9) Deranged ghost Family on SW Ranchito St – Palm City
A family of deranged spirits skulk around after midnight on Ranchito Street, believed to be looking for a new home to haunt after theirs was destroyed in a hurricane. Locals think that they are two parents and three children who were driven mad while alive, due to severe abuse and drugs – leading to the father killing them all.
Now they inflict their madness on anyone who comes into contact with them, filling their minds with such horror and rage that the victims end up hospitalized or worse. They swarm you when you least expect it, starting with howling winds and psychotic whispers, slowly driving you insane.
8) Burnt Offerings at Fellsmere Rd – Fellsmere
Many years ago there was an accident on this road where a couple were incinerated and died on the spot. Some locals say that if you stop anywhere here you’re likely to have a terrifying experience, when the apparitions of their blackened bodies close in on you. It starts with the awful stench of burnt flesh.
One witness stated that he pulled over to answer his cell phone, when he began to smell smoke. He looked up and saw the shadows of a man and woman who were like large, burning embers. He screamed when one of their scorched hands pressed against the window, making him drive off in a wild panic.
7) Creepy Ghost Children at SE 6th Ave – Okeechobee
It’s believed that there are several ghost children lurking around this road at night – and they are anything but angelic. Only appearing when twilight starts, they skulk around the trees and bushes – sometimes seen hiding among the trash cans. Some say they are the ghosts of feral children from long ago.
One woman reported that they are like small, crouching shadows until you get close. She advised that she nearly fainted when one stood up, giving her a clear view of swollen flesh covering the childs’ eye sockets. It then showed broken teeth as it hissed at her – making the others join in with the hissing. She said she never goes out at night so she can avoid these freaky creatures.
6) Drowned Sorrows on Rainbow Dr – Inverness
Witnesses report of the terrifying spirits of people who committed suicide by drowning at the nearby Holden Lake. They appear out of nowhere like a cloud of dark orbs – sobbing and wailing as they try to attach themselves to anyone who dares to get close. One ghosthunter said he was followed home by one of them.
He reported that he drove past and saw the strange mist, so he stopped and got out to try and engage with them. As soon as he felt the dark energy flowing over him, he panicked and drove off. Later that night, while lying in bed, he felt a wet body next to him. It took him weeks to get the evil spirit banished.
5) The Devil on SW Locks Rd – Stuart
Some believe that the demon who haunts this road is none other than the Devil himself. Even though some locals say he’s just a ghost who likes to play tricks, several witnesses swear that the nefarious entity is the real deal. One older man said that he saw him in all his unholy glory late one night.
He was walking his dog when it started barking and whimpering all of a sudden. Then the street lights went out. Across the road he saw a misshapen entity looking right at him – it then told him that he was going to Hell. He never got over it and he still believes that if you see the Devil on SW Locks Road, your number’s up.
4) Demon Car on Florida A1A – Palm Beach
If you’ve ever seen Stephen King’s “Christine” you’ll have some idea about how terrifying it is when something mechanical is possessed. The thing is, this is considered by witnesses as a demonic ghost car which has nothing better to do but to mow people down – whether driving or on foot.
A young doctor who was driving through reports that he saw the headlights bearing down on him from behind – then they vanished – only to appear directly in front of him and racing at full speed towards him. He let go of the wheel and crashed into a fence, but was lucky to live to tell the tale.
3) Demonic Hybrid at Glades Pkwy – Weston
Floridians are used to seeing alligators, which is why most locals dismiss the reports of a reptilian monster haunting the Glades Pkwy. Witnesses tell of a low lying creature with eight legs – not four – and describe it as being part spider, part lizard. First you hear strange grunts and thudding as it comes out of nowhere.
One local believes that it’s some kind of hybrid with evil intentions, as the smell of rotting bodies hits you when you see its snapping jaws, while it zig-zags creepily along a path to attack. Some reported receiving gashes on their ankles after seeing this terrifying beast, which take ages to heal.
2) Cursed Spirits at NW 23rd Pl – Miami
Some say that there are several bodies that were dumped by drug lords in this lush patch of greenery on the side of the road, even though no one has bothered to dig. Locals believe that the fear is due to a strange curse placed on the land, while others say it’s the tortured spirits terrorizing everyone.
One local advised that she sees them mostly at the time of the full moon. She said that it starts with profanities being yelled in different languages and nasty threats of revenge. Another reported being followed by one of the evil spirits who threatened to slit his throat. Now he steers clear of NW 23rd Pl.
1) Dark Void on Porpoise Dr – Marathon
Sometimes it’s hard to define evil, especially when it appears differently to different people or has no form at all. This is the case with Porpoise Drive, where a mysteriously disturbing entity hides in the shadows. Some say that it appears like a man-sized bubble of light, which soon turns dark as it approaches.
A witness tells how she was riding her bike one night, when she saw something strange in front of her. She stopped and watched as the air “moved” above her. She felt a terrifying sense of nothingness – like a black void. Knowing that something evil was happening, she fled the scene. She still can’t explain what happened to this day.
