It's all in good fun when you're the victim of a prank, but some people take it way too far...

Some of them are hilarious, and some of them are downright horrific. The best part of it all are the reactions of the poor, unsuspecting people witnessing all of the insanity.

Here are the top 5 most terrifying pranks gone viral all over the internet to make you laugh...and cry...and lose sleep...

5) Chica the Spider Dog

If you have a fear of bugs, especially arachnophobia, this prank would probably leave you totally terrified. While the culprit committing the prank is adorable, I definitely wouldn't want this little monster running at me in the dark!

4) Coffin in an Elevator

What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with a coffin complete with a corpse in it? ...What would you do if the corpse fell out?

Man, people in Brazil are amazing at pranking. (Also see number 2!)

Note to self: never get into an elevator alone. Ever.

3) Telekinesis in a Coffee Shop

This one was done to promote the remake of Carrie (2013) starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. It's in a coffee shop in New York City, which I thought was pretty sweet, because I really don't live far from there...too bad I wasn't there to witness this. I wonder if I would have freaked out, or if I would have shaken this girl's hand.

2) Zombie Invasion on a Subway

And Brazil does it again! I wish I could come up with something this elaborate.

This one went viral just a few weeks ago! If you haven't seen it yet, press play and enjoy laughing at these poor people that think they're right in the center of The Walking Dead. If you have seen it, you should watch it again if you've had a bad day. It's a great pick-me-up for us horror freaks.

If you want to skip the behind-the-scenes stuff, head right to the 1:30 mark. That's where the fun starts.

5) Take This Lollipop

For those of you that use Facebook, this prank made its rounds in 2011, terrifying people all over the world, myself included.

This is one all of you can get in on. Put yourself in the center of the prank, and head to Take This Lollipop. Click the lollipop and connect to Facebook, then turn off the lights and enjoy...I pinky promise, it's worth it!! I already know what happens, and it still freaks me out every time.


Which of these would terrify you most?
