It’s time to get scared, my friends!
Because we’re about to dive into some weird, creepy, and very personal stories from people who had run-ins with the supernatural.
With Halloween fast approaching, we think you’re really going to enjoy these unsettling tales.
AskReddit users went on the record and talked about their experiences with the supernatural.
1. A dark and stormy night.
“January 1 2003 – a stretch of road between 2 coastal towns in Australia
It was a dark and stormy night…..no, really…it was
Driving along with my partner, I noticed a car coming up behind us, travelling fast. It was a single lane road so we couldn’t move over
I said to my partner “This guy is in a hurry, let him overtake you” My partner agreed and he moved left as soon as there was an overtaking lane
The car pulled up beside us and then disappeared. There was nowhere it could have gone
We sat in silence for a few minutes and I said “Did you see that?” He said “Yep”.”
“One night, I must have been about 5 or 6, I woke up in the middle of the night and felt uneasy. I was never a good sleeper and would call for my mom if I felt sick, so that’s what I did.
I called for her and then noticed someone in the corner, in a white night gown and holding what looked like a mug. I genuinely thought it was my mother and asked, “mom, what are you doing in the corner?”
The figure did not move. I asked it again and when I had no response, I just went straight back to bed. You’d think such a thing would scare a little kid, but I felt a sense of peace about it all.
Then years later, I must have been about 19 years old, I saw a psychic (I know, I know, cold readers are a thing). I remembered that night, but thought it was just sleepy imaginative kid brain, until this psychic woman repeated the events of the night back to me: you woke up in the middle of the night, someone dressed in white was in your room in the corner, you thought it was your mother and tried to speak to it, then peacefully went back to sleep.
She then said, it was your grandmother, the one who you are named after (yup) and she was there to let you know she’s looking after you.”
3. The dream.
“I had a dream my dog had gone to a distant corner of our heavily wooded back yard and dug a hole to get out, which was odd because he wasn’t a digger.
He was stuck on the other side of the chain link fence because the hole was at a steep angle and he couldn’t squeeze back through. I lifted the fence up enough for him to get back through.
The next day I got home and the yard was eerily quiet. He’d usually run up to greet me. I thought of the dream and walked straight to the corner where I found him waiting on the other side of the fence and let him in.”
4. The little friend.
“I used to do pest control. Went to a customer’s business for the first time.
As I walked in the office I noticed some pictures that were supposed to be hanging on the wall were on the ground and then saw some papers which looked like they had been thrown and scattered off a desk. I picked everything up so I could apply treatment to the floor Boards and surrounding rooms.
I then went to treat The only restroom in the office, I simply knocked on the door as a courtesy as I always do before entering any restroom, there was no reply for nobody was in there so I went and applied treatment to the restroom and I closed the door behind me.
As I walked away from the door I KNOW I HEARD somebody grab the door handle, twist it open and open the door. I turned around and looked to see nobody behind me but a door swinging open. The hair on my neck instantly stood up and I put two in two together.
I grabbed my sh*t and ran down stairs. The receptionist saw me and started laughing. She asked me if I had met “Their little friend upstairs”.”
5. From beyond.
“My best friends dad, who was a second father to me, came to me in a dream and told me to tell my best friend that he loved her and that he was sorry.
I woke up to my cell phone ringing to find it was my best friend absolutely hysterical telling me that he finally passed away from sclerosis.
I sobbed all day. He was a drunk our whole lives but it still hurt.”
6. Bell bottom ghost.
“When I was about 9 years old, 1995, in the middle of a bright summer day, I went to the refrigerator to get a popsicle.
Suddenly a teenage-looking guy, with long brown hair, wearing a beige turtleneck and red plaid bell-bottoms, turned around the corner into the hallway to my left, then vanished from toe to head as I looked at him.
Told no one about it for years, until after my mother mentioned meeting the (now grown) kids who lived in the house before us, who asked her if she’d seen “the bell-bottom ghost”.”
“My remote once jumped off the TV by itself (the old school box type of television) when I was watching with my girlfriend.
Didn’t fall or slide off; we actually saw it take a leap as if somebody threw it.
We both just sat there being really confused before even questioning it out loud.”
8. Don’t smoke.
“When I was 16, an uncle (dad’s brother) passed unexpectedly. Weeks later, I had a dream about him and he told me to quit smoking cigarettes. (It was way more involved but it’s been 20+ years so I don’t remember the rest.)
A month or so later, I mentioned the dream to my parents and my dad started crying, got up and walked away. Apparently he’d dreamed of talking to his brother too, and he’d told my dad that he (uncle) needed to talk to me.”
9. Four long years.
“4 years ago my fiancé died.
He and his parents were American but we were living in another country so, in less than a week we had to clean the house. We took with us some things in the plane but everything else was shipped.
When I get to the US I realized I can’t find some earrings he gave to me in our first anniversary. I called my mum back home to check if I had left them somewhere but had no luck. I was absolutely devastated.
Few months go by and one of his aunts had a dream with him and apparently he had said “tell fingerhut89 I have them”. So, the aunt had no idea what was this about but she told me and at the time I didn’t really get it.
Few more months and we finally receive the cargo with all our stuff.
I start unpacking and found this little box where he used to put things like coins, keys and…my earrings.
I miss him so much. I used to leave my earrings everywhere and he was always telling me “can you please put them in one place? You are going to lose them”.”
10. Still here.
“I saw my deceased ex-husband in my kitchen.
I was watching TV and kept hearing a sound, like someone was jiggling their change around. And it was loud, as if it were in the room with me.
I start to look around the room and when I got to the kitchen, I saw him standing there. He was looking around and jiggling change in one hand, while flipping a quarter in between his fingers with the other hand. Something he did a lot when he was alive.
He turned his head and saw me frozen, staring at him. The expression on his face was knew I would never forget. His eyes got HUGE and he kind of tilted his head forward, with the expression like, “You can SEE me??!!”
I don’t how long we stared at each for, but I turned away when I started to hear my cat ripping up the f*cking carpet again in the other room. When I turned back to my ex, he was gone.
It’s worth noting that he had only been dead for a couple months too. Some Romanian women I worked with told me that the dead stick around for three months before crossing over.
I don’t know about all that, but I know without a shadow of a doubt, what I saw that day.”
11. Creepy daycare center.
“I used to work in a daycare centre that was converted from an old house. I never saw anything weird there, but the other staff members told me some stories.
One lady said that she and another lady were closing up after all the kids had gone home and they could hear tables being dragged around downstairs.
Another lady said she saw a child running up the stairs (there was a gate on either side of the stairs), so she chased the child up the stairs and when she got to the top no one was there and the gate was closed.
Another lady said one morning one of the little girls was going to the bathroom, and was just staring into the corner like something scary was there. The lady couldn’t see anything. After that this kid would not go to the bathroom without an adult present.
The freakiest one was when they were serving afternoon tea and a kid pointed to the kitchen window and said “Why don’t you give some food to that lady?” There was no one in the kitchen.
We were all discussing the kid with the bathroom issue and one lady said “I guess we just tell her parents she’s developed a sudden fear of going to the bathroom. We can’t really say she saw a ghost in there one morning”.”
12. Do you know Jim?
“About a year ago my coworker and I went to get coffee at a new coffee shop that opened up by our work. I was dealing with a lot of anxiety over my future. Anyway, while in line there was a woman in front of me.
She was giving her order when she stopped mid-sentence and looks behind her to see me. She turns back around gives the barista her order. After I give my order she comes up to me and “Hey, I know this is going to sound weird, but do you know a man named Jim?”
Her words took me off guard because Jim was my grandpa. He died of cancer. He didn’t live in the same state as I did so I doubt he and this woman would have ever met him. I told her yes, he was my grandpa.
And she told me that he wanted me to know that I needed to stop worrying because everything was going to be ok. Cue me crying in the middle of the coffee store in front of my bewildered coworker and a couple of strangers.”
13. Dead of night.
“Dead of night, I get this uncontrollable urge to wake up and crawl to the edge of my bed and peek down the hallway into the kitchen.
I can’t explain it but I literally felt possessed to do so. I was maybe 4 or 5. When I reached the edge of my bed and stared down the hallway I saw a figure, a ghost. It was my uncle. He had recently died due to a tragic car accident. He had a broken leg, was crossing the street, a truck lost control, my uncle couldn’t run fast enough with his broken leg so the truck ran him over.
So anyway, I’m staring at this figure and I realize it’s him. The ghost looked just like him, glasses and all. It didn’t have legs which made sense to me since he lost both of his legs due to the accident.
But I remember I didn’t feel scared at all. I was in a daze. I felt this warmth in my chest. It was so calming. We were just staring at each other. I know it was only for a few seconds but it felt like a lifetime. After those few seconds it was almost as though he heard a loud noise.
He jumped and scurried down the other end of the hallway. I snapped out of it and started to sweat profusely. I was shaking. I tried to tell my sister about it but she told me I was scaring her. I wasn’t even all that close to my uncle since I was so young.
I still think of him and that moment often.”
“The summer after I graduated high school I got a job delivering pizza to help save money for college. I had a lot of run ins with some pretty weird characters but nothing like what happened this one night.
It was a Friday night. We deliver pizzas until 3am Friday’s and Saturday’s. It was 2:45am and we were preparing to close when our manager said we got a call for a delivery at place almost 20mins away. Being the desperate for money teenager I was, I offered to do the delivery.
This was before smart phones had gps so I used a Garmin. I plugged in the address and off I went. The Garmin took me deep into the backwoods of rural Texas.
I finally arrive to my destination. The house looked like something in a horror movie. Big wooden two story house with no lights on. The first thing I notice about the house was that the front door was wide open. I sat in my car for a few minutes debating on turning back and claiming no one was home. Something just didn’t feel right.
I needed the tip money so I sucked it up and approached the house. When I got to the open front door I didn’t enter. Instead I knocked. No one answered. I knocked again as loud as I could. No response. I finally got the courage to say something, “pizza delivery! Anyone home?” There was a few seconds of silence until I heard a weird voice, “upstairs!”
I walked in the house and could barely make out my surroundings because it was so dark. I make it to the bottom of the stairs and look up into the dark abyss. Again I said, “pizza delivery.” The voice spoke again, “come up stairs. I can’t get out of bed.”
Something was very off about this voice. It didn’t sound normal. The best I can describe it is if a dog somehow learned to talk but still had trouble pronouncing human words. The hairs stood up on my neck. There was no f*cking way I was going up there. The tip wasn’t worth it.
I placed the pizza at the bottom of the stairs and shouted, “I’m leaving it here at the bottom of the stairs. Have a good night.” As I turned away the voice said, “No! Come up stairs! I can’t get out of bed!” I replied, “ I’m sorry I’m not even allowed to enter someone’s home on the job. You’ll have to come get it.”
I heard some loud banging from up stairs with the voice shouting at full volume, “COME UP STAIRS! I CANT COME OUT OF BED!” The voice shouted this over and over again like it was a recording on a loop. The banging got louder and louder as the voice got louder.
I noped the f*ck out of there at full speed. To this day I have no idea what the f*ck happened in that house.
They were supposed to pay by cash so I guess they got the pie on the house.
F*ck no I never went back. Not even during the day.
A lot of people are saying old or crippled person. Then who the f*ck left the front door wide open?
No I didn’t try to turn on the light. It was already so late I just wanted to drop off the pizza and go home.
A lot of you are talking about skinwalkers. I had to google it and I must say this story is a lot more creepier after reading about them.
This was in Spring, TX.”
