Tomten On Holiday? by Manafon1

A couple of years ago I submitted an account to YGS with the somewhat sensationalistic title, "Demonic Voices In The Night".

Spirit Image - Sumner Drew by Roadster40

I think you'll find this quite interesting. You can find it on the "Findagrave site for (Sumner Drew) in Orono,Maine-in Penobscot County."

Experience In A Haunted House by mrmonty

Back in 1983-84 I was attending a prep school up in Maine when I saw something that could not be reasonably explained. The school was started back in 1908 but before that the lands used to be a farm. I was housed in one of the dorms, Mass Hall, which was originally built in 1850 as the farm house. W...

We Both Heard It by thelioness08

When I was about ten years old, my mother and her husband moved us about three towns over to an apartment that was like none I'd ever seen. It had four floors, and three apartments per floor.

The Glowing Man by jinzydraso

Lay Back by pjs1977

Mounting Evidence by Vember

So you know how a lot of people come to the conclusion that they're being haunted when a few minor things happen? They hear a slight knocking... Maybe something is misplaced, and all of the sudden it must be a spirit from beyond trying to make itself known. Most would consider that jumping to conclu...

The Cabinets by Vember

My name is Sean and this happened to me almost 2 years ago now. This took place in Bangor, Maine in my old apartment with my fiancee. The place was definitely haunted. One thing about the place was the bathroom mirror. You would get zoned out if you stared at yourself too long and eventually your fa...

Playing The Card Game by Sam222

First of all, I would like to say that there is this game just called "The card game", I wouldn't really consider it a game though, because game have objectives.

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...

Am I Crazy? Sreiously? by Sam222

This is a collection of a bunch of weird events, that if I explained to someone they would laugh and think that I'm crazy. 1) I think that this is really crazy, I don't really believe that it happened but It must've.

The Pale Face by Sam222

This story is going to be short there isn't much to it, but I'm not sure what I was seeing. This happened several times and they were all pretty much the same. So I'll describe just one of the times because I only remember (that's how much similar they all were), but I know it happened more than onc...

The Figure, The Touches, And The Door Lock by Sam222

This is just a small collection of events that I feel belong in the same story. I have multiple things I'm going to post, and I'm trying to group them up so I don't have to post too many separate pieces. Before I begin I might as well give you a quick explanation of upstairs. So you walk upstairs ...

An Out Of Body Point Of View by Sam222

This event occurred around 5 1/2 years ago when I used to live Bridgeton. I am writing this because I'm not really sure what happened, why it happened, what the explanation is, and what this is called. It gives me a weird feeling thinking about it today, but as it happened I thought it was pretty co...

For starters, after this I have become a firm believer in the paranormal. I'm now 14 and have had many experiences. My first one was when I was 8 or 9 years old.

Young Girl In My Room by Smokex12

I'm not proud of what happened in this story, but it did happen. It all started when my brother and I were fighting (again), and my mom was yelling at both of us to stop.

They Just Need To Learn Boundaries by Mannerizms

Do ghosts have boundaries? You'd think they do! But I guess when you're dead they've lost caring? Anyways this does lead to an experience...

I come from a very religious family that does not disregard the existence of ghosts, demons, or angels. I don't scare easily; I have seen and heard strange things for as long as I can remember.

Stolen Sleeping Bag At Grandmothers House by sbolduc

This story isn't really scary, but it is so strange to me. My grandparents built a house in Maine when I was about 12 years old.

The Minute Man by Jennifer40

The encounter I am about to relay happened when I was 5 years old.

My True Experience with an Incubus by Hestia

I feel some trepidation in writing about this or speaking about it to anyone--for fear of sounding mad. So far I have only shared it in brief e-mails with a Shamanic healer friend of mine and a liberal psychiatrist friend. But it feels like writing about it may be healing, so here goes... About 6...

Are There Really Ghosts in my Basement? by purplegerbil96

Haunted House in Maine by sandy

Once I lived in this house in a small town in Maine, it was an older house. I do not know any history behind it and I most likely never will, but it was an older house.
