Haunted TikTok is the next evolution of internet horror
After hours of scrolling through endless TikToks of teens dancing, couples pranking each other, and dogs being cute — something on your For You Page stops you dead in your tracks.

Someone is walking around a dark, empty house, as text explains that their mom hasn't come home. As they take us through their neighborhood, they realize it's not just her — everyone has vanished overnight.

"Hey kinda serious here like my entire town is missing I’m not really sure what to do is this happening elsewhere?" the caption reads.

Clicking on the @where_is_everybody account (with over 240,000 followers), you discover someone named Alexander Nielsen has chronicled this phenomenon since October 2019. Each video shows more of this empty world, where people have been replaced by shadowy ghost figures.

After COVID-19 led to a wave of stay-at-home orders and widespread panic-buying at grocery stores across America in March 2020, the videos grow even more dire. Now there's completely deserted highways, too, with captions mentioning food growing more and more scarce.

Whether you realize it or not, you've just stumbled onto the scary side of TikTok.

Despite being an app best known for attractive teens going viral with trendy challenges, a sinister niche has been quietly growing since 2018. Haunted TikTok (aka #HorrorTikTok, #CursedTikTok, #GhostTikTok, #CreepyTikTok, #ScaryTikTok) now pulls in anywhere from one to 11 billion views. That doesn't even count the stuff without tags, either.
