NOTE-IF YOU ARE EASILY FRIGHTENED, READ THE SPOILER TAG DESCRIPTIONS FIRST!
Ladies and gentlemen, I represent to you one of the single most unsettling pieces of "art" ever◊ A humanoid being with a hollowed out mask, photography done in black and grey. Much. Worse. Than. It. Sounds. From the movie Begotten.'
SMILE.DOG◊ - original flavour! (Shadowy picture of a husky with a demonic grin, with a faint, barely visible bloody hand in the background.)
SMILE.DOG◊ - extra spicy! (Similarly grinning dog but showing literally all its teeth - also rather disturbing color balance.)
On the subject, here is the supposed "real" picture.◊ (Similar to the first, but in a greener shade, and appears to be placed on a glass panel, also a more prominent view of the hand in the background)
SMILE.DOG◊ - In all-new little girl flavor! (Girl's face with the all-the-teeth grin of the "extra spicy" dog - thankfully black-and-white.)
Let's just call her a demon lady◊. (Old woman's face with a yawning cat's teeth and tongue photoshopped in disturbingly well.)
Cannibal Ronald◊. (Person in Ronald McDonald costume holding an indistinct severed limb with another on the ground - disturbing more for the implications of Cannibal Ronald than for actual gore.)
Spider Hell◊ - not safe for arachnophobes. (Presumably large (no scale provided) spider near a number of offspring.)
ELLEEEWW, CLOPPIT◊Nigel Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys combined with a pony. It's more horrifying than funny.
you open up your closet and find this◊ A person cosplaying as Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, albeit in an unconvincing outfit and with a mask containing a horrified expression.
You will never see Squidward the same way again after seeing this◊ (Cartoon character in washed out color with large red eyes and tears of blood. Supposedly a frame from the infamous "Squidward's Suicide.")
And a similar image◊ associated with Suicide Mouse.avi. Mickey Mouse with blood all over his face and realistic eyes.
Here are a couple galleries (1, 2) of the illustrations Stephen Gammell made for the Scary Stories series. The undead woman and the girl from "The Red Spot" [MAJOR WARNING: body horror/spider horror (it's also described in the spoiler text coming up)] are especially notorious. (Line drawings of emaciated women - the first, well, undead, and the second with spiders coming out of a hole in her face.)
The girl on this children's book cover◊ is just a bit . . . off. a girl who appears to be screaming, with unusually thin arms, and a pencil neck somehow covered by said arms. Her eyes are very wide apart, and she appears to either be gasping or screaming.
The Hands Resist Him◊. Creepy even before you read the story about how it's supposed to be haunted. Once you read the the real story, it's not so...no, actually it's still pretty creepy. (Painting of boy and doll standing at a window with hands touching it.)
The "sequel," Resistance At the Threshold (the middle one), ramps up the creepy doll factor considerably. (Painting of older man and a larger doll with a removable face.) The third picture of the series is rather less creepy, though.
