List Rules Vote up the creepiest modern interpretations of Greek mythology.

Throughout history, artists like Rembrandt, Caravaggio, and Boticelli, among numerous others, have looked to Greek myths for inspiration, creating paintings that depict scenes from these timeless tales. But while these classic artists mostly painted in a realistic style and emphasized beauty, more modern takes revel in the darker, weirder side of these Greek mythology stories, crafting creepy and even disturbing images. The following creations, culled from Reddit, DeviantArt, and other sources, represent this latter, decidedly more wicked take on the myths.
