There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half of an hour. Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down. The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says, "Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man cry." "No, it's not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police said that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away." "I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar. And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison."

The Crone

The Crone will work her magic on the night of Samhain, calling the soles of the dead to her cauldron. Stirring away the old and bringing life to the new. Her calling is that of creator. She is the guardian of time and of the changes it brings to all. A reminder that even when night is at its darkest the day will be born again.

Dislikes : Fairies, I mean who doesn't.

Likes : The magic of the old ways, cats and eye of newt.

Level one warning : The Crone is kind, she leaves no sole untended. She is the eternal cycle of life and the Mother of all Earth, but she can be angered.

Dear Mortimer.
I have a very interesting problem. My fiance, whom I love very much, and myself are in the theater. We both love to perform, and he has a lovely singing voice. The problem is, I can't get him on stage any longer, and he refuses to leave the theater to visit with our mutual friends and relatives due to a disfiguring accident not long ago. He finds himself unworthy now of other peoples eyes. How can I approach the subject of modern medicine and plastic surgery to him without hurting his feelings? All he does now is trap young women underneath the stage and make them sing duets with him. It embarrasses me, and I love him so I just want what is best for him!
Thank you.
Stage Starlet

Dear Starlet.
I think what your fiance is going through is a mild form of depression. I think what you should consider before talking to him about facial reconstruction is how he might need to talk to somebody about how the accident made him feel! He's acting out because nobody is listening to him, and I think that his feelings and needs are very important at this time. I think if you just listen, he will come around. THEN you can broach the subject of his face and how to fix it.

Since than we have been the home of some great horror artists. We are one of the few remaining REAL horror groups on dA, something we pride ourselves on. There are a few things that make us stand out from the crowd and the main thing is we follow the standards of this great community, and we have grown.

Both have come into there own and are a very important part of DA-Morgue.

This month I have hand pick pieces from our members with the horror theme in mind. I came up with some real gruesome images. I have to upload just thumbs, so click on the piece for a better look.

Let The Right One In

"Let The Right One In" is Swedish gem is adapted from the book of the same name. The author wrote the screenplay, which is always a good thing in my opinion.

The story is a study in the darker nature of humanity both young and old alike. It is also a vampire story, one of the most original and unsettling I've ever seen. The story centers around Oskar, a 12 year old boy who is relentlessly bullied at school. As a result he likes to play with knives and act out violent fantasies on trees. Oskar it seems is headed for a Columbine like fit of violence in the near future, that is if a vampire didn't move into his apartment complex.

Eli appears to be an 11 year old girl traveling with her "father" Hakan. The relationship between Hakan and the vampire is a twisted one. The allusion is that he is a pedophile insomuch as he loves this eternal child and is willing to kill for her in order to remain at her side (the book confirms this). This way Eli can feed and it doesn't look like a vampire attack, nor does she run the risk of creating vampires as long as Hakan gets blood for her.

The plot continues to twist as Eli and Oskar become first friends and then "lovers" as they grow close enough to "go steady". Oskar is not put off by Eli's nature and Eli teaches him to stand up against his bullies. I won't get into the story beyond that as I don't want to spoil it but there are some very interesting moments in the film concerning the relationship of the two children. There are times when Oskar seems cruel to Eli because of his knowledge of what she is, particularly in a scene where he forces Eli to enter his home without an invitation. Eli on the other hand seems to loom dangerously about Oskar when he discovers her secret. Forming a bond with a vampire is a dangerous gamble to say the least. Yet despite the darkness of their companionship these two damaged souls share a bond of real love no matter how dark and twisted it may be.

The acting by all concerned is excellent! Especially the two girls who play the vampire Eli (yes 2 girls watch the movie and see what I mean). This is not an in your face gorefest (not that it lacks blood) but instead this is a slow burn to a flash fire ending. I highly recommend this film to any who enjoy atmospheric, creepy horror films. See it now!

I am retiring too :D This club is often a day or two slow in accepting submissions.

I really liked da-skeleton-crew when nitchwarmer had plenty of time for it.  His sense of humor made it a joy to stop by.

No offense, folk, but waiting days for submission accept/decline is pretty silly.
