If you have any kind of knowledge about what goes down on social media, you’ll have no doubt heard of Dear David.
The story is one of terror, including terrifying dreams, unknown phone calls and ghostly visitations. It’s certainly not a story to be reading if you want to sleep tonight.
This story goes back a while, and it involves a gent called Adam Ellis, who has been subjected to some seriously spooky spectral activity in his New York apartment for some time.
Adam is a New York illustrator and says a dead baby has been causing him a great deal of grief in his Manhattan abode. It all began with a creepy-as-hell dream in which Ellis was woken up to see a young boy with a massive dent in his head stood there looking at him.
Not the weirdest thing to ever happen, right? Well, that’s obviously not all that went down.
Over the next few weeks, he had all sorts of hauntings which caused his cats to stare at the front door at the same time every night without fail; he received unknown phone calls where some spectral sounding voice spoke to him; he’s even seen shadows of David in the mirror. Here’s the full rundown of what happened.
During the night on Saturday, while I slept, it recorded the cats in the living room. It seemed pretty unremarkable at first.
But now we have proof of the first actual visitation by David and by God it’s absolutely terrifying.
Adam wrote on Twitter:
Last night I dreamed about him again. It was almost exactly the same as the first time I saw him… He was staring right at me, just like the first time. Again, I felt paralyzed & could barely move.
But this time, something was different. I still felt mostly immobile, but I could squirm a just little bit. I felt more alert. I could move my hands somewhat. David glared at me, and I dreaded what I knew was coming. He was going to get out of the chair and come toward me, like before.
I thought, ‘If David is going to kill me, maybe I can at least evidence on my phone.’ I started snapping pictures in the dark. Sure enough, he crawled down off the chair and began shuffling toward me. He moved slowly, like it was a struggle for him.
I felt terrified, but I kept taking photos. David limped closer toward me, never taking his eyes off me. Soon I was face to face with him… He started muttering something, too quiet for me to understand. I watched as his eyes rolled back in his head, until they were all white…
But it was all a dream after all, so I got up and went to work, and after a while the stress of the dream melted away…
But tonight I noticed something that petrified me.
I went into my phone to find a picture from a couple days ago, & saw dozens of pitch black photos in my camera roll. All from last night.
Here are the photos, but beware, they’re pretty damn scary:
Back in August when this stuff first started happening, UNILAD spoke with Adam to get his take on what was happening in his apartment.
David started appearing a couple months ago in dreams, but I think he’s starting to cross over into the real world.
I wanted to write everything down just so I have a record of it in case things escalate and get worse.
I’ve never really believed in ghosts, but I never really ruled it out, either. I think there’s a lot we don’t know.
When it first started happening, I told my friends and coworkers about it, and they were all really creeped out about it.
They’re always asking me for updates, but David seems to appear sporadically.
Well Dear David has certainly stepped things up since then. If I were Adam I’d just move.
