20 Panorama Photography Fails That Unleashed Hell’s Most Abominable Demons

Taking a panoramic photo is undoubtedly an exercise in patience, but at least half the time, the result comes out looking something close to a breathtakingly wide-angle shot of a beautiful landscape. The rest of the time? Yeah, you’re probably going to inadvertently slice off your dog’s head or turn your baby into some kind of freakish human centipede. Fair warning: these horrific panorama attempts may scar your very soul.

The canine-based follow-up to The Elephant Man didn’t perform quite as well at the box office as its iconic predecessor. Probably something to do with how its protagonist looked to have recently emerged from the seventh layer of hell.

Well, we’re not sleeping tonight. Or ever again, really. Yes, there are some things in life you just can’t unsee, and this horrifying creature is right up there with the most mentally scarring of them all. The goat is pretty scary, too. (Joke!)

This is what happens when you can’t stand still for more than a few seconds. Then again, judging by the expression on her face, it looks like she may well be mid-sneeze, in which case, we guess it’s forgivable. Right up until she starts haunting our nightmares, that is.

Witness the rare, long-armed gorilla man in his natural habitat. Presumably fresh from some kind of twisted lab experiment, he’s living proof of the consequences of playing God. Sometimes, science truly goes too far.

We’re getting some vivid, unsettling flashbacks to The Human Centipede here. Yes, as if that film wasn’t already the sort of thing you wish you could completely flush from memory, here’s a baby bringing it all back in horrific fashion. Take better care with your panoramas, parents.

Unfortunately, Fluffy the three-headed dog wasn’t quite so intimidating in the low-budget Harry Potter reboot. The fact the producers managed to find a real-life three-headed animal has to be commended, though. Even if it is terrifying.

Sure, this might well be the world’s fluffiest cat-erpillar. But we only have to look at it through the lens of a camera. Indeed, if you walked into your front room to find this guy skulking across your floor, with his many legs in tow, you’d probably freak out all the same.

No matter how perfect the setup for your panoramic shot is, there’s just no accounting for animals running in front of your camera. Take this dog, for instance, who we’re pretty sure has run straight here from the devil’s own back door.

What, you mean you don’t have a secret third hand protruding from your chest, with which to support your head? We guess evolution must have just passed you by. This guy, on the other hand… he’s racing ahead in the survival of the fittest. Or freakiest.

To be honest, we’re not sure if this is a panorama gone wrong, or just photographic evidence of someone dumping body parts into a lake. But for the sake of our sanity, we’re going to convince ourselves that it’s the former.

This perturbing panorama has offered the answer to a question absolutely nobody was asking: what happens when you cross a human with a giraffe? The results, unfortunately, are even more shocking than we could ever have imagined. We’ll file this one away under evolutionary mistakes, then.

The key to taking a good panoramic picture is keeping still. Indeed, having a little bit of patience can be the difference between an awesome shot of an entire landscape and a budget version of Attack of the Clones.

Whoever was taking this picture may have wanted to tell their subject to quit horsing around. Or, y’know, maybe they shouldn’t have bothered trying to take a panoramic photo of a moving object in the first place. That’s the best way we know to avoid a disaster like this, anyway.

Have you ever wanted to see how you look from behind? Clearly, this woman has, and she’s decided to go one step further by decapitating herself to do just that. Well, desperate times and all that. She’ll probably want to get her apparent lack of feet checked out, though…

The longer you stare at this photo, the weirder it gets. Indeed, this horrifically entangled ensemble resembles a haphazardly assembled jigsaw more than a photograph of any kind, panoramic or not. Next time, maybe just ask everyone to bunch in closer and take a normal picture. They do still exist, after all.

At first glance, it almost seems like this cat’s just got a bit of a swagger as he marches down the street. But then you realize just how freakish this scene actually is, and the fact that half his body has seemingly vanished into thin air. Thin, terrifying air.

What fresh hell is this? The mafia needn’t bother putting horse heads on pillows any more: all they need to do is show their victims this picture and they’ll never step a foot out of line again. Just imagine seeing this trotting down the road!

You have to wonder whether this is how Doctor Who writers come up with the show’s villains. After all, this pooch looks exactly like the sort of weird, hellish creature that would plague the Time Lord. Just familiar enough to be recognizable, but just different enough to make you hide behind the couch cushions.

Some people take gymnastics way too seriously. Take this girl, for instance, who’s even gone to the trouble of elongating her spine to be able to perform complex maneuvers with ease. Well, either that or she’s just in a badly taken panoramic photo. The jury’s still out.

Is this the long-awaited remake of The Day After Tomorrow? Or perhaps an Inception sequel? No, it’s just a panorama photo gone horribly wrong. At least, we sure hope it is; otherwise, we’re all in for a very rough time.
