Spooky season officially starts in October (sometimes late September, depending on your enthusiasm), but don’t let that stop you from creeping yourself out at any time of the year.
From paranormal experiences to internet horror, there’s no shortage of hair-raising clips out on social media. In general, the horror genre is one of the most popular genres to exist among books, games, and movies. Throughout time, it has only split into many different subcategories of horror.
Some people may prefer slasher horror, which is a particular kind of genre that includes gory chases and stalking. Some iconic examples of slasher films include Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th.
Others prefer to watch analog horror, which, as the name suggests, is watched through analog media. Some well-known examples of analog horror movies include WNUF Halloween Special and Skinamarink.
If you find yourself perusing on YouTube, you can also look into popular series like The Backrooms, Gemini Home Entertainment, and The Mandela Catalogue. You can find more about analog horror here.
Horror is just one category capable of raising your heart rate. Thriller, supernatural, mystery, and paranormal genres have also been notably popular. With dozens of horror subgenres to look into, you won’t be short on content.
Without further ado, here are 13 spooky TikTokers to creep yourself out.
Gotta love strange creatures running after you at night, right?
Lights.are.off features 3D animations of horrifying creatures that haunt the area around you. Some creatures are creatively imagined and brought to life, while others are warped versions of well-known characters like Patrick Starfish and the Easter Bunny.
If you love their work, you’ll be happy to know there is a game in the making. Check out Zoonomaly, a survival game on Steam.
Much of their content includes amusing, relatable, or something a little eerie. But we’re focusing on beeveekee’s series, Not Your Normal Kid’s Show.
Not Your Normal Kid’s Show features a cheerful host named Dottie, the elusive Tall Man, and the host’s mysterious mother. Sometimes, there are ‘special guests’, which may or may not be human. It’s absolutely not a show for kids unless you’d like them to be traumatized.
The series also leaves clues for the watchers to decode, such as backwards speaking, morse code, and messages hidden in flashes of corrupted screens. If you’re curious about other’s reactions, GTLive has a video to Not Your Normal Kid’s Show, which you can find here.
If you’re scared of what’s hiding under the waves, you might not want to watch this.
Well-known for their 3D animations, their content features many eerie underwater creatures from the kraken to the mysterious famed Bloop. Some of their videos also include monsters on the moon and a skeletal being towering above the forest.
If that’s not enough to creep you out, there’s always information on some of these spooky myths, since most stories start from some truth.
