If you're looking for a sad and chilling story to read this Halloween, Emily Carroll's webcomic story Out of Skin delivers a fantastically terrible dose of body horror. A woman comes across a pit filled with dead girls who refuse to stay hidden beneath the ground.

If you haven't read them before, I highly recommend reading some of Carroll's other short comics, especially His Face All Red, a creepy tale that uses its online canvas to particularly unnerving effect. Out of Skin is a much more mournful piece of horror, but one that is, nonetheless, truly horrifying.
