Bloke Who Reckons A Dead Baby Is Haunting Him Posts Creepy Photos

If you haven't been following the scary escapades of Adam Ellis then you are sorely missing out. Well, if you like sleeping and not hiding under your covers then I guess you might not be missing out, but it's a pretty epic story.

In short, the New York based illustrator says a dead baby has been haunting him in his apartment. The ghost started appearing in his dreams while he experiences sleep paralysis. Ellis says he sees the baby, which has a horrifically misshapen head, like an anvil had been dropped on one side of it, at the foot of his bed - just chilling.

Apparently, this baby is called Dear David, and at midnight you're only allowed to ask him two questions.


He said a month later, after moving to the apartment upstairs, he noticed his two cats would sit at the foot of his front door and stare at it exactly at midnight. Adam even uploaded two videos, showing a chair rocking without anyone on it, and more spookily, a green jar moving without anyone touching it.

But now he's uploaded one of the most haunting elements to this saga.


Adam wrote on Twitter: "Last night I dreamed about him again. It was almost exactly the same as the first time I saw him. He was staring right at me, just like the first time. Again, I felt paralyzed & could barely move. But this time, something was different. David glared at me, and I dreaded what I knew was coming. He was going to get out of the chair and come toward me, like before.

"I thought, 'If David is going to kill me, maybe I can at least get evidence on my phone'. I started snapping pictures in the dark. I felt terrified, but I kept taking photos. David limped closer toward me, never taking his eyes off me. Soon I was face to face with him.

"But it was a dream after all, so I got up and went to work, and after a while the stress of the dream melted away.

"But tonight I noticed something that petrified me. (Turn up your brightness)

"I went into my phone to find a picture from a couple days ago, & saw dozens of pitch black photos in my camera roll. All from last night."

This is the first time he's had photo evidence of Dear David - and it's pretty fucking creepy.

Adam has invested in a Ouija board, a Polaroid camera and the bizarre goings on show no sign of relenting. What's worse, is that Adam has been getting unknown numbers calling him, and when a small voice on the other end whispered 'hello', Adam hung up the phone immediately.

He keeps his Twitter followers up to date with everything Dear David related so if he stops posting for a while - we'll know something has happened to him.
