Latest Paranormal Experiences

My Daughter's Experience by Angmorr

I worked at Peter W. Thompson Academy, an accelerated high school for students who had trouble thriving in a regular school setting. There were lots of students with behavioral problems, serious family issues, failing subjects, and many were teen parents. It was a last resort for many kids. Peter W....

Creature In The Woods by Curiosity13

This happened to me and my friends in 1988, but we were actually just talking about it again the other day and I thought I would share it to see if anyone has a thought as to what it could have been. To give some background this story involves myself, my boyfriend (Andy), his cousin (Mark) and h...

Hollenbeck Park Ghost by sabrina_25

A little history. When my dad was young I'm not sure exactly what age I'm guessing about 8 or 9, he would be lying in bed ready to go to sleep and from any dark, shadowy corner a woman dressed in all black with a veil over her head would float over next to him kneel and whisper in his ear. He never...

My Grandmama Is With Me by BriLovsHerChurchMama

This story happened when I was 12, so almost 5 years ago (I'm almost 17). My grandmama, as I had been told because I never got to meet her she died in 1950 something, was a strict church woman she didn't tolerate stupid things happening in church. Now to my story. One day me and my friend had sta...

My Ghostly Neighbour by Valkyrie114

Back in my hometown Terengganu, Malaysia is pretty breathless. The state that I come from is half country and city sort of feel. There are haunted buildings all over the place, depending on the age of the area and its history too. It's a laid back state, hence a great place for a holiday. But the Ma...

Something Walking On The Roof At Night by RocketSledder77

I live in far Western Texas in the middle of a large town/small city, between New Mexico and Mexico. I was awoken on an early morning in mid/late July 2011 around 3:30am and heard at least three "creatures" on my roof. One that seemed to be running around in circles over living room which is the roo...

Paranormal Experiences In Bristol, England by Flowerpot87

I would like to share a few experiences I have had over the years. In my life I have lived in 5 different houses; 2 have had no kind of activity whilst 3 have been very active indeed. My first experience with the paranormal was when I was 7 years old. My parents sent me to a local Sunday school-...

2nd Generation Paranormal Issues? by metvelle

First let me start my story when I was a child, I'm sorry this may get kind of long...lol. I grew up in a very active house, not an old house by any means but still VERY active. We bought the house in about 1987 or so when I was 4-5. The house was built in 1984 and was in a nice neighborhood. I ...

Mean Spirit Or Demon? by ifihadyoux

Just a little bit of background before I begin. This is my first time submitting a story on here so please keep it nice and professional. I will welcome all opinions and suggestions but nothing negative. This takes place between the years of 2008 - 2011. I am mashing up everything in the house into ...

Basement Haunting by sharingiscaring

Before I begin, I would like to apologize for my terrible grammar, the length of this story and whatever else. Here goes... I use to stay in a rent out basement (with my older sister who comes and goes very often, so that means I'm mostly alone) in Annandale, VA. The basement has all utilities pr...

Ghost Cat Story by tyler45rt

So for a while I had two cats, one was orange and fluffy (Gus) and another which had a tiger pattern (Elmo). Gus was an outdoor cat and spent most of his time outdoors. Elmo hardly ever did anything, he would sleep on my bed all day long. About 4-6 times a week I'd see a cat, but not the whole th...

Little Room by champion

I would like to start by giving some history on the home. In 1998 I bought a 96 model double wide that was bought new by an elderly couple. The sales agent said that they lived in it for a few months and one of them died and the other was placed in a nursing home. I do not know if they died in the h...

Katrina Ghost by john6962

First and foremost, let me say that I have never really been a believer in the supernatural. It's not that I don't think that there's more to life than what we can physically see, it's just that I've never really had a ghostly encounter and I'm just like most ordinary people, going about my business...

The Shack by valkricry

Those of you who have read my other submissions know I generally tell about guardians or those WTH moments that leave me scratching my head and perplexed. I tend to concentrate on the good and leave the scary to others. People have wondered in the comments if I have ever dealt with a not nice sp...

The Late Visitor by geneen

I used to work in a nursing home as an evening receptionist. One autumn evening, around 7:30 pm, some of the nurses had finished their shifts and were waiting for rides home. One nurse stopped to talk to me and then she was distracted. She asked me why the front entrance doors were opening if no one...

The Man In A Suit by Phoenix83

This story took place in San Diego, CA. My family and I lived in this house for 6 years, and it was there that I experienced most of the horrifying paranormal happenings of my childhood. The history of the house is fairly disturbing and may explain why the energy was so strong. A man lived alone...

Random Noises by notjustme

Lately there has been small things happening at home and at work. In my story "Tantalize Me" I mention my dear friend who is no longer with us. I have a feeling it's him. He passed away over a year ago and up until recently I haven't had the chance to see him yet. I often see my passed loved ones af...

The Borewell by tanscaredofghosts

Greetings to all! This is another story. This is a real incident experienced by my mama (maternal uncle.) The story goes as follows. This incident happened in year 2010, when I was in 9 std. Like many Indian kids even I was spending my summer vacation in my hometown. Now let me give a brief infor...

Did You Start The Dishwasher? by hippiesiren

This happened yesterday, and I was not the only person who experienced part of this. I was sitting in the living room watching a movie with my family. My father began looking around and finally asked, "Is something running?" I glanced over my shoulder into the kitchen and answered, "It is just the d...

Haunted Military by SamuiLover

This experience happened to me back in 2012 whilst I was running the pharmacy at Headley Court, the UKs main rehabilitation unit for injured servicemen. The pharmacy was a very small room and I used to run it single handed, so there was only ever me in the room, except if I was dealing with a patie...
