Red Eyed Demon in My Room

Posted on August 11, 2010

First of all I would like to say that I�m not really good at writing stories in general, but I thought I really needed to share what happened to me a few years ago. The paranormal activity that started happening was when my mother and father decided to buy a new house. This decision was made because the old house was too crowded because me and my brother and parents and children (who came over ever weekend to sleep and sometimes in the week) were living in 3 bedroom house and we needed a 4 bedroom. The house that my Mother seen looked to good to be true, in a beautiful part of Wales UK the outside was wonderful as well as the inside and it also boasted a lovely back garden that was all done out with decking. The house was way under the normal price of house�s in that area, me and Mother went to visit it and the owner. The lady explained that she wanted to sell the house in a hurry because her dad was sick and she wanted to move in with him to look after him, the story sounded true enough but I a feeling that she was keeping something from us. I went upstairs and checked the bedrooms, and the room that I really liked was an ensuite and the daughter of the house owned that room, she seemed friendly enough and a few yrs younger than me who at the time was 26 years. The deal took a few months to go through but before we even agreed the final fee we visited the house again and this time the family inside had all left the home for the Grandfathers house even before they sold the house. All the stuff inside the house like furniture and mirrors and stuff would be left behind as told by us by the owner on that day, and to be honest alarm bells starting ringing in my head but I did not say anything to my Mother because she loved the house.

Finally all deeds were ours and we moved in the new house��

The first day that we moved in something strange happened in my brother�s attic room he went upstairs with me and is girlfriend and light bulb just came crashing down for no reason at all and just went past is head. We were quite freaked about it because there was no reason for that to happen as there was no wind or anything to move it in that way, we just forgot about that and just tried to get on with moving in the house.

The house was fine for at least about a year and no occurrences happened during that time except I was becoming a recluse and would always stay in my room during this period. Before we moved in I used to interact with my family at meal times and talk to them about my problems. I had a superb relationship with my Mother and would tell her everything that happened during my days, at this particular time I did not speak� much with my Mother which was strange. I went through an incredible depression and felt as if something was wrong with me and could not take my life and the way it was going. This continued for quite some time.

Until one night I woke up in my room and felt as if something was just watching me in my room, the room felt really warm and it just felt like there was a presence there just staring at me. I looked around the room but saw nothing this was about 12:00 am at night. I thought nothing of it and went back to sleep. I later woke up at 2 – 2:30 am again felt as if I was being watch I turned over to the other side of the bed and saw a figure standing next to my bed! It was the top half of an old women and it was misty so I could not really see her features, I was struck with terror for a second and then the image went away in the space of a few seconds. The episode did freak me out but I was trying to rationalize it as maybe just a hallucination or just a speck in my eye. I got up from bed and washed my face and proceeded to go back to sleep.

I woke up the next morning and to be honest tried to totally forget what had just happened the day before and got on with my day as normal. I never told anyone in my house what had happened because I did not want to scare anybody and to be honest I did not think they would believe me. I went to work and everything was fine I did still feel a little freaked out but I tried to blank it out of my mind. I returned home and had some food but felt really tired that afternoon so I decided to go to bed early that night.

This is where my story starts getting FREAKY����.

Well after my food and watching some TV I turned in for the night at around 10:00 pm. For some reason I woke up at 12:00 am again and felt that same feeling that something was watching, at this point I was getting scared because I thought I would see that figure by the side of my bed again. I decided to try and be brave and not go in my kids spare room and just turned to the other side of the bed and went asleep again. I woke up again at 2 – 2:30 am and this time I felt even worse than before I was sweating cold on my head and really felt something was watching me! I turned over to the other side of the bed and to my HORROR It was up on the top of my ceiling a Demon like face held up on a wooden stake, the demon like face looked wooden and was smiling at me and had sharp teeth for some reason it reminded me of Darth Maul in Star Wars it looked similar to that. The stake was moving by its own rising until the head was at the top of my ceiling It looked malignant and was staring at me with glowing Red Eyes, the eyes looked the only thing that was not wooden and they were looking at me as if mocking me and I was frozen there and could not scream or move!

I thought the ordeal was not going to end because the head was just staying there I had hoped it would disappear and that it was all in my head but this thing was not going! Finally what seemed like a life time later it must have only been a one minute or so the head started disappearing but to my horror the head and the stick disappeared but the eyes stayed there still watching me, by this time I was totally freaked out and still could not move. The eyes started making they way over to me and were on the ceiling hovering over my head looking straight into my eyes I felt as if this thing Demon whatever it was, was trying to posses me or just totally scare me out of my wits!

It finally disappeared and I got out of bed totally scared shitless I took my cushion and went to sleep in my Kids room. I did not tell anybody that night because I was to scared to even talk about it, I went into my kids room because I have never felt anything in there and finally got to sleep after a long time of just being petrified.

I woke up that morning and felt totally drained of any energy and decided I had to tell my parents what had happened. I explained to them the 2 times that paranormal things happened and at first they were skeptical but I eventually managed to convince them because they could see the fear in my eyes that I was not making this story up. Throughout my life I have never seen anything paranormal before and I was not prone to making up stories either I think that�s why they believed me so quickly. I did not want to stay at my house that night or forever so I decided to sleep in my Grandmothers house the night later, I sleep there and worried this thing would follow me but I seen nothing in her house that night.

The day after I decided to go back to my house because I did not want to let this thing win because I wanted to be home and not away from my family. I came to a conclusion that this Demon or Spirit whatever it was, was feeding off my negative energy was trying to change my character and maybe possess me. I don�t think it could go as far as possessing me because I was a catholic and believe in GOD and Jesus, It was trying to make me alienate myself from the people who were close to me the most. The next� day I came back to the house I decided to sleep in my kids room for good because I did not want to move back in that room to sleep, I still spent time in the room because I had my PC xbox360 and PS3 there I was not freighted to be in there I juts did not want to sleep there. This is why I think that lady really wanted to rush to sell the house and that they left even before they sold it.

Because of those experiences I decided to read the New Testament to see if it would help me battle this entity and read it several times and let Jesus into my life from there on in. I went to church every week and asked my priest to bless all my house and he did a few months after the events, all was fine I never seen anything in that room again and if I was scared as long as I prayed I had strength from my Lord Jesus who protected me at all times.

I don�t want to keep on going but something started happening again when I had my girlfriend come to live in my parent�s house. I will give details of that in the future but first I would like an opinion from you all about what happened to me and what you think it was because I really think it was a Demon but would like input from other people who are more expert than me on these matters.

    Well, the owners wanted out of that house fast and now you know why the price was so much lower than other homes in the area… I would do research or even ask neighbors… you may be surprised at what they may know. You were SO RIGHT to go back to church, read your Bible and have the house blessed!

  2. The Undertaker says:

    Hey that was a really scary event that happen to you…feel bad that they tricked you into buying this house that sounded to good to be true. I will have to agree with Pat and do some investigation on that house…when was it built, who were the original owners, etc. Has your parents experience anything you have regarding the demon like shadows? Great story…

  3. Pasquale says:

    Thanks for the comments guys:)

    I think i might do some investigating on the house, the only problem i have is that i still live at the house and dont want to scare myself further if i find something else.

    But if I never do it I will never know………

    Maybe i will do some when I leave my parents house and get my own with my Girlfirend.

  4. Shadow says:

    just ignore them because if they are demons the more you acknowledge their existence the more powerful the become. demons also have an affect of increasing negative emotions, erratic behavior, altered personalities and other negative sometimes suspenseful feeling. depend on your self and those around you for your light because humans are both light and darkness use your light to fight. (note: salt cant help because people relate demons with sulfur because they think of hell as below of the earth has sulfur below its crust and the only reason why they use salt is because of a chemical reaction that occurs!)

  5. AnNa says:

    good story.that is upsetting that they sold you that time when there is a house thats not to much dont take it.,or do the research.has anything happened to your parents?well im glad nothing bad happened,but if you say something started after your girlfriend moved in maybe it needs something more then a priest.ghost hunter.i dont know.thanks for the story.keep us updated if anything changes.

  6. Suzi says:

    Oh my god I problely would have freaked out more then you I mean I had some experence with ghosts but not a demon!!! Just pray every day no matter what and I compleatly believe you.

  7. jk says:

    next time you see or feel anything just call out loud or in your head the name above all names,
    Jesus, and it will stop immediately.

  8. Pasquale says:

    Thanks for more comments guy�s

    This is for Shadow: I know what you mean when you say these things feed of negative energy because the negativity that I suffered for that 1 year and a half was terrible. I was wondering that if I used salt where would I put it in my Bedroom? And do you think it will work?

    For Anna: Thanks for the comment, nothing as happened to my parents but tbh I think they don�t want to speak or believe it anymore because we still live there. So I don�t mention it to them anymore because they get mad?, my mother said she felt something but would not say anymore.

    For Suzi: I know what you mean Suzi I was totally freaked out because I have never seen anything in my life?. I have heard things in my Cousins house and lots of occasions(I think their house was haunted) but I never seen anything.

    • AnNa says:

      i understand some parents dont believe but if something did happen and you ask they should say yes i heared or i saw whatever it is.maybe your mom didnt want to say because your dad was around.if that is true you should ask when hes not around.thanks for commenting me back.

    • Shadow says:

      salt was just something superstitious with the salt because really from all of the things in the world why salt?

      • GirlRacer says:

        Salt is used as a purifier in everyday life. Carry it over, it purifies the home, and anything unclean. Including malevolent entities.

  9. Joe says:

    Do not acknowledge this entity. The more you do, the more you are inviting it in. Don’t try communicating with it such as using a ouija board or talking to it. This entity or demon sounds like it’s trying to get the best of you. It wants to play off your fears and negative emotions because it’s giving it energy which will in turn manifest itself into more of a threat. I would recommend getting a blessing throughout the home from your local priest.

  10. Dakota says:

    hey it was a nice story. But I have always had something paranormal with me at all times ever since (and this might shock u) my PET RAT died. But I had always had a demon fowling me and I ignored it didn’t go away I even had me blessed and it didn’t work he still there and now I just accept it as a part of my life so ya some times it don’t matter how much faith u have they won’t go away.

    Thanks for your time

  11. Deltha says:

    I haven’t had many paranormal experiences but I have done a lot of research and the like, and I find are that demons are annoying, decieving, lying things who have pushed their boundaries and the best thing to do is pray for protection against these forces (it’s in the lords prayer). You will find that they are no match for God and you can actually rebuke them and tell them to go away. A good book I recommend is “Our eyes fixed on Jesus: A sideways look at spiritual warfare.” it’s an interesting read and could really help you.
    Good luck.

  12. Ben Gessel says:

    I’d say this definitely was a demon. I have my own religious, etc. views on the supernatural, but suffice to say, the devil and his minions have power to “bruise our heels”, but we have power to “crush his head”. Basically, the single most important deterrent to the powers of the evil one is calling upon the Lord for protection and strength, especially during situations such as this one. It even helps if you think the prayer, if you are too scared to speak. The lord will strengthen you, and will give you the courage to speak his holy name. Demons cannot dwell where the power of God is, and so the closer you become to God, the more protected you will be against the evil one.
    Know this. Demons are acutely aware of who we are spiritually and personality-wise. Never let them get the better of your judgement. That is what they want. Do whatever you can to chase darkness away whenever it encraches on you, good, uplifting music ALWAYS helps, as does light and being strengthened by others you are with.

  13. Nappyboy says:


    I feel your pain. A family member of mine killed themself and since then I see things. It a small shadow but I see it everywhere. You’re not alone, a lot of us suffer, I’d publish my story but I am afraid too.

    • e-payne says:

      nappyboy, u should publish it, i had the exact same fears but i did and got a few answers to questions i have had for a long time, my story wasnt good at all, not descriptive enough and stuff and that made a few think i was lyin bout it, but dont let ppl like that stop u from gettin answers to stuff u need to kno, remember, knowledge is power

  14. SinsAngel says:

    I can tell you from experance that even ignoring them no always do they go away some times there is a reason they are there and sometimes spirits and demonds are attatched to somthing or someone. There might me something about the house that holds them there and yes they feed off negative energy and can cause ppl to act diff not always by ” possessing them” keep your faith and keep going to your church the stronger you show them you are the easyer it will be to fight it. As for things starting when u moved your girlfriend in it’s someone new and they will feed into that

  15. MikeM says:

    Good story! but what part of wales was this?

  16. Anonymous says:

    Time heals all wounds, it is said (sounds preachy) but the more distance you put between yourself and this experience will do wonders, if you don’t incurr any reoccurances. I mean, you need to emmerse yourself in the daytime, things you’re interested in, your kids, good things, life-affirming things. Earplugs at night. Maybe a bit of meditation on God and a beautiful green field before you go to bed. I’ve been there, that demon next to your bed, over your bed, making noises, dropping things – it’s not fair – you’re alive in this realm and he/she is not and has NO RIGHT to pester you. Get happy, get strong – Lord’s Prayer, any favorite Psalm – they’ve worked for me. CONFIDENCE and love dissuade these entities. Here’s some **key** advice – Get Rid Of Everything In Your House that deals with the paranormal, with exception of the Bible. I mean EVERYTHING. Got a crystal goblet? A five-pointed star ornament? A book on the paranormal. THROW THEM OUT. They are portals, because of your attachment/ thoughts on them. Worked for me. You’re in my prayers. -C

    • GirlRacer says:

      How do you communicate with this thing, as thats what you need to curb.

      • Jonathan Coonrod says:

        I used an Ouija Board I made. It was just cardboard…and the glass top of a watch. He made me spill my blood all over the eye and half the board. I later threw the board away.

  18. shelley says:

    my boyfriend recently told me that he has had an experience with a demon and his description of it sounds a lot like yours. i have been trying to figure out what it is he saw it one night when he was playing a computer game in his dads study and said he was so terrified he looked away immediately and could not bring himself to leave or look in that direction for hours though he had finished playing his game. he said he has experienced this encounter before me and him started dating and no he said he sees shadows sometimes and feels like something is following him. he told me not to worry and that he believes the devil is trying to get to him because he has never been so happy in his life than he is now…i still cant help be worried for him and i dont understand what it is exactly.

    • Elise Gingerich says:

      sometimes I don’t know What to Believe about This Life or This supposed Reality that We supposedly All live in or not and How Does One Really Know If Demon Beings or even Holy Beings Even supposedly Exist?! strange isn’t It?? It’s like This Life or This Reality could Just Not suddenly Be! like a Dellusion or something I was going to say Not suddenly Be Here but what If there Is no Here?? much like a There?? really strange isn’t It??

  19. J.E. Davis says:

    In october, 1992, me, my wife and and 5 month old daughter moved into a house with some friends. Halloween night it all started out fine, but before the night was over, little did we realize the nightmare had just begun. In the basement, you could see a shadow figure with red eyes follow you, but if you turned to look at it. It would dissapear. Not thinking much of it, a month later, we realized that we were all at each others throats. Things started missing, then strange cuts and abarasions would be on our arms, chest, legs…etc. My friend ended up with tumors on his shoulder and I found out that I had kidney cancer. The entinty sucluded the women from us. They wanted to be left alone. They stayed depresed and withdrawn, basically they wanted to sleep all the time and had no energy. December, finaly me and my wife moved out. After leaving everything seemed to be fine, till one night, I decided to wright about our ordeal. Thats when it came for me again…..Demon, Ghost but not a figment of my imagination. I am sure that this Demon would have eventually caused my familys death, if we had not moved….There is alot more to this story, but I am not sure that it will let me tell it…..

    • Elise Gingerich says:

      sometimes I actually Feel like My Mental Marbles are missing Too but yes I think that That Bird Demon demon in My twin sister’s and My childhood in the Good and not the Bad Haunted former apartment on some Other side of Iowa City Iowa may or may not have taken My metal Slinky? thing when It would supposedy Slither or Crawl crawl or slither back Under the Bed but It wasn’t going Under the Bed It was maybe?? going Someplace or Somewhere else altogether like maybe in that Fringe?? show like an Under Dimension or a Transfer? Dimension from maybe One side of the town of Iowa City Iowa? to Another? and back and forth and forth and back for Awhile anyways
      was those metal coil things called Slinkys?? but then Again the Slinky? thing in the Good and not Bad apartment could have just been Misplaced!

  20. dawn says:

    The story is a good story but, also very terrifying, one I will not forget and it was not even my own expeirence. I would like to say that my prayers are with you and will continue to be with you as long as you need it. I am also sorry that you had to go through this experience. One thing most often I find in stories about demons is that they almost always play out thier little evil events on us when we are alone. The problem is how to solve it? AND THIS IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM AND NOT EASILY SOLVED!!! I do believe that GOD has every thing we need to heel the situation. But he also provideds us help in earthly people to aid us in removing these terrifying demons from our homes and our lives. I think you need a strong support group. I think it was a great move on your part telling your story. I think that all the commenst above are in fact a line of support. I hope you have a loved one or a friend you can talk to that provideds you with more support. Church is the number one area of support and it is great that you are going to church and praying. I know your family is afraid because you all still live there and I sympathize. I wish however that you would be able to discuss your concerns and fears with them whenever you feel afraid or uneasy. It could give you the strenght you need to move forward. Lastly I would like to say. Should you see this thing again. Pray and leave the home go back to your grandmothers for a couple of weeks. I know you dont like to leave your family however, if it is a demon one of the things I have learned the most in my research is that if it is a demon it will follow you. If you are at your grandmohthers and nothing happens then it may not possibly be a demon. I know this is a scary experiement it is giving me chills just thinking about it. But should this ever happen again you need to know exactly what you are dealing with. Lastly get in touch with the previous owner inquire about the house! Ask point blank if anything strange ever happened to her??? Good Luck!!!
