What are some really good scary stories to tell in the dark and scare the heck out of people?

I at one time came up with a good one about a little boy who got his jaw ripped off and scared my cousins, but that night when I went to bed I got scared thinking I was going to see that little boy trying to say something to me with no bottom jaw and tongue sticking out... It was a ghost story:)

I know one, but it's not a story. What you do is you sit facing another person in a dark room and just stare at their face. If you do that the whole time, then really creepy things happen to them- like their face dissolving into nothingness or whatever.

Me and my friend tried that once and it looked like my friend's face was like a skeleton face or pale like a ghost.

Were you two in absolute dark? I do it with my friends sometimes and apparantly super creepy things happen if you're in pitch dark. Also, I would suggest having another person to man the light for you so you don't have to do it yourselves.

No it was dark but we could see each other's face looked like, how long do you have to stare for it to look like it is dissolving into nothingness?

Okay-
1. You have to do it in PITCH DARK or else it doesn't work. That's why I suggested the person for the light, because it has to be turned off while you're looking at each other.
2. If you want to do it right (I'm not saying you two didn't), you stare at a spot on the other person's face for the first ten seconds after the light gets turned off. It's a trick I figured out so it doesn't get screwed up.
3. You don't always see the other person's face dissolve into nothingness- different things happen every time. For instance, once when I was doing it with my friend, she looked like a mummified version of me for ten whole seconds. It was really creepy, but my point is that you can't make certain things happen to the other person. What happens happens.

You're welcome. My profile picture is a baby bunny. To change your profile picture, first go into your profile. There should be the word Change underneath your picture. Click that. What should come up is a window with your current picture, a bar, a Browse button, and a large blue Save Changes button. Click the Browse button- it should take you into My Pictures for your computer. Double-click the picture that you want to be your profile picture. It should bring you back to the window with your picture. Click the Save Changes button. After you do that, your picture should change to the one you selected off of My Pictures. If you have trouble with this, wait a few hours and try again.

Sorry, I forgot to mention something. The box also has an Upload Images button. Click that before you click the Save Changes button.

You could start off by saying "The only man on Earth sat alone in a room with the door closed. Then, there was a knock on the door...." and just make up the rest along the way.

Bloody Mary,a witch who is trapped inside a mirror.If you repeat her name 10 times in the dark,in front of a mirror she will appear.Be sure not to break the mirror or she will be free to roam the earth again.

Me and my friend tried that out once, to see if it was true or not but we was under a bed with a little mirror and a blanket over the bed making it dark under there, plus it was dark outside a little and I guess our imagination got the best of us, because we both claimed that it looked like something was forming in the mirror and we began screaming crawling out from under the bed with the bed shaking from us trying to raise up but could not... Later on we just laughed about it...

Funny one time I started my story off of a little boy who followed a little boy ghost up into the attic to play with him when his mom heard banging all over the walls of the attic and soon realized it was her son screaming and crying for her, but when she got to the attic door that was now closed it went quiet and she yells for him as she is opening the attic door and the light is flickering on and off in the attic she looks all over the walls and sees little hand prints of what look like something was up on the ceiling and walls crawling around bloody hand prints then she sees her sons feet sticking out from behind a pile of boxes stacked up, as she approaches him her face lights up with horror as she begans to scream seeing her son laying there torn up his tongue is hanging down, his chest is mutilated and rib cage showing and has got scratches and bite marks all over his body, the husband running up to the attic having just come in from work through the front door hearing his wife screaming and crying finding along with her their now torn up dead son, that night he puts her to bed and is in the frontroom talking to the police trying to get some answers on what of might of caused this to his son, while the wife cries softly hugging her son's teddy bear hears him say "mommy help me" "it hurts mommy" she gets up in shock looking over toward the dark corner seeing her son step out into the light looking normal before he was killed, but steps back into the dark corner and begans to cry calling for his mom, who is now walking toward the dark corner smileing and saying it is going to be ok sweetie, but as she picks up her son and starts to hug him arms wrapped around him tightly she begans to feel something wet on front of her shirt and pulls him away from her a little bit to see what it is and her eyes grow big as she looks up at her son she is holding and he is the mutilated body she had found up in the attic smileing at her she starts to scream and he locks on to her biting her multiple time on the face and neck.

And as the dad and police run up to investigate her screaming they find her laying on the floor with the little boy's teddy bear gripped tight in her hand, her face and neck is torn up badly, the next day the cops believe it is a physco on the lose so they get the dad to pack up what stuff he can get, and as he is leaving he turns around to look up at his bedroom window on the second story of his used to be house now a crime scene sees his wife in the window holding his son's hand smileing looking at him. THE END so what did you think about my story???:)
