I’m not sure what exact category to place these under (because, yeah, that’s how strange these bits are) so I’m noting them down here. Movies scene that caught us off-guard, Twitter threads that gave us sleepless nights and bizarre stories from around the world – this is the strange library where they all belong.
Some of those bizarre moments include:
- This scene from Mother where the crowd is such a huge fan of the author, they have to consume his newborn
screengrab/mother (brightness adjusted)
… and the mother navigates the crowd only to reach a shrine that has the baby’s remains. Or very little of them.
especially when the story starts with something like this,
“The first time I saw him, I was experiencing sleep paralysis and saw a child sitting in the green rocking chair at the foot of my bed.”
- The Lure, a horror musical about mermaids who love human flesh, takes a grand shit on any fantasies you had about mermaids as a kid
- SynDaver Labs’ artificial cadavers that even bleed

5. The Malaysian man who fell inside a bubbling wok and gave a truly ‘human touch’ to the bizarre ritual
- This Irish beach that disappeared 12 years ago and is said to have reappeared overnight

10. The man who was so afraid of ‘the end of the world’ that he spent the past 30 years in a bunker
Iron County Sheriff’s Office
The man (in Utah, US) was apparently so fearful of the apocalypse, he only moved between bunkers and underground government installations, which he, over the time, packed with provisions. Cops are currently investigating this case.
Dude with robot girlfriends. Creepy. One can only assume how that ill-fated moment will unravel when Sophia, the robot who wants to start a family but wants to kill humans, meets this man who will at least be willing to take up the first option.
- Ryan Reynolds’ death in Life

Goddamn! First, they didn’t have to kill him off. But kill they did. By abandoning him in the space lab where the alien was. The alien sees an opening and makes a dash for it, by entering his mouth and slowly eating him up from the inside while he’s still alive. Brutal. And creepy to imagine. Watch the scene below if you want to.
- The time this surgeon branded the livers of the patients he operated on back in 2013
and, in 2017, casually admitted to it. His colleagues spotted his initials ‘SB’ on the livers of two patients during a follow-up procedure.
- The moment the world realised there’s single mother whose 30-year-old son looks no more than three years old because of a rare disease
⭐️ creepy + ⭐️⭐️ cute
