The Top Ten

Being Buried Alive
I'm quite claustrophobic so being disabled from moving would be the most uncomfortable feeling for me.
Cause it's so difficult being buried alive, you will feel you are lonely inside, hopeless, nothing to eat, there's no one there, and the most of it you will become hopeless
Most things on the list are subjective in terms of order.
Being buried alive is a lot worse than being stranded in the middle of the ocean on a raft though.
At least you might have some supplies on the raft and at least you can hope for a shift or land to come your way.
When you are buried alive... I doubt you'd be ranking your chances of survival in very good odds...
[Newest]It will be most scary thing ever i

2Justin Bieber's Singing
HE can't sing he sound like this boy in my class named Shatanya. He always trying to get selena Gomez and I don't think she like him! I mean when is he gonna him puberty.
This should be number 1! My brain has a sezure when listening to the vile screaming.
Maybe he's a good guy in private - I don't want to pass judgment without ever having met him - but I really don't like his style or his voice or anything else when it comes to his public image.
[Newest]Good god I've been though several experiences where I listen to 0.000002 seconds of his song and my head nearly explodes

3Being Stranded in the Open Ocean
This is one of the most horrifying things I can imagine. It's slow and hopeless. You're in a life raft watching your supplies decline and waiting for someone to save you when each day your doubt increases that it will ever come. It's worse than instant death because you have time to think about all the people you never said goodbye to, and that is the most horrible thing I could wish on anyone.
you're pretty much screwed here. Should be higher. Like... number 2.
It would be so scary, not knowing whats beneath you while your resources slowly run out... And also, whoever put slenderman, according to the documentary he goes for those that fear him, so watch out
[Newest]And this is BELOW Justin Bieber's singing? This makes no sense!

"What you fear most of all, is fear itself" which is (according to Professor Lupin), very wise.


Proffered Lupin has a point. If fear is just an idea, then shouldn't we be scared of it? We can try to, maybe, just forget that fear even exists. But we can't because we're scared if what will happen or failure.
Well its... Scary OKAY!
[Newest]Global warming and lack of water killing us all.. Slowly. Cruelly.

You can't breathe the whole time and it's just... Freaky.
It is a vary dreadful situation vary scary to experience


Imagine just screaming the breathing in the water and dying
[Newest]It is my worst fear

6Lost In Space
What are you supposed to do? How are you gonna get back to your family and continue your life? There's no oxygen in space, nor is there water, food, or other people to talk to. There's many other dangers of space. For example, the sun's radiation, burning up due to friction, extreme cold, and space debris. This is one of the most frightening thoughts.


Why is this not higher? This is my all-time biggest fear. Right before the movie gravity came out, I was telling someone my biggest fear was to be floating in outer space knowing no one can help you. Then BAM the movie came, which I had no desire to see. Whew, it gives me goosebumps thinking about it.
Being lost in outer space is the most horrifing thing I can think of, should be higher on the list, maybe even at nÂș1, because there is nothing you can do in space, you KNOW you're dead when you get lost in space.
[Newest]What the hell will you do if you were lost in space?

hahaha its weird to see spiders and being buried alive the first 2, because the scariest things I have thought of is being buried alive with a dozen of the creepiest spiders on earth... anyway, I choose spiders because of my arachnophobia, stranded in an ocean is hella scary 2...
I live in the country and if I see a spider I will freak out if someone put it on me first I will scream bloody murderer then I will kill them
I have a deathly fear of spiders and after seeing Arachniphobia I was scared of them even more.

p. s. Death you can eventually cope with so its not such a big deal... Im not afraid of dying.


[Newest]I am so glad spiders are on this list!

8Plane Crashes
This is scary cause there's a chance you won't survive, a zombie apocalypse would be scary but it kinda sounds fun, if you have call of duty.


You know you have pretty much no chance of survival knowing you'll die that's scary
I would be scared of dieing
[Newest]It's terrifying. I am extremely scared of plane crashes.


Thank you! People laugh at me for being afraid of clowns when really they are terrifying! When I was really little, like six, my aunt made me watch It by Stephen King and ever since then I have been terrified. Even masks that have characteristics of clowns scare me to death!
I think we all agree that clowns do not need any explanation for being scary and should be first place in this list.
How can you guys not be scared of clowns! Watch "Stephen King's It" the whole story is about a stupid clown that kills kids!
[Newest]Clowns are the creepiest things always laughing and they always seem to be following you I have been afraid of clowns ever since I was a baby when a clown came over with a balloon and popped it on purpose and then there are the people that like clowns you should go watch Stephen Kings IT

Come on. This has to be number 1. It's endless torture and pain. What's worse than that?
Hell is endless torture, with no hope of redemption, only pain and suffering to look forward to for the rest of eternity.


If you think there is nothing Scariest then hell then you are not lucky person time is drawing near
[Newest]Wow. Justin Bieber's singing and clowns are apparently scarier than hell. That doesn't make any sense... Hell is a place where all your worst fears are

The Contenders

11The Unknown
The only reason we fear ghosts is because we don't know what they are. Same with UFOs.
Ambiguity is the one scariest thing. I know, in the back of my head, spiders will not hurt me. I'll still cry if I see one, but I know they're harmless deep down. No guarantees with the unknown, I guess that's why the idea of ghosts are so scary to me!


My biggest fear. Sometimes I can't even sleep because I always think there is one hiding in the closet!


[Newest]I think mermaids are real

Snakes are the greatest creature on this planet I have my own as pets, people who are scared or don't like snakes have either never held a snake or only ever seen bad things happen that have included a snake for example, snake biting person or eating a person or other creature
Yeah really one time I saw a big snake in my mades room I and plus it's made babies in there and I saw two small babies from her was so freaked out it was in my house because in front of my house I have a big forest and I saw the snakes it's just so big and I was so freaked out and plus she made more babies of a kind of her and I saw one baby she had I don't know if she made more than one baby that is so crazy!
I have 2 dogs and a snake and they are more cute than scary...
[Newest]Snakes are so cute, yet strangely scary!

This would really suck... if you're a horrible shot. Even then if your a bad shot how hard can a point blank shot to the head be? Still... this scenario would not be fun in the slightest.


How a zombie apocalypse isn't within the top five I don't know :-( come on people, even if you weren't eaten alive by one, the chances are you'd probably become one yourself. Just imagine it for one moment, being a mindless zombie, ripping people you once loved to shreds. Agh, it doesn't matter though I suppose; do you want to know why? ZOMBIES ARE NOT REAL! Don't get me wrong there still scary as he'll but there just not real.
Zombies are the scariest thing since zombies.
[Newest]I have a phobia of zombies

14Being stranded on an island with Justin Beiber
Yea I do not blame reason 1:he is a city person and not many city folks know how to survive in the wild 2: I would have to do every thing for him 3:he sings think about if he was singing and I saw a bear he would be so loud we would DIE!
This is most horrifying thing in the world, and I can't even sprll wrihte. Should definitely be #1 because he'll probably be practicing "singing" and he's bad enough when he's doing a concert.
I don't like him anymore. But being stranded on an island with him would be nice, you would love his company since you two are alone. I'm A BOY OKAY
[Newest]I'll have sex with him and find out if he's scared ti have a baby :D

15Nuclear Warfare/Fallout
Creepy zombies,aliens and (2 headed?!) fusion people and animals EVERYWHERE!


16Camping Out In the Woods After Hearing About Slenderman.
This will scare you, I guarantee it. Especially if you are a young child. Without torches. And no adult to look after you. Imagine waking up outside, lost because you we're sleepwalking at night. Slender could have got you...dun dun dun
I was gonna go with Justin but this is way scarier considering that you can't do anything about it. Whereas you can just pummel that idiot of a singer
The worst thing is that the title didn't say Camping Out In The Woods With Your Friends After Hearing About Slenderman, so it means you're camping alone. Even scarier.
[Newest]Now I am scared because in a week I am going camping...

17Burning Alive
anyone who votes for anything else doesn't know anything about pain.
How is this under grizzly bears? They're not worse than this!
It would be really painful to be burned alive
[Newest]You'd be in horrible agony, you wouldn't be able to breathe, your body might not be recovered, and YOU'LL SMELL YOUR OWN FLESH BURNING. What's scarier than that?!

I can't watch creepypasta! I know I never seen it but I heard of it, there's masky, jeff the killer, the rake, ITS SCARY! BUT I don't KNOW IF THEIR REAL! They aren't but there are killers and it just reminds you of it! Plus, I'm not old enough to watch it... I'm PRETTY GLAD! Creepypasta... Creepypasta... Imagine if this were real ( but now its a happy story ) - jeff comes in breaks door - ( good thing I chose lockdown! ) - I hide underneath couch while seeing him punched and hit by mouse traps that I set up! - ( hee hee I'm also a better fighter. ) - when he's weakened turns to fight - punch - jeff tries to stab with knife - I avoid the attack - turns into kitty - bites leg - hiss - turns back - STAY AWAY CREEPYPASTA! DID YOU KNOW NOT TO MESS WITH SMART KITTIES?
It's one of those weird things that are both scary yet I seem to have weird fantasies about, you know, dirty Jeff the Killer dream, after he stbbed me I was this ghost, and then I woke up.
Creepypastas are scary! They are the only thing that scare me to death! And that's saying something!


[Newest]Can you sleep after hearing about "The Rake"?

That is my phobia


20Elf On the Shelf
It's creepy like a clown. It looks creepy like a clown. It's weird to have it on your shelf, that means every time you walk into your living room you see that creepy little thing. Staring at you. Those should be put up on Halloween. Not Christmas.
Its always watching you...
My cousin had six of those little creeps, and I could not sleep all that night just due to their presence in my home.
[Newest]He moves that's so creepy
