My Haunted In- Laws Place

22 March 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have had several unusual experiences throughout my life. I like to say unusual instead of paranormal, because of the skeptic in me. However, the most recent one occurred 2-years ago. At this time, my then fiancé, now husband, and I had moved in with my in-laws in order to save for our wedding and college. I had two experiences at this house. My first experience occurred when I was home by myself. I had just gotten out of the shower and across our narrow hallway to our bedroom. I dropped the towel to get dressed. I then heard a door handle jiggle somewhere inside the house. I instinctively picked up the towel to save everyone any embarrassment. I called out “hello” to see who had come home, but no

I Wish it Would STOP!

05 March 2018 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This has been going on a long time and I’ve been trying to find help but no one believes me. I need to preface this by saying i’m a writer so just cause it might not look written by a scared teenager that’s why. But also i’m not a very good writer so if it doesn’t seem ‘professional’, that’s why. Anyway my house has been the home of a spirit of some sort for as long as I can remember. Now I know what you’re thinking, and no this isn’t the normal “I noticed a ghost in my house but that’s it” kind of thing, this is a “Whatever is in here hates me” kind of thing. I’m not sure how to start this all so I guess I’ll state

Struggles with Sleep Paralysis….

02 March 2018 | Black Eyed Kids, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Not sure where to begin on this, but I’m writing tonight because I came across a story while reading about shadow people. I now know what I saw one night back in 2010. But my story is strange. I read where the BEK wanted in but my encounter, he was already in. Now let me back track a little since I was a kid I seen ghosts and heard noises. That being said, I’m not and never have been a believer in ghosts even though my friends and I have seen things, I tend to believe it’s a mind trick or maybe something else. I grew up with and still have what is called sleep paralysis. I have seen many things during those moments – a gorilla clawing at my

My First Spooky Experience

05 February 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was almost four, my mom invited my aunt and cousin over to our house. I was excited to see my cousin as I would have someone to play with. I didn’t hear them arrive but mom called out to let me know my cousin was there. I left my bedroom at the end of the hallway and ran into the living room to see my mom, aunt, cousin, and several other people. She and I quickly decided to go to my room and on the way, she asked me who everyone else there was. I told her I didn’t know. Eventually, we’re bored so we go back to our moms and I think it’s weird that our moms are watching TV with all of these people around. I

The Rocking Chair

25 January 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So this isn’t very long, but I was at my mum’s friends house and was staying the night and before I went to bed I was sitting on this big, super heavy rocking chair. At about 3.30 am, I woke up to a huge thump and went to investigate and the rocking chair that was in the living room the night before was in the 2nd spare bedroom and then I felt something brush past me so I turned around and standing there was a young boy. He waved at me and then vanished. Submitted by Samantha Bradley

The Whistling Ghost of Calke Abbey

06 January 2018 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations

Calke Abbey is a run down stately home that is now owned by the National Trust in the UK. It is kept in the state that it was in when handed over to the NT and so visitors are treated to a glimpse of its former glories. It’s peeling walls and overgrown gardens paint a picture of the decadence of a former period and the harsh realities of changing family fortunes. The stately home was built on the site of a former religious house – Calke Priory – but it lasted only a few years and was eventually dissolved by Henry VIII. The estate was eventually purchased by Henry Harpur in 1622 for £5,350 and it stayed in the Harpur family until the National Trust began caring for it in

Caught On Camera?

20 December 2017 | Evidence?, Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

Stephen Lee set up a camera to watch his dogs and might just have captured something altogether different. Take a look and let us know what you think? Of course, the video has been picked up by several mainstream media outlets as well in recent days. Apparently, the room overlooks a back garden and so there are no car lights or anything to cause these anomalies and, just to make things creepier, his home was once used as a hospital!

Is Someone There?

19 December 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sometimes it is not what you can see but what you cannot see that makes a huge impact. When I was young my family moved around a lot. Every few years we would pack up and move to another house, always in the hope that the next move would be the last and that we could set roots one day. Living in South Africa, we also had a lot of dogs for protection, these poor animals would also need to pick up roots every few years and follow us around, not that they seemed to mind all that much. On this particular occasion we had moved to a new home that was close to my school. Usually, in order for us to make the move a little easier we would

Spirit Activity Bothers Guests at The Green Lobster Hotel in Prague

18 December 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In searching for other ghost stories during my research for a book on the paranormal in the Czech Republic, I came across a rather remarkable review of a Prague hotel in Trip advisor. The Residence Green Lobster is a luxury four-star hotel in Prague 1. It got the following 5-star review on TripAdvisor.com in 2011. My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Green lobster hotel and we had the first suite on the first floor. The suite was amazing and more than comfortable, we have to say by far the best hotel we have stayed at in our trips to Prague. However we did believe there was a little bit of spiritual activity in the suite to keep us both entertained. Both my wife and I struggle to believe

Tormented by A Spirit in Hell

15 November 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A friend of mine and his wife bought a house in the south side of town about a decade ago and invited my wife and I to the housewarming party. My wife and I showed up and brought an ice cream cake and a stack of new dishes for their housewarming gift because during the move, many of his dishes got broken. When we arrived, we put the dishes and the cake on the kitchen counter and the four of us went into the living room to watch a movie. The movie was a post-apocalyptic story and was really bleak and about 10 minutes in we heard a crash coming from the kitchen. We all jumped, then ran into the kitchen and looked in, but we didn’t turn on the

Halloween Case #27 – The Female Presence that Haunted the Green House

30 October 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This October we are going to bring you some of the most interesting #true paranormal cases we can find. You can discover more true, terrifying accounts of the paranormal right here. When I first moved into the old house eight years ago, I was single and happy to score such a roomy place for such cheap rent. The owners were a lovely Japanese couple I had known for a long time. They were getting old and wanted to move to a newer, more convenient apartment that they could more easily manage. Since they knew me, they offered their big two-story house for relatively cheap rent, no traditional “key money” payment, and no need of a damage deposit. They trusted that I would take pretty good care of the place.   And

Halloween Case #5: The ‘Shadow Woman’ Who Haunts My Bedroom

06 October 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted items, Haunted locations, Your Stories

This October we are going to bring you some of the most interesting #true paranormal cases we can find. You can discover more true, terrifying accounts of the paranormal right here.   My phone was ringing. Normally, I would open my eyes before answering the phone then try to go back to sleep, but this time I opened my eyes and was immediately startled as there was a shadow of a female figure with long black hair parted down the middle and what seemed like a long flowing gown or robe. I could not see her face, it was shadowed, but I knew it was a woman. I just knew. Because I’ve experienced encounters like this in the past, I’ve learned to confront and rebuke these spirits by calling out the name of

Halloween Case #2: Can A Ghost Move Into Your House?

03 October 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted items, Haunted locations, Your Stories

  This October we are going to bring you some of the most interesting #true paranormal cases we can find. You can discover more true, terrifying accounts of the paranormal right here. I live in a newly built house. To my knowledge there have been no deaths on this plot of land. There have been no graveyards in this area. My phone has been randomly turning off a lot lately. I’ll turn it on for a few minutes, and then it just turns off-the batteries fully charged and everything. I don’t know what’s wrong. Same with my laptop, only it won’t turn on until you’ve tried it at least five times. I also feel an unknown presence everywhere in my house, but it’s the strongest in my room. I have absolutely

A Ghostly Maintenance Man

29 September 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened all in the first month or two when I first moved into my apartment back in November and December of 2012. There were three occasions where I’m pretty sure I had a strange experience. When the first experienced happened, I was in bed and it must’ve been early, around eight o’clock A.M. I was woken up by the sound of someone pacing back and forth from my front door all the way to the middle of my hallway, which happens to be just across from my bedroom, and I could hear a faint male voice mumbling. I couldn’t quite make out what the voice was saying for some reason, but I I remember it sounded as though they were wearing wind pants and pacing quickly, three times. I

The Knocking, Slamming Mist That Haunts My House

18 July 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Last year we moved to Connecticut into a fairly new house. Nobody mentioned anything about any previous history attached to the house. We were both looking forward to living in the area and thought we had find a good place to raise our family. For the first few weeks nothing happened. We redecorated the house, made some repairs and we were finally settling in. Then doors started to slam. Sometimes upstairs, sometimes downstairs. Sometimes just the basement door. Sometimes multiple doors would slam at the same time. My husband thought it must have been a breeze of some kind but couldn’t locate it. Still this didn’t bother me too much. It was just one of those strange things. Then the tapping sounded. We would get five or six seconds of
