19. A little girl was possessed by a demon
My dad is a police officer and he was called to an old castle-like house on the outskirts of town. The man who called was telling him about his daughter who was acting strange. She was talking in a deep voice and speaking in swear words and high level vocabulary (she was only 10 or so) and being all around creepy. My dad said,” I think you need an exorcist.” And left that house immediately. He’s been a police officer for 12 years and he says that was the most scared he’s been and he’s seen people who have blown their brains out with a shotgun and people decapitated by a train.
20. We were stuck in a mental ward
We got a call of trespassers at an abandoned hospital during the daytime. There was on site security who kept it secure even though it was shut down. They swore they heard footsteps and talking on the second floor over the past few days. They locked down the entire perimeter and called us out there. There was no way out.
We went in there with 6 officers and started from the 7th floor and systematically checked every single room down to the bottom floor. There was no power so we were lucky it was still daylight and there were a lot of windows. It was an older hospital so they left old CRT monitors from the 1980s and 90s in there.
It was pretty eerie and reminded me a lot of the first scenes from The Walking Dead. We cleared down from floors 7 to 5 no problem. Once we hit the 4th floor it started getting weird. This was the hospital’s storage area. Instead of the big spacious rooms it was super cramped and cinder block walls. There were chain link cages all over the place with old locks on it. It seriously looked like a horror movie prisoner area where they locked victims up. It was also pitch black. The Hospital was so big that we worked in 2 man groups on each floor but naturally split up as the floors opened up more.
The 3rd floor was a mental ward area so the padded walls and pitch dark rooms started to get me a little nervous. The 2nd floor was by far the worst; the surgery ward. There were no windows, again it was pitch black, and there were large eerie operating rooms all over. In the middle of some of the rooms were large metal slabs where they would operate on people. I’m adjoining rooms they had huge peg boards where they stored the surgery power tools. How did I know it was power tools? They had marked the outlines of various drills, saws, and other painful looking devices. It was kinda freaky thinking about how many people had died in those rooms when they couldn’t save them.
I was definitely nervous clearing those rooms solo in pitch black with only a flashlight. We eventually cleared every single room on every single floor… And found nothing. The security guards swore up and down they always heard talking and footsteps down the halls though. We pretty much swore off that place and said not to call us any more.

21. An animal changed shapes in front of me
I recently started working as a security guard and one of my first assignments was the graveyard shift at a new housing development outside of town. Over the course of the three nights I worked there, I had some pretty bizarre things happen. While doing my patrols through the neighborhood, I would often see people watching me from the upper windows of the vacant houses, but when I would enter the house to investigate, they would be empty. One of the first things on my to-do list when I arrived on-site was to go through the eight model homes next to the real estate office and turn off all the lights and TVs. The first night, this part went smoothly, but the following night, as I was making my way through the kitchen of the fourth house, I heard the light switch click and all the lights in the kitchen went out. It wasn’t a power surge or a blown breaker, as all the appliances were still on and all the little green lights underneath the light switches were still lit. A few minutes later, I heard another click and the lights came back on, followed by the lights in the next house going out, but the TV remaining on. By the time I made my way to the next house, the lights were back on, but the TV was in standby (only possible by hitting the button on the front). As I was finishing up in the last house, I looked out the window and saw that the second and third houses were lit up again. The third night, the light situation got weirder. The lights would either turn off or on in a room as I entered and in one house, as I entered the kitchen, the hood light over the stove turned on. As I turned to look at it, I heard a series of clicks coming from the second floor, as if someone were running through the house turning on the lights. When I went up there, sure enough, many of the lights I had turned off were back on. In another house, a desk lamp turned itself back on three times. Another lamp in the same house that had a dimmer slowly started lighting up right in front of me. Now, for the worst events: As I was walking past one of the construction sites, I saw what appeared to be a skunk walk behind the port-a-potty. When it walked back out, however, it looked more like a black shi-tzu. It proceeded to change size, shape, and color several more times right in front of me (doberman, bloodhound, tan mastiff, then finally a yellow lab) before running off into the dark. I’m willing to concede all of these can either be chalked up to my mind/eyes playing tricks or a timer gone haywire (I was assured there wasn’t one), but this last one defies logical explanation. As I was walking back to the office around 2:30, I glanced up at one of the houses. As I did, something hit me in between my left pec and shoulder. Hard. Hard enough to stagger me. I weigh 250 lbs., so I’m not exactly little. It felt as if someone were walking the opposite direction on the sidewalk and shoved their way past me. I have since asked my supervisors not to assign me to that site again.
