List Rules Vote up the YouTube videos you know aren't real - and yet...

Is there a better part of YouTube than scary video YouTube? It doesn’t matter what kind of horror you enjoy, there are plenty of scary YouTube videos that are certain to appeal just to you. Admittedly, most of the creepy YouTube videos that you find are complete fiction, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not fun, and that’s what counts.

It’s best to put these fake but scary videos into the context of explicitly fictional scary short films that you can find on YouTube, but with a much smaller budget and with far less stakes. If you’re not freaked out by the first few scary fake YouTube videos, there’s always 20 more coming down the pipeline, and they’re all worth a watch.

If you can’t get enough of the scary YouTube videos on this list then you would definitely enjoy some of the more disturbing YouTube videos out there, and you’ll enjoy going down the rabbit hole of the creepy lost videos that you’ll never see. Whether you prefer spooky witches, hungry ghosts, or clowns that pop up in the darndest places, you’ll jump, you’ll scream, and you’ll definitely realize that every single one of the scary videos that you’re watching is complete fiction. Turn off the lights, turn up your speakers, and keep a pillow handy just in case you need to cover your eyes. It’s about to get very fake, and very scary up in here.

The Ghost In The Attic


Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

Paranormal Activity really changed the game for YouTube videos, didn't it? Maybe this is just scary because there's a sad dog in the video, or maybe it's scary because of the anticipation, but either way, it's a fun little short that definitely doesn't feature any real ghosts.

There's A Girl In The Corner


Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

The lo-fi nature of this video makes it so much more spooky than it would be if it were perfectly executed, and who hasn't been scared by a random creature suddenly moving closer to you, paranormal or otherwise?

Never Go To The Country


Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

This video is definitely fake, but there's something about the way that witch moves while the driver screams unintelligibly that's deeply unsettling.

Elevator Ghost

Video: YouTube

Isn't this video absolutely spectacular? Not only does it have a genuine creep factor, but it has a replay value that you don't see in a lot of YouTube videos. Have fun trying to ride in an elevator ever again.
