Sheldwich Kent – Ghosts, Ghouls and Pagan God’s: Part One

13 March 2017 | Creepy places, March 2017, Your Stories

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

28 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, October 2016

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. This dark, and grisly place, from 1882 to 1971, transformed coal and ore from surrounding acres into the hard steel that would pave the way for industy. 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’

The Dark Presence: A True Paranormal Account of A Suburban Haunting

29 July 2016 | Creepy places, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The first day I moved into my new house was amazing. I had been living with my parents, and I had never felt better that I did to move into my own place. After the house movers had left I had some washing up to do. While doing that chore I heard footsteps from the hallway. These steps went halfway up the stairs and stopped. I could feel the hair on the back of my neck stand to attention. I felt this sudden feeling of dread and it was really uncomfortable. I checked all four bedrooms and found nothing. The house was silent, but I still had this feeling of dread. I carried on with the washing up trying to forget about it and about half hour later. I mean,

Could Your School Be Haunted? An Experience of the Paranormal From A Teacher

27 July 2016 | Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

Ever since I qualified as a teacher I have been had some very interesting paranormal experiences inside school buildings. One building was reputed to be haunted by quite a few ghosts and there were a lot of cold spots—especially in the gym where a murder was said to have taken place. However, the story I am submitting today is rather strange. In this particular school, we usually had twenty to thirty students per class. My classroom that day was quite spacious for us and on my left were the door and narrow window. I had a few jokers in this class that day that kept on annoying each other, so while I was writing on the board, I was keeping an eye on their reflections, too. At first, I was

26 July 2016 | Creepy places, Your Stories

A few years ago I was at a friend’s house with a few other buddies, at around 4am in the morning we decided to go to bed and get some sleep. I was in the Brewster Projects in Detroit, don’t know if it has to do with anything but the building is probably around 70, or 80 years old. Anyway we’re all in the same room trying to get some sleep, everything seemed fine. The Brewster Projects were considered to be one of the more dangerous places in Detroit—but nothing ever happened to me when I was there visiting friends. As I drifting off, I felt something tapping me. I ignored it, I just thought it was one of my friends trying to bother me. Awake and getting pissed off

The Gates To Hell?

29 March 2016 | Creepy places, March 2016

Out in the middle of nowhere about 60km north of Prague sits a strange castle. No one is sure when it was first built nor why. It was not on any trade route, it wasn’t near water, it wasn’t defending anything except a remote hillside far off the beaten track. Even more mysteriously, the castle is often omitted from maps of the region and its origins – unlike most castles in the Czech Republic – are not well known. Originally, it seems, travelers passing through the region were subjected to visitations of demons and strange creatures in the vicinity. Back in the 900’s, one can well imagine how remote this location would have been and how frightening the dark forest would have been. Strange creatures such as the left-handed female
