Our love of scary shorts has been around for a while. One of the earliest ones we found was from the 1940s, by a man named Fredric Brown. It goes like this:
“The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door…”
Well, we can tell you they’ve gotten quite a bit scarier since then!!!
“Don’t be scared of the monsters, just look for them. Look to your left, to your right, under your bed, behind your dresser, in your closet but never look up, she hates being seen.”
“The grinning face stared at me from the darkness beyond my bedroom window. I live on the 14th floor.”
“I woke up to hear knocking on glass. At first, I thought it was the window until I heard it come from the mirror again.”
“The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06, I heard my closet door creak open.”
“Carol never wore her safety goggles. Now she doesn’t need to.”
“When I finally grabbed her in the darkness, I swam back to the surface. It never occurred to me how fast the ice could freeze over.”
“After working a hard day, I came home to see my girlfriend cradling our child. I didn’t know which was more frightening, seeing my dead girlfriend and stillborn child, or knowing that someone broke into my apartment to place them there.”
“Being buried alive was bad enough. Realizing I wasn’t alone in my own grave was worse.”
“‘You were my mommy before the last time we died too,’ your daughter tells you in a booming sing-song voice as she adjusts another puzzle piece. The light in her eyes seems to go out a moment later, as she whispers to you, ‘it’s going to be much more painful this time.'”
“The doctors told the amputee he might experience a phantom limb from time to time. Nobody prepared him for the moments though, when he felt cold fingers brush across his phantom hand.”READ MORE A Christmas Story (Times Two)
