Do you know any real life spooky stories?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14659points) October 31st, 2013

It is Halloween, I am a little drunk, and feeling jaded about the supernatural.

Does anyone have an anecdote that would creep people out to share?

Watch this guy and his musical buddies, and tell me you’re not creeped out. Stay until the end.

Okay, I was sitting at my desk in my office. I face to the East. One day I saw something look into my office from the left side of the door, fairly humanoid but with no face. I jumped up and went to the door and no one was there. The door to my left is the only exit and it never opened. I have no idea what the hell that was.

@gailcalled Okay, that is a a little out of the range of normal experience when they took the chair away.

You come home from hard day of work at Soviet tractor factory.
Enter lounge and drink vodka. Cat sit on top of kitchen table, stare at you. “Stupid cat” you say, “You look just like Stalin’s fat ugly wife!”.

Early next morning, KGB kick-down front door and take you to Siberian gulag for outrageous slur against Comrade Stalin’s beautiful wife.

In glorious Soviet motherland, even a cat can be trained to report its owner for spreading discontent and telling lies about senior party members.

Cat receive Order Of Lenin medal and senior position in KGB; you receive 30 year hard labour sentence at Soviet re-education camp.

Life is just and fair under our beloved leader Stalin…

Young girl was having sleepover with several of her teenage friends. Shortly before midnight she is telling her guests that there was grave in edge of the woods behind her house and anyone going there on full moon and standing too close to grave would be pulled into the grave by bony hand of old man buried there. One fifteen year old girl scoffed at story because she was good Soviet girl and unafraid of superstitious nonsense. After much teasing she accepted challenge of going alone to grave. As proof she had actually gone she was to stick large sickle into top of grave for inspection by others next morning. The girl left and did not return. Others became frightened like American children – afraid to wake adults in house because they feared beating and did not have proper respect for elder – fearful they were in serious trouble. Next morning they all huddled together and nervously went grave. At grave, they are arrested and sent to re-education for being cowards and fifteen year old girl is awarded medal for reporting her friends.

Yes, the night at my old, secluded house on 5 acres when I went out to put my geese to bed in their barn and heard a loud shuffling and huffing and puffing of something HUGE lurking in the gravel driveway. I am pretty sure it was a black bear. Scared the crap out of me and I had visions of this giant paw coming through the cat door as I sat in my livjng room the rest of the night. haha

When I was a little girl and we moved into a new house, we had a priest come bless it. When we went into one room, he started shaking and stopped as soon as well left the room. Supposedly the previous owner collapsed in that room or in the garage and died on the way to the hospital.

My mom freaked out one time because she felt a hand touch her shoulder in the basement. I try not to believe in all that stuff but it’s still freaky.

My aunt killed herself a few years back.
A neighbor and friend of hers was talking to her husband, when she suddenly felt something bumping her. She looked around, and saw nothing, and commented about it to her husband.
When my Aunt was found, they estimated her time of death at about the same time as the neighbor and friend felt the bump.

I have two of many stories I could share. The first story involves a house I shared with 3 other people in the Colorado mountains near Evergreen where I worked at the time. We had neighbors through the trees, but never saw them.
All was well until strange things began to happen in and around the house.

First we began hearing strange noises in the walls, an uneasy energy began to waft through the house. We would walk outside in the mornings to find small animals dead and propped standing up around the front of the house. That was beyond creepy and sad.

We began to believe that the neighbors through the trees were into some negative ritualistic work. Nobody stayed in the house we had rented for long, but why?

One night one of my roommates had a boyfriend who went crazy. He became violent, and began running around naked and screaming until the cops came and picked him up.

People began to feel weird, bad, uncomfortable. Nobody wanted to be there alone.

The animals kept appearing in our yard, dead and propped up to standing position.

One night, it happened that I was home alone. I thought, “This is crazy. I’m not going to let this crap intimidate ME!”

I was sitting in the living room reading. I started hearing very strange noises all through the house clicks, bangs, scratches, thumps. I then heard weird breathing and then…....a loud scratching noise inside the living room wall went all the way from the ceiling to the floor, like nails on a chalkboard. It was horrible. It was loud. It was unmistakeable.

Well….I grabbed my purse and car keys and high tailed it out of that house so fast I was a blur. I drove out of the driveway like a bat out of hades, and went to my boyfriend’s house.

I called a friend of mine who was a very powerful psychic. She said, “Honey move out of that house now and don’t go back there alone. There is something really dark being directed at that house and there are some bad things in there”....I never went back alone, moved out the next day, and never went back.

Then another time, I was driving my car which was a stick shift at the time. All of a sudden, something took control of my car. All of the pedals were going up and down on their own, the steering wheel was trying to turn into oncoming traffic, I was fighting for control of my car! Finally, whatever it was stopped and I regained control. Something wanted to hurt me. Luckily, it didn’t succeed.

I have had many strange experiences like that. But, I always write very long answers and this is too long as it is.

@Skylight Well..I don’t think I’ll be inviting you over anytime soon. Life is hard enough without being targeted by demons. Have you considered exorcism for your bad juju? lol

Skylight's avatar

@Coloma Lol. This was years & years ago, ancient history. I don’t allow those kinds of energies around me anymore. You can learn how to keep them away. I did. Now, everything is just peachy. So feel free to invite me to dinner anytime! :)

Coloma's avatar

@Skylight That’s good to know, now…can you send deodorizing energy to my cats freshly used litter box? The cat crap demons are floating around me. haha ;-p

Valerie111's avatar

@Skylight That is seriously scary! It’s hard to believe in the supernatural until it happens to you but your making me a believer just by reading your post. I remember you from Askville and I 100% believe your story. You seem very brave. :)

@Adirondackwannabe did you tell anyone else about it? Could it have been a window cleaner’s head(from the back)? You may have been tired or thinking hazily that moment and mistaken it for something else.

There was a man named Andrew Wakefield who made a story up about how vaccines got autism and conned a reputable journal in publishing it. Although it was found out as a fraud, and the paper was withdrawn, people believed it and stopped vaccinating their kids. Then children started dying.

Oh, no wait. That’s real.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ZEPHYRA I’ve told a lot of people about it, and drawn what I saw for a bunch of people. It just creeps them out. I have no idea what it was. My curtains are usually closed so it wasn’t something from the window and it was mid afternoon, so I wasn’t tired. I was talking with another jelly when it happened and we talked about it after. I’ve thought of a light affect, but I doubt that was it. I don’t have a clue what it was.

@Skylight You are my new favourite person here!!! Do you know if that house still stands? I wonder if it has haunted others.

Coloma's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Oh sure, it was probably one of those afternoons you were all gussied up in your strapless sundress and tippin’ back a few. Delusions of a man in a sundress. lol
