Horror is a universal language

Above is a worldwide assortment of the creepiest posters we could find in honor of Halloween. Interestingly, Halloween is getting more popular internationally all the time. Where we live it was virtually ignored as recently as ten years ago, but nowadays it’s not a rarity to see both kids and adults dressed in costumes for the occasion. Trick-or-treating hasn’t quite taken hold, just because the layout of the communities don’t really allow for it, but adopting new personas or playing characters is something everyone seems to love, no matter where they live. Everyone likes a good scare, too, and these films do the job nicely. They are Halloween, Halloween again, Rosemary’s Baby, Zombie Holocaust, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Squirm, Return of the Living Dead 2, The Shuttered Room, Evil Dead 2, Hellraiser, Suspiria, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Vampire Women, The Omen, The Thing, The Shining, Backwoods, Fright Night, and Seuseung-ui eunhye. Happy trick-or-treating.

80s pop karma chameleon shows his worst side.

Androgynous pop music idol George O’Dowd aka Boy George was convicted today in London for false imprisonment of a Norweigian male escort named Auden Carlsen. O’Dowd admitted handcuffing Carlsen, but claimed it was because the escort had hacked into a laptop and stolen sensitive photographs.

Carlsen told a different story—he claimed that after participating in an erotic photo shoot, he briefly performed oral sex on O’Dowd, but refused to go further because he didn’t find the former pop star physically attractive. O’Dowd then became angry and bound Carlsen. Somehow, the escort extricated himself and fled into the street wearing only his underwear, but not before O’Dowd went fully medieval and beat him with a chain.

O’Dowd’s lawyers, in a novel defense, claimed their client was simply too fat to overpower someone as physically fit as the 29-year old escort. They claimed Carlson consented to being restrained while O’Dowd satisfied himself that no photos were missing. But a jury didn’t buy it. They decided O’Dowd really did want to hurt the escort. He’ll be sentenced in January.

Barbie gets an extreme makeover.

We love this. Norwegian art student Are Sundnes converted a Barbie doll into a zombie masterpiece and posted the results to his website. In the long history of Barbie makeovers this has to be the best. The only possible improvement would be if she came with Ken’s severed, bloody head.
