The face is blank. As in, no nose, no mouth. However, it has three solid green eyes, one in the middle of its forehead, and the other two on either side of its head, towards the back. Usually seen in front yards in suburban areas. Usually just watches the observer, but will stand up and attack if approached. When it attacks, a mouth opens up, as if a hinged skull that opens at the chin.
Reveals many tiny, but dull teeth. By December , a Tumblr account was created in order to document sightings of the Rake , and though it appears the founder of that blog was aware the Rake was fictional, not all of the readers were. Stories of the Rake continued to be shared, eventually making their way into more mainstream horror communities like CreepyPasta , and Unexplained Mysteries , both websites dedicated to sharing horror stories and digital urban legends.
They had created an irresistible monster, and the Rake began to transition from verifiable fiction to urban legend. So if the Rake is so obviously fake, how do stories about it continue to circulate around the internet? The members on the subreddit have just one thing in common: they love reading and writing terrifying stories. The platform, which is typically something of a hobby, has led to the springboard of several successor horror writers.
However, the subreddit has one major rule: you cannot hypothesize on whether the stories are true or not. When you enter, you must suspend disbelief. Everything is true. Today there are Reddit threads that discuss mounting an investigation to the area, and the website Only In Your State cites the story as a creepy true happening from Kentucky.
Either you believed it or you didn't, but enough people were talking about it that it had entered the public consciousness. If you're actively seeking out a scare, then there has to be some element of believability in order for it to send that shiver down your spine.
Because each of these things is another wrung the reader can grasp and understand. The tale of the Rake is filled to the brim with detail, and was expertly engineered to be a terrifying creature. The claims of initial media coverage but eventual censorship by the government feeds into our more conspiracy-prone side.
Other internet conspiracies tap into the same type of energy. Looking back to PizzaGate, which was also born on Reddit , the conspiracy had many specific details even if untrue. It felt like raw footage, and people wanted it. It's fun to experience terror when in actuality there is no threat at all.

What I found was a shrill voice. It was the Rake. I have not seen the Rake since he ruined my life, but I know that he has been in my room while I slept. The fanged and taloned creature is commonly said to live in woods or forested areas. The creature is usually shown naked and crawling toward the viewer on all fours, suggesting that though it is bipedal it prefers to stalk victims in a manner similar to a four legged animal.
After some initial back and forth discussion one particular idea was chosen as the most promising candidate and began to be formed, added to and manipulated by several users. The story indicates that sightings of rake like creatures date back as far as the 12th century, that the first records of the creature are from the 17th century and that the creature can be linked to unexplained phenomena and sightings of cryptid like beings in the North Eastern United States.
By late Rake stories appeared on Livejournal. It later found its way onto Creepypasta forums and began to increase in popularity. This image, which is now the one most closely associated with The Rake mythology and the common starting point from which most Rake fan art and variants are derived, was actually taken seriously by mainstream media outlets when it first appeared.
The still image, alleged to have been extracted from the memory card of a now broken night vision camera, was posted to the Wildgame Innovations site by someone claiming to have actually encountered the creature. The association of the image with the character can most likely be attributed to the face that the image itself appeared in the same month as a single topic blog tumblr account hoping to gather together all of the fan art, copypasta and sighting reports into one place, with fans of the rake story or those encountering it for the first time conflating the image with the story in an association that would continue to the present.
Copyright Statement: Unless explicitly stated, all stories published on Creepypasta. I swear I read a different one of the rake with a kid and his brother on a bunk bed or something. Anyone else? Haha this is the first time ive read this story and ive been reading for about 3 years. Why is this story so popular? Omg, the rake is the best creepy pasta I have ever read. The creepy, and the starring of its face is super duper creepy gives it.
There is a man who cant see at all is blind and can tell you the shape and color of objects in a pitch black room with a bandana around his head. I had a long, thin body, sharp claws at the bottom of it, and it was next to a pile of leaves during Autumn! Scary… Yet awesome! And for those that had their lives ruined thanks to the Rake. Prove me wrong if you wish. I was under the impression that this story had quite a bit more to it?
Am I missing something? However, I made sure to read it during a very sunny afternoon! Some interesting ideas with the historical exceprts for plot development, but not one of the best for me. I had to look up The Rake after I told my friends about this dream I had and they said the monster thing I saw in my dream was The Rake. Now that I know what it is.. I always wondered if creepypastas killers have a club where they just chill and talk like normal people.
This is an awesome creepypasta I really love it and I did get scared a little I was trying not to scream but after I read it I heard a knock at the door and it scared me half to hell. No joke. My friend saw it too. I was 13, and I was at Kincumber mountain. In the field, my friend and I were about to go into the forrest, and I saw it.
My councellor told me that my mind made me think it was there, but my friend saw it too. Last night I a night mare and the last time I had one was nine years ago, and the dream was about the rake and how I would die. This man told me how I would die and he said it would a gory death by the rake. Then I was running for my life in the woods then he caught me.
So I looked at my hips there was scratch marks on them. As a young boy I had seen glances of the rake in my childhood home at the time I did not know what it was thinking it was just a ghoul now I know different and am glad we moved. Why would you take your own life just because this thing is chasing you? Sadly disappointing, my friend made out like thus was supposed to be a big deal. It just sounds like a Wendigo, with less lore and culture.
So much potential for a creature and story wasted. Great concept for a creature and the buildup on the account was nice, but then it fell flat because the writer is quite novice to say the least. Also, one of the most infuriating things of all is the lack of proof reading and failure to correct the simplest of spelling and grammatical errors. If you are going to post a work of freaking art, you better dang well proofread it and take some pride in it.
Posting a story for all to see is not the same as posting a tweet. Killjoy27 did you know that it is what I will call a literary offense not to use capital letters at the beginning of your sentences? Please remember that users come to this site for a creepy experience. You probably need to loosen up. To all those posting creepy threats — keep it coming!
Fell better ha ha ha. Odd Prisiner : awwww your not edible? Hannah The Killer : How can Slenderman stalk people without any eyes? You wanna answer that? KillJoy27 : apparantly maturity isnt a quality handed down through generations. For I know how to defend myself, I know how to kill, and how to make you wish I did kill you.
With love, The Nightmare. Anonymous : Eyeless Jack as in Slenderman. Eyeless jack : I would read this… If i had eyes…. Why not? Clearly, this is a true meeting of intellectuals. I mean it very lightly, as a satirical comment on the repetitive nature of the comments. Anyway, carry on. Also: He comes. The rake has been discussed for centuries before creepypasta even existed.
See, I like this one better than Jeff the Killer. This one is original. Jeff the Killer is basically just young Mike Myers from Halloween. Rake sits at the foot of the bed. Pulls out gun. The Rake! This one definitely needed to be here. People who say the rake is not real, and that the rake would have simply killed the author… think a bit. So people who have encountered him would actually know what they saw.
And I have seen it. Walking around at night, me and my friend did in fact catch a glimpse of him in the woods and we ran. He must not have been interested in us, we have yet to see him again, but I assure you. He is real. I see in the dark. Aye, anyone want to get together and go on a killing spree?? Been pretty bored, lately.
Slendy, you up for it?? Brings memories and good times back to me. Simple Ben reads story to E. Ben types out what E. There are like 5, Jeff on wiki, yet alone the rest of the internet!!! Slender man does not kill children he tries to remake his son, but he cant. He takes children to remember his son. He only kills adults and teens his son was 5 years old. The real Jeff the killer : I will make you beautiful just like me if you want;or I can help you just ….
Go To Sleep. The story line was amazing the story wonderful detail i love the fact that the husband crashed the car into the lake later that night and how the daughter just stood there like she was lifeless he is the rake i always love getting a good scare before i go to bed excellent work bravo my friend bravo!
Well, Im glad to hear about how concerned people are with how Eyeless Jack is typing. Maybe i will ask him to tell you guys tomorrow. I will be seeing you all very soon.. Yeah, um….. XD Go to sleep then. Or play a game….. Okay, I seriously have nothing on this one. Its really cute seeing these 12 year old girls fangirling over killer, if you really want a man like that go to a prison or a mental institution u little prickys … do u really think if you met a serial killer he would spare your petty life?
Fall in love with you? Loved it! Anonymous : i hate it when people try to be a pasta. Mary Hatchet : Amazing pasta. Anonymous murderur : i did nawt lern 2 spel i wil kil yu in yor slep. This is atrocious. I think your spelling has already killed several English and language arts teachers. Try and find me if you dare. I have ran inot the rake when I was in my woods. You may not know me yet but I have a colorful scarf a silver mask not like a clown but almost like a lifeless figure I will go into your dreams I will go into your house on june 17th my birthday during exactly 12 I will sit on your couch and wait for you.
I might even sneek in your room and sit next to you. If you ever see me I will come after you the next year. And you silly fools I am a real person wanting to show the world I am here and you are next Laalala.. All of you are stupid, why would any killer get on here and give away their identity? Would he? By the time you get this far into the comment you are sure you are dreaming and this could never happen in the real world..
But just then you feel something staring at you from behind and breath down your neck. Oh shit. I know what that thing is now. Every night since I was 9 this thing has been there. I have nightmares about the rake now! The rake is really creepy….. So sleep easy and dont think of nightmares :. Ahhhh yes the rake,a classic…. Very scary indeed … But i do not belive as scary as my jeff. The husband. I had to read that twice, too. But the husband drove into a lake when he was rushing his daughter already dead to the hospital.
He died when he drove into that lake. My phone kept randomly freezing while reading this and I live in rural New York, and my phone is still freezing up and acting odd. Smile Dog : I Always Smile. Hey you guys can i go on the killing trip, cus i get loads of killing sprees,hanging them from their intestines and putting their heads on spikes, does that sound good anough for killing? Alright… Lets see if pony therapy really works… It kind of worked.
The Rake considers him a fiend. The Rake killed a person for him just because of those 6 words. The rake…. Is actually a dog lover. It would have been better if it had been rearranged. The attack should have come at the end while the story built up to it. We could have gotten a little more attached to the dead people and had an all around more awesome pasta. Well I am from Louisiana tracking this strange monster and this is a similar account to what I have seen anyone who can help let me know.
We ran home that ugly after sitting there for a while in shock of what we saw. Last summer my friend and I were at a park drinking, it was just us two. We thought it was just wind rustling through the trees. My friend saw it first it was this weird hunched grey thing up at the corner quite aways from us it was walking on all 4s and looked human.
The way its shoulder blades move reminded me of a tiger. It just walked away. Reading this makes me think it was the rake. Shes attempted suicide twice and is under suicide watch. This story has me beyond scared. Our location seems right too, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
I am absolutely freaked. I am afraid! It really gave me anxiety; in other words.. Great pasta! Slender here, accompanied by Rake. First off, neither of us appreciate you slendering our names. Give us a bRAKE. For the most part, we try to live wholesome and responsible lives. Second, the daughter mentioned in the story above attacked Rake first. He was just defending himself. He tends to drink a little too much and sometimes tries to find my house while intoxicated.
Lastly, all of the accusations towards me are, simply put, false. I do not abduct children. I just like to kick it with my peeps on the playground. Give a Slindda a break. Gotta go, Rake is getting undressed again….. Goodnight everybody, see you in your dreams ;. He-help m-m-me.. Another soul, another day. I have marked the ip adresses of all these comments. I know which houses they are in. I am coming for you, imposters of my work-mates. I am coming for you.
At beginning I tought this was another story off slender, but I was wrong it was about the rake was reading on another website first I loved it! I got a freze down my back good writen story and a good idea! Soooooooooo, The Rake. Its okay I still like killing ponies and baking special cupcakes better than reading this.
Funny thing is… I moved my bed between two walls to sleep after this… Cursed rural New York pastas. Most of this is true. Face it, you are not the actual CreepyPasta. You are just a nobody sitting at your computer taking everyone out of the zone for reading scary stories.
Case closed. Ask yourselves this. Really the users who claim to be the monsters in creepypastas are just fans of the original storys. I know logic enough to know that. I actually encountered such a being two nights back. I have the wounds to prove. And sadly I have the hospital documents to prove as well. Just watch out everyone it takes what it wants, when it wants.
I saw the rake run across my yard in indiana i picked up the phone and about called i have never been so scared in my life. My friend and his brother saw the rake behind a pond in their back yard then that night at about 4 am the same time the girl saw it he woke up to he thought screeching he looked up to find the rake in his walk in closet he was frozen with fear he didnt sleep gor 3 nights he wad so frightened his brother thinks he is crazy he has been at a friends house for a month now.
I have seen the Rake. If anyone else is out there who has any information on the rake, I need to know how long I have. No, not him… them. Its a species. They only live near government facilities. We made them. We made him. Story mentions the creature been spotted in upstate new York…..
I am what they call fear; I am sickness. I always watch you yet, you never notice me. I will terrorize you until you drive ,what mortals call, insane. For I do not kill, but drive my prey into killing. All I can say now is to prepra yourself. Love, Your greatest fear. This story is so scary If i would actually shit bricks , i would have a house right now ;-; Especially cause i keep hearing noises from outside my house.
This story, for the simple reason of how scary the monster is described to be, coupled with the fact that he was so close to her as she slept, stimulated a brick-like bowel movement. I hope she gets credited when it becomes a movie! This made me start watching that dancing shadow in the corner of my eye, Listening to the sounds of the heater thumping and groaning as it kicks on and turns off, focus on the sounds of the fans and clocks humming and ticking in the house and being thankful that the light is on above my head.
Thus I wonder; is it the story giving me chills or is it my turn to face what lies waiting in the dark. I only have killed those people because I did not wish to see them die at your hand. Good thing I am the extra tooth of the rake. I never stop receiving the flesh from his victims…. This is certainly a great pasta. It may be because I live with a ghost. Just…the description of how it walks…scared the shit out of me so badly that I started laughing hysterically o.
The rake was based off the stray dog that had wanderd new york in It says,the dog was found dead in the park…. I wish icould list links but there thirty or more links….. There were some parts that needed a bit more explanation but otherwise a brilliant pasta.
Last time i found out something I saw 2 years ago is apparently slenderman. I saw the Rake years before I ever heard of it. I was walking outside my property at about 3 Am I spotted a strange creature on all fours looking at me from about feet away.
It looked tan-brown. Suddenly, it stood on its hind legs dangling its long skinny arms. To me it looked like a naked, skinny, bald human. The eyes glowed at me and then it sprinted away across my lawn. Scared shitless, I went inside and locked my door. I swear if you are the real skydoesminecraft then I will die! And in some mod show cases you have read a few creepy pastas! So it could be you! Read this pasta months ago, i liked it but forgot it in a few hours.
Im tempted to start recording my sleep like the narrator. Im not sure. I think tath it was the Rake tath i faced one nigth. Im not sure if it was the Rake or my sleep walking brother. Fifty Fifty. I will never forget it………. Unknown————————— But i belive in ur story if u and 3 more peapole hawe sean it well why not me?
Is it posible for it to live in Finland? That freaks me out. It was really entertaining though. This is my first time on the site and my first comment. Really cool. It was supposed to be on the news because it had that breaking news on the top and bottom. But it gave me something to read. I doubt even I will sleep tonight!!!! One more step……….. I have many other weapons to use……. Cause it better be XD. Really good story very creepy c:. I had the weirdest dreams this morning. They sprawled on for some time, different scenarios,different places, but all of them had a very psychological weight to them.
Most of the dream scenarios had the element of familiarity — that I knew the locations very well, I knew every detail. He said it as if it was of importance and should be remembered. But he was clear… I only wish I could explain the feeling when I awoke. This was really, really good. I liked the use of journal entries and that kind of thing. Its link. I saw the rake before it was cool, but you probably never heard of it.
And the reason is because link got all ugly and decided to scare people. This made me shit myself it was so bad from all of the other stories I read about on the internet. You all need to put on more about it. I live in western Pennsylvania, and I had an encounter with the Rake once. I was walking home alone from an abandoned barn pretty deep in the woods me and a few friends were doing a bit of underage drinking there , and I noticed something moving through the trees about 30 feet away from me.
I could also hear some kind of weird sound, the best way I can describe it would be like somebody talking gibberish. I was really scared at this point, and I started walking faster. Walking fast eventually turned into running. Running turned into sprinting. Sprinting in the dark turned into tripping and face planting into the ground. I looked down the trail and seen that fucked up looking thing coming right at me. I knew that I was finished at that point, so I just closed my eyes and waited.
After about a full minute of laying there with my eyes closed, I finally opened them. The Rake was getting mauled by a sasquatch. I simply urge a contact. Sounds like the Dogman, which apparently exists. I know someone who got away from one. Anyone can make a story about them. I have to ask though…Why a rake? This is written quite nicely. I do wish that it had been a bit more eventful though, maybe a little more suspenseful. I love the ending line though just saying that and nothing else.
Something that people have started to theorize is that the Rake kills people to spare others. It has a hunger that can never be satisfied, but it will choose to kill someone in favor of another. I find it very interesting that every single illustration of the Rake looks almost exactly like this. In my bed shitting Brix, ment to go for a cigarette after reading this shit, now too scared to even move. Love the whole story but I especially love the way it starts. With like an expert like prosecutor or sumthin givin you the facts.
The details were a little fuzzy, and I could imagine this ten times creepier than it was actually described. Sign In or Open in Steam. Languages :. View Points Shop Items 3.
