The Shadow People (also known as shadow ghosts, shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men, or shadow folk) are supernatural shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen mostly in peripheral vision. They are commonly regarded in modern folklore and paranormal popular culture as malicious or evil spirits.
The Shadow People are typically described as black humanoid silhouettes with no discernible mouths, noses, or facial expressions; child-sized humanoids; or shapeless masses that sometimes change to human like form and featuring eyes that are either glowing or not discernable. Movement is said to be quick and disjointed, and some stories describe the visible outline of a cloak, or a 1930s style fedora hat.
Various authors and paranormal-themed web sites have drawn beliefs and speculation regarding The Shadow People from religion, parapsychology, metaphysics, cryptozoology, demonology, and the occult, proposing that Shadow People represent a thoughtform (egregore), ghost or demon that was created by events in which extreme physical/emotional stress/trauma has taken place, have been purposefully summoned through black magic or other occult practices, or are creatures who exist on a separate plane of existence that occasionally overlaps with ours.The Shadow people are also thought to be two-dimensional beings that look thin when turned to the side.
