Night Crawler by SpookyEbony

For this story I'll have to jump back a few years to when I was 17 and living with my father. I had been with him for a year. My father and I lived in a little 2 bedroom unit behind my Nana's house. In the main house (as we called it) lived Nana, a handful of my cousins, my uncle and my younger sist...

Paranormal Life Just Got A Bit More Active by CDubber

My story begins practically right from when I was born. My whole family is very spiritual and a majority of them are psychic or have had paranormal encounters. First of, I'll start by saying all of these events have occurred in various places, as my family and I tend to move around a lot but all...

Did I See My Own Ghost? by KellzMelis

I cannot tell you exactly how long ago this happened; only that it was a little chilling. My story does not include any ghosts, although I do quite often see them. This story is about another paranormal experience I had roughly three years ago. I don't know what to call it, but I suppose it was an O...

The Little Red Imp 3 by SpookyEbony

It had been 3 days since the shadow man attacked me and my mother. Finally the day of the clearing had rolled around, ironically on my 15th birthday. Only my mother and I were allowed to be in attendance. My brother and sisters had been sent to my grandparent's house for the afternoon. Aside from th...

The Little Red Imp 2 by SpookyEbony

After the incident at my grandparent's house with the imp, I was very wary of sleeping at night. I've always been a light sleeper and now every tiny little noise I heard would set me on edge and I'd find it hard to get to sleep. About a week had passed but I was still disturbed by what had happened ...

The Little Red Imp by SpookyEbony

This was to be the first of a month's worth of unsettling events. A month may seem like a short time, but I swear it was the longest, most terrifying month of my entire life. Not surprisingly I remember the date: December 14 2003. I was 14 at the time. I was staying with my grandparents as I oft...

Is It My Imagination Or Is This A Ghost? by amandariot

My name is Amanda and I am 17 years old. When I was little, about 7 or 8 years old, whenever I was home alone I would hear footsteps upstairs. It used to really scare me because I thought someone was in the house. I also used to hear whispers or movement in the walls of that same house. I never thou...

Paralysis, Spiralling Falling, Shaking Bed, Orb, Smoke by vegas101

Partner Sees Spirits by Lilady4

As promised, I am submitting another story. This is a true account. My partner and I have been together for 4 years and we are getting married in August of this year. My partner explained to me that he has seen spirits (and at first, I was skeptical) and he explained them in vivid detail. Here a...

Ghosts Following Me by Lilady4

This is a true story of ghosts and spirits following me. It is a collection of stories from my time living in my flat. My first story takes place in my flat. We have a Juice jug in our house (one of those containers that you make powdered drinks in) with a detachable lid on it. Anyways, it was empt...

A Baby Visits by mumoffour

I have been interested in ghosts for a long time but all efforts I made (asking them to show themselves in places I've been told are haunted etc) have been unsuccessful. As a result of that, I slowly lost faith and discounted ghost stories as just that, 'stories'. Recently, however, my baby began b...

The Man In The White Shirt by kiwi_girl

This happened only last week and although I'm not completely sure if it's paranormal it's certainly unexplainable. I've just finished my first year of my university degree and my boyfriend and I decided to take a break at his family holiday home on the beach for a few days. Before I begin let me tel...

Our New Flatmates Friend by kiwiboy

I live in an old 4 bedroom house with my partner and 3 children. We have lived here for seven years and had no paranormal activates, until recently when our flat mate moved in. 15 years ago she did a séance and the glass shot off the board and smashed against the wall, since then she has had weird ...

Am I Living With A Ghost? 3 by goatkiddie

Taking what I have seen from my last two stories more weird happenings have been going on and they were far freakier. I'll tell you what happened on 03-16-10. Since seeing my dark apparition in the window I believe he's following me. When you walk into my bathroom there is this mirror that can swin...

Am I Living With A Ghost? by goatkiddie

As a baby I had a lot of ghost experiences in my house. But now I have heard something that is interesting. I have a paper run and when I fold my papers I put them under a foot stool for folding and placing. My big brother was out, my mum and my step dad were also out and I was home alone. Consideri...

I Attacked A Shadow Person by KiwiSpirit

I have decided to submit my account of an occurrence which prompted me to find this website when searching for Shadow People (seems to be the accepted PC term for these beings). Need I try to convince you it's a true story? Like everyone else says I really don't worry if you believe it or not, but h...

It Was Like I Was Drugged by boob00_99

I couldn't tell if this was a dream or not because I somehow had woken up in the early morning on my bed in my bedroom. What had happened after a bad nightmare I woke up and I couldn't open my eyes properly. They were open half way but were really blurry, I tried forcing them open but they stayed...

Sister Instincts by Scream

You will need to know our family tree to get a lot of my stories, (if there are anymore) so I thought I'd explain it in this story. Donna (27), Christopher (26), children of Dad and Christina Harley (23), Casey (21), Sarah (18), Rodney (17), children of Dad and Tina Sharley (Me) (15), Floyd (1...

Impossible Reincarnation by Scream

Everyone on my father's side always said I reminded them - in every way - of their mother, (My Nanna Shirley Broughton). We were living in Hawera, a small town in South Taranaki, New Zealand. I was 7 and in a week I would have been turning 8. I was so excited, but couldn't see any presents aroun...

My Haunted Hallway by tommo

Although I come from a family who overall tend to be of a spiritual nature I have not really experienced much myself. I say much because of late I have certainly begun to experience the spiritual world first hand. My Great Grandmother was a spiritualist, my grandmother a firm believer and my moth...

Man In The Mirror by amac

I have lived in the same house in Auckland all my life. One day I was in my room and saw something out of the corner of my eye I looked but saw nothing.

Freaky Freaky Freaky by FrankieFatality

Pretty short and simple really, I woke up at about 3.00am this morning to something trying to push me out of my bed. When I awoke it continued until I started freaking out and crying then it just stopped. I also hear scratching on the walls and floorboards of my kitchen sometimes and my bedroom do...

It Don't Matter If Your Black Or White by Just_Mwah

My little brother of 9 has always been scared of things. Up to when he was about 6 or 7 he was afraid of the dark (and normally you stop when you're about 5.) Now he is scared at everything, even all the posters that are up on my walls because he says that the eyes follow him everywhere and they jus...

My Childhood Was Not Like Any Ordinary Childhood by SavanaAngelina

I grew up knowing that my mothers' family were gang people, so I literally had an out of it bringing up. Both my father and mothers sides were different. My father wasn't in the right state of mind when I was a little infant and my mother was too young. So I literally lived with different people fro...

So Who Was That Then? by Knoxru

It was about 11 pm at night and my second daughter aged 10 months woke and started to cry. It was my 'turn' that night to go and settle her and put her back to asleep. My wife was in the third bedroom of the house with our first daughter as she had needed settling from earlier in the night. I wo...

Another Haunted Cemetery by LordOfDarkeningShadows

This happened about a month ago. I went to a cemetery on the outskirts of town with my parents. My mum wanted to photograph a grave. When we got there, I got out of the car and walked into the cemetery. Right after I got out of the car I had felt completely normal but as soon as I entered this cemet...

Home Sweet Home by Anjoubelle

Normally I am not one to be easily scared. Rather, I prefer to play practical jokes on others, scaring them senseless used to be a great pass time but unfortunately one single experience has drastically changed my point of view, now days, I tend to avoid anything to do with the paranormal. My fami...

Never Provoke A Graveyard Spirit by LordOfDarkeningShadows

In my earlier story "Dream of A Funeral That Turned Demonic", I talked about having a dream about a cemetery near where I live. This story takes place at the same cemetery but was all too real. I was meeting somebody in town and had time to spare so I decided to go to the cemetery for five minute...

Hallows Eve Ouija Experience by Jginkx94

This is a true story some don't believe me but I thought that I should share because I wanted a more vivid explanation of what happened that night. Note that I am 14 years old but this is a true story. It was Halloween, and I was visiting my grandmother and she is of Wiccan decent. She told me th...

Does Anyone Else Have Experiences Like I Do? Help by lala123

Oh I'm new by the way. Since I was young I have been able to see things that I know none of my friends have. It all started when I was probably about 5. I woke up to be surrounded by numerous amounts of floating heads around my bed, like faces, it freaked me out so much. Ever since up until now (...

I'm Never Going To Use A Ouija Board Again by LordOfDarkeningShadows

This happened a few nights ago. I made a Ouija board and decided (stupidly, as I learned) to use it alone. The first two times I tried nothing happened but the third time I started getting answers. The conversations went like this: Conversation #1: Me: Is there anybody there? Board: Yes Me:...

Dream Of A Funeral That Turned Demonic by LordOfDarkeningShadows

The other night I went to bed at about 1am and fell asleep soon after. I dreamt I was walking through this creepy cemetery near my house. Everything in the cemetery was as it is in real life except that there weren't as many trees. I heard chanting and saw a funeral service. The priest and mourners ...

Hard To Say Goodbye by KayWeezy18

This is some pretty hard stuff to write especially when you still grieve but I'll try and cut a long story short. It's being two years since my cousin's passing. Earl only turned 25 and everyone had come back from Auckland back to Whanganui it had being a long weekend. On Sunday my cousin ran...

Ruth From Hell by Tomo

This is something that I had almost forgotten over the years but reading some your stories has brought this memory back to me, it wasn't pleasant at all and like most people who have played with a Ouija board I wish I had never done it. My story took place sometime in 2003, my girlfriend at the ...

Haunted Barracks by Tomo

In Jan 2005 I joined the army and had a few strange experiences while going through my first three months basic training.

The Haunted Yha by AussieRedDog

2000 was the last time I went on holidays. I took a trip to NZ for a few weeks, backpacking around the South Island (do it, it's worth the trip).

For the next few days his sister would hiss at his cat bed, my lap (where he used to sleep), my bed and all the places he used to sleep or lay. She was totally freaked out by something but I could not see what....

It Was Trying To Climb Over The Toilet Door by walangk3

I'm Lovale and I'm 13. What I'm going to tell you happened two months ago. We were at camp and everyone spread rumours around camp saying that there was a ghost in the toilet.

Is There Something In That House? by Nixta

This is the only time I think I may have experience something, but who knows, could've been nothing. But first, some background. When I was seventeen, I went through a hard time.

Taken Over by wai

It was about 3AM and for some reason I couldn't sleep.

First Night In New Zealand by Shenny

This happened to me on the night of 6th of Feb., when I arrived in Auckland, New Zealand. It was a lovely day, my dad and his business partner were sitting, looking for us in the crowd.

Little Farm Boy by bawa911

Last year, me and three of my school mates went to a little farm house owned by my grandfather's friend spotted near a town called Pairoa. It was quite a new house actually, nothing looked creepy about it. A day after we got to the house, we decided to help the old guy out on his farm. At lunch time...

Spiritualist by shadow

I am different from most people who see ghosts. I see them everyday of the week, every month of the year and so on. You may think this is a bit odd and that I should go and speak to a psychiatrist, but I have. She says it is a perfectly normal thing for me considering the fact that my mum and my gra...

Unwanted Guests by Savannah

Before our family friends knocked down their garage to build a cottage for my mum, sister and I to move into, their two kids (my age) told me about the planks of wood on the ground containing the body of a murdered woman.

Bed Time by Hayley

It was a school night and I had had some real rough times at school. I had just finished my dinner and went to have a bath to relax but just could not stop worrying about all my homework.
