“Happened to a friend of mine. It was about 1am and he heard a noise outside his front door. His front yard is really dark so he looked through the peep hole rather than opening the door, he couldn’t see anything but could tell something was below the peep hole. He decided to open the door slowly and as soon as he did an older lady who’s face was covered in blood and only wearing a t-shirt(no underwear or pants)tried to run into his house. He slammed the door on her and called the cops. While waiting for the cops he kept looking out the little hole on the door and every so often she would scurry back and forth on his front lawn. (I wasn’t there but I picture it like the alien at the birthday party in “Signs”). So the cops finally show up and detain the women and they get to the bottom of the story. It turns out the woman was his neighbor and she was extremely drunk. She had been drinking and locked herself out of her house and tried to get back in by braking the window with her face/hands.”
“My family has lived in rural Nebraska since they immigrated from Germany in the mid-1800s. Near the turn of the century disease was pretty rampant in the homesteading area and it killed off members of almost every family. When someone died from illness, time was of the essence in burying them as not to let the virus spread from the deceased to the living. This meant no wake periods.
So an aunt of some unknown number of “greats” preceding her relationship to me dies of some disease and she gets buried in the family cemetery on the the homestead. The dogs were very fond of her so it wasn’t too surprising that after the funeral the two dogs stuck near the grave.
The rest of the family began to think something of it when, a week and a half later, the dogs were still visiting her grave almost constantly. But they weren’t just at the grave. They were visibly distressed, frantic, and often barking while there.
This goes on for maybe two weeks when the family decides to check it out. They dig the casket up and open it.
The deceased’s hair has all been pulled out. Her fingers are raw and bloody and mangled from where, on the inside of the casket door, they can see deep scratches in the wood.
She was comatose when they buried her, and she came to while underground, spending probably her last five or so days alive in a buried casket.”
