Back in the beginning of November, we reported on the truly horrifying photos Adam Ellis captured of Dear David, the dead boy haunting his NYC apartment. And now, unfortunately, there is even more chilling photographic evidence of Dear David. We think Ellis needs to gtfo of there STAT!
When we last heard from Ellis, he had just discovered an old child-size shoe and a marble in the mysterious hatch above his staircase. Yes, we admit it was odd that he found a child’s shoe, of all things, when a dead child’s ghost has supposedly taken up residence in his house. But apparently, nothing too strange happened with the objects because we haven’t heard from Ellis since he found them on November 28th.
But Ellis returned to Twitter yesterday, December 12th, to fill us in on his most recent Dear David run-in — and WOW is it terrifying! He quickly summed up the past few weeks, telling us that he hasn’t been sleeping well, he’s been having odd dreams, and that he’s been experiencing bouts of dizziness.
He thought that finding the objects in the attic had put an end to Dear David. Perhaps they validated his existence and therefore David didn’t need to stick around.
But no. Ellis thought wrong.
But last week something started to happen. Late on Wednesday, I woke up with a start and felt something strange, like something had just been watching me. I turned on the light but I was alone.— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
Ellis explained that he recently sensed a feeling of “tangible badness,” which is a feeling he often gets when he’s about to have a Dear David experience. He describes it as a “palpable sense of malice.”
There's what I felt that night. Malice. Dread. But still, I was alone. And I was so tired, I wound up just going back to sleep. I've been so exhausted recently I can barely function.— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
The next night, he awoke and felt the same thing. So he figured he’d set up the nanny cam — remember the nanny cam? It captured the chair rocking and the turtle shell falling off the wall in one of the previous Dear David episodes.
Unfortunately, the nanny cam’s cord didn’t reach his bedroom. So Ellis “improvised.”
I downloaded an app that takes a photo every 60 seconds and set my phone on top of a bookcase (it's almost 7 feet tall, so it had a pretty good view of my bed and the surrounding room). Then I went to sleep.— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
Hours later, Ellis experienced the same “bad feeling” phenomenon and felt as though he was being watched. He suddenly awoke and ran to his phone. There were about 350 photos to scroll through. Most of them just showed Ellis sleeping in the dimly-lit bedroom.
But then, David appeared.
In the next photo, from a minute later, he seems to be staring straight up at the ceiling? Just staring. pic.twitter.com/MoW6CPcKoD— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
Then he appears to collapse on the chair. The next dozen photos are all the same. He's completely lifeless. At first I'd thought he was dead, which obviously doesn't make any sense. I looked over at the chair half expecting him to still be there but it was empty. pic.twitter.com/yA5MltIp0i— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
David then disappeared from about 15 of the photos. But he returned and was standing on the bed, mere inches away from sleeping Ellis.
He was on the bed. Inches from me, staring down at me sleeping. pic.twitter.com/MOtQEgTLma— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
The next one was worse. In the next photo, he's staring right at the camera. pic.twitter.com/WhmuAr9DcQ— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
This is the last photo that Ellis’s phone captured —
Here's the final photo on the scroll. pic.twitter.com/LkkpiEbBnr— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) December 13, 2017
THAT. IS. HAIR. PEOPLE.
Ellis is at a loss for words, he wrote in another tweet. Honestly, so are we. We’re still on the fence as to whether the Dear David saga is real or just an amazing social experiment. But either way, we’re feeling creeped out AF and intrigued to see what Dear David attempts to do next.
