Internet Awesomeness: Horror Edition

* Sharon Needles - Call Me on the Oujia Board

Sharon Needles was the winner of the 4th season of RuPaul's Drag Race and wowed the judges and viewers with her dark, horror inspired look and quirky personality. She stays true to her roots with this super catchy song and video that references numerous horror films: The Omen, Poltergeist, The Bad Seed, The Exorcist, Children of the Corn, and It. The song is dancey and upbeat, which appeals to wider audience, while still having her signature style. I especially love the Pennywise outfit at the end.

* Carrie Prank

To market the new Carrie remake, MGM and Screen Gems orchestrated a prank to shock New York coffee shop customers. A girl seems to have telekinetic powers and wrecks havoc after a guy spills coffee on her laptop. The prank is fairly elaborate and looks realistic, using spring loaded pictures and books, remote control tables and chairs, and an impressive stunt. It could be put on a movie screen and look quite impressive. The reactions of the patrons are priceless.

* Rasputina - Transylvanian Concubine

I first heard this song as Drusilla danced to it on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It has a deliciously dark sound thanks to the cellos and captures the allure and danger of vampirism well.
