“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.
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!
