31 Nightmares 2018: The 11th

Since we started this thing back in 2015, horror movie soundtracks has been a favorite topic amongst our assortment of all things creepy.

Today, we’re highlighting one of my personal favorites in the genre, Master of Horror, Mr. John Carpenter. John is quite the composer and has done some of the most iconic themes for your favorite horror films.

You can find a sizable list for John Carpenter with some of his best titles on Spotify below

 

 

I highly recommend just letting them all shuffle play this time of year. 🙂

31 Nightmares 2018: The 1st

It’s been three years now since we first began this series. Now, becoming a sort of tradition backed by horror-loving demand,

31 Nightmares

has returned.


When we first started this madness in 2015, we did so in tribute to man whose life has touched so many in their respective fields. That man is Mr. Wes Craven, and you can read about how this series got its start here. Since then, it has grown into much more—a gathering of us horror heads, if you will.

For now, my Snapping Turtle family would simply like to welcome you here. Don’t forget! CardCastles Terms apply here during this event as well as across all social media accounts. We’ve got some guests coming up while we waltz through each day and night. Please be kind. We don’t want to have to feed you to our guards.

Love,

Daydreams


If you are into the world of special effects like we are here at home, there is someone I highly recommend following that we haven’t mentioned before.

His name is Kevin Yagher

and his Instagram account can be found below.

I had already been familiar with Kevin’s work from hearing his name floated around horror circles. What I didn’t know was the sheer number of things Mr. Yagher has worked on. If you do a little digging, you’ll find out this man’s trail of past work is seriously impressive.

One of the highlights worth mentioning is recently Kevin started selling some of his work as well:

How cool is that?

Sleepy Sundays: Underwater Haven

Underwater Haven
This Morning

This Mother’s Day weekend we’re sharing two designs I was able to squeeze in instead of the usual one. They both have neat stories attached. The first above with our little underwater friends was inspired by my own mother and my sister and a day we spent down by the beach. They are the early phase of more greeting designs and wall art of their nature.

The second piece was inspired by a musician we’ve followed for years in our family. This weekend she asked on her Twitter page, what is your favorite Bob Marley song and it sparked up a conversation here at home. There are so many, but as I replied, Three Little Birds has a special meaning to me. & It also was the thought behind this piece, along with some fond memories.

Do you have a favorite musician that you share with someone close?

Have a peaceful Sunday!

31 Nightmares 2017: The 28th

We’ve talked a lot about the importance of sound & music in horror when it comes to television, movies, and video games. The topic is sprinkled about throughout these years of doing #31Nightmares.

Along with soundtracks and sound effects, recently I came across a wonderfully haunting theme that belongs to a show.

We are nearing the end of our nightmarish journey. Still more to come. We hope you’ve enjoyed this October with us here at cardcastlesinthesky.com
