The world is full of unusual and scary happenings and we all have our fears. From the fear of insects, to something as simple as the fear of heights, we all have that one thing that has the capability to terrify us to the core. Many of us try our best to avoid these terrors, but somehow, life has a way of letting them show themselves in strange ways. The internet is a perfect example. All over the world wide web, are forms of our fears with videos, pictures, and even stories. Videos in particular have a way of bringing those deep fears to life in a way few others can. It can be a video of a man walking high atop the rooftops of New York buildings that strikes fear within a person, a group of spiders scurrying across a few tree branches making your skin crawl, or creepy dolls that seem a little too life-like. Whatever the scare, everyone possesses a weakness for the fear. And while these things aren’t considered to be scary for everyone, they still possess a creepiness to them that intrigues people and grants a want for the curious. Here are fifteen of the creepiest videos online.
15. “Pretty Woman”
A man by the name of Edward Muscare, posted a video online. In this video, he is singing a popular song by Roy Orbison, known as “Pretty Woman.” Apart from the man being creepy in a general way with his deep dark circles underneath his eyes, stark white hair that stands on end around his bald head, and his terrifying deep eyes, this man holds another scary secret that isn’t known by simply looking at him. Edward Muscare is a registered sex offender, and part of his offense was the restriction of online use. Once the police caught wind of the viral video, they quickly called up Edward and summoned him to court.
14. Agamemnon Counterpart
At the beginning of the video, a legal warning is displayed stating that the video is for private home use only. The video is full of static and strange noises when a description pops up explaining what we’re about to see. “In the year 2571 a videocassette tape was found in a pile of rubble on the ruins of a certain blue planet. What you are about to witness will not be the contents of the fore-mentioned cassette. This is an entirely different recording.” As the video opens, the words “Let’s Make A Friend” are displayed on the screen. With a few messed up looking cartoon characters, it appears to be a crazy animated show with lots of scary transitions and noises. What is unsettling about this video is that further research quickly leads to dead ends. The video is undoubtedly a mystery.
13. Body of A Pig
The video itself does not give a lot of information on the location or who is performing the ghost hunt, but it is definitely creepy. With a run time of only one minute and sixteen seconds, the video shows the group walking into a strange door that appears to lead to somewhere underground. While opening the door, a voice can be heard saying the words “I have the body of a pig” with the voice grunting right after. The video is slowed down and adjusted a second time for anyone who couldn’t hear it the first go around along with a picture captured at the time of the ghost hunt.
12. Laugh A Lot
This original toy was invented as a harmless invention, but like so many other toys, it came with creepy additions. The laugh that the company uses for the doll is generic, high pitched and absolutely scary. In the video, the doll is introduced with a little girl setting the doll down on the table as it starts laughing. At first glance the commercial is innocent, then, it quickly turns sour. The children have shocked faces and seem infected with the laugh, as if they have no choice but to release laughter. Even the narrator has trouble containing his laugh as everyone keeps laughing.
11. Username: 666
This stunningly vivid and scary video shows a PC user trying to access a YouTube channel that has been suspended. The name of the channel is 666, the infamous number of the beast. The number is revered by many as a terrible omen, and in this video the user attempts access. After a while, it appears that no matter how many times he tries to refresh the page, the site is telling him the account is suspended, but, after many clicks, he finally accesses the page as it slowly takes on an entirely different and sadistic form. The user tries to close out of the page, only to find that he can’t. He then tries to shut down the computer and the PC is unresponsive. Eventually, the videos cuts off at the end with a creepy lady reaching out towards the screen.
10. Daddy Long Legs
For those of us who have a fear of spiders, there are plenty of videos sprawled out over the web that are capable of terrifying us.

But, when the man in the video pushes it with a stick, it reveals that the “hair ball” is in fact a mass of these spiders as they come tumbling down the tree!
9. Late Night Road Block
Our parents have warned us about the dangers of stopping for strangers on the side of the road. However, what would be the course of action one would take if the road has been blocked off?
