ZOZO the Ouija Demon

Posted on March 24, 2009

My name is Darren and I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am currently 40 years old, and have held a fascination with the occult since an early age. I have had many bizarre experiences with Ouija boards and I am writing this as a warning to people that bad things can happen because of these “portals.”

Parker brothers doesn’t care if a demon possesses you, or if you come under some type of attack from something you know nothing about. The majority of people from The United States holds a skeptical view regarding the scientific evidence of spirits or ghosts, and many people who believe in these things also believe that it is for this very reason that ghosts and poltergeists occur here and exist “under the radar” so to speak. These Ouija boards are manufactured under the precept that they are mere “toys.” Let me tell you first hand that THEY ARE NOT TOYS, and should be used with strict caution, and probably should not be messed with AT ALL. Other countries take a more open minded view of spirits, demons, and ghosts, and many many cultures have based entire religions from these beliefs.

During my experiences with Ouija boards one particular spirit always seemed compelled to make it’s presence known. It’s name is ZOZO. Today I refuse to even pronounce it’s name as I believe the mere pronunciation of it can cause it to manifest itself. Too many times to count, it has at first pretended to be a nice spirit, or pretend to be whomever I was trying to contact. But eventually it showed it’s true self, cussing me, threatening me and others present in the room. Once it actually cussed me using what looked like Latin or Hebrew, and using biblical terminology. I was genuinely fascinated and startled by how many times ZOZO showed up, even in many different states and many different Ouija boards. It always wound up being very nasty and commented freely about how it wanted to posses my girlfriends and take them to paradise. When asked where paradise was, it spelled H.E.L.L. One time after ZOZO was being extremely evil, I walked into my bathroom only to see my 1 year old daughter about to drown. Her mother had left her alone in the tub “just for a second” and somehow the water got turned on and was overflowing. Instinctively she had her face tilted up and was seconds from going under when I grabbed her from the water. The next day she was hospitalized for some weird internal infection and was put in isolation for 14 days straight as doctors tried to diagnose the illness. We almost lost her, and that was when I began to suspect demonic attack.

At this same time my girlfriend maintained a “trance like” state. Her personality changed from a very sweet person, to withdrawn, and uncaring. ZOZO said before this that it was going to possess her and eat her soul. I was recording music for a future rock project and I remember jokingly asking if it had an opinion on what I should name the band. It spelled IRON TONGUE, which at the time I thought was pretty cool, only later when my daughters tongue swelled up in the hospital to the point of asphyxiation I realized that this wasn’t cool AT ALL! Her tongue became rock hard, and distorted her face, swelling up to where it hung grotesquely from her mouth. We took turns bedside at the hospital for what seemed like forever before my daughter began to recover from this strange affliction.

When guests would spend the night in our house they would claim that they heard frightening voices coming from inside the walls. Objects would be thrown across the room, and spiders seem to come from nowhere. My girlfriends brother whom lived with us complained that he couldn’t sleep at night because the “conversations” were so loud that he simply could not rest. He believed in ghosts, and though he wasn’t afraid of them, he said that it definitely felt demonic. Lights would come off and on by themselves, doors would open and unlock themselves. One night in our bedroom a viscous laughter emanated from thin air, and to this day I cannot explain the terror in that laughter. One night I was awakened by what felt like hands on my throat choking me. I could not breathe, I could not scream. After about 30 seconds it released it’s grip and I gasped for air. The same thing happened to my girlfriend the next night. Another night me and her brother were standing just outside the back porch sliding glass door when we were talking about a supposed curse of their family. I abruptly exclaimed “I rebuke this curse in the name of Jesus Christ!” I no longer finished saying those exact words when a deafening sound and a vibration struck the entire house with such an alarming “boom” that the neighbors came over to ask if I had heard something strange. I knew it wasn’t our imaginations, I got out the ladder to see what had landed on top of the house only to find nothing. Things settled down after that, and to this day I believe that whatever made that noise also caused the disturbance to go away… For awhile.

My girlfriend broke up with me, and I met someone online in Michigan, where I moved up to be with her. She didn’t believe in spirits, and although I knew better, I decided to make her a believer as well. Living in a very small town in Marshall Michigan there were no stores that sold Ouija boards so I downloaded one from the internet. I printed it out, and to my horror ZOZO returned. It said it came from “cyberspace”…and when I asked it where it lived it spelled “SKULL NECKLACE”… We didn’t think much of this until I asked it again where it was, this time spelling “MIRROR.” The was only one mirror in the bedroom where we were crouched on the floor, and I heard a scream coming from her 7 year old niece who was watching us with another young friend. We looked up at the mirror and saw the skull necklace swaying back and forth with glowing eyes looking down at us!

My new girlfriends son had hung the necklace on one of the posts of the waterbed hours before I downloaded the paper board. We almost jumped out of our skin, and although 3 feet of fresh snow had fallen that night we all found ourselves in the front yard not knowing what to do, scared and frozen in terror. My girlfriend was so fascinated she drove 40 miles to purchase a new glow in the dark Ouija board much to my dismay.

The next night we had another session in the same room. ZOZO immediately came forth, and even without me being a participant. My girlfriends nieces were using the planchette and I would secretly write down a color onto a small piece of paper, then crumple it up where no one could see. I asked the young girls to ask the board if it knew which color I had written down, it quickly scooted to “YES!”…”BLUE!” I remember chills coursing up and down my spine as I threw the wadded up paper to my girlfriend. Her eyes widened as she read the written color BLUE! We then tried the same thing with shapes, and words and every time the board knew.

One night we asked the board if the spirit would show itself. It spelled YES and told me to turn out the lights and take a picture of the necklace above the board. I did just that and what turned out is eerie to say the least. On the upper left hand corner of the picture you can plainly see “winged” skeletons flying about, and they are of the exact same weird shape of this “skateboarders” skeleton necklace. Towards the middle you can make out hideous faces, I have seen at least 4 evil faces in this picture. I took this picture about 6 years ago, people have stolen it off of paranormal websites claiming they took it, when I know truthfully it was me. I have sent this picture to several “experts” and they have all said they cannot explain the images inside. As if all of this wasn’t strange enough now comes the REALLY scary part.

A few months ago I googled the word ZOZO. To my shock, many other people have also been contacted by a demon by the SAME NAME! I read about 20 similar stories and I am now convinced that this simply CANNOT be mere coincidence. Supposedly ZOZO is an ancient demon name which possibly stands for “The Destroyer.” Claims of demonic possession are associated with this ZOZO, and I feel it my duty to warn people to steer clear from this if it happens to present itself during a Ouija board session. I am currently researching this phenomena for a future book, and am in the initial stages of presenting my findings to a reputable demonologist who has been involved in hundreds of cases of paranormal activities across the world including “A Haunting in Connecticut.”

What is this ZOZO? Supposedly the 3 headed dog demon which guards the gates of hell has a tattoo on it’s forehead that spells ZOSO. Also, ZOZO is a term Aleister Crowley claimed meant “666.” Jimmy Page of the rock group Led Zeppelin also used ZOSO as a symbol on the Zeppelin 4 album. Could ZOZO and Zoso be connected somehow? How can so many different people from so many different parts of the world somehow lie about this ZOZO spirit? And if they aren’t lying, than how can you explain these visitations by this wicked entity? Is ZOZO the devil himself? Or a wayward demon who has the power to manifest itself wherever and whenever it is called?

Heed my warnings people, if you are playing around with a Ouija board, and you jokingly ask it if it has a name and it spells ZOZO. Close the session properly, cleanse the house, NEVER I repeat NEVER ask it again. And if you are brave enough to carry on conversations with this spirit do NOT antagonize it, or act on it’s directions. I know what I have seen, and I know other people have also come into contact with this spirit. It is dangerous beyond words. I realize not every session results in negativity, but when you play with this ZOZO you are playing with fire. Everything I have described here is true, and I am not exaggerating one bit. It may take me years, but I DO intend on writing a book about this, as I have many more stories that I do not have time to mention here. They all stem from true events that took place while talking to this ZOZO.

Folks I have been told by people wiser than myself that the spirit world is “MORE REAL” than this world of so called reality. Ouija boards can cause many bad things to happen in your life. I am including the Ouija Ghost picture within this submission. Maintain an open mind, and most of all BE CAREFUL!

    I live in Pocola, south of Tulsa. I’ve never messed with one of those things because of my paranoia and I don’t plan on it. This hits me, because Tulsa isn’t so far away from me. I have several cousins, one who is going on a teen and I’ve warned her of what will happen should I catch her with one of these things and another who desperately wants me to ‘try it out’.

    Yeah, no.

    • Anonymous says:

      Ok this is a very very true story. I was looking at Ouija Tales of people and then out of no where my mouse started to move and no one was here. It started to highlight words that is didn’t pay attention to what it said until the only thing i realized is that it highlighted ZOZO possess then up where u type the websites it said you can you make out what that says? Thats right ZOZO POSSESS YOU. Can anyone help me i’m very very scared now

      • hussain adulmagid says:

        dont be scaird, that just what he wants. he will take no action to somebody who hasnt made much contact with him either through ouija board, or a seonce. i have alot of experience with zozo. he will definetely leave u alone if u try not to talk to him too much. trust me, im haunted by zozo, and he cant hurt me because he saiys im too powerfull for him, because im supposed to be a “meduim”, and i kind of agree on that with him, cause some times ill see shadow like figures in certain areas, and sometimes it stays around for a few minutes, and other times it goes away in a few seconds… BUT, any ways, the point was, theres nothing to be afraid of…

        • Apostleled says:

          “he cant hurt me because he saiys im too powerfull for him,” I am afraid that without God you are nothing God is powerful not you and not me. If you think you are to powerful to be harmed by this demon he will harm you and the door through wich is pride. You must respect these demons they serve a purpose and they have been around alot longer than you and I. Do not let him decieve you into thinking it is you thats powerful that is were you will fall you must use Gods power not your own.Trust in God alone and humble yourself before him. Much love.

            Thts not true god is real but saying tht only god is powerful is a false statement we all have the ability to protect ourselves from any spirit…espescially demons….i always get mentally attacked by demons and spirits…all spirits feed on our energy thts y wen u feel randomly like lazy or tired like u shouldnt do anything active….or u randomly feel angry or sad about something u just dont kno ur getting phsycically attacked…this has everything to do with demons cuz the only reason for them to find u is to feed off of ur energy….usually the people who r channeling negative energy like wen they r angry and having a fight tht just opens them to be fed on…so hav fun wit this info cuz its true also if god werent real we could protect our selves just go on youtube and search phsycic sunshine rose cuz she has the best videos on teaching u how to protect urself from phsycic attacks…from any spirit…dosent matter if god is real or not anybody can protect rlthemselves

        • A.J Ryder says:


          Why on Heaven and earth would you believe anything a demon tells you? If this spirit is telling you you’re too powerful for it, then it is merely lulling you into a false sense of security.

      • Anonymous says:

        look this happened to me only i didnt kno what it was when i played. we got into a conversation because i thought he was good. he said he really liked me but didnt like tessa he even swore at her. then he asked me out and i said yes. then i heard satan had killed him and im freaking out to.

        • Caretaker says:

          He asked you out and you said yes? That is ridiculous if I do say so myself

        • Raven says:

          uhhhmmmm,…… Why would yu say yes to him ? That’s a bit weird. he’s a demon. he says he’s good when he is not. i’ve encountered him PLENTY of times. he said he’s gonna rape, possess, & kill me. & now all these weird things are happening in my house. lastnight is when i used my ouija board with my friend. i regret it. honestly.

          • Badass says:

            • I love demons says:

              Well i have talked to him plenty of times and he always says he’s not going to hurt me. In fact i almost think of him as a friend. Its crazy but he always is so cool. Does this mean i am possesd

        Hi dear,
        I have recently started reading about paranormal activities so i dont have much idea about it but i personally think that just reading abt them is no harm. They need some mode to contact us like planchet or ouija board. Dont be scared …

      • rod johnson says:

        I read this and looked down at my shirt and realized im wearing the Led Zeppelin shirt with zoso on it…..

            Darren, I have never used a Ouija board because I don’t permit usage anywhere near my presence, however, I am an Empath and have come across Zozo several times. He appeared in full form outside the doors in living room. I don’t even say his name because when I do, he manifests himself to the people I’m talking to. He is pure evil. I don’t even like spelling his name let alone saying it. I have seen his symbol in the Necronomicon. It’s a big circle or “O” with a big letter “Z” written inside and a smaller “z” and “o” on the sides of it. Do not write it out, bad things usually happen when you do. Also, from what I know of, his other name is Sir Topem Hat, (yes like the character in the children’s tv cartoon “Thomas and Friends.”) and looks the same way but is tall and skinny and still wears the black top hat and tuxedo.

          • Toni says:

            yeah me and my friends might have let ZOZO out and he told me he loves me and wants to be with me im scared i can see him at night in my closet looking at me and by my bedroom door rocking back and forth looking at me he whispers in my ear at night telling me how my life will end and whats going to happen later in life this happens every night he fallows me around and every time we use the ouija board he tells me what i want to hear. . . . And do you know what it means when he none stops goes to all four corners every time we talk to him??? It worrys me. . . .

            • Casey McMurray says:

              These Ouiga boards and crazy stories are completely fake. “ZOZO” is not real, nor is any other demon in this “underworld”. The other player(s) push the board with their fingers. Everybody wants you to believe! I used to, but oh boy, my dad told me a lot of things that the internet wouldn’t.
              People tell you all this stuff to mess with your mind. It makes you hellusinate and exaggerate. But guess what? All a Ouiga board is is some cardboard with some English numbers, letters and a few phrases with a plastic piece. REALLY thats ALL it is! If you REALLY want to believe and scare your pants off, go right ahead. But all of you who are with me I’m saying it all. I mean, CMON! A board and some plastic can cause all these stories?!? It’s just not possible…

              • mr. a says:

                WELL- I admire your bravery- why dont you show us just how brave and stuff guy you are by ( go out and buy a board buy some black candles go to a secluded place were you will not be bothered ) and see for your self .

                make sure you have a video camera recording everything – to keep resonable information recorded .

                you want to see for your self and not take anybodies word for it – TAKE THE CHALLENG – ( LETS US KNOW HOW IT TURNS OUT )


                THE BEST OF LUCK.

                • Anonymous says:

                  I agree Mr. A that is so true they all say its fake but they have never tried it.
                  Also to everyone who has or is going to play the ouija board you are NOT contacting a spirit in the bible it clearly states there has only been two times a real spirit has come to earth so if your talking to a “spirit” it is’nt what you think it is its a demon or perhaps the devil himsels. It also states in the bible that many will diceive and say they are the light and holy. So every séance you perform you are talking to VERY powerful, malevolent demons all of which do have the power to posses, kill and ruin yohr life beyond what is imaginable!

                Hey whoever said this stuff isnt true,
                I’m only 13 but i have had some experiences. One time when i was about 4 i was sleeping on the couch in my grandma’s house i seen someone in the kitchen hallway and was the palest thing i have ever seen. But a warm sensation came from it but i was still scared. So i walk into my grandmas room where my brother grandma and cousin was sleeping(I have no idea why to this day) and I lay down. It was right there. I think i might post an article on what has happened at my grandmas house.

              • Jessica Snethen says:

                I am 31 and am completely shocked that so many people are speaking about the same experiences my sister and I had when we were just 10-12 years old. How does this thing manifest in so many different places? I live in Topeka Kansas and am hearing about sightings, confrontations that take place in Ireland, Europe and many other places all over the World. NOT A COINCEDENCE

                • Jackalope says:

                  Obviously because it’s a very powerful demon. Though why anyone would play with a ouija board beats me.

      • 28Chris1983 says:

        It’s strange you mention an encounter with ZA cause everytime I have used a ouija board or when anyone would use the board in our house, we came in contact with AZAZ, it would move back and forth from A to Z over and over until we would speak again. The board was always most active with AZ. Not long after that I started having strange things happen in our house. I too would wake up with what appeared to be scratches from claw marks on me but they were under the skin. Maybe your ZA is the same as my AZAZ?

        • Sadeee123 says:

          ok so i have never had terrible ouija experiences but one time my friend and i also asked if anyone was there and it went “AZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZA…” we disregarded it and thought maybe it was having trouble communicating so we just stopped. now that im seeing a similar post im a bit creeped maybe it wasnt a malfunction maybe thats what it meant to say

      • anonymis says:

        Hey, ok first u gotta cleanse your house, pray, pray, pray, the Lord will help you and u have to be brave, no matter what! try to ignor it after you pray and NEVER, i say NEVER play with that board again! get rid of it as soon as possible!! burn it…

        • Sadeee123 says:

          No disrespect intended but no, never burn it. every person i know who has burned it has something following them for years that they cannot be rid of. Fire sets it free. Bury it to return it to gods earth

        • Lindy Wilson says:

          My Mom said u can’t burn it. I don’t remember if it said ZA or AZ, but it does seem familiar 2 me. I asked it when I would die & it went wide open off the board. My friend & I were terrified so my Granny put the thing on the porch till we could go 2 the dump the next day. I would have tried burning it except my Mom had said, I believe that her & her brothers couldn’t burn it.

    • Tony says:

      The Ouija board does not “attract” any entities that aren’t already in your space, it merely gives the spirit a voice.
      These spirits may already be affecting your life.

      • Garcia says:

        I believe a spirit has resided near me, either in my apartment or my girlfriend believes mit may be following her. We have not used an ouija board, however I will not allow one in my apartment. I sprinkled some holy water and recited my profession of faith. This seems to have just pissed off the spirit becuase it is acting more now.

        Now I just did this in my room, I’m not sure if I should have done this through out my apartment.

        What else should I do? Say the whole rosary? have a priest come into my home??

        Also my girl said she had visited a satanic church, I believe before we started dating, and that she had felt an evil-like presence follow her after.

    • Toni says:

      yeah me and my friends might have let ZOZO out and he told me he loves me and wants to be with me im scared i can see him at night in my closet looking at me and by my bedroom door rocking back and forth looking at me he whispers in my ear at night telling me how my life will end and whats going to happen later in life this happens every night he fallows me around and every time we use the ouija board he tells me what i want to hear. . . . And do you know what it means when he none stops goes to all four corners every time we talk to him??? It worrys me. . . . He is kinda cool i like him <3

    • donna burcher says:

      I don’t know much about zozo but i know hes real theyre vid on youtube of someone talking to him then getting possessed it creaped me out but i believe mostly because i have a small gift where i know that an entity is near or around and my friend that is a guide she even told me i was gifted and gifted with no fear against evil and i know when somethings near i believe this entity is true because ive had some contact with a demon or a few but one murdered someone infront of me that left me so unknowing of what happened for years till my friend told what happened

    • Anonymous says:

      Ouija board is a childs game…..much like Chutes and Ladder or CandyLand…nothing more. Although once when playing with mine by candlelight someone named BOZO came thru and told me to buy tickets to Ringling Bros Barnam and Bailey Circus……..

      • Caretaker says:

        Saying that the Ouija is the same as Chutes and Ladders is like saying a BB gun is the same as a 12 gauge shotgun.

        • rod johnson says:

          are you saying chutes and ladders can be as deadly as a shotgun?? my child plays it often and i want to make sure he is safe..

    • Mika says:

      Darren, I am afraid even though I have never heard of this ZOZO, I feel as if I know of it. HOWEVER, no one should take ZOZO lightly because when I read it’s name, I knew that if you make it mad, it may drag you straight to hell. I am very well pshychic and have even predicted a small part of my own future. BE CAREFUL, i’m afraid that if you publish a book about this, stupid teenagers will be the ones to pay. Teenagers are the ones who think that if they contact ZOZO, they’ll be considered “cool.”

      • Mika says:

        Ever since I played with a wiji board on the internet, something seems to be following me, at 2:21 something awoke me from my slumber, half asleep I yelled “Keep it down, i’m trying to sleep!!” It shuushed up and is watching silently.

      • Lindy Wilson says:

        It told me that I’d marry EEW. That is my husband’s initials. It told my Mom that she’d marry a man with strawberry blonde hair. That was the color of my father’s hair. The problem with the devil’s handiwork is that he takes a piece of truth & mixes it with lies to confuse and lead astray from the person’s blessings. I know I married right ’cause of Jesus’ still small voice, however, at times I did question myself since most ppl r against my marriage. My Mom is in her fourth marriage. My Dad was # 2.

    Interesting experience…
    Sounds like this ZoZo gave you quite a time…
    Are there any biblical allusions you are aware of concerning ZoZo?
    I’ve never encountered this entity (Thank god) and i don’t hope to. He seems like quite a powerful demon…but if you google ‘severe demon cases’ then you’ll find horrible, spine-tingling recounts of possessions and suicides, where the host underwent various abhorrent transitions in temperament.
    They were described as eating birds, roaring and even climbing walls!!!

    this isn’t to say this ZoZo is a formidable demon,,,,whilst reading this article he reminded of these accounts. Is ZoZo haunting you still by the way/

    anyway, nice story. (i agree wholeheartedly that Ouija boards are not toys even though they are marketed as such)

    Hi Darren,

    I nearly missed this story. Just about everything you say i can relate too, i only played with a ouija board once and something evil attached itself to me. Soon afterwards i was attacked by this and it tried to possess me. No word of exageration, i felt it enter my body, a prayer to God saved me from whatever else this demon had in mind for me. All this sounds so far fetched, but unless you go through it, you just cannot explain how absolutely dangerous these boards are. It’s as though demons sit and wait for people to play ouija boards and then they are easily unleashed into our world, by naive people unknowingly inviting them in.

    What you say about ouija boards is absolutely true and they need banning out of toy stores. In fact i have a pettition running at the moment on my website, which is aiming to ban ouija boards from being sold in toy stores.

    Anybody who reads this and is considering using a ouija board, think again, what i say is absolutely true, i swear this before God. I would not say that being a believer in God without it was the truth. Please be warned!

    • barb kingsbury says:

      i agree they are not to be taken lightly i have played when i was younger and nothing good came out of it ,,it is not a game!!! but the devil’s deed’s at hand!!

    • Raven says:

      I have not yet met zozo. I played with a ouija board before and I’m only 13. This is very scary! I know someone who has met zozo just today and zozo said he would kill my bestfriend! I’m scared for my bestfriend! She decided to burn her ouija board but that only let’s the spirits out! I told her it was a horrible choice and she needs to purify her house with dried sage. I am a fan of witchcraft and I know how to get rid of these evil demons. I only met one spirit and his name was Justin. Apparently he was a demon to and my other friend told me NOT to use my ouija board anymore even though it’s very interesting to learn about these demons. Zozo kept saying my friends older sister was hot held… What does that mean? Supposedly Justin was a demon too and I’m kinda freaked out. They say there good when there really bad. Never trust a spirit and never use one to those of you who want to try it! It’s scary and deadly!!!!

      • Steve says:

        I think you are confusing ZOZO with BOZO.
        Its just a silly board game……….nothing more.
        If you dont believe me…..use it totally blindfolded. The spirits can still spell. Then have someone nuetral watch what it spells….which will be gibberish….and prove my point.

        • Jordan says:

          that is where your wrong…me and my mother played it and i had my eyes shut and she was watching me…the board answered questions about her missing brother of 17 years that only she knew…these things are highly dangerous and addictive i wont say dont play one coz thats hypocritical….but be VERY careful and do your homework on them before trying to use them….take them seriously and always be precautious

    • Steve says:

      Just to have some fun…….we used an OUIJA planchette on a Chutes and Ladders board game and called up the spirit of Strawberry Shortcake!!! Soon however….she was replaced by the much more powerful and sinister spirit Howdy Doody complete with Buffalo Bob Smith!!!! “What time is it boys and girls”?

  4. Jen says:

    ok daren, u’re right the boards r very dangerous!

  5. darren says:

    It seems this spirit has left me alone for a few years. I havent been able to find much as far as ZOZO as a demon name is concerned. Seems to be associated with a name “Hester” and “Abaddon” which means “The Destroyer.” I have some experts researching the name as well. It’s far too coincedental that so many other people have had evil experiences with this ZOZO and none know each other. The odds of this happening are astronomical. Some people are already claiming it to be an elaborate hoax, but I know better. This is a very strange set of circumstances and I intend on attempting to contact these people for further research into what appears to be a real life demon stalking and attacking people.

    • savannah says:

      where is the pic?

    • M.C. says:

      Yea i wasnt able to find anything on Zozo either because i wuz curious and looked it up on google and all it came up with wuz stuff about led zepplin and some weird thing about zozobra which i hav no idea wat that is hope it stops soon.

    • Dave Richardson says:

      This page has peeked my interest!!!
      Hey Darren maybe you can help me crack this code. I may have contacted Zozo, but not through an ouija board. When I was four I moved to Calgary Alberta, Canada with my family. We lived in a small duplex where it was just my parents me and my sister. We would go downstairs and play all the time, but one morning we found all our toys gathered around the table with this one huge creepy doll, (that we’d never seen before) sitting at the head of the table. It would open its eyes and look around. One day my sister told me out loud she thought it was haunted. When she said that it opened its eyes and looked at us. I grabbed the doll and took it outside by the garbage and left it there. The next morning the doll was back at the foot of the table with all the other toys gathered around it. We never went in the basement again.
      A couple weeks later, our neghbour on the other side of the duplex went mad and set his side on fire with his family still inside of it. We moved, (obviously) and three years later I found that doll in the new basement. I’m sure we left it behind but there it was. When I found it, I broke it, Bad move!
      In the kitchen, knives would throw them selves at me from out of the sink. Doors would open and slam. I’d see shapes of…I cant even really describe. demonic anyway. This continued for about nine years. Then when I was sixteen a massive black apparition pushed open my door at 3:15am floated up to me and spoke in a deep strange language I have never heard anything close to. When it finished it entered me through my eyes ears and mouth, I was in total paralysis and sank back into total darkness. With all my effort I sprang back forth, looked around and all was the same, and the time was still 3:15. Since then there has been an excorcism of my parents house to remove whatever it was, because it started to follow and haunt my siblings too. We didn’t speak of this till much later tho. Later in life I got Jimmy Page’s symbol tattooed on my arm on an impulse. No idea why. So many strange things have happened to me. Maybe you could try to explain

    • Anonymous says:

      Hey, Darren uh could you inform me when you make the book i think it is horrible that it happened to you but i would like to read it. i have never encountered a ouija board but i cant help the feeling of using it any advice?
      hey this is one of his friends can u give more stories to us

    • Rafal says:

      Try looking up the name pazuzu , then youll find your answers

  6. Brackette says:

    the name reminds me of Pazuzu from the Exorcist.

    • Hahaha :D says:

      is Zozo Pazuzu? the first time i met him on Ouija, i asked what his name was and he said “CAPTAIN HOWDY” , the second time he said his name was Zozo, then the third time he said he was Pazuzu… When he said his name was Pazuzu i asked if i had met him before and he said “YES” i said who are you and he spelt out “C-A-P-T-A-I-N-H-O-W-D-Y-Z-O-Z-O”

      • Stay Away From Captain Howdy says:

        Captain Howdy is a child molester in a Twisted Sister song that gets lynched by an angry mob. It’s on the Stay Hungry album. Interesting.

        • Anonymous says:

          Captain Howdy is also mentioned in the movie The Exorcist when the girls mother asked who her “friend” was on the board

  7. tyra says:

    You’re right Ouija Boards are’nt anything to play around with.I’ve never tried one myself but i heard of horrible things happening when other people do…

  8. Alpha says:

    sorry for asking on a different story but are you a vampire?

  9. Shawn Mak says:

    ZOZO hah?Sounds interresting . could u write the points of details? I ever thought of keeping a god of death and name it ZOZO kind da of a coincidence don’t ya think Darren? Anyway cool story eve’nt if it’s true.

  10. Honeychurch says:

    I have a hard time with this, because after a child was horribly attacked and almost died, I cannot understand why anyone would invite it back. I hope this story is just a story, otherwise, I find this to be the height of irresponsibility. It’s one thing to put yourself in danger, but once you know the consequences, willingly taking that chance with your family again seems unbelievably foolish.

  11. darren says:

    After my daughter went through that ordeal I didn’t fool around with ouija boards again until I went to Michigan to live with a new girlfriend. Even then I didn’t want to, but she pestered me until I gave in. I had told her stories about things that I have seen, and well she wasn’t going to take no for an answer. She was an atheist, and simply didn’t believe in any Gods, Demons,or Spirits. She quickly changed her mind however when she seen how the board was able to tell her things about her family that even SHE did not know.

    She became extremely depressed and reclusive into our year long relationship. We parted our seperate ways and I came back to Oklahoma, where I have only dabbled once at a gravesite where my best friend of 20 years is buried. I have a fiance that forbids me to play with Ouija boards, and she has also seen firsthand paranormal activity in a house we lived in that we believe to be haunted that had nothing to do with Ouija boards. A psychic once told me that I had 3 spirits that followed me everywhere I go….1 guardian spirit which is good, and 2 bad spirits with 1 of those 2 being very destructive. Is this ZOZO? I have no clue.

    People call me a liar, and that my stories are simply fabrications but I have many witnesses that have seen amazing circumstances along with myself. I know that this ZOZO has come to me from many different boards, even homemade ones. I actually do not even need a Ouija board to communicate with spirits. A simple piece of paper will do. I believe you can talk to them in the same way you talk to anyone else. Ouija boards are indeed a tool that most people decide to use when speaking to these invisible souls. Some of my accounts are so far fetched that they border ridiculousness, and will not delve into now, as I will save them for my book project. But again these events really did happen to me, and others around me. I know they happened. I used to feel compelled to prove to other skeptic that this spirit world indeed exists, but that isn’t that important to me anymore. Gone are the days of having to scare the daylights out of myself and others just to show them that there is an unseen world. Now I just hope to keep any unclean entities away from me and my loved ones, and to warn people of the dangers involved.

    • ouija says:

      ok i play all the time DONT TELL ME not to mess with it i knoww i comunicate with my sisterr good times nothing bad ever happened I KNOW WHAT IM DOING btw great story darren hoping i dont contact zozo btw in case it happens wat it mean wen ouija says zazazazazazazazaza or azazazazazazazaz

  12. RedHed says:

    Great story , but I whole heartedly agree with HONEYCHURCH- you are a grown man in your 40′s , have numerous serious incidents with this “toy”, yet you keep “playing ” with it . When is enough going to be enough for you ? I think you have been very lucky and think you should get away from this nonsense while you can. You are pushing your luck.

  13. darren says:

    I encourage any disbelievers to go to online search engines and search for “ZOZO Spirit.” or “ZOZO Demon,” or ZOZO Ouija”…….you will immediately see links to tales from other people who describe this spirit,and the unnerving events of this unholy presence. One site actually combines several different stories into one thread where many readers have commented. This is undiputable fact, I do not know these people who claim to have had run-ins with ZOZO. I am not the first to realize that it is a very puzzling set of circumstances. It seems that this spirit has the ability to be in many different places,possibly even at the same time as I have had friends play with multiple boards in separate rooms, with this ZOZO spirit spelling intricate words at the very same time. When we would use candles, earth, wind,and fire present, even with open bibles on the board it would REALLY become powerful,even levitating when we would ask if it could. During some sessions someone would have to stand above the board with a notebook and paper as the center piece would be moving so fast that me and my x-wife would have no idea what it was spelling. The board would abbreviate longer words as if it were impatient, and alot of times it would answer questions even before we could ask them out loud, as if it could read our minds, or the minds of the spectators who might have been present. We have even done it blindfolded, and again the words come swiftly, and even in different languages if we requested it.

    Who is this ZOZO? I am seeking answers from paranormal experts around the world. Some of the references to ZOZO are in spanish,and I am interested if people from different cultures have also had similar experiences. There seems to be a West African VooDoo reference as well. This research is ongoing, and any help from readers would be appreciated.

    • Will says:

      I’m not sure that this is true but i was reading this article you wrote. I remember talking to my aunt a few years ago and she mentioned this guy she knew who used spells to summon demons. This man was a close friend to her. She said one day he was using an Ouija board for fun and he came across that same demon you came across. It really bothered him for awhile, I mean trying to kill him and/ or possibly his family if he had on The guy told her that zozo was a minion of satan. I forget what the mans name was I think his last name was Winters. I hope your doing all right now and that thing gets burnt in holy fire. I thought i should tell you that, hope it helped!

    • Anonymous says:

      From your accounts i would say you and your ex wife used the board so much it became an obsession and an addiction. this is not healthy and i wonder if you wanted to make contact so badly that you imagined this Zozo – see i said it and nothing happened to me. Maybe you feel better now because you leave it alone, keep it that way!

  14. Bracket says:


    I’m not saying i don’t believe you but your last post can be interpreted as you finding the name online and creating a story around it.

  15. darren says:

    I did google ZOZO, and like i said I am not the first person to notice that “term” associated with spirit communication. When I did learn that other people have had similar occurances I did re-submit some of my writings to various paranormal websites, that I admit to. I do not claim to know anymore about this ZOZO than any other person. I do however claim to have been followed by this spirit or entity since I was about 17 years old. I remember being struck by how similar the name is to the name of the 4th Led Zeppelin Album, and being interested in the term ZOSO. Jimmy Page who was famous for having an impressive collection of material pertaining to Aleister Crowley, used ZOSO as an astrological symbol for the album of the same name. Even now I wonder if ZOZO and ZOSO could somehow be related, but I tend to doubt it.

    As for people who continue to post comments about me being foolish, inheritantly irresponsible, or just plain ignorant for continuing to mess with Ouija boards I will repeat I DO NOT ACTIVELY INVOLVE MYSELF WITH OUIJA BOARDS ANYMORE. The last time I did was at a grave-site, and it did not respond whatsoever. This was done on a piece of cardboard,and with a protective circle, and opening and closing rituals performed.

    I respect the opinions of everyone, and fully expect the skeptics to ridicule me and call me an idiot for telling my stories. But the facts are this, I have dealt with ZOZO for 20 years. Long before I googled the name, and discovered many others who have had similar experiences, I was being harassed by this presence. I consider myself to be a skeptic as well, and I believe alot of things are hoaxed. But I KNOW what I have gone through with this thing. I am no longer willing to put people in jeopardy because of my curiosity. I now am simply searching for answers, to try and understand what has happened to me,others, and what COULD happen to more people if they by chance come into contact with ZOZO.

      • Mary says:

        You can not contact your dog through a ouiji board. I know you miss your dog. She or he may come to you in a dream.
        Do NOT use a Ouji board, especially if you are sad, the demons will know you are sad and take advantage of you. So sorry about your dog…

  17. Honeychurch says:

    You don’t need to convince me that powerful things are possible with Ouija boards, and that spirits can can represent themselves to be anything they wish; I have experienced this first hand. I have also experienced spirits on the board affecting the physical world around me- moving things, causing people to behave in certain ways, etc. I, too, have had spirits show up on homemade boards, and have had the same nasty spirit crop up over and over and misrepresent themselves. That’s WHY I’m having trouble with your account of things; if the activity was as severe as you reported, and you were absolutely convinced that this ZOZO character was responsible for it, no incentive on earth should have been enough for you to tempt fate like that. Convincing your girlfriend there’s a demon stalking you seems like the very definition of a Pyrrhic victory- the cost is far greater than the triumph! What GOOD outcome could you possibly expect from that? Excuse me, sir, but it reminds me of a half dressed starlet heading down into the basement 15 minutes into a horror film.

    Also, on the ZOZO front, I’d like to point out that in the design of the board, Z and O are on the same plane- when the planchette sweeps across, as it does often when a spirit is indecisive or restless, it’s an easy letter configuration to hit. I’m not saying that it wasn’t an actual spirit present, just that all the ZOZO spirit stories are not necessarily the *same* spirit. If a spirit is there to mess with you, as you well know, they can make up random names and things, and it’s a convenient combination of letters to hit upon. Just something to consider.

    I err on the side of not feeding these negative entities with fascination, fear, or glee. If you feel powerful and important because you’re being targeted by an evil unseen? Check yourself. I’m not saying you are- at all. I’m just saying. I try to do a spiritual cost/benefit analysis- what is the benefit of pursuing it, and what is the potential cost?

  18. airin says:


    i’ve read your stories on another site i think, or one just like it! creeeepy!.. also i know a guy who went through some of the same things after using the board… i don’t think you made it up… and i think that things like this can have an affect of our minds, kind of like we can’t stop as we search for answers. i have lived through many hauntings and know frist hand how it can take over… but maybe stop now lol… i feel like you’ll be okay though…

  19. darren says:


    i agree with alot of your points. Regarding the relative placement of the letters Z and O, you aren’t the first person to point this out. I have also read accounts of spirits calling themselves ZAZA, with reports of a demonic possession of sorts. I rule out the ideomotor explanation as well because I have seen centerpieces move with just one person touching it. Also, for me there can be no mistake that it would spell it’s name VERY plainly. Zooming back and forth from Z to O over and over again with alarming speed and precision. I remember getting cramps in my shoulders from following the centerpieces, and was an avid weight lifter.

    I remember promising myself many times that I would NEVER mess with it again, only to find myself months later doing it again. Maybe I was in some way obsessed with the nervous excitement of being scared during the later years of these sessions. Even now I find myself drawn to finding an old board, and having a full blown session away from my home, but I know things could “follow” me back. So I am content to just continue to share my experiences and chat with people like you that have different perspectives on these strange matters.

    There very well may be a valid plausible, or workable explanation for the events described. But if you have witnessed unexplainable phenomena, you kind of know deep in your heart that it just can’t be explained.

    I have questioned my own sanity during some of my experiences that defy logic. But that would mean the other people that saw the same things would have to also be crazy. No drug use was ever involved. I know I opened a door for these spirit or spirits to come through, and I refuse to keep that door open. But in doing so I may have also opened a window that cannot be shut.

    You know, I think it’s because I’m NOT inherently a skeptic, and have had experiences of my own with the Ouija- posted to this website, even- that I have had such a strong reaction to this story. I’m not here to debunk anyone; but being a believer doesn’t make one credulous, either- or it shouldn’t.

  26. darren says:

    One evening my x-wife and I decided to take an old board to a good friend of mine’s house. He lived close to downtown Tulsa,and he believed in spirits. He had seen some of our “sessions” and he even participated. His wife however did not believe, and so we thought we would show her a few things. Little did we know that before the evening was over my friend Mike and I would find ourselves inside a mental health ward.

    This particular night there was a crisp full moon, everyone was in a pleasant mood,and we brought candles, a box of soil, and poured purified water into a cool little chalice that my x-wife carried with her sometimes. We situated ourselves on the coffee table in the living room, dimmed the lights, and lit the candles.

    Almost immediately the centerpiece started moving in a wide circle alarmingly fast and with unusual intensity. Before we could ask a question the centerpiece moved to HELLO and slowly swooshed past. It was if the spirit was already there, and like it wanted to show us how powerful it was. I remember finding this unusual because usually we had to wait for 5 or 10 minutes for a spirit to start communicating. This time however it began to move the very instant we laid our fingers on the planchette.

    Mike’s wife was Patricia, a large unfriendly biker type chic who didn’t scare easily. This time we didn’t ask the spirits name, we usually assumed it was ZOZO, because that was usually the only name it would claim, even when we would ask to speak with more docile spirits. The board said it did not like Patricia, and began to call her names. Patricia kept giving us dirty looks and thought we were trying to piss her off, but we were just letting the board make it’s comments. The board said Patricia was cheating on Michael with an old x-boyfriend. Me and my x had no idea who this x was, and Michael abruptly told us to ask the board what her x-boyfriends name was. It spelled Matt, and Michael’s face turned red with jealousy. The board went on to say that she had sex with him ealier that day while Michael was at work. Michael asked in which room, and it said “His BED.” Michael walked in the room and looked around for a few minutes coming back with a mens watch he said didn’t belong to him. Patricia was obviously very uncomfortable with all of this, and denied the accusations now coming from Michael. The board said it was going to “SCARE” Patricia.

    Things calmed down after we took a break from the Ouija board, and Michael and myself enjoyed a few beers as the evening progressed. We were all sitting in the living room and it was about midnight or so when my wife and I got back on the board. The board began to cuss Patricia again,and we thought about going home as it was getting carried away with the insults. Suddenly all the board would spell was WINDOW. It spelled it over and over as if trying to tell us something. We all looked out the living room windows but saw nothing but darkness. Patricia asked us if we needed a beer and we said yes. The board spelling window, window faster and faster, when we heard a terrifying scream from the kitchen. Patricia was screaming ” Someone was looking in at me through the window!”

    Me and Michael bolted out the front door and we saw a tall man running down the street. We chased him for a few blocks,down an alley way and into a building. Police officers were at this building with cruisers pulled up to the front of this MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY! A faculty lady asked us what the hell was going on,and we told her about the peeping tom. She informed us that this person had simply vanished off the property an hour earlier,and got the poilice involved in searching for the disturbed individual. I told the officers that this person was staring into a window on the side of the house and one officer went thru an “employees only” door to ask the guy some questions. Me and Michael were catching our breaths outside and after about ten minutes the officers came outside laughing amongst themselves. I asked the burly officer what happened and I will NEVER forget what he said.

    The officer told me the guy was obviously disturbed,and said he wouldn’t answer any of his questions however he told the faculty member that he had told her “The devil told me I would find him there!” A rush of chills flowed up and down my spine as I looked at Michael with jaw dropped and we stood there in disbelief. The officer also commented that no charges could be filed as this man was legally insane,and living at this home for the mentally challenged. We walked back home and told the girls what we had found out. Patricia had threw the Ouija board out the front door, and told me that I wasn’t welcome there anymore. She was trembling and my x-wife was scared as well. Me and Michael decided to burn the board.

    Michael got an old gas can from the shed, and poured gasoline over the board,and tossed the gas can about 15 feet across the yard. As we watched, he threw a match down and an amazing thing happened. A tall flash of flame ignited, but instead of burning the board, a trail of fire flashed across the yard all the way to the can of gasoline where it exploded in a huge fireball. Michael recieved second and third degree burns on his face and hands and we called an ambulance because was screaming and was almost blinded by the gasoline. Again the poilce showed up as the Ambulance took Michael and Patricia to the hospital. I remember picking up the Ouija board and noticing a blackened frame of burnt grass surrounding the board but incredibly the Ouija board was unharmed. I threw the board in the trash on the side of the house.

    The next day I got a call from Patricia who proceeded to cuss me out. She asked me “How could I do such a thing?” She then accused me of placing the Ouija board in the kitchen where the peeping tom was. I told her that I threw the board in the trash outside, but she didnt believe me. Michael spent the night in the hospital, and had to go to intensive outpatient treatment for the burns he had recieved.

    I remained friends with Michael and about a year after that night he toldme that Patricia admitted to cheating on him. The watch he had found had belonged to her x, and they had sex earlier that day just as the board claimed.

    Thanks for reading, this story is true and I will never forget that night for the rest of my life.
