Creepypastas

Creepy Pasta: The Rake

Today I want to talk to you about one of my personal favourite Creepypasta creatures. I say creature as opposed to the story because while there is a story-ish element to this Creepypasta, its more about the creature than anything else. It puts me in mind of a less formal and less structured SCP log entry. 

The reason this one is one of my favourites is that it creeped me out massively the first time I heard it. The combination of story craft (aka the use of less is more) and the images associated with the creature work very well to get right under the skin and cemented this creature as one that I will treasure.

I am, of course, talking about The Rake.
