4 Ridiculous Monsters Who Are Getting Their Own Horror Films

#4. Ouija — An Actual Ouija Board
Hey, what’s the best way to freak out a room full of kids under the age of 15? A Ouija board! The only problem is, once you figure out how they work, Ouija boards lose pretty much all of their appeal. It turns out that a bunch of people subconsciously tugging on a piece of plastic just isn’t all that bone-chilling. Unfortunately, Hollywood, on a streak of giving us movie versions of board games that absolutely no one wants to see, has teamed up with Hasbro to bring us Ouija, a movie about a bunch of teenagers getting murdered by their novelty fortune-telling device.

Oops

Rescue Me.
the gutter where my footprints are imprinted,
sitting on the stoop with a cigarette
and a miserable demeanor,
hunched over my knees ready to throw up
all the love i’ve wasted on the wrong people
and all the love wasted on me.

New Bedford’s traincars sit in an empty lot
collecting rust while the city scrambles to
find money to throw at it,
but we’re too busy figuring out every other
little fucking thing that
would break someone’s neck or heart or
leg.

I can smell the rain. the air is damp. the
flowers are cowering in the wind, maybe
scared this is the storm in which
they fall over.
i hope they make it,
i hope we all make it.

you don’t have to let them catch you,
if you run till your lungs are nothing but
embers in your fire.

the pier sticks out into the sky like
dinosaur bones, long-since destroyed
with old age and used condoms and broken bottles.

i walk down there from time to time
intent on finding broken pieces of anything
to build a poor man’s dreamcatcher.

the sky melts into October and nobody’s there
except me, standing on the edge of the earth,
ready for the butterflies to take me.

you know i’ve been waiting forever.
you know i’ll be waiting till the sands eat my ashes.
who knows what angels look like except assholes who paint them.

Gain A Follower, Lose A Follower (Dat Tumblr Lyfe)

let the dog in.

he’s been out in the cold catching fleas with his body,
howling at the moon like he forgot he sleeps
at the foot of the bed.

here’s to us, our ghosts hanging out
at our favorite park benches, still
talking through the hardest of times.

those times are over,

now you paint alone and i write poems
about different people, now.

in my sink are old knives,
some covered with peanut butter,
some covered with blood.

depends on how i felt that day.

the ashtray is overflowing.
the beer cans are lining up on the
windowsill wishing they had wings
so they could
leave the stench their empty insides
have created.

all along i thought i’d be okay,
and i was right.

somewhat.

right?

there’s a girl who lives down the
street from me that stares in the mirror
thinking she’s fat but she is just as
disgustingly beautiful as the rest of us.

her sink is filled with old knives too.

on the television,
god speaks to Anderson Cooper. I guess I gotta believe now,
Cooper’s the only man on the news
I trust,

morning, noon or night.

shit, though.

we can be grateful for even the little things, right?
we can kiss men we sort-of love,
that’s our choice.

we can be broken by women we
invested our skeletons into like they were
coffins.

that’s our choice.

the dog is still scratching at the door
and i am lying on the living room rug
singing a song i’m making up
as i drool beer-foam onto my cheeks.

(tears?)

no no no no no.

let the dog in, he’s crying now.

let him cry with me, won’t you, neighbor?

let us weep.

because another October is here and that means
the kids will put on their masks and I will
take off mine, at least for the night.

that means another year will end, another year will come.
the sun will rise and die and we will rise and die

yes yes yes yes yes.

put on your favorite record.
read your favorite book.
rip up your favorite love letter
from a lover you don’t know any longer.

it’ll all be okay in the end,

(i think).

i think.

He got used to drinking cold coffee. He got used to a lot of things.

—The Open Road.

It’s midnight.

when you start drinking now
don’t expect to be up
for anything important.

in some cases
don’t expect to be up
at all.
