Bag of treats

Happy All Hallow's Eve! To celebrate, here is an assortment of dark, goth, eerie, fantastic, morbid, and spooky links. Enjoy!

Blogs:

Deviled Ham is a great blog featuring all devils, all the time. Vintage art and new showing the devil in all sorts of guises.

Zombie Eat Brains is a very funny personal journal straight from the brain of a very hungry zombie with a one-track mind.

Animation:

Day Off the Dead at AtomFilms, the romantic adventures of a skeleton in the Land of the Dead.




Spook, a short, cute animation about a little ghost girl who wants her teddy bear.




Tales of the Scarecrow, a Flash animation about a kid who messes with a scarecrow and gets in a lot of trouble.




Eat Your Peas, a scary tale about a reluctant boy and a plateful of evil peas.




The Tell-Tale Heart, the 1953 animated classic retelling of Poe's tale of horror. Beautiful film.




Lenore: The Cute Little Dead Girl, a twisted series from the mind of Roman Dirge.




Neurotically Yours, an animated series about a jaded goth girl and her hyperactive some-kind-of-creature (cat? Squirrel?) sidekick.




Art:

The Monster Engine is a neat site where artist Dave Devries takes children's drawings of monsters and turns them into fully-rendered, realistic monster portraits.




The Unfortunate Animal of the Month Club is one of the cool features at Morbid Tendencies, a site chock full of dark, morbid sculptures and other art, often using ex-live things as material. For a fee, the artist will send you your very own Unfortunate Animal, a plush toy subjected to any of a number of freakish, unfortunate mutilations and metamorphoses. Personally, I like the aliens.




Games:

HALLOWEEN, a cute kids' flash game in which you must explore a haunted house and save your family, who have been turned into pumpkins. In French only.




Daelindor: The Dark Castle is a short exploration game in html format.

On a hike through the foothills of some ancient mountains on the Continent, you and your friends venture into a dark and silent forest. Quite unexpectedly, you find yourself in the midst of long-forgotten ruins - the remnants of an age-old castle.

While your friends play hide-and-seek between the broken and overgrown walls, you suddenly slip and slide down into a ravine. As you get back onto your feet, you find yourself in front of the gaping entrance to an old mine...





Virtual Curry's Haunted Castle is a Halloween-themed romp through a typical haunted house, with cheesy sound effects and all. Cute and fun.




In The Dead Case, you are a ghost who has lost his memory, and you must investigate to discover what has happened.




Cauchemars: Les aventures is another cute kids' flash game in which you are a young boy who must make it through the frightening landscape of the nightmare world. In French only.




Jinx Episode 1: "Dark and Stormy Night" is yet another very cute Halloween-themed game. You are a little kid in a ghost costume exploring a spooky mad scientist's house. The game is pretty simple, but fun.

Great post! But I want coke, not tea.

Thanks for posting the devilled ham link - last few times I'd looked there it wouldn't load so I tossed the linky. They have their niche covered!
