Did anyone of you experience an old hag attack?

Old hag attack have a scientific explanation that just doesn’t “cut the cheese” for me. Some of my friends and family members had their own spooky encounters and I’ve also talked to a lot of people online about the subject. So I’m curious, what did you experience and how do you explain it.
Have a spooky Hallowen people!

It has never happened to me, but I believe in it. i did a project on it for school. They try to explain it partially based on cultural influences, but people all over the world, from VERY different cultures experience it. The story is usually the same or very similar. Some people try to say that it is caused by suggestibility, but people who had never heard of it experienced it with, again, the same happenings. I read a book about it and we were warned that usually the number of people in the class that has experienced it doubles… Read more »

It sounds like a Baba Yaga or a Russian Nocnitsa. The best way to ward these attacks are to place a knife underneath the bed made of Iron or Steel, or plant some Baby’s breath at the window is said to deter the hag from your room too.

the “sleep paralysis” explanation doesnt do it for me either. years ago i had an experience in my ex-boyfriends house. i woke out of a sound sleep to find an evil looking creature sitting on my chest. it smelled awful. it sat and grinned at me. i wasnt able to move or scream for help. closed my eyes & opened them again, but it was still there. after doing this several times i was finally able to throw myself upright in bed. it was gone, but i was still able to smell it. i ran from the room screaming. i… Read more »

I am not a superstitious person but as children my sister and I slept in a third floor attic of an old Victorian row house. My father had earlier found test tubes and racks in an old cupboard in the loft when we moved in. One night my sister and I had a nightmare and tried to get down the narrow stairs to our parents room but were blocked by this entity. I told my younger sister to go ahead while Tinder (the imaginary friend I spoke to as a child) appeared as a very bright light between myself and… Read more »

I have not, but my brother has, and numerous others who I know. It’s not the old hag, that is an old legendary figure from folklore. However, it is known as the “sleep hag” and it’s not really a being. This state is known as sleep paralysis. It is when the human body awakes in the middle of the night, scientifically between one o’clock and three thirty in the morning. The body become paralyzed, almost as if everything in your nervous system has been frozen. The only thing working is your mind. Now, here’s where it gets tricky. The reason… Read more »
