Day 16 of www.gothtober.com features the night antics of a couple of wayward ghosts on their way to somewhere else. The film is called “Terminus” having to do with the termination of life, along with the terminals we wait in while we’re taking whatever journeys both life and death require of us.
Shot in and around Vernon and 26th St. of Los Angeles, the ghosts make their way in and around the belly of the city. They go a-haunting among diesel engines, intermodal containers, and corridors of active and forgotten tracks.
Julianna Parr does Gothtober artwork under the guise of Danny Torrance, Ichabod Brains, and other pseudonyms. She is head Candy Corn of the Gothtober Countdown Calendar.
Dazzling ghouls are out to get us! Click on Gothtober’s Pumpkin 21 and find yourself in the midst of a dark and dreamlike realm where perhaps you shouldn’t have decided to investigate what goes bump in the night! These otherworldly apparitions are not shy, they are in your face, they will playfully scare the wits out of you, maybe even poltergeist a few things in your abode just to make you jump.
They might be demons, they might be sprites, they may even be creatures that scare away dark magic, only the spirit world knows for sure! Through the swirling purple smoke is a choreographed seance of movement and dissolving realities, laughter that may be directed at you or in spite of you. Whatever you do, just make sure you don’t make ’em mad, they look like absolute trouble! It’s Rainbones!

Vero Lego’s Hungry Halloween not only gives you recipes for delicious candy ghosts and chocolate spiders — it demonstrates how to create an entirely edible, yummy-sweet action graveyard playset! That’s right, YOU can construct your very own desserty haunted house (is that a load-bearing chocolate wall I just devoured?), make up names for your icing tombstones, put it all together and play ghost-in-the-graveyard in a landscape of macabre, sugary sweetness.*
