The Elgin Mental Hospital Cemetery

13 January 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I heard about abandoned Elgin Mental hospital cemetery online and I read stories about hearing old hound dogs and chains from the former grounds keeper. I also heard that there are three bodies to every grave and have seen websites been were forced to remove this information. I’ve even seen websites saying that no cemetery exists. Well, if you have seen my independent film “Whom I Fear”, that is the cemetery. One day my then fiancée, (now wife), and I went driving around to find this cemetery. (A year before I filmed the movie there). We actually had to drive around the Elgin mental hospital and ask about 25 people where it was located. It took forever. Hours went by and 24 of those 25 people said there isn’t one.

Is This A Phantom Flying Straight Towards The Camera?

01 May 2018 | Your Stories

This article comes from the Daily Mail. This is the spooky moment a fitness coach claimed he saw a ghost fly straight at his camera as he explored an 800-year-old graveyard. A smokey white figure appears to launch itself directly at Tony Ferguson’s camera as he investigated the cemetery at St Mary’s Church in Eling, Hampshire. Personal trainer and paranormal investigator Tony claims he decided to scout out the cemetery after reports of a ‘negative presence’ from people visiting their loved ones’ graves. The 33-year-old claims the moment he stepped foot in the graveyard he felt ‘unwanted’ and then suddenly heard a ‘whooshing’ sound which he now believes must have been the ghost whizzing past him. While seeing visual evidence of what he felt and heard was ‘really weird’ for

The Haunting of Hecker Pass / Hwy 152

01 February 2018 | January 2018, Your Stories

Nestled between Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties in California, west of Gilroy and east of Watsonville, is a mountain pass known as Hecker Pass. U.S. Highway 152 runs right through it. And they say that if you drive on that stretch of road late at night, you would do well not to stop on your way through, because there is a paranormal apparition there who just might decide that your soul looks like a tasty midnight snack. Local legends, which date all the way back to the mid-1800s, state that there is a woman in a “white frilly dress” who haunts the area, and who sometimes attacks those who pass by in the middle of the night. Unlike many haunted locations, however, this one does not appear to have a backstory (or if it does, no

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

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 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’

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.

Have You Ever Seen Your Doppelganger?

I couldn’t sleep one night, and it was fairly late. So I decided to go and sit outside on the porch. No one was outside, until she saw a young girl walking down the street. I thought it was unusual for a girl to be out so late—but I decided she must have been returning home from her boyfriend’s house, or from a party. I couldn’t really make the figure out until she came in front of the house. The girl seemed to be staring into nothing. But when she reached the end of our driveway, she stopped and stared directly at me. It was then and there that I could make out her appearance. She looked exactly like me. With my hair, eyes, skin, body, everything was exactly the

Don’t Go Into That Old Warehouse… We Did… And We Shouldn’t Have

03 March 2016 | February 2016

After hearing that there was an old warehouse outside of town, six of my friends and I decided to go out there and see what we could find. We all had an interest in the paranormal, and this was a good opportunity to see something. We arrived at the site and went through the first three buildings really just having a good time. We entered the fourth building and the walls were covered in graffiti, quite strange graffiti really. After being in there for a while, pieces of concrete started to fall, or so we thought. We later realized that it was rocks that were hitting the wall before the ground, which lead us to the conclusion that they were being thrown. It was at this point that we got
