Halloween might be over, but that doesn’t mean we have to turn our backs on all the horrifying content that lives online.

A recent video posted to the YouTube channel “Scary Exotics” depicts a voracious centipede slowly devour a cockroach—and it’s horrific.

This centipede feasts on its prey by ripping into the innocent cockroach while it is still living. The whole video in itself is terrifying, but watching the cockroach’s head move after it has been decapitated is something straight out of a nightmare.


To make matters worse, a Reddit user points out the roach is glued to the rock, making it defenseless against the hungry centipede. By the end of the clip, there is nothing left of the poor cockroach but its glued limbs.

Disgusted but want to see more? Of course you do. The Scary Exotics YouTube channel is filled with other horrifying videos like an anaconda devouring a mouse and group of piranhas ganging up on a rat. 

It’s a cruel, cruel world out there.
