The colossal thing in the woods

Let me start the story off with a little background. My name is Noah and I live far out in the country, where you have to drive about 45 minutes to get to town. Or to any store, unless you’re going to a liquor store. So basically there’s nothing around but trees, and a small lake. I’ve always loved walking around in the woods, it’s calming. It’s always quiet, with the occasional birds chirping. It was the middle of summer in 2017, and I was 15. Walking around in the woods as I usually do, but things felt weird. I felt a certain stillness.

No sound, not even the birds. I brushed it off, since it wasn’t too bad. Keep in mind it was around 9:30 pm. When the sun was just going down, I would be out there until about 11:30 pm. My parents were always okay with it because they’d grown up there and knew the woods very well. My father even hunted in those same woods. That night I was walking around as usual and heard a loud crunch from behind, with instinct I jumped and turned around. But nothing was there, again I brushed it off as some animal. Like a deer or a coyote as I’d seen them wondering around here before and they never bothered me. I kept walking but something again, wasn’t right. I felt like I was being watched and not just the normal someone looking at you. I felt paranoid and very panicky. What I felt had it’s eyes on me wasn’t human, it was something way more sinister. I decided to go back to my house for the fear of something bad happening to me.

Fast forward about 20 minutes, and I’m back at home. I went to bed as usual, but woke up in the middle of the night. I looked at my clock and it was 3 am. I got up looking outside at the trees surrounding my house. But as I scanned the woods, I saw something; something glowing. Two bright yellow eyes, and it wouldn’t of been as bad if they weren’t nearly 7 feet off the ground! Otherwise I’d be able to assume it’s a wolf or something. But this, this was not something even remotely close to human or animal. I stared, unable to move, then it left. I didn’t sleep that night, I laid awake wondering what it was. The next day I decided to be dumb me and go out in the woods again, it’s Sunday night by the way. Around the same time I went out and walked around. Every so often I heard footsteps behind. Not normal light footsteps of an animal. Huge and loud footsteps. I instantly thought of the thing I saw last night, turned around and headed back home. When I heard another crunch, I looked behind me and there it was….. A huge creature. It had a wolf head, deer legs, huge human like hands but they had claws, it’s arms hung down nearly to the ground. It’s body was fuzzy and matted. It had yellow glowing eyes and sharp teeth. Every tooth was as big as a wolf’s canine tooth. I screamed louder than I’ve ever screamed before, and tried to back up slowly so I didn’t anger it with sudden movements, but I tripped and fell backwards. The creature growled loudly, not any normal grow. it sounded like clicking with the miss of a lion and a jet engine. Very deep and loud. I scrambled onto my feet and ran, I heard it behind me, it was so close I could feel it’s hot breath on the back of my neck. Then it’s low growl again, echoed through the forest, louder than before and I felt a sharp pain go down my back and I screamed in agony, but kept running. I couldn’t run much longer, I was out of breath and I wanted to collapse from the pain in my back. I finally reached the treeline and saw my house. But then I noticed everything was silent again, the creature was gone.

The Black and White Children

I have had strange experiences my entire life. I don’t know if they are paranormal, or some kind of Monster/Urban legend; I really don’t know but I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

I was just like any other 8 year old. Running around playing with my friends, being outside was always my favorite after school activity. To describe the lay out I am from a small town in Canada. Like really small, less than three thousand people including a couple of cows. I lived in a very tiny, newly developed subdivision. There was me, a few neighbors, and a field behind the house that seemed to go on forever. Throughout our little town and acres of farms there were abandoned barns. I had seen them all over and they were nothing special to me. They were two stories (the top being where they held feed), all made out of wood that was now rotting and generally they had small bits of a rusty red coloured paint that was mostly chipped away. All of them were abandoned a long time ago. There was one of these barns near my house, in the back field, tucked away in a little grove of trees; it was tucked into a little C shape of trees and had an opening about the size of a car you could get through to it.

I was out in the field playing by myself and running through the tall grass as I often did when I saw the barn. Now I had walked passed this barn hundreds of times with my friends and family…it was different now. It lost all it’s colour. It wasn’t that same brown wooden colour with some red it was black and white. The trees surrounding it, usually vibrant and green, now seemed pale and lifeless. I knew my mom wouldn’t want me playing in the barn as it was falling apart, but this one seemed together. Like it was newly built. (It’s probably good to note this was a time where your children would run around anywhere and parents were just kinda like “hey come inside before dark” and my parents were at work during this time).

Abandoned House Mystery

“I hope this is in the right format, because I really would love to share my story, I just recently wrote it down and it must finally be shared…” Thank you.

I have read many supposedly true horror/mystery stories over the years and many taking place in old abandoned places, so I decided it was time to share mine.
Unlike most “true” stories, I can assure with my entire being that everything and every detail is not only completely true, but the events are still discussed often amongst myself and those friends who also witnessed firsthand the following events, they still haunt us today and maybe someone out there has a better explanation of what we exactly witnessed…

I grew up in a small town in central New Jersey only a few miles from both the bay to the north, and the ocean to the east. What most people forget when they think of New Jersey today, is that it’s actually one of the oldest states in America and many cities and towns have very old sections and houses. Even pre revolutionary homes and buildings are not very uncommon throughout the state. My town had a very old part that was once the towns center. It was only 2 streets that crossed each other, and almost all of the buildings and homes in this small section are from the early 1800’s to around the civil war. Back when this part of town was built, the surrounding area outside of these 2 streets was nothing but farms. However, starting in the 1960’s the farms were steadily sold off to developers who built large homes and my town became rather affluent. Over the years some of the old houses and buildings, in particular the nicer ones and the 2 churches became protected, but others were still in private hands and either became offices or private homes. Except one.

Werewolf outside my tent – Duplicate

It was a rainy Friday night. My friend Maddi was over to stay the night in our tent that was placed in the backyard by the woods. Once we had got all our stuff in we started to eat since it was coming up 10pm.

It was around 12 am when we heard snarling. I froze I had that very uneasy feeling that this something was what I thought it was a werewolf.

“I hope it’s not what I think it is” said Maddi I slowly nodded I was about to continue but that’s when we heard the scariest, biggest ear piercing howl which made me jump out of my sleeping bag. Maddi was now full out crying I kept telling her that this werewolf won’t hurt us.

Werewolf outside my tent

It was a rainy Friday night. My friend Maddi was over to stay the night in our tent that was placed in the backyard. Once we had got all our stuff in we started to eat since it was coming up 10pm.

It was around 12 am I was ready out facts about werewolves since Werewolves are my favourite supernatural but that’s when we heard snarling. I froze I had that very uneasy feeling that this something was what I thought it was a werewolf.

“I hope it’s not what I think it is” said Maddi I slowly nodded I was about to continue but that’s when we heard the scariest, biggest ear piercing howl which made me jump out of my sleeping bag. Maddi was now full out crying I kept telling her that this werewolf won’t hurt us.

unwelcome guest – Duplicate

This happened many years ago, but I can still recall every detail vividly. Some back story. I am usually a skeptic when it comes to things like this, preferring scientific logic to explain what goes bump in the night. Sadly even I have no explanation. Anyways, at the time we lived in a 100+ year old farm house. The kind that has a coal chute and stone foundation. We lived in a small lake community in New York, so houses were close together. Sometimes too close.

I always had an uneasy feeling while living in the house. Like even when you were alone, you weren’t really alone. Despite the fact the basement was incredibly creepy…it had three separate rooms that had their own lights that had to be turned on individually…nothing ever happened there. I know, shocker. We’d occasionally see shadows out of the corner of our eyes, drop in temperature, hear random voices..but nothing too freaky.

One night when my kids where little, I went downstairs to get my youngest something to drink. I prepare the bottle and notice it’s unusually cold for summer. Not really giving it any more thought I make my way back to the staircase. As I got to the stair I looked up and immediately froze. It felt like my heart had just stopped and my muscles forget how to work. Standing at the top of the stairs, outside my kids bedroom was a tall, dark figure. When I say tall, I mean it almost touched the ceiling. I could tell it had a wide brim hat on. While it was dark-ish in the hallway/stairs…this thing was a shade of black so deep there was no mistaking it for something else.

Penny Pincher

So, this is a real-life monster I’ve come across recently, but for the longest time I was too ashamed to share it. Like, “I’ll-pee-in-my-boxers” kind of ashamed, because it frightened me, but others would only laugh. My psychologist tells me I need closure. So, here it goes…

I was at the new One World Trade Center Observatory, up there on the 102nd floor with all the other tourists, getting some fancy skyline pictures for my gym locker. That was when I noticed the radical little machine nearby. You put in an American dollar bill, and out pops a squashed copper penny with an engraving of the World Trade Center pressed into it. Tell me that ain’t psychedelic, man! So, I put in a dollar bill, and out oozed my fresh new penny, still warm with newness.

But wait… a dollar for a PENNY!? What the actual hell!? I mean, don’t get me wrong, undeniably it’s cool – it’s got a giant skyscraper pancaked into it for crying out loud – but that evil machine ate a whole dollar! And it was like an addiction. That penny-pinching monster wanted me to collect all eight WTC souvenir pennies, so in went seven more dollar bills to get the whole collection… of EIGHT PENNIES. Lord send me an angel, I did it. I fed the penny pincher. And the tour guides were just nodding their heads like, “oh yeah baby… we know… we know.” Spine-chilling as I write it.

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.
