Latest Paranormal Experiences

What Was Annoying My Dog? by Blackkey

My story isn't the most horrible, eye-opening ghost story ever, But it's still something weird. I can't really explain it and I'm not sure if anyone can... Maybe if you're the next dog whisperer you may simply be able to ask my dog. Well good luck with that, I've had him for about 3 years now and I ...

Hello Mary: Story Up Until Now by HauntedChildUK

A long time ago when I lived in my home town, and I was just a little toddler, I used to always sit in my parent's bedroom and laugh at a certain corner, the truth was: I was looking at my grandmother, but the problem was that my grandmother died years before my birth. I wasn't the only one who has ...

My Brother And I by Nadiri

This happened when I was a little girl, around 4 years old. It was late at night and my brother visited my room because he wanted to play. So I got out of bed (very quiet because my parents were downstairs and I was supposed to sleep) and started playing with my brother. Then my parents came upst...

The Man In The Red Hat by CcLoves2Write

When I was about 3 years old (two years before my mother would explain to me why I had a lack of a father), I used to have my aunt watch me while my mom worked. According to her, one day I was outside on the swing set. I was singing, laughing, playing like any normal 3 year old. Except, that I seeme...

Emma by Honey_bee42699

When I was about 4 years old, I lived in a house owned by my grandfather. It was a small house, two bedrooms. And my little sister had just been born. I had a best friend, his name was Brett. He was two years older than me. Him and I often played in the front yard of that house, and since the entire...

Strange Feelings Ans Doppleganger? by aysen100

I remembered back in my old house in the rural Phillipines that I was always being watched by someone or something. I was told that as a kid I used to see paranormal things. I was waving at someone at the open field with apparently with nobody. Back home it didn't bother me about this strange fe...

Lights In The Dark by IzzyC

I don't know what these are, but I first began to see little lights around me when I was in high school in the 90's. Just to describe them, they only last for a second, and I mean I can look directly at them. They're usually white, but they can be any color (even black once, which looks like little ...

The Curious Incident Of The Cat In The Night-time by IzzyC

I believe I recently had a paranormal experience, though I honestly can't be 100% positive. You'll have to tell me what you think. I live about two blocks away from a 24-hour CVS pharmacy in West Philadelphia and it's not too much hassle to run over there for random snacks or articles at all hour...

The Big One by Wish-Not

I left my last story "Just a Handful..." with the late night visit. Whatever it was came into my room and stopped on the other side of my bed. This story will pick up from there just a few weeks later. I had been on my guard since the last visit. It was the first time I felt threatened/scared. At...

Walls by depitong

I was 12 years old when I first noticed something weird in my house. My parents and grandparents often told me stories about how they experienced paranormal activities but I didn't thought I will witness something myself. I was having a sleepover with my friend and we were alone. Everything seeme...

House Wight? by SparklinBurgndy

I live in an enormous old farmhouse in West Central Indiana. The house is surrounded by 2000 acres of grain fields, interspersed with old family cemeteries. I outlined it with more detail in my story 'Not So Quiet Neighbors'. Someone asked in the comments of that story if the activity could have ...

Cruising With The Boys by JohnnyG55

A few months ago I got my provisional license, and my dad gave me his old 1989 Ford Fairlane. Everything was fine, and I was enjoying my new-found freedom. I decided to try to spruce the car up a little, so I went to the closest wreckers to try and find some parts for my car. I wandered around...

Haunted Basement by XxVikkixX93

During one summer it was me my older sister and my cousin Eric. He had come down for the summer and the basement was our little hangout at the time. We were just downstairs in the basement playing cards and talking then out of no where everybody had gotten quiet and I did not know why. A second ...

Scary Experience At Tipaimukh Road by mryogi

Friends, this is my first submission to this site. I'm a doctor working as a Medical Officer at a village known as Thanlon, which is 150km from CCPur, in Manipur State.

Small Body, Big Soul by notjustme

The Forgotten Man by luisma

Is It Poltergeist Activity? by doe-eyedharu

This is a story which I have been hearing from a very young age. It was experienced by my maternal uncle. First of all, he is a very bold person. When there was a rumour of ghost sightings around my house, he was awake all night to find out. He never believed in ghosts, until he had this particular ...

The Shadow Of The Family by lornadixon95

I was around 16 at the time of my experience, and many people within my family had already had an encounter with some sort of paranormal activity. For example according to my brother one night he was awoken by a strong icy gust of wind, so strong that he was unable to lift his head off his pillow or...

Unexplainable Experience by 21914

So, my friend and I were bored and he told me about an abandoned hospital in my town. I am a big fan of ghost hunting shows and I believe in all of the paranormal stuff. We entered the building pretty nervous because, I mean come on, its an abandoned hospital after all. We were recording our whol...

Mysterious Hauntings On Summit Drive by kingofstrings92

Apologies in advance for the length of this post. I figured it would be best to get my whole story out there. Some of what I will say will seem outlandish, but when I say my house would give Amityville a run for it's money, I wish I was kidding. As I write this, I'm currently in my 20s, but this ...
