The Smile

by We Love Horror
Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 7 minutes Crunch. The day was perfect for a walk. The crisp autumn air, the blood-orange tint of the leaves, and the slight breeze made me realize that I needed to spend more time outdoors. Crunch. The sound of stepping on a leaf was a satisfying delight I forgot existed. Another leaf blew across the sidewalk. Crunch.I had spent three days shut away in my empty house due to a project that my boss gave me, last minute might I add. If I hadn’t been so preoccupied with finishing by the [...]

Maximilian Schäfer

Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 2 minutes The image above is a sketch by Maximilian Schäfer, a criminally insane arsonist formerly committed to the now-defunct Gelassenheit Asylum outside the city of Linz, Austria. Weeks previous to his violent suicide, Max began complaining to staff about an unpleasant visitor who was arriving daily to harass him. According to Max, the visitor “smelled very bad, and had a nasty temperament.” Doctors at the facility knew that no visitors had been granted access to Schäfer since his arrival, and began to question him about the nature of his imagined [...]

The Summer I was Eighteen and Saved

by We Love Horror
Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 6 minutes The summer that I was eighteen, I was trying to find something bigger than myself. I was a dumb kid, but dumb in the sense that I didn’t understand when I was in too deep. Ask me anything about literary devices in storytelling, and I could write you a thesis paper. I whacked at the course selection pinata until it broke, and I swept away as many college credits as I could. I lived in a town full of potheads and low income housing. My parents made 20k a [...]

A Monochrome’s Melancholy

by We Love Horror
Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 40 minutes It’s was a chilly but sunny day in the middle of October. A little five-year old girl with short black hair while wearing her white Sunday dress was walking hand in hand with her mother. The woman’s name was Julie Fairbanks, and her little cheerful cherub daughter was a girl by the name of Mavis. It was a family of two, who always held smiles wherever they went and brought cheer to whomever they met. Julie was a woman of radiance, tall and slender with subtle curves that gave [...]

How It Began

Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 14 minutes The wind was blistering cold, the kind of wind that would pierce any clothing you happen to be wearing no matter how thick. Something about cold air makes sound travel further, especially high-pitched screaming. Even today, with our substantial medical advances, giving birth can be quite a trial. A couple of centuries ago, however, giving birth was nothing short of agony, if not torment. Surviving the ordeal was essentially flipping a coin. The women of the village were of course quite experienced with this particular problem. With a village [...]

The Shattering

Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 9 minutes Miranda’s toes curled slightly as her bare feet slid out of bed to go check on her children. It was about 11:40 at night and they had been in bed for a few hours, but she felt too restless to get any sleep herself. She turned on the hall light and crept quietly towards her son’s room, knowing full well that her 2 month old wouldn’t have gotten into any trouble. She named him Seth in honor of his father who had died recently, shortly after he was born. [...]

Subject Eighty-One

by We Love Horror
Light! Searing, brutal light awakens you, pulling you from the dark oblivion you didn’t even know you were in. Screams echo around you, long and pained, and it’s only after a few moments that you realize one is coming from your lips as well. You ache all over, your very nerve endings alight with agonizing energy that just begs to be released, a kind of pent up reserve that is burning you from the inside out. Lashing out with your arms, the jangle of chains and new pain in your limbs reveals that you’re bound to a table set at [...]

Chamber 23

Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 17 minutes When the popular social media platform, Facebook, first became available to the general public in 2006, its original intent was to connect people all around the world—this world. Its unsurpassable success only fueled the company’s need to innovate and come up with new features and revenue streams. Facebook had to learn quickly how to provide best-in-class services to their nearly 2 billion users—some for fun, and others out of necessity. In 2015, Facebook released a feature allowing users to appoint a Legal Contact that would be designated to manage [...]

The Spider in the Bed

Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 12 minutes The Spider in the Bed D. Fulkerson “I don’t want to talk. Really. I just want to go to bed,” she said, taking out her earrings. She hustled by him without making eye contact, tossed the mail on the dresser, and lightly brushed him away. He reflexively glanced at the scattered envelopes. Bills. What’s that one from Venezuela? All bills.He remembered loving her. She was beautiful in youth. She was tall, lithe, and had an angular face with gorgeously high cheekbones. He wasn’t sure why she began to date [...]

Down Here

by We Love Horror
Add this post to your list of favorites!Reading Time: 33 minutes ‘Down Here’. Those were the words my friend whispered to me that night, and though a year has passed, they still fester in my mind, shapeless and meandering like a blinding fog. When I entered his house the lights at the front were off. Outside, the weather was still; the air thick and muggy as if waiting for a breath. It seemed as though the summer had been building towards that evening. Stifled, sweat-drenched, sleepless nights one after the other – we just needed a little rain to clear [...]
