Top 10 Best Creepypastas of All Time

To people who don't know what a CreepyPasta is, let me explain. A CreepyPasta is a short story that is posted on the internet that is designed to unnerve and shock the reader. I looked high and low for the best of the best, and here they are. Let's begin.
The Top Ten
1 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner. The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep".

Jeff the Killer was the first creepypasta I'd ever read, and boy was that a mistake for the first time. When I read it my mom and brother were at the park, I am almost never home alone so I took this as a chance to read something scary. Well I didn't mean horrifying, when I first read it I stood there and thought this isn't scary and then turned to Jeff Returns, that's where I started to get freaked out. I imediatly shut off the computer and ran into my bed room (taking my three dogs, two of which were very large and guard dogs) Then I turned on childrens T.V. and read some romance novel, anything to get my mind off of it. Because the more you think of it, the more it haunts you.

Jeff the Killer is poor-written, unrealistic, story that creeps me out even now two years later. I'm still afraid to sleep without my windows locked and whenever I hear a knock on it... well you get the idea.

I think it's a good pasta because it CREEPS OUT that is the point of creepypasta. Some grammar mistakes can be ignored if the story creeps out, and if you don't feel chills down your spine after reading one creepypasta story it means that story isn't creepy and it doesn't belong to the site. Jeff is creepy, not perfect but creepy!

I must say that Jeff was NOT my first creepypasta which also shows that it is creepy enough to be a number one.

He is the best creepypasta ever! I couldn't sleep the first 2 nights I read about him and now I can't get over him. His story was awesome! ! It has everything. It's tragic and all and I loved it very much. And I guess I'm not the only one. He is not the scariest creepypasta but surely the most loved and awesome one. I just can't get over him! He's such a fearless bad guy and his catch phrase gives me the shivers * go to SLEEP * And his voice... Wow. The best creepypasta ever... If they made a movie on his story... I'll go to the primer.

Jeff the killer definitely deserves to be number one. It was the first creepy pasta I read and by far the scariest. His picture really unnerved me. Every time I look at it I have to look away otherwise I'll be having nightmares about him for another year. Its an amazing story you really should read it. His catchphrase (GO TO SLEEEP! ) made me paranoid to sleep for weeks. Until I read this I wasn't really scared of anything but Jeff's story showed me what a real horror story is... Awesome CREEPYPASTA!

2 BEN Drowned

BEN is a figure who takes on the form of the Elegy of Emptiness statue of Link's human form in the title: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The writer is terrified by this entity because it seemingly haunts the game cartridge in a way that makes the victim of this pasta feel alone, hopeless and trapped. The reason this creepypasta belongs near the top is because it is a good read, it is very believable (contains videos), it is quite lengthy, and it goes into great detail with the characters, settings and events, allowing you to paint a vivid picture in your head. I highly recommend reading this one.

BEN Drowned was probably one of the creepiest things I ever read. His story outdid the Slender man, Jeff the Killer, and who-knows-what-else in the scare factor... The whole things is shockingly believable, too, having very accurate and haunting videos and a very detailed, long story as if the whole thing were completely and utterly true. And not to mention that this story was extremely well-written when compared to many other creepypastas.

I think this is the BEST one, because it has actual footage, the terror you feel in your chest while reading it, and it was done really well. If you have a feeling of choosing Jeff the Killer, read BEN's story first. I'm sure you will change your mind. To be honest, Jeff's story is a little too stupid... I mean, why would you be afraid of this guy? He has no eyelids, so it's very easy to just remove his eyes. Slenderman is even better than Jeff.

BEN is my favorite Creepypasta along with Jeff The Killer, Hoodie, Masky, Eyeless Jack and Laughing Jack but BEN is my number one favorite. I'm a huge fan of Legend of Zelda and when I first read about BEN, I was terrified of my electronics, afraid that he was going to crawl out of my phone or start glitching my laptop/computer but that was when I was 12, I'm not 16 and I still love Creepypasta (even though my anxiety protests when I'm home alone and I read about it)

3 Slender Man

I have seen Slender Man in the woods near Bridgeport Michigan. He was tall and skinny and had long tentacle like arms. My friends and I were in the woods exploring and we found this trail camera. When we took the S.D. card out it said look behind you. We all turned around and glanced through the Bush and there he was. Standing there. We all screamed and ran the whole 3 miles home. We stayed in the basement the rest of the day and night. Glancing out the window to make sure He didn't follow of home.

I think he is one of the urban legends that started the whole creepypasta wiki/story thingermajigs in the first place. I also think that the would scare a lot of people if they actually saw him. Wouldn't it freak you out if there was a 10 1/2 foot tall guy with no face tring to kill you? I certaintly know that most of the people in this world would be. Well, not most. But maybe the little kids. A lot of people would be all like 'how can he follow me? He doesn't even have eyes! ' That's what a creepypasta is right? Stories made to actually 'scare' people. So, please, let's all give him a little more credit, shall we?

So. I think it is generally recognized that it's a good crrepypasta. However, the thing is- a lot of people say Jeff the Killer is better. In all honesty, I wasn't able to get through the whole creepypasta. The premise? Cool and interesting. Hey, a little unoriginal, but I can work with that. But the writing just... didn't feel real! At all! And don't get me STARTED on his fangirls. Though I don't remember the exact words, I saw a fangirl write something like this:
I love him! He watches me while I sleep from my closet. I even think I saw him! He carved a scar into my arm. He probably thinks I'm dead now LOL. He is awesome!

Really. Yep, a 13 year old with his eyelids carved off is hot. Yep, LOGIC.

Slender man, however, doesn't rely at ALL on a handsome face. He doesn't even have one! The pictures make it feel more real (don't worry, I know it's not) and the fact that he is based on a ancient mythology is interesting to me. I'm not a MASSIVE fan, but he seems like ...more

The ongoing series by the Marble Hornets creates an atmosphere of a documentary, making it seemingly more believable than many other creepypasta's I've seen. With well done filmwork, and a very interesting, mysterious, and unnerving story, this will leave you looking out the window, fearing something is watching you, overall, making me like Slender Man the best.

4 The Russian Sleep Experiment

This is the first creepy pasta that I've read and after the experience, I've been traumatized with horror and shocked with fear. This was a new level in horror for me and a terrifying masterpiece. The goosebumps have not stopped ever since the reading. The psychological horror and gruesome twists almost physically force the vomit out of your stomach. This creepy pasta keeps the reader on the edge of their seats. This is the greatest creepy pasta ever written and it is truly worth your time. The end leaves the reader with a deafening silence afterward. This bone-chilling tale is riveting and the pure definition of the horror genre. I have one word of advice for those who want to read this piece of literature... DON'T FALL ASLEEP. " I must remain awake."- The Russian Sleep Experiment

While reading The Russian Sleep Experiment I felt myself get physically unhealthy. I grew dizzier and my breathing seemed to grow difficult, possibly as and attempt to hold back vomiting. Repeatedly I said "Oh my god. " It's literally horrifying not only the gore described but for me more some of the things said through those undergoing the experiment. I don't know if I'd recommend reading it or never reading it but it's the best creepypasta.

I find it sad that Jeff the killer,eyeless jack and many other pastas are so high on the list. Jeff makes no sense,eyeless jack has no concept or thought put into it. If you really appreciate horror stories than you would want to look past these cliché ridden stories. I love so many pastas which are nowhere on the list. The Russian sleep experiment is very good and actually has horror to back up the pictures unlike Jeff and eyeless jack. I never found Ben drowned creepy nor most other gaming pastas. There are plenty pastas I recommend but most on the higher places on the list are ones I wouldn't. Now this is my opinion so if you like them well good for you.

The Russian Sleep Experiment, I think, is a pretty scary CreepyPasta, mostly because it's believable. Most other CreepyPastas aren't so believable. You can tell yourself the other ones aren't real and be on with your life. But this one... The dear sorta sticks around a while, because we know that Russia is crazy and kind of abusive (No offense Russians! ). This is something that very likely happened.

5 Squidward's Suicide

The reason this creepypasta is scary is because it is hard to disprove. The Spongebob crew all say they saw it. If you don't know the creepypasta, it goes something like this:
"The show started off normal, with Squidward playing his instrument at a concert. The audio and video start to not match. However, it was quickly fixed. After playing however people start booing, even Spongebob, who's eyes look extremely realistic. If you watch Spongebob you probably know this is unlike him. Squidward starts to look scared. Then he screams. We were then treated with switches between Squidward and scary looking images. This goes on and on."

Squidward's Suicide was one of the very first lost episode creepypastas and it's also highly influential. The description of the dead children puts an ugly image in your head, and besides the overuse of the phrase "Hyper Realistic" It is still one of my favourite creepypastas ever and it also inspired me to write a few lost episode creepypastas myself. Today I'm still writing them and hopefully one of my stories will become the new "Squidward's Suicide" of our generation.

I was really scared of SpongeBob after reading this. All the blood, dead children, guns, noises, I was actually very confused. Hasn't Squidward dealt with boos before, or was he tired of being terrible, or knows he'll never be good? It was chilling and I watched the video, and I had no idea what I was looking at. The story was so detailed that I imagined that I was the intern staring at the screen, wondering what the heck I was witnessing. I might be afraid of the dark now.

O. O Of all the mind-numbingly creepy material I have seen and read over the years, this creepypasta disturbed me the most. They describe the scenes in this story so well, putting brain-assaulting images in your head that are difficult to remove. One of them being the picture. And, having seen many episodes of Spongebob as a kid, all those memories of our good spongey friend and his aquaintences have been pooed all over. I will never look at Spongebob and Squidward especially the same way again, and after reading this creepypasta, neither will you.

6 Eyeless Jack

Eyeless Jack deserves this because of how much he did spook me in the stories. The only thing I don't really understand is why after a long time (for any of the pastas) I am more with hysterical laughter instead of being scared. I just now live for the gore and graphic descriptions of death because of many of these stories.

Eyeless jack is just AMAZING he can be just as good as all of the other Creepypastas if the writer didn't do such a bad job... He's my personal favorite and all of my friends favorites! We all had a fight over who got to be eyeless jack for Halloween! And we ate kidney beans in tribute to him (laugh out loud it was gross)

He's just so awesome and he needs more credit for that! Even if the writer didn't give much detail, you can let your mind roam and make it up yourself, use your imagination and you can make it (whatever you think is best) just use your imagination... And he's just so huggable I mean seriously!

Where do I start...
EJ was forced to be what he is. To be honest I pitty him and felt similar things that he does. His state of mind is the most relatable to me. He feels what he does because he was turned into a creature he never wanted to be and then forced into a stereotype just by seeing what he wanted to be and the reality of the pain he went through. All I can say is that I can sympathize with him.

7 The Rake

They have proof this thing exists... video, news, picture... it's not something anyone would want to be real because of its blood-curdling appearance. This thing could possibly be an alien but is kept known as an unknown creature for its looks, The Rake has very little information known about him its body position makes it seem this thing was hit by a car or something and has only appeared twice through video and heard one. It may be deadly but it's quiet so it can easily slip into rooms without the victim noticing. It's a horrifying thing that makes my terrified when I see it. Reading about it makes me shiver.

Oh... my... god...
Ok, I only heard of this on Shane Dawson's channel but he explained clearly who the Rake was and this included graphics so that scared the hell out of me! I can no longer sleep the same... Okay, fine. I could not only sleep for one night and I'm no longer scared of him but that scared the hell out of me. Also, I live in New York so the Rake could easily get ran over by a car. Oh wait... but isn't he supposed to be described as a really fast and quiet monster? Nah, he'll probably kill me someday even when I'm in New York.

They say that he lives in forests of New York. But if you listen carefully, you may survive him!

Here's how to prepare:
1: lock your door, and keep your kids as far away from [the door] as possible.

2: turn everything off, The rake may just admit that nobody's home and go somewhere else

3: get a long weapon, preferably sharp, as the rake is actually very shy and would probably run away.

Here's what to do if the rake doesn't admit that your not home and comes in:

1: make a lot of noise if you hear footsteps. Like I said, he's very shy.

2: yell and pick up your long weapon and threaten the rake.

3: if 2 doesn't work, than hit the rake and continue yelling.

4: if all else fails, scream and use anything you can to beat the crap out of the rake.

5: and if that fails, use the most dangerous weapon you have in the house, and aim for the rakes eyes, if you're lucky, you can temporarily blind him, enough for you and your ...more

My dad owns a video camera in our woods. When we both went out to go look at the footage we saw him on one of the frames. There he was, crouched down. His glowing eyes staring at the camera. It was the scariest thing I've seen and I still haven't gone in those woods again. I hope no one else she's this trail camera cause they would be in deep trouble.

8 Smile Dog

Smile. Dog is a chain email/picture that is over the net. The description of the picture is said to be a dog, possibly a husky, with a human-like grin. In the background is a hand described as "beckoning", with a shadowy figure in the corner. It has been said that this figure is the notorious Jeff the Killer, though that still is unknown. Anyone who receives the picture will be plagued with nightmares telling them to "spread the word". Essentially, you have to pass the picture on to someone else for the dreams to stop. Whether you send it as soon as you get it, or keep it locked up inside you, the dreams can drive you crazy. The question for you is, could you bring this on someone else? Could you really do that to someone? Could you spread the word?

I can remember one day I was reading the smile dog story and that night I couldn't go to sleep because I had a bout of anxiety, and I kept on seeing smile dogs face every time I closed my eyes... you can never forger that face

Terrifying. Haha, my only friend that knows of creepypasta said if I didn't stop acting so scared of this pasta, they would send me an email with the picture attatched! Haha, I think this is the scariest creepypasta because if you think of it, anyone could get a disturbing picture linked t an email.

One of my favorite Pastas ever. I have become accustomed to the image, but feel like I am melting away when I stare at it. Inner fear develops, while I remain very calm and fatigued as well as felling the usual melting sensation on the outside.

9 Laughing Jack Laughing Jack is the titular main antagonist of the Creepypasta story of the same name. He is a sadistic killer clown who was originally an imaginary friend to a little boy. That is until the boy forgot about him. Follow his story through being made, forgotten, and becoming a sadistic killer clown, who now seeks to murder young children.

Below, that is not the story. The story is a father of a 6 year old son named James, and at night someone is trying to get James. His father told him to stay in the backyard when playing, and it looks like James is playing with an imaginary person whos name is laughing jack. Laughing Jack, a couple nights later had killed their dog and than the next night James. The father saw Laughing Jack face to face. When the father tried to stab laughing jack, he disappeared. One thing I don't get about the story is why did the father leave the child alone in a bedroom after knowing someone is after him?

Laughing Jack was a great hit, although his author seems to be a bit, well... not going into that. This story was great, though when someone mentions this pasta, I think of the original and the origin, which are both fantastically written, creatures preying on young children also hit the spot for me, and it also applies to the fear of clowns a lot of people have while adding a strange twists of how he acts as an imaginary friend. All in all, it's an awesome pasta.

Sweet! This guy is creepy. Oh and by the way, Laughing Jack is a kid's "imaginary" friend. His mother keeps on having strange dreams about him, and "Pop Goes The Weasel." Eventually, one night she goes into her son's room, only to find Laughing Jack has tied her son up. She tries to stab Laughing Jack, but he disappears, making her stab her son. It ends with her in an asylum saying that she can hear "Pop Goes The Weasel" and she doesn't have much time left.

Laughing Jack is actually well written compared to Jeff the Killer as well as Laughing Jack actually scares me compared to Jeff The Killer, Ben Drowned and Eyeless Jack. His whole concept is creepy. Who isn't scared of clowns, especially clowns which like to rip out your organs and turn them into balloons. He also has a very cool back story. Better watch out children.

10 Suicidemouse.avi

This is an amazing creation and a crazy video, because in all honesty, this story has a suicidal Mickey Mouse, and that's not new! Back when Walt Disney was still designing the comics, he had one artist make a sad and horrible comic of Mickey losing Minnie and making three attempts at his life which were all comically foiled. This comic strip surely inspired the idea of this creepypasta, and is slightly disturbing to realize Mickey WAS suicidal! The worst part of the true fact is the third time he tried he turned on the gas pipe in his house so he would run out of oxygen, which is exactly how Walt Disney's mother died, he had attempted to fix a gas problem and she asphyxiated a few weeks later, and this morbid death was incorporated in his comic! Walt Disney by himself with what he's done is almost just as disturbing as a fake story!

This one is really really creepy. It is really dark and scary. What makes it creepy is first at starts of with him just walking and a creepy broken piano playing in the background and then it just fades in the back. This goes on 6 minutes and then it shows mickey mouse just walking. Then a little scream is happening that gets bigger and bigger than his eyes go white and his teeth go blood red and then he just looks like a monster then... He dies. Whatever he was doing, While he was walking he was drugging himself with a syringe that has dangerous drugs that can kill you. He kept doing it over and over until he died. Really creepy watch the video

I don't know If I watched the right video because the things I've read on the internet say the video was different, but this is the one I saw:
The first half of the video is just mickey, walking down a seemingly endless sidewalk while distorted piano music is playing, mickey is looking down at the ground, frowning. ten, he smiles, then, he looks straight ahead, showing his teeth in a wide, creepy grin. Then his eyes turn white, rather than black, and, as the music goes more distorted, large black marks appear under his eyes, and he looks down again, giving him a demonic look, then he starts to run, as the background sound turns from distorted music to distorted screaming. Mickey runs faster, and faster, and faster, until he trips, and seemingly dies, and everything goes silent.
Creepy, right?

I think this should be in the top ten. I've seen YouTubers play a game called 'Suicide Mouse' and that made me fall in love with this story. It's creepy, and the fact that there's a video makes me even more in love with it. I'm actually scared to watch the video on YouTube because of what the story said happened after that guy saw it.

The Newcomers

? Barbie.avi
The Contenders
11 Penpal

Straight up the only creepypasta I've read that has actually given me nightmares for an extended amount of time. And I'm not talking days or weeks, but straight up MONTHS. Why does it scare me so much you ask? And why does it make all other creepypastas look fake in comparison?

For one, it can actually happen. There aren't many pieces of solid evidence for supernatural beings, such as the rake and Slenderman. But there are plenty of murder and pedophile stories out there. That's what I learned after the age of ten: there is no such thing as the boogeyman, but there are murderers out there. Actual real life people with real life problems that have the delusion that ending one's life is okay, even if it means harsh punishment in the future.

Second: it digs deep into your darkest fear: the unknown. You never know what might be looking at you through your bedroom window. What's watching you in a nearby bush. There is no bigger dread than not knowing that, up to that one ...more

This introduces a chill to the reader without the traditional gore and jump scares, while also keeping the story compelling and completely disturbing. Honestly, most creepypastas don't actually scare me, they just disturb me a bit. But Penpal... Well, let's just say that Penpal gave me a dose of paranoia and maybe a bit of insomnia. If you like reading stories that make you check under your bed and jump at every noise that you don't immediately know the location of, I highly suggest this creepypasta.

Penpal is something I would be proud to call a creepypasta. It's something that can happen to any of us and it just seems so... Realistic. It's long but if any thing's ever been worth the read, its this. I've read Jeff the killer, slenderman, squid wards suicide, BEN drowned... And nothing has given me the creeps like this story did. The only thing I've ever enjoyed as much as that was the books of sand if I remember correctly.

Worth the read ten times over. If you prefer books to screentime, order the book by Dathan Auerbach (1000Vultures) off Amazon instead.

Thrilling the reader with its uniquely original storyline, Penpal repeatedly compels you to read more and more as you become infatuated with the narrator's story. To this day, I'm frightened of waking up in a place other than my own bed.

Penpal is, without a doubt, the absolute best Creepypasta I have ever had the pleasure to read.

12 Abandoned by Disney

This is the best. creepiest I've even read and my personal favorite. I literally had Mickey mouse phobia for like a week or two ( like one of the other commenters ) and kept seeing photo negative Mikey EVERYWHERE and couldn't get his flipin' voice out of my head. To add to this, this is also the most realistic pastas I've ever read and actually has a little bit of real history to it. Disney really did have a water park that closed for no apparent reason. It was only found out a couple of years ago by explorers that it closed due to a brain eating amoebi in the water.

It did not creep me out, rather it scared the hell out of me, I was barely paying attention when my mind became hijacked by the images of Mickey Mouse tearing his head off with blood splashing everywhere and not dying because their world is abandoned by God.

I don't remember the story well, but that mental image I will never forget, not only because it was scary, but also because it was awesome.

Oh so scary at first then it wasn't scarry, " "Hey, " it said in a hushed, perverted, but perfectly executed Mickey Mouse voice, "Wanna see my head come off? "

It started to pull at its own head, working its clumsy, glove-clad fingers around its neck with clawing, impatient movements similar to a wounded man trying to pull himself free of a predator's jaws...

As it worked its digits into its neck... So much blood...

So much thick, chunky, yellow blood... " THAT was my favorite part when I first read it.

This is a long read, but totally worth it. Things brings back mentions of your favorite childhood Disney movies, before it destroys anything Disney for you.. While this story is slightly outrageous, it grasps a sense of how Disney has some dark and subliminal messeges, and plays with that fact, making you wonder what else their hiding...

13 Ticci Toby

Ticci Toby is definitely one of my favorite Creepypastas, right up there with The Rake, Slender, and The Russian Sleep Experiment. The story is well written, detailed, and creepy. It's believable, too. I think that it should be higher up the list. I definitely think that Toby's story is better than Jeff's story. Toby deserves a higher spot.

I really like Ticci Toby's story, it was really well written. He is the same as masky, whenever he is nearby so is slenderman. Ticci Toby would be so difficult to defeat as he feels no pain. He is quite skilled with hatchets and has probably lost all sanity. He's a proxy so he will do anything, kill anyone or even torture someone.

Since he was little he delt with bullies for his Tics and also wasn't able to feel the pain cause of his disorders. Later on his dad became abusive and he ended up not liking him more and more each day. Later his sister died in a car accident and he was the one who survived. he became insane and ended up killing his father and I can understand as to why because he had a snap in the back of his brain.

I believe most people should relate to Toby. I can't believe he made it down to 28. He is one of the most lovable creepypastas. He deserves to at least be at 8. That is the lowest he should ever be. I just hope people don't pity him because of his disorders. He doesn't need the pity.

14 Psychosis

It's long but its worth a read. This is a great story to show a journey to insanity. It reminds us how fragile the human mind is. You keep on thinking again and again if he was insane or if some kind of entity was after him and that if the whole human race was really all dead... Or worse. What makes this story so amazing was the twist of the ending but you have to think a little more to realize that twist. The thought of something after him, the fear and who to trust, the story really let me experience that. Not sure with everyone else. I'm not scared of it much thanks to reading it about more than 5 times. I recommend this story. It blew me away when I read the ending. I discovered this story while going through YouTube and I'm happy I did. When I first read it... At night by the way... Around midnight. I was scared. It was written with a talented use of grammar and words too.

*spoiler? *
*spoiler :P*
*last spoiler alert*

It's funny though...
How his insanity ...more

Psychosis is brilliant. It is my favorite creepypastas and obe of the first oes I read. The only other stories I have read so far that come close are Penpal and The Showers. I enjoy how they develop the character and how he slowly loses his sanity. It is interesting the impact that Amy has on him at the end, and the plot twist is one of the most beautifully crafted plot twists I have ever seen. This creepypasta is much better than Jeff the Killer, Eyeless Jack, Sonic.exe, and is even better than Candle Cove, Smile Dog, and Abandoned by Disney. This story is worthy of a film.

The doctor read the paper the patient had scribbled on. It was barely readable, written in the shaky script of one who could not see. He wanted to smile at the man's steadfast resolve, a reminder of the human will to survive, but he knew that the patien was delusional.
After all, a sane man would have fallen for the deception long ago.
The doctor wanted to smile. He wanted to wisper words of encouragement to the delusional man. He wanted to scream, but the nerve filaments wrapped around his head and into his eyes made him do otherwise.
His body walked into the cell like a puppet, and told the patient, once more, that he was wrong, that there was nobody trying to deceive him.

This was the first long Creepypasta I ever had the patience to read, and boy I didn't regret it. Some of the Creepypastas I've read were tacky at best, and their "horror" degree didn't amount much to me (when they weren't making me laugh), but the subtleties and the psychological aspect of the story got to me in a way that made me whisper "Holy..." by the time the story finished. I will love it to eternity and back.

15 1999

What makes this creepypasta so good is not that it's scary, but just so convincing and creates a sense that this story may have happened. It really dives into the realms of disturbing and the sick, demented mind of a pedophile that creates a local channel for little kids, just so he can lure them into his house, torture them, and sacrifice them. There are a plot holes, especially when the parents of these kids that are lured into the house don't even bother that their kids are missing. But it's a well-written story with great suspense and goes into the mind of a kid watching the show, almost being lured into the house, and how his childhood was much darker than he remembered it years later.

This is brilliantly written, disturbing, and above all else, realistic. Not to mention fairly unpredictable. Honestly makes me feel lucky nothing like this has ever happened to me.

Run. Exe for story, BEN Drowned for style, and Marble Hornets (Original Slender) for presentation as Honorable Mentions.

What's so good about this one is that it's so believable and creepy. The lore behind Mr. Bear's Cellar and all of the other demented shows on that channel. But their is plot holes, like what did the parents of the dead kids do when they learned their kids were missing.

It's brilliant. Jeff is rubbish compared to it. Happy Apply copied this in a stupider way. It's a must read - the first one I ever read and the best. It's really convincing. Not for the faint hearted... Just remember. Never watch Channel 21.

16 NES Godzilla Creepypasta

I'd read creepypastas before, but this is the creepypasta that got me into creepypastas! I find it odd that so many people didn't like the ending, because the story did such a good job of building your hatred and anger for the villain that it was really, REALLY great to see the little bastard get his comeuppance at the end! I wish I could have viewed the sequel, but either it isn't posted yet or I just can't find it anywhere.

This was my third creepypasta, and I have to say it's the best. I'm having trouble believing this isn't in the top ten, since it's so damn good. Tons of pictures to accompany the story make it all the more believable and thrilling. I believe there's even music from the game you can find online. It's not exactly lose-sleep scary, but it's a great thrill ride and puts an amazing twist on the beloved original game.

It's not just a creepypasta to me, it's a novel. A story about a boy who got a shoddy copy of Godzilla: Monster of Monsters that directly involved a demon and his dead girlfriend is excellent! The images are well made and very convincing, Red is a genuinely creepy antagonist and the story was constructed superbly! Massive props to the writer for creating this masterpiece of a story!

Great creepypasta with a plethora of accompanying images to go along with it. Read it if you have the time. Fair warning that the ending is a bit naff, though.

17 Candle Cove

The end doesn't shock as hard as it did many years ago when I was first getting into pastas, but this story defined what a pasta could be for me. Unearths and rekindles those childhood memories we all have of creepy shows and characters that probably shouldn't have aired.

I knew about this one for a LONG time but I never really read it, so yesterday I did and now whenever I think of 'the marvelous misadventures of flapjack' this comes to mind REAL quick (they are sorta similar). Out of all the abandoned T. V show creepypasta's that I've seen (which I've seen a lot of) this is my favorite and just over all one of my top ten pastas, its really creative and the more you think about those shows you watched as a kid, they let us watch some WEIRD stuff, so this sorta takes me on a nostalgia trip when I read it. A really creepy one that is.

A group of adults chat online about a strange television show called Candle Cove that they used to watch as children. However, one strange thing they all have in common is that whenever they were watching Candle Cove, their parents would ask why they were watching television static. However, it is then revealed that Candle Cove isn't what it seems to be...

Why is this not higher on the list? It is amongst one of the best written and haunting creepypastas to date. Only recently have I reread this and I still found myself getting shivers at the end; to be honest I had forgotten what had happened as it's been so long since I've come back to the world of creepypasta but I have come to realise that MOST of the creepypastas ranking higher than this are actual complete BS. They do not deserve the popularity they have when masterpieces such as these start to fade away.
Come at me haters.

18 Herobrine

Herobrine should be at a higher place than this cause he is a bad a$$. And just think about it, you are in a large dark place by yourself and you suddenly see two white glowing eyes in the distance stalking you with a bloody sword in its hand. CREEPY.

I don't know how can people believe that stupid scenario of the dead brother, but I heard sightings from too many people to not believe in Herobrine. I think of him as the horror element of the game. I'd be glad to meet him.

Herobrine is REAL. I made a Herobrine spawner a couple of months ago, and nothing happened so I left my world. When I came back the next day, my entire world was underwater. THIS IS NOT FAKE.

He's real, Notch had 2 brothers:a half brother that he never met before, and Herobrine. Notch lied about him not having a brother Anyone who dosen't believe in him needs to WAKE UP.

19 Lavender Town Syndrome

Lavender town maybe a littlebit creepy like the ghost and others but the worst part is the song. They say it cause suicides. CREEPY! And this song has been stuck in my head for days until it stops every time I listen to it it will never get out of my head until I ethier wait until its gone or listen to some other music or watch some T.V. to get it out of my mind. Oh yea one more thing I know this is not a real creepypasta but its called creepypastaphoebia. Its where if you read a certain creepypasta you will be scared. The common ones are you can't sleep, nightmares, look everywhere, and other ones. Some are exclusive like for an example say if you read a squidwards suicide creepypasta and if you look at the photo and you ethier can't look at squidward or if you see a toy of him you use something to destroy it. And that's why I like the pokemon lavender town creepypasta.

Amazing! Awesome! I've heard the Lavender Town music, and I can honestly say I love it. It's creepy, and the story is one of the best. What happened? Why was this not in the top ten?!

The first Pokemon creepypasta I've ever read. Super creepy and it gives you that "Is this real? " type of feeling. Definitely recommend it to anyone.

Out of all of them, this one is the creepiest; there's no escape once you've heard it and it could be true.

20 Jane the Killer Jane the killer is the main character of the creepypasta story Jane the Killer: The real Story. She is know to be a rival to the creepypasta Jeff the Killer.

Jane. Jane she is pretty also very intelligent creepy pasta, but also almost impossible to kill being super fast, super strength, clear eyesight, also beauty because she can knock someone with her beauty and apparently hypnotize them. She also is a killer that doesn't kill innocent people (unlike Jeff the Killer)

Jane the killer is a good read but I think the twist with Jeff was not a good choice plus I think she should have a lone story one not involving Jeff.

Jane deserves to come 2nd on the list with jeff. The perfect couple. She is creepy and dangerous! She wears black to show you the danger she can cause. That's pretty awesome

A thoughtful story, while it may not be as scary, of a different viewpoint of the story of Jeff the Killer.

21 Normal Porn for Normal People

Not keep you up all night scary but creepy and best of all believable. I don't believe for a second that is real but something like this could easily be lurking on the deep web somewhere. It's also well written which helps to build the mood just right. Jeff never did anything for me, although the picture is creepy.

This story is very interesting, convincing and well thought out. It was also a good combination of bizarre and unsettling, and the author did a good job at making it believable; I usually think of things featured in creepypastas as being a pile of nonsense, but I actually thought the videos were real.

I love this creepypasta. There are others that come close such as Candle Cove and The Russian Sleep Experiment, but the thing that really pushes this one above the rest in my eyes is the realism. I wouldn't actually be surprised if something this messed up actually happened online.

This pasta is well-written, creepy, and best of all, it's believable. Pastas like Jeff the Killer get no reaction out of me because of how unrealistic they can be but this one could totally be real (despite it clearly not being so).

22 Cupcakes

I don't find this one creepy or scary. I enjoyed reading it though! I've had a few friends, who aren't a part of this fandom, read it and they were freaked out. I may or may not have laughed at them. Personally, I like stuff like this and, I don't have to worry about nightmares because I'm a lucid dreamer! Doesn't mean people don't die in my dreams...

Not scary, but disturbing. All the gore and cutting you read makes you unconfortable. I've read it many times and I don't think it's scary, I love it! Love the way that a cute happy pony can be so mad and sadistic, in my opinion it suits Pinkie Pie. But that's just me, I love twisted things, good become evil.

I wouldn't go as far as to say it's scary but definitely disturbing with the fact it's Pinkie Pie torturing Rainbow Dash to death to make cupcakes. Not to mention the fact that it was well written and also an original story and it's my favorite and should be higher on the list

Why is this not number 1? This is my absolute favourite creepypasta, although it's not scary it's incredibly gory. Especially since when I younger I had a Rainbow Dash stuffed toy.

23 Masky

Masky is a brilliant character from the channel MarbleHornets. I am actually quite scared of his character as he is shown to appear out of no where and is very aggressive. MarbleHornets was presented amazingly, seemed so real. I don't know how many times I have been jumped scared by Masky appearing around the corner in the videos. Masky also scares me as where ever he is, slenderman is sure to be close by. As well as he can easily tackle you and even kill you. The whole concept of him being anywhere anytime by him being teleported around by slenderman actually makes me paranoid and creeps me out.

Okay. I died a little from listening to his voice thing... It made me love him and not be scared of him... The funny thing is most of the voice things make me love them more than be scared of them.

Some people tend to think Marble Hornets isn't a creepypasta, but I can assure you this is an INTERNET HORROR story told through videos. Videos do count as creepypasta's.

My 3rd favorite Creepypasta ever. I love the story and the way he looks and his time with Marble Hornets. I love Masky's use of weapons.

24 The Harbinger Experiment

That song sounds like 60s AC/DC lol. That song it sounds like this: oahoaaoaooahaohaoahaoaho. I learned about this on amazon prime the stuff called role play Creepypasta it's epic. There is also an scp that I now watch. I watched all the rp Creepypasta episodes.

Long but worth it.

25 The Strangest Security Tape I've Ever Seen

I've seen and read and listened to someone read it and man. Was I spooked by how realistic it seemed to be. God please don't tell me this is actually real!

I love this one. It's creepy like a creepypasta should be and it's interesting at the same time. One of the best in my opinion.

It's a little creepy but mostly really weird and interesting. Time loops...

OH my gosh. Has anyone seen Mr. Creepypasta read this? it's the worst and best thing ever.
