10 YouTube Channels Absolutely Addicting to Horror Story Junkies

Updated on February 21, 2017

I'm a Tennessee-based freelance writer with a passion for true crime, a thirst for knowledge, and an obsession with lists.

The art of storytelling has been around since man began. Through the centuries its been done in many fashions. With today's smart phones, televisions, and cars, it's not surprising YouTube has become a storytellers' community.


There are many talented narrators on YouTube which made narrowing it down to a top ten favorite's list difficult. I shall try, nevertheless, so grab your snacks, curl up in your favorite spot, and get ready to be creeped out.

1. Mr. Nightmare

True crimes, fictional horror, viewer submissions, and user stories from Reddit and CreepyPasta, to name just a few, are the topics narrator Mr. Nightmare presents to his almost one million subscribers.

With new videos uploaded each week, Mr. Nightmare's scary tales and animated reading style are certain to keep you up all night long.

2. Be.Busta

"G'day, mates; Be.Busta here..."

Coming to you from the Netherlands, Be.Busta is a gifted narrator. His smooth, heavily accented voice is hypnotizing and he has superb talent in choosing the share the best stories. Being very interactive with his fans - or beehivers, as they're called, on a multitude of social media sites keeps this YouTubers ranked as a top storyteller on the site.


3. Lazy Masquerade

It's a British Invasion again! You won't find this one on iTunes but you will find it on YouTube.

Narrating out of London, England, Lazy Masquerade brings his fans collections of short stories about paranormal and terrifying true experiences.

Lazy Masquerade is an animated storyteller as is evidenced by his use of many sound effects and his appropriately dramatic tone changes. The talented compilation of these aspects is what makes Lazy Masquerade a top YouTube narrator.

4. Phantom Librarian

Scary true stories, CreepyPastas, Reddit's "Let's Not Meet" stories, and user submissions make up most of Phantom Librarians' multiple uploads each week.

His deep, slightly raspy voice with an American accent adds a touch of creepiness to his narrations. Almost 30k would agree witch me.

5. Corpse Husband

Coming to us straight out of the place where nightmares are created: California, USA, Corpse Husband has a very deep, thick, slightly gravelly voice that is quite hypnotic as reads collections of user submissions, Reddit and CreepyPasta submitssions, and a variety of other sources.

Like Be.Busta above, Corpse Husband is very interactive with his subscribers via a host of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat.

Where can you find him?

6. Urmaker

Urmaker shares an entertaining story about how he came to be a YouTube narrator: he was working in a dental lab and grew tired of listening to his playlists repeatedly. Needing freshness in his earbuds, he began searching for narrated horror stories and discovered a few YouTube channels and subscribed But only a week into watching, he was out of new stories Today, as a narrator, he works hard to make sure his subscribers - or his Militia, as they're called, never run out of scary stories.

Where can you find him?

7. Hellfreezer

An even tone, a mildly deep masculine voice, and lightly playing music and other effects in the background makes for fabulous storytelling.

Where can you find him?

8. Mr. Spooky

Although his voice can be reminiscent of a game show host or radio shock jock, it's perfect for narrating the stories he brings to his subscribers daily.

Where can you find him? /channel/UC3F2LG-doW2ihPi2LnbaEGA

9. Unit #522

Unit #522 boldly declares a few on this list are the inspiration to be a YouTube horror story narrator. He obviously chose well because here he is on this list with them.

Unit #522 is an excellent narrator as he clearly pronunciates each with an American accent and it is quite skilled at building anticipation with reading style just as music does for films.

He may a bit greener than some narrators on this list but he's certainly one you want to subscribe - or become part of "The Unity" as followers are called, so you don't miss a single new creepy tales upload.

Where can you find him?

10. Doctor Horror

Doctor Horror is the perfect narrator to lull you to the nightmares in your sleep with a low-toned, softer (masculine not feminine) voice that mesmerizes the ears as it regales them with stories from subscribers' true experiences and CreepyPastas.

Where can you find him?

What is your favorite narrated genre?

      This is a good article but I am sorry, I laughed pretty hard when I read that Be.Busta is from the Netherlands...have you never heard an Australian accent before? He is most definitely from Australia. Even though the name "Netherlands" could also technically be considered "down under," I suppose. You might want to fix that. :)
