Nyctophobia Is A Real Thing And You Probably Have It


As children (and even some adults nowadays) most of us tend to have a legitimate fear of the dark and the night. While many millennials tend to be night owls, most people usually sprint up the basement stairs after turning off the lights or use a night light up until adulthood. But is this fear a part of human evolution or is it just the human mind playing tricks on us?

The fear of the dark and the night is termed nyctophobia. While some brave souls will claim that they don’t fear anything, these pictures are bound to prove them wrong.

Here are 20 photos that will leave you even more scared of the dark (or ignite a fear you didn’t know you had):

1. Sometimes words can be scarier than an actual image itself. Who wrote that there? Why couldn’t they just invest in a biology textbook to find out how the human body works?

2. I always thought clowns could swim but I guess this fella just didn’t make it. Imagine seeing this and realizing you now have to switch jobs and never go fishing again.

3. This door isn’t just closed sometimes, but it needs to kept shut at ALL TIMES. And the door looks to be made of a dense metal. I guess it’s there to hold some giant beast back.

4. Either this person took a picture of them finishing digging a grave or they chanced upon it.What happened to the body that was supposed to be in there? Actually, don’t answer that.
