For readers who love adventure, the spooky horror genre is definitely the best choice. Instead of downloading an eBook from Amazon or purchasing an audiobook on Audible, you have a variety of choices from free websites. Check out our 'Top 10 Best Sites For Ghost Stories'.

1. Scary for Kids

Scary for Kids is a website that features a wide range of scary content, geared toward kids. Content on the site includes scary pictures, videos, games, movies, and stories.

Select Scary Stories from the menu to access the area of the site where all of those stories are collected. On that page you can browse scary stories by categories like Halloween stories, urban legends, ghost stories, and more.

Since this site is for kids, expect spooky stories, but nothing that’s too gory or disturbing for younger children (or for easily scared adults).

2. Haunted Places

Hauntu is a blend of live theatre performance, role play and storytelling that comes together to provide an engaging experience that’s never been offered before in Kuala Lumpur.

Much more than a haunted house, Hauntu features real actors, audience interaction, intricate mazes and interconnected storylines that centre around a colonial hotel filled with mystery and the paranormal. Participants not only get to take on roles within the storylines but also experience Malaysia in different eras from its pre-independence days right up to the present.

Hauntu is the latest experiential offering from Superdough, an international franchise with 10 Breakout escape room outlets globally. Superdough is formed by a team of creative and passionate young people constantly pushing the boundaries of novel entertainment experiences. Having established the Breakout brand in 2014, Superdough launched HAUNTU, Malaysia and Southeast Asia’s very first fully immersive horror experience, in 2018.

What is the minimum age Hauntu is recommended for?

The minimum age to enter without adult supervision is 15 years old. The experience may not be suitable for young persons between the ages of 8 - 14, but we do have some who enjoyed the experience. They will need to be accompanied by an adult if they are required to participate. Children 7 and under are strictly not allowed to enter.

3. Housecreep

Housecreep is a one-of-a-kind resource for realtors, homebuyers, renters, and true crime enthusiasts alike.

Since 2013, people have been using the Housecreep platform to map the exact addresses of homes where murders, crimes, or other historical events have occurred. The information is gathered from personal experiences, online articles, old newspaper clippings, death certificates, and other public records, which people upload and publish directly on the website.

How do you read a scary story?

If the horror story has a movie, don’t watch it. Most movies ruin the thrill if you read the story afterward.

Make the environment fit for reading the horror story. You have to be alone and choose to read the horror story during nighttime.

Don’t leave the story for later. Read it in one go.

4. Creepypasta

The site design is somewhat outdated and plain, but that’s not why you’re there is it? You’re there to be spooked!
