This video reel makes me wonder how often really spectacular practical effects have been misidentified as “shitty cg” by people who like to cry about anything that doesn’t look like Harryhausen Dynamation.

Because I’m very sure I’ve heard those sort of comments directed towards a lot of the creatures showcased here when they appeared in their respective films.


Fucking animatronics.

I just wanted to show people who aren’t too familiar with these things that FNAF was actually pretty on point with the setting and the endoskeletons for the animatronics. Creepy heads laying around and all. This is all Rock-afire Explosion (unsure about the second to last image, but pretty sure). 

If you think these things look creepy online or in-game, you obviously haven’t felt the terror of watching one in person. Don’t go out of your way for that experience, holy shit.

Listen Up 'Cause Y'all Love Creepy Animatronics

so there was this amusement park in the 50s in Massachusetts called Pleasure Island and stuff, super fun family place

but one of their attractions was the “Moby Dick” ride where this fucker here

would come popping out of the water for shits and giggles. he was like the park’s mascot

looks so cute and friendly, doesn’t he. but in reality: 

This thing was a massive, 75 foot water spitting hellspawn. Some people say it would malfunction and rise from the water on its own. 

no thank you

i’m good it’s ok

this lady knows what’s up


Anyway, the park closed in 1969 and it’s all a business park now and an apartment building. People speculate that the whale may be under the water still, but who knows. Still, terrifying 

look at dat face
