* Being all alone in a dark room at night, especially when you're just a little kid with a hyperactive imagination. Even as you grow up, you're still afraid of the dark because you just feel like there is could be something there, which you cannot see, watching you...

* Tom Lea's painting ''The 2,000 Yard Stare'', currently the ThousandYardStare trope image. Made to depict the events of the Battle of Peleliu, the painting pretty accurately captures the [[WarIsHell nature]] of war, and damn if it isn't creepy as hell. The [[EmptyShell empty]] stare in the soldier's eyes pretty much drains any sort of humanity from him, making him seem more like a [[UncannyValley thing]] than a person.

** One ransomware that has set itself apart from the rest is "[[http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-wannacrypt-attacks/ WannaCrypt]]", which became notorious for its rapid propagation, spreading far and wide across the internet and even impacting hospitals and jeopardizing lives. How bad is it? Bad enough that Microsoft saw fit to release an emergency patch for Windows XP, an operating system that they stopped supporting in 2014, three years before [=WannaCrypt=] reared its ugly head!

* The National Geographic show Air Crash Investigation (aka Mayday or Air Emergency) can be either completely fascinating (on a scientific/engineering level), or horrifying if you're afraid of flying. One episode is particularly creepy, possibly even if you're in the former camp: A plane ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helios_Airways_Flight_522 Helios Flight 522]]) takes off normally and starts climbing to cruising altitude. As the captain talks to air traffic control, he starts talking more and more incoherently. The passengers all start feeling dizzy as well, and as the plane continues to climb, almost every one of them passes out. Including the pilots. The plane is still flying, albeit not on the course it's supposed to, and ATC radios military aircraft to find out what's going on. The military radios to ATC that the plane is filled with people who are completely non-responsive--except for one person, in the cockpit, who eventually acknowledges the military planes with a feeble wave. Then, a few minutes later, the plane loses altitude and crashes into the ground. Turns out that [[spoiler:a switch had not been pressed which pressurises the cabin, resulting in everyone succumbing to hypoxia after they passed 18,000 feet. The one person who was in the cockpit? A flight attendant who had stayed alive by using the oxygen masks in the cabin, then three tanks of emergency oxygen. He had been calling for help on the transmitter but nobody could hear him. The plane eventually ran out of fuel and crashed, and investigators later found out that ''everyone had actually still been alive (albeit in a coma) when it did.'']]

** The most creepy of all could be considered the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zGwwWyg2ko British Castle Castings siren]], just something about it's overall tone from winding up, wailing and winding down is simply menacing. Possibly stems from it being used to denote a nuclear attack in many works such as ''ComicBook/WhenTheWindBlows'' and ''{{Threads}}''.
