Top five scary stories! (Books, creepy-pastas, anything!)

I’ve read a lot! I’m gonna stick with the ones that I actually like, rather than the really icky ones that have stuck with me.

1. Bloody Mary

This is at number one solely because it’s the creepy story I first remember, the one that started off my long-lived interest in spooky folk stories and other eerie things.

2. The Velvet Ribbon

The Velvet Ribbon was another early favorite of mine, so when it came up a few weeks ago I was really excited! I first read it in an anthology of scary stories I had back in grade school, the version I read had such a romantic atmosphere and I didn’t anticipate the ending at all!

3. The Cask of Amontillado

Poe has always been a major literary influence of mine, so picking just one story is difficult. The Cask of Amontillado is the one I come back to most often. It leaves readers with so many questions and relies on real, human horrors rather than the supernatural to be frightening.

4. Harold

I read this story in one of those “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” books, one of the ones release by Alvin Schwartz with the insanely frightening illustrations. “Harold” and “Oh, Susanna,” were probably the creepiest stories in there for me, but most of the time I had to keep any of the pictures in those books covered while I read.

5. The Mezzotint

M.R. James really was a pinnacle of good old British ghost stories. The Mezzotint (basically a picture made of many small inked dots and lines that was popular back in the 1700’s and 1800’s) and Lost Hearts are classic horror stories that have created many tropes still seen in horror movies and stories today.

You’re beautiful and sad. Just like your eyes. You’re like a song that I heard when I was a little kid but forgot I knew until I heard it again.
