No matter where you are, nighttime is usually when things get creepy.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to name the scariest thing that ever woke them up in the middle of the night. From tornados to possums, here are the best answers.
Once i woke up because i heard music playing from the kitchen and i thought maybe mum forgot to turn the radio off. I went through the dark hallway to the kitchen to turn the radio off but when i was standing in the dark kitchen there was no music playing everything was as quiet as always at 3am. - NesWhatElse
I heard someone quietly trying my front doorknob late at night (I wasn't quite asleep yet). I checked with my room mate later, and it wasn't them. It happened once or twice more, but I never got to the door quickly enough to see who it was through the peephole.
Nothing ever came of it, and I live somewhere else now. - sandwastes
