Folklore [What Scares you?] Aug. 14th, 2012 @ 06:36 AM Reply

Now we all know that the world is no stranger to talk of paranormal entities and just down right spooky creatures of darkness that we all try not to think about while sleeping at night mine personally being the Slender Man ^_^

But lately i have grown an interest to know what others fears are... whether it be the Reknown 'Slender Man!' or do 'Ghosts and Spirits' concern you more!

hell... maybe even Big Foot... the Abominable Snowman?

Im interested in all your fears >:)

This topic is not only aimed at learning about others fears but also to open up the world of spooky creatures up abit more, i know its probably a good thing to some but in my opinion these scary legends need to be shared and learned about more ;)

So please share your stories, Scary Moments, Fears im interested in everything people have to say.

Slender Man is a retarded myth, the only thing that scares me is being taken to the vet. Shit is terrifying.

I wonder if you know about how he was made as part of a contest for scary stories, and how in that original story he was only 7 feet tall?

That's like saying that someone wrote a fanfiction about some shitty cartoon and it somehow contributed to the plot of the actual show.

Are you mentally challenged, or just plain stupid, because I seem to recall you saying something about a shitty cartoon, and you just indirectly called it retarded....

In all seriousness, are you retarded?

Well I find most folklore retarded and completly unnecessary due to the fact that they were just stories to stop kids from running around in the woods at night.

So yeah don't really know what scares me but I do get the involuntary fear impulse of shadows and figures when out walking in the dark but never the conscious fear.

Being possessed. Obviously demonic powers are great and all, but you don't control it.
I have seen a few excorcisms in my life and I have to say, it doesn't look good for the demon and neither for the host.
Also killing your own family doesn't sound like fun.

Pyramid head from Silent Hill scared the shit out of me. I can't stand things that look unreal even if its not meant to be scary. So that on top of the fucked up nature of this.. thing didn't help. If it wasn't for that huge dark mask and weapon, I probably wouldn't even care at all. Here come the nightmares again..

Well, I guess for Irish folklore you've got the Banshee, which is pretty creepy. I've only ever been to one place where there's supposed to have been one, the fields of Rathlin Island, which is a small island off the coast of Northern Ireland. Probably would've been scarier if I was there at night, though.

Anywho, they scream whenever someone's about to die and the one on Rathlin Island apparently makes a "thin screeching sound like the wail of a woman and the moan of an owl".

That's all I've got for folklore, though. I guess my biggest fear's being alone.

Chupacabra absolutely terrifies me.

Not so much in the "lizard" form that was earlier reported, but the canid like monster that is common in sightings today. I used to be really scared of dogs, but today it's limited to coyotes, wild dogs, wolves, and chupacabras (if such a thing exists, which i doubt yet ponder at the same time).
