Publisher's Summary

Imagine getting out of the bath and finding blood in four of your six rooms. 

That’s not the plot of a B-movie. That’s real life. There’s a reason you’re drawn to horror films, and they’re not as far-fetched as you thought.

FBI data shows that four out of 10 homicides and six out of 10 rapes go unsolved, and this isn’t just down to shoddy police work or a failing system. Sometimes, there just is no rational explanation

Strange things happen every day, and many of them are never reported. But then, many of them don’t end in horror. Some do though, and these are the terrifying true stories that have inspired countless horror movies and thrillers.

In Horror Stories: Terrifyingly Real Stories of True Horror & Chilling Murders, you’ll find cases that have left detectives flummoxed for centuries. You’ll discover:

  • Over 17 true stories that will convince you that horror movies are more than fiction
  • Key cases that have stumped detectives throughout history
  • The mystery of the Phantom Whistler
  • Why you should be wary of ouija boards
  • The tale of America’s first documented serial killer with a body count of over 200
  • The true story behind The Exorcism of Emily Rose
  • The disturbing truth about the cannibal who killed 21 people in 10 months
  • Why 800 pages of investigation caused police to suspect demonic possession

And much more.

If you thought possessed hotels, horrifying mass murders and creepy online forums came from the imaginations of screen writers, think again.

We tell stories because we want to make sense of the truth. Sometimes, though, the explanation defies rational thought.

Horror films portray our worst fears...but our worst fears are not fiction.

Get ready to delve into terrifyingly true tales of crime and horror, look over your shoulder. Are you really alone?

decent short story collection

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This is a collection of short stories of dark and disturbed events that supposedly really happened. I can't speak for the authenticity of the stories, but they were at least entertaining. The narration is pretty well done. All in all, this is a decent collection of short stories.

An Alright Collection

This was an okay collection of real life horrors, some easily substantiated while others can only be speculated on due to being handed down. If you enjoy hearing this type of stories then you're sure to like this collection. The narration was done well.

These were great horror stories

There were so many good horror stories in this collection. From murders to disappearing to the unexplained from hundreds of years ago all the way up to the past 15 years. The collection is not super long and the stories are all 8-20 minutes in length so you get a good bang for your credit as far as quality and number of stories. Hannah Tidy does a great job in bringing this collection together and Martin James is a good narrator. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

An eerie collection of real life tales of horror

This is an eerie collection of real life tales of horror. Ranging from the bizarre to the truly bone-chilling, these stories will keep you up at night if you listen before bedtime. This is not a book for young children. The stories cover many decades. While some of them may be a bit hard to believe, if you check your skepticism at the door and go along for the ride, you'll find this audiobook genuinely thrilling. The narrator is very good and keeps the stories flowing at a nice pace. Recommended listening for all fans of horror and suspense! *I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Marginal

Though the stories were interesting the delivery was much like an automized weather report. Marginal.

Just okay.

This book was just okay. I find it hard to believe some of the stories. They sound like ghost stories from camp.

Not Horror Stories

Although interesting, these stories fall short of what I would consider true horror stories. The narrator was almost robotic in his telling of the stories lacking anything that remotely sounds like emotion.

enjoyed this book

Gave some new information on things I knew about and had a few stories new to me. The narrator's voice was nice and he moved things along at a good pace and tone.

Creepy stories

I'm a big fan of real life Creepypastas, so this is right up my alley! Good narration and creepy stories that make you feel unsettled

Why?

Don’t waste time. All work is picked off internet, with some reworking. Warning should come with these books “No Story Has Been Researched. These Are Stories Taken From The Internet”. Thumbs down.

Good quick book

Good book, felt a bit rushed. More like a you tube video. Otherwise a great quick listen.
