It Came From the Internet!
There's never been a better time to be a horror fan as the good stuff we want to see isn't just available in theatres and stores anymore. Nope, some of horror's best pieces have been seen or can be found on television. That's right, kids, you don't even have to leave your house!
Here at Dread Central we know that the Internet has many uses besides porn. For instance... we appreciate the stupidity of the average person, and any time we get to sit back and watch as someone's own ignorance breeds chaos, we take it. Case in point...
So there's this whole sub-genre of porn based on phony casting calls… whoops, I mean… We hear there's this whole sub-genre of porn based on phony casting calls.
There was a time when all a movie had to have going for it was a cool poster and I'd see it. I distinctly remember walking through the aisles of Parkway or Royal Video... diggin' on their horror sections and feeling like I had just struck gold.

Never mind paper folding a tiny boat or a Pterodactyl - that's just child's play (although we do admit that anything featuring a Pterodactyl is pretty damned cool). Now this? This is what we're talking about! Your favorite haunted houses in paper form!
Kids are much more open-minded about paranormal activity than adults, don't you think? They have no filter and will tell you straight out what they see, even if we don't see it.

While cruising the Internet (we do that a lot in between working like dogs and appreciating kitten and puppy videos), we have a tendency to explore the darker side of the world weird web. It was during these wondrous moments that we came across the following...
It's times like these when we LOVE the Interwebs! YouTuber goestoeleven has reimagined what the hit AMC series "The Walking Dead" would look like if the show aired in 1995. Check out the opening credits.
Thousands of years ago it crashed, and this thing... gets thrown out, or crawls out, and it ends up freezing in the ice. Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own the North Pole. I mean, they taught the elves everything they know.
Over the years we've seen a lot of different kinds of foods that made us scratch our heads and think to ourselves: "Yeah, we're not gonna eat that." Popeye's Rip'n Chick'n facehugger-looking chicken sandwich, KFC's Double Down two-breast chicken sandwich with no bun and bacon and sauce holding it together, etc. But this...
