It happens more often than not. Puttering away in the basement, retrieving whatever stored item you need and you get to the bottom of the stairs. Comfortable, you flick off the lights behind you.

The creepy feeling sets in.

The hairs on your neck raise and you know that something is coalescing in the dark behind you.
