I love a good scary story, and there’s no better collection of them than on reddit. This is the best of r/nosleep, r/letsnotmeet and r/unresolvedmysteries- in that order.
I like to start with r/nosleep because, as a friendly reminder, these ones aren’t real. The peace of mind you feel in browsing through these, knowing they’re fictional, dissipates by the time you hit r/letsnotmeet. These ones are real- real people, real creepy encounters (but they lived to tell the tale).
Last (while in storytelling they might be), but certainly not least, we have r/unresolvedmysteries. What charm these stories may lack (given that they’re factual accounts and not fictional narratives) they make up for in fear. These are stories of missing people, unidentified bodies, things and people vanishing without a trace- the real horror stories of this world, imo.
Staircases in the Woods (to ease your way in)
Return to Sender
The Left Right Game (one of my favourite of all time)
Romantic Cabin Getaway (I thought this one was real for longer than I’d like to admit)
The Smiling Man (this should be everyone’s first letsnotmeet- reminder, these ones are real)
The Bridge (there are multiple parts, with images)
Babynapper in the Parking Lot (the most infuriating story ever)
The Woman in the Mirror
The Morgan Ingram Case (read the moms blog as well)
The Disappearance of Asha Degree
The Kidnapping of Johnny Gosch (super sad and still ongoing)
The Disappearance of Andrew Gosden
That’s all for now! Enjoy (not sleeping)
