In 1890, the phonograph company helmed by Thomas Edison began producing talking dolls for children. The product was initially a flop because kids “found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly,” according to the New York Times. Look at and listen to the dolls and you’ll see exactly why they were so…
This is completely wrong. All of it. So, so, wrong.
What you're looking at is a bolt that has just set itself free and launched out of the engine. Are you shaking? I am.
It sounds like some kind of monster squad of doom chanting for your quick and untimely demise, and after you hear it you're going to be convinced that T-Swizzle is the grim reaper herself, demanding that you "shake off" your soul and hand it over before you begin your descent into hell.
If Twisty, American Horror Story's resident clown of creepiness and doom, hasn't given you enough of a reason to stay home this Halloween (although he will get you there, too. He's a clown), consider this chilling news: French police are warning citizens of violent attacks perpetrated by clowns with guns and knives.
A Florida man had to shoot an intruder when his call to 911 was transferred to voicemail. Because that's a thing that can happen. Prepare to never sleep again!
Fire fighters were called to a home in Roseville, California on Tuesday where a family was being terrorized by their housecat. The owner, who wished to remain anonymous, called authorities when Khat (I don't know why that name is terrifying to me) attacked the owner's sister, mother, and brother, sending them to the…
If Spiders terrify you (yes!), the news that they "twerk" will either allay your fears or terrify you even further.
It's almost all over for us. They have virtually perfected their spying techniques. Witness this cat overlord spy, caught in the act of possibly gathering intel for a pending invasion.
Well, this is terrifying. If you've ever wondered whether (private) parts can get stuck inside each other during sex (I have! Because I am always thinking about scary things: sex mishaps, the eventual heat death of the universe, etc.) then you can safely tell yourself that yes it can happen, but it probably won't.…

In case you needed something new to feel anxious about now that you've given up zip-lining, here's some info about a deadly pathogen that could be lurking in your furry friends' saliva.
Yes, super smart, good call, dude. Chris Brown can't stop making great decisions that don't horrifyingly remind the public of his girlfriend-beating past, and I'm pretty okay with that. Seriously, fuck that guy.
If fear is a great motivator, then hopefully this PSA for children's charity Fragile Childhood will get its share of alcoholic parents to stop drinking. The ad, created by Finnish agency Euro RSCG Helsinki, asks "How do our childen see us when we've been drinking?" and shows several terrified children being haunted…
A nice walk on the beach with your family sounds so lovely doesn't it? Strolling by the sea, all of you picking up shells. Heck, maybe your kids even pick up some pretty rocks to take home.
