M.R. James Wrote the Scariest, Not-So-Holy Ghost Story for Easter
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastThough we never think of Easter as a day pocked by any kind of fear, it's certainly the holiday that represents the most macabre event out of any of them. Skinny, sage dude, who was trying to revolutionize the world with love, gets his hands and feet nailed to a cross, then spends the afternoon up there until he dies. Upon which, he is stuck in a cave with a rock jammed into its mouth, only to rise from the dead, get out, and find his friends to see if they need to test their belief in him by sticking their fingers in his nail holes.
