Did Certain Books Creep You Out When You Were a Kid?

Did you have any books that scared you as a kid? I have to admit that I did not.  But here is an interesting video by video blogger Vsauce.  It's called “Why Are Things Creepy?,” exploring the nuances and science of scariness.  Along the way, he cites the great Stephen King and shares a few scary books.

Please see the video at the bottom of this post.

What does it take to make a book scary? Vampires, ghosts, serial killers, zombies, mean parents, all of the above?  Your turn.  Talk to the readers and to me in the comment section. 

Below, is a list of books that scared Vsauce as a kid. Please add your suggestions in the comments section.
