my body is a haunted house

Red days are when the wolves howl all night and in the morning the birds return with torn out feathers. The days are filled with ambulance sirens. My hair is on fire. Everything moves in slow motion. The flames, the heat, my body soaked in kerosene. The screams in the distance. The monster in the corner, gawking. The stripped birds. And then: the wolves. 

Blue days are heavy and I spend them speaking in spiderwebs. My reflection is clouded and the air is always too humid. The world does anything it can to make my bones weigh me down. My hands, a noose. My head, a haunted house. My heart, turned into a stress ball for when you needed it most.

Green days are spent wondering if it was painful when the sky had stars sewn into it. Wondering if the pain was worth it. Cactus spines stuck underneath skin when you try to drink the water. I am walking the precipice, one foot in the real world and one stuck in dreams. I am an inventor these days, writing fables for a childhood I can’t remember.

Purple days are murky and the owls have dangerous omens. I am on the tightrope. I am living out my childhood dream of being a ballerina. I am the circus act. I am the caged bird. I am spinning on my axis. The bystanders hold a collective breath. They are, after all, just paying for a pretty show. They don’t care about what comes after the fall.

Yellow days are a safe haze, coating my hands in syrup. My blood stays on the inside of my body. My skin actually does its job. Everything is safe and sultry. There is lemonade without sugar. There is your messy mouth again. Everything moves in reverse. There is my candy necklace. There are the sunflowers. There is the sunset we named after us.

Pink days are sunrises and fairy floss. I write about flowers and paint my face in watercolors. There are sugar angels on the counters. The spice containers are overfilling. I am happy and whole. I am kinetic energy and the explosion that comes with. I am rosy cheeked, and roses growing from my wrists. There is no pain. There is only the beauty I’ve torn myself apart to create. I am on the edge of a cliff. I have my wings. When I jump, I am a bird set free.

Ichimatsu: Lethal Weapon Human

Ichimatsu dressed as the Lethal Weapon Human, who is said to have been created by being fused with lethal weapons through reconstructive surgery. Because of the fairly stiff equipment, there’s an impression that his actual body is turning.

for @knox​, who wanted to see the translation for haunted house ichi! and honestly I don’t blame him, this is one of my all-time fave ichis in heso wars (I powered through this event solely for him I gave zero fucks about the other ones)

haunted house holds a special place in my heart sOOOO I’ll just be doing all of the bros + nonmatsus

To the man I fall asleep next to:
Some days I will wake up in a cold sweat
Panting Tiredly Startled Delirious
Ptsd doesn’t always haunt those who wear camo overseas
But I know how to treat you like a bomb shelter
I will shake you awake when I remember you are there
Because my panic attacks are silent alarms and I feel bad asking for help
I am warrior, victim, and villain all in one and some battle cries are louder than others
My body a house fire, my body a burn victim, my body thinks how familiar this pain is, at least I know how it ends
You hold me, tell me to go back to sleep, I’m safe now
I may feel like ashes, but that’s how phoeniexs are birthed
And you ask why I welcome my insomnia
I tell you it’s hard enough battling my demons in the sunlight, damage control is a muscle memory I’ve mastered but only because I can see my auto pilot
And when I fall asleep at the wheel there’s no telling what train wreck I dream up
How sometimes my trauma posses me into a sleep paralysis and i wake up apologizing 
I’m sorry is the loudest cry for help I know how to say out loud because
I cannot wake up without my life flashing before my eyes
I cannot wake up without seeing all of my abusers
And sometimes I mix up reality
A lot of my memory is still missing
But when you overdose twice that’s just a part of the side effects
Sometimes I feel more like a side effect than a girlfriend
You assure me I’m no longer a side chick, tell me to just accept my past instead of moving on
But my disorders are still moving in
And you missed the point entirely
And when I go days without bathing, hardly going into my bathroom at all
Remember that sometimes that floor
Has been more of an intimate lover than you could ever hope to be
More times than not my mirror is not kind to me
And some times showering feels like punishment, when I instinctively leave the nozzle on cold because it burns extra calories
I can’t find the trenches I made of my rib cages and that scares me
I let your hands become a pearl necklace and I breath into your neck like my harbor
I never said I was good at picking,bomb shelters
But the sex is a really great distraction
Even though you fall asleep after climaxes and my big o is more like a smoke ring
A cloud 9 that blurs my thoughts and I want you to smoke me out because
There is a war in my head and I am tired of fighting
Sometimes I am just sad with no verbal explanation
I’ve been trained to never have a good enough reason
After all, a good soldier knows how to not let the truth be tortured out of them,no matter how kindly you ask what’s wrong
And I know a lot of the days it feels like 1 step forward then 3 step back, but that’s how post traumatic growth works
Id just like you to know that your smile still turns my survivors guilt into appreciation
And I’m not good at communicating outside of poetry
So you can either love me as a survivor or not at all
—  If I Love You Like a Bomb Shelter, Will You Love Me as a Prisoner? // t.p.g

i.
haunted. my skin is like a house with walls that crawl with uneasy ghosts – your touch still lives with me, slithering into the spaces between my fingers where your hands used to be. i never knew something that wasn’t there could hurt so badly.

ii.
raking over old coals only brings more heat to the surface, more burning under the scars i thought had healed. i claw at them to stop the madness, but they only gape wider. and still, they burn.

iii.
in the rain, they ache like my bones are cracking apart in my body. the chill you left with your wintery goodbye seeps through to the core, leaving me almost numb. almost.

iv.
it’s like a part of me is gone but still there. i can feel your fingers and smell your cologne, and it’s like you never left, except when i reach for you, you’re not there. a faint swirl of smoke, the echo of your smile, and nothing more.

v.
some things never rest peacefully.

If Lost Dimension was just a haunted house experience

yes

sorry


p.s. I’m taking part in nanowrimo next month probably so I won’t be free to draw arts…I’m lining up a few Lost Dimension stuff to release slowly on a schedule when Nov does roll around tho (cuz I still have things I want to draw)

Yōkai!AU I blame @criscura

Once we were talking about various possible AUs and the “Saitama inherits old, traditional tea house” was dropped. Then I went “WHAT IF IT WAS HAUNTED”

And it somehow went there. What if Genos was the annoying ghost/demon haunting that house. I kind of wanted him to have a ball-jointed-doll-like  body, to keep with the theme of Genos not having hormal, human one body.

He’s probably surprised that Saitama not only can see him, but isn’t even scared. 

anonymous asked:

I see you've seen hitchcock films? :)) do you have any favorites? (I don't think Ill ever get over Psycho or Rope.. or Grace Kelly in Rear Window!)

AHHH boy, have I! I was a little obsessed in my teen years and I had a dvd collection of all his early films + was constantly trying to watch Alfred Hitchcock Presents and his later films despite the fact that they usually freaked out my siblings haha…ah. If you’re ever feeling down, definitely watch some of Hitch’s early work like there was one he made that was AWFUL and cheesy and was about a haunted house but it wasn’t haunted and the dead body wasn’t dead and random? Train scene? Anyone can improve, clearly! 

I think if I had to name favorites I’d say The Lady Vanishes (characters are so great, love granny spy), The Lodger (some really cool sfx), Rebecca (just for spoopy atmosphere), Shadow of a Doubt (LOVE+ Hitch considered it his finest film), To Catch a Thief (amazing ladies and costumes<3), The Birds (why’d my fave have to die), and Rear Window (just…such a good thriller). I’d say the only one of his that I downright Hated was Marnie. It is well made/written and I gleaned a lot from the use of color but other than that it was quite gross. :/ 

22 Horror Movies for Snow Days *all available on Netflix right freakin' now!*

External image

This photo from American Mary is just here for the thumbnail.

  1. American Mary

A promising surgical student drops out of school after a traumatic event and gets caught up in a black market for extreme body modification. Expect wit and gore but not jump scares. This is one of my personal favorites. Watch the trailer here.

 

2) The Taking of Deborah Logan

Do you like occult films but feel like you’ve seen everything the subgenre has to offer? Try The Taking of Deborah Logan. The film follows a group of students making a thesis documentary about Alzheimer’s. Naturally, things take a dark turn and we find that nothing is as it seems. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

3) The Damned

How do you destroy an entity that can’t be destroyed? Watch the trailer here.

 

4) Stitches

If you’re more into laughs and camp, you might like Stitches. In this slasher horror-comedy, a crude, sloppy clown comes back from the dead to exact revenge on the people who killed him during a freak accident at a children’s party. Watch the trailer here.

 

5) Cabin in the Woods

A group of friends goes on vacation to a cabin in the woods… AGAIN. Same old slasher movie you’ve seen a million times before? Uh, not quite. Find out who’s behind the scenes making this trip a complete nightmare. Nothing is what it seems at this cabin… and nothing is a coincidence. Another one of my personal favorites- a movie specifically for horror fans who like to poke fun at horror archetypes. Watch the trailer here.

 

6) Scream

A masked killer stalks and kills the high schoolers of a small town. A group of friends realizes that in order to survive they must follow the rules of typical horror movies.  It might sound generic, but it’s very self-aware and witty. If there is ever a chance for me to recommend Scream, I will. This is one of my favorites of all time (yeah, seriously!) Watch the trailer here.

 

7) Oculus

A young woman seeks to exonerate her brother after he is released from a mental rehabilitation center, where he had been kept since childhood for allegedly murdering his father. What does she attempt to prove? That a mirror was responsible for the strange events and murders that took place in the homes of its owners, including their own. It’s really great but be warned the it has a non-linear narrative film structure, meaning scenes jump back and forth between present day and flashbacks. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

8) You’re Next

Another film that takes the slasher genre and turns it on its head. A well-to-do family comes together for a weekend to celebrate the mother’s and father’s anniversary. What’s supposed to be a fun celebration turns into a nightmare when the family realizes they are being hunted down. Find out why when you check out this unique, surprisingly funny, gory slasher. This made my Best of 2013 list with a tie for first place. Watch the trailer here.

 

9) The House of the Devil

A babysitter realizes her clients have a strange, dark secret. This is a slow-paced film with a 70s or 80s look. Not everyone will be into that, but it’s really good if you make it through the slow parts. Watch the trailer here.

 

10) Contracted

A young woman contracts an STD… or so she thinks. Watch the trailer here.

 

11) The Innkeepers

During a hotel’s final days of being open, two employees seek to reveal its haunted past. Along the way, they experience some strange, creepy events. This film is made by Ti West, the same person who made The House of the Devil. It’s also slow-paced, but it’s good if you make it through the slow parts. This movie is pretty funny, so it makes the slow parts more bearable. Watch the trailer here.

 

12) All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

A group of high school friends invites the nerd-turned-hottie to a weekend getaway at a summer house. Of course, things go wrong and people end up dead but nothing is as it seems. Watch the trailer here.

 

13) Witching and Bitching

A group of thieves are trapped in a town full of witches by a coven. This film is hilarious, witty, and tons of fun. It’s in Spanish, but don’t let subtitles scare you away from great movies! This movie made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

14) Dumplings

Women seeking a more youthful look turn to a rather unsavory remedy to do the trick. This movie is foreign, so there will be subtitles. It will creep you out and it will gross you out. Watch the trailer here.

 

15) We Are What We Are

This slow-paced, gothic-style film follows a family preparing for a secret ritual. The last 5 minutes are worth the build-up. Watch the trailer here.

 

16) Proxy

If you’re looking for a more cerebral type of movie, give Proxy a try. Essentially, the film follows three parents who have lost children. It’s gory, unique, and definitely keeps you guessing. You’ll think you have it all figured out, but you’ll probably be wrong. This made my Best of 2014 list. Watch the trailer here.

 

17) The Snowtown Murders

Based on a true story, a teenager falls in with his mother’s new boyfriend and his group of neighborhood watchmen who use murder and torture as a means of protecting their neighborhood. It’s pretty graphic and violent, so it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but Snowtown really is worth the watch. Watch the trailer here.

 

18) Devil

After The Village and The Happening, did you lose all faith in M. Night Shyamalan? Sit down and watch Devil, a murder mystery that takes place almost completely in a stuck elevator. It’s creepy and fast-paced. Watch the trailer here.

 

19) Alyce Kills

Alyce accidentally (“accidentally?”) kills her friend and subsequently delves into a world of sex, drugs, and murder. It’s cerebral, it’s badass. Watch the trailer here.

20) Kill List

A former hitman takes on a new job with a promise of a big payoff. It seems like a normal job at first, but things get darker and darker. It builds up suspense, so there aren’t really many jump scares. Watch the trailer here.

21) The Conspiracy

Friends making a documentary about conspiracy theories decide to infiltrate the ritualistic gathering of a secret society. Watch the trailer here

22) The Haunting

This haunted house-themed remake is only on this list because it’s the first horror movie I ever saw in a theater and because I didn’t want to end the list at 21. I have a soft spot in my heart for it. Watch the trailer here.

a bunch of you guys were really interested in the background to my jason todd design, so here’s another pic and some more info! 

so, my jason is a revenant, which is essentially a resurrected dead person whose soul has been put back into their body. the soul never fits back in the way it’s meant to – you end up with kind of a loose binding of body and essence, essentially a ghost “haunting” its own body, the same as it might a house or other buildings. it has some interesting side effects, both pretty cool and pretty awful. one of the good ones: you can empty an entire handgun clip into him and not put him down; same for other kinds of usually fatal injuries. he CAN die, but it takes a lot of damage. makes for good scaring of bad guys who think they’ve killed the red hood.

one of the bad ones: when he’s experiencing any kind of serious psychic or emotional trauma, his soul’s grip on his body gets much weaker. the wounds that killed him start opening back up, he gets cold, and he kind of loses his grip on anything but the anger and terror he felt when he died – think every terrifying vengeful ghost in any horror movie, then give it a corporeal body. that’s jason in a bad moment. (the cure? LOVE AND AFFECTION FROM HIS FAMILY. it really is that cheesy. :’))

the cheek scar is the first blow the crowbar landed; it broke his jaw and split his left cheek all the way up to the ear. it’s the first wound that opens back up; when he’s under a lot of duress sometimes he’ll sew it up himself, just to keep his face from, uh, splitting open. it’s not real convenient in the middle of a fight.

thanks so much for all your interest in my art! :)

Haunted house au

Hope’s Peak Academy has become infamous thanks to a Junko Enoshima killing off the student body in a murderous tirade. Thirty years later, the school was made into an incredibly detailed haunted house that’s one of the most famous in Japan.

Hinata- Hajime works with Komaeda and Makoto in Hell’s Basement. Most of the time Hajime is with Komaeda behind the fences that line the pathway, shaking the fence and screaming, while Makoto jumpscares guests by bursting out of an oven and screaming for help.

Gundham- He works in a classroom as a teacher. His bit is yelling at other students and rocking in the corner humming nursery rhymes.

Souda- He works in the auto classroom with Mondo. Both wield wrenches and power tools.

Tsumiki- She works in the nurse’s office, rocking on a chair and occasionally threatening guests with a syringe.

Mahiru- Her and Saionji work as students in classrooms. They hide behind drop-outs and jump scare guests.


Twogami- He works in the cafeteria. Lots of fake cannibalism.

Fuyuhiko-He works in the nursery with Peko. She rocks in the corner and he hides in drop-outs and screams ‘don’t leave me here’.

Ibuki- She’s the art teacher. Covered in paint and always speaking nonsense to disturb guests.

Akane- Lunch lady in the cafeteria. Usually sits at a lunch table and creepily pretends to eat the food.

Nidai- He’s a guard in detention hall.

Hanamura- Cook in the cafeteria.

Sonia- a teacher who hangs herself in front of guests.

Leon- Leon works in Hell’s Basement as well, he usually shoves Makoto back in the oven and carries an axe to up the scare factor.

Sayaka-Makeup artist. She applies all the fake blood and face paint.

Ishimaru- He’s an adult that’s killed by ‘Junko’ in front of guests.

Togami- He’s the history teacher. Covered in blood.

Chihiro- They work in the nursery and sit in a crib, singing nursery songs while covered blood.

Asahina- A student that’s killed by accidental electrocution in detention hall.

Oogami- chainsaw killer in detention hall

Yamada- art teacher, covered in paint and blood and carries an exacto knife.

Yasuhiro- He just takes tickets and helps with makeup.

Celestia- She does makeup and doubles as a murderous teacher.

Fukawa- She does jump scares and hides in lockers.

And anytime a younger kid (teenager) gets scared Mondo, Souda, and Leon stop all scares and leads them to the front entrance and gives them candy and a hug. ~ ashsnake
