This October we are going to bring you some of the most interesting #true paranormal cases we can find. You can discover more true, terrifying accounts of the paranormal right here. A short distance north of Pontefract is the town of South Shields. It was here, in the summer of 2006, that a young couple and their three-year-old son were terrorized by a nasty spirit. Their real names haven’t been revealed, but they’re typically known as Marc and Marianne. The haunting began in December 2005 with the otherworldly feng shui typical of poltergeist infestations.

The Tugging Ghost of Alabama

25 August 2017 | August 2017, Creepy places, Your Stories

This morning I felt my hair being pulled. I normally experience this only in my house. It especially happens in my room, home office, and kitchen, and it always seems to happen while I’m alone. Today I felt two tugs at my hair while I was in my room. I had been trying to sleep and then out of nowhere I felt a tug. I have medium length hair so at one point I thought it was just static or my hair getting caught on something. But then I noticed it happening more often. There was one time when I was alone, listening to music in my room and I felt a tug. Whatever was tugging at my hair pulled my hair so hard that a strand broke off. I

The Ghostly Child Who Haunts My House

02 August 2017 | August 2017, Creepy places, Ghost Hunting, Your Stories

The first incident took place several years ago while I was still a child. I was in my bed, in the middle of the night, facing the right side of the wall. I turned around to where the entrance of my bedroom is and in the corner of the room was a full body apparition of a young girl, she had black curly hair, and was wearing a white dress. She was standing near the door, I was frozen and I was fully awake, but it scared me. I quickly hid under my covers and peeked out again to see that she was gone. She was. Nothing else happened until recently, I have been hearing whispers, footsteps, and banging at night while everyone is asleep. Nobody else has heard anything.

The Ghost Child: A True Paranormal Experience

26 July 2017 | Creepy places, July 2017, Your Stories

This experience happened to me several years ago at our old house. It was during the day and I was home alone standing in the kitchen. I felt like someone was watching me from across the living room. I turned around and saw a young boy standing there staring straight ahead at me. I could clearly see the top half of him however cannot remember if I saw anything below the waist. The moment I screamed he disappeared. I wasn’t scared just startled. I thought the boy was wearing older looking clothes. I googled the fashion from the 1800s to early 1900s for children and it looks very similar with a collared shirt and those particular hats. The boy was probably aged from 5-6 years old. I wish I could

The old road from Ashford to Faversham in Kent, passes by the tiny hamlet of Sheldwich, signposted, but blink and you will miss it as you drive by. On moonlit nights, this is probably a good thing. Few will pass this way on foot at the full moon, and those who do so have been considered by the local folk to be foolhardy or at best, deeply in need of help. You see, Sheldwich holds secrets, secrets of fear, wicked doings and age old mystery. The village is not big but is pretty, and is set around an attractive village green, a space which in summer is used for community activities such as local school sports, car boot sale flea markets, and amateur cricket matches, it is a pretty and

“We Want You Gone…” The Living Hell of the Thornton Heath Poltergeist

16 November 2016 | Creepy places, November 2016, Poltergeist, Your Stories

In the early 1970s in Thornton Heath, England, a family was tormented by poltergeist phenomena that started one August night when they were woken in the middle of the night by a blaring bedside radio that had somehow turned itself on. Not only had the radio managed to turn itself on, but it had tuned itself to a foreign-language station. This was the beginning of a string of events that lasted nearly four years, terrifying one family to breaking point. A lampshade repeatedly was knocked to the floor by invisible hands. During the Christmas season of 1972, an ornament was hurled across the room, smashing into the husband’s forehead. As one member of the family sat down, the Christmas tree started to shake violently. The New Year didn’t bring any

If you’re ever travelling through Alabama during your vacation time… you may find yourself face-to-face with the very essence of evil. A place called Sloss Furnaces.

From skyscrapers in New York to cars being built in Detroit, America came to rely on Sloss Furnaces for providing materials needed to produce thousands of products.  But this success came at a dangerously high price… In the early 1900’s, James “Slag” Wormwood, was foreman of the “Graveyard Shift”, the period between sunset and sunrise, where a crew of nearly one hundred and fifty workers toiled to keep the furnace fed. During the summer months, temperatures throughout

The Spirits Who Won’t Leave Me Alone

26 October 2016 | Bizarre, Creepy places, Evidence?, G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Ghost Hunting, October 2016, Your Stories

A few years ago, I was shaken awake by a figure of an elderly woman leaning over me in my bed. It scared me so much that I rolled across our bed and over my husband and ended up on the floor! I would see her occasionally in the hallway when I would get up during the night to go to the kitchen. She would just pass me and disappear into our hallway closet.  I saw her several times standing over my bed too and decided that I had to try and communicate with her. The last time I saw her, I told her she needed to move on. She disappeared into the closet as usual and has not been seen since. After that incident, I became a firm believer

A Strange, Grey Demon In Houston, Texas

25 October 2016 | Creepy places, October 2016, Vampires, Your Stories

This took place in the mid 80’s in Houston, Dallas. My wife and I had separated and I was living by myself in a house we had bought together as a vacation place. I lived close to my parents’ home. The bedroom was at the back of the building with a hallway that led to the back door. It was about 1am in the morning. I’d just gotten back from a late shift and I was tired. I laid down on my bed and I was almost asleep when I heard the backdoor knob jiggling. I knew the door was locked, but I was a little unnerved. I closed my eyes for a few seconds thinking that it would go away. But I have a bad habit of having to

The Demon Who Wouldn’t Let Go

24 October 2016 | Creepy places, October 2016, Your Stories

My friends and I used to dabble with the occult. We would light candles in graveyards to try and summon ghosts, said the Lord’s Prayer backwards at midnight in front of a mirror, prayed to the Devil on Halloween. We just thought it was a bit of fun, we didn’t ever believe in any of it. One night my friends brought a Ouija board around the house. We didn’t expect it to work, and just toyed with it. We were all shocked when it started working. A spirit came to us, but wouldn’t tell us its name. It started ignoring questions from others—and only answering my questions. It told me that it was my “friend” and started to believe that this entity wanted to be good to me. It made

The Haunted School Bathroom: Are Schools Really Haunted?

23 September 2016 | Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

When I was 7 years old I used to be scared of going into my school bathroom alone, this is because every time I was in there by myself I would see a young girl standing in the shower. She wore a grey school skirt, long white socks, black shoes, white polo shirt and a jumper. I tried ignoring her for about half a year, as I thought I was going mad because nobody else saw it, but she never moved. I spoke to my mum about it, I was so scared even though the young girl hadn’t moved, and my mom told me to talk to the ghost, I did talk to her, and I asked her to leave me alone, but she did nothing. I saw her constantly throughout

The Disappearing Smoking Ghost: Have You Encountered Anything Like This?

22 September 2016 | Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

I worked for a development company that had purchased an entire neighborhood of Victorian homes to renovate and resell. Every home for a two block radius was empty except for the one that I lived in; which was near completion and was going to be used as the model home. One afternoon, I was almost out of cigarettes and decided to walk to a corner store a few blocks away. Keep in mind that this was an out of the way neighborhood, there were no workmen around, all of the homes were vacant, and the entire area was deserted. I had only walked about one block, and was walking looking down at the side walk lost in thought when a few feet ahead of me I heard a voice say

The Las Vegas Sand Demon: Have You Seen It?

21 September 2016 | Bizarre, Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

This happened in the early 80’s. I was getting married for the first time. My wedding was to be in Las Vegas, so my fiancée and I drove up and were traveling on the freeway to Vegas. This happened on that freeway during our journey to Vegas. We were coasting along, talking about the wedding, when we both noticed something “white” start to cross the freeway in front of us. This figure was actually floating, and I honestly thought it was a piece of paper. I continued talking to my fiancée, but kept my eye on this thing when finally, we got right up to it and almost ran it over. At exactly the same time, we screamed, “What the hell is that?” What we saw was a miniature ‘devil’
