One year ago: Frankenstein (1931)
It's decoration time again, and we're taking a look at two of my favorites! These two are basically just larger and more elaborate versions of the muumuu heads we'll be looking at next week, but they make for some fun and often genuinely creepy decorations under the right conditions.
The Hanged Man is a suitably gruesome creature, with gnarled hands, leathery sun-bleached flesh, and the rope that did him in still wound about him. He's even missing an eyeball for good measure! He certainly doesn't look too creepy in this photo-- hell, he even comes off a little goofy-- but coming across him in the dead of night with the lights out, he's capable of producing a couple of chills.
When the sun is shining outside, she has a very cool and unsettling look, and her eyes light up as the dimmed light from outside shines through them. I tried to capture this in a photo, but without the flash, it's rather bad. I'm posting it anyway though, as you still get the general idea of the effect.
On that crappy photographic note, we're done for today! Creep on back by tomorrow for more Halloween goodness!
