Top Ten Scariest Things Ever

The Top Ten

1 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

Now even people without a fear of close spaces would be scared as hell to find themselves buried alive in a coffin. Like that would straight up suck. Could you imagine it, nowhere to move and your running out of oxygen and your dehydrating and starving while being very uncomfortable all at once, just an absolute nightmare. My second fear would be the ocean but at least you could have a quick death but still would be horrifying!

I automatically thought of PLL and it

I was under the ground the dirt coming into my lungs and mouth every time I breathed or soreness. Breathing was hard and my lungs felt tired. I knew if I’d close my eyes there was a possibility of never opening them again. I didn’t even know how deep I was under ground. I felt people walking over me and I was angry they couldn’t hear me. Terrified that I would die. Sad that my family would never knew where I’d gone, and I was isolated. No one could save me I knew that now. There was no light except for the glint of the dirt. If I died I knew I would never be found. I lifted up a hand but no one grabbed it. I inhaled a deep breath nknksing the pain would go away fastest if I let myself go. So I did

(That’s from the book I'm making called...The unknown burial on Jackson Robert)

2 Fear

"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!

3 Being 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

This would certainly not be a good thing. - saturatedsunrise

4 Justin 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.

You think this is bad? Trust me, there are much more horrifying things out there. - LarryLarrington

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.

5 Hell

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

Okay, yeah.

6 Lost 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.

You would just float around space and you couldn't even do anything. You would just float around waiting for your oxygen to run out and then die from suffocation. Really scary.

This is why I don’t want to be an astronaut. - saturatedsunrise

7 Drowning

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 very dreadful situation very scary to experience - Ananya

I love swimming and going to waterparks, but I am afraid of drowning. - saturatedsunrise

8 Zombies

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

Zombies are the scariest thing since zombies.

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.

I don’t think they exist. - saturatedsunrise

9 The Unknown

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

Ghosts are totally real, I have seen one once aspiration once and orbs energy, black, clear, greenI should yellow, it happens to a hobby of mine, and I'm not scared one bit if I saw one again, they are, just earth bound spirits that are in limbo, lost after murder or suicide and trying to communicate, and every one gets scared, there not scary, they used to be like us, but now there on another plane.

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

10 Plane Crashes

Once I was going to a holiday for Australia and when we flew thunder struck and it got hit it was so scary and there we got a boat and there was this huge wave and we the wave just hit us and another plane came and flew us to Australia now I never go to that airlines anymore

That is scary. I was on a plane going to Wyoming, and it almost crashed. Some scary stuff. This is why I am afraid of airplanes now - KingSlayer93316

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

The good news is that 95% of people in a crash will survive, and you will most likely be unconscious due to the lack of pressure in the cabin.

I have a huge fear of planes, because of plane crashes. There’s also a conspiracy theory that if there is a crash, the airlines want you to die, because if people survive, they can file something and the airline will usually have to give them money. Since most airlines have you sit in a position with your head down, that’s not safe, because your head would go right into the chair and break your neck. That’s not very good. - saturatedsunrise

The Newcomers

? Overpopulation

In that case...Thanos will have to snap his fingers..

I don’t like the idea of this, because then, we would run out of food and water, and there would be so many people without the resources they need to survive. - saturatedsunrise

? Needles

Needles are scary - Manlypants


The Contenders

11 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

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

Snakes are so cute, yet strangely scary!

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!

One bit my dog. - saturatedsunrise

12 Clowns

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!

If you hate serial killers too, you'd hate to see John Wayne Gacy. - LarryLarrington

I hate clowns. They are some of the creepiest things that ever exist. All they do is preform at a circus, do things that are "funny," and have scarier (but cooler) versions of them kill people in horror movies. I used to like them. I'm not scared of them, but they are just stupid, and creepy. At a soccer game, there was a big line for a clown painting faces, and this one little girl was crying, because she might have been scared of the clown. I decided to go there to get a rainbow tiger face. Here's one thing: Seeing a clown's face close up won't be a pleasant experience.

I think we all agree that clowns do not need any explanation for being scary and should be first place in this list.

Clowns r so scary I would faint if I saw one😖.Think about KILLER CLOWNS 🤡!

13 Burning 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

This is probably one of the worst ways to die, because you can burn for 7 hours. - saturatedsunrise

14 Camping 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.

15 Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

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

G=God, we're always just a few steps away from armageddon. Think about it. We'd destroy ourselves and only have ourselves to blame for it. At any moment, all of this could be over because of some people arguing over who gets the most resources.

Nuclear war would result in everyone dying. No winning everyone would lose thousands maybe millions of people.

Its barbaric and it cannot happen.

16 Nightmares

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

Once I had a nightmare where I met a handsome boy and went to his house suddenly a clown appears with other clowns so we just ran and they nearly broke the door and the boy got out of the room and fighter with the clown but the boy was DEAD and the clown came and I ran outside and everybody was dead even my parents and babies every one and there was a dead end and I was killed but I woke up it was so scary

I don't know why, but I had one nightmare about the crab from a Disney Junior show, Jungle Junction that wanted to pinch me in the butt. It happened in kindergarten, so don't even think about laughing at me.

I never really have “bad” dreams, I usually have none, or good ones. - saturatedsunrise

17 Creepypasta

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?

Slender never scared me. Jeff was freaky though. The Jeff The Killer fangirls are more scary than Slender and Jeff combined though.

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!

I am not scared of spaghetti!

18 Jeff the Killer 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 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! - cosmo

HEY! Jeff is cool! Leave him alone

EDIT: Who put than anime-like Jeff as the picture? I don't like it. Original Jeff is better - KingSlayer93316

Squidward's Suicide is worse than he is, because that episode shows a lot of realistic corpses - Gehenna

19 Slender Man

My head cannon is that slender only kills his pathetic fangirls but that's just me.

He just wants to hang out that's all, but with the screaming children he can never go anywhere!

He is fake you dummies

Once I was playing Slender: Bones of Children and when the jumpscare came up I dropped my phone. The volume wasn't even all the way up!

20 Elf 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.

Put it on your porch, hugging a pumpkin, with a flashlight under its face - kaitlynrad11

Its always watching you...

I think this thing is creepy, one of my classmates that I'm sort of friends with said the Elf on the Shelf got a knife and wanted to kill him. I don't think that's true, I don't think this can come to life. I think it just convinces kids to be good.

This thing scares the crap outta me. It looks like a little troll that stalks you while you sleep - KingSlayer93316

21 Pop Ups

One of the scariest things since darkness. Most people get scared $&@: less from these loud, sudden blast of fear.

Remember the car commercial? If you know what I'm talking about, you survived a heart attack

These things need to die and be forgotten about forever. Besides people are getting sick of them anyway.

22 Being 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

That would be such a nightmare! I would rather rot in a dumpster that will be dumped into a lake filled with steaming lava, and get eaten by lava proof sharks that are toxic, and radio-active than be stranded on an island with Justin Bieber!

I'd eat him - AnnieCallie

23 Death

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...

Pardon me but how did Colton make it up? It even said that "Jesus has markers" when the kid had never HEARD of or even seen a crucifix. So how did he know what they were? - RedTheGremlin

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

I want to die - AnnieCallie

24 Tornadoes

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.

I have a fear of those. One time, we had a tornado watch where I live and I grabbed everything and ran downstairs. Luckily, there was no tornado by us.

This is one of my biggest fears. - saturatedsunrise

I wanted to vote for Insects in general, but I couldn't find it. I guess I'll have to vote for the scariest insect of all.

One time, when I was little, I was petting a bee and it stung me on the hand and my hand had big brown spots all over it.

I'm kind of scared

Maybe a little scary because it has a stinger, but look at its face. It's so adorable :3 - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

If you gave me a gun and put me in a room full of rapists, I would become a mass murderer within 5 seconds.

Guns are not scary stupid people with guns are scary because they will probably shoot you

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!
