Throughout 2017, people had some of the spookiest experiences. From haunted dorms to creepy premonitions, here are the ones that freaked us the fuck out.
1. The rotten roommate:
"I was living with my sister for a while, and one morning I watched an all-black humanoid form go into the bathroom down the hall. I sat up in bed and peered around the corner, and could see the faucets turning the water on and off — like, physically moving. Another time, this same 'mass' drifted from one wall to the next in the living room, making our dog bark and whine for an excruciatingly long time. Whatever it was seemed menacing, but I moved out before I could find out what was going on."
"My family went out of town for spring break and brought a Ouija board. A few minutes into playing, the kitchen sink turned on all by itself. When they asked who it was, the board read, 'RENAY.' My great-grandma’s name was Reyna. Since then, my mom refuses to play it again. She thinks it was her grandma telling her she’s still watching. Her grandmother was also very much against Ouija boards, so she felt like she was getting in trouble with the dead."
"My last house had a poltergeist. A full coffee can once flew across the kitchen and crashed against the microwave. My mom woke up from something pinching and pulling her legs, and one night when I was trying to sleep, something shook my bed until I sobbed, begging it to stop. The worst thing that happened though was one night around 3 a.m. when I saw a shadow on the wall next to me while I was downstairs. I thought it was my mom, so I turned to ask why she was up so late, but there was no one there. It began to feel like someone was choking me, and then all the lights flickered before cutting out completely. When that ended, I ran to my room and sobbed under my blankets for the rest of the night. My mom didn’t believe me until she spent a weekend alone in there."
"I'm very close to my best friend, and one day while on my bus home from school, she called me frantically, telling me to get off. She said she imagined my bus having some kind of freak accident. I thought it was weird, but waited to board the next bus anyway. Turns out another bus had just had a bad accident. It was the one I was just on. I'm not a believer in these things, but this incident really shook me."
"My roommate sat up in her bed one night, looked toward the corner of our room, and kept saying, 'hello.' She did this for about three minutes. After saying 'hello' several times, she slowly turned her head as if watching someone walk, and then looked under the bed. Her head shot up so quickly and she looked at me. I have never seen someone look that terrified in my life. Suddenly, she fell back on the bed and went to sleep. I ran out of that room so fast."
