I’m sure you’ve heard of the Deep Web, which is ill famous for quite a few reasons, one of them is its collection and availability of creepy websites.
Not that the surface web doesn’t have these, but those on the Deep Web exceed all known definitions of “scary websites” and have put themselves in the list of the scariest websites to have ever existed on the internet.
I promise I’ll get you some of the creepiest websites (along with their links) but before that let’s get you a run-up before actually taking you full throttle of what you ought to expect here.
What do I Mean by Creepy Websites?
By definition, creepy simple means something that’s unpleasant, or arouses fear in our minds.
Can I ask you to multiply the intensity of that definition by 10 times or so? Because then you’ll get an idea of what the creepy websites we’re taking about have in store for you.
Ranging from photos of dead babies, last cries of dying people, and summoning ghosts, to live-torture, rape, or even murder nothing is out of the box here.
There even are websites which claim to have cameras in abandoned hospitals which showcase all kinds of paranormal activities in real-time, or websites which let you play interactive scary games.
How real are these activities and actions is debatable. There’s a group of people which believes it’s all fake and is just for show.
Others, however, are firm believers and are sure whatever’s being shown is totally real.
There’s a third group of people as well, which is oblivious to the existence of these sites and believes these sites do not exist.
Let me tell you, the one thing I’m sure about, in all certainty, is the existence of these disturbing websites, at least at some point of time even if it was in the past when it was much easier to “not get caught” on the internet.
“Daisy’s Destruction” (a website where Peter Scully sexually and physically abused children) is one of the most concrete evidence of these creepy sites’ existence, followed by hundreds of others.
So yeah, unfortunately, they’re all too real, here are some of the most creepy websites people have ever come across, brace yourselves!
1. Red Rooms (Human Experiments)
You can read any article on the Internet or magazines about scary websites, the Red Rooms always occupy the first position.
These are basically websites where experiments and torture are done on animals or Humans (mostly humans), by Humans and streamed live or the clips are put up for sale post-recording.
The worst part? You can get in for as low as 0.01BTC, and the even worse news is, spectators actually control what happens in the rooms.
E.g. there are chat boxes on the sites, and people pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to get things done to the victim.
You can (but you shouldn’t, ever) request a toe or a finger to be chopped off, send in the BTC, and your request will be carried out, in real-time.
Or, there can be other variations a well, e.g. you may be required to pre-pay and send in your “requirements” beforehand.
Although 90% of the websites claiming to be these are fakes. And the actual authentic ones aren’t really “advertised” for obvious reasons.
You either need to know the URL by yourself, or can get “invited in” by an existing member, probably that’s why most people do not believe in their existence, cause hey even if your friend is in on these, they won’t exactly boast of it to you, right?
*The URL provided above is an example, it may or may not be an actual red-room, because hey I don’t have the guts to check if it is.
2. Numbers Station
Please don’t have your headphones on when on this page, you’ll regret it! Because all of a sudden, out of nowhere you’ll start hearing a lot of blabbers, in different languages, dialects, and even numbers.
What makes it more creepier is, it’s not at all random or blabber. Instead they’re “secret messages” sent by spies and military which the common folks would not make heads or toes of.
How old, or of what exactly these messages are, no one knows. But hey, someone whispering words I can’t understand in my ears sure as hell creeps me out.
3. Sentimental Corp
A static website it is. Well, if you think there’s nothing creepy about that, you’re so wrong!
A man is sitting with his wife, or girlfriend maybe, with a television in front of him with the words “Nothing” written on it.
Some really (really) weird and “ghostly” images pass by, and after couple minutes on the site, you’re going to have to pinch yourselves to make sure you aren’t going crazy for real.
It doesn’t do anything serious, but go over there and I bet you’ll admit it’s all sorts of creepy.
4. Summon Demons
Human experiments or meat is one thing, but Demons? That’s a different realm altogether!
It shows you how to summon demons, why Christianity according to them is the false religion, and they even accept donations to advance Satanism.
Just in case you’re wondering, they’re legal, and their arguments seem well researched if nothing else.
There are E-groups you can join in order to get a deeper understanding of Satanism and after some hours on the page, it gets real intense and all creepy like.
5. Dead Babies
Babies are supposed to be cute. But this site topples that notion upside down. It’s basically a website where mothers or relatives post photos of their dead babies.
The photos aren’t just “dead”, in most cases they’re gruesome to look at. And creepy enough to give you a “no-sleep” night, literally, trust me I’m speaking from experience.
It’s supposed to somehow “immortalize” the babies, and there are “digital candles” on the sidebar that people burn and write memoirs for them.
6. Creepy Pasta
Well, the name explains itself, doesn’t it? Although nope, you can’t order pasta there. Instead, it’s a site for stories.
Ah, simple. What’s creepy about that? Huh?
The stories! That’s what creepy about it. It deals with horror stories, and let me tell you they feel very real, and well-written, almost with a novelist’s expertise.
Are these stories real? My take on it is no, they aren’t. They are user-generated and their intention is to scare readers, just that.
But then again, there are people who do believe in these being real, which if true, will make this probably the most creepy website in this list. And even if not, simply going through the stories is enough to give you a chill for life.
7. White Enamel
Talking of creepy websites, I can’t just not talk about White Enamel. This is the “total package” if you’re in for some scary experiences.
It’s a website which lets you play a “click and point” game. Ah, sounds fun? It isn’t!
The environment, first of all, seems totally real, that of an abandoned, haunted hospital! Then there’s the super creepy music.
Simply watching the videos being played will scare the hell out of you, trust me I was shook. You can also click on various objects on the screen such as a video-recorder to grab and use it and so on.
Bottomline, if you need a 3D, interactive scary experience, this is it.
Try this – Click on Part-2 of the game, and wait 5 seconds. You’ll never go back to this site again!
8. Best Gore
Do not click on the above link if you can’t bear the sight of bones being sawn through, people being shot in the most brutal ways, or anything similar to that.
Because that’s what the Best Gore site is about. You can find extremely graphic video content there, content which will haunt you for days.
Although it’s not all extreme, and slightly mild content such as people being beaten in public, dangerous real stunts leading to dead etc. are also available.
Let me tell you it’s not a “red-room”, because the content isn’t created or owned by the site, they just manage to get a hold of the videos and share it with their readers.
9. Ghost Island of Japan
Ever wanted to stroll around a haunted, dead-like zone all alone? If you said yes (although I wish you don’t) this is one of the most creepy websites to visit.
It lets you enter “Hashima Island”, a very real place in Japan, and walk around it using Google street view.
Inside Hashima Island, you can select from 5 different locations, and walk around.
These locations aren’t computer generated but are real, and on the right sidebar, you also get information related to the location.
Not creepy enough? Get your headphones on. They’ve made sure they top any list on creepy websites by embedding some really eerie music to the whole thing.
10. Inside of a Violent Sexual Offender’s Mind
Ever wondered what goes on inside a violent sexual offender’s mind? I’m sure you wouldn’t want to know, I don’t either.
But Joseph E. Duncan III, a prisoner reportedly wrote his confessions, dreams, desires and what not, and sent them to a colleague who printed and published it out on the blog.
The blog is still live and has over 30 entries. On the surface level it might not be as weird as the other creepy websites on this list, but reading the blog for some time does give you the creeps.
11. Shocking Surprise
If I reveal what happens on this website, the surprise is dead, and it won’t really fit the bill of creepy websites anymore.
So can you just trust me, and go over there, check it out for yourselves? But let me warn you, try not to wear your headphones, and do not check it out if you’re prone to seizures (it’s not a joke, seriously it has shock-inducing capabilities).
Anyway, I feel and believe it’s probably one of the most creepy websites that I’ve included in this whole list.
12. Scary for Kids
Kids? Well, do not get fooled by the title. Scary for Kids, Even scarier for Adults. That’s what their tagline says. Basically, the homepage is like a directory.
A compilation of nearly everything we’ve talked about so far in this list of creepy websites.
They’ve got stories, videos, photos, games, movies and what not, all related to ghosts or paranormal activities.
Initially, I thought it’s not really creepy and was about to exclude it from this list, but then I stumbled upon some more of their posts, and well that changed my mind to say the least.
Okay this is taking things too far, I mean I’m writing this piece at around 1:30, in a dark room, and trust me it was a mistake I opened the site up.
It basically has a short video, of a blood-stained girl and even creepier music accompanying it.
Looking for a reason not to sleep tonight? Sure, be my guest, all it needs is one click to the website and your sleep is gone, for more than one night in some cases.
14. Heaven’s Gate
The level of creep this website gives you, depends on how focused you were when reading what’s there.
Also, how strongly you believe in Heaven, Hell and God.
Most of you reading this here probably do believe, and the site forces you to think about Doom’s day, how Earth was created, why it’s going to be destructed (soon) and so on.
Although the most creepy part of the website is its “Last chance to evacuate earth” section.
You’ll find more topics such as “How to transcend beyond humans” and what not. Bottomline, it is creepy.
15. Survive the Outbreak
Interactive games are getting more and more popular on the web, that was the white enamel that we talked about earlier.
Survive the Outbreak too is a similar, yet different website. It’s interactive, so you get to choose your “actions” for the characters, the path (option) you take, defines what happens next in the game.
It can lead to better, or worse ends. Either way, it’s ghostly, horror, and the cut scenes were more than I could handle.
16. The House
Games seem to dominate the web when it comes to creepy websites, maybe because a passive website may or may not creep us out, but when our actions control what’s happening on the screen, well yeah it’s scary.
The House is another of those interactive games, but it’s better (as far as scaring me goes), it gives us more control over the game, we need to not only choose the path as with Survive the Outbreak.
Instead, we need to choose clues, understand them and proceed likewise with The House, which makes it more fun (and creepy).
17. The House 2
The House 1 wasn’t scary enough for you? Probably not for the developers of the game either, so they came up with The House’s sequel.
It’s a story of a house in which all its family members committed suicide (damn, I’m literally getting the chills) and we (the players) have to play the game interactively with the various elements in it.
What I noticed in House 2 was that they’ve significantly upgraded the “scary” part. There’s a lot more scare, hint of paranormal presence and the graphics too is somewhat upgraded.
Even though it’s on #17 on this list, this is just a list, this should very well be one of the top 3 creepy websites here.
18. The Cell
The Cell is yet another game creepy enough to ruin your nights. The primary point which interested me here was its ability to connect the game to real-life.
Basically, the player wakes up in the cell, with no knowledge of the past, then there are calls, you have to listen to the voice at the other end of the phone, take the hints and make your way out.
The thing is, the music, the environment and especially the phone calls are so realistic, I actually started getting scared picking up my real-life calls. So the game kind of remains with us even when we close it.
This is a very distinct, and remarkable feature I’ve never seen with any of the other creepy websites we’ve talked about so far.
19. Correspondence From Mark Condry
It’s about E-mails! Wow, you must be thinking what can be scary about E-mails, right? And why on earth is it on this list of creepy websites?
Is it about one of those creepy websites that know everything about you? No.
But, E-mails too can be scary, when they’re between two people, real people, who discuss the events of a supposedly haunted house.
The “reality” of the conversation is what gives me Goosebumps. They didn’t make it up, they experienced those events and shared it with one another. Well, surely that’s creepy.
20. The Last Meals Project
The thought of “dead-people” alone is enough to shake me up (Yeah I’m a weak-hearted person).
But, The Last Meals Project takes it one notch further and gives us the mugshots of people on the death-row, and their last meals.
In my experience, just knowing that none of the people whose photos I’m staring at are alive anymore is creepy enough, in addition, the pictures of their last meals, knowing this is the last time they tasted food just adds to the experience.
It also gives us a closer perspective on life, it’s strange, but I personally started taking the small things seriously after visiting it, for e.g. bathing, looking at my parents, and definitely taking a meal, cause what if it’s my last?
This is the final addition to this list of creepy websites, cause hey honestly, I’m scared by now. And it’s 2:30 a.m at my place.
Magibon basically is a website, where a woman uploaded videos. What kind? The scary!
She stared at the video for some seconds in most of them. Although there was a second video-stream as well, of a man scratching the floor madly.
As if the content of the website wasn’t scary enough by itself, and even though Magibon received immense popularity, and even her very own Wikipedia page, she suddenly stopped uploading one day.
Well, that’s another reason multiplying the creepiness of the website, and no one knows where she went or what happened to her.
22. Naver Comics
Like reading comics? Well that may change after going through this site, it basically is a Korean Comic site, “horror” comic site to be more specific; with pretty rich and detailed graphics, and best of all it’s almost interactive!
To add it to all, they also include real-life ghost stories, such as suicide-victims seen walking around with their exact name and locality!
If that doesn’t qualify for a load of “Creep” I don’t know what does!
So that’ll be all as far as creepy websites go folks. The one thing I’m sure of is if you visited even half of the sites on this list, you aren’t going to sleep tonight (I definitely won’t be able to).
So wrapping this up, all I’ll say is, do not believe or follow any and all links on the dark web no matter how lucrative they seem to be. Most are designed to scam you.
Although the clearnet websites we’ve included so far in this list of creepy websites are the real-deal as all of them are free, provide you the same creepiness but for free, and are legal as well.
Do let me know if you believe there are some other websites this list should have but is missing.
