The Backrooms is my favorite creepypasta. Legend has it that if you’re not careful and accidentally “noclip out of reality,” you can end up in the Backrooms, an endless series of yellow rooms with musty carpeting, neon lights and a constant buzz in the background. A few weeks ago, Kane Parsons – a.k.a. Kane Pixels – a 16-year-old filmmaker, produced a short film inspired by this mythical place. Instant classic.
“It’s not about being nostalgic for the 90s, nor is it about being nostalgic for the early-2010s. Instead, it’s about being nostalgic for being in the early-2010s being nostalgic for the 90s. It’s a lot to wrap your head around.”
