Scary Stories Behind The Most Unsettling Events In History

As sad and one of the more darker sides of human history centres around criminals or disturbed people and their unfortunate acts.

However, some parts of history are not only cruel, they can also be quite creepy, even downright terrifying. There’s no mistake that humans can be capable of some gruesome acts, but some people are so disturbed, their acts have a way of getting into people’s minds. Acts of cruelty and violence have been always been recorded over the years, and naturally the ones so unnerving, they are the ones that tend to jump out at us. Reddit users were asked in a recent thread to share their thoughts on the most creepy, true story stories and events in human history. Here is a list of some of the creepiest and scariest events documented in the last few decades.  

1. The Chichijima Incident: In September 1944 during WWII, an American airplane crashed near the Japanese island of Chichijima, with nine servicemen on board. Only one man was rescued by an American submarine, the other 8 were taken by the Japanese. Without going into the details, through some time and events the Japanese ended up EATING those servicemen. But that’s not the weird part. The one serviceman who was rescued, was George H. W. Bush. (Reddit user: Wheelio)

2. Child of Rage: There’s an HBO documentary called Child of Rage about a six year old with reactive attachment disorder, who repeatedly tortured animals, molested her brother and attempted to kill her adoptive parents by entering their bedroom at night with a knife. The documentary shows her calmly telling her therapist about the incidents. Very creepy and sad. (Reddit user: j_stack)
