Welcome to the Hatman Project

Hello. My name is Timothy M. Brown, Jr. and I am the site owner, administrator, and researcher for The Hat Man Project. The purpose of this site is to research the phenomenon that has come to be known as “The Hat Man.” Reports of The Hat Man and other shadow beings have been on the rise within the last several decades. It was due to my own experience with this being, as well as my awareness of other people’s sightings of The Hat Man that I decided to begin this research project.

I started this project in 2001, collecting what few stories I could find on the web at the time. Since that time, this site has received hundreds of stories from people all over the world. It has taken me the better part of 20 years to fully understand what this phenomenon is all about. And after years of research I have finally come a conclusion of who or what the Hatman is, why he is appearing now, why he is appearing to people all over the world, and what to do if you are (or have had) and encounter with him.

I am currently writing a book about the Hatman called The Hatman Revealed. In this book I plan to go into detail about the commonalities of the many hundreds of stories we’ve received over the years and what those commonalities reveal about this being and phenomenon. There will be no cost for this book, and I believe that this has become more of a mission of mine more than anything else. This information needs to get out there.

The aim of this website is to explore the stories of the many sightings that have been reported. This is the very first and only web site solely devoted to researching, collecting, and archiving information and stories relating to The Hat Man. As more stories are researched and collected they will be posted on this site regularly.

Have you seen the Hatman? If you or anyone you know has had this experience, we would love to hear from you and add your story to this site. If you have a sighting or an encounter you would like to tell, please post your story here to the right of this page. Once reviewed we will post it online and give others a chance to comment on it. We look forward to hearing from you. If you would like to reach out to us personally, you may do so by contacting us here.

Shadow Man Who Stands Behind The Green Fog

By |February 6th, 2024|

I saw the shadow hat man as a young child no older than 6. At the time I shared a bed with my parents and slept on the edge closest to the bedroom door. Now I can’t tell you how many times I saw hat man but it was certainly numerous and terrifying each time, although all’s hat man would do is just stand in the doorway and stare, he had a long dark coat and top hat with like a green fog that rolled behind him. I would see him and be terrified as a young child, to the

A Black Mist That Turned Into A Shadow

By |February 6th, 2024|

First, before I tell this story, I like to keep my name anonymous for safety reasons. I was about 6 or 7, when I experienced this, I was in my house, and my bedroom, my cat was at the Doorway I'm pretty sure. I was turned around, and I just wanted to turn back around when I did, I froze, and when I looked up, I saw what I can only describe a black mist that quickly turned to a shadow. I couldn't see my cat anymore, and when I and when it went away, I started moving again, and

He Had No Face… But I Sensed Him Grin!

By |January 18th, 2024|

It was about 8 years ago when I first began having strange experiences . Awakenings would be a better word . I began to be very conscious of things I'd not seen before . New learnings and understandings . About 2 years after this began I was sitting in my loungeroom ..eyes closed just relaxing . When I opened them I saw in front of me ..not my usual TV cabinet and such . But instead what looked like a transparent pub bar ? With bar stools and everything . Sitting on by one was a very black shadow !

A Recurring Dream About the Hatman

By |December 11th, 2023|

When I was a kid I had this recurring dream every single night for a while. I was terrified to go to sleep every night because I knew I would have the dream. I dreamed that I was walking through the front door of my house at night, then I would look to my right where my dads office was. I would see a shadow man sitting in my dads chair wearing a hat with a brim. I was immediately paralyzed with fear. I would try to run, but I'd just fall on the ground. I'd try to scream, but

12 years ago sleeping in my bed an something woke me up. I opened my eyes and the Hat Man and a shorter man was standing beside him at shoulder height. He said.
