Top Ten Scariest Things Ever

The Top Ten
1 Being Buried Alive

You are stuck 6 feet under the ground. No one would hear your screams. The only thing you see is darkness. You can't move because of the tiny space and you get eaten by parasites that made a way there as you start dying of hunger, thirst, and loss of air. You start feeling hopeless, as there is nothing to do but just wait to die in a slow, painful way. Terrifying, right?

I am super afraid of fire; I can't even cook. One time my grandma took me to a cooking class, I tried to put something in the pan, and I was splattered by hot liquid. It was horrible, I've got random scars on my arms and legs... fire.

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...

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!

2 Fear

Fear is scary and is what makes us afraid. It is the seedling of panic and sets terror into the body. It is the father of phobias and the mother of horror. It is fear. - Anna

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

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.

You could compare it to Hatchet (Gary Paulsen.) when the plane passed him by and he lost all hope. I would be terrified. The last few days would be worst. You could even go insane with thirst. Of course, knowing death would come soon would be one of the largest awful parts. Spiralling further down, getting depressed, watching waves lap in an endless pattern and losing all hope...one of my worst nightmares.

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

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).

Eternal torture. The worst part about it is probably knowing that you had a choice. You were bad, so it was completely your fault that you're there.

I don't believe in Hell.
If there is an afterlife in anything, there wont be any punishment and people suffer more than on earth.
More likely to be reincarnation or ghosts.
This sounds really stupid but if ghosts exist maybe the reason why no one has seen them is because it's the souls of humans and it's the ghosts of people in government that passed away (they threw Adolf Hitler into a cave) and have some laws you cannot haunt someone's house.

Sure thers bad people in the world but NO ONE deserves to feel the pain of fire for the rest of your life-wait...

hehe get it?


how can you be in HELL for the rest of your life if your already in hell 0~0

5 Drowning

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.

Scientifically, a lack of oxygen to the blood stream is the scariest thing (look up vsauce) being able to scare people even when lacking an amygdala, and drowning is usually the most common relative to this.

You are stuck underwater, unable to breathe without people noticing your screams (because it's almost impossible to spot a drowning person) even if you are a good swimmer, you can still drown, so be careful when you're around water.

One of the scariest and most painful ways to die. You stop breathing and don’t hear anything anymore. God, this is a scary way to imagine to die

6 The Unknown

I think we are afraid of UFOs because we do call them Unidentified Flying Objects. That UFO could be filled with killer aliens that want to take our planet and blow it up.

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.

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.

I remember the first time I saw hellraiser... and they had this Lemarchand's box... I mean the overall movie ain't that scary... but if I was solving a puzzle or being in a strange spooky forest not knowing what to expect that may or may not pop out... man that's seriously spooky...

7 Death

Like the guy below me, I'm scared of the unknown (and my comment was partly to comfort myself.) I also just can't comprehend living forever -in either paradise or torment.

I'm scared of the unknown. People say we get reborn and that is what scares me the most. If I get reborn, then will I ever remember my family or anything from the life I'm in now in Heaven? Or will I just remember everything from the new life?

So that’s why live your life to the greatest! Even if it’s not long, love, play. Be remembered. Oh and if you come by a red haired boy playing pranks say hello to Fred Weasley for me!

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.

8 Clowns

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.

This particular clown is the reason I hate them. I'm not "afraid" of clowns, (or at least ANYMORE. When I was little they freaked me out more than Satan.) but, they do make me sweat a lot. And I think I'm still somewhat traumatized by Pennywise.

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!

The lights are out and you're slipping between consciousness and resting and suddenly, out the doorway, you see a 6'7 clown walking in the hallway and makes a sprint towards your room.

9 Lost In Space

theres no way to be saved...your all alone and floating in space...theres no chance of surviving...I would open my face shield and die fast...

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 Burning Alive

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.

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

I honestly can't believe this isn't number one. Can you imagine the pain? Absolutely horrific

Burning alive will be the worst of the worst for be but I think...I don't like this at all...

The Newcomers

? Holding a Knife

The fear of holding a knife (perhaps to cut a cake) and losing control of your body (like someone else is controlling it) and stabbing someone.

? Being in the Closet

I summoned a demon in it once

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.

Pffft. You have Slenderman. Tall guy. Nice suit. No face. Pretty skinny. Someone tells you he's an URBAN LEGEND. Legend. Legend. So he's not real. That it sort of a shame, 'cause I like him. (Don't downvote me unless you want me to hate you! *)

-ThePinkieMaster

*That'll be forever, of course

12 Plane Crashes

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.

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.

This is literally my worst fear. If I survive, losing my family and my possessions. Also, a water landing on the ocean. I'll take the bus, thanks.

Actually 95% of plane crash victims survive due to most happening right after takeoff or right before landing. But if it explodes 30,000 ft in the air there is no survival.

13 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.

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!

14 Nuclear Warfare/Fallout

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.

Seriously, we could all blow up or melt or something like that at any second! by the way, creepypastas aren't scary, they are awesome.

15 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

Don't get me started with nightmares. I have depression and anxiety, so my nightmares are amplified by 1000. Therefore, I get very little sleep.

The only dreams I could remember lately were nightmares. Don’t even care if it inspires people, it’s killing my mind. Screw nightmares to an extent. This is what real life is influencing. My mind is so out of control, it’s creating nightmares

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...

16 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 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?

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 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!

It's one of those weird things that are both scary yet I seem to have weird fantasies about, you know, dirty Jeff the Killer dream, after he stbbed me I was this ghost, and then I woke up.

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

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

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

It's hilarious when you see "Jeff the Killer in a nutshell" before reading the actual thing.

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.

Yeah really one time I saw a big snake in my mades room I and plus it's made babies in there and I saw two small babies from her was so freaked out it was in my house because in front of my house I have a big forest and I saw the snakes it's just so big and I was so freaked out and plus she made more babies of a kind of her and I saw one baby she had I don't know if she made more than one baby that is so crazy!

Snakes 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

I love Australia, it is the best country in the world, the most thing I hate is these things! Snakes are disgusting

I'm an Aussie, never seen a taipan. Last time I saw a snake was a harmless TAME one 4-5 years ago.

19 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.

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.

I live in Minnesota, and we get a lot of thunderstorms around here. And I'm always afraid that they'll lead to a tornado

They're only scary at night, if they're moving fast, or if they're huge. Otherwise, I am cool with em.

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.

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

Spongiform encephalopathy, yersinia pestis, wet and dry necrosis and gangrene, yellow fever, malaria, ebola, marburg virus, polio, so many diseases and pathogens, and (not many) misfolded prnp proteins.

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.

21 Pop Ups

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.

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

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.

My brother all ways watch tele tubies and one of the episode was so scary there was a baby at he sun and a house wich had old lady who was so fat and creepy looking I was so scared that I turned it of

23 Naked People

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

I don't want to see a man naked because it is gross

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

Not scary. Just really, really gross.

24 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*

25 Being Attacked

If anyone innocent were being attacked I would first punch/kick the attacker in the knee and then kick them in the... well you know what I mean and then last I would push them away

Before you die all you feel is pain

I never wanted to be attacked

No nutshots please thank you.
