  1. I lived in a city where there was a house in the country side that was haunted. There was a couple who wanted to check out this house at night but they got the total fright of their lives when the outside of the house started to run red. Even when the house was torn down the land stayed haunted no other house or building was ever built there.

  2. Their is a house on our old street that always decorates for Halloween. I mean the whole family comes together and they work for hours to make this house spectacular inside and out. They have some many neat things to see. While you are admiring all the neat stuff you miss the guy sitting in the chair waiting to jump up and scare you. They only scare the adults not the kids. The guy ahead of me jumped and did a little dance. It was funny and scary all at the same time.

  3. I hate spooky stories. They scare me too much! Where I grew up, there was a story about an old abandoned farm house that had burnt down.
