Top 10 Spooky Halloween Short Stories


Halloween is just around the corner and I am sure we are all getting ready for the spooky holiday deciding on costumes, decorations and parties. My little one finally made up his mind to dress up as Iron Man (yea, itโ€™s always one of the avengers for him!).

We are having a Halloween bash at work on Friday and we are all expected to dress up. The ones who donโ€™t dress up have to contribute towards the gift for the winners of the best costumes! This means that we are all going to dress up! ๐Ÿ˜€

While exploring the online shopping world for costumes, I stumbled upon some websites that featured scary, spooky Halloween stories. It was really interesting to read the different stories and the fact that it was super short (within a few sentences) made it spookier; I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it with you lovely people (why should I be the only one sleeping with the lights on!?) ๐Ÿ˜‰

In that spirit (pun intended!) I am jotting down the Top 10 super short spooky stories shared on the internet.

  1. Momโ€™s home!

baby monitor

A father is laying in bed after just waking up, he grabs the baby monitor and walks to his desk in his office at home, he has his baby on the baby monitor and hears his wife singing to her, he cracks a smile as he hears his wife โ€œGo to sleepโ€ฆ go to sleepโ€ฆโ€ when suddenly the front door opens up and his wife comes in with groceries.

  1. Solo Camping Trip


A woman survivalist and trained outdoors guide loves to go solo camping. She returns home after 2 weeks of being in the bush and not seeing a single soul. Then she develops her disposable camera film to find a roll of film with numerous pictures of her sleeping at night, on different nights. She has never gone camping or hiking since.

  1. The monster under my bed


I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, โ€œDaddy check for monsters under my bed.โ€ I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, โ€œDaddy thereโ€™s somebody on my bed.โ€

  1. Mom is calling!


You hear your mom calling you into the kitchen. As you are heading down the stairs you hear a whisper from the closet saying โ€œDonโ€™t go down there honey, I heard it too.โ€

  1. So I lost my phoneโ€ฆ

Last night a friend rushed me out of the house to catch the opening act at a local barโ€™s music night. After a few drinks I realized my phone wasnโ€™t in my pocket. I checked the table we were sitting at, the bar, the bathrooms, and after no luck I used my friendโ€™s phone to call mine.

After two rings someone answered, gave out a low raspy giggle, and hung up. They didnโ€™t answer again. I eventually gave it up as a lost cause and headed home.

I found my phone laying on my night stand, right where I left it.

  1. The Alarm Clock


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.

  1. The Dream


I was having a pleasant dream when what sounded like hammering woke me. After that, I could barely hear the muffled sound of dirt covering the coffin over my own screams.

  1. Angel of Death

My grandmother told me that it was a gift to see the angel of death in front of people’s houses, to know that he’d be collecting someone there soon. I thought it was a gift too, up until the day I began to see it in front of every house.

  1. You were my mommy!


“You were my mommy before the last time we died too,” your daughter tells you in a boomingly 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.”

  1. I can hear you!


When I was first able to hear again I would often talk to myself when I was alone, just to enjoy the sound in my ears. I stopped shortly after, once I started hearing replies to my conversations.

Did the stories spook you out? Well, it certainly creeped me out. I now sleep with a night lamp on! Know of any other spooky stories, share them here on the comments, I would love to know, even if it is going to spook the crap out of me! ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Halloween everyone!
