Weird Stock Photos: Halloween Edition

If you follow our blog, you may have noticed that I love crazy stock photos. I even found a bunch of hilarious holiday images last year - and so, with All Hallows' Eve upon us, I decided to see what I could find in the way of unsettling, poorly-executed Halloween stock photos.

Well, I found some winners - all of these came up under a simple search for "Halloween."

10 Weird Halloween Stock Photos

BFF Voodoo Dolls  

BFF Voodoo Dolls

I bet they bonded over being repeatedly stuck with pins. What a drag!

Creepy Smug Kid  

Oddly-dressed Smug Kid

I assume he's all gussied up for his Future Serial Killers convention (or maybe I've just been watching too much Dexter).

I couldn't figure out what's going on with that hat, so I took another look at the original image. It's labeled "The boy in a suit of rabbit"... my top choice for the title of a biopic about his killing spree.

Skeleton Romance  

Skeleton Romance

I'm honestly impressed that the designer was able to capture the tender feeling between these star-crossed lovers. I want to know their back story.

Happy Devil with Quill  

Baby Devil with Quill

This little guy looks so happy... he just loves writing letters to home. But it takes so long to get mail delivered to the underworld!

Santa Hag

Witches love Christmas, too!

This graphic almost looks like it's meant to be an optical illusion, but it's not. At least not that I can see.

Bloody Giant Foot  

Bloody Giant Foot

Like the giant in "Jack and the Beanstalk," this guy will grind your bones to make his bread... with his huge, bloody feet.

Sad Sack Ghoul  

Sad Sack Ghoul

Why so grim? Also, how is this swing being supported, if both of the ropes are on one side?

Flying Ketchup Monster  

Flying Ketchup Monster

This ketchup-based life form must be a relative of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The image label was "Halloween Party" - but not one that I'd want to go to.

Zombie Selfie

"Does this make my lifeless, rotting flesh look fat?"

Goofing Off in the Lab  

Goofing Off in the Lab

This picture must have been taken after a scientist who spent too much time alone in the lab started talking to, and finally began taking scheduled play breaks with, a nearby miniature skeleton.

So, what do you think? Which one of these is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
