Otis Jiry’s Creepypasta Crypt

language arts & literature, 6-8, 9-12

Otis Jiry’s Creepypasta Crypt is an audio anthology of stories for Halloween and stormy nights. Language arts students in may already be familiar with authors like Bierce, Lovecraft, and Twain, and their stories can be assumed suitable for 6-12. Others should be carefully previewed.  Here are some examples of Otis Jiry's masterful narration:

  • A father worries about his son's imaginary friend in Michael Wasson’s My Son's Toy is Alive. (2:34)
  • In the Appalachian folktale, Tailypo,  (11:05) a man who lives alone in the woods cuts off and cooks the tail of a creature that tries to force its way through a hole in his cabin roof. During the night the creature returns for his tail.
  • In Ambrose Bierce’s Staley Fleming's Hallucination,  (6:56) a man wakes each night to see a large black dog staring at him.
  • In A Ghost Story,  (19:09) Mark Twain tells of sharing a room in New York City with the ghost of the Cardiff Giant, the Petrified Man.
  • Kaitie H.’s The Crawlspace  (26:30) is about an exchange student and her roommates who rent a fabulous apartment in Rome for very little money only to discover why.
  • H.P Lovecraft’s Pickman's Model  (34:52) is about an artist whose ghastly paintings cause his fellow artists to shun him. Only his friend Thurber remains loyal. And then Thurber discovers Richard Upton Pickman’s secret.
