Wanna See Something REALLY Scary? CNN’s Doomsday Video

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

To horror fans who came of age in the 1980s, the line above instantly evokes memories of Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the opening scene from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

Last week, residents in Orange County, California had their television programming interrupted by a test of The Emergency Broadcast System. While this fact alone is not unusual, the audio that accompanied the normal tone and black screen was nothing short of alarming; some actually recorded what they were seeing and hearing.

In the first video below, you can hear someone ranting desperately about the government and Area 51: “The space program made contact with… They are not what they claim to be. They have infiltrated a lot of, uh, a lot of aspects of military establishment, particularly Area 51. The disasters that are coming—the military—I’m sorry the government knows about them…”

In this next video, you can hear the apocalyptic ravings of a mad preacher; have a look/listen:

The sources of the audio in these videos have been identified; the first is from a call received by paranormal researcher and conspiracy theorist Art Bell on his syndicated talk show and the second was culled from the Christian radio program Insight for Living with Chuck Swindoll. So, while it would appear these broadcasts were hoaxes perpetrated by digital hackers, one can only imagine how unnerving it was to be watching TV, only to have these doomsday messages interrupt out of nowhere!

If you’re ever watching CNN and you see the video below, it’s time to literally kiss your ass goodbye. When Ted Turner purchased the network in 1980, he famously exclaimed, “We won’t be signing off until the world ends. We’ll be on, and we will cover the end of the world live, and that will be our last event.” To that end, Turner commission the video below with instructions that it be played on a loop before CNN goes off the air for the very last time.

The video was unearthed by an intern in 2009 and has been confirmed to be 100% authentic. With geopolitical tensions rising and natural disasters ravaging the planet, let’s hope we never see this on TV during our lifetimes!

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

The internet is awash with truly chilling shark footage; from cage-dive encounters to unexpected attacks, there’s plenty to inspire you to stay on dry land—forever! Some recent footage hit YouTube, however, that takes the inherent intensity of an apex-predator attack and multiplies it exponentially!

Imagine going on a mission of exploration to unimaginable depths, where new discoveries come with unimaginable terrors. Such was the case for a team of marine biologists who took a mini-sub into the Abyss to find out what happens to whale carcasses on the ocean floor.

According to BoingBoing.net: “The Blue Planet II team dive to over 700 meters to see what happens to a whale carcass on the seabed. Whilst filming sharks as they feast, the sharks start to take a worrying interest in the submarine!”

The video below combines the claustrophobic intensity of a horror movie with the primal dread of what lies beneath. It will put you inside a mini-sub as it’s surrounded by gigantic, hungry, territorial sharks! Even when they’re not attacking the sub, the sounds of them beasts chomping on decaying whale flesh is pure nightmare fuel. Have a watch and let us know what you think in the Comments section!

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

To horror fans who came of age in the 1980s, the line above instantly evokes memories of Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the opening scene from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

Halloween and Haunted Houses go together like graveyards and tombstones, and horror fans delight in manifestations of this enduring genre trope. From huge, destination events like Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios & Knotts Scary Farm to local Ma & Pa operations, October offers brave thrill seekers the opportunity to face a bevy of things that go bump in the night.

One of the most recent haunted house movies, Amityville: The Awakening, is available to watch for free now on Google Play. It’s a surprisingly solid entry in the loosely connected Amityville Horror franchise, one that delivers some serious scares. Peep the trailer and synopsis below.

Official Synopsis: A single mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) moves into a new home with her three children, but the miraculous recovery of her previously comatose teenage son (Cameron Monaghan) leads to a series of sinister events that leave the frightened family fighting for their lives. Bella Thorne and Kurtwood Smith co-star.

You may have seen the most recent haunted house horror movie, but what about the very first? You’ll have to go back to 1908 for Segundo de Chomón’s La Maison Ensorcelée aka The House of Ghosts. It’s only 6-minutes long, but it packs a surprising wallop! Not only does it ooze with vintage Halloween creepiness, it’s one of the earliest examples of stop-motion animation—a method of filmmaking that never fails to unnerve.

You can find La Maison Ensorcelée in its purest form on YouTube, but I found a version that’s even scarier than the original. Back in 2014, audio expert Enrico Nicola Cascavilla gave The House of Ghosts a chilling soundscape that ups the spookiness exponentially. Not is Cascavilla’s version a perfect bite-sized creeper, it makes an ideal backdrop for Halloween festivities! Having a party or running your own haunt? Play La Maison Ensorcelée on loop in the background!

Happy Halloween, horror fans; have a safe and happy holiday!

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary? Mickey Goes to Hell aka Suicide Mouse

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

To horror fans who came of age in the 1980s, the line above instantly evokes memories of Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the opening scene from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

Today’s exploration is an oldy-but-goody, something plucked from the intersection of cursed videos and Disney-related conspiracy theories. “Mickey Goes to Hell” aka “Suicide Mouse” is a years-old internet enigma, but as opposed to most urban legends associated with lost media, this footage actually exists. Whether it’s authentic or created after the legend became popular is, of course, a topic of fierce debate.

Here’s the scoop on Suicide Mouse in its entirety; this original story appeared in 2010 on a now-defunct chat room, but has been saved  and published (typos and all) by Snopes:

So do any of you remember those Mickey Mouse cartoons from the 1930s? The ones that were just put out on DVD a few years ago? Well, I hear there is one that was unreleased to even the most avid classic disney fans. According to sources, it’s nothing special. It’s just a continuous loop (like flinstones) of mickey walking past 6 buildings that goes on for two or three minutes before fading out. Unlike the cutesy tunes put in though, the song on this cartoon was not a song at all, just a constant banging on a piano as if the keys for a minute and a half before going to white noise for the remainder of the film. It wasn’t the jolly old Mickey we’ve come to love either, Mickey wasn’t dancing, not even smiling, just kind of walking as if you or I were walking, with a normal facial expression, but for some reason his head tilted side to side as he kept this dismal look. Up until a year or two ago, everyone believed that after it cut to black and that was it. When Leonard Maltin was reviewing the cartoon to be put in the complete series, he decided it was too junk to be on the DVD, but wanted to have a digital copy due to the fact that it was a creation of Walt. When he had a digitized version up on his computer to look at the file, he noticed something.

The cartoon was 9 minutes and 4 seconds long.

After it cut to black, it stayed like that until the 6th minute, before going back into Mickey walking. The sound was different this time. It was a murmur. It wasn’t a language, but more like a gurgled cry. As the noise got more indistinguishable and loud over the next minute, the picture began to get weird. The sidewalk started to go in directions that seemed impossible based on the physics of Mickeys walking. And the dismal face of the mouse was slowly curling into a smirk. On the 7th minute, the murmur turned into a bloodcurdling scream (the kind of scream painful to hear) and the picture was getting more obscure. Colors were happening that shouldn’t have been possible at the time. Mickey face began to fall apart. his eyes rolled on the bottom of his chin like two marbles in a fishbowl, and his curled smile was pointing upward on the left side of his face. The buildings became rubble floating in midair and the sidewalk was still impossibly navigating in warped directions, a few seeming inconceivable with what we, as humans, know about direction. Mr. Maltin got disturbed and left the room, sending an employee to finish the video and take notes of everything happening up until the last second, and afterward immediately store the disc of the cartoon into the vault. This distorted screaming lasted until 8 minutes and a few seconds in, and then it abruptly cuts to the mickey mouse face at the credits of the end of every video with what sounded like a broken music box playing in the background. This happened for about 30 seconds. From a security guard working under me who was making rounds outside of that room, I was told that after the last frame, the employee stumbled out of the room with pale skin saying “Real suffering is not known” 7 times before speedily taking the guards pistol and offing himself on the spot. The thing I could get out of Leonard Maltin was that the last frame was a piece of russian text that roughly said “the sights of hell bring its viewers back in”. As far as I know, no one else has seen it.

You can check out Suicide Mouse in its entirety below. While I haven’t looked at the footage myself (why risk it, am I right?) comments from those who have seen it range from “That’s the scariest thing I’ve ever seen,” to, “It looks like a film school drop-out’s animation project.” If you are truly compelled and dying of curiosity, by all means—explore!
