TikTok declared the 'scariest video on the internet'

If you’re the kind of person who reads about horror movies before watching them, you’re a genius. Months after TikTok user artem_mokrushin uploaded the original post, a tweet from journalist Ben Bell re-sharing the clip went viral. “2020 in one TikTok,” the tweet read. In the video, a man turns off the lights in a hallway, and a vague figure appears twice. A woman sitting on the bed points to the figure each time, and each time the man turns the lights back on and sees nothing. Eventually, a screaming sound blows out the audio and the figure rushes to the camera at lightning speed and a terrifying face fills the screen. There’s something about the low production value at first that lures you into a false sense of security and then grabs you. “Whatever you do. Do NOT click on this. Wish I could go back in time and be free of this curse,” one Twitter user wrote. For good measure, a TikTok user declared it the “scariest video on the internet”
