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.
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.
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.
