Ghost Stories

Axe Murder Hollow

Excerpted from Spooky Pennsylvania 

retold by S.E. Schlosser 

     Susan and Ned were driving through a wooded empty section of highway. Lightning flashed, thunder roared, the sky went dark in the torrential downpour.
     “We’d better stop,”  said Susan. 
      Ned nodded his head in agreement. He stepped on the brake, and suddenly the car started to slide on the slick pavement. They plunged off the road and slid to a halt at the bottom of an incline.
     Pale and shaking, Ned quickly turned to check if Susan was all right.  When she nodded, Ned relaxed and looked through the rain soaked windows.
“I’m going to see how bad it is,” he told Susan, and when out into the storm. She saw his blurry figure in the headlight, walking around the front of the car. A moment later, he jumped in beside her, soaking wet.
      “The car’s not badly damaged, but we’re wheel-deep in mud,” he said. “I’m going to have to go for help.”
      Susan swallowed nervously. There would be no quick rescue here. He told her to turn off the headlights and lock the doors until he returned.
     Axe Murder Hollow. Although Ned hadn’t said the name aloud, they both knew what he had been thinking when he told her to lock the car.  This was the place where a man had once taken an axe and hacked his wife to death in a jealous rage over an alleged affair. Supposedly, the axe-wielding spirit of the husband continued to haunt this section of the road.
      Outside the car, Susan heard a shriek, a loud thump, and a strange gurgling noise. But she couldn’t see anything in the darkness.
      Frightened, she shrank down into her seat. She sat in silence for a while, and then she noticed another sound.  Bump. Bump. Bump.  It was a soft sound, like something being blown by the wind.
      Suddenly, the car was illuminated by a bright light.  An official sounding voice told her to get out of the car. Ned must have found a police officer.  Susan unlocked the door and stepped out of the car.  As her eyes adjusted to the bright light, she saw it.
      Hanging by his feet from the tree next to the car was the dead body of Ned.  His bloody throat had been cut so deeply that he was nearly decapitated. The wind swung his corpse back and forth so that it thumped against the tree. Bump. Bump. Bump.
     Susan screamed and ran toward the voice and the light. As she drew close, she realized the light was not coming from a flashlight. Standing there was the glowing figure of a man with a smile on his face and a large, solid, and definitely real axe in his hands. She backed away from the glowing figure until she bumped into the car. 
      “Playing around when my back was turned,” the ghost whispered, stroking the sharp blade of the axe with his fingers. “You’ve been very naughty.”
      The last thing she saw was the glint of the axe blade in the eerie, incandescent light.

She told her mom. and her mom advice was to go wash it off. So she then took a warm bath. And accidently hit the zit. The zit burst and hundreds of baby spiders went out.

i dont think that is a scary story. it is just a simple story....

I remember my Grandmother telling me this when i was little & i used to walk through lanes at night on my way home on my own. She told me a this story but it was basically just a mad man & the lights were police & when she stepped out of the car the officer told her not to look behind her but of course she cant help herself & sees a man with her husbands head on an ax sat on the roof of the car hitting the head gently on the roof & that was what the bumping was. That freaked me out more.

holy geeze that was awesome

i had a story like this but very more cruel and like an urban legend

I read another version of this story where the light was the police and when the girl was walking away, the officer told her not to look back but she did and her boyfriend was hung from the tree and the bump sounds were his feet hitting the roof of the car. Good version though!

PEOPLES! Seriously?! The reason it doesn't have an ending is because it has suspense. Which makes you sit on the edge of your seat and want more. A lot of book series do it...And ya'll really need to learn how to spell!

that was scary as hell

This is an urban legend/campfire story. In some versions Susan has enough sense to stay in the car, hears scraping on the car's roof, is rescued by the cops, and discovers the scraping was the sound of Ned's fingernails. Ned, of course, is dead and hanging upside down from a tree. The hookman story is different--couple hears a news story on the radio about an escaped killer with a hook for a hand, guy drives his girfriend home, goes around to open her car door for her, sees an arm with a hook for a hand hanging from the door handle. To get the full effect of these stories they should be told, not read, in the dark at a sleep over or a camp out.
BTW this is the American Folklore website, not the American Gorefest website. If you want blood and guts look elsewhere--try Googling "blood and guts."

OMG!! My Dad Told Me This Story And It Freaked The Hell Out Of Me And It Still Does!! :O

This story crept me out!

I LIVED THERE NO JOKE! I lived in Erie, Pennsylvania on Thomas Road in the area of Ax Murder Hollow. My family built a house there and we lived there with out dying in the woods. It's a pretty place.

this really scared me......i've go goosebumps

i got freaked out i dont even wanna drive at night-maria
i am not ganna drive at night-amanda

creepy story!

This was avery interesting story, it gave me some great story ideas.

. . .wow. A story to scream bloody murder. But . . . will really this scare my classmates? I must say, after I read it, I actually WAS on the side of my seat. I gotta give you credit, man. Nice work.

holy crap that was super AWSOME i mean it was kinda creepy. Good story ya very good by the way is this a real story?

that wus cooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllll

that wasn't that bad! haha

that us freaky! my language arts teacher told us a variation of that

OMG as i was reading this my tv was cutting out and my lights were off, scared the crap out of me!

true story

wooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww is scaryyyyyyyyyyyy

Wow that was lame

oh freak the story was amazing man loved it a lot.........!!!!!!!!:)

this is so scary

the storiee was alright but not that scary


that was a scaryyyyyyy story yet I wanted to read more you should write more supper scary stories

wow really scary

I've read scarier. It's really not that bad if you thinjk about all of the other ghost stories you read out there.
But still it was slightly... disturbing... :|

Wow.That was scary but some bits in their where a bit weird....

i love it!!!its so kwl and i have to right this as a scprit for ... love it lolol

that was cool the axe guy cus his neack that was cool

SCARY!!!!!I WISH THERE WAS MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! was ok i just think u should of made it longer not jump 2 the murder or the big good part sooo fast....cause u know its obvious whats gonna happen but it was steal really good!:)

ok its still really good though i copied it down and used it as my scary storie whgen we roasted marshmallows

That was okay. I heard better and it needed to be longer. The Hermit's House was a WHOLE lot better. I suppose I'm actually disappointed because a lot of Schlosser's others were so much better, like the Wraith of the Creek.

i knew that history, i saw it on supernatural first season: hook man....
from Peru, people

HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!

that was so scary

That was not to scary but it was okay i was kindof sweet

it was really scary it put me on the edge of my seat

that was awesome

This happened when I was 11. I am now 13 so it has been about two years since this happened.

On November 17, 2007 I had a sleepover at my new house for my birthday. My friends Britney, Jennifer, and Kelsey were staying over. We decided to play hide and go seek. After a while we played on my computer for about an hour. When we went to bed my closet was open, and Jennifer was the first to fall asleep. After that I fell asleep, then Kelsey. Britney was up all night.

When we woke up the next morning Britney told us what she saw that night. She said she saw the light come on in my bathroom, so she went to go see what it was. She saw a man with no head crouched down as if searching for something. His neck was bleeding very badly. She went back to her sleeping bag because she thought she was dreaming. About 20 minutes later she saw the man come out of my bathroom and go up to my bed. She said he was facing me. I was on my bed. Then he ran across the room and stop in front of Jennifer .She said he crouched down, and that he looked like he was inspecting her. Then he dashed into my open closet. When she finished the story we all said she must have been dreaming.

A couple of months later I left my closet open and was watching TV at night, and I was the only person awake. After a while my bathroom light came on, and I saw something moving in there. Then it came out of my bathroom and walked very slowly as if disappointed. After about 5 minutes I came out of shock, and called my dad to check and see if anyone was in my room. He did not find anyone in my room. He closed my closet door and left my room. The next day I called Britney to tell her what happened. We both agreed that the headless ghost was looking for his head. Ever since that happened I sleep with my closet closed and a night light on in my bathroom.

i found this storie.


I'm not gonna sleep tonight!

I think this one is okay. It could have been scarier.

Wow, that wasn't scary at all i came to read this hopping to be frightened, and yet this is all you have to offer? However, it is much better than anything I could have done, so, not bad, it was interesting at least.

omg i heard that same exact story from ten friends.....but it still kinda scary....for a 3 year old! lol

thats a good storry but i dont think it is scary enough for my party.....thanks anywayy


Love the story. I was not scared. People die every day. I'm going to write an even scarier story. I hope you guys like it.

wow that was sooooo

OMG i am shaking and so nervous right now, i cant even type properley!

Not very scary...guess it only works in a creepy room in the dark or at night in your bedroom

OMG scary

it was so good but still very scary. the greatest thing for sleepovers! :D

that was COOL

OGM! What happened to her? Did he kill her or not? Did he make her pay or knock her out??????????

omg! that was scarry but totlay awsome!!!

Omg as soon as i was done reading the tent startied shakeing

I told this to my friends and the following day he told me he had nightmares about it

its so scary

Man....that's when you have to drive around with a gun around you.


That wasn't scary at all !

scared me half to death never sleeping in the night of storms .tips never be alone

thats sad

nice and really scary but incomplete..........

I've heard so many vesions of this story but this is the best by far.

a deadly story

It was Kinda scary but its way better than alot of ghost stories. It kinda reminds me of the movie Husk

it scared the fudge out of me. cause i was readin this and it was dark an somebody knocked at my door really hard!!!

this story ends like a clife hanger SCARY BUT I WANT MORE MORE MORE

Pretty scary, but it could be better.

Not bad at all pretty scary!

I learned one thing, never let Ned drive!!!!!!!!!!

omg omg omg omg right after i read it i hear a something going bump bump bump it scared the heck out of me so i locked the door and all the windows XD

its only a story,not real but I scared me

This story is decently told, but not scary at all.

sure it was creepy but i dont believe that

that waz pretty could have been better though..there are alot of stories like this so its not really that unique..just saying

it was awsome and not even scary

i didn't get scared but maybe because i read this in the middle of the afternoon in the daylight. Not bad though

the story was soooo scaryyyy!!

ohhhhhhh!!!!! I was shakin with fear like I was in the place of Susan... :-(

OMG i love this story

sounds a little like the story of the young couple on lovers lane he gets out to go for gas as they have ran out hors go by she hears something scraping the top of the car the police show up find the boyfriend hanging above the car his feet scraping the top of the car creepy just creepy

I learned to never let Ned dive, sadly now you will never have that problem. I also learned to make sure before you marry who you marry is the person that you really love or you might regret it!!

just after i finished it the doorbell rang and during the story my phone went off by a text. the actual story wasn't that scary only with the mobile and door went. ;)

OMG! sorta scary bt stil wow!
