Zoomers are now scared of empty rooms, What the fuck happened to this generation Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous Zoomers are now scared of empty rooms, What the fuck happened to this generation
heh well they were scared of the cold for 2 years too
Hope they release a real disease next time.
You're going to eat those words. You will get it and the day will come where you throw your arms up, BEGGING for it to stop, you sheltered zoomer retard.
that would require them to be competent, it's never going to happen
It’s literally just mental illness, and non-whites. For the first time in human history you’re “seeing” things meant to be seen through others lense of 80iq retardation blatant homosexual/pedo BDSM cult Friday night at fredos generation. Imagine your whole childhood and warm wholesome memories being replaced by satanic gay shit or mr beast. They’ll suspend you and severely discipline you for taking a Bible to school,ect
mexicans, theyre mostly mexicans and mutts who are being brainwashed on tiktok, nickelodeon tier shit, etc etc
their parents are absent in their lives being children themselves on the gibs dollars
You guys dont get it. Im a millennial, im 31. Back in the 2000s i was part of an after school club, i wantes to be helpul so after everyone left would help pack up supplies. This wpuld take like 15 minutes or so, i even told the teacher she could go i would pack stuff up, she trusted me so she would leave. After packing everything i would go out and call my mom to pick me up. I would have to walk in school after everyone had left, sometimes a like 7pm. And jt is a very weird feeling to walk around a lamce like that with no one in it, its creepy but a very unique kind of creepy because it is also peaceful. It is very unique, and i understand why it horror (if you can even call it that) became its own genre.
You are just retarded both my parents are teachers ive been in empty schools plenty during my childhood its not weird or creepy, shouting down the halls and hearing the echo was cool, me and my brother used to pretend to be swat and clear every room in the school which in the 90s was cool but nowdays we would prob get flagged as a school shooter
>a room with no internet or phone reception
>you might actually have to think about something on your own without being prompted or influenced to do so
For broccoli heads truly a fate worse then death on god frfr..
i only eat the broccoli heads
The horror comes when the realize there is literally nothing up there. They eventually just sit down and stare into nothingness, while they eventually die from starvation.
Oh, the nightmare beyond their comprehension
Ong no cap
>A room with no naggers in it
AAAGH HELP ME I'M GOING INSANE
Fear of silence because they have to hear their own thoughts pre-dates zoomers. Alan Watts talked about this 50 years ago.
fate worse than death broccoli heads fr fr
Have an upthumb my good man.
Boomers what do you feel when you watch this
may i have some context please? are these real places, cgi, animated? is this a video game?
it would probably make bank if it was, AAA gaming is so shit that TLOU2 won game of the year twice
procedurally generated poolrooms, producing an infinite dungeon like Minecraft, with the only enemy being the water level that rises an inch every hour
Digits checked. It is a good idea. VR too if possible
its not a real place
It was real on his mind!
Is this CGI? I'm too retarded to tell... if it isn't it's pretty cool and I would like to know where it is and what it's purpose is.
i think it's just blender animation with lots of effects. i suppose it's the natural progression from blair witch project style scary woods shaky cam shit to 3d rendered fantasy worlds made to look like vintage hipster nolstalgic dead space that zoomers got to experience in real life anyway, because the past is dead as well as the present, internet included.
*never got to experience
zoomers see the past as dead as they can visit derelict malls and let their warped minds wander, whereas in my born in 1981 mind, i can know what malls were and still can be: a place of fun and joy.
It looks very convincing. Even if the premise is stupid, the zoomer who made this is quite talented and I wish him success.
when the a.i. want to punish or torture us they can trap us in places like that, imagine the fear you are stuck there for 100 years, being chased by a giant centipede
It's obviously fake if you look at it on YouTube but computer graphics are getting really good.
You're like those retards that get tricked into thinking video game footage is real combat footage, i think some people must perceive reality differently to others
lol no. i wanted some context. relax you dumbass
>are these real places, cgi, animated?
Yes and it's a valid question, you blithering dolt. Maybe take the nagger dick out of your mouth next time you post so you sound less fucked in the head.
it's just a found footage trend not much different from Blair Witch.
Looks comfy. If I won the lottery I would build a house like this, no joke.
Same, I somehow like the unfriendly atmosphere it makes.
not scared just bored and lonely is how it makes me feel. But I guess those things are terrifying to nagger cattle zoomers.
not a boomer but uncomfortable. it's unnatural, cold, the space is illogical as is the depth of water and the holes in the wall give it a menacing feel
and there's nowhere to hide
The boomer and the mutt have become indifferent to the soulless corporate judeo-architecture, attracted to it even.
Is this a real place? It looks like AI meant to scare chronically online reddit zoomers. I guess if it's real, it's kind of weird that it exists but it is nothing to be afraid of.
fake as fuck
I dread at the maintenance of the pool
Why? It's not real.
Yeah but its still the scariest part of it
fuckin low iq post, get an imagination retard
how would you feel if this place was real?
>but it's not real though
but if it was, how do you think you'd feel about it?
>i don't get it, it's not real
You may dread. But no one dreads AT.
That's what the monsters are there for bro.
This would only be scary if I was there. Watching it is only mildly interesting until it turns boring.
I want to live there. I’m better adapted to the water than the land
30 year old boomer here.
Reminds me of 3d mandlebrot zooms.
30 year old is practically zoomer age though
>what do you feel when you watch this
too much water
t. IGN rewiever
peace and quiet
just the way i like it
That's interesting. He mixed the Liminal Hotel with the poolrooms. I love this shit, personally.
The 15 fps makes my eyes hurt
Liminal spaces are comfy as fuck. Zoomers keep trying to make it horror but I'd love to explore some Dreamcore or Liminal images.
Maybe it's because you didn't go outside growing up? Not even trying to be a dick, I'm just fascinated at the complete opposite reaction from me. It's like spatial ASMR to me, I love them.
Holy shit, this image reminds me of a dream I had when I was like 5 or 6 and that I've remembered to this day. I'm in a room looking out at a city or skyline made up of coloured shapes, a bit like this. Is this a common thing or liminal space?
Its the style of image from the "I Spy" books where you find a specific item.
ooh that brings me back
Oh this reminds me of a recurring dream I had as a kid. I was in this black void that had long stairways and platforms that made a labyrinth. They'd go up and go down and twist and curve everyway but it didn't seem there was a way out. I encountered shadow people I had to fight along the way. The last time I had this dream I killed one of the shadow people and they turned into a normal looking person then I found an exit door which let me out onto a street in Los Angeles.
Yes exactly, I like weird architecture and love pools or sitting in water. Seems like it'd be fun to walk around or sit and read.
I simply find is surreal, no more
Since i have real world experience that zoomies typically lack, The main thing i notice is how much work it would be to keep that area so clean of midlew, all the work to maintain and install the tile, and how large the building would be from the outside, basically just notice all the ways it's surreal but i don't feel fear and just find all the reactions to it odd.
A weird comfort.
It feels like a dream I kinda want to explore it.
It makes me feel sad in a way. There's this huge space, meant for humans to use, but none of them are. It's been forgotten for some reason. It's the same feeling you get when you drive through a neighborhood where you used to live, and remember all the good times you had there. But all those things are no more than memories, and the people you had those connections with are gone and have their own lives. A place that used to be full of people and joy is metaphorically empty, and that makes you feel sad. That's how the video makes me feel.
It often seems post-apocalyptic to me. Which is sad, but also peaceful, because the worst is over.
The worst is over, true. But also the best. Another comparison would be showing up to a party when everyone else is leaving.
i like it, the sounds are terrible though
these are the kind of spaces i would make if i were into 3d rendering
i'm also unironically into vaporwave
reminds me of exploring The Cistern in Tomb Raider. Some of the best ambient sounds.
"poolrooms" have been a source of comfort for me for a long time and all you zoomer homosexualy fucks barging in and making it some gay horror thing pisses me off to no end, grow a pair you fruity ass pussy
Nice, would want to be in there weeks to get a break from the insanity Zoomers are voting for.
Indifferent, not impressed. It's a render. I'm more scared of people.
Looks cool, always loved weird and surreal places. Can zoomies even appreciate games like Yume Nikki and LSD Dream Emulator?
>Yume Nikki and LSD Dream Emulator
these are horror games to them
Yume Nikki obviously has horror elements and takes place in someone's dreams and literal nightmares. Things antagonize you directly and result in negative outcomes. Being too numb or fluoridated to recognize situations that are potentially or even outright dangerous isn't something to be proud of.
I posted earlier that younger people try to make everything as simple and attention-getting as possible. This behavior has something in common with people that are obsessed with strict genre adherence and israeli political coverage, which is being unwilling to recognize any subtlety or complexity because it may result in people not reacting in a way that either clearly agrees or disagrees with you
>Yume Nikki obviously has horror elements
fair enough but i didn't read the rest of your post. zoomers are annoying and are scared by comfy environments.
kiddos these days will unironically be scared to shit by fucking default garry's mod maps, it's over.
>gm_construct is now a zoomer horror trope
tell 6 year old me after playing silent hill that this is where horror games would be in 2023, i'd have died on the spot
It’s really weird how as a child I used to have dreams/nightmares about spaces just like this. What is this in the zoomer psyche that causes us to fear these imaginary endless liminal spaces
It's not limited to zoomers. Ye aren't the only ones who have such dreams
Picrel. Way ahead of that shit
it looks so peaceful
This is nothing. Kind of nice
All that pool just for you
Makes me want to jump in. When I go swimming at my gym I go late night when no one else is around. I fucking hate people swimming near me or working out near me. Specially you zoomer homosexuals that are terminally online.
Looks like it hasn't been exposed to naggers yet.
I am already fatigued, why must you remind me that they exist?
I don't get why people are so angry over it. Its like being lost in the Odessa catacombs, just more playing on nostalgia. Actually it reminds me of when I was a kid, me and my grandmother would go for walks around her house when I spent time there and there was an out of use building that I believe was a changing room for an old run down and empty pool. Had the same type of tiling and whatnot.
I have a tile fetish, so rock hard.
Being alone in a pool it is unsetting, something about being alone next to a body of water.
Probably something evolution left in the brain or maybe the creator himself.
A huge and clean place where I can swim freely with nobody else around? SIGN ME UP
swiming pools are the best place to get a fungi infection, you are a flip flop away from disaster.
i dreamt of a place similiar to this when i was younger, a recurring dream. an endless structure, consiting of nothing but long corridors, and doors.
as it was recurring, i knew i was dreaming while there, and usually just threw open doors until i found one that had something inside i could kill myself with so i could wake up.
It is all ok till you realize that dreaming is the closest thing to death we experience and that maybe all those nightmares are what await us after.
if i got to open mysterious doors for the rest of eternity it would at least be a novel experience, finding out what's behind each door, and would certainly beat burning in hell or non-existance.
Nothing. It's like watching a stupid boring video on YouTube. Go do some urbex you shit head zoom zoom
I think zoomers are mentally ill for fantasizing about getting lost in locations that don't exist.
large tiled areas can be unsettling
Look comfy, I'd like to live there. No normies, just need food, clean water, some furniture, and my computer. Reminds of my old apartment which wahmen always said was "empty".
Lonely, but cozy, plus no naggers.
gimmie some food and water and I'll make the backrooms my bitch.
what an interesting place.
Not a boomer, but bored.
I'm 32, so not exactly a boomer, but it feels like a fake video and nothing more.
looks like a shoppiog mall from the 90s after hurriance andrew
I agree. This video/series is the only one that feels very dream-like, and is defining the "genre" for me. Most of the videos I saw are uninspired crap.
>this is not a pipe
>treachery of images
>youre all alone here
It's not the real world. It's a representation of fear of the real world. Stay inside your pod that you know, coom often and you'll be safe from lineal spaces.
so youre telling me i can sell a game that is simply a map with no other gameplay features and zoomers will pay for it?
I feel chill
The architecture, interior design & urban design nerd in me is triggered. Why does that one bridge have a massive column in the middle? Why are there no railings on some bridges & ledges? Why are there pool areas with no lighting of any kind?
Would make a cool place to explore, though.
I've always had dreams like that, but never been able to explain them to anyone.
Suddenly zoomers make it a huge internet cashcow meme.
Not sure how to feel about this.
It takes me back to a time when white people were the only people in the West and naggers were sticking sticks in their noses and eating each other.
I WANT TO FUCKING GO BACK!
it just looks interesting. if people think that's scary they would by traumatized for some of my dreams
genX here, honestly, if the water was clean and comfy I'd go for a swim, i fucking hate crowded pools
its nice and quiet for me to just finally relax
I'm annoyed that the water doesn't ripple when he's wading through it, and when wading he has absolutely no resistance from the water. actually walks faster and smoother than when he's out of water
I like Backrooms content but the lack of a climax in a lot of the content feels like getting cockblocked.
I can only watch so many minutes of footage of some guy wandering around an early 90's abandoned hotel render before I expect a good monster jump scare.
>early 90's abandoned hotel render
That confuses me too. How they use rendered spaces.
There are videos of people actually going to abandoned malls but these kids prefer a fake recreation to get spooked by.
Interesting point. Maybe the real thing isn't on their radar because they never experience the 20th century. But vidja they have experienced.
As someone that actually did that exploring, exploring unrealistic worlds is also very fun.
Especially when they are rendered nicely like some of these videos.
Think about all of those MMOs that have died. All of those RPGs with huge worlds. Imagine if they were made to-scale just for you to explore.
Imagine all the worlds in sci-fi films that never get released to the public. The hundreds of man-hours that goes in to building tools to populate these worlds... only for them to be covered in smog...
Would the Backrooms be a good place for White Resistance Groups to hide in?
I like the lost in the hyperverse channel, its long but it does have a nice world building element to it
Ngl I find it kind of relaxing though not creepy or whatever else
They send most of their time around other people, in contact with other people, etc.
The idea of being alone in a large empty space is foreign to them. They never lived in a world where you weren't tethered to another human being via a device. Alone, with your own thought, with nothing but air around you.
They also find old media "creepy" because it's foreign and the visuals aren't clear.
These types of videos use an artificial filter to make it look like old video camera and old media glitches like static.
There are kids who have never experiences static from a TV or radio. It's alien to them.
It's so sad. I was born in 1980 so lived an analog life in my early years: tuning in a fuzzy distant TV station was like magic (now digital over the air TV is all or nothing, crystal clear) and the very static channels themselves where showing a signal that included remnants of the Big Bang background radiation on screen. You watching movies on film with scratches that showed their history, and indeed my childhood home movies are on super 8mm film (the last generation to have that). PBS showed haunted, creepy old educational shows in blocks during the afternoon when you played hooky (look up "Read all about it" - the stuff of nightmares like kids Doctor Who).
Zoomies want to experience this, have shows like Stranger Things which are looking at this stuff through a lens darkly when the actual experience was so much more. Vicariously trying to recapture all this organic stuff, like paying $$$ for old VHS tapes of 90s cartoons etc.
Kek, this. Also Stranger Things is shit, just another “Spot any 1980s pop culture media, food, etc” compilation show.
I'm a Millennial and I sometimes want to just smash the screens. Analog world was much nicer.
These anons get it. I feel the same.
>And the places themselves are beautiful. They give me a peaceful, nostalgic feeling. I can almost smell them.
>Sure, being trapped somewhere is scary, but if that's all, then zoomers have a really low bar for horror and spooky stuff.
Generally speaking I agree.
This guy is a real artist who makes incredible shit. The peaceful, nostalgic feeling you mentioned is strong with his work, yet they are disturbing too in parts. I think this one is a CGI masterpiece. The hallways full of softly moving flowers are so beautiful.
>in contact with other people
I saw some study that showed upwards of 30% or even 40% of zoomers spend iirc 30-40 hours a week completely alone. As in, cooped up in their bedrooms playing video games or browsing social media, avoiding contact with IRL friends (if they even have any) and their family. But they don't consciously feel alone because of these digital social platforms.
The concept of "liminal spaces" probably reminds them of how alone they really are by removing the aspect of interaction with faceless strangers, at least on a subconscious level. Like, "at the end of the day this is what your life is really like if you look past all the fake digital entertainment and false social interaction: empty and devoid of life."
Another way to look at it is how a lot of big twitter accounts after Musk took over had somethin like 90% or more of their followers wiped out cuz they were all bots. I saw someone describe it as "the sudden realization that you were talking to an empty void, filled only with robotic yes-men." The backrooms is a good metaphor for that kinda social phenomenon, I think. Of course a lotta these types were basically already deluding themselves in the first place, how often have you seen a tweet get only a couple hundred likes when the account's follower count is in the tens or hundreds of thousands, or even millions?
But still, being forced to face the reality of the situation one way or another is uncomfortable and unsettling, even if it's done through "liminal spaces" as a weird metaphor. I don't think this is really the intent by much or any backroom-style horror media, but it's interesting to think about. The types of people I described would be the type of person most likely to get heavily invested in this genre of internet memes, and thus the type of person most likely to be affected by it.
big brain posters arrive
ty anon, I try hard on all of my posts (except this one)
very good effort post anon, thank you
the big digital switch is when we shifted to the hell timeline
It's repressed nudism
>It's repressed nudism
Empty room means they have no constant stimuli.
It's scary because then all they are left with is their brain, unless they use their phone of course.
But imagine... imagine their phone just... ran out of battery.. Then they are forced to be stuck with no stimuli. How horrible.
Places that should have people but don't are inherently creepy
like a blm rally or a draq queen story hour?
those aren't intended to have people, only subhumans
I's not just a simple "empty room" it's empty rooms that go on forever. the thought of being trapped in such a place is unsettling for anyone
Modern suburbs have conditioned the goyim to feel right at home in such hellscapes
The creepy factor of "liminal spaces" is the nonsensical architecture, stairs that go nowhere, repeating columns, rooms that make no functional sense, massive facilities that seem to serve no purpose.
The monsters are what makes it truly scary, the content is pretty dead now though, a year ago it was still fresh.
>The monsters are what makes it truly scary
if you're 12 years old then I can see that
wrong. the threat must be perceivable, albeit subtly, or else its literally just a quirky room
t. I am a deep understander of fear
Backrooms aren't scary like some jump scare flick you utter homosexual. The original idea was that they feel "off" and alien. The whole monster crap is such a shitty gimmick and has nothing to do with the original premise.
Would you like to spend an eternity in a room like that, alone, with no one knowing you're there? The horror derives from the implication. The zoomer "liminal space" meme makes a profound commentary on the inhuman nature of modern infrastructure. Buildings and cities are not made for human beings, but to serve as capital production farms. Blank surfaces and corporate shapes are efficient, but they're ugly and cause us to experience distress on a subconscious level.
The other side of the point you're making is how brutalist much of the architecture is in liminal spaces, imo distinctly reminiscent of communist bloc architecture before the fall of the Soviet Union and Iron Curtain.
Back before the later 00s a large portion of business buildings, outside of like office buildings, were designed with being experienced by people in mind, as opposed to purely efficient and bland. Compare a modern McDonald's to one from the 80s, for instance.
but this still, maybe unintentionally, loops back around to the point you are making. Extreme and soulless "end stage capitalism" is a product of israelites and israeli influence, much like how bolshevism is a distinctly israeli ideology.
israelites are why sparsely designed, efficient, brutalist architecture exists, and the fight or flight instincts of zoomers and millennials are activated by being exposed to it.
this is the most retarded take on liminal spaces I’ve seen thus far
You got a better one? I think that anon has a piece of it at least. The blandness of the space betokens its primary function: commerce. And an abandoned such space shows something with no purpose. It can’t serve as a living space and it’s not aesthetic or beautiful at all. It’s a corpse. There’s something abyssal about it.
This is called agoraphobia
Thats open spaces, not sparsely populated areas
>live in giant concrete mouse utopia all your life
>can't handle being taken out of your cage
Like a cat that's been indoors its whole life and suddenly their owner decides to make them be an outdoors cat.
open spaces are often sparsely populated and vice versa.
Zoomers suffer from a lack of logos. And by logos I mean beatings.
Most of today's fears are learned behaviour.
It probably reminds them of a video game.
>It probably reminds them of a video game.
I finally played HalfLife 2 in 2012 when I turned 18 and was finally allowed to. Something about the game, the textures, the atmosphere, the sounds, reminded me of my very very early childhood. I don't know what. It almost evoked windows XP and just very early childhood memories. I can't explain it. I'm talking memories from pre 2003. Something about old source specifically really taps into something primal in me.
the whole "backrooms" concept is explicitly based on going out of bounds in a video game, so yeah einstein
>there's no place to sit and rest
Literally false if you watch the video. This guy has to be retarded kek.
The point of the liminal space/backrooms genre was the absence of anything tangible within them. The fear comes from being isolated alone in a vaguely familiar and yet at the same time foreign environment. It’s not so much that there is monsters or no monsters, it’s the fear of the potential unknown, that there could be something waiting around the next corner or there could be an infinite nothingness in which you are trapped forever. The whole thing was ruined when iPad raised, dopamine deficient zoomers started making up shit like ‘what if on level 69 of the backrooms™, thanos made you beat him in a game of Russian roulette’ type shit. ‘What if we took your existential dread and fear of the unknown and filled it with CONTENT don’t forget to like and subscribe and hit the bell to get notifications of when we next upload!’.
>there's nobody here to spew my normie clout chasing at creepy AHHHHHHHH!
Zoomers scared of a lack of stimulation….
This the average attention span of a zoomer is 8 seconds
Newfags, liminal space is from 19th century.
they're also scared of their own genitals and doing anything for themselves
stupid lazy naggers
>Mfw those pool rooms remind me of better times in the 90s when the world wasn't full of naggers and I used to go swimming a lot.
I don't find fear in them, instead they're a reminder of better world and have a melancholy theme to them because of it.
Same with the mall spaces, I can basically smell those places through the monitor and it makes me miss that era.
Lack of movement or noise from nearby life could be a sign that there’s a predator nearby stupid chud
Liminal spaces with the cast of characters in your picture is what terrifies me.
Lmao at boomers hating on zoomer indie films when their horror icons are literally dudes in facepaint and dolls that swear a lot.
The backrooms is just a cheap rip off of the SCP foundation
SCP foundation is sonic level retarded autism
blair witch project was a genius concept. to really understand the movie you had to watch the documentary that came out before it and it was done in the style of forensic detective shows. it explained the case and locations that you later saw
I fucking hated IT so much.
It's still garbage. The remake is even more garbage.
Long story short it is just some creepy footage that makes it look like found footage from people that phased through the ground in to some weird alternate dimension where the laws of physics don't make sense.
Some sort of unreality cobbled together from real reality, so you have fucked architecture that echoes the real stuff, things in places where it shouldn't be.
I guess that is a good way to describe it, a noisy echo of the real world that stretches to infinity.
boomer horror would be 80's slashers you tried tho
Nobody with a brain unironically considers “the Blair witch project” on par with something like the butterfly effect, this is terrible fucking example you cocksucker
House of Leaves was published in 2000. It makes sense that this genre was picked up by zoomers though; they grew up in a decaying society. They've never seen a bustling shopping mall.
As a 40 year old "boomer" this looks cool as fuck to me, nostalgia overdrive. Like I am 8 again. Would totally swim here, put on some music, have beers.
What's with these videos though? Are they old footage, or are they filmed to look old, and if that is the case, why are the pools full of water still?
they claim it is cgi but I think it is deep state a.i., with the prompt training it how to scare people
looks like a room for sickos
Looks like a 70s sci-fi waterpark. I could straight up see a star wars vacation scene in this environment.
I used to dig up and post liminal spaces on /x/ years ago. What I recall often being investigated wasn't some kind of creepypasta terror, but a shared phenomenon of multiple people recognizing the same images in our dreams. They were often of places in the 1980's or 1990's likely due to odd childhood memories resurfacing during sleep. The images were often low-res or blurry because they have that dreamlike effect to it. The obviously bogus VCR filter found footage thing is something zoomers just added.
Based on this I can definitely see how it became appealing as a horror genre.
You will live in a dormitory
It's just media capturing a specific kind of eerieness. There's no deeper insightful commentary on the west's rapid decline or whatever here. You're literally politicizing a horror creepypasta that came from fucking LULZ you dumb canadian retard.
israelitetube was fucking plastered with this shit zoomer content for a couple of years.
Absolutely despise it.
>DAT INDOOR SWIMMING POOL BE BUSSIN SPOOPY FRFR NOCAP SWEAR ON GOD
There's seriously something wrong with their brains.
>UH ACKCHUALLY ITS ABOUT THE ARCHITECHURR AND FEEWING LONELY AND DREAD AND BLA BLA BLA
Shut up. If this scares you, you're a fucking homosexual.
how does it not creep you out, it is presenting total surreal, hopeless isolation. like being trapped in a dream.
He's german, things that scare him are nationalism, someone calling him racist, standing up for yourself, and national independence from America, not internet horror.
Oh the seething.
Just make fun of Germany, doesn't change the fact that everybody wants to leave your gypsy shithole for my country, and that 90% of all cheap prostitutes are Bulgarian.
Bulgaria was always shit. We had nothing to lose to begin with, it was all over in the 14th century.
You, on the other hand, have only yourself, your father, and your grandfather to blame. Enjoy eradication.
We're thankful for de-gypsifying of our country shipping them off to you like old times sake
>it is presenting total surreal, hopeless isolation. like being trapped in a dream.
The trapped in a dream thing has been a horror trope for decades.
Also, this is such a low hanging fruit. "What if place, but you cannot leave place?" "SO SCARY!".
You could just do the same with being trapped in a room without a door or whatever.
And the places themselves are beautiful. They give me a peaceful, nostalgic feeling. I can almost smell them.
Sure, being trapped somewhere is scary, but if that's all, then zoomers have a really low bar for horror and spooky stuff.
Go watch The Witch if you want spooky.
>And the places themselves are beautiful. They give me a peaceful, nostalgic feeling. I can almost smell them.
>Sure, being trapped somewhere is scary, but if that's all, then zoomers have a really low bar for horror and spooky stuff.
>Liminal spaces are comfy as fuck. Zoomers keep trying to make it horror but I'd love to explore some Dreamcore or Liminal images.
>Maybe it's because you didn't go outside growing up? Not even trying to be a dick, I'm just fascinated at the complete opposite reaction from me. It's like spatial ASMR to me, I love them.
these anons get it
It doesn't freak me out. I actively seek out to have dreams like that.
I lucid dream all the time with shit like that, just exploring random places that make no real sense by relying on the fact that the brain itself has a rough approximation of the world, offsets of offsets, no real solid foundations.
Hell, I posted in some of the very first backrooms threads about lucid dreams I had similar to the idea where I fell in to the reflections in my bath and ended up in some huge nonsensical swimming pool, later figured out I could walk through other places and just went exploring.
The only thing I feel when I see those renders is nostalgia and comfy.
Reminds me of the Indoor swimming halls of my childhood.
modern architecture is unpleasant.
Backrooms is a fun creepy concept. An unreal artificially repetitive environment that seems eerily malevolent in a way you can't quite put your finger on. Its a reflection of the banal repetitive architecture of modern urban life.
That's how it should of stayed, cause thats a good idea and I like infinite environments. But of course zoomie zooms cant let it lie, they have to have le deep lore and spooky monster and heckin almond water or whatever retarded shit they've added at this point.
I hope they never find samosbor because it's basically the non-cringe soviet commieblock version.
The 'liminal horror' concept is relatively new. This is just what happens to new things, it starts off as the brainchild of some unique and profound artists, and then it descends as people begin to recognize how brilliant the idea is. The idea passes through an increasingly talentless procession of writers and artists until you have literal children using it as a trope, and then it becomes passé.
Not that this idea is necessarily new, just look at Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 movie, Stalker. Ideas are constantly recycled and reworked. I'm not too worried about the future of liminal horror.
what a pointless thread
you all sound like literal 60 year old whining boomers
I don't give a fuck about what zoomers are doing, they aren't white
>you all sound like
>implying we give a fuck about our image
Suck a cock you impressionable homosexual
They are a representation of loneliness. We live sort of comfortable lives now, so we lost the fear of some predator creature lurking around to kill us. Being lonely and lost I guess the biggest fear of zoomers.
>They are a representation of loneliness. We live sort of comfortable lives now, so we lost the fear of some predator creature lurking around to kill us. Being lonely and lost I guess the biggest fear of zoomers.
That's very well put. I think being lonely and lost is actually a deep fear of most people, goes back to childhood neglect/fears often, probably.
Raised or more to the point not raised by Gen X / Boomer parents much like mellenials.
I like the concept of liminal spaces but retards who don't understand will think it's because I think it's sooooo spooky duuude. I just think they're neat and the feelings they evoke aren't fear or even unease, just a sense of curiosity and wonder and probably a bit of nostalgia for old PS1 games.
You got it. I loved to explore old vidya and this gives me that feeling. Like Myst/Riven or The Neverhood. I wish there were places where you could go in real life to explore an alien world alone.
Deserts evoke those feelings in some people. I’ve gone off on my own in the desert with nothing but a jug of water and it felt like an alien planet. Weird tilts in the ground like picrel, no people but the feeling of being watched, found something locals call the witches cave that was a pentagon shaped hole in the ground, mirages from the heat, I came upon a rock with water shooting straight out of the middle of the rock, and then found more with the same thing. I was so surprised I almost drank it but thankfully I didn’t because I later found out it was pure sulfur
Nice pic. Imagine living on a place like this.
For waste management just launch it all into space
>just a sense of curiosity and wonder
Something about 90s raytraced art that I love, can't explain it
Reminds me of that Are you afraid of the dark episode where they were growing some alien eggs in the basement pool room
Jesus they type like fags.
Zoomers dont have a personalty so they have to pretend to have normal emotions to appear interesting. They live in a fake electronic world full of likes and dislikes. Those likes and dislikes are all that matters to them.
This is what happens when you are a cell phone social media zombie who never lives in the real world...
I have a very defining childhood memory. There was this theme park that was basically a child-sized indoor city. The thing was huge, and you could run around and the "rides" were more like jobs, where you got to perform tasks and receive money, and then use that money to get snacks. They even had a child-led police force and if you got sent to jail, there was a game to break out of jail. Well, I went a few times and it was always packed. You could go an hour and not see another adult, just a city of children.
One visit, I went right before it closed, during the off season, and it was just me and a few other kids in the whole city. I got to explore the park by myself and that feeling of basically being alone stuck with me. I think that's why I really enjoy these kinds of aesthetic liminal images so much. I've never really captured that experience again, and I'd like to.
it's called a doseum like a museum but you do things, i take my kid to one all the time
Following in the steps of their soilord pseudoparents on youtube, young internet addicts tend to want to take anything that may evoke an emotion, even a vague complicated one, and turn it into MAXIMUM REACT easily understandible base emotion. If you're not a midwit zombie, uncanny spaces will probably have an effect on you, but it can be described in different ways and have a different effect depending on your previous experiences.
There is actually a market for people who want to see and experience things like this. In reality you tend to need a balance between uncanny emptyness and visual candy to keep people's interest.
>You wrote me a letter asking me if my latest work was the most terrifying thing I have ever imagined. Yes, in fact it is, but my imagination is not nearly as terrifying as the reality in which we live. What could be more terrifying than the idea of a multitude of naggers, running around free and unabated in a white society? If only we had left them alone, the white man would be free to roam the stars. They would never have gotten off of their godforsaken continent if we had not built the boats to bring them over. In all their history, no nagger had ever built one single ship that could thake them across the continents. Yet, in no due thanks to our part, naggers roam in every corner of the world, spreadin their filth and their stench, and procreating with women of other species, mostly by forcible means of rape. I ask you, what could be more horrifying than the truth?
My city has a big indoor garden downtown I used to love when I was in highschool. I left my hometown to check out Vancouver for a couple years and had a tough time finding work when I returned. Had to use a temp agency for a little while. One of my first jobs with them was with a demo company that was redoing the floor of that garden. The place I remembered so fondly was now devoid of all the exotic plant life, water features and sparrows that had snuck in and would visit you while you were eating hoping you'd share a bite of sandwich.
All of it was gone, removed and either torn down or in the process of. The work was in the dead of night. I hated being part of the process of dismantling what was an iconic part of my young life. I remember looking up at the large skyward facing windows. A black featureless sky behind it, and reflected back was the grey concrete and desolate pathways with my reflection staring back at me in the middle of it.
I felt for a moment like the only person in the world, like a man on the moon in the coldest, emptiest sense of the notion.
And then you went home to your chink family and then got euthanized because it’s Canada
There used to be something like this in Niagara ny.
It's because they are afraid to be alone with their own thoughts 😐
It's because you're stuck forever in an infinite indoor empty desolate place. Deeper and deeper, never see the sky again.
those videos are bizarre, it isn't because it's empty. A.I made videos are terrifying, I am not sure if we are supposed to look at them
>Zoomers are now scared of empty rooms
all of them? Your research is this one stupid comment?
Liminal spaces are comfy to me. Am I unwell anons? I’m starting to worry I’m schizoaffective
No, if you can also tolerate time in alone in nature away from civilization.
turns out HRT makes you afraid of empty rooms
this anon gets it
it frightens them becasue there is no validation of thier sexuality.
there is not one to force their sexuality on, and no State to enforce it.
Then they begin having thoughts of their own...
the sociopath fears loneliness because there's nobody to control
I'd bet you 100$ if you asked 1000 zoomers what "the backrooms" are, 90%+ of them would have no idea wtf you're talking about.
99% of backrooms "levels" aren't even liminal spaces anymore, just stupid shit like "spooky forest with entity #3397 chasing you". It's become SCP 2.0 for real, and I wouldn't be surprised if there is already a tranny level
This captures the transition from /x/ backrooms to leddit backrooms pretty well.
Lots of people ITT over analyzing it just like the zoomies are.
to be honest /x/ disappointed me many times, it never scared me, not even once. Maybe is because i am almost 32, but I never met a thread that scared me.
Yup they really fucked it up
Zoomers have more phobias than Wade Duck on US Acres.
They are actually scared to be alone in a room in case a nogger walks in but they can't admit that.
nagger, the subliminal space horror genre started on LULZ. The whole thing is a meme. God damn I swear LULZ eats fucking buckets of bait.
nothing scary about the backrooms. id like to chill in one. if there's no people that is. and if i could theoretically eat, drink, shit, piss without issue.
It's more unsettling than "ahhh scary monster arches itself backwards and walks on all 4's" that movies have been pulling for the last 20 something years. I'll give zoomers this one. They sometimes take the "spooky liminal space" shit too far and just show a photo of a regular fucking room but I think the concept has good foundation
it's because rape shrek lives in liminal spaces
he's like a lovecraftian creature that can only exist in these spaces like the liminal spaces themselves are their own concious dimension that manifests a rape shrek.
As a boomer who grew up watching stephan king and non of the shrek movies this horrifying concept frightens me as well
Empty minds, empty hearts, empty souls.
>Retard doesn't understand liminal terror
It's about being lost in an endless maze of similar rooms of totally bland apperance. It's not being in a normal room you retard. haha
The whole liminal spaces fad is actually interesting in that it may be inadvertently exposing people to how modernism in architecture entirely stripped away the unity of beauty, grace, inspiration and purpose that classic architecture had achieved. Whether it's an office building in Backrooms or a 1980s mall/hotel/convention space in Poolrooms, the viewer cannot help but recognize the anti-human brutalism in these fictional spaces as something they see all around them in the real world and are hopefully left to wonder why, and by who (it's the israelites).
>The whole liminal spaces fad is actually interesting in that it may be inadvertently exposing people to how modernism in architecture entirely stripped away the unity of beauty, grace, inspiration and purpose that classic architecture had achieved.
no because that's the basis of liminal horror, being lost in brutalist style architecture or soulles architecture that doesn't seem to have any purpose for humans, and then you are lost in it forever and can't find your way out just endless rooms in any direction.
It is by itself a horror based on critique of brutalistic and simplistic architecture. Because it's so dead and soulless that if you were surrounded by nothing like it it actually terrorizes you subconciously.
There's also an entire torture method using liminal terror, it's called 'white torture' and it actually drives the person insane, which it is intended to.
Everything in the cell is painted white, there are no shadowes of any kind. And the food is bland, and there's no sounds either/sound proof room.
This is literally torture based on liminal terror.
A backrooms open-world survival game would be fun.
Especially if the game could generate AI people to interact with as well. From a horror perspective it's shit, but as an adventure concept it's neat.
As we zoomers grew up, we recognized that we were growing up in a civilization that was just exiting it's prime. We watched the mega-malls and shopping plazas built during the end of America's golden era in the 80's-90's shrivel up and fall into disrepair into the 2010's. We now live surrounded by abandoned shopping malls, neighborhoods, parks, schools, and the like as all of the wealth in America concentrates itself on the shores and most of the inland is slowly abandoned. The era of plenty came to an end, and we're left with these strange, uncanny ruins from a time when people had enough money to practically buy whatever they wanted and didn't live paycheck to paycheck.
We look upon them with awe. Where are all of the people? Where are we supposed to hang out? Why is everything falling apart? It's almost like "civilizational horror" if you will.
You best be getting out there and explore those places before they get levelled for good.
Exploring shit like this was fun as fuck.
Just be prepared to leg it or wreck a cunt.
What in the fuck is that?
I really enjoy liminal horror, sucks that these kids had to ruin it like how they ruined slenderman. The "my house" mod for Doom did liminal horror really well.
The zoomers have to be pranking us. This is le epic prank right? No one is legit scared by empty rooms.
>The zoomers have to be pranking us. This is le epic prank right? No one is legit scared by empty rooms.
It's called liminal horror and liminal torture is forbidden by the geneva convention. Iran and others do it. It's called 'white torture'.
Liminal horror is just riffing on that. Featuring brutalist architecture or bland rooms, repeating rooms etc.
Actual white torture drives you pretty much fucking insane, go read about it. It's a torture method that is extremely effective. What they did in guanatanamo bay is 'sort of' like it but not as bad as the actual thing which they do in iran for example.
>"Since I left Evin, I have not been able to sleep without sleeping pills. It is terrible. The loneliness never leaves you, long after you are 'free.' Every door that is closed on you.... This is why we call it 'white torture.' They get what they want without having to hit you. They know enough about you to control the information that you get: they can make you believe that the president has resigned, that they have your wife, that someone you trust has told them lies about you. You begin to break. And once you break, they have control. And then you begin to confess.
The room is white, the clothes are white, you are served white rice, on white plate, to ask for something you have to pass a white piece of paper through a hole in the white door. There are no sounds, you are not allowed to speak, the room is constantly illuminated so it's very hard to sleep, and there are no shadows. Just keep you there for 8 months or how long it takes for you to break completely.
You'd never mock liminal terror ever again if you just tried that for 4 days. haha
Why does it only affect young people if it is such effective torture?
>Why does it only affect young people if it is such effective torture?
It doesn't idiot. They use it in iran and other places. The backdoor rooms and other liminal horror is just mild liminal horror, not the torture version which is that on steroids or works on same principles.
You're conflating two things. If the IRL liminal torture room was a million square feet of white padding it wouldn't have any effect. You're getting hung up on the homogeneity and confusing it with sensory deprivation which causes parts of the mind to shut down. These videos are popular for their implied other-worldly surreality. Also show flag
>You're conflating two things. If the IRL liminal torture room was a million square feet of white padding it wouldn't have any effect.
you don't get the principle cause you're a fucking idiot who know nothing and understand nothing.
The very reason zoomies add monsters is cause they themselves are unnerved by simply the liminal space. The reason these backend rooms are somewhat unnerving is also a clue why 'white torture' works. Because if there's no monsters and it's same rooms forever, it become staring into nothingness being completely alone in a very uncomfortable setting that has no useful function to you.
That's how liminal torture also works with 'white torture', in actual liminal torture it's not an endless rooms, it's 1 room with no escape, and it's all painted white, the food is white, plate is white, clothes is white, there are no sounds, you are not allowed to speak or you get beaten severely. There are no shadows and the room is constantly illuminated.
So it's like you stare into the abyss, as if you are nowhere and are completely alone!
That's why zoomies add monsters and dumb shit because that concept by itself is too unsettling for them. If it was just same repeating rooms, forever! then it's like you can walk forever and get nowhere, it's like it's no longer a room it's an endless abyss.
When they do this in iran and other places they are often traumatized for life afterwards. And easily end up confessing to whatever they want them to confess to, just to escape it.
It doesn't only affect young people, you're just looking too deep into it.
The whole point is being trapped in an endless maze of uncanny architecture (the poolrooms seem like a tame example, I actually find them somewhat comfy), with no food or drinkable water to be found, and a constant uncertainty if you're alone. As days go by leading up to your death via dehydration, you'd manage to get so little sleep that you'd begin hallucinating, visually and audibly, for the last day or two you're alive, making the stress and desperation of finding a way out that much worse.
That's literally it, anything else is looking too deep into it. Or falls into the zoomified SCP-tier backrooms that has actual monsters that would only make the suffering last a whole day.
How is looking at empty rooms sensory deprivation? It's just boring.
>How is looking at empty rooms sensory deprivation? It's just boring.
it's not it's mild horror that plays into the same thing where you are stuck in a place of endless rooms and there's no where to go. The actual torture method 'white torture' operates on that principles and takes it to the nth level but the principle of why liminal rooms are slightly horrifying is the same reason why the torture works so effectively that it can traumatize you for fucking life for those who have been tortured by it in places like iran where they do it.
It's hit-or-miss for people, like slasher movies. It isn't necessarily "scary," it's more "unnerving." The settings look artificial and out-of-place, and often times they mix this with shades of color and ancillary objects that harken back to a sort of nostalgia for the late 90's/early 2000's.
Here's one problem
Usually people who think like Vaush do not know how big or complex the World really is and can't think much past the United States. These are the same people bitching about weak-ass Conservatives believing that the United States is the World btw.
Most zoomers are subhumans
>reddit naggers are whining that the backrooms lore is being trolled by other reddit naggers
Just watch the Kane Pixels stuff because he's actually good at it.
Yes there's monsters deal with it pussy.
I think it's that they unconsciously sense that there used to be something in these empty spaces. The world used to be alive with people, flourishing businesses, buildings put to productive use, and now all that is left is the husk. A long dark hallway leading nowhere or like in a nursing home where rich Boomers wait for death. The existential dread and the emptiness of it all. It's not supposed to be this way. Someone fucked things up and there's evidence of how things used to be but the life is gone from it.
I have a photograph that I took of an empty room with a single chair in it. It's creepy as hell and I can't explain why.
This. I go to a lot of empty villages because of my job and there's always this sense of unease at seeing a place that's used to be fully of life just completely empty.
I could walk through a forest by myself for hours and not feel anything wrong, but abandoned man-made area spooks me like nothing else.
Probably not all of them and just the extroverts
Zoomers sit in their rooms all day scaring each other with animated films about endlessly large spaces. This time, the cigar is most certainly a penis.
I feel bad people think this is zoomers. I was thinking of liminal horror before it was even called that. Anyway i like it, i dont know why people complain about it.
for me its trypophobia
I never understood the problem with this either.
>I never understood the problem with this either.
because you instinctively think there's some kind of creature burrowed in there, which there often is. Do you look at a piece of fruit that look like that and go.
and just take a gigantic bite where it has those sort of holes or whatever? kek
Zoomers have no connection with reality, only depictions of it.
It looks diseased. You see it and subconsciously think of it as disease. Its inherited from your ancestors who endured plagues in Europe.
this shit must be instinctive so you don't stick your dick in something as diseased as this.
i saw this redhead porn star with STD bumps in her pussy and it scarred me for a long time
This torture of sensory manipulation/sensory deprivation in this specific manner is also so well understood that it's banned under international law. Because it's not simply detainment or imprisonment but is actually torture, that easily can drive a person insane.
Can you imagine being like that for just 1 or 2 weeks. I don't think you can. Some are held for months like that, every day is same, no sounds can't make sound, no sound in room no sound outside room, no shadows, food is white clothe white, shoes white, utensils white, it becomes then 'endless' because there's zero external stimuli you can't differentiate anything in the room from anything else! there's no shadows it's constantly iluminated aswell making sleeping hard.
It's almost like you prefer being beaten or other things atleast you could tell one thing from the other! The loneliness and despair must be so fucking extreme that you sink down into the fucking ground.
I love being alone in buildings.
still pretty funny to me that something created on /x/ can reach the mainstream so easily
Its just the zoomer equivalent of the "abandoned carnival in the middle of the night" shit. Ooh, this Spring Rider duck sure is spooky when it has faint rust and chipped paint under poor lighting conditions.
the irony is the older generations actually visited those carnivals in person to put the image of an abandoned one in their mind. zoomers are afraid of offices because those are the easiest to render on their compooters.
I look at the thumbnail.
The reflection on the water.
The wavy ceiling. Rounded edges everywhere.
And at no point do I think brutalist. I think.
>holy shit this is trippy
>can you imagine this lit up with blacklights and glowsticks
>the reflections look like fucking mountains
>and I bet the colors would make aurora borealis
someone else mentioned lack of logos, but he's right
zoomers dont have a religion, i wonder if they even have thoughts
they are always on their phones or listening to podcasts/music, they never just sit there quietly
