This is part five in the By the Fire's Light series. Mira Grolinsky sat at her desk in the hotel room sorting through stacks of paper. A biographer by trade, she was used to gathering large amounts of information and then synthesizing it into one coherent...

It was nearing midnight, and the air was rapidly cooling. It was silent but for the few cars passing by, and the wind rustling trees. I looked around outside once more before shutting the front door and bolting it. I turned off the hall light...

"Do you hear it? The Creep upon my cellar stairs? I lie awake tonight with fright in my heart and a creep upon my cellar stairs," the young girl muttered into the belly of her teddy bear. A fearful groan erupted as she heard it once...

This is the fourth entry in the By the Fire's Light series. β€œSo,” Jared said, a sneer on his face. β€œI suppose you’ve come to find out why I did it.” Connor looked into Jared’s face, at the sneer, the hate. He looked into Jared’s eyes, and...

Soft sunlight glints off rides and merry go rounds, merry jingles floating through the air. The bustle of the carnival goes on around you as you stroll along, enjoying the day. It's breezy, yet the breeze is warm and butter-soft, gently wrapping your soft silk dress...

The tipper tapper of a finger echoes through the small dark room. Sometimes even whispers bounce off the walls from other rooms, whispers that do not make sense to me. I would hear things like, "Stop it, he'll see us" and "Quickly, don't trust him" or just the moans of...

Introduction I had always questioned whether or not I truly believed in the paranormal, and sometimes I wished that I would have stayed strictly to my stubborn attitude. However, that was not the case a month ago....

Remember a few months ago when I asked for your favorite creepy video games? I'd mentioned that I planned to do similar posts for books, movies, and maybe even television shows and music - and since July means that a lot of you have the free time of summer break to spend watching creepy movies, that's what we'll talk about this month. Just like last time: As people suggest their favorites, I’ll turn this OP into a master list of the community’s favorite spooky movies (with links to download or buy said games if possible). Thanks for the help, and have fun! For the most part, I'll be linking to the Amazon instant video version when possible (our ref link is included, so as always - if you decide to purchase/stream any of these movies via these links, thank you so much!) to make it easier for those of you who want immediate gratification. For series, I am linking the sequels by their numerical position in the series, not their title. This is just to make the list cleaner and easier to navigate since some of these series have quite a few entries under their belts! For movies that are remakes of, for example, Asian horror, I will list the two versions side by side (assuming that I'm aware of the remake/original status, of course). I will usually put the English name first, since that's how most people are calling them in the comments. Please click the "read more" button to see the full list below the cut!

I have to get out. The walls, twisted rebar and cracked concrete, seemed to stretch on forever. I can't remember where I am, why I came to be here; I can't even remember my last name. All I know is that if I get out, I...

William Grant is wandering through the avenues of Florence, Italy with his beautiful girlfriend named Isabella. They giggle to each other softly and secretly, passing under the ancient arches and crumbling cathedrals of the narrow and romantic street. They exchange passionate kisses and sly glances,...

I’m pretty bad about changing light bulbs. If there’s any possible way I can put it off, I will. There’s probably some psychoanalytical explanation for it, dating back to when I was a little girl and I grabbed one while it was still hot,...
