Two Sentence Horror Stories


Eva Vang, Author

Two Sentence Horror Stories is an anthology series inspired by the popular viral storytelling trend that tells a horror story using only two sentences. TW: If you get scared easily, if you’re alone, or if you have a week stomach, please do not finish reading this article.

  • I decided to kill off a few characters in the book I’m writing. It would definitely spice up my autobiography a little.
  • “I forgot to grab something, I’ll be right back,” said mom. As she rounded the corner, out of sight, the cashier began ringing up our groceries.
  • I was video chatting and dropped my phone on the floor, and I picked it up, my significant other’s face changed. He held his hands to his lips, as if asking me to be quiet, and to my horror he wrote, “There’s a man under your bed.”
  • The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long, rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06 – I heard my closet door creak open.
  • My family can all remember their past lives. One day I told my son I was a girl who was murdered to which he grinned and responded, “What are the odds we’d meet again?”
  • Being buried alive was bad enough. Realizing I wasn’t alone in my own grave was worse.
  • My blind date texted that he’d finally arrived, and was sorry for being 15 minutes late to pick me up. The issue was, we’d already been driving for 10 minutes.
  • People always ask how many kids come to my house for trick-or-treating. None of them ever ask how many leave.
  • I kept hearing a strange giggle coming from my TV, regardless of what channel or volume it was on. I never thought to check behind the TV.
  • After the psychic told Mike that he would die of a heart attack, he picked up biking and would do five mile rides into town every weekend. But when a car suddenly swerved, coming right at him with an old man slumped over the steering wheel – he realized with final clarity that it wasn’t his heart attack she’d meant.
  • I recently taught myself Morse code, but I wish I hadn’t. Now the birds peck at my window, warning me that “it’s coming.”
  • My sister says that mommy killed her. Mommy says that I don’t have a sister.
  • I awoke to the sound of the baby monitor crackling with a voice comforting my firstborn child. As I adjusted to a new position, my arm brushed against my wife, sleeping next to me.
  • I always thought my cat had a staring problem – she always seemed fixated on my face. Until one day, when I realized that she was always looking just behind me.
  • When I finally grabbed her in the darkness, I swam back to the surface. It never occurred to me how fast the ice could freeze over.
  • Don’t be scared of the monsters, just look for them. Look to your left, to your right, under your bed, behind your dresser, in your closet but never look up, she hates being seen.
