I’m going to share with you a few highlights and pictures of the evening. Continue reading “Delving Into The Art of Mourning with Hayden Peters”

Ghoulish Art Inspired by “Goosebumps” and “Tales from the Crypt”

Tales from the Cryptand Goosebumps BackdropR.L. Stine’s “Goosebumps” book series is probably many children’s introduction to horror. I know they were for me. And late night, spine-chilling television on HBO was once dominated by the show “Tales from the Crypt,” based on the 1950s EC Comics. Who could forget the grim mansion and maniacal laugh of the Crypt Keeper? Both initially flourished during the 1990s giving audiences an entertaining dose of scary.

As an ode to “Goosebumps” and “Tales from the Crypt,” The Mystic Museum in Burbank, California, has created an exhibit showcasing a wide range of artwork inspired by both series. I attended opening night and had a ghastly good time!  Continue reading “Ghoulish Art Inspired by “Goosebumps” and “Tales from the Crypt””
