They are Real!

19 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

What I’m about to tell you occurred when I was just five years old; I’m 53 now, but this event sticks in my head like it just happened yesterday. All I can say is, shadow people are real. My mother and I had flown from the U.S to England to visit family; this was my first time meeting my Aunt and her husband and we would staying at their house for about two weeks. Aunt Lily and Uncle Vic had never had children, but when I arrived, they had a fully loaded toy chest waiting for me with all sorts of goodies. The two items I immediately clocked on to were a metal Bat-mobile and a Batman flashlight that would supposedly shine the “bat-signal” on to a wall by way

GrandMother Came Back….

16 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My grandmother was very sick for a long time. I remember her talking about how she was ready to die, not in a depressed way, just in a way that she had come to terms with her illness and was tired of being miserable. She used to tell me she would come back and haunt me if I wasn’t nice to her. I remember joking with her about this on multiple occasions. She really had made peace with this life. In 2008 she started to get worse, her last hospital visit, in March, we thought we were going to lose her. She talked about the man in the corner that wore a black trench coat and hat. She isn’t the only person I have heard talk about this man when

A Creepy Night at Rydges Hotel, Hobart

11 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had never believed in or experienced the paranormal until I spent a night at the Rydges Hotel in Hobart. This was 15 years ago and I still get goose bumps when I think about it. As a seasoned business traveller, I’ve slept in over 1000 hotel/motel rooms in over 20 countries over the last 20 years. Never had a problem getting to sleep, even in a noisy room. I arrived around 5pm, checked in as normal. Only thing I noticed was the hotel was empty and lacking patrons. And the building had a drab exterior that resembled a 1950’s primary school. The interior had the look and feeling of an old hospital. I dined out as this was my first time in Hobart. I returned around 10pm, had a

Thanksgiving Explosion

02 December 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had the creepiest Thanksgiving happen when I was a young teenager in the 90’s. You first have to know some facts for this story to make sense so let me explain. Fact one: My mom had a balloon business at the time. That means there were strings of fishing line hanging through our living room. Fact two: I was in love with Keanu Reeves after Speed came out. My prize possession was a giant poster given to me a few years earlier. It was huge and would fall down all the time. The edges were covered in tape from being hung over and over again. Fact three: My mom had been a single parent for years until she remarried. She worked a lot which means we kids were generally

The Boy’s Home Hauntings

28 November 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Eight years ago I moved out of my parents house with a boyfriend twenty five minutes north into a house that used to be a boys home. I didn’t know about that while I lived there. The house was at least 150 years old but it had beautiful chandeliers through out the entire house. The basement like all basements was extremely scary to be in and had a weird side room that was dug outside of the basement foundation wall and into the ground like a cave. I believe it was a storage room but there was no lights in it and it had a creepy plywood door that creaked when you opened it and didn’t sit straight when shut. I hated going in the basement. I had to though

22 November 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In the early 2000s, a friend of mine moved to into an old house with some other college friends in Milwaukee. There were not enough bedrooms in the house, so he turned the attic into a huge bedroom and art studio. It was a great room to play guitar, write poems on the wall and paint the windows. Just an over all room to express ourselves in a fun and creative way. Shortly after our discovery of the freedom in this house we realized something was off. A lot of friends that came over would be hit with an unexplainable depression. The feeling weighed you down like you had a pack filled with sand bags in your mind. After the sudden change in moods, we also started hearing things; creaks,

Penrallt Hotel in Aberporth – Another Haunted Hotel

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

A newly renovated hotel in Wales has had many reports of ghostly incidents from former staff and guests “including ghostly shadows flitting across the hall, doors slamming, wardrobe doors flying open in the middle of the night and ‘a presence’ in one of the rooms,” according a recent newspaper article. Like many Hotels, it has some permanent guests apparently. A team of investigators experienced a lot of activity including hearing water running with no obvious source, recorded ‘movement’ in the dining room, and even observed ‘a man stood by furniture’ in one of the bedrooms. “We captured many sounds on the many recordings we obtained – an area of interest was the side bar where two sounds were captured on two separate voice recorders,” they said according to Cambrian News.

He Sees Dead People!

05 November 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My husband often sees people in our bedroom. He wakes up and sees people standing by the bed, walking through the bedroom, standing over him or me and sometimes sitting on the bed or peeling from behind the curtains. It has happened so much and for so long it doesn’t scare him anymore. It is always different people. They just watch him and won’t try to communicate. They aren’t people he has known. We think he sees dead people. Submitted to weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too by Brenda Victor

The Creature in the Woods

29 October 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

I was 6 when this happened so I don’t remember this that much… but here goes. This is what I do remember of that day. It was a dark night and a  full moon, and I was playing with some of my cousins. It was very boring and dumb to us that we had to sleep so… we stayed up. I told my cousins about many things that were very weird to me but I don’t remember the whole thing. All I do remember, is that I think that I told them about how I woke up one night and saw a figure out my hallway (with the kitchen on the right and the bathroom light on cracked for me in the hallway when I slept). I woke up for

House on the Hill

28 October 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 1986 I was visiting my mother, my older sister and my new step father in Cicero, Indiana it was in the country with nothing but corn fields for miles with one small town that contained a gas station, Dairy Queen, small grocery store and video store. I lived in San Antonio, Texas with my father, so this being out in the country like this was new to me. This would be the first and only time I visited at that home. The home in Cicero was big and on a lot of acres, there was a lot of room to roam, we had horses, and a man made pond. One morning I remember being in the kitchen and my sister and I over heard my mother and step father

Lilly the 13th sign

12 September 2019 | Alien Abduction, Haunted houses, Time warp, UFOs, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have always had a deep inner knowing. As a child I could always guess people’s names and know things. I have messages in my dreams and they have come true. I was always drawn to witches and the supernatural. As I grew up, I decided to go to a psychic to find out what all of this meant. I always felt different and from a different time or place. When I went to the psychic she told me I was a witch in a past life and I was hung and that is why I don’t like wearing anything around my neck. I froze for a moment because this is true. I never did like anything to right on my neck and never turtle necks etc. She went on

The Christmas Visitor

09 September 2019 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When our kids were younger, my mother in law lived in a small apartment built onto to our house. We were her main caregivers and she was a big part of our life. Sadly she passed away unexpectedly after about 10 years, right before Christmas. She loved the holidays and was an amazing baker so I knew our kids, especially my daughter, would miss helping her make Christmas cookies that year. One night about a week after the funeral, I was having trouble sleeping and decided to work on packing up her place. I got caught up in my task of cleaning out the closet and the next thing I knew it was ‪3:00am. My sister in law had already made a lot of progress on the bedroom that day

My little hometown is weirder than I thought

05 September 2019 | Demons, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve only started telling this story recently. My small-ish hometown of Spanish Fork, Utah has more strange things happen per capita than I realized. When I was a kid, I moved into the basement of the house my grandpa built, and thought life was perfect. I was the only one down there. There was a really cold, creepy spot at the base of the stairs, but I didn’t think much of it at first. As time went on, it got worse. A lot worse. To the point that I was almost 19, and had to turn off the lights in a specific order so as to not be left in the dark while in the line of sight of that spot. The place had grown. It wasn’t just a place

Why I don’t watch Ghost Stories on the Internet Anymore

22 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve been debating on whether I should share this story or not, but I feel that what I experienced it important to share for anyone who has some interest in the paranormal. First off, let me give you some info. I’m 32 years old, happily married and the owner of three cats. I’m also a believer in God and Jesus and attend my church regularly. I know what you’re thinking, “ugh, another one of these people. why is he shoving his belief down our throats?” before you skip this part, I just ask that you listen, this part is important for later. For most of my life I had a huge interest in the paranormal. While in college, I took many ghost walks and even participated in a few ghost

What Got Me Interested in the Paranormal

16 August 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was young my family had moved to West Virginia. My parents had just bought a house and we moved in the Summer of 1989. Things were pretty normal from the start. I met my neighbor who would become my best friend, and I was just your normal kid. At the time we had an Atari, so I played that like crazy, you know once a gamer always a gamer. But, I am getting off topic. My parents had setup my room diagonally from their room. My mother wanted to be able to look across the hallway into my room to make sure I didn’t roll out of my bed. This is where things start getting interesting… One night I was asleep and my mother felt the urge to
