When I , my sister Kathy & my brother Walt. were teens, we had an encounter with what we called a "Cruster Man,, We don't know how we got the name , but each one of us say & described the same thing...
We were in our house, in the kitchen we'd see the basement door open up slightly and saw a large eye looking at us... we then see a hairy, man - like creature with a black cape, all in black with long claws, big teeth & a top hat, sitting on the 3rd step clawing at us... we screamed, and it disappeared, we were soo frightened, we would not even want to go up the upstairs steps or upstairs.... At first, everyone tried to say it was a figment of our imagination, and we know it was not, we know what we all saw.. My brother called it a Cruster.. we do not know how or why he came up with the name... but all 3 of us saw this thing and we all had the same description.
Even today, we all still can see it & it still bothers us , and we do not like to talk about it so we do not get nightmares about it or we would think it could come back.. We never saw it again, and do not want to. Some people believe that it was something evil in the house.
