Unintentionally hilarious horror movie-themed anti-smoking PSA


 
This short anti-smoking PSA produced by Enniscorthy Youthreach in conjunction with the Irish Cancer Society has its heart in the right place even if the results are unintentionally hilarious.

The two-minute spot on the terrors of peer-pressure features homages to famous horror villains, including Jack Torrence (“I’ll huff and I’ll puff… MAINLY PUFF”), a Freddy Krueger with cigarette fingers instead of knives, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Ghostface, Chucky, Hannibal Lecter, and a Reagan McNeil who, in the best scene of the video, vomits a whole carton’s worth of cigs at the protagonist. 

In the end, we find that this was all the hospital-bed nightmare of someone ostensibly dying of lung cancer.

The storyline, acting, makeup, and special effects are all gloriously no-budget and awesomely terrible, making this, perhaps, the most entertaining anti-smoking PSA of all recorded time.

Watch it after the jump…

Your favorite horror villains… playing with kittens!

Leatherface with sweet kitten friends. R.I.P. Gunnar Hansen.
 
While conventional Internet wisdom via “rule 34” suggests that “if it exists there’s porn of it,” the Internet is so much more sophisticated today: if it exists, there’s a high probability that there’s cutesy fan art of it. Such is the case with Kat Philbin’s precious renditions of famous horror icons playing with kittens.
 

 
Philbin’s illustrations, available through her Etsy shop, depict such classic villains as Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Leatherface, Pinhead, Hannibal Lechter, and the Alien Queen being “attacked” by sweet, delightful kitties. The cynical horror purist in me wants to hate this… but how could I? These prints are absolutely adorable.


 

 

 
More horror greats and their kitties, after the jump…

Sexy fantasy pin-ups of Jason, Freddy, and Michael Myers

Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kreuger, and Michael Myers: the three most popular horror icons of the past 40 years… now homoerotic super-hunks thanks to British artist Karl Von Frankenstein.
 

 
These portraits are so wrong and so, so right.
 

 
Beyond mere erotic art, these lowbrow images conjure a stylistic bouillabaisse of Ghanaian movie posters, Tom of Finland heroes, and tacky ‘80s Miami trash colors. 
 

 
Karl Von Frankenstein’s Facebook page has more of his work, but only his Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers, and Street Trash pieces fit this sexy beefcake style. Here’s hoping we see a lot more of this in the future—Pinhead, Leatherface, and Jigsaw are begging for this treatment.
