As creepy as the Barnacle Ceiling Lamp is, it cannot be denied that it is extremely impressive as well. It is so realistic that it looks like the ceiling-dwelling alien from the Half-Life video game was somehow transported from virtual reality into an actual home. Although it appears to be trying to catch prey with its sticky tongue, what is mistaken for its tasting organ is the light bulb and its cord.

Created by German artist Daniel Ritthanondh, the Barnacle Ceiling Lamp looks as moist and menacing as it does in the video game. Made for a bachelor apartment, the Barnacle Ceiling Lamp would be a great piece of decor to be showcased at a terrifying Halloween party.
