Shadow people (also known as shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men, or shadow folk) are supernatural shadow-like figures of both modern folklore and paranormal popular culture that believers describe as dark humanoid forms or evasive specters that are seen mostly in peripheral vision.[2][3]

Authors like Rosemary Ellen Guiley,[4] Jason Offutt, and Heidi Hollis have helped popularize the concept through books, articles, and appearances on radio talk shows, such as Coast to Coast AM, that are devoted to paranormal subjects.[citation needed]
