The Art of Darkness

Hour of the Link Dump

The Haunting of Netflix House 2 – Roundup of spooky movies to stream. (Hat tip to hng23)

Ghostbusters 3 is Official – Paul Feig (director of Bridesmaids) and Katie Dippold (writer of The Heat) are teaming up to do a new sequel starring “hilarious women.” If Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig aren’t in it I will eat my hat. And not the hat made of lunchmeat that I keep around for such occasions. My real hat.

Gourdy – “The world’s first Jack-i-lantern.” Open-source code and instructions for creating an interactive “magic pumpkin.”

Dexter Tablecloth and Cocktail – Even if you aren’t a fan of the series, the blood-spattered tablecloth and toe-tag drink straws are great for other party themes.

Kraken Umbrella – Despite the big Kraken Rum logos on the outside of this umbrella, I want it just for the tentacle handle. (Hat tip to Kaitlin Michell)

Secret Lobster Claws – The wonderful Tragedy Series will have all tragedies collected in book form, plus a lot of other print-exclusive material.

Delightfully Twisted Porcelain Sculptures – Sculptures by Maria Rubinke combine cute little kids with creepy, surreal imagery.

Twin Peaks Returns – A nine-episode series is planned for 2016. It will continue where the original left off.

Lilith – Unsettling sculpture on display at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

Spooky “Monster High” Parties – More than a little too cutesy for my taste, but there are a few useful ideas for kid-friendly Halloween parties. (Here’s another witch-themed party.)

    Oooh, I love the list-of-scary-movies. It’d be fun to put some of the classics up (maybe with no sound) in the background of a Hallowe’en party!

    I love—but am not surprised—that you keep a meat hat around.

    You know, you could probably paint the outside of that umbrella (black? Or prime it and do your own thing) and then remove it, flip it, and have the inside-octopus visible, instead of the corporate-logos. Or just remove it and replace it with lace to have a nice steampunky (why are tentacles steampunky? Is it some latent hentai kind of thing?) parasol.

    The price on that umbrella is so good I’d flip the print or recover. Its the handle that makes it.
