This kid witnessed the real life “It” clown. It’s pretty strange that the old man just hopped into the sewer grate and disappeared underground. We’ll never know where he went, or why he jumped inside. These kinds of real-life scares really make us wonder if there’s something else going on than meets the eye (via jdog_woof1234).
Why did this man have a floppy arm? Did it just detach itself from his body? It’s interesting that no one else was reacting to his floppy arm, and that this Reddit user seems to be the only person who saw it. This is one of those real-life scares that would make us want to turn the other way and pretend we didn’t see anything (via daryl_cary).
This is one of the saddest real-life scares on this list. The mountain biker disappeared after he crashed into the ravine, and they couldn’t find his body. It’s horrible that this Reddit user even witnessed the crash, and couldn’t do anything about it. What’s even weirder is that his body just disappeared, and they never found it (via -Economist-).
This is one of the most hilarious real-life scares out there. This Reddit user’s father’s first experience with an opossum ended up terrifying him so much that he called 911. He explained to the police that he was trapped in the parking garage with a “monster.” We can all agree that opossum’s are not monsters, but if it’s your first time seeing one, we can understand why he’d think so. We would’ve loved to see what happened when the police arrived (via TheKurosawa).
We’ve never seen a black eyed person, so we can understand that this was probably terrifying. This is one of those real-life scares that come out of a horror movie. Not only that, but the black eyed person was staring him down, and staring deep into his soul, without looking away. We would’ve been frozen with fear, too. It’s interesting that the Reddit user couldn’t find an explanation, either. We guess we’ll never really know. Maybe he was a real life demon (via RevolutonarySun5533).
It seems like this drop of blood came from the heavens. Who knows where the drop of blood actually came from, and it’s something no one will ever have an answer to. Real-life scares like this one are unexplainable. Maybe it’s better left a mystery. If they had the answer, maybe they’d wish they didn’t know. Still, it’s pretty creepy that the blood landed directly on their hand (via MagicPedestrian).
Kids always seem to have the creepiest experiences. This Reddit user shares one of their real-life scares that left them freaked out. Their parents didn’t believe them until several years later, when they showed them the small house near their own. We’re wondering how the parents didn’t know about that house, and how that creepy man was able to live in it without being spotted by anyone except the little girl (via SnooSquirrels4093).
We have so many questions after reading this post. How did the couch move? The only possible explanation is…. Ghosts? Even that doesn’t explain it. Otherwise, someone must have broken into their house, moved the couch, and left. Which still doesn’t make much sense. These kinds of unexplainable real-life scares will never have an answer. Maybe it’s better left unknown, considering the answer might be pretty creepy (via timothyslimothy).
There has to be some sort of medical explanation for this, otherwise, this is one of those real-life scares that would make us second guess reality. Where did that entire hour go? Why did he think only 20 seconds passed? If we were that kid, we’d go to the doctor and get checked out. Hopefully it was a one time thing and never happened again (via ionlywanttheneck).
This has to be a ghost, right? It’s a similar experience to the Reddit user who saw a cowboy dressed in all white at a graveyard. This is one of those real-life scares that makes us truly believe in ghosts and the supernatural. If it was a person dressed as a man from the 1800s, then we have even more questions. Either way, it’s just plain weird (via kickingtv).
We’re all wondering who the dad saw. He either hallucinated, mistook a random stranger for his son, or saw a ghost. We’ll never have the answers to these kinds of real-life scares. Honestly, if this happened to us, we’d feel a bit less comfortable wandering around our house, wondering who that person was (via Go_Ask_Alyss).
This is one of the strangest real-life scares on this list. Where did the tooth come from, and why did it appear on their kitchen counter? There’s no way it could have just materialized from thin air. There has to be some sort of explanation. Once again, it’s a question we’ll never have the answer to (via Ultimator4).
