44 True Creepy Stories That Will Make You Wonder What Else Is Out There

These stomach churning stories from Ask Reddit will ruin your appetite.

17. There’s a place here in Alabama in my town called “ Crybaby Hollow “ and it’s just this old bridge in the middle of a forest where a woman drowned her baby a good while ago ( can’t remember who exactly ) but I used to think it was just an old tale parents told their kids.

Well, my friend and I parked our car on the bridge and decided to see what was what. They say the spirit of the baby is still around and if you say “ Cry Baby Cry “ you’ll hear a baby scream in the distance, wanting for its mom.

We turn off the car and the lights and sit there with the windows rolled down and yell out those words. For 15 mins, nothing happened, not even a bug chirped. RIGHT when we were about to turn the key in the truck, my friend and I hear music from a child’s toy, it was a faint “ pop goes the weasel “ melody.

Next thing we know, we hear a baby wailing in the distance, and there is NO one that lives in that forest, it is all condemned and we are a good 20 miles from the nearest civilization. It’s not a cool of a story as the others, but it makes my blood run cold whenever I hear a baby cry now.

18. Our young niece died unexpectedly. We rushed over and stayed the night at the home to support family. I couldn’t sleep. My wife woke up a bit after midnight because she heard “footsteps”. Some time after calming her down a talking toy activated on it’s own in one of the boxes across the room. and she began to cry again. I found it in the pile of boxes with other toys, and brought it to the bed with us. It had batteries, but the switch was in the OFF position. We asked the deceased to answer yes by making it talk, and no with nothing. We spent almost an hour asking questions. It was very peaceful, and reassuring. At a point, it got to be too much, and my wife asked it to stop. It never activated again.

That was a few years back. There have been a few times since when we are having a deep conversation about her, and a random item will fall off the bar or a shelf on the other side of the room. Like someone bumped into to.

We stopped talking deeply about her almost a year ago.
