Resident Evil Theme Park Attraction Opens In Japan

The wild, mutated zombies from the Resident Evil video game franchise have invaded the Universal Studios Japan theme park, and no man, woman or baby-shaped morsel is safe from those infected by the T-virus.

Each night until November 11th the park is transformed, via props, 3d projection mapping and an invasion of costumed characters, into places found in Resident Evil, such as an Umbrella Corp. building and downtown Raccoon City.

Adventurous eaters can grab a bite to eat at the Biohazard Cafe and Grill, and there are even some shambling stage shows too rotten to miss. Now that's entertainment!

The WTF Wagon Is The (Un)Official Car Of Halloween

This wicked looking car is known as the WTF Wagon, and the driver clearly lives life as if every day is Halloween.

It claims to be fueled by baby juice, but we're pretty sure that the WTF Wagon actually runs on the fear emanating from drivers and pedestrians that encounter this beast on the road!

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many young men want to follow in Charlie's winning footsteps, and don't we all wish we had tiger's blood running through our veins?

Iconic Horror Movie Houses Recreated In Paper

Paper artist Marc Hagan-Guirey combines principles of origami and papercraft to recreate horror movie houses in miniature form, like this blue edition of the Overlook Hotel from The Shining.

He calls his works Horrorigami, and each of these impressive pieces were made using a technique called kirigami, where one sheet of paper is both cut and folded to achieve this spook-tacularly sharp look.

Even Freddy Krueger Has Nightmares

Who, or what, could give scarfaced slasher Freddy Krueger nightmares? Why Kirby, of course! That jiggly little ball of fluff is so cute and cuddly that he makes Freddy afraid of all those feelings welling up inside him.

Artist zillabean has this to say about their illustration:

The only thing a Dream Stalker fears is a Dream Warrior.

'Nuff said!

Adults dressing like their childhood heroes is a Halloween tradition, but the Kidults in this gallery have taken nostalgic costuming to a new level.

How Much Is That Connery In The Window?

Rows of (mostly) celebrity masks line the window of a novelty shop in Dublin, and it's hard to put your finger on when this pic was taken.

On one hand Austin Powers, Uncle Fester and Michael Jackson are present, which means this pic could be pre-Y2K, but then you've got David Beckham, Bin Laden and Graham Norton looking all 21st century...

So when was this picture taken? Hit the link above and find out! Bonus points to anyone who can name all the faces in this window.

Cats Aren't Big Fans Of Halloween

Photo: Cheezburger 

Kittehs aren't big fans of costumes or Halloween for that matter, and some little furballs dread the yearly arrival of All Hallow's Eve so much it starts to affect their mood. 

Do your little kitteh a favor and keep the costuming to a minimum- put it on, snap some pics and let those kittehs roam free.

And if your kitteh attacks while you're strapping a cute creepy little mask on their face you have only yourself to blame!

Kia Hamsters Spotted In Austin, Texas

Photo: 4ELEVEN Images/Flickr

The Kia Hamsters like to do some serious partying after they're done filming car commercials, and what better way to let off some steam than hanging out on the streets of Austin, Texas around Halloween?

Just don't ask them to be your designated driver, because those scenes were all created using digital special effects. Dancing, on the other hand, is what these hip hamsters do best!

Beware The Dreaded Catahedron

A dangerous beast is on the loose and seeking vengeance against all of humanity!

It's called the Catahedron, and it has been forced to wear an annoying and uncomfortable costume for the last time.

The Catahedron was initially brought into existence by a costumer of felines named maicoh, who has detailed her experience on a website called Instructables, replicating the process so we'll all know what not to do...

She has unleashed this geometric madness upon mankind, will this litter box we call a world ever be the same again?

Creating The Zombies On The Walking Dead

(YouTube Link)

The Walking Dead has brought the zombie apocalypse to the small screen in a big way, and owes much of its success to the frightfully good looking shambling undead, the largest and stinkiest supporting cast on television.

A team of artists led by special effects wizard Greg Nicotero bring the zombies (back) to life with a combination of prosthetics and CGI animation, and the team won a well deserved Emmy for their outstanding makeup.

See how it's done in this insightful behind-the-scenes video, and you'll find bonus tips on zombie makeup at the link below.

This year there are more monsters, and terrifying mazes, on board than ever before, and if you visit her decks you'll be glad that the Queen Mary is permanently docked in Long Beach, California and no longer hits the high seas...

Church Gets Into The Halloween Spirit With Star Wars Tableau

Not every church has turned against Halloween, and some are even getting into the Halloween spirit by setting up fun tableaus on the lawn.

Aside from the fact that Luke looks mighty uncomfortable about Jesus laying hands on him, this is a funny Halloween scene set up by someone who clearly still has a sense of humor about religion.

What Would Star Wars Droids Wear On Halloween?

Droid loving geek art illustrator Andrea Gerstmann has asked, and answered, a very poignant scifi question with her latest series of works- what would R2D2 and C-3PO wear for Halloween?

Apparently they would wear costumes very similar to what humans would wear, although R2 looks way better than any human in his Oscar the Grouch getup!

Pictures Of Terrified People In The Nightmares Fear Factory

Niagara Falls, Canada is home to one of the most terrifying haunted houses in the world- the Nightmares Fear Factory.

With a claim to fame of over 100,000 people chickening out, these pics of unsuspecting guests losing their minds with fear prove that only the brave should attempt to traverse this terrifying attraction.

It's fun to see people frozen in fear at the sight of something scarifying, but some of the people in these pics must be hamming it up for the camera, or else they're just embarrassingly easy to scare!

Deliciously Disgusting Human Anatomy Cakes

Halloween themed food is meant to look gross yet taste good, so these cakes shaped like body parts fit right in, whether they were made specifically for Halloween or not.

From less morbid shapes like a human heart and a pair of cold sore encrusted lips, to the ugh inducing disgusting delights shaped like a melting human head and worm infested lungs, there's a slice of something sick for every connoisseur of the creepy!

Tired Of Sexy Costumes? Wear A Well Researched One Instead!

There's a website called TakeBackHalloween.org which is dedicated to promoting the idea of wearing a well researched and empowering costume on Halloween, rather than defaulting to a sexy costume which shows off your body instead of your brains.

They'll show you what it means to dress up like a powerful woman of the past, from classic movie stars to warrior women and mythical goddesses, and the only asset you'll be showing off is what a badass you are!

Custom Made Mass Effect Armor Is Most Impressive

At first glance this spaced out suit of N7 armor, like that worn by Commander Shepard in the video game series Mass Effect, may look like a digital rendition and not the real thing.

Well, it's as real as it gets folks, and it even sports an equally impressive price tag (around $1300).

Created by craftsman David Carpenter of BioWeapons.com, this is cosplay gear at its finest, and commands respect from even the most diehard DIYer.
