Help Me Name My New Horror Collection

I'm finishing off a collection of 17 horror stories and need to come up with a name for it.

Option 1 is to name the collection after one of the included stories. As an approach that would lend itself to my future short story collections in any genre, though it only works if one of the stories in the collection has a distinctive name! Dean Koontz used this approach with Strange Highways.

Option 2 is to just come up with a title that reflects the content and genre, but isn't necessarily the title of a particular story. Stephen King used this approach with Night Shift and Skeleton Crew. Some authors then re-use a key word in future collections: for example, Graham Masterton has published four collections of short stories, Fortnight of Fear, Flights of Fear, Faces of Fear and Feelings of Fear.

Please help me out using the form below (or go here if it doesn't display properly). Thanks!
