What's The Creepiest Six-Word Horror Story You've Ever Heard?

Six words that are very scary. I DID IT!!!

The "six-word horror story" is a spooky trend that challenges people to come up with a scary story...using only six words.

Comic book writer Gail Simone started a Twitter thread last year where she asked people to share their unsettling six-word stories, and posted some of her own. "Mommy put hornets in my thermos" made my blood run cold.

Six-word horror stories have been popular on Reddit for even longer, like this one from a few years ago. User Anofles' submission — "Such beautiful eyes. I kept them." — had me sleeping with one eye open.

And user breakDOWN_'s submission — "Attention all passengers! Please remain calm." — sent shivers down my spine.
