Just In Time For The Halloween: Here Are The Ultimate Scary Text Prank Ideas

Oct 19, 2021

It's that time of the year - pumpkin spice, skeletons, jump scares - but most importantly, pranks! With that, Ownage Pranks is here for this year's ultimate scary text prank ideas you can pull off to spook your friends and family! Are you ready to send those creepy texts to people? Let's get to it!

A Guide To Scary Text Pranks For Halloween

Many believe scary text pranks are just as old as the technology itself, but in reality, this is a relatively new phenomenon. In fact, it only gained popularity after texting became a popular form of communication.

First, to understand what a text prank is, think about when your parents sent you "I love you" text messages. If that's not annoying, then we don't know what is. Whether you were thirteen years old or eighty, it's tough to imagine your parents receiving that message and loving it.

Now compare that to when someone texts you, "Hey, did you know that elephants poop on dead people?" If you still don't get the humor, I guess the next best thing would be to send back a single emoji (which will clearly be "no").

The basics of a scary text prank

Have you ever received a text message that contained something incredibly innocuous, but you spent the entire day wondering why the person texting you is so dumb?

It might sound familiar. You just sent the text without giving it much thought, and yet you end up having the worst day ever because of it.

What not to do in a scary text prank

Don't tell your sister you hate her. No one wants to be a dummy to their best friend and vice versa.

Don't tell your partner you're going to see a movie or an event. People are pretty good at interpreting those.

Don't threaten your significant other with Halloween costume ideas. Make it fun and interesting, and they won't even try to get you back.

Don't drop a text and then pick it up immediately because it's taking too long to load. If it takes too long to load, you've probably sent it.

How about a scary prank call action? We suggest you check our prank calling app if you’re in for some real-time action. This works seamlessly because of our advanced AI voice recognition technology. We won’t spoil you any more of the fun details so we suggest you just download them right now!

The best tips for scary text pranks

Most of these scary text pranks are harmless and will only make your friends laugh, but it's always a good idea to exercise caution. Remember to ask yourself — would I feel comfortable in the position to do this? While they're harmless, if you find someone is being abusive, like a mass murderer or drug dealer, they may not be the right prank to pull on them.

There are a few key components that you'll need to have if you want to pull a prank. While they are relatively small, their impact is monumental. First, the initial conversation needs to come out naturally and have a light and casual tone. Just like you wouldn't send someone a text message from your mom's phone, you should never make someone look like they're in a text conversation from some random person's phone. That being said, if your target gets in a mood to talk (spoiler alert), you can get away with it.

Sending a Random Text

Texting can seem like a quick way to start a conversation with anyone, but it isn't always a successful strategy. Don't let a few missed opportunities for a successful scary text prank ruin your day. Be sure to have something interesting to talk about before you press the send button.

Creative ideas for texting pranks

If you're concerned about getting caught (even though that won't stop you), you'll want to be creative in how you send your prank. To avoid sounding too blunt or boring, try a kind of odd context. A good way to get things started is to create a way that the intended victim can tell someone else if they receive the message, or the tone is "deafening" (for those who are just trying to be genuine). 

Scary Text Prank Ideas You Can Send RIGHT NOW!

Now that you’re all set, copy and paste these creepy messages - crafted by our genius friends from the internet - and send them to your friends right now! 

  • The next time you wake up in the middle of the night for no reason, just know that there's an 80% chance someone was watching you.

  • Don’t struggle. He will not like it if you struggle.

  • Do you want death or a granny showing at your door with a creepy smile?
