One of the artist's drawings
I knew of an artist envied the perfect painting. He isolated himself in his apartment, only going outside for more paints, and brushes for the painting.

He needed more brushes because he snapped them in half out of anger. He was the best artist in the town of Winfield, but... He disagreed.

He thought his pieces were "inexcusable pieces of shit" and would Storm off and lock himself within his home.

When his family started calling repeatedly, he smashed his phone against the wall. This was only the start of it all.

He was starting to ignore his own needs. Food. Water. Hygiene. His hair was starting to fall out, and eyes bloodshot.

He started to draw.. Grotesque images. He drew hanging bodies, teens with slit necks, and even an image of a woman whose mouth is too wide to open, bugs spilling out.

Then the shivers started. He started shaking every few minutes, his mouth emitting a low groan once every other minute.

In 1986, Cokeville, Wyoming’s previous town marshal, David Young, and his wife Doris entered Cokeville Elementary School with guns and a homemade gasoline bomb.

The Youngs took over 160 students and teachers hostage and refused to release them until he received 300 million dollars and a phone call from the President. David Young often yelled, “This is a revolution!” during the situation.

When David left Doris and all of the students being held hostage in a single room, the gasoline bomb was set off and instantly killed her. David returned, saw his wife’s body, and killed himself with one of the guns.

What stunned police was that Doris and David were the only casualties despite the bomb detonating. Bomb experts could not find a reasonable explanation as to why the wing of the school was still standing and none of the hostages had been hurt.

The children claimed that angels told them to move to a corner of the room where the bomb wouldn’t hurt them. Others said they saw beautiful, white figures, their dead relatives assuring them that it’ll be okay, and heard disembodied voices. On one blackened wall, the outline...

I'm a new guy at this school, and I was told about the west staircase. I heard a beautiful devil lived there. It was kind of near my classroom, so like the brave fellow i was, I went up them. And I accidentally bumped into a man when I was going up the stairs.

He said, "Stupid human. How dare you bump into me? Did not anyone warn you, or are you just that stupid?" I looked up. A teenager with red eyes, and silver hair. Seems pretty normal to me. Whoa. He disappeared.

"Now you have to pay the price." A voice said in a raspy tone as a chill went up my spine. "Naagh!" I shouted as my voice echoed up the stairs, and my shirt was ripped. Then I saw a pair of scissors come out from his pocket, and a weird symbol above his eye appeared. Then he said again, "Two options: Die by scissors, or play with me." Play with- wait. What?

"I-I'll stay!" I said as my limbs started to shake. "Hmmph. Well said. Now for contract." He said as he drew in closer to my shoulder, and neck. "AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!" I screamed. He bit me! Just what is he?! Is he seriously a demon?!?! "Then he used his scissors and engraved two letters into my ankle, and bit my ankle all...

Annabelle is real.

One of the creepiest parts of the truly scary The Conjuring is the evil possessed doll Annabelle, who makes up the cornerstone of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s spooky museum of trophies. Director James Wan redesigned Annabelle for the movie, giving her a much more disturbing appearance, but in real life Annabelle was just your run of the mill Raggedy Ann doll.

Donna got Annabelle from her mother in 1970; mom bought the used doll at a hobby store. Donna was a college student at the time, and living with a roommate named Angie, and at first neither thought the doll was anything special. But over time they noticed Annabelle seemed to move on her own; at first it was really subtle, just changes in position, the kinds of things that could be written off as the doll being jostled. But the movement increased, and within a few weeks it seemed to become fully mobile. The girls would leave the apartment with Annabelle on Donna’s bed and return home to find it on the couch.

Helena's death of course was forgotten, but the curse she had sent upon the village people would soon begin it's deadly rampage for death and revenge.
Many people in the village grew ill, they believed it was due to the food. They stopped eating but more and more people began to grow ill.
The disease began with pains, agonizing pains in the chest which no amount of medicine could cure. If you could deal with the pain then you would then suffer extreme fever and vomiting. Many died from the vomiting alone.
As the disease spread more and more people began to try to flee the village. Only to carry it with them and infect more people.
There was however a woman who was immune to the disease. Many believed she was God's angel sent down to cure them all. The woman who was pregnant was kept safe in a church, by keeping her and her baby safe she could save the village.
The woman gave birth to a boy, but died shortly afterwards. The boy was named Sicuro meaning " safe" in Italian. He too was born immune to the disease.

It all began with a child.
The child was a little boy, such a sweet little boy with bright blue eyes and an angelic smile.
The child lived in a small village with his lonely mother, bitter at the death of her daughter who was a stillborn. She vented her frustrations at anyone who dare come near. She loved her son dearly and vowed to protect him and love him until the end of time. He was after all, all she had left in the world.

Helena was the village idiot. She spoke nonsense and was isolated throughout the village.
She grew attached to the sweet little boy who she believed to be a gift from God. He was not affected by the villagers opinion of Helena and considered her a friend.
Due to lack of medical science and cleanliness at the time the boy grew ill. Doctors alike attempted to save the boy but his illness only got worse as time progressed.
The child died in his sleep.
The villagers mourned the death of the boy and grew angry. They believed it was Helena who had caused the child's death as he had been in contact with her, when this rumour spread to his mother she wanted revenge.

This is TRUE. It really happened. I am younger than 14...
Last year on my brother's birthday, we went out to eat to mancy's (expensive) to eat.
Right away when I walked in, I felt this very weird vibe. Something just STRUCK my heart and dropped it. When we went out into ANOTHER door, I saw this clown statue... it gave me an even deeper vibe in my heart. Our waitress sat us down at a table. When I looked over, I saw several painting surrounding the entire room. They were all creepy. One picture had a little girl sitting down in a dark room with a man looking at her throughout a window. Another picture had a clown laughing with something in his hand. Another picture had a woman with two possessed looking kids, she had a bible with her as if she were reading it to them.
I cant remember any other pictures, I don't know why because I have GREAT memory. (Even when I was a baby) so I saw something walking upstairs. And no one goes upstairs. I heard footsteps above me but no one was there. Our light was blinking and moving.... I felt a slight breeze alot.

Angela and I rushed to the window - I know,a really bad move when there's a storm outside.We just wanted to see if anything got hit by the thounder cause it was very close.But that wasn't what we saw - a person was standing out in the rain! Wait,no! An old person - judging on the crunched back and slow movments.But what was he or she doing in my back yard in such a storm?! Our gate in 2 meters high! An old person could never get over that!At that moment,Emma and Dianne entered the room "What you lookin' at?" asked Emma and both girls got closer to the window just to see a lightning hitting right in fornt of the person.We screamed and jumped away from the window.Dianne and I ran down the stairs and out in the rain.We were thinking we'd find a dead body but instead...Nothing!

I am not sure why I am writing this down.I guess I just felt like it, telling my story.It was years ago and although it was on some papers and local news, the story gradually faded and got forgotten by everyone. Everyone but me, and I know to this day that what people heard was not the true story.Of course, even then as a small child I knew that telling it would only do more harm to me than good, I would be called crazy and they wouldn't even try to protect me from something that they would call the ravings of a demented little girl.
Ten years have passed since, I was a quiet kid, barely six years old and even with my childish mind I knew something was wrong. All kids fear the dark, think that there is some kind of monster hiding under their bed if they dare step down at the dead of night, their little hearts racing when they think they saw an unnatural shadow moving with the corner of their eye.However it was different for me, I could always sense a presence, I knew something was there, and it was there for me. From the moment I was born, lurking, watching me and reaching for me, getting closer and closer.But it was about this age that things started getting worse.The...

I don't know how I got myself into this mess, then again I normally don't know how I get myself into a lot of things. My name is Corie Lynn, I am seventeen years old, and I shouldn't be alive. I live in a small town called hicksburg and I live with my mother, my step father, younger brother, and pet dog. Anyway, It all started ever since we moved into this new house. It didn't look as old as we soon found out it to be. It looked as if the home was just built.

"Corie help your brother with the boxes before he drops them!" my mother yelled to me. I sighed and got out of the car fixing my jean shorts. Seeing he was about to drop one I ran over and tripped. Luckily I caught the box but on the un lucky side I skinned my knees and a little bit of my legs. I winced in pain.

"You ok sis?!" he asked looking down at me in shock.

"I'm fine Luke." I say standing holding the box close to my chest looking down at him. "Just be lucky you didn't drop my art supplies otherwise I woulda opened a can of kick ass on you." I say poking his nose with my pointer finger then walking inside with the box.

I read this story from a book. I don't own it.

There was a little German girl named Gretta she had white blond hair brilliant gold eyes. And most importantly long teeth. She was a transfer student to America. But once there she did something she shouldn't have done. She fell in love. In love with a boy that already had a lover. Which grew a rivalry between Gretta and Brittany.
Then the play came. Gretta got to be Cinderella while Brittany was a stepsister. The boy wanted Gretta to stay for the party after the performance but she said she couldn't stay up past midnight. Overhearing this Brittany changed all the clocks back an hour and told Gretta they would tell her when it was 11 so the party went well until it was 12 ( or 11 in Brittany's case. And Gretta felt strange and asked someone the time and she said 12:00. Gretta screamed as her face turned hideously like a dog's then the Gore began.
The police found nothing but a shoe on a stair like a sick momento of Cinderella. But there was no problem finding the foot. Brittany's foot was snug inside.

As I look at you after you ask the question, I look down upon the grave sighing sorrowfully,
"My name is Zachery," I answer, "my parents live around here, if you need anything just let me know."
"cool," Is the only thing you think of as a response, then you think hard and say, "You just moved here?" I don't reply for I'm about to leave the graveyard, and when you look over you see me get hit by a car, "Oh my god!" You shriek out but when you look, you see no body, no blood, nothing, as if my body disappeared, and then you slip from the grave you were sitting on to see it say Here lies Zachery Hopper, died december 28 2000. and you start to feel, dizzy, like you feel something stabbed you, and you see nothing but black and my grave when you die.

Chapter 1

We were all sitting by a campfire at Camp Terry where me and my friends were the only ones awake. there names were Jacob, Susan, Micheal, Tori, and Xavier. My name is Taylor. We all heard a scream coming from the forest. We weren't allowed to go but we didn't want to leave anyone hurt in the forest so we all ran into the forest but we didn't realize at the time what we were getting into.

Chapter 2

Me, Jacob and Tori decided to go look for the person that had screamed on the left side of the forest and Susan, Micheal, and Xavier look on the right side of the forest. We set off to look for the person who had screamed and then saw a shadowy figure behind a tree but hid behind it before I could identify it. "Did you guys see that?" I said. "Yeah I did." Tori said then she ran off looking for the shadow figure. Me and Jacob stood in silence then heard Tori scream in terror. I ran the path Tori took to see her getting dragged kicking and screaming into a cave by none other than the dark figure that I saw earlier.

There was an old couple who had hired a new maid to help around their house. The wife had a huge doll collection, and the maid was expected to dust them once a week. So once a week the maid walked into the room where the dolls were stored and looked at them in disgust. She hated dolls. While she was dusting, she came across a particularly strange doll. It was a talking doll and it had a cord in the back. The maid was intrested and pulled the cord. The doll said, “Hello.” The maid pulled the cord again. “I love my momma”, said the doll. The maid put the doll back and continued cleaning.
A few weeks later, while dusting off the dolls, the maid accidently knocked a doll over. It shattered as soon as it hit the ground. The old woman heard the sound and went to investigate. When she walked into the room and saw her shattered doll, a very sad look came across her face. The maid saw this quickly and said, “I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to break her. I won’t do it again.” The old woman looked down at her sad, broken doll and told the maid that she could only keep her job if she promised to be extra careful around the dolls. The maid agreed.

A man came to a hotel late one night, in desperate need of rest. "OK, here's your key, and dont lose it. And what ever you do, DO NOT LOOK IN ROOM 101." The man walked away, silently giggling. When he got to his room, he said " Ha, why not? It's just a room!" Next morning. He went around the hotel, trying to memorize where the rooms were. Then, he found room 101. "Might as well!" He tried to open the door but it was locked, so he looked through the key hole. It was abandoned, stains everywhere. There was a dead corpse of a woman, very pale, sitting on the chair. This frightened him and he sstayed in his room for the rest of the day. They next day, he did the same. But this time, there was something red over the keyhole. He figured whoever lived there put something red over it so he couldn't see anything. He was wondering why the room was forbidden so he went to the desk woman who was given him the warning. "You looked? Your loss. But, many years ago. A man killed his woman to retrieve her fortunes. He left the body in there to rot. We found it and just locked the door. The woman's corpse was very pale. Her eyes were missing, all that was left was a pool of red where they were."

One eerie night, A girl 17 year old girl named Alice arose from her bed, cotton-mouthed. She quietly got out of bed, careful not to wake her little brother, and went down stairs to the kitchen. She got a glass of water and sat at the table, in the dark room, with small rays of light shining in. She stared outside, sipping on her water. Then she noticed something, the trees, they, were moving. She was startled to see this, because it was not windy. Then, it formed a face. The face of a beautiful woman. She then heard a faint voice coming from outside. " I will watch you from the scyamore trees." Then she rubbed her eyes and looked at the trees again. Nothing. Regular trees.

IN THE MORNING

"It... was frightening. Do you think I'm crazy?" Her mom sat there, looking guilty. "I...I.. should've told you. She stared at her mother. "When we were married, my sister was very much in love with your dad. But when we got married, she became suicidal and cut her legs off right under the scyamore trees. She left a letter. We've never opened it, but you can." She handed her the letter. Alice slowly opened it and read it aloud.

Listen to the podcast

She commandeered the room in the basement of her dorm as soon as she realized she would have to pull an all-nighter in order to prepare for tomorrow’s final exam. Her roommate, Jenna, liked to get to bed early, so she packed up everything she thought she would need and went downstairs to study . . . and study . . . and study some more. It was two o’clock, when she realized that she’d left one of the textbooks upstairs on her bed. With a dramatic sigh, she rose, and climbed the stairs slowly to her third-floor dorm room.
The lights were dim in the long hallway, and the old boards creaked under her weary tread. She reached her room and turned the handle as softly as she could, pushing the door open just enough to slip inside, so that the hall lights wouldn’t wake her roommate.

The room was filled with a strange, metallic smell. She frowned a bit, her arms breaking out into chills. There was a strange feeling of malice in the room, as if a malevolent gaze were fixed upon her. It was a mind trick; the all-nighter was catching up with her.

A Pennsylvania Ghost Story

retold by S.E. Schlosser



Susan and Ned were driving through a wooded empty section of highway. Lightning flashed, thunder roared, the sky went dark in the torrential downpour.
“We’d better stop,” said Susan.
Ned nodded his head in agreement. He stepped on the brake, and suddenly the car started to slide on the slick pavement. They plunged off the road and slid to a halt at the bottom of an incline.
Pale and shaking, Ned quickly turned to check if Susan was all right. When she nodded, Ned relaxed and looked through the rain soaked windows.
“I’m going to see how bad it is,” he told Susan, and when out into the storm. She saw his blurry figure in the headlight, walking around the front of the car. A moment later, he jumped in beside her, soaking wet.
“The car’s not badly damaged, but we’re wheel-deep in mud,” he said. “I’m going to have to go for help.”
