You slink up the steps, clutching the rickety railing, hoping no one can hear the pounding of your heart. The door creeeeeaks as you push it open. Shivering, you step inside, where many horrors await you…. Or do they? Are these really “scary tales to keep you up at night”, or “silly poems to read to your kid?”
