    Classic horror images

    I think I posted a link to these a few years back, but why not do it again? At my job I use Istock stock photography a lot, and they have a gallery of CSA images that look to be mostly from old horror mags and paperbacks. Even more interesting is the occasional image from the smock of an old Ben Cooper or Collegeville Halloween costume, and even some movie poster swipes, like the Dunwich Horror!

    If you look up Halloween, Vampire, Werwolf, Monster and other related subjects in the gallery, you get a few more images as well. A fun little Halloween exercise!

    Those are tons of fun!!! The stranger they are the more I liked them- Satan in a jar, the giant space cat... I especially loved the racing monsters. They had a real Big Daddy Roth knock-off vibe. Thanks for fun time suck.

    Fun indeed--wonderfully garish without being too gruesome. I was amused by the swipes, and I'm always pleased to see the Dunwich Horror. (I like the soundtrack to that film, too.)

    Those are nifty. Thanks for sharing.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...
