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.

The Hat Man of Brazil

By |November 15th, 2022|

This happened in Amazonas state, Brazil. I saw this silhouette back in 2001, I was 17 years old and was staying the weekend at a school friend's house. After we had dinner, she asked me to help her install the internet and teach her how to use it. Her pc was in her bedroom but the phone line was located in the living room. I got the CPU then while I set my foot in the corridor which led to the living room, a really tall silhouette came running at the wall, to my left, it was so tall his

Motel Hat Men

By |November 15th, 2022|

I travel to country areas in Victoria, Australia quite frequently with my mum for working weekends. We stayed in a small motel in a quiet country town on one of these occasions and my mum and I had separate rooms but they shared a wall and both bed heads were up against this shared wall. I have had some pretty interesting sleep paralysis experiences and this was one occasion. I went to bed but soon after felt the telltale symptoms of sleep paralysis where I couldn’t move and became instantly frightened. I then noticed TWO tall slim shadows ‘men’ standing

Encounter in broad daylight

By |November 14th, 2022|

This happened to me ten years ago when I was a teenager, my mom and I had to move to my grandparent's house. Sometime during the early period, after I moved there, I was sitting alone at the kitchen table eating. Then, a sense of dread and downright paralysis came over me and I was compelled to look at the kitchen door. Right there I could clearly see the shadow of a man with a hat and glowing yellow eyes. I could only watch, not being able to move a muscle. And then, the oddest thing happened: it smirked at

I Have Seen Him!!

By |November 14th, 2022|

Hi, well this is just something! Thought I was the only one! Well here is my encounter. I was in my late 30’s maybe? I was sleeping in my children’s room while they were at their father's for the weekend, with me at the time was my new husband. Due to the renovation of our bedroom, we were sleeping in my son's bed.  We were sleeping in a single bed. My husband woke me by saying "Do you see that sitting on the dresser?" I remember lifting my head off the pillow to see over him. What I saw was

I’ve seen the Hat Man

By |November 14th, 2022|

This event happened to me around 1993-1994 in the State of Mexico, Mexico, when I was around 5 to 6 years old. During the evening, somewhere at night after 8:00pm when it was dark already, I was at my parent's house probably playing with my 2-year older brother in the 2nd floor of a 2-story house. The house's staircase has a U-shaped design. I remember I wanted to go downstairs, not sure if to head to the kitchen and grab some water. My brother was following behind me. All the lights in the first floor were off and the staircase

Hatman in Mexico

By |November 14th, 2022|

When I was 8 years old, I was alone in my dad’s house in Mexico. It was daytime, and I was playing upstairs in the house by myself looking for toys. I have to say that people have always claimed that it was haunted to begin with. I have had other supernatural experiences there, along with other people. This time, however, was different. I vividly remember leaving my room to go find toys in the main hallway. I was feeling uneasy, and when I suddenly looked to my right he was there! The Hat Man was close to my face,

The Hat Man Woke Me

By |November 12th, 2022|

I was sound asleep, and then I woke suddenly.  I didn't think anything of it at first and then I looked to my right. Standing there was a tall cloaked man. His head nearly touched the ceiling. Inside his jacket, I saw what is comparable to a severely emaciated man. He looked to be made out of bone. The thing that stood out to me the most however was his hat. It covered what would have been this man’s eyes if he even had any to begin with. I kept trying to tell myself it was only a dream, but

The Hat Man Appeared In My Room

By |October 31st, 2022|

Three years ago, I was asleep and something woke me up. I saw a figure of a very tall man, about two meters, very thin, with a cape or suit and a large hat. He was bent over looking at me and I could feel how evil he was.  I rolled the other way quickly and turned on the light and there was nothing there. It was not a dream, something woke me up and I saw it very clearly. He was leaning over and looking at me and he didn't say anything or hear any noise. I sleep with
