At night my wife and I would hear footsteps running up and down the hallway. At first we thought it was our two children so we paid it no mind. One night our bedroom door opened and closed. I got up out of bed thanking one of our daughters needed something. Well when I got to their bedroom, they were both fast asleep. A few nights later around 10 o’clock, I realized I forgotten to put some tools up outside. I step outside into the pitch black and gather my tools as I’m doing this I hear a little girl say ‘daddy’. I asked my daughter what she was doing outside this time and night and I got no response. I looked around and saw nothing so upon coming inside

Shadow Witch and A Haunted Neighborhood

15 May 2019 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Old hag, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was born and raised in Tucson,Az. The youngest of four children. When I was about 5 years old we moved into the house I would spend most of my childhood. It was a new neighborhood at the time in the early 80”s on the northwest side of town. The house was a simple 3-bedroom ranch style house. It looked pretty much like all the other houses on the block. I was pretty fortunate that there were a few kids my age to play with. I became good friends with the kid next door. Wesley was his name. He was a year younger but he loved G.I. Joe as much as I did. We played G.I. Joe all the time and when we weren’t playing G.I.Joe we were exploring the

Who is that at the Window?

29 April 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I found this story on the web……. scary! “Growing up, my dad’s house held many spooky, unexplainable nights. We would hear loud, heavy footsteps running up the stairs when we were home alone. It also sounded like a person – or thing – was dragging a rake up the walls as it sprinted up the stairs. But there was one room in the house where – sometimes in photographs – it looked like a man was watching us from the windows. The photos below were taken in the same room and six months apart. Each shows a different window in the room.” Submitted by Kara Siler – Amelia, Ohio

The Enniscorthy Poltergeist

22 April 2019 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

While researching Poltergeist for my little book called Poltergeist, I came across a lot of very creepy stories and encounters but I missed this one which honestly, is the best Poltergeist story I have ever read! Apparently, in 1910 in a little Irish town called Enniscorthy. Three lodgers sharing a room experienced hellish activity. It started with the bedclothes being pulled off of one of the men, strange tapping noises, footsteps and the bed moving across the room by itself. Over the course of a week, the activity increased with the bed bing lifted at one point. The Guardian newspaper heard of the activity and sent reporters to cover the incident. What the hardened reporters experienced is probably the best bit of the entire tale – noises, bedclothes being removed,

Beaten by a Ghost?

17 April 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Imagine growing up in a house where the resident ghost beat you up?! Well, thats what two brothers from the city of Hull in England described recently in the local paper. Darren and Chris Buttery were punched, kicked, slapped and pushed down the stairs by a ghost in their childhood home. According to the Hull Daily Mail, Darren described his experiences as follows; “The house was absolutely terrifying – at first it seemed like the ghost was playing with us as it used to bang the doors shut and lock them so we couldn’t get in and then move things around the rooms. Once the living room was turned upside down, and other times it used to move the rocking chair with a clown sat on it from one side

A Stoned Ghost?

12 April 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

An Oregon marijuana shop has been the subject of some media coverage recently as a result of some strange activity there – and not by the patrons! Jars moving by themselves, pencils and pens rearranged and other such activity. And all caught on video tape as well. In case you think this video has been doctored or played with, this is a marijuana shop in the USA – the video is mandated by law and tampering with it is a criminal offense. Take a look for yourself.   The video evidence corroborates months of other weirdness in the store: doors locking people out of offices strange sounds in the storeroom small items being moved around “orbs” of light “flying around like crazy” Five Zero Trees Oregon City occupies the site

Something on the Baby Monitor….

26 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A couple of British newspapers are carrying a story about a scratched baby and a ‘ghost’ on a baby monitor…. The video is certainly creepy….. what do you think? A young couple have claimed they are being driven from their home by a violent ‘schizophrenic’ spirit after footage showed a ‘ghostly male’ figure walking past their daughter’s crib. Mother-of-one Heather Brough, 25, from Michigan, discovered three deep ‘purple scratches’ on her one-year-old baby’s cheek after waking her from a nap. The unexplained injuries on her daughter Lily, prompted Ms Brough and her fiance Josh Higgins, 30, who live at his mother’s guesthouse, to check their baby camera. And when reviewing the footage, they claim to have seen a male figure briskly walking past Lily’s cot before disappearing into thin-air. Apparently,

The Creepy Crawlspace and A Haunted House

21 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was much younger, in my early 20’s, we rented a small older home built in the ’60s. It was rundown…but cheap, and we were able to exchange doing repairs for lower rent. Being young newlyweds with 2 small sons age 2 and 7 months, it was an ideal situation at first. The first few months were fine but then things got crazy quick when I explored the home’s crawlspace one day after hearing some noises coming from down there. It sounded like an animal, so I opened the floor hatch and popped my head down there with a flashlight and looked around. Immediately as my light illuminated the cold damp darkness, I got the chills. Inside the crawl space was an old ratty piece of carpet, and on

A Paranormal Stench?

19 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 2005, in a decent house on a military base in North Carolina, with my then-wife when things started getting weird for me. I had been married for about 2 1/2 years at this point. Things were not at there best between her and I. There were a number of things that happened in this house in the 2 years I was there…. I’ll start at the beginning. Summer 2005: I had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. I was getting ready to leave out again the following month. The day I arrived home from tour #1, my wife and I were talking. She was telling me about something strange that happened a few times while I was gone: About once a week, she would be woken up

Who Peeks from the Closet?

13 March 2019 | Evidence?, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was in my kitchen with one of my kids. While she was eating, I took a picture of her and posted it on Facebook. That’s when people started asking me, “Who is the man in the background?” Her and I were the only two in the home. I looked at the picture again and you can see an older man looking around the corner of the pantry. Our house was built in 1877.   Submitted to WCPO by Stephanie Ater – Fayette County, Ohio

Uninvited…..

08 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened almost twenty-five years ago when I was a young girl. I grew up in a small town in Michigan nicknamed “The Friendly City.” My neighbors were all very close and we frequently visited each others’ houses. One neighbor asked if I would house/cat sit while she went on a 3-day shaman retreat (she is Native American) and I agreed. The first day went well and there were not any issues whatsoever. The second day, I invited my friend over to the house with me while I fed the cats in the afternoon. We decided to hang out in my neighbor’s side media room and watch tv for a few hours while sitting with the cats. She went to the kitchen to get some snacks for us and shut

The Ghost in Our House

07 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It’s been going on for a few months now. My wife and kids would say have you noticed anything weird going on?  I said “No why?” My wife said, “I’ve been seeing things out the corner of my eye and hearing noises coming from the storage room.” Of course, me being me, I said: “It’s just your imagination.” A few days passed and my youngest son came to me and said: “Dad, something scratched me.” So then I thought maybe I need to go check out the storage room. So I did and I found nothing but I thought to make my son feel better I’d say “Hey whoever is here needs to stop bothering my family” I said, “There son, nothing will bother you again.” But for me on

The Eye

04 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Not had many submissions recently (do submit your stories!!), so I went in search of stories on the net and found this one…. certainly I thought it creepy. One time, I was lying in bed and it was about 1 am. I heard someone walking down the hallway right outside my room and then my door started to creak open. I thought it was my stepfather, since he usually messes with me like that, and the door stopped after a couple of inches. Through the crack, I could see an eye staring right back at me. I shouted to him that I could see him and I thought at that point he would give up messing with me. After that, the door slammed shut and there were loud footsteps down

The House

01 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have read many supposedly true horror/mystery stories over the years and many taking place in old abandoned places, so I decided it was time to share mine. Unlike most “true” stories, I can assure with my entire being that everything and every detail is not only completely true, but the events are still discussed often amongst myself and those friends who also witnessed firsthand the following events, they still haunt us today and maybe someone out there has a better explanation of what we exactly witnessed… I grew up in a small town in central New Jersey only a few miles from both the bay to the north and the ocean to the east. What most people forget when they think of New Jersey today, is that it’s actually
