Just in time for Halloween, NASA has released two new horror-movie-esque posters for exoplanet HD 189733 b and zombie star PSR B1257+12, which exist outside our Solar System, so that only sophisticated telescopes could reach them. That means that no-one can hear you scream out there.
In honor of the September 6th release of It: Chapter 2, we're bringing you these dank memes entitled, "Bill Hader Running From Pennywise" from behind the scenes of the movie. We just hope that Bill Hader's reaction to Bill Skarsgård was genuine!
Melbourne's Federation Square has been taken over by an 11-and-a-half metre (37.5-foot) baby named 'Ping Pong' made by Australian artist Felipe Reynolds:
The artist wanted the baby to "incorporate everybody in it," he said, "I wanted it to not be white, not be black, not be female, not be male - just be as inclusive as possible, so everybody can relate to it."
"Interaction is key to experiencing this unique inflatable. Through a camera rigged to The Atrium screen (operating between 7am – 10pm) members of the public will find themselves part of the installation. Upon interaction the frame will be flipped horizontally, so it looks like the baby is sitting on the ground and the visitors become the human mobile. On weekdays from 10am – 4pm, during the school holidays, play with the baby via 4 giant rattles (1.5 meters) based beneath the inflatable."
Well, I think we can all relate to it being creepy, if nothing else.
Anyone ever wanna' get shredded (literally) as you shred the gnar gnar pow pow?
On another note did this fan take it just a bit too far? I mean, 'SkiFree' is arguably the forefather of the infinite runner genre. Do you really tamper with that?
Anyways, for real, this game put a massive sap on nationwide, no, global productivity levels, in offices and schools; but it was totally worth it. In case you find yourself utterly flooded with a wave of nostalgia, revisit 'SkiFree' over here.
This might actually work if we can yank today's poorly aged Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) out his chain-smoking tent to star as Jigsaw in "The First Act."
Like the grown-up Culkin looks creepy enough without the proverbial sadistic clown face mask. Grantland writer, Jason Concepcion scrooged our last holiday season over when he drew back the curtains on a truth too dark and twisted for any 90's kid to stomach; Kevin McCallister, the blue-eyed, smirking, havoc-wreaking, kid-wonder with an overdeveloped appetite for lighting burglars on fire matures to become Jigsaw from the "Saw" series.
Perhaps most compelling of Concepcion's unfortunately well grounded theory, is his proposal that Jigsaw's inventions mirror what the young Kevin McCallister imagined as some sort of furnace monster in the original Home Alone. Just an arm's reach away from the furnace sits a clown mask that holds an uncanny resemblance to the Jigsaw mask. Uh, okay then.
Concepcion ended his original post after proposing this theory with a neck hair raising, "case closed."
Owners of a Rhode Island farmhouse said to be the inspiration behind the 2013 horror film The Conjuring are suing Warner Bros. because enthusiastic fans keep trespassing on their property.
Norma Sutcliffe and Gerald Helfrich say the film intentionally marketed the film as a true story and published the location of their home.
If you forgot about The Conjuring, this horrifying GIF should remind you.
The film follows real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren who visited the home back in the 70s'. It took in $137 million at the box office and was a major hit.
Court documents say the success of the film has caused a headache for the homeowners.
"The property was inundated by curiosity seekers and trespassers who, at all hours of night and day, come to and on to the property, approach and seek to enter the house, take photographs and videos, ignore the 'no trespassing' signs, fences, and barriers installed," court documents
Sutcliffe and Helfrich are seeking unspecified damages from Warner Bros., the director and numerous individual trespassers.
And surely you've thought, "Hey, I'd love to dress up as a large lumpy potato with a horrifying black-eyed stare and a shock of colorful hair just to make the whole thing zing its way into the night terrors of children everywhere."
Well, you are so in luck! Some costume that slightly resembles one of those troll dolls from the 1990s, but more accurately looks like the untold insanity of pure evil, is now available from Joker's Masquerade.
Here's how they describe the thing:
This cute pink Troll Doll costume is both a charming and unusual fancy dress idea.
Includes a brown bodysuit with attached shoe covers, gloves and a rounded padded tummy.
A matching brown headpiece with stuffed nose, ears and a large grinning mouth is also included.
The headpiece is topped with a tuft of bright pink hair which can be styled to your liking.
