The Cell Phone

A couple of months ago, my friend’s cousin (a single mother) bought a new cell phone. After a long day of work, she came home, placed her phone on the counter, and went watch to TV; her son came to her and asked if he could play with her new phone. She told him not to call anyone or mess with text messages, and he … Continue reading The Cell Phone

Jerked Around

“This happened in the desert of Utah. I was a wilderness guide and lived out of my truck, so I camped nearly every night. I was totally used to weird noises, twigs cracking, whatever. One night it was extremely calm and quiet, but there was a weird vibe in the air. A couple friends and I were on BLM land in Utah near Moab, and … Continue reading Jerked Around

A Man’s Deceased Wife Called 911 To Save His Life

“I’m a medic that primarily works nightshift/graveyard, and we have seen some freaky stuff. This is the creepiest one that I can’t explain. (Aside from the murders we work, assaults, rapes, etc.) Got called out to a home, unknown reasons, ‘man down,’ and we were first on scene. A female frantically called, gave the address and apparently ‘can’t wake her husband up,’ then hung up. … Continue reading A Man’s Deceased Wife Called 911 To Save His Life

The Vanishing Of Orion Williamson, Selma AL.

Is the tale of Alabama’s most famous disappearance true? You decide. One hot July afternoon in 1854, a farmer named Orion Williamson – or other names, depending on the version – was walking on his farm near Selma. Reportedly, Williamson’s wife and family were on the front porch of the farmhouse. Then, neighbors passed by and waved to Williamson, who was walking in ankle-deep grass. … Continue reading The Vanishing Of Orion Williamson, Selma AL.

Campers Beamed Up By Aliens

We were camping around different area of the US, hitting 13 states. It wasn’t a trip with a firm itinerary, and we drove through Amish country in Indiana despairing that we wouldn’t find a campground as it was late in the day. But in the middle of Amish country we found a lovely campground with a nice big pond for swimming. We were the ‘weirdos’ who do tent camping, … Continue reading Campers Beamed Up By Aliens

Small Humanoid Creature

This happened about eight years ago when I was 21 and working as a camp counselor for Camp Tommy in Fishkill, NY. The place is basically a bunch of cabins in the woods on top of a mountain, each cabin a half-mile apart from the other, so you’re pretty isolated in the woods. One night at about 1am I was sneaking off to meet my camp GF (you’re supposed to stay in … Continue reading Small Humanoid Creature

A Missed Stop

This is a true story, told to me by a man who had been working as a murder investigator for over 30 years at the time. I was told this story after asking what the creepiest case he’d ever been involved in was. This happened in northern Scandinavia in the late ’80s, in a part of the country that is mostly covered in dense pine … Continue reading A Missed Stop

Rope

Jay was a normal kid. An absolutely, completely normal kid. I’m not sure why that happened… but I do know, the day we learned that Jay Martin was found strung up in a fucking oak tree in the park, the entire neighborhood wept. Jay made average grades, played trumpet in the band, and had average looks—absolutely nothing about him was special. Nothing really made him … Continue reading Rope

The Last Tale of a Grandmother

Right now, I’m 81 years old, and had to ask my granddaughter for help to write this down. You see, I have a confession before I go. My name is Emma, and I had a sister named Elisabeth. Having been born only one year apart, we were really close, and looked very alike. One could say we were fraternal twins. Me and Lisa had always … Continue reading The Last Tale of a Grandmother
