Favorite spooky websites?
« on: September 28, 2011, 02:51:16 PM »
Since our ghost thread is quiet right now, I'm in serious need of a scare-myself-senseless fix.  :P  I really enjoy castleofspirits.com, but I think I've read most (if not all) of the stories on there.  What websites do you visit for a good scare?  Could be ghost stories, paranormal investigations, etc.

Creepypasta.com is a site where people submit their own written stories. Some are really good and some are terrible but I usually find a few that scare the bugeezus out of me.

Secure. Contain. Protect.  A crowd written collection of fictional files/short stories about fictional monsters and the agents that are assigned to contain them. The link I've posted there is ranking the pages from the most popular entries at the top. Some are downright hilariously funny, some are spine tinglingly creepy. I love them.

Augh! It's as addictive as TV tropes.

There was a series (still available online, but not currently written) called Creepy Things That Seem Real but Aren't.  Lots of good ones there.

Chilling Tales for Dark Nights.  The stories are mostly fan written but there are also some tales written by old masters. Could be Ambrose Bierce today and Lovecraft tomorrow.  The stories are all narrated by other fans and voice over folks. 

The quality is all over the map, however.  For every MJ.R. James story (or a story done in the mode of James) and for every well written original tale, there will be five that are full of grammatical and continuity errors, murky sentence structure and complete lack of logic.  I feel bad for the narrators who go ahead and read this stuff with all the errors still there.  Still, a good number of chills to be had there, hence the name.

Also the sub reddit, Supershort, scary stories.  250 word stories that don't take too long to read.  Again, quality varies wildly from post to post.  It would be nice if folks learned the use of tense, point of view and verbs, but I guess that would take too long.

There are. :)

The worst part is that it's got the writer part of my brain going "hmm". I don't need that, I already have enough writing projects. ;)

Reddit. Seriously. They have a creepypasta subreddit and a notsleeping reddit. Things like that. Tons of stories and pictures that are various forms of creepy. And despite the terrible reputation reddit amasses, the horror subreddits are very good. Everyone's super nice.

One of the "back pages" I put for fun on my website. Not terribly spooky, but some (and fun):
