The Ghost In The Clock

30 March 2016 | March 2016

Here is a short story from my book – Ghosts in the Machines. When still just a girl, the lady recounting the story had visited her grandmother’s neighbors house together with her grandmother. At some point, she needed to go to the bathroom and on the way back, she noticed the huge ornate grandfather clock. Something like steam seemed to be emanating from the clock and, as she watched innocently, this steam materialized into the outline of a man. The man was nice and spoke to her kindly and, at the time, she wasn’t afraid at all. On returning to the living room she told her grandmother about the clock and the man and took the two astonished older ladies into the hall. Of course, there was nothing there but

The Gates To Hell?

29 March 2016 | Creepy places, March 2016

Out in the middle of nowhere about 60km north of Prague sits a strange castle. No one is sure when it was first built nor why. It was not on any trade route, it wasn’t near water, it wasn’t defending anything except a remote hillside far off the beaten track. Even more mysteriously, the castle is often omitted from maps of the region and its origins – unlike most castles in the Czech Republic – are not well known. Originally, it seems, travelers passing through the region were subjected to visitations of demons and strange creatures in the vicinity. Back in the 900’s, one can well imagine how remote this location would have been and how frightening the dark forest would have been. Strange creatures such as the left-handed female

The Haunted Cemetery of Walnut Mound

25 March 2016 | March 2016

On the 13th Oct 2014, I was on holiday in Chicago to meet my old friend Ron. I stayed with him for some days and then we went to meet another old friend, Jake, in Viroqua, a small town nearby. Ron and I went to meet him to celebrate his 16th Birthday 16th and Halloween. We lived very well in Jake’s house, it was big and his room was full of gaming equipment. We nicely celebrated his birthday with a huge party given by him and his parents for his friends and family on the 24th Oct. We travelled to lots of places near Viroqua up to the 30th Oct., but due to some business meeting, his parents had to go to go out on 30th Oct to Chicago for

Ghostly Hand Prints

24 March 2016 | March 2016

While serving in the Army, stationed at Ft. Hood, I had a huge life-changing experience. I had just arrived from Germany and some guys I spent time with at home wanted to show me around. They talked about a place where strange things happened. We went one night to a place out in the country between a Cove off of Hwy 190, which they said was a strange place to spend time. Apparently the story behind the place was that a load of children were travelling on a bus, the bus ran off a large bridge on the road and the bodies were never recovered. We parked a few hundred feet from this bridge on this single lane road and they poured baby powder on the back of the car.

A Very Haunted House

23 March 2016 | March 2016

Back in the 1970’s, when I was 10 years old, my dad and his second wife, along with her two kids all moved into a house together. The house was in a pretty rundown part of town that was not far from Dearborn in Michigan. From the very first time I stepped into that house I knew it wasn’t right. Dad and I were in the house together, just a few days before we moved in. Dad was measuring the place up and we were working out where the furniture would go. I was hanging around in the bathroom on the lower level and dad was in the garage. I heard knocking on the wall and it seemed to be coming from the kitchen. I thought it was Dad—but when

A Peeing Ghost In The Bathroom?

22 March 2016 | March 2016

We we’re staying at a small hotel in the Lake District of England. My husband and I were asleep in the room but something woke me up. I watched the shadow of a tall figure walk into the bathroom and then listened to someone pee in the toilet. I thought it was my husband at first but then when no one came out of the bathroom, I felt across the bed and found my husband still lying there asleep. Weird huh? A peeing ghost in the bathroom?   Submitted by Anon.

50,000 Dead People Piled Floor to Ceiling

21 March 2016 | Creepy places, March 2016

In 2001, a startling discovery was made in Brno during a survey of catacombs under the center of the city. Although disturbed by underground water and mud, the remains of 50,000 people were found stuffed in a small room. The room was floor to ceiling with the skeletal remains of the City’s former inhabitants. After restoration work, the Brno Ossuary was opened to the public in 2012 ands is the second largest Ossuary in Europe after the Paris catacombs. So how did they get there? In the 16th and 17th Century, due to cholera, the Plague, war and so on, people tended to die in large number s periodically. They were buried in the churchyard near the Church of St. James inside the city walls however, to cater for such

Brno’s Strange and Creepy Mummy Show

18 March 2016 | Creepy places, March 2016, Your True Encounters

Here in Brno is one of the creepiest places I have ever visited. It is known as the Capuchin Crypt. On the outside, it is nothing but yet another small but ornate church but inside…….. It is Brno’s strange and creepy mummy show…. The Capuchin monks who used the church for many years were an order who vowed poverty. As a part of this austerity program, they used just a single coffin over and over again, laying the body of their dead colleague on the ground, rosary in hand, in the crypt. Due to the nature of the soil and the air currents down there, the bodies became mummified. Each body was laid on the floor with its head on a pile of bricks that served as a pillow. The

Is My House Haunted?

17 March 2016 | March 2016, Uncategorized

Several years ago, I moved into a four-bedroom house that my brother had just vacated. After a few weeks, strange things started to happen. At first, I thought I could always see a little girl’s shadow following my oldest son, who was 11. My second youngest son, who was eight at the time, slept in a room alone. There was always a strange presence in the room when we walked into it. She also owned a doll, and every time at around 2pm it started talking on its own, even when it was turned off. Many times when I left my bedroom door, I could hear people talking, and I would see strange lights on my door. They seemed to be the kinds of lights you would get if the

The Strange Voice

16 March 2016 | March 2016

I have always been a little “different,” as some of my friends and family might say, but I have had some very interesting experiences! My first experience, that to this very day I still do not understand, happened when I was about six years old. My Dad had just put me down to sleep in my bedroom when I started to hear a voice. The voice was always the same: calm and, almost seemed, friendly. It would ask me, “Jump up the wall with me.” Meaning, up the wall in my bedroom. So I was basically jumping against the wall. I then would feel hands pulling me up and down and I would laugh, and so would the voice. Soon, the voice was asking me to do even more strange

Mysterious Thing

12 March 2016 | March 2016

While my brother was staying with me, we both just slept in my bed in my room. After we had both gone to bed and I was in a deep sleep, I suddenly snapped awake and couldn’t move. It felt like I had a something akin to an elephant standing on top of my chest. I opened my eyes wide and saw this vague black figure lying on top of me, holding me into the bed. It seemed weightless, but felt heavier than anything I’ve ever known. I tried desperately to scream, and to be honest, I’m not so sure a noise even managed to escape my mouth. The figure opened what seemed to be its mouth showing these strange razor sharp teeth, it then screeched in my face, and

Fancy Dress Ghost Horror

10 March 2016 | March 2016

I was at a fancy dress party – everything was fine and people were having fun. I was wearing in a detective costume and my friend was in a knight uniform. All of a sudden it went dark and me and my friend were the only people in the room. Then a boy came down the stairs with a knife. I said “KNIFE costume,” and my friend laughed. The boy said “I’m gonna cut you.” Well, as you can imagine, I was weirded out by this as we had not seen the boy at the party at all. He ran at us and I pushed him away. He disappeared and the lights went off. I heard a the sound of a knife cutting. Then the lights came back on and everyone
