The world is a boring place — horror movies' promises have been broken. There are no evil ghosts haunting our houses; there are no giant marshmallow monsters terrorizing our streets; there are no aliens from another planet hunting us in the jungle. Life is boring, I tell you.

Of course, hope is not lost yet. We can still face evil ghosts, hungry zombies, serial killers and possessed people in real life, just not the way you are thinking.

If you ever see a werewolf on your way home in the middle of an empty park, you have to be sure that it's most likely not a real monster but merely a prank. You see, YouTube is full of elaborate scary prank videos based on great horror movies and tales.

Today, I present to you a list of seven of the scariest and funniest prank videos that I could find on YouTube. I really hope that you have a good time watching them.

And remember, any of us could be the next victim.

1. Killer Clown Prank

Ah, everybody loves clowns. Who is not attracted to their colorful extra-long clothes? To their cheerful makeup? To their buoyant wigs? To the beautiful saw tainted with blood that they carry while trying to kill you in the middle of the cold night. We all love them, right?

This is one of the most famous pranks on YouTube and, just like any good horror movie, the original has spawned several sequels that you will enjoy as much as the first one. Don’t watch it if you are afraid of clowns and balloons.

2. Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Prank

Let’s be real, we all have thought about what to do in case of facing the imminent zombie apocalypse, right? After all, I can't be the only one and I am sure that there are thousands more like me out there.

This prank shows a violent and hungry horde of zombies chasing innocent people. I wonder what kind of things the victims were thinking while running away (if they were having rational thoughts at all). Maybe they believed that the end was finally here. Maybe they were relieved of not living anymore in this horrible world. Maybe they were worried about their families and what would do if they were now mindless zombies. Either way, their response is always funny and you will have a good time watching them trying to escape.

3. Scary Ghost Subway Prank

Are you afraid of ghosts? Do the spirits of little girls scare you the most? If you answered yes to both questions, then this video is not for you.

Subways are scary. I am afraid of them, especially at night, when the place is empty and only the ghosts of the people who died in there are keeping me company. So I can imagine what the people inside a subway feel and think when they saw a little girl in front of them, with the doors closed and nowhere to run.

No more subways for me!

4. Extremely Scary Washroom Mirror Prank

This must be the most original and intelligent prank in the entire list.

Imagine that you are standing in front of a mirror and you can't see your own reflection. What would you think? I would think that I have become a vampire (it was about time). Others may think that they are dead. Others may think that it is just a glitch in the Matrix. Either way, we all would be unsettled, to say the least.

This prank is not particularly scary, but it is unnerving and perturbing. This is the kind of things that can make people go crazy.

5. Ghost Girl: Scary Elevator Prank In Brazil

Being afraid of elevators is normal. After all, they are evil and perverse little boxes that can betray you at any time. Just imagine the fear of being locked inside these inhuman metal coffins without hope of leaving. And now imagine this nightmarish scenario with an added little ghost girl standing next to you in that forlorn place. What would you do? Who you gonna call? Let me tell you, you are all alone and nobody is coming to save you. I'm sorry.

6. Mutant Giant Spider Dog

There are Sharknadoes, Sharktopuses, Lavantulas and DemonGoats. They all are terrible monsters. But this particular video will show you the most terrific beast of them all — the dreadful SpiderDog.

Well, if you see it, you will realize that SpiderDog is not that scary. In fact, it is quite cute. And this is exactly what it makes this video great. Seeing grown adults running away from this adorable specimen is just hilarious. Extremely Safe for Work.

7. Paranormal Activity Digital Portrait Zombie Halloween Prank

Welcome to the scariest video on this list (at least for us, the innocent viewers). In this video (more frightening than most horror movies), we will see a few unlucky pizza delivery guys experiencing some paranormal activity inside a haunted house. I will say no more because I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will say that you can buy one of the items used in this video to scare your own friends. What are you waiting for?
