One thing I enjoy doing around Halloween is reading scary stories and watching creepy videos. Just recently I’ve taken to Facebook to find the creepiest content on the web, and haven’t been disappointed.
Whatever your definition of scary or creepy is, you’re going to want to view these Facebook pages, as I’ve found that they usually find the creepiest content on the web.
Check out Creepypasta
With over a million likes, Creepypasta [No longer available] isn’t obscure. Plenty of people are engaged with Creepypasta every day, as they regularly update their page with creepy pictures, stories, and videos. People seem to love their content.
If you speak Spanish you can check out the Spanish Creepypastas page, which is a little more popular than the English version.
Don’t take my word for it, check out their posts for a good fright!
If you like their posts, and the equally creepy and sometimes funny Facebook comments, then like them and see what they’re all about. I’m sure they’ll update their page with even more creepy content.
Scary Content on CREEPYism
CREEPYism is another Facebook page that is sure to freak you out. The site has over 150,000 subscribers and a separate group of 11,000 members that you might be able to join and will certainly want to see.
The page is similar to Creepypasta in that it has a plethora of videos, photos, and posts on everything creepy and scary. I found that they occasionally post real-life horror stories, which is the creepiest kind of spooky. Just look at this mask and tell me you don’t find that horrifying.
Read Scary Stories and Urban Legends
Much different than CREEPYism and Creepypasta is the Facebook page Scary Stories and Urban Legends. The site owner shares scary facts, myths, and stories from users on the web, which can be downright spooky.
Most of the stories are short and easy to read, others are a bit long and really dial up the suspense. One of my favorite stories is titled “My Grandfather’s Mirror” by Joshua Flowers. Be sure to read it, but be prepared to be creeped out!
Don’t Pass on Pennywise The Clown
You might remember the 1990 movie It, based on the book of the same name by Stephen King. In the movie, there’s a character named Pennywise the Dancing Clown that still gives nightmares to children and adults to this very day.
To captivate on this fear, a Pennywise the Clown Facebook page has been created that promises to scare and entertain you. The page regularly posts scary content, with special attention given towards Pennywise and other scary clowns. So, if clowns aren’t your thing, or maybe if they are, be sure to view their page and give them a like.
Listverse is an entertaining website with over 100,000 likes. Their site listverse.com focuses on many different topics, including politics, science, history, and strange lists.
When the site was first founded, it focused almost entirely on strange and creepy lists. It quickly attracted a large following, including myself, and gained a reputation for publishing lists that truly made you think. Check out their creepy archive on their site, and give their Facebook page a like for more content.
Head on Over to Horror Society
If you want to follow-up on independent horror film, art, music, and performance, you should check out Horror Society’s Facebook page. They support independent artists and projects, share content, and help to create a community within the horror world. They also have a radio podcast which features actors, directors, and artists. You can have a listen to their podcast anytime, which includes over 200 episodes.
Scotland is a beautiful country, with many natural and urban areas that are sure to inspire. Scotland can also be a scary country, with many “forgotten, abandoned, and rarely seen places.”
The Abandoned Scotland Facebook page features these freaky places through documented video and photos, which are meant to inspire people to explore the country. The page strictly tells would-be explorers to enter abandoned places with extreme caution, as the sites can be dangerous and terrifying. You can view their website for some more creepy content.
I especially enjoyed when they documented an underground train station in Glasgow. In the video, you can see a forgotten station which has been overwhelmed by the elements. If this doesn’t give you the chills and make you want to explore, then you should probably check out the next item on the list.
The Facebook page Urbex [No longer available] might not seem strange at first, but just like Abandoned Scotland, the page explores forgotten areas – there’s just something creepy about abandoned places. The page has around 35,000 likes and features photos and videos from abandoned places in the United States.
One of the most entertaining videos is when they explored the forgotten town of Spectre, which was used in the film Big Fish. While the film has nothing do with creepy and horror, the town itself can be seen as eerie, as it remains deserted and completely forgotten.
This Facebook page focuses on everything ghosts. They regularly post stories, pictures, and videos of ghost sightings, and seem to find the most obscure stories from around the web. So, if you get creeped out easily, you may or may not want to scare yourself and head on over to their page.
Oh, and if you really think you have a ghost problem (and live in Virginia), be sure to use their services, as they deal with any problems related to paranormal activity.
Everything Creepy on Tumblr
Sometimes creepy doesn’t have to be scary, sometimes creepy can be, well, just creepy. And the Facebook page The Creepy Side of Tumblr [No longer available] seems to find everything weird on the web.
A lot of their content might make you scratch your head, and others might make you freak out. So, if you’re looking to be inundated with posts that make you question what you’re looking at, then this is the perfect group for you, because Halloween is just around the corner.
People Love to be Scared
If one thing is certain, people love to be creeped out. Whether it’s ghosts, zombies, clowns, or scary stories, people will find and seek out ways to scare themselves. If you happen to be one of these people, then I hope we’ve made you’re day.
