Black Shadow Figure

When I was 17 years old I had this encounter and I’m still trying to figure out what happened I’m 30 now. I was sleeping one night in my bedroom which is at the back of the house but you can look out and see the kitchen from my bedroom.

My mother who is a nurse and works all kinds of crazy hours was at  work and because she comes home late I leave the light on above the hood of the stove so once she enters the house she can see where she is going without having to turn all the lights on in the house. It was late, around 2:30 at night, I was sound asleep in my room and for some strange reason I woke up out of my sleep  and sat straight up in my bed which is kind of strange because I am a heavy sleeper. I had my door open in my room and …

Shadow Person by the Fish Tank Light

Okay, here goes. You’ve seen me comment numerous times on this site and yes I do live in a very old house that was a farm back when it was new. It’s really very simple and nothing to get all excited about. The oldest part of the house is the living room. Just before this room goes into the next, there are two tall square pillars with ledges going to the outer walls. On one of those ledges is a 20 gallon fish tank. I have an old bakelight headboard lamp hanging on the far side of the tank. The tank needs a cleaning, so the water is somewhat murky.

I’m sitting about five feet from the tank on the couch and you can see the light illuminate the front wall, where the door and picture window is. Out of the corner of my eye, I see the door darken a bit. I glanced over and amazingly, a very tall …

Mister No Name the Shadow

Now some of you have read my other story ‘Shadow Only Comes Out in the Storm‘ well I was wrong. Now it’s a week before Christmas, it’s hot and my sisters and dad are in the pool… while mum and I are wrapping presents. Now we all know what Christmas is like; Christmas tree going up, present wrapping, school holidays and much more, little did I know there was much more then I thought.

I was in my parent’s room wrapping my mum and dad’s presents when I hear the door open… I get up and look up the hall and see something leaving the house, so I slowly walk up the hallway and look out to the pool and everyone is in there; mum, dad Charliee and Tay. I see the storm going “here we go again, another visit from mister no name” I said to myself.

So what I thought to myself as I looked up …

Shadowy Figure in the Bedroom

Hello all, After reading all the stories people have put up I decided to recall if I had anything past memories or “hauntings”.  Now I’m not a full skeptic but most of the stories I read I tend to think are made up. (Most likely because I don’t really want to experience it first hand). But enough of that and more to my own experience.

My memory begins living in my old house in North Mankato, Minnesota. I was around 10 or 11 at the time, I’m currently 20 now. I cannot recall exactly when I began to see this shadowy figure in my room, but from when I first saw it till the time my family moved I saw it every night at exactly 1 am. I shared a bunk bed with my older brother, who always wanted top bunk, which left me with the bottom.

One night I had woken up, something that was usual for me.  I …

Learning the Truth About the Shadows

About four months after my father died, my mum moved us back to Louisiana. From the time I was two months old until a few months before my fifth birthday, I grew up living with my mum and grandparents. Doesn’t sound so strange yet, right? I only wish.

When I was four, I woke up from a dead sleep. I had no clue who or what had woken me up, but when I looked towards the door I could see what I thought was a man. Even now, I can still remember exactly what I saw: a tall, masculine shaped silhouette, wearing what looked like a black cape and fedora. The person looked almost as though he was peering around the doorway to see what was in the room. For some reason, I wasn’t scared and almost felt like he was smiling at me. I blinked, trying to figure out who the person was, but when I opened my eyes …

The Shadow Lady

This happened when I was about 15 or 16 I’m now 25.

It all started when me and my mate were in my sisters room listening to music. We were talking and having a laugh when suddenly the music started going down. We looked at each other and laughed not thinking anything of it. I turned the music back up and we carried on talking only the music started turning down again. We looked at the stereo and the saw that the knob on the stereo for the volume was moving and as the volume was going down we got a bit freaked out and moved away from the stereo, as far as possible.

At this point we were sitting in the corner of my sisters room only then we saw the shadow of what looked like a lady on the door. We thought it was someone messing around so I called my mum and heard no reply. My dog …

Shadow Only Comes Out in Storms

When I was about 8 – 9 years old I’d moved states we had lived in our new house for about 4 weeks before a summer storm hit, it came out of nowhere I freaked when it hit.

Mum, dad, my sisters and I were eating dinner I’d just finished suddenly the lights went out I walked in to the kitchen and tried to turn them back on and nothing “mum the lights are out” I said “can you get the matches then” she asked me. I grabbed the matches from the kitchen bench and suddenly BANG coming from the end of the hall way I looked down the hall way but nothing, nothing was they, mum came to see what I  was freaking about she took the matches off me and said it was nothing.

Later that night my baby sister Charliee was crawling are the living room, I pick her up and put her in a little bed …

Black Shadow Figure with Red Eyes

Right now I’m 18 but back when I was 15 I think I may have had a very scary experience with a shadow figure. It was daytime and my sister and I were in our room with the lights out to see a glow in the dark bracelet (we have aluminum windows so the room gets very dark).

I was sitting on the floor facing towards the doorless closet at the foot of the bed while my sister was in front of me sitting in the middle of the bed. Out of nowhere I look towards the corner where the closet and adjoining wall meet and I saw a huge black figure coming towards me. It scared me a lot and it made it worse when I got the sensation of it wanting to harm me. I started to kick and curse at it while it got closer. At that moment my sister felt like someone grabbed her by the …

Shadow People and Sleep Paralysis

I’m in my mid 30s. About two years ago I moved in with my girlfriend to a house, right away I felt like if something was following me around. It was a two story home and all the time as I left early to work I would get goose bumps all over my body all the way to the front door.

Also on approximately 10 times I had sleep paralysis, but never thought of anything it was scary at times but I would pray in my mind and it would go away rather quickly.

On one day as I was leaving to work as I was going down the stairs I didn’t felt that presence following me. I felt so relieved, but as I was about to open the door the goose bumps flared up from head to toes and as I opened the door I noticed a dark human figure looking right into the trunk of my car. We …

Encounters with the Hat Man

When I was in foster care in 2007, I was sleeping like a normal child would early in the morning, but for some very odd reason, I woke up. When I opened my eyes, I looked up and that’s when I saw a dark figure standing next to my bed, it freaked me out so much, I threw the covers over my head to cover this up, I stayed that way for two minutes, when I felt it was safe, I took it off and it was gone.

Something that was scarier that same moment, when it disappeared, I looked next to me and I swore I saw my little sister lying right next to me, smiling, I repeated the cover again, when I took it off, she was gone as well. After those two mini-events happened, I turned over facing the wall and fell asleep again.

The second encounter was my third day back home. I was in the …

The Shadow Hat Man Krue’s Ghost

My family moved to Hamilton, Montana in 2004. We moved into a brand new duplex on a quiet cul-de sac and lived there peacefully for about 3 months.

For reasons I can’t explain, I was always afraid of the entrance to the crawl space that was located in the master bedroom closet. I hated to go down in there and the few times I did go to get some of the things we had stored there, I would make my husband go with me. He wasn’t at all uneasy about it.

Well, about 3 months after we moved in my husband was called out of town for an extended job in another state. He was gone for 3 weeks at a time and home for only 4 days in between these periods. Very shortly after he left the first time, my son and I began to experience strange things. For one, I noticed that no matter how many times I …

Strange Human Like Shadow

I personally don’t know how to begin my story but I was standing outside my house on the walkway up to my porch at night (like I do every night), taking my dog out to use the bathroom.

As I was waiting for my dog to do her business, I noticed something moving from the corner of my eye. I swung my head to my right and saw a human figure’s shadow that reached the top of my neighbors second floor window.

As I unconsciously ran to my dog, picked her up and flew up the porch stairs, I noticed it began to walk towards the backyard. In the midst of me noticing this, I yanked open the screen door, and ran into the house.

Now to go into more detail: my neighbor’s house and mine are both two stories tall and a good 15 feet or so apart (I’m not going to go outside and measure it). In between …
