    The best place to take an early picture with all of these elements is in Royal Flush Plaza, by the magazine vending hut in front of The Man's Sport. For additional reference, I am talking about the MMA/Sporting store near the Safety Room entrance. Some of the magazine dispensers will have an image of a woman's underboobs plastered on the front page. What you want to do is get a picture of several dead zombies (horror), a few living ones with scissors- that you can acquire on the magazine stand or in the safety room- (brutality element) stuck in them, and a clear shot of this provocative magazine cover (erotica)... I also had a Zombie mask (found in on one of the still standing zombies for added Outtake effect, although I haven't tested if this was necessary.

    Please leave any feedback/criticisms in comments as this is my first solution and I'm not very familiar with this....

    vSullyHad to search the net- zombie mask is in stylin toddlers near the kiosk. And it's needed. Might want to update the solution.

    A decent place for this one is in the Uranus Zone.

    Across from Jump Space 7, you will find a souvenir kiosk that houses 4 Alien Probes. Pick up 1 or 2 of these and exit the kiosk.

    Next to the kiosk is a giant "whack-a-mole" game called Molemen From Uranus. Walk onto the "game" and drop your Alien Probes next to the mole hills near the barrier. Kill a couple of zombies next to the barrier and move back, pull up the camera - making sure to get the Molemen, the Probes, a few zombies and a few dead zombies in the picture - and take the shot. You will get an Outtake from the Molemen, Eroctica from the Probes, Horror from the zombies and Brutality from the blood/dead zombies.

    zzUrbanSpacemanI have changed my vote to positive because you have been responsive and helpful, and I don't think that deserves the punishment of a negative vote.

    Crimson RidleyOh, thank you! That's very kind of you. Have you managed to unlock the achievement yet?

    zzUrbanSpacemanOh yes, I unlocked it a while ago, I just wondered why this particular solution didn't work as it was the one I tried first.

    On that note I think I've worked it out. Whether you get brutality on a corpse seems to depends on how the zombie was killed. If you just whack it with a bat it will only give you horror, but if you dismember it somehow then it will give brutality. At least, that's how it seems to work given my brief testing.

    I got this one in Sandbox Mode. Everything needed can be found on the Silver Strip.

    First, grab a couple of masks. There's a goblin mask at the workbench next to the pawnshop, and a Serve-Bot mask near the Yucatan Casino by the bike trailer; it's sitting in some shrubbery.

    Make a Heliblade (toy helicopter + machete) at a workbench. Grab a machete from a flowerbed in front of Pub O'Gold. There's a toy helicopter right next to the concert stage adjacent to Pub O'Gold. Combine the two at the workbench behind the concert stage.

    Head over to Hot Excitorama (just down from the pub). Go inside and shut the door. Remove the mannequins from the window so the view to the street isn't obstructed.

    Pile up some massagers in the middle of the floor.

    Open the door, and place the masks on a couple of zombies in front of the store. Go back in the store, and activate the Heliblade (by holding down X) just inside the door.

    Run to the back of the store and get ready to take the picture (LT + RB). Make sure the massagers are in the shot. By now, some zombies should have been attracted to the Heliblade; when they start getting beheaded, take the picture by pressing X.

    If you did it right, you should get all four elements in the shot:

    - Horror (zombies)
    - Brutality (zombies getting beheaded)
    - Erotica (massagers)
    - Outtake (zombies wearing masks)

    Another way to get Brutality is to use Dyna-Meat instead of the Heliblade. Toss the Dyna-Meat in front of the store, and take the picture the instant the explosion goes off. To avoid killing the mask-wearing zombies in the blast get a couple of zombies to follow you into the store and then put the masks on them; then, toss the Dyna-Meat outside.

    Dyna-Meat (zombie hand + dynamite) can be made at the workbench next to the Atlantica Casino.
