15 Outrageous Halloween Homes

Written by Nate Morgan — September 22, 2014

Reposted from:  http://ilovehalloween.net/blogs/news/16787547-15-outrageous-halloween-homes

One of our favorite things about Halloween are the outrageous home decorations that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Every neighborhood has one of “those” houses; AKA the ones that seem to be in relentless competition for the most festive house award. To say the inhabitants of such houses are dedicated is a gross understatement, and we have nothing but respect for their enthusiasm. So, we’ve collected 15 of the most over-the-top Halloween decorations we could find. Enjoy!

1. Giant Spider

Wow… Looks like the enormous arachnid apocalypse is finally upon us. We just hope they have home insurance.

2. Spider Invasion 

… And as the giant spider apocalypse continues, even the babies lust for human blood.

3. Nightmare Before Christmas Characters

This family deserves nothing less than a personal doorstep visit from Tim Burton himself!

4. Crash Landing

Sadly, these decorations are usually short-lived because the government comes to clean them up immediately.

5. “Pop is Dead”

They forgot “Here lies Yoncé. She (didn’t) wake up like this, and now we can see her halo.”

6. Huge Prehistoric Awesomeness

It would be awesome if they had the Jurassic Park theme playing from hidden speakers as people drove by. Totally bad@#$.

7. Monster Silhouettes 

“Honey, do you ever get the feeling that the neighbors are watching us?”

8. Zombie Takeover

We thought sleek, modern houses like this one couldn’t get any more sinister. We were wrong.

9. Simpsons Extravaganza 

We can’t help but wonder if they like the Simpsons…

10. Colossal Pumpkin King

How on Earth was this built?! We’re pretty sure the reason that man is smiling is because he somehow avoided almost certain death while erecting that monstrosity.

11. Ghost Buster Central

“If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call?”… Not these residents, they’ll just make everything more strange.

12. Inflatable Nightmares

A halloween horror headline: “Oxygen-deprived family perishes after blowing up too many holiday inflatables.”

13. Get the Cops Called to Your House

Yeah, we know “less is more,” but this one may be too realistic for certain neighbors. For those of you wanting to duplicate this, don’t be surprised if the po po show up.

14. Pumpkin Palace

If this isn’t a fire hazard we don’t know what is.

15. This is Halloween

Last but not least, the ultimate Halloween decoration money shot. This is our favorite, by far.

But don’t go anywhere yet! We have to give a shout out to our creative followers: April Victorine and her family created this awesome haunted carriage scene completely from scratch. The skull pillar was created by our friend James Kyle who used chicken wire, expanding spray foam and milk jug skulls…

Have some Halloween handy work you’re proud of? Let us know and we may feature you in our next blog post. Thanks for reading!

The Worst Places To Seek Refuge During The Zombie Apocalypse

Posted: 10/21/2014 8:26 pm EDT Updated: 10/21/2014 8:59 pm EDT
If and when the zombie apocalypse is nigh, we will all have to make one monumental decision: Where to seek refuge?

Steer clear of the 25 cities on the map below, produced by real-estate website Trulia. Unless you’re a zombie, in which case, live it up! (Oh wait, you can’t.)

zombieapocalypse

When the undead rise up, hitting the beach in zombie-free bliss will not be an option. Honolulu is ranked as the most appetizing city for hungry zombies.

Residents of Honolulu will make easy targets for the walking dead, what with the city’s high walkability and lack of hardware stores (where there are potential zombie-killing weapons). Honolulu also has a high hospital density, making it easy for zombies to find weak victims, and it is extremely congested, with some of the worst traffic in the nation.

New York is number two on the list, followed by Newark, Boston, and Washington D.C.

Trulia calculated the survivability of the cities using the following criteria: highest walk score, lowest hardware store density, highest hospital density, and most congestion.

So where should we find refuge? We might take a page from the book of “The Walking Dead’s” Rick Grimes and build a fortress in Atlanta — it doesn’t even appear on the map.

Artist Wife Takes Sharpie to Husband’s Car

When the owner of this Nissan Skyline GTR decided that he didn’t like the silver color of his car, he had his wife take a sharpie to it. Luckily his wife was a talented artist, and after over 100 hours of work and a layer of clear coat to protect it, he had himself a work of art on wheels.
