Were They Just Dreams Or Something More? by 8-bitDemigod

On the evening of August 8th, 2022 around 6pm, my evening turned bad when I started having terrible lower abdominal pain, lower back pain, and pressure out of nowhere.

Graveyard Follower by Skadus

I've never been one to be too afraid to tell people my stories. Seeing paranormal activity runs in my family as much as some of us don't like it.

I Think It Followed Me Home by Aslipablo

A part of my night routine has been to read a book or watch a series/movie before sleeping.

New Store? It's Haunted by Dergato

I worked on the 3700 block 0f Las Vegas Boulevard for about 4 and a half years. I didn't work for the casino itself, but a third party vendor. We faced the fountains.
