24 Incredibly Creepy Stories That Will Keep You Awake Tonight

If you know where to look, you can find creepy stories on Reddit that’ll scare the living hell out of you. Here are some of the eeriest ones you should challenge yourself to read alone in the dark.

9. Double murder in town

“I picked up a hitchhiker who was dressed like he worked road construction on my way to work early one morning. As we are driving through a small town there is a house all sectioned off with police tape and cops cars out front. The guy turns to me and says “There was a double murder there this morning…” and for that brief moment I almost had a heart attack. Just something about having a stranger say that in my car was so horrifying as if I expected him to admit to it and kill me right then and there. After that moment faded I laughed and told him how creepy that sounded and we both laughed about it. And he didn’t kill me so it ended well.”

10. My nightmare came true

“True story here, one time I had a really strange dream. I was laying in my bed and began to feel my body tingle as if something was crawling on me. Before I knew it I was covered in several ticks. I awoke trembling in fear so relieved it was a dream. But the story doesn’t end there.. The next day I went to my ex girlfriends house and at night she wanted to be romantic so we went to this local dam which was quite the journey but we sat atop of it overlooking the city. She began to feel paranoid as if someone was watching us so we quickly returned to the car. We drive away and make our way to her house my legs began to itch so I turned my car light on and saw 100s of ticks making their way up my legs to the rest of my body. I have no idea how I didn’t notice them but damn was I scared. We spent the next hour removing ticks and freaking the fuck out. I never dream of ticks never have since. Weirdest occurrence of my life.”

11. Hidden in the closet

“Had fallen asleep around 9pm and was awoken a little later by the sound of rumblings and glasses vibrating together, as I woke and lifted my head off the pillow I saw what I believed to be my girlfriends hands pull the walk in closet door shut as if she’d shut herself inside. I mumbled “What the fuck are you doing?” Just as I finished my sentence she walked through our bedroom door from the hallway. I remember feeling confused and asked her what the hell was going on., she told me there was an earthquake. Still weary I was all kinds of WTF? I eventually asked my other half “So who just went in the closet.” “Don’t say that!” I jumped off the bed and opened the closet door… nothing. Just a closet.

Honestly I’m by far very sceptical about supernatural happenings but I still to this day logically can’t explain what happened.

I creeped myself out by asking if maybe the earthquake happened to wake me up and stop whatever was about to happen to me, happen. Whatever was stood over me whilst I slept had to quickly escape. And I saw a glimpse of something I shouldn’t.
