Everybody always wants a good ghost story. From bloody mary stories to weird made-up stories, you’ll go on a dangerous quest, one you can only do with your imagination. Starting with the not so scary ghost story to the scariest of them all, here are the top 10 scariest ghost stories.
#10. The Boy With No Mouth
I made this story up so it might not be scary to you, and I got this off a mask at the halloween store, so if you know this mask please don’t get mad.
This one starts off at a school with three kids, one boy, two girls. They were 10 to 14 years old when the boy who was named Jason had a really big mouth… he would always blurt out answers. He really wanted to stop, but that all changed when he fell asleep on a test on Friday. A ghost came to him and said these exact words, “Jason wake, you talk too much. I will fix that for you." She grabbed him and pulled him inside his dream. When he woke up he wanted to tell the teacher about the dream, but a voice in his ear said, "don’t do that or I’ll make this permanent.” Jason didn't know what the voice meant so he went to the bathroom to talk, but what he found there was not what he expected. He didn’t talk, because JASON DIDN’T HAVE A MOUTH! He went back to his classroom where he slept, his sister (who is 14) noticed his face and got scared. She told the teacher and Jason was rushed to the hospital. No matter how hard they tried they could not get his mouth back, so he went back to his class. His crush Piper looked at him with hatred, as if she thought Jason was an evil villain that she had to defeat. He sat in his chair and went to sleep. What he saw would’ve angered him for a million years. It was the ghost, but what she said made Jason’s heart stop. And this is what she said..."I will give you your mouth back as long as you promise not to blurt.” He was so excited that he agreed. When he woke up he raised his hand and spoke clear words out of his mouth. His crush Piper was quick to think, so she went to his table at lunch and told him she liked him. Jason would’ve been so happy if he hadn’t remembered when she looked at him. He said he didn’t like her back. And that right there is the end of the story.
So apparently the ghost was a dead teacher who roamed the halls of that school. Was that scary for ya? I don’t think so, so let's keep going.
#9. The Tower of London
The Tower of London is in Britain, which was once home to King Henry the VIII. King Henry had many wives. Two of them he had executed for treason. The first one, Anne Boelyn, was beheaded and now haunts her own grave. But the 2nd one, Catherine, is trapped in the room awaiting her beheading and to this day, is heard screaming for forgiveness.
So this next one is an Alcatraz story. Try not to get scared and stop reading ok.
#8. Alcatraz- The Hole
This famous prison saw many deaths in its day. Down in the depths of the prison was a room called "The Hole." It is where the prisoners who broke the rules were sent to be tormented. Those inside the prison believed the souls of the prisoners who died in the Hole were never able to leave. Soon guards and prisoners alike were reporting strange and disturbing sightings.
One night, one of the prisoners began screaming for the guards to come help. He screamed that the man with the glowing eyes was there to kill him. The guards heard screaming so often in the dark dungeons that they just ignored the prisoner. Besides, they were there to suffer, right?
The next morning, as the guards were making their rounds, they pounded on the cell door with no response. When they opened the door they were shocked to find the prisoner dead. He had been strangled to death and when they looked closer, they could see handprints around his throat.
#7. The White Witch of Niles Canyon
Niles Canyon is very close to us, just on the other side of Tracy. Every year, on February 26th, a young woman dressed in white appears on Niles Canyon Road. No one knows where she came from. Some say she was a young runaway who disappeared into the canyon sometime in 1938 and whose body was never found. To this day she is said to hitchhike her way home to San Francisco. But those who pick her up report that once they reach the toll bridge, she disappears.
#6. Queen Mary
The Queen Mary was a WWII transport ship. There were many tragic and mysterious deaths on the ship. One of the most tragic was the story of the little girl from the 3rd level who ventured to the upper deck for a little fun. She hopped onto the banister and began to slide down when a huge wave hit the ship, knocking her off balance. She fell from the banister and broke her neck. Now a hotel, the Queen Mary is said to be haunted by the spirit of the girl, along with two other women, who like to make waves at the pool.
#5. Winchester Mystery Mansion
Sarah Winchester was the heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune. She lost her only daughter and then her husband both to tragedy. After seeking advice from a psychic, she was told that she was cursed by the dead slain by the rifle. If she hoped to live she would have to build a house for the spirits, but if she ever stopped she would die. So Sarah Winchester bought a huge parcel in California and began building, and building, and building, day and night, all while holding seances to summon her dead husband and daughter. I’ve been to the Winchester Mansion before.
#4. Breaking News - Mother and Sons Die Tragically
The Congress Plaza Hotel is a famous hotel in Chicago, once home to the famous mobster, Al Capone. One night a young mother came to stay at the hotel with two young sons to wait for the arrival of her husband. But sadly, he never showed. The mother was so distraught she threw herself and her two sons out of the hotel window. But, only two bodies ever made it to the morgue. Today, the ghost of the young boy is said to chase guests through the halls of the hotel.

#2. Bloody Mary 1
Late one night, two girls on a long road trip stopped for gas at an out of the way gas station. They needed fuel for themselves and the car and needed to use the bathroom. The girls were tired and worried about the long drive still ahead so, while in the bathroom, they decided to try the bloody mary chant, just for giggles. Looking into the dingy mirror, the first girl started. "Bloody Mary!" Nothing. They both laughed. "Bloody Mary!" A little flicker of the lights. No big deal. But the girls looked a little nervously at each other. She hesitated, but the girl looked at the mirror one last time. "Bloody Mary!" The lights went out! The girls grabbed each other screaming! The lights flickered back on and suddenly the mirror was covered in blood. They ran outside and realized their faces were also covered in blood. When they cleaned themselves off, they were terrified to find they both had fingernail scratches all over their faces.
Nowwwwwwwwww for the scariest one we have all been waiting for!
#1. Bloody Mary - She Won’t Tell Us What Happened
A bunch of girls who went to school together got together for a sleepover. During the sleepover, the girls all dared one of the other girls to do the Bloody Mary chant. She refused at first, but eventually the girl went into the bathroom and closed the door. Suddenly the girls outside heard screaming. The girl inside the bathroom was trying to get out, but couldn’t even though the door wasn’t locked. They eventually opened the door and the girl came running out. Once she cooled down, she showed them her arms and they had scars all over them that weren’t there before. To this day she won't tell them what happened. Or maybe, she can’t!
So were those scary to you or not? This was really fun. This was pretty scary, so let me know what you think.
