The Dark Man, The Shadow Man or The Hat Man has been part of my mother's and my lives for as far back as I can remember. I first sensed him in my mother's bedroom [left side of the house above] when I was a child. Here I describe the various appearances of 'The Shadow Man' over a number of years and I will attempt to describe his characteristics and behaviours. Rose Street, Liverpool - This is the 3 bedroom brick house in Sydney's outer western suburbs where I grew up in the late 60s and 70s. From the outside it looked just like another ordinary Neta display home. But once inside, one could sense this 'dark' all pervading atmosphere of dread that seemed to permeate the rooms as presence. It was only after I called my first writing Fear of the Home and when I read a book by William Hope Hodgison that gave a graphic description of a 'terrible house of silence' that I realised how afraid of this place both I (and my younger brothers) had been.While I deeply loved my childhood house, there was this tangible heavy psychic atmosphere that was felt by visitors. Firstly, the house was built directly over the main underground sewerage pipe for the area that cut straight through the centre of the loungeroom. My parents received a discount on the land as a result. In addition this the domestic violence that occurred created an interactive web of negative emotions, fear, powerlessness and despair. All family members suffered from vivid reoccurring nightmares yelling out from their sleep, often with bedclothes found strewn around the room. My nightmares ceased 25 years after leaving the house.When 'The Shadow Man' first manifested, it was primarily around my mother. My two younger brother's sensed it, but it was only my mother and I who ever experienced him physically. My mother is prone to hynogogic episodes. Some of them had involved a dark creepy male presence who visited her in her bedroom. This occurred after she had switched off the light and often while she was still awake. She would feel 'him' pressing down on the end of her bed as if the mattress was being pushed down by an invisible force, or him pressing on her legs through the bedclothes.Reilly Street, Liverpool: When I.

Seconds later, Marianne was hit on the head by their son’s toy dog. She sat bolt upright in bed with a bemused look in her eyes. The cuddly toy was clearly aimed at he...

Ghost-hunting skeptics

When Carol Copeland started renovating her World War II-era Stockton home a year ago, things started to happen that were unexplainable, she said. At first, when she came home to find an empty shelf ripped out of her bedroom wall, she blamed it on faulty carpentry. When she heard the sound of footsteps and her name being called aloud, she brushed it off. But when she watched as a shot glass collection flew off a shelf in her living room, she said, there was no denying it anymore. “I always said I...

Something strange in the neighborhood? Call ghost hunters

A sliver of a moon illuminates gravestones and a motley group treading slowly over fresh-cut grass. It has been several hours since the search began. Suddenly, the thermal gauge, held in the palm of one member's hand, registers a steady temperature drop: from 67, to 54, then 42 -- and finally to 34 degrees. "It's colder here," the member reports. Just then, the lights on the electromagnetic field detector begin flashing, drawing the group deeper into the grounds. The gr...
