Watch This: Coffee Shop “Carrie” Is The Scariest Prank I’ve Ever Seen

Coffee Shop Carrie Prank
You Don't Wanna Make This Girl Mad...

Even though this video is very clearly a prank video to promote the “Carrie” remake, and even though the first 30 seconds shows you exactly how the prank was set up, I still found myself covering my eyes and pausing it multiple times to collect myself. It’s THAT scary. I’m guessing the makers of this video had to reimburse more than a few of those coffee shop customers for their drycleaning bills, because finding yourself in a small room with a girl having a telekinetic freakout could cause even the most composed person to piss their pants.

"Your finger could fall off!"

We’ve survived the ”Sharknado” and the “Birdemic” – but are we prepared for the newest killer animal on the block? Check out “Squirrels,” a horror movie about — you guessed it — killer squirrels. It’s currently in pre-production and still in the fundraising phase, but director Timur Bekmambetov is hoping we’ll bite. Bekmambetov has directed actually well-known movies like “Wanted” and “Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter,” and explains the plot thusly:

“When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.”

So it’s got an environmental message, too? We’re sold. [Digital Spy]

Great Horror Campout Friday the 13th

I never much liked horror movies until I took a class in college called Gender and Sexuality in Horror Films (I was a Women’s Studies major, so it didn’t seem that weird at the time). We started with “Psycho” and “Peeping Tom” and worked our way up through the “Scream” franchise. Now I loooooove horror movies and I’m constantly trying to convince my supremely patient boyfriend to watch them with me. I think they’re super fascinating and often get at the core of what’s scary, weird and taboo in our culture. And camping-in-the-woods-with-a-crazy-killer-and/or-demon-spirit — with entries like “Sleepaway Camp,” “Friday the 13th,” “Cabin Fever” and “Evil Dead” — is one of the best sub-genres.

For fellow horror fans, the Great Horror Campout offers a real-life scary movie adventure. Set in the Los Angeles State Historic Park, the campout invites horror fiends to spend 12 hours in the woods fending off creepy crawlies and evil spirits. Visitors can opt for a scare within the “safe zone” or crank up the horror by participating in the “Hell Hunt,” which is basically a terrifying scavenger hunt. As the camp’s founders explain: Keep reading »

According to prominent horror critics, the things that scare us as a culture usually have a lot to do with whatever we repress and suppress. Horror is about the thin boundary between the outside and the inside being broken — both literally, as in the piercing of skin, and metaphorically, as in the destruction of innocence or psychological disillusionment.

Horror is also a very individual thing, and what scares some of us has no impact on others. For me, it’s tight, small, cramped spaces — there’s probably some psychoanalytic Freudian reason for that, but I’m afraid to look too deep. But for others, it’s aliens, or disease outbreak, or serial killers, or kittens (I don’t judge). What scares us does in some ways define us.

After the jump, seven anxiety-producing movies that terrify and scare the bejesus out of The Frisky staff. And share the movie that makes your heartbeat race in the comments!

20 Non-Horror Movies That Are Absolutely Terrifying

I never watch horror movies because I am a total scaredy-cat and it doesn’t take much to give me serious nightmares (I slept in my brother’s room for six months after seeing “Scream” in middle school). But over the years I’ve found that even if you avoid the horror genre altogether, there are plenty of other terrifying movies lurking in the comedy, drama, adventure, and kids’ categories. If you’re looking for an unexpectedly scary movie to watch this Halloween, click through for 20 options, and please share other non-horror films that freak you out in the comments!

Get The Bejeezus Scared Out Of You On The “Saw” Cruise

A Cougar Cruise
Cougars hit the high seas! Read More »

Do you like the thrill of the open water? Enjoy the luxuries of cruising on the open seas? Love living in fear for your life? Then perhaps the Carnival Cruise Lines “Saw” cruise is for you?

Yes, after the spate of music-themed cruises (Weezer cruise, anyone?), the marketing geniuses over at Carnival have come up with a “Saw”-themed cruise. “During this amazing cruise, you will be able to party with the “SAW” Stars and meet other fans who love “SAW” just like you!” announces the press release. “You will attend fantastic pool and dance parties, question and answer sessions and many special events.”

Presumably those “special events” will include murder and torture porn. But will Jigsaw be there? That’s what we really want to know. [Slash Film]
