The spooktacular spooktacular
It is spooktacular
It is that time of the year again when the ghosts look at the people wearing sheets and think, what the absolute F are these weirdos doing? I also know Halloween isn’t for everybody and if you don’t like creepy/scary stuff then this email probably isn’t going to be your favourite. I have left the Halloween AF3 book cover at the bottom though and some outtake pages which are more funny than spooky so go check those out. Now let’s get spooktacular.
This film is creepy as hell. It is weirdly uneventful but even after all these years, it remains up there as one of my favourite horror films. It is such a basic premise and it doesn’t rely on jump scares just tension on top of more tension.
There is this movie called vvitch which I need to rewatch before I can recommend it, however, the soundtrack is top-of-the-line.
This Instagram page right here is damn creepy. Unfortunately, I found it at the end of my Halloween zine making but it is top of the list inspiration for next year.
I don’t care if they’re fake or low quality but ghosts caught on camera videos will forever be my top scare. I don’t even know why they just seem to always manage to give me the spooks even when it is terribly done and obviously fake. Anyway, this was the latest one I watched so have at it.
This one is totally jacked from Tyler Knott Gregson who sent it to me yesterday morning and it might appear in one of his newsletters because it is mad scary but sort of dope too! He also wouldn’t buy me a twenty-five million dollar t-rex skeleton so if you speak to him make sure you mention how unfair that is. Here is the twitter thread, it is either incredibly spooky or incredibly spooky fiction, you decide. HERE
This is a poem about a creature called the windigo and scary fact: Windigo is also a psychiatric condition that has been observed in some cultures in which afflicted patients believe they are, in fact, possessed by the windigo, and begin to see the people around them as edible. Below are some outtakes from Halloween AF3 which will be out October 30th! Plus the cover.
I feel the proportions of this one were off and the arm was a little weird and I couldn’t quite make it work. I still think it is kind of funny but it didn’t make the book for these reasons.
I actually have no idea why this one didn’t make it in.
This is one of my favourites but it just didn’t match the vibe I was going for in the zine. I am going to be doing a lot of drawing going forward and I imagine this won’t be the last time you see ‘the so spooky crew’.
I do really wish I planned more and released this one as a physical release because it is my favourite thing so far. It is square again and full colour and spooky and funny. I think you are going to love it. See you on the weekend for the drop. Share your spooktacular finds in the comments if you have any and HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Stay spooky out there.
