There were plenty of scary responses from teachers, aunts and uncles, but it was obviously the parents of Twitter who really delivered the goods. Keep scrolling for some intensely spooky kid quotes, courtesy of their dear old moms and dads.
My son, at five years old:— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) January 28, 2018
"Daddy, I'm gonna eat you up."
"Yeah, I'm gonna cut you into little pieces."
My daughter was about 5 when she says you’re the best mommy I ever had. I said I’m the only mommy you’ve ever had. She looks at me and says no your the 3rd one but I like you the best😳— iWakanda✊🏾👸🏿🤴🏾🎟 (@daahlingnikki) January 28, 2018
Walking with my 2-yo in a cemetery by our house. She says “mommy, who is that man in the red jacket by the stone house?” She pointed to a mausoleum. There was no one else in the cemetery. “He’s waving at me!” She waved back. “He’s coming over to talk!”— Kate, But the Tired Version (@Ardeospina) January 28, 2018
I was hiking alone in the woods with my son who was 7. It was eerie quiet. Out of nowhere he says “The woods demand a sacrifice.”— YOUNG MT (@MXTracy66) January 28, 2018
"We're all gonna die."— Iced Pound Cake (@ms_chel_ayyye) January 28, 2018
"I know sweetie. That's just part of-"
"You're gonna die tomorrow."
My daughter told me that the “place” she was in before she was born had a bunch of babies waiting to be born. Except they aren’t babies there. “They’re all 5 and they pick their mom and then they go in her tummy”.— Child Support Enthusiast (@BtSquared2) January 28, 2018

At the store. We'd had a nice day, picnic at the park.
Suddenly, he grabs my hand, squeezes REAL HARD and says, "Mama when you die, I'm gonna make a little-you so I can keep you always. Like with your skin, and eyes, but probly not your insides." All smiles.
Oh one of my kiddos drew a picture of an airplane and then said “all the people in the airplane are trapped.” I said...what?! She then drew orange flames everywhere and red blood anywhere else and said they had all died and no one would ever find them.— Cine Sister (@Amani_Marie_) January 28, 2018
When my daughter was 2 I found her under the table with one of my husband’s old children’s books, turning pages as if she were being read to. I asked her what she was doing. She said “reading with Grandma” my husband’s mother died two years before she was born. It was her book.— Michelle B. Young (@MichelleBYoung1) January 28, 2018
My mom went upstairs for a nap. My middle son asked her if she was happy she’d be seeing Jesus soon.— YourFavBlackAuntie (@greendoondoon) January 28, 2018
My 20-month old son, in a strong British accent, said "Mother, I'm VERY cross with you." We are not British and have no friends with that accent.— Nicole Radziwill (@nicoleradziwill) January 28, 2018
When my twins were born one of them took longer to talk. When she did start it was in fluent Spanish. Which we don’t speak at home. Nor does anyone who had come into contact with her at that time.— Sweet Jas Jones (@Jas_O_Mine13) January 28, 2018
When my niece was 7, she asked us why we were keeping all the dead grandmas in the attic.— Mean Fat Girl 🏳️🌈💄 (@Artists_Ali) January 28, 2018
Then she laughed.
