    Some of these probably should have been edited down.

    You can publish this one if you do these again.
    My Grandmother’s house was really old, like it was built in 1775. I’ve had 4 weird encounters there, that I can remember, but this one spooked me the worst. I was still young enough that I required a night light (let’s say 4) but we had forgotten to pack mine so the bathroom light was on in the hall and the bedroom door was cracked. It was a warm night so the windows were open as well. I was jerked awake to a horrible screaming that I identified immediately as coming from outside. I raced to the windows and tried to look for the source. This was an old person neighborhood so no one was up past like 9 so I don’t have an answer for this. Needless to say, I was scared. I grabbed my stuffed animal and walked into the hall to grab my parents. I wasn’t going to call for them because my Grandma was asleep. They were both asleep downstairs.
    The bathroom light was out (probably turned off by my aunt when she went to bed) which didn’t help things. The hallway was pitch black except that the moon was coming in through the window at the end of the hall. Standing on the landing, in front of the window, was a tall thin shadow man. I knew he wasn’t my Dad. He lifted a “hand” and pressed a “finger” to his “lips” and said “hush” in this like long drawn out hiss. I screamed and almost immediately the hall light was flipped on from downstairs. He was gone and my parents couldn’t get me back to sleep.
    PS: I also, when I was quite young, apparently kept going on about the baby under this ancient oak in the back yard (of that creepy house). Us kids weren’t allowed under there because of a bad growth of poison ivy. Just last summer the tree had to come down after storm damage. Guess what they found in the roots? A small faded headstone, like they would put over baby graves.
    PPS: I’ve also been terrified of the attic and I once saw another shadow man ducking in and out of the old dog shed when I was home alone and the neighbors (the only source of contamination) were not using the house that season.

    I used to do field work in SD. When we had a large group of people out mapping rocks, we’d use a two tone whistle to get one another’s attention. We were imitating a local bird. Sounded just like the whistler in the link.

    The one with the wierd monster running on all fours in Arkansas sounds like it needs more attention

    1. Hudson says:

      Agreed! He should visit again, or take a swat team or something, thats creepy as f**k

  7. Emperor of Mankind says:

    Okay I did some research on discovered that the creature in #21 is called the Fouke monster and matches his description very closely.

    1. Admin says:

      Looks scary. But there has got to be a rational explanation.

    2. Hudson says:

      Thats got to be it!

  8. Vicious says:

    #22 might have been the sonic boom of a jet. No traces to find but loud as a f*cking bomb.
