Six years ago, a series of posts popped up on the “no sleep” subReddit, the forum for writers to share original horror stories that are so terrifying that they give you, well, no sleep. But this story, titled “Spire in the Woods,” was different than most. Following a teen boy who is convinced that the suicide of a schoolmate may be connected to a local legend, the story captivated thousands of readers until it spread past Reddit and became a viral phenomenon. The author Tony Lunedi published the story as a book in 2017 and now, it’s caught the eye of legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg himself.
Spielberg’s Amblin Partners is developing a Spire in the Woods movie, based on the viral Reddit ghost story. Now there’s a sentence you probably thought you’d never read.
