I actually like places like /r/creepy because I love horror movies, books, comics and so on. Things I wouldn’t get to see otherwise pops up on places like, for example this creepy post it note art work is great! This is by an artist called John Kenn and this is one of my favorite drawings by him by a country mile 🙂
One of the things I do like that subreddit is the way that it’s gore free, so I can find things like this without the standard blood and guts pictures you might get from more traditional horror movies. (Not that I don’t like traditional horror movies and the whole blood and guts genre – everything has it’s places – but I love the pieces of work that don’t relay on things that to scare people or creep them out!)
It’s also interesting to see that day-to-day things that were never meant to be creepy, but look creepy to people anyway. Or things have become creepy to modern audiences – things like ads that were considered to be completely innocent and/or acceptable in fifty plus years ago but look quite “off” and strange to us now. I do like seeing things like the strange toys that make me wonder why anyone thought they would be suitable for children to play with! That said a lot of kids do like creepy toys in part because they are strange or creepy so it could have easily been made that way on purpose.
Things like this is one of the reasons I actually like Reddit and ignore the various subreddits that can give the site as a whole a bad name. Coming across stuff like this that I normally would never have a chance to see makes up for a lot of the bad stuff there.
