Shadow figures aren't ghost. They aren't aliens. They aren't fairies or goblins or woodland creatures we hear about but don't see. So what are they?

The sad truth is: No one really knows. We know what they look like -- dark, shadowy figures that creep in the corner of our eyesight, just out of view that we only see for a moment or two before they disappear -- more than we know what they actually are.

They could be demon figures. Or aliens. Or maybe ghosts. But they lack some of the characteristics of past sightings of all of these entities. They could look human-like, but not necessarily. There is no consistent look. Some describe them as blob-like, just a dark figure slithering across the wall and a sense of malevolence in the gut.

It's a relative newcomer to the paranormal scene and will take some investigation to get to the bottom of the sightings and what they really mean.
