Twitter user and beloved cartoonist Adam Ellis has become somewhat of a paranormal investigator as a character from his nightmares seems to be appearing in his apartment. Ellis is now using social media to document the supernatural occurances in his home.
Ellis says he began noting a child with a misshapen head appearing in his dreams while he suffered from sleep paralysis. The child sat in a green chair. Nights later, a girl appeared in his dreams to identify the deformed kid as "Dear David."
"'He's dead. He only appears at midnight, and you can ask him two questions if you said 'Dear David' first,' wrote Ellis on Twitter. "'But never try to ask him a third question, or he'll kill you.'"
Adam claims he followed the ghost's directions and discovered that David had died in a store after a shelf fell on his head. He continued interrogating the spectre beyond the second question, but woke up screaming after not heeding the girl's warnings.
Ellis eventually moved to another apartment in the building where the supernatural occurances began subsiding until he noticed the strange behavior of his cats, who would gather at the door at midnight as if someone was on the other side.
Ellis then dreamed that David had dragged him through a warehouse, waking up with a bruise on his arm. Later, he noticed a mysterious green chair ominously placed in a recently-abandoned warehouse near his building.
Adam also began getting calls from unknown numbers, at one point hearing a spooky "Hello," on the other line.
Wanting more information on his possible haunting, Ellis installed nannycams in his apartment to collect data while he was away.
"I sort of feel like I'm losing my mind," he writes. He's now sharing his recordings, which include the inexplicable movement of a handful of inanimate objects, on social media.
The story has since gone viral, with the first tweet in the thread garnering over 50,000 responses.
Many suspect the account to be some kind of viral marketing plot, while others offered advice on how to rid the place of nasty spirits.
