    I have seen the hat man one time. I am just now finding out that this is a common entity people have been seeing. About a year ago my boyfriend and a buddy of mine were at my house. My buddy left around 11 or so. The side door next to my room is hard to shut just right. Basically only myself and my family know how to close this door properly. My mom woke me up in the middle of the night screaming that the door was wide open. She was very angry closed the door and went back in her room. I drifted back off to sleep. I woke up shortly after terrified. I felt something was not right. I tried to nudge my boyfriend without making sudden movements but he would not wake up. At the foot of my bed was the hat man. A very tall black shadow figure with a hat of course. He just stood there staring at me. I stared back at him unable to move or even blink. He may of stood there for a few minutes. He smiled at me, kinda snickered and disappeared… but I could not see his face he was only a silhouette. Somehow I knew he smiled at me and I could see it. Kind of hard to explain. After he left my room I had this feeling that he took something from me. I don’t know what it was but the feeling was extremely over whelming. Not physically but he definitely took something from me. I think that the door being open in the middle of the night may have invited him in. I have not seen him since that night.

    I would like to tell you I too saw the hat man, mine was wearing a cowboy hat. I was standing on a bridge in one of our favorite camp grounds. the bridge is at the end of a river going into a man made lake. I was standing on the bridge thinking it was dangerous as the day was cold over cast and had been raining hard for the previous days and water was running under the bridge and pushing hard on the cement pilings under me. this was a bridge that log truck and campers use not side rails and one lane. I was thinking it was a waste of power as you could just see the power in the water swirling. I was with my husband and one other couple but at the time I was behind them just standing on this roadway. For some reason I looked over my shoulder and saw this dark shadow standing there with a cowboy looking hat on, He was about six feet tall or better and just a human form. as I looked at it you could see it gather to run and hit me. I thought, shit it is going to push me over when it slams into me an there is nothing I can do. so I turned back around and braced for the impact that never came. I was shock and relived that I did not feel a jolt or impact and got off the bridge in fact I felt nothing like it wasn’t there. Thinking that was over I did not say anything to anyone but my husband and then only later after I thought it over. I did not want any one to think I was crazy and seeing thing, about two weeks later I was reading in bed it was still day light out and I looked up and the shadow person walked through my bedroom door and toward the window. as it walked into the room the shadow serrated as it walked, it looked straight ahead and walked 2/3’s the way into my room and disappeared. I have not seen it since.

    When my grandpa died in February 1960 my mom related a paranormal story that included the hat man. I was a 6 month old baby. A few hours after he died, it was getting dark outside and it had just snowed a lot. At this time my dad told my mom something was telling him he just had to get out of the house. She begged him to stay but he wouldn’t. So my mom began doing laundry. When she was putting the towels away in the linen closet she asked God why her dad died that day. As soon as she asked this her First Holy Communion book fell from the top shelf onto the ground, opened to a page that showed a picture of Jesus’ crucifixion and the page next to it said: Why We Must Die. She was shocked because she wasn’t expecting something like that to happen and also hadn’t seen the book since she was 7 or 8 and she was now 38. Right after this she heard something in the kitchen and when she got there, there was a black cat drenched soaking wet on the kitchen table hissing, growling and spitting at her. She opened the back door there and it ran out.
    She was very freaked out now and panicking so she went to the front door to see if my dad was coming home yet and she watched this man walking towards our house on the sidewalk. He was wearing a Fedora hat and long trench coat. When he got to our house he stopped and turned and just stared at her through the small glass window on the door.
    He wasn’t a shadow person but she knew somehow he wasn’t human and he was pure evil. It scared her so bad she quickly looked away for a second then looked back but he was gone. She knew a person couldn’t have ran that fast to disappear so quickly, even if there hadn’t been all the snow.
    Unfortunately this is just a mere fragment of what my family had had to live with all theses years, no matter where we move to, no matter if it’s an old house, new house, apartment, condo or even when we visit friends out of state. The paranormal has plagued us before I was ever born right up to now with just about everything under the sun. It really pisses me off because 99% of it is evil in nature. Ignoring it helps but it always creeps back.

    I taught my kids because my oldest has always seen him. I saw an undertaker in a black top hat driving a hearse. My friend saw him too. He was such a freak! He turned in to where my cousins lived from the road and disappeared. Two of my cousins that lived there died later. Creepy things

    I spent all day at work feeling out of sorts like I wasn’t connected to my body. The best way I can describe it would be like when your dreaming and you’re looking out of someone else’s eyes and you know they’re not yours.

    Three of my friends had stayed over at my studio apartment. When we finally past out I was in the center of the bed with a person on either side. My third friend fell asleep on the couch on the other side of the room.

    The man in the hat bent over my friend and woke me up. I sat up in bad and rested my back against the wall. At no point did I feel unsafe or as if he was there to hurt me, the exact opposite actually.

    We talked for hours an I was under the impression from the outline of his cloths that he wasn’t from our time… but he also didn’t seem to be dead. He was what i can only describe as phased out kind of a blur, like I was wearing the wrong prescription of glasses but only while looking at him. Before I woke up he repeated to me several times that it was super important that I remember EVERYTHING he had told me.

    In the morning my friend on the couch asked why myself and Scott weren’t tired. We both looked at her puzzled to which she replied…
    “You guys were up all night whispering. I had sleep paralysis and couldn’t move but I could see Scott sitting in the chair next to your bed with a hat on.”
    Scott tells her he was asleep that it wasn’t him. I immediately pipe up…
    “I thought I dreamt that… did you hear what we were talking about?”

    Unfortunately she didn’t and after she thought about it from the way he was dressed admitted it couldn’t have been Scott.
    I’m still not afraid of my experience. I wish I could remember everything the man in the hat said. He stressed how important it was that I remember everything.
    Has anyone else had an experience similar?

    I first had seen a man in black, but my one is partly different. I could his face and full items he was wearing, i still see him every night in my dreams and in life within the day. My one is a white man with a long jacket and hat what is flat but you can tell it is some sort of top hat, he has white shirt on with a black tie with a scare on his right side of his face.

    ive been ever to get answers but no one and i mean No one can tell me who he is, when i ask people who should know they just turn and tell me with fright in there eyes that they can not tell me they dont wish to tell.

    It started when i was three year old, he came into my dream and took me places i never been, he was doing this on a nightly bases, when i hit 19 / 20 he started coming in to real life just standing there then when i got close to him, he moved. The places he took me i moved to, i never know the place but will all ways remember the area, he took me to homes where i moved to. at the end of my dream he takes me to this cliff edge, he points out to sea, i can remember every thing about it but he never talked.

    He points out to sea and rises his right arm to me and that point i wake up, i even stopped in the street and he took me right to the cliffs edge i come round fast. i dont dare see what he wants me to do, i see him as being part of my life.

    He lets this feeling of that he not going to hurt me but i dont want to risk it. he seems to be one of them people that needs help. but i dont know what to do. he came to bottom of my bed but i dont see his face, but i can tell it is him.

    If any one can help in telling me who he is then that will be great, as that i try to get in to a place to get help i also get told to go right away, i dont know what it is but no one dose not want me to be near them.no one wants to tell me what it is.

    So yer if you know please let me know
