“Room 52” A true story

22 June 2024 | Audible Activity, Creepy places, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Michael Todd and I’m writing to you from Muldrow, Oklahoma. Per your post of 6-14-24, inviting individuals on your mailing list to submit a ‘creepy story’, I thought I would forward a brief, but rather frightening event I experienced a few years ago. I am the founder and lead investigator of ‘Spook Earth Paranormal’, based in Muldrow, Oklahoma. I’ve researched and investigated the paranormal for over 16 years. During this time frame, I’ve been scratched, bruised, pushed through doorways, had my hair pulled and witnessed so many ‘shadow’ incidents, I actually lost count. I’ve been to diverse locations such as Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky and historic War Eagle Mill east of Bentonville, Arkansas. My encounters have been documented by audio and video recordings,

Filming at Hrad Houska – The Gates to Hell

08 July 2023 | Creepy places, Demons, Ghost hunting, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I recently was involved with filming an episode of a forthcoming Discover channel show at Hrad Houska – The Gates to hell – here in the Czech Republic. At one point, we were in the castle and I was talking about the murder of a Swedish Mercenary in the room that we stood in. He was an occultist who was said to be engaged in black magic and satanic rites at the Castle who was murdered by his own men. As I told the story – and I was already feeling the darkening atmosphere – suddenly my voice took on a strange echo and the whole atmosphere changed. It was charged as if with electricity and all the sounds – my voice included – had this strange tinny sound. I

The Creeper in the Woods

08 August 2019 | Creepy places, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 2003, I was in 8th grade, so about 13-years old. My family was fairly poor and my dad had a hard time keeping a stable job so, we moved around a lot in my childhood. We had just moved from Mississippi to North Carolina and found a dated A-frame house nestled quaintly on the side of a mountain with a creek at the bottom of the hill. The house was surprisingly cheap, probably because it was previously a vacation rental that wasn’t getting much business by the looks of it. The house had an odd vibe to say the least. I had explored the woods by my house several times that summer, even becoming lost at one point, but after a couple of hours of following the creek,

I have always been a skeptic, however, I had a really scary experience 5 years ago that I still cannot explain. My friend and I grew up fishing together. When we got older we fished amateur bass tournaments and had a large tackle box that we shared. I was just starting pharmacy school and working as a clinical pharmacy intern nights in a local hospital. There was a tournament in the morning that I had to miss because I had to work late so I promised my friend that I would drop off our box after I got off so he could fish the tournament with someone else. I pulled into his driveway around 12 am and walked to his garage, which is detached and sits in the back of

Cedar Rapids Paranormal Investigator Writes Book About Her Creepy Experiences

08 March 2018 | Creepy places, Your Stories

Katie Hopkins was just 10 years old when she saw her first spirit. The longtime Cedar Rapids area resident was in the home of her neighbor, who had recently died. Hopkins said she and some others were in the basement of the home when she looked and “saw this guy rocking in a rocking chair.” “It was a quick, brief moment,” Hopkins said. “That was the first thing I can really remember being my first paranormal experience.” That encounter would be her first, but far from her last. Now Hopkins, a 30-year-old admissions adviser at Kaplan University, has chronicled her experiences with the paranormal in her recently published book, “‘Seeing’ Spirits: Opening the Empathic Door.” Hopkins said there are lots of books on the paranormal out there and she’s read

Celebrities Who Claim to Have Had Sex with Ghosts

22 February 2018 | Creepy places, Demons, Your Stories

If ghosts aren’t scary enough for you, prepare to learn about ghost sex. Spectrophilia is the fetishization of and sexual attraction to ghosts or supernatural beings. But it’s not only spectrophiles who claim to have had romantic encounters from beyond the grave. Although some fantasize about having a sexy spiritual encounter, most reports by people who claim to have experienced the phenomenon say they didn’t initiate it. According to scientists, the sensation of supernatural sexual pleasure typically occurs when individuals are falling into or out of sleep. Human brains are most vulnerable to hallucinations during those moments, which explains the intense sensations people often report. Some people who suffer from sleep paralysis have also reported sexual encounters with spirits. Since medieval times, there have been records of people who believe to have

Halloween Case #17 – The Highgate Vampire and The Dueling Magicians

20 October 2017 | Bizarre, Creepy places, Haunted locations, Vampires, Your True Encounters

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.   Back in the early 1970’s, the case of the Highgate Vampire was repeatedly in the news. It was a scary and somewhat grisly story and I recall reading in horror and fascination everything the media printed at that time. In retrospect, the subplot of two men interested in the occult and determined to outdo each other is even more interesting. Highgate cemetery was built in the 1830’s and was the place to be buried in society at the time. Many famous people are interred there including Karl Marx. In line with the style of the time, the graves are

Halloween Case #3: The Terror of the South Shields Poltergeist

04 October 2017 | Creepy places, Demons, Your Stories

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 spirit stacked chairs, moved chests of drawers, and slammed doors. But this wasn’t any old ghost—it was malicious and it meant business. One night in bed, Marianne felt her son’s toy dog hit her on the back of

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
