Spiders, Sharks, Scorpions and More Horrors from the Headlines

Face it, folks: the world we live in is getting weirder by the minute. Seriously, at this point, the urge to retreat into a world of fictional monsters is nearly impossible to resist. But journalists still have a job to do (even if we’re just writing about demon sightings, botched exorcisms and… uh, Florida?). Honest, well-researched […]

We Dare You to Watch This Man Feed a Room Full of Deadly Cobras

While I believe we’ve done our humble part in supplying enough horrifying spider stories to keep arachnophobes in therapy for a couple more years (how else is your psychiatrist going to pay for that new swimming pool?), I fear I’ve been remiss in balancing those out with sufficient nightmare fodder for ophidiophobes — that is, […]

Viral Video Shows “Dinosaur-Sized” Alligator Stomping Through Florida Park

Well, no sooner did we publish a feature about bizarre things happening in Florida (I like to think of that state as “the Australia of the US”), someone down there must have decided we’re not through yet.

CREEPYPASTA: Is This the Actual Cursed Video Known as THE GRIFTER?

When I wrote my first article on the creepypasta phenomenon for this site, I covered some of the most notorious viral legends that, at the time, might have been dwarfed by the long, scary shadow of Slenderman — but are just as disturbing (if not more so) and widely-shared among creepypasta fans. Since then, these […]

Well, here we go, folks… it’s the first week of 2017, and you know what that means: no more “Year in Review” lists! [Oh relax, I read ’em too… hell, I even wrote one.] I understand you’re still stumbling from the non-stop beatdown that was 2016, but I’ve got a journalistic responsibility to round up […]

Can You Face the Horror That is 2016: THE MOVIE?

Yeah, I know… 2016, right? Just a few days left and this year is still finding new ways to kick us all in our metaphorical gonads. At least it’s been a damn fine year for horror cinema… and that’s no accident, either. We create imaginary monsters to better arm us for battling the real ones. […]

The Creepy Story Behind the Infamous “Lost in the Catacombs” Video

Long before it gained worldwide viral notoriety, the footage you’re about to see was part of a documentary which aired in slightly different versions on multiple TV networks in the early 2000s — most notably a Halloween special on ABC Family (now Freeform) and SCARIEST PLACES ON EARTH on the Sci-Fi Channel (now SyFy).
