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

Conflict Radio – Black eyed Kids

14 August 2020 | Black Eyed Kids, Demons, G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Last night, I was a guest on Conflict Radio for an episode about Black Eyed Kids. In part two of the show, we talked with a man who has experienced the BEK. Not once but twice. His story was very disturbing and the podcast is well worth a listen if you have an hour of time. Not to spoil your enjoyment but the man first encountered the BEK in Manchester, England, when they tried to get a ride years ago. Having moved to Finland, he recently encountered them again on his doorstep. He said they were the same kids two decades later and one of them pointed to his van and told him it was a better vehicle than he had in Manchester! Listen here. You may also enjoy this…

Bizarre Paranormal Encounters in the War in Afghanistan

13 June 2018 | Your Stories

Today we are going to take a break from our usual true, paranormal tales to bring you something creepy… and new from www.mysteriousuniverse.org.  “There can be no doubt that terrifying things can happen in times of war. However, in most cases it can at least be counted on that the enemy one faces is a living human being. What happens when other, more supernatural forces creep into war zones? What are soldiers to do when faced with mysterious phantoms, ghosts, apparitions and entities against which they have no experience and which they have not been trained to fight? War zones have attracted tales of hauntings and supernatural phenomena since time unremembered, and certainly one of the more modern such places of paranormal terror is the desolate battlefields of the war

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

The Haunting Little Boy From Nebraska

16 February 2018 | Your Stories

Back when I was supporting myself through college I worked in a fast food restaurant in Omaha. I was walking back to the kitchen after cleaning a table on a regular day. I saw a little boy standing outside of the door. He just looked like a normal little kid, so I smiled and walked on and didn’t think anything of it. He didn’t have anyone with him that I could see so I asked him if he was lost. He just looked at me and smiled. I walked over, reached out and my hand went through him. Like my hand went straight through him. I was completely shocked. He then turned, and I watched him as he ran out and disappeared into the parking lot. I asked another member

The Haunted Tunnel In Boston That’s Not For The Faint Of Heart

08 February 2018 | January 2018, Your Stories

Many people ride the T every day. Usually, they’re concerned about out-of-service trains or running late. If you take the Green Line, you can add complaints about it stopping every few inches. However, it’s a safe bet that you don’t spend your commute stressing about ghosts! But maybe that’s not such a wild thing to worry about. Maybe you should worry about the remains of British soldiers who died during the Revolutionary War. Over time, the bones had become mixed together, making it unclear exactly how many people were originally buried in this mass grave. After several months of excavation, between 900 and 1,100 bodies were removed. The bones were reinterred at Central Burying Ground on the Common. You’ve probably seen the marker for the mass grave, even if you

03 February 2018 | February 2018, Your Stories

Some of the creepiest places in the world are ones that were originally meant to help people; hospitals and asylums are magnets for paranormal activity, possibly because of the trauma and suffering that have occurred within their walls. So many instances of supernatural phenomena have taken place at these locations that ghosts caught on camera are a fairly regular occurrence. Many people online purport to have captured real pictures of ghosts in abandoned hospitals and asylums, and some even claim that modern hospitals could be home to sneaky spirits.

The Cursed Chair of Thomas Busby

19 January 2018 | January 2018, Your Stories

Can a chair be cursed? If you visit the small jewel of a museum in Thirsk you will see the rather strange sight of an oak chair hung from the ceiling in one of the display areas. The chair was suspended at the explicit request of its owner to prevent anyone from ever sitting on it including maintenance and cleaner. The museum has never broken its promise in over 30 years despite numerous requests and even the threat of legal action. Local legend has it that the chair belonged to Thomas Busby, a thug, thief and drunkard who lived in North Yorkshire in the latter part of the 1600s. Busby married Elizabeth, the daughter of a small time petty crock, Daniel Awety who lived near the village of Kirby Wiske. Awety had

Blast from the Past – Meet My Guide

10 November 2017 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

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 my father’s childhood…. My father was a very good man and a great father. He was always so understanding of the strange events that happened to me and us while I was growing up and even into adult life. The reason for this was that he, too, experienced strange things and had done so since he was a boy. In fact, his mother was a medium, and my dad plainly had inherited some of the gift (?) and carried like an unwanted

The Most Haunted Hotel in the USA?

14 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

Staying at the Chicago Congress Plaza Hotel and Convention Center doesn’t sound like a great idea based on some of the reviews I read. We walked into the lobby of this hotel and thought how beautiful it looked. We were very excited. However, the were very few people working the desk and check-in took a long time. Finally after getting our key we went up to our room. Since the lobby looked fantastic, we thought our room would be too. However, as we unlocked the door to our room we were very disappointed. The room was very dimly lit with one lightbulb in the middle of a very high ceiling. The wallpaper was coming off the walls, and the curtains were falling off their rods. The carpet in the room
