Can You Help Him?

03 July 2020 | G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Off topic I know but…. My boys live in Texas. Two of them lost their jobs as a result of this COVID thing. Neither received any iota of help from the Government there – no unemployment, no check for COVID relief, NOTHING. Too poor to afford computers, their access to the internet is limited. Too poor to pay hefty phone bills, their ability to stay on the line 3-4 hours waiting for a Government employee to actually answer the damned phone to help them is too expensive. One of my boys, Liam, lives alone in Houston in a small one room apartment. His previous job paid more or less minimum wage and was a 2-hour bus ride away. He was let go. The only person he could turn to for

The Tragedy of Fairytale

03 July 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Pohádka means fairytale in Czech, but it is also the name of a reputedly haunted and cursed location in the Czech Republic. It all began May 1828, when in a nearby village called Strážov, a fire broke out. One house caught fire and a storm blew the hot embers across the roofs of neighboring houses. In the end, 78 houses including the town hall, were destroyed. The villagers wanted to know why why such a horrible event would take place in such an idyllic place and soon they had an answer. Near Pohádka by edge of the forest, was a small hut occupied by a strange old woman. There was talk of her being a witch. This poor old woman was determined to be the culprit and to be the

Sherman’s Blue Coats

01 July 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I write this experience as a way to possibly relieve long standing stress and fright that I have had to deal with personally since it occurred to me. I would hope that you will be able to respect what happened to me and take it for what its worth. Just know this experience still haunts me to this day, and I have only ever told one other person about this. They believed me, but due to my occupation, urged me to never speak of it in any serious fashion to anyone else. I suppose I am getting a little ahead of myself so I will start from the beginning. For sake of me telling this you can refer to me as “Jack”. I live in a predominantly rural county in

Walked Through A Ghost

24 June 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in the 1980s when I was married, my ex wife and I were very psychic and into the occult. One evening when she was laying in bed and I was walking toward her, I got this chill going through my entire body, at the same time my ex wife’s eyes widened, I looked at her and asked, “what did I just do “? She answered, “You just walked through my grandfather. ” Also ended up living in a verifiable haunted house after the divorce, but that’s a different story I still own the house, and my son and his family live in it. They have seen things in the past that have been verified by the original builders and owners of the house.   Submitted by James Torkelsen to

She is known for her fair share of ghost stories about the old morgue in north west england (not being specific for privacy reasons), which has now been torn down with the rest of the hospital and has a housing estate on it. Her most freaky one has to be when they dropped an expired patient at the morgue. This happened back in the 90s, when the hospital was still used.

The ambulance bay was a concrete garage, with one tiny dim light inside and was directly

Ghostly Footprints Outside My Office

19 June 2020 | Your True Encounters

Introducing my latest podcast guest – Thomas Bauerle…. I currently teach at a university in Nagoya, Japan. I have an office on the sixth floor, which is comfortable and useful for meeting students and colleagues. I use when doing research, class planning, and writing. I feel at home there with all of my books stacked on the shelves and my favorite photos on the wall. It has an atmosphere of being “my sacred space”, which I appreciate very much. Seminar rooms and the offices of other professors take up the rest of the sixth floor. I was in residence at this university for two years with nothing unusual happening to me, although one teacher from Jamaica whose office was down the hall reported that she had been obliged to chase

The Cursed Tree

16 June 2020 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Michael, and I am a PhD student in University of Szeged, Hungary. When I was about 8 years old in 1994, my entire family visited my parents’ village for Christmas festivities. The village is a small village called Ososo, in Akoko Edo local government area of Edo State Nigeria. My parents and I were leaving in the northern part of Nigeria in Kaltungo local government area of Gombe State. During that Christmas of 1994, my elder brother Andrew (God rest his soul) and I, went to our uncle’s farm to enjoy the fruits in the farm. One thing you should know about my village is the fact that people use all sorts of magical amulets and talisman to protect their properties from thieves and intruders. Water wells,

Strange Noises Upstairs..

15 June 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This just happened earlier this week, and I can’t stop thinking about it.  I work the overnight shifts in a group home for youth with special needs. Nights are typically pretty quiet, aside from the odd snore or kid quietly singing to himself. I’ve worked in this particular house for just a couple of months now, and have noticed the sound of light footsteps often coming from upstairs if I am downstairs. When I go up to check on the residents, they are all asleep. The house can’t be more than 30 years old if I had to guess, but I’m sure all houses both old and new make noises. No big deal. The other night while I was using the washroom on the main floor, I was suddenly startled

My Wife’s Grandpa was a Warlock

09 June 2020 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story involves my mother-in-law and her father-in-law whom is my wife’s grandpa. This story was shared to me by my wife’s parents whom are people that would not joke around about paranormal situations nor make up stories of any kind. The story came up as a result of BBQ conversations which led to personal paranormal experiences. My mother in-law shared her story when she was pregnant with my wife. At the time, she lived in the 60’s in Sinaloa, Mexico at the family farm of her husband. My father-in-law worked as a truck driver and was away on the road working. The farm was quite humble and did not have much  to it. In fact, the room where she was staying at did not have a door, it only

Phone Call from my Dead Dad

05 June 2020 | Phone Calls from the dead, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I keep an eye on Reddit for good stories and so on. This one caught my eye largely because it was the subject of a book I wrote a few years ago. The book was called Ghosts in the Machines and it covered the telephone call from a dead relative type experience….. This story is a super example of exactly that type of experience….   Hey everyone, this story happened quite a while ago and I thought it would be worth sharing on this board as it is one of the creepiest things I have ever experienced. To start I have to give a brief background. My Dad passed away in 2016 when I was 14. Okay, my dad had this Samsung phone and it was super cool to me

A Sobbing Ghost

04 June 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

Langley Castle in Northumberland, England, is now a hotel as well as a fortified medieval castle. Those who know me will know I have a soft spot for haunted hotels and have even put out a book filled with reviews of haunted hotels. Langley Castle is also reputed to have been the inspiration for JK Rowling’s  Moaning Myrtle and Grey Lady, which both haunt Hogwart’s.  That is because it hosts the ghost of the Gray Lady who is regularly seen sobbing uncontrollably as she glides through the corridors towards a high window. She looks back with a tear-stained face, and then jumps and disappears… No one really is quite sure who the ghost is as the obvious candidates can all be ruled out. Reputed to be Maud de Lucy, who

The Walls Run With Blood

29 May 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I lived in a small town called Wauseon in the state of Ohio. Growing up in the early 1990s, you can best describe my little neighborhood to that of the Sandlot movie. Almost all my neighbors had kids around my age. They would all come over to my house after school and during summer break. I had the biggest yard, and we would play baseball, football, play on the tire swing my dad put up for us etc. My house was also one of the oldest houses, a little north of 90 years old. It was huge – from the basement to our attic it was 5 floors. The basement and second attic were super creepy and I never went to either alone. However, this story is not about my

The Ghost Girl

25 May 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My family moved into an old, run down house when I was about ten. The stairs led straight into my bedroom, which had a little hall that directly connected to my sister’s bedroom. The whole second floor was basically an attic. My parents had spent about a year or so renovating various parts of the house, and I was always involved in the process (painting, mostly). I never felt particularly spooked in the house, until one night when it was time to go to bed. The light switch was at the bottom of the stairs, and for some reason I didn’t want to turn the corner and look into the darkness to turn on the light. It was odd for me, thinking back now. The dark never scared me. But
