To avoid fainting, keep repeating 'It's only a movie...It's only a movie...'

If you're like me and you've watched a ton of crime shows, you'll know that blood never truly washes away.

Photographer Angela Strassheim proves this freaky fact in her incredible murder scene photos.

Strassheim uses a solution that shows up blood, even years later.

The effect is these breathtaking crime scene photos.

Strassheim questions the ordinariness of murder with her art: 'Could we be a victim of violence or perform an act of violence against a loved one?'

The white may be less gory than red, but the pale, luminescent bloodstains are a creepy reminder of a violent past...

Strassheim says her photos remind her of 'our immense capacity to feel jealousy, anger, rage, and desperation in a moment of extreme emotion.'

As a movie fan - and as someone with a deep interest in what makes people do what they do, I think these photos are incredible.
