The ghost as it moans bloody fingers.

"The Ghost with the Bloody Fingers" is the twenty-ninth and final story included in the book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.


A man arrives at a hotel. He rents a haunted room but goes to sleep right away. But a ghost comes out of the closet moaning "Bloody fingers!" and the man packs his things and leaves.

Then a woman comes and rents the room, goes to bed and she hears the same thing the man heard and she leaves right away also.

A week later a young man with a guitar arrives and rents the room. He starts playing the guitar and the ghost moans the words again. The man puts down his guitar and tells the ghost to get a band-aid.
