There are lots of things we really dig other than horror around the Dread Central offices. As long as it's bizarre in some fashion, we're all in. One thing we have a passion for is wrestling that's not of the PG-rated WWE brand or the old folks home known as TNA. Give us Dragon Gate, New Japan, Ring of Honor, and of course Luche Libre any day! Speaking of which ...
With everyone out desperately trying to find the best deals and save the most money on this hellish shopping day known as Black Friday, it's really easy to lose your shit, become frustrated, and nearly end up trampled or in jail.
Now that October is over and the added madness of AFM has been put to bed, we can finally breathe again. And you know what that means, right? More disturbingly funny (or horrifying) user videos to help you kick off your weekend in the strangest fashion possible. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends ... The Return of the WTF Friday Video of the Week!
For those that don't have the benefit of Xbox Live or Playstation Network, the good folks at Western Digital have unveiled their latest and greatest creation: The WDTV Live Hub.
No, no one has recorded the great "Mandylor" song; however, over on the official YouTube page of a movie musical genius named Goldentusk, he has added his own lyrics to the very popular Saw theme song.
Today's WTF video comes directly from the Foywonder archives. Released in 1978, quite obscure today, Matilda was a silly box office bomb starring Elliott Gould as a hard luck agent promoting a boxing kangaroo named 'Matilda' looking to challenge the heavyweight boxing champion. The movie might be even more notorious as the film that nearly killed the McDonald's Happy Meal.
You have seen them in stores. You watched in horror as others bought them for their "loved" ones. You've mocked anyone that dares to wear one in front of you. Looking for a little WTF to usher in the weekend's frightful activities? Don't worry, kids. We've got you covered. Or should we say "IT" has you covered?
Horror films have many tried and true formulas, but few end up being as spooky as those that have something to do with the evil little bastards known as ... children.
The year was 1969. The American Social Health Association put out a new public service announcement to warn people that anybody can get a sexually transmitted disease. Anybody, especially happy, attractive people of all ages smiling along without a care in the world to the most infectious song ever performed about the threat of venereal disease.
That's right, kids! Time for another edition of our WTF Friday Video of the Week, and this one is stacked with the type of strangeness that has become a favorite around the Dread Central offices! Dare you see what's on tap?
This really should have been last Friday's WTF video given the date. Oh, well. Posting this on the wrong date is probably how David Lynch would have wanted it anyway.
I'll say it again. Whenever you're looking for a perfect WTF video for Friday, there's no place better to turn than Japanese television. One of the most popular Japanese superheroes is the insectoid motorcycle-riding, ascot-wearing, high-kicking Kamen Rider. And only in Japan will you find a kid's show where the villain is a genetic hybrid of Adolph Hitler and a starfish.
Sometimes you just have to fall back on a classic. If you haven't previously seen this wonderfully *bleep*ed up video, then today is your lucky day.
This week's video pulls off the rare double whammy of WTF-ness. As if a music video showcasing the pro wrestling career of a guy who wrestled back in the early Nineties dressed like Freddy Krueger wasn't strange enough, the absurd song accompanying the video of Freddy going buck wild in a wrestling ring is a novelty song called "Do The Freddy" featuring cackling by Robert Englund himself.
With "America's Got Talent" in full swing, we figured we'd showcase a little talent from around the world. Our kind of talent. You know, the kind that leaves you shrieking and wondering when this hell will end, if ever!
