▶ Denmark Exorcised Ghosts

In Denmark, ghosts that had been exorcised-forced down into the earth and pinned in place with a stake driven through the heart-did not rest easily.  They lay in the dark, waiting for a chance to escape, and for that reason, people who ventured into lonely fields and meadows were warned not to disturb unmarked posts.  Too often, those who touched the wood heard an eager, muffled voice demanding freedom from the post that held it down.  “You pull,” the voice would whisper, “and I will push.”

▶ The Rabbit Doll

 submitted

One of the experiences we had in my old apartment was with this stuffed rabbit that my grandmother had given my mom back when she was a kid. My grandmother has been bed-ridden from Alzheimers since 2002, she isn’t able to speak anymore, so anything she gave to my mom is extremely important to her and she likes to display them out in the open. 

At this point it was just my mom and I living in the apartment, my brother had moved out with his girlfriend a couple months before this started happening. Anyways, when we first moved in my mom had put the rabbit on top of the VCR we had at the time so that it was facing you when you sat on the couch and watched television. It had been there for the two years that we had been living in the apartment before this happened. Over the course of a couple weeks we started noticing that the rabbit was actually being turned around to face the wall behind it while we weren’t in the room, and anytime you moved it back facing the couch, the next day when you woke up it would be facing the wall. At first we just attributed it to vibrations caused by walking around and whatnot, but after it started doing it on almost a daily basis, it became obvious that it was not being caused by the two of us walking around. This went on for probably about a month altogether, and then it just stopped. We went a couple of weeks without it being turned around, so we just kind of shrugged it off and went on with our lives. My mom is a huge skeptic, so she had a list of explanations for it, none of them really made any logical sense though. Then one day we went grocery shopping, we were gone for maybe an hour to an hour and a half. We got back home and as we were bringing the groceries in, we saw that the rabbit had been moved and was now facing the front door. It was one of the most nerve racking experiences of my entire life, walking into your house and seeing something that shouldn’t be there staring at you, it was just really unsettling. The next day I went into the living room and noticed that the rabbit was gone and when I questioned my mom about it all she said was “It doesn’t fit the decoration of the room.” And that was it. It’s been 5 years and I haven’t seen that rabbit since. 

Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: Your first explanation reminds me of the museum that recently discovered a moving statue was due to a busy road nearby—but just like you said, that seems unlikely in this situation from how specific the movements were, and the fact that the rabbit was stuffed.  7/10 for scares and thanks for sharing!

▶ My Ghost Story

 submitted:

Ok, so, I actually have a fairly interesting true story.

When I was little we lived on a farm and this is when things started happening, but my memory is a little fuzzy about some stuff because I was small so I’ll tell you what I remember of that…at night we used to be in our beds and hear footsteps like someone was walking around our kitchen and dining area in steel toe boots, and on more than one occasion my family saw unexplained things, but the thing that sticks out most in my memory was when my mom and I were alone in the house once and she was in the bathroom and I was 3 rooms away and heard her call me…well, we ran into each other half way and at the both time said,”What do you need?” apparently we both heard each other call for the other at the same time, but neither of us had said a word.

The house was just in general creepy…if you were trying to go to sleep at night you’d feel watched or even suffocated.

We moved when I was 12 and moved a few states away and things stayed quiet, but when I turned 15 things started happening again.

Dogs
This isn’t scary at all, but every year during summer time for about 5 years, my mother and I would look after her friends dogs when she went on holiday, we used to take them down to a stream where they’d play for a little while. Unfortunately both her dogs were put down last year, but whenever she goes on holiday now, there is always a smell of wet dog that lingers through my house the entire time she’s away, though I have no pet dog and squeaking noises, from their favourite play toy they had~

Blood Test

Its not really scary, nor supposed to be, but whatever.

To understand a certain bit, you need to know I am diabetic, and if my blood sugars go to low I will start dying.

I go to sleep with my door shut, and I’m a light sleeper and wake up if someone opens it, but only if someone opens it. I was sleeping, after going to sleep with a lower than usual nuber, at a five. I thought I’d be fine, but I stayed up a bit later, so I was probably on a four when I went to sleep.(four is when I start dying)

After a little while of sleeping, I woke up with a figure that looked sort of like my brother standing over me, telling me to get up. I asked if there was a problem, and my blood test kit hit my in the face. The figure simply said, “Test.”

I did a blood test, and asked if it could turn on the light, it told me there was a light on the side of the test kit. I found out I was a 2.6, which is very low. My dextros (sugar) hit me in the face and in my disorintated state, I found it hard to open, so I asked for help. Suddenly it wasn’t there. After a couple of seconds, I fixed the low blood sugars, and in the more concious state, I realised something.

My door had never opened. Whatever was in my room saved my life.

▶ Mackenzie Poltergeist

 submitted:

I’ve experience this myself when I went to the Fringe festival.

George MacKenzie was in charge of the Prison in the 17th Century and - working for King Charles II - persecuted the Scots Presbyterians known as Covenanters.

MacKenzie was also local Advocate and became infamous for the glee with which he would sentence the Convenanters to swing on the gallows. He was most definitely a “hanging judge” and gained the nickname “bloody” George Mackenzie.

MacKenzie’s tomb is near the site of the prison, however this is not where the poltergeist activity takes place. It seems that the ghostly judge prefers to haunt the last resting place of his victims within the prison.

The area has - like much of Edinburgh - been the site of much paranormal activity and ghost sightings over the centuries. However the poltergeist only really became active after an incident in 1998 when a “tired and emotional” local homeless man opened and desecrated the sealed MacKenzie tomb.

Since then the MacKenzie poltergeist appears to have been on a rampage and there have been numerous reports of tourists and visitors to the Covenantor’s Prison being set upon by an unfriendly entity.

Like many other poltergeists, Mackenzie has its victims. But unlike many other poltergeists, Mackenzie’s victims rise over hundreds. There is a book published on the entity - The Ghost Who Haunted Itself. 

I bought and read it when I went to Edinburgh last year. It certainly is a scare, and now you can embark on a tour. The tomb of Mackenzie certainly is spooky and gives off a horrible a vibe - if you look it too long, it feels like something looks back and makes you look away. I’m visiting again next year, I will embark on the tour, and hopefully tell you more about it!

Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: I found a link about the book you mentioned which is a good read.  Thank you for sharing—give us an update on what your second trip was like!

▶ Not that scary but this is what my Tia told me

 submitted:

I don’t really know if this is true but, one day when my sister and I were visiting our relatives down in Houston, my Tia Mary and Tia Anita went swimming late at night, so my Tia Mary started to tell us scary stories, she told us how when she was just a little girl she woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom (my grandma lives in a two story house, so my Tia had to go downstairs to use the bathroom, and this house was very old) when she got into the bathroom, (also there was a lump directly under the floor, she told me it was a well) she was using the toilet when the door handle started to jiggle suddenly, she sat there freaked out, she didn’t know what to do but to scream for her mom, when my grandma finally came to see what she was screaming about, she told her mom what happened and her mom replied saying that she didn’t see anyone out there.

Fuck Yeah Nightmares Mod Fey: My first thought was ‘wow what a rude ghost!' 4/10 for scares and thanks for sharing!
