Some feed back on this would be appreciated.

I was trying to re-create a Crime scene while introducing mystery of the guy in the polaroid.

The big problem to me is that he doesn't actually look scared. He looks like he's having a laugh!

An interesting and creative idea with some humour too. I would have to agree with Alda that the polaroid image doesn't fit with what I believe you are trying to create as it doest look scared or gruesome enough. Perhaps retrying this with a much more contorted face for the subject showing fear or dead!

Worth another go as its a creative shot that just needs to convey more realistically the image intent.

I like the concept, Michael, dripping blood on white tiles, with a jaunty angle. Shades of Psycho. I'm a big fan of horror. Also, I think I watch far too much of the ID channelTongue!
The image suggests to me that a crime scene investigator has taken a photograph of the blood spatter on the bathroom tiles, and the polaroid therefore doesn't fit well in my eyes.
For me, the polaroid portrait is adding humour to what could be a more serious theme. If that's your intention, then that's fine, but how about a hand holding a magnifying glass, a bit Sherlock Holmes-ish? Or there could be a sharp knife covered with blood. Alternatively, the polaroid could depict the murder weapon, as if the investigator had just taken that shot, too.
Compositionally, you could try placing the polaroid on a thirds line instead of in the middle.
Just my thoughts.

My advice?

Apply pre-shave before. Then shave the eyebrows with an electric shaver.

It hurts if you do it in the reverse order.
