  1. The one that creeps me out is a different version of the big toe: were a old man chops off the tail of a creature and eats the tail, eventually the creature comes back to claim his tail

  2. The only Story I remember from this series is the one with the little Vampire girl, and I wasn’t really scared by it. I didn’t have these books in my house as a kid, I was into Goosebumps

  3. I liked this video before the add came but after Fake Love JK focus fancam came i kind of forgot about the video
