Serving up Fright to the Net...

Are you hungry for a little fright?

Haunting you since 1998.
Celebrating our 25th year online.


Salems Marsh has been long forgotten, but there are many dark secrets buried here.
Do you dare uncover them?

Welcome to FRIGHTBYTES.COM, home of one of the first virtual haunts.
See if you can survive the torturous twists and turns in our haunted domain.
Your decisions will determine your fate in our interactive horror stories.
Many have come before you. Sometimes in the quiet stillness of my tomb I can hear their screams....
such delicious music to my ears.

Many of the stories are graphic novel text adventures where your decisions affect your fate. Some of the stories have multiple paths and different story endings. You are the "star" in the stories, either as a hero, or an unfortunate victim! The stories are slowly roasted in evil thoughts and deeds with a heavy glaze of nutty madness and immersed with a side of fear. Everything is seasoned with mystery and sprinkled with goosebumps and cold chills.

Now begin your journey and travel into the many haunted realms of Salems Marsh.
