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
The scariest thing ever.
Your trapped, lonley, and hungry.
And then later on you will die from hunger really scary.
It is really easy to imagine how to get out of such situations but if you happen to get in one only then you kno the real thing hw it actually feels man I would actually die out of shock if I was burried alive

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.
Laugh out loud, thanks

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
I would rather listen to JB's singing than be stranded in the ocean, thank you. JB haterz, I definitely don't like him either, but please stop spamming every list!

"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!

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.


Why isn't this at least number 2 even seeing the word makes me shake
More comments about Spiders

You can't breathe the whole time and it's just... Freaky.
Imagine just screaming the breathing in the water and dying
It's my worst fear and I'm a pro swimmer, dying because your suffocating. T^T
You die slowly and painfully

7Lost In Space
Being lost in outer space is the most horrifing thing I can think of, should be higher on the list, maybe even at nΒΊ1, because there is nothing you can do in space, you KNOW you're dead when you get lost in space.
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.
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.


More comments about Lost In Space

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.


Zombies are the scariest thing since zombies.
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.

9Being stranded on an island with Justin Beiber
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
At lest he will die before you do. He spends too much time sing badly then knowing anything else. He would not know even a tip about how to survive and any bad choice he makes will kill him.

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!
I'm 10 and when I learned about John Wayne Gacy clowns scared me even more. I would be scared if there was a clown 100 feet away from me.

The Contenders

11Camping 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.

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 think snakes are scary for 3 reasons just like somebody said it w
Ould hurt being squeezed or bit and being poisoned would be scary.

13Plane 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

14Burning 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
You burn and suffocate, ugh

15The Unknown
The only reason we fear ghosts is because we don't know what they are. Same with UFOs.
I'm a kid and ghosts and demons are my #1 fear.
What we never see is what we always fear.


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
Nothing is scarier than endless suffering, pain, and separation from God.

17Elf 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.

19Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

20The Devil Inside
Good thing I believe in god

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.
I once read one about a virus the night I got a virus on my computer, and I didn't realise it wasnt real, so I got terrified and couldn't sleep all night, and then the next day I had an exam so I was in a big mess!

That is my phobia


23"The Scariest Picture On the Internet"
This is a real seeing I don't be crazy see google


Here's something strange about me: I'm not really that afraid of death. It doesn't really scare me. And I read a book, 'Heaven is for Real', and it really got me thinking of whether I'm going to heaven or hell...
I wish there was no such thing as this thing that you can't even be scared of because you won't be there when you have the chance to experience it
Even as a Christian, I still don't know what's going to happen when I die, yet I do at the same time.

26Osama bin Laden
Why is he not on here already
He was a scary sucker but he was killed

27Pop Ups
One of the scariest things since darkness. Most people get scared $&@: less from these loud, sudden blast of fear.
These things need to die and be forgotten about forever. Besides people are getting sick of them anyway.
They are not only scary. They are also EASY to do! Just have something scary pop out.

28Being Cheated On
Not scary - just so very painful. I can honestly say that I could/would never put anyone through this agony. It's the worst feeling in the world, especially if you're prepared to commit and dedicate your life, body, heart and soul to that one person. The pain is so bad and lasts a very long time.


This is so true I lived through this experience 20 years ago and to this day still cannot truly trust

29Naked People
The title should say Naked Fat People, that would be scary...
Hey, wait... Naked people ain't so bad! Giggety giggety giggety giggety!

Tornadoes are TERRIFYING! There giant and huge, their night time assassins, and their loud and scary. I'm afraid of Tornadoes, so you should to.
Tornados can destroy everything! & there is no way to get away from them.
They're only scary at night, if they're moving fast, or if they're huge. Otherwise, I am cool with em.

31Slender Man
I could'nt sleep for a whole year.
Ferry Scarry plus kills yore children


How could you not be afraid of pitch-black dark? If your just standing around, while fear surrounds you! Unexpected things could happen
You can't see in the dark- how do you know what is going to come creeping out towards you? That's just creepy.
If your in the dark, you don't know who'se watching you. Or who might be secretly creeping up on you so they could kill you when you least expect it. Many famous people back in the 1700s were afraid of the dark.

36Someone pranking you with scary maze game
I hate it when that happens.


It's just sad that there doesn't seem to ever be an end to war... So much suffering is horrible, and scary in a whole different way as well, it's totally out of our control and we are not able to stop it
Nothing like being shot the moment you turn around. Or witching your own friend be shot to death. CREEPY!
O. O I shiver when I think of turning around and seeing my mam/twin sister/dad/brother being shot and crumpling to the ground screaming...
It shall haunt me.

Blond is worser, because their scarier



I remember this magic event that scared me when I was little, does anyone remember it? If you do that's great but if you don't look it up on youtube, just type in teletubbies magic event magic house. It starts off with all four teletubbies sitting on the grass in a very far distance ( Erm, did you know? They were playing it safe! Duh! ) The camera cut to the sky with a grass ground below it, then four windows faded in and then a pink house with a red door with the number 4 on it faded in afterwards, then a shadow of a person from the waist up moving and speaking gibberish, at the bottom left window, the curtains opened to reveal a creepy puppet with red-ish lips, wearing blue and a blue tam o shanter hat with a red pom pom on top, he then sang a song in gibberish while the camera slowly zoomed in on him. I think they changed the puppet to a less scary one because they probably realised it was scaring the poor kids.
I have no idea why but I think teletubbies are psychotic. Mainly because for some reason when I was little watched that show all the time, but when I try to remember what it was about I can't remember anything, but I do kinda remember that I didn't exactly like it more than I was mesmerized... Then one day my baby cousin (around 3 years old at the time) came over and she was watching Teletubbies and I had to watch her. I noticed that unlike when she was watching shows like Dora she wasn't giggling or even smiling, throughout the whole thing she just stared at the screen, also for some reason when they show the teletubbies looking at you I almost feel like that's what the purple one was doing, looking at me. It was creepy man.

46Jeff the Killer
Jeff the Killer is not so scary to me. if you want a really scary killer than go look up Jeffery Dahmer.
It's not for me

47Giant Squid
No... this creature is so very big, strong and scary! I don't like Giant Squid but I like Squidward.


These things are mean! They pull you under, they bite you, and they try to rip off you oxygen tank. I can't even think about them without shuddering.


horrible, absolutly horrible creatures. They can break bones with that razor sharp beak, and the suckers really can pull flesh off.

55Grizzly Bears

Once you go in... Youll never be the same IF you ever come out... Fat people with shorts and their stomach poking out screaming kids and that one guy at checkout who looks like he's been waiting there for you and you've never met him then there's probably a Vietnam vet with ptsd as a door greeter and you'll spend a good half hour trying to find your car and there's panhandlers at every exit of the parking lot
Haha I died on this one. How the heck Walmart is scary
A truly terrifying experience to put it lightly

Uh... Either the person who wrote this is an intelligent alien or scared of himself. ?

Not so muhc but oh nevermind

68Being Sucked Into a Black Hole
Yes, if you know what truly happens being sucked into a black hole. This is seriously something terrifying as you will be erased from the universe. You can't do anything to save yourself if you're caught in the black holes gravity well. Once the black hole has pulled you onto its "horizon" the universe "above" will appear smaller as you're deep into the hole. When the hole to the universe disappears... Your molecular structure will eradicate, making you "disappear into thin particles." Or "Nothingness."
Just think about it, you are being pulled through a vortex of nothingness that is capable of ripping you atom by atom, and then crushing you down to the size of a pea.
I think that would be REALLY SCARY! πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

You mean Dick Chaney?
