Wanna See Something REALLY Scary

“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.

While The Blair Witch Project, released in 1999, didn’t invent the found footage subgenre of horror, it certainly popularized the concept, making it a common trope throughout the 2010s. The idea of finding misplaced film or video that reveals a terrifying truth is instantly compelling, and films like The Ring and Sinister have taken this concept outside of the found-footage arena, promoting the concept of cursed media.

One of the main goals of the found-footage presentation is to blur the line between fiction and reality. From this perspective, it’s as though a filmmaker is acting as an objective third party, offering a “discovery” without validating its authenticity. And while there are indeed real-life examples of lost media revealing compelling or harrowing secrets (surveillance footage, lost cameras, etc.) has anything ever been unearthed that compares to the terror induced by movies like Blair Witch.

Perhaps.

The Paranormal Scholar is a YouTube channel dedicated to scientific, academic explorations of supposed real-life supernatural phenomenon. While the majority of their video essays end by debunking popular urban legends and modern creepypastas, they recently explored a potentially legitimate reel of found film—and it’s utterly horrifying.

According to The Paranormal Scholar, the footage below was discovered in the attic of a newly purchased home in Iowa around 1973. Unfortunately, no other significant details are known—which is convenient if it’s a hoax. The video looks almost too good to be real (meaning it’s genuinely disturbing) but the fact that it can’t be immediately debunked is instantly unnerving.

The subject of this supposedly found footage is one many horror fans find intriguing: Demonic possession. Give it a spin and let us know what you think in the Comments section. Do you know anything about this mysterious footage? Do you think it’s real or a clever fake? Let the debate begin!

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary? Obey the Walrus/Goddess Bunny

“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.

No series dedicated to the exploration of creepy YouTube videos would be complete without an entry dedicated to Obey the Walrus. First uploaded in 2005, it quickly became a heavyweight in forums dedicated to all things bizarre and disturbing, eventually gaining a reputation as a cursed video and inspiring its own creepypasta.

Watching Obey the Walrus leaves many profoundly affected, as it forces viewers to face the fragility of the human form while casting them into the pit of The Uncanny Valley. It features a thin and twisted tap dancer, unnerving music, and an unexpected appearance from the titular Walrus. If you haven’t experienced this viral phenomenon, and you’re prepared for a shock, give it a spin below.

While there’s definitely something about Obey the Walrus that feels exploitive, the history of this famous creeper reveals the dancer is Johnnie Baima, a professional drag-queen. Crippled by polio, Baima reinvented himself as Goddess Bunny and became a minor celebrity in Hollywood’s underground transvestite clubs in the 1990s. The footage is culled from a documentary about Baima’s life, directed by Nick Bougas and released in 1998.

In a case of truth being stranger than fiction, additional footage of Baima/Goddess Bunny performing on stage can be found online, and much of it is more disturbing than Obey the Walrus.

The video below comes from YouTuber How to Solve whose channel is a collection of all things bizarre. It’s a biography of Baima that reveals some disturbing details about the performer’s life and includes purportedly rare footage (most likely pulled from the Goddess Bunny documentary). The poor quality parallels many of the unsettling aesthetics of Obey the Walrus, yet it’s presented without any paranormal pretenses.

For another shock, skip to the 2-minute mark; the proceeding images may haunt you for a lifetime. If you thought Obey the Walrus was bad—you ain’t seen nothing yet!

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.

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!”

Wanna see something REALLY scary?

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.

Wanna see something REALLY scary?

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!
