The Top Ten

Being Buried Alive
The scariest thing ever.
your trapped, lonley, and hungry.
and then later on you will die from hunger really scary.
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

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.

"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.

5Being 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

6Being 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
I will kill myslef then be here with him

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 nÂș1, 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.
Being lost in space is probably the worst way to die! You have no food, oxygen, company, or chance of survival.

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

9Camping 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
If I went out camping just as I
Played slender I wouldn't go camping

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
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.

The Contenders

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!

12Burning 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

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

14The Unknown
The only reason we fear ghosts is because we don't know what they are. Same with UFOs.

15Elf On the Shelf
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.

16The Devil Inside

17Pregnant Justin Bieber
This one gave me nightmares

18Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

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


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.

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

Come on. This has to be number 1. It's endless torture and pain. What's worse than that?

25Osama bin Laden
Why is he not on here already
He should be number 1


26Pop Ups
One of the scariest things since darkness. Most people get scared $&@: less from these loud, sudden blast of fear.
A cheap way to scare people and annoying as hell. Some people are easily scared and therefore really fear these(some even get heart attacks). But the worst WORST part are the commenters that say how wimply and pathetic we are for being scared of these. Douches


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.

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

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.

38Giant Squid
No... this creature is so very big, strong and scary! I don't like Giant Squid but I like Squidward.

51Being 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.

Whether it be an incarnation or a concept, the basis of everything evil is one scary thing
