For a brief period in 1971, a New Jersey based company sold novelty “X-ray” glasses through the mail via advertisements in the Marvel line of comic books. People who viewed their televisions while wearing these glasses reported seeing images that were “hellish” or “like hell”. It should be noted that this phenomena occurred whether the televisions in question were turned on or not. The company quickly went out of business and investigations reveal that the company’s address leads to a graveyard founded over 150 years earlier.

EDIT: Closing the comments on this one for now, as it seems this particular entry got on some lame spammer’s hit list and they’re leaving like 50 spam comment attempts per day on this entry and I’m getting sick of it! You’d think they’d figure out, after hundreds of tries, that the comments here are moderated and I’m never going to approve their shit.

Please wait…

      I’ve read this before, just can’t remember where. It’s vague, but not too bad of a pasta.

      And WHO WAS PHONE – I feel bad for you now. I lost quite a few brain cells just reading that thing.

      Ma Cherie, thanks. I have a strange Brokeback Mountain “creepypasta” that I’m tempted to post as well if nothing better shows up by tomorrow, haha.

      I wrote some pastas on paper and your really tempting me.Maybe I will,just need to pick the right one.Oh and I wasn’t bitching I was just saying that it sounded familiar.I garante you phone you’ll recive a decent new pasta by two days from now on and post it up on the forum.

    6. Ma Cherie October 11, 2008 at 4:20 PM

      Ahh, I’m sorry, Phone.

      But if you ask me, “The Prince’s Fresh Start” pretty much makes up for…ah…some of the other stories that have been posted lately. Thank you for posting that for us, and thank you for posting the others as well, even the ones that aren’t “brix worthy.”

      Anyway, good luck.

      Well, WHO WAS PHONE?, if I were the person who submitted that story, I’d feel somewhat happy, seeing as you just kind of sort of posted it.

      Not that I submitted that story.

      Because I didn’t.


    8. WHO WAS PHONE? October 11, 2008 at 3:56 PM

      Yep. Word for word =/

    9. Asshat October 11, 2008 at 3:52 PM

      ^ Sounds like a desperate attempt from a six year old to get some online credibility. Oh yeah, by the way, He failed. Miserably. (Was that a real submitted story? If so, LOL)

      Do you want a cookie, Dr. Creepy?

      Anyhow, the spring of creepypasta seems to be drying up. Lately, the stuff that gets submitted to me is either:

      a) Decent, but already posted on this website.
      b) Nothing more than a glorified religious forward (seriously, people are sending me shit that I’ve read from my grandparents, all FWD:FWD:FWD: style).
      c) Of this caliber:

      “you think that if u have a night light the monsters will stay away right? well it wont the night will get to u and so will the dark icey hand from under your bed. you may call for your mom or dad but they wont come.the dark has swallowed there sole already and they wont be able to move until morning so you think you can go all the way to there room before geting swallowed up by the dark well gess again the dark is every were and it will get you and this moniter light isnt enugh so dont try to take it with you cause this monitor is the last kind of light u will see ever now turn to ur left then ur right and by time u do that ur screen will go black and the world will here u scream!”

      Seriously, I’m not kidding. That’s the kind of shit that’s clogging up my inbox right now. So if you have the time to bitch and moan about how you could do better or have read better, PLEASE, take the time to send it my way – otherwise, I’m seriously at a loss here.

      THEN WHO WAS GLASSES? ^^ Not shocking, but still eerie stuff ;)

    12. Scar October 11, 2008 at 3:00 PM

      It lacks plot..
      Just.. overall bad. :/

      Oh and;
      WHO WAS TV?

    13. Dr.Creepy October 11, 2008 at 2:56 PM

      I already read this somewhere

    14. LampshadeChapstickFace October 11, 2008 at 2:50 PM

      There’s not enough detail for it to be creepy.

    15. Tato October 11, 2008 at 2:44 PM

      I’d hit that.
