I was wondering, what makes a creepypasta creepy and what kinds of creepypastas are creepiest, of course that this is a somewhat personal choice. To me a creepy pasta is creepy when the danger is not certain, of course that a maniac chasing you with a kitchen knife is scary but if you really think about it… is not that scary, hypothetically if I was in that situation I could just get the shotgun from my closet and blew the psycho to hell, but in real life things are more complicated but you get the point, the fact that I could kill him takes of some of his emotional influence over me. And since I don’t believe in ghosts I think I don’t need to explain why they don’t scare me very much. To me the scariest thing is the loss of sanity, there are some really good pastas that perfectly capture the feeling of confusion and dread of slowly losing your sanity. Since your mind controls your interpretation of reality you could go insane and not even realize it, and to me, THAT is really scary. Anyway, I would like to know the “theme” used in creepypastas that just freaks you the fuck out.
