You can find scary videos on the internet, and it's easy to spend quite a bit of time watching these free clips. The scariest video clips are both entertaining and frightening, some feature apparitions while others are of spirit orbs.

Top 5 Scariest Video Clips

The following 5 video clips chronicle some of the scariest videos on the internet. Some are short films made specifically to scare viewers while others are videos of what the person claims to be a real ghostly encounter.

1. Scariest Video Ever

This isn't a typical ghost caught on tape type of video. It is a film done in traditional horror style, but is very effective as a scary video! A woman sees a ghostly figure every time she turns off the hall lights. Don't turn off the lights!

2. The Deerpark Ghost

You may have heard about the Deerpark Christian Brother's School official YouTube channel posting a CCTV footage of what appears to be an angry ghost making itself known. You can see and hear the door open at the end of the hall and then slam closed with great force. Soon after, a locker violently rocks back and forth as though it will turn over then abruptly stops. Next, a locker is opened and papers are strewn on the floor. You can hear a clicking sound as though something is dripping or someone is tapping a cane or something on the floor. The final upset is the wet floor triangle that appears as though someone bats it away, sending it flying into the air. Is the video a well-staged hoax or did the school capture something amazing?

3. Scary Dad

While it is presented as one of America's Funniest Home Videos, no doubt the poor little boy in this video didn't see the humor when his dad scared him. The young boy is making a video about a faux news report when his father appears wearing a Jason mask in the window pane behind the child. The poor kid runs away screaming in terror. Warning: Don't scare your children like this. It really isn't funny and may damage their trust in you.

4. Little Girls Terrified

This disturbing video shows a little girl who becomes terrified of something she sees. Her sister laughs at her until she too sees the same scary thing and joins her sister screaming in a panicked terror. The scariest thing about this video is how the mother laughs at her frightened children instead of trying to console and comfort them, making the video even creepier.

5. Humanlike Robots

CNBC features a short video interview of humanlike robots with facial expressions that are very creepy and scary to many people. With eye cameras and AI that allows the female robot to learn, the inventor claims the robot will have the capability of becoming as conscious as a human.

True Scary Ghost Videos

Armed with all the technological tools at your disposal, you could also capture a ghostly image or encounter on video yourself. While it's true that modern ghost hunters use an array of tools to assist in their investigations of haunted places, there's also the element of the unknown that no amount of technology or knowledge can overcome.

Even with all of these tools, no one has yet been able to explain the phenomena of apparitions. Scientists cannot currently explain or understand all the hows and whys of ghosts.
