"In a few hours it’s gonna burst through your ribcage, and you’re gonna die. Any questions?"
That is, unless you can eat it first. These terrifyingly awesome Alien Macarons are the work of Lou Lou P’s Delights, Leeds, England-based creators of bespoke cakes and other forms of edible artistry. They come in equally horrifying yet tantalizing Facehuuger, Chestburster, and fully grown Xenomorph varieties. We’ll take one of each please.
"Oh, no tears please, for it’s a waste of good suffering."
Artist Nicole Cantú created this terrifyingly awesome stained glass likeness of Pinhead from the Hellraiser series. Entitled Lord of Leviathan, the 24” x 36” Cenobite is Nicole’s contribution to the Something Spooky horror-themed group art show the Guzu Gallery in Austin, Texas.
We love that Pinhead’s unforgettable cranium was crafted in 3D. The piece is mounted inside a light box so that viewers can get the full demonic/angelic effect. He’s currently available for purchase here.

When Jeffrey Combs (Star Trek, The Frighteners) and Stuart Gordon (From Beyond, King of the Ants) get together, scary things happen. After all, they made one of our all time favorite horror films, Re-Animator. Now they want to bring their vision to Edgar Allan Poe.
They’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a movie about Poe based on their stage production, Nevermore. This is no joke, the LA Times called Combs’ performance in the play “definitive, so full-blown he does not seem to be so much playing Poe as channeling him.”
We want to see this movie!
Guillermo del Toro, one of our favourite film directors and a tremendous horror movie nerd, just directed the opening sequence for The Simpsons 24th episodes of their Treehouse of Horror Halloween anthology series.
This awesome three-minute-long extended intro and couch gag is so densely packed with references to horror and science fiction movies (including a bunch of del Toro’s own work) that we had to keep pausing it to try and identify them all.
These two freaky toys, an awesomely creepy wind-up monkey and nightmare-inducing evil clown jack-in-the-box, are both screen-used props from the recent supernatural horror film The Conjuring. They were part of a collection of props on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinemas while the movie was playing there.
As you can see from these photos, the raw bread dough is quite green, but the baked eggs turn out nicely browned with just a hint of green inside that makes them appear truly menacing. You’d better eat them all before the Facehuggers hatch.
Speaking of facehuggers, while you’re eating a fresh batch of these creepy little pretzel rolls, we recommend watching Abi T Alien’s entertaining and educational new video about what it’s like to live with a Xenomorph.
After seeing our recent post about Kazuhiro Tsuji’s incredibly awesome bust of Abraham Lincoln, Geyser of Awesome reader Robert G. contacted us about another phenomenal sculptor and artist, Mike Hill. We keep staring at the photos of Mike’s life-size sculpture depicting Christopher Reeve in character as Superman. It feels as though he’s going to blink at any moment.
Based in Los Angeles, CA, Mike Hill has been creating astonishingly lifelike sculptures for over 20 years, many of which you’ll recognize from well known fantasy and horror films. In addition to private commission work, Mike has worked for companies such as the Franklin Mint, Sideshow Toys, DC Comics, Dynamic Forces and Tussauds Waxworks.
The awesome Superman, Frankenstein’s Monster, and Bride of Frankenstein sculptures pictured here are really just the begninning. Head over to Mike Hill’s online gallery to view more of his incredible artwork.

We’re crazy for these repainted collectable figurines by realfun-funeral. She takes the kind of cutesy figurines you can find in bulk at garage sales and adds a layer of gothic darkness. Could that litte vampire boy be any more adorable? His mom even wrote his name on his collar.
She recently asked if she should continue making them. We encourage you to follow her and let her know she should!
French street artist OaKoAK (previously featured here) took advantage of a damaged wooden door to recreate one of cinema’s most famous scenes, the moment Jack Nicholson’s crazed character finally breaks through the bathroom door in Stanley Kubrick’s awesome horror film The Shining, based on the novel by Stephen King.

If you’re a fan of Edward Gorey then you’re probably familiar with his wonderfully macabre alphabet series, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, wherein each letter describes and depicts the untimely demise of 26 unfortunate children.
We were delighted to learn that Clive Barker, English author, director, visual artist, and master of the macabre in his own right, is currently creating an impressively dark Edward Gorey-inspired alphabet of his own. The verse is Barker’s and the illustrations are by Paulo Andreas Lorca.
Be sure to keep an eye on Clive Barker’s official Facebook page/gallery for new additions to the series.
