Reddit users were asked the question: “What is the creepiest ‘glitch in the matrix’ you’ve experienced?”, and some answers were so freaky that we just had to share them. You may have to sleep with a light on after reading these real life accounts of unexplainable events – from small everyday glitches to some seriously messed up stuff, this will leave you questioning pretty much everything!

Prepare to be extremely unnerved, as although some of these are kind of funny, some of them are downright weird.

We really fancy an explanation for these if anyone has one! Be warned: some of them are a little lengthy, but totally worth the read...enjoy...
