I just cannot tell. I think this is the winner of last week’s bear mask Photoshop contest, but I’ve seen such horrors. Such maddening horrors.

The picture above wasn’t technically Ozimov’s main entry, but I feel as if his take on one of the strangest moments from The Shining is a great deal more horrifying that a bunch of Ewoks.

Plus he’s worked in sad Luke from the contest prior, so those bonus points put him over the top in terms of my arbitrary and possibly imaginary point system.

So Ozimov is this week’s winner, though it was an incredibly close competition. I really loved Orionsangel’s Star Trek entry:


And Gorrilanator met an unbearable fate when he made this one:


Gene Jacket’s entry hit a little too close to home:

So many excellent entries this week.

And by excellent I mean terrifying.

And then Kazooie started eating through Clokie’s version of Banjo’s neck.

And so, while Ozimov may be the overall winner with his masterpiece...


...I think it’s safe to say we all lose in the end, and the nightmares win.

Sleep well, children.
