This Pint-Sized Pennywise Cosplay is Both Adorable AND Terrifying

A tiny new incarnation of the world’s scariest clown is somehow making the entire internet scream “Awwww…” and “AAAAAHHHH!” at the same time. But whether you feel like running in terror or giving this little guy a hug (choose wisely), I think three-year-old Louie Tilghman would take the top prize in just about any costume […]

CREEPYPASTA: If You Find This Envelope in Your Mailbox… You’re Doomed

While the majority of creepypastas have unknown origins, there’s a very good reason the teller of this short but potent tale wishes to remain anonymous — a reason you’ll soon come to appreciate. The post which made its way to the Creepypasta Wiki is the only record of this author’s terrifying encounter with an intruder […]

CREEPYPASTA: A Doomed Explorer’s Journal Documents the Terrifying Search for “Subject C”

The horrors of World War I are well documented by historians, journalists and many other chronicles of humanity’s atrocities, and among the worst of these is the development of chemical and biological weaponry — deployed in the bloody trenches of Europe on a massive scale, with apocalyptic results. But countless whispered rumors and hastily hidden […]

Fisherman Tweets Pics of Deep-Sea Creatures, Entire World Screams in Horror

My first draft of this story was basically “NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE,” all caps, over and over again, occasionally interrupted by “Oh wait, this one’s kinda cute,” then another avalanche of “Aw-hell-no.” As I recall, this went on for about six and a half paragraphs. For the sake of journalistic integrity, I decided to delete that […]

But apparently, they were real… and one of the most famous was the Penn Hills Resort. Located in the Pocono […]

A Visit to NECROMANCE — Hollywood’s Macabre One-Stop Goth Shop!

If you were an aspiring Goth in Los Angeles in the early 1990s — as so many of us were — then you likely knew all of the best joints to grab your garb. Goths required, and still require, a very specific uniform, and finding proper Goth clothes has always been a bit of a […]

The True Story Behind the Legendary “Lost Ending” of THE SHINING

Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING has one hell of an ending: maniac Jack Torrance’s frozen grimace, followed by the slow push-in on the antique photograph on the Overlook Hotel wall, is one of the most memorable one-two gut-punches in film history. But Kubrick’s original version of the film included another scene inserted between these two iconic […]
