Creepy is a feeling that causes an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease. Or, frightening, eerie, disturbing, sinister, weird, hair-raising, menacing, threatening, scary, and freaky. You get the idea, and the feeling, by viewing these diabolical photographic images. Conjured up on Halloweens gone by, they are like looking at a horror movie. Or worse, a very bad nightmare.
This is from an actual childhood photograph of the artist on Halloween during the 1960s. The original image was shot on Kodachrome and developed into 35mm Kodak slides.
