Welcome to Season 5, Episode 6 of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, starring Otis Jiry.

In this episode of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, we bring you four terrifying tales from authors Rhoads Brazos, Jason Parent, Patrick Meegan, and Rebecca Fung, performed by host and narrator Otis Jiry, about dangerous doors, suspicious strangers, damnable dreams, and spiritual sacrifices.

All of tonight’s tales are featured in the horror anthology, Daylight Dims: Volume Two, and are featured here with the kind permission of their authors.  The sequel to the original Daylight Dims, Volume 2 features thirteen stories that cross the genres of surreal, dark fantasy, and heart pounding dread – guaranteed to twist your perception of horror. From the common, comfortable tropes, to the more taboo, these handpicked tales have a literary aspect designed to showcase what true horror can be.
