The Basketball is a scary story about a boy who breaks into his school gym. The pictures come from a short Malaysian horror film called “3 Doors to Darkness: Turn Over”.


There was a boy who loved to play basketball. However, nobody was allowed to use the gym at his school. They said it was haunted and there were rumors that a female teacher had been murdered there many years before.

Every day, after school, he would go home and practice for hours in his back yard. However, it just wasn’t the same. He needed to practice on a full-size basketball court.

One evening, he decided to break into the school gym. He waited until everybody had left the school. Then, he broke the lock on the door and went inside.

All of the lights were off and he could hear the sound of a basketball bouncing on the ground.

Thud! Thud! Thud!

He assumed someone else was playing basketball, but when he opened the door to the gym, he found it was empty.

The boy turned on the lights and walked out into the center of the court. He picked up the basketball that was lying there and began shooting some hoops.


All of a sudden, the lights went off and he was plunged into darkness. All around him, he heard the sound of basketballs bouncing on the ground. It sounded like there were hundreds of them.

Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud! Thud!

The boy was scared. He didn’t know what to do. He just stood there trembling in the pitch black.

Then, he heard another sound.

Clack! Clack! Clack! Clack!

He couldn’t figure out what it was.

Clack! Clack! Clack! Clack!

From the darkness, a basketball came rolling towards him. It stopped at his feet.

Cautiously, the boy bent down and picked it up.

All of a sudden, the lights came back on and when the boy looked down he was horrified to see that it wasn’t a basketball he had picked up, it was a woman’s severed head and she was gnashing her teeth.

Clack! Clack! Clack! Clack!
