Exquisite Corpse

I found no joy in gross mutilation or dismemberment, not then; it was the subtle whisper and slice of the razor that appealed to me. I liked my boys as they were, big dead dolls with an extra weeping crimson mouth or two. I would keep them with me for as much as a week, until the smell in my flat grew obvious. I did not find the odour of death unpleasant. It was rather like cut flowers left too long in stagnant water, a heavy sickish sweetness that coated the nostrils and curled into the back of the throat with every breath.

The Premature Burial

After marriage, however, this gentleman neglected, and, perhaps, even more positively ill-treated her. Having passed with him some wretched years, she died, -- at least her condition so closely resembled death as to deceive every one who saw her. She was buried -- not in a vault, but in an ordinary grave in the village of her nativity.

The Deadwood Monster

As we were leaving I looked back at the barn. In the highest window, at the top of the old building, I could make out the figure of a man. No discernible features, just the shadowy figure. I felt like he was looking directly at me.

Amazing detail on some upcoming masks from Trick or Treat Studios.  That horned elf is pure Halloween.

We really dug the latest season of American Horror Story.  One of the most enjoyable aspects was the score by Mac Quayle.  It was definitely its own unique character.

Now Playing: Spring

This film gets my highest recommendation...

(though the trailer gives away too much [so you're going to have to trust me]).
