"Man Size in Marble" by E. Nesbit

Creepeh. Simply creepeh. After searching high and low, a newly married couple move into a quaint little house overlooking the ocean. Little do they know, their house sits on the site of a much larger house, inhabited by 2 wicked men. Every Halloween, their marble effigies rise up from the town's church and return to their home, and woe to anyone who meets them along the way. At least, that's what their housekeeper, Mrs. Dorman tells them. But that's just a silly fable.. right?

This fall challenge just gets better and better! This story was pretty good, a little cliched but that's probably just because apparently there's no original material anymore; everything nowadays is a remake of something else. Needless to say, there are a lot of stories that sound kinda like this one, just tweaked this way and that. It definitely does not take away from the fun of reading this story, though. Nice and eerily chilling, just the way I like spending my nights after work.

Yah, and technically this was supposed to be posted yesterday. I just didn't really have a chance to get to a computer, so whatever. But I read the story yesterday, which is what matters :P

New post in a couple hours! When I finish today's horror story!
