Drilled to death by XxBirtaxX Drilled to death by XxBirtaxX
Fake blood!

Inspired by the movie Hostel and a song by Radiohead, Subterranean Homesick Alien

Of all these weird creatures
Who lock up their spirits
Drill holes in themselves
And live for their secrets

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-26
Drilled to death by ~XxBirtaxX's concept is expressed effectively through juxtaposition and I love the surprisingly bright contrasting colours which lift the picture from murky horror to vivid nightmare. ( Suggested by XenoPhotography and Featured by TanyaSimoneSimpson )

Your wonderful piece of work has been featured in Project Educate: A, B, C's of Horror Photography A-E to help personify the idea of being "Careful". Thank you for having such excellent work!

i like the retrogarde colors, and i like the idea (not that i would kill anyone) but it's almost like a movie capture/preview. only thing though, i think in perspective she should have more blood and shredded skin, spatter in fine, scattered patterns to be in perspective with the drilling that went into her head. just my opinion. but yeah, this work is brilliant!! she looks a bit like my friend ashley too :D

Oh dear god. I just got some cavities filled today, and they use little baby drills, and you just made me remember the sound of them drilling into me. So, you've succeeded in thoroughly creeping me out. :D
