Our Haunted Home

20 January 2023 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My mom grew up in a pretty bad neighborhood and in the house she grew up in there where TOOONS of things that happened.  The very first night she slept at the house, she woke up with a horrible stomach ache and after a trip to the bathroom, she laid down back to sleep, she saw a black and white face with an evil smile starring at her. When her and my aunts and uncles were younger, there old dog, Buster, was their protection and comfort. The spirits saw that and they would lead Buster to another room and he would just come back with scratches and bruises all over the poor thing. Every single night at exactly 5 min before midnight, he would go over to this one window

The Ghost in my Bed

17 January 2023 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I might’ve been 4 or 5 years old when I woke up suddenly in the middle of the night while I was sleeping next to my mom. I usually wake up when I had nightmares as a kid. Oddly enough, I don’t remember having a nightmare that night—I literally just woke up for no reason, or so I thought. Now pretty much awake, I stared at the ceiling for a while before I sat up in bed and had an urge to check my pillow behind me. So I did and ooooooooh boy, I wasn’t expecting to see what I saw that night. There was a man lying on my pillow as if I was sitting on top of him. His face was so weird cos it looked like he

The Thing Under the Bed

16 January 2023 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was late at night and I was laying down to try and sleep. I had LED lights up on my wall that I was facing. — I need to add that I had my LED lights taped to the wall because they were always falling. So I do know what them just falling looks like.  I was watching the LED lights when out of nowhere I watched them get literally RIPPED off of my wall. I was scared and tired though so I just closed my eyes and forced myself to sleep. Later that night I woke up to my blanket half way under my bed. I didn’t think anything of it at first because I sleep at the edge of my bed and woke up daily to my

The Little Girl Ghost

13 January 2023 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened when I was 11. I was staying at my dads house during the summer. It was about 4:30am so everyone else in the house was asleep. I needed to use the bathroom but the bathroom was at the end of a really scary dark hall so I didn’t want to. I eventually got up though and as I was using the bathroom someone suddenly knocked (3 times might I add) on the bathroom door; then a few seconds later, I heard a little girls voice — probably around 3-4 years old — singing some sort of lullaby on the other side of the door. I was terrified because no one else was awake. I finished using the bathroom and then ran back to the room. I felt like

The Girl in the Wardrobe

12 January 2023 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We (my fiancé, and our 7 year old daughter) stayed in Rydges Hobart in Jan 2004.  It was our first night in Tasmania, and we had absolutely no idea that there were stories of Rydges being haunted. The morning after our first nights stay, our daughter came into our room, and I asked how she slept and she said ‘great’. She then went on to say ‘but mum, you know how when you stare at things long enough, you start to see funny things’, I said ‘no, but what did you see’.  She went on to say: “…well, I was looking at the wardrobe in my room, and this little girl walked out of it.  She was wearing a grey dress, had blonde hair with a spikey fringe; but she

The entity I Share my Home With

04 January 2023 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Four years ago I was 22. I do a lot of various sports and used to switch from training for each one at different times so I was 275 and bulking to power lift at the time. The day was warm and largely uneventful. I was off work and had spent the day doing several work outs and eating in order to get in form. But now, my body was sore and I had done everything for the day so I was off to play Skyrim. I played from roughly 09:30 Pm to 10:30 Pm when I get a knock on my door. When I opened the door nobody was there. I’m not jumpy but something spooked me when I closed the door. I couldn’t get comfortable and I had

Old Monastery Pool is Cursed

03 January 2023 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

There is a place near my village that I am too afraid to visit at night. They say Old Monastery Pool is haunted and that this is the story which proves it. Just after the Second World War and with rationing still firmly in place, trading any extra food you grew or caught was near necessity. A youth in my tiny Nottinghamshire village known only as Young Charlie understood this well. Back in those days Young Charlie could often be found in the Burrell Arms (I actually live there now) trading the trout and eels he’d plucked from local streams for ration stamps. ‘I s’pose you know about Old Monastery Pool,’ one patron asked, as he exchanged a few stamps for one of Charlie’s slender trout. Charlie shook his head. ‘Never heard

The Haunted Dresser

25 December 2022 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One of my first ghost experience was when I was about 9-11 years old. A relative of ours has passed away, after she passed, her family had given me a dresser of hers, (she kept her stuff in immaculate condition). Well, when I was sleeping, I saw her standing at the foot of my bed. The next morning, I told my mom, she didn’t say too much about it then. But then the next night, she was there again, I told my mom about her again the next day, she told me the only way to find out if something is real or not is to touch it. So, this is now the third night I see her standing at the foot of my bed, so I sit up so

The Heysham Chronicle

24 December 2022 | Your Stories

We don’t usually publish fiction here but I will make an exception this once for this story by Mike Ricket and originally published here. By Mike Rickett Anthony Slim has always had a liking for local museums. They are usually quirky and full of curiosities that you would not find in the big city museums. He is wandering around a small museum in just three rooms in the village of Heysham on the Lancashire coast, probably best known for its port offering sailings to Ireland and the Isle of Mann. His visit is entirely unplanned. It is December and Hope University in Liverpool, where he is a senior lecturer in the Arts Faculty, is winding down for the Christmas break. He has a free day and the prospect of a

Ghost Girl

23 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I grew up in an area that used to be a Pottawatomie Sioux and French fur trading village. This history is relevant. Outside of town, just down the road from my grandma’s house, was a clearing in the woods, on top of a hill, right near a spring. When I was a kid, my dad chose to situate a single-story ranch-style prefab house in that clearing, and we moved into it when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. The weirdness started right away. Within a few days of moving in, when we were all watching a movie in the living room, we heard a loud BANG like a gunshot in the kitchen. When we went to see if something had fallen over, though, nothing was out of place.

Missing Xmas Decorations

22 December 2022 | Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A relative suffered an untimely death that shook our whole family to the core. Their passing was in early December many years ago and our family, grief-stricken, endeavoured to decorate our tree. The box of decorations was kept in a space under the stairs in our basement. That year, the box was nowhere to be found. Our family went out and bought entirely new tree decorations. We got through the holidays, into the new year and took the tree down. As we went to place the new decorations in the usual space…there was the old box we’d been looking for. And it was really one of three boxes under there.   Submitted by  t3eee

An ex-friend of mine and I had one of those missing item experiences – his car keys (which were kept on the kitchen counter) vanished one morning before we left for work. We looked EVERYWHERE in the apartment. Scoured the living room, the kitchen, his bedroom, we even checked the driveway, but no keys! So he called the boss and told her that we weren’t going to be able to make it in to work because his keys were missing, and then we decided to take a short walk down the street to the convenience store to de-stress and figure out what to do if we couldn’t relocate the car keys. As soon as we got home and walked back in the front door, THERE WERE HIS KEYS, sitting on

My Brother

19 December 2022 | Phone Calls from the dead, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Before I start, I want to say that I am quite a spiritual person, but I always try to find the logic in things like this. My brother died nearly 2 years ago, and for months after his death he was quite ‘active’… For example, multiple people have claimed to have received phone calls from him. I witnessed one of them. My mother picked up the phone, apprehensive because it was from a “no called Id” number, and immediately we both recognised his voice.  We were quite shocked and he said “goodbye”. (Bear in mind my brother had a very very distinctive voice). When my brother was alive, he loved to paint.  After his death, my sister and I both took one painting from his house. The painting that my

The Haunted School

17 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A friend of mine runs a school for pre-school kids. It is located in a large 1920’s building just outside the city center that was built to strict standards of opulence by a wealthy jewish family.  Unfortunately, when the Nazi’s took over in this part of the world, the family were taken from their home and shipped off to concentration camps where apparently they unfortunately died. Several teachers at the school have reported strange happenings. One, took her boyfriend there returning home from a night out when it was very late with the intention of sleeping on the floor. She said that after about 30 minutes, someone switched the hall light on yet the building was empty. This worried them a bit but they switched off the light and settled

We Spent 3 Nights in a Haunted Hotel Room

15 December 2022 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we spent the weekend in a hotel room considered by many to be the most haunted hotel room in the country. The room is in the Marshall House in Savannah, Georgia — ranked as the most Haunted City in the USA, and the Marshall House as Savannah’s most haunted hotel. It’s room 414. And we stayed there for three nights. I did not plan on staying in room 414. Well, I sort of planned, but that was not the specific plan. Here’s how it happened. It was our 13th anniversary. We both love Savannah. Its historic district is beautiful and full of history. I love history, and she loves this kinda stuff… I mean, stuff like “ghosts”. And it was our 13th. It just made sense
