What exactly are Shadow People? Are they ghosts? Are they malevolent beings from another dimension? Or are they just a trick of the light?
There have been many reports of them among paranormal investigators and the one thing that stands out is that they tend to linger for a few seconds before disappearing, almost to make a point. Their appearance is usually accompanied by a sinking feel of apprehension and dread.
Alarmingly, there have been reports of individuals being chased and even attacked by these beings.
Typically, they do not portray physical features or clothes, with the exception of a hat which is seen frequently in sightings. They tend to move extremely quickly, after making sure that they have been seen, usually darting through doorways or melting into walls. At other times, they seem to be stuck in a time loop, following the same path around a room or building, without faltering.
Of course there are many theories on what these beings truly are.
Whatever they are, most of them certainly don’t mind being caught on film, with many photos and video evidence around. Perhaps they are visiting from another world or dimension and are trying to make contact with us first.
As with all things paranormal, they will remain a dark and eerie mystery until solid proof is produced.
