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.

My Encounter With Mr. Death

By |May 31st, 2023|

This happened a very long time ago, I was between 2 1/2 and 3 yrs. old. So, 1966? It's the first paranormal experience I remember. The time of day was late afternoon and it was still sunny and clear outside. I was looking out of a window while I was standing on our couch in the living room. My Mom and Dad were in the kitchen making lunch, and I saw him standing at the end of our driveway. I was fully awake, I didn't say anything at first we just stared at each other. He was a solid black

Nightly Terror For Years

By |May 31st, 2023|

When I was 15, two of my friends tragically died in an ATV accident. That night, around 3 am I woke to a shadow figure standing over my bed looking down at me. I couldn't make out any features, but it looked like a man wearing a trench coat and hat. He quickly disappeared and I tried to scream, but no sound came out of me. I realized then that he was standing on the side of my bed that was against the wall, not humanly possible. This continued for many years, until I was 22 yrs old. Almost nightly,

From the 1980s

By |May 31st, 2023|

I'm a 41 yr old male. I can't exactly remember how old I was when I saw The Hat Man, but I think it was sometime either right before or after 1986. That would have made me 5 or 6/7 years old. I was sleeping in with my mom and dad. I remember waking up in the middle of the night. In the door frame of my parent's bedroom, I saw a man, wearing a long coat and a wide-brimmed hat. I felt that he was looking at me. I pulled the blanket up over my face and then peeked

Nightime Visitor

By |May 31st, 2023|

I was about 12 years old at this time. My bed was in the corner of my room against 2 walls. I had been having trouble sleeping that night, as I had recently discovered the horrors of nuclear weapons and their history. It should also be noted that I had no siblings and was living with only my mum at the time. I tossed and turned until I eventually rolled over to face the wall. Not long after this, I felt a cold bony finger poke me in the side. Out of reflex, I spun around to see who was

He Wants To Dance With Me

By |May 31st, 2023|

My name is Javiera, I am now 29 years old, I live in Chile, South America. I've seen The Hatman 2 times in my life. The first time I was a child...about 4-5 years old. I was watching TV on my parent's bed and he was standing at the door's bed. He was only looking at me (I didn't see his eyes, he was very tall, all black, but I knew he was looking at me...his energy always is intense). I stand up from bed and walk a little bit because I didn't feel so much fear...I was curious too...he

Black As A Black Hole Itself

By |May 31st, 2023|

I experienced a kundalini awakening in August of 2011 and my inner vision is now open which is maybe why I saw The Hat Man one night, but I'm not sure. 1. First of all, he came to me, in 2012 as a silhouette. He looked like a Victorian Gentleman with a hat and cane at the end of my bed at night.- I was intrigued, curious, and captivated, but not scared, (yet). I guess that didn't work well with his agenda because obviously, I wasn't getting the point or message. 2. Spiders and strange grey/black mists started to take

When Two Figures Approached Me

By |May 31st, 2023|

I didn't know there was a "Hat Man Phenomenon" until this evening. I thought the experience was mine, alone, until I watched a documentary on sleep paralysis today. I was struck by the similarities that some of the people experienced to what I experienced as a teenager in the mid to late 80s, and decided to Google it, by describing the characteristics of what I saw. I will give a description here: I was around 15 years old and had stayed up late in the family room watching tv while the rest of the family slept upstairs. I was tired

Death Awoke Me

By |May 31st, 2023|

I saw the Hat Man when I was 19. I am now almost 37. I did not know until today that I wasn’t the only person to see a vision of the Hat man. My daughter found it on the internet so it’s been a very eerie day. I find it very strange that hundreds of people are seeing the same image. My experience with this hat man was when I was 19. I was drinking really badly at that time in my life. I was suffering from heartbreak and drowned myself in alcohol to kill the pain. One night

A Man Standing In The Shower

By |May 31st, 2023|

When I was 17, I had a trying life. My parents had just kicked me out, and I'd just found out I was pregnant. The pregnancy wasn't a real worry, because the guy I was with was already 'the one' (he still is at nearly 11 years later), but the issues with my parents had stress coming out of my ears. One night I was taking a shower, and I closed my eyes to rinse the shampoo out of my hair, and when I finally opened them, there was a man standing in the shower with me. I screamed for
