Cannibal Jack-O-Lanterns are My Favorite Jack-O-Lanterns



Cannibal Jack-O-Lanterns

Halloween is just around the corner and as I sit deciding whether or not I’m going to carve a pumpkin into a festive Jack-O-Lantern this year, I can’t help but think about some of my favorite designs.

When I was a kid, Jack-O-Lanterns were pretty formulaic. You might see small variations but a couple of goofy eyes and a wicked grin pretty much covered the spectrum of what I saw in small town East Texas.

Nowadays, pumpkin carving is an art form all its own with competitions across the country and beyond. The more creative the better.

Naturally, as more people got involved, themes emerged. You’ll find pumpkins with everything from superheroes to full scale horror movie scenes carved into them. Honestly, it’s pretty amazing.

But the ones that I have loved the most are the cannibal jack-o-lanterns. I’m not entirely sure what that says about me, but I don’t question it too much because there are few things more entertaining to me than a pumpkin chowing down on its kin.

Perfectly normal, right?

With that in mind, I decided to go looking for some of my favorite cannibal jack-o-lanterns online to share here. Let me know which ones are you favorites in the comments below!

You’re invited to a barbecue!

This guy showed up on the lawn of Joyce Dragonosky and Laureen Callo back in 2010 and he looks like he’s having the time of his life!

The Messy Eater

This guy is a mess, but he seems to be enjoying those pumpkin guts an awful lot!

Last Chance to Escape

I love the look of shock on the little guys face. Has he accepted his fate or does he have one last chance at escape?

When your fellow pumpkins just aren’t enough…

What’s a guy to do when he’s eaten everything else in the pumpkin patch? Turn on the patrons, of course!

Completely over it…

I don’t know. Something about this guy reminds me of some old farmers I knew who were over just about anything and everything and they’d sit on their front porch chawing…

So happy…

This is one happy looking little cannibal to me.

Happy Hannibal

Remember that scene in Hannibal where Anthony Hopkins feeds Ray Liotta some of his own brains? So did the folks who carved this pumpkin.

Just a Bite

This is the guy who is always grazing at the pot luck table before everyone else is ready to eat!

When you’ve had too much…

Of course, even cannibal jack-o-lanterns have to avoid overeating on Halloween. No one wants to end up here, right?


The Grinch Goes for Gore in ‘The Mean One’




The Mean One takes The Grinch and inserts a lot of gore and horror into its foundation. Recently, movies like this one and Winnie The Pooh’s Blood and Honey are taking beloved tales and turning them to horror. We can totally get behind the new trend. The Mean One stars Terrifier’s Art the Clown actor David Howard Thornton as The Grinch. That’s just one more reason to be excited about the macabre take on the classic Suess tale.

The synopsis for The Mean One goes like this:

“a hairy, green-skinned grump in a Santa suit, living on a mountain high above the town of Newville, despising the holiday season. Young Cindy You-Know-Who (Krystle Martin), whose parents were butchered by The Mean One twenty Christmases earlier, is returning to town to seek closure… but when the Mean One launches a new reign of terror that threatens to destroy Christmas, Cindy finds a bold new purpose – trapping and killing the monster.”

We can’t wait for the trailer for this one. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long since the full teaser drops on Monday (November 28).The Mean One arrives in theaters beginning December 9.

‘Fear’ Trailer Introduces an Entity That Makes Your Worst Fears Come True




Deon Taylor is severely underrated as a director and producer. His work has been a penchant of horror, thriller and social commentary that is absolutely biting. These have included Fatale, Black and Blue, The Intruder, Traffik, and more. His latest film, Fear takes a group of friends on a vacation who come across an entity that is capable of making your worse fears come true.

Taylor’s work is a tapestry of a throwback to grindhouse thrillers combined with a strong current of the strongest of black filmmaking voices in the 1970s. I’m always on the lookout for what Taylor is up to next.

The synopsis for Fear goes like this:

In this psychological horror film, a group of friends gather for a much-needed weekend getaway at a remote and historic hotel.  Celebration turns into terror as one by one, each guest faces their own worst fear.

The film stars Joseph Sikora Andrew Bachelor, Annie Ilonzeh, Ruby Modine, Iddo Goldberg, Terrence Jenkins, Jessica Allain and TIP “T.I.” HARRIS.

Fear arrives in theaters beginning January 27.
