The Night Visitor

15 April 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The day after I had a heated argument with dad (I lived with dad after mum passed away), he packed his bag and walked out. I didn’t know where he went to. For more than 3 months, I was alone in the house with my cats and dogs as my companions. I remember it was around 10pm, a month after dad left, I heard heavy footsteps walking up the stairs. I looked out of my bedroom window which facing the front of the house but I couldn’t see anything; it was pitch black. Then I heard the creaking sound of the front door slowly opened. My dogs (usually pretty vocal when strangers come near my dad’s house) didn’t even make a noise so I was sure it was either my

The Breathing Sounds from the Closet

14 April 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My parents lived in this house when I was growing up until 2005. The master bedroom had one of those closets with 2 sliding doors. My mom used to tell my Dad she could hear someone breathing in there, almost panting. My dad is a major non-believer in this stuff even when it’s real. For instance, we kept hearing something up in the attic and finally, he went up there to prove to us there wasn’t anything and it was a blackbird that got stuck up there somehow. Anyway, for a while, I had to live with them after my divorce. They had gone up to their cottage up on Lake Huron for the weekend, and Mom was like you can sleep in our bed while we are gone. I

Shadow Parishioners at St. Andrews

09 April 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in August of 2018, I started a second job at the church I attend. It was a weekend gig cleaning the school and the church. It started off pretty easy. I would come in early on Saturday morning in order to beat everyone there so I could clean without interference and then come in Sunday afternoon. One Sunday afternoon, while cleaning the classrooms, I started hearing what sounded like a large crowd in the hallway. I looked out and saw no one. There were a couple teachers getting stuff ready for the next day, but nothing that justified the noise. This went on and off for the rest of the shift. I got a little spooked and I told my wife about it. She thought that perhaps I was

Ouija Nightmare

08 April 2020 | Haunted houses, ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

With an absence of stories at the moment, I have been trawling Reddit looking for some good ones to post here. And I found this…. I think its very creepy and reminds me of why I do not like Ouija boards…. Back in 2013, my friends and I were bored one night and decided to make an ouija board. Always a good idea, right? Well my best friend lives way out in the country about a 45 minute drive from the closest store, so there wasn’t much to do. We had spent the day hanging out watching movies, which we eventually got bored of. It was me, my best friend A, her boyfriend M, and his best friend B. I forget who’s idea it was to make the ouija board,

The Alarm Clock

07 April 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Strange things happened in the old Victorian era house I grew up in. There was an often cold spot about a third of the way up the stairs. Strange noises could be heard from time to time. Lights and shadows could play tricks on you. Things would move; not float, but often an item would not be found where it was set down just moments before. Other things, too, but I won’t go into everything. When I was a teen there was this one time when I was home alone. I heard the alarm clock in my parents’ bedroom go off in the middle of the day, which was odd. I got up off the couch and began ascending the stairs. About half way up, the alarm stopped. I thought

Lost Time

03 April 2020 | Time warp, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Two friends and I (11F at the time) were playing outside at a park near Friend 1’s house. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we had been playing at the park for around an hour. I had just asked Friend 1 what time it was, and her watch said it was 1:26 pm. I had to go to church with my family at 4:00 pm, and I did not want to make my mom late because I was out playing and lost track of time. Next to the park was a big hill, and the top of the hill plateaued into a wooded area where we would run, collect flowers, etc. Friend 2 started to run up the hill, calling for a race to the top. Friend 1 and

Sharing my bed with something undead?

02 April 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was a December night and I couldn’t fall asleep. I have a younger sister who was already fast asleep in the other room. I felt cold hands tickle my feet. I said, “Angela!” (thinking it was my sister). I put my feet quickly under the covers and turned over, not thinking anything about it. Moments later, I felt something get into bed with me and they put their hand over my hand. I also felt their stomach going up and down against my back. When I turned over to see what my sister was doing up, nothing was there. I freaked out and screamed. I woke up my whole family. My uncle came in my room and asked me what’s the matter and I told him what happened. I

Balan-Balan

19 March 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

‘Balan-balan’ as it is known in Sabah (North Borneo) but also known by different names in Southeast Asian countries. It is a nocturnal vampire-like entity that feeds on new mothers’ blood, their babies or someone who is gravely ill. One must remember that most folklore or legends in these countries are handed down by word of mouth from way back when so the stories about how balan-balan feeds on its victims and how it came to exist vary from country to country in Southeast Asia. What I was told, the evil entity came to exist because of a woman who dabbled in black magic. So the story goes, she was startled by someone who walked into her house and saw her perform the ritual by submerging her body in water.

Bobohizan (Priestess)

17 March 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

(Bobohizan is a female spiritual leader, mediator, medium, advisor and a doctor to cure illnesses in the Kadazan community). My late maternal grand dad had a relative who was a bobohizan (unfortunately I don’t remember her name or her age); we used to call her nenek bobohizan (nenek means grandma). As a spiritual leader, she held a very important role in the village. Often people would come to her house seeking help to cure illness, to seek advise or as a medium between the living and the dead. She lived in a small house surrounded by thick bushes and the only way to get to her house was through the cemetery. She walked with a walking stick and her dog accompanied her wherever she went. Nenek bobohizan came to visit

Dog Sitting Nightmare

16 March 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My story is about multiple paranormal incidents that occurred in a house where I dog-sit. So, I began dog/house sitting about 2 years ago and it is pretty great. I have lived in an apartment my entire life, so I was excited when I got to stay in a huge house all by myself, plus the money was amazing. The owner of the house, let’s call her B, has seen me grow up and has always been a kind and welcoming person who has shown us nothing but respect. B’s house was the first one I house-sat at and it was great, at first. The first time I house-sat, I had to stay there for about 2 weeks which wasn’t bad. After the 3rd time I house-sat, I began to

The Haunted Students Union

09 March 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was in college, I had got a job working as an administrator of the Student Union at my school. Being that I am an administrator I would have to close the building. This building is on a campus of the oldest school in the state. It was used to draft soldiers for the Union army back in the Civil War. There were stories about people seeing ghostly figures walking up and down the hallway of the rooms on the top floor of the building. And, some other eerie things that would occur. It came down to the point that my boss would use the budget for our division to replace all of the locks. One day I was in the office on my laptop when a man and

Calling a Ghost

04 March 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

As a child, I lived in an historical neighborhood that was built in the early 1900s for employees working for a nitrogen company about 15-20 miles away. Nothing particularly scary or ominous about the house, never had strange experiences except for one night. We were in the process of painting my room, so my bed was in the middle and no other furniture save my nightstand. It’s the middle of summer, I live in southern Arizona and it’s very hot and most homes have swamp coolers (evaporative cooling), so I only have a sheet for covering. I’m lying on my back, arms outside of the sheet by my sides. I suffer from insomnia, so I was still wide awake and suddenly feel a warmth grow by my shoulder. I can

It Visits Me!

03 March 2020 | Audible Activity, precognition, Precognition, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is all based on Very true and very real experiences. I have been visited by an entity since I was 2, almost 3 years old. I am currently 29 years old, but I can still remember most things that happened to me from a very early age. I have fond memories of year 2 in my life, and memories not so great. That’s when I saw it for the very first time. I know we were living in a condo-style apartment in a high-rise building right on the beach front of Durban, South Africa. I complained to my mother that I really wasn’t feeling well and I cried. My mother (getting really impatient with me because she was rather busy and also had my whining 4 year old sister)

You call them Vampires, I call them Pontianaks

02 March 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

If you ask anyone what a vampire looks like, I’m pretty sure they will tell you. They probably saw one in a movie, stories they heard as a child or they have seen it for themselves. As far as I know, vampires only exist in the western world because I’ve heard about them and watched movies about vampires. I’ve always wondered if vampires and ‘pontianak’ are the same. All I know is they’re blood sucking, evil ghosts! In some parts of South East Asia, people believe that a woman who dies whilst giving birth will come back as a pontianak (perempuan mati beranak in Malay language meaning a woman who died giving birth) and a pontianak isn’t any ghost you would like to mess with. Some people say if you
