10+ Two-Sentence Horror Stories That Will Keep You Awake At Night

Imagine how messed up life would be if everything had a dark twist.

We wouldn’t get to live a single normal day if that were true. From things as simple as going to work, or waking up in the morning, everything would be terrifying because it would have a bad outcome. While we have seen a number of films based on this concept, it isn’t exactly true in the real world.

When the moderators of r/TwoSentenceHorror were questioned about their stories, here’s what they had to say:

“First of all, I think the anatomy of a two-sentence horror story will change from writer to writer. However, I have seen the following pattern: Line one – set up; line two – twist. Often times, the real horror element does not come until the second line. This is a very common approach,”

Then again, every writer is different and adds his/her own touch in the story.

“Thankfully, there is no exact answer. That would be boring. Some of the top posts are existential horrors, like mine. Others incorporate revenge, visceral and/or body horror, weird fiction, sci-fi, fantasy elements, historical fiction, crime, and abuse. Note: we do not include trigger warnings as we feel this acts as a spoiler. You’ve been warned.”
