The Woman in the Chair

10 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have always had a vivid imagination as a kid. Often times, I would see and hear things that were unexplainable, but I would just brush it off. However, there were a couple of specific experiences I had as a little girl that I will never quite shake. They had frightened me to my very core-and to this day, at the age of 26, I still have an uneasy feeling in the dark. That dead silent dark when you’re in bed, wide awake and it’s just way too quiet in the house. The only thing you can hear is your heart beating like a drum from your anxiety. You hope and pray you’ll start to fall asleep soon and drift into a blissful dream state. But that uneasy feeling never

The Shapeshifter in the Forest

04 December 2018 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is actually a story my dad told me. It happened to him when he was a kid. My dad lived in a small town in Mexico. He was nine years old at the time and because my grandfather was up here in Arizona, he had to get a job to help put food on the table. The year was 1957. He was walking back home. The distance from the market he helped at and his house was approximately about 3 miles. He had to walk through an avocado grove and then cross a dirt road to get to his house. It was late Fall and it got dark pretty early so when he was heading home at around 8 pm it was already very dark. As he made his

A Childhood of Spirits

01 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Until the age of 13, I lived with my parents in a two bedroom apartment in Philadelphia. The apartment was actually the second story of a three-story house. Our landlord lived on the 1st floor, my family on the 2nd, and a single mother and her young daughter on the 3rd. I lived in constant fear, at night time at least, due to the many and varied occurrences that shaped my outlook on the paranormal for the rest of my life. When I say may occurrences I mean many, but four stand out to me the most. The first, and the most frightening to me, happened one night while I was in bed. We had a small dog that would lay at the foot of my bed, under the covers

So, before my grandmother moved closer to where my parents and aunts and uncles live now, she used to live in a big, double house a few hours south of us. The house was huge, which made it a TON of fun for me and my cousins when we were younger and would spend the night. It was the perfect place to play hide and seek, or go on secret spy missions with our walkie talkies. However, the house had sort of an eerie feel to it, especially at night time. You know, that sort of..”man I really don’t want to look around the corner” kind of feel? Like going to be there? Well back when I was younger, before she had her dog, they swore up and down

My Family and Our Ghosts

19 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’m currently 21, and I know that my childhood house is haunted. Since I was little I had always heard strange things, weird noises at night and strange feelings when I was alone. But as I got older, I began to experience more. Both me and my brother slept in the basement. My two sisters and parents slept upstairs. My grandparents on my fathers side had passed before I had gotten the chance to meet them. And recently we lost my grandfather on my mothers’ side. My fathers parents had lived in the house before my parents moved in. The year after I graduated high school, I took a year off to work and figure my life out. This was about 5-years ago. It was a week after all my

The Thing Under the Street Lamp

15 November 2018 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So this is not my story its my old reading teacher’s, even so I think its kinda creepy. I’m going to call him Sam and his brother John. Sam and John always went outside in the evening to ride their bikes around the block, one day something weird happened. As they where riding around they passed by the houses to go to The Hill, which was a steep hill that was fun to ride down. As they approached the hill Sam got off his bike to climb up but his brother stopped. As he looked up to see what John was looking at he saw something under the orange hue street lamp. It was tall and slender wearing torn up clothing facing the other way from them. It very slowly

The Old Mining Town

12 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Several years ago, I lived in an old mining town in the southwest. The small town had an interesting history, a mining massacre nearby, Bat Masterson and Kit Carson had lived there at one time as well. So it’s expected that there might be a few ghosts here and there…and there were. My husband and I moved to this small town because he took a teaching position. Rentals were hard to find but eventually we lucked out and found a small attic apartment in an old converted house. There were three apartments, two downstairs on the main level and then ours in the attic. It was quaint and cozy, each apartment had its own baseboard heat, no AC but plenty of windows. At first, I didn’t feel anything strange about

True Stories

08 November 2018 | Your Stories

I have a few stories i’d like to share. Most of these stories have happened to members of my family I live in Dorset in the UK. When i was younger, my Mum and Dad had gotten divorced and my Dad moved out. Fast forward 4 years, when I was 8, my two brothers and I stayed round his house. My younger brother, who was 2 at the time, started pointing to the wall saying “man on wall, man on wall!” He was laughing and smiling so it couldn’t have been anything bad. After a minute or two, my brother had told us that the man had gone. I can’t remember if we spoke to him about this “man”, but 16 years later it still creeps me out. This story

My Great Grandfather Saw a Headless Ghost

05 November 2018 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I live in a village in Sweden called Brattfors. This village has a long history of ghost sightings and of sightings of weird creutures. My family has lived in this village for centuries and many of my friends and family including myself have a history of seeing ghosts and weird figures. But I wanna share a story that my dad told my when I was younger. The story is an frightening encounter that my great grandfather told my dad when he was a child. When my great grandfather was younger he used to walk between his farm and the main part of the village. The route to the main part of the village was a path that went on for about four miles before you got the main part of

I Spent A Night in a Graveyard

02 November 2018 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Well, kind of. We actually went on a series of nights, most recently Halloween, and that time I went alone. Why go to a glitzy, Hollywood-induced costume party when you can celebrate it the old-fashioned way with a good old ghost hunt? A proper stake-out with coffee and biscuits. We went armed with a torch, digital camera, voice recorder, and of course our own senses and judgment – probably the most important tool of all, but also the one most prone to error. Amateurish tech by proper ghost-hunting standards I know, but you have to start somewhere. As with my previous tale, this one comes from the Scottish town of Troon, specifically an old graveyard and church ruins on the outskirts called Crosbie Kirkyard. It dates back to 1681 but

My Haunted Childhood Home

25 October 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was a kid I grew up in what I truly believe was an evil place. Strange noises, weird feelings, and yes, apparitions. I remember it would be beautiful, sunny days, but when you walked into our home, something changed. It was this creepy quiet. Even though you couldn’t see it, you could definitely feel it. The energy there was dark. One night I woke up in the middle of the night to my Mom crying to my Dad. I heard her telling him that she saw an image of my Dad just staring at her. She said the apparition had no legs. It was just from the waist up. My Brother saw an evil apparition of me in his bedroom doorway at least two times. He said it

The Haunted Trailer Home

22 October 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

My husband, my daughter and I lived in a rental 1996 Double Wide Mobile Home when I was pregnant with my second daughter. It was a big improvement from our tiny apartment and we quickly set about making the place our own. The house, though a bit outdated was nice, and we had no complaints. However, things began to change with the birth of our youngest daughter. My experience took place around 2:30 am I was asleep in bed with both my 3 year old and my baby. I heard a very loud thud in the kitchen, then silence. My dog also heard it and sat at alert next to the kids. I grabbed a wooden dowel used to secure a faulty window and crept into the kitchen. I saw

The Angel Statue Stole my Soul

16 October 2018 | Your True Encounters

I live in a relatively boring town in England; I’m sure everyone says that about their town but nothing interesting ever happens here. However we do have many myths and legends; just like any town. Some are “official” and have roots in real life events – the priory and convent for example have tunnels that connect them where, a few years back, excavations found many many small skeletons. They were baby skeletons and while some were not fully formed, the vast majority were. It was theorised that the nuns and especially the monks were not so pious after all. One of my favourite legends is that the four horsemen of the Apocalypse will ride through this town when the end of all times comes – all I can say is

A Creepy Halloween

12 October 2018 | Your True Encounters

My wife and I live in a small central Oklahoma oil town. It’s nearly crime-free, but not quite Mayberry. The nest has been empty for years. The past few years someone(s) have rung our doorbell late at night, 9:30 – 10:30. The first couple of times this happened I opened the door. Finding no one on the front porch I walked around the outside of our house looking for a prankster. Didn’t see anything, but half expecting to hear a giggle from our shrubs. Nothing. Those doorbell events never prepared my wife and me for our creepiest Halloween night ever. On Halloween night it has became inconvenient for us to buy expensive candy, then get up and down for Trick-or-Treaters every time the doorbell rings. Typically, we go into our

The Move

03 October 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

While home on mid-tour leave from deployment a few years ago, I decided to rent a house in a safer neighborhood for myself, my daughter and my grandson. We found a cute rambler further out in the suburbs. The day we moved in, we were moving yard toys through the front door straight through the sliding door to the back yard. As we went through the sliding door, we would close it to keep my grandson from running in and out. The first time out the sliding door, it locked, leaving us to climb over the fence to go back around and inside the house. We didn’t have a key for the fence gate lock yet. The next few times we went through the sliding door, the same thing would
