You Cannot Rest Here

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.

Best Junji Ito one-shots!

Junji Ito is a horror manga artist known for having a huge number of works and for being very good at telling extremely unsettling stories. I recently re-read all of Ito’s work, so I decided to create a compilation post of his best one-shots.

Reading Ito for the first time is both riveting and disgusting, so if you are a horror buff but unfamiliar with Ito (or even horror manga), I encourage you to take a look at some of these shorts. You won’t be disappointed.

All come with a warning for gore, body horror, and disturbing images, with extra warnings listed in parentheses after synopses. You can access all of his works here. Enjoy!

My daughter woke me around 11:50 last night. My wife and I had picked her up from her friend Sally’s birthday party, brought her home, and put her to bed. My wife went into the bedroom to read while I fell asleep watching the Braves game.
“Daddy,” she whispered, tugging my shirt sleeve. “Guess how old I’m going to be next month.”
“I don’t know, beauty,” I said as I slipped on my glasses. “How old?”
She smiled and held up four fingers.
It is 7:30 now. My wife and I have been up with her for almost 8 hours. She still refuses to tell us where she got them.

If you’re reading this note, I’m sorry. I assume you’re in the same situation as me—that smug bastard drugged you and dumped you in these catacombs, with only a candle to find your way out.

I don’t know how many people he’s done this to, but there have probably been a lot. He wouldn’t spend so much time on it otherwise, would he? He told me the catacombs are a maze, and he’s set traps and deadfalls at every turn. But he promised there’s one safe way out, if I’m lucky enough to guess the correct path.

I’m not lucky. I’m just an art student, here on holiday. There’s no way I’m getting out alive. But I want someone to. I want revenge.

I’m sure you do, too, so let’s help each other. I still have my sketchbook and pencils. Before each turn, I’m going to leave them behind for the next person, writing down which way I went. If I survive to another passageway, I’ll come back and leave a page like this one. If I don’t, then it’s up to the next person to carry on and go the opposite direction.

Eventually, if we keep leaving breadcrumbs, one of us will escape. Get to the police and find that bastard. Do it for those who didn’t make it.

My name is Jeff. I went left here.

Reading the note by candlelight you feel a glimmer of hope, until you realize you’re reading from the sketchbook itself. Jeff never returned to tear out the page, and you’re the first person here since him.

You look to your right, where the dark maze awaits.

  • HE STOOD AGAINST MY WINDOW by reddit user sabethook

Link to story (x)

I don’t know why I looked up, but when I did I saw him there. He stood against my window. His forehead rested against the glass, and his eyes were still and light and he smiled a lipstick-red, cartoonish grin. And he just stood there in the window. My wife was upstairs sleeping, my son was in his crib and I couldn’t move I froze and watched him looking past me through the glass.

Oh, please no. His smile never moved but he put a hand up and slid it down the glass, watching me. With matted hair and yellow skin and face through the window.

I couldn’t do anything. I just stayed there, frozen, feet still in the bushes I was pruning, looking into my home. He stood against my window.

Any day now, she’ll say her first words.

My wife and I have been playfully betting on what she’ll say first - ‘Mama’ or 'Daddy.’ I can hear my wife crooning over and over while she feeds her 'Mama’s little girl! Mama loves you so much!’ Sometimes, she’s not even subtle about it - 'Say 'mama!’ Come on! 'Mama!“
I don’t mind it though. I still believe I’ll win. When we first brought her home, she would scream and cry and nothing my wife would say could calm her down, but I knew just how to hold her to help her fall asleep. Our daughter was a daddy’s girl - my wife needed all the handicaps she could get.
I sit our daughter in her chair and my wife and I begin babbling like chickens - 'Mama!’ 'Daddy!’ 'Say Mama!’ 'Who’s daddy’s baby?’
I pull the gag from our little girl’s mouth.
"P-please… what do you want from me? Please let me go…”
My wife’s smile falls from her face. With a heavy heart, I put the gag back in as the girl starts to scream. I take her back to the room, locking her in and shutting the lights out. When I return, I find my wife crying.
“It’s ok, honey,” I tell her, “The next one will be better. I promise.”

2.5 children is the average. I don’t know why she’s screaming.

“Have you seen my son?” the woman frantically asked the old lady across the street.

“No, sorry dear” the old woman replied.

“Have you seen my son?” the woman asked the local police officer, more terrified this time

“No, I’m sorry ma'am, but we’ll search right away” the officer responded while taking out his radio, trying not to look at the woman’s sorrowful eyes.

“Please…please tell me my son is in there” asked the woman to a friend of hers, which happens to live right next to her house.

“I’m really sorry Clarice, we haven’t seen him” the mother replied.

The woman searched everywhere, ran through every part of the street, screaming, “Where is my son”.She was crying, pulling her hair out of despair. Her neighbors, out of pity, helped her in her search

“JIMMY, JIMMY! WHERE ARE YOU! PLEASE COME OUT!”

Starting that day, from 10 in the morning til 8 in the evening, the woman would leave her house, looking like trash. She looked like a risen corpse; pale skin, frizzy hair, and her body growing ever skinnier. She screamed at every part of the town, “HAVE YOU SEEN MY SON?”

Alas at the second week of her search, everyone must have thought that she’d already gone crazy.

She went to the local police department again…

“Have you seen my son?”

The officer in charge left out a deep sigh, “I’m sorry ma'am”

The mother walked home, looking depressed. But as soon as she closed her front door, a smile painted itself across her face.

With a smirk, the woman whispered to herself.“I guess I hid the body well"

“Mom, can you watch for bugs while I pee?“ The little boy asked.

“Sure hun.” His mom said.

They were hiking on top of a mountain. The mom was depressed, although she did not understand why. The little boy stood near the edge of the cliff. He started peeing.

The mom was suddenly gripped by a cold vision of terror ahead of them: a single mom, alone, with no good prospects. So depressed. Hopeless.

The boy. His back towards her. So small. So innocent. So helpless. He zipped up his zipper and glanced upwards to see his mom’s face above him. A sad look on her face.

“I’m sorry and I love you.“ She pushes him off the cliff.

Ten years pass. The mom is now married. Well to do. She looks on from the balcony, out into the prosperous suburb she now lives in. Her new son, young and small, calls out from behind her.

“Hey mom, what you doing?” The kid says, in that tiny, sing-song voice.

“Nothing…" She says. She looks out. It’s so beautiful. She sees her son. She feels her heart break a little. He looks so… fragile. A memory resurfaces, of another son so long ago, but she pushes it away. That was then. This was now. Now she is happy. There’s always hope for new beginnings.

“Would you like to sit here?“ She asks, patting at the balcony, smiling. What a beautiful boy she has.

The kid just looks at her and smiles, the sadness noticeable.

“No mom.”

“Come on, you’ll see into your friend’s houses.“

“No mom.”

“Are you sure? It’s fun.“

“No mom. I’m afraid you’ll push me off again.”

Here’s a masterpost of other creepy stories

The Bloodworth saga masterpost

There’s a great series of terrifying short stories on Reddit’s /nosleep/ subreddit, all written by someone who goes by the name of Bloodworth. If you’re a massive fan of creepypasta like me, you miiiight want to give it a look. It’s a nice, long, mesmerizing read, and I think I breathed about twice while reading through the whole thing.

That said, TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR EVERYTHING. And I mean everything. I can’t delve into specifics without spoiling some of the stories, but you can bet that anything worth mentioning is going to be in there. Rape? Yep. Child abuse? That too. Anything funky you can do with a corpse? It’s there. Anything horrible you can do to living things? You bet. This series is by no means for the faint of heart–you’re going to need a strong stomach to plow through some of these.

Begin at the beginning. All are individual stories that stand alone wonderfully as creepypasta:

Then watch in horror as they come together in the main series:

Done? Finally, head over to the Wiki which contains everything from a handy timeline of events to character speculations, for your viewing pleasure.

The author’s Tumblr is here

If you’re looking for something just as long and fascinating, I recommend you check out 1000Vulture’s Penpal series as well, handily compiled into one long read here.

The Demon - queerestqueen

—————————————

 "Are you seeing things again babe?“ My boyfriend gently ran his fingers through my hair as I vigorously nodded, staring uncomfortably at the crouched demon in the corner and trying unsuccessfully to ignore the incessant screaming at the door, mimicking my boyfriend’s voice.

"It’s so loud tonight” I whimpered, my voice trembling as the voice brought on the usual paranoia.

“Don’t worry, it’s not real. It must be your med change, that’s why”. The demon dragged itself forward and froze again.

Warily, ignoring my mock boyfriend’s screams outside the bedroom door, I shook my head.

“It’s you, one of the voices. It’s you”, my hands tightened around his.

“Don’t worry, it’s not real. I’m here. The voices, the demon in the corner, they’re all fake, baby”.

I froze.

I never mentioned the demon.

There’s this new app on iPhone and iPad called Haunting Melissa. It takes you through a creepy story of the mysterious death of Melissa’s mother and what’s haunting her house.

It’s starts with a guy talking in a deep voice and blurred face, saying he needs to let everyone know the “real” story. Then instantly breaks to Melissa in her room with her friend, Holly.
So far, I’m creeped out. If you’re into creepy things and scary shit and happen to have an apple product, I’d go try it out.

Note: no screamers or anything flashing or jumping out at you as far as I have seen. Also, it’s free

Do You?

Most people agree that dying while being asleep is the best way to die. Peaceful, not signs of torture nor pain. My grandma used to say angels carry them, the ones who are dying while being asleep, to heaven. But sometimes angels can be clumsy and drop them by accident.

Remember the time you felt like falling in your sleep and suddenly woke up?

Hey sixpenceee ! Thought this might be of interest to you somewhat.

These two porcelain dolls have been in my bedroom since before I can remember. No one in my family knows where they came from, except they showed up around when my sister and I were born. The two dolls always end up in their stands near one another, and the one in the pink bonnet has fallen off of her shelf whenever we speak negatively about them. I think it’s all coincidence, I don’t really believe in most of the paranormal; I do think it makes a sweet story though!

!EDIT! While I was writing this, the pink bonnet one fell off her shelf again hahaha!

TRUE URBAN LEGENDS

The Collector
The Legend - The most common “Collector” legend is the neighbor who collects human body parts and proudly displays them in his basement.
The Truth - In 2011, Russian police arrested a man described in local media as the “cemetery collector”. The collector, Anatoly Moskvin, had dug up at least 29 corpses and made dolls out of them. The life-sized female “dolls” were without faces, and some were wearing platinum blonde wigs.

Dark Water
The Legend - A man moves into his new home and finds that the water coming out of the sink and shower is a murky black color. He later discovers that the black water is being caused by the remains of a liquified dead body.
The Truth - In 2013, the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles experienced some guests complaining about the water running black for a few seconds before returning to normal. The decomposing body of Elisa Lam was later discovered inside of the water tank on the roof of the hotel. Before the body was discovered, guests had brushed their teeth, bathed and drank the water for as long as 19 days. (Side note; this case is far more interesting than what is reported here. For more information, read this. Incredibly creepy stuff here.)

Shadow People
The Legend -The Shadow people folklore revolves around obscured visions or shadows of people that appear and disappear in the blink of an eye. People often report seeing these “shadow people” in the dark corners of rooms, after being sleep deprived, in a state of sleep paralysis, or after just waking up in the middle of the night. 
The Truth - In Fukuoka, Japan, a man who lived alone in his apartment began to suspect that something else was in the apartment with him. He decided to set up surveillance cameras and ended up capturing footage of an old woman coming out of his cupboard to steal food and sometimes shower. The 58-year-old woman was homeless and admitted to police that she had been living in the man’s home for about a year, lurking just beyond his eyesight in closets and cupboards.

The Killer in Cop’s Clothing
The Legend - A police officer knocks on a couples door to tell them that there is a murderer on the loose and that it’s important that they let him inside. Not suspecting that anything is wrong, they obey his request and let him into the house. When they ask what the murderer looks like he replies, “a lot like me actually”.
The Truth - In November of 1974, 18 year old Carol DaRonch was browsing through a bookstore when she was approached by a police officer who told her that her car had been broken into and she needed to come to the station with him to file a report. She agreed to go with him but began to suspect that something was wrong when she realized that the “officer” as driving away from the police station and not towards it. The officer turned out to be infamous serial killer Ted Bundy. Bundy tried to handcuff DaRonch but he was unsuccessful and she was able to escape from his car. Watch an interview with Carol DaRonch here.

The Body in the Bag
The Legend - A woman is on the bus by herself one night when she sees a stranger get on dragging a large, lumpy duffel bag behind him. She finds is strange but figures that her mind is just getting carried away because of the late hour. A few days later, she turns on the news and sees that the man is an escaped mental patient and is being labeled as “the body dismemberer.”
The Truth - A 56-year-old Cypriot monk was detained at the Athens airport after security staff discovered a skull wrapped in cloth and skeletal remains in a sheet inside his baggage. He told the airport security that of he was taking the relics of a saint back to his monastery. However, it was discovered that the bones were actually the remains of a nun who had disappeared from her convent four years earlier. How she died and what the monk was planning to do with the bones remains unclear. The monk was freed after being charged with theft and desecrating the dead, a misdemeanor in Greece. He was also suspended from his monastic duties for three months for going away without leave. Read the article here.

Halloween Decorations
The Legend - Several teens are out playing pranks on Halloween night. They are throwing toilet paper in the trees around somebody’s house when they see a decoration that catches their eye; a realistic hanged man. They decide to steal the decoration for their Halloween pranks, but when they go to knock it down, they realize that the “decoration” is an actual dead body.
The Truth - A woman in Delaware hung herself from a tree on a busy street around Halloween time. The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen by passing vehicles. The suicide went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration. In another case, a camera crew arrived on set to shoot an episode of The Six Million Dollar Man. While preparing the set, one of the workers went to move a dead body prop only to discover that “prop” was an actual dead body when the arm snapped off revealing a human bone.

The Absence

It was a stormy night.

As if Storm from the X-Men was near by, doing storm stuff.

Howling wind, sharp rain, you know, the stuff storms are made of.

Anyway, the two high school sweethearts pulled off the frontage road to find somewhere to wait out the spooky storm. After several dark miles into the seemingly abandoned town, the teens found a Denny’s.

“Thank the heavens” sighed Chris. He’d been on edge all night. Being a teen is scary enough, and he really wanted Matilda to like him, and on top of all that anxiety there was that crazy storm I was telling you about in the beginning of the story. And Chris HATES storms! “Let’s get something to eat!”

“Wait…Chris…I’m frightened!” whimpered Matilda. “I’m…I’m worried something terrible might happen in there!”

“Matilda, it’s a Denny’s! They’re open 24 hours a day and they serve anything you could want from a diner! It’s the safest and most delicious place to be in the county right now. Don’t worry, I’ll protect you.”

“O..o..okay, Chris. If you say so.”

Remember that storm from earlier? Oh yeah, it was still going like totally nuts! Stormin’ all over the place.

So Chris and Matilda ran from the car into the Denny’s, the rain shooting down at them from the dark, tumultuous sky above. Somewhere in the distance a bird made horrible noises. What kind of bird? I’m not sure. An evil bird, I would assume. Some kind of demon birds. The worst birds.

After the couple made it inside they were seated and served piping hot coffee right away. “Chris, you were right. I knew I could trust you. I feel safer already!”

Chris grinned at her and nodded. Safe at last. The storm stayed outside and inside the Denny’s was warmth and happiness. Even a man with a hook for a hand and a big clown mask was inside. Definitely not a psycho murderer, guys. Just a fun man with a hook and an affinity for clown culture.

The waiter came to take their food order. “I’ll have a Moons Over My Hammy please” said Matilda.

“Hmm, and I will have…a Grand Slam? With extra bacon?” Chris followed.

“Oooh! I would love extra bacon, too, Chris! Good call!” exclaimed Matilda.

The waiter stood frozen, his brow sweating, his skin pale and tight. “I’m…gosh I’m so sorry. We’re completely out of bacon.”

His words hung in the air like ghastly bats. Chris attempted to speak but he was so shocked that every bit of oxygen vacated his trembling lungs. He looked to Matilda, her face quivering, her eyes turning red with fear, and suddenly, breaking the heavy silence in the diner, she belted a Wilhelm scream that shattered the windows, the coffee pots, the water glasses.

No one ever saw the two again. And although there has never been a bacon shortage like that night, any time it storms here in Storm County, a faint scent of pork floats across the cities. And they say Matilda is out there…cooking bacon in the forest…waiting for her revenge…

If you grew up in the ‘80s or ‘90s, you probably remember Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a trilogy of short story collections for children, written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell.

These books served as an introduction to horror for many young readers and became controversial due to their frightening content. One of the countless people influenced by the stories is Cody Meirick, who’s directing Scary Stories: A Documentary.

There’s an Indiegogo campaign underway to fund the documentary. They’ve raised over $5,600 so far, and they have 18 days left to hit their $28,000 goal. The documentary is already in production, and the additional money will allow the crew to film throughout the summer and wrap the project up.

This intriguing documentary will explore the history and background of one of the most controversial works of modern children’s literature: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. In the 1980s and 1990s in elementary libraries across the United States these books developed a growing interest from boys and girls who were taken in by the gothic tales, the whimsical tone, and the ghostly illustrations. Now the Scary Stories book series stands as the most challenged children’s book of the last 30 years and a testament to the power of something that is often taken for granted: a good scary story.

An unrelated feature film adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is in development at CBS Films with John August (Big Fish) penning the script.

Unfortunate

Let me tell you my story. My story begins with Jessica.

Jessica always forgot her glasses. Too bad she couldn’t see me. Then there was Phillip. Phillip had long hair. Too bad it blocked his vision. Then there was Molly. Molly never checked underneath her bed. Poor Molly… Then there was you. You never did anything wrong, you were just too focused on your screen to see I was behind you.

Stubb’s Clubhouse: this was one of the first that I read, but it did definitely raise my love of murderous clowns

A Game of Flashlight Tag: when I first read this I thought to myself that is was extremely boring, but a few paragraphs in and I was emotionally invested.

Abandoned Servers: this one is a true shitpasta, I don’t think it can get any worse

Murderous Confessions of a Gazer: This one is intriguing as much as this is creepy, a must read that leaves you begging for more.

Barbie doll: this one just made me lose faith in humanity, a combonation of just flat out sick and horrific
