Who scares you with a crazy imagination?


H.R.Giger really scares me, a Swiss Surrealist painter, and creator of "The Alien":-

He really gives me the creeps on video below:-

Sacha Baron Cohen. The naked wrestling scene in BORAT is nightmare enducing. Hilarious? Yeah. But still makes me want to bleach my brain.

I actually like Geiger's art. It is a perfect blend of the beautiful and the horrific.

Hi MarkS,


It is hard for a poet to be scary, but perhaps Robert Southey? Link below:-

Cool! Southey doesn't have Poe's give for rhyme and rhythm, but it's a great little story nonetheless.

Hi MarkS and Vasily,


Thank you for your comments.....Dark surrealist painters can do it for me, i remember buying my first Man, Myth and Magic magazine in my early teens, it had a painting by Austin Osman Spare on the front cover, i have never liked him since, lol. He was associated with Aleister Crowley, painting and info. on links below:-
