Check out this new "Scares" video from 5 Minute Horror! (Just be sure to take your shades off first.) "Darkness"!

There is nothing more terrifying than Darkness. It leaves us blind and defenseless against nocturnal terrors. It makes friends and lovers seem strange, foreign and unknowable. It turns every item into a threat, and makes us easy prey for the real threats, the things that go bump in the night. Darkness is scary. Plus, look how much it saves us on production value. Woo-hoo!!

"At All Times"!

Hey, Super Hero Fans, check this out-- a new "Scares" video from 5 Minute Horror-- "At All Times"!

Now, there's an Avenger, am I right? And to be frank, I prefer this costume to the Vision. And isn't it time we reassessed serial killers as the heroes they are? Charles Manson-- The Chick Magnet. Jeffrey Dahmer-- the Human Disposal. We got the spec script, Marvel Studios-- you know where we'll be. Right here at 5 Minute Horror!

"The Pencil"!

Hey, Pencil Pushers-- get the lead out and check out the latest "Scares" from 5 Minute Horror. It's... "The Pencil"!

They say the pen is mightier than the sword. I don't know about that, but the pencil is sure mightier than the vampire. Just goes to show you, Vlad, stay away from the scribblers at Starbucks-- they may not be the sharpest tool in the box, but at least they have a point.

"Where Ya Headed?"!

Hey, all of you creatures of the road-- Check out this latest "Scares" video from 5 Minute Horror-- "Where Ya Headed?"

And you thought the Hijacker was scary! Never forget whose hands are on the wheel. But there's a lesson here for all of us-- if you're staring at the driver, you'll never be ready for that sharp left turn. Her other car is a hearse.

Check this out-- a new video from 5 Minute Horror. It's "Rain"! Enjoy!

Careful out there, little psychos-- that's not just blood on the road. Things can get dangerous when visibility shrinks down to zero and the roads get slick and there's no one else in the car but you. Sure, the drops hit your car like hammers, and the wipers are powerless against the deluge as it swallows your car whole-- but you'll be okay. Just crank up the Credence and stay alert. You'll get to that rest stop just a few miles down the road. You'll be fine-- right?
