Haunting of a VHS

16 April 2019 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve sent something in previously that I feel was a convoluted mess of experiences that I had growing up in a certain house in the Bay Area of California, but here I am with one particular story that has always remained on my mind. What I’m about to share is 100% true. I know it’s true because I wasn’t alone when this happened. When I was around 14 years old one of my older sisters, my youngest sister and I were all watching a scary movie about an abandoned hospital that was built high on top of a hillside that an old roller coaster tycoon rented out for his wife’s birthday party (anyone who’s into horror movies probably knows the one I’m talking about). This was back when VHS was

The Haunted Factory

15 April 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in high school, I entered a summer program at a college in a nearby city. You basically stay there for several weeks and take classes, and do fun stuff. But there was plenty of time to goof off and run around the city. Well, there was an old factory building in the city that had been abandoned god knows how long ago. I don’t even know what the factory was for. My friends and I decided to go explore this factory. As you can tell by now, exploring dangerous, abandoned places is kind of my thing… It’s summer, but we dressed in jeans and hoodies to protect ourselves for whatever mess we might find in there. There were so many windows, and all of them were broken. We even

A Stoned Ghost?

12 April 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

An Oregon marijuana shop has been the subject of some media coverage recently as a result of some strange activity there – and not by the patrons! Jars moving by themselves, pencils and pens rearranged and other such activity. And all caught on video tape as well. In case you think this video has been doctored or played with, this is a marijuana shop in the USA – the video is mandated by law and tampering with it is a criminal offense. Take a look for yourself.   The video evidence corroborates months of other weirdness in the store: doors locking people out of offices strange sounds in the storeroom small items being moved around “orbs” of light “flying around like crazy” Five Zero Trees Oregon City occupies the site

Little Hands

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

I’ve never lived in a haunted house, but my mother did as a teen. Other houses on her street had strange things going on too. A few homes away from her lived a man and his family. One night, one of his daughters went to bed with a bad headache. The next day, she was dead – she’d passed away from an aneurysm. After the funeral, the family went away to get their minds off the tragedy, and the father asked my uncle – my mom’s brother – to check on their pets. My mom and dad (they were dating then) went with my uncle; my mother had heard there was a grand piano and she wanted to play it, and my dad was studying to be a veterinarian. After

09 April 2019 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Yesterday, The Daily Mirror reported on a creep doll in a scary photo. This chilling snap shows a ‘haunted’ 116-year-old doll appearing to blink in a selfie – despite not having eyes or eyelids. The unusual activity was detected by two ghost hunters inside an abandoned building, known as ‘The Village of the Damned’, in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.   It is claimed that people often feel sick, dizzy and often get headaches in the presence of Janet, as well as hearing footsteps and weird voices. Paranormal investigators Craig Jones, 28, and Matt Wood, 48, couldn’t believe the creepy toy not only appeared have her eyes closed but also had eyeshadow and mascara on.

A Ghostly Sight from My Sleeping Bag

08 April 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was another hot summer in Texas in 1981, and I was excited to be going to summer camp with my best friend to Camp Champions in Marble Falls just outside of Austin. The camp was located on the banks of Lake LBJ, which was part of the Highland Lakes, a chain of six fresh water lakes in Central Texas formed by six dams on the lower Colorado River. The lake-front scene would later set the stage of a remarkable paranormal event. There was excitement in the air as my friend and I were riding in the back of my mom’s station wagon, playing air drums to a new song called “Tom Sawyer” being played on the radio by my generous mother, which was a lifesaving reprieve from The Carpenters

The Pink Bus

04 April 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The trip to pick up the car from the garage after its maintenance wouldn’t take long, but it would be boring. The bus would be packed with people and most likely he would end up standing for most of the journey, being thrown around like a piece of flotsam in an energetic stream. As the bus arrived and he got on, he groaned inwardly. It was packed and there was standing-room only. Not only that, but someone had eaten a healthy dose of garlic the night before and the entire space was filled with rancid, garlic-laced, used air. As he found a space, jostled a little to create a comfort zone around him and tried to stop breathing heavily after running for the bus, he decided that this was what

The Headless Man

01 April 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Violet Fenning is a celebrity in Singapore… here is her story. This incident took place back at the old Mediacorp campus in 2016. I had wanted a photo of myself in my sponsored outfit to credit the sponsors. So, I put the camera on timer mode and posed for a few shots. While I was doing that, a friend who was with me, remarked, “Why is it suddenly so dark outside?” I didn’t think much of her comment then. The next day, while on my journey to Genting with my family, I started going through the camera’s images to delete the unwanted ones. When I saw this photo and zoomed in on it, I was scared speechless. My husband, who was sitting next to me, had never believed in the supernatural until that moment.  When I returned to Singapore,

Strange Attachments

01 April 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Frequently when I fall asleep, due to my intense lucid dreaming abilities, do I wake up in the middle of my sleep cycle to something very surprising! Sometimes it is an actual creature, like a squid or crab. The crab actually came in with full water all around it, like an ocean tide. The squid simply hovered above me. Most of the time though, I see shimmering white molecules in the shape of hairless human-like figures standing tall over me. As soon as I see them, I usually let out a shocked yell, but than fall back asleep as they disappear. So, what are these strange angels that are nearby as I enter the astral realms? From where do they come and who are they exactly? We can take interpretations

I Saw Some Strange Stuff in a Tunnel in Vietnam

29 March 2019 | Living Ghosts, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve kept my mouth shut for almost 50 years, why the hell would I start talkin’ now. Well friends, terminal cancer will do that to you. Shit you thought you’d take to the grave suddenly becomes shit you desperately wanna tell someone … anyone. I won’t bore you with a long lament about my time in Vietnam, it was shitty, it was shitty for everyone involved, it was particularly shitty for me as I was 5’3. If you don’t know what being particularly short during the Vietnam war entailed let me fill you in, you arrive in country and a senior officer points at you and says “You’d be a good fit for the tunnel commandos, wanna join?”. Now technically it’s a question, as service in those platoons was voluntary,

The Old Hag – A Description by a Novelist

28 March 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The Old Hag and such forms like the woman with the long hair parted in the middle and so on are also joined by shadow people in many experiences of sleep paralysis. Sometimes, the Old Hag gets sexual as well and the experience becomes erotic. A novelist called Robert Moss has also described the experience of being visited by a horrific hag which transforms into a beautiful woman. Moss remembers how, as a teenager, a horrible hag-like creature with many arms and floppy, withered breasts entered his room and attacked him. He lay paralyzed as the entity moved up the bed, stood on his chest, and then lowered herself onto him. Moss explains how, Despite my disgust, I am aroused and now she is riding me. Her teeth are like

The Lamp

27 March 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sometimes I am convinced there are parallel realities….. Here is a story from Reddit that hints at another reality. In my last semester at a certain college, I was assaulted by a football player for walking where he was trying to drive (note he was 325lbs I was 120lbs), while laying unconscious on the ground, I lived a different life. I met a wonderful young lady, she made my heart skip and my face red, I pursued her for months and dispatched a few jerk boyfriends before I finally won her over. After two years we got married and almost immediately she bore me a daughter. I had a great job and my wife didn’t have to work outside of the house. When my daughter was two she [my wife]

Something on the Baby Monitor….

26 March 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A couple of British newspapers are carrying a story about a scratched baby and a ‘ghost’ on a baby monitor…. The video is certainly creepy….. what do you think? A young couple have claimed they are being driven from their home by a violent ‘schizophrenic’ spirit after footage showed a ‘ghostly male’ figure walking past their daughter’s crib. Mother-of-one Heather Brough, 25, from Michigan, discovered three deep ‘purple scratches’ on her one-year-old baby’s cheek after waking her from a nap. The unexplained injuries on her daughter Lily, prompted Ms Brough and her fiance Josh Higgins, 30, who live at his mother’s guesthouse, to check their baby camera. And when reviewing the footage, they claim to have seen a male figure briskly walking past Lily’s cot before disappearing into thin-air. Apparently,

The Birthday Reaper

25 March 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It stood by my bed at night, the renegade of childhood solace, always wanting to be seen. Reminiscing through my teenage years, I sometimes shudder. But one October night tremors through me most. It was the night of my fifteenth birthday. My girlfriends had planned to stay over after the celebration but my mother had to be at work very early the next morning. So everyone left the party around eight p.m. Mom went straight to bed. I had showered, slipped on my favorite fuzzy jammies, and slipped beneath the comforter. With my feather pillow behind my back, I sunk my eyes deep into the tenth chapter of a mystery novel. Forty minutes in I became very drowsy and began to nod off. The book fell centerfold over my chest

Another Haunted Hotel

22 March 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My last book was Motel Hell and it was a collection of reviews by scared guests of various hotels and motels around the world. It’s amazing what you can find on TripAdvisor! Anyway, here is another review of a Wetherspoons in Bodmin, Cornwall for you. It’s not in the book…….. but the place looks creepy! A reviewer on TripAdvisor said of this Bodmin pub and hotel – Chapel-an-Gansblydhen – We stayed in Bodmin for 2 nights and visited the Wetherspoons converted Wesleyan Methodist chapel on the first night. We loved the atmosphere of the building and the original features that have been retained were a pleasure to see. We spent the evening envisaging what it would have been like in the mid-1800s, and the comings and goings of the churchgoers
