These two-line horror stories will send chills down your spine

AskReddit invited their users to write a few horror stories for the community. But it comes with a catch. It can only contain two sentences.

These 32 stories work surprisingly well considering their limits.

Their bone-chilling effects prove that you don't need a lot of words to build an eerie atmosphere. You simply need an unusual situation with an absolutely creepy explanation, such as this story by hangukbrian.
