Roundup of Unusual Size: Spooky Edition

The blog feeds are slow tonight, so Ben, this one’s for you.

WARNING: These links (and especially the images at the end) are pretty much not for the faint of heart. I tried weeding out the gore, but some of it is still pretty tough to look at. Hey, at least I didn’t throw Lotus Boob at you.

(Don’t Google that.)

Body Horror

Parasitic twins.

Teratomas! Some of them have brains.

And this one is my favorite: Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva, where your entire body –cartilage, muscle, organs, everything– turns into solid bone.

Delusional parasitosis, including Morgellon’s, where you believe foreign bodies (like insects) are crawling under your skin.

Not abnormal by any means, but freaky all the same: sleep paralysis.

Locations

Aokigahara, the Japanese suicide forest.

The Dyatlov Pass incident.

Street light interference–which happened to me constantly when I lived out in the sticks, ugh.

Nature is EVIL

Human botflies! Have a couple videos too.

Naegleria fowleri! Otherwise known as the amoeba that eats human brains.

Governments are Evil-er

Project MK-ULTRA. See also: The Killing Room.

“Why are chains growing out of this man’s skin?”

Polybius. Which is probably not the same as this 2007 PC game (warning: may be dangerous for people suffering from epilepsy).

“Found Footage”

Aka, the only horror genre that’s worth bothering with these days.

Marble Hornets: zero budget ongoing web series about Slender Man, an internet-borne folk tale (you can see artist renditions of him in the gallery after the jump).

Poughkeepsie Tapes. Just… Poughkeepsie Tapes.

Less found footage, more faux documentary with body horror/black-as-black-gets hospital humor, but Lars von Trier’s The Kingdom.

Images

I’ve got a gallery. Hit the jump. Hit iiiiiit.
