When I was about thirteen years old I had the most terrifying experience of my childhood. Let me tell you about the house first. We moved to this house when I was eight years old. My mom used to be a night owl and she told me that one night after midnight she heard little footsteps that sounded like a child’s. When she got up to see if my sister or I were up she was shocked to find us both asleep in our beds. Growing up I used to feel like I was being watched constantly. The scariest thing happened when I was in bed one night. I used to sleep with my head under the blanket and my feet sticking out letting the heat escape. This particular night

Is This her Dead Son Visiting? Caught on Security System?

16 January 2019 | Evidence?, Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’m always on the lookout for evidence and I have to say that so far, this particular story has my interest. A Mother and Daughter at home last week, watching TV in the bedroom. She checked her phone she saw a notification that there said, “Your entryway camera saw someone.” Attached to the message was an image from the camera that seemed to show a transparent, bearded male figure in what look like pajamas. While that is enough to freak anyone out, what they realized next truly left them shook up – the person in the picture looked exactly like the son and brother of the Mum and daughter, who died two in 2016 at the age of 23.  Here are the Mum’s twitter post and the picture from that

The Man Who Didn’t Want Us There

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

The following account is rather interesting. The home they lived in was already occupied it seems…… Submitted to Weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too, Chris Francis gives us his chilling account…. I was 18 years old and like every young man trying to make it in the world, had moved from my mother’s house outside Orillia Ontario to an apartment in Toronto. I was determined to show I could make it on my own after high school so I got two jobs and worked myself to the bone. Needless to say, I didn’t quite have what it took yet to make it on my own. A year later I sucked up my pride and moved home with my tail between my legs. My mother and sister and newborn baby

The Creepy Sounds in My House

19 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a few encounters to tell you about that have happened at my house. I have been living in my house for 3 years now, which is an old 1940s cottage-style house. The first incident happened within the first 8 months of living in the home. I went for a long walk/run earlier that day through the neighborhood. Nothing strange happened until that night when I woke up in the middle of the night to sounds of a door unlocking. The sound was coming from the kitchen where there is a door to the driveway, the most commonly used door. After hearing a door open and close, I called out for my mother who was the only person in the area who had a key to my house but

The Lady Laughing in my Bedroom: 1951 /1952

17 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is Geof James, I am seventy years of age, and I live in Queensland Australia. The following narrative is sincere and truthful. I have absolutely no reason whatsoever to make the following story up. All I can say is that it happened. When this occurrence happened, I would have been about three-and-a-half years of age, and I have never forgotten it. This would have been in 1951 / 52. My understanding is that this particular house came as a ‘job package’ with my father’s employment. I still can recall some parts of the house and its general interior layout. At this time, my parents and my sister (younger than myself), were living at 36 Canal Street, Derby. I was four years of age when we moved to Willington. I

MUM CAPTURES HORRIFYING PARANORMAL FIGURE ON VIDEO CHAT TO BEST FRIEND

13 December 2018 | Evidence?, Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Haunted locations

This story and video from StoryTrender certainly gave me the creeps. – Here is the first part of the article and you SHOULD watch the video…… it’s wild!   Mum-of-four Lori Simmons was video chatting last Friday [NOVEMBER 30] on an app called Marco Polo, which allows users to record videos to each other in real time.  The 47-year-old from Yakima, Washington, USA, said she had just woken up and was chatting with her best friend Shana Thomas – but was left horrified when Shana asked if there was somebody in the house with her.  Lori –  who claims to have been home alone at the time – said her ‘heart stopped’ after she replayed the chilling footage and witnessed a dark figure dash in and out behind her while

The Woman in the Chair

10 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have always had a vivid imagination as a kid. Often times, I would see and hear things that were unexplainable, but I would just brush it off. However, there were a couple of specific experiences I had as a little girl that I will never quite shake. They had frightened me to my very core-and to this day, at the age of 26, I still have an uneasy feeling in the dark. That dead silent dark when you’re in bed, wide awake and it’s just way too quiet in the house. The only thing you can hear is your heart beating like a drum from your anxiety. You hope and pray you’ll start to fall asleep soon and drift into a blissful dream state. But that uneasy feeling never

The Ellis House

03 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had a great childhood. I guess you could say it was one of those “Leave it to Beaver” childhoods. Nothing particularly crazy ever happened to me as a child that I can remember. Looking back, the early years of my childhood seem to have been coated in pastel colors where the sun was always shining and life was always good. But as picturesque lives often go, sometimes there can be something hiding underneath, something a little off, and maybe a little strange. Such is the case for the first eight years of my life in Coffeyville, Kansas. In 1986, my family and I moved into a two-story house on Ellis Street. It was a beautiful house that sat right on the corner of Ellis and another street which conveniently

A Childhood of Spirits

01 December 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Until the age of 13, I lived with my parents in a two bedroom apartment in Philadelphia. The apartment was actually the second story of a three-story house. Our landlord lived on the 1st floor, my family on the 2nd, and a single mother and her young daughter on the 3rd. I lived in constant fear, at night time at least, due to the many and varied occurrences that shaped my outlook on the paranormal for the rest of my life. When I say may occurrences I mean many, but four stand out to me the most. The first, and the most frightening to me, happened one night while I was in bed. We had a small dog that would lay at the foot of my bed, under the covers

The Laundry Room

30 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

While yes, this isn’t the absolutely most terrifying or horrific story, it is the strangest and scariest thing that has ever happened to me. So, this happened when I was around 10. I’ve always taken the bus home from school, and I had gotten a home key for my 8th birthday. This was because most of the time, neither of my parents was home when by the time I arrived. Today was a day like normal. I got home at 2:45, unlocked the back door with my home key and walked into the house. I have always felt slightly uneasy about being home by myself, mostly because of many late nights listening to creepy YouTube videos, but today I just felt terrified as I stepped into the house. I brushed

Demon Dogs

26 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story took place during the summer of 1981. I was 12 years old. I was camping, with my family, at a place called Canoe River Campground in Mansfield, MA. The location of the campground is right on the edge of the Hockomock Swamp/Bridgewater Triangle. As was the custom on any sunny day, I took my red BMX bike and went looking for something to do. After cruising by the rec room and seeing that it was filled with teenagers, I decided I would explore one of the small brooks that feed into Mill Pond. There was a path that followed the brook part of the way, which I had stopped at last time. This time I decided I wanted to go further up stream and see what was up

Matilda

21 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So, before my grandmother moved closer to where my parents and aunts and uncles live now, she used to live in a big, double house a few hours south of us. The house was huge, which made it a TON of fun for me and my cousins when we were younger and would spend the night. It was the perfect place to play hide and seek, or go on secret spy missions with our walkie talkies. However, the house had sort of an eerie feel to it, especially at night time. You know, that sort of..”man I really don’t want to look around the corner” kind of feel? Like someone..something..is going to be there? Well back when I was younger, before she had her dog, they swore up and down

My Family and Our Ghosts

19 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’m currently 21, and I know that my childhood house is haunted. Since I was little I had always heard strange things, weird noises at night and strange feelings when I was alone. But as I got older, I began to experience more. Both me and my brother slept in the basement. My two sisters and parents slept upstairs. My grandparents on my fathers side had passed before I had gotten the chance to meet them. And recently we lost my grandfather on my mothers’ side. My fathers parents had lived in the house before my parents moved in. The year after I graduated high school, I took a year off to work and figure my life out. This was about 5-years ago. It was a week after all my

The Old Mining Town

12 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Several years ago, I lived in an old mining town in the southwest. The small town had an interesting history, a mining massacre nearby, Bat Masterson and Kit Carson had lived there at one time as well. So it’s expected that there might be a few ghosts here and there…and there were. My husband and I moved to this small town because he took a teaching position. Rentals were hard to find but eventually we lucked out and found a small attic apartment in an old converted house. There were three apartments, two downstairs on the main level and then ours in the attic. It was quaint and cozy, each apartment had its own baseboard heat, no AC but plenty of windows. At first, I didn’t feel anything strange about

The Spectral Monk

09 November 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve always been what some people call energy sensitive. When I was a child I’d see things, but now as a grown up I only feel them. I have many stories, but one that sends a chill down my spine to this day goes as follows. My father was born in Mexico, so when I was very little he decided to go back and live there for a while. The house we lived in was always under this weird heaviness. I always felt it but I was too young to know what it was. I hated it though. One day, my mother had taken my brother with her to run errands. He was only two at the time and very active. I on the other hand had a cast on
