Nearly 600 Creepy, Unnerving, Awful, and Scary Wikipedia Articles

 In For Fun

Hi there, goblins and ghouls.

Let’s take a break from all the marketing and design chatter.

Each year in October, I get more interested in all things paranormal or just plain creepy. For the past 3 years, I’ve gone online to find and read a list of about 130 creepy Wiki articles.
There’s a list that’s made its rounds – passed around on StumbleUpon.

Well this year, I didn’t want to read the same list. I wanted new stories and new topics to pour over. I found several lists and forums online (sources below), compared them, and then found some of my own articles to add. I’m proud to say that the collection is up to 592 creepy Wikipedia articles to read in the dark. FAIR WARNING: Some of these articles are related to medical procedures, real crimes, and serial killers. There will be gruesome details and offensive content.

There are sure to be broken links, mis-categorized articles, and duplicates. Help us maintain the list by leaving a comment or emailing us at Have an article you want added? Send us the link with a suggested category – your suggestion is not guaranteed to be added, but we’ll consider any contributions.

Speaking of contributions, take some time to appreciate what Wikipedia allows us to do. We have access to a wealth of knowledge, history, events, and biographies thanks to a site that runs on DONATIONS. If you can, please contribute to their efforts.

I hope you’ll help me add to the list or discuss your favorites in the comments section. If you like interesting marketing and design news too, subscribe to the blog or follow us on Twitter or our Facebook page.

From myself, and The Kapeesh Team,

Happy Halloween!
