A couple was sitting in a movie theatre watching a scary movie, and the female of the group wasn’t having a good time. She’d obviously been bored out of her mind. It’d been a late showing, so there was practically no one there and the room was dead silent except for the screening. About an hour into the show, she feels a drop on her hand.
Ignoring it, she quickly shakes off the feeling and continues to watch the movie, trying to enjoy it. Another drop lands on her hand and furious now, she hits her boyfriend, thinking that he’d purposely been messing with her, be it spitting or throwing water on her. He doesn’t move. She pushes him harder this time, throwing in some obscenities, and to her horror, a red line that she hadn’t noticed until now, starts to seep red and then his head falls off.
Horrified, she lets out a silent scream and that’s when she feels the drip again. Looking at her hand, she can barely make out the color of the liquid, but it’s red. Nervously, she looks up and is shocked to find a body hanging directly above her, it’s neck tied within a noose and the stomach torn open.
Submitted by April. I liked it because it was reminiscent of some pretty classic urban legends.

THEN WHO WAS MOVIE??!
Drip. Drip. Drip…
I bet Candle Jack did i
candle jack mustve done it. AM I rig
It could’ve been better. Maybe instead of a hanging body there was.. nothing. Her bf was just dead and she ends up in the psych ward. Maybe she zoned out and killed him.
Sounds like the beginning of a csi episode
Not bad. My advice to you would be to rewrite this with his neck cut open, not his head off, and no hanging body. To end it, use something like “She screamed in terror- no longer at the body beside her, but the knife that was being pushed against her throat…”
was she the murderer? like a pshyco who blacks out kills then freaks out?
I understand no one on the internet really wants to read a novel, but why can’t the posters make their stories a little longer and more detailed. I could probably turn this into 20 page story.
I nearly fell asleep reading this. So predictable.
Honestly, I quite liked this one. Short, sweet, without a lot of fluff. No names to characterize the people. And, it could totally happen considering there’s a pathetically cheap theatre nearby me that is almost always vacant.
I just may have to do this for one of my CreepyPasta readings on YT :)
Her boyfriend’s always losing his head over something…
“Oh my god YOUR HEAD FELL OFF oh look a hanging guy o.o”
Heard it thousands of times >.>
Might as well have been a dude with a hook for a hand.
Sorry, found this one to be lame. Why didn’t the killer kill her, too? Was it because she wasn’t paying attention to the film? Maybe there was a ghost that kills everyone watching the movie because it was based on them and they were taking out their vengeance upon the watchers! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
That guy up there thought he might as well just
HANG AROUND FOR A WHILE
I LOLed at “the female of the group”. Also, this story is old. And bad, for reasons other readers have given.
what an inattentive bitch
WHO WAS HANGING MAN? = Geoff
WHO WAS SILENT SCREAM = Some bitch dat Russell punched in teh diafram (lol spelling fail)
I think that the real question is,
WHO WAS STOMACH GASH?
THEN WHO WAS THE PERSON WHO STARTED ALL THESE ‘WHO WAS ____________’????
It’s almost like you wrote the decapitated boyfriend as a minor distraction when compared to *gasp* the nameless hanged man that was dripping AN HOUR INTO THE SHOW.
THEN WHO WAS SILENT SCREAM
WHO WAS HANGMAN?
WHO WAS KILLER?
I’ve certainly read worse on here, but this wasn’t very good. I mean…I don’t know. It just wasn’t exciting.
I give it a D-.
XD @ Russell Crowe
how could she not notice them being killed? i mean seriously its not pitch black, you can see people moving around….
In true fact I found this hilarious because there are so many mistakes in it. BTW Russell Crowe does the best comments, no one can beat his.
You know what? Screw subtlety! Who needs subtlety? I mean seriously, subtlety’s for morons! [/sarcasm]
What the hell is with this : “she can barely make out the color of the liquid, but it’s red”.
This was featured in a horror movie circa the turn of the century. I believe it was Australian.
I was wondering what was getting in the way of the projection in the theatre that night! It all makes sense now.
One of the many creepypastas that I LOL-ed at.
omg that was sick i was at a movie and these people were making out in front of me so i threw popcorn on them
Lmfao this is pretty creepy, what the hell do you do in that situation lol.
That son of a b
i agree with wheat
THEN I WAS
This was okay but no that scary. Not my cup of tea. This story also reminds me of Scream 2.
Wow russell you must have fist of fury XD
I’d punch that screaming bitch in her fucking diaphragm. She’s ruining the damn movie.
This reminds me a little of the beginning of Scream 2
Candlejack did i
this story is super scary!
the movie was “scary movie 5” lol
Let’s see you do any better…
THEN WHO WAS … lame….
Worst one I’ve read imo…
BUT THEN WHO WAS MOVIE?
Post number 10 broke my brain rather than making me feel insulted.
I’m posting here because everyone else has.
Also, this pasta was aiight.
I believe she could not have heard the crazy killing sounds because theaters are generally loud. However, given her boredom, her senses to that which surrounds her should have been working properly, since her full attention was not invested in the movie.
The details caused the downfall for this pasta.
Oh…it was sooo close to being a good variation of the traditional urban legend…but the last paragraph was overkill.
WHO WAS NOOSE?
I WAS NOOSE.
No I wasn’t.
Sorry for lying everyone.
THEN WHO WAS NOOSE?
THEN WHO WAS CLICHE?
I didnt like this one…
Umm… Yeah, that one’s the worst one on this website I think…
Okay, so something dripping down on someone is blood. Now we’ve all heard this story before, maybe it was in a movie theater, maybe it was someone on the bottom bunk of a bunk bed. We’ve heard it. But on top of the sheer randomness of people being killed inside of a theater that has no background of these types of things, we are supposed to believe that someone was decapitated, and another person hung above her without her seeing? You could argue that the hanging person had been there, but then she’d have sat in a pool of blood and she’d of walked into a well lit theater with a dead person in plain sight. This was terrible.
Wow. The following people:
just killed the “WHO WAS PHONE?” meme. Cong
A killer sneaks into a movie theatre with a knife, slit’s a guys throat, and hangs another without even being seen or heard.

THEN WHO WAS….
