Make Your Own Tentacle For Under $20 – Honestly who among ust hasn’t wanted their own tentacle? (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

The Coffin Club – Short documentary about a group of senior citizens in New Zealand who get together once a week to construct and personalize their own coffins. It is upbeat and adorable. (via Anna))

Michael Sheen, David Tennant to Star in Neil Gaiman’s ‘Good Omens’ – 1) It’s actually Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens. 2) I can hear all the geek heads exploding from here.

The Scariest 25 Minutes on U.S. Television – Mental Floss reminisces about “Amelia,” the psyche-scarring third segment in the Trilogy of Terror.

Event Horizon: Inspiring Hellish Nightmares for 20 Years – A fond look at the cult classic.

The Sea Witch Sets the Record Straight – Ursula may have had a point.

    Uncanny Magazine is one of my favourite scifi magazines. They publish fantastic stuff, don’t they? :)

    Resomation sounds like a better alternative than being pumped full of embalming fluid to me. I hope it becomes mainstream by the time I die.

    Sea Witch Sets the Record Straight was a fabulous story as well. At first I wasn’t sure whether it was set in the Disney version or the much darker original version of The Little Mermaid, but I loved it even more once I figured that little mystery out.

    Have a nice weekend, and thank you for all of the wonderful links.

    Eyeball patches on the elbows sounds exactly like something my co-workers would expect me to do. Which doesn’t always coincide with something I would actually do.

    Of all the segments in Trilogy of Terror. The Zuni Doll was the one I remember the best. It was especially creepy when at the end where after she nuked the doll in the microwave, she was waiting for her boyfriend to come over crouched down holding a big butcher knife and grinning with a mouth full of razor sharp teeth

    Yeah, the biggest geek head that exploded was Gaiman’s own; he made the point on Twitter that it was a collaboration. (Good Omens is the only Gaiman I really like, probably because I adore Pratchett’s writing.)
