TELL US NOW. by Rebecca N. shares, Growing up, I would see a dark figure reflected in the TV. I hated having to get up after everyone went to bed. It was always there. Always watching. When I got older, it moved to the corner of my bedroom. When my friend saw it too, I knew I wasn't imagining it all. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Laura B. shares, I was a projectionist for a seven house theatre. I was threading up #5 and felt a definite tap on my shoulder. I figured it was my boss messing with me (everyone loves to sneak up on the projectionist) Turned around, no one there. No one else was even in the booth. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Gavin F. says, Lived in a house that I would often wake up at night to the smell of cigarette smoke. My wife couldn't smell it, thought I was nuts. Until our three-year-old said, 'Maybe it's the old man,' who he said he would see in the hallway. We didn't live there long. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Jonathan S. says, I was in the kitchen making a grocery list, and an older style radio beside me turns on by itself. I had to turn the volume knob down for it to switch off. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Trevor W. says, My mom, myself, and my girlfriend were sitting in the living room of our house. We were playing a game when my mom said 'knock on wood' and knocked on the coffee table. Right after that, someone slammed a fist against the wall between our living room and kitchen three times (enough to make the picture move). Checked the kitchen and, as expected, no one there.

TELL US NOW. Sophie M. works in senior care, saying, Lights flickering at the moment someone passes, new residents claiming to see people who aren't there, and describing to a T the resident that passed away in the room before the new person moved in. One bloke would make a particular noise repeatedly, loudest when the breakfast tray was coming, and we could hear that noise at breakfast time every so often after he passed- even new staff who never worked with him.

TELL US NOW. Becky B. says, The house I grew up in was built in 1860s. During the 80s when I was a young child, I swore I could hear babies crying and what sounded like a woman screaming at night. Learned in my teen years that the house was used as a birthing house in the 1880s. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Dru G. shares, I was living with a friend who lived in an older house that had always felt a little off to me. One night, around 3 am, I randomly took my headphones out and heard the sound of a woman groan, then heard the sound of one of the chairs in the dining room move downstairs. My roommate, the only other person in the house, was upstairs in her room asleep. I moved out two weeks later. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Randy B. says, Went into the basement at an old, soon-to-be torn down hospital and entered a room that turned out to be the morgue. It was 20 Celsius out, go inside and you can see your breath. As I entered, something flew out past me and hit the wall behind me. It was a rock. Turned the flashlight on, and no one was in the room.

TELL US NOW. Bretlee G. tells US, Used to live in a house that was originally built pre-Civil War .After living there a while, we started hearing thumps. Would try to have people visiting hear the thumps, but they would just stop. Searched everywhere for the noises, found nothing. One night we're going to bed and just as I'm about to fall asleep I hear a DISTINCT growl from my daughter's baby monitor. Not wanting to scare my wife, I ignored it. That is, until my wife asked, 'Did you hear that?' I get the kid, and we don't get

TELL US NOW. Nora B. tells US, I was nodding off one night and startled awake seeing my granddad's face in front of me, just briefly I hadn't really thought of my granddad in quite a while so it struck me as odd. Next day I was told that he had passed. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Lucy G. says, There was a ghost dog in the old Georgian era house I lived in during uni. It used to run to the front door and bark once, then vanish, and repeat the action precisely the next day. It paid no attention to anyone else or anything else, it was almost like a video playing.

TELL US NOW. Jose E. tells US, Working as an EMT you'd hear stories and rumors in the hospital. There was one time I was going through a few rough weeks. After transferring the patient over there to the triage nurse, I went to the cafeteria to fill out some paperwork. There was an older paramedic sitting there. He saw I was a bit frustrated and sat next to me, and chatted. He gave me wise words that helped. I got up and left. After that, I felt really good and positive. A few weeks later, my boss calls me

TELL US NOW. Peter G. shares, I had a dream where I had a different face, and I spoke 'my' name in the dream, saying 'You are , and you will remember the ship and the fire.' Thinking that was kind of ominous, I googled the name when I woke up and found an obituary for a guy of that name, with a similar yet slightly older face, and who became a fireman after retiring from the Navy. A man whom I had never met and lived in the USA (where I never have). His funeral was that very

TELL US NOW. Alexander T. says, Saw my dog walk up the stairs and lie down in her favourite spot in the middle of the staircase early one morning, but then I remembered she'd been dead for about two years. I wasn't freaked out because she was my nanny dog and protected me as a kid so if she stuck around it'd only be to look after me. CRACKED.COM

TELL US NOW. Bryan B. says, My 15-year-old cousin died when I was six. The night after we went to the viewing (the first time I'd ever seen a dead body) a bright funnel stood all night in the doorway of my bedroom. I immediately thought it was my cousin watching over me. Nobody would believe me because I was an imaginative child and there was a commercial on TV about a white tornado, which is what I called it.
