My wife and I were sitting on the couch last night playing some PS4 together, a totally regular game night. Now, as I said in my last encounter, I’m scared of the dark because of what happened, and absolutely ALWAYS lock all of my doors and windows at night. Despite this, while we were playing PS4 I began to hear what seemed to be the meow of an injured cat. It sounded like it was on my driveway. I paused the game and my heart was pounding because any random noises at night now put me on edge. Being an animal lover I could only ignore the meowing for so long. I mean I love animals, what can I say?

My wife also wanted me to go outside and check on the cat. Since I haven’t told her what happened a few months ago (and still refuse to tell her) she doesn’t really understand just how truly terrified I am at night. After about half an hour of constant meowing I decided to at least TRY to man up. So I got off the couch and grabbed my flashlight. I nervously¬† crept to the window next to the front door and peaked out of the curtains ever so slowly. Without even using the flashlight I could see the silhouette of a cat at the very end of the driveway and breathed a sigh of relief. I started the process of telling myself to man up and began slowly unlocking the front door and stepped outside. At this point, I was kinda proud of myself for even stepping one foot outside at night. I literally hadn’t done that in months, usually I’m in bed well before 11pm as I really don’t want to be awake when all the freaks come out. Honestly, my last encounter changed my entire perspective on reality. How many other¬† fowl creatures creep around at night without no one ever seeing them? This is the single most terrifying thought to me. What kind of unimaginably terrifying things tap on my windows at night that I’ve never seen or heard? Lord, my heart is thumping right now..


Anyway, as I was saying; I took a step outside into the front yard and felt the chilly night air brush past my face for the first time in months. It was kinda nice actually, at first. As I took a few more steps down the driveway, the stupid cat ran away into the street. Well it can’t be all that injured, I thought.¬† Maybe it was just on heat or something? I turned around and quickly walked back inside. Just as I sat down and unpaused my game, the stupid cat started meowing AGAIN. After about 45 minutes of this all up, I’d had enough. I knew it wasn’t hurt, I mean it was basically trolling me, so I got up again with the intent of chasing it away this time, so I stepped outside, turned on the flashlight and walked down the driveway. I had actually forgotten about being nervous for a brief moment. As expected the cat ran away again when I got close and I, being slightly irritated, chased it into the street. As it ran into a long patch of grass it turned and looked at me and the flashlight caught it’s glowing eyes. For some reason I kinda got spooked when it did that. Now this is where things got weird….It turned it’s head and disappeared…Hang on, what the heck? There was NO WAY something just vanished, I mean the patch of grass was relatively small and from where I was standing it couldn’t have gotten away without me seeing it. There was the small patch of grass and a solid metal fence behind it. No holes and the fence was too high for it to jump

This is where alarm bells started going off in my head. Suddenly I was freaked out again and after last time, there was no way I was going to stand there a second longer. I turned around and started fast walking back towards my driveway. Just as I crossed the line to my property I began to feel that familiar feeling of deep, deep dread. I kept thinking, Why the heck did I come outside? How stupid are you? In that moment, just as that last thought crossed my mind, a fowl smell brushed passed my nose. It sounds so typical but it really did smell like death, garbage and vomit mixed together. I bolted up the driveway to the door as fast as I could, I truly felt as though a predator was about to pounce and rip my guts out, just like last time. As I reached the front door I felt a thick, humid pocket of air blow past me. All these things combined scared the living shit out of me. I knew that stupid cat was a trap, but the animal lover in me refused to let a potentially hurt animal suffer. As I slammed the front door shut I turned around to lock it and was horrified to feel something blocking it from properly closing. My stomach is dropping just thinking of it…There were a huge set of hairy grey fingers stuck in the door…Disgusting, yellowish claws at the end of the fingers. I almost pissed myself and turned back around, let go of the door and ran through the sun room, slamming that door shut instead and locking it. There was no way I was going to try fighting with this thing to close the front door. Luckily, the sun room door is only a few feet directly in front of the main front door. By this point my wife realised what was happening and she was sitting on the couch curled into a ball just crying.

I’m not even sure if this was the same thing as last time as I didn’t see it’s face (thank god) but none the less I was just as completely and utterly terrified as last time. The ‘thing’ was banging on the sun room door for what seemed like hours. It didn’t even make a single noise other than that. I’m gathering it was big, really big. That hand was just…So unnatural. It looked like a paw mixed with a decrepit old mans hand. My wife and I locked ourselves in the bathroom for the rest of the night, just holding each other. We didn’t say a word. She was obviously feeling the same deep terror as I was. At some point we must have fallen asleep because I woke up on the bathroom floor around 7am when the light started shining through the window. I cautiously went to the front door to check ‘it’ was gone and fully expected it to have ripped the house apart. Oh yeah it was gone alright, but my main front door had been ripped off it’s hinges. It was laying on the porch, splinters of wood and screws all over the place. I think I need to consult a pastor about this. I can’t live comfortably knowing that this thing is still out there. I feel like I’m back to square one in terms of dealing with this emotionally, I mean what do you do in this situation? My wife and I are scared. Now even during the day, because we know that with each passing hour, the sun is getting closer to setting…

Strange Things at the UPS Building

I was 19 years old and i had just moved out of my parents house and got a cheap apartment in west Virginia. and of course i needed to find a job to pay for the apartment. i was able to find a job as a security guard at the UPS shipping and storage facility it was basically a big warehouse where the trucks would come and pickup the packages to make there delivery’s the ware house sat on the edge of town right next to the woods. the pay was great i was making 20 dollars an hour. then one day my boss asked me if i would be willing to be the first one to work a night shift due to the fact there was an attempted break in the other night. I was skeptical about it at first but then he mentioned it would mean an extra five dollars an hour on my pay check so i decided i would do it.

The first night i met my boss outside the shipping facility at seven thirty right when it was starting to get dark. he handed me my keys to the building and told me that he had just put a shotgun in the security room for extra protection. And then it was just me all alone for the rest of the night it was pretty quiet for most of the night and i really enjoyed it i didn’t have to do much i mainly just watched Netflix on my phone the whole night. then at five o’clock in the morning my shift ended and i went home and slept the whole day after that one night i decided i really like the night shift. two weeks later im doing the same thing only this time i see something that changed my life forever. it was around midnight when i decided to take my lunch break then all of a sudden i hear a car alarm go off.
i jumped out of my chair it had scared the crap out of me i get up and go out to the parking lot to investigate. i open the door and i see my car sitting there and the windshield and driver side window had been broken i was extremely mad at first then all of sudden something darts out from behind my car and runs into the woods so fast i could hardly see it i run over to the woods and shine my flashlight into the woods and then the light falls onto this creature that was something unlike anything ive ever seen or heard of it was at least seven or eight feet tall and it had no hair on its body and its skin it wasn’t pink or white like a humans it was some what of a dark purple its head was hunched over and it had glowing red eyes and large teeth and claws on its arms. it stood there for about four seconds directly in the light enough for me to get a good look at it then it started to run i drew my ruger 357 magnum as fast as i could and fired blindly into the woods in the direction i saw the creature ran when the gun was empty i ran back to the building and locked the door behind me i ran into the security room and i was panicking not knowing what i had just saw i was terrified i was wondering if it would come back or not what was it and where did it go so many things ran through my head for the rest of the night. and i dont think i put my gun down the rest of that night. the next morning my boss shows up and asked what happened to my car i told him some kids had thrown rocks at it and ran into the woods before i could catch them. thankfully it was the weekend now which gave me time to reflect on this and it also gave me time to get my car fixed. i spent that weekend browsing the internet looking at all types of weird creatures and none of them looked like this creature it wasn’t a Bigfoot it wasn’t a werewolf and it wasn’t an alien it was completely something else. when the weekend passed and it became time for me to work again i was somewhat scared and didn’t want to go and part me was saying to quit my job but instead i sucked it up and went back to work and i didn’t see that creature again at least while i was working that is.

Several months have passed by now and it is now late fall i haven’t seen or heard of the creature since that one night. and i had somewhat forgotten about it and moved on. deer season was going to be coming up soon and i was excited to go and i was looking for grounds to hunt on i was hoping to find private land to hunt on so i didn’t have to worry about running into other hunters. i asked my boss if i could hunt in the woods that sit next to the shipping facility i was happy when he said yes it would mean i would have those woods all to myself and the shipping facility sits on about 30 acres of private land most of which is woods. the week before the season came in i put out three trail cameras hoping to figure out where the deer were moving camera one and two sat in a large flat area with few trees and i can see i far distance those two cameras where seeing the most deer and i even saw giant black bear too. camera three was in a spot where there was a lot thick brush and trees and i had hardly seen anything on that camera. i had talked to my boss and he allowed me to take two weeks off work to hunt. on the first day of the season i headed to the shipping facility where i parked my car and walked into the woods. i was sitting in this make shift blind i built that oversaw a great distance of the woods it was the perfect spot. on the first day i got lucky and was able to take a doe at fifty yards away i had made a great shot on her with my lee enfield sporting rifle. the first week of the season was pretty good i was able to kill another doe and i even killed a large ten point buck i saw on one of my cameras. on the last day of rifle season i decided i would stay there from sun rise to sun down it was quiet most of the day a couple of doe here and there but nothing exciting. it was getting towards the end of the day finally i had about forty minutes of light left. then all of a sudden i see something running through the woods. it was that black bear i had seen on my cameras. i quickly pull up my rifle and fire two shots at it. i didn’t know if i had hit or not. i wait for a little bit and then i here the bear do what is called a death moan its something that bears do when there dying. i felt bad for it i didn’t want the animal to suffer so i got up and tried to find the blood trail i found blood and a lot of it more then there should have been. i followed it for awhile then it eventually led to the bear but when i got there and looked at the bear something was wrong. it didn’t have any bullet holes there were claw marks all over the bear some where three inch deep cuts. it was horrifying i immediately knew what did this it was the same creature that i saw months ago. that i thought i scared off. then i hear this horrible roar behind me i turn around and there is the creature about twenty yards away standing it what little of daylight was left. it was staring right at me i believe that the creature recognized me from our last encounter. i raise my rifle to fire at it and it jumps away and behind the trees it starts running from tree to tree using it as cover not giving me a clear shot. there was little daylight left and it was getting to the point where i could barley see. its pretty far walk back to the car i put my hand lamp on and i fire another shot right next to the creature hoping to scare it. then i start running to the car i can hear it running with me its keeping its distance but it was toying with me it was hunting me. i get to the point where i can see the outdoor lights from the building i thought for a second im almost there then i here the creatures running get closer i quickly look behind me and there is the creature right behind me and it is about catch up to me. then i spin around and fire at the creature it stops and touches it shoulder where i hit it then it roars at me and then runs away i continue running to the shipping facility i finally make it to my car and then all of a sudden i hear another roar this one is different though its deeper its almost like a wail a wail of pain and i took some comfort knowing that the creature got hit and might possibly die from that gunshot.

About a week later i go back into those woods in the daytime to retrieve my trail cameras and to see if there was any sign of the creature there still. i checked for blood of the creature and possibly a body but i never found either of those a checked where the carcass of the dead bear was and it was completely gone. i grab all three of my trail cameras and head home when i got home i checked the SD cards on cameras one and two there was the usual deer on them but camera three had something else on it ill let you look at for you to see. ever since that one night i quit working the night shift at the UPS shipping facility and decided i was better off if i find somewhere else to hunt. im sorry i cant come up with a better name and description of what i saw but what i say is true it was a completely unknown creature. But if there is one thing ive learned from this experience is to keep a very open mind.

The Thing in DeBary Swamp

I’m a 15 year old guy, and I live in a remote part of Florida, Back when I was 13, I would always go hiking into the woods with my friends.

To Start this off, My name is Blake and the other person who witnessed this alongside me is Liam. We used to go hiking together into the woods on weekends to wind down and relax, or just to have air-soft wars in the drier parts of the woods.

So after a long day of fishing, we were unpacking our gear, as the sun was beginning to set. When Liam noticed something strange with the tackle box we had brought along with us. “Hey Blake, Come Check this out..” I came over, a little annoyed as I was still setting up the tent and it was a pain in the ass to pitch. “What is it -” I stopped as I now saw the long scratch-marks that were engraved in the top and side part of the now mangled tackle box. “What the hell happened here?” I asked still examining the scratches, still trying to figure out what animal had tried to get into our box. “I don’t know, but it was like this when we had come back to set up our tent.” I was now a little on edge, thinking that there could now be a bear in the area.

“Keep your knife close by when you go to sleep tonight.” I said, clutching my pocket knife I had brought along.

We then made the fire and started talking, after a little while, the thoughts of earlier had drifted to the back of my mind, until we both heard what sounded like the footsteps of an animal coming from the underbrush, we both looked over at the source of the noise, thinking about what it could be.

Those footsteps were to loud to be anything like a raccoon or a squirrel. So we had our knives out, just in case it was a predator stalking us, but what emerged from the underbrush, still haunts me to this day…

A tall, thin, and pale looking creature made itself known to us, it had claws that were bigger than any that I had ever seen. It didn’t have eyes, only dark pits of where the eyes should’ve been, but I knew it was staring at us.

It then made this ear-piercing shriek and started charging at us.

I then did the only logical thing I thought to do and threw the tackle box at it in a quick attempt to distract it, as soon as the box hit the creature, Liam and I made a mad dash towards the bathroom building that was in the camping area, and we locked ourselves in there. We didn’t get an ounce of sleep that night, still hearing the wild pattering circling the building and occasionally hearing the creature’s shrieking and clawing at the outside walls of the little building we were in.

I was afraid that it was going to come through the door at any given second. We had stopped hearing the shrieking and the wild pattering outside, but we still waited to go outside until the sun rose, just in case it would be awaiting us.

When we did emerge from our temporary safe haven, we saw claw marks all over the door and walls of the little building,

we then made our way back to our camp slowly and hesitantly, when we had gotten back, everything was destroyed and thrown everywhere, we then turned around and gotten out of there as quickly as possible, not wanting whatever that thing was to return. When we had gotten back to my house, we decided it would be best to never speak of the events of that night again.

I think that what we had saw, was the Rake. But I will never forget those Dark Pits, staring into my soul.

The giant

Hi all, I just wanted to share something with you that has receny happened to me.

I live in the suburbs of Budapest, Hungary, in a small town about fifteen minutes from the city. They call it a town, but really it’s just an overgrown village. It has the feeling to it and all. Lighting at night is scarce, but, and this might be the source of my luck here, our street is pretty well lit. Why I think it’s lucky?

A few days ago I had to move out of my room and take refuge in the guest bedroom, so my room can get repainted. The guest bedroom is small, almost claustrophobic, and it has one large window, through which I can see most of our neighbors’ houses on the other side of the street. Our flat is on the forst floor of the building, a nice two flat house with a big garden, though it’s mostly empty. My room’s window looks directly onto the garden, but the guest bedroom faces the street, which enabled my experience.

One night, as I was trying to sleep despite my insomnia, I started hearing a strange, pulsing sound, like someone turned on loud music at one of our neighbor’s. But this sound was weird. It followed no particular pattern or beat, and yet, it felt strangely familiar.

It wasn’t until i realised it was getting louder, and movong closer that it was the noise of something big walking down the street on two legs. Out of curiosity, I was already at my window, bathing in the lamplight coming from outside, when I spotted it.

The creature was vaguely humanoid with smooth, grey skin, a head, devoid of facial features or any hair, and four arms, the second pair sprouting from the sides of its ribcage. It didn’t look emaciated, but I could still see its bones beneath the skin. In fact, it looked oddly muscular, as if posing while strolling down the street.

Oh, i forgot to tell the most important bit. This thing was huge. We live on the first floor, and I was lookong upwards from my bed through my window, but I still had to go closer tl the window to look at its head. This thing was at least twenty feet tall, possibly bigger, and there it was, walking down our street in the middle of the night, calmly, looking around with its eyeless face, stopping occasionally to take a peek inside a house, then continuing its stroll.

I wasn’t scared at first. My reaction was closer to “what the actual fuck?!”, but that quickly turned to fear as it turned my way, it’s featureless face staring in my general direction. Realising I was still in the lamplight, i quickly retreated, and watched on from the shadows.

The giant walked to our house, and took a good, long look at it. It stood there for at least ten minutes, seemingly scanming the house for something. I dared not move, lest it notice me, and god knows what it would’ve done to me. So I just stared, terrifoed, at this monstrosity, its four arms dangling idly beside it as it looked at me with that featureless face. Sorry for repeating it so much, but I stared at it for so long the picture burnd into my retinas, and when I close my eyes, I can still see that face staring into my soul.

I’m scared. It’s night again. I cant hear the footsteps, havent heard them since that night, but I fear one night I might awake to it staring into the guest bedroom, looking at me. I’m afraid to sleep.

I don’t know if anyone else has seen it, and if they have, are they just too afraid to talk about it, and at this point, I’m afraid to ask. I don’t know where this creature came from, or where it goes during the day, but I want it gone for good.

… Just as I’m typing the end of this, I hear the footsteps coming again. I hope it doesn’t notice me.


Not what I expected

Hello everyone.

At the begining I think I should introduce myself a little. I’m from Poland and for six years I’m a member of one of the biggest paranormal investigating teams in country. Sometimes people call to us and ask for help with things that they think are “paranormal”. I’ve got a lot of cases, files, photos and recordings of strange things and creatures. But this time I’d like to tell you about one of the weridest cases I’ve ever seen.

It was four years ago. I live near Czech and German borders, at the mining comunity. One day I returned from work and saw a new E-mail from HQ. They wanted me to investigate a call from village, almost at Czech border. It was some way from me but I lived closer to it than anyone else. So, the call was about suspected ghost activity. Not in one home but in entire village. From the intelligence HQ send me I tought it was a powerfull Poltergeist. I packed up ghost hunting equipment and got on my way. It took me about two and a half hour to get to the place.

At my arrival I saw small, quiet village. Only about ten houses, no shop or even a bus stop. I made a circle trough the village, just for some fun. Then moved to adress HQ gave me. It was preety, wooden house, in the middle of the village. A young man opened me the door.

He said that he and his wife moved in about month earlier. He was a writer and this place was perfect for him to work at his books. But there was something that made him and his wife really scared. They said that at nights they hear werid noises comming from the woods. And that the ghost is making even some things from the home dissapear.

As we finished talking I went to a walk. I walked around, near the forests border, looking for anything strange. I’ve found some wolf, deer, rabbit and fox footprints, nothing special. But then I saw something… strange. At one tree there was huge, deep scratches. Like a bears. But there aren’t bears at that part of the country. There was small lake near this tree so I just thought some animal came to drink water from it and for some reason scratched this tree.

After a while I came back to the village. I’ve setted up cameras, the hidden, hunting ones on the trees, put some sound recording devices and setted up a base in the barn. I was sitting, watching the cameras and drinking energy drink. Suddenly I saw something strange at one camera, like something crawled through the grass, moving to the house thhe writer lived in. I am really cautious when it comes to things like that so I grabbed my bowie knife, which blade I managed to cover with silver and quietly moved to this house. As I wanted to take a good look at this “ghost” i got a ladder and climbed to the rooftop of the house.

At the point I was thinking that this “ghost” is just someone kidding around. But this was huge mistake… I crawled to the end of the rooftop and started observing the area. For a moment I didn’t saw any movement but then… then I saw it. Humanoid animal, it’s skin was pale, a little bit blue. It looked really skinny and I saw that It has very long fingers. Not like the claws or something, just normal, very long fingers. It looked almost like a regular human being, but more… meateatting. Like it was created to hunt and eat living creatures.

For a moment I didn’t knew what to do. I just stared at It. I’m glad It didn’t saw me or felt my presence in any other way. As fast as I could without making noise I got out the roof and runned to my base. I grabbed a stick, poured some oil on it and lighted it. Then I rushed to the field.

This… thing was there, almost touching the wall of the house. When it saw me, first it looked like It didn’t expected meeting anyone. Then, it made strange, long and loud scream and took off the way it came. It was really fast. Good thing it got scared. I don’t think I could kill it with a torch.

Next morning I spoke to the owner of the property. I told him what I saw and that there are no ghosts involved. Both of us agreed that we can’t leave it like that. But there wasn’t much more that I culd do there. So I just gave him some tips, like how to secure his house, set up traps and stuff like that. And left the place, a little bit unsatisfied.


This is one of the cases I’ve never solved. And untill today I don’t know what I saw.
