The Thing on the Road

30 June 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This was in South-Eastern Kentucky back most likely in the 1930s. People in the hills of Kentucky didn’t have modern conveniences like the rest of the nation had as there weren’t many roads for cars so everybody mainly walked or rode horses to get where they were going. This is how he told it:- When he was younger he would tie one on and ride home on his horse. The horse knew the way. One dark night the horse was plodding along and he could see something sitting on the stump of a tree that had been cut down. As he got closer the horse started slowing down. It was a small black thing sitting on the stump. He tried to get the horse to go faster but it wouldn’t.

Hugging Margie

23 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had a paper route when I was younger and delivered it to a lady named Margie. She was very old and lived alone, so I’d take the paper inside and check on her. One day, I went in and she was asleep on the bed, so I put the paper on the table and left. The next day, she was asleep again, and the other newspaper was still unopened. The following day, I went in and Margie was awake. She said she was very happy and gave me a hug. But the day after that, there were cars outside her house. Apparently, Margie had died in her bed, three or four days beforehand. Somehow I spoke to and hugged her about 24 hours earlier when she was already dead.

Ghostly Kiss

08 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had moved to a new city and had found an apartment overlooking a nice street. That there was a graveyard right behind the house was something I figured much later. Anyway, this was a first-floor house with huge windows in the bedroom. The air was fresh and minty so I left the windows open at night. Right beneath my window, the guard of the building used to sit with his dog. One night, at around 3 am I was woken up by the guard’s dog’s manic barking. I was just thinking to myself why this dog is barking like mad and why isn’t the guard doing anything about it, when all of a sudden, the dog went quiet. My room became a bit extra chilly almost immediately and I

Haunted by a Dark Spirit

04 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Let me be the first to say this is going to be a long post. I wrote it as a means to, I suppose cope with all that was happening at the time, and while it is the high-lights of the insanity that happened. I think that I was genuinely being hunted or… haunted by something evil. Even worse, I wasn’t alone in witnessing this thing’s work. Let me know what you think. I was twenty-one years old when my grandmother who raised me, died of cancer. Her death was an extremely emotional, and mental toll that forced me away from college, and made me return home to the house she and my grandfather built. It wasn’t ever finished, a three-bedroom two-bath home surrounded by the red clay of the

My House has A Doppelganger Problem

28 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Emerson Del, I’m a small-time musician from Toronto and this story changed me from being a skeptic. In 2018, I lived in the basement of my aunt and uncle’s house. It was fully furnished and had a full kitchen and bathroom down there, in short, I rarely went upstairs to see my aunt and uncle because I had everything I needed in my place. One day my Aunt and Uncle were discussing how they were going to go up to the cottage, I heard them talking from downstairs. When I heard the door close I assumed that they had decided to take one car and head up there. Later that day, I was cleaning up when I heard a knock at the door. I thought, “That’s strange

The Blue Dress

25 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Calke Abbey: Visited there a few years ago and had a strange experience. In one of the big staterooms you get to, whilst standing by a fireplace, I suddenly became aware, as I looked down to the floor, I was where a very fine, cornflower blue, crinoline style dress – I could feel myself wearing it and I could hear it “swooshing” as I moved. The fire was alight ( wasn’t really). I swear, for a couple of minutes, I was transported back, or taken over by someone memories!!! Submitted by Joanne

A Ghostly Funeral

14 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

When I was a kid we used to visit family in another part of town. I knew all the kids around so would often go on my own for the afternoon. On my way back from visiting a friend I took a shortcut. It led through a wooded area where there was an old cemetery. I looked at the old stones, most of them unreadable, as I walked past. I continued on the path and came to the stream with a wide bridge. My sneakers made a stomping sound on the old boards. As I was about halfway I saw a funeral party approaching. The sun was close to setting and was in my eyes but the group was all dressed in black and several men at the front were

This is a Very Haunted Hotel, For Certain

11 May 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Tripadvisor is a goldmine of ghost stories in the form of reviews…. like this one about The Brick Hotel in Newtown, PA by Richard H. in 2015. The hotel is described as “a 15 Charming room Inn that was originally built in 1763. It has maintained its ambiance that sets one back in time to the Victorian era.  Located in the heart of historic Newtown in beautiful Bucks County.” on its website. I had 5 encounters with ghosts there, and I didn’t believe in them until now. In 201, a woman was spotted. In 202, I was awakened by my doorknob jiggling and turning and the door making a sound as if being pushed against. Then I heard some sobbing. it happened a second time at 4 am, without the

Black Eyed Kid Encounter in Mexico City

10 May 2021 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Another encounter from a Reddit user…. Ok guys, this happened to me and my wife 3 years ago around 1 am in this location after exiting a movie. https://goo.gl/maps/ri2ZPd1yVCfZA4bi9 That day we were pretty broke, I just had the money for the movies but not for the parking(here in Mexico all the public parking lots cost), so we decided to park the car behind the shopping mall, on a back alley. When we were out of the movie, the shopping mall access to the back alley was closed, so we had to walk our way up there, when we were about to arrive at the car, a small kid looking around 6-7 age-old pulled my shirt from behind asking for some spare change (this is something really common in Mexico,

Black Eyed Kids on the Doorstep

08 May 2021 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Here is an encounter with the BEK that I discovered on Reddit recently…. This is so funny, I’d never heard of BEK’s before my incident so I come on here to post my story and the first story I see is about a BEK. Wierd. Let me preface this by saying I’m by no means a writer, just a “domestic engineer” living in north Texas. Also, I don’t believe in the paranormal – ghosts, demons, aliens, whatever. However, I did have an event happen to me this Halloween I have to admit has me scratching my head. This is my first post on Reddit, and sorry to say I’d never even heard about it until yesterday. I told my best friend about my incident and she’s an avid reader of

Black Eyed Man on The Powerlines

07 May 2021 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This took place one summer several years ago. We were in the back yard. My mother was sitting in a chair to my left and dad was sitting to the right, I was in the middle with my favorite blanket. It was a mild day, extremely pleasant– until I looked at the power line running across the backyard. Now on this power line was a tall man walking in black. The one thing that makes me remember this is the eyes. They were completely black. That feeling when he looked at me though just terrified me. I blinked and he was gone. Nobody else saw him. It was one of the most terrifying things that has ever happened to me. He was standing still on the powerline, he didn’t move,

The Blues Ghost Music Channeler

07 May 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Brant Buckley and I have been practicing Kriya Yoga and energy healing for over 10 years. I have been aware of the paranormal for some time now. I am a musician too and I did a lot of spiritual channeling and tried bringing Blues ghosts onto the recording of my new song. “Times Strange” is an ode to the Delta Blues Masters in particular Skip James. I have gone to all of the old Blues Graves in the Chicago area: Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, and Willie Dixon. Their ghosts and shadows are my teachers. I wanted to create something very haunting and ghostly in a Bluesy kind of way. The only 2 Blues guys that I am aware of who have done

My Dog Came to Say Goodbye

05 May 2021 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Sparky was a white fluffy American Eskimo dog. He had just turned 14 in January. He was my dad’s dog but when he moved to Europe last year, we felt Sparky was not in good enough health to make the plane ride. The grief of losing his owner was buried so deep in him that it started to make him sick, no matter how much I doted on him. The seven months I lived by myself with Sparky, he was my dog and I know that he loved me just as much as I loved him. We would take nightly walks around by the lake near my house. Whenever I watched TV in the living room he would sit by me, start licking my leg, and after an appropriate amount

Ghosts of Tripadvisor

03 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was just googling around and found some coverage for the FIRST book based on reviews from Tripadvisor. Published in mid-2020, the book is a collection of reviews of haunted experiences of people staying hotels as found in Tripadvisor reviews? Really? Well, that makes me a little angry because, in fact, I published the FIRST book of Tripadvisor reviews called Motel Hell – Strange Reviews of Haunted Hotels back in 2018! Here is a review from that book…. Sylvia Hotel, Vancouver The Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver was built in 1911 and is designated a heritage building. It looks like the sort of place that may be haunted and it does have that reputation. Despite that, I could only find one review in which something paranormal might have occurred there. My
