What the hell happened to creepypastas?
Whether it’s Gilgamesh or urban legends, the art of storytelling has been around for thousands of years. In the case of creepypastas, just replace the campfire with a computer screen.
For those that have never experienced this internet genre of storytelling, creepypastas are horror-related stories, images, or videos. The name is based off the term “copypasta” because the stories are typically copied and pasted all over the internet.
But over the past few years, the popularity of the genre has dwindled after tragic events caused the community to reel itself back and stifle creation.
