I read this one a long time ago in a children`s book of horror stories
Tom And Ruth roared down the road doing 93.
Tom hit a bump, Ruth hit a tree. Tom sped on,
Ruthlessly.

As I lay on the medical table, I try to make my still lips move. I silently scream "Please Don`t, Please Someone hear me, I`m Alive, I`M ALIVE!"
As the coroner began to cut he softly whispered in my ear "I Know."

when you are alone in the dark, can you be sure if the shadow you saw out of the corner of your eye, or the whisper you heard on the wind was anything but a shadow or a whisper?

This may explane a few things. When I was a kid The only commic books That the local stores sold
were Warren Horror comics aimed at adults. I never got to read things like Marvel or DC. Although some of the warren characters went to Marvel after Warren went Bankrupt.

Just as I finished reading these, my cat pushed my clothes hamper over, and scared the crap out of me. Damn cats!!!

"The last man alive sat alone in a room. He heard a knock at the door..."
Fredric Brown, iirc.

Several of these were indeed VERY good!

@TheZigRat: Yours are good too! You seem to have a gift for this sort of thing :-)

I`ll give it a try:

I see my mother every day. Not unexpected, since I spread her ashes throughout my house.

"Wake up! Wake up!" Her voice said "You`re having a bad dream!"
When I awoke, I was alone.

When I woke up, I could hear a cat purring at the foot of my bed, it was very pleasant.
Then I remembered: I don`t own a cat.

Alternate endings:
...My cat died last week.
...I own a dog.
...I was in a hotel.

Thank you to those who`ve explained the origins of these.

@ LordJim: You might be right there. They work beautifully on their own; more could be a disappointment.

@ Abby0315: I dunno why but your observation there sent a chill through me equal to any of the sentences in the original post. I`m throughly creeped out now, which doesn`t happen all that often at my age. :-)

I didn`t have high hopes these would be that scary. But at least half of them are so unexpectedly full of despair that they unsettle your nerves. Good show.

I absolutely hate the feeling of being completely alone in a room and feeling a shadow pass behind or by me.

The last living being found to his horror, he was not alone. And they were hungry

As she had seen her pets do so many times before. The woman draped only in cobwebs, devoured her lover.

People say I have my dad`s eyes. Have they been looking through my things?

A drunk man at a bar complains to the Bartender. "My Mothserinlawz Jush came to visit, I knew we should have buried her remains deeper."

I awoke early in the morning to find a rotting corpse in the bed. I tried to scream but the decaying body was mine.

They are comming. I can not see them... windows boarded up. I hear them. At the door. Ratlike claws scratching on the walls, the roof, under the floor. Scratching... Inhuman.They can`t get in. I can`t get out. Three days now. No food, water gone. They`re comming. Scratching... Madness, fear. I scream trying to drownd out the noise of their scratching, their clawing. Then silence and only the cracking of the floor boards is heard. They are Here.

Some of those are extremely well-crafted short stories.

Squrlz,

I think they work better as they are; lapidary.

These were from a Reddit contest for horror stories that were two sentences long, and it leaves out the best one...

"The doctors told the amputee he might experience a phantom limb from time to time. Nobody prepared him for the moments though, when he felt cold fingers brush across his phantom hand."

"This is exactly the kind of stuff that makes me constantly turn around to see whats behind me."
There`s nothing behind you. You live too close to power lines.

When there is someone behind you, don`t even notice and cut them off as they try to pass...

These are great. Most of them would make awesome opening lines for a short story or novel. In fact, I`m wondering if any of them *are* opening lines from published stories.
