The X-Ray Glasses

Advertisements


Estimated reading time โ€” < 1 minute

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.

  1. I like the concept, this creepypasta has potential for sure.

    A few changes I think would make for more brix shitting:

    Perhaps a few personal accounts. In presentation it seems very documentary like. Perhaps something along the lines of, “One man said while wearing the glasses he saw his (insert loved one) being (insert violent verb) by a (insert object, monster etc)” Not exactly like that, but you get my gist.

    Also, make the graveyard an abandoned building or factory that’s been closed and boarded up for years, making it impossible for it to produce anything. OooOOooOooO. Just my two cents, whoever wrote this though, keep it up.

  2. I like the concept of seeing hellish things through those X-ray specs from comic books but you write like you’re functionally illiterate. Why not have an actual story? Maybe in the style of an old news report describing some of the phenomenon,with people describing things they saw that are actually unsettling? I mean, you can’t just say “Hellish” and “Graveyard” and have people break out in goosebumps. Also you mixed past and present tenses, look that up, because right now its annoying as hell.

  3. BUT THEN WHO WAS MARVEL COMICS LINE??

    it’s basically from the ‘original creepypasta’ that iGasm (35) refrenced. but it’s a meme. apparently. i won’t go taking .everything. i read on the internet seriously.

  4. @ Jester and subLImal-
    If you go read the first Pasta it’s really bad with awful grammar, and the last line was “but then WHO WAS PHONE”
    or something like that. I think that’s what everyone’s referencing.

    I dunno for sure though.

  5. @subLImal mEsSaging

    Exactly. 8D

    And WHO WAS PHONE? is apparently someone’s username. Dunno about WHO WAS TV, or any of the “WHO WAS” things I keep reading in comments. O_o

    I’m new to this particular site, but am a longtime fan of frightening stories. Especially ones like these that make me desperately want the item described. D:

  6. subLImal mEsSaging

    Oh, and considering it was the 70s and all, the people might have just been high on some kinda drug while they had the glasses on xD

  7. subLImal mEsSaging

    UHm..this is good and all, but not necessarily creepy. And can someone pleaase answer my question. Why is everyone saying things like, “WHO WAS PHONE. or WHO WAS TV?” I’m confused…sorry im new ^_^”

  8. I must disagree with the naysayers, I found this to be rather likeable.

    Perhaps it needs a little padding out, but I can clearly see where it goes. Nice one, Phone!^_^

  10. mmmm i actually liked this :) sure sure it has not much of a plot… but the creepy is there. i was like o.O ooooo.

  11. Sending the pasta your waysssss. Sucks to have to mod on pastas without the grammer included.

    This story is decent.

  12. wow.. this is different really short too, I’m tempted to write some creepypastas and send them to you.

  13. WHO WAS PHONE, why not issue a challenge for people to write creepypasta under various themes or topics, and then make a competition of it? The only prize need be the kudos of coming first? It’s not too hard to put a little voting thingy in, and i’m sure it’ll get people writing?

  14. Phone, I just sent in a SHITLOAD of pasta. Like…seriously, a shitload. So you won’t be hurting for at least a little while. (:

  15. 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.

  16. Dr. Creepy – make sure to shoot them over to me via [email protected]. I’m looking forward to it!

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    Seriously.

  20. ^ 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)

  21. 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.
