Freaky "Dear David" Story Will Straight-Up Terrify You

If anyone is in the market for a new horror movie plot, boy have we found it.

Buzzfeed writer Adam Ellis has been documenting his terrifying "Dear David" ordeal on Twitter and there's a reason the story has gone viral; beginning "So, my apartment is currently being haunted by the ghost of a dead child and he's trying to kill me", the whole thing is a roller coaster from start to finish and has legitimately given us goosebumps.

Just before we get started though, if you're reading this before you're about to go to bed, you might want to bookmark and come back in the morning. Fair warning.


A couple of days later, Adam says, he had another dream, this time set in a library where he was approached by a girl who said, "You've seen Dear David, haven't you?"

This girl goes on to tell Adam that Dear David only appears at midnight, and he can only be asked two questions. 

"Never try to ask him a third question," she warns him in the dream. "Or he'll kill you."

For the next few days Adam sets about Googling deaths in the city, but can't find anything about a kid by the name of David dying in a shop.

He says he even tries different names - Daniel, Dylan, Devon - but comes up with nothing.

Several weeks without a visit from Dear David go by and, as chance would have it, the apartment directly above his becomes available; he moves upstairs and a couple more months pass.

Just as Adam becomes convinced that Dear David has lost track of him in the move, something strange starts happening.

Insert terrified emoji here. We would NOT want to be Adam right now.
