You call them Vampires, I call them Pontianaks

02 March 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

If you ask anyone what a vampire looks like, I’m pretty sure they will tell you. They probably saw one in a movie, stories they heard as a child or they have seen it for themselves. As far as I know, vampires only exist in the western world because I’ve heard about them and watched movies about vampires. I’ve always wondered if vampires and ‘pontianak’ are the same. All I know is they’re blood sucking, evil ghosts! In some parts of South East Asia, people believe that a woman who dies whilst giving birth will come back as a pontianak (perempuan mati beranak in Malay language meaning a woman who died giving birth) and a pontianak isn’t any ghost you would like to mess with. Some people say if you

My Drunken Ghost

28 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened in the late 80s. I was sharing an old house in CT with a couple of friends. The House was 2 floors with a walk-in, unfinished attic and full basement. There were 3 separate incidents, all occurring when I was home alone with my roommate’s German Shepard. The first time I experienced something unusual was one evening when I decided to go up to the attic to look for something I had packed away. To get to the attic, I had to go through an unused bedroom where there was a doorway and a set of stairs going up to the attic. The attic was lit by a single bulb with a switch at the bottom of the stairs. My buddy’s Shepard followed me upstairs, but he stopped

The Ghostly Warning

27 February 2020 | Precognition, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My story begins in 1983 at the age of 8 years old. When I saw my first ghost. From that point on, I was hooked and wanted answers. Fast forward to 2015. I am with my team – arrowhead paranormal out of Uncasville Connecticut. My grandfather and hero had just passed. I had woke at 2 am to use the bathroom only to see my daughter sitting in the living room. I asked her what she was doing. She said that she had seen a black shadow with a white mist walking in the hall way. I thought nothing of it because she has the fife and can see and talk to spirits. I went back to bed. At 6 am, my phone rings on the other end is my

What Did I See?

24 February 2020 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A little while ago, I was walking my daughter’s dog in my neighborhood here in Brno. I live under the Castle and there are lots of well lit nice walks around the Castle. Some of them have areas to rest and look at the views with seating. I was approaching such an area when I saw a bag on the gravel floor of the path. As I got closer, I saw that it was a backpack. Steering the dog away from it, my first thought was someone had left their bag so naturally, I walked towards it and peered in. It was full of stones, rocks and wood. It was then that I noticed the skeleton laid out next to the bag. It too was made of rocks, pebbles, wood,

The Water Witch

21 February 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened when I was nine years old. I’m now 28. Me and my friends Bill, Mark, Ben, were planning a sleepover before school started back up. So we decided it would be Ben’s house. We did what all boys do – watch movies, play video games and pranks. We decided to tell scary stories too. We all told ours except for Ben he started telling his about a woman who lived here like 70 years ago. She was a witch. She had killed her 9 boys in the lake behind their house. She brings them to the lake and drowns them. After that we went to bed about four hours. Later, I heard a sound like snag, drag, snag, drag as if someone was dragging wet clothing. I hit

The Devil in Disguise

19 February 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

(Sumansaa is the evil entity known by many in the Kadazan community in the West Coast Division in Sabah – North Borneo). The story about Sumansaa was told by my grand dad. He said the thing looked like a goat but it is actually a devil that only appears on rainy nights. The body is long; I remember grand dad said it was almost three feet long with its head and eyes tilted towards the sky. It doesn’t have any sense of direction at all instead a black bird sits on its head and help the goat find its way in the dark. Grand dad told me how he came face-to-face with the Sumansaa when he was in his 20’s. Not only that, he even chased the thing with his

Evil InTow

17 February 2020 | Demons, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in the mid 90s, I use to hangout at a corner bar being depressed and drinking alone. I met a really nice man (I thought) and we started playing pool and having a good time. I decided to ask him if he want a bump of coke. He was much too happy to accept. We drank till we shut the place down. At closing time, he need a ride to his home. I thought little about it as we drove to his house. He told me to pull over by an empty field. At first, I assumed we needed to turn around. I knew something was wrong as he started asking me if I believe in Christ. I told him I did. I dare not to look at him

Texan Doppelganger

10 February 2020 | Doppelgangers, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Ever since I was about 11 or 12 years old, people have often told me that I looked identical to someone else. I am a short, dark-skinned hispanic girl. Where I am from, my looks are not uncommon, but people swear I look just like her. Oddly enough, they never state her name. My sister once chased a girl believing it was me until she turned around and looked closely. The weirdest instance was when I went on a work trip to San Francisco for a conference. Outside of the conference, a woman stopped me and said “I can’t believe you made it to the conference.” I had never met her in my life. She stated “we are quite a distance from San Antonio”, which is where I am from.

Someone was Watching Me….

06 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I am 14 and when I was 11, my mom had just got a new job, so we moved to a new house. The house was not the best but had the room for my mom, two sisters, brother in law, step mom, and me. Shortly after we moved in, I was having trouble sleeping at night. It was like someone was always watching me. It was middle of the summer and we didn’t have the best air conditioning so my mom always kept my window open. I hated that window. It was right by some vines that crawled up the house and I was on the second story. I always felt like something was going to come up and crawl through my window. I hated being alone in that

The Horrible Stench

04 February 2020 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

For the sake of privacy, all characters in this story will be given a fictitious name. One day, N and his wife noticed a horrible and ubiquitous stench. They thought a mouse must have died somewhere. Sniffing around everywhere he thought could be the location of the carcass, but could find a thing. He then plugged in air fresheners on every floor of the house, but he could not mask the odor. A few days past, the odor remained just as strong. His wife would call her mother in-law every week to check on her health. She noticed that her mother in-law did not answer her call nor her son’s call. She and N wondered, but thought that perhaps the 80-year-old lady had gone to church, but even on weekdays,

Death in the Basement

03 February 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have 2 stories for you, well they are not mine they happened to my mother in law when she was younger but both she and my father in law have told me the stories for years. My MIL grew up in an old house in Pennsylvania with a cemetery right behind her house and a church beside her. There were 5 children in total with her brother dying at a very young age from something I can’t remember right now. But anyway, their house was 3 stories and it had a basement, main floor and upstairs. The basement had the laundry, main floor had the kitchen/living room/ bathroom and the top floor had all the bedrooms. They always had at least one or 2 dogs in the house and

Mysterious Happenings at Stanley Hotel

31 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In late July 2019, I stayed overnight in the Stanley hotel with my parents, niece, and nephew. They stayed in Room 330, while I was in a different room on the 2nd Floor, nowhere near their room. I had been to the hotel before, but never toured or stayed before. The last time I went, I trekked down the stairs near the front desk. This led to a sort of underground tunnel. In this tunnel, my brother-in-law and I came across a small lounge/bar. I spoke with a few employees there for just a few minutes. Right away, I felt something uneasy in the air, and these employees confirmed my feelings. There were rapid temperatures changes, and feelings that someone else was right next to me, and just generally a

Shadow People

30 January 2020 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Okay, so I know that there is a shadow man but has anyone experienced shadow people? This probably sounds super weird and I think it all started around my 13th birthday. I just got out of a really bad friend group and noticed these strange “beings”. I call them “the Beings” because I can’t tell if they’re man or monster. Well, it was maybe a week after my 13 and I’d see a shadow that’s not mine when I’m in a room by myself. This was two years ago. Skip ahead two years and everything’s sooo much worse! I constantly feel as if I’m watched and I’m on edge. So much so that any loud, sudden noise and I’m a complete wreck. I don’t know if women are more prone

A Night at my Cousin’s House…

29 January 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was late August 2008. My mom decided we would go over to my cousins house in California for the weekend. My mom’s sister had 2 other daughters – one was older than me and her name was Meena and the other younger daughter who was almost my age, which was 12 at the time called Tameena. We all were into ghosts and creepy things and we all had the feeling that the house was haunted. Things would move on their own, toys would come on randomly at night for no reason, stuff would go missing and then be found somewhere else, typical ghost stuff. One night, we decided it would be a good idea to try and maybe summon the spirit or at least try to get in contact

The Forest Demon

28 January 2020 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was 15 and I remember it was around the beginning of October. I had just had dinner and decided to go wonder around outside since we lived in a subdivision that borders cornfield and forest there was always a lot to do. I wondered into a mowed field hoping to see a buck since they often hung out there in the afternoons eating leftovers from the harvest. My brother and I always tried to outdo each other by finding a buck with the most points on his antlers. So before I knew it, I had wondered out pretty far and I was surprised that I hadn’t seen a single deer or rabbit anywhere which was strange, so I decided to head back. As I turned around there was something
