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

The Dog and the Shadow

01 June 2017 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was dogsitting for a friend in Queens one evening. I had the TV on, popcorn in hand, and the dog, a muscly (but very sweet) pit bull 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 six-feet-tall. Just standing there, looking at the dog. The dog stops, hackles raised, growling at the thing and barking. I gasp, the thing turns to look

Crouching Ghost, Hidden Motive: A True Tale of the Paranormal

24 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

When I was twelve years old, my family lived in an old house in Texas. It was a four-bedroom house. I shared my room with my baby sister and my brother and parents had their own rooms. The last room was used as an office. Every night when everyone went to sleep they would close their doors except for my room. I don’t know why… I just didn’t like my door closed. We had an extremely long dark hallway. One night, when I was the only one awake, I was watching TV as usual when I saw a tall male figure in the corner of my eye peek into my room and when I turned to look he would back up and hide. For some reason, I didn’t really feel

Shadow People In A Time Loop?

16 February 2017 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was fifteen I had a series of strange things happen to me at home. Every night I would read before going to sleep. This one particular night was the same as usual, I’d turn on my radio, pop open a book, and gradually fall asleep. But something was different as I woke up for no reason around three or four in the morning only to see two ‘entities’ quietly standing on the right side of my bed. My radio was still on and my book was lying on my chest. I could see them quite clearly as they seemed to glow. I didn’t feel scared but I felt confused and I was thinking to myself, ‘is this actually happening?’ The beings were blacker than the actual dark but

The Others: Dark Shadows Invaded My House

10 February 2017 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A friend of mine suggested I send this story into your site. I have read many of your stories—but I’ve seen nothing like this. I thought your readers might be interested in my story. I moved to Connecticut with my family around the time that I had started first grade. Soon after I began seeing dark figures in my room at night. You couldn’t really make out any features other than that they had tall, broad shoulders and wide chests which made me think they were adult men. None of them had faces. They would pay no attention to me and walk around the room without interfering in anything I was doing. These events didn’t happen every night, and the nights that they did happen I sometimes would have some

Shadows and Ghosts On Yelp

19 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

Not many encounters being submitted at the moment, so to keep things going, I was looking at Tripadvisor again, but then I found YELP! What a treasure trove of encounters that site is. Check these out… (I have edited these accounts). a full discussion of shadow people, the Old Crone, and other weird experiences…. Chas S. starts a post as follows…. I believe in ghosts. Always have. But never had a personal experience to back up my belief. Until last night…and now I’m beyond freaking out. I got up to go to bathroom at about 2am last night, sort of half asleep, but definitely NOT dreaming or sleepwalking. I did my business, came out of the bathroom, and there was something standing in the corner of the living room, sort

Ghosts In Room 1170!!!!

18 January 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Today, we return to reviews at tripadvisor.com for some more true scary experiences and encounters. It really is quite an unintended source of supernatural material! The Rosen Inn International, Orlando, looks like a normal large hotel. Located conveniently close to Universal Studios, it must do very well. However, apparently, one room has a permanent guest… Do not stay in room 1170. I booked a room at a great price. Our keys did not work the 1st time. Went to front desk to get the keys to work. They did not work. We had security help us to get in. Once we were in all this things started to happen. Knocks on the wall when no one was staying on either side of us. A dark shadow in the corner. Foot

Beware Duplexes in Nevada—You Might Get More Than A Tennant

05 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your Stories

This tale took place in Nevada about twenty years ago. My family moved into an apartment complex. It just seemed like a normal apartment. Nothing special. The first thing that started happening was the intense feeling of being watched. It didn’t matter if it was day or night you were being watched and not only from within the room, it also felt like something was in the room watching me. I tried to ignore it but a few nights later I was walking to the kitchen and saw a huge dark figure run from my mother’s room into my room. It didn’t really run as it didn’t touch the floor. It was also tall enough to touch the ceiling with the top of it’s head. This figure wasn’t really a
