A few months ago we talked about the podcast Internet Urban Legends, hosted by Loey Lane and Snitchery. It was, to be blunt, not a positive review. It isn’t the worst podcast I’ve heard, but by far it wasn’t the best.

That being the case, it might surprise you to hear that my review of Loey Lane’s Youtube channel is incredibly positive. It’s become a bit of an obsession. And if you’re looking for a good creepy Youtube channel, it might be your next obsession too.

Loey covers a series of creepy internet stories. Many of them originate from other social media platforms like Twitter, Reddit, and most commonly Ticktock. She also tells scary stories that her fans send to her, as well as her own paranormal experiences.

What I love most about this channel is when Loey talks about viral social media scary stories. Things like the infamous Dear David story from Adam Ellis. These sorts of stories tend to be spread out over weeks or even months. Some updates might appear on Facebook, some on Instagram and some on Ticktock. It’s easy to lose track or miss parts of creepy tales in that manner.

On the one hand, it makes AR-type stories feel more immersive and realistic. On the other hand, it’s hard to keep track of these stories when you don’t have any time to do it. If you heard of Dear David but didn’t know what the hell was going on, for instance, you could watch the hour-long explanation on Loey’s channel and be all caught up.

It’s important to see this channel for what it is. You’re not going to hear a lot of true crime, though there is some. But what you are going to hear are some of the eeriest internet tales around. 

I love how excited Loey gets about these tales. I think the pure joy on her face while she talks about the latest Five Nights at Freddy’s content is part of what endears me to this Youtube channel where the podcast failed. But I also think that the content lends itself to a visual medium, not purely sound. In the case of this Youtube channel, everything works. The visuals are great, the storytelling is fun, and the content itself is entertaining. It’s definitely worth a look. 

4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
