Jimmy Fallon invited the actors to read Halloween-themed tales written by kids.

Anna Kendrick and John Lithgow stopped by NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday for a Halloween-themed episode, complete with spooky stories. 

The two actors joined Fallon around a "campfire" to read scary stories written by elementary school students. 

Accompanied by creepy music from The Roots, the three of them read aloud while holding flashlights under their faces for added effect. Fallon's story, titled "The Anonymous Man," featured the line, "I was so scared my underwear almost came off" and ended with the ominous, "He could be in your house and he might scare your underwear off!" 

For Kendrick's turn, a "hungry ghost" went to McDonald's at the end of a long Halloween night and got a milkshake "because his mom said he could have one." Lithgow concluded the reading with "Ghost Boy," a tale about a boy who returned to school and "scared the fourth graders at recess." 

Kendrick, promoting the upcoming film Trolls, also told Fallon a story about her recent visit to a "sexy" haunted house, inspired by the video of the Tonight Show host walking through a scary haunted house with Kevin Hart.
