But, of course, there will always be a few people who find the covers and the headlines terrifying.
So, creepies, what's your favorite WWN cover? Or which one do you think actually lived up and was creepy, whether by horrible photoshop and makeup, or by an actually terrifying possibility?
To help, here's the Google Books archive of WWN covers: http://books.google.com/books/serial/ISSN:0199574X?rview=1&lr=&sa=N&start=0

Somebody did a twist on one of Atari's arcade classics and created a Human Centipede Game.
No joke, it's for real (thanks, Fangoria).
I took a look at the game and don't know whether to laugh (it's damn funny) or cry (Centipede's my favorite arcade game and now I'll never be able to brain-bleach the HC image away).
But oh my, how stella_di_morte and I were ENTRANCED.
The following is our commentary while watching the movie here at VideoWeed. Again, it's a little... Nuts. You might be offended by some of our commentary, or grossed out by what happens in the movie. If you have a sensitive stomach or are easily offended, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.
That being said... On with the show.

...And that's "The Human Centipede", in a nutshell.
Normally I'd wait until FFAC for this, but I won't be able to next time and I really wanted to share it. I'm not incredibly afraid of dolls, but this made me wtf.
there is no denying it, the twilight saga has sucked the country in. it's phenomenally popular, but also extremely polarizing: there are superfans and superhaters alike. the book series by conservative mormon author stephenie meyer has spawned films, toys, clothing and even a line of graphic novels. relatedly, meyer has another line of novels, the first of which is called the host about "a young woman and an invading alien "soul," who are forced to work as one." (from wiki)
your opinions, creepies. i want them. about the quality of writing, the themes in the books, the films. do you think it has reinvigorated the public's interest in the undead, or have the books/films besmirched the creepy name of the unholy bloodsuckers? i, personally, have written papers for class about the books, the most recent (last term) being about the abusive nature of edward cullen and his/the novel's negative impact on the romantic psyche of young women in the u.s., which sounds a bit more impressive than it was, and, i think, gives you a pretty clear idea of where i stand on the series (plus i think she's an atrocious writer omgwtf).
A Swiss actor is carving out a new career as a sinister-looking clown - terrifying children's birthday parties.
Dominic Deville had the brainwave after watching his favourite horror movies and set up his Evil Clown service in Lucerne.
And he says his unlikely new venture is going so well that he's laughing all the way to the bank.
After he is hired to scare a birthday boy or girl, he first contacts his 'victims' to tell them they're being watched.
Then he taunts them with texts, phone calls and booby-trapped letters warning them that at sometime in their party he's going to smash a cake into their face.
"It's all in fun and if at any point the kids get scared or their parents are concerned we stop right there," he explained.
"But most kids absolutely love being scared senseless."
The news link contains a picture of the guy in his Evil Clown getup. I didn't post the pic because I know that a lot of us have clown phobia:
And really, all I can say about this whole thing is...:-O
But these were just too ridiculous.

I know a lot of people reference "PANCAKES!" from Cabin Fever, but Justin and Dr. Mambo made the movie for me (to this day, my dog's nickname is Professor). On the flip side, it's their fate that helps drive home what serious trouble the main protagonists are in. Poor Grim.
ontdcreepy , what's your favorite laugh out loud scene in a horror movie/show/book? It doesn't have to be intentionally funny (inb4 Trolls 2). Was there something you found hilarious that had you laughing while everyone else was screaming?
My daughter loves to scare the crap outta me. The other night, I came out of the bathroom and she was stood there facing the door, just staring. I jumped out of my skin, she laughed her head off. She's only eight, but she knows how to give me a fright lol.
When she was a lot younger, her nan and I were watching a scary movie in the dark, and all of a sudden my mum jumped about a foot in the air because she could see a small white face looking thru the crack in the door. My daughter had got out of bed, smeared her face with nappy (diaper) cream, and was staring thru the crack at the door, expressionless. And I've lost count of the number of times I've woken up to find her standing over me in the dark and staring down at me. She always thinks it's hysterical when I jump in fright, lol.
I think she got this from me, as I also love to scare people. My aunt is a taxi driver and often stops by my mum's when she's working at night. Mum will usually take her out a cup of coffee so she doesn't have to get out of the car (so she doesn't miss a job). This night, when she pulled into the drive, I was already hiding behind a wall in the front drive, and my mum was to bring my aunt her cup of coffee, and then pop back inside so my aunt was looking toward the house. I had a halloween skull mask, similar to this:
and after my mum had gone back inside, I crawled up to the car on the drivers side, put the mask on my hand and held it up at the (open) window. Then I waited. A few seconds later, my aunt realised their was something at the window, and when she saw what it was, she jumped, screamed......and threw her coffee cup at me. Luckily, it...and the scalding hot coffee....just missed me, lol. But God it was funny.
Another time, I hid crouched behind the front door and grabbed my mum's legs when she came home......she swore, and then hit me (this wasn't an agressive hit, it was a 'oh my frigging god, somethinng's got my legs!' hit).
My mum, however, is crap at pranking. We used to have a Saturday night horror movie fest, and then she'd stand at the door later on and watch me cross the street to my flat. But one night, she quietly followed me over, and hid behind the garden wall, planning to jump out at me when I opened the front door. It might have worked.....if she hadn't have been giggling so loudly.
Does anyone else just love scaring the shit out of their friends and family? And if so, has it ever backfired?
