Vanity’s Creepypasta Halloween Countdown Day # 25: Down the Rabbit Hole

by Tracy Vanity

As I delve deeper and deeper into The Land of Creepypasta I keep coming across pictures of rabbits. Why rabbits of all things? How could something so cute, fluffy, and harmless be creepy?

Yet time and time again I’d come across these pictures. It was as if Creepypastaland was trying to tell me something…but what?

Was there some Alice in Wonderland/Bizarro connection? Is the rabbit meant lead you somewhere? As I fall further down, I believe the answer is “yes.”

I mean…I do have an obsession with Lewis Carroll and the Alice books to the point where I have the first stanza of the Jabberwocky poem tattooed backwards on my forearm…and I do have the first pressing of Through the Looking Glass from 1871 as well as a huge collection of books, toys, and random shit related to Wonderland….not to mention I know both books by heart and read passages from them at least once a month like the Bible….doesn’t everyone?

But it couldn’t just be me. The creepy rabbit keeps popping up and has replaced the horse head mask as the new creepy animal trend.

That horse head fad is now passé as fuck. Even the pig is old hat. It’s all about the rabbit!

Even David Lynch jumped on the creepy bunny train when he made that unsettling bunny sitcom in Inland Empire.

Damn, just the rabbit scenes are 42 minutes long!

Still not convinced yet? Then maybe theses lagomorphic mindfuck videos from the talented Florian-Ayala Fauna will help you take the final leap:

“It was much pleasanter at home,” thought poor Alice, “when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits. I almost wish I hadn’t gone down the rabbit-hole–and yet–and yet–…”

6 days until Halloween! Ready or not!

  2. Those rabbit pictures are brilliant, but my favourite has to be the well-intentioned one with the child on his/her knee
