Title: Shocktober
Post by: Mac on October 05, 2011, 08:29:56 am
I love this time of year for the all the creepy/horror stuff some of the channels celebrate October with. AMC has their 30 days of Horror (http://movies.amctv.com/schedule/movies-genre.php?genre=Horror) and Encore (http://www.starz.com/promotions/fearfest?src=starz_marketing&med=email&content=100411_e_fearFest&cmp=programming) will celebrate Halloween with two days of fun.

I'm sure more is to come.  ;D

Ooooooo Spooky

And check these out by Ray Villafane (http://freshpics.blogspot.com/2011/10/scary-halloween-pumpkin-carvings-by-ray.html)

Is that legit? I mean, does that house really have the lights in sync with the audio and it plays live like that to anyone standing outside the house? Either way, that was awesome. Post of the day.

FYI,

That little girl ruined the shot!! (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_wink.gif)

Agree... you'll be glad to know she was eaten by a horde of zombies when she got out of the shot.

While this is more Techie, than halloweenie, the illusion is kinda goofy... but fun.

iPad2 Halloween Costume- Gaping hole in torso

The man behind the costume is Mark Rober, who works at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. As he explains in the below video, all you need is two iPad 2s running Facetime video chat, some fake blood and a shirt you don't mind ripping a gaping hole into.
