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.

Demon on my Chest

12 January 2021 | Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was about 6 am. I had just rolled over to remove my headphones that I had fallen asleep in. Once done, I laid on my back and at this point I’m exhausted and I slept for about an hour. I fell asleep around 5 am.  When I close my eyes and reopen them (or so I thought?) there it was.. standing next to the bed. A hooded figure dressed in all black. I couldn’t see its face and I tried to scream for help but nothing came out. I saw its hands moving every time I tried to scream. Taunting me. It climbed on top of me and my chest felt like the demon was clutching my heart. It sniffed me so close to the face. I tried with

Blast From the Past – The Boy in the Sailor Suit

01 November 2017 | July 2015

The problem with a blog format is juicy and scary stories gradually get pushed to the bottom of the heap and people no longer find them So, periodically, we will refresh some of the better submissions as a blast from the past. Here is a wonderful story about a boy…. About 30 years ago, a friend of a friend’s sister was getting married, and I somehow found myself invited to the stag. I’d never been to the house before, and as we waited for the groom to arrive, the bride’s mother insisted we have a cup of tea.

My brother and my daughter, decided to have a weekend away with me in a village where we stayed in a two-hundred-year-old inn, while there, we saw a notice board with a ghost walk advertised on it, we thought it would be a bit of fun, and agreed to go on it. When we turned up at the allotted time at the meeting place, which was in front of the old disused graveyard, we were surprised that no one else was there, I asked a young girl passing by if she knew anything about it, she told us it was only on a Friday night that the event took place, and this was Saturday evening, disappointed that we had missed it, we decided to go and have a couple of

“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

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

Have You Ever Seen Your Doppelganger?

28 April 2016 | April 2016, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

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
