The Haunted Book Shelf by morgan

We just moved to north carolina and the house me and my family moved into was built back in the early 1960's. It was back in the woods where a battlefield used to be and also a graveyard. I was about 9 at the time. There was this old fireplace in the living room and beside it was a old built-in book...

This is yet another story relating to my first one. This happened when I was about 16. There is a clock in the kitchen above the sink, and is dead center on the back wall of the kitchen.

My Brother is Experiencing a Poltergeist by Derek15

As you may know, I recently wrote a story about my experience in my brother's old apartment last summer. This time, it's not me who's experiencing things. It's my brother, and it's in his new apartment, just blocks from the one where I experienced what may have been his landlady's dad's spirit. We t...

A Ghastly Stalker by TheOneWithThePower

I was at my step-sisters' house in Sherrell's (my oldest step-sister) room playing a game. My two real sisters, Rebekah and Samantha, were there too, and our parents were out grocery shopping.

Who's in the Basement? by B

The house we lived in was creepy as hell already. When my bedroom was upstairs, I found someone had carved into the inside of my closet door "so-and-so died here on such-and-such a date" I thought nothing of it and decided some other kid who lived here before wrote it there to scare people. My mo...

This Wasn't Funny Anymore by dee_taylor_85

My husband was stationed at Ft. Wainwright, AK with the Army. We lived on base in some of the oldest family housing there.

Hi it's me again! I want to start off from when I moved in my new house. Everything seemed normal at first but after a weeks have passed, we came across some weird stuff.

Her Money Keeps Disappearing by pscnldy

Hi, I have always been interested in the occult, ghosts, voodoo, etc. These things have always fascinated me. I have never had such physical encounters as the ones I have been reading.

Scariest Night of my Life by Eric

It was October 12, 2007 around 9:30 pm and I was on the computer.

Military Spirit Never Dies! by kboyer1021

I am actually writing this on behalf of my husband, he is still a little weirded out by his experience.

Footprints of a Strange Visitor by Bellissima

This is one of those stories passed down through the family, told by my father. He passed away so I can't ask him to clear any details, but I'll relate it as well as I can remember. My father's family, a couple of generations back, lived in Arkansas. They were very poor and I suppose they were what ...

The Piano Plays On by Kevan

There is a small little town near Dora that's called "Old Dora" mainly because back in the day, it was the place to be, complete with stores a library, a methodist church, and even a train station.

Not a Very Scary Ghost by tricia889

The first time she experienced the ghost was when she snuck into his closet to...

My First Apartment Alone by Justin

As most stories start out "on a dark and stormy night", I will bypass the horror formalities and just tell you exactly what happened. I had been living in Memphis TN for over a year, and at this time was living with a good friend of mine named Kari in an apartment complex in East Memphis. We got alo...

Flickering Lights by Pangie

I've already told one ghost story but this is another slightly smaller one. When I was younger and still lived in the US in california, we lived in a town house.

Yogurt Trip Gone Bad by bogienova

Southern Scare by amyradvan

A few months ago, I was about to take a shower. I needed another bar of soap, so I went and grabbed a new bar out of the drawer. I pulled it out of the box and set it on a shelf in the shower.

The Strange Room by KimSouthO

I just returned from a business trip to Kansas City Missouri. The seminar I attended was at a very old but lovely hotel in the area.

Fingerprints on the Shower Mirror by hellosailor87

Andy by ladyannne

It can be just as spoo...

Basically I just nodded with that teen...

Hovering Vacuum Cleaner by lian01

I don't really like stories that are posted on behalf of someone else, I think it often damages the credibility. I'm only submitting this story because I believe 100% that it is real. It is an encounter that happened to my best friend Max. He's the kind of best friend that you consider more to be fa...

Visit to my Stereo by Bellissima

This is just something I thought would be interesting to share. When my kids were just little ones, (oldest being 3 years old and baby was 6 months, now they're 15 and 12) we had a pretty decent stereo system. I'm sure you can guess hubby picked it out (boys and their toys!) and he was pretty proud ...

The Shaking Bed by purplequeen12

To be honest, I still play with barbie dolls even though I think I'm a bit old for them. But I really don't care. I don't play with them much anymore because I have had a couple of strange doll experiences. The one I will tell you is sort of mind-boggling. Not really, it's just really odd. I hav...

Ghost Repeating His Pattern by asje

We were always told by our elders not to stay out late at night, because we might stumble upon 'things' that claim the streets their territory between 12 am and 5 am. And when we entered the house during those hours, we were told to enter with our back, facing the door. This way nothing would be abl...
