If having to deal with shadow people a.k.a. shadow figures wasn’t enough, there seems to be a single ominous entity or type of entity which is regularly showing up. While shadow people seem to manifest too individuals as these blacker than black nondescript shadows, mists or black masses, there seems to be someone or something appearing more often in these horrifying encounters around the world. In fact, this supernatural being has appeared so often to folks nowadays it has been given a name, “The Hat Man“. This is either an individual or type of shadow men which is appearing to people much more often during these evil shadow occurrences. No one seems to know how or why these dark ghostly encounters are occurring and why more frequently these days. Of course, people/paranormal researchers have all types of theories and explanations as to why, however the hat man remains for the most part a mystery along with the shadow people.
The hat man is a shadow person or demon depending on who you ask, however most people believe it’s evil in nature either way. This entity is commonly described as a rather tall shadow person dressed in a long trench coat and typically wearing a wide brimmed hat however there are reports of him wearing a fedora. Generally speaking he is always completely in black and either has no facial characteristics which can be ascertained or is blurred intentionally. Essentially like all shadow people his appearance is completely black (blacker than darkness) and the silhouette of a man. Nevertheless, there are reports of glowing eyes on occasion in particular bright red eyes according to witnesses.
Another distinguishing factor of the dark man is the fact that most shadow creatures are usually observed for just a moment or two before they dart away (typically through walls or out of sight) or instantly disappear. They typically hang around for an instant however the shadow man in contrast often lingers around for an extended amount of time. He makes himself known and wants to be observed by his chosen target/victim. There are even reports of victims being poked/touched in some manner, choked and even assaulted mentally and physically. However, as a matter of clarification there are reports of similar harassment and assaults by shadow people in general as well, just not as often.
For reasons yet not fully understood the dark man seems to be either attracted too or an instigator of anger fueled hostile environments/situations. And is consequently often viewed/identified as an omen of death, sadness, despair, terror and evil to come. This dark entity seems to particularly make itself known during all types of domestic disturbances and other similar anger fueled encounters. As a side note, demonic entities better known as demons share the same type of characteristics. These demon’s feed off fear and despair as their diabolic influence on people grows stronger, it’s a vicious cycle. However, there is no conclusive proof that the hat man is a type of demon per se or demonic per nature. We just don’t have all the facts at the present moment, to make a decisive determination either way.
- There have been no known occurrences of a “Hat Woman” at least as far as I know or it’s possible it is not widely known as of yet as compared to “The Hat Man”.
- There are also accounts of an all-black cloaked figure with and without red eyes appearing as well, very similar in nature to the hat man. Are they the same being, or are they different entities? Further investigation is necessitated before we can make any kind of firm conclusion.
