If This Is Happening Outside Your House, It’s Time To Move

If you don’t live in Australia, then you probably have a very high opinion of kangaroos. And why shouldn’t you? They’re cute, they’re seemingly cuddly, and they’ve starred in plenty of tacky but entertaining movies. Sadly, this version of kangaroos is only limited to the silver screen. Kangaroos in real life, especially males, can be quite terrifying. Not only are full-grown male kangaroos giant and muscular, but they’re also notoriously aggressive.

Don’t believe me? Then check this out.

You see? Even the cutest animals are terrifying in Australia. This is yet another reason to steer clear of that country, I guess. On the bright side, at least the spiders are smaller than kangaroos.

This Questionnaire From Serial Killer Richard Ramirez Is Very Disturbing

From 1985 until his death in 2013, serial killer Richard Ramirez (aka The Night Stalker), was in prison. During this time, Ramirez managed to earn himself quite the devoted fan club. Behind bars, he was never short on letters to read and respond back to. At one point, someone sent Ramirez a friendship questionnaire, not unlike something you would send to a new pen pal.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Between April 1984 and August 1985, Ramirez killed 13 people in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

The serial killer was known for his savage violence after breaking into people’s homes in the dead of night. Often, his targets were chosen completely at random.

Because he had so much time on his hands in prison, when he received the friend questionnaire, Ramirez actually took the time to fill it out and mail it back. To say some of his answers are a little politically incorrect would be an understatement.

This 1980 Movie Is So Controversial That The Director Was Arrested…For Murder

What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen? Well, the 1980 Italian-made, cult horror hit “Cannibal Holocaust” is almost certainly scarier than your pick. The movie is considered one of the great cult horror movies of the last 40 years, but it’s not without its fair share of controversy. It’s still banned in a number of countries, and for reasons you’ll soon learn, the director was arrested for murder after its release.

The plot of “Cannibal Holocaust” follows a documentary film crew that goes missing in the Amazon rainforest while trying to find and film real-life cannibals living there.

The movie opens with a rescue team recovering the missing crew’s cans of film.

The found footage is then flown to New York, where a television station wishes to broadcast it. After that, we learn of the terrors the crew inflicted on the natives as well as the horrors the natives inflicted onto them.

Needless to say, upon its release, the film provoked quite a bit of controversy. Because the violence is so realistic and shocking, after the premiere, Italian police confiscated the footage and arrested director Ruggero Deodato.

After his arrest, the courts charged Deodato with murder.

They believed he may have actually killed some of the actors during filming. Making matters worse, Deodato had forced his stars to sign agreements not to appear in any media for one year after the movie. The intent was to make the premise of “Cannibal Holocaust” seem more realistic.

In court, Deodato (pictured below in 2008) was forced to explain how he and his crew achieved some of the more brutal death scenes.

The actors were forced to come out of hiding and present themselves to the court. Eventually, police dropped the charges, though authorities in Deodato’s native Italy still decided to ban the film.

I know I’m supposed to be disgusted at this point, but I actually really want to check this movie out. If you’re looking for a good movie this weekend, you can rent the whole thing on YouTube.

In 30 Seconds, This Silent Film Will Creep You Out More Than Any Horror Movie

While Hollywood can still put out a genuinely creepy film when it wants to, most scary movies these days miss the mark. That’s why vintage films (and even silent films) are enjoying a resurgence at the moment.

If you think silent movies can’t be just as scary as the CGI-filled flicks in theaters today, you’re so wrong. As evidence, I present a clip from the 1911 silent film “L’Inferno.” In this scene, you’ll see Satan enjoying a nice meal made of human flesh.

Even though the effects are crude, it’s still creepier than any movie I’ve seen over the past few years.

I think modern filmmakers could learn a thing or two from old productions like this. Sometimes, practical effects (even if they look weird) can be 10 times more disturbing than anything made on a computer.

This Guy Rendered His Own Brain Scan In 3-D And It’s Morbid, But Also Fascinating

If you stop and think about it, medical technology is almost like modern-day science fiction.

Although the media and society at large pay attention to technological advancements, an outsized share of that attention is focused on more consumer-oriented inventions.

What gets lost in the shuffle is medical technology that is slowly becoming the stuff we once only found in books and movies. Take, for example, what Redditor taurus_manure was able to do following an MRI scan for migraines.

He was able to take data from his MRI scan and use another piece of software to create these 3-D renderings of his own skull.

Pretty wild, right? According to taurus_manure, the process of producing work like this is surprisingly easy.

What you need to do is first get a copy of the MRI data from your doctor. You might have to pay a small fee, but most will give these scans out for free.

Then you can take the 2-D images from the MRI data and combine them to create 3-D versions.

For the more technologically advanced, you can do this process by hand, but the Redditor suggests searching for DICOM 3-D reconstruction software on Google if you’re a beginner.

With the help of such software, you can get up close and personal with the inside of your own head.

But why would anyone do this?

Well, for one, 3-D models can be used to create 3-D printed body parts.

Unless you’re a doctor from the future, you’ll only be able to print those parts in plastic. That being said, it’d still be pretty cool to see your body turned inside out.

Say cheese!

That would be awesome to have on display when guests come over. Talk about a conversation starter, am I right?

PSA: Don’t Anger The Wrong Guys, Or You Might End Up With A Pair Of Cement Shoes

When it comes to vintage crime noir movies, nothing is more iconic than the threat of giving someone a pair of cement shoes.

That is, encasing a person’s feet in concrete and dropping them into a body of water. While Hollywood co-opted this extreme form of mafia justice on the silver screen, it’s unclear exactly how widespread the practice has been throughout history.

But a recent story out of Brooklyn, New York, shows that when it comes to methods of disposal, the mafia says, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Earlier this week, police discovered the body of a 28-year-old career criminal wrapped in black plastic bags on Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn. The man had his arms tied behind his back and his body was weighed down with cement shoes.

New York City Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told the press that the victim had his feet “submerged in poured concrete,” and that it was “obviously a homicide.”

However, those pouring the concrete allowed a little too much air to get in during the process, which caused the body to float to the surface and wash up on the shore.

Traditionally, cement shoes are made by putting a victim’s feet through the holes of a cinder block and then filling those holes with concrete, but buckets are also used. It’s unclear how exactly this victim’s “shoes” were constructed.

At the time of this writing, police have identified the man who was killed but are withholding his name until family members can be notified. Let this be a lesson to never cross someone who can legitimately threaten you with the possibility of using cement shoes.

What Gordon Ramsay Ate In Vietnam Is Insanely Disturbing…What Did It Taste Like?

Gordon Ramsay has earned himself a reputation as a celebrity chef and with an adventurous palate. While this makes for great entertainment for us viewers, it doesn’t always look so pleasant for Ramsay.

Here’s our mild NSFW warning if you don’t have a strong stomach…

Looking For A Creepy Summer Home? How About The Amityville Horror House?

Even if you’re not a big fan of horror movies and supposed stories of true hauntings, you’ve probably at least heard about the infamous Amityville horror house.

That house, which is located at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, is now for sale. The asking price is $850,000.

The story of this horror house begins in 1974. One fateful day that year, 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo went on a killing spree. By the end, both of DeFeo’s parents and all four of his siblings were dead.

Initially, DeFeo claimed that the murders were the work of a hitman, but he soon confessed and was sentenced to life in prison. He’s still behind bars today.

Not long after, the new owners of the home claimed to be haunted by several angry spirits. Their tales of paranormal activity became the basis for Jay Anson’s popular book “The Amityville Horror,”and for all subsequent films.

Despite widespread tales of ghosts and demons, there has never actually been a documented haunting on the property. Rather than the Amityville horror, locals refer to the rumor as the Amityville hoax.

(via Unexplained Mysteries)

Regardless of whether the house is haunted or not, the new owners could make a killing if they opened up an Amityville horror-themed bed and breakfast. (Okay, maybe “make a killing” isn’t the best phrase.)
