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

The Haunted School Bathroom: Are Schools Really Haunted?

23 September 2016 | Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

When I was 7 years old I used to be scared of going into my school bathroom alone, this is because every time I was in there by myself I would see a young girl standing in the shower. She wore a grey school skirt, long white socks, black shoes, white polo shirt and a jumper. I tried ignoring her for about half a year, as I thought I was going mad because nobody else saw it, but she never moved. I spoke to my mum about it, I was so scared even though the young girl hadn’t moved, and my mom told me to talk to the ghost, I did talk to her, and I asked her to leave me alone, but she did nothing. I saw her constantly throughout

The Disappearing Smoking Ghost: Have You Encountered Anything Like This?

22 September 2016 | Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

I worked for a development company that had purchased an entire neighborhood of Victorian homes to renovate and resell. Every home for a two block radius was empty except for the one that I lived in; which was near completion and was going to be used as the model home. One afternoon, I was almost out of cigarettes and decided to walk to a corner store a few blocks away. Keep in mind that this was an out of the way neighborhood, there were no workmen around, all of the homes were vacant, and the entire area was deserted. I had only walked about one block, and was walking looking down at the side walk lost in thought when a few feet ahead of me I heard a voice say

The Las Vegas Sand Demon: Have You Seen It?

21 September 2016 | Bizarre, Creepy places, September 2016, Your Stories

This happened in the early 80’s. I was getting married for the first time. My wedding was to be in Las Vegas, so my fiancée and I drove up and were traveling on the freeway to Vegas. This happened on that freeway during our journey to Vegas. We were coasting along, talking about the wedding, when we both noticed something “white” start to cross the freeway in front of us. This figure was actually floating, and I honestly thought it was a piece of paper. I continued talking to my fiancée, but kept my eye on this thing when finally, we got right up to it and almost ran it over. At exactly the same time, we screamed, “What the hell is that?” What we saw was a miniature ‘devil’

Did The Devil Write This Huge Bible in One Night?

20 September 2016 | Your Stories

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see this strange document first hand, as it was on display outside of Brno. In fact, what I saw was a copy of the original. Nonetheless, the effect was chilling. The Devil’s Bible or Codex Gigas is 36inches tall by 20 inches wide and about 9 inches thick. It contains a set of Christian texts including the Bible. It is bound in leather with metal trim and weighs over 165 pounds. It is known for the amazing color illustration in its pages of the Devil and that is how it gained its name. Historians believe the text was created in the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice in the Czech Republic in the early 13th century. Now, as if the scale of the Bible

The Haunted Hotel Room!

19 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

Five years ago my wife and I decided to take a weekend break.  The hotel we chose was a hotel named the Barony Castle hotel on the outskirts of Peebles on the Scottish border. The hotel itself lay in acres of land surrounded by forest. While getting dressed for an evening meal. My wife was sat at the dressing table while I was standing by the bed, when suddenly the Television, which stood on the other side of the room,  switched itself on. It stayed on for a few minutes then switched itself off again. It did this about three times. Neither my wife or myself felt fazed by this, until the following morning while we where checking out. The receptionist said to us, “Oh, I see you where in

I Found A Black Eyed Kid Selfie on my Phone!

16 September 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories

Here is a very strange BEK story submitted a couple of days ago… Very freaky story! It was about 10pm in late June when this happened and it really creeped me out. I live in Colombia in the countryside. I was forced one day to move my PC to our 3rd Floor studio to get a better signal from the modem in our house. While I was setting up the PC, I noticed that my IPhone’s icloud Storage was so large that it could not actually complete a back up. This made me spend the next half an hour clearing my phone of old junk I no longer used. Lastly, I began to erase old pictures that I didn’t wish to keep anymore. I cleared almost all of the photos leaving

Haunting Review of a Hotel in Prague on TripAdvisor!

15 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

I found this review of a hotel in Prague on Tripadvisor.com while doing research for my next book. I think they posted it to the wrong site! Do you agree? My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Green lobster hotel and we had the first suite on the first floor. The suite was amazing and more than comfortable, we have to say by far the best hotel we have stayed at in our trips to Prague. However we do believe there was a little bit of spiritual activity in the suite to keep us both entertained. Both my wife and I struggle to believe in anything like that, but if it’s in your face you can’t argue can you? The first thing was a light stroking of my face

Battle With Evil on The Doorstep

09 September 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories

The BEK stories continue to come in thick and fast. Here is another recently submitted. Each new submission makes it seem like there is a real battle with evil on the doorstep going on…. My encounter started like any other. Some kids came to my door. I was alone in the house, playing video games when this long knock came to the door. I could see through the curtain on the door that it was just some kids, and living in a neighborhood with several families with kids this was nothing out of the ordinary. Yet before I even opened the door I began to feel extremely wary. I opened it to find two boys, around twelve or thirteen, standing on my porch. The Taller boy had knocked, the smaller

Halloween Nightmare

07 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

In October of 1971, some friends of mine told me about the old Confederate cemetery across the river from Fort Smith, Arkansas, in the small town of Lavaca. Trying to frighten me, because I am from Michigan, they challenged me to go to the cemetery on Halloween night. With me driving and my friends giving me the directions, off we went to Lavaca to see the “ghosts” of the Civil War. The cemetery was right next to this small white church that we had to drive down a narrow lane between orchards to get to. There was a clock, on a timer in the steeple that gonged for every hour. That Halloween night, when the clock struck twelve, the clock gonged thirteen times not twelve. When I looked over to

Photo of Doppelganger Causes Health Issues?

06 September 2016 | Doppelgangers, Your Stories

I posted on Reddit a while ago asking if anyone had had experiences with doppelgangers. To my surprise, I got several responses most of which I have already posted here. This is the last story of a doppelganger encounter from that source but it’s a creepy one…. Imagine, sitting in a restaurant and this happens! Years ago, I was out eating dinner at a local Carabbas restaurant with my mom. The large party table across from ours had a small girl around the age of 4 or 5 who two or three times walked over and called me “sissy” and wanted to sit in my lap. I didn’t think anything of it until her grandmother walked over. She apologized politely but hesitantly, and explained that I just so happened to
