Though the internet is a goldmine of knowledge, it is also a dark and depressing place. Filled with weird and creepy content, it’s best to stay away from the dark side. To put things into perspective, the internet goes much deeper than most people know and the World Wide Web as we know it represents just 4% of networked web pages. 96% of the pages make up what is referred to as the “Invisible Internet”, “Invisible Web”, or “Deep Web”. The deep web/dark web is a place we all should stay away from. Some of the most violent, fraudulent and creepy things happen inside its boundaries. It is not easily accessible, though as certain tools is needed to access it safely.
Here, we are listing some of the creepiest websites which contain some of the more scary pages on the internet. Though authorities have taken down some of the owners for creating such pages, they still manage to survive through contributors.

1. Hashima Island: The creepy website that lets you walk through the ruins of a forgotten world.
Gunkanjima, meaning “battleship island” in Japanese, is an uninhabited island off the coast of Nagasaki. The island has been abandoned since the 1970’s and is highly restricted today. Though there are private tours provided, they are restricted to a few chosen spots. To be able to virtually see the ruins of the forgotten world, the website Hashima Island lets users drag their mouse through the streets and within the buildings. The website utilizes around 28,000 images and Google Street View to give an eerie feeling to its users.
2. White Enamel: a point and click interactive walk through a Mental Asylum.
The creepy website known as White Enamel provides its users with a creepy online game through a mental asylum. Users have to point and click their way around the interactive game/short movie. Most of the users describe it as leaving a weird, haunting and unnerving feeling. While playing, the background soundtrack is of an old man singing to its abandoned location. A total of seven stories are to be cleared to complete the game. I would possibly stay away from this, since I don’t plan to land myself inside a psychiatric asylum.
3. Creepypasta: a website filled with horror stories to disturb and frighten readers.
The name “Creepypasta” comes from the word “copypasta”, which is a slang used in the internet to represent blocks of texts that get copied from website to website. The website is essentially filled with horror stories, which are passed around different forums and websites to disturb its readers. The Creepypasta stories sometimes come with audio/video recordings with gory or shocking content. The famous Slenderman is a creepypasta-based character/meme which was originally conceived as part of a Photoshop contest.
