I've been holding off on linking to this site for a long time, because the name is so very silly and gross. But I really enjoy Mary J. Hoffman's humorous horror art and films, and I think you will too.
The DeviantArt gallery of an artist/photographer from Spain. He calls this collection "Imagenes-Imperfectas." The photographs here are oddly unsettling - look at them more closely to find out why. My favorite here is "Honey, It's a Girl!"
This DeviantArt gallery is full of twisted illustrations: Twisted wallpaper, snapping cats, dark matter, twisted tales, and twisted monsters.
This artist lives in Brighton, England. They're inspired by Victorian medical books, old Victorian drawings and Victorian paraphernalia.
At this site you can view 3d Montages such as the one above; drawings; 3d collages; and creations made from plastic and fabric.
My Love Haunted Heart
This is a site dedicated to 1960s and 1970s era gothic romances. Half the fun here is staring at the lurid covers with their billowy fashions and creepy houses. But also, the reviews are intriguingly well written. Glad to know I'm not the only one with a soft spot for silly Victoria Holt gothic novels.
This UK-based Etsy shop sells adorably wicked little crocheted amigurumi dolls and monsters. My favorite is this evil kitty cat.
This shop sells beautiful Gothic Lolita and Visual Kei jewelry and accessories.
There are lots of skull and rose-themed items, plus unusual pieces such as this Queen of Crows Crown. I also don't run into stores that sell eye patches very often. Cool!
Kevin Bacon plays a former FBI agent who is tasked with hunting down an escaped serial killer. This is more drama than horror, but since it's about a serial killer, I thought I'd mention it here. Plus, it has really cool teaser art.
A club/venue in downtown Montreal, Quebec. It books bands who play punk, metal, black doom, psychobilly, rockabilly, electro-industrial, EBM, gothic, batcave and other alternative styles. I wouldn't go here hoping to attend a goth night, but if you're in the area looking for a show to go to, check out their upcoming gig listings.
