Families Find Creepy Porcelain Dolls (That Look Like Their Daughters) On Their Doorsteps

Over the course of this week, 11 families in the same neighborhood in San Clemente, California, found creepy porcelain dolls on their doorsteps. As if that in itself weren’t enough to fuel indefinite nightmares, each doll resembled a girl who lived in the house. The girls who received the porcelain doppelgangers were about 10 years old,…

I Am Really Not A Fan Of “Celebrity Cat Impersonator” Betsy Bushytail

In theory, this video of “celebrity cat impersonator” Betsy Bushytail giving us her best Maru should be something I enjoy. It sure sounds like something I’d enjoy, right? But I don’t. I hate it. It’s creepy and horrible and feels like something I should not have seen, like I’ve been violated or am violating i…

“Self Taught” Hypnotist Tried To Make A Client His Sex Slave

Talk about creepy: a 40-year-old “self taught” hypnotist in the UK is facing a prison sentence for persuading a woman under his trance to show him her breasts. Timothy Porter, who served in the military until 2012, violated a woman who trusted him to give her hypnotherapy for anxiety and weight management. After they’d had…

Are Creepy Hackers Watching You Right This Second?

Stealing credit card information and social security numbers is so passé nowadays. The new fad of invading privacy online is to actually watch unsuspecting victims, or, I’m sorry, “slaves” as these hackers like to call them, through their own webcams.

That’s right, ladies: internet hackers have just found an alarmingly inventive way of…

Some Creep Is Filming Videos Of Your Legs On The Subway And Posting Them On YouTube

The good news is that YouTube has pulled an account belonging to “John Zippy,” a man who was surreptiously filming women’s legs on the subway through a camera placed inside a Starbucks cup and posting the videos online.

The Soapbox: Why “Creep Shaming” Is Total BS

On Thursday night, I had what seemed like a pretty good first date. By Friday lunchtime, any chance of a romance between that guy and I had fallen spectacularly to pieces.

I wrote about what went down in a post called “An Open Letter To The Guy Who Called Me ‘Crazy.'”  I’ve bee…

Harmony Korine Creeps Out Proenza Schouler’s New Collection

You certainly don’t hire writer/director/auteur Harmony Korine to do “normal” stuff. In fact, Korine probably hasn’t been acquainted with “normal” for quite some time. So it’s no surprise that his new short film “Snowballs,” made for Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2012 collection, is pretty batcrackers. While there’s nothing overtly NSFW about it, it is a touch…

The “Dear Woman” Video: These Guys Are So Creepy (Even Though I Agree With Them)

I love the feminist sentiment espoused in this “Dear Woman” video by what seems to be a spirituality-based group called Conscious Men … but can we talk about how creepy these guys are? What’s with the music? The vacant intonation of voice? The cold stares? It’s just bizarre. But hey, thanks, men: I accept…

Man Makes A Quilt From 58 Pairs Of Women’s Panties

What sort of man sews a quilt from 58 pairs of women’s panties? Louis Garrett of Missouri, that’s who. With his hoary beard, tattoo across his forehead, and wife beater tank, he’s a Creepy McCreeperson sent from Central Casting.

Louis only wants women’s panties made from rayon, acetate, and silk for hi…

Ring! Ring! Ring! It’s The Erotica Phone

That’s not just a tacky sculpture of a woman with no nipples—that’s a vintage ad for an actual phone! I love how this redheaded lady is buck naked except for the gold leaves covering up her lady bits to preserve her modesty. To see a full-sized (NSFW) pic, click after the jump…

ESPN Reporter Erin Andrews’ Peeping Tom Nightmare

Poor Erin Andrews: some creep filmed the ESPN reporter — without her permission — naked in a hotel room and circulated the pervy vid on the Internet. The video, which has been pulled offline by many sites, may have been shot with a handheld camera because it allegedly moves back and forth across the room,…
