In anticipation of the latest screen adaptation of Stephen King’s classic coulrophobia-inducing book IT, builder Tim Lydy has crafted this wonderfully creepy bust of Pennywise the dancing clown. Guess I won’t be sleeping tonight! I also love the added touch of the brick-built origami sailboat.
I think Tim might be a bit of an IT fan, as this isn’t the first time he’s rendered these characters in LEGO. Check out his “adorable” Brickheadz versions too. We all float down here. (shudder)
Romanian builder Letranger Absurde has been working on a series of horror movie vignettes, the latest of which is from 1984’s Nightmare on Elm Street. The ingenious parts usage for creating the famous scene of Freddy Krueger coming through the wall is eerily accurate. The use of minifigure shoulder armour for the hands and an Emperor Palpatine head are both quite clever and perfectly capture Freddy. It all comes together to create a believable scene that is actually somewhat unnerving to look at.
As a fan of horror movies, I know that a good monster has to have character. It’s why even if they’re scary, you can’t look away. The Harvestman, by the always intriguing Djordje, has character in spades.
The shapes of this LEGO creation are amazing and a great use of the new pieces released with the new buildable Star Wars figures, but the biggest draw here is the face — the shape, the fact that it only has one creepy yellow eye with just 3 fangs. It looks like it belongs in a Tim Burton stop motion film, and it was built with LEGO. In fact, I would love to see a stop motion horror film starring Djordje’s builds.
I’m not sure what is delayice‘s secret, but ordinary bricks and slopes in his hands assume some extreme degree of cuteness. And even that creepy girl from the horror classic The Ring is crawling just to give you a hug and cuddle with you. Amazingly enough, the structure of the model is so simple and clear that anyone can repeat it by examining the picture. Thus, it’s another beautiful example of how great combinations of just a handful of pieces can be the best illustration of a builder’s talent.
Also be sure to check out this larger-scale version of The Ring girl we featured last Halloween.
This hilarious series of vignettes was created by Swedish character-building duo Rickard & Helen – aka SuckMyBrick. They document a unique approach to curing Zombieism called the “Van Heckling” approach, whereby zombies are rehabilitated by simply encouraging them to engaged in everyday activities! What could possibly go wrong… Let’s take a look, shall we?
There’s nothing more mundane that a little grocery shopping. Apparently one of the patients needs a bit of help getting around, though. Can’t wait to see how they get on at the checkout:
Next it’s time for some work placement. Waiting tables shouldn’t be a challenge. Hey doc’, you *might* not wanna eat that:
After a long day, why not kick back at the night club? Just avoid the off-duty zombie hunters:
But don’t even think about trying to escape rehab. The medical staff will not rest until they have you safely back in custody:

Kosmas Santosa got out of his comfort zone, due to a challenge from a friend, and built this scene of the undead coming back to life. The atmosphere he has achieved here is awesomely creepy. I give me the chills just looking at it.
