Two-Sentence Horror refers to the subreddit /r/TwoSentenceHorror that was created in early 2014.

Screenshots from the subreddit have migrated to other platforms like Twitter over the course of its seven-year history.
Two-sentence horror stories existed in literature before the official subreddit was created. In fact, there had been a precursor website called TwoSentenceStories.com that was created in 2009. This website hosted two-sentence stories of all literary genres, however, most of them were horror-related.
