If you can't make it to any haunted houses this year, these photos ought to satisfy your curiosity for gore. Photos from Flickr users Zombie37, fetusflusher, ScareFX, piratejohnny, DrgnMstr, Josh Sommers, sniderscion, and texas lady bug29.
Implications - I'm actually quite impressed with the lengths people are willing to go for a good fright. There's pictures of mutilated cadavers, eerily lit corridors, zombies poking out of graves and much more. I think Hollywood horror films need to take a cue from these guys.
