Top 10 Scariest Creepypastas

These are creepypastas that scared me the most. Its almost Halloween so lets bring some nightmares out.

The Top Ten

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".

The actual Pasta itself wasn't actually that scary to me... I was seriously beginning to think it wasn't as scary as people say it is until the end, and then I scrolled down and saw the picture. Let me tell you, I AM SCARRED. BIG TIME. Whatever you do, DON'T LOOK UP THE PICTURE, YOU WILL REGRET IT. Thanks to this whenever I read a Creepypasta I scroll carefully and if I see even a corner of a picture I either delete the browser page or just close my eyes and scroll past it (depending on the story so far) I haven't read the sequel but I don't intend to. People, please, take my advice here: You know when your friends see something or are talking about something and you want to know what it is but they say you don't wanna know but you keep begging them to show you? DON'T DO THAT ABOUT THIS. Seriously, I'm afraid to go anywhere dark and I can't go into my bathroom... for some reason, only my bathroom and the others are okay, but just DON'T DO IT! Damn I haven't slept for days.

The scariest thing about this creepy pasta is that guy's face! I mean, just look at it. That is ugly. Uh-oh, he's here! Aah. *Blood Splatter*.

This Creepypasta isn't the least bit scary. It was actually pretty damn boring and painful to read. I don't see why he's so popular, so beloved, so commonly known, and well received within this fandom; he's totally and utterly terrible. Most overrated creepypasta ever.

Jeff The Killer Seems Like A Really Sad Creepypasta Knowing That the girl in the original picture committed suicide. :(

The Russian Sleep Experiment

This was the first creepypasta I EVER read! Talk about getting off to a strong start. It's like the first time I had seafood was in Maine and it makes seafood everywhere else seem subpar...It's the same thing for creepypastas. This one turned me into a creepypasta junkie and I've never stopped chasing that first high.
From the idea, the imagery, the symbolism, and the incredible plot, this isn't just creepypasta at it's best but WRITING at it's best.
There IS a short film that can be found on youtube that, while nowhere near as effective, gives a glimpse into how well this story could work as a film. By developing the character of the prisoners, their transformation into inhuman monsters has even more weight. This could be a grand slam of a horror film in the right hands

Picture is the scary part.

What I love about this one is the great detail that is described and the way it's written is just like an actual factual report or account of the experiment. At times it can seem realistic but it's also so unnatural and warped. The ending is also very unexpected.

This one was so scary I didn't want to go to bed.
Everyone reading this comment, go read this creepypasta NOW!

BEN Drowned

This creepy version of Link is not creepy at all I was not scared of it when I was in second grade

I remembered this made me paranoid for a week. I was literally scared to be alone even if the sun is out.

Favorite creepypasta can be scary to me
God that statue though

While BEN Drowned is one of my favorite creepypastas, it isn't scary.

Slenderman The Slender Man is a fictional supernatural character that originated as an Internet meme created by Something Awful forums user Eric Knudsen

I've heard so many tales and stories about slenderman and they don't creep me out but it's fun to listen and talk about them

Slenderman Is The Most Well Known Creepypasta For Me. I Grew Up With The Legend, and I would always play it in my backyard ahahah!

Imagine a tall figure stalking you and your friends and then dragging you away and eating you alive with his disposable mouth.

Plays on everybody's fear of premature death. On the creepypasta wiki it says that the slenderman likes to especially target people who are paranoid about his existence. Tell me this isn't scary. And the symptoms of slender sickness are so common, anyone can believe that they are being hunted by the slenderman. Another thing is how unlike some of these other creepypastas which are people who died, events which happened in the past or only can cause harm if you do certain specific events, the slenderman is a physical being that can kill you, and can be anywhere around the world at any given time. You can't kill him, and there is no escape. He can supposedly stalk you for years until he finally kills you. This guy will make you to scared to look out windows of a night. If this isn't scary, then I don't know what is

Squidward's Suicide

When I first saw him it always gave me memories when I watched Nickleodeon

This is a creepy DUMB (yea I said it) lost episode from Spongebob Squarepants, And all lf my childhood I LOVED SPONGEBOB. When the creepypasta came put when I was 10 I was heartbroken, Terrified, and sad.

The story didn't scare me until I watched the video. The eyes of the characters are so creepy! Now whenever my little brother watches SpongeBob and Patrick and SpongeBob are playing outside, all I can imagine is squidward inside with that shotgun thing against his head.

SpongeBob and friends are outside chortling, and where is squidward? Sitting upstairs in complete silence putting a shotgun shell through his bloodshot eyes


This is my new favorite creepypasta. Amazing story, extremely well written, so realistic, it all fits together to create the perfect creepypasta. Very long, but very worth it! If the length intimidates you, don't let it! It' amazing! 10/10.

This one is a little long but it's worth reading

Realistic, super creepy, and very long. If you have the time, read it.

Nothing like good old fashion child abuse to keep you from falling a sleep. 1999 and the Russian sleep experiment are the ones that have messed with me. Creepy!

Smile Dog "Smile Dog" is a story about a cursed image file. The image shows a large German Shepard or Husky dog that is smiling.

I love smile dog my friends even call smile dog because I creep them out by smiling and scaring them, smile dog is my favourite

The Smiling Dog Is One Of The Scariest Creepypasta's Out There. Every Time I Look At The Picture It Sends Me Chills Down My Spine.

I saw the file and I immediately panicked. I stayed awake for about 2 days XD

I agree with this one except for the picture. Like really, what was it?


I love this story! Creepy but interesting! (Never gonna buy a sonic plush though)

Why is this on here? Cliche after cliche after cliche with ridiculous and stupid moments and an idiotic story and main character.

Nah, this is just one big clichefest. Blood, gore, satanism, all the works. The rom hack is pretty cool, though.

Who wants to play sonic after playing that game?

Suicide Mouse

This episode is very disturbing. I heard about this from my friend. I did not watch this, so I will tell you what my friend saw. Mickey Mouse walks across a street for 2-3 minutes. Then the screen goes black for 2 minutes, and you hear a woman screaming. And then Mickey walks across the street again, but it's a bit longer, and Mickey's face slowly molds into a psychotic smile, that takes up 2/5 of his face, larger than I could ever make on my own face, and his face is covered in scratches. This goes on for a while, then he trips over "something" and he molds into a "skeleton demon" but still keeps the scratched up face, but now has horns. This goes on for another while, then the screen goes black again, and the woman screams again for 2-3 minutes, before the scratched up face appears on the screen, because the episode is done. Very disturbing

Not only is this scary but it is extremely disturbing. It is Mickey Mouse walking down an endless street for 3 minutes before cutting to black for a couple of minutes then it returns to Mickey doing the same thing but this time it is a woman screaming for about 4 minutes with a grin on his face. At one time of the episode it shows Mickey Mouse's face indicating that it is the end of the episode. The first person to watch this episode committed suicide. The end!

I haven't seen this video before but I will watch it at home. It sounds more interesting to me than scary.

This is nightmare indusing, this is childhood ruining, this makes you want to watch Micky Mouse club house. GOD DANG REALISTIC SCREAMS!

Ronald McDonald House

Never heard of this creepypasta but want to find out about it.

Holy hell. This was definitely the scariest one yet. Really well written too. I was seriously hoping he got out of there alive.

I have never been shaking from a creepypasta since I first read the Red Mist. This was seriously the most messed up and sickening story ever and is making me seriously want to stop reading creepypasta as a whole

This story is so unnatural and unsettling in every single way. It combines the elements of being alone, darkness, insanity, clowns, and gore. It deserves to be higher on this list.

The Newcomers

? Supernatural Power

what is that creapypasta

The Contenders

Abandoned by Disney

This was TERRIFYING. Oh my gosh... The nightmares of that costume. And that Mickey Mouse voice, "Hey, wanna see my head come off? " OH my gosh.

Oh my gosh. This gave me SO. MANY. NIGHTMARES. The costumes were horrifying.

It is very scary I can't believe that Mickey appears and scares the heck out of me

I never went to Disneyland and I will never go there. Even if I win tickets, I will donate that to Make a Wish or something like that

Lavender Town Syndrome

I swear- This... I listened to the audio and it gave me headaches for about 2 hours! Never listen to the audio! The story was creepy but I LOVED it!

This pasta is actually pretty creepy. It makes it sound so real and the whole thing was sad too. It made me glad that Pokemon Blue version was the first game I ever played, not Red/Green! I recommend this pasta to any Pokemon lovers out there, definitely a good read and not too scary.

Pokemon can be scary and suicide making. Well that's it. If I'm missing something please add it on here. Well bye and good luck sleeping tonight after reading these Creepypastas. And happy halloween.

Yea this one is pretty creepy I will say but I don't know I have never actually heard the Lavender Town theme so I can't judge it much.


I find this story creepy! It's definitely in my top tens.

Oh my gosh! I am still paranoid to look in the mirror to see my face look similar!

I really wish I never read it and I'm still getting over my nightmares

1 of the best I've read

Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv

The backstory behind this video is mind numbingly disturbing!

I've seen a picture of the original guy. It's fake, don't worry. A visitor here said they watched the whole thing, and that visitor didn't take eyeballs out. You're safe.

I hope you know that is not the full video

He was identified but I forgot his name

Annabelle the Doll

If it's the one I'm thinking about the film I've had so many people have said the film is really creepy

This isn't even a creepypasta it's a movie based in the conjuring universe

Just watched the movie. I found it disappointing. It was too much like chucky the doll. A possess doll tries to kill a family and so on.

The scariest thing about it is that its true

The Rake

If I see something like this, I'm getting the hell outta mah country.

In my opinion, The Rake is probably the scariest. Even though pretty much all Creepypastas are fake, The Rake is probably the most believable. I don't know about anyone else, but I find a hairless dog like creature scarier than some faceless tall guy in a suit. While Slenderman just stands around looking like he is upset you didn't show up to his birthday or something, The Rake mutilates you with your blood acting like a sprinkler or something, I don't even know... But in my opinion the scariest Creepypasta out there as of now.

Does the rake stalk you for years? While this is still really scary, I'd have to say that the slenderman is scarier

The Rake is the scariest thing of all time. Anyone else agree? My neighbour was invaded by this creepypasta and describes him as large, scary and fast. He spoke the words "kill" and murdered her beloved cat, Fluffy. Her body was ripped and was streaming with blood. She says that he then turned to look and her and ran towards her. He touched her shoulder and scampered away. It is unknown where he went next. My neighbour now suffers terrible phobias and paranoia. I am afraid that he will stand at the foot of my bed at night and stare. I am terrified that he will whisper words of horror and look deeply into my eyes. He may be the last thing that I will ever see,

Makes me close my windows and blinds and sleep with the covers over my head with only a small hole in which to stick my face out. I have actually done that since I was like 6 or 7 (because I was afraid of lots of stuff then) and I still do it. It's just unconscious routine that went from feeling scared without the covers over my head to feeling awkwardly exposed and weird.

I don't know how old you are now, but that is sort of a problem if you are scared of everything at night. - TheInsomniac

The SCP Foundation

SCP Foundation is not a Creepypasta, or a part of the fandom. SCP and Pasta are completely different fandoms.

Not a creepypasta but, I still think this is a brilliantly crafted world. Always nice knowing any second a monster of unbelievable power will wake up and destroy the world. Honestly the SCP Foundation lore is very lovecraftian.

Scp 682 stomps on everyone else

Ahh its scary Because it seems real but if it wasntits not scary like a thing like the weeping angels that if you don't look at it it kills you its kind of a copy but the detail was good so a goo read I would say but not scary

The Pocket

I should stop looking at creepypasta photos!

Weeping Angel

This one comes from doctor who but I'm not sure if it is a pasta or not Lol

Wait weren't there weeping angels in doctor who?

I see one behind me what do I do please help

Lol how did you post that, the weeping angel should've kill you by now. - TeamRocket747

The weeping angel is scary even the picture she would've kill you

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.

I'm a bigger fan of Jeff, but Jane is a badass too! I don't totally blame her for wanting to get even with Jeff, for I would want revenge too if someone took my family from me. But still, think of what Jeff went through.

Jane sucks, she is just another cliche killer with no depth and no motivation to kill. Jeff the killer is horrible but Jane is worse

It's just a spinoff of Jeff the Killer!

Not very scary at all. Also quite overrated, along with Jeff the Killer.

Eyeless Jack

Way too short and not scary at all. Also, how did he not feel his kidney get pulled out?

I love EJ as a character, adore his design, and find his concept a little creepy, but he is not scary. Not even in the least. He shouldn't be on this list.

This Is SUCH a good read. I love Jack as a character and the story itself will really make you think

I love reading the story again and again because not only was a friend of mine in a cult similar to the story but I ALSO HAVE A FRIEND NAMED JACK

Tails Doll

Normally, creepypastas just make me scared at night. Not once have they given me nightmares. Except for the tails doll. That one gave me a nightmare. I don't remember the whole thing, but I do remember a few 2 second parts of it, all of which had the Tails Doll floating around on a colored background with red, glowing eyes. About the waking up in the middle of the night thing, that just happened because I had 1) gotten scared of a new creepypasta, the teddy bear 2) My friend told me that there is a 90% chance that if you wake up in the middle of the night for no reason, it's because you're being watched. Combine the 2, and you wake up in the middle of the night 4 times!

So, if I ever ever ever see a red dot in the dark (which will probably be my Wii), the dot gets it with my sword. This one scares me to this day. Never ever playing a Sega Saturn game to be careful

When I read this I was checking out of my window and waking up in the middle of the night for 4-5 weeks hoping that I will live.

This doll makes me wanna run away.

Annora Petrova

Its really great but the picture that everyone makes a big deal of isn't scary at all. Oh and can someone tell me why the picture is scary?

Hell, the scariest part of the pasta is the photo, it made me never want to sleep again


I find this story much better than say Jeff the killer, one because it's written better, but mostly because it's very realistic. A teenage boy cutting his face without getting an infection somehow and dying his hair with fire is just impossible. That's why it isn't scary. Things that are closer to reality are way more scary because it could happen. Kids getting stalked by older men happens all the time and that's terrifying. The fact the story makes the main character so clueless to the things happening while the reader can make sense of it is done so well. Like when he finds the blankets and food under his house he has no idea why they're there and makes so big deal out of it. The reader on the other hand can see why they're there and it's so effective in creating a great atmosphere. The story also leaves you to connect the dots in some cases. The more and more you figure out what's going on the more you fear for the characters. The ending was definitely not a disappointment. Every ...more

I've been looking up lists of "The Best Creepypastas Ever" and am extremely surprised it took me so long to find this one on a list. It's at number 38 on the list that I found and, especially after reading a lot of the other ones, I don't understand how it could be so low on the list. I got chills big time when I read the last paragraph, it was extremely moving. The author is an excellent writer and should consider writing full novels. 10+/10 definintely the best I've read.

I am happy to announce to you that Penpal has been expanded, and a full length novel has been released! You can get it on Amazon. - GREATEST

One of my favorites, along with Psychosis. I voted Penpal, however, because even though I like Psychosis better, Penpal is terrifying because it could, and sadly has, happened. The deaths of people close to him also show how evil humans can be and the last little part about Josh teared me up. This is a beautiful story, and deserves the novel it received.

I read it and even though it is a long read. It is totally worth it 10/10

Mr. Widemouth

One of the most plausible, yet still creepy stories out there. Here is a my summary of the story.

A young child with Mononucleosis was forced to stay in their current house for more than 3 weeks, and his parents gave him some in-door activities/possessions to help pass the time before they had to leave and move to a new house. During that time, he developed an "imaginary friend". This "imaginary friend" looked kind of like a Furby and had a widemouth grin. His name, like the title suggests, was Mr. Widemouth. His personality was somewhat similar to Johan Liebert, as Mr. Widemouth would continuously try to get the boy to do dangerous things, like juggling knives, or jumping off the second story of the house. One day, Mr. Widemouth told the child about this location that many other children have visited after meeting Mr. Widemouth and that the boy should come visit this place one day. The child and his family left the house, and moved to a new one. He never saw Mr. Widemouth ...more

It's decently scary (freaked my 11-year-old brother out).
But more than scary it's the best-written creepypasta ever.

A Cool Creepypasta The Story Is Fantastic

Very good read.
