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

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

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

The Ghost on The Sofa

30 October 2018 | G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My ex-Partner and shared an apartment for many years. It always gave me the creeps even after major renovation. So much so that I actually secretly performed cleansing rituals in every room. I hated to be alone there and it seemed cold and gloomy to me. When we split up and I moved out, I wasn’t sorry to leave it. This summer, while on holiday with our daughter on Greece, my ex sent me a text message. In it, she stated that she had been feeling very depressed and gloomy all night. To alleviate the feeling, she had started taking pictures of the apartment as she was hoping to offer my old office as a room to rent to a student. She attached the picture. She hadn’t seen anything until

My Haunted Childhood Home

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

When I was a kid I grew up in what I truly believe was an evil place. Strange noises, weird feelings, and yes, apparitions. I remember it would be beautiful, sunny days, but when you walked into our home, something changed. It was this creepy quiet. Even though you couldn’t see it, you could definitely feel it. The energy there was dark. One night I woke up in the middle of the night to my Mom crying to my Dad. I heard her telling him that she saw an image of my Dad just staring at her. She said the apparition had no legs. It was just from the waist up. My Brother saw an evil apparition of me in his bedroom doorway at least two times. He said it

Strange Manifestation

23 October 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

This experience goes back to when I was about 12-years of age, living back in my hometown of Liverpool, Merseyside. We had moved into a Council House in Fazakerley sometime around 1974. The house was fairly new, and to my knowledge only had only one previous occupant, who had left sometime before we took up occupancy. The house was fairly unkempt when we moved in and it took a few weeks decorating it before it was habitable. I got a eerie feeling from this house the moment I walked into it and never liked the place at all. Anyway we had been living there some time, and I would usually go to sleep at night leaving the hall light on, and keeping my curtains closed in the bedroom, and window,
