The thing in the Basement

I am not the best at writing but I will do my best to tell this story.

When I was 22, I was at my friend’s house and I forgot his name. Let’s call hm Joe for this story. Joe had a basement, the creepiest I’ve ever seen. Joe and I picked which one of us will lock ourself in the basement for 15 minutes. Unfortunately, I got picked.

I went down to the basement, locked myself in and waited. Once my eyes adjusted to the darkness, I saw lots of boxes with some of Joe’s old stuff, papers and drawings. In one of the boxes, I saw a head poking through the box, which I thought was a creepy toy to scare friends. The face was bony, had grey skin, long nose and huge white eyes. Apparently, the face was stuck so I put the box next to me. Probably 2 minutes later, which felt like hours, arms came out of the box. I WAS SCARED. Maybe 30 seconds later, the whole body came out of the box and I screamed for Joe to unlock the door but he obviously laughed, thinking I was just imagining things. I hid behind some of Joe’s boxes, waiting it out. I had goosebumps all over my body and I was shivering! 1 minute later, I saw the white eyes peeking above the box. Just as I screamed, Joe opened the door and the eyes were gone. Hey, the 15 minutes are up Joe said. Are you okay he asked. Yeah, I muttered in fear. Now I always see the thing in my dreams and at the corner of my eye whenever I am in my basement day or night. Hopefully, this will all stop soon.

The thing at the window

I live in the North East of England, on a farm, miles from the nearest town/city. Usually, it is rather peaceful. The closest I had ever came to danger (before this event) was when a Fox started headbutting my front door. I wanted to let it in, but as soon as it saw me it bared it’s teeth. So I let it continue until it knocked itself out. Afterwards, I contained it and placed it away from my house, I didn’t want my Rottweiler (Remus) to suffer any damage, since he is really protective of me. That was my most dangerous/scariest encounter with an animal, until now…

Two weeks prior to this event, Remus’ behaviour started to become… strange. He usually lays atop of me when I’m in bed; however, he became restless. Every night, he began to patrol the house; never sleeping or stopping at his water bowl. I’d hear him growl every once in a while, but I just assumed it was either a Bird or Hedgehog that he would growling at. My house is quite large, with a lot of windows, except for my bedroom; I didn’t like the idea of someone potentially knowing when I was sleeping.

During the day, I began to notice that there were a lot less creatures about. The farm that I live on stops at the edge of a forest; so creatures like Deers and Badgers tend to come onto my land. I have no problems with this, since they don’t bother my Horses. About one week prior to this event, a Policeman came knocking at my door; a first time experience for me. He asked me if I had noticed anything abnormal, so I told him about the lack of animals; not thinking about Remus’ change in behaviour. After I told him this, he proceeded to tell me that the people who lived closest to me (about four miles away) had reported that all of their sheep had been slaughtered. After I heard this, I immediatey became concerned about my Horses. I thanked him for letting me know. Immediately, I moved the Horses’ stables closer to my house; if I saw anything, I could get out there. There was only one problem… you aren’t allowed guns in England! Meaning that if something were out there, I’d have to face it with either a small hatchet, or my fists. I prayed that I never recieved a visit from the thing that had killed all of those Sheep.

The Shadow in pitch dark

This story is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. Not because of the way it looked, just how it made me feel. It was that overwhelming sense of paralyzing fear you get when you are in the presence of pure evil that I will always remember. Now please sit back and let me tell you my TRUE paranormal encounter.

I had had a long day at school and wanted more then anything to get to my bed at home and to collapse in it and start my weekend. I got home and of course what I wanted didn’t happen. I had to come home and do chores like my dad wanted and do the huge amount of homework that was given to me by teachers. By the end of the day I was in a bad mood, I was tired and worn out and just wanted to be alone, but of course I have siblings and they wouldn’t let me go to sleep. So of course I got more agitated and I am certain that the way I felt attracted this evil presence.

By the time I got to bed it was late, I can’ t remember which time I fell asleep or passed out but I do remember what happened as clear as day. I woke up around 3:40 ish and I didn’t even realize that I had fallen asleep until my groggy mind started to clear up. My vision went to fuzzy to clear and that’s when I saw IT. For some reason our bedroom door was open and I had a clear view of the hallway and stairs. I saw a black figure coming up the stairs, very slowly. I was so scared I couldn’t move, its like this thing whatever it was casted fear over me. It came to the top of the stairs, and stopped in front of my mothers room which was across the hall. It then made a turn and faced me.

Haunted Church Entity

My name is John and this happened when I was 10 or 11 years old, so it would be around 1978 or 1979. While I was younger I was involved with the church and this happened one Sunday morning while I was helping set up for Mass. I was the only one in the building setting up when I heard a loud bang coming from the choir loft at the other end of the building.

Curious, I stepped out from where I was and called out “Hello” and there was no answer.

So, I figured that the person just didn’t hear me and was just doing what they needed to do in getting ready. I was looking up towards the choir loft to see if I could see the person and there was no one there and figured that something had just fallen down and the noise just echoed throughout the church. I was just going through the normal rational ideas to come up with a reason for what I had just heard.

Ghoul On The Hill

I’ve always expirienced some form of supernatural phenomeon throughout my lifetime. Most aren’t anything to write home about- easily dismissed by devoted skeptics eager to attribute that knock on the door to wind. Or the full bodied visage to spoiled beef.
That said, out of all my expiriences , nothing frightened me nearly as bad as one encounter three years ago…

It was about two-thirty in the morning. My ex and I had a nasty argument, and I had decided to walk off any lingering frustration and anger.

After thirty minutes of walking around aimlessly, I decided to head home, make peace with the ol’ battle axe and get some sleep. However….as I started to walk up the steep hill that lead to the house, something caught my eye near our walk way.

The Thing in the Bush

My name is Tommy, I am 12 years old, this is a story from when I was no older than 6, yet I remember it like yesterday. It was like it was slammed into my brain, and oh lord it was a horrible experience for me.

The story starts when I was 6 (As I mentioned earlier) when I was up at my Grandparents house near Sydney, Australia. Inland from Sydney, boy, there’s a lot of bush, it’s thick and heavy, and has that dry, bare sense to it. This is a place called the Blue Mountains, known for it’s world famous The Three Sisters, its incredible how much bush there is. Its a good place for something thats undiscovered or unknown to hide. Anyways, my Father, my Mother and I (6) visited my Grandparents house, which was quite remote, it was on one of those long, mountain roads where not many people lived, it was freezing up there in the Winter, occasionally snowing, covering houses and grass.

My father and I, one night, chose to go out “Bunyip hunting”. The Bunyip, supposedly, lurks in Waterholes, called Billabongs, snatching its prey, and dragging it down to the bottom of the Billabong. We were eager both to find out if this thing existed, so, we set off, using our Car which we drove up with. We went to a lookout, which was quite quiet, we didn’t like the spot, and we drove off. Our next spot was down a desolate, old, quiet country road, there was a pristine lookout over a valley, me and my Father walked out, as we parked the Car a little distance. We stood at the lookout, then, we heard it, the thing, a thing, a monster, a thing, smashing its way through the bush, knocking back trees, branches, scrub, as it walked its way through the bush.
