Ouija Nightmare

08 April 2020 | Haunted houses, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

With an absence of stories at the moment, I have been trawling Reddit looking for some good ones to post here. And I found this…. I think its very creepy and reminds me of why I do not like Ouija boards…. Back in 2013, my friends and I were bored one night and decided to make an ouija board. Always a good idea, right? Well my best friend lives way out in the country about a 45 minute drive from the closest store, so there wasn’t much to do. We had spent the day hanging out watching movies, which we eventually got bored of. It was me, my best friend A, her boyfriend M, and his best friend B. I forget who’s idea it was to make the ouija board,

The Alarm Clock

07 April 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Strange things happened in the old Victorian era house I grew up in. There was an often cold spot about a third of the way up the stairs. Strange noises could be heard from time to time. Lights and shadows could play tricks on you. Things would move; not float, but often an item would not be found where it was set down just moments before. Other things, too, but I won’t go into everything. When I was a teen there was this one time when I was home alone. I heard the alarm clock in my parents’ bedroom go off in the middle of the day, which was odd. I got up off the couch and began ascending the stairs. About half way up, the alarm stopped. I thought

The Haunted Students Union

09 March 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was in college, I had got a job working as an administrator of the Student Union at my school. Being that I am an administrator I would have to close the building. This building is on a campus of the oldest school in the state. It was used to draft soldiers for the Union army back in the Civil War. There were stories about people seeing ghostly figures walking up and down the hallway of the rooms on the top floor of the building. And, some other eerie things that would occur. It came down to the point that my boss would use the budget for our division to replace all of the locks. One day I was in the office on my laptop when a man and

Calling a Ghost

04 March 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

As a child, I lived in an historical neighborhood that was built in the early 1900s for employees working for a nitrogen company about 15-20 miles away. Nothing particularly scary or ominous about the house, never had strange experiences except for one night. We were in the process of painting my room, so my bed was in the middle and no other furniture save my nightstand. It’s the middle of summer, I live in southern Arizona and it’s very hot and most homes have swamp coolers (evaporative cooling), so I only have a sheet for covering. I’m lying on my back, arms outside of the sheet by my sides. I suffer from insomnia, so I was still wide awake and suddenly feel a warmth grow by my shoulder. I can

My Drunken Ghost

28 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened in the late 80s. I was sharing an old house in CT with a couple of friends. The House was 2 floors with a walk-in, unfinished attic and full basement. There were 3 separate incidents, all occurring when I was home alone with my roommate’s German Shepard. The first time I experienced something unusual was one evening when I decided to go up to the attic to look for something I had packed away. To get to the attic, I had to go through an unused bedroom where there was a doorway and a set of stairs going up to the attic. The attic was lit by a single bulb with a switch at the bottom of the stairs. My buddy’s Shepard followed me upstairs, but he stopped

Someone was Watching Me….

06 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I am 14 and when I was 11, my mom had just got a new job, so we moved to a new house. The house was not the best but had the room for my mom, two sisters, brother in law, step mom, and me. Shortly after we moved in, I was having trouble sleeping at night. It was like someone was always watching me. It was middle of the summer and we didn’t have the best air conditioning so my mom always kept my window open. I hated that window. It was right by some vines that crawled up the house and I was on the second story. I always felt like something was going to come up and crawl through my window. I hated being alone in that

Death in the Basement

03 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have 2 stories for you, well they are not mine they happened to my mother in law when she was younger but both she and my father in law have told me the stories for years. My MIL grew up in an old house in Pennsylvania with a cemetery right behind her house and a church beside her. There were 5 children in total with her brother dying at a very young age from something I can’t remember right now. But anyway, their house was 3 stories and it had a basement, main floor and upstairs. The basement had the laundry, main floor had the kitchen/living room/ bathroom and the top floor had all the bedrooms. They always had at least one or 2 dogs in the house and

A Night at my Cousin’s House…

29 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was late August 2008. My mom decided we would go over to my cousins house in California for the weekend. My mom’s sister had 2 other daughters – one was older than me and her name was Meena and the other younger daughter who was almost my age, which was 12 at the time called Tameena. We all were into ghosts and creepy things and we all had the feeling that the house was haunted. Things would move on their own, toys would come on randomly at night for no reason, stuff would go missing and then be found somewhere else, typical ghost stuff. One night, we decided it would be a good idea to try and maybe summon the spirit or at least try to get in contact

Ghostly Orbs

27 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

Last year, I travelled to see my friends Ali and Ronnie. As I was to spend the night, I had to clear the junk piled up on the couch and floor. They are kind of hoarders. Anyway I really got into the cleaning. I relocated a bunch of stuff to the rear of the room and in doing so, I found two computer monitors which I placed on top of two file cabinets, one directly facing me. I then vacuumed the red carpet really good, leaving nothing on the carpet. The next morning I woke up and noticed two walnuts on the carpet. I am positive that no one had been in the room. As I was sitting there thinking about the walnuts, I looked up at the computer monitor

The Voice from the House…

24 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hello, my name is Lesha and I live in a town in North Carolina where I’ve been all my life. The story I’m sharing is something that happened to me while visiting my grandmother house. One day on a warm spring day my two daughters and I went to see my grandma. I rang The doorbell and as I’m waiting for her to answer, I hear her make a sound she makes to let you know she is coming. Well, we’re waiting for her to come open the door, but she never did. I figured she must be using the restroom as to why she hasn’t made it to the door. So I tell My daughters we will just go to the gym, the gym is right across the street

The Green Stone

18 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I came across this intriguing story this afternoon and thought I would post it here. Sorry about the book plug at then end (not my book!)… In 1979 a team of researchers followed a series of clues left in an early seventeenth-century painting to discover a mysterious gemstone said to have belong to Mary Queen of Scots. When it was taken to an old Victorian house in the heart of England all hell broke loose. Perhaps the most remarkable true account of historical mystery and the paranormal ever told.

My encounter with the Hatman

17 January 2020 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I grew up in an old country house, built near the start of the 1900s in SouthWestern Ontario. The house was out of the city limits, down a dirt road with no street lights and the closest neighbors were no less than 200 yards away from our property line. We had a large yard that was well populated with large old-growth pine trees, cedars, maple, oaks and willows. The inside of our house was rather basic, with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and our patents bedroom on the main floor, while my siblings and I had our rooms on the upstairs floor. The staircase was a typical old-school wooden staircase, complete with creaks and groans as you made your way up each step. The staircase had three initial stairs before

Dragged from my Bed…

10 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was 5, we lived in a mobile home. The hall wasn’t long but, of course, for a child it was. My mom wouldn’t let us watch scary movies so what happened wasn’t triggered by that. So, I went to sleep but this night but there was a different feeling in my room. It felt scared for some reason. I would see dark shadows on my walls but I would just put the covers over my head. Suddenly, my covers were pulled off of my bed and I was afraid to open my eyes as I was being dragged out of my bed down the hall. I tried to scream and I couldn’t. When I opened my eyes there was a dark figure pulling at me. My Dad must

The Nocturnal Visitor

07 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 2017 and 2018, my friend and I brought our horses to ride the Gettysburg battle grounds. We both hoped to have a ghostly experience, but were blown away by the bright sunlit day time ghost figures I captured over my shoulder with my cell phone in 2017. After we returned to her home, she would talk about hearing someone walks around with boots on when she was alone. In 2018, I spent the night before our trip at her house. At some point in the night I was awakened by what felt like 2 hands sneakily pull my sheet down from the foot of the bed. My mind was awake, but sleep paralysis kept me from speaking or moving. I tried desperately to say “no” or “stop” but couldn’t.

The Shadow in the Doorway

01 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

When I was younger, whenever I was sick or feeling sad I would always see this tall dark figure standing in a doorway near me. It always took up a good part of the doorway and I later associated the smell of vodka to it. Now we lived in north Missouri, so I thought it was just an old coal miner that died close to the property we had. So I found it weird when it followed me to Georgia to do my basic training. Upon getting home and seeing family I told my Grandpa, we’ll call him Tom, about it and he told me the story of the apparition. He told me that he saw the same apparition the day his dad, my great-grandpa, died at work. He suffered
