“I’ve had quite a few scary incidents happen to me, but these are the top 5 scariest (some I cut and paste from my previous comments on other threads):

  1. I had just got done working out in my basement and was too lazy to go upstairs and use my normal shower so I decided to use the one in the basement. As I was shampooing my hair I heard a little girl singing outside of the bathroom door (mind you, I was home alone). I turned the water off and called out to see if anyone was down there and it stopped. I put the water back on and was rinsing off when it started up again but this time it just sounded like humming. I ran upstairs with shampoo still in my hair and never used that shower again.
  2. My brother, my ex-boyfriend and I were home alone one day and my ex and brother were playing video games in the basement. They came back upstairs and we were all sitting on the couch talking when we heard a loud bang in the basement. My ex, of course, sent me to go check out what the noise was. When I went downstairs, all the lights were on and there was a box (that had been resting securely on a table against the wall), in the middle of the floor.
  3. That same ex and I were hanging out in the basement one day watching Stand By Me when we heard running behind us. Thinking it was my dog, my ex called out her name but she wasn’t down there at all. So we were a little spooked but kept on watching the movie. A few minutes later, I see him look behind me with a terrified expression so I turn around and see a flesh colored blob dart into the laundry room. We left for the night and he never went back in my basement again.
  4. I was home alone one day while my dad was working and the rest of my family was upstate. I kept hearing running up and down my basement steps and up the stairs to my grandma’s part of the house. It was so loud that my dog eventually started to bark and I had to call my friend to come hang out with me. When my dad got home from work he went in the basement and came back up right away demanding to know why the picture of Jesus was upside down. I hadn’t done it, and when the rest of my family came back home they all said they did not do it either (my grandma and mom are really religious so they would never dream of doing something like that).
  5. My cousins and I went away for the weekend three years ago and were staying at this little hotel by the water. I slept with one of cousins in one bed and my other cousin (her sister), slept in the other bed. In the middle of the night on our last night there, I heard a loud bang as if something had fallen, followed by a little girl laughing and footsteps. The cousin who I was sharing the bed with screamed bloody murder and shook me to see if I heard it too, which I was pretending I hadn’t and my other cousin slept through the whole thing. The next morning she told us she had a weird dream that a little girl was running around the room pushing our stuff off the table.”

“One typical morning, my husband got up and went to work. When he has to get up early, our Great Dane would get on the bed and sleep with me for the rest of the morning. Great Danes are huge as everyone knows–when she would stand up on the mattress, it would shake the whole bed and it felt just like 150-pound adult standing on the mattress. 

This one morning she stood up, circled around. I guessed couldn’t get comfortable so she jumped off the bed with a huge thud as you would expect from a dog her size. I heard her walk down the hallway (we had squeaky floors). I was kind of awake but had my eyes closed. 

I wasn’t ready to get up so I rolled over only to feel her still laying there fast asleep, even snoring a little. I had no idea who or what was standing on the bed and had jumped off. I was laying there kind of freaked out and wide awake. Then I heard a loud smack on my husband’s side of the bed. Just like someone smacking the palm of their hand on a wall. Then I heard another thud at the foot of the bed followed by what sounded like little footsteps running down the hallway. It ended with a rustle of a plastic bag that was sitting in the dining room.

My dog immediately woke up and popped her head up and started growling. Then she fell back asleep… Thanks a lot, Lily. By this time I’m freaked out, but wondering, maybe there was no work that day and my husband was sent home early. I didn’t want to move, so I called his name. No response. 

I grabbed my phone and called him from under the sheets. I asked if he was home. He was still at work. He asked if everything was okay and I said that the house was creeping me out again. He said he wanted to tell me something but didn’t want to freak me out. I wanted him to tell me. 

He told me that that morning, he was sitting in the chair in the dining room, at the end of the hallway. He was bent over tying his shoes when he heard what sounded like little footsteps running down the hallway toward him, at his face since he was bent over. He said he felt a breeze hit his face and immediately after he heard what sounded like someone stepping on a plastic bag. The same one at the end of the hallway. He said he saw it move. 

He had forgotten his lunch because he said he booked it out the door right after it happened… Oh yeah… Thanks for leaving me lol. That weirded me out so bad.”

5 Reasons Why a Ghost Might Attach Itself to Y…

5 Reasons Why a Ghost Might Attach Itself to You:

There are several different types of hauntings, and understanding which one is plaguing your home should be your first step.

“In [my old] house, frequently but not all the time, when you showered you could hear what sounded like a woman and sometimes a child drowning and screaming. My husband flew out of the shower covered in soap the first time he heard it. He even ripped part of the shower curtain. It upset me too much to be scared. I just made my shower short and tried to ignore it.

The first night we moved in, we heard LOUD angry whispering in the dining room. I don’t know what was up with that stupid dining room but it seems that’s where it is all focused on. It sounded like a large group of people whispering to each other. It was like that angry, spiteful whispering. When we started hearing it I was on the phone with my mom and I had to frequently stop what I was saying to listen to what was going on. My husband and I were freaking out. My mom was on the other side of the phone just laughing at us because we were screaming lol. It was really scary because it was our first experience in the house but now I look back at it and it was kind of funny.

I play the drums and guitar and I had set up the music room in our new home. I got it all set up and left the room and I could hear tap on each of my symbol and each TomTom. Then I heard each string on the guitar play Slowly one at a time E…B…G…D…A…E… That creeped me out, but I was starting to get used to the idea of being in a weird house. I was too chicken to go in and check it out, so I screamed from the hallway, “Stop touching my shit!!” NO ONE touches my Takamine. Not even ghosts. I will haunt you if you touch my instruments lol! I never heard them being messed with again in the six years we lived there.

In the apartment before this house, we could never sleep with the door open and we felt like we could never sleep with it shut. It was weird. My husband and I both felt the same way. It was like we had to leave the door open just a little bit. 

After a couple weeks of being there we started hearing what sounded like a little kid in the hallway. I had a strong feeling that it was a little girl. It made me really sad. I realized that when we left the door slightly open it felt more comfortable. I think she felt like she couldn’t come in, but needed to know there were grown-ups there. It made me really sad. More sad then scared. I’ve never had such a strong feeling without seeing anything. The feeling I had was so really specific. It made me wonder if the abused girl lived there at one point. 

One night my husband was out of town and it was time for me to go to bed. I knew he thought I sounded crazy, but when it was time for me to go to bed, I opened the door a little bit and said that it was okay and that she could come in if she needed to and not to be scared. I got an overwhelming feeling of comfort that night. I was a little worried about staying there alone since it was the first time I was alone since we were married. After that we really didn’t have a problem. 

About a year later I was reading reviews online of that apartment, because we really didn’t like it. It was pretty trashy and the managers were totally trailer. I was snooping through reviews and a few of them said they swear that place is haunted by children. It was really weird to read that! It kind of made me feel a little less crazy.”

“When I was 10 I was at my best friend, Tyler’s house. His family lived in a very nice house on a mountain in Georgia. Tyler always told me about the scary stuff happening at his house. Like how He would see eyes, his TV would turn off while watching it, you would hear drilling sounds and metal banging sounds and doors opening up, all the classic ghost stuff. I never believed him until this one time.

We were in his hot tub together for like an hour when suddenly I feel the most overwhelming feeling to get out. At that exact moment Tyler looks at me and says, ‘we need to get out now,’ and there was fear in his voice. We jump out and dry off and go inside pretty fast. as we go in, Tyler locks the door and tries to open it to be sure, it was locked. So we start going toward the big movie area that’s near the back door to watch Napoleon Dynamite.

When out of nowhere, we’re both hit by that fear again, we smell what smelled like a rotting animal, his DVD rack falls over and all the movies fly off and at the same time and the back door flies open. Needless to say we hauled ass upstairs to his OTHER movie room and made a fort out beanbags and chairs to defend ourselves from the paranormal enemy. From that moment on I believed in ghosts. And that’s not the only thing that’s happened at Tyler’s house.

EDIT: Bonus story but possible explanation for it: Tyler’s Dad was a hunter and he had a lot of really nice hunting gear. In particular he had some walkie talkies that me and Tyler loved to play with. One day Tyler and I had the walkie talkies and he was outside across the street with one, and I was looking out the window at him from inside. We’re talking about how cool they are when suddenly what sounds like glass breaking comes in over the walkie followed by a lot of static.

I’m looking at Tyler in confusion and he’s looking back at me from across the street when over the walkie we hear in the deepest and scariest voice I can remember, ‘how’s it going, scubafire4?’ (he said my real name) followed by another sound of glass breaking then it was gone. I always thought it was somebody who found the super random walkie channel me and my friend were on, and had been listening for a while but I don’t remember ever saying my name over it. So I don’t use walkie talkies much because of that.”

[Continued in a later comment]

“Another time Tyler, his older sister, his other friend and I were in the hot tub when we heard muffled drilling start coming from his house. His friend and I are confused as hell as to what it is so we look at Tyler and his sister but they’ve gone rigid and pale and have pure fear in their eyes.

I asked what the sound was and Tyler said ‘the ghost stole our drill and he sometimes uses it to scare us. We need to wait outside ‘til my parents get home.’ Now it’s almost 8 at night in late fall. I don’t want to wait outside in a hot tub for another 2 hours, I’m a cranky 10-year-old who doesn’t want to be bossed around by a ghost!

I get out and dry off. I walk up to the door and Tyler says, ‘don’t do it, you’re gonna make him mad!’ Well, I did it anyway. I open the door and go inside. About 5 feet left of the door is one of those little toy kitchen sets and on top of it is a box with about 10 to 20 plastic forks and spoons n’ shit in it. I go in a few more feet and the drilling stops and the air goes cold.

The box of plastic forks and spoons FLIES at me and they go everywhere the drilling starts again and it was louder and faster and it sounds like it’s right next to my ears, it was deafening (The doctor said I actually have 15% hearing loss in my left ear after this event). Everyone in the hot tub sees this happen through the window wall and they start screaming. I run back outside and the door slams behind me and locks on its own. The drilling stops and Tyler just says, ‘told you.’

2 hours later, his parents get home and see us outside still and ask ‘did the ghost lock you out?’ I shit you not this was a common thing in their house.

And the last thing that happened at Tyler’s house was that when I slept over there, I ALWAYS had a nightmare of that I would see a floating orb in the hallway. It would start moving and I would follow it into his basement and the Black knight ghost from Scooby Doo 2 would fly over and attack me. One day after sleeping over he decides to show me his dad’s workshop on the side of the house. It was raining outside so the best way to get there was the other door that went through the basement. So he takes me into the basement for the first time and sitting in the corner was a suit of armor. I noped the fuck out and told him to get an umbrella because there’s no way in hell I’m going into the basement. Tyler may have had a cool house, but fuck was it scary.”

“I grew up in a house that was above my family’s funeral home so often we had to be quiet as we played so as to not disturb the grieving families. This one time my cousins and I were playing some silly game I can’t remember any more. Suddenly, we hear a bunch of people crying. It didn’t bother us at first since it was kind of expected at a funeral home. Except there was no one downstairs, no service, no families. The funeral home was empty except for the people who worked there. And the crying got louder and louder. Female voices crying with such despair even now as I’m writing this I’m getting chills.

My cousin went to check the north corner of the room, and said it seems the sound came from there. My other cousin went to check the west corner, said it came from there. I went to check the south corner, and to me it seemed the crying sounded louder from there. It seemed wherever we went to check, the crying sounded louder on the side we were on. After a while we decided to nope right outta there and went to play in the park instead. Never found out what the hell it was we heard that day.

[Continued in a later comment]

“This one time we were trying to roast marshmallows on the roof of the house (it being the ceiling of the main chapel) when we heard a fluttering sound which we thought was just a dragonfly. But the sound grew louder and I thought it seemed like the wings making that sound were way bigger and stronger. My cousins and I just kept talking and eating until one of them pointed off to one side and said ‘what’s that?’ It was a smallish humanoid figure, at the time I thought it kinda looked like Cell from Dragon Ball because it was green and white and had these black wing-like things. It remained still for a few seconds and then flew away.

Another time I was playing hide and seek with my sister. As I was looking for her I heard knocking coming from one of the caskets. The sound was purposeful, like when you’re in a hurry and want someone to open the door. I knew it was empty because it was in the display room where they kept the caskets that were not being sold, so I went and knocked on the outside, twice. Whatever was inside knocked back two times as well. I knocked three more times and was waiting for an answer when my sister came out of nowhere and said, ‘don’t do that, he doesn’t like it.’”

Bobby Mackeys Music World: AKA The Most Haunt…

Bobby Mackeys Music World:
AKA The Most Haunted Nightclub in America

Located in Kentucky is a greasy gritty dive bar known as
Bobby Mackeys Music World. While guests can come and enjoy riding a mechanical
bull or busting a move on the line dancing floor, they may also experience
something paranormal.

The building was originally used as a slaughterhouse in the
1850s. During this time the owners would take any leftover body parts and
simply dump them into the well in the basement, resulting in a grisly and
reeking pile of remains. Eventually the slaughterhouse closed in the 1890s and
a local Satanic cult moved in. The Satanic cult was thought to have used the
well as a site for rituals. As a result the well has become what many believe
to be a portal to Hell. It is still thought to be a portal to Hell today.

In the 1896 a young
woman named Pearl Bryan met a grisly fate on the property. Pearl Bryan was the
daughter of a wealthy local farmer who fell in love with a man named Scott
Jackson. Jackson was a dental student who was alleged to be a member of the
Satanic cult that resided in the closed down slaughterhouse. After Pearl became
pregnant, Jackson and his friend, fellow dental student Alonzo Walling, decided
to perform their own abortion. Pearl was heavily sedated on cocaine, and the procedure
went on for hours before the two students realized that they had completely messed
up the job. Upon realizing their mistake, they murdered Pearl and chopped off
her head so that police could not recognize her. Her body was dumped in a field
on the property, and her head was supposedly used in a Satanic ritual. Now
visitors to the premises can sometimes spot the headless figure of Pearl roaming
about.

Eventually the building was restored in the 1920s and became
a popular speakeasy for mobsters. In the 1950’s the building became another popular
nightclub named the Latin Quarter. During this time there was a dancer known as
Johanna. Johanna was one of the most popular dancers until she became pregnant with
local singer, Robert Randall’s, child. When Johanna’s father found out about
the baby, he had some of his shadier connections kill Randall. Johanna was
distraught and hung herself in a dressing room. Johanna is now one of the most
active ghosts on site. Visitors can spot her apparition hanging around her
dressing room area. Others have felt her touching them or have heard a
disembodied voice in the area.

Other incidents that happen on at the bar include furniture
moving on its own, banging, screaming, and Jukeboxes turning on and off by itself.
