That's legitimately disturbing. Motion Portrait is apparently the software used to make it, and can create moving 3D faces from still photos. I'm browsing through some youtube content right now, and it's impressive.

Why do you hate me?

If you look closely at the mouth, you can see that it's actually a baby wearing a clown. Not a clown costume, but a hollowed out clown. This is why you should never let babies near meat, especially the brightly colored variety.

This is actually porn. What we can't see is the invisible priest.

Can't sleep, clown will spit up on me.

Aww, he wants to feed on his first meat product. Isn't that adorable?

I used to make noises exactly like that when I was a kid.

If they make another Chucky movie using this technology, the world will surely end.

Then again, if they make another Chucky movie at all, the world deserves to end.

I suddenly do not fear death, for it means leaving this baby behind. Unless it also gets sent to Hell.

It looked like a real baby wearing clown makeup. I didn't get an uncanny valley vibe at all.

Clown baby reminded me of maggot man robot.

National Lampoon's Silent Hill Vacation, starring Chucky and his drinking buddy, the horrible meat baby.

Uuuum Like that wasn't all kinds of sick and stuff.

The Ju-on death-rattle makes everything fifty times more terrifying. If you played that sound over a picture of a watermelon I'd never eat one ever again.

I couldn't get Hige-chen to work. I found Hair Try and Virtual Preview for male and female hair styles respectively. Both sites are in Japanese (I think) but fairly easy to navigate despite.
