Ghost stories are often looked upon as either a medium to scare people from loitering or a medium of laughter by many who amuse at them. While most of us are scared of all the different kinds of ghosts in our childhood, as we grow up we become more strong or rather carefree. But there are some stories that will leave you haunted, doomed and sleepless. Do not believe us? Here are best 9 of the scariest stories.

Knock knock

The Toddler Nightmare

The Picture
