Why are things creepy?

Vsauce does an excellent job at explaining why we find things creepy. Have you ever thought about it? After all, creepy things aren’t necessarily scary, but they don’t give a you a good feeling either. This video explains that idea very well, and if you’re a horror writer, I would definitely recommend watching this eight-minute video.

Speaking of horror, be sure to sign up for the newsletter so you can get a sneak peek at one of my upcoming short stories. The newsletter goes out on the first of every month.

What things creep you out? Do you agree with Vsauce’s assessment? Is there something you find creepier than the things that exist in the “uncanny valley”? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Give me your thoughts.
