Who Was Behind These 25 Currency Designs? I Think Someone Is Getting Fired.

Not all money is as cool and sleek-looking as American money. I mean have you ever been to Canada? (Just kidding… sort of). 

What’s even stranger than American or Canada money are these 25 crazily designed currencies from around the world. I’d love to know who thought it would be a good idea to mint these. Just wait until you see #13.

1.) Zimbabwe – A Trillion Dollar Bill.

Yes the Simpsons were right, a trillion dollar bill exists, just not in the United States. We can thank hyper inflation for this one.

2.) Germany – Wooden Money.

After WWI Germany was in a deep financial crisis that caused mass hyper inflation. In response some people began printing their own money.

3.) Cook Island – Bizarree Scenes.

The Cook Islands printed up a series of notes all featuring different, exotic scenes from Polynesian culture.

4.) Fiji – Silver Meteorite Coin.

This 2012 coin contains actual pieces of a meteor that fell in Germany in 2002. Not sure why that makes any sense for Fiji to have on their money.

5.) Republic of Palau – Holy Coin.

This coin contains a tiny bit of holy water from Lourdes in southern France.

6.) Republic of Palau – Pearl Coin.

These coins actually contain a green freshwater pearl in them.

7.) Belarus – Animal Money.

Instead of putting historical figures or politicians on their, Belarus decided to put furry adorable animals on its money instead.

8.) Easter Island – Pop-Up Coin.

The Easter Island Heads feature prominently onto the country’s currency. These coins in particular feature the heads, and they pop up.

9.) Tristan da Cunha – Concorde Coin.

This coin contains just a tiny bit of the Conrode’s heat shield.

10.) China – Oldest Paper Money.

The Chinese used paper money long before the Europeans. This note here dates back to 1380.

11.) Benin – Marijuana Money.

This 100 Franc coin is ordinary except for the bright green marijuana leaf on the back.

12.) Zaire (today the Democratic Republic of Congo) – Punched Out Bills.

When Joseph Mobutu was overthrown in 1997, instead of printing new money, the government just reused the old ones with Mobutu’s face punched out.

13.) Mongolia – Talking Money.

Sometimes money does literally talk, like these Mongolian coins featuring JFK. When pressed the coin played part of JFK’s “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech.

14.) Northern Ireland – George Best 5 Pound Note.

This note commemorates the Manchester United soccer player George Best, but the artwork here is far from the best.

15.) Philippines – Big Money.

This 100,000 Peso note holds the record for being the biggest bill still in circulation.

16.) Ivory Coast – A Coin With Real Mammoth.

Inside each of these coins in a small piece of a mammoth.

17.) Nazi Germany – Concentration Camp Money.

These were never actually used at concentration camps. The Nazis only created them to show to inspectors from the Red Cross.

18.) Indonesia – 20,000 Rupiah Bill.

We have high inflation to thank for this one. Also maybe they could have chosen a better picture for the former minister of education and culture, Ki Hadjar Dewantara.

19.) Zambia – Silver Proof Coin.

This bizarre coin has a full once of silver it in. The shape is a weird combination of Austraila and Zambia.

20.) Thailand – Square Money.

For those times when rectangles just aren’t doing it for you. This square bank note is one of the largest pieces of money ever produced.

21.) Russia – Parchment Money.

This money was issued by a Russian-American trading company back in the early to mid 1800’s. It was used at Russia’s American colony.

22.) Thailand – Queen’s Birthday Celebration.

To celebrate the queen’s 72nd birthday the Thai government issued these 100-Baht notes. Umm. Yeah not very artistic.

23.) Hungary – 100-Million-Billion Pengo Note.

Hyperinflation is responsible for this absurdly huge note from 1946. It was only worth about 20 American cents.

24.) Yugoslavia – 500,000,000,000-Dinara Bill.

Another example of rapid hyperinflation.

25.) Germany – Emergency Money

This 50-Pfenning note was a piece of emergency money. Pretty creepy, right? Emergency money was always produced locally and often depicted different scenes from folklore.

(Via: List 25)

Wow I seriously can’t believe Benin would be a marijuana leaf on their money. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall for the meeting where that was decided.

These Actors Portrayed Famous People From History. How Did They Do?

In order to tell a story, actors transform themselves into a different person. The hope is that they’re convincing enough to captivate an audience.

That job gets more difficult when your audience already has an idea of what the role should look and sound like. That is the case in almost all biographical films. Skilled actors may not have to look the part, but a terrible actor could be the spitting image of the person they’re portraying and still fall flat. How do you these these stars measured up in other people’s shoes?

1.) Angela Bassett as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got To Do With It

2.) Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh in Hitchcock

3.) Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash in Walk the Line

4.) Reese Witherspoon as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line

5.) Dennis Quaid as Jerry Lee Lewis in Great Balls of Fire

These 17 People Tried To Use The English Language… And Failed SO Horribly That It’s Painful. OMG.

There aren’t many people in the world today who truly value the English language. Thanks to social media and digital communication, abbreviations and poor grammar are infuriatingly commonplace. Even people who think they are proficient forget some simple grammar rules (like the difference between using “fewer” and “less”). Everyone has failed at some point. There may even be multiple glaring errors in this article (but hopefully not). No matter what mistakes you have made in the past, your failings will never compare to what you’re about to see. These people attempted to use the English language and failed so spectacularly, it’s a wonder they’re able to walk around without bumping into things or running into a Greyhound bus.

1.) If YOU’RE going to be condescending, at least be correct.

2.) Whew. At least it wasn’t diabetes.

3.) This one is so bad, it’s hard to follow.

4.) You’re right.

5.) Organisms are overrated.

6.) Mmmm. Pizzer.

7.) This hurts my brain.

8.) I prefer human beans to pinto beans.

9.) Don’t be so surly, man.

10.) The school system failed this man.

11.) What’s a “fing?”

12.) I had a friend that lack toast intolerant. He just hated not having toast.

13.) Covering someone with fiberglass insulation is pretty rude, though.

14.) I really, really, really hope her house didn’t smell like incest.

15.) There are just so many reasons why you won’t.

16.) BOOM.

17.) Here’s hoping English was their second language.

(H/T BuzzFeed) If your brain hurts right now, that’s totally normal. Don’t be alarmed. Just laugh, shake your head, turn on PBS and share this with your friend’s who’d totally get it.

This Island Was Used For Top Secret Chemical Weapons. I NEVER Expected What’s There Now.

Okunoshima is a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan that can only be accessed via a ferry from the mainland. Okunoshima played a key role during World War II as a poison gas factory for much of the chemical warfare that was carried out in China.

This is evident today from the empty buildings on the island that used to be the poison gas research and manufacturing facility, as well as a museum that was opened in 1988 in order to alert as many people as possible to the dreadful truths about poison gas.

But what’s so odd about the island today is what’s made its permanent home there.

The ruins of the gas manufacturing plant.

Inside the power station that supplied the factory, both buildings stand completely empty today.

This museum opened in 1988 to educate people about the island’s poison gas role in WWII.

But what’s this?! A bunny rabbit…

…a whole bunch of bunnies!

Cuddly attention seeking bunnies.

The bunnies are the result of a group of schoolchildren releasing eight rabbits on the island in 1971.

The rabbits did what rabbits do best and now the 7,500 square foot island is home to more than 300 of their floppy-eared descendants, earning it the nickname Usagi Shima, or Rabbit Island.

What used to be a top-secret military site manufacturing poison gas is normally not exactly the kind of place you’d think to spend an idyllic afternoon feeding bunnies.

But tourists flock to the island every year to see the cuddly little guys.

Hunting the rabbits is strictly forbidden and dogs and cats may not be taken onto the island.

Looks like these rabbit found themselves a perfect little heaven on Earth.

I like to think that this island is the rabbit owner’s equivalent of a holy pilgrimage. All I know for certain is, I want to visit and be attacked by cuddly awesome bunnies.

I love how something so bad turned into something so sweet. Rabbit Island sure beats Poison Gas Island.

This Baby Boy Loves This Remote So Much, He Just Can’t Handle It, LOL.

When we first entered the world as babies, everything was new to us. We may not remember it, but we lost our little baby minds over everything. Peek-a-boo? Tearing paper? Puppies?! Babies are just awesome because of their reactions to the most common things.

It’s hard not to smile when they become mesmerized by things that really aren’t THAT cool. This little guy couldn’t even handle himself whenever he saw the most magical thing in existence: the remote control.

I have a feeling this little man is going to feel the exact same way about the remote whenever he’s 33 years-old. Be sure to send to your friends using the buttons below. They HAVE to see this!

Would You See Any Of These Movies If The Posters Looked Like This?

American movies often make their way across the globe. Posters and promotional material must be adapted for the countries where the movies play. Usually, while the language on the posters change, the images tend to stay the same.

When the material can’t be imported, some places get creative and do their own marketing. One such place is Ghana, where local artists (with varying levels of training and ability) step in to fill in the promotional gaps. The results are…well, they’re something.

Some of them are just poor renditions of the official posters. Some are so out there, we can’t even begin to understand what they were going for. But these were all approved. And despite spanning nearly 40 years of films, the style is oddly consistent.

1.) Slither, (2006)

Yeah, what can you do when a pensive worm monster stabs you in the brain? Sheesh. At least the dog, along with its eerily human eyes, seems okay with everything.

2.) Enter the Dragon (1973)

Who could forget Bruce Lee’s famous line from this martial arts classic: “Oh no, you di’n’t, girlfraaaand!”

3.) Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974 – 2013)

Well, there’s clearly a lot of limb-chopping in whatever movie from the Chainsaw franchise this is supposed to represent. So much so that even the chainsaw-wielding lunatic doesn’t have legs. Oops.

4.) Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985)

This poster is even more ridiculous than the fact that this made-for-TV movie was even created in the first place. Someone explain that bipedal lizard thing in the bottom left, because that is not on the original poster.

5.) The Road Warrior (1981)

I don’t know what movie this is, but it’s not The Road Warrior. None of this happens in The Road Warrior.

6.) Sleepy Hollow (1999)

Does…does the Headless Horseman have breasts?

7.) Hercules (1983)

In which Exasperated Dad Hercules tells Hercules, Jr. to please not play with the mini-hydra.

8.) Mission: Impossible (1996)

Tom? Tom Cruise? Is that you?

9.) Mission: Impossible II (2000)

Tom? What did they do to you, Tom??

10.) Ghost Ship (2002)

In which the boat eats people. Giant people.

11.) Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 – 2010)

This was for the lesser-known Nightmare movie, where a concerned Freddy Krueger lets his friend know that there’s a pickaxe in his face.

12.) The Mummy (1999)

There’s a lot going on here, but I think Imhotep needs a bra.

13.) The Mummy Returns (?) (2001)

I think this is a poster for the sequel to The Mummy, based on the half-man, half-scorpion the artist seemed to be going for. I couldn’t even begin to tell you what’s going on here, though.

14.) The Terminator

The top image of Schwarzenegger is fairly faithful to the official poster, but for some reason, this artist decided to attempt another image on the bottom. The results were not so great.

15.) Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Where is that blue hand coming from? Why is the “o” in “Terminator” a little heart? What happened here?

16.) Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

In which the newest model Terminator, this one rather jowly, attends a funeral.

17.) Conan the Destroyer (1984)

I know Grace Jones is androgynous, but come on.

18.) Planet Terror (2007)

There is so much wrong with this I don’t even know where to begin. That anatomy? The fact that this is not a character in the movie? If only someone had made another version.

19.) Planet Terror (2007)

Oh, okay, that’s so much better.

20.) Hellboy (2004)

That’s not Hellboy. I have no idea who this lounging robot is, but it’s no one in the movie.

21.) Alien (1979)

That is not how you hold a knife. Also, it seems the artist decided to merge the alien and human characters into these purple, oblong-headed terrors.

22.) 300 (2007)

Jeez, Leonidas. You might want to get that lazy eye checked out before you head into battle.

23.) Evil Dead 2 (1987)

This seems like it should be the Army of Darkness poster, but I don’t think it really matters at this point.

24.) The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

You know, the James Bond Movie where Bond teams up with a giant red fish and drives a car that defies physics. Also note that “Me” is a correction, meaning this poster originally read “The Spy Who Love You.”

25.) Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)

In this version of the classic vampire tale, Dracula deflates his victims. It seems that when at a loss, the people who made these posters just filled in the empty spaces with explosions and planets. Explosions and planets sell, right?

26.) The Matrix (1999)

In this reality, Laurence Fishburne is a ginger.

27.) Cujo (1983)

Someone put a springer spaniel’s head on a cow’s body, and Mom’s head appears to have a stem.

28.) Catwoman (2004)

I mean, there’s not much you can do to make this movie any worse. But that tongue is really grossing me out.

29.) Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite (1996)

This is why you proofread. Make your own jokes about blood spots and white pants. I’m done.

30.) Your guess is as good as mine.

You mean you’ve never seen the classic The Fierce Ghost Eats Human Region?

There’s a part of me that wants to see the movies these posters are advertising. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see James Bond team up with a giant fish?

Everyone Knows That Prison Is Bad. But What You’ll Find In These 25 Is A Horrifying Nightmare. OMG.

Those who commit terrible atrocities deserve to go to prison. However, if a criminal was sentenced to life in any of these prisons, it would be a punishment worse than death. These 25 institutions across the world are infamous for being filled with rape, torture, disease, cannibalism and massacres. It would be more humane to kill the inmates instead of letting them live out the rest of their lives here. It’s appalling.

1.) Stanley Prison, Hong Kong: One of the six maximum security facilities in Hong Kong built in 1937. Before Kong Kong eliminated capital punishment in 1990, it was once a popular place for it.

List 25

2.) Attica Correctional Facility, New York: This maximum security/supermax has held a number of the most dangerous criminals in the world. It’s famous for the Attica Prison riot on September 9, 1971. 2,200 inmates rebelled and seized the prison taking its 33 staff as hostage. 39 people died.

List 25

List 25

11.) San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima, Peru: This is the toughest prison in South America, it was built to house 2,500 inmates and now holds over 7,000. It has a lax environment where prisoners can buy and sell as well as gamble on cockfights. Visiting prostitutes are common as well.

List 25

12.) Rikers Island Prison, New York: A brutal prison where beatings were extremely common, this notorious prison even used inmate “enforcers” that were deployed by the guards. It was filled with violence and aggression.

List 25

13.) San Quentin Prison, California: The oldest prison in the state, it opened in 1852. Now, it is the largest death row for male inmates in the US.

List 25

14.) Gldani Prison, Tbilisi, Georgia: Georgia has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe because of its zero toelrance approach, but that means its prisons are filled with tuberculosis epidemics, savage inmate treatment, assaults and more.

List 25

15.) La Sante, Paris: The name means “health,” but the conditions of this prison are terrible. It is overcrowded and torturous treatment there is common. 122 prisoners committed suicide in 2002 and 73 in 2003. They swallowed drain cleaner.

List 25

16.) Alcatraz, San Francisco, California: Most know “The Rock,” the famous prison built in the 1920s. The inmates here lost touch with the outside world and were subject to abuse from the guards.

List 25

List 25

List 25

24.) Carandiru Prison, Brazil: Here, riots triggered mass executions by guards. There have been 1,300 deaths in the course of its 46 year history. The human rights violations here are unbelievable.

List 25

25.) Camp 22, North Korea: This is the notorious Hoeryong Concentration Camp, which has gained international attention in 2012 after its warden defected to China. It has been open since 1965 and holds 50,000 prisoners. Three generations of dissident families have been imprisoned there. The inmates are tortured and used as test subjects for human experimentation.

List 25

(H/T List25) How can governments look then other way when inmates are being raped, tortured and eaten by other humans? It’s mind boggling. Share the truth about these terrifying prisons … and make sure to never, ever commit a crime again.

These Incredibly Meta Moments Captured In Photos Will Leave You Staring…

The definition of “meta” — referring to itself or to the conventions of its genre; self-referential.

Simple enough, but things can get Inception-level confusing when you think about it too much. And there are some tricky people out there who like to do that on purpose just to mess with our brains. It’s very effective. Take a look.

1.) “What would you like on your vanity plate?” “Vanity plate.”

2.) James Franco is James Franco’s biggest fan.

MTV

3.) Pizza inception. GIMME.

4.) This guy who’s very proud of his looks.

5.) This repeat offender.

6.) Macauley Culkin one upped Ryan Gosling.

10.) Nicolas Cage embraces his internet fame.

11.) The news reporting the news reporting the news reporting the news.

Here Are The 26 Most Cringeworthy Ways People Have Proposed. I Hope She Said No To #5.

Giving the love of your life a perfect marriage proposal is tricky business. Not only do you want your significant other to say yes, but you want the moment to be absolutely perfect and absolutely them. Every person who is about to propose has played the moment over and over in their heads after hours of planning… Except for these people. Instead of planning out their proposal in a thoughtful and special way, it seems that they just winged it. Saying yes to an awkward and cringeworthy like this is definitely a bad idea.

1.) What a delicious proposal.

2.) Don’t trust your friends to do it for you.

3.) This is a good way to cause a wreck, not begin a marriage.

4.) … okay, this is almost impressive.

5.) NO NO NO NO NO.

6.) I hope this is a joke.

7.) … sigh.

8.) This could have been SO GOOD.

9.) How does she say yes? Order popcorn chicken?

10.) It’s kind of worth it for her heart attack.

11.) I don’t think she’ll appreciate this less-than-flattering photo.

12.) His face will be SO red if she says no.

13.) I think I’d prefer a ring.

14.) Is there an emoji for “disappointed and depressed?”

15.) Yes, pizza, I WILL marry you.

16.) BRB, let me pee before I answer.

17.) Trashy is the new classy.

18.) You just failed so hard, Duke fan.

19.) Cut your hair and put on a shirt. Then, maybe.

20.) Rocks… they say what we’re too afraid to.

21.) I wonder how many women said no to this interesting offer.

22.) The effort is nice, but the execution is more than a little strange.

23.) I take that back. THIS is strange.

24.) Ohhhhh duuuddddeeee. No.

25.) Mild… just like your romance.

26.) This was almost perfect, until it wasn’t.

Hopefully these people found a way to have a “happily ever after” ending (even if their marriage began by sticking a ring into a chicken sandwich).

You’ve Been Married For Too Long When Your Conversations Sound Like This.

If you’ve been living with your partner for a long period of time, you (probably) have a good sense of communication with that person…right? Communication skills are extremely important in a relationship (especially during arguments). Unless you and your spouse have a very particular sense of humor, we advise doing and saying the complete opposite of the behavior exhibited here.

Consider yourselves warned. 

1.) This one should probably be taken more personally, though.

2.) I think he takes things too personally.

3.) At least she didn’t say 300?

4.) You could have at least tried for better beer, though.

5.) I like to think this is a recurring event.

6.) This is why you just don’t ask that question.

7.) It’s insensitive to two people for the price of one!

8.) Admittedly, it’s not the most romantic way to broach the subject.

Open communication is a beautiful thing in relationships. Of course, things can sometimes get a little too open. Let’s keep it civil, people!

The Jerk Store Called And It Wants These 20 People Back. They Are the WORST.

We’re all taught the “Golden Rule” as children: do unto others as you would have done unto you. Well, apparently these people missed that lesson. Then, they took an extra curricular course on Being Absolutely Evil. These kinds of people are just the worst.

Giving people the benefit of the doubt can be a positive strategy in life… but these people? Never, ever, ever trust:

1.) The monster that thinks this is okay.

2.) The people responsible for these Oreo abominations.

3.) The second commenter on this photo.

4.) The person who thought this was a good place to leave a glue stick.

5.) Whoever printed this helpful reminder.

6.) The person responsible for these t-shirts.

7.) This comedy genius.

8.) Whoever left their hotel room like this.

9.) This person who might be more than a little passive aggressive.

10.) This funeral home.

11.) Whoever thought this would be a nice gift.

12.) This so-called “friend.”

13.) This guy’s cat.

14.) This kid who “helped” out with the chores.

15.) This person who found a way to make cyclist seem even worse than usual.

16.) This deceitful father-daughter duo.

17.) The creator of this “word” search.

18.) This not so great neighbor.

19.) The person who doesn’t know how trash works.

20.) The worst guy at Starbucks.

(via BuzzFeed.)

Let’s just hope that karma is real and it will bite these people in the butt shortly.

Since it’s release almost a year ago, there have been about million covers of the anthemic ballad “Let it Go” from Disney’s wildly popular animated film Frozen.

Actually, probably more like a million and a half. With each new incarnation of the empowering song, originally sung by cast member and Broadway icon Idina Menzel, is a fresh attempt to out-cute the one before it. And they all melt away in comparison to this little girl’s perfect rendition. Take a look!

Even better than the original.

Appreciate The Horror Genre The Right Way With These 10 Scary Films.

Halloween is approaching fast, so it’s time once again to break out the horror flicks! They’re fun any time of year, but they’re especially fun when you curl up with (or hide under) a big blanket with some friends. Or alone…if you dare.

There are so many horror movies and, unfortunately, a lot of them are pretty terrible. Don’t get me wrong, I love a terrible horror movie from time to time. There is something satisfying about laughing at something that was obviously meant to terrify.

But there are only so many horror movie tropes you can see before they start to bore you. Creepy little girls in white nightgowns, flash cuts, jump scares, and oozing black substances get old. With so many sub-par films out there, it can get disappointing when you’re in the mood for a scare.

So we compiled a list of some of the best and scariest movies we’ve ever seen. We’re leaving out a lot of the classics, because you’ve probably heard of them. Instead, we’re including smaller movies and movies that might not be traditional “horror” films, but are creepy anyway.

1.) The Haunting, Robert Wise, 1963

The 1999 sequel never happened. It never happened. Okay? This horror movie is perfect for people squeamish about horror movies, because the scares are in your mind rather than on the screen. You don’t have to wonder when something is going to appear and shock-scare you, but hardened horror veterans can appreciate it, too. It’s a classic story of a group of strangers in a supposedly haunted house looking to do research on the paranormal. And, yes, they find it.

2.) The Innkeepers, Ti West, 2011

A hotel with a known ghost legend is about to close. Two ghost hunting employees, alone for the hotel’s last night, are determined to find ghosts before they have to find new jobs. And they do…kind of. This is another film that’s more psychological than just things popping out and shrieking, and it requires thought. Director Ti West stated in interviews that he’s not content to let the audience in on too much. Instead, he makes them come along for the ride without the benefit of figuring out what’s actually going on.

3.) Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli, 2007

No, wait, hear me out. Ignore that this movie became a franchise with about a billion sequels. The original movie is actually pretty good. It’s a found-footage movie chronicling couple Micah and Katie’s move into a new house and the way they cope when things start…happening. It’s a pretty slow-paced movie, with little in the way of scares or special effects, but what it offers is effective. It’s also an interesting take on the “haunted house” genre, with the people, rather than the space, being haunted. Skip the sequels, though. They’re not worth it.

4.) The Orphanage, J.A. Bayona, 2007

A couple moves into an old orphanage with the hopes of refurbishing it and making it into a home for disabled children. When they arrive, their young son Simon begins to make friends, in particular a little boy named Tomas. Trouble is, no one can see Tomas. As the movie unfolds, secrets about Tomas, Simon, and the orphanage become unveiled. Though there are horror elements, and the film is chilling and suspenseful, but what carries this one is the compelling story. It’s also produced by Guillermo del Toro, so it’s visually striking as well.

5.) The Conjuring, James Wan, 2013

A family of seven moves into a picturesque old house. When things start getting creepy, they call in famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Then things get really creepy. This film was shot and styled like a classic 70s horror movie. It has nothing in the way of gore, violence, sex or even swearing, but was given an R rating simply because it’s really scary. It’s also lightyears better than Wan’s Insidious films.

6.) Event Horizon, Paul W.S. Anderson, 1997

The crew of a spaceship discovers a ghost ship off Jupiter that disappeared after generating and entering a manmade black hole. The trouble with creating black holes is you might open up into a dimension of pure chaos, but the rescue crew doesn’t realize this. What follows is the descent into both figurative and literal hell for the crew. This is not a film for children, with a considerable amount of violence and gore. And while it’s scary, the film’s real horror comes from the impending doom, the isolation of space, and each of the crew members’ personal demons.

7.) Jug Face, Chad Crawford Kinkle, 2013

This Southern gothic tale is not what you expect. Whatever you expect, you’re probably wrong. The movie centers on a rural, isolated community that worships “the Pit,” a hole in the ground exuding a supernatural force…and demands human sacrifice. Again, whatever you’re thinking now, you’re also wrong. It’s a desolate, ominous, character-driven piece with a mythology of its own.

8.) The Moth Diaries, Mary Harron, 2011

This movie is “horror” in the traditional sense, drawing inspiration from the gothic novels of the 19th century. When a newcomer strikes up a close friendship with her best friend, boarding school student Rebecca struggles with the feeling that something isn’t quite right about this new girl. Or maybe she’s just jealous? Using the classic vampire tale as its foundation, this movie is also an exploration of the friendships of teen girls. It’s an interesting departure from the basic vampire story. Vampire fans should take a look.

9.) Alien, Ridley Scott, 1979

“But wait,” you say, “that’s a sci-fi movie!” Yes, it is, but it’s more science horror than science fiction. It’s described as a “slasher movie in space,” and director Scott knew from the outset that fear was the feeling he wanted to inspire. The crew of a mining ship encounters a strange distress call, and when they investigate, an alien life form sneaks aboard their ship. This is the kind of movie that’s scary because of what you don’t see, and the claustrophobic settings add to the feeling of inescapable doom.

10.) “In Chambers,” Aleksander Nordaas, 2011

This one is a short! Clocking in at only 10 minutes, you can watch this on your lunch break for a spooky afternoon. This short involves nefarious men with medical equipment and a great soundtrack. Explaining any more would give too much away.

So grab that popcorn and turn the lights down. Actually, on better thought, you might want to keep them on for these!

A Mother Picked The Wrong Biker To Judge By His Looks. Here’s His Epic Response.

Unfortunately, it comes somewhat naturally for most of us to judge other people without really knowing them. We’re all a product of our pasts, shaped by our upbringing and experiences. But it’s important to look through all of that and remember that judging someone by their outward appearance truly is like only reading the cover of a book. And maybe the inside flap at best. Here’s a guy’s personal post that drives that point home.

“”

So, there you have it. Don’t make hurtful assumptions about other people, especially those that you are already assuming want to kill you. Because that makes no sense. Share this guy’s experience with others. Spread the no-judging message.
