The Haunted House

24 July 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The old house looked fine in the day, sitting far removed from any signs of civilization although the city of Cincinnati, Ohio was just across the river. The long, twisting driveway wound it’s way up a hill that was guarded by bushes and trees that had been planted some two hundred years previously when the first horticulturalist in America carved his home on this high hill in Indiana. At least that what I was told as we made our way to see my Mom’s sister and her husband. I took everything with a grain of salt that had to do with Aunt June for she was something of a character, as were all of my mother’s siblings, but Uncle Kirk seemed a reasonable and practical man and he had never

The Ghost Girl in the Old Room

23 July 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story begins last Fall (2017), when my family decided to buy / renovate a house that had previously been abandoned for the last 19 years. This house was a quite large, 2 story farm house that had been built in 1871 and hadn’t been lived in since the late 1990s. At first sight, the house looked like something from a modern day horror movie with rooms that had collapsed ceilings and holes in the walls and floors, to whole rooms that had been sealed off with plastic wrap for who knows how long. The house from the first time I step inside it gave me an uneasy feeling and I felt that something was watching me all the time. We started cleaning out the house and take out all

Creepy Memories

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

So I’ve lived in the same house to the current date and we’ve had some strange things happen. I can only recall a few that I have experienced personally and can still remember as some of them happened when I was very young. To start from the beginning, I remember my mom telling me that when I was between 1-2 years old, I would be playing with my toys in the living room being quite happy and content, and then after a while, I would run to her scared asking if she sees the man in the corner. She couldn’t see anyone, but I refused to play in that room for a while. Eventually I’d go back in, play, and see the man again and go find my mom. From

Whispers in the Night

13 July 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About 8 years ago, my young son and I moved into a new house in a great neighborhood. A two story bi-level with 3 bedrooms and 3 bath. Our first home. We couldn’t be happier. Despite my joy, I’m always nervous the first night sleeping in a new place. The master bedroom had its own full bathroom. I’d left that door open before going to bed. I normally sleep on my back but there’s no window in the bathroom so it looks like a gaping hole of blackness which was mildly creeping me out. I watch a lot of horror movies and have quite the imagination so I roll over so I can’t see it. As I’m lying there settling in, eyes closed preparing for sleep I suddenly hear a

A Haunting and a Dream

12 July 2018 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This is kind of a series of weird events that has happened to me. The first one happened in my first house that I lived in when I moved to Phoenix. We were renting and the company that owned it said the previous owner was an old lady that lived there alone. They said she passed away at the hospital, but I always wondered. Small things would happen randomly. The tv in our bedroom would turn on by itself. A dresser drawer would be open when you knew you had closed all of them. The weirdest thing that happened there involved my laundry. I had a couple loads I was going to wash, so I threw them all in a pile on the floor of my bedroom to sort. I

Ouija Halloween

21 May 2018 | Haunted houses, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

There were always signs in our old house that it was haunted. Before mom, dad and I lived there, it was owned by my great grand ma and grand pa Nana and Dee which whom passed away when I was very young and that we believed haunted the house. Some of the strange happenings were disembodied voices (which my mom claimed sounded like Nana), things disappearing only to be found later in the spot it was missing, leaving the house for errands to find the bath tub filled with water and wet foot prints on the floor, distorted faces reflecting in windows and in mirrors and the feeling you have when someone sits on the edge of the bed, but no one is there, to just name a few. I

I see Dead People!

15 May 2018 | G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Yesterday’s post by Nick got me to thinking. When I was growing up, I saw ghosts all of the time. Later in life, I decided to go ahead and shut down that ability as far as possible. But what is it really like to see a ghost? Well, the first thing I would say is there is an atmosphere. It’s like an electrical storm is about to hit. You sense something – some energy – that is forming nearby. It makes the hair on the back of my head stand up on end and it gets my adrenaline flowing. Shortly after that, I used to develop fear. I knew, it knew and I was scared. I now believe that it is the fear that attracts such things and that this

The Ghost of Gladstone Villa

03 May 2018 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

My family and I lived at a large property called Gladstone Villa in the former mining town of Bargoed, in the Caerphilly county borough of the South Wales valleys in the UK. From 1969 to 1978 we experienced activity that simply defied rational explanation such as lights going off and on. We witnessed electrical cables being pulled and my grandfather Bill claimed to have had a glass bottle thrown towards him as he entered the main bedroom, missing him by inches. I didn’t personally see this myself, but I still recall the time he came from there with the broken bottle in his hands and he told us what happened !!There was the occasional sighting but this was a very rare indeed, so rare that in all the nine years

My Haunted In- Laws Place

22 March 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have had several unusual experiences throughout my life. I like to say unusual instead of paranormal, because of the skeptic in me. However, the most recent one occurred 2-years ago. At this time, my then fiancé, now husband, and I had moved in with my in-laws in order to save for our wedding and college. I had two experiences at this house. My first experience occurred when I was home by myself. I had just gotten out of the shower and across our narrow hallway to our bedroom. I dropped the towel to get dressed. I then heard a door handle jiggle somewhere inside the house. I instinctively picked up the towel to save everyone any embarrassment. I called out “hello” to see who had come home, but no

I Wish it Would STOP!

05 March 2018 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This has been going on a long time and I’ve been trying to find help but no one believes me. I need to preface this by saying i’m a writer so just cause it might not look written by a scared teenager that’s why. But also i’m not a very good writer so if it doesn’t seem ‘professional’, that’s why. Anyway my house has been the home of a spirit of some sort for as long as I can remember. Now I know what you’re thinking, and no this isn’t the normal “I noticed a ghost in my house but that’s it” kind of thing, this is a “Whatever is in here hates me” kind of thing. I’m not sure how to start this all so I guess I’ll state

Struggles with Sleep Paralysis….

02 March 2018 | Black Eyed Kids, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Not sure where to begin on this, but I’m writing tonight because I came across a story while reading about shadow people. I now know what I saw one night back in 2010. But my story is strange. I read where the BEK wanted in but my encounter, he was already in. Now let me back track a little since I was a kid I seen ghosts and heard noises. That being said, I’m not and never have been a believer in ghosts even though my friends and I have seen things, I tend to believe it’s a mind trick or maybe something else. I grew up with and still have what is called sleep paralysis. I have seen many things during those moments – a gorilla clawing at my

My First Spooky Experience

05 February 2018 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was almost four, my mom invited my aunt and cousin over to our house. I was excited to see my cousin as I would have someone to play with. I didn’t hear them arrive but mom called out to let me know my cousin was there. I left my bedroom at the end of the hallway and ran into the living room to see my mom, aunt, cousin, and several other people. She and I quickly decided to go to my room and on the way, she asked me who everyone else there was. I told her I didn’t know. Eventually, we’re bored so we go back to our moms and I think it’s weird that our moms are watching TV with all of these people around. I

The Rocking Chair

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

So this isn’t very long, but I was at my mum’s friends house and was staying the night and before I went to bed I was sitting on this big, super heavy rocking chair. At about 3.30 am, I woke up to a huge thump and went to investigate and the rocking chair that was in the living room the night before was in the 2nd spare bedroom and then I felt something brush past me so I turned around and standing there was a young boy. He waved at me and then vanished. Submitted by Samantha Bradley

The Whistling Ghost of Calke Abbey

06 January 2018 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations

Calke Abbey is a run down stately home that is now owned by the National Trust in the UK. It is kept in the state that it was in when handed over to the NT and so visitors are treated to a glimpse of its former glories. It’s peeling walls and overgrown gardens paint a picture of the decadence of a former period and the harsh realities of changing family fortunes. The stately home was built on the site of a former religious house – Calke Priory – but it lasted only a few years and was eventually dissolved by Henry VIII. The estate was eventually purchased by Henry Harpur in 1622 for £5,350 and it stayed in the Harpur family until the National Trust began caring for it in

Caught On Camera?

20 December 2017 | Evidence?, Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

Stephen Lee set up a camera to watch his dogs and might just have captured something altogether different. Take a look and let us know what you think? Of course, the video has been picked up by several mainstream media outlets as well in recent days. Apparently, the room overlooks a back garden and so there are no car lights or anything to cause these anomalies and, just to make things creepier, his home was once used as a hospital!
