The twisted genius of pumpkinrot.com is in evidence here. Check out the website or the flickr set. What amazes me isn't just the loving craftsmanship, full of so much detail, but rather the consistent aesthetic found in the work. There is a clear story to these pieces that can be seen individually, yet only appreciated truly as a whole.
You can sense Pumpkinrot doesn't run your typical mish-mashed haunted house where Dracula and the Wolfman run afoul of Jason and Freddy all in the same disused warehouse. Instead, the classic Halloween meme is mined for the purest horror and deconstructed into a fantastically macbre world that is at once frightening and beautiful. Like the eponymous rotting pumpkin, these pieces have taken motifs from a thousand grade school parties and allowed them to fester in the fetid climate of adulthood.
And I think we (and any cut-rate haunted houses out there reading this) are the better off for having seen the artistry of pumpkinrot.com
