10. Five Characters in Search of an Exit
It sounds like the start of a bad joke: an army major wakes up in a metal cylinder and meets a hobo, a ballet dancer, a bagpiper, and a clown. Things are never quite as they seem in The Twilight Zone, and there aren’t a lot of laughs to be found in this premise.
Instead, these five characters trapped in a strange tube seek to not only escape, but also figure out where they are. The results are as surprising as you’d expect given the history of the show. This was season three’s Christmas episode, but hardly filled with mirth and good cheer. It did inspire Vincenzo Natali’s cult classic film Cube
9. It’s A Good Life
The fantasy of every child — to have unlimited power against grown-ups — is made horrifyingly real in 1961’s “It’s a Good Life.” Bill Mumy plays six-year-old Anthony Freemont, a boy with incredible psychic powers who holds everyone around him hostage. It’s sort of like Game of Thrones, if little King Joffrey could simply think you out of existence for displeasing him. The adults tiptoe around the kid, but it never really matters, because he’s six, and six-year-olds aren’t particularly rational in the first place. That ever-present sense of menace exuded from the adorable face of Mumy is what makes things work. Like “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” the episode was remade for the Twilight Zone movie. It also got a sequel in the 2002 Twilight Zone revival series, entitled “It’s Still a Good Life,” wherein Anthony is now a grown-up and his daughter has inherited his abilities. Bill Mumy and Chloris Leachman reprise their original roles, and Mumy’s real-life daughter serves as the story’s new tyrant.
10. Rey Misterio Jr. vs. Eddy Guerrero, Halloween Havoc 97
Rey Mysterio had defeated Eddie Guerrero on two separate occasions prior to this. Guerrero’s frustration had caused him to try to rip of Rey’s mask, which led to this legendary title vs mask bout at Halloween Havoc. This match is borderline perfect, I mean really the moves are almost pulled off flawlessly. These are not just hip tosses and head locks too, I mean crazy corkscrew spins, backflips and hurricarana’s out the ass. One can really see that these two were on point when Rey Mysterio hits the fanciest DDT of all time. This is no spot fest though, it is paced very well and Guerrero orchestrates like the virtuoso that he is. Guerrero stretches and beats down Rey Mysterio through out the match. Rey keeps trying to hit Guerrero with big high flying moves, but the champ is just too sly for that. It’s interesting to see when Guerrero finally starts losing his concentration, it is subtle and not over acted like you would see in many other matches. Anyone who loves Jr Heavyweight action needs to see this one.
Doomsday was created and evolved through cloning an infant and having it killed over and over again in one of the harshest habitats in existence, prehistoric Krypton. In other words, he was bred to be nasty.
Many may complain that Doomsday was a marketing ploy but you gotta give him his due becasue he did kill Superman and killing the Man of Steel has to count for something. If you are a one-trick pony, killing the greatest superhero in comic book history is certainly a good place to start. He also defeated the entire Just League, with one arm literally tied behind his back, before killing Superman.
Most heinous crime: He killed Superman.

Attack On Titan
People live behind mountain high walls, because on the outside there are hulking; lumbering giants that look like skinless humans called Titans. They breach the wall, and a splatter fest of violence erupts. The only defenses are crews of swordsman that use Bat Grapples and zip line to high altitude to conduct sky scraper murder battles. The animation is frightening and the action is beyond intense. It is unfinished at the moment, but since one of the series writers is from “Berserk”, you know the story will just get deeper and darker.
10 . Eating Through Anything – Matter Eater Lad
Alright, so it might be neat to be able to eat anything without consequence — those late night Taco Bell trips would be a lot easier, for one. But when would you ever really have to eat through a wall though? Maybe if you’re a superhero, but it just seems like it’d be a funny thing to watch. Especially when one stops to consider the truism that what must go in must come out. Not to mention, he wasn’t a cannibal — there goes any chance of using his powers to beat up the bad guys.
Uncharted 2: Fortune Hunter Edition – Price: $4,990
While Uncharted 2 is not a particularly rare game itself (in fact, it is one of the most popular and highly praised games available on the PlayStation 3), there is a certain edition of the title that has proved elusive for collectors. This was completely by design though, as Sony decided that for their limited edition version of the game, it really should be limited rather than just a more expensive bundle. The company only created 200 copies of the Fortune Hunter Edition and gave them out randomly to players who had spent some time on the official demo during selected weekends. Copies can sell for anywhere between $8,000 and $12,000 and come with the game, as well as an official art book and game guide along with a replica dagger.

Sometimes, even the Mafia needs a little extra assistance. When things get messy, the notorious criminal organization has an utterly ruthless and deranged clean-up crew of paid assassins on standby. Whether they need to violently send out a message, or subtly whack a rival with minimum repercussions, the Mob can turn to any number of cold-blooded career professionals. These contract killers are a law enforcement officer’s nightmare – and case studies for criminal justice experts.
It’s an odd profession, killing for a living. Career prerequisites include ruthlessness, aggression, and an icy sense of emotional detachment. And if the cases that follow are anything to go by, some kind of psychological imbalance probably helps as well. The infamous killers on this list plied their trade with the kind of fervor and dedication that might have earned them a golden handshake had their chosen careers been above board. Read on for the 10 most dangerous mafia hitmen in history.
10. ABE “KID TWIST” RELES
Abe Reles was a natural born killer. He was a violent and unpredictable man and an early member of the charmingly named Murder, Inc. This was a notorious “enforcement arm” of the American and Jewish Mafia believed to have killed up to 1,000 people during the 1930s and ‘40s.
Reles was renowned for using an ice pick on his victims, which he would ram into their brains through their ears. Even day-to-day he was unstable and would sometimes attack innocent bystanders; he once murdered a parking lot employee for not bringing his vehicle up fast enough.
This notorious hitman was arrested in 1940, but despite being implicated in “dozens” of killings, he was able to wriggle out of the death penalty by ratting on his boss Louis Buchalter and other key members of Murder, Inc.
Informing didn’t work out well for Reles, though: he was found dead on the pavement outside his hotel room on November 12, 1941. The press called him “the canary who could sing, but couldn’t fly.”
