In honor of approaching Halloween, I present you with some short horror stories.
The background is: about a year ago, a Reddit user asked “What is the best horror story you can come up with in two sentences?” The response was tremendous and there are currently 3397 comments in that chain (admittedly, a lot of them are responses to the responses, so there are fewer than 3K stories, but still.)
Warning: these really are terrifying. Oof. Who needs sleep anyway?
