I have a huge hangup on these. I remember my first one. *cue wavy flash back* I had just gotten the internet at my house. I was familiar with most things on here, but not all. I went onto a website, and I was wathing a movie called "kiko" It was a hand drawn series of still frames and soft music playing in the back ground. In the sky on the movie, there were japanese characters written, so I had no idea what it was saying. I lean in close to hear the music better, and trying to figure out what it was about when BANG! A face pops up and a super loud blood curdling scream was heard. Of course I jumped back and closed out the screen. I walked around for a minute, trying to gather my bearings. I felt so betrayed. I had no idea there was stuff out there like that. To this day I'm suspicious of every movie, every email, everything. I'll Shrink the window down real small and turn the sound off on suspect emails, wait untill they are over I'll see if there is a face sitting there looking at me. It really did something to me. I've come across many more over the years, but I haven't been fooled lately. I want to know your experiences with these...horrible things.

But would you fear the Reaper? The Church of the Azure Mollusk sys you shouldn't!

On-tpoic, I've never seen a "Screamer," unless you count horror movies, in which case too many to count!

You do not know me, but I am a juvenile delinquent. I do not trust authority figures, I probably will not graduate from high school, and statistics say my present rowdiness and vandalism will likely lead to more serious crimes. I am a dangerous fellow, and I am causing mayhem in this store. *pulls three jars of baby food from the top shelf, shoves them behind a box of macaroni, shuffles the Cheez Whiz in front of the Marshmallow Fluff, and tosses a bag of lady's shavers onto a bag of hamburger buns* There. I have now shamelessly destroyed the symmetry of this shelf, undoing hours of labor by underpaid store employees. If you could see me, you would be frightened.

LOL the same thing happened to me.. except it was a picture of a room, and it said something like "look for the ghost in the room" then like the face of the girl from the exorcist popped up and it was a bloodcurdling scream. haha i was so mad.

Haha all the times I've seen screamers I've been with a group of people so it wasn't that scary but I'm sure if I was alone and had the sound turned up on my computer I'd freak out.

The one that really got me was a "freaky car comercial" which featured a car slowly drinving around country hillsides for thirty seconds while classical music plays in the background. Then a zombie jumps out from the bottom of the screen screaming, it freaked me out, my volume was near maximum as the rest of the commercial was relatively quiet...

There are some pretty funny reaction videos to those if you search youtube. They are a lot more fun to watch...

hehe I've got to go look that up now.


yeah I hate screamers too. After I get one my nerves are all jangled. Then I contemplate revenge on whatever lame friend sent it to me... that always makes me feel better.

I usually have my speakers on mute, so they don't bother me.

My son loves to be scared. My brother put one of those videos on when he was about 3. He was sitting on my brother's lap, happy as a clam, watching the video...when it scared the ever loving poo out of him. I think he tried to run up my brother's face. When all was said and done, he turned to my brother and asked him to do it again. laugh.gif

I got my cousin with one like that and she actually cried. It was one where it's set up as a game where you have to guide the cursor thru a maze w/o touching the side walls. well once u get to like level 5 or something the walls get really tight, making my cousin have to get up closer to the screen so she could see it better, then all of a sudden, ARRGGH(Freaky Exorcist face pops up). We also had turned the speakers to max just b4, Lol, classic prank

Played that game before, freaked me out at first but now it's like a funny prank I pull on my friends it's hilarious. There's a video i don't remember exactly what, that's sorta got a banshee or something that just pops up after a while that'll scare you half to death.

laugh.gif I have a story for this topic. so about 4 years ago, I've just received new glasses. I was curious to see how I would perform on an online vision test. After playing around with that, I noticed a link for a color blind vision test. So I thought, "Ok I'll make sure I'm not colorblind." Anyways, I had to read numbers that were colored slightly differently from a differnt colored backgroud. Some of these pictures, you have to look close to the screen to see the color difference. Well, that's what I did, and when my face was practically pressed up against the screen, a woman with a grotesque, bloddy face pops up out of nowhere and screams at the top of her lungs at my face. I got to tell you, I screamed so loud that my brother in my backyard heard me. Almost scared the *bleep* out of me, almost! laugh.gif

Lesson learned, don't try online color vision tests anymore! dry.gif wink.gif laugh.gif
