Scary Stories For Quarantine Halloween

Scary Stories For Quarantine Halloween

Rachel Williams, Reporter

This Halloween when you are sitting at home you might want to read a scary story, if so here are some suggestions. 

1. CORALINE by NEIL GAIMAN

Coraline is about a little girl who steps through a door and finds a home just like hers…except better! Or so she thinks. Turns out, there really is no place like home and the people who live on the greener grass on the other side are really quite creepy!

2. SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES by RAY BRADBURY

Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show rolls into town, granting the wishes of the townspeople at a great and sinister cost. Here’s the big question: what would you give up to become younger again? To become older? To see a lost love? I’m betting it’s not the price demanding by the creepy carnival master!

3. THE FEAR STREET SERIES by R.L. STINE

The series begins with The New Girl, a story about one boy’s obsession with the pretty new girl in school. When she vanishes, he has to head to Fear Street to find out what happened…and that just may be the death of him!

4. SPOOKSVILLE SERIES by CHRISTOPHER PIKE

Adam moves to a small town called Springville, but quickly finds out from Sally that it’s secretly called Spooksville because of all the bizarre things that happen in it. Adam doesn’t believe Sally until he ends up on the other side of a dark doorway, and in a place where spooky is an understatement!

5. DARKNESS by JOHN SAUL

Darkness is about an evil town and a family (with a teen girl) that moves back to it after some time away. The town feeds on the innocent…and they want the Anderson’s daughter!
