Brendan’s Scare Dares: Episode 1 – Thirteen Horror

Most of you who know me, know I’m a big fan of horror and being scared. However, after years of watching horror, ghost tours, paranormal investigations and things of this nature, I’m a little desensitized to it. This is why I have created my new Scare Dare web videos. The idea is I track down the scariest dares, urban legends etc. and give them a try. Future episodes will have a little better production values, this one’s a bit of a test which I’m sharing with you guys.

This time I did the 13 Horror short story, it’s supposedly terrifying, it’s been banned in Italy, and I gave it a shot.

Warning: If you think you will ever want to try it, skip to the end and see what I think. Watching this will definitely take away some of the fear. Alternatively follow along with me, and watch the video in a dark room by yourself and follow the instructions.

Just so you know, I have been in the dark room with the door open since I (we) finished. I have heard quite a few creepy noises, a woman outside screamed, and it is very dark and still very creepy.



But now on to future Scare Dares. Here are some I’m planning, please suggest more in the comments.

  • 13 Horror volume 2 has one of these stories for groups, so I’m looking for some volunteers to help me.
  • Bloody Mary: Try out the famous legend and say her name 3 times in the mirror.
  • Devil’s Crossroad: Visit crossroads at midnight, and potentially meet the devil.
  • Super Seance: Have a séance and break all the safety rules (eg. don’t cover mirrors, go somewhere potentially haunted)
  • Watch some of the scariest (reportedly) movies at midnight, by myself, in the dark, and film some of my reactions. I’m thinking Human Centipede and Serbian Movie (neither of which I have seen yet)
  • Spend some time in the new improved solitary cell at Port Arthur. (Possibly the most haunted place in Tasmania)

Please suggest more!

But now I have to go outside and pick up Sally, in the dark, by myself. Wish me luck!


This post has been extremely popular, thanks for the support. However please don’t ask me to post the story “The Magic”. I won’t be doing it! Also please don’t post links to illegally download the story or I will be forced to remove them. You can buy “The Magic” (and a punch of other horror classics) for Kindle on Amazon for only $2.99, and there is also a book version available. Check out the Thirteen Horror page here to buy your copy. Just follow the links. You can also buy the second book which features “The Dare” which I plan to try soon. Thanks again guys!

      Don’t be a fucking ass. Go strangle yourself by dressing in a full body condom. If you want to act like a dick, you might as well dress like one.

      I request Blind Maiden. Enter at at midnight. Only works at that time from 12:00 – 12:59, I’ve never hit that time exactly, sometimes to late or too early. I hope you will (Its somewhat a spanish legend)

      January 13, 2012 at 4:04 pm

      • You just write at the times you gave? I will try and give it a try, we are having some trouble getting access to a computer to edit episode 2 (we filmed it ages ago), but as soon as we work out a solution we will be doing more. However, I may be able to do another basic one (like the first ep just on webcam) as it sounds pretty simple to record. Not sure how I will go with timezones though (if it makes a difference). Problem with doing a Spanish legend here I guess. If there is anymore info I should know, let me know and I’ll get to it when I can.

    Thank you so much for putting this up. Good luck with your show! I shall be keeping watch

  3. that’s it that’s the whole “The magic” story i can’t believe it lol i was way scared by peoples reactions & it wasn’t anything. it might be b/c i watched u do it instead of doing it myself but its supposed to be the most scariest thing ever written.

    October 5, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    • It’s much more scary to do (assuming you follow the instructions) but I think even filming it made it a little easier. It was actually creepier after, I stayed in the dark for an hour or so, and kept hearing noises.

        October 29, 2011 at 4:02 am

      • Hey mate, if you happen to film one, I would be happy to share it here. I haven’t been to Mexico, but I love Japan! I actually lived there for a year and I did some Ghost Huntingsome Scare attractions, but unfortunately that was it. I wanna go back.

      it was “shit”

      February 9, 2012 at 5:52 pm

  22. Yaoi

    Let me just be an asshole and point that out – I think it wasn’t banned from Italy because it’s ‘so scary’ but rather because you have to follow the instructions in the story. Invating the devil to your room/house isn’t really right with “the laws of church”, because it’s pure occult.
    Just my opinion tho…

    Hey Bro. Took Balls To Do It. You Seem Like a Nice Cool Kid. Dont Listen To Stupid Ass Haters On Here.

    demons or the devil cant posses people or come into thier lives unless invited…you possibly just invited something to attact itself to of luck.

    December 15, 2011 at 2:42 pm

  25. Mita

    Wasnt really scared by that 🙂 Can you recommend me some horror movies or anything similar to this , cant really find anything good these days .

    January 3, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    • That’s ok. It’s the sort of thing where it’s scarier to do yourself (in my opinion). We have filmed another and hope to have it ready soon. As far as horror movies go check out my Top 13 Halloween Horror films. I’ll try and do some more horror articles too, so keep your eyes out. Maybe I’ll do a best international horrors or something.

    damn sux my credit card all full….in my passs i ve seen to much shit……dont know if id do it …not after what ive been trew

    January 3, 2012 at 1:39 pm

  27. I just did this earlier tonight, and chickened out at the end. my heart was beating like crazy when i read DEVIL. I came here, to see if something did actually happen at the end. But I think you missed the point at the end. i think the purpose at the end, was to “invite” him in, without actually opening the door. I think the Magic was or at least the purpose of the story was to get you freaked out at the possibility of the door opening by itself. (That concept alone scared the crap outta me) All in all i appreciate the video for clearing my lingering doubts. keep on the good work

  28. Nimue-Sophie

    Hey , i think its brave of you to do that ! Me and my brother are from Germany and the City we come from is over 1000 years old, our house is about 200 so we had some pretty scary nights here aswell. There are lots of tales and ghost stories in the millions of old castles and forests we have here! Would be awesome if someone could do an investigation in our house or maybe the church ruin next to us since our little city is known for burning witches in the medival times! Im way to chicken but my brother acted all cool about this video so im going to let him do this too! Maybe i can send you some videos of our german expierences for example on a soldiers graveyard from worldwar 2 at night . I could easily get someone to sit there and wait for something! Tell me if your interested! Cheers!

    January 24, 2012 at 6:25 am

    • Yeah, I would be very interested to see them. Check out too. It’s the ghost hunting group I belong too. Would love to travel to Germany and see the castles and things. Tasmania is not so old, but we still have a pretty nasty past (with all the criminals who were transported here). I actually got married at the most haunted place in Australia, which used to be a prison.

    When are you gonna post another Scare Dare? I’d love to see you do another! This is so cool.

    I think, though, you’re not supposed to open the door and sit in the dark for a small amount of time, so you can sit alone with your thoughts and your adrenaline rushing.

    so recently, this kid sent me and my friends a link to the scary korean comic strip,,and we read it with the lights on in the middle of the wuz still scary. so heres a dare i think you should do:
    1. type in “Scary Korean Comic Strip” on google (you dont have to pay money to experience it)
    2. search for the english version.
    3. turn off ALL lights, close all doors, shut all windows. be ALONE. make sure its around 12am.
    4. scoot up really close to the screen…REALLY CLOSE.
    5. turn the volume up almost all the way (there are sound effects as you scroll down). make sure there is dead silence in the room you’re in (except for the computer obviously)
    6. read the warning in the beginning and then begin reading the comic strip by scrolling down the screen until you reach the end if you can make it.

    some people find it weird and odd while others (like me) find it just plain terrifying. i think reading it will be worth it and is guaranteed to freak u out even the slightest bit!! my friends say they regret reading it—not even gonna lie, i regret reading it too cuz its really scary. haha but i think ull probably survive if you’re that brave.

    but it!!!!!!! i wanna see if u need new pants @ the end or if you just stare at the pictures confused. lol

    thanks and good luck 😛

    February 2, 2012 at 8:54 am

    • Cool, will try and do this soon. I haven’t seen an english one before so I’m keen to try it. Will give me someting to post while I sort out the issues I’m having with “The Dare” video.

      February 20, 2012 at 9:59 am

  31. carrie

    i just watched your video and was wondering if the dare is scarier then the magic…im not sure im wiling to try this as im thinking it could be a mass production of devil worshipping etc a bit like the film where u watch the video and 7 days later u die…im kinda unwilling to let the devil into my home…but maybe im just a scared english girl lol x

    February 7, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    • We have done “The Dare” too, and filmed it, but due to some computer issues haven’t managed to get it on here yet. I will say it is quite different. If you aren’t comfortable with this stuff I wouldn’t recommend trying either.

      February 20, 2012 at 9:57 am

  32. Max

    If you have not seen Serbian movie yet I wouldn’t if I were you unless you like fucked up porn movies. It’s not scary, just very very disturbing (why it’s illegal in a lot of countries)

    February 9, 2012 at 7:01 am

  33. ur awesome buddy

    February 19, 2012 at 5:21 pm

  34. Kellie

    Okay, so don’t watch the Human Centipede, It’s not scary, It’s more gross than anything.

    But the Bloody Mary thing..
    It’s scary, but doesn’t work all too well.
    The most scare I’ve ever gotten has been just a small shadow on the mirror.

    March 1, 2012 at 1:27 pm

  35. Skarijony

    Man can’t wait for to make a video for the “The Dare”, hope you make it soon,
    Really liked your show, keep on going.

    March 7, 2012 at 8:25 am

    • It’s filmed, but’s it’s a lot mor complex and unfortunately my computer isn’t cutting it. Hope to find a solution soon.

      March 11, 2012 at 7:23 pm

  36. jordan

    if you saw my face while you where doing this you woulda laughed for a few hours, i litteraly had on a crying face *no tears*, and i was slowly backing away from the computer to turn on the lights, then a random thought hit me “what if its real and the devil is waiting for me to turn on the lights so he could drag me to hell?” god damnit brain…….now im stuck in the darkness for a few minutes…

    April 13, 2012 at 1:59 pm

  37. heyyy its XxRnMproductionsxX from youtube i did a video response to two of your scare dare vids. Me and my friend love ur new series and want to do something similar. Were much younger then u and are guarentted to jump out of or skin sooo it should be fun. I was wondering if you could promote our new series called Scare Me by rnmproductions starting august 2012. thats a link to our trailer. I was wondering if you could promote us a little i would very much appreciate it thanks for your time either way!

    June 29, 2012 at 11:04 am

  38. Having seen both Human Centipede movies, I can honestly say the first one is not “scary” at all just disturbing…the 2nd one however was so shocking I actually had to turn away on one part and that never happens to me! I watch a ton of scary movies. So watch the first one to ease yourself into how gruesome and disturbing it is and then I dare you to watch Human Centipede 2…

    November 5, 2012 at 7:32 am

  39. Amberrrrrrrr

    I was watching this in my house, in the middle of the day, with my brother just down the hall with all the doors open, once i got to 7 minutes i began hearing noises down in the basement in my room… I have to wait to finished this I’m gonna watch it on friday when my cousins can watch it with me. i have been dying to see this, but ill wait. I was just wondering if anyone else began hearing things? this is so scary. i love it. thanks for posting!!
