Shadow people – shadow-like humanoid figures seen mostly in peripheral vision – are a well-known paranormal phenomenon. However, not all shadows appear human. Here are four creepy tales of oddly shaped shadows behaving in unnatural ways.
The Circular Shadow
In a recent thread on Reddit, one user described a “perfect, circular shadow” that hovered outside his window at night.
“It was free floating and wasn’t attached to anything. There’s nothing outside my window it could be attached to anyway,” he writes. “The thing moved in irregular patterns, including RIGHT ANGLES and pendulum movements. I have never been so terrified in my life, and it was there for over 45 minutes. I saw it one more time about a week later and now, a year later, I have to sleep with a thick blanket covering my window.”
