The Hat Man on the Doorstep

01 November 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When my husband was three, he and his family lived in base housing at Chess Air Force Base in Abilene’ Texas. The kitchen door to the backyard had glass in the upper half. He was in the kitchen and saw a tall man in black with a hat on standing at the back door. His father wasn’t home and his mother was putting his baby brother to bed. As my husband watched the backdoor opened by itself and he started floating across the kitchen towards the backdoor. His mother came in the kitchen and grabbed him. She ran with him into his brother’s room where they stayed until his dad came home. His dad didn’t believe them and his mom wouldn’t talk about it.   Submitted by Brenda Victor to

Repercussion of using a Ouija Board

31 October 2019 | ouiji boards, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

First off, I have been investigating the paranormal for 49 years. Having seen so much in this time, I have investigated some of the most haunted places here in Indiana. One place that stands out in investigating Central State Mental Asylum in Indianapolis, Indiana. Some of the best evidence was gathered there. Knowing the history of Central State made me want to investigate it even more. The story I am about to tell you is true and I will state my reputation on it. Back in 2003, my late wife bought my daughter a Ouija Board. I immediately told her to get rid of it. She asked me why and I told her, these devices can cause harm. She laughed it off and said, “Everything will be fine.” I said,

I work as a nurse at Guys hospital in London.  A few years ago I was working on night shift. I saw one of my colleagues enter the charge nurse office in the morning around 7am. She did not say hello or wave to me. She did not come to the handover in the morning and I assumed she was on a management day. I thought no more about it. That night, I was on night shift again and this nurse phoned the ward asking for her duty rota.I asked why she had not got it that day as I had seen her going into the office in the morning. This nurse swore to me she had not been at work that day. That office was only used by senior

The Creature in the Woods

29 October 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

I was 6 when this happened so I don’t remember this that much… but here goes. This is what I do remember of that day. It was a dark night and a  full moon, and I was playing with some of my cousins. It was very boring and dumb to us that we had to sleep so… we stayed up. I told my cousins about many things that were very weird to me but I don’t remember the whole thing. All I do remember, is that I think that I told them about how I woke up one night and saw a figure out my hallway (with the kitchen on the right and the bathroom light on cracked for me in the hallway when I slept). I woke up for

House on the Hill

28 October 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 1986 I was visiting my mother, my older sister and my new step father in Cicero, Indiana it was in the country with nothing but corn fields for miles with one small town that contained a gas station, Dairy Queen, small grocery store and video store. I lived in San Antonio, Texas with my father, so this being out in the country like this was new to me. This would be the first and only time I visited at that home. The home in Cicero was big and on a lot of acres, there was a lot of room to roam, we had horses, and a man made pond. One morning I remember being in the kitchen and my sister and I over heard my mother and step father

Playing with the Devil

25 October 2019 | Demons, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was very young, very lost, confused and didn’t have a lot of support growing up. I was an only child and was passed around from family member to family member. Not saying I was the perfect child. I just didn’t have the best people to guide me. I was raised in the church, I mean 6 days a week and some weekends always in church. I didn’t want church, I didn’t want to be with all these different family members. I wanted my mother. Who for some reason or another was never around. I started acting out in school. Stealing, fighting etc. Finally my mother decided to send me to my aunts house. As if that wasn’t enough to add on to the stress of a teenager but she

Coughing Fit

21 October 2019 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was at around 3:30 to 3:45 am when I was half asleep (I had been on my computer for hours and had only got off of it at around 3 am) when I felt something pull at my legs. First, slowly, then more violently. I suddenly sat bolt upright and started choking aggressively. It was so bad that my mother had to come in to check if I was alright. I got my breath back after a few minutes, and when I was sure that I was okay, we went back to bed, and I slept downstairs. when we got up for breakfast the next morning, I was talking to mum at the breakfast table. she said that she had no memory of my coughing fit, but had a

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

Zombie Paralysis

16 October 2019 | Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One night, while sleeping with my now ex-wife, I felt the end of the bed begin to lean down. As if one of the dogs were attempting to climb up onto the bed. What I thought was a dog became quickly known as something much more. The shear weight that I could feel in the bed must have been closer to my weight or more. I attempted to open my eyes but was only able to look at the ceiling. The room was dimly lit but I knew my wife had been reading in bed. So, I didn’t think much of it. As I became more curious as to what was at the end of the bed, I tried to lift my head but to no avail. I was stuck!

Dogs, They Know Evil.

15 October 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve always felt like I’ve been followed by darkness…this is simply, one of many, many things I’ve experienced. I grew up in a very “disturbed” neighborhood. Always neighborly drama, fights, and even death. The cops always showed up in our street due to the amount of issues. The neighborhood wasn’t very safe, so every house had gates and iron surrounding the windows, doors, and garages. Honestly, most of everybody in the neighborhood had dogs, large dogs to ensure protection. So, it wasn’t unusual for us to hear barking all day long. We were used to it. My family and I had a dog as well, a mutt mixed with German shepherd and some other breed that I didn’t know of. He was very protective of us and he was a

The Demon Dog

14 October 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened years ago. My best friend and I were driving around the small town we lived in. Me in the passenger seat and him driving. We would do this all the time. When we were bored or just didn’t want to be at home. We would “cruise” around and tell jokes, parody songs we loved, and tell each other ghost stories. That night was jokes and laughing. We had already been driving around for an hour or so that night and it was near midnight. We had turned down main street heading west after just leaving the only convenience store in town. My best friend was Jimmy. Crazy and side splittingly funny 99% of the time. No different that night. We had gone a block down main and he
