File This One Under WTF?

Creepy fucking gnome! (click for larger image)While technically not movie news, or even horror news, some footage appeared online that was so strange we couldn't help but do a story on it.

Longtime Dread Central reader Mark Vale sent us a link to a news story that appeared on The Sun Online detailing a video account of a creepy fucking gnome (I like writing that here on the site almost as much as covering the movie Donkey Punch) that was terrorizing a group of kids from General Guemes, in the province of Salta, Argentina. Lucky for us one of the teens had a camera phone that could record video! YAY!

Clickify the above link to read more about this pointy-hatted, sideways walking antagonist and to see the video. We don't know how much cred this story holds, but if this shit continues, we're flying The Foywonder out there to take care of business. He'll learn that little bastard!

Under the category of Why TF. It's a hoax perpetrated by these people, small dwarves like that can't really properly walk so they do things like ride in motorized wheelchairs, and probably even walk sideways. First it was that witch flying on the mountains, the Superman alien humanoid, and now this.

It's quite obviously a kid version of one of the monsters from THE SLIME PEOPLE. Notice the comparison in shape - http://www.badmovies.org/movies/slimepeople/slimepeople1.jpg

This was on several other news sites as well, including Fox News. So it's not just The Sun reporting it. I think it's great, this world needs a good Gnome invasion...even if it's just a midget in a cone hat. At least he's taking time out of his busy midget life to walk sideways down random streets.

I never said it was a credible news source. ;) I'm well aware it's your version of the Weekly World News, but damn that video made me giggle! LOL

Wow! Someone's quoting The Sun as a credible news source... You do know that in the UK The Sun is the equivalent of the National Enquirer. Still, best thing about The Sun was page 3 anyway :-)

Sideways walking gnomes. Evolution is angry with us.

Looks like just a little person walking sideways. Why exactly is this scary?
