The Hat Man

The Hat Man, is a reported supernatural being that appears as a darkened humanoid silhouette or living shadow wearing a large, broad-rimmed hat and which delights in scaring people usually at night. The Hat Man is an example of modern folklore and legend and like the Shadowman legends can be traced back to an episode of the t.v. series The Twilight Zone titled The Shadow Man. Belief in the Hat Man, like belief in the Shadowman, possibly arose when individuals confused a work of fiction as being non-fiction, and subsequently spread such belief to others.

@ Meko St. Clair,

No he is not. He is an urban legend that was taken from an episode of The Twilight Zone in the 80s.

I don't know what you claim to have seen but it wasn't the Hat Man because the Hat Man doesn't exist.

I recall standing at the foot of my mothers bed within 2 weeks before she died and we were having a conversation. Suddenly she looked to my immediate left (her right) and got a scared and upset look on her face. I looked over to see what she staring at, but I saw nothing. She asked me in a scared voice, "Did you see him?" When I asked who I was supposed to see, she said, "The dark man in the hat."

I dismissed it at the time, but after she died, I started looking online and found out that others have seen what she did.

I had 3 experiences with the hat man from 86 to the year 2001.The first time iwas on my couch with my boyfriend we both saw him with the broad rimmed hat and cape no face.He walked from my bedroom across the hall to the second bedroom.My boyfriend moved me out that night..we both had a feeling of dread.Second time I was in a hotel room staying overnight as I was on a vacation .I was sleeping and felt someone staring at me a few inches from my face it was the same hat man with no face.When I opened my eyes he spun around and disappeared.Third time I was asleep in my room of my new condo again felt someone staring at me ,opened my eyes and there he was at the foot of my bed leaning on the dresser looking at me.After these experiences I got very sick for a long time ended up having a liver transplant.I got heavily involved with my spiritual side and prayed continually to God to help me get well.And I did.I have never again seen the Hat Man

Ok. Tonight is the first time Ive ever read anything on this and I have seen maybe 8 episodes of the twilight some.
Tonight is July 1680th 2016
Back in the summer of 95 I was supposed to sleep in a tent in my backyard of suburban greece N.Y
It rained so my father would not let me but pitched the tent in the living room about 5 feet from the giant sliding glass door. Me laying in the tent all lights are off am playing sent men vs transformers and startled as lightning strikes. Just outside the glass door I see the iconic garden silhouette of the man with the large brimed hat leaning casually with one leg bent. Obviously being 5 years old at the time was scared and ran to my dad who as my dad takes me and shows me there is nothing there. It has always been a thought of mine as to what I saw... Cause I know I saw somthing there. I have never seen anything that wasn't there again in my life. I'm not saying the man in the hat is real. Nor am I saying he is fake. This is just my take of somthing similar that I have never been able to explain. My best friend lives around the corner from that house i see it once a week. And whenever i do i see that silhouette leaning against the railing light up from the lightning.
