It’s October, everyone, and that means people across the nation are gearing up for Halloween festivities. Houses will be decorated, costumes will be bought and candy will be devoured without prejudice.

So, to get us in the spooky mood, here are 10 awesome scary stories told in only two sentences (or less, in some cases). These, and many more, can be read over at reddit.

Also, I encourage you to flex your creative muscle and share your best two-sentence horror story in the comments below!


10. No thanks

I wake up and everything feels wrong; it’s too quiet outside. I look out the window and see everyone standing still, looking at my house. — golfmade

1. Parents beware
