"If you yourself can not release, then it will come to take a piece."

-- The Look-See's mantra

The Look-See is the titular antagonist of the Crypt TV series of the same name. He is an entity that comes for those who are unable to move on from their grief. Behind The Birch, he is one of the most well-known monsters on the Crypt TV channel.

He is portrayed by Sean Brison.


The Look-See appears as a tall, well-built man in a blue blazer, white dress shirt, and black pants and dress shoes. His face is covered in large red gashes and is completely devoid of any facial features, save for a wide smiling mouth with corroded black gums and sharp yellow teeth. He has long, spindly fingers with black claw-like fingernails, and he always wears a pair of tattered red fingerless gloves.


The Look-See's primary prey is individuals who are unable to move on from grief, be it from the death of a family member or divorcing a spouse. He first leaves his victims a note signifying that he is coming for them, and if they are unable to release from their grief in the very short window of time before he comes for them, he will murder them and take a body part symbolic of the part of their past they can not let go of, an example being Jenni's left ring finger as that is the one she wore her wedding ring on.

However, The Mistress's Mind implies that The Look-See does not limit his victims to those who can not let go of grief; Marlene would not let go of her obsession of wooing Daniel away from his wife. Another example is the case of Johnny Wells, a football prodigy who refused to accept that the fact that he could no longer play football after sustaining a debilitating injury.

Something that angers The Look-See (or irritates him at the very least) is when he is faced with a person who harbors no guilt or remorse in their hearts.

"FOOTBALL FATALITY" ft. Cam Johnson Edit

Cam Johnson investigates the death of Johnny Wells, a student at Northeast University in 2016. Johnny was a football prodigy and was well on his way to becoming a professional after he graduated. Unfortunately, on October 22nd, Johnny was seriously injured during a game -- a powerful tackle had dealt severe damage to his kidneys, and doctors told him he would be too dangerous for him to play football. Johnny ignored the doctors and continued trying to play, even wearing his old uniform around campus and trying to attend football practices. When the coach banned him from practices, Johnny stayed in his dorm room and refused to leave for classes, which put him on academic probation. Johnny's roommate reported that he only ever saw Johnny in his bedroom "watching his highlight reels from past games, on repeat". Before his death, Johnny told his friends that he believed someone was taunting him -- he would open his notebooks and find notes slipped inside that read "If you yourself can not release, then it will come to take a piece". On December 11th, 2016, Johnny was found mutilated in his dorm room by his roommate; his arms were twisted completely behind his back, his body had been bent in half at a 90-degree angle, and he was disemboweled. Police reviewal of the corpse confirmed that "no apparent tools were used in (the) dismemberment".

"SPLIT PERSONALITY" ft. Cam Johnson Edit

Cam Johnson investigates the case of Billy Davis, who was found dead in an Atlantic City bathroom in 2017. Billy was once a beloved family man living in Pennsylvania, but on an anniversary trip with his wife, Annabel, to Atlantic City in 2016, Billy won a $20,000 jackpot. He became hooked on the rush of winning the jackpot, and over the next several months made over $10,000 by placing bets on sports. Unfortunately his stupor was not to last, as Billy lost everything in a game of roulette during another trip to Atlantic City with his friends. Billy became obsessed with the idea of winning more money, and his wife noted in a blog post that he had "become two different people" as he tried to keep his new gambling addiction a secret. Billy was later fired from his accounting job after he was caught soliciting bets on his computer. He then began driving three hours from his house in Pennsylvania to Atlantic City, disappearing for days at a time. On April 24th, 2017, two weeks after Billy disappeared to Atlantic City, the police were called to a casino where they found that Billy had been split down the middle in the casino bathroom. Inside of Billy's pockets were dozens of crumpled-up notes reading "If you yourself can not release, then it will come to take a piece". Annabel was first suspected of writing the notes, but was discarded as a suspect when her handwriting didn't match. Cam Johnson connects Billy's death to those of John Wells and , inferring that there is something more sinsister behind these murders.

  • LOOK-SEE vs. MORDEO Creepypasta feat. MrBlackpasta
    • Stephen: One of his legs was ripped off and used to impale his torso. One of his wife's feet was crammed down his throat, and he was disemboweled. This could Stephen literally putting a foot in his mouth as he had persuaded the narrator and Karen to drive home while they were both above the legal alcohol limit.
    • Alison: The same method as her husband, but with one of Stephen's feet crammed down her throat. This is likely because she also pressured the narrator to drive home drunk.

    • Candice North: Scalped, symbolic of how she always brushed her deceased daughter's hair before bed.

  • Jonathon "Johnny" Wells: Johnny's arms were twisted all the way behind his back and there were bites on his shoulders. Body was bent at a 90-degree angle, and he was disemboweled.
