    3. Squidward’s Suicide

    When a group of editors uncover a lost episode of SpongeBob SquarePants called “Squidward’s Suicide,” they first think it’s a joke, but quickly discover the disturbing tale of Squidward’s final hours, complete with horrifying images they can never forget.

    9. The Slender Man

    By now, almost everyone has heard of Slender Man. Slender Man has given a name and a face to the concept of the bogeyman. Except that Slender Man doesn’t have a face…just abnormally long limbs, possible tentacles, and a tendency to hang out near children. Slender Man is a fairly new name for a creature that has apparently existed in culture for thousands of years, and he’s LITERALLY OUTSIDE YOUR HOUSE RIGHT NOW. RUN.

    Pokémon Lost Silver tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen. Whenever this strange game boots up, it sends messages to players urging them to leave. If they decide to stick around, they’re presented with a glitchy, partial Pokémon game, and a number of vague messages and threats about death. Whose death? It’s never quite clear. Maybe some random character in the game, or maybe yours. Probably yours.
