Best CreepyPastas Ever

To people who don't know what a CreepyPasta is, let me explain. A CreepyPasta is a short story that is posted on the internet that is designed to unnerve and shock the reader. I looked high and low for the best of the best, and here they are. Let's begin.

The Top TenXW

1Jeff the Killer

Jeff the Killer was the first creepypasta I'd ever read, and boy was that a mistake for the first time. When I read it my mom and brother were at the park, I am almost never home alone so I took this as a chance to read something scary. Well I didn't mean horrifying, when I first read it I stood there and thought this isn't scary and then turned to Jeff Returns, that's where I started to get freaked out. I imediatly shut off the computer and ran into my bed room (taking my three dogs, two of which were very large and guard dogs) Then I turned on childrens T.V. and read some romance novel, anything to get my mind off of it. Because the more you think of it, the more it haunts you.

By far the best creepypasta I've read, the picture is pretty creepy as well... GO TO SLEEP

Jeff is the best! His story almost made me poop my pants! The picture traumatized me! I haven't been able to sleep for more than 3 months! I'm always afraid that he's in a dark area waiting for me... He's in my nightmares. I even think I've seen him once! He cut a scar into my arm that made me pass out! He must have thought I died from it! He's tots the best!

I find that this is complete bull seeing how jeff isn't real no creepypastas are real they are all fakes now I feel you should turn off your device before you spit out even more bull nobody believes he is real so just stop

Best pasta ever

2BEN Drowned

BEN is a figure who takes on the form of the Elegy of Emptiness statue of Link's human form in the title: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The writer is terrified by this entity because it seemingly haunts the game cartridge in a way that makes the victim of this pasta feel alone, hopeless and trapped. The reason this creepypasta belongs near the top is because it is a good read, it is very believable (contains videos), it is quite lengthy, and it goes into great detail with the characters, settings and events, allowing you to paint a vivid picture in your head. I highly recommend reading this one.

The first creepypasta I ever read, and might I say the best. This thing creeped me out for a long time due to the fact I am a big legend of zelda fan. Because of that fact (and the fact I had recently beat Majora's Mask when I read this thing) it scared me even more to know it could be haunted. It is also one of the most realistic ones I've seen. In my opinion it should be the top. All thanks to Mr. Alex Hall (aka Jadusable: aka the writer of this creepypasta)

A very long but amazing story with a whole bunch of videos. - booklover1

I don't read creepypastas, but when I do, BEN Drowned is my first read. - SwagFlicks

3Slender Man

The ongoing series by the Marble Hornets creates an atmosphere of a documentary, making it seemingly more believable than many other creepypasta's I've seen. With well done filmwork, and a very interesting, mysterious, and unnerving story, this will leave you looking out the window, fearing something is watching you, overall, making me like Slender Man the best.

Really love this story, got me into creepypasta and is more believable than others

Really?! Jeff the killer is one of the few CreepyPastas that follow real life physics. Slenderman is not one of them.

Is the best creepypasta in my opinion, there are so many stories about it and seems to span over hundreds of years. Sure some of the things about it are fake, but I still believe it is one of the better ones out there, and is more believable than most.

Such a great story simply because of the lack of information... It really gives you the feel of absolute elusiveness which I have yet to find in any other story.

4The Russian Sleep Experiment

While reading The Russian Sleep Experiment I felt myself get physically unhealthy. I grew dizzier and my breathing seemed to grow difficult, possibly as and attempt to hold back vomiting. Repeatedly I said "Oh my god. " It's literally horrifying not only the gore described but for me more some of the things said through those undergoing the experiment. I don't know if I'd recommend reading it or never reading it but it's the best creepypasta.

Not the first creepypasta I've ever read and not the last, but certainly one of the best. The descriptions of the victims are wonderfully nauseating. This is certainly worth a read if you don't want to sleep at night (or should I say, DO want to sleep... )

I love this creepypasta. It's extremely descriptive and gross, but never bores the reader. It's not as scary as some others I've read, but it's the most disturbing (tied with 'Cupcakes. ')

Give it a read! It's worth your time

God, I remember listening to this on YouTube... so disturbing, disgusting, creepy.... The fact that it was real makes it just as bad.

5Squidward's Suicide

O. O Of all the mind-numbingly creepy material I have seen and read over the years, this creepypasta disturbed me the most. They describe the scenes in this story so well, putting brain-assaulting images in your head that are difficult to remove. One of them being the picture. And, having seen many episodes of Spongebob as a kid, all those memories of our good spongey friend and his aquaintences have been pooed all over. I will never look at Spongebob and Squidward especially the same way again, and after reading this creepypasta, neither will you.

This is the first one I've ever heard, and I never read a better one ever since. Scary, yet a good quality read. - booklover1

The photo was creepy and the story was even more creepy

Stupid plot, most stupid reason to commit suicide (this should have been named emo squidward.

6Eyeless Jack

I LOVE Eyeless Jack :P I think he needs to be in the top ten :) I don't know why but I just love Creepypasta and all of these stories... You can thank my friend for getting me obsessed in these stories! Anyways, I really want this story to win but my choice came down to Slenderman, The Rake, and Eyeless Jack :) All of them need to be in the top ten!

Eyeless jack is just AMAZING he can be just as good as all of the other Creepypastas if the writer didn't do such a bad job... He's my personal favorite and all of my friends favorites! We all had a fight over who got to be eyeless jack for halloween! And we ate kidney beans in tribute to him (laugh out loud it was gross)

He's just so awesome and he needs more credit for that! Even if the writer didn't give much detail, you can let your mind roam and make it up yourself, use your imagination and you can make it (whatever you think is best) just use your imagination... And he's just so huggable I mean seriously!

This is the One of a lot creepypasta I love.

7The Rake

I couldn't sleep for nights after reading this. I just kept looking at the end of my bed the hell out.

WHY IS THIS NOT NUMBER ONE? Hell I'm scarred... I mean they have proof... Video proof... News prove... That's just insane..

I was scared to death, especially the pictures.
I am hoping The Rake isn't real!
We were surely going to have insomnia for the next 2 weeks.

This needs to be at least number 3 - username34

9Abandoned by Disney

Pretty creepy. Not going to lie though, I liked it better up until the very end when they went overkill on the blood.

Oh so scary at first then it wasn't scarry, " "Hey, " it said in a hushed, perverted, but perfectly executed Mickey Mouse voice, "Wanna see my head come off? "

It started to pull at its own head, working its clumsy, glove-clad fingers around its neck with clawing, impatient movements similar to a wounded man trying to pull himself free of a predator's jaws...

As it worked its digits into its neck... So much blood...

So much thick, chunky, yellow blood... " THAT was my favorite part when I first read it.

The feeling of foreboding left me unprepared for the ending. A recommended read for anyone who wants to read quintessential creepy pasta.

I love this. I'm also a Disney fan (who isn't? ) and reading this made me want to see it in person. I won't lie- "Wanna see my head come off? " gave me the chills a little bit.

The Contenders


Personly my fave creepypasta scary yet awesome I scared someone loads with this story easily should be in top ten

Smile. Dog is a chain email/picture that is over the net. The description of the picture is said to be a dog, possibly a husky, with a human-like grin. In the background is a hand described as "beckoning", with a shadowy figure in the corner. It has been said that this figure is the notorious Jeff the Killer, though that still is unknown. Anyone who receives the picture will be plagued with nightmares telling them to "spread the word". Essentially, you have to pass the picture on to someone else for the dreams to stop. Whether you send it as soon as you get it, or keep it locked up inside you, the dreams can drive you crazy. The question for you is, could you bring this on someone else? Could you really do that to someone? Could you spread the word?

Very creepy picture and creepy story it deserves to be here.

This is the same thing as smile dog - username34

This one is one of the most famous and pretty creepy as well. There are tons of parodies as well. - booklover1

Wow, I don't know if the one I saw was a parody or not, but it scared me to death! Don't even try to imagine waking up in the middle of the night and having that bloody mickey head staring at you right in the face! I MUST SHOW ALL MY

I think this should be in the top ten. I've seen YouTubers play a game called 'Suicide Mouse' and that made me fall in love with this story. It's creepy, and the fact that there's a video makes me even more in love with it. I'm actually scared to watch the video on YouTube because of what the story said happened after that guy saw it.

Don't even try playing version 3. - DubstepLover

What makes this creepypasta so good is not that it's scary, but just so convincing and creates a sense that this story may have happened. It really dives into the realms of disturbing and the sick, demented mind of a pedophile that creates a local channel for little kids, just so he can lure them into his house, torture them, and sacrifice them. There are a plot holes, especially when the parents of these kids that are lured into the house don't even bother that their kids are missing. But it's a well-written story with great suspense and goes into the mind of a kid watching the show, almost being lured into the house, and how his childhood was much darker than he remembered it years later.

This is brilliantly written, disturbing, and above all else, realistic. Not to mention fairly unpredictable. Honestly makes me feel lucky nothing like this has ever happened to me.

Run. Exe for story, BEN Drowned for style, and Marble Hornets (Original Slender) for presentation as Honorable Mentions.

It's brilliant. Jeff is rubbish compared to it. Happy Apply copied this in a stupider way. It's a must read - the first one I ever read and the best. It's really convincing. Not for the faint hearted... Just remember. Never watch Channel 21.

This could actually happen, unlike lots of the other creepypastas - username34

14Lavender Town Syndrome

Lavender town maybe a littlebit creepy like the ghost and others but the worst part is the song. They say it cause suicides. CREEPY! And this song has been stuck in my head for days until it stops every time I listen to it it will never get out of my head until I ethier wait until its gone or listen to some other music or watch some T.V. to get it out of my mind. Oh yea one more thing I know this is not a real creepypasta but its called creepypastaphoebia. Its where if you read a certain creepypasta you will be scared. The common ones are you can't sleep, nightmares, look everywhere, and other ones. Some are exclusive like for an example say if you read a squidwards suicide creepypasta and if you look at the photo and you ethier can't look at squidward or if you see a toy of him you use something to destroy it. And that's why I like the pokemon lavender town creepypasta.

Lavender Town is a true Creepypasta about a song in a Pokemon game. The creators of the ghost-like town wished to make the music creepier and different for said area. Little did they know that it contained low tones. Because children's/teenager's ears are less-developed than adult's, they can hear them. It took a while for people to realize, unfortunately. Realize the connection between player's suicide when they reached that part of the game, if they wore headphones or ear buds. Not every child killed themselves, though. Some developed mental health problems. As in Schizophrenia, or similar. When the connection was made, they called all the games back in and changed the music. Yet copies are all over the internet or YouTube. If you are stupid enough to listen, then try Missing Frequencies. This is an edited version, and is 10 times worse. As the song progresses, they add different layers. This is known to cause headaches within 10 seconds, so be very careful.

It is the most creepy one. Really!

I love the song!

15Normal Porn for Normal People

Incredibly creepy and underrated... The thought of a psychotic killer posting porn to the internet sends chills up my spine. Also incredibly convincing.

This story is very interesting, convincing and well thought out. It was also a good combination of bizarre and unsettling, and the author did a good job at making it believable; I usually think of things featured in creepypastas as being a pile of nonsense, but I actually thought the videos were real.

Very underrated... Bizarre and creepy as hell. Deserves to be in the top 10 for sure.

Not scary, but disturbing. All the gore and cutting you read makes you unconfortable. I've read it many times and I don't think it's scary, I love it! Love the way that a cute happy pony can be so mad and sadistic, in my opinion it suits Pinkie Pie. But that's just me, I love twisted things, good become evil.

When I first meeted CUPCAKES it freaked me out... But when I saw it again and again now in my opinion is not creepy is good it maybe creep you out but not to me...

WHY THE HELL IS THIS NOT NUMBER! I feel sick and I can safely say I will never look at pinkie Pie in the same way. It's not scary but it is creepy and if you like gore this is your pasta!

Very good story, Its not creepy but all the gore makes me feel happy. Call me sick and twisted but I liked it for the murder - meadow_rose

17Candle Cove

I read this before I realized that it was fictional creepypasta. When you read of it that way everything just gets loads more creepy. Oh, and when accompanied by that candle cove video on youtube? Made it even more awesome.

It's really interesting. You can tell from the beginning that it's really odd. Then as you progress, ot just gets creepier and creepier. The last line sent chills up my spine and left me in a confused state.

When you look back at shows you watched as a child, you have to admit some of the stuff you watched was just plain weird. Candle Cove is a tale of a nostalgia trip that takes an unexpected supernatural turn. Adding to its creepy factor, Candle Cove is written in a believable, yet creative format.

The ending really makes this.

This introduces a chill to the reader without the traditional gore and jump scares, while also keeping the story compelling and completely disturbing. Honestly, most creepypastas don't actually scare me, they just disturb me a bit. But Penpal... Well, let's just say that Penpal gave me a dose of paranoia and maybe a bit of insomnia. If you like reading stories that make you check under your bed and jump at every noise that you don't immediately know the location of, I highly suggest this creepypasta.

Penpal is something I would be proud to call a creepypasta. It's something that can happen to any of us and it just seems so... Realistic. It's long but if any thing's ever been worth the read, its this. I've read Jeff the killer, slenderman, squid wards suicide, BEN drowned... And nothing has given me the creeps like this story did. The only thing I've ever enjoyed as much as that was the books of sand if I remember correctly.

Worth the read ten times over. If you prefer books to screentime, order the book by Dathan Auerbach (1000Vultures) off Amazon instead.

Thrilling the reader with its uniquely original storyline, Penpal repeatedly compels you to read more and more as you become infatuated with the narrator's story. To this day, I'm frightened of waking up in a place other than my own bed.

Penpal is, without a doubt, the absolute best Creepypasta I have ever had the pleasure to read.

In terms of creepypasta's it is a masterpiece introducing the reader to a very frightening villain that doesn't stick to the traditional role of a ruthless psychopath killer but instead a disturbed silent figure slowly pulling the strings as if treating it as chess a very long sadistic patient game of chess

19Lost Silver

An amazing creepypasta about the inevadibility of death. It truly raises questions, not to mention has several alternate endings.

I love this story so much! It deserves to be first on tip ten. It is creepy, exciting and when it ends it leaves thoughts and questions bouncing around in your head.

Amazing story. It really scared me to wet my pants. It had a lot of excitment to it. What scared me was the unknowns spelling and lost silver's limps coming off

I don't get this one it confuses me

20The Tunnel

It's a little cheesy, but it's pretty scary, especially what happens during and after the encounter of the tunnel. - booklover1

Holy crap, that was surprisingly good...

I read it, and I didn't want to go into any more abandoned tunnels. - username34
