The Water Witch

21 February 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened when I was nine years old. I’m now 28. Me and my friends Bill, Mark, Ben, were planning a sleepover before school started back up. So we decided it would be Ben’s house. We did what all boys do – watch movies, play video games and pranks. We decided to tell scary stories too. We all told ours except for Ben he started telling his about a woman who lived here like 70 years ago. She was a witch. She had killed her 9 boys in the lake behind their house. She brings them to the lake and drowns them. After that we went to bed about four hours. Later, I heard a sound like snag, drag, snag, drag as if someone was dragging wet clothing. I hit

The Devil in Disguise

19 February 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

(Sumansaa is the evil entity known by many in the Kadazan community in the West Coast Division in Sabah – North Borneo). The story about Sumansaa was told by my grand dad. He said the thing looked like a goat but it is actually a devil that only appears on rainy nights. The body is long; I remember grand dad said it was almost three feet long with its head and eyes tilted towards the sky. It doesn’t have any sense of direction at all instead a black bird sits on its head and help the goat find its way in the dark. Grand dad told me how he came face-to-face with the Sumansaa when he was in his 20’s. Not only that, he even chased the thing with his

Mysterious Happenings at Stanley Hotel

31 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In late July 2019, I stayed overnight in the Stanley hotel with my parents, niece, and nephew. They stayed in Room 330, while I was in a different room on the 2nd Floor, nowhere near their room. I had been to the hotel before, but never toured or stayed before. The last time I went, I trekked down the stairs near the front desk. This led to a sort of underground tunnel. In this tunnel, my brother-in-law and I came across a small lounge/bar. I spoke with a few employees there for just a few minutes. Right away, I felt something uneasy in the air, and these employees confirmed my feelings. There were rapid temperatures changes, and feelings that someone else was right next to me, and just generally a

The Forest Demon

28 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was 15 and I remember it was around the beginning of October. I had just had dinner and decided to go wonder around outside since we lived in a subdivision that borders cornfield and forest there was always a lot to do. I wondered into a mowed field hoping to see a buck since they often hung out there in the afternoons eating leftovers from the harvest. My brother and I always tried to outdo each other by finding a buck with the most points on his antlers. So before I knew it, I had wondered out pretty far and I was surprised that I hadn’t seen a single deer or rabbit anywhere which was strange, so I decided to head back. As I turned around there was something

The Ghosts of Miners Scared Me!

13 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So this is a bit of a story. But while I was dating my fiancé, I would spend my weekends at his ranch. His ranch was 50 miles out of town plus a few miles of forest road just to get to the front gate. And, it was located right on top of a very old failed silver mine from the late 1800-1910. The remains of the miner kitchen gave us that timeframe because of how the tins were sealed. Also, we had maps of where things where laid out. Plus the mine ruins. So, my one full summer there helping the ranch I spent weekends there, and helped with organizing the farmhands and stuff. And they kept talking about orbs in specific areas of the ranch. I understood some

The Ghostly Inmate

08 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was listening to some of your first responder stories (weird Darkness) today and it reminded me of something that happened when I was a deputy sheriff. I worked corrections 9am to 9pm so I worked day and night shift. One night I was leaving and stopped to talk to my LT. The jail was locked down and the night shift officers were starting to do their checks. We were talking over the day when he looked on the monitor and saw an inmate in one of the pods sitting at a table watching TV. I checked and saw the inmate myself. The pod was locked down and the lights were out but I could see this guy illuminated by the glow of the television. The lieutenant called for two

The Unseen Dishwasher

30 December 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

For 30 years I was a 911 dispatcher. You know the person who answers the phone when you call 911 and yell and scream at to make someone get there faster.. even though emergency personnel are driving as fast as they can? The building that I worked in the past 26 years was haunted by who/what we don’t know, but almost everybody that has worked there has had some type of experience. I mainly worked the graveyard shift, aptly named if you ask me. I enjoyed it because of 1. for the variety of calls you got and 2. I didn’t have to deal with the brass. So onto my story. I was working the graveyard shift a couple of years ago. The dispatch center had 6 cubicles where you

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

Haunted Timberline Lodge from THE SHINING!

11 November 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sometime in 1981, I was leaving Seoul, Korea, where I was stationed with the 501st Military Intelligence Battalion and coming home for a brief vacation with my parents in Sacramento. After this vacation, I would be leaving for an OPFOR (Opposing Forces) unit in Fort Knox, Kentucky. During this small vacation, I hooked up with an Army buddy of mine named Wayne Johnson and we headed up to Mount Hood, Oregon. We were both fans of Stanley Kubrick/Stephen King’s The Shining. In case you don’t know it yet, the exterior of the Overlook Hotel was filmed at the Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood in Oregon for the Stanley Kubrick’s film adaption of The Shining. The hotel is majestic and it is fit for a King and his royal court. The

The Creepy Camp Man

07 November 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a true story that scares me to this day. It all started on my school camp in Borneo around middle school we were only staying for the week and a company ran our activities, it was mainly construction on a school playground for the native school children, and after a day of hard work we all headed back to the site, where we all stayed in bamboo huts six of us in each room. Me and my friends were all heading to bed and mosquito proofing our beds. I was the last one awake and locked our door so no other students came in to make pranks or whatever they thought was funny. It was a basic bamboo lock and all teachers and camp leaders knew how to

The Lady in the Road

17 October 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story comes from my father. It happened when my father was 17. My grandmother wanted to visit my uncle Lupe, so she asked all of her daughters and sons if they were willing too take her. No one wanted to go except for my father. They got on the road heading too my uncle Lupe’s house just outside of the city limits so driving on the road meant nothing but trees left and right. However, my dad noticed a young in her early 20s women just walking along the side of the road. The thing is though that when my dad got closer, it looked like she had no feet. It was like she was floating! mM father brushed it off as his mind playing tricks on him, but

The Lady in the Church Yard

18 September 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Last year, I visited friends in the UK and we spent the weekend visiting old churches and other mystical places. The weather was beautiful and so at one church, we decided to sit on the grass and have lunch. The church was surrounded by its own little graveyard of course. I finished my sandwich and decided to explore the churchyard a bit. as I entered one corner of the churchyard – an overgrown and abandoned part – I had a vivid impression of a woman dressed in a long Victorian dress. She looked sternly at me and was plainly upset and annoyed waving me away. The atmosphere changed to to one of well – being unwelcome. I returned to my friends and mentioned that I had seen or had an

The Phantom Truck

03 September 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I worked security at an army depot in eastern Oregon from 2003 to 2009. The base had been a munitions depot meaning they stored, processed, manufactured or shipped munitions all over the country until it came down on the base closure list under President Clinton. The munitions had been moved out and most of those operations had been stopped. The reason the base wasn’t totally shut down was because it also stored chemical weapons that couldn’t be moved and were to be destroyed on site. When I hired on the demilitarization or demil plant was being built. What occurred happened either 2005 or 2006 on a Saturday about 3 pm in the afternoon. The day was a pleasant spring day. One of the duties I had for my patrol was

Velhartice Cemetery

21 August 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The cemetery at Velhartice in the Czech Republic is supposedly a very, very scary place. Firstly, on the side wall of the small chapel in the cemetery are dark spots that seem to resemble faces. Even if painted or freshly plastered these spots soon reappear again. This is said to be as a result of an original small wooden chapel being burned down by robbers with some locals trapped inside it. There is also a story made famous in a well-known Czech poem about a local girl whose fiancé returns from the war. Being very happy to see him, she at first isn’t suspicious about his request to marry in the middle of the night. Off they go to get married at midnight and the girl becomes increasingly suspicious of
