A young husband and wife on summer vacation rent a house in a small town called Willow,Maine,
only to be warned repeatedly (if vaguely) to leave by the local
inhabitants. They do not comply and, having purchased groceries, return
to the house. They never learn the price for prosperity the citizens of
Willow must pay: every seven years a husband and wife will go there from
outside and will stay, despite protests, to become sacrifices during
the rainy season. When the "rain" starts, the couple learns the nature
of the precipitation: an army of grotesque black toads the size of
footballs, armed with needle-sharp teeth and able to chew through doors
( as you can see the toads aren't black nor football sized, but they were fun to make)
(Sheridan, a gambling addict, has taken to abducting children for a
man known as Mr. Wizard in order to pay off his enormous debts to a
mobster who has threatened Sheridan with grievous bodily harm; Wizard
has told Sheridan only that the children go "on a boat ride" (implicitly
for human trafficking
overseas), and Sheridan wants no further information. While lurking in a
mall parking lot in his modified van, Sheridan spots his newest
probable target of opportunity - a child standing near the entrance,
obviously separated from his parents and distressed. Sheridan approaches
him, convincing him that he has seen the child's Popsy (as the boy
After luring him into the van, Sheridan handcuffs him and drives off
to make his delivery. On his way to the drop-off point, the boy shows
unusual strength, biting the main character hard enough to leave two
deep marks on his hand, as well as nearly ripping out the steel bar he
is handcuffed to. In addition to these demonstrations of strength, the
boy makes odd comments about his Popsy, such as his ability to find him
and his ability to fly. By the time they are nearing their destination,
night has fallen, and Sheridan sees an odd shape swoop by. The boy
claims this is his Popsy, and although Sheridan doesn't immediately
believe it, he becomes nervous. Moments later, a wing covers the
windshield and the door is ripped off, revealing a horrific, bat-like
creature which slits Sheridan's throat and feeds the blood to the child.)
Helena invited/created some grotesque creatures from the Mist...
I talked about creating a witch's dress the other day and here it is:
Helena was going to post her paper dress tonight too, but she didn't finish it in time.
we'll do that next week.
by the time we're done, there should be a witch wardrobe all set and ready.
I haven't been very active on my blog but I have been busy creating art.
these will be listed in my shop soon.
There is a lot of Halloween displayed in stores, finally!
We bought the DVD again because ours was so old already.
the other stuff is just extra fun I like having around..
I don't even care for oreos anymore.
These are pretty creepy, they aren't real but I thought the idea was very cool.
I for sure wouldn't eat these, yuck.
I probably wouldn't even be able to handle them being in the house!! haha!
I have two very short stories for you tonight..
When my cousin was about 3 she lived with her parents on a few acres of land in a rural part of town.
The neighborhood was desolate..maybe five occupied houses on that whole block.
It was quiet and lonely.
The lack of street lights made it so that when the sun went down it was completely scary.
There always seemed to be something odd about being there.
unexplained noises and a feeling of unease made visiting the house uncomfortable.
One night after everyone was asleep my aunt sat on the sofa to fold laundry and
watch a bit of TV before bed, out of the corner of her eye she saw my cousin
trying to sneak passed the sofa,
it was very late, so she asked
"where do you think you're going"?
When she turned to look directly at her, she was gone..
my aunt got up and went around the sofa to lead her back to bed, thinking she had
tried to hide by crouching down, but there was no one in the room with her.
after checking the bed room she found the child deep asleep in her bed.
This next event happened about a year later.
My uncle worked at an office furniture warehouse and sometimes
(much to my aunt's dismay) he would bring home old furniture and try to use it in their home.
He brought home a huge filing cabinet and put it in the bedroom to use as a dresser.
It was very difficult to open because it was at least five & a half feet tall and very wide..
being metal, it was extremely heavy.
One day, he was ready to leave for work but could not find his keys.
My aunt helped him search for about fifteen minutes, but they had absolutely no luck.
He couldn't understand where they could be, as he had placed them on the key hook by the door
like he always did.
My cousin, who was four at this time was just waking up and they asked her if she had any idea
where the keys could be.
She said she did,
then led them into their bedroom and pointed to the very top drawer in the humongous cabinet.
My aunt opened the drawer but did not see them, after moving several piles of neatly folded
shirts out of the way, they found the keys.
The drawer was too high and too heavy for my cousin to open, plus, like some filing cabinets
you had to shift over a little lever to get the thing to slide open.
They were very confused and asked her how she knew they were in there.
She told them it was a werewolf. She saw him hide them in there last night before she fell asleep.
What do you think?
Well, that's all for now.
I hope you have a spooky week.
Next Haunted Humpday is VERY special.
It's Stephen King's Birthday and I hope you stop by to help us celebrate!!
