A newly married couple,
Billy and Mable, had bought a house in Maine. They disregarded
the stories told to them about the house by the realtor about the house being
haunted by an insane serial killer and moved in. Mable frequently complained about
the feeling that someone was touching her in the night, and Billy resolved to stay
up the whole night and see who, if anybody, was doing it.
True to his word, Billy stayed up the whole night. Around midnight, he was
gripped by the feeling of an overwhelming thirst. He went
downstairs to the kitchen to get a glass of water. Before he could get a glass, he
heard the most horrible screaming from Mable's room. Billy rushed upstairs and
screamed himself. Mable's dead body lay bleeding on the bed. Billy rushed
downstairs and called the police. Several nights later,
Billy was finally sleeping peacefully, until around midnight. Again feeling very thirsty,
Billy went downstairs and got a glass of water. He went upstairs and saw a lump in
the bed. He ran over and ripped off the covers; The ghost of Mable floated up above him.
She had an unholy light in her eyes, and the dark form of another man floated beside her.
In her hand, Mable held the biggest knife Billy had ever seen.
"Didn't you promise Billy? Didn't you promise? 'Till death do we part! You promised!"
Mable screamed, as she floated towards the frightened and paralyzed Billy.
A young couple out on a
date parked along an old country road to be alone. They were listening to the
car radio and talking. Suddenly the music was interrupted by a news bulletin.
"A convicted murderer has escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane.
The man was mutilated in a car wreck following a high-speed chase and is missing
his right hand. A temporary hook has been attached to his right arm, which will
make him easier to identify. The criminal's name is ..."
The boy turned the radio off. He leaned over to his girlfriend, expecting that
the frightening news flash would make her snuggle. Instead, she was so scared
that she wouldn't even let him get close to her.
"I'm afraid," she said. "Let's get out of here."
The boy tried to convince her that they were in no danger, but she refused to
listen. He decided that maybe she didn't like him as he had thought,
and was just using this as an excuse. The girl reached over and locked her door
as the boy angrily started the car.
Just at that moment, they heard a thud on the passenger side of the car.
The boy slammed the car into drive and spun out onto the road. The girl screamed
and held onto the boy as they sped off down the road. On the way back to town
they both calmed down, but the girl still held on so tightly that the boy
decided he was wrong about her after all. As they came closer and closer to her
house, he tried to think of a way to impress her.
They pulled up in front of the house and the boy said, "I'll make sure it's
safe first." He left the keys in the ignition but locked the door as he got out.
He came around to her side to politely open her door, like a hero.
For a long time he just stood there, looking down at the door. At first the
girl couldn't figure out what was wrong; then she realized that her door was
still locked. She smiled and unlocked it.
The boy still just stood there.
The girl looked puzzled and rolled down her window. Then she saw that the boy
was looking down at the door handle. She slowly looked down herself.
Hanging from the door handle was a bloody stainless steel hook!
While Ruth slept, a spider
crawled across her face. It stopped for several minutes on her left cheek, then
went on it's way.
"What is this red spot on my cheek?" she asked her mother the next morning.
"It looks like a spider bite", her mother said."It will go away, just don't
Soon the small red spot grew into a small red boil. "Look at it now," Ruth
said. "It's getting bigger." "That sometimes happens", her mother said. "It's
coming to a head."
In a few days the boil was even larger. "Look at it now", Ruth said. "It
hurts and it's ugly."
"We'll have the doctor look at it", her mother said.
"Maybe it's infected."
But the doctor could not see Ruth until the next day.
That night Ruth took a bath. As she soaked herself, the boil burst. Out poured
a swarm of tiny spiders from the eggs their mother had laid in her cheek!
As Jim Brand lay dying, his wife left him
with his nurse and went into the next room to rest. She sat in the dark
staring into the night. Suddenly Mrs. Brand saw headlights speeding up the
"Oh no" she thought. "I don't want visitors now, not now." But it wasn't a car
bringing a visitor. It was an old hearse with maybe a half dozen small men
hanging from the sides. At least, that's what it looked like.
The hearse screeched to a stop. The men jumped off and stared up at her, their
eyes glowing with a soft yellow light, like cats' eyes. She watched with horror
as they disappeared into the house.
An instant later they were back, lifting something into the hearse. Then they
drove off at high speed, wheels squealing, the gravel in the driveway flying
in all directions.
At that very moment, the nurse came in, shook Mrs. Brand and told her husband
A young man and his wife were on a trip
to visit his mother. Usually they arrived in time for supper. They had gotten
a late start, and now it was getting dark. They decided
to look for a place to stay overnight and go on in the morning.
Just off the road, they saw a small house in the woods. "Maybe they rent
rooms", the wife said. So they stopped to ask. An elderly man and woman came
to the door. They didn't rent rooms, they said. But they would be glad to
have them stay overnight as their guests. They had plenty of room, and they
would enjoy the company. The old woman made coffee, brought out some cake, and
the four of them talked for awhile. Then the young couple were taken to their
room. They explained that they wanted to pay for this, but the old man said he
would not accept any money.
The young couple got up early the next morning before their hosts had awakened.
On a table near the front door, they left an envelope with some money in it for
the room. Then they went on to the next town. They stopped at a restaurant
and had breakfast. When they told the owner where they had stayed, he was
shocked. "That can't be", he said. "That house burned to the ground ten years
ago, the old man and woman who lived there died in the fire."
The young couple could not believe it. So they went back to the house. Only now
there was no house. All they found was a burned-out shell. They stood staring
at the ruins trying to understand what had happened.
Then the woman started screaming! In the rubble was a badly burned table, on the table
was the envelope they had left there that morning!
Jerry was driving home late one night when
he saw a young lady waiting by a bus stop. He stopped his car and told her that
he didn't think the buses were running so late at night and offered her a ride.
The fall night air was getting chilly, so he took off his jacket and gave it to
her. Jerry found out that the girl's name was Mary and she was on her way home.
After an hours drive, they arrived at her home and he dropped her off by the
front door. Jerry said goodnight and went home himself.
The next day he remembered that Mary still had his jacket.
He drove to her house and knocked on the door, an old woman answered.
John told her about the ride he had given her daughter Mary, and had come back
to get the jacket he had lent her. The old woman looked very confused.
John noticed a picture of Mary on the fireplace mantel. He pointed to it and
told the old woman that that was the girl he had given a ride to.
With her voice
shaking, the old woman told Jerry that her daughter had been dead for many
years and was buried in a cemetery about an hours drive away from
Jerry ran to his car and drove to the cemetery....
