Imaginary friends. Pretend playmates? Or something more sinister? The five creepy tales below come from Reddit.com and show that imaginary friends aren’t always the stuff of make believe.

The Girl in the Closet

“When my daughter was three she had an imaginary friend named Kelly who lived in her closet. Kelly sat in a little rocking chair while she slept, played with her, etc. Typical imaginary friend shit. Anyway, fast forward two years, the wife and I are watching the new Amityville (the one with Ryan Reynolds) and our daughter walks out right when dead girl goes all black eyed.

“It was around 6th grade when I was about 11 or 12. My sister and I shared a bedroom, and we had both fallen asleep in the same twin-sized bed. It was around 2:30 a.m. when I randomly woke up and turned to see a shadow at the foot of the bed, facing my way.

Ghostly Submarine: The USS Thresher

On April 10, 1963, the USS Thresher sank during a routine test dive, taking 129 souls down with her. Three years later, a family out on a yacht reportedly saw the doomed submarine slip beneath the waves once more.

“Looking into the wind and spray, the five-strong family saw the name Thresher painted on the side of the submarine and saw it was badly damaged along the waterline,” Alan Wood writes in his book, Military Ghosts.

“Suddenly, the submarine rose bodily into the air and sank quickly beneath the rough running sea. Two sailors visible on the submarine did not move as it sank and went down in their positions.”

After returning to shore, the yacht skipper discovered that the Thresher had sank in the same spot he and his family had seen the submarine. Are the victims’ ghosts still out there today, 54 years later?
