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.

16. Seizure out of nowhere

“Nothing supernatural or creepy, but I had a grand mal seizure out of nowhere. Don’t have a history of neurological disorders to be clear. Got into my car and started hearing these loud whispers and started getting real dizzy … took the keys out of the ignition and ran back to the restaurant where my friends were at, and that’s the last thing I remember before waking up to a sternum rub from EMTs. Didn’t know who I was, where I was, or what the hell had happened. And there was blood everywhere.

Complete memory loss is absolutely terrifying.”

17. Sleep walking around the house

“When the first paranormal movie came out, I was still living with my mom. I saw it with my then boyfriend and was terrified. Later that night, I was in bed. I tossed and turned for about an hour too freaked out to sleep. Every little noise in the house got my heart thumping.

When I actually began to fade out, I heard something in the kitchen at the other end of the house. Then footsteps down the hall getting closer to me. Like someone was sliding their hand along the wall. Two seconds away from wetting myself, and my bedroom door opens. I screamed bloody murder. My mom has been sleep walking and was just as terrified as I was.”

18. Toys with a mind of their own

“My infant cousin lives with us and his toys will just go off by themselves in the night. I find them places he couldn’t have possibly put them.”

19. Mystery phone call

“When I was 8 years old, I was playing on the computer in my dads office. My dad was at a band practice that night, and my grandma was watching us while he was gone. The home phone rang and I picked up the desk phone;

Me: “Hello?”

Angry mystery man: “If you ever get that shit near my son again, I’ll fucking kill you”

Slowly hangs up phone and continues playing Commander Keen.”
