The Owl Man
Through deep research and high-strangeness storytelling, three brothers explore paranormal encounters and unexplained events. Collecting freaky listener stories and scouring the dusty pages of classic Fortean texts, the brothers use high-production sound design to set the scene for alleged real encounters with, Dogman, Poltergeists, Bigfoot, Fairy Folk, Humanoids, UFOs, Shadow People, and Sky Creatures.. just to name a few.
Attempting to parse out the facts within folklore, the brothers of the Hole banter about everything from bizarre historical mysteries to emerging clandestine conspiracy theories, often challenging their own beliefs and sometimes each other’s sanity. Good humor, good drinks, and good discussion! Have you ever overheard a co-worker shakily tell his story of a real encounter with a Dogman? Has your friend or weird uncle told you about his close encounter with a reptilian humanoid from the sewer? Looking to corroborate your grandma’s true ghost stories? Were you born with a thirst for the mysterious? Well, sit back and pour yourself a big glass from the Belief Hole, my friend, and help us dig the weird!
Now, as a bit of disclosure, when I was a child I was prone to nightmares. I woke up so many nights screaming and crying for my mother that my older brother basically wanted to kill me so I would shut up. However, I was also prone to dreams in which things would happen that later transpired in my waking life, exactly as they had in the dream. My mother remembers this well, although I can only recall a couple instances vividly enough to call them memories. I bring these two facts up as two potential and opposing explanations to the phenomena. Either A. I had a bad dream, or B. I am/was open to certain frequencies/energies not otherwise accessible, and experienced something truly supernatural. Of course, there is always C. Some other explanation.
| THE EXPERIENCE
The night in question, I must have been either 2, 3, or 4 years old because I remember it was at a time when I was still sleeping in a crib, but was able to lower the gate myself and climb out. I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange figure standing over me in my crib. At first, I thought it was my brother, but as my eyes adjusted to the darkness of the room (which was lit only by my nightlight), and the silhouette came more into focus, I saw that this was not my brother at all – it was (I don’t know how to say this without sounding weird) an owl man! It had the face of what I know today is a barn owl – huge, hollow black eyes, a white circular face, and a long pointed beak.) This creature had the torso of a man, wearing a robe made of a burlap/wool material – like a monk. (In fact, even at that time I recognized it as the clothing of a monk because of Disney’s Robin Hood cartoon movie, and friar Tuck). I did not see it’s hands or feet, if it had any. I couldn’t move, I was frozen in fear, and I felt as if this thing had come to take me away. I screamed at the top of my lungs, “MOOOMMMMYYYYY”, and it was gone in an instant.
I kept up the screaming and sobbing until my mother arrived from her upstairs bedroom to see what was the matter. I told her there had been “a scary owl man” in my room, and she assured me it was just a bad dream. I will never forget that experience as long as I live. As I’ve grown older and started to open up again (I shut down a lot of my spirituality in my teens and 20s), I have started to experience “forward-looking” dreams and vivid nightmares again with more frequency, like back when I was a kid, but nothing before or since has seemed THIS real, or at least… not this terrifying.
