the house has long since been sold, and none of us live in that small town anymore. I still wonder who that person was, where they went that night when they abandoned the car, why they followed us for nearly half an hour on those back roads, and why they kept coming back.

Well, as the cops took their car, they could easily let you know who it was based on the license plates, registration, etc. but I guess that would ruin your story.

I was disappointed with the ending of The Haunting of Hill House.  Kinda the same with The Haunting of Bly Manor, but it was neat to see Henry Thomas.  Mostly I just wanted to say that Victoria Pedretti is ridiculously hot, so much so that she even rocked the mom jeans she wore throughout Bly.

Some of these are good, some of these read like the 'reddit wanna-be writers club' submitted them.

Fair enough. But for my money, Amelia Eve STOLE that show.

I'm normally not one to judge a book by its cover, but naming a story "Untitled" doesn't exactly entice me to read it.

Since it's Jezebel, do all the scary stories end with the man getting the job?

I love Werner I'd listen to him recite the alphabet. He'd find a way to make it a harrowing tale

Agreed. I will say that the story that found its way off Reddit to a Netflix deal, My Wife and I bought a Ranch, was an enjoyable read.

If I were an SNL writer, I would pitch "Deep Thoughts with Werner Herzog".

Does that story that one Farker shared about the drive he took through a creepy, rural part of California and came across people lying in the middle of the road still get re-posted every Halloween?

I guess I'll find out this Saturday.

The "Twilight Zone" episodes that had a 'twist' ending?

CSB (take it or leave it): My wife has always been sensitive to "spooky" things. She'll talk about seeing or hearing things and I'll just go, "Yeah honey." My son, an extremely cynical young man, just agrees with her but rolls his eyes behind her back.

My mother-in-law lived with us for about 7 years starting right after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She stayed with us until the end and died in her bedroom this summer. A couple days after she died my wife and I went to buy me a new suit for the funeral. While I was finishing up my wife went out to the car. As soon as I opened the door she quickly said, "Do you smell it?" I didn't smell anything, just the regular car smell and told her. She said that she was sitting there crying and thinking of her mom when she suddenly felt a pressure on her shoulder and the smell of roses filled the car. She said it was overpowering, like the car was stuffed with flowers. Her mom loved roses and we usually kept fresh roses in her room.

About 2 days later my son came home for the funeral. He and my wife were out running errands and talking about my mother in law, trading stories and memories. Suddenly my son turned to his mom and said, "Mom, do you smell flowers?" Neither of us had said anything to him about what my wife smelt. She asked him what kind of flowers and he said, "I think they're roses, just like the ones that grandma..." and he stopped talking. My wife told him about her experience a couple days before. My son is very logical, a serious atheist, but this made him pause.

Chilling. And proof that Jesus rising from the dead wasn't that big of a deal.

I haven't seen that one.  The creepiest I can recall seeing myself was the story of the farker that was camping and woke up in the middle of the night to see a guy sitting in the dark, staring at one of the other tents for about a half hour, motionless.

I hated The Haunting of Hill House, because I love the book so much. The original movie is the closest adaptation, and even that could have done better, especially with the ending.

Yeah, I'll be avoiding that whole area forever now.

Finally a direct admission, let's get this sh*tty website on our Terrorists Organization lists.

I like the one about the vacant house with the toys in the attic.

I certainly hope it's fake fear. I haven't read a truly scary story in years. Same for horror movies, I'm just not afraid of them anymore. I wish I could still get scared*, I remember it being a fun feeling.

*excluding real world threats like Covid, my colon cancer, major financial debt, and other things that are not fun to be afraid of.

Npr played a story years ago about a couple who buy a home and find a passageway in the back of the pantry once.

That one gave me a shudder.

Fun fact:  Aubrey Plaza creeped him out while they were shooting that episode.  She asked him if he'd ever seen a ghost since, in her own words, "you know he's seen some shiat".  He got real quiet and would only say "I'm not going to talk about that" and walked away.

I knew I liked her for a reason. I'd love to have the singular honor of "Creeped Werner Herzog's Sh*t Right Out."
