    How many of you have been tricked into watching one of this videos? You know the ones I'm talking about. At first there's a calm little video with quiet music, then it's interrupted with some scary face and scream. Post all your experiences with these "screamers" and any scariest ones you've found on the internet here!

    When I was 7, my mom showed me one.

    It was a car driving along a mountain path for a good few minutes. The catch was that something odd happens when it passes through a tree tunnel. It's followed by a mist. I watched, with my face buried in the screen, when some skinless freak jumps out of nowhere and scares the shit out of me.

    I was uncontrollably crying out of sheer fear for the next 10 minutes, while my mom laughed her ass off.

    In retrospect, that shit was perfect.

    The last person who tried that with me (a fellow student in high school) got my fist in his face. I can be very violent when terrified.

    I know exactly the one you're talking about. Believe it or not, it's a German power drink commercial.

    The best one ever used to be at this url. But it has since become inactive:
    http://home.attbi.com/~n9ivo/whatswrong.swf
    I have had that url memorized for years.
    The page right before it had a briefing. It explained that back in the Civil War, there was a couple living in a house. The husband was drafted or whatever. And every day, the wife would stand by the window hoping to see her husband return from war. When you click on the link (which leads to the url), it shows you a still image of a large dining room window. The briefing says that it is actually a live video feed with a webcam trained on the window. It says that if you watch long enough, you can catch a glimpse of the wife's ghost.

    My brother showed it to me, and I thought it was really a webcam and whatever. So I watched and watched for a few minutes, then BAM!! This horrible pale face with no eyes pops out and screams.

    My first encounter wasn't that bad. I had heard of them, so I wasn't too shocked. My mom told me to watch a video, and it was exactly as you described. The volume wasn't too loud, and the face wasn't that creepy. So I shrugged it off.

    I've seen videos of people playing "The Maze" on YouTube. They're fucking hilarious.

    Probably my second and last encounter was on a TGWTG Ask That Guy video. Never really seen any since.

    (But yes, they do scare the shit out of me now.)

    Yeah, I think I've seen that one as well. Though were I saw it it was set up to be a car ad that had something paranormal in it, and that's why you had to watch it closely.

    I hate those things. For some reason I always fall for it.

    I think there's something wrong with my fight-or-flight response. When I played the scary maze thing, I didn't jump or anything; my body felt a surge of shockwaves and I was like "WTF?", but I really didn't react. It's almost always like that with those screamer things - they freak me out but I don't visibly react.

    On the other hand, I seen this one video where these two chicks were making out and shit, and then... they started eating each other's... :poop

    It might've been. It was very traumatic for me, and I've been trying to forget it. :lol

    Here's one I rather like. It's not really a trick, though. It's more of a short movie.

    I don't even remember, I think it was years ago... probably in my early internet days.

    I DO remember it pissing me off though.
