Kids and their creepy Imaginary Friends

Today I was just browsing through stuff and I came across an article where some people shared experiences of kids around them saying creepy things about their imaginary friends. It was damn scary, just like something right out of "Amityville Horror" movie or something like "The Sixth Sense"... I din't expect that something of this kind is so common in real life, as well. At least I, or any person around me hasn't experienced anything this sort, so far (touchwood) And reading through the entire article, I couldn't help but look behind me to make sure if I din't have any imaginary, unseen people lurking around. Come on, I have lived in this house for more than 2 decades and never been scared of dark or any corner in the house, and yet reading such scary stuff still makes me wonder if I'm not alone. Have any of you experienced something eerie as a kid, or with any of the kids around you?

There were times I feel I'm not alone in the house but I didn't mind them, my youngest daughter said when she was a kid that she had an imaginary friend and she called it Barbie.

I've worked with several kids who had imaginary friends. Alison Gopnik, a University of California psychologist, says that children with imaginary friends turn out to be more creative adults.

I think that children just have the most amazingly vivid imaginations and piece together things that scare or worry them, which makes them come out with odd things. I have a friend whose little boy was for ever coming out with odd things. They were ever-so funny, once you got over the creepiest. I had imaginary friends when I was little but I don't think they were creepy or evil.
