    The Thread of Creepy

    I really missed this one from the old ETS...it kept me up waaaaaaaaaaay too late on a number of nights. Post creepy shit here. Photos, videos, stories, whatever.

    This kind of gives me the willies. I'm always skeptical of "ghost shows," but even if there's an innocent explanation, I know that if I ever witnessed that in person, I'd be freaked the fuck out.

    This place. It is all of the creepy. Crease Clinic, ex mental asylum, now used by the film industry for various interiors/exteriors. Battlestar fans will recognize the outside steps there as the front of the building Starbuck was imprisoned in on Caprica. Once you're the last person out of the building at night, not much else is creepy. Especially considering the fact that the STILL ACTIVE part of the institution is just up the hill. Awesome.

    I was literally about to type that the only thing scary about that building was the photograph itself.

    It has been reported that some victims of torture, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not wake up. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren’t being tortured. The only way that they realized they needed to wake up was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to wake up. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and please wake up.

    One of my favorite threads on Old ETS; glad to see it back! I have some of the links that were posted on the other thread on my old computer; I'll see if I can dig them out.

    In the mean time, I saw this a while ago on cracked.com and it scared the heck out of me. I've often found sounds to be as creepy as images (if not more sometimes) and this is one of them.

    According to cracked, it's called the "Backward Music Station" and it's broadcasting "
    something from the fucking bowels of Hell itself". You can read more in the article, including attempts at an explanation for it. Here is an example of what it sounds like:

    One of my favorite creepy thing. This would make such a terrifying movie!

    UGH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

    I was listening to Kate Bush's "Waking the Witch" the other day and there's this part full of people whispering "wake up!" and it made me think of this.

    Copy and paste the link. I wasn't even reading it properly and I freaked out. I think if I had the suspense followed by the OH GOD would've given me a heart attack.

    Oh god, I saw that months ago and it scared the living shit out of me. Didn't help that I read it right before bed because that image was like imbedded into my eyeballs before sleeping.

    HOLY FUCK. I closed the tab without reading the rest.I'll be sleeping with my light on tonight, thanks.

    ETA: It's also kind of freaky how the page doesn't really let you scroll back up once you scroll to the terrifying thing.

    The thing is, it doesn't seem to work always. The first couple of times I was scrolling down, the...um...thing that was supposed to happen, didn't, it just scrolled down normally, so it wasn't scary. Third time's a charm however, it was quite more unnerving then!

    Wow I love this kind of "what the hell happened here?" kind of events. Never heard of this until now. I only hope, if hollywood does decide to do something on it that it NOT be yet another "we found some footage and here it is in raw form" type of film. That whole deal is getting old. I far prefer the "here's what we discovered and here is our best guess as to how it occurred" kind of movie.

    Haha, I was wondering what the fuck every one was going on about, No Script beats cheap jump scares.

    This is the kind of stuff that truly creeps me out.

    I'm amazed at the response this is getting. I read this at work today, and just kind of shrugged at the end. Post in a spoilers-esque way if you want, but what the hell was so scary about that?
