Netherworld is one of the largest and most popular haunted attractions in the U.S., and what sets them apart from the rest is the unique storyline/theme they come up with each year. This year it was all about bugs and banshees, but the promise of a new original theme keeps thrill seekers coming back to the Atlanta, Georgia based attraction every year.
Man, looking through these old Halloween party snapshots is like hopping in a time machine and doing the Monster Mash with a bunch of hep cats and kitties who really know how to get their kicks while all dressed up. Enjoy this trip down Halloween memory lane!
Cookie Monster got tired of waiting for cookies to mysteriously appear on his table, so he hit the nearest grocery store and scored enough to tide him over for a few hours.
Chips Ahoy wouldn't have been my first choice but Cookie was probably going for quantity and not quality...
Weber Cooks is a series of online cooking videos, targeted at Weber University college students, which will make you feel great about your own cooking no matter what your skill level.

Now here's a side of Hollywood you rarely see (unless you watch a lot of talk shows)- celebrities posing for photo ops with animals and genuinely loving every minute of it!
Here's a pic of Ryan Gosling, he looks like he's really enjoying some one-on-one time with an okapi at the Cincinnati Zoo. There may be a rom-com in their future...
Rich Ferguson is at it again, this time scaring people on the sidewalks with a third arm trick that really gets 'em jumpin!
His third arm getup would also work with a Halloween costume, and whoever wears it gets to go around scaring the wits out of people all night.

Clap along with Peppa the cat as she stands up on her hind legs and claps to the beat. Peppa would make the best audience member ever, except for the fact that nobody can hear her clap!

Cosplayers On Ice is an annual event which lets the cosplay community strap on some skates and take to the ice in costume with their fellow anime geeks.
The event is both a fun way to get together with cosplayers from around Atlanta, Georgia and promotion for the anime convention MomoCon which takes place there in March.
Roman Atwood and Dennis Roady from Sketch Empire rented a dinosaur costume and took to the streets of Cleveland, Ohio to scare people out of their skins, and people were so terrified by the animatronic suit it's like they never got the memo about dinosaurs going extinct!

It turns out Twinkies were never really going to disappear, people were just too lazy to make their own.
The homemade ones, however, probably don't have a shelflife like the real deal Hostess cakes, so this kit shouldn't be added to your post-apocalyptic supply cache unless you plan on adding your own preservatives.
There is no way that any other dog is as happy as Benny, he's so happy he looks like his eyes are about to pop out of his head! Even taking a bath doesn't bum little Benny out, his happiness can't be dampened by mere water.
It seems Brazilians are so used to seeing dead people that they don't bat an eye when someone wheels a coffin into the elevator with them.
However, when the corpse in the coffin seemingly comes to life, they're clawing at the doors in sheer terror! Awww, grandpa just wants a hug!

They're minimalist with lots of style and really cool color schemes, check out the awesome posters for Jaws and The Birds at the link below, they're truly terror-ific.
Designer Olaf Breuning wanted to see his whimsical coffin designs brought to life, so he commissioned some coffin makers from Ghana to build the kooky corpse boxes for him, since the people of Ghana enjoy using eccentric coffins in their own funeral practices.
These melting popsicle, chocolate bar and snowman shaped coffins are strictly for decorative use only, but Olaf may consider taking one for a ride when he kicks the bucket!
Gandalf is all sorts of excited about The Hobbit adaptation coming to the big screen, so he dusted off his bagpipe, pumped up his unicycle tire and took to the streets to spread the word.
Best video moment- the guy in pink chasing after Gandalf, seemingly about to start a fantastic quest of his own!

We wish you a merry Sithmas, we wish you a merry Sithmas, we wish you a merry Sithmas and a Force filled new year!
Santa likes to wear a costume every once in a while, and since he's such a genuinely good guy it makes sense that he would like to dress up as one of the most evil guys in the galaxy.
Everything Is Terrible! loves to expose interwebs article surfers to video oddities that probably should have died with the VHS cassette, like this little doozy featuring a blue skinned bad guy who knows all kinds of naughty signs, and a signing damsel who dances out the story in the back alleys of the big city.

When asked to consider what Charlie Brown and the gang might dress up as for Halloween I bet your first response isn't "characters from the Evil Dead trilogy!"
Well, it should be, because Charlie has found his Boomstick and he's about to clean the undead out of the doghouse.
