The Horror

October has arrived once again, and as autumn’s chill makes its graceful entrance, a young man’s fancy turns to… the macabre. I’m something of a Halloween fanatic, which is a great comfort when the transition into fall would otherwise find me irritated by the loss of warm temperatures and extended daylight. So, with nature in its gorgeous death throes all around me, I fill my Octobers with all things horrific, and this year, even my site is getting in on the action.

In homage to cinema’s earliest horror classics, for this month only, RobWeychert.com looks how it might have appeared through the eyes of Max Schreck, if he had wanted to check his RSS feeds from the set of Nosferatu in 1922. (You may need to empty your browser’s cache and refresh the page to see the full effect.)

Some of my closest compatriots are spreading terror across the web as well. Stan’s (already noir-soaked) site has lost a good deal of blood, and InkFinger has been enslaved by some sort of hideous Cthulu bat, but the biggest news is that Kim Cornell’s Sock Monkey Drawer is now bursting at the seams with eight brand-new Spooky Sock Monkeys (my own sock monkey has even donned a costume in honor of the event). Go grab one before they’re all gone!
