Becoming Vecna

Becoming Vecna

It’s common knowledge that Vecna is the Big Bad on Stranger Things 4. But if you haven’t watched it yet, don’t click play, or you’ll spoil an important plot point. But if you already know who Vecna is, watch and enjoy this actor’s transformation from human into beast, with occasional phone calls and sips of Starbucks along the way.

Realistic LEGO Minifigure

Realistic LEGO Minifigure

Ever wonder what a LEGO Minifigure might look like if it was a living, organic creature? Well, wonder no longer. Adam from North of the Border sculpted this character with a dad bod, clamp hands, a flattened scalp and jawline, beady black eyeballs, and the look of perpetual ennui.

Ghost Dogs

Ghost Dogs

After being adopted from a shelter, an innocent rescue dog discovers that its new home is haunted by the ghosts of the family’s prior pets. Joe Cappa’s weird and creepy animated short film has moments of humor but is definitely more horror than comedy. We also love the tagline “Are You Afraid of the Bark?”

The Othertubbies

The Othertubbies

(Gore) Forget everything you know about the Teletubbies. Wizardhead turned these kid-friendly characters into nightmare fuel. Using AI tech, the Wiz remodeled Dipsy, Tinky-Winky, Laa-Laa, and Po into the kind of gruesome monsters you’d blast playing DOOM. They also worked their magic on You Can’t Do That on Television.

The Terrifying Mr. Potato Head

The Terrifying Mr. Potato Head

Since the 1960s, Mr. Potato Head toys have come with a fake potato body made of plastic. But when they first came out in the 1950s, they were strictly bring-your-own tuber. Vintage TV Commercials dug up this 1952 Hasbro promo that shows just how creepy and weird looking the original Potato Heads could be.

Attack of the Beach Titan

Attack of the Beach Titan

This video starts out like many other TikTok and Instagram clips – a beautiful, bikini-clad girl on a beach snapping selfies. But it soon turns to terror as model and singer Tara Coai places a 360º camera in her mouth, capturing a distorted perspective that makes her look like a monster straight out of Attack on Titan. More horror here.

After entertaining us with her covers of the DuckTales and Knight Rider themes, cellist Samara Ginsberg is back with something a bit more ominous. Her 8-part take on Bernard Herrmann’s Prelude from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho will definitely have you looking over your shoulder the next time you take a shower.

Expressive Humanoid Robot

Expressive Humanoid Robot

Engineered Arts shows off their Ameca robot, an advanced humanoid that can produce convincing facial expressions and gestures.

Sculpting Pennywise

Artist Dr. Garuda shows off another amazing sculpt, this time taking on the creepiest of clowns. The miniature likeness of Pennywise from Stephen King’s IT would definitely give us nightmares standing there staring at us from our bookshelf.

An Unsettling Fractal Pattern

An Unsettling Fractal Pattern

Fractal art can be beautiful, hypnotic, and colorful. But with the proper arrangement of pixels, these mathematical patterns can also be dark and downright unsettling. Motion designer Chris Lavelle’s short fractal animation Creation 1 is especially disturbing, especially for those who suffer from trypophobia.

Disney’s Frozen Horror Coloring Book

Disney’s Frozen Horror Coloring Book

We were never ones to color inside of the lines, so we can appreciate illustrator Jordan Persegati’s out-of-the-box reinterpretation of Disney’s Frozen Ultimate Colouring Book, which he transformed into a demonic work of horror, complete with trypophobia triggers.

Resident Evil Village with Barney

Resident Evil Village with Barney

To add to the replay value of Capcom’s Resident Evil Village demo, MarcosRC created a mod for the PC version that replaces the game’s creepy monsters with something even more terrifying: Barney the purple dinosaur. We can almost hear the pained echoes of “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family” in the distance.

Deftones: Ceremony

Deftones: Ceremony

Deftones enlisted The Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell to bring to life this unnerving music video. Actress Cleopatra Coleman stars as a woman who must pass a series of tests in order to gain access to an extremely exclusive club. We’re just not sure why anyone would want to go in there.

Eyecam Eyeball Webcam

Creepy “Realistic” Robot Gazes

Creepy “Realistic” Robot Gazes

We’ve seen some realistic animatronics in the past, but scientists continue to work on ways to make robots even more lifelike. Engineers from Disney Research have been working on a robot with realistic facial movements that can react to humans it monitors using a 3D camera. Too bad it’s terrifying with the skin off.

Minor Key Africa

Minor Key Africa

We’ve all heard a billion and one covers of Toto’s Africa by now. Though we have to hand it to Kestrel Tapes for his unique spin on the hit song. Played in a minor key, and accompanied by salad tongs, the track takes on a creepy new vibe that sounds like it came from a horror movie soundtrack.
