These books are what got me into horror in the first place. Those illustrations were insanely creepy and would probably never fly today.

I'm a strange man

I see something scary, I watch it at 1 am

My favorite is the Hearse Song...

Don’t ever laugh as a hearse goes by, for you may be the next to die.

The wrap you up in a big white sheet, from your head down to your feet.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinnacle on your snout.

They’ll eat your eyes, they’ll eat your nose.
They’ll eat the jelly between your toes...

The Dream should have been on the list instead of an honorable mention. That one was absolutely terrifying and strange.

My favorites were some of the funnier ones, like 'Bloody Fingers', 'the Attic', or 'The Viper'.

Who else enjoyed a touch of humor with their frights?

The pictures traumatised me, yet the stories made me laugh. Except for the one with the head falling down the chimney. That one scared the crap out of me.

My class would literally get into fights as to who could check this out of our library (we only had one copy) I can't wait!

I miss shows like Are you afraid of the dark, Goosebumps and Tales from the Crypt Keeper (animated and TV show).
