Being a horror junkie, I have come across all kinds of terrifying photos and videos.
Though many of them have certainly creeped me out, most haven’t actually gotten under my skin and haunted my dreams. That’s because they weren’t even half as unsettling as this freaky performance.
In his work entitled, “Transfiguration,” French artist Olivier de Sagazan sculpts his face into monstrous statues that look like they came straight out of the “Silent Hill” games. When you see it for yourself, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that I definitely wasn’t expecting to come away this disturbed.
The sounds make it so much worse.
Well, I’ll be lucky if I get any sleep after seeing that. Anyone have a night-light I can borrow?
I’m sure we’re all aware of the dangerous effects that drugs can have on our brains.
Paranoia, delusions, and the inability to think rationally are only a few, but apparently being immune to feeling excruciating pain is one of them as well.
When a man in Brazil got high on crack cocaine recently, his altered state of mind made him think that it was a good idea to play in traffic. However, running in front of cars wasn’t the craziest thing he decided to do. You really have to see this to believe it.
Reborn doll shows are among the strangest things I’ve ever seen.
I’ve only gotten as close as watching videos of them, but even that is more than enough for me. It goes without saying that the dolls themselves are creepy, but there’s something incredibly unsettling about how the attendees refer to them as if they are real-life babies. You have to wonder if those people are a little crazy and actually believe it.
But crazy doesn’t even begin to cover what happened at this doll show. I thought these events couldn’t get more disturbing, but I was very, very wrong.
Get ready to witness some seriously strange behavior, folks. It’s not going to be pretty.
The way they touch it and talk to it is so creepy.
Not only is that really unnecessary, but now you’ve turned me off of dolls altogether. Sorry, future child — none for you. We just can’t risk this happening.
9. The H-bouya toy is designed to plug into your USB port, and its eyes turn red and blink every time the “h” button is pressed on your keyboard. The disturbing part about this is that the “h” in the name may also mean “erotic” in Japanese.
The video below is an auditory illusion known as the ‘Shepard tone’. Roger Shepard was a cognitive scientist who is said to be the “father of research on spatial relations”, and this trick is named after him because essentially what happens is a series of sine separated by an octave. That sounds really complicated, but I promise it really isn’t. Just give this video a play and then play it again and see what happens.
Did you notice that when you play it a second time it sounded like the scale got higher?
It might have sounded like it… but nope! The sequence didn’t change, just your perception of it. This occurs because the same note is playing at two octaves, but as the higher starting note descends it gets quieter and by the end of the clip it is virtually inaudible. Meanwhile, the lower octave note is gradually getting louder as it ascends and it becomes the loudest note you hear by the end of the clip. When those two sounds combine in sequence and you play it again it gives the illusion that it is continually ascending. Yada, yada, it’s essentially the equivalent of an audio barbershop pole.
If you liked that, check out some of these guided audio illusions from AsapScience. Totally worth it if you have headphones and some time on your hands.
What a good listener you are! Give this a share on Facebook and let people hear what’s up!
Waterspouts are an interesting meteorological phenomenon. They’re essentially small-scale tornadoes that form over the ocean. They get their name by sucking up water and creating spout-like formations. While they’re nowhere near as dangerous or destructive as standard tornadoes, it’s still a good idea to steer clear of them.
What you absolutely should not do is head right into the middle of a waterspout. That goes double if you happen to be driving a small boat…like the gentleman of questionable sanity in this video.
Let’s face it. Creative people can be real weirdos sometimes (and that’s what makes them so awesome). Typically, I try not to question other people’s creativity, but it’s impossible to look at these pictures and not say “Why?” Perhaps that’s the point of the “chinface,” which is exactly what it sounds like. This is the kind of art that seems to only exist to weird people out.
Well, mission accomplished. Take a look at some of the stranger chin faces! Good luck sleeping tonight. You’ll need it.
Oh great, I’ll never sleep again.
The braces just make it worse.
Get out of my dreams.
I’m having a hard time understanding what he is doing with his cheeks.
