'There are plenty of stories of artificial intelligence gone wrong.
But recent reports from owners of Amazon Alexa devices are being called 'bone chillingly creepy.'
Some users say their Alexa-enabled gadgets start laughing totally unprompted.
One user reportedly tried to turn the lights off in their home but Alexa repeatedly turned the lights back on, eventually uttering an 'evil laugh,' according to BuzzFeed.
Another Echo Dot owner said they told Alexa to turn off their alarm in the morning and she responded by letting out a 'witch-like' laugh.
Alexa is programmed in many voice-activated devices with a preset laugh, which can be prompted by asking: 'Alexa, how do you laugh?'
But so far, it's unclear why Alexa is laughing even when users don't ask her to.
Amazon has yet to respond to inquiries requesting more information about the error, BuzzFeed said.
For now, more and more users say they're sleeping with one eye open next to their Alexa-enabled devices.
