One of my favorites is this one involving Majora's Mask and there was one where a creepy spider thing from Oblivion(?) started stalking the guy but I can't remember enough about it to track it down.

Core Theory is nerdy garbage that tries to take something the entire point of which is to be ultimately vague and ineffable and systematize and categorize it. It's like making D&D stats for Existential Dread.

Some good modern web horror/creepypastas:

But I'm sure whatever it was, I'll have plenty of time to think it when I'm still wide awake at 4am, listening to every crackle, thud and bump in the heating system and wondering which of them aren't just metal expanding.

The thing is, as much as I love this stuff, I can't play any kind of scary/horror video game. Anything FPS with monsters that jump out, anything freaky.

It all goes back to Stephen King, and It, which gave me my biggest irrational fear. I'm terrified that the horrible monster on screen will stop doing whatever it's doing, and look directly at the camera. Except it's not looking at the camera, it's looking directly at me, and will then jump up and force it's way through the TV and, well, I doubt it would be asking me if I'd like to have some tea.

I downloaded the Slenderman game well over a year ago. I have never played for more than a scant few minutes because I can't stand all that running around in the dark, wondering what might come looming out of it. I mean, I haven't even played it long enough for anything to happen. Just seeing the darkness spread out beyond the tiny beam of flashlight gets to me.

I was doing pretty well in Amnesia til I came to the bit where you're in a slightly flooded basement. You can see the footsteps of something invisible walking in the water, but if you're not in the water it can't get you. Fair enough, so let's just pick our way from pile of rubble to pile of rubble to pile of rubble to... oh. Oh dear, I'm going to have to run across open water to get to that, aren't I?

Oh well, I didn't need to see the rest of this game. Or still have Amnesia installed.

I was just remembering the first time I watched The Ring.* I was home, alone, and it was about one am. I'd already turned down the lights, popped in the DVD to let it go through the annoying Coming Soon stuff, and walked over to the stove to make some jiffy-pop. Most DVD menus show bits of the movie, have a little theme music playing. The Ring menu? It plays bits of the tape from the movie, complete with horrifically jarring sounds and noises. I wasn't, in anyway prepared for it, and it freaked me right the fuck out.

* The American version is... well, it's just better. The Japanese one is badly dated, and the 'special effects' (ooh, lets turn the film negative!) are painfully bad. Juon, on the other hand, is better than The Grudge, though there, the American version isn't bad at all.

I was really into Morrowind for a while, so I thought this Morrowind creepypasta was really well done.

It's about a mod and its origins in the dark corners of the internet is plausible, then you get the story of the guy who can crack the code to the mod, and then...

It builds slowly and if you've played Morrowind you just get gradually more terrified. Great stuff.

It's interesting to me how much of this is in the Frankenstein vein of science overreach turning to Gothic menace, though rarely with the dedicated technophobia of Shelley. Is it because we just don't understand so much of the tech around us that we start to fear it?

In any event, the ones that I really like are the ones based on madness instead of the supernatural. While I tend to think of folklore as fun and cool to explore, it just doesn't spook me the same way that derangement does. (And not even violent, honestly. Though usually the best end in suicide.)

This shit weirds me out. Especially knowing it's all under an umbrella and I can go looking for it too easily.

Here are some good ideas I'd like to develop into nightmare fuel, or just exorcise:

One time there was a series of Dell Computers (GX150) that we had in small minority (10 machines out of 200) or so. Over time we discovered that these computers would spontaneously reboot when certain images were brought on-screen. Usually a flurry of specific activity would trigger it, and typically if you were connected to a machine with VNC (a remote accessmsupport / administration tool) there was a chance the machine would reboot when you disconnected and the user's wallpaper was restored (which otherwise slowed down the remote access).

This was a hard reboot, as in the power supply would audibly click. Eventually the person who experienced the problem most (1-2 times a month) found a JPG file that would reproduce the problem every time. And you could open the JPG in different viewers, convert it to different formats, take a screen shot of it, etc.

So I realized the actual act of displaying the image in video RAM was triggering the issue at any color depth, resolution setting, etc. It happened in Linux and Windows. I sent the file to the other GX150 users and 8 out of 10 had the problem. These machines were out of warranty but the problem was weird enough (I could find nothing about it online) that I reported it to Dell on a lark.

I reported the problem to Dell and was pretty good at using their email form at the time to get a tech out without any back-and-forth. Sure as shit they said they'd be out the next day to replace the motherboards free of charge despite being a year out of warranty.

The tech was incredulous being a random outsourced guy but had worked with this model and never seen it before. I reproduced the problem for him and a new motherboard with the same revision number resolved the issue. He was unable to "tattoo" the new motherboards with service tags from the previous motherboard, a typical practice to ensure your computer "knew" its service tag within any operating system. It just wouldn't take.

So far this is all true except for the reason he didn't tattoo them (I don't know, probably laziness)...but while he was working on the replacements I had one machine up and tried downsizing the image down to ridiculous levels until it was nothing but a single pixel of RGB(78,83,65). This would still create the issue. I created a fresh new image by hand with the same single pixel RGB and couldn't reproduce the issue, and instead got a giant blue STOP error, except it said

STOP.

That's 90% real stuff but I have another fucking one, where I wrote an old school text file describing a weird one-off utility I built. The text file has been identified as malware from day one -- I didn't use antivirus in 1993 or whatever, but some of my friends freaked out when it was identified as a virus and told me about it. I fired up F-PROT and sure enough, it was quarantined. The actual executable wasn't flagged at all, and what it did was modify a single line of "Quake C" that was visible as plain text inside some of the original Quake demo data files. This demo had no monsters but there was plenty of code and textures for them all including the shambler. I just had to figure out what their names were and could summon a single instance of them accordingly.

I could never figure out what part of that text file was causing the issue. It was a program called LHQHACK.TXT so I figured the "HACK" in the file name might be it, but that had nothing to do with it, renaming the file still triggered detection and still does to this day, but I could never remember the name of the virus until I tried to open it now. I never really understood why the "shambler" was so creepy.

Kris Straub’s ‘Candle Cove’, a ‘lost TV show’ story and certainly among the best creepypasta out there

This is the one story I found and read and... meh. Either I'm too jaded, or the fun is in what these stories start (as I see upthread there are variations etc.) but this wasn't particularly scary or believable as forum posts to me. Surely creative but seems like it could've been written in about 20 minutes.

I kind of love creepypasta like Candle Cove, Dead Bart, and Suicide Mouse, because it captures the real feeling of having seen something weird and scary on TV when you were a kid, swearing that it was a dream, and suddenly finding a few people that can confirm that they saw the same thing.

It's usually something that happened long enough ago that the technology didn't exist to record it, or it's short enough that nobody thought to do so.

And it's a real enough phenomenon: Check out this entry on the Lost Media Wiki about Cracks (1975) a rarely aired Sesame Street short that frightened not a few children back in the day.

Maybe I just enjoy it because, as messed up as the stories sometimes are, I have been rewired to think there is MEDIA TREASURE somewhere in there, and even if it's a load of horseshit, it still hits my "OOOH DISCOVERY TIEM" buttons.

louche mustachio, you might be interested in the story of Cry Baby Lane, a Nickelodeon horror movie that was shown once and never again.

The interest prompted Nickelodeon to show it again, promoting it as the movie so scary it was banned from tv!

Guy Smiley: I found a camera in the woods... (There's a 2004 MeFi thread about this, but it looks like all the links are now dead.)

YES!! I was going to post here asking about this exact thing because I haven't been able to find it since then! This was probably the first form of creepypasta I ever found and boy, did I scare the shit out of all my friends on myspace when I showed it to them. I posted it everywhere I could with the whole idea of it being that I actually did find that camera in the woods. It's brilliant, I love it.

House of Leaves is one of my favorite books and works so well as a creepypasta archetype. It's too bad that it'd be almost impossible to film, unless you strictly did the entire Navidson camera recordings.

Are there examples of creepypasta from Usenet or anything similar? I figure there must be some examples.

Alright this was a bizarre experience. I had no recollection of this short while reading about it but as soon as it started playing it was "blam" and I was taken back to me as a kid. Holy crap I remember this... I stopped it and thought okay there's going to be a monkey and they go into the wall and then there is this monster. I re-felt what it was like when I saw this. Not creeped out but utterly fascinated by it's weirdness.

Amazing that something only played 11 times over three years made enough of an impression to bring back such a 'feeling' recognition. I can see why it would be frightening to kids.

There's a comment on the Morrowind story about a modder who accidentally created creepypasta. It's pretty great and shows how seeds develop that turn into these stories:

So I made this morrowind mod. I didnt want anyone cheating to get past my puzzles. I worked hard on them! So I had an idea. Void Monsters. Basically, I inserted invisible monsters (not normal invisible, like the spell, but ones that didnt have graphics that were displayed.) into the spots outside of the normal game boundaries. They could only ever interact with the player if you turned off clipping. Now when I made this, I only considered the possibility that You'd be attacked if you went out of the cell. I neglected the fact taht turning off collision would give them time to get into the cell. Yes, in what was clearly a mistake, I didnt alter their pathing behavior. So they'd move around.

So after not very long at all, there would be dozens, hundreds in the game world. Just about anywhere. Cause they'd respawn instantly if they were no longer where I put them. Again, seemed like a good idea at the time. Well all of this is not really that big a deal... except for a problem.

I also fixed with this mod numerous in-game scripting issues. Like one that makes your game crash if you tried to use this pendant that's supposed to teleport you back to Tel Fyr. It was just a comma where a period should've been, real simple stuff. But apparently some people took parts of my mod, simply removed the additional dungeons I'd made, and used mine as a basis for other bug fix mods. I guess with all the normal bugs in the game, no one was surprised to randomly die.

So yeah. A very large number of mods out there have been, for lack of a better term, infected by my void monsters. And I have no way of finding out which they are.

The article mentions the shorter creepypasta that are structured like jokes, and I really love those. The one they use is good, and I also like:

A young girl is playing in her bedroom when she hears her mother call to her from the kitchen, so she runs downstairs to meet her mother.

As she’s running through the hallway, the door to the cupboard under the stairs opens, and a hand reaches out and pulls her in. It’s her mother. She whispers to her child, “Don’t go into the kitchen. I heard it too.”


Some of longer ones are also good, but to do it well in three or four sentences is something I love.

This is a very good rundown of the genre. I'd probably have included a bit about SCP, especially since SCP articles have begun circulating as creepypasta (often without attribution).

I can't stress how much the "ritual" creepypasta sucks, though. I think the article author isn't hard enough on it, because it's basically all incredibly unimaginative, and also makes it entirely obvious that the author is a 14-year-old wannabe goth. Seriously, it's incredible how many rituals depend on clove cigarettes, specifically.

> I don't know if Ted's caving page is strictly creepypasta, but it is on the creepypasta wiki, and it is certainly creepy.

I don't think you can call Ted the Caver creepypasta because there's no pasta involved, but it's a classic. It was my first or nearly first experience with online horror. I think it had different final pages at different points in time: in one of them, you'd see Ted's final message, click forward, and get this picture. The other ended in 404, which I think is scarier.

I got the 404 ending when I first read it. Story was in my head for months.

Yes! I have some bizarre memories from early childhood that I still can't place. Maybe they were dreams, maybe they were cartoons. Not too long ago I found this Sesame Street segment that had been in the back of my memory for years, and I was relieved to find out that it was real and just as unsettling as I remembered.

I also love creepypasta involving electronics or broadcast media. Ghostly figures and voices in caves don't usually resonate with me, but stories with haunted video games or incomprehensible TV broadcasts often do. They're close enough to real things, like numbers stations or the Pokemon MissingNo. glitch, that they hit fairly close to home. (When I was a kid I had a malfunctioning record player, and I was sure it was haunted.)

Is there a summary of all the things people noticed in the "I found a camera in the woods..."

Yeah all I saw was the silhouette of a person in one of them, the rest I can't see anything other than creepy foggy woods

My favorite geeky parts are when the creepypasta seep fanfic-style into other stories I know: like A Study in [DATA EXPUNGED], with SCP as a dark Sherlock romance*, or Come, scientist, destroy, in which Hannibal Lecter is an SCP employee and there is BAD WRONGNESS.

Mostly I love how creepy pasta will change how horror lit is written and consumed, as our brains are all infected by creepypasta and we write to infect each other in turn. To start with, I'm crossing my fingers for a third John Dies at the End book that involves Slendy developing a taste for John's spinal fluid or something. After reality-warping sentient meth and soul-eating brain spiders, evil glitchy videogames can't be far behind...

There's a silhouette in one, some creepy eyes in 19 and then a reflected figure in 25. The bigger thing, though, I think, is the narrative, where the guy is exploring this stuff, followed by the silhouettes and eyes, gets to the top of the tower (where the reflected figure is) then starts to run. The last picture is the camera lying on the ground. I don't think its a "spot the creepy thing in each picture" exercise.

After sleeping for the longest I've slept in months (7 hours) and waking up with some gnarly back pain some extra details have emerged from my Dell story, which happened about 7-8 years ago.

The outsourced service company was called "DecisionOne." Dell works with other companies too, but we always got the "DecisionOne" tech UNTIL this event. We always got the same guy -- a soft spoken Eastern European who spoke a Slavic language on the phone but I wasn't about to ask him what his nationality was, mainly out of respect. Never say "Are you Russian?" to someone who might be Ukrainian, Czech, Lithuanian, etc. And don't say "Ahh you have such a lovely accent, where are you from?" Just let them tell you if you deserve to know, if you know them well enough. First generation Slavic immigrants from former Eastern Bloc countries are inherently "nothing special," they aren't magical spies with neck-snapping Dolph Lundgren powers, but a certain seemingly larger than usual proportion of them will never fail to blow your mind with stories that they've come to accept as mundane aspects of Eastern Bloc life. Their history of repression and fear is far more recent than we can really understand. So many of them actually are pretty damned special.

This guy was super soft-spoken and friendly. The few words we've exchanged over several visits amounted to:

Him: "Why call me for help when you know how to replace motherboards and such? You are IT guy, no?"

Me: "As long as my manager keeps approving full on-site coverage, I'm going to let you do the work. I know you get paid to do it, and I know that I have plenty of other things to do, in the software world, and quite honestly I hate replacing motherboards."

Him: "Thank you for that."

Next conversation:

Me: "So, how competitive is it driving around for Dell?" (Particularly disgruntled, 25 years old,fantasizing about driving around stoned in a van replacing motherboards for just enough money to get by and not be "stressin'")

Him: "Very competitive. It's not fair at all. They don't pay us enough. We have to keep certain parts out of our own pockets to be competitive. Sometimes Dell calls two companies and whoever gets there first wins. There are disputes. It is barely worth the trouble. I am only doing it temporarily until I find something better."

Anyway, this is the guy who took the 8 motherboards. He'd been out at least 4 times previously and this was the last time I ever saw him. No big deal, but then some other details emerged, some from previous memories that suddenly seemed relevant back then, and others that seem relevant right now:

1. I took a camera shot of the "STOP." error from my phone. It was totally bewildering, just a normal "text mode" screen like you see in a typical blue screen of death, with "STOP." in the extreme upper left corner. The period creeped me out more than any absence of error codes. The photo looked fine when I previewed it immediately after the pic but the next day it was completely washed out. There are some mundane explanations for that so I just sort of kicked myself.

2. The person who experienced the rebooting problem the most was also one of the few people in the company who liked using speakers. Most people stuck with headphones. But she was constantly buying new speakers. After awhile, any pair of speakers she bought would start picking up tons of static that would increasingly dominate anything you were listening to. It would get to a point where it almost sounded like humans talking, like they were picking up actual radio signals, which made sense, but it was like they were slowly tuning in to a cacophony of crap.

We chalked it up to Lookout Mountain, a nearby feature with shit-tons of radio antenna activity including the HDTV signal for most Denver channels. But why did the speakers work for awhile? It was like they were being broken in. An every time she picked up new ones, she was surprised that they worked, as if this hadn't been a repeating problem for months. She could not stop it with the speakers, and always had them cranked up so when she logged in you heard that stupid ass Windows XP sound from across the office and she had no desire to change any of that.

3. I never did much with this story until now. Now I think this was nascent "air gap bridging" technology and the computers were rebooting inappropriately instead of doing something else.

The images triggering the reboot were to be "tagged" somehow in a way that would identify any terminal accessing them by generating a flurry of activity using all communication methods available -- the internet, eventually BlueTooth, and even a hodge-podge combination of crude but highly boosted radio signals emerging from the computer's internals.

Somehow we managed to stumble on a "hot image" spontaneously. It was a scanned license record for medical professional with a state license on it, and nothing more. But I realized the computers weren't supposed to be rebooting, they were supposed to generate a powerful carrier signal that could be picked up by someone who was looking for troublemakers. The idea was that if you intercepted some intelligence and viewed its contents, your computer would make sure somebody knew using a variety of methods. I research the medical professional who was a partner and all we know about them is that they have a PO BOX. We don't know where they live, they don't attend Christmas Parties, and they don't talk to anyone unless you've worked at the company for 2 years. Every week they receive huge shipments of wine cases sent by "happy patients." Nobody dares open them.

It's funny, -all this internet stuff. Is it real, is it fake? It's good to know where the limits are, really. It's all meant for fun, though, right?

You get a good jolt, and you come back for more, each time feeling more comfortable with the knowledge that something is going to happen to you.

Believe me, I get it. I do.

Because the truth is we all need it. That moment of purity that elevates us out of the daily grind. I like walking through my house late at night, just to listen to it creak as it tries to settle into a firmer foundation.

Like when you move into a new home, and you're marveling at it's shining simplicity and welcome. But over time, things wear down, a shade flips up suddenly in another room, or the doors don't quite shut square anymore.

And in the morning, over coffee, it's just your place, you know? You still recognize it, make your payments, go off to work and so on.

But all those creaks and dents and ticking, clicking sounds do tend to wear on you after while. You don't know what they mean, so you start making up stories about them, and then start staying up with them. Night after night. Until you can speak whatever language it is they do. Such long conversations.

My family says that we shouldn't have bought this house. They never liked it, appreciated it enough. What I called homey charm, (or really, come on now, it's my home, right?), they found horrible and claustrophobic. My wife left, and my daughter stayed, for a few weeks more anyway.

"Dadda, are you going to sleep ever?" She'd say to me, eyes wide and so curious!

But then, like now, I told her to keep quiet and still, so quiet. Because an adult is talking. And there's still so much more I have to tell them.

More extra weird bits from today:

I woke up at 10:17AM with no wife and kids in the house. They're on Christmas Break one more day and without fail are always home. I haven't texted my wife yet, just went to work.

My computer at work was "on" but frozen. I had to hold the power button down. When I turned it back on, my monitor went through all sorts of "power saving / no signal" gyrations, over and over again and finally came up. Weird.

The guy in my office said he's been having "internet problems" that nobody else is having. By "in my office" I mean "in my 2 person office" in a larger office of 150+ people.

My Android phone has started acting like a Windows XP machine with malware, literally giving me popups like "You have malware" and "A program is trying to do something unauthorized to your phone." I installed some AV and naturally it's found nothing. OK, that actually started about a week ago after a minor JellyBean update from AT&T.

At Starbucks some guy two people ahead of me was going on and on about some stupid arcane gift card coupon shit that he was entitled to. I couldn't really understand what he was on about, it just seemed like he wanted to tie up the cashier for a few minutes.
Everyone in line was like "?" and cashier just gave him whatever he asked for "this one time" to shut him up.

He had a trenchcoat (so what, right) and eventually left after chatting up the barista who had just been acting as his cashier and getting a bunch of apologies for something nobody else understood. I got my plain coffee and went to add creamer and had to ask some burly 40 year old lookin' Dolph Lundgren dude who also had a trenchcoat and a Home-Alone-Harry skull cap "excuse me" because he was standing there in front of the creamer, hovering around with a mixture of "just standing in the way by accident" and "standing there thinking about something intently." He had black skeleton gloves, LOL. I used up the last bit of creamer and then had it replaced. He waited for me and added some to his fru-fru drink.

I'm feeling a little weird...haven't finished the coffee yet but I'm the kind of guy who will, because it'd be crazy to think otherwise.

But I'm sure whatever it was, I'll have plenty of time to think it when I'm still wide awake at 4am, listening to every crackle, thud and bump in the heating system and wondering which of them aren't just metal expanding.


That's been dominating me for a week but kicked into high gear last night, I tell you what. Then it culminated in my son being awake at 1:30AM for no reason. I asked him if he wanted me to lay in bed with him and he said "no." I asked him why he was awake and he said "I want you to lay next to me." OK...I put my computer away and he was asleep in a minute when I came back, but I certainly did sleep there with him.

I stay up late quite a bit and usually think nothing of that creaky house stuff, then I push myself too hard and things get weirder and weirder and if I go too far I'll start hearing my name, meaning "You are now experiencing a form of acute psychosis, go sleep now."

My new house has plenty of features that make it easy for me to "see" moving figures coming up the stairs, etc. Somehow I understand how this works with the way the human brain assembles perception like the "dog behind the fence" experiment but it's hard to explain.

Afraid not, Pope Guilty, but thanks for the suggestion. It wasn't anywhere near as "clean" as Eversion (which sounds kinda fun), it was gritty and grainy, like an old cartridge game that still ran but was full of dust and cat wee. It was dead basic and your jumping guy (it was a human) couldn't do anything special except move left and right and, yeah, jump, and it was quite short, and I believe ran in your browser (though I may be mistaken).

I clicked it and then closed it after the first blink. I don't know what I was thinking; I rarely suffer (and "suffer" is the word for it, all right) from sleep paralysis these days, but one of the few reliable triggers for me is reading about sleep paralysis. (No, I don't have a clue why, and I don't think that thinking carefully about sleep paralysis is a great idea for me, either.) I can't even imagine what watching a simulation might do to me.

I never experienced sleep paralysis until I tried to dream lucidly.

See, the way that you apparently get to have lucid dreams is by realizing during the dream that you're dreaming. This is accomplished by what's called "reality checking"- you establish a habit of occasionally checking to see if you're dreaming, and eventually you start to do it in your dreams. Once you successfully reality check in your dream and realize you're dreaming, bam, you're lucid.

Or so the theory goes.

I got into the habit of reality checking and after a week or so finally had it happen during a dream. "Wait!" I said. "I'm dreaming! This is a dream!" But instead of the lucid freedom that lucid dreamers promise, instead the world drained away and I fell into a dark place. I became intensely aware of my body but could not move- could not open my eyes or breathe or act. As I slowly began to suffocate in the darkness my mind raced and I struggled for breath, and after several seconds bolted awake, flailing my limbs and taking huge, gulping breaths.

I stopped reality checking immediately, but it happened three more times within a week before it finally ended. I never attempted to dream lucidly again. It's one of the most traumatic things I've ever been through.
