to start a new spooky thread even though it's the wrong time of year?

Mine is not terribly exciting but it seems only polite to make a contribution grin

I live a few doors down from the house where I was born, very close to the village church. I grew up listening to the sound of the bells. When I moved back I was pleased to hear their familiar chimes again, until I discovered that the church had long been derelict and the clock stopped years ago.

Still, I continued to hear the bells nearly every night, until the church was finally demolished last year.

there is probably a completely rational explanation for what I was actually hearing but tonight I am living in the land of woo and whimsy

Anymore for anymore?

I honestly think there's something in my house. My self and dd (17) have both heard the gas cooker clicking in the middle of the night (we were the only ones in the house) and if a light is left on downstairs, once we're in bed, it will suddenly switch off with an audible click.

Went camping in the woods once to just get away from it all for a weekend. Took my camera with me to get some good shots of nature. The trip went well, very relaxing. Enjoyed the solitude.

Got the pictures developed.

Was thumbing through them, a couple of the nature shots came out nice.

Then I came across a photo of me sleeping...

Following.

I haven't got any myself but love reading them also

Sparkly - there's probably a reason for the gas clicking - faulty sparker.
Not sure about the light though ....

squiggly please tell me that's not true?

Creepy Korean Comic I will be nice and warn you. You will shit bricks after reading this one. smile

SunkenDream Wed 09-Jul-14 21:45:09

Erm, is CreepyPasta one of the websites responsible for the unmitigated horror that is the Slender Man story?

Because if it is I am steering well clear of your bloody goat man link!!!

Sparklypants Wed 09-Jul-14 21:45:48

Thing is it's only at night and only occasionally. We've never heard it in the day....

MillyStar Wed 09-Jul-14 21:46:17

Marking my place! I looooove these threads even though I can't sleep for days after reading them!

Can anyone link to the really long one that was on here? I used to read it every night, I can remember one mumsnetter posting about her uni friends seeing 'shadow men' and I his under the duvet when I was in bed for aaaages

Cookiepants Wed 09-Jul-14 21:49:30

Got halfway through the Korean comi and bottled it. Anyone be brave and tell me the end?

WalkWithTheLonelyOnes Wed 09-Jul-14 21:50:35

sunken it is indeed. For some reason I found that Pasta terrifying

ChristopherRobin Wed 09-Jul-14 21:50:51

I'm not reading creepy Korean comic until someone confirms they are still alive after reading it, I'm too scared! Is something going to jump out at me?!

WalkWithTheLonelyOnes Wed 09-Jul-14 21:51:45

I've got a couple that happened when I moved into my flat. They terrified me but bore other people grin

Berryglitter Wed 09-Jul-14 21:52:58

I've read it, I am alive and not majorly scared.

If only it'd do the housework too sparkly.

needaholidaynow Wed 09-Jul-14 21:54:12

I'm scared of clicking on that comic link! I was reading about the goatman and I bottled it as I was convinced something scary was gonna pop up whilst reading it!

<Wimp>

I love this sort of thing, I have had a few experiences myself. Will try and copy and paste from another website I posted on.

As a child I was home alone and sitting on the computer, must have been about 14. I heard the swoosh of an arrow flying through the air and felt it whizz past my head... Well of course it was nothing but I was absolutely convinced that I had heard and felt it. It scared me so much that I left and went to a friends house. I still have no idea what it was other than an overactive imagination.

TheLoveGorilla Wed 09-Jul-14 21:56:30

Needaholidaynow me too! I had to squint a little to stop the white writing from blurring against the black background, I thought that picture from the exorcist was going to pop up any minute!

Dwerf Wed 09-Jul-14 21:57:37

I've seen that comic before. the warning is that some bits are animated. Bit of a jump scare.

Not so much spooky, but a bit weird. I've lived in this house for 11 years, and every so often, you can hear a ding ding ding sound. Like someone hitting metal with metal. Always the same sound, the same notes. Very random. Never managed to discover the source. It's not in the house but somewhere within a half mile radius. Did wonder if it was something to do with the railway track, but that's about two or three miles away.

Shit the BED WalkWith that is terrifying! it's made me feel all weird and skittery.... Thank god I hate camping..... shock
