The scariest Friday the 13th EVER

This Friday just sit back but DON'T turn your television on: what you will see is far more unsettling than any horror film you've seen in your life, and it could haunt you forever!

Do you feel screaming, jumping around or just running away from this planet as the most reactionary and dangerous president in the history of the US will be in London on Friday, the 13th? Well, you are not alone.What’s about to happen this week is far scarier than Jason Vorhees, Freddy Krueger, Chucky and the grim reaper put together. Worst of all, it’s extremely real.

So Australian enterprise DesignCrowd – which describes itself as “the online marketplace for online services” – had a brilliant idea. they invited their users to come up with their own hair-raising and blood-curling interpretation of the freaky President-elect of the US in a horror movie, and the result couldn’t be more terrifying. The company had previously done a series called Politicians in Horror Movie Scenes, so the Donald Trump extension was just natural (and very necessary)!

Jo Sabin, Head of Community, Content, Communications at DesignCrowd, told DMovies: “We’ve run some super successful contests that have gone viral including politicians with man buns, Pokemon in classic movie scenes, and actors as hipsters, and this was definitely up there as one of the most popular. We were able to showcase how you can generate a huge variety of quality ideas from one simple design brief, in this case: What would Donald Trump look like in a Horror Movie?”

She also explains that there was no shortage of contestants and bright scary ideas: “the contest received more than 120 designs from designers all over the world and is one of our most successful in terms of reach and engagement.”

Check out our 10 picks below. And remember to flicker with caution: this is your worst nightmare come true!

This piece was originally entitled “Friday the 20th is the new Friday the 13th”, and was published on Trump’s Inauguration on January 20th, 2017. It has been republished under a new title for the occasion of Trump’s visit to London on Friday the 13th (in July 2018).
