10 Weird Pieces of Art to Give You Nightmares
I like weird, horrible and depressing stuff. I'm not really sure why, I've kind of been questioning it lately, like even wondering if it's ok? Like, it's a whole genre - horror films, all about people getting murdered in horrible ways and sometimes I like it and other times I'm like, wait, why do I like this? Why do WE like this, cause it's not just me, otherwise, it wouldn't be in the market.
... Anyway, I don't have an answer yet, so, whatever, I'm not gonna ponder about too much today and just share the weird stuff I found that I enjoy and want to recommend!
It's a movie about parents who lie to their kids about everything - like they make them believe cats are monsters that will eat them whole. Pretty cool movie!
2. I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream
A short story about how a AI Machine has killed everyone in the world except 5 people. Very depressing and it was also turned into a video game!
3. Blindness by José Saramago
A novel about how blindness becomes an infectious disease, like the flu, it spreads from person to person until the whole world becomes blind. Pretty dark stuff, dude
4. The Strange Thing About The Johnsons
A short film made by Ari Aster, who also made Midsommar and Hereditary. It's honestly a pretty gross film. Hey, man, I mean, I'm making a list of weird and horrible art, I don't what else to say
5. Anything by David Filth
Most famous for creating Saladfingers, but he also paints some pretty horrific stuff.
6. Art by Francis Bacon
Another artist, known for painting some horrific art. Again, I kinda wonder what drives someone to paint these sort of things, but also why others will enjoy it.
7. Propaganda: Directed by Slavko Martinov
It's a fake documentary that's suppose to look like it was made in North Korea about what is terrible and wrong about America - and the thing it, it does a really good job of showing how fucked up America is
8. List of Unusual Deaths on Wikipedia
I guess not really art, but still, a list of all the weirdest way people have died in the world
9. Requiem For A Dream - the novel
Yeah, before it was a film, it was a book. I haven't read it in a while, but I think it was really well written. I may go back and read it again
10. The Paper Chase
An alternative rock band. The songs are so weird but also vivid. I very much enjoy this band.
Alright, well, this is out of my system, I think I'm just gonna focus on more positive things after this post.
