* [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UT0mt-j4mYc This song]] from the educational website Starfall. Where to begin: The creepy, one-legged, weird-looking zigzag people? The unnatural-looking environment around them, with its giant sun that looks like the planet this is taking on is getting too close, the twisted architecture, lavender sky, and weird cactus-like plants? The humanoid-faced cat? The music, which sounds sad, angry, and insanely happy all at once? The fact that this is the final video in their alphabet series doesn't help; They don't end with a fanfare, but with an acid trip-sequel nightmare. And this was meant for kids.

* The graphical disk utility in Ubuntu Linux gives off a [[https://i.stack.imgur.com/62PeR.png very unnerving warning]] if the SMART test indicates that your hard drive is about to die soon. Worse yet, there's often nothing you can do save for backing up all your data and buying a new one.

* Norton Antivirus 95 used to have a particularly horrifying failure mode if it detected a virus in memory. Your Windows shell would quit with no warning, you'd get a page or so of DOS and then the screen would go black and display a giant mechanical spider in the middle. After a few moments of staring at that nightmare, the screen would change over to the same spider in a cage, with the legend "Norton Antivirus has detected a virus and has shut your computer down to prevent further damage." or words to that effect.

* Calling a bad phone number and getting that creepy-ass tone followed by "We're sorry. The number you called is no longer in service." Sure, it's fine during the day, but alone, at night, when it's quiet...
** It's called a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gw6cR_XTYg SIT tone]] in case you're interested.
*** The sound you got for dialing a dead line by accident in the days of rotary/pulse phones was much, much scarier.
* This 1977 recording of the East Area Rapist [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwNBLkTgoT4]] an unidentified Serial rapist/murderer who raped ''50'' women and killed at least 12 couples in California between 1976 and 1986. His trade mark was leaving disturbing phone calls to his victims before and after an attack. And unlike California's other unidentified serial killer the Zodiac Killer, Law Enforcement agencies believe the EAR is still alive living among est normal people....sweet dreams

* Related to the above, National Geographic's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxLBywKrTf4 Inside North Korea]].'' Everything from the poor living conditions to the sheer magnitude of brainwashing (the patients thanked ''Kim Jong-Il, NOT the doctors,'' for the operation) will make your blood curdle.
