The fragility of our existence is what draws most of us to horror. And it’s the reason we created campfire stories and urban legends. They are an entertaining and memorable way to package our cautionary tales.

“Be careful where you go, and who you allow close.”

“Remember that the person you torment could easily become your tormentor.”

“Always keep in mind that not everything is as it seems.”

These stories ensure that we remember the warnings when we need to heed them the most.

In this volume of Night Terrors, we creep past the “what ifs” and plunge head-on at situations that could turn from harmless to sinister in the blink of an eye. A boy holds a terrible secret that threatens to bring his vengeful grandmother back from the grave. Two children learn that they need to be more cautious in picking targets for Halloween pranks. A mother at the end of her rope punishes her child before learning the true reason for his actions. And two college students searching for entertainment wander to places best left unexplored.

We should never be too quick to dismiss cautionary tales. If we grow too comfortable in the darkness, we risk forgetting about all the things lurking within them.

And remember too late that those things never forget about us.
