Once in awhile, everyone needs to hear a good, scary story. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about gathering:

  • around a campfire,
  • blankets over shoulders,
  • eating s’mores and listening to a story that is sure to keep you up at night.

Some people hate it while others absolutely love it.

 

These stories some people happen to even believe them and others just take it as some fairy tale out of a novel.

1. If you get spooked out easily then this might be a little too much for you. If you LOVE spooking others, then these stories are perfect. Redditors submitted some pretty creepy stories that may or may not be true but are sure to give shivers. One Redditor wrote, “I used to live in a small building downtown. There was this guy in the apartment right over mine. He mostly kept to himself. Around midnight though, there was frequently a strange noise that got on my nerves. It was little bumping sounds going on and on. After a few days, I realized the pattern was always the same. Several years later I was helping my daughter with morse codes for school. She knocked on the table with her knuckles and a shiver went down my spine. I recognized that exact pattern. I asked her what it meant and she said, “It’s the one to call for help.” (conffra).

2. “A knock at my front door wakes me up. It’s way past midnight and I’m lying on the sofa with the TV on. The house is dark and I’m alone. Looking out the window, I see nothing but a full moon. I get up and head towards the front door. There’s no one there. I turn off the TV, close the window and head to bed” (morasyid).

3. I think this story is pretty creepy. Julia was a clever kid who figured out that she had some control over her parents. She would “fake” being scared and her parents would automatically run into her room. One night, Julia couldn’t take it anymore and told her dad that’s it’s funny they always believe her. Her dad responded, “Once, just once, we didn’t believe your brother”. Julia is an only child” (IPostAtMidnight).

4. “My boyfriend and I bought an old house. I’m on wallpaper removal duty. Under a corner section of the paper in every room are a person’s name and a date. I decided to Google the names and learned that all of them were names of missing people. A crime scene team was sent to us. One tech said, “Ma’am, where’s the material you removed from the walls already? This isn’t wallpaper you were removing.” (BatoutofHell821).

5. “This story doesn’t let me sleep at night. An angel has an eye on the past, present, and future. Locals assembled to watch the angel open its eye to the past and it cried so much, it’s eye rotted away. Then it opened its eye to the present, seeing wars and famine…he sewed his eye shut. Then he opened his eye to the future…he swung his hand up and gouged his eye out” (manen_lyset).
