A word often heard around Halloween time is eerie, an adjective meaning "mysterious, uncanny, or weird, especially in such a way as to frighten or disturb".  I think the word itself even sounds a little spooky!

Here are a couple of sentences that I came up with:

I bolted upright in my bed,
the eerie cry that woke me still ringing in my ears.

I walked uneasily through the darkening woods,
trying to ignore the twisted, eerie skeletons of trees creaking in the wind.

How would you use eerie in a sentence?
