CREEPYPASTA: One Horrifying Reason You Should NEVER Download “KNOB.exe”

Today’s entry comes from the journal of Sally Goodman from Dayton, Ohio — one of three siblings who have posted on various discussion boards about the paranormal experiences which seem to have plagued the Goodman family for years. While her brothers John and Henry have written about freakish spectral intruders in their own homes, Sally’s […]

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, […]

Why Everyone Should Listen to the Chilling NoSleep Podcast

Imagine the scariest piece of fiction you’ve read — perhaps a creepypasta on the r/nosleep subreddit — and let a group of talented voice actors bring the text to life. It’s like a modern day audiobook, but good, and without all that self-motivational crap. This is what the NoSleep Podcast is all about. In 2010, the […]

CREEPYPASTA: A Popular YouTuber Deleted Her Account After She Saw This Chilling Footage

YouTube celebrity is a freaky, unpredictable thing — you never know what video is going to make its poster an overnight viral superstar, whether they desired that fame or not. But today’s creepypasta is a story of one unfortunate user whose virtual popularity took a decidedly dark and unexplained turn. The web-celeb in question goes […]

Five Seriously Nightmarish Things That Made News Recently

What, you thought horrifying headlines from the real world were going to just end with the close of the (admittedly awful) 2016 calendar? Hell no. Creepy incidents aren’t just continuing in the new year, they seem to be increasing in frequency. Maybe it’s just my imagination… but somehow, I doubt that. I can tell already… […]

The Ghosts of Disneyland and Other Creepy Disney Legends

Everyone knows Disneyland is the “happiest place on earth.” But many call it the “happiest haunted place on earth.” Yes, even the ghosts at Disneyland are said to be harmless – even helpful. As a Los Angeles native, I have been going to Disneyland since I was a baby, and never experienced anything creepy, but […]

CREEPYPASTA: The VHS Tape Bore His Name… and Its Grisly Contents Sealed His Doom

The origins of today’s gruesome viral tale are still something of a mystery, but the details appear to have be excerpts from the personal journal of a teenager in Belleville, Illinois, who identifies himself only as “John.” The first known entries begin shortly after his family relocated to the new city from Florida, where John […]

Trigger Happy: The Hallucinogenic Horror of Shaye Saint John

Back up, boys and girls… this is gonna get weird. In a way, the following story fits into the pantheon of creepypasta without necessarily being labeled as one; that’s mainly because the mythos which has grown up around the utterly bizarre, surreal and morbidly fascinating character named Shaye Saint John has long since overshadowed the […]

Gruesome Footage Shows a Giant Wasp Preying on a Huntsman Spider

Yay Australia! You never, ever disappoint us when it comes to giant, horrific creepy-crawly creatures that bite, sting, squeeze, leap on and generally terrorize other species… including Homo sapiens, of course. Infamous among that continent’s local fauna is the huntsman spider — one of the most aggressive and venomous arachnids in the world — which […]

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 […]

Eerie Facebook Image Allegedly Shows a Winged “Demon” Walking the Streets

It all started with a single image post from Facebook user Richard Christianson in Phoenix, Arizona… captioned only with this question: “What the hell do you see in this picture… for reals? Anybody?” Since that post, which popped up on New Year’s Day (and apparently has since been removed), all of Facebook exploded with theories […]
