  • Georgie Meets Pennywise on Random Most Horrible Things That Have Happened In Stephen King Novels

    (#3) Georgie Meets Pennywise

    And George saw the clown’s face change. What he saw then was terrible enough to make his worst imaginings of the thing in the cellar look like sweet dreams; what he saw destroyed his sanity in one clawing stroke.

    One of Stephen King’s most terrifying creations, Pennywise is pure nightmare fuel. The clown's introduction, in which he kills poor Georgie, still stands as one of the most horrifying things Stephen King has ever written. What makes it even more horrible is how the body is found, with the young boy's slicker drenched in blood and his arm ripped off. Damn you, Mr. King.

  • Danny Sees The Woman From 217 Again on Random Most Horrible Things That Have Happened In Stephen King Novels

    (#6) Danny Sees The Woman From 217 Again

    The woman from Room 217 was there, as he had known she would be. She was sitting naked on the toilet with her legs spread and her pallid thighs bulging. Her greenish breasts hung down like deflated balloons. The patch of hair below her stomach was gray. Her eyes were also gray, like steel mirrors. She saw him, and her lips stretched back in a grin.

    Stephen King's Doctor Sleep is the decades-later sequel to The Shining, and judging by the opening few pages, it's every bit as terrifying. To be presented with such a horrific image right off the bat is a sign that the book you're reading will most likely traumatize you. In Doctor Sleep's case, that's entirely accurate.

  • The Gunslinger Reaches The Dark Tower on Random Most Horrible Things That Have Happened In Stephen King Novels

    (#19) The Gunslinger Reaches The Dark Tower

    And each time you forget the last time. For you, each time is the first time.

    Seven books, give or take what feels like a million pages, and Stephen King decides to end his Dark Tower saga with one of the most shocking moments ever put to page. The reader is horrified to discover that Roland has been on his quest to find the Dark Tower many, many, many times before. Every time he reaches it, he resets back to the beginning of his quest with no memory of what happened. It’s a definite shock for readers who followed the Gunslinger from the very beginning. 

  • Trisha Is Stalked By A Faceless Monster on Random Most Horrible Things That Have Happened In Stephen King Novels

    (#15) Trisha Is Stalked By A Faceless Monster

    In its glare Trisha saw something with slumped shoulders standing on the far side of the road, something with black eyes and great cocked ears like horns. Perhaps they were horns. It wasn't human; nor did she think it was animal. It was a god. It was her god, the wasp-god, standing there in the rain.

    Although not as well-known as some of his bigger novels, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is still quietly terrifying. Perhaps the scariest part is when Trisha realizes she's being followed by a faceless creature and the 9-year-old's mental state slowly starts to deteriorate. 

  • Susannah Is Assaulted By A Demon on Random Most Horrible Things That Have Happened In Stephen King Novels

    (#9) Susannah Is Assaulted By A Demon

    A lot of horrible things happen in the Dark Tower series, but one of the most graphic is the sexual assault of Susannah by the Speaking Demon in the third book, The Waste Lands. Even though she's able to tap into her tougher personality, Detta Walker, to help fight back, it's still an extremely horrifying situation.

    It also doesn't help that she becomes pregnant with a demon baby.
