Keyhole is a creepy story about a man who stayed in a strange hotel and encountered something very odd indeed.


A man went to a hotel and walked up to the front desk to check in. The woman at the desk gave him his key and told him that on the way to his room, there was a door with no number that was locked and no one was allowed in there. Especially no one should look inside the room, under any circumstances. So he followed the instructions of the woman at the front desk, going straight to his room, and going to bed.

The next night his curiosity would not leave him alone about the room with no number on the door. He walked down the hall to the door and tried the handle. Sure enough it was locked. He bent down and looked through the wide keyhole. Cold air passed through it, chilling his eye. What he saw was a hotel bedroom, like his, and in the corner was a woman whose skin was completely white. She was leaning her head against the wall, facing away from the door. He stared in confusion for a while. He almost knocked on the door, out of curiosity, but decided not to.

He crept away from the door and walked back to his room. The next day, he returned to the door and looked through the keyhole. This time, all he saw was red. He couldn’t make anything out besides a distinct red color. Perhaps the inhabitants of the room knew he was spying the night before, and had blocked the keyhole with something red.

At this point he decided to consult the woman at the front desk for more information. She sighed and said, “Did you look through the keyhole?” The man told her that he had and she said, “Well, I might as well tell you the story. A long time ago, a man murdered his wife in that room, and her ghost haunts it. But these people were not ordinary. They were white all over, except for their eyes, which were red.”

    “He bent down and looked through the keyhole. Cold air passed through it, chilling his eye…..”
    LOL I was laughing so hard at dis

    It’s something called curiosity. The fact that he was staring at the woman’s eyes give me creeps. Curiosity isn’t always a good thing. Don’t get too curious about things (for those who are always curious in what’s in front of them :P).

    Wow. Well it scared my brother that’s for sure my little brother asked me to read him a story from this website. I’ve been on it for a while just made an account. Anyways I’m reading off names of the stories and this one caught his attention. I read it to him and now he’s not talking to me and he is afraid to go to bed right now. I feel bad but at the same time it helped me get him back for all the times he came up behind me and scared me. Anyways good story :)

    People are always curious. When you forbid them to do something, the curiosity level will increase because it is human nature to discover something new and foreign. That’s how we discover airplane, telephone, electricity and last but not least, bloody red eyes of a ghost… kudos bro! Curiosity always kills the cat.

    Oh, are you realy so scared? Have you seen “The Ring”?
    After I saw it, I was scared, but I went asleep. After I
    read this stories, I’m not as scared as by “The Ring”, and
    I realy wanna sleep. But I think that ” Woman in black” is a terrifying film!!!

  25. pinkKaygana says

    at first i didnt get it. aliens came to the hotel, the husband murdered the wife. when she said that their eyes were red, i didn’t get it cuz i thought that only the colored part was red ( u know how some ppl have blue, some ppl have borwn eyes etc.) but only later i understood that their hole eyes r red, and that the woman was staring back at him… im scared.
