This Footage of a Morgue Door Slamming by Itself is the Creepiest Thing You’ll See Today

It’s always been a little unnerving to me how rapidly a short and simple video clip can freak out hundreds of thousands of people overnight via social media — most likely it’s the unexplained element, that lack of verifiable backstory, combined with a suggestion of the macabre, that can turn a minute or two of […]

Have You Tried “The GET OUT Challenge” Yet? Maybe These Clips Will Inspire You

Few memes explode quite like “challenge” videos — and social media is always on the lookout for the latest bizarre stunt, not to mention participants willing to rise to the occasion.

Five Extremely Creepy Things Making the News Right Now

I’m pretty sure you’ll agree 2017 has been off to a very rocky start… but hey, at least most of us aren’t being terrorized on the regular by menacing grass-goblins or disembodied shadow-lurkers (I’m assuming this, of course; I don’t really know your life). Alas, that can’t quite be said for some of the people […]

GRAVE ROBBING FOR MORONS: Is This Creepy VHS Footage for Real?

“This Video is for Fun.” Thus reads the unofficial cover art for this notorious half-hour video, allegedly sourced from a VHS tape in the late 1980s or early 1990s, then dubbed and re-dubbed for circulation and sale among bootleg collectors, often (literally) under the table at horror conventions and through mail-order tape trading communities. It’s […]

A Rare Glimpse at Kurt Cobain’s Homemade Horror Movies

Nirvana was one of the defining bands of the 1990s, and a staple in the CD players of Generation X-ers like myself. The day lead singer Kurt Cobain shot himself to death is still a fresh memory, even more than twenty years later. It plays like a horror movie in my mind: coming home from […]

Today’s short, sharp and shocking tale begins with a simple declaration of fact: Beth Parson is dead. She’s been dead for over a century, in fact.

VIDEO: Be Sure to Keep Your Car Running on Crybaby Bridge!

Some of America’s spookiest myths and urban legends come from the good ol’ Midwest — aliens, ghosts, even entire towns haunted by bad luck and superstition. One of the most widespread urban legends that I’ve heard my entire adult life is that of “Crybaby Bridge.” Nearly every state in the Midwest — from Oklahoma to […]
