He's given a room key and the busboy takes his suitcase and takes him up to his room. The man tips the busboy and decides to get some sleep seeming as its late.
As he's laying in bed trying to nod off he hears some scratching and crying coming from the room next door. He tries to ignore it but it gets louder and more profound.
After a little while he gets out of bed and puts a robe on. He leaves his room and goes to the room next door's door. He presses his ear to the door but hears nothing so he bends down and peeks through the keyhole. He lets out a little gasp and pulls away quickly when he sees a small girl sitting on the bed with her back facing the door.
After a little while of plucking up the courage he leans back in to look through the keyhole again but instead of seeing the girl all he sees is red.
Puzzeled the man goes back to his room a little creeped out. He hops back into bed and not before long he falls asleep.

The following day as he's cheeking out he tells the receptionist that the person in the room next to his was making scratching and crying noises last night. The receptionist gives him a puzzled look and tells him that they haven't rented that room out in years since the incident. The man, puzzled, asks what incident.
The receptionist explains that a young girl was strangled to death in that room. She scratched him and had his DNA under her fingernails so they quickly were able to catch the killer though.
The receptionist wipes a tear from her eye and says that she was the one that found the poor girls body. She said that the poor girl had gone completely pale white the only colour left in her was her eyes which had gone completely red from the blood.

Creepy enough, but I consider "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" and "Shadow - A Parable" much much more horrifying. I love Poe. I always get goosebumps on the last line.

My middle name comes from one of his poems.

The first time I heard the Tell-Tale Heart was in 2nd grade my teacher had played a Halloween record for the holiday party. If I remember it was read by Vincent Price. I didn't have the conception that it was fake so it gave me nightmares for a few months. Still gives me goose bumps to this day.

RE: Tales that may scare you.
Ray Bradbury is mostly known as a science fiction writer, but he could do horror as well, and some of his best stories are in that vein. I have trouble remembering titles, but The Veldt and The Small Assassin are two that come to mind. He had at least a dozen others as good as those, but I can't remember the titles.

How about Stephen King's short story The Boogeyman?

Oh yeah...and make sure your closet doors are closed all the way before you go to bed.

I remember "Fever Dream" as being really scary.

RE: Tales that may scare you.
Another one in a slightly more literary vein is "The Horla" by Guy de Maupassant. You can never quite be sure whether it's a real supernatural terror, or whether the narrator is just losing his mind, but it's terrifying either way.
