I love a good anthology series. Whether it is in book form or a show like The Twilight Zone, the brief, self-contained episodes offer up a full story without too much fluff. For horror, the format works particularly well since we get right to the scares without excessive exposition that can slow down the narrative. The Vault of Horror: A Collection of Nightmares delivers just that—concise, creepy stories filled with disturbing imagery and just the right amount of dialogue to keep the scares coming.
The web series serves up terror-filled stories from various creators such as Joonho Hwang and Seungchan Lee. Many of the tales read like urban legends, complete with stalker ghost girls and creepy emails from undead sources. There are serial killers and stupid teenagers, and ambitious creators entering haunted locations to get inspiration for their next story. As is often the case in these situations, don’t bank on a happy ending for those involved. In fact, brace yourself for an unsettling image and eerie feeling at the close of the episode.
Even though there are currently no future postings planned, there are 23 installments of The Vault of Horror: A Collection of Nightmares to dive into. Click here to begin reading on Webtoons.
