Vincent Price. Boris Karloff. Vampiria. Hammer Horror. Mario Bava. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The Nightmare Before Christmas. These things and more are what remind me of October, of All-Hallow’s-Eve. Halloween has always been a favorite time of year for me, and I will be celebrating October’s fiendish offerings all month-long at the Catalogue of Curiosities.
Be on the look out for another installment of Halftone Horrors, full of great covers and pages from vintage comic books, reviews of all manner of morbid movies, horror film posters, and my own horror/Halloween-themed illustrations.
As with the past years, I’ll be a part of the growing list of blogs contributing to the amazing compendium that is the Countdown to Halloween. The list grows quickly every year, and the amount of great fun to be had is staggering. Don’t forget to check out my tumblr page as well for more spooky imagery to get you in the mood for Halloween.
I will also be in a gallery show later this month, and although it is not Halloween-themed, my particular piece will certainly be. Stay-tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, check out my review of one of the strangest horror movies of all time, Spider Baby, Or The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968).
