Traumatize Kids from an Early Age with This Freddy Krueger Jack-in-the-Box

The most reviled toy in the entire toy box at daycare way back in the day was the Jack-in-the-Box. It played creepy music, and you never knew when that clown bastard would pop out. If you have kids and want to scare the crap out of them in a way that a standard Jack-in-the-Box can’t, this is the toy for you.

This is Mezco Toyz’ Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger Burst Box. The metal box has images of that knife-fingered nut Freddy on the outside. Spin the green handle and ol’ Fred will pop out with that snazzy red and green sweater, hat, and mincemeat face.

You can pre-order one now for $42.99 at Entertainment Earth with shipping starting in November 2019.

Bob Ross Video Processed via DeepDream: Trippy Little Trees

Part of living in Colorado means dealing with potheads, and the fact that very nearly every corner of some cities has a dispensary. I think if you need to keep stoners clear from hanging out around your home or business, all you need do is play them this insane video, and they’ll think they’re having one bad trip.

What you’re about to watch is video of artist Bob Ross processed through the nightmare factory that is the DeepDream AI.  The machine learning algorithm turns Ross and his canvas into a trippy series of seals, dogs, and cats, and Bob’s afro looks like it has found a way into the Matrix. This may well haunt your nightmares; if the visuals aren’t enough, the creepy vocal processing will make your skin crawl.

I mean WTF is this, and why does my man Bob look like he has the face of one of those weird penguin creatures from the The Last Jedi where Luke milks a teat for green milk?

The unfiltered joy of Christine McConnell’s ‘Mortal Kombat’ cake

Rose is an obese, Frankenstein raccoon with a pink bow on top of her ratty head and a bent fork where her left hand should be. She's blindly self-possessed, spending her days devouring sweets and torturing men -- and often vice versa. She's died at l...

Human Skin High Heels Are the Creepiest Footwear Ever

Before we get into the topic at hand, let me ask you guys something. What the hell is wrong with y’all? Why do you need to wear these shoes that look like they’re made of human skin? Are they for serial killers? All I know is that they are super creepy and they make it look like you have demon feet. You really want demon feet?

These things are actually thigh high so that when you wear them they hopefully look like it is your real skin. I’m not surprised at all that they are made by a company known as “Fecal Matter.” The artists say they’re designed to make a statement about social media ideals and body modification.

Yes, they're walkable

These would be great for Halloween if you want to dress up as a demon I guess. Wear them when it isn’t Halloween and you are going to get some very weird looks. Some might even run away.

The Skin Heel

They aren’t available yet, but when they are they’ll be sold for the rather outlandish price of $10,000 – making them only accessible to wealthy freaks. They are planning on making a more affordable version for those who can’t afford the high price tag.

Every Mickey Mouse Combined Is Serious Nightmare Fuel

Do you love Mickey Mouse? I mean really love him? You may not love him so much after seeing this. Matthew Plummer Fernandez’s Every Mickey is a terrifying Disney mutation. This thing is a 19″ tall 3D printed object consisting of “Every model of Mickey Mouse found online, compiled as one.”

That doesn’t sound so bad but look at the picture. Imagine every Mickey Mouse from every dimension of the multiverse, all mashed together in the same time and space. All crying out in terror and pain. With no sound. Yeah, that’s what we have here. A cartoon mouse being tormented for all eternity. Strike that. Not “a” cartoon mouse. All of them.

He looks like one of those Hindu gods with many arms, which I guess is appropriate since so many people worship at Disney’s alter. So here you go Disney fans. Here’s your new God. Pretty horrific if you ask me. I wouldn’t have this thing on my desk. That said, It would be cool if Matthew shared the STL file in case you’re okay with this hideous thing gesturing at you every day.

Now that I’ve seen this monstrosity, I really want to see if someone can animate this mess into a coherent character. Can it even walk or do anything as it’s thousands of parts move independently? Someone get on that so we can see.

This Ladder-Climbing Snake Robot is Creepy as Hell

How about a game of chutes and ladders? Uh, I mean snakes and ladders. Look, snakes are nature’s creepiest creation and robots are man’s creepiest creation. So naturally, scientists had to combine them both for maximum terror. While we’re at it, let’s make these robotic creepy crawlies climb ladders, cause you know, we wouldn’t want humans getting away.

Seriously though, a snake is a great design for robotics. They can slither in and out of small spaces to look for damage in structures or rescue someone trapped under rubble, plus they can handle all kinds of terrain. But just because we can do it, doesn’t mean we should. Because now researchers have taught robot snakes to climb ladders. There goes your second story escape plan.

Researchers from the Kyoto University and University of Electro-Communications have developed a robot snake that can bend and twist its segmented body, allowing it to slowly wrap itself around each rung as it climbs a ladder.

Good job researchers. Now, where are we going to go to escape robot snakes? I built a treehouse specifically to escape them and I just know that when I go up there next, now I’m going to find a bunch of robot snakes up there reading dirty mags, which is my job.

Real Life Homer Simpson: The D’oh of Your Nightmares

Last summer, artist Miguel Vasquez created some images that show what Spongebob and Patrick would look like in real life. The renderings were the stuff of nightmares. Now, Vasquez is back with a rendering of what Homer Simpson would look like if you ran into him on the street.

Homie is terrifying to look at with his bug eyes and giant mouth. He looks like he should come out of the sink in the next Stephen King horror flick to choke you while screaming “YOU LITTLE!”. Creepy as real Homer may be, the illustrations are fantastic, and this dude has some serious talent.

And no matter how disturbing this is, Homer certainly is easier on the eyes than real-life Patrick Star was. I’m fairly sure I saw Patrick in the cages under the cabin in The Cabin in the Woods.

Artist Creates Disturbing Superhero Figures Out of Insect and Crab Shells

Some people play with action figures. Other people play with bugs. Ew! This guy plays with both. Double ew! This student in Osaka, Japan known as @ride_hero on Twitter has a very interesting hobby. He makes action figures out of insect and crab shells.

We know this because he posted several photos of his disturbing creations. They may be disturbing, but I have to admit, they are also very cool and he is very talented. It begs the question, why does he have so many insect and crab shells laying around? And once you ask that, it becomes even creepier. He may be an insect serial killer. We just don’t know. Don’t want to know.

These truly are heroes in a half shell. One of his favorite shells appears to be that of the cicada, which make me feel all icky and gross. I have to be honest, there’s no way I could touch these, never mind putting them on my shelf.

Maybe he’ll make a Spawn out of prawn one day. I think that should be his next creepy masterpiece. This guy does really great work. Just keep them away from me is all I’m saying.

This Lifelike Animatronic Head Doesn’t Think This Looks Like Anything

I’m a huge fan of Westworld, as I’m sure many of you are. The thought of androids who don’t even know they aren’t real and look just like us is a bit unnerving. It looks like the folks at Garner Holt Productions have created a creepy head almost worthy of being a Host in our favorite theme park of debauchery.

Sadly, the head isn’t a hot rancher’s daughter, rather it’s an old wrinkly dude that looks like he might shoot you for a shot of whiskey. It’s hailed as the most advanced humanoid robotic head ever created. It is “theme park quality” and it looks as if it would be right at home at Disneyland. That only makes sense, because Garner Holt has created some of the animatronics in use at Disney’s theme parks before.

The video above shows the sleepy looking robot head in action. It almost looks like a human, and if it were just a tiny bit more fluid in its movements, we might need to be sure Delos Quality Assurance was on the job.

Guy Makes Hand from Fried Meat: Edible Facepalm

Oh Internet, you always know how to raise the creep-meter to 11. Watch in awe and disgust as this guys create a hand out of fried meat, then fills it with rice. For some reason. Why? Why not? Watching this video feels like an origin story for the worst superhero ever. A guy named Fried Meat and Rice Hand who goes around slapping people.

Its creator, Kiwami Japan first makes some kind of mechanical contraption, then he cuts some meat and stuffs it into a glove. Then he shapes it to look like a real hand. Next, he cuts the hand free of the glove and adds some soy sauce, salt and pepper. Then he adds an egg on top, dips it in flour and fries it up in the pan before adding the fried rice topper.

At this point you’ll ask out loud why you are still watching. I have no idea. I’m guessing if you made this, you’d eat the fingers first. This has got to be one of the weirdest and creepiest cooking videos I’ve ever seen. Seriously, why would you do this? So many questions. Zero answers.
