Posts Tagged ‘Creepypasta’

So I regularly see things come up about this story (and if you do like this PLEASE remember this is MY rant/opinion and I don’t discredit YOU as a person when I generalise, each to their own). It is described as a ‘creepypasta’ by quite a lot of people though you can easily find just as many negative comments about it too. I had seen enough comments about it on my random internet surfing that it seemed it was time to finally read it.

Firstly let me get this 100% clear, it is fiction and anyone claiming otherwise either does it for attention or because they are gullible. You won’t find any credible or real sightings for it. It is the same type of thing as slenderman, sightings are faked and are for the support of the media to go with the tale, nothing more. Of course searching serial killer is going to bring up results…

So it seems that the first emergence of this tale comes from Sesseur on Youtube, then Lyceum514 and LOLSKELETONS wrote the first fictions or ‘creepypasta’. Since then ‘Jeff’ has been given artwork and people’s interpretations with a female version called ‘Jane’ the Killer which is generally given poor support, as a Mary Sue.

Sesseur posted a video with a story, part of it was Jeff doing the world a favour, and killing the humans that infest this world. I am not making this up, I despair, anyway I shall carry on. So apart from a bunch of images that anyone can get off the internet the story progresses to say that he was using a gallon of acid to clear out his bath and slipped on some soap, this resulted in him splashing acid over his face. At this stage I am thinking a better name would be careless Jeff.

Neighbours then rushed him to hospital, no-one wondered why this kid used acid to clean a bath or even spot this series of killings? He’s ridding people how? Yeah I am really reading too much into it I know. So his brother, Lui, the visits him in hospital to find Jeff is a man that has been changed forever.

That was the sum of the video and there was a photo-shopped face with big, wide eyes and a red smile with white skin. So I will get on to that more later but for now it’s a short, pretty rough story, with some pics on Youtube.

There are a few theories, including that the video was made to hype up Saw, the white face etc but I don’t see how an unknown channel and poorly word video could be used for that. Anyhoo the story has since been fleshed out. Summary:

Jeff the Killer has a hobby of murdering people to satisfy his bloodlust. The urges were apparently there from about the age of ten, he had never acted on those urges. His brother Liu is said to have helped to contain this, but the parents never connected with Jeff.

At around 13 years old the family move home and he feels a bizarre pain. The pain comes again on the next day and he beats up three bullies who were harassing him and his brother. The next day he confesses to the police when they come to the door, to stop Liu from getting in trouble he confesses but then Liu steps forwards and confesses. From there on Liu is taken to Juvenile detention for a year and Jeff is depressed by it.

At a birthday part, the family were invited too, Jeff seems happier and is playing with younger children outside. The same bullies (around 12 and 13 years old) come back to take their revenge and it leads to Randy (main bully) attacking Jeff as the other two bullies (Troy and Keith) hold up the rest of the party at gunpoint.

Jeff gets that ‘feeling’ and it somehow leads to his mind snapping, permanently, he kills Randy. He turns on Troy but doesn’t manage to finish off Keith, Keith then sets him on fire via some bleach that gets spilled and Vodka that Randy had smashed over his head during the fight, the combination is set on fire with a lighter.

Jeff wakes up in hospital with his head wrapped in bandages and when they are removed he sees his face and that it is permanently changed. His face is white and his lips are bright red, he is delighted by this and begins to laugh maniacally and tell them it is wonderful. For some reason the doctor says this is normal and it’s because of the painkillers, Jeff is sent home.

Late that night his mother goes to the bathroom, she finds Jeff there carving a permanent smile in his face and then burns off his eye-lids to see his wonderful face all the time. (Join the selfie craze it would be less painful etc). Jeff’s mother then runs to tell her husband that this has happened and to tell him that he needs to kill Jeff, Jeff stops her and he guts both of this parents. Liu wakes up and Jeff goes him, plunging a knife into his chest saying ‘just go to sleep’.

Sometime later an unknown killer goes on a spree and a lone survivor gives the description of this teen, Jeff. From there it is left to the reader to work out what happened.

Right so there you go, so for the record I am NOT a fan of this so evidently my opinions come with bias and so here I go with whys and what-have-you’s.

  • There are some that say he is based on Jeffrey Dahmer, clearly this is not the case.

  • All the supposed sightings are fake, overly imaginative people of at best others pulling pranks or trying to scare people. At best you could argue the longer it goes on the more there is a chance for a Tulpa, but I am giving this too much credit that way.

  • The dialogue is poorly written and switches tense so poorly that it can be hard to follow:

The kid landed and turned back to them. He kicked his skate board up and caught it with his hands. The kid seems to be about twelve; one year younger than Jeff. He wears a Aeropostale shirt and ripped blue jeans.”

Jeff screamed and fell to his knees. Randy started kicking him in the face. After three kicks Jeff grabs his foot and twists it, causing Randy to fall to the ground. Jeff stood up and walked towards the back door. Troy grabbed him.”

  • I will however say that it is not like they set out to be professional writers but it irks a lot of people when this thing is called a Masterpiece. It really isn’t.

This label of masterpiece is pretty much what has leant me towards looking into some of the faults of the tale, it’s the same sort of thing as telling me that Twilight’s a good vampire series over the likes of Dracula etc. It’s my opinion, I am merely providing it.

Jeff himself is said to feel pain and snaps, you could take this as a psychotic break making him a disorganized serial killer. He is not mission orientated, other than killing everyone, so it’s hedonistic or thrill killing. Basically for no reason at all this teenager goes on some murder spree.

So what about his burnt eyes and his face? I am going to use Muriatic Acid as it is the most commonly mentioned in regards to cleaning so here we go: acid burns do not turn you into a Goth! The idea that there is an acid that would leave you with plain white skin over pain, skin grafts and at risk of infection is absurd. For me, the better plot would have been that the disfigurement was the driving reason for the spree, the pain is so bad they he cannot work out a release unless he causes suffering to others. Slipping on soap and being chemically burnt, or bleach and vodka, won’t give you porcelain skin. Sorry folks, I am the bearer of obvious news.

Burnt/Cut off eyes, the serial killer without eyes? Well he’d spend more time applying eye-drops than being an effective killer. There are people that have lived without eye-lids for varying reasons but the victims of this have to ensure they keep their eyes wet all the time until an operation to place eye-lids back on is successfully done. Oh and more information for you, as Jeff is male, the scrotum makes the best tissue match for eyelids. Jeff’s eventual match up of scrotums for eye-lids is not really frightening me…

Are his parents the dumbest people to accidentally pro-create? The names of the brothers don’t have any cultural match and read like a manga/fanboy badfic +10. They seem unphased by their two children involved in a stabbing, and if your kid is manically happy about permanently being disfigured after killing two children then you would argue with a doctor sending him home wouldn’t you? Also aren’t the fictional doctors in this utterly crap too? This mother sees her kid in the bathroom but doesn’t try to stop him or try to talk to him? She runs off to try and get her husband to kill him? Man these 2:4 parents are utterly crazy!

So I guess by now I really have made my point, the flawed story is over-rated for many reasons in my opinion. If you enjoy it and disagree then fair enough but you won’t be persuading me from my current train of thought, sorry.

So the picture – well the original is a photoshop of someone with a distorted face, white skin and bold wide smile with red lips.

Now I am not the type to go on 4chan or reddit, I usually end up there because I am being directed there with the research (such as SadSatan) and the following is probably a good enough reason why…

A 4Chan post said that they had found their sister in her room in tears, when asked why it had been due to internet bullies calling her out about her weight. She was saying that the pictures of her being photoshopped into this Jeff the Killer thing were really upsetting. That night, according to the original poster, she had committed suicide.

So what this true or another hoax? Katy Robinson is the girl that has been named, and when I looked around I couldn’t find enough to confirm or deny it.

The reality could be that much like Jeff the story could be fictional but there have been suicides directly relational to cyber bullying. Erin Gallaghar (Ireland) and Megan Meier (USA) both took their lives because of internet bullying. So Jeff is fake and maybe this suicide girl it too and unintentionally I just added to the click-bait on Jeff by searching this out.

This is not unholy a new subject but I was asked to cover this one by a friend and so here goes! Tara is an android, a robot who can be found by looking around on the general internet. The most often is a cut down clip of her singing “I feel fantastic”. Tara is a blond-haired an blue eyed female android and my friend asked me to look into the rumours and the information about her.

In advance I’d like to say I do not really find it all that creepy to watch her. I found Tara to be an interesting project, someone who is passionate about making robotics and used the internet to show off their work. The creator is John Bergeron and he posted Tara and other projects in the website androidworld.

Tara is a full-body project but on his original site he had a hand, which in my view, explains the building process on a smaller project size. The hand is mostly metal on the inside, it has a removable glove, made of synthetic rubber in order to try and create a fleshy look. The hand has DC motors and uses analogue chips and at the time of undertaking it I think it looked like a rather cool project. Videos of both Tara and his other two hand-styled robot projects that were all made available on VHS.

John Bergeron seems to have been a creative man on his side, he has since taken it down although its being geocities it’s pretty much a defunct server. At one point on the site he had offered up the purchase of a robotic voice for use to greet visitors for something like theme parks or reception type affairs. If you had a personal computer you should link this up and create the messages you wanted for your guests. The software program could be used to create an interactive experience for the guests and you could download a sample of the voice.

You could make an offer to buy the project too, there was no listed price but as someone who works in the bespoke product market this should not necessarily be seen as something unusual. However you would get the following things for the purchase:

  1. Robot you can use for display as the “greeter”, for indoor use only.

  2. Intelligent chat program.

  3. Tech Support to set up the software.

You would have collected this directly from Bergeron as it was a heavy set of equipment, and he was listed in the Vermont, USA area. To me this also goes to show you that Bergeron is an electronics type of gent with a vision that is nothing dissimilar to ChihiraAico by Toshiba. If you haven’t seen her before here is the relevant video:

 and yes I have deliberately picked the version of her singing, Creepy or cool? Same kind of scenario here.

So what about Tara and why is she on this blog? I think it helps to see what other information is out there, not to mention there is a Creepypasta so of course it’s already a bunch of fiction. As I said I don’t think that she is creepy, I think that she is an interesting project on a scientific level.

  1. Tara was made by a serial killer who dressed her in his victims clothing. The killer loved the noises his victims make, to the point of having her sing about it hence “I feel fantastic” and the shots of the gardens are of places his victims are buried. When the robot stopped singing the victim was dead or the cries were transformed into her singing (take your pick).

  2. The creator of Tara had put up that he was in the process of doing some upgrades and when he finished she killed him. The reason he went quiet is because Tara killed him and now she is out wandering around somewhere.

Well let us be fair both are wrong, John Bergeron is very much alive and has been contacted, and understandably refused to discuss the project with random strangers. I am sorry to say this to those people out there that have rang him, you are quite invasive to expect a man to take a call and just explain away what is obvious nonsense. If I am ever proven wrong well I will (if alive) redact that statement.

Tara’s listing can be found on www.androidworld.com/prod10.htm and explains that she was built for about $2,000 and is 5 Feet and 10 inches, she is described as anthropomorphic. It says that Tara cannot walk about, so how is she wandering amongst us now unless she’s had a very serious overhaul? She can also be found on a 15 minute long DVD with five songs on it.

You can purchase it on androidworld but I am not that big on the idea of buying it, I think for me a plushie of a BB8 robot is my limit on these types of matters.

There is zero proof that the creator is a serial killer, the clothes are most likely just ones he has brought for the purpose of cover over the androids body and if there was sufficient grounds for concern about it the police would have been involved. Most of this is utter speculation and fiction, the only truthful part I can find is the project of building her, the garden is probably just something on a VHS Video that was on there. VHS was not as easy to manipulate and clip as modern software…

To me this is just people using the android for a medium of scare factor, incorrect assumptions and in some cases just outright misinformation. So I hope that this helps you and if you can prove me wrong I’d like the actual evidence not just an extract from a creepypasta or listverse style click-bait.

Enjoy!

 

As unsolved cases go this is one that carries on being cited when I am doing my usual creepy tales and oddities searches. Lily Lindeström was found dead on May 4th, 1932, she was 32 years of age when she died. The Atlas Vampire is the nickname of her unidentified assailant.

Lily was a prostitute who was found murdered in her small apartment in the Sank Eriksplan, Atlas area of Stockholm, Sweden. She was known to have entertained her clients in her home which was a fairly small and dank little abode, and would have been referred to as a “call girl” as her apartment contained a phone from which she would also have been able to arrange her meets. She had been dead for a couple of days, her skull had been crushed and the detectives noticed someone had been drinking her blood.

She had last been seen by her friend Minnie Jansson (35 years old), she’d borrowed condoms twice in one night from Minnie.  Minnie was also another sex worker. The last of the two times Lily was naked under her coat and was not seen again for a couple of days. Her friend decided that it was time to go to see her and tried the doorbell but got no reply, this is when she raised the alarm.

The police forced themselves in to find her corpse on the sofa with her clothes folded up on the chair nearby. Her skull had been dealt repeated crushing blows but more gruesome than that were the signs that someone had been drinking her blood! There were traces of saliva on her neck and body, and so they feared the blood had been drank due to this and the fact they found a blood stained gravy ladle. She had been dead for between two or three days and they were able to retrieve the evidence of sexual activity before her death, they retrieved a used condom from her anus during their investigations. 

There has never been anyone brought to justice for her strange murder. The police interviewed her known clients, and it does seem quite likely that the last client she saw was also her killer. This case was before the days of DNA and so might well have been something modern forensics would have addressed but they could not, so the question of who owned the saliva and where all the blood went continues to remain unanswered.

As with many things in today’s media Lily has not escaped the trappings of being used as a creepypasta. It’s certainly not the worst thing I have ever read, and in fact with grammatical errors aside for a short story it reads pretty well. Though it’s up to you if you think it’s worth a read… the links there if you want it.

Vampirmordet 1932 Polismuseet

THIS IS AN URBAN LEGEND and is a creepypasta entry, it seems that like the slenderman creation the lines have become blurred for some. I have entered this on the blog because I find the story a good piece of fiction but I don’t want anyone fooled that it is anything more than that.

S the tale goes roughly – in 2010 the story emerged that the Soviet Sleep Experiment began in the 1940’s and that Russian researchers explored five political prisoners to an experimental stimulant to keep them awake and then watched what happened.

At first the men seemed fine, but the sleep deprivation slowly changed them until they were into states of paranoia. As the days with no sleep continued the paranoia escalated and it became frighteningly desperate as they screamed and yelled, this hysteria became contagious between them all and one screamed so loud it tore his vocal chords, after this they all went silent.

Three days after the scientists then went on to check their prisoners only to find a gruesome event had unfolded. Four of the prisoners had turned on the other, beaten him to death and then eaten him. The madness also led them into biting off their own fingers, tearing chunks out of their own skin and have even gone so far as to attempt to disembowel themselves. They had not touched the food rations left for them, the gas that was gone was causing more concern as the prisoners yelled that they wanted to be put back on it, they would NOT fall asleep again! The story carries on more horrifically and the link Www.creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/The-Russian-Sleep-Experiment gives you more of it.

However remember that this really is just a work of fiction. If you are tired go to sleep, if you are awake don’t try and gas yourself into staying that way. Stay safe my friends!

I have updated this with the youtube reading, it’s well done and gives you a good narrative if you are interested. This one is a good creepypasta because of the way it is written and the fact that it takes the idea that some of the scientific community would not consider human experimentation unethical.
