Not one bit
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Some of these creep me the fuck out. This is literally the only one I could find that wasn't read by some old British guy though. That sometimes kills the effect.

I tend to find horror stories quite lacking. I think that people confuse terror (something immediate, direct + existentially threatening) with horror, which to my mind is unseen, unknowable and engaging in some form with the sublime. In my view, something truly horrific is also terribly upsetting.

With that in mind, I found Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun to be pretty upsetting up until the grand political parts. Stuff like The Library of Babel also.

Then you've got Dark Souls and shit.

my favourite creepypasta is probs

A young girl is playing in her bedroom when she hears her mother call to her from the kitchen, so she runs downstairs to meet her mother.

As she's running through the hallway, the door to the cupboard under the stairs opens, and a hand reaches out and pulls her in. It's her mother. She whispers to her child, "Don't go into the kitchen. I heard it too."

I'm pretty sure every story on this channel mentioned above is narrated from /nosleep. Not much on there though. Hopefully they post more because /nosleep is my fav.

I enjoy listening to creepy pasta readings sometimes, but to be fair, a lot of them are absolutely ******ed, and/or poorly written.

Song and dance man is a good short story. Edgar allen poe and hp lovecraft have oodles of professionally written creepy short stories.

Every videogame related creepy pasta is pure cringe except the xorax, I think it's called, the rest are "hyper-realistic" garbage.

Honestly there's a pretty big divide from creepy pasta's written by competent writers, and the amateur crowd that rips each other off giving straight fact stories.

If you want a large catalogue of creepy stuff, from medevil torture devices to creepy books, there's a sticky on /x/.

I love scary stories. Used to read Creepypasta a lot years ago but the recent ones suck nine times out of ten. Now I ask friends to tell me urban legends from their areas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_urban_legend

Teketeke is one of my favourites.

And then there's some from my area. I'll do my best to tell them well, but they lose a lot of their flavour when written down and translated.

How about this one?

My mother told me that in her village when she was a kid, a woman went out in the fields in the afternoon even though the people warned her not to because they were a really scared people back then, believing in witches and such, and they'd seen a strange lady in the fields.

Anyway, the woman did go right up to the lady to go through her 'Who are you?' routine when the lady bit her and mauled her.

The villagers went out and dragged her back home but she was barely alive and when they tried to give her water she threw it away. She couldn't drink water at all and soon enough went insane and died writhing in agony and thirst.

I suppose one can infer now that the 'strange lady' had rabies and infected the woman, but the villagers were illiterate so they must have thought she was a demon or something.

And then there's this other one, which sounded great when told but sounds lame when translated:

See, here lots of people believe that you can summon and control demons if you go to a graveyard, draw a protective circle around yourself (demons can't get in) and chant some crap and stay there until dawn when you leave. The demons, once summoned, will do your bidding, but they'll hate you for it and will drive you insane/tear you to pieces the first chance they get.

Once a guy went to the graveyard, drew the circle around himself and began summoning demons. They came, and did their best to scare him out of the circle so they could eviscerate him, but he stayed inside and kept chanting to bring them under his control.

After a while, they said, "He's not coming out, let's kill his mother in front of him instead." They brought his mother to the graveyard, screaming and begging for mercy. The man stepped out to save his mother, but she was just a demon who'd taken on his mother's form, and she leapt and tore his throat out.

So yeah. >.> It sounds better when spoken.

Always dig being scared. This was just posted up this morning on that same channel I've been watching apparently. I don't know what to think about binaural beats, but this did sketch me out a little. Placebo I imagine.

You pretty much got them backwards. Terror is a sense of fear and axiety of what you know might happen, like being in a dark room when you think there is a big rat somewhere. Horror is the experience when something actually happens, like when you see the rat crawl over your foot. Some add repulsion as separate from horror, which is more just disgust, like finding the rat gored up by a rat trap.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Does any of this really matter? lol. Horror here is just referring to a genre. People don't call them terror movies or terror stories.

It does matter. Gothic literature makes the distinction big time and many modern authors, such as Stephen King, make the distinction as well. King for example describes it as a hierarchy where terror is the finest but most difficult of the three to pull off, horror is in the middle, and repulsion is fairly low brow and more just cheap shock value.

If you were serious about the horror genre rather than just some casual person, you would absolutely care about the distinction.

I looked up definitions and they were useless

idk I've always associated the word terror with -ism, so maybe that's why I think of it as much more event-focused or smth. Perhaps a false association on my part

I'll do some research I guess
#36
Yeah.. I don't guess I am "serious" about it. I just like creepy shit. This post got very boring very quickly. We are discussing definitions now...

I didn't realize we had horror elitists out there. I guess you find them everywhere.

Sometimes you need to have definitions in order to discuss stuff. Otherwise we could end up having two different conversations with each other.

For example, you don't know what the word "elitist" means, if that post is anything to go by.
#38
I guess pretending you know more about horror because you guys are super serious about it doesn't make you elitists? You just sound like trolls to me. I'm done with this thread now I guess. You guys killed it. At least there were a few cool stories posted. I'm really glad someone out there knows. You guys are super smart. I am so glad this turned into a logic debate.

Clearly if I know the definition of horror and you don't then that's something that I know that you don't. Therefore if our knowledge is otherwise 100%, than knowing that brings me to 101% and therefore I would in fact know more than you. If you want to talk elitism though, have you even seen any German expressionist horror films? Those are obviously the finest films in the horror genre.
