I lived in a house when i was 7 years old.Me and my little sister slept in the room upstairs,in our room there were stairs leading to the attic.I was in my bed tucked tight while my little sister was sleeping.Then i looked over by the stairs in the dark spot and i suddenly saw some red bright glowing eyes looking at me.I knew i wasnt imagining it either cause i was wide awake and when we first moved in,the owners said that someone died in that house but of course i was a kid i didnt pay attention to what they said.Do you find this creepy?

Look..... i'm not trying to say anybody here is a liar or delusional...but i have so many scary shit happen to me and my family in my life..that i figured id tell 1 of my experience with relation to this...

my older brother cousin and I were at the time 6,8,and 11 years old when this happened... we all wanted to sleep in my parents living room. anyways at about 3am local time we all heard our piano started to play by itself and we all had made a little tent and we all asked with our eyes closed "whos playing the piano your gonna get us in trouble" and we all said none of us were....and yet it was playing 15 feet from us... we all got scared....and then my older cuzin said that we should just go to our room and sleep there. anyways....the moment we threw the blankets off we all saw the same things standing about 15 feet from us... two figures with glowing eyes...and we all were so scared that we didnt want to go wake the parents up but just run straight to the bedroom and lock the door... so ya....call it what you want...but for us 3 to see the same exact thing and hear the same exact thing.....you tell me the odds....

I know how crazy this all sounds, but I would like to comment on this particular discussion.

I am 37 years old and I am very open minded about things. I take no meds of any kind and have never had any issues with anything like this before, that is until recently.

About two months ago, at around ten P.M. I was wide awake in my living room. I stood up from the couch to stretch. Behind that couch lies a huge bay window facing a neighbor's house. There are no lights whatsoever between the two homes. That house at the time was empty. In any case, as I stretched; I saw two very red eyes staring at me through that window, not even a blink. I looked away thinking I was just seeing things, but it was still there. Everything about being a human ceast to exist in that moment. I couldn't move, breathe, or scream. Finally, I looked away again for about ten seconds and it was gone. I have never seen this before that night. Never even heard of it before, but again, two nights ago. It happened again.

What do I make of it? I couldn't say really. Both times, I was wide awake. It really does give you that creepy crawly feeling for sure. I was curious after the second time and decided tonight to just tinker online about it and found this site. I'm still not sure what to make of it, but as everyone else here. I would love to know about the unknown more so than ever before.

Many here have mentioned this happening at bedtime and as a young child. Anyone have anything to comment on this one, because I know I would love to hear it.

Thanks D

My wife is 34 yrs old and I am 45, anyway, I couldn't sleep and was still in the living room with the lights out, and my wife was sleeping in the bedroom, when suddenly she came out of the bedroom really scared and was telling me that she woke up and looked towards the bathroom and she saw red glowing eyes and got really scared because she felt something evil about them, she got out of the bedroom as fast as she can. She fell asleep in the living room with me. What are these things?? Can anyone tell me what they are? I scattered holy water all over the house that day, and spread blessed salts. You should do the same.

I can't say for sure. I can only tell you that I had many encounters of this nature as a small child. I still get anxiety thinking about it. The red eyes are evil. Even if you are a strong Christian and have faith, evil still exists and will find you. There's no way to know for sure why this entity was present in your home specifically. Your wife can expect to see this again somewhere. It's terrifying, but an entity (be it spirit or demon) can follow you. I learned years ago to not sleep with the curtains open, the closet door open, or the bedroom/bathroom door open. I always have some light in my house because I have never seen red eyes in anything but darkness. It may sound crazy, but I believe that heaven and hell exist on earth. Think of it as the matrix. Multiple dimensions where sometimes we see into another world. I have seen, heard, and felt so many things in life. It's hard to turn it off once the door is open. Once you have an experience, the belief and the fear overcomes you. Don't be afraid. Don't let it consume your/her life. If you think it will help, have a priest bless your home. I used to see red eyes outside my home, so I can't imagine how you feel. Make it known that you are Christians and that it is not welcome in your home. Even if you feel ridiculous shouting this throughout your house. Evil feeds off negative energy. If you and your wife disagree, do not yell and say hurtful things (which you shouldn't do anyway). This is when the presence can and will make itself known. I don't know what else to say because there are no easy answers for this. Let your wife know that she is not alone. I have felt hunted by these eyes; like whatever it is saw something it wanted in me. I always kept/keep my heart pure and I have a great relationship with God. That has helped. I will pray for you.

It happened to me when I was a about 8 years old in the evening between 7 and 8pm the whole family was in living room watching TV. I had to go for a short call when I got there, there was a large red eye the staring at me through the bathroom window which was about a square foot and a half squared. The eye which was the size of a persons head literally filled the window stared at me the whole time I was there without blinking even once any time I looked at it.
When I walked in the room and saw its size staring at me, I was scared. I couldn't stare back at it and every time I looked up, the eye was staring at me. It was scary. I couldn't finish my business and when I finally could move, I rushed out of the room. I didn't even switch off the light. My cousin went in immediately after I left and when I asked them, they said they hadn't seen anything there. I was too scared to go back in there.

You people have to learn to believe it but deamons and dead spirits are real. I have seen them on countless occasions, most spirits dont intend to harm anyone but the like playing games w/ people. Demons are those figures that countless people have explained w/ the red eyes, and unfortunatly they want you dead. If you still dont believe go to the cemetary at 3AM in the morning and i garuntee you will change your mind. If you stay with god then you are pretty much safe from these wondering souls

If you know you saw it I believe you, I was search for red eyes on the internet to see if there is any history behind seeing them. I've been watching ghost adventures lately and am really interested to illuminate my past. My story... I was 10 or 11, I lived in a house that had was a former home for the mentally ill.. my room was one of the back three down a long hall way that came to a T and mine was the one on the right... we moved in when I was 6 and felt creepy as hell every moment I spent in this back wing... I slept with my bed facing down the hall and a 100 watt light burning in the closet, often sleeping with my eyes open. I would come out of the room and feel something at the door way hovering over my shoulders, it felt cold and had a really bad vibe, I would get five feet out of my room and felt something try to grab me (not physically but if felt to get near me and want me some how) and I would bolt down the rest of the hallway from there, about 15 feet in my run the feeling would go away... my mom would not go in the 3 back room if not absolutely needed for the first 6 months we lived there. One night I turned on my light and layed down.. not even 30 seconds after I laid down I saw two very clear distinct red eyes looking at me from about 2 feet back past the doorway, I freaked out covered my head and screamed, I looked back about 10 seconds later and it was gone. I had convinced my self that I had dreamed this growing up to survive, I knew I was lying to my self. A few months ago this delusion was shattered. I was talking to my mom and she told me she had seen the same red eyes once before. This brought shivers to my arms as my mother is not the kind to lie and make things up, she said she had not said anything before for my sake. When she saw these eyes they were in her room in another section of the house. I lived in that house for 9 years and never once slept decently. I changed rooms trying to get comfort, and found the middle room the easiest. The room opposite room I had for the first 6 years had another feeling in it... I don't know if I am sensitive to the paranormal but I could swear I could feel something looking at me all over this house, but in another room it was always coming from the middle of the room by the closet. If you have found anything on the red eyes please let me know via this forum. Thanks.. Hope this helps.

hehe. Think we've all had those dreams at some point. Guessing mine was soon after a Star Wars film! You know the little guys...

Much the same thing, but nowhere under the bed to hide. Dreamt I'd woken up in the night. Initially a sensation of "evil", and movement or something. Looked down the bottom of the bed where I felt the movement had come from and found two sets of red eyed short black figures looking back at me. All I could see was the glowing eyes. The rest was more shadow. Naturally scared was the first reaction. Head under covers in panic. Thoughts started to race...

Slightly strange outlook. I've never taken stereotypes and what I've been told at face value. For some reason (physics interest started early), I considered that the feeling of evil might not be real, maybe static or something.. tingly. Wondered how i'd feel if I met with that reaction all the time, and considered that I should be welcoming.

Held breath and shakily looked back trying to calm them.

Instant change in dream. Happy feeling.. drifting past all sorts of weird figures including yetis, things with tentacles etc. Next things, in a huge cavern full of "sort of kids".. kinda like dwarves but childlike with stunning blue eyes all looking up at me happily.

Short version.. paranormal? Probably not. Electrical activity in the brain? Probably.. it's there most of the time after all. Sceptic? Maybe. Open minded. Does it mean anything? Who knows. Lessons learnt? Perhaps just that faced with the unknown, other cultures and beliefs, however it fits with your model and the way you have been raised, approach all with openness and calm, not panic and blind judgement. That's not a lesson for the paranormal. That's a lesson in how you face life!

I hate to say it, but I had exactly the same experience when i was a kid some 22 some-odd years ago /- when I was around 6. I couldn't breathe, scream, nothing. I remember my mom being outside my room, and I was really wishing she would come into my room and make the damn thing go away. I couldn't help but hide under my covers. It was the beginning of a whole bunch of more experiences that even get more weird, where was not even sure if I was completely awake or not.

But this is the first time I've ever come across with anyone experiencing the same thing. Not to scare you, and I'm not pulling shit out my ass.

However I do have adult onset epilepsy that came on 10 years ago but I can't see any corolation to that.

Well I don't know how much I believe in that stuff but my son and his wife moved into a very nice neighborhood after he finished dental school. All kinds of strange things started happening like scratching on the door, the 3 you old seeing a woman in his closet with "mushy cheeks" and dirt on her face, the vacuum cleaner turning on and off and one nite her computer crashed, the burgled ala went off and the back bedroom floor was freezing cold . The next day she asked an MD that lived in the nhood if anything like that happeded in any other houses. He said it happened all the time b/ c the subdivision was built over a potters field where they bury poor people. Just before they moved their neighbor put her house up for sale. She said she couldn't sleep b/c there was music coming out of her closet. Maybe something wants you out of the house.

yes I saw them too when I was very young..I think I was 4. I was laying in bed asleep on the bottom bunkbed when I awoke to a long sharp stroke going down the back of my neck....this happened a few times. I turned around to see what was doing this and there they were...two huge red eyes. I was so paralyzed with fear that I couldn't scream or move away from it. I turned my head towards the wall again and closed my eyes and prayed for it to go away. ....and that was all I remember except the buttons on the back of my nighty were open the next morning. And yes I lived in the country as well in a house that my father built. I am now 42 and still have fears it will come back.

I personally believe that this kind of thing is normal. I had a similar experience... Spirits, demons, whatever, they love to mess with you. As a child, I used to see things, like shadows in the dark that I know weren't supposed to be there, I even used to feel like I was being dragged off my bed.

I was lying down in bed one night, facing the wall, trying to go to sleep. Something told me to turn around, so I did. These red glowing eyes, stared down at me; I ignored themed and turned around to try to sleep again. After a couple seconds, being a young child and curious, I decide to turn around again. When I did, they were closer to my face, so close I didn't know what to do. I couldn't move for a while, I just stared, then after I got back to my senses, I dashed forward and ran off. But again, being the child I was, I stopped by the door to look back, they were gone; I heard a dark, and devilish laugh. I ran off, needless to say.

No, it's NOT normal at all! (Well duh xD)
But when I was 10 and I went to Cambodia (Yes, I'm Cambodian) my uncle, his wife and kid and I went to Angkor Wat. A veerryyy old temple said to be haunted by tormented spirits. (Destination Truth came here and GOOGLE it if you don't know) I was alone from everyone else (Still don't know why they let a 10 year old walk around by himself) and a bone... A HUMAN femur to be exact dropped out from just a random place in front of me while I was standing in some type of pit. I thought it was a monkey that dropped it, but there were no monkeys around me. I picked the bone up and it just out of nowhere started raining. Later at night, I kept feeling followed and red eyes kept appearing out of every dark corner... During the middle of the night, I started bleeding and I found Khmer (Cambodian language)carved into my leg.
Sounds like I was just a stupid kid, but I actually have a picture of my leg from that night.

you know i never thought anyone else experienced what i did at 4 years old, but one night i had a bad dream and ran to my mom and step dads room and crawled in-between them. All was good fell back asleep in there bed then i woke suddenly with my mom ad step dad not in the room and a dark figure standing at the end of the bed with glowing red eyes at first i was terrified, then remembering that my mom kept scissors beside her on the nightstand so i slowly slid my hand over to them and the figure did not move just breathed very heavily, then i grabbed the scissors and threw them at the dark figure right at its shadowy head and they hit it and hurt it somehow when it crouched in pain with a big moan i ran out of the room down the hall to my sisters room and no one was there so i ran down the stairs to the basement were my brothers slept still no one not a single family member was in the house so i sat at the bottom of the stairs the only thing that was around was my black cat midnight he came out of my parents room and down the stairs and sat with me ,and the next day i awoke were i had sat on the stairs and the scissors had coagulated blood on them my mom was ad-omit
that it was not a very funny joke, the when my step dad bought and old army jacket from the cold war he brought it home and tried it on but when he looked in the mirror it wasn't him the was the previous owner standing there.i think a selected few have been chose for something not sure what but we have all seen this at around the same age.
Ive always thought and felt that there was a reason why i am hear. you ever feel like your here for a huge purpose?

I can't believe there are so many others who experienced this same thing, and in a similar manner such as myself when I was young. I was about ten and I will never forget it. Since that night I havnt experienced something so real and scary, and will never forget those red eyes on my seiling, even though I only got a glimpse. It was dark and there were two red eyes that seemed to glow while they looked down at me. I immediately ran out of my room and didn't go back to sleep there- often sleping on the couch instead. I know it is silly to say it is normal, but with so many others seeing the same thing, I wonder if there may be some connection. Creeeeepyyyy for sure.

I've been bothered with red glowing eyes all my life, since I was 5 years old.
I remember sleeping in my parents room as a child because in my own room I never got any sleep. I saw red eyes in the mirror which reflected from the window outside (2nd floor).
Anyways, in my parents room, which I usally went down to (1st floor) to try get some sleep there is this "baby bed" with gitters or what ever you call it, "bars". I slept in that bed and when I closed my eyes for a few secconds I opened them again and red eyes, right infront of me staring intense at me. I didn't get scared since it looked like cat/dinasour eyes with those small long pupiles.
Since that day I've kept seeing this thing. I've got this thing checked out at a doctor, but nothing is mentaly wrong with me. It's not a problem, but very very scary when I suddendly look around in a dark room and red eyes are staring at me, glowing.
I would say it's an effect of something, like the "Bloody Mary" ghost. You hear about her, think about her and you see her because you make a picture of her in your head and then become scared or something which calls the image to display in your mind.
Like... if you stare at the "Jesus Picture" (black and white picture) and then look at something else, example a white wall you will see Jesus in colors.

Other than that what we all could be seeing is the Night Crawler from Rome.

You all never thought that maybe just maybe it was your own red eyes reflecting? Happens. Sometimes looking inward instead of some unknown outside thing is all.

I found this website becasue i had to look up red/orange eyes.

I had stayed at my friends house saturday, and we had gotten out of her house at around, id say, 12:30 sunday morning. she said she had a creepy feeling after walking down the porch., we got in her car and she backed out of the driveway, andturned to the right, as we proceeded to go, i turned my gaze back toward the house. I had seen it only for a split second before the car had driven to far for me to see it anymore, a pair of, what i saw as orange eyes glareing over the raised porch, as soon as i looked in its direction its glare snapped at me, and i was frozen in the car., my friend asked what was wrong, but until we were a maile or so down the road, i coudent speak or move. I asked if she had just seen what i had seen, she said she hadent becasue she was driving, but she asked me if it was a pair of red eyes. I was taken by complete suprise, but then she explained she had seen them before. this was my first experiance like this ever, and im not sure what to do.

I have been successfully able to keep them at bay by keeping plants in my room. Plants create a protective field around those that care for them. I haven't had any issues with sleep Paralysis. When present, they seem to allow only benign beings to come in. If you look at traditional cultures, there were certain types of plants that had properties to keep evil spirits away.

If any of you guys are interested, I suggest reading "The Secret Life of Plants", by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird.

Look I can tell all of you who told a story like this your. It crazy stuff like this really does happen. Why you might ask because God, Satan, angles, demons they r all real there have been many stories of kids seeing HEAVON or ppl seeing hell its truth. And I u did see some thing then you are. Blessed because that was probably the spirit of the person who died in the house because their spirit is stuck there idk why but it's true. I've almost died many of times and I can tell u Christ is real and did die on the cross so u did see what you think you saw or maybe it wasn't that bad or may e it was worse who knows well just ask Jesus Christ you Lord, God, and you Savior to not let you see that again

Is it normal to see red eyes in the dark. Let me respond with this, Is it normal to halucinate demonic images?

Sounds like it could have just been a dream. It may have just been a sleep paralysis episode where you half way wake up, while your body is asleep. What can happen is the image of the room can kind of get imprinted in your mind when you halfway wakeup and open your eyes for a little bit. Then, after closing your eyes and falling back asleep into a typical sleep state, you usually have a dream about the room and setting you happen to be sleeping in, because its the most recent thing on your mind. A lot of people die in houses. Its nothing uncommon. You were probably just uncomfortable about being in a new house and new place, and you had a scary dream about the house as a result. That phenomenon I explained can seem very real and seemless. The fact that it happened so long ago doesn't help either. Memories tend to get muddied up over time, and it can be very hard to recall them accurately. When I was 3, I had a dream that I stuck my hands under the bed after waking up and rabid hamburgers started gnawing on them like a dog or something. It was very scary, and seemed very real. I really doubt the existence of killer hamburgers though. When you're three, though, you'll believe anything.
