Actress Bijou Phillips is gracing the spread of the Spanish magazine DL and she looks like she's not taking any prisoners.

The seductive blonde, who is yet to become a household name, is captured laying and kneeling on a bed while brandishing a chef's knife and looking straight ahead at her “audience” in a menacing way.

A caption on the magazine says, "Belleza letal," which means “lethal beauty.” That sure explains the violence-themed spread!

Implications - Shock tactics are certainly not a new way of attracting audience attention, but they are definitely a proven method of gaining mass appeal. Consumers are constantly looking for the latest in revolutionary items and ideas -- and scare tactics are a great example of this notion. Businesses can benefit from using this method, which has proven to be successful time and time again.
