Criterion's Scariest High-Brow Horror Films

It's hard to be truly frightened by movies full of slasher killings and cheap, jumpy scares, but the movies on Criterion's scariest list deliver the chills where true terror lives- the mind.

Having seen most of these movies I can attest to their terrifying nature, and fans of international films will enjoy them as much as true horror fans who don't mind taking a break from all the teen screams.

A Couple Of Cheap Costume Fails

Every year Halloween stores stock costume fails which seem impossible for anyone with a brain to have overlooked.

Example 1- round fuzzy mouse ears, like those worn by iconic cartoon characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse, labelled as cat ears. WTF? Has the person responsible for labeling each product never seen a cat before?

Example 2- a knight or Crusader costume labeled as a Samurai. Don't they have Google wherever these costumes are being made? Even the kid in the picture knows that the costume has been mis-labeled, and he's not happy about it at all!

The Right And Wrong Way To Dress Up Like Homer Simpson

Photo: Steve Rhodes/Flickr

Photo: Scutter/Flickr

Homer Simpson is a popular Halloween costume choice which is pretty easy to put together, but when you dress up like a Simpson it's the details that matter.

The first guy's doing it right- full face mask, good belly pad, proper outfit and yellow gloves to finish it all off.

The second guy is doing it all wrong- he's got only half a mask, and some terribly thin yellow paint slapped haphazardly all over his face. His belly pad is hanging out, his pants aren't the right color, and for that matter neither are his arms! D'oh!

Skeleton Maternity Shirts For Guys And Ghouls

Expectant mothers can now proudly display an artist's rendition of their unborn child's skeleton via their baby bump thanks to this skeleton maternity t-shirt by Etsy seller BabyTalk Designs.

There's even a version for the sympathetic husband, which shows all the beer bottles(?) he's swallowed while anxiously awaiting the birth of his child, and a kid's version with a tummy full of candy.

It's more fun than showing everyone the ultrasound pictures, even if it's not exactly anatomically correct.
