Scary Stories by NearRyuzaki90 Scary Stories by NearRyuzaki90
Anyone remember these books? Well, I found them at a Chapters several months back, and decided to do a motivational on 'em. And get a load of this, they're typically classified as children's books.

I had one of these, in my first, second, and third grade, class rooms, in elementary, and I was...actually pretty OK with the pictures... expect the one with the spider laying eggs in the girls face, then they hatched... Arachnophobia... that one story, and that one phobia just...don't work.... EVER

ikr, the books should say moderately frighting stories to tell in the dark, with night mare fuel ILL-ustrations straight from the darkest corners of Fuckthishit ville

You didn't get these books for the stories, you got them for the art. Plain and simple!

I couldn't agree with you more. These illustrations were what made me scared to sleep without the closet light on as a kid.

I grew up with these. I think I have a couple on a shelf somewhere. Most of the stories weren't that bad but a few were down right nightmare fuel when I was a kid. And those illustrations, especially in the older editions, dear god the illustrations.

Love the stories, they're not that bad, I actually enjoy reading them. I'll be reading the story, I flip the page and see the illustrations...I slam the book closed, and cower in my bed...the pics still scare me. Whoever draws the illustrations, knows how to draw some scary ass shit.

When I was a kid those pictures terrified me. I looked up the artist yesterday to see if the artwork was as scary as I remember. I had nightmares last night, so yeah, just proves that even 24 year olds are terrified of those images. But I still like them. :)

Out of curiosity, the original 80's versions, or the anniversary editions with holo covers?

Oh, just the regular covers. I remember the shiny holo ones though! And re: the new illustrations; a little piece of me died inside when I found out Gammell's pictures were gone. What a wimpy bunch this current generation of kids will turn out to be! :p

Sorry! Yes, I agree with you. His work is great for what it is but the Gammell images are what made the books so great in the first place. It's like taking the chocolate chips out of chocolate chip cookies. :(

I usually thought the illustrations were cool, but in many cases, definitely the art was scarier than the story; especially in this one Bones book I had...chills!

To me the scariest one was either the pale woman who said "This is a evil place blah blah blah" or the messed-up girl in the Haunted House story...
