Top Ten Scariest Things Ever

The Top Ten
1 Being Buried Alive

Picture this: You wake up, you try to sit up, but bang you head, confused, you open your eyes and look around, except there's not much to see...you're stuck in a coffin. You realize the truth: you've been buried alive. You try to scream for help, until you scream so much your throught hurts. you reach in your pockets, hoping to find your cell phone, but nothings there. It's hopeless. You're trapped...six feet underground in a tiny coffin...no food...no water...no way out...you're doomed to slowly die...alone and scared.

I wouldn't have the guts to do this. It would be really uncomfortable, as you can't stand up, it would be claustrophobic, you have a risk to suffocate, and, if you're MrBeast, you constantly have your friends annoying you to hell.

I automatically thought of PLL and it just..like...IMAGINE...

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)

What about your house burning on fire? I'm NOT saying this is the scariest thing, but it is the scariest thing that ever happened to me. It happened to me in Feb of 2018. A house two doors down from me was on fire (I live in a townhouse, so all the houses are connected), and it spread to the house right next door, and then my roof was smoking. But my house didn't go on fire, but I was very scared because I thought my house might burn down. I hadn't gotten my diary or my books or my clothes...

2 Fear

You have nothing to fear but fear itself- Franklin D. Roosevelt.
I swear I fear fearing things more than the thing itself. I have to be strong for my 11 little siblings showing fear or being fearful isn't an option.

I fear being sick or hurt and no accss to healthcare! And also getting healthcare from the state and loseing all my saveings.. My home.. My 401k.. To pay back that FREE healthcare!.. Read your free healthcare fine print! We are not in Europe! They can take your things! You wont be giveing your house to your kids!... It's the states house now!.. Do you see why we need to change the way we do healthcare in America! Do you want to end up liveing from your car!?.. Free healthcare is NOT FREE! Read the contracts! I bet Ted Cruz wont bring this up! He got his ass set for life! What about you teabaggers? Poor.. White.. Stupud.. I bet you on free? Healthcare?

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.

Fear is an indicator, that something may be wrong! My fear is getting sick, and no access to healthcare! This is real, people die, ir could be you soon? See to it we all have healthcare, vote for Democrats, you could be next.

3 Being Stranded in the Open Ocean

Imagine this: You're on a raft, you look around, and you see nothing but water... no land in sight. You have no idea what could be under it. there could just be nothing, or you could be in shark-infested waters, but either way, unless you're lucky enough to have some clean water and food on board, your only source is the ocean. But the ocean water is too salty to drink, and, even if you have a school of fish surrounding you, how would you get some for you to eat, unless you have a spear, or some fishing tackle?
Scary, right?

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.

As someone with Thalassophobia, being in the ocean is my biggest fear. Yes, JB singing is terrifying, but you could actually DIE in the ocean and people have such bad fears of it that they can't take baths, ever. (I used to take baths, but now I only take showers) The ocean can only be seen so far, the rest is just pitch black. You can drown, you can get hypothermia, you can be killed by an sea creature, you can starve, you have so many possibilities of dying. The ocean is a scary place.

I'm currently on a small raft, floating in the open ocean. My supplies have declined greatly since I took that cruise, and I'm only stuck with my friend. He's been hogging food and stuff, so all I have is my laptop, some cans of beans and a small can of pop. Help me. I don't know coordinates, as I am using a program that lets me use the internet without WiFi. Help. Just help. Please.

4 Hell

How is this not no.1? Picture this. You open your eyes. Your in a wet but hot, scorchingly humid room. Except it isn't a room. Jagged rocks and fiery burning wood surrounds you. Sweat is running down your face like a waterfall. You hear a voice. It's whispering something to you but you can't quite hear it. Suddenly it screams at you unsettlingly before laughing. The devil is among you. "Welcome Sinner" He says manically.

Would that not be terrifying? Also in hell, You have to experience your GREATEST FEAR, everyday. That beats out everything else because even if your not afraid of hell, You'd be experiencing your actual greatest fear everyday for all of eternity. That's FOREVER. Hell is the scariest no question. Whoever voted slender man over Hell is an idiot.

People always think you go to Hell because you were a bad person, and that you can go to Heaven by JUST being a Christian or being a good person. But that's not true. You go to Hell because you did not accept Jesus as your savior. He dies on the cross for you but you just couldn't accept him. So even if you get save as a kid but become an atheist as an adult, you will still go to Heaven because you only get saved once. But the thing is, you won't be in the bride of Christ. So either get saved or spend the eternity in Hell. Its your choice...

I'm not scared of hell, why? I'm saved by Jesus Christ. by the way you don't go to hell because you were 'bad' we are all bad, you go to hell knowing you had a choice to accept God, but you never, and lived your life ignoring HIm, he paved a way countless times, but you still denied. So why blame God for you going to hell when you really sent yourself there.

If Christians go to heaven, then I probably go to heaven. If you want to go to Heaven, you should trust Jesus (That is what I think).

5 The Unknown

This is actually the only thing I hate about the ocean! In my made up story entitled "Stranded", I drowned (almost died) and claiming I'll be with my friends in the afterlife (they're still alive, I just didn't know). Thankfully, I was saved! I hate drowning, but other than that flaw, I love the ocean!

I hate that, I always have these nightmares where it is pitch black and then out of nowhere I get attacked, then I wake up paralyzed.

I hate not knowing. I absolutely HATE it. SO Elsa sing your little song "Into the Unknown", but I will not jump into the unknown with you.

Amanda Joy Deridder is the scariest thing forever, the worst thing forever, and the most painful thing forever. Amanda Joy Deridder is unknown forever and not real forever. We are saved by God from Amanda Joy Deridder. All things forever and 3 +s add bonus are complete forever. All things forever and 3 +s add bonus are complete forever. All things forever and 3 +s add bonus are complete forever.

6 Burning Alive

I get burned all the time with matches and stuff, and just that I can feel going through my body, but being burned alive is a million times worse.

I agree... not only are you in a total state of, "fight or flight", you cannot flee nor can you fight being burned alive. It's not a quick death either. Full of sheer panic, in fight or flight mode, inhaling burning fire, seering pain, body parts being charred from the flames. It's horrifically painful, scary, you're filled with fear, in a state of fight or flight but cannot do either, you are breathing in flames, you are in absolute agony until you die... It is not a fast death either.

Ahhh! I'm burning!
I've dreamed about this before. Feeling the pain, but not having the power to stop it. Or being scared by it and unable to go back to your old body. It's scary.

Burning alive is the most agonizing death you could possibly experience. Surprisingly this is not the one because of the fact that mostly people's main fear is death

7 Death

Probably the scariest part about death is not knowing what happens afterward, is god real? Are atheists right? Is Buddhism the correct religion? What about polytheism? I'm a Christian, I'm just a little skeptical.

Death is scary. It's a jump into the unknown. It can be painful or painless. Bur you will away fear the day death knock upon your front door.

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.

This should be at the top. You wouldn't be scared of anything if you're not scared of death. And also I'm not scared of death, I'm just scared of what will happen AFTER it. You won't be able to see, feel, hear, know, smell or anything. You'd just be nothing in the world.

8 Drowning

My cousin almost drowned me once, he pushed me in the water then pulled me out, kind of like a crocodile, and then like I was stunned and I started drowning, but I snapped out of it, I barely reached the top fast enough.

This is actually the only thing I hate about the ocean! In my made up story entitled "Stranded", I drowned (almost died) and claiming I'll be with my friends in the afterlife (they're still alive, I just didn't know). Thankfully, I was saved! I hate drowning, but other than that flaw, I love the ocean!

I love the ocean and swimming, bu I absolutely hate drowning. I drowned once before and after some therapy got over it, but I have vivid memories off when I was ready to let got. I swear if I drown one more time I will have ptsd.

Basically you hold your breath so long that you feel like you are burning, and it is very painful, and then eventually you breathe. You then hallucinate and feel peaceful, and then you either die or are severely injured.

9 Lost In Space

I watch a movie about this once in 8th grade. Ahh, the good old days. Anyway, the thought of running out of oxygen and being unable to move yourself. The chance of being abducted or even freezing to death from the lack of heat. OMG. I cannot.

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.

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.

My dream one day is to become a NASA astronaut (and an author) and go into space. But being stranded in space would absolutley, hands down, frighten me to death. I would eventually just die after a while because of space conditions and lack of nessesary survival tools.

10 Clowns

Am I the one of the few people that did not have nightmares or the fear of clowns after watching Steven kings it, the remake and chapter 2

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.

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'm not scared of clowns all because they're very entertaining and fun to watch.
But the only terrifying parts about the clowns are make up.
Not all clowns are scary even without make up but only Pennywise can solve this problem.

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

Pfft, yall ain't seen anything. Slenderman probably ain't real since it was made for a creepypasta but don't mess with the occult, there is freaky stuff out there. Also, I used to stay in the neighborhood woods a lot as a kid, same with some others, and we'd see and hear freaky stuff over the span of a few years. And, I used to be a hobo because I was poor asf and lived on a bike with a tarp and a tub of food and water. Thank God I don't do that anymore.

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 am not kidding, once I was in the woods alone at night, and it is more terrifying than being in an abandoned hospital! Seriously, being alone in woods at night whether you know about slendy or not is one of the scariest places to be.

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.

12 Zombies

I swear if zombies come I will be the first to kill and go crazy. It is in my nature. I would literally start massacring people and zombies alike.

Actually the Zombie apocalypse could happen, just mix rabies with some kind of other horrible disease and BAM you have a zombie. The rabies would represent the behavioral and muscle deficiency in your body, then add that other disease would be the rest. However considering the world we live in now, the zombie apocalypse wouldn't be the thing to end the world. The only problem would probably be actually getting the vaccine to everyone that needs it.

It would be scarier if the zombies were like to ones from Resident Evil were they are really hard to kill, or if the were really fast like the ones in World War Z, but the zombies from The Walking Dead wouldn't be as bad, but still would be extremely scary since there would be so many...

This should be #1, just the feeling of being ripped open piece by piece, bit by bit it would be a very slow but painful death you might as well just shoot yourself in the head, I would if I got bit, or before that! Well that's why I think this should be number one on this list!

13 Plane Crashes

I always wanted to fly as a little child, now due to the number of plane crashes viewed on TV and in the news, I think I changed my mind.

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.

I was watching,"Why Planes Crash" on the Weather Channel and that horrified me. I live in Michagan and there was a GIANT thunderstorm. I heard a plane flying and I totally freaked out. But thank God it didn't crash.
P.S. it happened at night.

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.

14 Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

This is why I wanted to commit suicide so many times. DT was a stupid president. I was not going to die by his stupidity, so I vowed the moment missiles went off I would go off to.

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.

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

15 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".

I am still scared of him. I know he is not real, but that demonic face looks like every single millimeter was perfectly designed to strike fear into one's heart. I first saw the picture when I was a kid. I saw it for a split second, and I had trouble sleeping for almost a year. Not even joking

Jeff the Killer is funny looking, but creepy looking at the same time. The reason I can't see his nose is the makeup, right?

I searched him up really quick and I immediately got scared. I am never searching him up EVER AGAIN!

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

16 Nightmares

Has anyone else had that moment when you're having a horrible nightmare and you're trying desperately to wake up but you can't?

What's scary is that people can actually die from nightmares. It's triggered by a mysterious condition called SUNDS, Sudden Unexpected Nocturnal Death Syndrome. It makes your heart burn out over one, then you die because of a heart attack. No, I'm not taking this out of 1000 Ways To Die.

I once had a dream where I was walking down a hallway..it just went on, continued, didn't stop. Then all of a sudden I just started falling. And then, demons and stuff like that started To take over me, you get the dream idea.

My dream was that I was in my living room watching T.V. and I heard a doorbell when I open the door there was a salesman I closed the door on on him. After that I heard as scream of anger... A few hours passed and I was getting ready to go to bed; when I heard groans from the front door. Whoever groaned broke the front door and was heading up to get me! I grabbed a picture of Krishna but then it was too late!
I then woke up and realized it was a dream...

17 Creepypasta

Oh my, these things scare the crap out of me! I'm too scared to even go on the website! There are these horrifying pictures *cough* JEFF THE KILLER *cough* and some of them can give give you some pretty bad insomnia or even make you pee yourself. *cough* JEFF *cough* Some Creepypastas have scarier stories than pictures, like Slenderman, or their pictures are WAY more scary than the stories, and sometimes a Creepypasta might be scary with the picture and the story, like Jeff the Killer *shivers*. Anyways, I recommend that you stay away from the website unless you have guts...

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 it's 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 once read one about a virus the night I got a virus on my computer, and I didn't realise it wasnt real, so I got terrified and couldn't sleep all night, and then the next day I had an exam so I was in a big mess!

Yea that's creepy and scary * shudder * but I'm one of those people that can handle it. Imagine if they are real then that will be really creepy so look up on this list called creepypastas are real.

18 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 aren't really scary unless your in a situation where your face to face with a poisonous snake that is threatened by you and you missed their warning sign. As far as visually scary I would say spiders are more creepy.
There very cool especially the many non-poisonous kinds

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 great. Ever picked up a rattler? Copperheads are easier to handle though.
*sees people staring*
What? It's a country person thing. Haha

I think snakes are scary for 3 reasons just like somebody said it w
Ould hurt being squeezed or bit and being poisoned would be scary.

19 Tornadoes

My grandma's vacation home was demolished by one of these things back in 2003. She learned to never rent a vacation home in the middle of tornado alley.

I'm always looking at the skies on stormy days. But luckily, there's mountains in Idaho, and since it's in the West, tornadoes are highly unlikely.

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.

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.

20 Disease

Bad, the deadliest outbreak/pandemic of any disease was the black death(caused by plague) which killed 42% of the entire human population, 60% of Europe, 50% of Asia, 30% of Africa, 75% of France, 60% of England, and 75% of Italy plague takes 3 forms, septicemic, pneumonic and bubonic, bubonic you have a 70% chance of dying, if you get treatment in the first 24 hours the death rate lowers to 15%, pneumonic and septicemic both have a 100% death rate, and 40% if you get treatment in the first 24 hours, the pneumonic plague is airborne.

Diseases are probably the scariest things in the world. Some can't be cured, even with today's modern medicine. Plus, you'd be getting killed (and it's a very slow and painful death) by something you can't see. I am afraid of death, but death from a deadly virus is even worse.

Coronavirus,Cancer,Black death, Cholera, Smallpox, Spanish flu, and more! Disease is the one that killed millions of people in history, it affects people's bodies and keep them from functioning normally

Want to have nightmares? Just look up prion diseases, or not.

21 Pop Ups

A cheap way to scare people and annoying as hell. Some people are easily scared and therefore really fear these(some even get heart attacks). But the worst WORST part are the commenters that say how wimply and pathetic we are for being scared of these. Douches

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

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

They are not only scary. They are also EASY to do! Just have something scary pop out.

22 Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes. It is owned by Canadian Studio WildBrain, which is the largest independent Children's and Adolescent's Film Studio

I have no idea why but I think teletubbies are psychotic. Mainly because for some reason when I was little watched that show all the time, but when I try to remember what it was about I can't remember anything, but I do kinda remember that I didn't exactly like it more than I was mesmerized... Then one day my baby cousin (around 3 years old at the time) came over and she was watching Teletubbies and I had to watch her. I noticed that unlike when she was watching shows like Dora she wasn't giggling or even smiling, throughout the whole thing she just stared at the screen, also for some reason when they show the teletubbies looking at you I almost feel like that's what the purple one was doing, looking at me. It was creepy man.

I remember this magic event that scared me when I was little, does anyone remember it? If you do that's great but if you don't look it up on youtube, just type in teletubbies magic event magic house. It starts off with all four teletubbies sitting on the grass in a very far distance ( Erm, did you know? They were playing it safe! Duh! ) The camera cut to the sky with a grass ground below it, then four windows faded in and then a pink house with a red door with the number 4 on it faded in afterwards, then a shadow of a person from the waist up moving and speaking gibberish, at the bottom left window, the curtains opened to reveal a creepy puppet with red-ish lips, wearing blue and a blue tam o shanter hat with a red pom pom on top, he then sang a song in gibberish while the camera slowly zoomed in on him. I think they changed the puppet to a less scary one because they probably realised it was scaring the poor kids.

Oh, yeah. They look all cute and funny if you're 3 or younger. To anyone else, they're creepy alien people with television screens implanted on their chests. What's scarier- Hell or Teletubbies? Teletubbies.

Thank god these were made after coloured television because in black and white they would be even scarier than they are now!

23 Being Attacked

As a new young adult, I fear getting hurt by someone mean.

This seems scary

24 Naked People

Nudity is natural. I mean, I agree with that other guy. Naked fat people would be scary.

I'm not scared of nudity, but I don't like it.

Not scary. Just really, really gross.

Come on, guys. This isn't scary!

25 Insects

Woah, I had a nightmare once about this! They may be harmless (some of them) but they look so creepy and disgusting! I'm afraid to even walk into the shower, and its because of these things! Some Insects are very annoying and bite for no reason too

I actually have insectophobia induced by trauma. Every time I see a butterfly (going to the zoo is a nightmare! ) my mom says "Big Baby! " and slaps me. Wait! This reminds me of something.

Eustace: Stupid dog! *puts on mask* OOGABOOGABOOGA!

Courage: *eats camera*
