    Pumpkageist Warning: I Shitpost

    Mind telling me how to find it, then, because searching turns up a load of unrelated horror films. I admit that I'm a Netflix amateur, though (it's UK Netflix).

    Ritual creepypastas were my introduction to creepypasta, and they're my favourites, too, for the same reasons. It makes me sad that they seem to have fallen out of fashion.

    @Lissiel I started reading the Gideon Keys and omg this is so very much My Thing. I'm a fan of rituals in all contexts and I enjoy that not all of them are necessarily horror, It's really well-done, reminds me of the better SCPs.

    Some of my favorite horror things:

    World War Z: One of my favorite books. I was scared of zombies when I was younger because of this book
    The Thing
    Silent Hill 1-4: It's been years since I watched/played any of these but I still listen to the music regularly
    Cabin in the Woods: Idk why I love this movie as much as I do. Probably the elevator sequence and what comes after
    The Secret World: My absolute favorite game I will ramble about to anyone who will listen. I don't even have triggers and one mission managed to trigger an anxiety attack. It's now one of my favorite mission. Also there's never enough good LGBT characters in games or horror.
    Repo The Genetic Opera (im counting it): So one night I was bored and asked a friend to name something on Netflix for me to watch. He picked this and I briefly skimmed the description and saw "sci-fi" and "dystopia" and an R rating. So I figured there might be some blood or someone says fuck more than twice. 30 seconds in "HOLY SHIT THAT GUY JUST RIPPED HER HEART OUT WHY WASNT I WARNED". and that's why we read the labels.

    @Mentarnes One of my friends is suuuper into TSW and I currently don't have the system required to play it so I kinda just absorb from them. Feel free to rant at me :3

    Oh man, I loved TSW. The starting zone at that beach town? Hoooooly shit, it was everything I loved. Body horror, eldritch creepiness, zombies....yes please.

    Got too hard for me at higher levels, but I heard they made things a little easier for casuals so I'm tempted to take another look.

    I was really disappointed about tsw. I followed the arg and the forums all through development, ate up all the screenshots and worldbuilding like candy, got my beta copy, would barely run on my computer and i couldnt figure out the interface to play basically at all. Like, im def not pro, but ive done my share of wow raiding and rpgs, and my computer is not top notch but pretty decent. And i just could not play this game at all. I never even got through the city intro area. I am still very very sad about this because it looks SHINY AS HELL.

    Those were pretty good!
    (I had read the one about the bodies around the blood pool before, and had been trying to find it again, so that was good.)

    Glad you liked them! The painting one freaked me out just because THOSE EYES, and also the one with the girls camping because something similar happened to me once. I've always assumed it was a group of other college kids fucking with me but still.

    Also the first one on the list. I just like creepy pictures, I guess.

    Camping ones always work for me cause I camped a lot as a kid with girl scouts. We didn't have any really weird shit happen (well, one of my friends says she say a ufo), but still.

    Spire in the woods was fantastic, especially with some of the content and the way it backtracked to reexamine things and make it obvious the narrator wasn't 100% reliable....

    +1 enthusiasm for Pontypool, I got linked to it after watching a fanvideo for Nightvale and it was wonderful.

    Also +1 for cabin!
    The elevator scene was amazing...

    re: gideon keys, I'm a little sad there aren't MORE, omg! I love them so much, it's amazing....

    re: Creepypasta, I've been hooked on skinwalker stuff. I used Anansi's Goatman Story as a campaign hook to get my players riled up in one of my RPs... they actually started doing headcounts, and it was a running thing with all of us for a few months.

    The first time I found it was a repost thread on /x/. Definitely one of my favorites. I've got a few more from nosleep and such squirrelled away on my computer, lemme go hunting for some creepypasta to supply.

    I was recently linked to a really large list of audio recordings of H.P. Lovecraft's stories. So if Lovecraft is your thing, you can check it out here.
