I actually have another spoopy story, this one is actually very seriously spoopy, at least to me. Also, this is going to sound like some /x/ tier creepypasta, but I swear this is something that I honestly remember happening.
When I was a kid, this would have been like 1991-1992, my parents took a trip together and left me and my brother to stay with my grandparents for a week. My parents had limits on how much TV we were allowed to watch at home but my grandparents didn't care, so basically all I did that week was sit and watch Nickelodeon from after breakfast until bedtime just because I could.
Anyway, I remember around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, Lassie reruns were on. One day, I remember sitting in my grandparents' living room watching as usual. My brother wasn't as excited about being allowed to sit in front of the TV all day as I was so he wasn't around. My grandparents were off somewhere too so it was just me in the room. This episode of Lassie comes on, the title was The Haunted Farm. For anyone who's never seen Lassie before it was this old TV show from the 50s about a kid named Timmy and his dog, the kid was always getting into trouble and then Lassie would save the day somehow.
I specifically remember several things about this episode, one of which was the title card that read "The Haunted Farm" displaying white letters over black and white footage of an old country road. I don't remember what the setup was, but in the episode Timmy decides to go check out this old abandoned farm, by himself like a retard. I think his friends dared him to go, that's usually how these kinds of stories work. He goes into the barn, and it's this tracking shot of Timmy's feet walking along the floor. I very clearly remember this part. The floor is wood planks, with hay scattered around. The camera slowly follows Timmy's feet as he's walking. That corny 50's dramatic music is playing while he's walking. There's this old fashioned looking overturned wheelbarrow, I remember what the wheel looked like. He walks past the wheelbarrow and he sees this creepy-ass scarecrow thing sitting on the floor, propped up against the wall with its legs out.
The scarecrow thing is creepy looking as all hell. You can tell from looking at it that it's just an actor dressed up like a scarecrow, and the barn is pretty obviously a TV set but it was still creepy enough to scare a kid. Anyway, Timmy kind of hesitates when he sees it, you canPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
