the smiling man in my hallway

I was around 16 when this incident occurred, as a kid I used to live with my grandma in a village which was quite popular and definitely wasn’t known for any recent break ins or anything like that.

It was around 3AM one particular night. I was up late (as I always would be) just playing fortnite with my friends when suddenly the light in my room went out. Of course I was a little spooked but I shrugged it off as my bulb just needing replacing, around 30 minutes later I needed to use the bathroom so I opened my door to a dark hallway and started feeling around for the light switch.

When I found the switch and flicked it on, I found the the hallway light also wasn’t working, but again I just assumed it was an odd coincedence so I took out my phone and used the flashlight on it to navigate my way to the bathroom, when I got to the bathroom light switch and attempted to turn it on I realised that light switch also wasn’t working, I found it difficult to convince myself that this was just another coincedence, no, in order for all of the lights not to be working but my TV to be working fine, someone, or Something, had to of been tampering with the house mains downstairs.

The ghost that never left

I used to live in the countryside in an old 18th century cottage, the overall setting of the place was nice and rural but in the winter is seemed like something straight out of silent hill because it was often foggy and the visibility was poor. It was the middle of December and I took my dog out for a walk down the tracks and roads but I was extra worried because it was dark and I only had a flashlight to see where I was going. I left the house and walked for about 15 minutes down the road, it wasn’t foggy which was good but it still gave me chills.

I had never seen or believed in any paranormal until this experience. As I kept walking I spotted a light almost like a candle just floating in mid air about 10 mitres in front of me, my dog froze in fear and started aggressively barking at whatever it was ahead. I wasn’t to scared at first until I noticed it started inching closer to me, so I decided to walk quickly back to the house looking back every few seconds to make sure the light wasn’t following.

I made it home safely and I couldn’t stop thinking about what the could’ve been or was it just my mind playing tricks. As I went to bed I couldn’t shake the feeling something was looking at me so I flicked the light on and sat staring in to space for a few minutes until I turned the light back off . I led there staring at the wall when all of a sudden a small light shone just outside my window seeing my room is on the bottom floor, I stumbled out of bed at to the window, as I looked my stomach dropped as I saw the same candle light as I did before and all of a sudden in went out and my room was pure darkness. I woke up the next morning to fund my windows open a few inches and from the point on I was paranoid.

Strange encounter in the Forest

This actually happened this year in January. We went this new year to my grandparent´s house to see some relatives and to visit them because we are barely able to normally. They live in a small village with around 300 other People. Most of them are around my Grandparent´s age. Beside a very old playground, there is a small shrine circa 1 kilometer away from the village. To reach it we always have to walk through a forest. I know it sounds kind of like a cliché but it´s quite dark in there even when it´s still daytime.

We arrived around 4 pm, so it was already quite late and we still had to wait for most of our relatives to arrive. My brother, let´s call him Ryun for now, suggest that we should visit the shrine with the children that are already here so that they don’t get too bored because honestly there isn´t really much to do in my grandparent´s house. We asked around if anyone wants to come with us and in the end, we were six people in total.

Ryun, my girlfriend and I were the oldest so we kept an eye on the children who were walking with us. Ryun walked a bit behind the group and my girlfriend and I were walking ahead. The reason why Ryun walked behind us was that in this area are a lot of stray dogs and we wanted to make sure that the kids were safe because the oldest one was our ten-year-old sister and she is only 4 foot 4. If a stray dog would approach them they wouldn´t be able to defend themselves and we would probably too far away. So to prevent any incidents we always walked like this.

Something in the Trees

Let me start by saying I am a staunch skeptic. Even growing up in a heavily superstitious and religious family, I always looked for the most logical reasoning behind everything. Despite all that, there is one night I have never found any rational explanation for.

About six years ago, my then boyfriend (We will call him Chad for anonymity) and I lived in a small house on the outskirts of town. It was a little run down, but it was still decent, with a detached garage, and a nice back yard for our dogs. We even had a small creek at the edge of the property where the yard gave way to woods.

Considering that we were only 20 at the time, we often spent nights out with friends. On one of these nights, we were out with a mutual friend (we’ll call him john). We had all gone to another friend’s house together and were returning to ours around midnight. Mind you, we had not been drinking or under any influence. It had been a simple movie and card game night. Anyway, John had parked in our drive way and we were just sitting there talking before getting out so he could go home himself.

Creepy Encounter Near my University

I am a 24 year old female from Romania. At the time this event took place, I was 22 and attending a pretty big university in western Romania to get my masters degree.
Because it’s a masters program, the lectures take place in the afternoon to late at night.

So on this particular day, my lecture finished at 9pm, on a january night. I lived on campus, pretty close to the university building, about a 10 minute walk. My boyfriend also lived close. So after the lecture finished, I said good bye to my classmates and off I went.

I decided to take a shorter route, through a small park that was situated between the university main building and a church. After that day, i would never walk through that park alone at night…
