* ''Return to Ghost Camp'' has the Snatcher, a fox-like monster that murders one camper from Camp Full Moon each year, leaving their spirits unable to move on and forcing them to remain in the camp. To make matters worse, it can impersonate a human being almost flawlessly, so it's victim won't can't tell whether he/she is in danger until it's too late...

** One of the rivers is swarming with creatures that drag down anyone who attempts to cross it. [[NothingIsScarier It's never explained what these creatures are or what they're doing in the river]]. [[spoiler: Even the Snatcher isn't safe from them.]]
** The ending, [[spoiler: with Dustin trapped on the other side of the infested river, unable to cross over without being attacked by the river monsters.]]

* In ''Even More Tales to Give You Goosebumps'' there is a short story called "The Perfect School" where troublesome kids are sent to a reform school. Turns out [[spoiler:the school kidnaps the students and replaces them with "perfect" robots to send back to the parents. ''TheStepfordWives,'' [[ShoutOut anyone?]]]] The protagonist [[spoiler:succeeds in going back home. Oh sure, he managed to not get captured and replaced by a robot, but his parents ''expect'' a perfect robot, so now he has to spend the rest of his life -- or until he can move out -- being absolutely ''perfect,'' for fear he'll get found out and sent back...]]

*** Even worse near the end, when all the other masks come after Carly, the moaning and calling after her is genuinely chilling...

* In ''Be Careful What You Wish For'', the sequence where Samantha accidentally erases everyone else from existence is quite chilling. That chapter does a pretty good job of conveying what it would actually feel like to be the only person in the world. She's scared out of her mind from the total isolation, and starts to panic about how she can't take care of herself and has no idea what she's supposed to do now, and nearly breaks down crying before she manages to find Clarissa and undo the wish.

** Even before that, the whole part where Gabe and Sari are trapped in there is pretty horrifying. We're not spared the descriptions of how weak they're getting as they start to have trouble breathing.
** Ahmed is one of the scarier villains because of how understated he is. He seems more or less like a normal guy at first, then the sense that there's something not right with him starts building, and he just gets worse from there.

** There is one particular scene where Slappy confronts the heroes in a hall of mirrors, only appearing in one mirror at a time.

** There is one particular scene where Slappy confronts the heroes in a hall of mirrors, mirrors. A typical, cheesy scare... except that he only appearing appears in one mirror at a time.

** The whole story is just a long series of contradictions; even the aforementioned TwistEnding makes very little sense, in context or otherwise.
