50 Two-Sentence Horror Stories Which Will Give You Nightmares

One can make anything scary.

You might think that wanting to write a horror story requires a lot of work and it is quite complicated. And while it may be somewhat true, it doesn’t take much to scare someone. Humans are naturally cautious and that is built within us. A sort of sixth sense that kicks in when we sense that something is wrong. That is the exact feeling of anticipation when you know a jump scare is coming while watching a horror movie.

Well, the following people decided to flip that trope on its head. The following stories are not length and don’t have any developed characters. You might think this works against the stories. But in actuality, these two-sentence stories are actually quite terrifying especially when you read about the twist. They may be short, but they aren’t lacking in imagination. And you can see that for yourself by scrolling below.
