The best science fiction movies are only as good as the evil corporations they feature. But what sort of websites would Weyland-Yutani or OCP have? Artist Mikko Vartio imagines their websites, with a noticeable resemblance to some real-life corporate sites.

I like evil movie corporations, and for a long time I've wanted to do a case-study of their corporate imagery. The more I looked into it, the more it seemed as though these suckers make a fine match with some real-world evil corporations. I took my Adobe Fireworks, locked myself into bunker and reverse-engineered from scratch these six detailed lookalike-mashups of evil corporations.

OCP meets Apple.

OCP is the nasty corporation from Robocop. My vision of OCP's site has some noticeable resemblance to Apple's, but that is purely a coincidence.

Rekall meets RyanAir.

Paul Verhoeven directed Robocop, but he also directed another masterpiece, called Total Recall. The evil company Rekall specializes in screwing up your brain with false memories and pseudo tourism — stuff like travelling to Mars. Here's a Rekall website modeled on travel company RyanAir's.

Weyland-Yutani meets Toyota.

Weyland-Yutani should ring a bell, from the Alien movies. Here's a Weyland-Yutani site in the style of Toyota's.

Skynet meets Bing.

Skynet has been sending robots from the future, since The Terminator. Everybody thinks that Google is the new real-life Skynet, but I'd argue the stealthy search engine Bing from Microsoft is the real evil A.I. (Plus doing a Skynet logo with Google-colors would be way too easy).

Cyberdyne meets Microsoft.

When there is Skynet, there is also Cyberdyne. So here's a Cyberdyne site in the style of Microsoft's home page.

Tyrell meets RealDoll.

Blade Runner is a classic movie, where Han Solo shoots robots. While the evil corporation Tyrell produces too-realistic Replicants, our real-world equivalent RealDoll (website is NSFW) does the same with evil sexdolls.
