'thriller short stories'

If you’re anything like us, you love a good thriller/mystery to get the adrenaline pumping. While a movie does sound good, there’s nothing that compares to the detail that comes with reading a well-written story. 

In the mood to get your spook on? We’ve got you covered!

Here are 4 must-read spooky short stories and some of our absolute all-time faves! 

1. Under the Banyan Tree, My Mother Told Me

There’s nothing like a mother-daughter bond; it’s special and one-of-a-kind. So when you see little girls talking out loud, pretending her mother is sitting next to her, you imagine it to be a childlike habit you can brush off. But what if things start to get a little spookier and details don’t add up anymore? That’s when the story truly begins. 

2. An Eerie Tuesday Night

We don’t know about you, but Tuesdays for some bring the worst luck. So, it’s only natural that this story is set on an eerie Tuesday in an old house occupied by no one save our protagonist and her best friend. Oh, and her grandpa!

3. The Lurking Murderer

Set amidst a perfect little community where everything’s pink and pretty, and nothing ever goes wrong. Except for one thing: there’s a murderer on the loose, and they are giving every townsman the jitters. When one thing leads to another, and things paramount to a climax, where do you turn, and which path do you take? How can you trust anyone?

4. A Dream You Never Woke Up From

Have you ever had one of those dreams that just felt way too real to just be a dream? It’s definitely cosmic because things were too intimate and just too detailed. Once you’re awake, still shell-shocked and drenched in sweat, how do you react when real life begins to play out like your dream? The story is just as terrifying as it sounds. 

Do you prefer stories over movies? Personally, the imagination and possibilities that come with stories seem more exciting to us, and that’s why we’re always on the lookout for more spooky stories. If you come across any more good ones, do let us know in the comments!
