Pumpkin carving doesn’t just involve tiny knives with orange handles anymore. Some people get very serious about it, using dremels, exacto-knives and scraping tools I’ve never seen before. Here are some of the ones I’ve been very impressed with this year from around the interwebs.

Miguel Cabrera pumpkin

The Joker pumpkin

Ghostbusters pumpkin

Borderlands pumpkin

It would’ve been cool if they had taken pumpkin entrails to make it more 3D

Michael Jackson Thriller zombie pumpkin

The Joker pumpkin

Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?


Predator pumpkin

Dark Knight Rises Bane pumpkin

One of my personal favorites, given the thoughtfulness of the back carving as well.


Ron Swanson pumpkin
