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]I die inside while listening to it I don't even know if he's a guy anymore

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]So scary. Whenever I see a picture or even a map of the cold deep ocean near the arctic I get scared. I imagine swimming in the cold ocean with waves everywhere looking down and seeing an endless, terrifying blackness. It's horrifying

"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.

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!

You can't breathe the whole time and it's just... Freaky.
Imagine just screaming the breathing in the water and dying
It is a vary dreadful situation vary scary to experience


[Newest]It is my worst fear

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 aren't scary but they are, STUPID!

8Lost 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 nº1, 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?

9Plane 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.


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]People are idiots, give me proof that hell exists, the bible are stories in a book. Vote on something real

The Contenders

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

12The 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

13Burning 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?!

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]Oh MY GOSH that would be soon terrible

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!

16Nuclear Warfare/Fallout
Creepy zombies,aliens and (2 headed?!) fusion people and animals EVERYWHERE!


17Camping 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...

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?
Creepypastas are scary! They are the only thing that scare me to death! And that's saying something!


I got nightmares because of this! It all smile dogs fault!
[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

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...
If we didn't die, or at least didn't know we could die, NOTHING would be scary. What's scarier than not knowing what happens when your body disables? Nothing, and nothing probably happens. You can't control your body and everything goes black, will you be able to see the black? CAN you see? It's like being blind, deaf, unable to feel, smell, or anything.
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

22Pop 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.
[Newest]Remember the car commercial? If you know what I'm talking about, you survived a heart attack

23Getting One of the Most Deadliest Diseases
Diseases are probably the scariest things in the world. Some can't be cured, even with today's modern medicine. Plus, you'd be getting killed (and it's a very slow and painful death) by something you can't see. I am afraid of death, but death from a deadly virus is even worse.


Get Small Pox, take a bath in soap, success.

24Going to Hell
How this different from Hell
This should be number for a lot of reasons
Should've voted for this

25Pregnant Justin Bieber
I'm sure Justin a Bieber in labor would sound better than his singing...
Not even this. Just Justin Bieber in general, pregnant or not.
Justin Bieber is pretty terrifying these days, isn't he?

26Being 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

27Slender Man

28Naked People
Nudity is natural. I mean, I agree with that other guy. Naked fat people would be scary.
The title should say Naked Fat People, that would be scary...

29Seeing a Close Family Member Die Slowly and Painfully
My heart sank. My dog, she was there before I was born. She is dying slowly and painfully we may have to put her to sleep. I feel like crying. I know she isn't a person but truthfully I love her more than my brother.

Please don't die now Ellie! My beautiful black lab mix!
I feel you my bird died. He was older than me. It was horrible watching the life and energy go out of him.


I don't know what would happen if I had to see my mom or dad die in a coma or something
My niece died asleep when she was 4 months very recently.

30The Devil Inside
Good thing I believe in god
Sarah Palin as President!

31"The Scariest Picture On the Internet"
This is a real seeing I don't be crazy see google
What is it? Slenderman, jeff the killer, bloody clown?

32This List
I just laughed at this


Yep. That's all I have to say.

33Jeff the Killer
Jeff the Killer is not so scary to me. if you want a really scary killer than go look up Jeffery Dahmer.
I searched him up really quick and I immediately got scared. I am never searching him up EVER AGAIN!


It's not for me

34Little Girls With Long Black Hair Carrying Dolls In Corridors
Youve seen Alma and fear its just scary this is coming from a 14 year old willing to grow her hair a strike terror into mens hearts
Blond is worser, because their scarier


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.


[Newest]Super scary I'm glad my state doesn't have them

36Random stranger coming up to you in a dark alleyway
Now that's scary! I couldn't imagine what he would do. Kill me, beat me, rape me, drug me.

37Scary Maze Game
This game scarred me for life. At the end of level 3, the scariest face ever pops out at you unexpectedly. SO SCARY
I accidentally played this game with my sister last year and we lost and got freaked out so much! In fact, didn't touch a computer after that for weeks! I even play video games and watch YouTube video with muted sound! Yikes!
If you want to prank your friends, just tell your friends to PLAY THIS GAME!
[Newest]Now this game is not scary because everyone know this game.

Big ones are scary.

39Old People Having Sex
They're too old for that stuff!
Truly scary to even think of.


You are totally right creepy

40Osama bin Laden
He was a scary sucker but he was killed
Why is he not on here already
Thank God he's dead..


41The Video For “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”

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.
[Newest]I have the phobia.

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!

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

60Justin Bieber

61Bin Laden under your bed
Bin laden's dead now so it's not like he's coming back.

78Kim Jong Un Dropping a Bomb On Your House
This would be bad...

Ebola has to come in 1st place, because it's taking us to extinction.

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.
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.

81Being Left to Die and Knowing You're Going To
That's what SAW's for

82Silent Hill Video Game
Play this game from number 1 to 4 then comeback here drop your comment.

83Scary Movies That Say "Based On a True Story"
I think that the scariest movies are the ones that are based on true events. Here's a list of 10 famous horror movies that you wouldn't believe were based on real events.

1-The Exorcist.
2-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
3-A Nightmare on Elm Street.
4-The Exorcism of Emily Rose.
5-The Amityville Horror.
6-The Blob.
7-The Hills Have Eyes.
9-Wolf Creek.
10-Child's Play.
The only horror movie based on a true story that's actually terrifying is Psycho. In fact, the true story is scarier than the movie.
Creeps you out doesn't it? If it doesn't, something might be wrong with you. Just saying. Clowns are creepy too. Pale, white face, scary eye makeup. Eugh.

84Being Chased by a Tsunami


86Home Alone 4 (Because It's So Terrible)


88Your Best Friend Dies

89Happy From McDonald's
