Reader Submission: The Haunted Doll

creepy_doll

“I bought a haunted doll from eBay not too long ago. I got the idea after researching haunted items on the Internet and coming across the topic of haunted dolls.

I have always loved dolls, porcelain dolls in particular. I looked on eBay and found one I liked that was in my price range. The ad said she was a schoolteacher that was murdered, but that she still had a very sweet disposition . I felt relatively sorry for her, so I emailed the seller asking if this doll was a positive energy. The seller assured me that she was.

Reader Submission: Ka-bala Possession

creepy_doll

“Back in the early 1970’s there was game called Ka-Bala. It was supposed to be a fortune-telling game. This game was EVIL. There were tarot cards and the player were supposed to chant while this large, black marble spun around the board. Whenever the marble stopped, you had to pick up a tarot card and read it.

Anyhow, my sister got the game for Christmas when she was about 10 and I was 9. My younger sister and brother would use the game while the three older kids were at school. I had this little fairy doll that was my favorite. My younger sister would play with the doll while I was at school too. One day my younger sister said ‘Your doll comes to life.’ Not believing this for a moment, I said, challengingly, ‘Show me.” She picked up the doll and said ‘Be alive.’ And I know how crazy this sounds, but the doll’s body began to take on the look of human flesh. Being young and not understanding anything about demonic possession, I kept it…at first.

A reader submitted these true tales about eerie dolls that walk and talk. Enjoy!

It Moves Even Now
“Once I went to a charity shop and bought a pot doll with ginger curly hair and a green Scottish dress. I took it home and put it on the bottom step of my staircase. I then went upstairs to get something, but when I got down the doll had moved to the mat at the front door.

The following morning I awoke, and my husband said he had got up in the night and heard singing and footsteps. In the afternoon, my husband went out and I was alone. I made myself a sandwich, and I went to the living room. I turned the lights on and sat down. Two minutes later, the light turned off by itself and the doll was on the sofa next to me. I got up and turned the light back on, sat down, and two minutes later the lights went off again. Ever since I bought the doll I’ve heard singing and laughing and I’ve seen it moving…even now.”

Reader Submissions: Six True Tales of Ghosts and Ghouls

haunted cemetery

Here are a few short ghost stories I’ve received from readers. Do any send a chill down your spine?

Princess Seraphina
“I’m pretty sure my daughter is ‘friends’ with St. Seraphina. She talks about her and Seraphina all the time and tells us that Seraphina is a princess. What an odd name for a four year old to randomly come up with. I didn’t know anything about Saint Seraphina until I Googled it. The only thing I came up with was Ben Affleck’s daughter’s name and this Saint. No cartoon characters generated on the web search. So where did she get the name? Also, she twirls around talking to “Princess Seraphina.” not kidding here. It’s uncanny.

Last night, I opened my master bedroom door and sitting in front of my daughter’s door (we have hardwood floors) was a crumpled up piece of paper – a receipt – that was spinning by itself on the ground. FAST. When I stepped  forward, the paper abruptly stopped. When showing this spinning act to my wife, the paper wouldn’t spin at all. It’s almost like the floor was greased up. Just spinning. I understand that Saint Seraphina was a “spinner?” Before the spinning incident, my wife and I had a huge fight. It was almost like something was telling me to chill out. I’m not crazy, but this is a very true story.”
