Published Oct 09, 2015Halloween is fast approaching, and many are in the middle of getting their yearly horror movie binge out of their systems. For some, though, there's nothing more horrifying than the concept of industrialist-turned-TV personality-turned Republican party hopeful Donald Trump becoming the president of the United States in 2016. Fittingly, these two trains of thought are now converging via a trending visual mash-up placing Trump's mug into some of cinema's scariest moments.
Through a Design Crowd page titled "Donald Trump Photoshopped Into Famous Horror Movie Scenes," you can find a series of comically re-envisioned images that cast Trump into classic scenes. For instance, you'll find the guy in a fully sacrilegious position as Reagan from The Exorcist, going head to head with Freddy Krueger, and screaming through the split of an axe-torn door as if he were The Shining's Jack Torrance.
As you'll see down below, there are also allusions to Child's Play, Scream, An American Werewolf in London, Psycho and more.
Of particular note, one pic casts Trump as Alien's Bishop, a cold-and-calculating android lurking in our midst, while another dumps his head above the shoulders of tiny Omen antichrist, Damien. Perhaps it should be pointed out that the latter horror franchise character ran for office, after becoming a successful businessman, in Omen III: The Final Conflict. A chilling parallel, indeed.
