    11 People Share Their Most Bizarre Experience That They Never Found An Explanation For

    There's nothing creepier than something you can't explain.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share creepy moments they've experienced that they never found an explanation for. Here were the eerie results!

    1. That's not your mom.

    When I was about 8 years old, I woke up in the middle of the night feeling really uncomfortable and I just couldn't figure out why. It was this weird cold feeling in my bones, but I just thought I was sick or something. Then, I heard weird noises coming from the living room, so I looked and saw my mom's knitting supplies falling from the table one by one, and a figure standing in the middle of the room.

    It was pretty dark, but for some reason I thought the figure was my mom. I called out for her, but I just felt the figure staring at me for a moment before it began walking away. Still thinking it was my mom, I followed it into our kitchen. The figure was sitting down, so I sat next to it, only to immediately realize it wasn't my mom. The figure vanished and I was left there alone. I was so scared that I couldn't move, and my parents found me crying in the kitchen. This still gives me chills.


    2. The curious shadow.

    I was trying to fall asleep, when I saw what looked like the headlights of a car track across the wall (opposite my room's windows). The light moved from one side of the wall to the other, but instead of disappearing as if the car had passed, it remained there, revealing the silhouette of a person. I froze and stared at it for a while, waiting for it to go away. Eventually I got up the courage to look out of the window, but there was nothing there that could cast that kind of shadow. I turned back and the silhouette was still there.

    I just laid there trying to figure it out for several minutes, then I heard what sounded like a car approaching again, and its headlights swept across my wall again, same as before, only this time the silhouette and remaining light disappeared. It was very disturbing and strange.


    3. What'd the baby see?

    My little brother was just learning how to crawl and we lived in a one story house that had a long hallway from the rooms to the kitchen. My brother was in my parents's room with the door open and they were all watching TV, when he decided to crawl off to the kitchen. I chased after him, and as I picked him up he was giggling, but when I started walking towards the hallway he stopped, put on the straightest face I've ever seen, and death stared at something behind me. I was terrified by his reaction but didn't turn around. I just booked it to my parents room. It still creeps me out till this day.


    4. The empty room whistler.

    I teach at a super old school that was built in the '50s. I was in my classroom really late one night finishing up paperwork, and the doors connecting my room to my neighbor's classroom were open. I was whistling, when I stopped in the middle of a well known song, "Ride of the Valkyries," to take a drink. Someone (or something) finished whistling the song for me! It sounded like it came from the room next door, but NOBODY ELSE was in my part of the building! I got out of there fast and avoided being in my neighbor's room by myself from then on.

    I found out later in the year that the night custodian does my side of the building first because my neighbor's room creeps him out, and he wants to finish it before it gets dark.


    5. The mysterious, helpful voice.

    I worked a night shift when I was 18, and one night I was driving home at around 3 a.m. I stopped at the red light at a dark, T intersection in a rural area. Just as the light turned green, I heard a very loud voice say, "DON'T GO." I didn't so much hear the voice, as I felt it in every fiber of my being. It was the loudest thing I've ever heard. As I was trying to figure out what I heard/felt, I stayed at the light. Suddenly, a car with no headlights on shot through the intersection at an extremely high speed. If I'd pulled out, that car would have t-boned me and possibly killed both myself and whoever was driving it. 15 years later, it still gives me chills to think about.


    6. The smiling woman by the tub.

    When I was 6, my family took a vacation to the Hotel Del Coronado in California. During the trip I came down with Chicken Pox, and my mom had me soak in the bathtub to try to relieve the itching. Room service came to the door to deliver lunch, so my mom went to go get it, and while I was in the tub a woman came and sat with me. She didn't speak, she just smiled at me. My mom called me over to eat, and I said goodbye to the woman.

    My mom asked me who I said goodbye to, and I told her it was a nice woman in a white dress who came to watch me after she'd left. We always chalked that up to hallucinations from the Chicken Pox, but I saw a special on the Travel Channel about haunted hotels and Hotel Del Coronado was on it. Now, I believe the woman I saw was Kate Morgan.


    7. Goodnight, wake up.

    One time as a kid, I got in bed and laid down, but as soon as I closed my eyes I saw a bright light. When I opened my eyes, it was the morning. The sun was up and it was 9 a.m. It felt like no time had gone by but I was rested. My mom and dad were up and acting normal. I never said anything because they would've just told me it was a dream, but I'm pretty sure I time traveled a few hours.


    8. "I just saw you."

    I was driving home from work, turning left onto my street and I passed by my parents. I tried to get their attention, but had no luck. They were in our silver CRV, my dad was wearing his beanie as usual, and my mom was looking down at her phone. I pulled into my driveway and called my mom to see where they were heading. She said, "We're almost home, why?" I replied, "But I just saw you drive past me! I saw your faces, the car, the license plate!"

    I thought they were playing a joke on me, but they arrived to the house about two minutes after I got off the phone with them and they had tons of groceries. I can still picture my parents turning right in front of me in my head, and it still freaks me out.

    9. "Come in."

    A few years ago I was at my dad's house and some of his friends were over sitting in the living room. At one point I went to the bathroom, but I knocked first because we had guests. I heard the words, "Come in," whispered in a child's voice, but there were no other kids in the house besides me. It's also weird that I heard the words in English, but I'm Greek. I walked in and nobody else was in the bathroom, but the lights were on. To this day, I still don't know what happened or why the heck I walked into a bathroom after a creepy voice told me to "come in."


    10. Someone walked into the room.

    When I was in high school, I had just gotten home and walked through the front door. As I entered, I saw someone walk from my sister's room into my room, so I yelled, "Whoever is in my room better get out right now!" A few minutes went by and nobody left my room, so I decide to walk back there and investigate. There was nobody back there, so I was completely alone in the house.

    This really freaked me out because even now, over a dozen years later, I distinctly remember seeing a girl with a long brown ponytail, dark shorts, a white shirt, and white socks walk across that hallway.


    11. The out-of-body experience.

    In 2008, I was in a car accident that ended my life. I literally died, but the paramedics revived me. I was the passenger in my then boyfriend's truck, when he pulled out in front of someone who was going about 75 MPH. While I was gone, I distinctly remember watching myself from another point of view, getting into his truck, pulling out of the driveway, and driving down the street. That's 10 years ago, and I still remember every detail of what I saw. If I was dead, how could I have that vision? I'm still shook by it to this day.
