Normally garbage bag branding is nothing to get excited about, but the 'Dexter Trash Bags' do the trick. Even though you can be sure there's nothing special about these black garbage bags, their packaging transforms an ordinary household product from innocent to disturbing. Even if you're not a fan of the show, you can probably make a morbid guess as to what Dexter puts inside of them.

Typical garbage bag boxes use bright, clean colors to make taking out the trash seem like less of a chore. These Dexter Trash Bags take the complete opposite approach and adopt an ominous black color and blood-splattered design, complete with the image of a trash bag being dumped into a body of water. Using these creepy bags seems like an effective way to get out of being assigned to take out the trash.
