Beware of Strangers

19 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One afternoon in 2003, my 8 years old daughter was playing with her dolls out on our front porch when suddenly a young girl around the age of 15 years old was standing in front of her. My daughter looked up asked her what she wanted and the girl replied, “I want you to come with me to a place where it is much more fun than here.” Then my daughter Denielle realized she was a stranger and had no way of getting to our front porch because she would need to go through the front gate which is always locked for security reasons. Then she looked at the girl’s feet and saw that she was floating about 6 inches from the ground. Scared, she said no and stood up

The Haunted Catacombs below Jihlava

16 April 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

The catacombs beneath Jihlava in the Czech Republic are mysterious. They are located beneath the entire city and multiple levels and no one knows exactly why they exist! People have reported that in one part of these tunnels – the corridor of Svitivka – they have seen people with long necks and strange heads, and have heard noises or whispers. The corridor glows with a strange greenish light when unlit. This glow apparently comes from a coating on the sides of the tunnel that was put there by the Nazis – tho no one really knows why. In fact, with an interest in the occult, the Nazis seemed very interested in the tunnel and it is said that Hitler himself believed it the entrance to another dimension.

Who Was The Old Man in my Bedroom?

22 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The strangest thing that happened to me was when I was growing up in Tennessee. My mother was ill and out of work and we lived in a very old house near Knoxville. We all slept in the same bedroom, my mother, my younger sister, and I. This arrangement was done in order to close off the other rooms for better heating. My story takes place late one night. We had gone to bed early and I had been sleeping soundly until I suddenly woke up for no reason, and had a feeling that someone was watching me. I turned over to look toward my mother, who was asleep in the bed with my younger sister. I then noticed something that really terrified me. Sitting in an old chair, between

What Happened to the Ouija Board?

16 March 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One of the students took out the board and said “Who wants to play?” Mostly, the group was keen but one of them shook their heads. He wasn’t interested. As the group began to use the board tough, they persuaded him to give it a try. He sat. “Prove this is real!” he said as the lights went out and the fire alarm started. They all jumped followed by giggles at the coincidence. They all left the room and its owner locked it after them. Out they went to the assembly point. 45 minutes later, the alarm was declared false and everyone was let back into the hall of residence. The room owner unlocked the door and they all walked in. The problem was that the Ouija board was gone.

I don’t usually do this but I am researching a new book on Ouija boards… So, if anyone has a story or two to tell about their experiences with the board, would you be so kind as to submit it below? If I don’t include it in the book, it will appear on this site and I may also read it for the new podcast series. Thanks! G. Michael Vasey

The Scratching Box

10 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1963, I took a trip to Weatherford, Texas, out in the country to spend some time at my Aunt Jay (Julia) and Uncle Guy’s house – the Rock House we called it because it was made entirely out of multicolored stone. Uncle Guy built it himself as a wedding gift to his bride, Jay. Soon after, a son Joe was born, then a girl, Ann. When the kids grew up, The son Joe married a girl with the same name as his sister – Ann, when she was only 17yrs old. I was 14 and attended the wedding. On this particular trip, I was 18 yrs old and Joe’s Anne, 21. She was staying at the Rock House visiting her in-laws while Joe was out of town. We

Apparition on the Road

09 March 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was driving down a road late one night in the NE of England. It was pitch black and that kind of road that has high hedges on either side. The road was very bendy as well and the full-beam headlights constantly picked out trees and other items that seemed to jump out at me. I must admit, I was getting pretty nervous driving alone there. As I went around one bend, the headlights shone back of what seemed to be a patch of mist. I thought at first, this was the beginnings of a patchy mist developing and slowed down even more to compensate. As I drove on though, I met no more misty patches until about 1 mile further up the road where passing through a small wooded

The Black Eyed Stalker

05 March 2021 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Working the night shift for a data center in Ohio, a man had a creepy exchange and posted his tale anonymously as Noetic. It was around 5 am on July 31, 2010. Noetic was taking a smoke break outside when he noticed two teenage boys standing motionlessly and staring at him from across the street. Immediately feeling unnerved, he snubbed out his smoke and went back inside. No more than ten minutes later, the intercom buzzed. Noetic checked the monitors and there they were. The two boys had made their way over to his building and were now staring into the surveillance camera like they could see him through it. Through the speaker, he asked what they wanted. They said nothing but motioned for him to come outside. He hit

Boletice Cemetery, Czechia

04 March 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Boletice cemetery is the site of an interesting tale regarding two cantankerous old souls who argued even after death. Dead and buried in the cemetery, the pair were heard to continue cursing and arguing so loudly that nearby homes had trouble sleeping. Eventually, the Priest sought advice on how to handle the phenomenon from Rome and was told to place the crosses on both graves back to back to each other. After this was done, peace finally reigned in the cemetery. G Michael Vasey

A Final Goodbye?

02 March 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This incident took place in Austin, Texas on August 19, 1995, between 11:30 pm and Midnight. A friend of mine named Kevin had been going through some bad times of late. He had been suffering from partial paralysis from an injury he had sustained years ago in a diving accident. His business was failing, his bank account was dwindling and since he had lost his lease with the apartment he lived in, he had to live with a friend until he could get back on his feet. As sometimes happens in all of us, Kevin lost hope and felt that there was no way out and so, committed suicide on August 17th. I was told about this the next day by a mutual friend of ours. A bunch of us got

The Shadow

24 February 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have just moved into a new house and not all the furniture was in so I was sleeping on the floor. I couldn’t sleep because you know those weird feelings you get when you move into a house?  I looked at the bathroom and all I saw was a tall black figure! I was freaked out so bad I almost had a heart attack, but no one else saw it, so I was like what was that? It was really scary but that’s all I can really remember.   Submitted to Weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too by Elizabeth Quick
