Halloween Special!

Hello fellow viewers, and Happy Halloween! I’ve decided to do something very special for the holiday. This post will be about Creepypastas. Creepypastas are internet horror stories that are passed around and occasionally read by people on Youtube. They cover a variety of topics, ranging from urban legends, to psychological horror. I have been listening to them for a very long time, and I’ve decided to share some of my favorites. Now, use the light of your computers as the campfire, and let’s begin the spooky tales!

  • NES Godzilla Creepypasta by Cosbydaf  Genre: Haunted Game 

Haunted video games are a big part of the Creepypasta community, and this is probably the best story. It’s about a boy named Zachary who is given the old NES game as a present. What starts as a normal, enjoyable gaming experience turns very wrong. Zach goes on a journey through corrupted data, bizarre levels, and one of the scariest video game antagonists ever made. It has many crazy twists and turns that will leave you shocked and amazed. I highly recommend this story to everyone, and I post a link of it below. Goji73 does an impeccable job narrating this story, and even adds his own music to enhance the atmosphere. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this story in the comments’ section below.

  

 

 

  • Borrasca by C.K. Walker Genre: Psychological/Violent/Emotional Horror

The Borrasca is an incredibly intense journey of betrayal, sex, horror, controversy, violence, and despair. It has many adult themes, and is strongly intended for mature audiences only. The story is about a boy named Sam who moves to Drisking, Missouri from St. Louis. Sam’s father, a cop, becomes the sheriff of the town, and Sam meets his two best friends. They start having a lot of fun exploring town, until Sam’s friends Kyle, and Kimber, take him to a place called the Triple Tree. This giant treehouse holds a terrible secret about Skinnedmen and a place called the Borrasca. There’s also a extremely disturbing mechanical noise that appears at random during the day. Shit finally hits the fan when Sam’s sister, Whitney goes missing. What starts as a simple missing person case, transforms into something much worse. Walker pulls no punches, and some parts of the story are very hard to read. The writing and setting of the story is absolutely perfect, and I would love to see this tale transformed into a movie. Posted below, is a link to Mr. CreepyPasta’s narration of the story. He’s one of the most popular “Creepytubers”, and his work is always admirable. I highly recommend this story, but be warned, it’s quite unnerving.

  • The Showers by Dylan Sindelar Genre: Paranormal

The Showers is an awesome story with a very surprising ending. It’s about a high school student named Jack, and his Social Studies teacher, Mr. Mays. Jack looks up to this teacher, and he’s very popular with the students. One Halloween day, Mr. Mays tells his class a horror story. It ends up being so well done, and so compelling, that everyone loved it. Jack begins to tell the story to other people, and then finally meets his teacher at a bar. What goes on from there is up to you to find out, however, I will say that its one awesome adventure. Mr. CreepyPasta narrates this awesome story in the link below.

More Creepy Art Pieces (October Special)

Hello fellow horror fans! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more scary paintings. Now, grab a costume, and let’s scare up some fun!

  • Time to bring back a scary classic! The Face of War by Salvador Dali Oil on canvas 1940

This is one piece that will send shivers down your spine! It’s a brilliantly macabre work by “Spanish Surrealist”, Salvador Dali. It depicts a rotten head with no eyes and a horrifying expression. There’re mirror images of the skull in the head’s eyeholes. The atmosphere of the work is extremely unsettling, and puts the viewers on edge. Supposedly, the painting is a representation of Dali’s premonitions of war, as this was made just as WW2 started. It definitely conveys its message well, and our morbid curiosity compels us to keep looking.

  • Insane Woman by Theodore Gericault 1822 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly grotesque work by “French Lithographer”, Gericault. The woman of the work is very unsettling, and quite realistic. The woman’s face is wrinkled and decrepit. Her eyes, which are probably the most disturbing aspect of the piece, are bloodshot and crossed. She also has a very deranged smile. I love the artist’s close attention to detail, and I really enjoy the uniqueness of the piece.

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more messed up characters. Now, grab your favorite Graphic Novel, and let’s begin!

  • Black Hand Real Name: William Hand Status: Misanthrope First appeared: Green Lantern#29 (June 1, 1964 DC Comics) Powers/Abilities: Using the black power ring, William can reanimate the dead, and steal energy by killing his victims and eviscerating their hearts

William was raised in a mortuary, and became disturbingly fascinated with the dead bodies. His interest in the dead became a major problem with his family. He soon was being stalked by the Red Lantern known as Atrocitus. This eventually lead Hand to insanity, and he brutally murdered his family before taking his own life. Instead of dying, he became reanimated as a Black Lantern. He became a major thorn in Hal Jordan’s side, and even killed his father in cold blood. After being reborn for this fourth time, he finally meets his permanent end at the hands of the Source Wall.

  • Johnny Sorrow Real Name: N/A Status: Super Villain First Appeared: Secret Origins of Super Villains #1 (December 1, 1999 DC Comics) Powers/Abilities: His own face kills anyone who looks at it (he isn’t immune to this), teleportation, limited intangibility, mask reformation, communication through dimensions, magic manipulation, levitation

Johnny Sorrow was originally a silent movie actor who wanted to move to talkies. He stole a special Subspace Prototype, which made his body intangible. He used this to commit crimes. He was easily caught by the “Dream Lord”, Sand. He transported Sorrow into a horrific dimension known as the Subtile Realms. He then met the dastardly King of Tears, who made him his servant. Upon returning to Earth, Sorrow found out that his face had been horribly disfigured. The sight of his visage was so disturbing, that whoever looked at it would die of shock. He continues his life of crime, and is sent back to the Subtile Realms after the King of Tears dies.

 

 

  • Emplate Real Name: Marius St. Croix Status: Terrorist First Appeared: Generation X #1 (November 1994 Marvel Comics) Unusual Features: Looks like a dry emaciated corpse with purple artery-like veins running down his body. He also has blood red pupils and gray skin. Powers/Abilities: Feeds on the bone marrow of mutants to remain on this physical plane (this cancels out their powers and gives them their abilities), extreme durability, extraordinary tracking abilities, can transform others into abominations like himself, limited invisibility

Marius was born into a very rich family, and lived quite a lavish childhood. This all changed, however, when he turned into a teenager. He was overwhelmed with hunger, and accidentally killed his mother. He was then exiled from his family, and moved towards the study of dark magic. He was eventually found by his sisters, and banished into a different dimension. Inside the dimension, Emplate learns about his powers and his major weakness. He must live aided by a giant purple respirator. If he doesn’t continue to consume mutant’s bone marrow, he will be pulled into a dimension of unspeakable torture. (Geez, what a life!)

Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more of Carlson’s masterpieces. Now, let’s prepare to have our minds blown!

  • Alone and Unafraid by Larry Carlson 

This is one jaw-dropping epic by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a huge scroll with many different designs. The bottom depicts a kneeling baby on top of a strange spaceship. He’s surrounded by a forest of multicolored trees and a wispy background. As we journey up the painting, we see an orange-robed figure with an abnormally large head. Farther up the work is a grotesque mass of bodies with a rainbow bear in the center of  it. The next part is an outdoor scene with a vicious beast, and snakes with Magritte’s pipes as their heads. I absolutely adore this nod to the famous Belgian Surrealist. After that, we are flung into space and surrounded by planets and the veins of a human skeleton. Ascending up the piece, we are met with a beautiful woman and a jack o’ lantern with a feathered headdress. We then see a man with spiky hair and a VR headset. Then next, and probably strangest part of the work is a disturbing balloon-like creature surrounded by purple gating guns. Climbing even higher, we see many busty women and another orange-robed creature with a rainbow head and a black dolphin on its shoulder. The last part of the painting depicts many jockeys riding horses, a fuchsia bubbled sky, English homes, a psychedelic, tentacled background, and an ultra strange woman-beast hybrid with multiple faces and two hands clutching lightning bolts. I love the amazing detail of this piece, and I hope that you guys will enjoy it as much as I do.

  • The Persistence of Metamorphosis  by Larry Carlson 2015

This is a wild and wacky work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s another outer space piece with a mythical vibe. The main part of the painting is the female figure. She has an incredibly stretched out eyes, which are repeated in four lines like lasers. She also has two speakers on each side of her ears. Her head houses two lion statues, Ganesha, and an Indian palace. The palace has a rainbow emanating out of it, which are surrounded by two contortionist-spider crab hybrids. I love the ridiculousness of the work, and Carlson’s unique brand of genius. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.
