Hell-raising Incident with the Black Eyed Kids in Europe. Is This Epidemic Spreading?

21 July 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Creepy places, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have been following the stories you have been posting about these Black Eyed Kids. Just a few months ago I was travelling in Europe. I’m from Michigan, but had the once in a lifetime opportunity to go to Europe with a friend. I was enjoying my vacation—until this happened. One weekend I heard crying from the hallway of my hotel room. I lay on my back in bed a little while, thinking about what it could be. My friend was sleeping like the dead, so I got out of bed to go check out the crying. I was about to be scared half to death. I got out of our room, and went toward the main door and opened it up. I stuck my head out and looked both

Arguing Voices From Upstairs Concern A Small Girl

07 July 2016 | Audible Activity, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was young, I lived at my Aunt’s house. The house was huge but was completely occupied as most of my relatives lived there. However, during the day, the house would be almost empty except for my older aunt and the housemaid, as most of the people living there went to work. One day, I was sent home early from school because I was sick. Upon arriving home, the housemaid prepared me some chicken soup and told me to eat it at the dining area. She left me there alone and I started to eat the soup. After a few minutes, I heard some voices coming from the 2nd floor. At first I couldn’t make out what they were saying but it sounded as if they were arguing. Straining

Have You Ever Seen Your Doppelganger?

28 April 2016 | April 2016, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I couldn’t sleep one night, and it was fairly late. So I decided to go and sit outside on the porch. No one was outside, until she saw a young girl walking down the street. I thought it was unusual for a girl to be out so late—but I decided she must have been returning home from her boyfriend’s house, or from a party. I couldn’t really make the figure out until she came in front of the house. The girl seemed to be staring into nothing. But when she reached the end of our driveway, she stopped and stared directly at me. It was then and there that I could make out her appearance. She looked exactly like me. With my hair, eyes, skin, body, everything was exactly the

Crying Lady

03 December 2015 | December 2015, Your Stories

This happened when I was about 16 years old. My dad had just scolded me for coming home late. I went outside and sat by our pool to cry my heart out. When I looked at the swing there was an old lady sitting there looking at me. Immediately I knew she was an apparition because she was almost transparent. I couldn’t move, I thought I was yelling for help but nothing seemed to come out. I closed my eyes and when I opened them she was gone.I saw her again as I was on my way out with some friends. She was motioning for me not to go. I thought I was imagining this and went out just the same. We got into a head on collision accident. I

The Boneyard

27 November 2015 | November 2015, Your Stories

On the edge of town there is a very old graveyard. It had a name at one point—but the marker has been worn down to such a degree that the name is now unreadable. Most of us just call it the “bone yard.” The graves are some of the oldest in America. Some of the tombs are falling apart, many of the graves are unattended. Sometimes you see a bouquet, wreath or some sort of remembrance—but not often. One day I was walking home and happened to be walking past the graveyard. A man wearing a blue suit and tie and old bell-bottoms was wandering through the graveyard. Blue eyes, shaggy hair, sideburns. He looked like a caricature of the 70’s. I watched him—more surprised at someone visiting the graveyard,

Strange Happenings in New England

24 November 2015 | November 2015, Your Stories

This happened in New England in 1989. My daughter was almost four years old, and we had gone shopping for the day. I really didn’t like to shop in the side of town that we were in. It was rundown and pretty dangerous there. As a child I had spent a lot of time in that area though—we had lived near that shopping strip and my parents and I would shop there each week. Most of the shops were empty by 1989 though. My daughter and I were walking down the side of the road—a roadside she had never been down before. To my utter surprise she asked, “Can we go to the toy store after you’ve been shopping for food?” I knew for a fact that the toyshop had closed

My Protective Grandmother

21 October 2015 | October 2015, Your Stories

As a child my mother was concerned about me as I would talk to people in my sleep. I later began sleepwalking all the time. Although she was concerned about the talking in my sleep, and my sleepwalking she always played along and acted as though she wanted to meet my invisible friend. During the middle of the night I woke up to see, what looked like an old woman, sitting at the end of my bed. It was a dark, shadow figure but I could tell from the permed hair that it was female. I literally hid under my duvet and I never told anyone else about it. After that my sleepwalking and talking ended and I forgot about the whole thing. A few years later, after my mother

The Cursed Skull

16 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

A couple of my school friends found an ancient burial mound on the side of a hill, near Phoenix, that contained a silver-studded saddle and a skull. I was very wary about the find and warned the others that they’d better leave it alone. I just didn’t feel it was right to mess around with a grave. One of my friends decided to take the skull and the saddle home with him. A couple of days later, one of my friends who had gone on the expedition got a call from the guy who took the artifacts asking him if he’d like the skull. Apparently his dad didn’t want the grisly item in his house. You also have to remember that skulls were hot items back in the late 1950’s for decoration and, of course, as

The Old Man

13 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

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 the two

The Ghost That Declined A Lift

10 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

My father used to tell me a story about an experience he had in the late late 1950s, while on a sales trip through the hills of rural Pennsylvania, my grandfather was travelling on a dirt road when he saw a rough looking man walking by the side of the road far off into the distance. He always said that his dirty faded blue clothes looked torn and he was stumbling, like he had either had too much to drink or had been in a fight. The closer he got to this man, the worse he began to feel for him and thought he would at least offer him a lift to the next town. As he got closer, he saw that this man was all cut up and burned and wearing a blue

A Possessed Painting?

08 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

I have started reading all of the stories on this blog. I have always had an interest in the paranormal and thought I would share my own creepy experience with you. At home we have a main floor family room which looks up to a deck that looks down into the family room. We were getting ready for supper. My son was upstairs in his bedroom reading with his aunt. My wife, mother, daughter and myself were in the kitchen below. The kitchen is open concept to the family room so you can see pretty well everything in the family room.  I was standing on the edge of both rooms. All of a sudden, I heard a noise coming from the deck. I went to investigate and saw that a

Creepy Christmas Cell Phone

06 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

This story is about something strange that happened at home during the Christmas break. My husband had his cell phone on our dining room table and it was turned off for the evening. My purse was in our library where my husband was playing a computer game with our daughter. In my purse I had my cell phone turned on. As my husband and daughter were playing my cell phone rang. Of course my husband picked it up and it said the incoming call was coming in from his cell phone! He thought our son was playing a prank on him and ran into the room we were in and told our son to stop messing around with his cell phone. We laughed at him and asked him what he

The Ghost Who Locked Me Out of My House

03 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

  About 17 years ago, I was living in Montana in a house that was pretty far outside of the city limits.  Right from the start the house did strange things. The lights would cut out, as would the T.V and then the T.V started changing channels on it’s own. Items would move from place to place on their own. One night I went outside to feed my dog. I noticed my dog was staring at the back door of the house and making noise. I thought that was strange so I looked around and saw a woman dressed in very old clothing, likely from the Wild West era, standing by the door. When she saw me looking at her she closed the door and disappeared into thin air. I was

Double Trouble

01 July 2015 | July 2015, Your Stories

After my dad had died, a few strange things began to happen in our house. The strangest incident happened one day when my daughter had gone out for the day. My husband and I had been talking in the front room when our daughter came home and shouted “hello” to us. We thought nothing of it, called back “hello” and continued our conversation. About an hour later the phone rang. My husband answered it and shouted upstairs for our daughter Jane. When Jane failed to answer he went upstairs thinking she must have been busy, asleep or pre-occupied. She wasn’t at home. My husband told her friend that she wasn’t home and we shrugged the whole thing off as nothing. About fifteen minutes later Jane came home and we asked her

A Voice From Beyond The Grave

29 June 2015 | June 2015, Your Stories

  When I was about six, or seven, years old, our home phone rang. It was about 9pm at night. My mum was busy in the other room, so she asked me to answer it. When I did, at first I heard lots of static. I repeated over and over again, “Hello? Hello?” But nobody answered, just all this static. Thinking that must have been a wrong number, I started to hang up. But then a voice caught me. “Hello?” said the voice. To my surprise, it sounded like my grandfather. So I said, “Grandpa? Grandpa? I can’t hear you.” And he said something like, “Hi, baby. How are you? Can I speak with your mommy?” So, thinking it was my mothers father, who is still with us, I gave my mom the phone and left the room.
