When it comes to horror-themed websites, I love to explore. I'll admit, there are some websites I find highly unethical, but that doesn't I mean I stopped my over-zealous finger from clicking.
One that has come to my attention (and has a lot of copy-cat sites) is See Me Rot.
For a split-second, I was disturbed by what I was seeing. Who on Earth would stick a web cam in a coffin?! Then I wondered how it could possibly work.
After some speculation, I decided to give the cam-in-coffin idea the benefit of a doubt. That was before I noticed all the SINGLES ads floating around the site in addition to the lack of creator information.
The latter might've been for legal reasons, but why the ads? Why would a site keeping track of the way a human body decomposes sell hook-up sites?
Maybe I'm not the first, but I'm definitely going to debunk this site.
The more I stared at the camera, the more I realized I wasn't watching a stream at all. It looked like the same two images overlayed. So I tried to right click.
And I was blocked. Maybe it was a cam.
Or so it appeared.
I tend to use Google Chrome because it can rip apart any element of a web page, which is useful if you want to peek at how a site is structured or how images are locked. It's not hacker-helpful, so to speak, but I noticed the pop-up blocker preventing my right clicks was nothing more than a text block.
So I disabled it. I think on some browsers you can right click the hell out of an image to unlock it.
And maybe you don't believe the site is fake. Maybe you want to believe it. Don't look down if you don't want to, but I saved the GIF to prove this is a replaying set of images.
In the end, I feel let down. I really wanted to be creeped out.
Maybe I'll go ghost hunting instead. Or this site is kind of spooky.
Fear, focus, and the future. C.M. Humphries talks about writing, horror, and whatever.
