Ghost report from Emilee on June 4, 2015:

“I lived in a house in July, in thick wood. It was upstairs in a house apartment. We were living there for maybe a month. I was home alone watching TV, and I could see the hallway perfectly the way I was sitting. I heard walking down the hallway and then saw a black figure walk around the corner. I jumped up and it went back around the corner after a second. I walked over there thinking someone was in the house, but there wasn’t anything there. I checked the bedrooms and closet, and nothing.

A few days later I had a nightmare that seemed so real. I was laying in my bed the same way in my dream as I was actually laying. I heard my room door open and then loud foot steps walk to the end of my bed. Then all of a sudden someone was crawling very fast across my bed until they got to my head and started choking me. I was trying to yell for help but then I woke my self up by grasping for air and then yelling “No”. My room door was open, and it was shut when I went to sleep.

I always felt like someone was watching me, and in the corner of my eyes I would see the black figure creeping towards me.

In November another day I was home alone. I was in the shower and heard loud footsteps again. Then all of a sudden I felt a hand grab my hair and run its hand through my hair. I step away and turn around and the shower curtain was pulled back and swinging.

Another time I was in the shower and home alone I was listening to music. It was a song I knew very well. And then I heard a deep man voice say “I’m angry”.
I jump out of the shower and played that part of the song again and it definitely wasn’t the music.

I no longer live in that house, and just found out that the women that lived in the basement apartment of the house saw the same black figure and it did the walking out from the corner thing it did to me. She has video evidence of the creepy black figure and that it actually exists. I have been trying to get a hold of her for the video, but I can’t get a hold of her or find her.”

Syncrude Twin Towers Apartment Building – Haunted Alberta Database

Location: Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada
Type: apartment building
Built: n/a

The following report was sent into our website by Caroleann on May 30, 2014:

“This story is about what happened to me roughly 8 months during the year 2007 in the Syncrude Twin Towers low rise on the 4th floor.

While I was sitting at my computer one night in my bedroom, lying on the table next to me was an empty Pepsi bottle. As I was looking into it I could see my reflection and then I could see two figures in the bottle standing on each side of me. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! They were people-like figures with black cloaks with hoods, and they just stood there. So I just laid the bottle down and ignored it went to bed scared, thinking about what I saw.

The next day I started hearing papers rattling in my closet. I just ignored it but it wouldn’t stop. I thought it was a rat or something but I went through this box, nothing but a Soloman Bible that my roommate picked up from a guy at work. So I tried to read a few words but didn’t understand the language. I put it back into the box. The next night there was a fire broke out two doors down from me. We were woken at 2am by some man knocking on our door screaming “FIRE!” I opened the door and nothing but smoke so I panicked and started crawling towards the fire. I realized I was going the wrong way so I turned around and crawled till I could see the clear and got out safely.

The apartment that the fire started in burned like a match box inside and never burned through the walls or roof, it was totally black and seemed as though it was a controlled fire. The fire burnt itself out within the apartment. By the time the fire department arrived the fire should have burned more apartments but it contained itself within this one apartment. So then we were able to go back to our apartment hours later.

The next day I came home from work and was sitting on my bed when I heard someone unlocking my door. What I saw was a big man that walked across my living room. I said to myself “Thats strange it’s only 5pm and my roommate is home. Weird cause he didn’t come home from work till 7pm.” So, I sat there listening but not a sound. I walked up to the living room and no one was there. I went back down the hallway to my room to sit and watch to see my roommate, then the same man came out my living walking towards the door. When I ran up to the door there was no one there.

Every day at five this man would unlock my door, come in and dissappear. Then every day for months at 5 o’clock this man would walk in, come down the hallway and go into my bathroom off my bedroom and shut the door. I would open the door and no one in the bathroom, so I go back to my room and lay on my bed and be startled to what I was seeing.

So as days went on this “thing” started to torment me by kicking the tub. I could hear the noise throughout the apartment all night long. I go in the bathroom, there is nothing or no one there. I came home from work the next day not feeling well. I came in, locked my door, went for a nap when a shout woke me. A security guy was standing over me telling me how he just came around the corner and my door was wide open and he just seen this black shadow leave my apartment. I was shocked and kind of spooked and left for awhile that day.

When I came back that night, I went into the bathroom and was fixing my hair in the mirror when I seen a shadow on the wall moved at the corner of my eye. It was a terrifying moment for me. It scared me and I jumped. As I was looking at my shadow I realized it wasn’t me, my hair was pinned up and my shadow had its hair down. I went and got my room mate thinking I was losing my mind, so when he came in the shadow ran across the wall. My roommate who is a large man screamed and ran out of the apartment, I ran after him.

After we were brave enough we came back in. I went to bed scared to death. I slept with the Catholic bible the whole time all this was happening.

The next day same thing again, man coming to the bathroom and closing the door again. No one there. So as I go into the bathroom I was standing by the toilet when I noticed my shadow started moving. I ran and got the mananger, two security guards, my roommate and two others standing in my bathroom watching as I stood still my shadow would slid across the wall and slid down to the floor. We all stood there with our mouths dropped, no one saying anything while I’m there asking them “Do you see it? What is it?” and one of the security guards spoke up totally in shock and said “Yes, we see it, and we don’t know what it is.” So we left the bathroom and came back in 3 times and it did the same thing each time we entered.

The next day I walked into the bathroom. As I opened the door quickly, a shadow of a little child was on my shower wall and it jumped! I scared this thing it, actually got a fright. So again I ran out of the room.

Sitting on my bed talking to my room mate this one day after the bathroom incident, and this voice came over his head saying “Hello, hello.” in a loud,clear voice. We both looked at each other and I said “Did you just hear that?” he said “Yeahhh”, I said “What did it say?” he said “hello, hello.” We both ran outside of the building again. So again after we regained our courage, we came back to our apartment and went to my room and this smell hit me. It was horrible! I never ever smelled anything like this in my life, Nothing even close. It smelled like sulfur and something that was rotten, it wasn’t of this earth. I was gagging, while my room mate was sitting there and he couldn’t smell anything. I was so confused, I opened the bedroom door and took a deep breath and came back inside the room and it was gone. All of a sudden it felt like a million wasps stinging me all over my body. It was so painful and it was just torturing me day in and day out. When I would leave the apartment building the pain would stop, and when I go back it would start again. I spent hundreds of dollars at the drug stores on pesticides and nothing worked. So I figured it wasn’t physical wasps or any other insects in the apartment.

As time went on, in the mornings I would wake up gasping for air like something was choking me and would eventually let me go before I pass out. The bee stings would not stop either. When I tried to put my hands where the stings would hit, it felt like it would go deeper and bite harder. It was a nightmare in itself. I started praying to god to help me, as I was doing this the sun casts a figure of a cross on the wall. So I kept the Catholic bible in my lap knew he was there to help me so the long days of this torture kept going. All the trips to the emergency and nothing to be found.

I forgot to mention with the first experience my arm would freeze just like if it was frozen from the inside out until I leave the apartment.

This one night I was approaching my bedroom and when I opened the door my night-stand came flying at me and everything going everywhere. So I pick up the phone and called the church. I didn’t know what to do and why this thing was attacking me like this so the priest was afraid and wouldn’t show up. He told me to pray the Our Father and pray to St. Micheal and I did. So at this point I wasn’t afraid any more and I started to get mad at this thing in my apartment, and then this horrible unearthly shriek came through my window vibrating through the tv and then went through me. I was startled by the sound so I went to go grab a drink when something inside me told me to wait. I went to the bathroom instead and went back to my bedroom instead of going to the kitchen. When I went back to my room there was a can of pepsi lying on my pillow. I picked it up and it was cold as though it came from the freezer. Now I was getting freaked out, it was bringing things to my room.

There is much more that isn’t included in the story above, but I’ll be writing all night.

Anyways the day I was moving out I was cleaning the bathroom when there was a knock at the door. It was a girl to ask me to cut her hair. I said to her “I packed and have no towels so go home, get a towel and come back.” I locked my door, went back to the bathroom and there was a brand new purple towel sitting on my sink folded. I just ran out of there with my stuff as fast as I could go. And as I was leaving the building, at that very moment, four apartments went up in flames to no known reason. Security was running through the building alerting the tenants and trying to evacuate the building. I stopped one of them and asked what happened, he said “Four apartments are burning and there is devil faces burning in the doors. This place is evil im getting the hell out of here!” (He lived in the building and moved out the same day as me).

I got out of there and never had an encounter since. Out of the 7 people who witnessed what happened in my apartment with me, 2 people survived and the strangest thing the 3 of us moved out the same day. 3 out of seven was found dead sitting up in chairs in their apartments and one went into a coma and never came out of it to my knowledge.

Also another thing I forgot to mention, after we moved out, I had one of those security guards that survived help me put pictures from my camera onto my computer. These pictures were full of images of shadows and orbs or strange light. They were in my personal folder on my computer and they were taken due to infringement and I couldn’t understand why my pictures were taken away out of a personal folder. The security guard had copies of my pictures into his own computer and the pictures were taken from him too and he would agree to be a witness to that.

Thank you for your kind attention to my story and I hope if you have had something like this happen to you, that you will share it as well.”

True Ghost Story: Gunshots From The Spirit World

Location: Fort McMurray, AlbertaCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Josh on Feb 4, 2013:

“My wife, son (18 Months old now) and I moved into an older duplex in Thickwood, Fort McMurray in the fall of 2012. My father was also living with us at the time. We always had minor “weird” things happen such at sensor light over the deck turning on when nothing is outside, or strange noises such as the stairs creaking, or bangs. But we have always contributed these to the house settling, or the bang to something not inside the house. We have always had strange feelings ever since we moved into this house. Like no matter how tight we locked the windows or doors, it always felt like someone else was there.

Recently, things have been happening more often and more clearly. Almost a month ago my wife woke up saying she heard what sounded like a gunshot, and the noise was very clear and close (inside the house or not far outside). So I got up as usual and done my tour of the house, checked on our son, looked out the window, and as always nothing was there. There are times I’m forced to do this multiple times a night. The noises are getting worse by the night. The stairs are creaking for a few seconds, then stopping as if someone is slowly walking up and down them over and over.

A few nights ago I was drifting off to sleep, half awake and half asleep, when the sound of a cupboard door slamming jarred me from my sleep. Right away I got up and done my normal tour of the house checking the kitchen, living room, bathrooms, out the windows, and my son before returning back to bed quite freaked out at this point.

Yesterday morning I awoke to do my normal routine of getting up and walking out to start mine and my wife’s trucks to allow them time to warm up, then head back to bed for 15 minutes or so while I take a short snooze. I wasn’t back in bed for 5 minutes when I heard the sound clear as day of someone lifting the lid on our washing machine and just letting it drop. Right away I got up and done my tour of the house and lets just say I never got my snooze that morning.

Yesterday evening I had been locked out of the house so I went across the alley to my landlord’s daughter to see if they had a key for the place. Upon returning the key I was chatting with her husband and told him how I believe the house may be haunted. He responded with a story of how not too long ago there was a girl that lived just up the street and used to babysit for a lot of people in the neighbourhood including the people that was living in his house at the time. I am not sure if she babysat for anyone in our home. While she was babysitting at that house she committed suicide, shot herself in the head. My landlords also own that house and they owned it at the time this happened and had came in after the fact to do some work to remove the bloodstains from the house. So I went home thinking about that yesterday evening, and went home and sat on my computer with my son on my lap. A while later one of his toys in his toy box started to make its sounds for no apparent reason and had been sitting in there for a number of hours. I got up and moved the toy, and later put my son to bed in his own room.

Later that night when my wife got home and we went to bed the stairs started creaking as usual, and then another toy started making noises from my son’s room. I got up to check on him to see if he was awake but he was out cold. The toy that was making the noise was near the bottom of his toy hamper and has been there for weeks or months now and there was nothing I could find that would of set it off in such a manner. It would make its noises then stop, then a few minutes later would start again until I did take it out of the toy hamper. I then went back to bed very freaked out and tried to get some sleep, as I now had to be up for work in 4.5 hours.

I didn’t sleep well last night hearing every creek of the stairs and every little noise…”

True Ghost Story: The Ghost That Imitates Voices

Location: Fort McMurray, AlbertaCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Samantha on Jan 12, 2012:

“Me and my family experienced many things. We believed this ghost was one that would imitate voices of friends/loved ones. My brother was in the shower, home alone. Now, he has a best friend that would always be over, they were best friends. Anyways, he was in the shower and heard his friend call his name. So he got out and checked, no one home.

Another one, my mom saw my brother’s best friend wearing her jacket walking downstairs. She looked down, seen her coat on the banister and no one home. This all happened in the middle of the day.

Me and my brother would always end up in the hallway around midnight, when we thought we heard someone running up the stairs to our rooms, we were side by side. We would go out, again no one there.

Now, this is hard to explain, but you know how if you have stairs, there is some medal bars so you can see the landing where the stairs turn? Anyways, I was home alone. My parents were at work and my brother was at a friend’s. We had a mirror in the living room, and at the right angle you can see the landing of the stairs. At that time we had a dog. Now, I was watching tv with my dog on the floor. All of a sudden she starts growling, and her hair stands up. She started barking like crazy at the mirror, and I was freaked. She finally stopped after 5 minutes of me calming her down, so I ran around and turned on all the lights.

One night, I was in bed. I just turned my tv off and turned on my fan. I laid down. Now, every now and then my brother would come into my room and take my fan. So, I seen something by my fan, about the height of my brother. So I told him to leave it. It started to pace my room and then left. I went to my brother’s room, he was playing a game, oblivious to the world. I was freaked. I went back to bed, and about 20 minutes later my light fixture fell off my lighting.

ANOTHER time, my step-dad went down a flight of stairs to our downstairs washroom. We had a big stereo where you would push the door to open, and push the door to close. Well, he seen someone crouched down clicking it open and closed. He ran upstairs.

And one last thing, I had a Gameboy and I put it down to go use the washroom. When I came back out, the volume was turned down.

And my step-dad heard me ask him to take me to the store. He replied, but I did not speak back. Turns out I was already gone for school. Creepy!”

True Ghost Story: Rock Throwing and Shaking Bed

Location: Fort McMurray, AlbertaCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Emily on December 30, 2009:

 “Okay I was 11 years old when I experienced this stuff so keep that in mind. I was in my room by myself and listening to this cd that I got for Christmas. So once I was finished listening to it and was starting it over, I heard this really LOUD banging. It was like someone was throwing rocks at the window. So I opened up my shades and looked out the window but no one was there. So I just shrugged it off and played the cd again. After I played it over 5 times, I heard this loud banging again, but this time it was from the back of my headboard to my bed. It was almost like someone was having a tantrum and pounding their fists to the ground. I turned on the light and peered behind, but there wasn’t anyone there. And when I got out of bed and walked into my closet, I swore it felt at least 5 degees colder than it used to be. So I turned off my lamp and ran out of my room as fast as I could.

I later came back and looked behind the headboard and-of course-no one was there. I checked under the bed and saw nothing, and my closet too. So I grabbed a water bottle used to keep Holy Water in that my mom kept in the closet and used the whole bottle to sprinkle it on my window, under my bed, on my bed, my walls, behind the headboard, my closet and the floor. Now I still heard someone throw rocks at my window, heard banging behind my headboards and even had it feel at least 3 degrees colder in my closet but it still wasn’t as bad as it used to be. Weird, huh?”

True Ghost Story: Green Man In the Basement

Location: Fort McMurray, AlbertaCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Lisa on May 4, 2009:

“I lived in this old house in Thickwood. My sister and I each had a room in the basement. Every night my sister would sleep with our little dog Molly. One night while getting ready for bed my dog started freaking out and backed herself into a corner. She started yelping and crying, her tail was between her legs. She finally unfroze and ran upstairs, naturally my sister and I ran to my dad. He checked things out and there seemed to be no sign of anything, and Molly was calm by then but still wouldn’t go into the basement. Later on that night my sister came and slept in my room. The next day she told me she saw a man in green walking from her room into mine. As if that wasn’t freaky enough, my boyfriend’s son came over and wouldn’t go into the basement, he said he was scared of the green man with dirt under his nails.”
