Not "PC"

Looks like a whole lot of cultural appropriation goin' on here.

Many men smoke, but

Is that guy on the right Fu Manchu, or Ming the Merciless?

Jason Is Here Somewhere

Ok, so now we know where they got the premise for Halloween I, II, and III.

Right! Forgot that one. MOTHER!!!!!!!

Not a chance

No way am I hanging out at this party for more than five minutes. JD undersold this one -- every one of those costumes is unsettling.

Spooooky

Whew! "The Purge" has got nothing on these people.

Sinister

Those homemade masks are a lot scarier than anything store-bought today. The eye slit on the mask of the little fellow, lower right, is really unsettling.
