Protected From Beyond The Grave?

17 October 2016 | Your Stories

This story takes place a few years ago. I was eight years old and I was scared of the dark. I always told my parents that I could hear voices in the dark. I would scream until they left the light on all night. The voices were not necessarily evil, but they scared me. Even with the light on in the middle of the night I would wake up and hear “whispers” as I would call them when asking my mom. She figured they were just my overactive imagination. One morning around Christmas, I awoke and felt the need to use the bathroom. I walked out from the door and distinctly heard a voice say “Look!” and saw, a red light, almost like a spotlight, flashing at the bottom of

Evil Grandma in my Closet

14 October 2016 | Doppelgangers, Your Stories

This chilling story happened when I was around fifteen years old. My grandmother would spend a lot of time in my room trying to keep it tidy. She was a clean freak. One day I came home and found her staring into my closet. She wasn’t moving at all. It was like she was suspended in the middle of cleaning the closet. I asked her if she was okay but she totally ignored me. My eighty-five-year-old grandmother just continued to stare into the closet. Suddenly, she turned her head slowly toward me and gave me the coldest of stares. She had the evilest eyes I had ever seen! A chill ran up and down my spine. Those were not my grandma’s eyes, I thought. Then she looked away from me

Is My House Evil?

13 October 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

This past summer, my husband and I were attending a baby shower for our new baby to be. We were staying at my parents’ house. There are three entities that reside in my parent’s house. This incident took place with an older male spirit who is rarely seen, but often felt. The feeling you get from him is one of fear. Even as a child I remember being afraid of this spirit. We were sleeping in the spare room that is in my parent’s basement and I could feel him staring at us from the corner of the room while we were sleeping. I had to lay facing towards the wall because I could not turn my back on him; We got little sleep while we were there. I would

The Civil War Continues in the South: A Confederate Ghost Sighting

12 October 2016 | Time warp, Your Stories

Another interesting encounter with a Civil War soldier…… It was the fall of 1978; I was driving in the northern part of Virginia and I was in a very remote area where the hills rolled gently and there were no homes, barns, fences, riding trails or another motorist. I was really enjoying the scenery when I drove around a curve and there on the left side of the road, about half a mile ahead, was a horse with a rider. As I drove closer to the horse and rider, I noticed what the man was wearing; a full Confederate uniform with sleeve markings indicating a high rank officer. His uniform consisted of the grey in color pants, jacket, and full belt dressing with sword, a side arm, black hat, riding

The Shadow At The Bottom of my Bed

11 October 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

In 1998, I was 14 and was spending the summer with a friend and her family in Idaho. At first, everything was perfect and I was very happy sleeping alone in my own room on the third floor. Five nights into my stay though, I started to wake up every night. Standing in front of me, at the foot of my bed, stood a man looking down at me. I couldn’t really see anything. All I saw was a bright white outline and it looked like he had a hat on his head. He would just stand there and stare at me. I would just turn around and stare at the wall and hope he would disappear. I never turned around to see if he had gone away. Eventually I

The Woman in the Waiting Room.

10 October 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

In November 2011, I took my brother, Greg, to the ER. I was directed to the waiting room while they took an initial look at him. It was very early in the morning, around two or so, and unsurprisingly, no one else was in the waiting room. So I had a seat to wait on until I could go back. I had been sitting for a while when a young woman came in and sat down near me. We smiled at each other and started talking. After a while, a nurse came by, looked over at us and stopped. Looking at me the nurse asked if there was something wrong. I answered, “No, we are just talking” The nurse looked at me as if I was crazy. Then she said

A Paranormal Intruder Drives A Family From Their Home

07 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Your Stories

One night, when I was twelve-years old, I had left my bedroom window open all night as our house didn’t have any kind of air conditioning and it was very warm. At around two in the morning, I heard a very loud husky voice speak to me. I looked out of the window, but saw absolutely nobody out there. I remember thinking that I was just dreaming. The next day, I woke up very late in the afternoon and in the hospital. My parents said that they had found me unconscious outside on the lawn at 4am in the morning after hearing a loud bang. The bang they’d heard was me jumping off the shed. The funny thing is, is that there is no way to get on the roof

Ghosts of the Living – My Living Friend Haunts My Bedsit!

06 October 2016 | Your Stories

I used to live in a bedsit that a friend had lived in a couple of years earlier. She had moved to another city. She was really into her music, dancing and playing guitar. One night I brought a guy I’d just met back to the bedsit. In the morning he told me he’d woken up and seen a woman dancing through the room. He said she had long blonde hair but with one side of her head shaved. He told me that she had gone next door. This described my friend perfectly and since her best friend used to live next door, it also fit that she would be heading next door. I rang her to make sure that she was okay. She was fine but just a little

The Ghostly Bus Traveler

05 October 2016 | Your Stories

Many years ago, when I still lived with my parents in Ohio, I worked a twenty-minute or so bus ride away in a neighboring town. Coming home one evening on a really miserable, cold and raining winter night, the bus gradually emptied as the passengers got off at each stop. Although my stop certainly wasn’t at the end of the ride, by the time I pressed the bell and got up and stood by the driver, I noticed the bus was completely empty. Nobody hiding or lying down in the seats. I had passed them all as I came down the bus. I stood swaying, holding onto the pole and looking back down the empty bus, chatting to the driver. I was the last one to get off. The bus

The Nursing Home From Hell?

03 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories

About four years ago, I was working at a nursing home. I worked night shift with three to four other people. Each night we were assigned a hall on which we did rounds every two hours and answered call lights as needed. In our down time between rounds, we usually would sit in the dining hall, which was located right in the middle. For the first couple of months I worked there… nothing happened. I was a bit disappointed and said so one night between rounds. I’d been told detailed stories of things that had happened and was beginning to think people were doing just that, telling stories. When it was time to do rounds again that night, I moved from room to room without any trouble until I got

The Tapping Ghost of Manchester.

30 September 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

This story takes place in Manchester, United Kingdom. It happened when I was a child around six years old, so 1986. I was at the family home with my mum dad and older brother Paul. Paul and I used to share a bunk bed, with him on bottom and me on the top. I used to sleep with a clip-on lamp on my right hand side. One night I awoke to a tapping on my shoulder — fast taps… one two three. It woke me almost instantly, so I turned on the lamp to see why my brother was harassing me at this time of the night. When I looked down, he was asleep — or pretending, I thought. Growing up, we were always playing pranks on each other. I

The Phantom Gardener

29 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

Five years ago I purchased a couple of 18th century houses built next to each other and surrounded by a lovely mature garden. The houses are on the outskirts of a picturesque village called St Dizier Leyrenne, which is located in the Limousin region of France. I purchased the houses with the intention of letting out as rural holiday homes (gites) and this is exactly what I have done. Soon after making my purchase, I spent some considerable time over one summer, renovating both the properties, and it is during this time that I first had a rather strange thing happen. Whilst fitting a new window overlooking the garden, I noticed a man in overalls and a straw hat, he was apparently tending to the flowers and shrubs, being intrigued,

A Ripple In Time? The Hanged Man.

28 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

I have been a first responder for many years. Some very strange things have happened. But nothing like this one situation I found myself in. I was called out to a “situation” one evening. I arrived and spoke to a middle aged lady who told me that her son was under the influence of a drug. She didn’t know what drug he had taken. But apparently he had been babbling and acting in a very strange way. He had told her that he was scared to go to his room because an old man was hanging above his bed. She said that she hadn’t checked out his claim as she was too scared to go into his room. She did tell me that he was constantly bringing friends over who

Haunted Fish…

27 September 2016 | Your Stories

Staying with the fish theme today…. I don’t know about you, but this story freaks me out! When this took place I was five years old, or maybe a little younger. Surrounded by my toys I played in the living room alone as I often did. On this day I remember it was raining and grey and I was playing with my game of toy fishing instead of the garden which was my usual haunt. It was a simple toy which included a circular dish which would be filled with plastic fish, and tiny fishing rods with magnets attached to the end. The aim was simply catch a fish with the magnet on the rod. It was meant for two people or more but often I played it by myself.

The Fish Eater of Stromovka – Prague’s Wanna Be Vampire?

26 September 2016 | Your Stories

A large park called Stromovka in Prague boasts a Fish Eater, a sort of vampire that feasts on the blood of rotting fish but, should you be passing through the park on a moonlit night, may just be tempted to try a drop of human blood too. The Fish Eater was once an aide to a certain General Windischgratz, who held various posts in the Austrian army, but notably was head of the army in Prague. He was apparently a strange man who hailed from an aristocratic family and was in someway related to Count Dracula. He would bathe in the fishponds of the park on moonlit nights imagining himself as the head officer of the fish in the pond who he saw as his soldiers. Unfortunately, he met a
