The Weeping Mask by ECTmonster The Weeping Mask by ECTmonster
As a kid I always hated basements. Something about the huge empty void of pitch black, where all your hairs stand on end and if anything touches you, that's the end of it. This piece is inspired by that terrible time when you have to reach and grasp for a pull-chain for the light. As much as I hated the dark in basements, the only thing I dreaded more was what I might see standing there with me when the lights finally came on.

It has to be said that I did this piece entirely while listening to Joseph Bishara's excellent soundtrack to Insidious. Gave me the willies!

I couldn't even lift my arm to turn on the basement light with out covering my armpit for fear of some creature tickling me in those dark spaces.
I love this piece of work, it has the same demented power of Chet Zar, keep bringing us your awesome view of the macabre.

Ha~! We don't have a basement~! *smirks* ...is it me or is it getting cold here? *looks behind*

You made me rethink, is it scarier with the lights turned off or on?
