Who...(Or WHAT) Is "The Hat Man" ??
More eye-witness accounts...
I too have had my experiences with the "Shadow Man"... though for some unknown reason, he appeared in great detail to me. I have told this story to many people and they all say it's the "Shadow Man"...
Just after Christmas, I began dating a girl whom I eventually thought I was in love with. We lasted a little over a year, and when it was over... it was over. She did things that I thought would drive me to my breaking point, but somehow, I managed to keep myself together, or so I thought... The summer after she broke up with me, what friends I did manage to hold on to, would take turns watching over me. One summer night, they decided to throw a party at a friend's house. She ended up finding out about this, and decided it would be in everyone's best interest if she showed up. She was quickly removed from the situation, but regardless, I relocated myself to the isolation of the second floor of the house. I sat in this room for the rest of the night. My friends came to check on me and would eventually pass out in front of me, leaving me to sit in a circle of their "lifeless" bodies. As time passed, I began to notice someone else in the room. He stood up and seemingly glided across the floor and crouched down in front of me. He was tall and thin, dressed in victorian attire. Almost how you would expect Jack the Ripper to look. He was wrapped in a dark duster with a collarless white shirt and round rimmed glasses. His cheeks were gaunt, mutton chops outlined his face. As we sat face to face, he was trying to convince me to kill myself. When dawn came, I was still sitting on the floor, but I did not remember the man leaving. I don't remember the conversation ending. I thought it may have been a dream until one of my friends explained to me at breakfast that my voice had woken him from sleep sometime in the morning. He told me that he lay there watching me have a one-sided conversation. He said that it seemed like nothing I was saying made any sense to him, but did at the same time. I thought that this was simply a sign of my sanity finally slipping away from me, until I did some research into a "man in black" and found that other people had seen something similar to what happened to me that night.
(From "Doctor Fong's House Of Mysteries!")
I saw the hat man. This is not a lie or fabrication. I really saw this. As a child I was laying in the lower bunk of a bed I shared with my younger brother. I was about seven years old. I was looking across my room toward a foyer where the entrance to the New York apartment was located. Just beyond and down the hall was my parents' room. Across from the entrance door which had all sorts of security devices including a dead bolt various key locks, a chain, and even a steel rod that slid into a socket in the floor, was the kitchen area.
I sat there one night staring in front of the entrance,which was lit very brightly by a small night light. I stared at some tiny mice that jumped around a small bag of garbage next to the kitchen entrance or threshold.
Suddenly, it appeared. It was not a man, but some kind of entity. I mean it was totally black like a two-dimensional figure, but it did have the outline of a man wearing a derby. It carried a briefcase and a cane. It simply traversed the metal door and stood there for a moment, in plain sight. It was so black that it literally "popped-out." Then it looked around both ways. I was frozen with absolute fear. Then it walked into the kitchen and that was all.
I have been traumatized ever since.
There is something going on that no one knows about. Some claim to know, but I think they are lying. What is really remarkable is that many years went by then one day I decided to Google images and I typed "hat" and "man." I could not believe that others had witnessed similar things. I even saw a picture of it on the net.
Whatever it is, it is indeed a phenomenon. My intuition tells me that these beings are slaves of some sort, and that they work for an evil source.
I also had another experience , but with an invisible one. This other experience has led me to believe that there are some beings out there that do not have our best interest at heart. This particular one laughed at me with a very arrogant , diabolical, and condescending manner. It literally held me in a state of fear, and it seemed to feed of this fear. It had the ability to move in my dimension as an invisible force.
So as you can imagine, except for my feeble faith in God, I am perpetually afraid.
"After school in 4th grade when I was 10 years old, I went to my friend's birthday party. I got back from the birthday party at 10:00 at night. We just moved into a new house. I got out of the car and my mom was already in the door, and when I was almost at the door, that's when I realized that I forgot my backpack in the car. So, I went back to the car and opened the door, and as I opened the door I felt something cold touch my neck. I know it wasn't the air because it felt really odd. I slowly turned around and I didn't see anything. So I just went on and grabbed my backpack and went in the house.
As soon as I got into the house, I went straight to bed and fell asleep right away. Then I woke up and looked at my clock and it was 12:00 midnight. That's when I heard a thumping sound in the hallway. That's when I remembered earlier that night when I felt something touch my neck. So I got out of my bed and peeked around the hallway. I couldn't believe what I saw! I saw a black figure with two red eyes staring right at me while pulling up one of the wooden floorboards!
I was so scared that I ran straight back into my room, slammed the door shut and locked it. I ran to my bed and got in bed. Then I saw the figure come straight through the door, and it just stood in front of the closed door and stared at me! Then it slowly floated backward through the door.
In the morning, the floorboard was back into the ground. The second night was kind of like the first night. I woke up at 12:00 again, hearing the thumping sound, except I was prepared this time. I was going to see what happened if I tried to scare it away by running at it. So as soon as I heard the thumping sound, I got out of my room and peered around the hallway. I saw the figuring pulling up the floorboard again and staring at me, so I ran straight at it and it just disappeared. It never happened again and I hope it never does! This is true, I swear!"
After all these stories, is there any reason to doubt it?
