Halloween is upon us – and trick-or-treaters and revelers are preparing to get those costumes out for another night of fun.

Few remember though that there was a time before Batman, Superman, Star Wars characters, and Pokemon became the most popular costumes.

But some of the old vintage costumes once worn by those celebrating Halloween were downright frightening.

Old photographs of Halloween costumes so creepy it would put clowns to shame have emerged online.

This is what happens when you try and go in the ‘secret back gate’ to Area 51: Two mysterious men in camouflage pull out guns on off-road bikers

Armed men in camouflage gear came out of nowhere to stop a pair of adventure bikers who claimed they had discovered a secret back gate to Area 51 .

The terrified motorcyclists, who had just ridden past a sign which warned that ‘deadly force’ was authorized against trespassers, were forced to put their hands up when the two mystery men drew their guns.

They were riding on a dirt road in Nevada near the perimeter of the Air Force base where Area 51 is said to be located when they were stopped and told: ‘Get the f*** outta here’.

Many conspiracy theorists believe Area 51, a remote corner of Nevada, houses UFO technology.

But the claims have mainly been debunked, and the site has been revealed to be a historic test site for surveillance aircraft including the U2 and SR-71, and the US Air Force’s stealth bombers.

Police ask for help to find individuals who have been spooking Iowa town for weeks amid fears it is more than a sinister prank

A county in Iowa is being terrorized and terrified by a mysterious group of men dressed in black trench coats who are appearing alongside desolate roads in the middle of the night.

No one knows who these mysterious men in black are and more and more people are reporting sightings, and not just in Iowa but also now in Illinois and other nearby states.

The Muscatine County Sheriff’s Department in Iowa is now asking for help and any information as to who these men may be – and why they appearing out of nowhere and approaching moving cars.

We don’t have any new information about these people, but we have also seen several posts on Facebook about the same type of activity,’ wrote the Muscatine County Sherrif’s Department on Facebook Monday.

Hiker is terrified after he finds a bizarre ‘shrine’ to missing people in the middle of the woods along with an ‘altar’ made of twigs

ny4A hiker walking through a park in Long Island thought he discovered a shrine made by a serial killer after noticing dozens of notices of missing people around a makeshift shelter.

James Rankin posted footage of his bizarre discovery on his Facebook page.

Rankin saw the missing posters attached to trees while walking through Berkeley Jackson County Park in Huntington, New York.

He wrote on his Facebook page: ‘Just found the absolute most creepiest s***ever in the damn woods.

‘If I don’t post back with a video, send an armed search party.’

In the expletive-ridden video, Rankin approaches a clearing in the woods surrounded by trees.

In total, there were more than a dozen posters featuring both missing women and a handful of men.


Two days after posting the original video, Rankin updated his followers. He said: ‘The police have told me that the homeowner of the adjacent property is claiming this was set up for a “Halloween party,” [Halloween party? Totally tasteless, sick, AND heartless to hang up flyers of real missing people for a Halloween party.] and that it would be taken down after Halloween. They are not investigating further.

‘What I wanna know is, if these were “Halloween party” decorations, why have they been hanging there for weeks or months?

I had a choice between this and a monkey’s paw. I chose the monkey’s paw. They still made me take this book. I tried to burn it, but the match turned blue and went out. I threw it in a lake, and all the fish died. When I drove home, I found it in the back seat. I’m pretty sure that in seven days Kim is going to crawl out of this book and tell me about her new line of clutch bags. I have a very old, sickly neighbour; I’m going to let him read it and see if the curse transfers to him. Man, I hope so.

 

1.0 out of 5 stars   Intelligent and insightful art
By EA Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE on September 20, 2016
Format: Hardcover

We live in a society where women are held to contradictory standards for their bodies — they are expected to be blatantly sexual in order to court male attention, yet are despised for those same displays of sexuality. The line between owning one’s sexuality has been blurred with the cynical efforts to court male attention.

So the creator of this book is to be commended for creating such an intelligent, elaborate art piece as “Kim Kardashian Selfish,” which subtly yet scathingly lampoons the current pop-culture trends of shallow celebrity and social-media selfies. This collection of photographs of reality-TV blister Kim Kardashian is far more than meets the eye — it may seem vacuous, but it is definitely far more.

At first glance, these photographs seem to be the worst kind of vapid social media attention-garnering. But it soon becomes clear that these photos have been compiled so that the sheer emptiness of their subject has become apparent. What could be more empty and soulless than a constant stream of selfies, focused entirely upon the sexuality of a woman who has no function in society?

Without a word to guide the reader, the reader is slowly immersed into a world of complete lack of substance, forcing even the most undiscerning mind to realize that it is immersed in something that has no reason to exist. At the same time, the title “Selfish” gives us a hint about the intended purpose of this. Social media has allowed people to cultivate self-promotion to the point of obsession, focusing as much attention on themselves as possible.

It also has a possibly-unintended message about the nature of celebrity. Celebrity and social media are now intertwined irrevocably, so that any person with enough social media presence can become a celebrity, and any celebrity needs a social media presence to maintain their social significance. So this book shows us what celebrity now is, and all it requires: an empty succession of images using transparent, blatant sexuality to attract the attention of the lowest common-denominator. At the same time, it forces us to examine our attitudes towards the rich and famous — why do we pay more attention to pictures of the breasts, butt and lolling tongue of Kim Kardashian, when it would not be worthy of our interest in an ordinary woman? Indeed, it might be considered obnoxious and reprehensible.

So yes, this must be an elaborate satire, and a brilliantly subtle yet effective one.

Either that, or this book is just a vapid waste of paper, celebrating a vacuous celebrity and her cartoonish, grotesque, surgically-deformed body. Not to mention an unironic chronicling of her social media obsession, in a desperate attempt to fill the gaping black hole in her soul with transient attention for showing off her body and “sexy” faces, and pandering to “fans” that likely cannot spell their own names.

But that possibility is so depressing that I would want to go bury myself alive in the backyard, so I choose to believe the former scenario is the one that actually is true.

‘We are coming for you’: Sinister clown craze takes an ugly turn as vigilantes vow to hunt down the costumed creeps appearing across Australia

The clown craze putting Australia on high alert is intensifying as costumed creeps menace victims with machetes and vigilantes lash out at the pranksters.

Photographs of sinister clowns in all corners of the country have fuelled social media hysteria and prompted ‘clown hunting’ groups to take matters into their own hands.

Facebook posts claim a clown was hospitalised after being king-hit in Sydney – hours after after the ‘Clown Purge Sydney’ ominously warned ‘we are coming for you.’

Meanwhile footage has surfaced of clowns brandishing knives in Melbourne and another striking the bonnet of a car with a machete in Caboolture, north of Brisbane.

Authorities have scaled up their warnings, with NSW and Victoria Police taking aim at the US-born craze as it well and truly takes root in Australia.

A mysterious hooded figure has been spotted stalking a city’s streets for months – but nobody seems any the wiser about who it could be.
Dubbed ‘the Plague Doctor’, the eerie figure has been seen numerous times all over Chester, in Cheshire, usually at night.
Whoever it is doesn’t speak or make a sound, and simply wanders the streets silently, reports the Chronicle.
They have caused quite the stir in Chester, as many people have taken to social media to ask who might be behind the cloak.

Creepy Ronald McDonald

Mashable

ronald-mcdonald

If you came across this Ronald McDonald on the street, you would not be lovin’ it.

According to Redditor Emblematic_, this Ronald statue was looming over passersby in a McDonald’s with a Conference Centre in Bateman’s Bay in New South Wales, Australia.

The once cheerful giver of burgers and fries looks ominous and downright creepy with the dingy glow of the light seemingly coming up from the floor below him like he’s about to tell us a spooky campfire story. It’s almost like he’s summoning the dark clouds in the photo.

If you weren’t afraid of clowns before, perhaps now is the time to start.

But people on the Internet are coping with their fear in the only way they know how: with a hilarious Photoshop battle.
