9 Disturbing Audio Files That Will Strike Terror Into Your Heart

From the frenzied calls of individuals being attacked by chimpanzee, to a man coming face to face with the mysterious Big Foot through to the chilling confessions of the world's most dangerous serial killer - this collection of audio tapes is sure to keep you awake at night.

They range from the bizarre and deranged to the mysterious and unnerving. For our part, the most disturbing of all must be the tape of serial killer and torture advocate David Park Ray.

Admittedly he's not one of the most well-known killers in popular culture, but his crimes are truly the stuff of nightmares.

Trust us, these are all best listened to with the lights on and the doors firmly locked....

1. The Night Stalker

The Original Night Stalker is the name given to an unidentified serial killer that murdered at least ten people between the years 1979 and 1986 in Southern California.

This is the audio recording of a message left on one of the victim’s answering machines, which police have been given to believe is the true voice of the mysterious Night Stalker aka Richard Ramirez.

Convictions: Killed 14 victims, 5 Counts of attempted murder, 11 counts of sexual assault, 14 counts of burglary.

2. David Parker Ray

Serial killer David Parker Ray would force his victims to listen to a tape once they awoke in his terrifying sex dungeon. He had been through the process so many times that he figured it was just easier to hit play on the tape and simply stare at his victim.

Ray would hold women in his expensive "Toy Box" for months at a time, and was suspected of having killed dozens of them. This isn’t the original recording, rather a transcription read out by the uploader – be warned, much of the transcript contains extremely disturbing content.

Convictions: Suspected of killing 14-60 individuals, also charged with kidnapping, torture, rape, bestiality.

3. Chimpanzee Attack 911 Call

This harrowing 911 call was made after a woman’s pet chimpanzee attacked and began eating the face of her friend. This is one of many incidents that have led to calls for more widespread measures to prevent the domestication of apes.

4. 9/11 Kevin Cosgrove 911 Call

This chilling audio recorded from a 911 call gives a horrifying insight into the final moments of the World Trade Center office workers on September 11th, 2001. The call, made by business executive Kevin Cosgrove, took place just minutes before the first tower collapsed. The recording was used during the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, as part of the only criminal trials that resulted from the attack.

5. Audio recording of Jonestown Mass suicide

This massacre was the most deadly non-natural disaster for the US until the 911 attacks. Jim Jones was a preacher, he founded a racially integrated church in Redwood Valley, California. He wanted to make a communist community, so he leased some land in Guyana, and moved his followers there. There he founded the commune known as Jonestown.

Living conditions were hellish, and people were not allowed to leave, because of the use of armed guards. Congressman Ryan visits the town and though he seems impressed by it, he offers if anyone wants to go back to the mainland, they can go with him.

Few accept out of fear of Jones’ reaction. On the way back the congressman is attacked by Jonestown guards, and dies. Jones out of fear from US retaliation, scares his followers into thinking that suicide is the best option. Those who refused were encouraged by the armed guards. More than 900 people died that day. The recording is of their final moments

6. The Last Transmission Of Vladimir Komarov

Cosmonought Vladimir Komarov was sure that he was not going to survive his journey into orbit. The space vehicle was shoddily constructed and untested, and Komarov knew it wasn’t ready yet. However, he chose to go anyway, as his best friend Yuri Gagarin was the backup pilot, and would have had to go in his place. This audio recording is of Komarov cursing the Soviet Union officials, shortly before his death.

7. "Bigfoot" 911 Call

This audio recording is taken from a genuine 911 call made in 1990 by a Washington man. In the call, he claims there is a human-like figure outside of his house, initially crawling but eventually standing at an incredible 6 foot 9 inches. Creepiest of all, the being then apparently stands at stares at the man as he makes the call.

8. Area 51 Radio Phone Call

When it comes to call-ins from people claiming to be ex-government employees with insider information on extra-terrestrial beings, it’s easy to dismiss them as hoaxes.

This infamous call is somehow different to the others though, as the sincerity and terror in the voice of the caller is either some incredibly good acting, genuine delusion, or something far more terrifying?

9. The Weepy-Voiced Killer

This terrifying audio is taken directly from 911 calls made by Paul Michael Stephani. Also, known as the "Weepy-Voiced Killer" Stephani would send crazy, high-pitched calls to the police shortly after murdering his victims during a killing spree in the early 80s.
