24 People Share Haunting And Spooky True Stories


With the latest release of the ‘It’ movie, people are getting creeped out by clowns.

But believe it or not, Pennywise the Clown isn’t the scariest thing out there right now.

In fact, horror movies are a joke compared to the stuff that actually happens to people in real life.

1. After watching a scary movie you probably think to yourself ‘meh, it’s just a movie, doesn’t happen in real life’. But there are scarier things that happen on a regular basis that make for a good story. Redditors were asked to tell some of their scariest true stories, and they didn’t hold back. This’ll definitely prep you for the month of October. One Redditor wrote of his experience in a motel. “It usually takes me awhile to fall asleep. My wife is passed out. So I’m laying in the dark and I hear a voice coming from somewhere in the room, whispering: “I think they’re asleep now.” I bolt out of bed, turn on all the lights and start searching the room. I scare my wife. There was no one in the room. What I experienced is called a Hypnagogic Hallucination; not uncommon during the initial stages of sleep. But if I didn’t know that I’d think the room was haunted” (NWBoomer).

2. Stalking movies are terrifying, but it’s even worse when it happens to someone you know. “Somebody emailed my friend a bunch of pictures of his wife just going about her day. Some of them were taken through windows for their home. Police was called and everything, but nothing ever came of it. They actually moved because of it” (iMakeitSeemWeird).

3. “One morning my friend decided to go for a run. As she was running she noticed a van was following a few blocks behind her. She tried to lose them, but the van kept following. She ran to the first house she could find and banged on the door. No answer. She jumped into an empty pool in the backyard and hid while dialing 911. Police showed up. Apparently, the van was from a nearby HVAC business and had been stolen early that day” (pm_me_recipes_girl).

4. “I have a friend who came home from school one day to find that her house was broken into. She decided to go inside to look around. Her mom (on the phone) told her to go outside and wait for the police. Later the police discovered a crowbar that didn’t belong to the family. They said that the offender was still in the house when my friend got home and was waiting at the top of the stairs with the crowbar” (FlarpyBlunderguff).
