Best creepy story that I heard was from an American I met in a hostel who swears it was true. I won't try and retell the long version, so here is the short one: He went camping in some forested mountains alone despite being warned that it was a bad idea. His friends said it was dangerous, no one would be around to help him if he hurt himself etc, other people warned him that there were all sorts of crazy people living out in the wild that love to screw with campers. He spent the whole weekend up there, hiking during the day, taking photos, sleeping in his tent etc, and had no problems whatsoever. After he got home he went through his photos and found one that appeared to be of him fast asleep taken from the corner of his tent.

Creepiest thing that happened to me was years ago when I was quite young. I used to share a bedroom with my brother at the back of our house and one night I was awoken by a rhythmic humming sound. It would increase in intensity and then decrease again. I thought it was just machinery or something, but then it started to get louder and louder as the minutes passed. A light then started to shine through the curtains. It too got brighter and more intense as the humming got louder.

This went on for around 20 minutes and my brother was still fast asleep as if he couldn't hear a thing. I was petrified and didn't dare move in bed. I had no idea what was causing the light and sound. Eventually the sound became deafening and the light lit up the whole room, as if whatever was causing it was right outside the window. I had to get up and see what it was.

Nervously I opened a slit in the curtains and......................everything stopped. Immediately. The sound was gone and the light had disappeared. I pulled open the curtains to get a good look, nothing, just the back garden.

My heart was still pounding so couldn't get back to sleep for an hour or so. To this day I've no idea what it was, but it scared the absolute **** out of me!

I heard about this "thing".

They say it's as big as four cats, and it's got a retractable leg so as it can leap up at you better and you know what, it lights up at night, and it's got four ears. Two of them are for listening and the other two are kind of back-up ears, and it's claws are as big as cups and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps and herself was tellin' me that it's got magnets on it's tail so's if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you, and instead of a mouth it's got four arses.

That is fcuking creepy, even if its bull****.

Ever see Sinister, or The Omen? This is similar:
When my parents went on their honeymoon to Spain, they decided to hire out a car and drive around the local countryside. Long story short, after a few hours they came to the ruins of an amphitheathre and, assuming that it was just a rural bullring, decided to eat lunch there. It was in very good condition, so my dad snapped a few shots of my mam in the pit. However, at about 15:00, the temperature suddenly dropped, and a sense of foreboding came over her. Dad insisted in one last shot before leaving.
Dad is a bit of an amatuer historian, so afterwards the first stop was a local guidebook, to check out the history of the place. It was originally a muslim theatre, before the spaniards, under the command of Ferdinand Petore (a notably bloodthristy man) captured the area. Petore decided to stage his own show and performed a rendition if an Old Testament battle, with his soldiers as the forces of Joshua and the local preachers as the losing side. He forced their wives and children to watch. The locals kept it abandoned because the believe it to be haunted by the ghosts of dead "actors" every Sunday at 3. When the pictures were developed the ones from the theatre were missing, and replaced by pictures of a man facing away from the camera, in the market.
Not bad, eh?

On the opposite side of the street, walking in my direction, was a British army foot patrol. 2 guys in front and 2 guys walking backwards behind them, as they used to do.

Some idiot on the construction site knew the soldiers were on the other side of the partition and proceeded to repeatedly bang the wooden partition with a hammer just as they walked by, making it sound like the foot patrol was under gun fire. They immediately hit the ground with their guns at the ready, and so did everyone else within sight. Myself and my friend lay there watching the soldiers, who appeared very nervous. About 20 seconds passed, but it seemed like a lifetime. They heard a few people laughing from within the site, then they realised it was a practical joke.

No joke when your 30 feet away from an armed soldier who might be panicky

Height of the troubles...

Had got the bus to the southern side of the border near Swanlinbar
(Idiot of a bus driver wouldn't stop on the border)


I had a push bike and rucksack with me
Cold wet foggy day - bus driver left me off in middle of nowhere at rural bus stop

Had some 7 miles to go by bike acros the border to get to my destination
Day light was fading and the fog was getting thicker when I set off into the evening

Fog got so thick that I could just about make out the hedges on either side of the road. Then trouble as the front light started cutting out as the damp was affecting the terminals...

Up ahead loomed the concrete manned checkpoint. Here was I - cycling without any real noise and an intermittent flashing lamp on a dark foggy night whilst approaching an manned checkpoint in what was at best considered a dodgy area

Got to within about 10 feet of the checkpoint when I heard at least one gun being cocked and a squadie called out - Stop and put up your hands. Sh1ting myself I duely put the two hands in front of me

Out of the fog appeared the squadie, gun in hand - at which point he pissed himself laughing and asked

Do you do this kind of thing often?

Had to laugh, said no just occasionally and cycled off into the North...

Changed the pants later

True story

A few years ago, I was on a beach in wexford with three of my cousins. We'd been out for a while, and it was getting quite dark and very foggy. You could see the beams of light swinging through the sky from a couple of lighthouses along the coast. It was beautiful!

So we were walking for a while but couldn't find the pathway over the dunes to the car park, so I said I'd run up to the top of one of the dunes to take a look around and try to figure out where we were. The other three waited at the bottom.
I saw the lights of the car park dead ahead, grand, headed back down to tell them.

As I was coming down the dune, I saw, in the dim light, the three of them sitting on one of the little dunes, facing the sea. I said "Hey" or something like that. They didn't turn around, so I walked further towards them, until I was right beside them, and again I said "Hey. I'm back, the carpark's just over there" when I suddenly saw who I was talking to!
It was a middle aged woman. She just stared at me, no expression, just a blank stare.

I was about to apologise for disturbing her, but I looked over at the other two people sitting beside her and saw that the one on the far end wasn't a person, but just a tuft of grass that my eyes had turned into the outline of a person in the dim light! Then realised that middle one wasn't a person either.

I looked back at her and still saw a clear face of a woman looking at me, but as I moved back, her face just dissolved into grass and sand. I ran down the dune so fast! The other guys were only a few feet away from where I had been standing talking to the grass.

I saw her face so clearly. I mean, if she walked past me on the street, I think i'd recognise her.

Not quite as creepy as most of the stories in this thread, but I still find it freaky.


When I was about 8, my mom and nan had picked me and my brother up from school. We only lived about a 5 minute walk away, so walked home. As we were making our way down the road, alongside a pretty dodgy set of towerblocks, a man came up behind us. My mom looked straight ahead and clutched her bag with an urgency I'd never seen before. The man behind looked alright, didn't seem scary. (Mom later told me she 'suddenly got a bad feeling').

2 seconds after mom had grabbed her bag, the road turned into chaos. Ordinary looking cars passing by screeched and from them jumped dozens of police officers, completely surrounding us. The bloke behind us legged it and the police gave chase. The scale of the sting was not that of a common burglar, this guy was obviously pretty dangerous.

Even today, I don't know what it was that made my mom suddenly feel uneasy, but I'll always trust her instincts!

This kinda freaked me out.......

When I was growing up my record player(yes I am that old!!!) only had two settings,it was either switched off,or was on full blast,and it used to drive my mam crazy.
Inbetween songs I could hear her shouting at the top of her voice,"Stephen, Stephen.") (I'd shout down what did she want)(" turn that bleedin' music down") was her usual reply

It was a constant thing that happened,I was upstairs thinking I was Freddie or Bruce,blasting out the music,and my mam screaming at me to turn it down.


The week after mam died,I was in the house on my own having a bit of breakdown,and thought f*ck it,there's no-one in,I'm blow the roof off.

I can't remember what record I put on,started to give it socks,when I heard,or at least I thought I heard my mam shouting at me to turn it down,so I came out of my room and started shouting downstairs,"what mam,what do you want),when it dawned on me she wasn't there.

Freaked me out,as I heard her clear as day..............

When I was about 8 or 10 a group of us were forced to play roles in the mass at Christmas. The three wise men, Mary and Jesus and all that. There was something weird about the parish priest and it was strongly suspected that he was 'one of them', shall we say, so we all made sure never to be on our own with him (I can't remember his name but we called him Father Mickey Dodger).

We had to go to the church after school to rehearse for a week or so before Christmas day. He was always trying to get kids to come back to his house under various pretexts, but we'd always find a way of avoiding it. Then Christmas Eve came when the costumes were being handed out. He gave most of the costumes out at the last rehearsal, but said that the last few were back in his house, and myself and two other boys, Michael and Dara would have to go back with him to get them. There was no way to refuse, so we went back, whispering to each other to stay near the door and not to allow him to separate us.

So we went into his living room, and it was dark and grotty. The furniture was all ancient and in terrible condition, and there were dirty ashtrays and bottles of drink everywhere. He had a big table with a candle in a holder on it and there were piles of old books on the table. We crept over to the table to look at the book that was lying open but it was in some script we couldn't read. There was something very weird about it. It didn't look like a Bible or anything like that.

The priest came into the room with the costumes, and must have seen that we were a bit freaked out, so he was as friendly and reassuring as he could be. He started giving us our costumes and we began to relax a bit, but then the phone rang, one of those big old black bakelite things. He answered normally, and listened for a minute; then his eyes kind of glazed over and he said "Yes. At once" in this really weird voice. He walked out of the room as if he hadn't seen us and went upstairs. He had left the phone off the hook and Dara went over and picked it up.

"Who's there?" he said, trying to sound brave. Then his face went white and he froze completely. Michael had had enough. He grabbed Dara and me and we ran out of there. As we passed through the hall, the priest was coming down the stairs carrying a roll of black bags and a rope. We ran like Hell and didn't look back until we were back on our road.

We asked Dara what he had heard on the other end of the phone, but he was completely white; he just shook his head, and wouldn't say a single word. We went home, and after that we simply never saw him again. He wasn't there at mass the next day, and when we went to call for him after Christmas, his house was completely empty. When school started again, his desk was left empty for a few days and then just taken away. Another family moved into his house a few months later and that was that.

When I was about 8 or 10 a group of us were forced to play roles in the mass at Christmas. The three wise men, Mary and Jesus and all that. There was something weird about the parish priest and it was strongly suspected that he was 'one of them', shall we say, so we all made sure never to be on our own with him (I can't remember his name but we called him Father Mickey Dodger).

We had to go to the church after school to rehearse for a week or so before Christmas day. He was always trying to get kids to come back to his house under various pretexts, but we'd always find a way of avoiding it. Then Christmas Eve came when the costumes were being handed out. He gave most of the costumes out at the last rehearsal, but said that the last few were back in his house, and myself and two other boys, Michael and Dara would have to go back with him to get them. There was no way to refuse, so we went back, whispering to each other to stay near the door and not to allow him to separate us.

So we went into his living room, and it was dark and grotty. The furniture was all ancient and in terrible condition, and there were dirty ashtrays and bottles of drink everywhere. He had a big table with a candle in a holder on it and there were piles of old books on the table. We crept over to the table to look at the book that was lying open but it was in some script we couldn't read. There was something very weird about it. It didn't look like a Bible or anything like that.

The priest came into the room with the costumes, and must have seen that we were a bit freaked out, so he was as friendly and reassuring as he could be. He started giving us our costumes and we began to relax a bit, but then the phone rang, one of those big old black bakelite things. He answered normally, and listened for a minute; then his eyes kind of glazed over and he said "Yes. At once" in this really weird voice. He walked out of the room as if he hadn't seen us and went upstairs. He had left the phone off the hook and Dara went over and picked it up.

"Who's there?" he said, trying to sound brave. Then his face went white and he froze completely. Michael had had enough. He grabbed Dara and me and we ran out of there. As we passed through the hall, the priest was coming down the stairs carrying a roll of black bags and a rope. We ran like Hell and didn't look back until we were back on our road.

We asked Dara what he had heard on the other end of the phone, but he was completely white; he just shook his head, and wouldn't say a single word. We went home, and after that we simply never saw him again. He wasn't there at mass the next day, and when we went to call for him after Christmas, his house was completely empty. When school started again, his desk was left empty for a few days and then just taken away. Another family moved into his house a few months later and that was that.
what did your friend hear from the phone?
