She and her boyfriend were looking at her travel photos later on. They noticed what seemed to be another man acting as a lookout while the one who approached her had been following her for quite some time. Maybe it was only a coincidence, but she trusted her instincts and managed to avoid being kidnapped. Scary close call. Old theaters always seem to be haunted. These kids decided to play with a Ouija board always a bad ideaonly to hear a voice and footsteps behind them and not see anyone there.
We also want to note that at least this particular ghost only wants to prank students and not kill them like the spirits in so many horror movies are wont to do.

Without nepotism, the world would have never known the brilliant acting career of Jaden Smith, the enduring wit and music of Paris Hilton, or the oiled-up butthole of Kim Kardashian. It's an understood tradition for powerful people to find jobs for their relatives, no matter how inappropriate the work might be. However, there are certain jobs that are too inappropriate, such as hiring your cousin to be topless in your new movie or getting your son to stand in on one of your fashion shoots while you grind your butt into his crotch.
Any discussion of creepy nepotism in pop culture has to start with legendary wrestling promoter, failed football promoterand legendarily failed bodybuilding promoter Vince McMahon, who would no doubt want at least one of those three achievements carved into his headstone for all eternity.
McMahon has been casting his family members in prominent roles in the WWE for decades, and he selects each role with the surgical precision of a drunken shotgun blast. To be fair, it's not like Vince has singled out his daughter for this kind of treatment -- he also got his son, Shane, a job as a pro wrestler, despite the fact that Shane has the physical prowess of the Pillsbury Doughboy, and immediately spent every subsequent pay-per-view event trying to kill him.
A typical Shane McMahon wrestling match involved the prince of the McMahon empire getting mutilated beyond belief in what looked more like a garbage truck collision than an athletic competition. Shane has been beaten with sticks, dropped off steel cages, thrown through panes of glass, and occasionally a Yahtzee-like combination of the three:. Being turned into a sex object or a cripple on national TV by your father would be a low point for any child, yet those aren't the worst things his family has had to endure.
Not even close. Luckily, her time in the WWE had adequately prepared her for public humiliation. The story begins perhaps the only way it could, with Vince publicly admitting to cheating on Linda in a Howard Stern interview.
This gave him the novel idea to write a big wrestling storyline wherein he cheats on his wife with WWE Diva and ludicrously attractive fitness model Trish Stratus. This is another way of saying that Vince scripted a series of televised events in which he got to ferociously make out with a supermodel in front of his wife, who in the storyline was in a coma. Vince heroically continued this storyline through the s and well into the s, making sure he never missed out on a chance to grope and tongue kiss the WWE's most attractive young women right in front of his wife on national television.

To make matters worse, his marketing team, in fonts too ugly for an apartment community newsletter, complemented images of his little girl's barely covered body with suggestive slogans, like "What's in Demand Today" and "Where the Action Is," which, in retrospect, seems more like a question.

Paranormal-addict that I am, this is obviously an important perk of having access to the the world wide web — and if you're right there with me, then prepare yourself for some gleefully terrifying reads.
These babies all have the potential to keep you up all night with paranoia — which is, of course, always the goal. From Ouija boards to ghosts appearing in mirrors, countless people throughout history and today! Given that Reddit allows anyone to share their thoughts, you can find hoards of terrifying and allegedly-true tales about paranormal experiences from people all over the world that will give you shivers.
And if ghostly fiction is your thing, there are many threads where talented horror writers share their creative scary stories, as well.

And for the record, if you spook easily, I recommended reading these with the lights on. I've had my own unexplained experiences with Ouija boards, so this allegedly true story sent straight-up chills down my spine.
According to the story, a group of high school kids met up around Halloween to play with a Ouija board and see if it would actually work. Unfortunately, it worked too well, and almost everyone involved apparently ended up having some deeply disturbing and in some cases, near-deadly experiences that are still fully unexplained.
Were they a result of a ghost sent through the Ouija board? You'll have to ready the story in full to decide for yourself. In this hauntingly creepy tale, the ghostly presence of dead family members appear to live on in the form of stuffed animals — which, if you didn't already have enough reason to be terrified of your childhood toys, could certainly cause you to hide away your precious plushies.
But in a bone-chilling plot twist, it turns out that perhaps the ghosts are the least of the narrator's worries. Read for the full creepy tale. Ever heard of a ghost light? Apparently some people believe that keeping a particular light on at all times can keep the spirits of the dead from entering our realm.

Countless stories are told about the Grim Reaper, or the ghostly being who allegedly ushers you to your death. In this spine-tingling tale, the narrator has a haunting encounter with the Grim Reaper himself, and with vivid descriptions, we get an idea of what such an encounter might feel like — but it's not what you'd think.
Get ready for an existential, brain-twisting ending on top of the scare.
