I’ve got a scary story. About 4 times I’ve come back to this tab that I have kept open the whole time and the most dreaded thing has happened. The page has been reloaded and sent me back to the top. Read more

omg.  I would have been so tempted to go back there with several homies loaded for bear with my own “crutches” and confront the em effer...then again, my being is wired for fight when I get scared

I sooo wish you had taken a picture of that man. Not because I don’t believe you, but that I have a feeling he wouldn’t have shown up on camera.

I know you don’t want to dox yourself, but I’m also curious where this story takes place. We have a lot of these “secret cemeteries” in Colorado, also. Usually they were for pioneer families and were forgotten and abandoned many decades ago. Read more

This happened when I was around 13 or 14. My dad had recently passed away, so it was just me, my mom, and my 5-years-younger brother.

WHAT THE HELL was that terror in the shape of a man doing out there in the first place???? Does he just hang out there day after day waiting for someone to show up so he can do his little performance?

Years ago, when I was a young adult, I lived in a rural area outside of a small town. To get to my house, I had to drive through a section of a wooded area. Not quite big enough to be a forest, and if you walked enough in one direction or another, you’d hit cattle pastures and farmland. Read more

I must confess up front this is not particularly scary - but it is definitely ghostly. It just involves my father - the sweetest man ever - so how scary is that?! Lol. I grew up in the country on a farm with horses. Since we were so remote, and the driveway to my childhood home so long, my parents had installed a Read more
