What is the creepiest or scariest story you know? I don't care if its true or just an urban legend or story. I am in the mood to be creeped out plus I'm trying not to have to clean. I was driving home from work last night down some dark country lanes and couldn't get the stories about the stick/shadow men things out of my head. V scary!

So I was reading this thread in bed last night... On my phone, in the dark. Feeling a bit "woo" and then there was an almighty crash against the bedroom door.

I hid under the covers and pathetically rang DP (who was downstairs) to ask him to come investigate as I didn't dare get out of bed.

The cat had knocked the hoover over into the door!

Never again will I read scary threads before bed!

OMG I have just googled The Hands Resist Him, the first search was Wikipedia, I clicked it and the screen went white. I pressed the go back arrow as it was taking ages to load, screen flashed with Wiki page but wouldn't load. I tried another link - not going back to it! - and was scrolling through the pages and the computer froze and logged itself off! I'm not usually susceptible to that sort of thing but this has freaked me out a bit.

Just glad I'm reading this during the day, hopefully I would have forgotten about this by tonight!

I've told all before but I get nothing anymore even reading this in bed last night doesn't phase me I think it's because I'm loads more settled now.
There was an area in my old place of work where you instantly felt upset where you stood. It was weird I didn't say anything but then a colleague said it too. One night I'd worked late and had to go back into drop off the car keys as I was off the next day.
It literally took all my self discipline to go in and I switched on all the lights. Terrified I moved through the sad area to the key cupboard chucked the keys in but didn't even sign the book. Ickes the cupboard with shakey hands and ran out of there switching the lights off as I did.
I got to the bottom of the stairs to leave the building and the keys I had just put back were sprawled in a bunch on the floor.
I picked them up and ran like hell. Got to my own car and rang dh is hysterics. He came to meet me. D we took the keys back together.
He believes there is a rational explanation for everything but admitted he had never felt do uneasy in his whole life.

Ok, I've just googled the hands that resist him, and I have read thus far. Whoeverheardofawormskinrug, Last night I checked in on here as I couldn't sleep and I ended up having to go downstairs and convince OH to come to bed with me, and to leave a bathroom light on, that's enough for a sensitive soul like me!

I've finally got through them all now it's daytime. Too scared to read them in the dark! <wimp>

That picture Hands Resist Him is really freaky.The poor boy in the picture looks so sad.And the girl looks really evil,that gave me nightmares for weeks.

They are supposed to talk as well when they think no one is around.

When I was about 14 my friends and I went through a stage of playing ouji board. I was a scaredy cat so decided not to sit in the circle I just watched.

The spirits weren't coming through the board by moving the cup they were speaking through my friend who was the youngest of the group. She was getting very scared and said a black spirit was coming to her. Then she shouted stacey your grandpa's chasing it away with his stick. She then described my granddad in detail and said she was speaking to him. So I said if its really him what did I always do? (Only very close family knew) and she said sing all the way to nursery and back home. Everyone knew you. Which was true, I instantly started crying.

Another time they played (again I sat out, still freaks me out) they were told a boy A would be stabbed (he was) a girl J would be raped (her step father) and the other would be an alcoholic (she was). They tried to smash the glass and it kept bouncing all over until someone managed to drop a heavy brick on it.

Another one happened to my aunt. My uncle her brother died at the age of 26 and her other brother died of cot death. It was the 70's and everyone was into ouji boards, fortune tellers and such. She went to a white witches meeting. In the middle of the table was a goats skull. This skull was moving around the table on its own. Finally stopping at my aunt. While the white witch spoke to her there was gasps round the room. My aunt was oblivious to the goings on until the meeting was finished and the group approached asking what it was like being transformed. She had no idea what they meant. Apparently her face became a mans (uncle S) and her hands became a babies (uncle I). People who worked with her future hubby actually told him the story before they met. Very strange.

Hello all,

We're going to move this to Other Subjects to save this thread for spooky posterity.

OMG some of these stories are very scary.

Not in the same league as some but during a night shift one of my patients woke up saying she'd just dreamt her husband had been visiting her. At around 7am we got a phone call from her daughter to say he had died in the night sad
