I previously came to this site to look for answers about a man in a trench coat, with a hat, real smokey looking but appears more of a shadow with red eyes. I researched him to find that I am not the only one who has seen him/it. I know he goes by Hat Man.
Well anyway here is my story, well part of it anyway. I was 12 when I first saw him. I was in the passenger side of the car, my mom was driving and I was half asleep when I noticed this figure standing in the road, same description I gave before. What bugged me is out of all the vehicles driving by, it felt as though his gaze was completely directed towards me. But in the instant I saw him he was gone and all that was left was a small cloud of black smoke. I asked my mom if she had seen him but she had no clue what I was talking about.
I thought maybe I was imagining things until I started seeing him at night in my doorway just watching me. And it felt as though it fed off my fear, like the more I saw it the closer he would get to me.
I knew I wasn't crazy, though, because eventually my brother started to see him and it gradually got worse. Along with him, I was seeing other spirits but he is where it all started and I don't think it helps that I live in front of a graveyard.
But this kept getting worse until one night everything went to hell. Stuff was getting thrown at us and every evil spirit I'd ever seen came out at us at once including "Hat Man" and the only thing we could do was read God's prayer from the Bible.
Somehow it stopped it all which I'm glad, but that was 3 years ago now I am 18 and I have just recently started seeing him again...
