Default October Monthly Challenge - "Thriller"

In keeping with the Halloween season, I pick "thriller" as the new subject for October. Any image that depicts thrills.

The usual rules apply, a Pentax interchangeable lens camera must be used on an image from the last 90 days and resized to 800 pixels on the long side.

I would like to suggest we leave this challenge open through Nov. 1 so Halloween shots can be included. This could be fun.

Real life is, at times, scarier than the movies. This (drunk?) man interrupted a street performer in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The performer shouted for police until the man stumbled off.

EDIT: For a little bit of added context. Here is another photo in the series just prior to the one I previously posted. It shows the street performer instructing the audience member for a portion of the routine and the man approaching the performance and beginning to interject himself.

Well, I am always thrilled to see these cute little Golden Garden Spiders, but some folks don't find spiders thrilling...

Obviously some post processing done here!! The background shot was taken last week at Kiawah Island in South Carolina. The gator was added from another shot also from Kiawah, but taken a year ago. If you feel the addition disqualifies the shot feel free to say so. Both shots taken with the DL and the Pentax 50-200 lens.

It's probably out of bounds, but I don't care. That is a seriously creepy shot.

Do I get bonus points because the subject of mine looks like he could be doing dance moves from the video for Thriller? lol
