    Screams Are Closer Than They Appear

    Screams Are Closer Than They Appear

    When sirens splinter the night, do you go toward the noise? Or take it as a sign to run away? Sounds can be warnings of dangers near it, or waiting for you to flee towards where it waits around the next corner...closer than you might think. First, buzz is that there is a new girl at school. Next, that sound you hear is a catchy jingle beckoning to be heard. After that, we hear skittering scratching away in the night. And finally, the cries of children call for you in a park late at night.

    Safety NEVER Guaranteed

    Safety NEVER Guaranteed

    As children we are given many cautionary phrases to ensure our safety. "Don't talk to strangers. Always lock the door. Never travel alone. Be home before dark." As well meaning and sound as those warnings are, like with the characters in today's stories, within each of us is the need to answer that burning question..."Why not?" First, we're told never to respond when called at night. Next, we're instructed to never crash a house party. After that, we're told to take the long way and never take the shortcut. And finally, we're begged to never respond to the voices that whisper to us.

    Ghosts in the Machine

    Ghosts in the Machine

    Technology is our constant companion, for some it is a salve for superstitions and fears of the dark. But this Big Brother with infinite knowledge has you fooled. Ghosts in the machine are real. And while you can choose to not enter a haunted house, the entities in these stories have already been invited into your home within the very devices meant to entertain you. First, some virtual reality frights are more real than we would like them to be. Next, Polybius, a video game of urban legend, is given new life, much to the woe of its players. After that, nighttime video binging will lead us to eerie prophecies. And finally, pushing shuffle play will have dire consequences.

    Terrifying Stalkers

    Terrifying Stalkers

    Danger stalks in many forms. It can pursue you, it can become you, and it can possess you. The sinking feeling of inescapable threats can drag you down until the tether is severed. Terrifying stalkers embody various forms of fear in the stories: First, we try to get away from it all with a father daughter trip in the mountains. Next, a new family encounters a figure from the past. Then, a sleepover takes a mother back to her childhood memories that beg to be remembered. Finally, a young woman shares her story of possession at just 4 years old.

    Happy Haunted Holidays

    Happy Haunted Holidays

    The holidays are a time to gather your loved ones close with scary ghost stories to remember the past, look to the future, and reflect on the gift of the present. Time gives gifts in different forms. Often, they're material, other times they're wrapped in lessons, and sometimes they're spectral anomalies. First, we will be haunted by mysterious coins on Christmas. Next, in the holiday of now, a gorgeous woman receives an unexpected gift. Then, we look to the future where a voice cries out to the present. Finally, we’ll re-live a tragic past life during the Winter War.

    Friend or Foe?

    Friend or Foe?

    In today's stories, we venture into familiar locations like a bar in Texas and a subway stop in Japan. Familiar places that all of us can hold both friends...and foes alike. Come close and listen to these harrowing tales of friendship and betrayal. First, we follow a detective on a legendary case into the backwoods of Texas. Next, we’ll buy our first used car, and receive all of the “baggage” that comes with it. After that, a birthday toy that is much more than it seems. And finally, we’ll pass along a grisly story that bears repeating.
