Halloween might be over but there is always time to have some scary fun. There is a lot of great stuff on the internet. That said, there is also a lot of creepy, weird and downright strange stuff on the internet too. Many people have been scouting the web for funny, entertaining and even scary things to satisfy their online browsing addiction.
The internet has become a resource hub for almost anything nowadays including creepy stuff such as paranormal, ghosts, aliens etc. You can scare yourself silly just by reading the content or watching videos without personally going through the ordeal.
Here is a list of some of the scariest and nastiest online materials that you will find on the internet today.
Be warned: Reader discretion is strongly advised.
Scary, Nasty Websites, Games and Resources
Creepy Pasta is one of the most well-known spook sites on the internet. The content includes stories of the paranormal, zombie apocalypse situations, tales from the grave and more. The site is great for people to post and share their own stories, which is perfect for newly updated content on a regular basis. The one thing that can diminish the scariness of Creepy Pasta is the amount of ads that are on the site. If you have a bunch of cute pictures of kittens saved in your cookies on your browser, you’ll be sure to have those images show up once you access the site; which completely takes away from the fear that can come from Creepy Pasta.
Shock Till You Drop
Shock Till You Drop is a great site for news, information and reviews on scary information. The highlight of the website includes the detailed information that they have on independent and mainstream movies that will soon be released. Another reason that this site is enjoyable is because it actually has a spooky background too, with chains, electic lights and blood splatters. Overall, this website is knowledgeable and well developed.
It’s great to come across a website as well done as The Outbreak. Once you enter this site, you’ll come across an interactive movie where you get to choose the path that you take. The choices you make could result in gruesome and gory cut-scenes, or even an all out death of the character. These interactive game/movies are becoming more popular on the web, and The Outbreak does a great job of doing one for the horror genre.
Another interactive game, The House is just as fun as The Outbreak. However, while The Outbreak has more cinematic elements to the game, where you simply decide on the route to take, The House is actually a game that the user has more control over. It is important to find clues and be aware of your surroundings in this thriller game.
The House 2
The House 2 is a sequel to the scary game above. The scare and spook element has been raised with the advancement of sound and random pictures that pop up throughout the game. It’s quite impressive that two of the most scary websites on the net have come from the same name and include the same theme. But apparently there is something overly spooky and creepy about dead families to keep people interested and coming back for more.
Purgatorium is a great game because it isn’t very long. Instead, its quick, simply and extremely scary. The plot sets you up in a room with a baby carriage, and you must find clues that will help you out of the room. Along the way you find hints to the story of what happened in this house.
Yet another point and click game, Exmortis is certainly anything but ordinary. It is considered by some as the scariest game on the web. The plot begins as you approach a lonely home on a hill in the woods. Once inside, you must put together clues that will help you survive. There are plenty of spooky and unpredictable things that pop up throughout your time in the house.
The Cell is the story of a prisoner who wakes up with no recollection of who he is or where he is at. Instead, he continues getting phone calls that tell him to get out, with hints as to how to do so. The voice on the other end of the phone is what will really keep you up at night and have you scared each time you answer your personal phone.
Anneliese Michel Exorcism
You won’t see a whole lot in regards to design or graphics on this link; after all, it’s just a YouTube account. But if you want to hear some truly disturbing and creepy audio, this is the place to go. The audio clip is of the exorcism of Anneliese Michel as it was happening. The photos that go with it add to the horror factor of the content. After just 20-seconds you may scroll your mouse to the back button on your browser, as the material is truly horrifying.
The Jonestown Death Tape
If you could handle, or maybe even enjoyed, the audio recording of the Anneliese Michel exorcism, here is another audio clip for you. Again, the website isn’t anything special, as it is a government hosted site. But the audio is of Jim Jones and The Peoples Temple Cult, as over 900 people take part in a mass suicide. This audio may be one of the hardest on this list to listen to, as you can hear women, children and babies screaming during the process. But if you want to learn how to make your website or internet content scary, you can learn a few things from this audio clip.
If you are one who needs to see and hear things to be spooked by a story, this YouTube account is a great resource. This series follows haunted stories, from aliens to ghosts, and explores some of the spookiest places you’ll ever find. If you are making your own video content, you can get some great pointers from Marble Hornets and how they present their videos on their YouTube Channel.
After you recover from watching the previously mentioned video, head over to Nails. It’s a great mix of horror, fun and entertainment all in one. You can spend a few minutes playing with the interactive characters; and also get some ideas on how to add interactive media to your own spooky webpage.
One of the most anticipated horror films of 2013 was The Conjuring. This movie is based on real events, which adds to the horror effect. But before watching the movie, head to the website to get a glimpse of what’s in store for you.
99 Rooms is another point and click game where you must escape before it’s too late. In case the name didn’t give it away, there are 99 rooms that you must escape, making it a large and detailed game. The detail and spook factor that goes into this game was obviously well thought out and makes for one of the best games on the internet.
The Well is an interactive, multi-level game where players will gather stones as they navigate throughout a home in attempts to exit. Each time you complete a part of the game, you will earn a new stone and at the end, you will be able to watch the entire story unfold. You are sure to get attached to one of the four characters in this game, but whether or not they’ll make it to the end is for you to play and find out.
The Dionaea House
The content of this site isn’t overwhelmingly scary like some of these other sites (ie. no popup pictures or black backgrounds burning with fire and brimstone). But the more you read the story, the more entertained and entranced you become. Considering it’s a true story puts your nerves on edge just a bit more.
This website is dedicated to a Japanese city as it remains today. What was once a popular industrial area, is now abandoned and desolate. You can see living quarters, schools, a once thriving dock and more, as it hasn’t been touched in years. Best yet, the site uses Google Maps to take you through this journey.
Scary And Fun
Scary and Fun is an entertaining enough site that you can go to late at night and spook yourself out of being tired. But at the same time, the site also has some great content that you could send to your mother-in-law and it wouldn’t make her rescind your invitation to upcoming family events. Overall, the content is quite moderate and enjoyable for people of all ages and scare-levels. Although, the most scary part of the website is the format, which makes you open up a new window every time you click on something. Why cant it be as simple as opening in the same tab? If you are making a spooky site, please don’t have each link open in new tabs!
News Of The Future
Those that come across News Of The Future will probably find it to be nothing more than a site full of paranoia and propaganda. But the more you read into it, the more realistic some of the content seems. The majority of the information presented on the site is based off of how society will be in the next 20-years if society keeps burning through natural resources, inciting religious terrorist attacks, making advancements in technology and science and much more. If only News Of The Future had tomorrow’s lottery tickets, it’d probably be one of the most popular sites on the internet!
This site brings you news and updates on all things terrifying: horror trailers, shorts and clips. If horror is your thing, look no further! With over 3,400 videos, you can be terrified to your heart’s delight.
There you have it, some of the most horrifying, creepy, spooky online materials on the internet. Congratulations if you made it through all of them, as it certainly isn’t for the feint of heart. However, now that you have finished, you can ask yourself how much of this is real? How much is fake? What is it about this type of content that makes users come back for more each day? Whatever it is, it’s obviously entertaining to some. And if you are creating your own spooky website, you can use some of the content ideas here to make sure that you give your audience the fright-factor they are looking for.
