Popular Creepypasta YouTube Channels

These are some of the more popular YouTube creepypasta channels listed on FindAChannel in 2024.

If you love story channels you might also want to check out my list of some of the top Reddit stories channels.

Although Reddit and YouTube were both founded in 2005, it seemed to take many years for the Reddit stories on YouTube craze to gain traction. At the time of writing the majority of channels in the list below were started circa 2015, and many were started in 2019-20. Who says it's too late to start a YouTube channel? Maybe 2024 is the best year to start a new Reddit storytelling channel!

Scroll past the list to see some useful tips on starting your own YouTube storytelling channel.

Making Money on YouTube With Creepypasta Story Channels

Can YOU get views and potentially make money on YouTube with a storytelling channel based on real life or fictional stories?

Absolutely!

As you can see from the above list, there have been a lot of comparatively recent entrants to the niche. However, people LOVE stories, so this niche will never go out of fashion. Probably the biggest problem is coming up with ideas. My own particular tip is to go to your local library and see if you can access some old newspaper archives. I'm sure you'd find no end of strange and forgotten tales. Wikipedia is also a source of potential stories, but you'll find that most creepy tales have largely 'bindun'.

Remember that older people you might know are also a rich source of stories. For example I just started watching the anime Angel Beats!. In the series one of the characters loves playing the guitar, but has a domestic incident that causes them to fall over at work where they're hospitalised with severe brain trauma and memory loss. It just so happens the exact same thing happened to somebody I know (even down to playing the guitar being their release valve from the stresses of life). You do not need me to tell you how much it freaked me out seeing an anime replaying something that had happened to a family friend a couple of weeks earlier.

Monetization Risks

Getting a story channel monetized shouldn't pose too many issues. However, bear these points in mind. Also bear in mind that YouTube itself ultimately decides whether a channel should be monetized, and there are many other factors that influence their decision. With that in mind here are some key factors you should be wary of from the start:

  • To avoid potential copyright infringements, your videos should not simply read out stories posted on other websites.
  • Use your own voice in videos and do not use Text-to-Speech (TTS) as channels using this technology are generally not eligible for monetization.
  • If you're a non-native English speaker or you can speak other languages fluently then consider starting a creepy stories channel in other languages. There is generally less competition from other YouTubers but there is still considerable demand from viewers to hear creepypasta stories in languages such as Spanish and Hindi.
  • Prevent channel visitors from getting bored by using plenty of B-roll clips to illustrate your story. Again be wary of using copyrighted material.
  • Credit the original storyteller (if there is one) and do not claim the work as your own.
  • To build an audience, post regular videos and try to stick to a particular niche (such as creepy dolls, or haunted houses).
