Petscop is a fairly new series, the first episode was uploaded March of last year and is still ongoing with 13 videos posted. It is a 90s game where the goal is to catch as many pets as you can. The graphics would invoke nostalgia for many if it weren’t for the game’s underlying creep factor and sinister parallel to reality.
In Petscop, a guy who we know as Paul, takes us on a walkthrough of the game which unfortunately is unfinished and only has one level. He then reveals that he found a note in a letter attached to the game which contained a sequence of moves. He does these moves and gets teleported to an underground world of darkness and vast fields where he discovers a whole new creepy level complete with dungeons, cemeteries, and, well, death.
If you’re too chicken to watch all episodes, here’s a Game Theory that’s worth your time.
Happy Tree Friends
Who isn’t familiar with this brilliantly gory creation? Happy Tree Friends is a classic that has been around since 1999 and has never failed to serve its viewers with creative cartoon violence. Each episode has characters dismembered, brutally hurt, or eviscerated, which leaves them either dead or too mangled to be recognized.
Happy Tree Friends for sure isn’t a horror/thriller type of series as entire episodes take place in normal, sunny, and even happy settings, you’ll just have lots of moments where you’ll feel the pain of these characters and cringe your way through an episode.
This is one of the earliest YouTube series of its kind and is probably the inspiration for most of the animated thrillers on YouTube. Salad Fingers is a story about a tall, thin, green mentally troubled humanoid named Salad Fingers living in a barren area with only his finger puppets for company.
The whole 10-episode series consists of vague flashbacks, characters which give us a glimpse of the past, squiggly texts, and Salad Finger’s distorted slow speaking. Looking like it was animated from one of the earliest flash versions added to the eeriness of the whole series.
It’s a minefield for theories but of course Film Theory has got us covered on this one. Check out their two-part theory if you want answers to your obsession because I’m pretty sure after watching all episodes you’ll be brimming with questions.
Adult Swim Infomercials
Although yes, they’re not YouTube series, there’s nothing more confusing in this world than Adult Swim infomercials. There probably are but then they’re not as spectacularly done as these 10 to 15 minute infomercials. These videos will lure you in looking normal and interesting (Like Unedited Footage of a Bear or Too Many Cooks) and then BAM you’re in the middle of violence, confusion, and the brilliance of these videos. Watch to find out!
