My Basement is Evil

Every time I turn off all the lights in my basement I run like hell up the stairs. I think the guy from The Shining will come out of my boiler room screaming and swinging an axe at me. WTF is wrong with me????

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

    • I'll tell you why my basement is evil. It is much more terrifying than the shining. Here is why, I'm 37, unemployed and live in one that is owned by my brother in law and my sister. It's not really a room just a space with a mattress and a lot shit scattered everywhere. Every morning I am woken up by people walking and their kids jumping on the floor directly above my head. There are also fucking dogs. All hope is lost. So don't complain about made up shit.

    • I exorcised my own house after my son kept having nightmares night after night for two years. I held a crucifix in my hand and went around the whole house asking in the name of God and Jesus christ that all negativity be disolved from my house immediately. As I was walking up the stairs my legs felt like led and I was breathless but I continued.... went into my son's room and said the same thing. After that my son started to sleep really well and now doesn't and the house feels nice.

  • Every time i run up the stairs i slam the door shut cause i think that if i look back down the dark stairs somebody will coming crawling up or some chick will be all cut up and grab me then drag me down the stairs..i know EXACTLY how you feel. Pretty normal.

  • For some reason the lights are my hero. Once they die... I'm next.

    Or that's what my brain thinks. I think it's an instinctual thing.

    Comment Hidden ( show )
  • Yes, I have that problem too. Fear is a natural instinct when confronted with the unknown. I have similar problems with bathrooms, and any place dark and/or quiet. Another thing that can cause fear such as this is the fact that basements are usually filled with electric equipment and, being surrounded by earth, are electrically grounded. This causes large electromagnetic fields. EMFs have been shown to generate a feeling similar to fear in people. It's perfectly normal.

  • To me this is normal. I get that same panicky feeling while in the shower if I have my eyes closed for too long. I start to think someone is in the room with me and I cant wash the soap off my face fast enough.

  • My dog has to come with me to the basement otherwise I'm scared that cockroaches are going to smother me. Idk why it helps though, because my dog has somehow picked up my phobia, and now she runs from cockroaches -_-

  • Me too or when I come out the bathroom I to my bed jump up because someone under the bed might grab my ankles.. Also o don't let my feet hang off the bed, my pillows can't have space between them either becuz I think someone may be reaching up to grab me. Also my bed must be against the wall so I don't have to worry about someone coming between the cracks. Weird I know. But I know a lot of people who do this.... Am I alone?

  • I have had the same problem my entire life. I would consider this normal.
    My bedroom was in the basement for 13 years. Every time that I would leave my room I would book it to the stairs envisioning a hand with a very stretchy arm reaching around corners to come after me and pull me into the depths of oblivion.
    Then it was a mistake to watch the original Amytiville Horror. Whatever you do, don't watch that movie.

  • Part of it..if you feel like you're being WATCHED is that high levels of electromagnatism affects your brain waves and you have that feeling of being watched. This commonly happens in areas like basements or attics because of the electric. ACCORDING TO TAPS.

Our basement is very dark it has lots of things in it so I think they are like monsters or ghosts or something. Once when I was playing the piano the power went off I screamed like very loud my voice was so high that my parents couldn't here me. So dude you are a 10000000%% normal even more than normal.

  • It's just a phobia I used to think death (yes death, Robe scythe the lot) was after me in my basement (but only when the lights were off). Spend some time there, alone or with a friend (one you trust and can be told why you're doing this), Then start spending longer and longer intervals there. Soon the fears should subside. At least as long as the guy from the shining isn't actually there hiding in your boiler.
    Me? I like the quiet solitude down in my basement now even more so when it's dark.

  • Chucky the doll for me. (basement)

    Dolls are not my friend. If I had one in my presence and I wanted to sleep I had to place it where I could lock it away. They are creepy and were totally not necessary as a child. Being a hollow, ceramic representation of a human being it was as if they were after my soul and sucking the life force out of me...

  • Very normal. I was always freaked out by the cellar too. There was a light right above the stairs that you could turn on from the kitchen, but to go into the room where the laundry facilities were, you had to walk through the dark to yank the lightbulb chain that was on the far side of the room. Took me only seconds to get there, but I hated it. I spent a lot of time in the cellar doing laundry or working on projects, but I never really warmed up to the place. And I'd run like hell up the stairs too, once I was finished down there. Even the cats would RUN up the stairs after being down there! When cats do something like that, it makes you think! Even today, I still dream about being down there and feeling spooked.

When I was with my friends, at a sleepover, one of them said to cover up the window because a creepy face is gonna pop up. One of the other girls was SLEEPWALKING and I woke up and she was right by my bed. That was one creepy night.

I'm also really scared of this wardrobe in the spare bedroom of my house. There are tons of stuffed animals and I'm kinda scared that they are watching me if I sleep in there... And, when I was like 10, I had this toy poodle from Hamilys amd its was in the top shelf of my wardrobe and the door was open. It looked like it was watching me. I made my mum give it to charity. I'm still bothered that it might jump through my window and kill me... Damn that was creepy...

  • My ex and I used to live in a duplex in Indiana, that had a basement that was creepy as hell. Our bedroom was on the top floor. At night, we would hear things in the living room being knocked over, and sounds that literally made me think that someone had broken in. I actually went downstairs, on more than one occasion, with my gun, to run whoever it was out of our place. One night, we were laying in bed, in the dark, and I heard footsteps coming up our stairs. Then, our bedroom door, that was closed, opened up, and I could hear the sound of shuffling feet in our bedroom, in the pitch black. At this point, I decided to ask our landlord if she knew if anything strange had happened with the tenant who had lived there, last. She said that, after they had moved out, she found out that they had been having some sort of "church services" down in the creepy ass basement. I went down to the basement, to look around. I couldn't find anything strange, but right as I was about to walk back up the stairs, I noticed a strange black object, on a clothes pin, fastened to a nail on the stairs. I took it off, and threw it away. Never heard another thing, the whole time we lived there. True story....

And I can work on a two-stroke generator engine I got from a friend of my grandfathers. (My mum says I should get rid of it, but I plan on putting that thing in a massive RC car! in the future...)

  • I live in the basement with the ghost of an old widow. we get along well enough, but there is one issue. If she doesn't like the music on the radio or what I'm watching on tv, she'll tap my shoulder twice. If I don't respond, she'll turn off the radio/tv.

  • This is my first night at the new house and my room is in the basement. It has multiple light switches and i jave to walk into dark areas to turn them on! I go past 2 dark rooms into a big open room with really high windows then down a narrow hallway past 2 closets and the utility/boiler room. I never thought a finished basement could be so creepy!!! My bedroom is right across the hall from the utility room

  • I have a feeling this is a pretty normal fear. It's probably related to a very common fear: The fear of the dark.

    Comment Hidden ( show )
  • Most the time if you have a weird feeling someone is in your room at night or hiding in your basement to kill everyone, it's usually true. You should never ignore your gut feelings because they may save you from getting an axe in the forehead or your genitals mutilated by some deranged psychopath who likes to hang them up in his attic and name them things like "Bill" or " Gordy."

  • Lol this is hilarious!!

    Comment Hidden ( show )
  • Often times, the basement has this effect on both kids and adults. It's a natural fear that's either been fine tuned by scary circumstances like scary movies or just because it's the basement. It's often the most unique part of the house in terms of everything lol. It's usually darker, built into the ground, colder in temperature, dirtier; in short, the opposite of your nicer and more comfortable safe haven just a short run up the stairs. haha. Now if you install more lights and windows down there and clean it up and keep it clean, even start adding furniture and a game room down there...the feeling may actually do a complete turn around heh.

  • Totally cool
    My shower room is downstairs and our basement has some small windows, real small, that let the moonlight in and make it even scarier... Yeah, it's normal. After I come out of the shower I run like crazy after turning off the light... And yes, there's only one dim light that is fucked up most of the times and blinks... So it's a lot like a Silent Hill location...

  • Lol. Stripper pole in my basement and its just as original as any other basement. Concrete floor, concrete walls or whatever they are made of. All gray. I gotta say, the fear was invigorating and I used to indulge in that alone, in sitting in the dark of my basement. Then we decided to indulge some more by adding the toking, scary movies, and personal strip shows lol. I heart basements <3

  • The guy from the Shining was in like a huge mansion, with a hedge maze. Probably not where you live. However, wasn't there something about Freddy Kruger being around a basement boiler room or something?

    I know I'm not helping, but if your going to be frightened of a horror film figure, at least have it be the right one.

  • I'm the same too. I don't have a basement thank God, but I have been freaked out by different areas around the places I lived. I once had a phobia of our bathroom - it was an en suite and I could see directly into it from my bed at night, so I had to close the doors, otherwise I couldn't sleep. I think it's normal, but then again, just maybe it's our esp alerting us to strange things beyond explanation... I dunno, I'm skeptical, but I also sit on the fence sometimes. I think maybe we might be picking up on different energy patterns that cause our instincts to kick in and we experience the fight or flight thing. Must be something like that. I still get freaked out sometimes. The last time was in my kids room. I got the heck out of there and the hairs on my neck were bristling. Afterwards I feel like a total dick!

        ...i know this post is a little old but i use to have the same problem when i was little, as soon as the light went off i'd run like hell too... its because it's dark and you can't see anything and the basement does feel "paranormal"... so you run...

        very normal... you'll get over it trust me... if you haven't already
