When I saw this video of Swedish skier Erik Sunnerheim zooming over the ice while carving with a chainsaw two thoughts popped into my mind: At first I though it was super fun and wanted to try it right away but then, all the things that could go wrong started to pile up in my brain taking the shape of a giant nope.
This man was fishing in Australia when he lured a massive fish in. Or so he thought. Instead, a much bigger fish—a hungry white shark—suddenly emerged from the water to steal his catch right off the line. Far from being scared, the fisherman seems to enjoy the scene—if it was me I would have to ask for a clean pair…
Pilot Sebb Stratta put together this video showing every time his friends joined him in one of his insane acrobatic flights. Their scared faces and uncontrolled reactions are hilarious. Check them out:
Driver Ott Tanak and his co-pilot Raigo Molder crashed on a river during the Mexico leg of the FIA World Rally Championship. Fortunately, they could escape before the water flooded the car completely. This insane video, shot from a camera place in the back seat, depicts pretty graphically one of my worst nightmares.
This excerpt from Straight Up: Helicopters in Action—a documentary released on IMAX theaters a few years ago—shows the dangerous daily routine of the guys in charge of fixing the high voltage lines. One of the workers say that even if you're afraid of heights or electricity you can still do this job—I seriously…
I know these kinetic sculptures by Korean artist Choe U-Ram will haunt me dreams tonight but, their soft movements and the dramatic lighting hypnotized me, and now I have to watch these videos over and over again.
This insane video shows a Russian guy shooting a pistol at his friend's head to test the quality of the K6-3—a titanium helmet with bullet-proof glass used by Russian special forces. Some commenters think this may be fake. Many think it's real. What do you think?
A few days ago, these guys were fishing in Alfonse Island, in Seychelles, when a giant trevally bit the lure. As soon as they started to reel the fish in, a vicious barracuda appeared and ate half of it in just seconds, leaving the fishermen—and myself—in shock.
Meet the Spider-Tailed Horned Viper, a species that lives in western Iran and uses his tail in the shape of a spider as a lure to attract birds. Snakes and spiders are quite scary per se, but this animal combining both seems like a genetically-modified monster conceived by a mad scientist.
I've seen many knife throwers in my life but this participant of Lithuania's Got Talent is really terrible. Two moments made me cringe: The first, when an errant knife sliced slightly one of the assistant's fingers. The other, when another knife passed an inch away of his partner's head.
We've seen insane landings before—those videos haunt my thoughts vividly every time I'm on a plane. And yet, I want to see more. Here are two new videos showing the terrifying wind conditions over Birmingham's airport in England. I just added it to my list of places I don't want to fly to.
Watching this Brazilian girl fishing piranhas barefoot made me cringe. Watching the water boil when the piranhas devour a piece of raw meat she is holding inches away from them made me cringe a bit more. But watching her doing it with such ease is what impresses me the most.
I don't know if this is a human retina melting, a lava well from a volcano near Mordor, or the eye of the devil himself. But what I do know is that the more I watch it, the more hypnotizing, darker, and scarier it gets.
These two guys were enjoying their skydiving so much that they lost track on their altitude meters failing to open the parachute on time for a safe landing. Luckily they fell on what it seems to be a corn field and that softened the landing.
Hungarian artist Ervin Loránth Hervé installed earlier this month an outdoor statue in Budapest's Széchenyi Square showing a gigantic furious man crawling out from the ground. I'm sure this art piece—created for the Art Market Budapest fair—scared the hell out of some distracted drivers already.
The pilot of this flight from the German airline TUIfly managed to correct a sudden dive while landing at the Madeira International airport, one of the hardest in the world. Crosswinds were so strong that he could only managed to get the plane completely straight a few seconds before touching the ground.
The guys at Cinefix reviewed some of the most famous horror films in history to try to figure out what is it that makes us enjoy them so much. At first glance, the fact of getting pleasure by being terrified seems uncanny, but apparently there's a scientific explanation for that behavior and here it is:
Filminute is an international film festival that challenges filmmakers from all over the world to make engaging one-minute movies. You might think 60 seconds are not enough to make you laugh, cry or even scare you to death. This year's winner—directed by Spanish filmmaker Ignacio F. Rodó—will prove you wrong.
I never thought Woody could be portrayed as a horror character until I saw this video of Toy Story mashed up with Annabelle. It's so scary that it will haunt my dreams tonight, tomorrow, and the rest of the week.
A fisherman caught this monstrous 18-inch-long creature while fishing from a dock in Fort Pierce, Florida. Scientists say it could be a rare kind of Mantis Shrimp but further analysis needs to be conducted in order to determinate what the hell is this mutant monster from hell.
