Spine-Tingling Video of Dad Putting Son to Bed Will Creep You Out

tuck me in short film

Putting kids to bed can be a nightmare. Whether they're asking for five more minutes of playtime or want just one more book read to them, it can be honestly horrific. And one dad took that to a completely different level. In the short film "Tuck Me In" by Ignaci F. Rodo, watch the horror one dad faces when tucking in his son.

It's short and sweet ... maybe. OK, really, it's a one-minute horror film that'll unfold right in front of your eyes and make you rethink your nightly routine.


Take a minute, gather yourself, and maybe check under the bed one last time.

The story originally comes from justAnotherMuffledVo, a Reddit user who submitted this terrifying story last year under the "What is the best horror story you can come up with in two sentences" thread. That's when he posted this gem:

I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

Needless to say, I think he won.

But as spooky and bone-chilling as the clip may be, it does have some truth. Maybe not the whole second child angle, but admit it, Mom and Dad, you get scared too.

Kids constantly have fears of monsters under the bed or in the closet, but parents can get the heebie jeebies too. That's not only reserved for the children. So next time your kid starts screaming about the monsters in the closet, go easy on him! Put your brave face on, check around the room, and make sure it's all safe and sound before it's lights out.

What is your biggest fear at nighttime?
