Shadow Witch and A Haunted Neighborhood

15 May 2019 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Old hag, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was born and raised in Tucson,Az. The youngest of four children. When I was about 5 years old we moved into the house I would spend most of my childhood. It was a new neighborhood at the time in the early 80”s on the northwest side of town. The house was a simple 3-bedroom ranch style house. It looked pretty much like all the other houses on the block. I was pretty fortunate that there were a few kids my age to play with. I became good friends with the kid next door. Wesley was his name. He was a year younger but he loved G.I. Joe as much as I did. We played G.I. Joe all the time and when we weren’t playing G.I.Joe we were exploring the

The Love Spell

14 May 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was going through a break up with my daughter’s mother and wanted her back so I investigated a “cast a real love spell “website”. I followed the instructions and decided to light a candle. Well, I laid on my bed and closed my eyes. My vision began to strobe and I got up almost immediately as my phone rang. To my surprise it was my ex and the first words out of her mouth were when I get taxes back where do you want to move? We had a conversation for about an hour and just before hanging up, I blew out the candle and went to say my goodbyes and she had no clue what I was talking about and hung up on me. Well, I went to

We Met the HatMan

13 May 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One morning around 4 am I walked to go meet up with my cousin L. She was a supervisor at Macdonalds who worked the night shift/pre-morning shift. At that point in my life I was 17 and she was 22-years old. I guess you can say we were young and dumb. We smoked a lot of weed and partied a lot. That morning I had rolled a blunt and woke my little cousin up and asked if he wanted to come with me. He was like no I just fell asleep so I let him sleep. The walk was about half a mile from our place. It was still pretty dark by the time I reached my cousins’ work. On our way back from her work, I told her I

The Hatman – I was in Danger

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

I don’t remember my exact age at the time. I think I was 4 maybe, but I remember it so clearly to this day, my encounter with the so called Hat Man. For the record I turn 20 this year. I lived a fairly normal life. Had both parents who loved me above all else. Nothing was out of the ordinary in our family, I wasn’t baptised though, but my grandmother wanted me to be. I was put to bed as usual and fell asleep after my lullaby. They both sang for me and left the nightlight on like usual since I was a little afraid of the dark, which became worse after that night. I woke up at night and felt something was wrong. It felt like I was

I Saw the Hatman

18 March 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I believe I saw the hat man. I was asleep, and for some reason woke up and was staring in front of me. I couldn’t move at all, but I noticed someone standing in front of our door. We have a hall night light outside our room, so it’s not pitch black. My husband keeps his vitamins on his dresser where the door is. So when I first noticed the figure, I thought it was him as he wakes up before me. I started to wake up more (I still couldn’t move) and felt my husband and baby still asleep next to me. Fear started to take over more, and I convinced myself someone had broken in.. I still couldn’t move. The dark figure just stood there staring at me.

Not Scared of the Hatman

15 March 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was between the ages of 2-5 when I encountered a dark shadow figure. He had a round rim hat and long trench coat. It was all black. I couldn’t see its face or eyes and it was just an all-black figure. It never touched me or came close to me, it just stared at from a distance. It lurked and it felt like the nightmare lasted for hours. My mother told me I’d wake up screaming or I’d be sleep but screaming. It haunted me for years and then stopped. As I got older I forgot about those encounters. I definitely had my share of depression, stress, and pain throughout my adult years up until 2018. I experienced this awakening that’s hard to describe. I am definitely a different

Last Night’s Bedroom Visitor

23 January 2019 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I guess it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that after three years of hosting the Weird Darkness podcast that something paranormal or strange would happen to me.  That’s how I’d describe last night.  My bride and I sleep in separate bedrooms because early in our marriage I was working nights, she was working days, and we just could never get used to having someone else in the bed with us.  Add to that my snoring, need for some noise in the background, and only a sheet with a ceiling fan – while Robin needs complete quiet and a dozen blankets, and you’ll understand why we have the sleeping arrangements we have.  But we still love each other immensely and “visit” each other a lot.  It’s only the actual sleeping that

The Dog That Wasn’t There

25 September 2018 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In the English counties of Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and East Anglia they call the legendary ghostly black dog that is said to roam the countryside ‘black shuck’. Succa’ being the old English word for devil or fiend. But in Dorset where I live its better known as the ‘dark nonce’, nonce also being an old English world for a large, pre-neutered hound. But whatever term is used I wanted to tell you about the time i was camping near Raoul Castle in East Dorset and my encounter with a ghostly black dog. I liked camping on my own when i was younger but wouldn’t venture too far from where I lived. I had not long pitched my tent next to what in Medieval times would have been Raoul Moat when I

Shadows on the cliff

21 September 2018 | Shadow people, Your True Encounters

I’m not really sure if this story is a ghost story in the true sense of the word but it’s definitely weird and does involve darkness so it might be what your looking for. I was about 8 or 9 years old when I had the chance to attend a Summer Cubs Camp in England. For those who don’t know Cubs is like Scouts but for younger children. Anyway, at the camp we did the usual things like building camp fires, hiking and generally behaving like hyperactive children do. There was about 10 of us in the troop and we shared a couple of tents between us. We were confined to these tents from about 9pm and as the leaders were still up until much later there was no real

The Ghosts of St. Clair’s Defeat

19 March 2018 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

There are so many reports from my town and that backstory is the basis of the many paranormal incidents to my family and many other people I have known. But the town itself is maybe perhaps the story that I should start with. “Imagine yourself going past a field on a bright, sunny day and you see women and children dressed in period clothing and you don’t know anything about them. Then imagine so many paranormal events going on around you that you can’t seem to avoid, so it becomes normal for you. As the Bible said of Abel, “his blood crieth up from the ground” and this is what you hear from the many voices groaning and talking around you, where you can’t see anyone. People have witnessed ghosts

The Ancients Walk At Night

06 July 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story happened when my friends and I were traveling through the state of Utah. After having a few drinks at a local bar, we went back to the hotel. I looked at my watch and found that it was already ten in the evening. My friends are already asleep on a separate bed and all the lights are off except the one coming from the balcony where the light is still on. I felt restless. As a habit, I would grab my phone and started checking Facebook, scrolling down until I get sleepy and doze off. It wasn’t long before my sleep was interrupted by a movement in the room. I thought it’s one of my friends already awake and preparing for a day of hiking. I found it

The Shadow in the Kitchen

03 July 2017 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Here is another encounter with a shadow person in which it seems the shadow is surprised by a human…. Have I got a story for you! I was dog sitting for a friend in Queens one evening. I had the TV on, popcorn in hand, and the dog, a muscly (but very sweet) pitbull snoozing next to me. The front door was in view in this very small apartment on the third floor, and all doors and windows were locked. Suddenly, the pup perked up and deeply growled. She jumped up and ran around the corner into the kitchen. I follow her. Standing in the middle of the kitchen is a shadow person. I could barely see the counter behind it, and it looked vaguely whispy around the edges. Roughly

The Shadow That Absorbed Light

20 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hi, my name is Shawn, I’m a Christian, born and raised in south eastern Pennsylvania. There have been a few “interesting” events in my life that one could say touch on the unexplained or super natural. Somewhere back around 1996 – 1997 I had two separate events that shook me pretty good, then a third later in life around 2003. The first took place at work, I was a shipper for a small company; my work area was in the basement of an old building. The building was one of those old 3 story industrial brick buildings that you’d have to walk upstairs to get to the first floor. The basement was only 3 feet below ground level and that is where I spent 8 hours of my day, Monday

Scaring the Shadow Man – Are We Their Ghosts?

19 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My family moved into a new house in Nagoya, Japan. The first week was all chaos, as we were still unpacking boxes, rearranging furniture, etc. On the first floor, there was a long hallway that led from the front door to the kitchen. One afternoon, as I was walking down the hallway, I felt a sudden urge to turn and look behind me. I was startled to see a tall man in the shape of a featureless black shadow moving down the hallway close behind me. As he moved along the hallway, he seemed to radiate a small aura of darkness around him, casting a shadow in all directions. blotting out the light on the floor, the walls and the ceiling in a murky circle around him as he moved

The Hatman

07 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One night, when I was about 13 or 14, I was lying in bed in that half-asleep state before you really doze off. I was staring at my wall that faced the front of my house and it was very dark. Suddenly, I saw a figure walk through my wall towards me. I could tell my his shape that he was a man, but I saw no other distinguishable features other than it seemed as if he was wearing a long cloak and a flat rimmed hat. I was kind of frozen as I watched him move closer. He came right next to me, bent down and kissed the top of my head and it felt like ice had touched me. That snapped me out of my stupor and I
