When I was growing up, my children's books consisted of Creepy, Eerie, Fangoria, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and The Savage Sword of Conan. Yep, I grew up kind of strange, but hey, if someone would have shown me these, I wouldn't have argued at all!
A few days ago we showed you 25 Spectacular Movie Cakes for Horror Fans, and now we are back with another boatload of culinary chillers made by horror fans for horror fans! Eat 'em up!
Few films tickle our fancy more around these parts than C.H.U.D. There's never a wrong time to watch it, reference it, or wonder what the hell was up with its sequel. The flick just doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

Growing up, at one time or another you had to have been exposed to some beautiful ceramic works of arts from someone in your family. It's nearly impossible to have avoided these things. Thankfully artist Jessica Harrison has hit this medium head on with lots of style...
Never mind paper folding a tiny boat or a Pterodactyl - that's just child's play (although we do admit that anything featuring a Pterodactyl is pretty damned cool). Now this? This is what we're talking about! Your favorite haunted houses in paper form!
While cruising the Internet (we do that a lot in between working like dogs and appreciating kitten and puppy videos), we have a tendency to explore the darker side of the world weird web. It was during these wondrous moments that we came across the following...
1988's Scrooged may be more comedy than horror, but since we're all big fans of its source material here at Dread Central, we wanted to let you know about a special 25th Anniversary print that's available TODAY!
As horror photographers go, Joshua Hoffine might very well be the best there is. His intricate sets and chilling imagery have made for a slew of amazing shots. But he’s got another idea in mind, a short film entitled Black Lullaby.
It's taken us awhile to get to this story because to be honest with you, it's kind of hard to type with your jaw lying firmly on the floor. Seriously... you just have to see this most beautiful thing. I may have peed a little.
