Top Ten Scariest Things Ever

The Top TenXW

1Being 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

You're heavily restricted from movement, there is only little oxygen reserved with you, your screams will not be heard from six feet under and worst of all, you will eventually die in the slowest and painful ways; either from pure starvation or being eaten alive by the vermin and insects that make their way into your vicinity. This is by far, the scariest thing ever and deserves every right to be at number 1.

You can not breath and it is dark

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.

I don't like Justin beiber

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 cry myself to death.

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

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!

Have you seen The Haunting Hour named Fear Never Knocks

5Lost 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. - ethanmeinster

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.

Has anyone ever watched Gravity? - AnonymousChick

6Plane 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. - lukestheman4

You know you have pretty much no chance of survival knowing you'll die that's scary

Imagine seeing all of the people dead if you had a chance of surviving. The blood would be scattered everywhere and you would have nobody to help you.

The fear kills ya

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 - Ananya

This is worst when you're in the bath and you can't ask for help

V20 Comments

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. - TheFrodo

If you think there is nothing Scariest then hell then you are not lucky person time is drawing near

I agree that Justin Bieber's singing is scary but come on! This should be number 1!

9Burning 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

It will be scary knowing that your being burned alive

10The 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! - keycha1n

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

I think mermaids are 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. - fireinside96

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.

Look up seven reasons a zombie apocalypse would fail. The zombies would die near immediately.

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!

Clowns are so very scary

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!

Snakes are so cute, yet strangely scary!

Um Spiders are scarier these things are just cool not scary at all

14Nuclear Warfare/Fallout


People now have enough nukes to nearly destroy the earth and if not, send us back to the Stone Age. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I mean,enough power to blow up a whole city is terrifying to me


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?

I'm still scared even though I don't know the stories because I haven't read them. I know a bit about Jeff, but HE US THE WORST don't LOOK HIM UP I DID AND I REGRET IT!

Jeff the killer ruined my childhood. His face still haunts me.

Oh its scary alright

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.

Kill it before it lays eggs!

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

18Slender Man

Nah, I think he's cool. If it was possible, he would be proposed by me right now. In the Niger Falls.



Another night I saw that I was standing in my room near the window. I was combing my hair my mom to was there she was standing behind me &was talking to me about something. Suddenly her facial expression changed like she was really upset or scared, she was looking @the window very stunned. &then when I asked what happened to her she told it was nothing while saying this she was sweating &then she slowly started moving backwards &when I looked in to the window I saw a black skull Iike thing, & then suddenly I was no able to move I fell on the bed but my mom was still standing there staring @me &when my uncle ran towards she stopped him & sad don't go & then both of them were staring at me I was not able to move it was like someone is controlling me but there was a photo of Jesus on my shelf so I tried my best to stretch my hands towards that photo but something was preventing me from touching it, Istretched my hands with great force and @last when I touched that photo I felt like ...more

That is my phobia - awesomeriki

I offenly get nightmares that r bad really really bad. One nignt I had a nightmare about
An old man saying that your aunts spirit is in your work area. Other night I saw a lady dressed in a white gown latched on the wall she had a black burned skin and her hair was falling on her face &also she was wet, when I opened my eyes it was still there I was not able to move for a sec it felt like I was paralysed, suddenly I rubbed my eyes &the that lady slowly disappeared.

20Being 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!

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.

That is scary. He will start singing call me maybe.
