This is going to be new from me, there will be images and .gifs, but relax, there aren't any jumpers.

.. I don't believe you! <_<

Well... OK, but trust me, I hate jumpers, I wouldn't put one in my post, I don't like cheap scares. If you still don't believe me, just wait and see that no one will post that they hate me, like they have to other people that posted jumpers.

No jumpers. One very dark image that shakes a little, one amusing little video clip, one still of some really good costumes, one ... rather odd family photograph, probably doctored rather than genuine, one clip of some horror movie, I guess, and one really rather pretty little girl. Looks like the could use a shower.

Okay, I looked at it. I regretted it, though. Little girls in horror are the most fucking horrific things you can ever put into them..

Here's my contribution, other than my stories of terror and shaking:

I am not leaving my office until morning...

EDIT: Also, a personal anecdote.

I often fall asleep with a fan on because I don't sleep well in hot rooms. A fan on low has never been loud enough to disturb my sleep. Lately though, I've been waking up to the mild sound of my fan becoming a deafening roar. It's probably just my mind playing tricks on me, but it's pretty disturbing all the same.

EDIT 2: Almost forgot.

I've never been there myself, but my friends have told me stories about a tunnel near where I live. When I ask them for details, they refuse to talk about it, but from what I hear you can go down the tunnel with a flashlight and fresh batteries and when you get down into the darkness a ways you'll start to hear voices. Suddenly, your batteries will die, all your electronics will stop working and you'll be left in total darkness. That's as far as they ever got...

the problem is they were using IE and IE is inherently vulnerable to evil, if they had been using firefox then at most they would have got is furry porn and everyone likes that

See, I would have suggested Safari, because even if as a browser its pretty useless, as far as warding of evil goes, its pretty reliant.

I like "This Man". It's not really SCARY, but it sure is creepy. Remember to look at the History and stuff. Sorry if someone already posted this, I don't wanna look through seventeen pages.

Weird... Not really scary or creepy, but it's weird if it's true. My guess is that if it is true, then it would be something equivalent to the fear of tall gray skinned monsters: Something we just seem to all know.

This thread won't stay dead...will it?

No. It has come here to make us all paranoid nervous wrecks (a mission it has fulfilled quite successfully, I might add) and now it won´t leave no matter how many times you rub your eyes and try to tell yourself, there´s nothing standing against the faint light slipping through the cracked door.

Remember to check under your bed before going to sleep.

I like how this thread just keeps going. Perhaps we can subject as many people to the terror by simply maintaining its prescience in the "Latest Posts" sidebar.

Julianking93:
I haven't seen this one used yet, but it's my personal favorite Creepy Pasta story.

Short, sweet and fucking horrifying:

The best horror story i've read so far on this thread, congratulations! i need to change my pants now! good times!

Why the hell did i read this thread with the lights off and my front wide open for my cat.

EDIT: i don't really have any stories to share, my life is very uneventful. Though there was one night where i woke up in the early hours of the morning and for that first second of being awake i swear i heard 2 male voices coming from the lobby. And one time i woke up facing the wall and i heard a footstep-like noise, like someone shifting their weight from one foot to the other. I was scared shitless and lay there frozen for a solid 20 minutes before turning round to find nothing there.

i'm sure that both these things happened in the weeks following me watching a few youtube videos about halloween (the film) and hearing the theme tune a few times yet i've only been properly scared by this thread once.

Say, I have been hearing of this one scary story, apparently a Creepypasta of Super Mario 64. Unfortunately, I am too much of a chicken to go look it up. So if anybody would wanna tell me about it, that'd be great. Also, here's a weird glitch in an unhacked game:

killer-corkonian:

That actually made me laugh haha

I have two tales you may have heard before.


You can't frighten me! I'm a coward i'm permanently scared. (cookie for reference, you geeky little tinkers)

Post up scary stories/pics/ or videos or make one.

OK - mine pale in comparison to most of the items on this thread, but they are homegrown (mine), and one is very real:


Damn those were scary!Felt authentic and genuine. Also was it really true about the second story? And if so who does he remind you of?

Thanks, man!
And yup, it's true. And at the risk of showing myself for a geezer, he looked kind like this:

But without the mustache. I think he may have been in jail for sometime at that point, though.

There's a somewhat similar scene in the beginning of Mystic River, and I really don't like that movie. Go figure.

WITHOUT the beard you say? Hmm, I think I'll have a word with my dad.

OT: I've got nothing to bring to the table, I'm afraid.

I have no idea, I just saved it from a creepy thread. Probably a movie, but I don't know which.

I told the truth though, didn't I? She is pretty and she does look like she could use a shower.

Speaking of pretty, where'd you get your avatar?

I was in the garden a couple of days ago and something scared the heck out of the birds downstream, then out of the birds in the next garden down, then out of the ducks on the stream by the fence, then there were two really heavy footsteps right in front of me, then nothing and the birds all calmed down and went back to feeding and so on. I never saw anything. I don't get it.

God, I've read most of this thread and i'm walking home late at night, past a graveyard.

Mr.Mattress:
Say, I have been hearing of this one scary story, apparently a Creepypasta of Super Mario 64. Unfortunately, I am too much of a chicken to go look it up. So if anybody would wanna tell me about it, that'd be great. Also, here's a weird glitch in an unhacked game:

Here you go:

I always liked Super Mario 64 when I was a kid. I remember playing it at my aunt's house all the time. Well, one day a pop-up appeared out of nowhere as I was watching gameplay footage on Youtube. I was a little startled, and was about to close the window, until I realized that it was a website showing of a mint condition copy of Super Mario 64 for sale. There was a picture and everything. I usually don't trust these things, but the feeling of nostalgia overpowered me, and I wanted to buy it.

The whole business was peculiar, seeing as how the owner of the game wanted the buyer to send an envelope containing $10 to and address on the site, instead of using something like PayPal. What made things even more strange was that when I tried to gain access to the website (I wrote down the URL) after encountering...problems with the game, the page was nowhere to be found.

A few days after the $10 was mailed, I got a package containing the new copy of the game. The first thing I noticed when I opened the small box was that the "official sticker" with Mario flying in the air was apparently peeled off or something. In it's place was a piece of duct tape with "Mario" crudely written on it in permanent marker. I felt a little ripped-off, but as long as the game worked, I didn't care.

I got out my Nintendo 64 and put the cartridge in. The screen turned on with the familiar Mario face that you could stretch and twist aimlessly. I remembered laughing all the time at the results as a kid and decided to mess around for old times sake. I moved the cursor over to Mario's ear and pulled it to elven proportions. I was going to do the same to the other ear, when the TV suddenly produced loud static. Mario's whole head started deforming and twisting in ways that I didn't even know were possible for the model. Random sound effects from the game started playing along with the static. As all this was occurring, I could hear a faint voice whispering in Japanese. The voice was stammering and whimpering.

I immediately shut off the game and tried again. I didn't bother with the Mario head this time. Just selected a new file and started playing.

When I selected the file, the game skipped the opening monologue by Peach and the courtyard outside. Mario was just placed right inside the castle. Creepier still, Bowser didn't say anything either. I tried to ignore it and played anyway. However I also noticed that their was no music. Just dead silence. Their weren't even any Toads around to talk to. The only door I could enter was the Bob-omb Battlefield. The other doors wouldn't even respond to my button commands.

The portrait to Bob-omb Battlefield wasn't the usual picture. It was just a stark white canvas. I was still trying to convince myself that these were just minor glitches, and that they wouldn't effect the gameplay at all. Once I entered the portrait, the image suddenly went from a blank canvas to the Lethal Lava Land painting. You know, that slightly unsettling image of the flame with the evil smile? Yeah, that's when I started getting really suspicious.

The mission select menu came up, and yet another weird detail was present. Instead of "Big Bob-omb on the Summit", the mission was called "TURN BACK". I have no idea what drove me to press A, but I did.

The level seemed normal. Everything was how I remembered it. I thought I could finally enjoy my favorite childhood game. But then I saw him. Luigi. I was absolutely shocked. He was never in this game. His model wasn't even a Mario palette swap. He looked like a completely original model. Luigi just stood there until I tried to approach him. He started running at unexpected speeds. I followed suite and went through the level. Strange things happened as I pursued him. each time I picked up a coin, the enemies and music would get slower, and the scenery would look darker in color and more morbid. It kept gradually getting worse until I collected a 5th coin. Then, the music just stopped. The enemies laid down on the ground like they were dead. I was seriously freaked out, but I kept chasing Luigi.

I went up the hill. No cannon balls rolled down trying to knock me over. I really wasn't surprised at this point. Luigi was always just out of my sight as I ran. Once I reached the summit, I saw yet another object out of place. A small cottage was all that was seen on the top of the hill. Luigi was nowhere to be found. The cottage was certainly od looking for a Mario game. It was old, plain, and broken down. Regardless of my fears at that moment, I had Mario enter the cottage.

As soon as the door closed. A disturbing picture of a hanged Luigi immediately popped up along with a very frightening scare chord. It sounded like a violin screech accompanied by loud piano banging. Mario fell to his knees and sobbed for roughly 5 minutes, then the screen irised-out.

I returned to the castle. Mario just slumped out of the painting. The image switched from the Lethal Lava Land portrait to the image of Luigi hanging himself. The room was different this time. It was now a small hallway. Toads with blank expressions and white robes lined the sides of the hallway. Their was another painting at the opposite end that just completely and utterly scared me. It was a picture of my family It wasn't even a photo from the time Super Mario 64 was released. It was a very, very recent photo. I remembered posing for it last weekend.

I reached for the on/off switch on the N64. There was no way I was going to play this anymore. However, when I flipped the switch, the game was still on. I flipped it back and forth, but to no avail. I tried unplugging the whole system, but it never left the screen. I was even still able to control Mario. I couldn't just leave it on forever...so I kept playing. I went to the photo of my family, and jumped in. Only one mission was available, of course. This one was called "Run, Don't Walk". I selected the mission. 'Let's-a-go'...

The level started in a flooded hallway with platforms floating on the water. Mario landed on one of these, and the camera turned to show what was behind. A silent black void was slowly approaching Mario. It didn't look like anything. It didn't even look like finished graphics. Just a giant, blocky, black blob. I started jumping from platform to platform. With no goal in sight, I kept running, the darkness slowly but surely gaining speed. This kept going on for what felt like hours. I was really doubting there would ever be an end. Mario was just going in circles. Finally, the black blob/void/thing caught up with Mario, and enveloped him in darkness. He didn't scream or resist at all. It just consumed him.

Mario fell out of the painting and back into the castle. I lost one of my 3 lives. The room was different now. Some of the Toads were gone, and the painting looked different. My family and I were in the same positions, but our bodies were partially decomposed. It looked too real to be photoshopped. It looked more like someone just took our dead bodies and posed them.

Regardless, I jumped into the painting again. Mario was in an small room. There was still only one mission available. It was called "I'm right here." spelled just like that. I selected the mission and prepared for the worst. Mario landed in a small, dark room. There no visible way out. The room was empty except for a piano in the corner. I knew what that meant. i was stuck in there with the Mad Piano. I approached it and it started chasing me as always. There was no way to damage it, so I had no choice but to let Mario take damage.

When he lost all his health, the usual death animation didn't happen. Mario just got mauled by the piano. He fell as his blood and guts spilled on the floor, and the camera panned to a top down view of his corpse. A distorted version of the merry-go-round music from Big Boo's Haunt played as the screen slowly transitioned from the in-game shot to a photo-realistic sketch of Mario's dead body in the same view as the shot. It was very unsettling. I was crying softly as I gazed upon the image. I lost another life.

The photo of my family was shown again. We were even more rotten then before. The view zoomed into the painting, like I was warping again. I was greeted with a shot of Peach's castle from the outside. The castle was crumbling in ruin. The fields were on fire. The sky was pitch black. Bowser's laugh played on a loop in the background as children mockingly chanted "You couldn't save her!". This went on for a long time, until, a close-up of of Peach's face accompanied by an extremely loud screech interrupted the loop without notice. Peach's mouth was wide open as if she was screaming, and her eyes were empty, black holes.

Suddenly, I was back in the hallway as Mario was once again ejected out of the painting. Now all of the Toads were gone, and me and my family looked positively repulsive. Maggots were wriggling around in holes in our flesh. Guts were spilling out of our bodies. My dad's eyeball was hanging loose from its socket. It was too much to bear, but something still urged me to trudge on. I jumped into the painting, with only one life remaining.

This time, there was no name for the mission. Just a blank space where the title would be. I selected the mission, and Mario landed on a very small island in the middle of the ocean. There was a solitary sign. It only read "DIVE". I did just as it said and entered the water.

The ocean was dark and empty. There were no fish. I wasn't even able to see anything in the water besides Mario. I swam downwards. I kept going for quite some time, yet Mario never ran out of breath. I counted roughly 10 minutes of swimming until I decided to go back up. Just as I turned Mario around, it came. A huge, and I mean huge Unagi the Eel came out of nowhere and swallowed Mario whole. I was dumbfounded. It went by so fast I wasn't even sure what I saw. The Game Over screen didn't show up. All that happened was a fade-out.

The photo of my family and I was shown again. We were plain skeletons now. Once again, it looked very real. I couldn't move the camera at all. It just stayed focused on the picture. I shut off the game and turned it on again. I chose my file, but it just went to the skeleton photo of my family. I tried this about 3 more times before giving up. I desperately wanted to stop, but some force kept me from walking away. I decided to select the only other saved file. The camera once again focused on the skeleton picture, but this time they were in a different position. As if they were a different family.

Uh-huh.. it was the mouth that freaked me the fuck out. >_<

Also, the picture is from an vampire anime roleplaying forum. Not sure it that's it's origin, but that's where I found it. (google search "anime vampire girl")

This video is "twisted".

Seriously? I guess we have a different kind of sense for horror. I don't find game creepy pasta scary. At all. They just seem boring to me. The only one I've liked was this Wii one, where you play a game where you kill pedestrians and at the end you find out that you killed real people.

Boring, scare-less movie, but nicely creepy poster:

I never did like cold winter nights, most people don't know why though. I was just young than, probably 8 or 9 but I still remember it so clearly. It was around 3:30 when a sound woke me, in a dream I heard a pot fall to the floor, though I didn't know if it was real or not. I sat up hoping to notice nothing from my bed and allow myself sleep once more. I was not that lucky.
To my surprise I saw a light coming from the kitchen. An uncommon shiver ran down my spine as I slowly stood up placing my foot on the cold hardwood surface. The air was dryer with every breath, and it was strangely cold, but I pressed on through the door of my room towards the kitchen.
Every movement seemed like a mistake. 'I should turn around now to my comfy bed', but it was to late I had made it to the kitchen and seen what made the noise.
A man stood with his head in the fridge, the door blocking his view of me. I let out a small peep in surprise of his presence. He closed the door and saw me. "Time to wake up!" he yelled as he stabbed me in the chest. A pot fell to the floor. I woke in my bed and didn't dare to investigate. I found my dad the next day in the snow. He had been stabbed.

Jesus Christ. Why do I keep coming back to this thread? I hate scary stories and pictures, but every time this thread pops up I have to go and have a look again and scare the crap out of myself.
That one with the face jumping out of the page really scared the shit out of me a few weeks ago, and I just read it again and screamed like a little girl.

To everyone being Freaked out
Listen to this while on this thread and no hibby jeebys will be had (AND THATS A FACT)
