On Friday, after announcing the winners of Jezebel’s annual scary story contest, we promised you a round of bonus stories. You’ll find new terrifying tales—and two extra treats below.
Clear your weekend plans and procure a fainting couch: Here are the winners of Jezebel’s 2017 scary story contest and, trust us, you’re gonna need to lie down.
Against all odds, we’ve somehow made it to October 2017, inarguably the best month of a mostly shitty year, and any year, period. As the weather gets brisk and Halloween approaches, another highly anticipated event looms like the full moon on an eerie night: The annual Jezebel scary story contest.
Here’s a story that includes an old house in the middle of nowhere, a stranger lurking in the shadows (and not in the friendly Boo Radley way) and a popular hook-up app. It just might be the scariest modern dating story you ever hear...but is it real?
Happy Halloween! You didn’t think we’d let you off with just the one post of winners from this year’s spooky story contest, did you? Read these reader-submitted bonus stories... if you dare.
We’ve read your emails and dug deep into the grave—sorry, the greys—to find the most buried, most frightening stories submitted by you, our dear readers, for this year’s Halloween scary story contest. What we’ve unearthed are 10 of scariest tales of ghosts, demons, stalkers, and murderers that we’ve ever read.
Gather round, ghoulies, ghosties, and goblins. It’s time for what is both the best and most dreaded time of the year: Jezebel’s annual spooky stories contest! I know it’s exciting, but try not to lose your head...
Memphis has a new crime trend: thieves have been stealing hair weave bundles, and these “hair heists” have resulted in at least four people being killed.

I’m sorry. Did you really think we would limit ourselves to only ten of your scariest stories this Halloween?
We asked and you delivered. With over 3,000 comments on this year’s Scary Story contest, this year’s submitters brought their best—sharing hair-raising, spine-tingling tales that were so scary that certain Jezebel writers were forced to sleep with their lights on. These are the ten most terrifying.
Welcome, boys and GHOULS, to Jezebel’s annual Spooky Stories contest. Hope you brought your nappy bag because you’re about to wet your diaper.
Happy Halloween, people who aren't going to sleep tonight!
Don't even bother tightening your belts; you're about to get your pants scared off. Last week, we asked you to tell us your spookiest, freakiest, goosebump-iest stories. And, holy sleepless night with the lights on — you did not disappoint.
As the grass grows deader and an otherworldly chill fills the air, thoughts turn to the march of darkness into waning summer days, and the unknowable, and sometimes horrifying secrets that it holds. It's here. It's finally here. It's our annual Spooky Stories contest.
There's no other way to say this: You'd better get some toilet paper, because you're about to get the crap scared out of you.
It's that time of year again: Shadows grow long, winds turn chilly, and we're closer and closer to All Hallows Eve and Día de Muertos, when the thinly spun spider-web of a veil between the living and the dead falls away like flesh on a zombie. And that means it's time for scary stories!
Halloween is right around the corner, so it's time for another round of spooky stories! Just like last year, we want to hear your creepiest tales. We're not looking for narratives you read or saw on TV or in a movie (or made up). We're looking for true, terrifying stories that happened to you (or a family member or…
We've read through your ghost stories and picked out ten of our favorites. Read on for tales of creepy photos, scary basements, a haunted daycare center, and one very, very unwelcome visitor.
