The Scariest YouTube Videos Online: Free Online Scary Movies Sure To Terrify

Updated on March 7, 2013

YouTube isn't all just dudes hitting themselves in the sack with nunchucks. Somewhere in between the videos of twenty-somethings talking about nothing to the camera and anime music videos are some terrifying movies. For those who don't want to let their fingers do the walking for them, here's a list of some of the scariest YouTube videos ever. These free online movies range from classic shocks scares to more existential horrors. Whatever they are, rest assured they're not for the weak of heart.

Making scary movies online is a precise art form, so if you like these videos be sure to give their creators some props, too! After all, a little bit of recognition goes a long way. Now, on with the videos. Also, be sure to check out some other great info about scary movies.

Username: 666

Who was the 666th person to claim their own YouTube profile?  In this free online movie, one intrepid internet citizen tries to find out.  Unfortunately, the mark of the beast is apparently not just religious myth and he finds the most unusual profile page ever.

Part Hellraiser, part Blair Witch, these is definitely one of the scariest YouTube videos ever.

The Chicago Pirate TV Incident: Max Headroom Takes Over

In November of 1987, a late night broadcast on Chicago's local WTTW station was briefly taken over by a masked individual who broadcast bizarre, distorted images.  Imagine sitting there in your living room, peacefully enjoying an episode of Dr. Who when all of a sudden this monstrosity comes up on screen.  No warning, no explanation, only confusion and unease.

The rare few who have been able to take over television stations seem content to just put up bizarre messages. This is one of them.

A "Prank" Gone Wrong

Juvenile humor meets horror.  What starts out as usual YouTube BS turns into something bizarre and terrifying by the end.  Don't be put off by the first half, the end of it is has a spine tingling pay off.  Definitely one of the scariest YouTube videos online.

Living Doll

I'm not sure what the country of origin is here, but this is certainly one of the creepiest YouTube Videos. Short and sweet, it is worth a look.

Playing Hide and Seek With a Ghost (?)

Like most free online movies with a horror bent, this video is amateur hand held camera footage. It really captures the feeling of wandering around a dark house playing "Hide and Go Seek."  Watch as things slowly get a little out of the ordinary before it ends with a truly unsettling finish.

Baby Laugh-a-Lot

An actual commercial, apparently Baby Laugh-A-Lot plans to sell some units through terror. This youtube video is among the most frightening I've ever seen and it is completely unintentional to boot!

These children are clearly being threatened. Their laughter is a sham. They were probably all under the evil thrall of that doll by the end.


FEWDIO hasn't been updated in over a year now, but for awhile they were producing some of the best horror short films on the web. With a variety of different directors for each short, these films range from terrifying pieces of flash fiction to fully formed ten minute stories with just enough room for a complicated story without ever getting too bogged down.

You can find their youtube channel here:

That slenderman stuff

Blah blah blah, we all know about The Slenderman now.

Marble Hornets

Everyman Hybrid

Soooo scary!

      Hmmmmm - ok well - ho um to all the above. I don't scare easy. Meanwhile, this is an old Night Gallery vid and Rod Serling's intro can save me any further words, except...

      don't watch this on your own just before you go to sleep if you're easily disturbed and DON'T, for Christ' sake, let any little kids see this (I'm serious about the kids):
