Black Figure With Glowing White Eyes by LaurenPotter1111

This happened in the summer of 2013. I was in bed sleeping when I woke up from a panic attack. I never woke up with a panic attack before, at least not suddenly.

Shadows On The Wall by Deciduous

This has been going on since I was around...I'd say nine years old and it still continues bugging me to this day. Ever since I was small I was afraid of the dark.

Kitchen Shadow Man by yomomma

I believe this next occurrence happened in 2011. It was night-time and I was home alone. Being home alone was something I had come to dread. Especially after dark.

Dark Shadows And Angel Figurines by JustAnotherPerson

From the comments that I have read on my previous stories, many of you guys have said that all the ghost stuff that has been happening to me will begin to stop when I turn 18 or 19; and I do trust that, because I really want the ghosts to leave me alone. But, in the meantime, I have actually been wa...

Intelligent, Obvious Shadow Person by flowersgrowback

Somewhere in the woods that surround the cul de sac outside of my parents' home (in Southern Alabama) and the cemetery that runs parallel to it all, I've seen a tall, opaque, obviously intelligent shadow person.

Shadow Man's Back! by Teej

The Tall Dark Figure by ginaleo1979

I must start my experience with a quick prequel: The house I grew up in was in the central valley of California, and I believed it to be haunted.

The Shadow In My Corner by Turtlegirlsocks

I'm still a teenager. A lot of people tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, that it's not real. I refuse to believe what those tell me. I know what I see and what I've always been able to see.

Shadow Man Brings Knowledge by SeriouslyConfused

Ever since I was about 5 or 6, I used to see this shadow man. I would only see him out of the corner of my eye, so I passed it off as my eyes playing tricks on me.

Standing Right Next To Me by SegaGK

Ever since I was really young, I would have Sleep Paralysis. It would scare me so much that I would be afraid to fall asleep again the next night.

The Man In The Hall Is Back With Something Else by Sam222

If you read my story "The Figure, the Touches, and the Door Lock," "The Man" in this story is same as "The Figure" in the other story. I'm calling him a man now because the figure clearly represents a man, it's not a woman so why not call it a man. So had been a few weeks since I last saw this ma...

Sidewalk Shadow by Weirdchick_97
