Night Fright


When I was really young, I was sitting up in bed when I heard bumping and knocking in the walls. I was coming from upstairs to downstairs. My room was below the kitchen. I got frightened as little kids do and I lay down in bed with the covers pulled over my head. Nothing really strange happened for the first five minutes so I pulled my head from under the covers and then I heard the banging right in front of my door. Almost straight after that I heard a rapping sound just above my head. I closed my eyes and put my head on my pillows. About thirty seconds later it felt like someone put both there hands on either side of my pillows and pushed down on them heavily, and it had really cold breath that smelt of tobacco. I was five or six when this happened so nobody believed me.

About a month ago my parents were having an argument and when I went into the living room where they were arguing it was really cold and I felt really angry for no reason. As soon as my parents left I saw a black shadow in the middle of the living room. It stood at about seven foot tall and stank of stale smoke, and I heard a faint humming sound like a washing machine. Nothing has ever happened since.

[at] Ohiowatha: This is the name given by us, filipinos, to this kind of entity. Sorry for the late response for I'm too busy at work. 😜 one more thing, there are lots of people who have encountered this and not to shy to say, I'm one of them. I really like to share my own stories yet I cannot find the time to write them down, hence, I'm currently enjoying reading all your stories to kill my free time away... I'll share my stories as soon as I get internet connection on my new home. God bless you all!

That happened to me when I was little, well when I was seven I would hear banging, I would try to tell someone but they called me a retard. And seven years later I am still hiding my head under the covers for I see figures and they scare me. Its good to hear someone has the same situations like me. 😉

How long did this "thing" stand in your room. Also, I'd be hesitant to confidently assign any sort of label to this entity. I realize that Dunknown is only tryin to help, but, respectfully, I must assert that he/she has no idea what you saw and cannot accurately give you advice on what it was or how to deal with it. I'm not saying Dunknown is ignorant, I'm just saying that there's no way to know what you saw based on the vague description you provided.

On that note, how would one know that this "Kapre" thing lives in trees? There is actually NO empirical documentation on any supernatural entities, so to be able to categorize and give advice on something nobody understands seems misguided to me. Whatever that thing was, the last thing you want to do is disturb or anger it (if it's capable of such human-like emotions) and Christian modes of dealing with it might be, at least, useless and, at most, dangerous.

Let's try to remain objective at all times.

hello everyone! It's good to know that there's a site such as this here on the net. Been searching for this for some time. Anyway, henry16, that THING that you saw is called "Kapre"-a tall hairy guy who smokes big tobacco and smells like sewer. They usually lives in big trees. & yes, they do feed in negative energy that makes them grow stronger. Some are harmful and some acts as a good "guard" for the house. They can bring odd sickness or disturbances yet sometimes gives goodluck. Either way, just pray the "Our Father" loud and clear everytime you feel uneasy and always say "Amen" clearly. This will make a ward against harm. Goodluck to you. Nice stories by the way. I also got lots of stories I want to share but as of now... I'll just continue reading. 😜

It might be that you have some repressed anger that you might not even be aware of
toward a situation or persons. You said your parents were having a argument when you went into the room and then the event happened. This may be a dark entity feeding off of your repressed anger at your parents for fighting. Maybe try talking with them about your feelings. Getting it out in the open may leave the entity nothing to feed off of and it will go away. Keep a positive attitude (as much as possable) and Good Luck

In my opinion, there is an angry entity in your house. It shared its anger with you or perhaps you absorbed its emanating aura of anger that is why you felt angry for no reason.

I think it is an evil entity. Please becareful.

That seems like a very unnerving experience... It seems like some dark presence lurks among your house. Does your home have any history of other people living there, or fires?
