I Am Sam



Estimated reading time — < 1 minute

I am Sam.

I have reached the gates of Hell. I entered without fear. I met the Lord of All Evil, and we made a deal. I got back to Earth, with a task.

I have to kill 665 people before I die. If I do so, I will spend eternity as a Demon King in Hell, with my own Legion to command. Of course, I’m very delighted by that perspective…

There is one condition, though: I cannot just kill random people. There is a trigger: if they hear one simple incantation involving my name, they are eligible to be my target. I managed to make my job easier, putting this spell into a book, a famous one, so that many people will probably hear it. I am very smart, indeed.

So, after you hear the deadly sentence, I will know you. And, when you are least expecting, you’ll see my shadow out the corner of your eyes. And when you turn your head to see what that was… it will be too late.

I will be waiting untill you hear my name again.

  1. He has copied this from Horrorgaems.net, this is a copy. I have seen it and read it before. I got scared the first few times, but now it’s just plain stupid

    1. Er, this was posted here a solid three years before Horror Gaems used it. It’d be neat if people actually paid attention to that kind of thing before accusing me of stealing from sites that didn’t even exist until the past year.

      Or if they realized that “creepypasta” comes from “copypasta” which means yes, you’re probably going to see the same stories circulating all over the internet, that’s kind of the point.

      Nothing against HG, it’s a great site, but this isn’t the first time one of its fans has come over and accused me of ‘stealing’ a pasta that was posted HERE years before HG even launched. It’s getting old.

  2. the ruination of a beloved childrens book for the purpose of entertainment and deep seated fear reactions. well played, Creepy Mole. Well played.

  3. DDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

  4. damn. anyone else find its fucked up that dr seuss planned it so he would mainly lord over children in hell? figure 1 parent to 2 children on average. 1 teacher to 12 children on average. sam has a shitfuck ton of victims. all about the height of your navel. maybe he quit when he reached 665. maybe he liked killing and made multiple deals with the devil, one deal per book. maybe he is lord over legion upon legion of little children of the damned.

  5. ho-lee-shiitt,,,i remember when i was about 8 years old, a voice always went through my head saying \"I-AM-SAM\" it was almost a robotic childs voice o-o

  6. I will not eat them a house, I will not eat them with a mouse.

    THERE’S A REASON WHY THEY”RE GREEN.

    Beautiful.

  7. I feel rather silly everyone keeps posting about how this is like candlejack and now I cant stop loling cus I have never read that story all that comes to mind is that old freakazopid cartoon where he fights candlejack
    we just need a cage and some pumpkin pie!!!

  8. @Azriel:

    Well Sam did make a deal with Satan. I don’t think it matters how many you kill. And it’s not like he was killing them himself, he just told others to go do it.

  9. holy magic flying carp on a broomstick!

    nice..

    good thing my childhood sucked ass meaning I’ve never read a Dr. Seuss book

    cookies for me

  10. David Berkowitz

    Why do I feel like this Creepy-Pasta wants me to buy .44 Bulldog and look for women to murder?

  11. Dumb.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more that 665 people know the book and also the movie.

    They should have chosen a bigger number.

  12. Haha! That’s one of the better ones. I love stories that are kinda creepy at first, then the last sentence makes your heart skip a beat and you get freaked out. I love it!

  13. I think I would’ve been better without mentioning the book. It took away from the creepiness a bit for me. It’s such a popular book that I think people would still understand it. All in all, delicious pasta.

  14. this story was good, but i dont believe it, i mean its like saying that when you say candlejack you will disa

  15. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    That was funny. :) Creepy? Eh, I guess I’m just weird…. haven’t found one on this site to creep me out yet, and I’m still looking.

  16. Azriel is correct. Almost all religions that believe in a supreme being ruling Hell (only one being) have them not as evil, just as the ruler of the dead. And the religions where there is a Great Evil of the religion, the Great Evil rules Earth if anywhere, not Hell. Hell is reserved as the place of punishment for evil beings – human and otherwise. And, as Azriel stated, any evil being with supreme power would not give an inch of it unless they HAD to, and I doubt a human would be worth the prize.

    So, yeah, I laughed. Not creepy, just “blah”.

  17. I am Iron Man.

    I have reached Pepper Pots. I entered her without fear. I met the terrorists, and we made a deal. I got back to America, with a task.

    I have to kill 665 people before I die. If I do so, I will spend eternity as IRON MAN, with my own suit to command. Of course, I’m very delighted by that perspective…

    There is one condition, though: I can just kill random people. There is a trigger: if they hear one simple incantation involving my name, they are eligible to be my target. I managed to make my job easier, putting this phrase into a comic book, a famous one, so that many people will probably hear it. I am very smart, indeed.

    So, after you hear the deadly sentence, I will know you. And, when you are least expecting, you’ll see my shadow out the corner of your eyes. And when you turn your head to see what that was… it will be too late.

    I will be waiting untill you hear my name again.

    I AM IRON MAN

  18. @ Temporary Wounds:
    Well fuck you too then! lol. I find this one all the more enjoyable cause I’m named while I can claim credit for the JFK assassination I’m responsible for Dr. Seuss’ famed childrens book… Or am I? Muwahahahahaha- cough

  19. dam u clever little devil you got us

    (very well written we liked it we expected something at the end that you read like the molly one but this is better cause we did not relay pay attention to the title)

  20. blackneonsharpie

    major lawls. XD

    I read the last line with tears in my eyes. It made my day.
    Would be scary if I hadn’t laughed so hard…

    (Man, I am having such a blonde day, I almost spelled “laughed” as laft. XDD)

  21. Hmm…is this the Son of Sam, or his father? I’d dread to think what kind of hell-spawned sumbitch would emerge if it was the latter.

  22. I rofl’d.

    Though as for the Hell and Satan thing, it’s ridiculous. Satan doesn’t rule Hell, it’s his eternal prison. And even if he was the ruler and not inmate #1, he wouldn’t let any of his prizes out of his grasp.

    Also, if the position of Demon King were a vacant spot, wouldn’t it go to someone who killed more people, like, say, Hitler?

  23. Okay, seems I aimed for a target and hit another. I should have noticed the book was 40 years old already, or at least put more people(maybe 1079, hm… 9_9).

    On the other hand, though, I just like this short style of pasta. But if people won’t post it… make it yourself. ^_^

    So, thanks for the comments, and sorry for the lameness of the implications… ^__^;

    (Also, maybe Sam’s killing post-mortem… Who knows?) >=D *Dun dun DUNNNN!*

  24. Eh. Would’a been better if it were based on something more modern. Green Eggs and Ham was published in 1960. I doubt anyone who read this was one of the first 665 people to read GEaH, so the scare factor is gone. No one here has anything to be afraid of.

    Overall, not a bad idea, just not relevant to us. Tell this story to those guys. They’ll shit golden bricks.

    Actually, wait, they’re dead.

  25. oh crap. That was actually very good. I read it once and laughed a little cause it reminded me of Dr Seuss. But then i realized. The book he was talking about was…

  26. Whoa, this wasn’t bad. In fact, it was very good. Short and to the point, just like a creepypasta’s supposed to be. And it leaves a lot to the reader’s imagination… brix were almost shat (takes a lot to scare me).
    9/10. Moar patas like this one.

    Also, WHO WAS SAM?

  27. Delicious pasta is delicious. I like the return to a more actually creepy pasta style as opposed to the short stories that have been getting posted. I loved the stories too, I just don’t think many of them qualify as creepy pasta.

  28. i really liked that movie, too. ):

    i think this was good, not too creepy though, but well-written. more interesting and thought-provoking than creepy. in a way, it reminds me of Candlejack, because anyone who says his name gets killed just like anyone who hears Sam’s does t

  29. OH NOES!
    Till he was saying the thing about putting a spell, I was wondering what that book was and what his name was.
    Until he reminded me.
    O.o
    Creepypasta.com is HAUNTED.

    Reminds me of the ‘Eisenhower’ one for some reason.

    Good job.

      1. Old comment, I know, but really who likes all those Candlejack comments? Almost every pasta I’ve read on this site has at least one comment about Candlejack, who must have a major sense of humour and a time machine to get to all those people and send there comments to annoy/ freak people! And look, I’m fine, and I’ve typed Candlej

  30. Ha, I liked this one. It can be either creepy or funny depending on how you take it. And this is just my personal preference, but I’d rather there not be any Hell motifs or anything related to the Christian mythos. Of course, it keeps the story more simple, but I’d like to see something different.
