It must have heard

I See Little People!

26 January 2016 | January 2016

Back during my childhood, I loved staying at my grandparents’ house in Tennessee. I remember their comfy beds, the rocking chair on the porch and I remember what I would call “the little persons.” I first saw them when I was five, or six. The porch backed onto the living room, and from the chair I could see into the kitchen. Hundreds of little people carpeted the floor. They weren’t fairy-like, but were just little tiny people. None of them were taller than my fingers. They weren’t paranormal in anyway. I knew they weren’t good, but they weren’t scary. They would surround the rocking chair and sing at me. Even when I got out of the chair and moved about they still stood around singing. I saw them for years—and

Auntie Says Goodbye?

14 January 2016 | January 2016

One day when my mother was quite young, perhaps in her early teens, she fell asleep during the afternoon, watching TV in the living room. When she awoke, she noticed her Aunt rising from the rocking chair in the living room to walk down the hallway to the kitchen. My Mum just assumed that her Aunt had come over while she was asleep and so she jumped out of bed yelling her name running down the hallway to catch up with her. As my Mum approached the kitchen however, he aunt wasn’t there – just the radio playing and her mother standing washing dishes. She asked, “Mom! Where did Auntie go? I just saw her come down here!” Her Mother replied, “Honey, you must have been having a dream! Auntie

Shadow People

12 January 2016 | January 2016

It was the early 90’s and my husband went to work out of town for about a month, or so. I had put my two daughters to bed and I was getting ready to go to sleep myself. From the room that I was sleeping in, you could see straight into our living room. In one of the corners, I used to see this shadow person that would always try to get my attention. I had seen it that night waving its shadow arms from side to side, as if it was trying to get my attention. I was so used to seeing it that I just ignored it. It really didn’t seem to mean me, or my family any harm. My daughters were already sound asleep and I was

Thai Terror

08 January 2016 | January 2016

I was meant to be working in the South China Sea, just off the coast of Thailand, for three days but found myself holed up in a dingy hotel room for six weeks, waiting for a series of Typhoons to pass through the area. Whilst the breaks between storms allowed some time for exploring the local area, there are only so many Temples, markets and beaches to keep one amused in a backwater fishing village. In any event, it wasn’t considered safe to be out when the Typhoons hit so much of the time was spent sitting out each storm in the hotel. It was during one of these long nights, power out, rain lashing the windows, themselves likely to fly loose under the sheer weight of the wind, that

Ouija Demon

07 January 2016 | January 2016

My story happened when I was 17 and I spent the night at a girlfriends home without telling my mom. My friend and her little sister asked if I wanted to play with the Ouija board, which I did knowing, being Catholic, that it was forbidden. Anyway, the next night, I went home and told my mom that I would not play with a Ouija board ever again and that’s when the TV suddenly changed to show a snowy picture. My mom and I were really spooked by that. Later that night, I went to bed late because I had a sore throat and I couldn’t really sleep. I had made tea and it was getting late, so I tried to to sleep. I was laying there when I felt

Phone Call From The Dead

02 January 2016 | January 2016

It was about 3pm in the afternoon in the year 1976. I was waiting for some friends to pick me up when I decided that I would call my friend, Myla, to ask why they were late. As I picked up the phone to call, I found that there was no dial tone so I decided to say hello, since during the 70’s, we had what you would shared ‘party lines’. These were often illegally connected to other peoples’ phone lines. But what I instead got was a friendly greeting from a friend named George. He was interested in Myla, but Myla already had a boyfriend. He started by asking me to tell Myla he loved her very much and was also sorry for making trouble for her and her
