Extreme Pumpkin Carving Makes Halloween Edgy Again

Extreme pumpkin carving might not sound as intense as the envelope-pushing activities of tatted and pierced Gen-X daredevils usually called "extreme." But compared to "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," it's still pretty edgy.

In extreme pumpkin carving, the perfect jack-o'-lantern is achieved using tools such as jigsaws, road flares and lighter fluid. Michigan man Tom Nardone is the leading practitioner of this dark art, and we've rounded up some videos of Nardone, and others, doing their hardcore Halloween thing.
