Whistling Man

This happened about seven months ago. I was walking home from my friend’s house, it was about 9:00 at night. Because it was winter, the sun was already gone at that time of day. I was walking on a concrete trail that led into a small but dense forest.
The trail was lit only by wavering street lights, which failed to light the dark woods. I was walking with my hood on and my hands deep in the pockets of my loose unzipped sweatshirt, humming a tune, when I heard a sound.
It was a low whistle. It came from behind me, so I turned. Nothing was there.
Unnerved, I continued walking, but stopped humming.
And then the whistle came again. I turned around, and saw that all the street lights behind me were off except the one closest to me. It was as if something was following me, turning off the lights as he went.
I began running. But then the whistle came again but closer this time. I turned to face whatever it was, and saw a figure standing in the light of the only streetlight behind me that was still lit. The figure was tall, and dark. Too dark. I knew it was standing in the light, but it was not illuminated at all. It was totally black, as if on a different layer, or pasted on an image.
It just stood there, staring at me, and whistling occasionally, while I watched it, too scared to move. We watched each other for a few minutes, and then it tilted it’s head to the side, and the light above it went off, sending me and the rest of the forest into darkness. The whistling stopped.
A few seconds passed, and then the lights came back on again. The figure was gone. I whimpered, and ran the rest of the way home. My parents didn’t believe me of course. Who could blame them? But every now and then, when I’m in bed at night, I swear I can hear whistling coming from my window. And one time, I turned and looked out my window, and barely saw a black figure, with a faceless white mask, watching me.

The man in the woods

This only happened a few months ago, summer was only starting so the nights were getting lighter, I decided to take my long walks around a park close to my house. I live in a very small town, so it was never busy and you would only find the occasional dog walkers. I liked the peace and quiet.
One time, it was getting late, still light so my mum allowed me to go out for a walk but I had to be back for a certain time. The park had a large woods surrounding it so I would usually explore that, I hardly ran into people but this one night was a terrifying exception.
I decided to go a way that led off the main path deeper into the woods, I’m not actually sure why but it was just a sudden urge of curiosity. I was casually strolling around, enjoying the quiet, until I heard what sounded like whistling, I initially thought it was a bird but the whistling sounded too perfect, it was a familiar song but I couldn’t figure it out. I was extremely stupid and decided to keep walking around, passing it off as just another person walking, although it was extremely uncommon.
It didn’t last long until I heard it again, but this time it was louder and close.
I instantly freaked out and decided to head back, I didn’t think the worst would happen but I did assume it was someone’s pulling a prank.
I paced back but froze dead in my tracks when I saw a man in the treeline, staring at me with dead eyes and the widest smile I’ve seen, he looked insane.
I kind of pretend I didn’t notice him but I did speed up much more, not wanting him to start running.
I heard him moving slowly by the sound of twigs snapping and leaves crunching.
I turned round, he was at a distance meaning he must of stopped following me but he was definitely staring at me.
Stupidly I decided to stay and stare back.
Then he started to run at me, I screamed and ran as fast as I could imagine, I’m not sporty but I didn’t know I could run so fast at this point. Luckily I wasn’t extremely deep into the woods so I was on the main path quickly, I couldn’t hear any more footsteps so I decided to catch my breath, just pacing back home. I was almost out the woods until I heard it, the same whistling, it sounded like it was coming from everywhere. I started to run again and thankfully got home to my extremely worried mum who called the police. I gave a description of the man but they never got back to us, I’m guessing he wasn’t caught but all I can say is, I’m glad I survived, whatever he was planning.

The creepy whistle man encounter

** please note english is not my first language

It was may of 2015. It was around my birthday, I was having a few friends over to spend the night at my house to watch scary movies and go to bed at ungodly hours (still guilty of all of this). There is a park behind my house, so when it was dark, at around 10 or 11 pm, we decided to hang out there a little before starting our movie night. The park was empty, so we were laughing, talking and messing around as usual when we noticed a figure wearing a hoodie, watching us from the fence. He gave us an uneasy feeling, but we thought nothing of it at first. After a good 20 minutes of still talking, we noticed he didn’t move, still watching us from the fence.

At this very moment, we started to get creeped out. So I, thinking creepy stalkers were just happening in movies I like to watch, not here, in my little canadian town, decided to go ask him what he wanted. As I get closer, I get a creepy feeling. ‘’May I help you ?’’ I said. He said nothing, but did a step behind. I walked a little closer to him, he stepped back again. At first finding this situation funny and entertaining, I was now annoyed and scared. ‘’Why are you watching us since we got here?’’ He started walking away, so I ran after him, (I know, not very smart). As he started running, he got a whistle out of his pocket and started to blow in his whistle, as he did that, two cars got out at full speed of streets away, I started to run, screaming to my friends to run also. The park is behind my house but we had to go around the block to get there since there was fences separating us from the park, but we could not go back at my house without passing by the cars now slowly looking for us, but there was a hole in the fence. Two of my friends went through the whole, but me and my other friend were scared we would not pass, so we hided behind a tiny tree, which was just fine since it was dark outside. Seeing the cars by the park got us freaking out, so we decided to give it a shot and go through that damn hole. I made my friend go first, I went after and we ran to my house.

We did not call the police and I don’t know why. Something was really up that night. I could not say for sure what was this all about but there was nothing good.

Public park encounter

This is a short but freaky experience that happened at my local park. I live in a small, developing town that has a fairly large public park with a lot of forest trails. There’s usually at least 10 other people there whenever I go, but it was around 9 pm when this story occurred, so the park was mostly empty. We had been heading back to the car to head home. I ran to get a head start in front of my two friends. They decided kept walking fairly slow and lost track of where I had gone, so once I got to the front, I was alone for another 5 minutes or so. I thought it would be funny to mess around with them a bit and hid on the other side of the public bathrooms. As I sat there, a man in an old beat up car pulls up and parks in an empty spot about 20 feet away from me. He comes over and starts trying to chat me up. “What are you doing sitting out here? You bored?” he asked. My heart instantly sank and I pulled the “I’m waiting for my mom to come. She’s almost here.” He laughed a bit and said something else, but I don’t remember exactly what. It was all small talk, and then he went to go to the restroom. These restrooms were loud and echoey, so you could hear if someone was doing their business or turning on the sink. This man went in and it was silent as he sat there for a few minutes. When he went in I called my friends silently on my phone and tried whispering to them to hurry up. It took another few minutes for them to find me, and during this time, the man came out and headed to his car. He got into the driver’s seat, turned it on and sat there watching me. My friends were cutting across the grass, which you could see from where he was parked. He then pulled out and left and I ran over to my friends, freaked out. It doesn’t seem that scary, and it was a quick experience, but I wonder what may have happened if I wasn’t able to get ahold of my friends.

Lost

I do know that being lost is very very veeerrryyy normal,but being lost inside a park at night,to until whatever time it is…. kinda scary cause I was so young when this happened. I was playing in the park like normal kids would do,I did have adult supervision but I don’t know why she left me all in my own. So I was just playing and having fun THINKING that she was like nearby at least, you see when I do something like playing or being a bit far from my parents or any adult with me I always look back to see if they’re still with me. Yes I know you’re thinking that is really ummmm weird, but I just don’t like being lost. So I was playing I looked down to see if she (the adult I was with) was still there, I didn’t see her,so I looked around still couldn’t find her. I went down and looked again,still couldn’t find her. I started to get a bit creeped out and started having tears on my face so I just left the playground and started looking for my mom and our houseworker but still couldn’t find them. But then some women told me something i can’t remember what it was. But then I think I started looking with them for my mom? But then I don’t know how I ended up in a cab with someguy. He I think ashes me something like me being but I remember saying something like “I’m looking for my mommy” he said to me about the women who talked to me earlier he thought they were or one of them were my mom, I said “no”. But I don’t remember how I found my mom, but I’m glad that I did.

Stranger Danger

3 years ago, me and my friends, about 3 were walking in the park at midnight, we were joking or goofing off. It was very fun. Me and one of my friends went to the restroom as my other friends waited outside the bathroom.

When we were done washing out hands, we heard banging in one of the stalls, we jumped in shock. We both turned around and went to the stall we thought the sound came from. We knocked on the stall but there was no answer at first.

10 seconds later,we tried again and asked if anyone was there and needed some help, there was still no answer. We then shrugged it off and walked out the restroom. Me and my friends continued walking around the park, playing around.

The Blue Hood

I live in a town called Bury, north of Manchester in England. It’s a rather peaceful town, not much happens. We are all normal people with normal lives, so this event was so strange that I HAD to share it somewhere.

This happened about 2 weeks ago, it was a normal day. I was meeting with some of my best friends and we were going to Dow Lane, a popular park in town, it’s not much – just a long greenery with trees and a footpath to one side with a wooden fence next to it protecting a private reserve. I’m not saying I cared much for that fence, but when we reached Dow Lane we noticed some graffiti tags had defaced the entire thing. It was a simple but sinister face, one large circle with two small circles for eyes and a cross for a mouth painted with black and blue spray paint, sometimes the faces were accompanied by the letters ‘BH’.

At first me and my friends didn’t take note of the tag, it could be a bunch of kids with spray paint being ‘artistic’ again, which was not an unheard of thing locally speaking. However as we followed the path further along towards the stream at the end, we saw the tag more often, on the fence again, on an old burned park bench behind the line of trees that hid it from the play area and faded but visible on the gravel path itself; at this point we knew something was interesting here. Somebody had gone to all that effort for a simple (ugly) tag.

I got baited and now I’m paranoid – part one

I believe I should probably provide some detail of my circumstance in order for you to ascertain my thinking behind some of the decisions I have taken in the last few weeks. I am currently working on an assignment for my job which has required me to work at the opposite end of the country, it’s confidential contract work so I cannot say too much without getting into trouble, not that it’s relevant but it pays well and requires me to be in one location which just happened to be the other end of the country. It’s not all bad though, I have my own place in the suburbs of the town which they cover the rent for.

However, being away from friends and family, I often find myself bored and without things to do when I’m not at work – so I’d been feeling for a while I needed a change of pace, some sort of adventure just to excite my life a bit.

Anyway, back to why I’m posting on here. I’ve had a small series of events occur in my life as a result of my own curiosity and, as I’m a regular reddit reader knowing the collaborative capabilities of the community, I was wondering if anyone had any idea whether I should continue to be worried?

Family curse

I have few more stories from my own experience as well as those from my acquaintances. But first start wid one legend that revolves around my family.

I m from the state of Assam,India. My ancestors first were settled in this small town in assam by then ruling king. According to the stories i listen from my older family members as well as by elderly neighbours my first ancestor who settled here was a priest . He mastered all kinds of tantric spells and stuff. Earlier he used to live with his family in neighbouring village of the capital , a neighbour to the then minister of kings court.

Once while on a visit to his village the minister happens to notice my great great grandpa sitting by a pond fishing. The minister who ws his childhood friend asked jokingly hey priest boy what are you searching for?fowls n chickens? My ancestor looked at him smiled a little and pulled out the fishing rod and there ws a live chicken flattering its wings trying to get loose from the hook. There ws another incident where he tried to change the course of a flooded river with his tantric power. The spell ws so strong and as in such white magic everything is allowed except messing wid nature ,he lost his hearing ability.

Those were the days when kings were expanding the territory and my present hometown was inhabited by tribals who too were very good at their own level of magic. They used to pet what we call in our language ‘beera’ kind of poltergeist that were able to defend their territories from kings army. The news of my ancestor happens to reach kings ear and he called him to his court and told him that because of powerful spells we have trouble crossing the river and conquering their land and if u can counter their spell i will grant u n ur family lands and riches and temples . My ancestor suceeded in that attempt and the land was conqured. We now own that same land king granted us.

Night at the park

I am a 15 year old guy, when this occurred i was 9, i’ll just say i live in a small town somewhere in the countryside of england
It was my brother’s 12th birthday, we and his friends were thinking to go to a park about 20 mins from us, our mum warned us not to go there too late, but we didn’t listen, we just hung out a bit at our house before going out, just 20 mins later near the park I pointed out it was pretty dark, i looked at my watch and it was already 22:00
but i wasn’t worried about it, the park gate closes at about 30 past so we had some time,
but when we played hide & seek for those 30 mins it felt like just 10, we walked back thinking its still open but it was shut, my friend said wee should stay there for an hour and then we’ll climb out above the gates, we all agreed, we went to the lake across the park, just looking at the stars, i looked across the lake and there was a mysterious black figure looking at us, he had a rusty old iron blade, i tried to tell my brother but fear sealed my mouth shut,i started pointing at that guy, then my brother saw him, the black figure started sprinting at full speed, straight for us, my brother screamed, “RUN! SOMEONE’S CHASING US!”, then i started a full on sprint going after the older ones, the mysterious figure called out, “Come here you Bitches, when I catch you I’ll slit your throats”, we started running even faster, fear made my legs tremble, i nearly fell over, finally we found our selves near a fence, we climbed on a tree as fast as we could, and jumped across the fence, my friend hung him self on a spiky edge of the fence with his shirt, but after few seconds of wiggling his shirt ripped apart, then it was my brother’s turn to jump, he has hung himself too but succeeded on not ripping his shirt, after we were all behind the fences we ran as fast as we could to the main road, I checked the time, it was 23:48,we headed straight home, when we arrived we laughed about it, but i was paranoid, i checked if all the doors and windows down stairs were locked multiple times.
