A single serve Tumblr of small self-contained horror stories in cartoon form. Some are animated, but all are wonderfully unnerving.

These are pretty fun, and the motion is more than just a gimmick.

I really like the illustration/art on these.

Oh and give the animations a little time - some of them develop slowly.

Somehow these are both delightful and actually creepy. Love it!

These are genius. Like a modern Addams. Thanks!

I was thinking like a modern Edward Gorey.

Wonderful. Obviously lovely to look at, but I also really enjoy the horrible ambiguity of many of the captions.

These are brilliant. Perfect marriage of the artwork and the captions.

I loved the working late/cubicle one. One night of the week I am the only one left on the basement floor of my cube farm...... "shiver"

Just read through the whole thing and loved it! It's amazing how even though the premise for every one is the same, theres so much creativity on display that it never seems to repeat. Some very freaky concepts and monsters in here! My favorite uses of animation are the car park and the magic lantern in the cemetery.

Yessss!!! I used to absolutely LOVE creepy pasta back in high school, but it's changed now-a-days. It's just lost that something that made me obsessed. But this hits that perfect sweet spot of creepy, ambiguous, and relatable.

The uncertainty of what exactly the threat is, or how it got there or why, just gives me the mega heeby jeebies, in a good way

Man, these are just the right kind of spooky!

This is my new favorite spooky thing.

A lot of these could easily be interpreted as "scary looking thing just really wants a friend"

note to self: don't hang out with FirstMateKate and her "friends"

These are very nice: clever, sometimes quiet and understated. The interzone between Chas Addams and Edward Gorey.

If you insist, JohnnyWallflower, but me n my friends always have a really good time hanging out. We even have a book club. Some of them are a bit messy, but I forgive them because they're there if you need them.
