Creepypastas or basically horror stories on the internet, there are a bunch of websites about them and they are fairly common.

My favourites would probably be Jeff The Killer (OMG so MAINSTREAM) because it has a nice story and you actually feel really bad for the guy, also any that has some twist at the end like My Fear of Water is an instant 5/5 for me

The only one I've read was The Russian Sleep Experiment. It was pretty good in that "this is fucking disgusting" kind of way.

I've always liked them in theory, but never enough to really read many of them. I just assumed 99.9% would be total shit and didn't know how to find the good ones, so I basically gave up before I started. However, I just read "My Fear of Water" and thought it was pretty good. Nice and subtle, but still unnerving. I'll definitely be reading "Jeff the Killer" next!

Not really adding anything to your thread I guess... Haha. Thanks for the suggestions though!

that Majora's Mask one was creepy as fuck, and really well done.

I could go for some pasta right about now.

Candle Cove. Let's face it: even the best creepypastas tend to be clearly amateur works, and Candle Cove skirts that limitation with the "forum post" format, while simultaneously making it more believable. Mainly I like it because I really enjoy the concept of inexplicable and disturbing broadcasts, and I feel like it's almost never done well.

Just Google creepy pasta. There are a bunch of websites dedicated to collecting them.

My favourite has to the be this odd Pokemon rom hack story. Even if it isn't true, the fact that someone could pervert the idea of that universe so well always sends a shiver up my spine.

#15 Posted by habster3 (3595 posts) -

Not really a creepypasta, but I feel like posting this here.

Ryan sat at his desk in the little Sausalito offices. The glow of the monitor illuminated his face as he searched the internet for the latest in sports drink technology. He wasn’t particularly excited at the moment just content to be working at a place with good people and good friends. He yawned gently as he struggled to find anything interesting.


Jeff sat next to him in his Herman Miller Aeron Chair. He thought it was comfortable but was really happy with the clean design. At this moment a sudden pang of hunger struck him. He looked around the room.


“We really need a refrigerator down here, yo!” he said in his half mocking, half revering tone. “I’m like starving, dawg!”


“Do you want to just order some pizza or something?” Ryan asked knowing what the answer would be.


“Nah, man we had pizza yesterday. What about that In & Out Burger? You know they got some tasty burgers.”


“Yeah… but I’m not really in the mood for burgers either.”


“Geez, I’m just starving though!” Jeff blurted.


Ryan stared at Jeff. He didn’t know how to sate his friend’s hunger. They’d have these discussions every day and his friend’s picky eating habits were starting to get on his nerves. He decided that he would have to do something a little more forward in order to get the situation under control.


He took a deep breath and closed his eyes. The dark was soothing and seemingly cooled his warm body. In a calm voice he spoke clearly, “Jeff, if you want something to eat. Eat me.”


“Ha! Dude, no seriously, I’m hungry!” Jeff responded.


With his eyes still closed and breathing slowly Ryan raised his voice slightly, “Jeff I don’t want to hear you talking about food anymore. Just eat me. Just fucking eat me.” He drew a large serrated knife from his desk drawer. The long leather wrapped handle was heavy but the balance of the knife was perfectly centered on its hilt.


“Dude! What are you do…”


Before Jeff could finish Ryan plunged the knife with both hands into his abdomen. The sound was dull and moist. Ryan could hear this sickening thud even before he felt the pain. It shot from the wound towards his back and then into his neck. It was excruciating. Warm blood poured down his shirt and dribbled onto the floor. He struggled with the knife to open the wound.


Jeff was stunned. His eyes were impossibly wide and he was listening to the blood pour out of Ryan’s abdomen.


With the knife firmly in his belly he moved both his hands into a palm upward grasp and started sawing the teeth of the blade into his flesh. It was not a smooth motion. The ragged knife cut and tore his fat and the blood was freely flowing onto his hands and pooling onto the carpet.


As Ryan opened the wound up Jeff watched as the yellowish glistening pieces of fat fell to the floor. The rapid pulling thrusts of the knife in flesh sounded like someone was slowly beating an egg. The smell of exposed fat was like that of a freshly opened jar of mayonnaise. When Ryan had torn through about half a foot of his own body he let go of the knife and left it sticking in the bottom of the open wound.


At this point the odor hit Jeff and he realized that Ryan had been screaming. It was a low bellowing noise interrupted with gurgling gasps and brief cries.


Ryan then grasped the edges of his exposed innards and dug his fingers into the subcutaneous fat. He started to pull himself open. His own flesh was warm and slick so he had to bury his hands deeper to get a better hold.


As Ryan tore frantically tore into his own body Jeff could now see the red ragged fibers of muscle as Ryan’s fingers ripped into them. They twitched in concert with Ryans screams and sickened him.


He had opened a hole in his belly enough to expose his abdominal muscles and the fascia intertwined in them. His fingers couldn’t pierce through this barrier though. He pulled the knife that was already buried above his groin and started to saw through the muscle. Because of the large serrations of the knife he had to tug violently to rip through the fascia.


Jeff watched in silence, not realizing that he had held his breath throughout the entire ordeal. Then an even more horrifying vision befell him. Ryan had stopped making human screaming noises and was now just grunting between frantic knife jabs but through the blood and torn flesh Jeff could clearly see loops of bowel starting protrude out of his friend.


Ryan fell to his knees and the sudden impact caused his intestines to pour through the wound. He hadn’t stopped tearing with the knife and pierced through the walls of his small bowel. The spasms of his intestines caused fluid stool to mix with the blood pouring out of Ryan and it smelled like a freshly butchered deer.


The smell was so strong that Jeff’s stomach cramped and he too fell to the floor in front of his eviscerated friend.


At this Ryan whimpered in weakened, breathless gasps but not stopping his disembowelment, “Fucking eat me, dude. Eat that shit.”


Jeff, dazed with horror, grabbed one of Ryan’s torn bowel loops. It convulsed to his touch and was slippery to hold. As he held Ryan’s intestines he could feel the powerful contractions go from one side of his hand to another. He was shocked at this and almost dropped it. The mix of fecal fluids and blood ran down his arms in pulpy threads.


Ryan stared at Jeff. The only noise coming from Ryan’s mouth now was of an impossibly long and low gutteral exhalation.


Jeff tugged on Ryan’s bowels in order to further free them.

Ravioli is probably the creepiest pasta.

#17 Posted by Shrimpy (96 posts) -

Most Creepy Pasta I just find to stupid, especially the ones involving video games which... KILL!

The SCP Foundation is a really good site though as they actually reject stories, meaning there's a level of quality to everything for the most part. There are a few stories that have genuinely got to me on that site.

#18 Posted by golguin (3929 posts) -

I like the Majora's Mask and the Pokemon Black one. I've also had a real ghost experience as did my mom, dad, and sister. My sister's event was the most recent (almost two years ago now) where she had two different ghosts appear at our house for about two weeks. My mom actually saw one enter her room during the day out of the corner of her eye (a shadowy figure) and she only admitted that fact a few days ago. When the haunting was going on she kept telling my sister is was just her imagination or it was because she had just watched a scary movie. My sister was 21 years old at the time.

My own story isn't that dramatic, but my friend experienced it at the same time so it's proof that we weren't crazy. I might talk about that later.

Candle Cove was the first and probably last creepypasta to stop me getting to sleep at night, I was new to pastas and thought it was a real thing

Read the IMBD for A Serbian Film, that was probably the most fucked up thing I have ever experienced.

Edit: I recommend everyone looks at it just to realize how sheltered we are.

God, i hate that movie. I fucking hate this movie, it's so... DUMB. I'm a fan of gore, one of my favorite short stories is about girls doing Hara-Kiri because it will make them popular, but that movie was so devoid of charm and so focused on shocking the audience that it just became a pretty fucking shallow movie.

#23 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6299 posts) -

There's a series of stories that was submitted to Reddit's nosleep section a while back. It started out as just a two-parter, but due to the demand of the commenters and the site's community, it blew up into a full blown series that was eventually sold altogether as a paperback/ebook. The first installment can be found here I highly recommend it although it is a bit of a read. Once it gets its hooks into you, though, you won't wanna stop.

#28 Edited by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

Candle Cove was a good one. I liked that one. I read My Fear of Water and thought it was pretty good, nice little twist at the end even if it isn't totally jaw-dropping. Jeff The Killer was real bad, felt like I was reading a short story written by a 7th grader. Pictures that go along with it are nice and creepy, though.

#29 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1247 posts) -

I really like a lot of the pokemon ones. The one about Lavender town syndrome, the one about the hacked pokemon Gold cart (I forget the title). Majora's Mask is pretty good. Youtuber Blametruth had an ARG about pokemon and it effecting his life, it was pretty good.

#31 Posted by Sursh (243 posts) -

the wiki's community has become just aweful. most of the content on there is embarrassing to read.

but with that said, a few stories that i found enjoyable were 'normal porn for normal people' (funny shit) and 'russian sleep experiment'.

This. It is really well done and it is really unsettling.

I also like Squwidward's Suicide. Not really that realistic but at the same time I could see something similar to that, but not as horrific, happening.

I just tried to read Jeff the Killer.

How many young boys do you know use words like illuminating and ominous?

I'm not sure if it was part of creepypasta or wot, but there was this creepy enough short story with a kid having a nightmare and waking up her dad to tell about it, with the story ending, that the monster in the dream was wearing the skin of her mother, with her sleeping next to the dad at that moment...worked fine enough during late-hours, even if it wasn't exceptional piece of writing.

Could dive into some creepypasta properly in the near future, if I remember. I don't read enough horror stories as it is. Could also re-read His Face All Red...http://emcarroll.com/comics/faceallred/01.html

#40 Posted by Ghostiet (5281 posts) -

Ben/Majora's Mask. Mostly because I don't find it creepy at all, but my friend is absolutely terrified of that shit.

#42 Posted by Tearhead (2168 posts) -

I'm assuming most of you who find this stuff scary read them as kids, 'cus I'm reading it now for the first time and think all of this is pretty juvenile, both in premise and writing (especially Jeff the Killer). Not judging though, 'cus I remember being scared shitless of some stupid stuff when I was a kid. Certain Goosebumps novels come to mind.
