We’re celebrating Halloween with this spooky illustration, created for us by the talented Danger Dom.
Some of you have already spotted the references to classic horror stories in the image. If you want to test your gothic knowledge, send us a tweet with your guesses. Otherwise…SPOILER ALERT…the answers are below.
Hightail’s Halloween illustration references
- Silver bullets – The Howling (werewolf story)
- Chains – A Christmas Carol (not strictly a horror story, but it does feature a lot of ghosts)
- Feather – The Raven
- Screw – The Turn of the Screw (yes, it’s a cheesy reference)
- Ring – The Jewel of the Seven Stars (Egyptian mummy story)
- Bolts – Frankenstein
- Locust – The Abomonible Dr Phibes (a lot of people thought it was the moth from The Silence of the Lamb which was a good guess)
- Test tube – Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
- Stake – Dracula
Happy Halloween from everyone at Hightail.
