The thing in the woods

The story you are about to listen to sounds like something from a really bad horror movie but I can assure you it’s true.

Around 10 years ago my dad, my puppy German Shepard “diamond”, and me lived in 25 Acer’s of woods in between the Georgia and Tennessee border. In our little cabin we had there was lots of paranormal activity but this is the most memorable and terrifying event.

In March of 2007 we were in the middle of a bad storm. Me and Diamond were watching an episode of “The Dukes Of Hazzard” and then the power went out. I of course being a 14 year old got a little creeped out.

I grabbed my Mag Light and started walking towards my dad’s room and then I heard someone at the door so me being and idiot teen went to open the door to say high. Then my dad ran out of his room and yelled “don’t open the door!” So I stopped in my tracks and asked what’s up and what he said still shakes me today.

He told me that the figure in the window wasn’t human or any animal he had ever seen. We then sat in the living room with a lantern and a few flashlights too look around the house. Then the door burst open and we both probably had shit city in our pants.

We then grabbed everything we could and ran to my dad’s room and my dog followed.

My dad locked the door and grabbed our shotgun and I asked if we should call the neighbors or 911 but then he reminded me that our nearest neighbor was 10 miles away and the police would take probably 45 Minutes and by then we would already be dead. Diamond stood behind the door growling and waiting for whatever was at the door to come in so she could attack.

The thing kept hammering at the door for 5 minutes till the door gave way. My dad kept his cool and filled the thing with 5 shells of 12 gauge buckshot and then after it was down he started hammering it’s head in with the butt of the gun, not even looking at it to see what it was, he just kept hammering. When he finally stopped there was no more head to be seen other than so red mud like liquid flowing into the floor.

When I got a look at it I think time stopped for a while, it had goat arms and they looked like the hoofs were sharp enough to cut a cow in half. The legs looked like really muscular deer legs and there were horns on the ground where the head originally was. The chest was that of something you would see in a Jason movie and it didn’t look like any animal I’ve seen ever and my dad was just as confused and scared as I was.

We called the police And they came and questioned us and then sent us to my grandmother’s house and they searched around and only found that Thing in my dad’s room.

We moved a month later to another area that’s surrounded by woods and not much happened there except a few ghost sightings and a few skinwalkers but other than that nothing as scary as that day on March 2007.

My House Was Haunted By A Demon!

Hey there what I’m about to say is 100 percent true, and I know many people say this but I swear this is true I still remember it so clearly so let’s begin.

This was during the summer of 2017 and I was 14, it all began when my granddad died and we took the car he died in our garage because my uncle did not want it! so everything is alright for the next couple of days until one day my grandma goes downstairs around 7:30 am and sees that all the windows are opened, which for me as really strange because the way my windows are is that they are two in one so you have to open the inner one to open the outside one.

This really made my grandma scared because she said it might be a demon! now here’s the thing about my grandma she is Bulgarian and very religious.

But my mom told her to calm down cause it was probably me or my brother or sister. But it was NOT. The next night nothing but on the 3rd night my mom woke up to someone choking here and she said she felt like it was someone with the pure passion for darkness, like a demon. Now, this got my grandma really scared so she went to her own house which now her daughter in law lives with her son.

Now here’s where it gets really freaky, well the way my house is situated we live in a small village in Bulgaria and its surrounded by deep, dark forests which you can get lost in. But we have neighbours beside us like there around 1 acre apart from us and the closest town is around a 10-minute drive and the closest city is around a 20-minute drive so if someone was going to murder us it’ll take the police 20 minutes because the closest town has no police!

And the last thing I want to say is how our house is laid out, so our main floor has no walls between the dining room, kitchen, and living room except for our bathroom.

our basement is really creepy because I just am always cold down there and my mom never lets us down there (she plans to lock the basement door and throw the basement door key away) and the second floor has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

So lets continue with the story so as usual nothing happens after my mom felt like someone was choking here but the night after that me and my brother who are thirsty want to go downstairs but we are scared so we decided to go together and we get our water and quickly run until our plates and glasses start falling and smah=shing into the ground but none can hear except for me and my brother!

We quickly run as fast as we can upstairs and run into our bedroom. the next day we tell my mom and she is really scared. So she calls our local priest and he starts cleansing our house but he says something powerful lives here with us and my mom asks what kind of thing lives here with us and he says a demon who feeds of our fear! So he blesses our house and says may god be with you and banish this demon and he goes away.

That night nothing happened and we thought it was over but my oh my how we were wrong.

The next night we experienced the most horrifying thing the demon started shaking me and my brother’s bunk bed and I and my brother were crying as loud as we can and my mom rushed in and it stopped. So she got really pissed at this demon and got out an Ouija board from out basement which was locked but she kept the key and she only told me and my brother to play while my sister slept.

Since I loved watching horror stories on youtube I knew what to ask so I said what is your name DEMON and it replied and said Atanas which is an old Bulgarian name and my brother asked it how did you die and it replied fire (BTW ALL MY FAMILY KNOWS ENGLISH), and then my mom asked it a question what do you want from us and it said life. So we quickly said goodbye and it said goodbye and we called the priest again and he did and an exorcism n our house and we had nothing bad happening to us which is great!

Thank you for listening I know this was a very long story but hopefully, you learn not to mess with Ouija boards and believe in the supernatural because its real!

Please dont use my real name! Btw i have more stories.

Passing the Devil

I’ve lived in New Jersey my whole life and have been an avid consumer of Jersey Devil lore and stories for as long as I can recall. The sighting I’d like to share is not my own, it was related to me some years ago by the driver of my school van. I went to a private school and so had a handful of the same drivers for years, all of which I got to know pretty well so it was the uncharacteristically reserved way in which she shared this story that caused it to stay with me through the years. For the sake of privacy since she still works in transportation, I’ll refer to her as “S”.

S’s husband has family in Southern New Jersey that they drive down to visit during the holiday season. This particular event had been for Thanksgiving and once things wrapped up, S and her husband got into their truck and started to head home.

I want to describe driving through the Barrens at night for those who have either never been or live out-of-state. It is not uncommon to have long stretches of road where there aren’t any street lamps or shoulder reflectors. This is high-beams country and beyond the lights of your car and the roadway just ahead of you is a dense wall of close pine trees and total darkness beyond, so if there’s any other source of light, no matter how small, it’s going to stick out like a neon sign. This is what S first noticed from the passenger seat, a bright, red point of light on the side of the road.

At first she thought that it might have been one of those red reflectors that people in the area use to mark the entrances to their driveways until she noticed that it was bobbing up and down in a regular fashion; whatever she was looking at, it was moving. As the truck quickly caught up, the lights revealed something moving down the road away from them. Her first impression was that it was a deer but as they gained on the animal she realized that everything about it was all wrong. She said that it, “had a long tail and moved like a kangaroo”, and as they passed it, S got a clear look at what she referred to “the creature”.

She said it was covered in a coat of short, dark-brown hair. The body was similar to that of a deer’s but slimmer, with longer hind legs and a long tail that swung back and forth as it ran. Its front legs did not hooves and gave the fleeting impression of what a deer might look like if its legs ended in primitive hands curved inwards, held halfway to the torso and bouncing with each stride. But it was the creature’s back and head that unnerved S the most. The back, she said, was covered over with leathery folds that looked like folded wings and that the face, in contrast to the rest of the deer-like form, was that of a goat, complete with two small horns and an eye that reflected red light back at her.

As quickly as the thing had been in view, the truck passed it, leaving whatever S had just witnessed behind on the dark forest road. She said that when she looked into her side mirror she could still see the eyes bobbing in the dark, reflecting the truck’s rear lights. She turned to her husband and said, “Tell me you didn’t just see that, too.” Eyes still on the road, he said, “I saw enough.”

Of the many reports I’ve heard since that time, S’s story still fascinates me because it isn’t about an alleged attack in the woods, a loud noise heard outside of a tent, or a shadow passing overhead. If this truly was the infamous Jersey Devil, it was behaving more like a flesh-and-blood organism than some supernatural boogeyman. Why would something that I’d always been raised to be scared of behave in such a contradictory manner? I guess the reason, like the Devil itself, is destined remain a mystery.

Fake friends

I’m alex I used to be a pretty laid back person but after this happened I normally stay inside

I was about 15 when this happened I was on the way back from my girlfriends party it was probably about 1 am I wasn’t drunk so I was in my car driving home and I started this car behind and I didn’t think anything of it until it started taking every single turn I took.

Its the next day now and i’m fixing the front door for my dad and as I am this woman comes up to me claiming she was my girlfriends friend and she was at the party last night and asked me if I could help her with something at her house I said yes so I followed her back to this weird looking abandoned house but I still go inside I turn around to see if she’s still following me but she was gone so I started thinking to myself to get out of there bit when I tried the door it was jammed

I began hearing laughter coming from the basement so I ran for the back door which was thankfully open I ran out of the back and all he way I was pretty out of breath as you can guess but when I got home I called the cops they checked out the place they found nothing but a knife and a machete I hope those guys are now in prison.

The Creature by the Window

Creature by the window

This story is 100% true. My name is Alex, my story takes place in my house where I still live today.

I was 6 years old when this happened. We recently bought a dog she’s a Pomeranian. She’s really sweet and she’s bigger than a regular sized Pomeranian.

I was home alone with my brother and the dog. It was night time and I was down stairs in my living room.

I was watching TV with my dog sitting right next to me when all of a sudden I felt like I was being watched. I looked around when I saw it a tall dark shadow of a thing. I couldn’t see any facial features on the thing.

I wanted to get a better look but when I stood up and started walking towards the creature  my dog blocked me. My dog started to growl and some how the creature sensed or heard my dog because it turned around. The first thing I noticed was its greenish glowing eyes. It was hunched over and and at least 6 foot tall.

The creature started to scratch the window. It had long thin fingers with giant sharp claws. It looked like it had no fur.

I wasn’t scared, I was curious. I got my flashlight and shined it on the creature. It’s face was the face of a dog but so wrong and messed up. I was frozen in fear when I saw its face. The creature screamed after I shined the flashlight. The scream sounded like a dog whimpering and a human scream mixed together. It was horrifying.

My dog started to bark when the creature screamed.

The creature stood up I couldn’t see the face anymore just its chest. I think it was about 8 feet tall. Then it ran away into the darkness at a unbelievable speed even though it was huge. It was gone in 10 seconds.

I ran upstairs and told my brother what happened. My brother said he heard nothing the whole time.

I didn’t get any sleep that night. The next morning I went outside to the window the creature had been at and I saw huge foot prints but I didn’t dare to follow them. Also I saw scratch marks on the window. I still live in the house today. I’m 13 now and I still have a clear picture of the creature in my mind.

That night I think I saw a skinwalker. I don’t care if you don’t believe this story but I now what I saw that night.
