Reader Submission: Haunted Bedroom

“When I was about 7 years old, I shared a room with my younger brother. One night, we were going to bed. After we turned out the lights and tucked ourselves into our beds, I saw a blue flash above our beds. It stayed for about a few seconds, but it was almost as if my eyes were playing tricks on me. It was almost as if someone had taken a picture and that lingering blob light thing was in front of my face.

At first, I thought it was nothing. However, my brother said out loud in a scared voice ‘Hey, did you see that blue flash?’. I couldn’t believe he saw it too. We have no idea what it was, but we both saw it so I wasn’t imagining things.

Later on in the year in that same room, we were again in bed, and my brother was asleep, but I was lying awake. Out of nowhere, my lunch kit that was on top of my dresser flew off, hit the garbage bin, and then fell to the floor. I was so scared I pulled the covers over my head. I let some time pass hoping whatever it was, was gone. However, later (maybe 30 minutes later) something else fell and hit the floor. To this day, I have no idea what was going on in my room.”

Reader Submission: A Brother’s Visit

weird shadow

“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.

It was glowing slightly blue, but very transparent. It was a male who looked anywhere from 19-26 years old. We just stared at each other for a while, eyes completely locked, both of us frozen. I wasn’t scared until I blinked and suddenly he wasn’t there anymore.

Reader Submission: The Demonic Entity

shadow person

“I lived in New Baden, Illinois with my boyfriend and our four-year-old daughter. We lived in a green mobile home haunted by a demonic entity.

When we first got to the home, I saw something shoot down the hallway. I said, ‘There’s something in here with us, something not human.’ My boyfriend said I just needed to get used to the new surroundings, but I know what I saw. It was a black, human-shaped shadow, and it ran down the hall every time I took a shower. My daughter’s closet was on the other side of the wall, and she saw him too.

Every night, I closed my daughter’s closet door before she went to bed. Every morning, I found it open. I said, ‘Baby, if you’re afraid of the bad man in the closet, why do you open the door?’ She said, ‘I don’t. He does.’

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?
