The Dark Presence: A True Paranormal Account of A Suburban Haunting

29 July 2016 | Creepy places, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The first day I moved into my new house was amazing. I had been living with my parents, and I had never felt better that I did to move into my own place. After the house movers had left I had some washing up to do. While doing that chore I heard footsteps from the hallway. These steps went halfway up the stairs and stopped. I could feel the hair on the back of my neck stand to attention. I felt this sudden feeling of dread and it was really uncomfortable. I checked all four bedrooms and found nothing. The house was silent, but I still had this feeling of dread. I carried on with the washing up trying to forget about it and about half hour later. I mean,

Black Eyed Homeless Man Confrontation In Australia

28 July 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Creepy places, Your Stories

I have been reading a lot of stories about the Black Eyed People lately. I want to share my experience with one of them.  This took place in March 2007. I live in Australia and March is the beginning of fall, but the nights can still be quite warm. I was working at a coffee shop in the city at the time and decided to walk home that night. It would take me around forty-five minutes to walk home but figured, what the hey. I was about half way home and it was already dark. It would have been about 7 p.m. I was just walking past my local library when I noticed a homeless guy who I’d seen around our neighborhood the last few months. He was heading toward me

Could Your School Be Haunted? An Experience of the Paranormal From A Teacher

27 July 2016 | Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

Ever since I qualified as a teacher I have been had some very interesting paranormal experiences inside school buildings. One building was reputed to be haunted by quite a few ghosts and there were a lot of cold spots—especially in the gym where a murder was said to have taken place. However, the story I am submitting today is rather strange. In this particular school, we usually had twenty to thirty students per class. My classroom that day was quite spacious for us and on my left were the door and narrow window. I had a few jokers in this class that day that kept on annoying each other, so while I was writing on the board, I was keeping an eye on their reflections, too. At first, I was

The Brewster Project Poltergeist, Detroit, MI

26 July 2016 | Creepy places, Your Stories

A few years ago I was at a friend’s house with a few other buddies, at around 4am in the morning we decided to go to bed and get some sleep. I was in the Brewster Projects in Detroit, don’t know if it has to do with anything but the building is probably around 70, or 80 years old. Anyway we’re all in the same room trying to get some sleep, everything seemed fine. The Brewster Projects were considered to be one of the more dangerous places in Detroit—but nothing ever happened to me when I was there visiting friends. As I drifting off, I felt something tapping me. I ignored it, I just thought it was one of my friends trying to bother me. Awake and getting pissed off

Black Eyed Man Stalks A Couple At A Small Town Gas Station

25 July 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Creepy places, Your Stories

I have been interested in the paranormal for a few years, and read the stories on your site almost every day. I have been thinking about something that happened to me a couple of years ago. I was in college, and had just left a movie theater with my boyfriend. As we were leaving, I saw a car and I looked into the window, and no one was in it, or maybe the windows were tinted so I couldn’t see anything, but I stared at it for a while not knowing why. Then my boyfriend realized he needed gas pulled over into a gas station. As he filled up and went into the station to pay for the gas I noticed that the car I’d seen before had now pulled

Can We Come In And Use Your Telegraph? Another Strange, Terrifying Stateside Incident With The Black-Eyed Kids

22 July 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This incident happened to me around five years ago. It was in December, or January and we were having particularly strong snow storms. I have been in bed for a few hours and started to hear tapping noises coming from several windows in my house. It must have been around 3am. I just thought it was some kids in the neighborhood making asses of themselves. So I got up, went downstairs and opened the door. Two boys were standing there. Now remember this is the middle of winter and these two boys are standing there in thin jackets and pants. The cold didn’t seem to bother them one bit. I also started to feel very anxious—scared even. I couldn’t explain it at the time. The smaller of the boys suddenly

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
