In typical Walgreens fashion, I’m getting ready for Halloween a teensy bit early this year (or maybe my boyfriend just asked for me to post “SOMETHING SCARY”) with some good old fashioned Creepypastas! If you’re game for going to bed with the lights on tonight, check out my top ten scariest.
Creepypastas. Some are spooky, some are iffy, some are just plain awful. But then there are those stories that just get to you. You can’t help but think about them, hours, days, weeks after you read them, and then they won’t gtfo of your brain. Or your sleep. Or your dreams. Here are those stories.
Warning! Don’t be a silly sack of fish! If you hate scary stories, don’t read the post below. Because, well, it’s kinda spooky. Go watch something cute instead.
10. THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPH
This one isn’t quite as creepy as it is just awesome. It’s the kind of “stinger” story that gets you at the end with it’s cunning ways of Creepypasta Fridge Logic.
In the middle of the night Tom was awakened by a tap on his window. It was like a nail tapping. He got scared. After the tapping he heard a giggle. He saw a shadow near his window, so he got out of his bed, walked toward his window, opened it up and followed the giggling. By the time he reached it, it was gone.
9. WAKE UP
Another fridge logic one. Frightening and sad, the horror in this one comes when you think about it, just a little bit. Click the image to go to the text version of this story.
While this “Lost Episode” pasta fails to deliver initially, it makes up for in the haunting final paragraph. Oh, Buttercup, you always were a little bit off…
…I rushed home to see what this mysterious disc had in store for me. With my hands trembling, I lifted the shiny disc from the envelope, and my heart fluttered with delight when I saw that the DVD had “Buttercup.avi” written on it in purple sharpie. Buttercup, as I said before, had always been my favorite, and I was incredibly anxious to watch this episode, that for one reason or another, had not been released, but left next to a chair at a dinner party. I put the disc into my DVD player, and it started instantly, no title screen, no credits, nothing.
Here’s one you may not have heard. While more of an outline for a Creepypasta hack than a story itself, its subtle horror is still sure to send a few chills down your spine.
No ****** up music at first, no messed up art, no anything like that except for pikachu sneezing, and at most someone might think that is just a little quirk as it’ll be advertised as “More interactive with your pikachu! He can get a little sick, but he can get better with the help of Nurse joy! It’s playing with pikachu like you never experienced before!”
6. COME FOLLOW ME
Oh look, another Pokemon story. Get used to it, there are a lot of them. This one’s a long pasta and a bit of a stretch, so take it with a grain of salt. People may complain about the unrealistic climax, but it still makes me darn glad I never owned Pokemon Red anyway.
“I think he was a very weak man. I think he wanted to prove himself regardless of this point… I think he wanted to make himself known for something special, something that would make people forget about the way he looked and pay attention to the powerful mind that lay inside his skull.. Unfortunately for him, however.. heheh.. He didn”t have much of a mind to back up that reasoning.”
5. POKEMON BLACK
Probably the best Pokemon creepypasta out there. And believe me, I have scavenged for them. This one plays on a variety of emotions — a good refresher for those of you tired of the same old hyper-realistic skeletons popping out in every story.
The cry of the defending Pokémon would be heard, but it was distorted, played at a much lower pitch than normal. The battle screen would then reappear, and the defending Pokémon would be gone. If used in a battle against a trainer, when the Pokéballs representing their Pokemon would appear in the corner, they would have one fewer Pokéball. The implication was that the Pokémon died.
4. THE OTHER WATCHER
Here’s a short pasta that seems a bit farfetched at first, but pays off when you realize what was happening. It never fails to make you want to run around the house screaming!
She explained that it was a storeroom, and that it was out of bounds. She reminded him of this several times before allowing him upstairs. So he followed the instructions of the woman at the front desk, going straight to his room, and going to bed. However the insistence of the woman had piqued his curiosity, so the next night he walked down the hall to the door and tried the handle.
3. BEN DROWNED
Maybe you’re groaning at my inclusion of this oldie but goodie (so maybe I shouldn’t have done this), but even though it’s gone horrendously viral, it still hits home with some serious spooks! Warning you now, it’s a longpasta.
I dreamed that it was following me in my dream, that I would be minding my own business when I’d feel my neck hairs stand up on end. I would turn around that thing… that horrible, lifeless statue would be staring with those empty eyes right at me, merely inches away. In my dream I remember calling it Ben, and never before had I had a dream that I could remember so vividly.
2. CANDLE COVE
Of all the creepypastas in pastaland, Candle Cove has to be my favorite. There’s a formidable essence of “I cannot believe they just did that” to this story, which is just downright lovable, making this one a PASTA CLASSIC.
It took place in Candle cove, and it was about a little girl who imagined herself to be friends with pirates. The pirate ship was called the Laughingstock, and Pirate Percy wasn’t a very good pirate because he got scared too easily. And there was calliope music constantly playing. Don’t remember the girl’s name. Janice or Jade or something. Think it was Janice.
And when you’re done, check out the insane video!
I cannot even BELIEVE what they did at 0:57… how’d they get that past the censors?
1. SQUIDWARD’S SUICIDE
It’s not one of my favorites. But it sure is one hellish, nonstop nightmare of a ride. Brrr! Not recommended for those who might be, what’s the word, squeamish?
We hear Spongebob laughing outside and Squidard stops, yelling at him to keep it down as he has a concert that night and needs to practice. Spongebob says okay and goes to see Sandy with with Patrick. The bubbles splash screen comes up and we see the ending of Squidward’s concert. This is when things began to seem off.
There are a lot of videos on Youtube for this: here’s just one great scene of the lost episode to end all lost episodes:
I really shouldn’t have written this at two in the morning. I think I’m going to go write some happy Joshua Kiryu fanfiction now… hauuu….
