When I was a kid I became terrified of going into the basement after I saw a dark figure at the back that appeared to move across my field of view. The staircase to the basement didn't have a door and my bedroom was right around the corner.
I always used to refer to it as "the black thing", and I'm pretty sure I creeped out my brother and my parents by always warning them about the black thing in the basement.

After looking at old photos of the house and basement, I'm 100% positive that "the black thing" was just the old fake Christmas tree wrapped in trash bags that stood in the exact spot as the black thing did in my memory, and thinking more I realized I had ran immediately which is probably how I remember it "moving".

This taught me that when you mix together the ignorance, innocence, and sincerity of children, you're guaranteed to hear some creepy **** at some point.

Creepy story time!
So a couple of months ago I went to a family gathering for Easter dinner, and we were all just reminiscing and discussing the past when we all (Me, my brother and my parents) lived together in a 2-story apartment. It was mostly just my brother who is 7 years older than me and my mum recalling how chaotic I use to be as a child (I'm 18 years old now) because I did a lot of sleepwalking. We were all laughing and teasing each other, and I, being curious of the idea of how I was as a toddler, asked my brother if I ever did something unusual or peculiar as a child that he remembers. He has a cheeky grin on his face while rewinding the past for a minute until his jaw drops.

Apparently, when I was five years old, we were sitting around the kitchen table eating cereal one morning when I ask him about some strange sounds I heard coming from the stairs. Teasing me, he jokingly says that the man who lived here before us got killed by a burglar in his bedroom and was dragged downstairs, so he walks up and down the stairs to guard his home at night.
A couple of days later he woke up in the middle of the night to some noise coming from downstairs, thinking it was our parents talking, he walks out of his room to find me sitting on the stairs talking to my own shadow on the wall. He then picks me up and puts me to bed, thinking that I had been sleepwalking. As he's carrying me I was saying "Du må ikke larme. Vær stille" = Danish for "Don't make a sound"
Next day we're sitting at the kitchen table eating cereal and he asks me if I recall anything from last night, to which I respond,
"The Stair man called my name from my bedroom so I went to speak with him but he didn't want me to leave"

I don't know if I was trolling my brother or I just had a very vivid imagination, but the thought of me actually communicating with a spirit scares me.

yeah that sounds pretty freaky as all hell. I think the one weird story from when I was a kid.

what happened was I was at this camp site with my mother, brother and my mum co-worker(the co-worker invited us to come along with her to the campsite) and when we were there I heard of a rumor of some evil dogs, and I thought it was bullocks so I started wandering to see if it was fake or not.

when I was wandering I found what I thought was a statue of a dog and turned my back on it after hitting it with a stick, I heard a noise when I turned to see the statue start to open its eyes and slowly start to stand up, which scared the crap out of me so I ran for my life, after getting back to the camper my family thought I was making stuff up and as it was getting late told me to go to bed. later in the night when everyone else was asleep I woke up for some reason, and I felt like I had to look out of the window and I saw the same dog thing just standing there, staring at me and after a few minutes it slowly walked away into the forest.

When i was younger and just able to talk my mum and dad said I used to tell them stories of WW1 and 2.


I used to say how I had climbed over the way and charged at the germans and watched my friends die in world war 1, i think i said i was killed by a sniper as well.


Then i said i also was in WW2 and i stormed the beaches, i was killed in the 3rd wave.



I still remember these ideas very briefly, cant really piece the images together but i can see the trenches and storming over the wall, brown dirt and a yellow sky like mustard gas. Cant remember the WW2 bit, just keep seeing images from saving private ryan. I dont tell my parents i remember it, I lie and say i have no idea what they are talking about.



Believe me or not i dont care, this post just triggered me remembering i said it to my parents.

When my sister was about 2 or 3 she had an imaginary friend named Erin. She played with him all the time and said they would get married when they grew up. One time my mom asked her to get something from outside but she replied" Erin says i cant go outside, i can get hurt." My mom just forgot about it but then started questioning my little sister about Erin, where he lives and what not. She said he lives "over there" pointing across the street, "in the neighbors house?" "No mommy, over there". My mom asked the next door neighbor if anything had happened across the street a murder or anything "No not this street, but the next street over a little boy was run over on the street" pointing in the same direction as my sister. My mom went to get the house spiritually cleaned and that same night my sister said " Mommy i'm not going to marry Erin anymore. He had to go".

My mom says that when I was 3, we were at the beach and I was building a sand castle, and my brother came up to where we were sitting with a bucket and said "mom look i got a fish" and he reached into the bucket to get it out and, with my back turned to them, I pointed a finger at my brothers face and said "Don't touch that ****** , if it stings you you'll die." My mom had never heard me curse before that. It turned out to be a scorpion fish, which could've hurt my brother pretty badly.

I remember being 4 or 5 and constantly seeing and feeling one of the dogs we had that had passed watching me while I slept, or laying at the end of my bed.

Other than that though, the only really creepy/weird thing that's ever happened to me is living in my grandparents house (after both had passed) I would experience what I guess would be described as "sleep paralysis". I'm fully awake, yet I can't move. For some reason every time it happens I'm stricken with such fear and anxiety, and it feels like I'm having a panic attack. I can't shake the feeling that something is hovering over me, and watching me yet I can't turn to see what it is. I remember trying to call out numerous times for my mother who was in the next room while it was happening and I couldn't make a sound. It only ever happened to me in that house to, up until about 2 weeks ago it happened again at my new house. If I had to guess I'd say it's happened about 15 times or so now since the time I was 17. I'm 23 now.

For some reason too whenever it happens I always feel like it's gnomes. v.v I'm not even afraid of gnomes. Does this happen to anyone else though? Would love to hear others experiences.
User avatar #452 to #368 - GnRNoD (04/30/2013) [-]
It has happen to me several times, the first time it happend we were renting a house (remodeling ours) were a family we knew used to live, the older son had killed himself (jumped infront of a train naked) he was a pretty nice guy, and a not so close friend of my brother he youngest is my age and was a friend of mine.
I woke up face down on bed and i feel this hoovering thing behind me, all i can feel about it is that it wants to harm me somehow i try moving ot no avail... I try calling my mom but words can't leave my mouth i think i'll call my brother (he's room was closer than my mom's) again i can't, my brother's name is the same as the guy who killed himself and my name is the same as his younger brother (we're both Nicolas and my brother is Matias, just a coincidence) but when i feel a small "mati" coming out of my mouth a kid appears infront of me and holds my hands in his. And all i can think of is "you're with them, you just want to harm me" so i try to spit him(don't ask me why?) i woke up in tears and i did not dare go back to sleep that night.
I have plenty more stories, now i fight the feeling kinda like stand up to it, i still can't move but i stay in that state for as long as i can, until i get bored.
It's a chemical reaction in the brain, you release a hormone that puts you in an alert state, and as you're sleeping the hormone that should calm you down is not released you get in such an alert state that you are concious, but your body is asleep the figure is just an unconcious representation of the paranoia you feel.
in the past they used to think it was demons, succubus for men and incubbus for woman trying to get impregnated or impregnate with a demon seed.

Also most times i feel as is something is pulling me up from my uncles, i don't feel anything touching me i just feel my legs going up as if someone was pulling me up from my uncles.
The thing i sense (never seen it) is a shadow figure kinda like the grim reaper but it doesn't have a face or anything.
One time it tried to trick me, i worked at a mining camp, we lived in a camp-site and i woke up and thought damn it not again... and my roomate said "what's up?" and i told him, i think i'm having a sleep paralisis again, you can hear me?... He said yeah man, you're just tripping, there's nothing going on, and i tell him, well i feel as if there was. and (he bit on his teeth while he slept) while he's telling me again "nah men you're just tripping, go back to sleep" i hear his teeth grinding and i ask "who the **** are you?" and all i hear is a fainting laughter.
User avatar #475 to #462 - jonebonez (04/30/2013) [-]
Lol, it's all good. By the second "uncles" I had caught on to what you meant. Sometimes I think that while we're like that it's almost as if where in a heightened state of awareness almost, and are able to see things we normally wouldn't. Kind of like when people tell me stories about when they were on acid, or hallucinogenics like that. It makes me wonder if they were just seeing something on a different dimension maybe that our eyes and brain couldn't normally process. Almost like how younger kids are more prone to seeing the dead and things like that. What if the monsters they're afraid of are actually real? >.>
User avatar #479 to #475 - GnRNoD (04/30/2013) [-]
Well i take acid now and then, and it's nothing like that, you see things a little different, but mainly lights and the things that are moving in your peripheral vision. You notice things more while on acid, but it's nothing like sleep paralisis.

Check it out, when i read it i couldn't believe it happend to so many other people, when i told people about this they said i was probably tripping...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis
User avatar #480 to #479 - jonebonez (04/30/2013) [-]
Yeah I was looking at the wiki page earlier. I found it interesting that that's kind of what the term "nightmare" is derived from.
User avatar #499 to #480 - GnRNoD (04/30/2013) [-]
Also, i take extacy sometimes, and when i get back home after a night out, i usually sleep like 2hs only and when i wake up (sometimes) i close my eyes and see people moving around i can't see their faces, they come near me and as soon as i'm about to see their faces they walk away add this to voices sometimes (like repetitions of what you heard while high) but you can't quite make out what they are saying, really trippy some people doesn't like it, i enjoy it, tho it's hard to come down stairs and be with the family while being like that hahaha.
But again nothing compared to that feeling of "IT want's to hurt me" coming from the sleep paralisis, it is like a nightmare, but at least to me, my mind is allways aware while it's happening like i can make logical assumptions as if awke, wich i believe is what mekes it all even more scary. But as i said before, i tried controlling it to no avail, i can cope with the fear, but the fear is still there, i tried creating a lucid dream out of it, and started imagining things (Considering the half&half state of the mind i thought it might work) it kinda did, but the fear was so constant that i couldn't concentrate on my "dream".
it hasn't happen in a while tho maybe like 3 months ago or something and it hadn't happen in like 2 months before that, but during a period it happend like twice a week...
That time it spoke to me i swear i thought it was trying to trick me into falling sleep for some reason.
Also i learned how to "wake up" you have to concentrate in waking up, like a very big effort, and you have to avoid thinking it's not going to work because it wont i had a few "inceptions" but mostly because i was curious and scared and i wanted to wake up but i wanted to learn more so i would wake up to the same situation.

I can't imagine experiencing something like that. I mean, just the shear terror I feel even when I know I'm alone is intense. If that fear actually manifested into something I would honestly probably die of a heart attack. It's been on my mind a lot lately and I've been worried about it mostly for the fact that I'm 6 months pregnant right now. I can't imagine the stress from that is good for the baby. I just hop anymore hold off at least until I deliver. .-.

In our country, sleep paralysis is linked to a well-known superstition. They say some heavy, paranormal being lies on top of you, making it difficult for you to move. If you can't find a way to get your body working again, it may as well be fatal. You could actually die from sleep paralysis. There are even some cases of deaths with it being the cause, although it's portrayed more of the being's doing, not the sleep paralysis. I don't know if you actually buy all this "paranormal being" stuff, but he gets all the blame for sleep paralysis incidents.

There was a post here on FJ (and some parts of the internet) back in the day about sleep paralysis and how to get into it voluntarily. Knowing that I could kiss this world goodbye as a risk, I never tried it and never will.

Personally, I don't have any experience with sleep paralysis, and I hope I never will.
User avatar #438 to #433 - jonebonez (04/30/2013) [-]
Yeah I was looking in to a lot of stuff like that. I feel like those are more so just hallucinations, then again the fact that kind of the same thing shows up in a lot of peoples reports about it is pretty strange. I never had an experience with an entity or being myself.
User avatar #458 to #438 - raberintodesu (04/30/2013) [-]
I don't have any kind of paranormal experience either. For your sake, I hope your paralysis incidents stop for good.

This thread is starting to get to me. I'm starting to feel jumpy.
User avatar #464 to #458 - jonebonez (04/30/2013) [-]
Haha yeah I know what you mean. I was about to go lay down for a small nap. I honestly don't really mind them though. At least after the fact. Usually I'll fall asleep before I can regain control of my body and move. So it sometimes just feels like a dream, or I forget it even happened until later in the day. It's just during the event, be it about 1 - 5 minutes is hell.

This is creepy on a different end.
In the fourth grade, my mom was visiting her friend so she brought me along. Her friend has a son who was 5 at the time. So my mom and her friend had us play for a while. Well he was a little weird. One time, he was just looking at me and he said "I wish you were a girl so I could touch your boobs".

long as we are talking about scary **** that has to do with kids though, ill tell a story of something i REMEMBER from being a kid. excuse my poor grammar, i taught myself how to read and spell.

when i was very little i lived in a house that was called a "mother in law home" it was built in the back yard of my grandmothers actual home, it was intended for an elderly person, while the actual husband and wife lived in the BIG home. well, for whatever reason me, my mom and dad lived in the small home while my asshole grandmother lived in the big house

i can remember all sorts of stuff back from when i was very very small for some reason, yet my short term memory isnt very good. go figure, but either way here is the creepy ****

i used to see a shadowy man walking around in our kitchen ALL the time. my parents would tell me about how id stare off into the kitchen, like i was in a daze, to which i told them about the shadow man i saw, well a few months later after i told them our house burnt down

in the ******* rubble of the house my dad with his OWN EYES seen the shadow man walking around in the rubble of the totally burnt down house in broad daylight. his uncle was standing there at the time and he asked him "do you see that?" to which his uncle said "im leaving, and im never coming back after today" and he never did either. it scared him that much.

i swear on my ******* life everything ive written here is the honest truth, i can remember the incredibly creepy look of that moving shadow like it was yesterday. the night we almost died in the house fire it walked up to me and touched me on my forehead, and i passed out.. next thing i know im being dragged out of the house by my feet...

i can go into more depth about the "situation" of what happened, but that is the quickest version ive wrote about what happened to me.. i even feel i know the name of the creepy shadow man, but i rather not say it in public. inbox me if you want to know however..

My 5 year old nephew gets out of bed in the middle of the night and sits at the top of the stairs laughing and talking, and when I ask him who he's talking to, he usually says that his friend called Captain who is old talks to him. He stopped this for a few months, and then one night a few weeks ago, my 3 year old nephew started shouting at the 5 year old in the middle of the night, asking him to make Captain shut up because he couldn't sleep.
I don't like going in their room anymore.

My daughter told me some weird **** when she wasaround 3-4 years old. She told me very seriously about her other grandparents, who lived so far away that you had to both fly and go by train to get there. Her other grandfather had no hair, and no milk in the refrigerator. Their names were Gaddil and Hogge and to be fair that does sound a lot like scandinavian / old norse [thrall] names from 1000-1500 years ago. Or maybe even Saami.I'll write that off as vivid imagination or I would freak myself out big time.

**** , I started googling. Gáddjá is an old traditional saami name and so is Duoŋgi. It doesn't look like it but they sound about right. Maybe I should tell her Adnala dáv rejnav or Mån ähtjáv duv just to see if she reacts.

I'm not one to write down personal experiences, especially those that I consider embarrassing. But given the post and comments are highly related, here goes:

>Be me, age 4-6.
>Be asleep in room upstairs
>Bed faces doorway
>Wake up feeling 'uneasy'. Not sure why.
>Hall light is on.
>Notice something in doorway.
>Realize there is something standing there.
>Groggy eye'd, but can tell that it's a person.
>Couldn't see any characteristics of the person. Hall light was on directly behind 'it'. But I can tell by the outline that it looks human.
>I can't see it's face, but I know it's staring at me. Staring into me.
>Try to move. Can't.
>Try to yell, Can't.
>Stay locked onto this figure.

I still to this day don't know what it was. But I know it was there. I know I saw it. And worse yet...I know it saw me.

My heart is racing just thinking about it. I saw it a second time. But that's enough for this comment.

I appreciate your response. You may have just solved something that has haunted me for a long time. These "Shadow people" are thought to be seen during 'Sleep Paralysis', which would explain my inability to move or talk.

When I was a wee lass, bout the age o' 8, when playing outside with me brothers, I would occasionally hear voices in the nearby wood saying "Samanthy come and play."

My name is Samantha but my bros. called me Samanthy, I thought it were them playin a fool o' me, but when I say to them bout it, they would look at the trees kinda scared like.

Also, me mum told me bout one time, we were watchin a movie on the telly, I was three at the time, and I turned to her an said, "they are comin t' get you mummy" in a serious tone, and shortly afterwards there was a sound of walking outside the window, when me mum looked over at it, she screamed at the deer that were just standing there. Me brother said that I caused her at least six grey hairs that night.

It's been a year since I've moved in a renovated apartment in the city centre to live with with my fiance. When he's off to work, I sit to work on my PC, my cat sits next to me.
Then after a half an hour or so when I'm concentrated, I catch cats behaviour by peripheral vision, that he's tense and stares trough the hallway that leads to our living room. When I too look in the direction he's looking, and see nothing, I turn my head to continue working. In that moment, I see it too, a tall dark shadowy man, passing from one side of the corridor to other. Then I get the creeps, and can't concentrate anymore. Since we arrived here, the whole place seemed off somehow. And especially one room on the far end of the living room, it is constantly cold, so we use it only as a storage room, and that is also where the cat sleeps.

Some weird things happened to me too.I can remember when I was around three or four. I was living with my Mother and Stepfather.
we lived in this dirty little apartment. My Step Father was a heavy set man, who loved to go to yard sales. We would always leave really early in the morning. But there was this one time... We stopped by a decrepit building. It was two stories, falling apart at the foundations. It was an old school house that was set to be demolished. My Mother and Stepfather were looking around, and I managed to sneak away, and go upstairs. I remember seeing all these kids... Lots of them. I can't really remember solid details, just that they were really nice and they wanted to play. My mom comes looking for me and sees me running around an empty room laughing and talking. Of course, she questioned me as to who I was speaking to. I looked up at her, and said. "Mommy, don't you see all the other kids? They see you." My mom noped the **** out and Left my step dad soon after.
