IN the past couple of years, I’ve received a number of reports of “faceless” entities.
These range from roadside encounters to manifestations of spirits with no facial features. While such reports aren’t completely new, there does seem to be a slight increase in them.
Researcher Albert S. Rosales is constantly digging up interesting accounts and recently posted his report on a creepy incident involving two faceless beings. The report was sent directly to Rosales and the witness names are withheld by request.
A summer night in 2013:
“The main witness and a friend decided to walk around the block in a pretty quiet suburban neighborhood. Once they started walking down the middle of the street, everything became strangely quiet. No crickets, frogs, wind, nothing. It seemed like the breeze stopped as well. They kept walking, and about halfway down the street they saw a minivan in a driveway with the hood up, and there were these two “things” peering into the engine like they were studying it. They were white and they had no faces. There was a soft glow coming off them like if they were reflecting a black light, but it seemed like there wasn’t really a source for it. The white flowers in the yard had the same glow. The strange figures looked about normal height, two arms, and two legs. They sort of jumped when the witnesses came into view, like they were surprised. Then they half-hid behind the van and both witnesses immediately had this feeling like they ‘could not look at them, no matter what.’
That was probably the most scared the main witness has ever been.
They both kept walking forward and watched out of the corner of their eyes, and the entities watched them, while also trying to position themselves behind the van.
The main witness got the impression that ‘they’ weren’t used to hiding much because they would look at them, then look at the van, then at themselves, then crouch behind the van a little more.
The witnesses kept walking, looking ahead until they got to the end of the street. At this point, all the normal sounds returned and they could feel the breeze again, everything again felt normal. The main witness wasn’t really sure if he was going to say something to his friend but suddenly and at the same time they both stopped and exhaled really hard. He asked his friend if he had seen those ‘white figures,’ but for most of the walk, they wouldn’t talk about it and his friend just told him to shut up. Strangely, the witnesses had the feeling that they shouldn’t talk about what they had seen.
Three years later, the main witness finally spoke to his friend about what they had seen, his friend looked pretty freaked out and asked the main witness if he remembered them crossing the street in front of them, which the main witness did not. He told him it was right after he fell or laid down, and all of the sudden, the main witness remembered right before he saw them, he looked over and his friend was laying down on the side of the road, stiff as a board and not responding to anything the witness was saying, he was just blinking really hard.
Eventually he got up and they just kept walking. Around the time that his friend fell to the ground is when everything became quiet and eerie. The witness doesn’t know how he could have forgotten that part.”
The aura of silence created in the presence of the two figures is a curious aspect that I’ve heard in a small handful of cases before. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the creepy “gentlemen” in an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Ghoulish figures who come floating in and create dead silence in their presence.
Of course, there’s something inherently disturbing about a figure without a face. Humans relate through their facial expressions and features and to be confronted with a blank nothingness is most unsettling. David Weatherly
