Zeb – The Angry Ghost

27 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was eight, my father retired from the military. We moved to North Carolina to be close to my mothers family. My mom found a 3 bedroom home 1/4 mile from my grandparents. My two sisters and I shared a room. It was huge! Enough room for our full size bed, a twin size bed, 4 dressers with a space in between you could have put two more full size beds and still had room. The first night there I woke up in the middle if the night. I could feel someone staring at me. And it definitely wasn’t in a nice way. I rolled over towards the door and saw an old man in a wheelchair. He looked furious. He was pointing at me and mouthing something but

The Unseen Presence In My House

23 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

I was visiting Reddit this morning and came across this story. I reproduce it here because it sounds very similar to some of the experiences I had growing up… I will start by giving a brief description of the house in which I grew up in and then I will share an experience of my dads. First of all, I could talk about this house forever! Way too much happened in my 18-years of living there to even try and explain in this very short story. As far back as I can remember, the house was always very active, very creepy, and no matter where you walked in that house, you would always feel as though you were been watched. Right from a very early age, I had experienced creepy

The Poltergeist That Likes to Start Fires

22 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Nedamov u Dubé is a small village in the Czech republic known mostly as a place school kids go to camp in the summer. However, over the last few years, it has become famous for an occurrence of a poltergeist with a difference – this poltergeist is an arsonist. It all seems to have started when a house burned down a couple of years ago in the village. The firefighters could establish no cause for the mysterious fire that gutted the building. Things got stranger however when rebuilding began. Over the course of 6 days, the fire fighters were called out to no fewer than 45 fires at the property. According to the construction workers and the local fire fighters, things would simply spontaneously combust including articles of clothing, wooden

The Ghost of the Hanging Student

21 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About fifteen years ago, I helped my boyfriend move into his first home. It was a one bedroom flat. It was in a dingy building but it was his first place and we thought it was exciting. As you opened the front door there was a long hallway with a door to your right, the bathroom, further down the hallway another door to your left which lead to the bedroom, and straight ahead at the very end was a doorway to the kitchen/sitting room. There was no door though, just the empty frame. I always felt as though some one was stood in the doorway with their hands on the top of the frame swinging as in a playful way staring at me. I didn’t like the feeling and my

The Haunted House Next Door

15 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was a child I lived in a rural part of the country. Our house was perfectly fine but the next-door house had a serious of strange events happen that could be called paranormal. During the 1800’s a man had murdered his family in that house. Then he had committed suicide. After that few people had wanted to stay in the house and people always told of “blood running under the crack of the door.” From time to time we would hear noises from next door. Crying, sometimes banging, sometimes tapping. It was nothing extreme but a family moved in and they started redecorating the house. After a few days, the wife of the family who moved in knocked on our door and asked if we knew anything about

Could My House Be Haunted?

14 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve lived in the same house in Alaska my whole life. It is a three-story house that is about 30-40 years old. Ever since I was a kid I was constantly terrified in my house sometimes when I’m walking up or down my stairs I get this sudden urge to run. I don’t know why. I always feel as though I am being watched, especially when I am alone, but even when I’m not alone. My father died of cancer a little over a year ago, in my house that I live in but I have yet to have any signs of him lingering in my house but my mom said on the one year anniversary of his death she woke up to him calling her name. Before he passed

The Black Eyed Beckoning Ghost

02 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This took place several years ago, when I was staying with a friend of mine, Monica, and her family in Maine. Her parents had a summer place out there and I would go with them quite often. We were in my friend’s bedroom when I saw something walk past the window. This is a second floor bedroom so I was shocked to see something go past the window. I didn’t get much of a look at it—but I know it was completely white—pale even. After that I tried to tell myself I hadn’t seen anything. Monica didn’t seem to be bothered by it so we both spent the afternoon reading and talking together. The next day we were outside and I had forgotten about the bedroom incident. We were in

Great Grandma Is Still Around Our House

31 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I lived with my paternal grandparents most of my childhood. When I was about 5 years old, my grandparents sold their large Victorian-style house to move us all into my great grandmothers tiny shack of a home. My great grandmother was in poor heath and had Alzheimer’s. My “Nanaw”, “Pop”, Uncle Bennie, and I all pitched in to help care for Grandma Grace. About a year later grandma Grace passed away in her sleep in her bedroom. I remember how strange it was that morning when I woke up and looked in her room and she was still asleep as she was usually awake before I was. It was our morning routine that I would wake up and go into her room and sit in the chair beside her bed

Did I See My Brother’s Ghost?

24 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1990 or so, my husband and I were preparing to replace my mother’s kitchen flooring. The kitchen door opened on to a high outside deck with its railng top about 6 feet above the ground. We had the kitchen door open in order to take out the old linoleum, and I proceeded to bring in the shop vac. As I sat it down, it suddenly roared on with its loud motor-then shut off-then roared on again and off. My husband stopped pulling the refrigerator out from the wall and asked, “Did that just turn on without being plugged in?” Incredulously it had! I glanced out the open doorway and saw my brother’s ghost float by the railing. He was transparent but had color. He was in a walking

The Black Skeleton Entity in my House

23 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In September, 1988, when I was a kid, I experienced a black entity formed like a skeleton that haunted my house. The first incident took place one night when I had gone to bed early after watching TV with my parents. Late that night, around 3am, I was awake on my bed when the bedroom door opened and I heard a whistling sound, but I knew the TV was turned off and everyone was sleeping. I thought nothing more about it. Over the next few nights I kept hearing that sound all the time. I knew it was impossible to hear it, but it was real. I stood up on my bed to see outside the door, but it was too dark and I could not see anything. I knew

Why are You In My House?

20 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened in December, 1984. My family had just moved into a farm house in Arizona. I had a chair next to my bed that I usually just used for storage. I woke up one night around 3am. because I felt like someone was staring at me. I thought it was one of my parents at first. When I rolled over, I saw a teenage boy sitting in the chair on the left side of my office. All I could hear was a voice in my head screaming. I sat with a start and the boy stood up. In my head I could hear his voice. He wanted to know why I was in his house. I tried to tell him that it was our house and that we had

Shadows and Ghosts On Yelp

19 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

Not many encounters being submitted at the moment, so to keep things going, I was looking at Tripadvisor again, but then I found YELP! What a treasure trove of encounters that site is. Check these out… (I have edited these accounts). a full discussion of shadow people, the Old Crone, and other weird experiences…. Chas S. starts a post as follows…. I believe in ghosts. Always have. But never had a personal experience to back up my belief. Until last night…and now I’m beyond freaking out. I got up to go to bathroom at about 2am last night, sort of half asleep, but definitely NOT dreaming or sleepwalking. I did my business, came out of the bathroom, and there was something standing in the corner of the living room, sort

The Ghost in a Wheelchair Who Terrorized Us

I have to say that this story submitted by Christina is truly horrific….. When I was eight, my father retired from the military. We moved to North Carolina to be closer to my mothers family.

The Haunting Horror of Small Town England

12 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story took place in the 1930’s and it was recounted to me by my grandmother. She explained that when she and my grandfather were a young couple with a small child moving in to the first real home, a two up-two down house, no garden, and an outhouse in a cobbled back yard. They did not know at that time that every family that lived there something bad happened to them if they stayed too long in the house. In fact, the last person who had the house before them had hung himself in the outhouse. Not long after they moved in, strange things started to happen. They would be sitting in front of the fire and the front door latch would begin moving up and down. At first, they

The Dark Entity That Came From The Basement

10 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My family and I moved into a little house in New Jersey. I could never go to sleep at night facing my room. I would have to face the wall and hide under the covers. I would always feel a presence right in front of me if I faced my room. It would watch me and I’d be terrified and feel the chills at night. That would be the worst part of the day. I was home alone while my parents were out for the evening. I was sitting at my computer when out of nowhere I felt it again — right behind me. I got so cold and I couldn’t move. I don’t know if it was a paralysis or I was too terrified to look back and see
