I'm making a definitive /x/-approved list of the top 10 creepypastas.
Contestants will be decided by thread consensus (there'll be a few threads for this) then there will be actual voting.
In this thread post what you think to be the best creepypastas. You may list a few if you'd like.
Took this pic a few weeks ago
>went camping to the countryside
>was eating a sandwich
>think sandwich needs some more mayo because murica
>take out jar and pour that shit in
>see pic related
>the first contact with aliens
>walk up to them
>have jar on hand because autism
>one of them points to my jar
>opens his mouth and says some shit that i will never forget
>"ayy le mayo"
Next i remember is that they anally probed me for the next three hours, then they disappeared and i woke up in the middle of the nowhere with an anal probe in my butt
Vox and King Beau
Probably one of the best written copypasta.
This hits the spot. I don't understand why half of the internet-related creepypastas are so fucking retarded with super duber secret deepwebz and killers.... Normal Porn was simply describing something disturbing and uncanny shit and it did it right.
There's a fairly lengthy series of them that I think were called the "asylum series". Starts with a story told from the POV of a man who seems to be experiencing some severe paranoia/psychosis and locks himself in his apartment while freaking out about technology. Going to look around and see if I can provide a link. It's definitely my favorite to date.
Here's a link. Not sure why the first one I mentioned isn't included but I'm pretty sure he's the character in the last one called "the truth" that reveals said "truth" to the nurse.
I know I'm going to get
As a response.
But "the patient that nearly drove me out of medicine" was a fucking awesome read. Great ending too. A little bit long though, it has nine parts.
Definitely the best I've read in years
The worst creepypastas are the ones that heavily focus on a main character solving mysterious and fighting ghosts like he's an honorary member of Mystery Inc. I'm here for spoops not to listen to how super rad your self insert is Jeff.
Anyway Normal Porn for Normal People is my favorite. The first few chapters of The Princess before they go into the stupid cliche backstory are cool. Pale Luna is a classic. There are a few others like jvk1166z.esp I enjoy but the good creepypastas are far and few between.
No judgment here friend. I followed that nosleep from start to finish. The first time he actually spoke to Joe, I felt sick to my stomach because I wasn't sure if Joe was being honest or if he was just being a manipulative hellspawn.
Just read this and fucking loved it. And yes
the mansion part had me going "oh shit....ah fuck.....OH FUUUUCK" from the noticing the carpet to the final secret that i'll leave unspoiled. Fucking 10/10
Also really enjoyed Dr. A-------'s assessment
1999 is a damn fine piece of literature. It could easily be translated into a thriller movie script. Also, only creepypasta I've read that sounds "real", other ones don't have that feel.
Am I the only one Dogscape reader that remembered Song of Saya when read that? I'm not saying its not unique, but I can't believe no one seems to bring that up.
Any confirmations on how it was written? Like ive just found it for the first time and certain extracts are actually well written and others are bad. Its clearly multiple accounts of some surreal forsaken nightmare but did it originate as a group effort or one really inconsistent author?
Okay fuck each and every one of you for making me read dogscape.
I was not in any way shape or form ready for that, and nor will I ever be.
I am sitting here blankly staring at my computer. I looked through every reaction image I have and I do not have a single one that works. I have no words.
>everybody posting the lowest tier of memepasta
literally baka desu
browse some of these for a while
regardless of your thoughts on the dudes political content, his contests generate some good shit
OP here again, so far contestants are:
I'll watch the thread and maybe post another like this just to get the board consensus of what the competitors should be, then we can vote.
Is strawpoll good for this kind of thing? Or should the top winners be decided through some other means?
Up to a point I thought "patient that nearly drove me from medicine" seemed real. This patient with the horrifying past that Dr. A describes when he's explaining his hypothesis on what's wrong with Joe seemed like it could have been a legit case. Seemed like the author probably met that person, saw that he was pretty creepy even for a crazy and made up the rest to make it more of a mystery/thriller. Maybe even one of his orderlies killed themselves but regardless I could definitely see it being grounded in an actual patient.
Keep in mind he has archives for other years as well
I rather enjoy:
A Game of Flashlight Tag
Humper Monkey's Ghost Story (more of a short story than a creepypasta tho)
Normal Porn for Normal People
The Strangest Security Tape I've Ever Seen
I love everything /x/ has yo offer. Ghosts, flat earth, ayys, demons, and even shit posting liers.....
But creepypastas are fucking lame
Nevermind I found it.
I'll tell you what, I know it's not a creepy pasta and there's nothing paranormal about it, but that episode of Spongebob, missing the last bus, being in advanced darkness in a town you don't understand...it's just the most accurate illustration of anxiety and fear that I've ever seen. I'm too old to have seen Spongebob as a kid, but when my daughter used to watch it and that ep would come on I'd try and find some other cartoon for her to watch
Anansi's Goatman Story is G.O.A.T.
A Game of Flashlight Tag, story-wise was better than Anansi's
The rest just wallow in lame edginess. They're supposed to be creepypastas not guropastas.
Oh, and that one where the two dudes go camping in northern Canada in the middle of nowhere and get stalked by a skinwalker, that was good too. Makes you wonder what's really up there in all those unexplored areas.
Man, we played flashlight tag, but it was kind of on the honor system whether you where "tagged" with the light or not.
Making you identify people is probably a lot better. Shame we we're so retarded.
>Shame we we're so retarded
Couldn't agree more
Read Dogscape because it was mentioned in this thread a bunch and fuck everyone that mentioned it... Was eating when I read it, and I'm dead serious, I spit out half chewed food when reading it because I was so grossed out.
One of the best creepypastas I've read has got to be Psychosis (http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Psychosis). I also liked Knocking (http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Knocking), and The Strangers (image related). A really long read, yeah, but it's worth it in my opinion.
There's also this one fanfiction I read a while ago, I think it was suggested on the Cosmic Horror page on TvTropes. Something like "He had no fingers", I think. I think the author admitted that they had some sort of untreated mental illness at the time they wrote it.
Anansi's Goatman story got me into cryptids lol
He also did another one about an exorcism around the same time which was also good but doesn't get mentioned? Unless it has been and I don't know it by name?
I used to enjoy the threads by 'Blue' and his mystical adventures with aunt Val was it? Whatever happened to him?
Yeah, plus it took me a while to imagine all that shit in my head which was a bit of a pain but once I got adjusted to it it wasn't too terrible of a story. There was quite a lack of any character development, just wallowing in gore which got a bit tedious. I liked the ending though, made sense.
Haha I know what mod was used to make this screenshot.
Shit was actually the tightest mod ever. Let you be a real necromancer by actually following the processes listed in the in-game books. Had to harvest a soul, cut off the head, leave the body to be stripped by scavengers in the marshes. Then you brought it back to your lair where you used leather and scrap metal to craft a skeleton. It's skills and level were determined on your necromancy skill, the race of the body, and the soul you used.
THere was a Necromancy skill you could level and eventually learn to create higher level, more powerful undead. Could even make race specific skeletons and zombies, mummies, etc. They thought of everything .It was even a crime to be seen carrying a body like that.
Believe it was called Blasphemous Revenants.
That one's The Strangers, and yes, it's already been mentioned. It's the image in this post >>17209829
Seconding Anansi's Goatman Story which got me into skinwalkers and made me scared and unnerved for a week. Also Psychosis and Gristers were pretty awesome.
I also like the one in picture related, and I've got a bunch of greentext stories that are pretty awesome, like the one where the poster goes to visit some redneck relatives and a strange creature appears, or the one where the guy gives a lift to a little girl in the forest, only for her to run away and for him to be stalked by this big, hellhound-ish dog.
The Dionaea House
The Disappearance of Ashley, Kansas
The blank revolt
The harlequin series
The fourth child
The seer of possibilities
The pursuit institute
the puppet masters regime
What was the name of the pasta about the boy whose dad told him to hide in the closet upstairs then he later found out the real reason was his dad was a serial killer? That one was real gouda.
I swear to God, if that fucking Russian Sleep Experiment pasta wins, I will devote the rest of my life to destroying humanity via nuclear holocaust.
That shit's not scary. It's poorly-written and stupid.
Sorry for the buttrage, but I'm tired of seeing it in every pasta-related thread.
ubloo is fucking gay
I vote Anansi's Goatman Story, shit gives me chills every time.
Also, I have a soft spot for Funnymouth. What a handsome face! What a funny mouth! A funnymouth!
I always liked this one, but there are better ones
i wish i had more, this is the only "similar" one i have
The fact that no one has said anything about this makes me think that people around here don't approve. I mean, I get it. It's gotten a lot of exposure which makes it sort of played out at this point. But, I still think it's a fucking classic so I'm going to say it.
I mean, people actually seem to be bringing up Russian Sleep Experiment and approving of it and it doesn't get much more tryhard and campy than that. So, I guess I shouldn't feel too bad...
I really like the one called "Cabin Memories" or something similar. Also the Maine Taxi Guys stories are amazing.
I also really loved the Gristers, that story scared me since I had just read a bunch of stories earlier, it was perfect timing.
I also love Dogscape, I'd post the stories I mentioned but I don't have them saved.... Oh what about that forest ranger story that got popular on reddit? The one with the staircases, I enjoyed it a lot.
I just read it but I was wondering was that story before the real incident where that woman get her face ripped off by her chimpazee pet? If so, the thought of some monkey painted red tearing a bitch apart for sadistic pleasure seemed a believable thing that might have happened prior to a Hostel movie.
Read most of it and the comments
Is that what it takes to be creative these days?
Hm I think I'll make a story about a world made of _____... yeah that'll sell to the creepypasta kids for sure
It sounds like a joke the entire time but then you begin to realize the author is genuinely trying to gross/creep you out and it's just... Not that great.
Although I guess I'm just picky with what I consider to be genuinely frightening and just pointless gore/violence
Are you talking about this?
'Cause if so, I second this pasta.
YES cabin memories is the only story that gets me excited and horrified at the same time. It's brilliant.
IT MUST GET IN TO THE VOTING LIST
Idk if this is the official title, but I called it Rainy Days.
I say Anansi's Goatman story and skinwalker ones in general (like the one I posted).
Also fucking love Gristers and Psychosis.
Dogscape and NPFNP didn't really do much for me.
So much this
Also I read dogscape recently and its bullshit. Creative yes, but otherwise boring and with lots of unnecessary things like rape etc in desperate atempt to make story better. That monster part could make it interesting but was once again irrelevant to the story. 3/10
Before finishing second part I just skipped to end from all that cheese
Unsurprisingly it was demon all along!
Even people in comments of first part were calling it out
It's bad horror story if there is not even a bit of suspense
If I considered a story/movie bad because I knew the ending 15 minutes in then every movie I've seen or story I've read since I was ten would be garbage. You really should have read the whole thing, there are some great parts that have nothing to do with le spooky demon.
>The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month
>Everything was fine for the first five days
Good thing that this gas also makes people hydrated
anyone remember that one creepypasta about the dude who was on a road trip with his gf or something and they stop by an abandoned gas station and he finds some spooky shit in the basement of it and then they're like
trapped in that area forever and the spooky shit won't leave them alone?
i read it awhile ago, but i remember liking it
has this been mentioned already?
that 'dogs don't talk' pasta
people give it shit for being overly morbid but i thought it was just gross enough
it gets posted often enough, but i can't seem to find it right now
not so much. was ok until the end. The whole thing about "we are what you want to be" seemed forced and the last words the last patient spoke didn't make sense. Of course, I could be missing a huge point that blew everyone else's mind.
Throwing in a vote for Dogscape. It's the sort of creepy I tend to favor: absurd, apocalyptic, full of hopelessness, and kind of disgusting.
Not that stuff like Goatman and the more standard creepy stories aren't good. I just like dread over "oooo, skin walkers, ghosts and something hiding in your closet" type stuff.
Although, that reminds me. I'd like to vote for the one where the guy hasn't seen any other people, keeps getting more and more paranoid and eventually won't leave his apartment. He keeps trying to contact friends and eventually one comes over and he's freaked about opening the door. I can't remember the name of it. But it's one of my favorites.
It's like someone took an interesting premise and then took a bloody dump on its chest then smeared it on the Internet.
I really wanted it to be good, too. They could have gone Lovecraft with it and it would have at least been tolerable.
How can you put Humper Monkey in the list and forget about 50 Foot Ant, those were awesome, tho i read till the third one
Only thing on /x/ which has given me legitimate nightmares is this one
My other votes would have to go to 'Huntsville Camping Trip' and 'Arizona' which were amongst the first i ever read and still the spookiest
It's been mentioned, yeah.
Still one of the best though, so definitely voting for it. Also voting for Knocking.
The first two logs of dogscape are taken word for word from a something awful thread on fyad. no idea who wrote the rest but it's no surprise that the quality declines quickly afterwards
There's a really simple story about a homeless dude sleeping at night who wakes up to somebody pissing on him.
It's really short, but has a great twist at the end. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
Smile.jpg could've been good if it was just the picture without any context ever given. The actual pasta was laughable.
this one fucked me up
I agree, and I think most people here force themselves not to like it because its become the most normie "dude BEN lmao" shit ever.
The story itself was solid at first, but got shittier and shittier and eventually lost all momentum when the author talked to Ben through Cleverbot. Prior to that, though, the footage was great and it's still amazing to think about how many people genuinely believed it was real. It kind of invented the whole idea of a spooky ARG. I can't think of anything prior to it.
It got too popular for its own good.
I've always been found of Mr. Widemouth, tho its been some time since I last read it
I was one of those poorfag kids that always wanted a furby and Mr. Widemouth makes me kinda glad I never got one, waaayyy too many similarities
Not a creepypasta, but I fucking love this image.
>I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really like this image.
Personally, I think that creepypasta named "1999" it's p good. I don't read that much tho. There's this one that I don't got the link, I guess is only in my language, but it's so damn good that I even cry because of how well-written the thing is. You feel the character's fear. You feel all the vibe of the story. My favourite one desu.
does anyone have the one of the kid from the city who visits his family in the south and they all go camping in some trailer and shit and they talk about how retrospectively there was always 1 too many of them and all his friends thought he was joking until the end? that was a pretty damn good one shit got me interested into the skinwalker goatman or whatever the fuck it is, cause until i read that one it seemed kinda lame
there were a number of other good ones about the skinwalker thing too but that i think was one of the better ones
"Anansi's Goatman Story" is probably what you're talking about. And yeah, it's basically the best one.
There was also the one where the guy's best friend is killed/replaced by a skinwalker. That one's also pretty good.
There was one where some dude in Nevada goes out with his friends to the middle of the desert to party and they find an abandoned house which read pretty good. Sounded similar to a skinwalker story, had pics too.
Am I the only one that didn't like NPFNP at all? It wasn't scary, or unsettling. It didn't even carry any semblance of a brooding atmosphere.
Things just happened, and that was about it.
On a night when there is a new moon, get into your car and start driving out of the city. Take back roads. Get yourself lost on dirt paths. Watch the clock — when it strikes 1:11 AM, you may now try to find your way back to civilization. If the night is right, you’ll come upon an old, run-down diner or gas station. Stop here.
Go inside. There will be an old man behind the counter, his teeth dripping in a terrible grin. Sit on the third barstool from the right and pick up a menu. Study this menu and do not say a word. Do not make eye contact with the old man. Eventually, after many minutes of silence, he will say “What are you in the mood for, friend?” You must answer “The night holds a secret for us each.” If you say anything else, the old man’s teeth will rip from his face and strangle you in a silent horror.
If you have done this correctly, he will say “Very well, very well, cone on back.” If he does not say “very well” twice, it is a trap — do not follow him and instead run as far away from the diner as you can, not turning back to witness the putrefied corpse that will now hunt you for the rest of your days. But if he does say “very well” twice, follow him behind the counter into the kitchen.
The kitchen will be very dark. Stare straight ahead at the old man’s back. If you hear the clatter of utensils, try to fight the urge to turn your head towards the sound. Soon, the kitchen will fade and it will be just you and the old man in a pitch-black hallway. You will lose sight of the old man completely, and suddenly a spotlight will shine down onto a little girl’s decapitated head, resting on the floor. The head will start to sing a single note, and you must match this note. You have one chance — if you sing the wrong note, the head will grow to enormous size and chew you alive, and you will never die and you’ll feel all of it forever you sing the right note, however, the head will burrow into the ground and three doors will appear.
Turn counter-clockwise (COUNTER-CLOCKWISE!) eighty-one times with your left arm outstretched. When you stop, the door closest to your left hand will be the wrong door. Do not go through this door — take either one of the other two. It does not matter.
Once you pass through one of the doors, you will feel a strange sensation — look down. You’ve been transformed into an owl. Fly upwards, out of the broken skylight, until you come upon the tallest tree nearby. It will be very tall. Fly up to it and land only on the sixth branch from the ground. If you land on the wrong branch, the tree will turn into blood and drown you.
But if you found the right branch, sit and wait here for exactly 45 hours with your eyes closed. Do not open your owl eyes until 45 hours have passed, or you will remain trapped as an owl forever, and the corpse from earlier will make it its goal to catch you. Forever.
If 45 hours have passed, open your eyes — you are human again, but your legs have been replaced with great, bloody swords. Walk on your swordpoints on the precarious mountain trail until you reach the summit — here there are two things resting on two executioner’s blocks. The old man is also here. One of the things is an infant. The other is a severed torso.
The old man will say “make your selection.” Using your sword-legs, you must jump into the air and simultaneously decapitate the baby and stab through the heart of the torso. If you miss the jump, the baby will suddenly be made out of coiled wires, and the wires will wrap around you like snakes, and constrict you like the Twisted Pictures logo at the beginning of the Saw movies. Then you will die forever. But, if you perform the move right, the old man will smile, and say “Remember that terror is in the black heart of the moon, and horror can burn the sun with its bloodbones.” Then the sun will turn black as the night, seeming to suck all the stars from the sky.
The old man will now recite a 183-digit number that you only have one chance to remember.
The old man will morph into a safe with a digital keypad. Approach the safe and enter the long number into the keypad. If you make a mistake and the safe begins to hiss, run away on your sword-legs, and maybe the safe won’t turn into a bloody bag of pus with tentacles that will try to impale you. If the safe doesn’t hiss, or stops hissing, it’s safe to start over.
If you enter the number right, the safe will transform back into an old man… but this time, he will have the head of a thousand bloody dogs. If you are lucky, the only pug’s head in the superhead will bark and lick you. Do not try to force the pug to lick you, unless you want to be torn apart by a thousand dogs’ heads. If the pug licks you, it will wink twice and its eyes will turn into razor blades. Then, suddenly, you will be back in your car, driving on an abandoned road again. Make your way back home and sleep.
If you have performed all of this correctly, then you will be allergic to sunlight and water, and your bones will turn into glass, but you will be able to teleport into any coffin in the world.
I looked this up, and I was genuinely surprised. This one gave me more feels that chills, and it was a really, really compelling story.
The version I read was from the creepypasta wiki site, but it's unfinished, is there any finished version?
That one set of 7 or so short stories where the author/narrator is stalked by some sick fuck over the course of his childhood got pretty spooky for the first 4 or so before it went full try hard
Mainly I'd say because of how fucking real they seemed
Especially the one about receiving pictures of himself and his friend selling lemonade or his cat disappearing when it traveled back to his previous childhood house. That one has the best bit when he hears the cat meowing through the walkey-talkey
>"Boxes never came home"
The creepiest shit is always the stuff that is able to toe the line between terrifying and ridiculous.
In other news, some dipshits just set off firecrackers in my apartment outside hallway and it legit sounded like .22 fire and holy fuck I swear to Christ I was expecting another shooting.
Cops arrived and everything.
There are some good creepypastas in spanish that sadly almost nobody knows, this is one
Its about a guy that reads about something called "Japan Freakshow" in an old forum, something like a "Traveling freakshow", so, this guy spend months searching for it and finds its webpage and sees that the freakshow travels between countries, the guy waits for it to be in his country, and then he goes to an hotel in the middle of nowere and waits for a van, some guys come out of the van and takes him to the backseat blindfolded, then he comes to the place where the freakshow is and the fucked up things start happening
Sorry for the shitty english, if somebody is interested ill try to translate it tomorrow

Can't say those are candles either unless they got the kind which burn much higher than 15 lumens.
Couldn't they have tried a little harder? Then again I am the most autistic person on the planet.
