When I was 15 my best friend lived on Nowhere road in Athens Ga. It was 1995 or 1996. I had just bought the white zombie album with more human than human on it new in the store.
We took a boombox down to this creek where there was a log we could sit on to listen to it. There was a "path" of sorts with two fairly high walls of blackberry brambles that went a good distance away and curved up the hill into some trees. Basically we jammed out looking down this blackberry tunnel.
My friend stood about six feet in front of me facing the same direction as me, as I sat on the log with the boombox. About halfway through the song "super charger heaven" while I was watching him spin a stick around like a kungfu master I noticed movement beyond him.
I see what appears to be a tall, thin, completely black and featureless man shaped...man.
It had very long arms and legs and seemed like it was creeping up on us. Its back was kind of bent and arched and its arms and legs also were bent as if it was sneaking.
So I see this thing and I think "holy crap I am going crazy. I'm hallucinating."
my friend suddenly just stops moving and completely drops his "bow staff".
I think "oh crap. Its real. He sees it too".
My attention is on my friend for a split second and when I look back where the thing was - its gone. My friend turns to me and says "so...I'd really like to go inside now" I replied that that was a good idea so we walked very calmly to this little divider fence we had to jump that separated his yard from the woods.
As soon as we cleared the fence we bolted to the trailer where we sat up all night in a closet under a blanket with flashlights and a machete.
I don't know about him but I never ever went over that fence into the woods there again. The whole event seemed very unreal. It all lasted maybe 10 seconds.
I swear this is true. I think about it at least once a week.
