CREEPYPASTA: This Random Google Maps Search Went Horribly Wrong

Today’s nightmarish tale has been recounted in a few different variations, but the most chilling account comes from an unknown user who claims to have been the last to hear from the unfortunate person involved. There is no concrete evidence — beyond a series of text exchanges, from which the attached images were pulled — […]

CREEPYPASTA: This “Elf on the Shelf” Isn’t Just Watching… It’s Hungry Too

Our Creepypasta Christmas tradition continues with our second and final Holiday-themed entry for 2016 [be sure to check out our previous blood-freezing winter tale if you missed it], which will have you huddling a little bit closer to the warmth and light of a crackling fire… and looking over your shoulder for any sudden movements […]

CREEPYPASTA: Students Discover the Ultimate Horror After Opening a File Labeled “TEETH”

The following account was submitted to the Creepypasta Wiki by an unnamed user, who identifies himself only as a student at a small art college in an unknown city (the spelling suggests UK or Canadian origin). Despite the title, teeth.jpg may not contain a “Tooth Child” like SyFy’s creepypasta series CHANNEL ZERO, but it does […]

CREEPYPASTA: A Monstrous Fate — and a Shocking Twist — Waits Behind “DOORS”

Today’s powerful and horrific tale, credited to user aCJohnson and a favorite on the Creepypasta Wiki, contains elements common to the most violent and grisly viral legends… but in this particular case, the eeriest and most effective aspect of this story is the way in which it’s told. I’ll do my best to recreate that […]

CREEPYPASTA: The Night a THING Killed His Parents… and Left Four Words Scrawled in Blood

Sometimes the scariest tales are also the shortest (remember the notorious “two-sentence horror stories” meme?), and while it’s not as well-known as some others, one creepypasta often titled “The Message” is pretty solid support for that theory. It’s been told in different ways — sometimes involving another title, setup and narrator — but it’s consistently […]

CREEPYPASTA: War, Poverty and Desperation Lead to the Horror of “The Blind Man’s Favor”

Today’s tale may be brief, but its historical background is just as horrifying — because it reveals the lengths desperate people will go to in order to survive. In the days after World War II, the city of Berlin was reeling from its invasion by the Soviet Red Army. While first-stage relief efforts were underway […]

CREEPYPASTA: The Deadly Tale of “He Who Should Not Be Named”

Today’s viral tale of horror comes from multiple sources in several countries… so whether any of those very similar accounts could be verified (it’s practically impossible in cases like this), this story has certainly been making the rounds since it first surfaced anonymously in 2008. Despite some minor variations, most of the stories match on […]

CREEPYPASTA: Got a Little Rodent Problem? Pray It’s Not THE RAT KING

Today’s creepypasta begins with a horrific historical prologue involving a rare, disturbing and supposedly authentic phenomenon known as a “Rat King” — the antiquated term describing a nest of live rats whose tails become so tightly entangled that they are unable to escape, eventually dying of thirst and starvation, or possibly even devouring each other. An allegedly […]
