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

A Haunted Mirror?

23 February 2021 | Audible Activity, Bizarre, Evidence?, Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Quite a scary story in the Daily Express that I feel is worth picking up on. It involves a haunted mirror purchased from an antique shop. Its new owner is a UK Medium and he was able to capture a video with some rather creepy conversations with what he says is the ghost of a girl that haunts the mirror. The video may be seen here. The medium claims he started to hear unexplained rattling sounds (in fact, the video does include the sound at the beginning), before making contact with the spirit. The article states…. On the video he can be heard telling the ghost this is their chance to communicate, and he is convinced you can faintly hear the ghost replying, “you help me”. He also believes he

The Ouija Board

22 February 2021 | Ouija, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Growing up, my mother and her friends would often play the ouija board. I grew used to watching them play on the hot summer days when we kids were locked outside. However, one day, much to my surprise, my mother let me join in. The next day my girl scout troop was going to Washington D.C. and my entire family was going. Well,  when we did the ouija board, it began warning us about the trip. It said that something horrible was going to happen and that we shouldn’t go. We ignored the warning and the next morning began experiencing strange things. I unplugged my night light and an hour later it was plugged back in. My parents claimed that I was lying when I said I had unplugged it.

My Psychic Friend

15 February 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I and my Best friend Beth were teenagers, we had a very tight group of friends. We spent every free moment with them getting into harmless mischief and gaming and going to renaissance festivals. They became our surrogate family. No one was a misfit or ever left out. Well while hanging with this group I met Lenny. He was blonde-haired and blue-eyed and his hair was long and he would braid it and he wore glasses and to my teenage eyes, he was sheer perfection. Beth had grown up with him and he was her brother from another mother so thankfully she didn’t look at him the way I did. I was smitten. Well, it didn’t take too long for him to start talking to me and I was

The Point Lookout Lighthouse and the HatMan

11 February 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 2006, October. In that spooky and also festive month, the 13th also happened to land on a Friday. Taking advantage of this renowned date, I had convinced a buddy of mine, Tim, along with my girlfriend, Ashley, and her little sister, Alisha, to venture down to the State Park and meander around the lighthouse, the civil war Union fort, and POW camp. Besides 12yr old Alisha, the rest of us had graduated high school together in 2004. On the way to the lighthouse, I told stories of phantom civil war soldiers seen crossing the road and a Lady in Black that would approach visitors asking for help in locating a burial stone before vanishing, firmly setting the mood for a creepy visit. We entered the parking area a

The Skin walker

09 February 2021 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My brother and I are fans of the urban fiction books “The Dresden Files”. He was discussing it at work one day and mentioned the Naagloshii (skinwalker) monster in the book. This Navajo gal there freaked out when he said the word Naagloshii. He said it really scared her, and she yelled not to say that name. A little later while he was alone, she came to him to apologize for her freaking out at what he said. She explained that by saying the name you might draw its attention and that it is a big taboo in the Navajo culture. She then whispered the correct pronunciation and full name to him and told him why it is so scary for her. She said when she was younger she was

The Fire Next Door

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

I was very small when this happened. Though at the time, I did not understand why the things I remember happening took place. It was quite an amazing revelation to find out the whole story when I was old enough that it would not scare me. I remember one day as my family was driving toward home on our busy street, that we could see a lot of flashing lights. I remember my mom and dad’s concern as we got closer, because of all the fire trucks and emergency vehicles in front of our home. Luckily it was not our place, but our neighbors home that had caught fire. Being so young I really didn’t realize the gravity of what had happened. I remember how charred furnishings and a big

Would You Buy A House Here?

01 February 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Apparently, Barnes Hospital in Cheadle, near Manchester, has been transformed into flats ….. Just one problem. The place is reputed to be haunted! An abandoned hospital that while it was being built uncovered pieces of christian crosses from a possible graveyard. Built in the 1870’s it was meant for the growing numbers of factory workers in and around Manchester. During WW2, it took care of wounded and dying soldiers. The hospital was closed in 1999. It has since topped the list of ‘15 creepiest abandoned places in Britain’ and was the set for Let Sleeping Corpses Lie a 1970s horror movie. Paranormal activity has often been reported at the site. Nurses who felt they were being watched and the ghosts of nurses still tending to patients. Those who have investigated the hospital
