Elsa Lanchester, Herself (Interview And Book Giveaway)

It’s hard to know when imagery so striking, so wonderfully eerie, so utterly iconoclastic as the one presented by Elsa Lanchester as The Bride of Frankenstein, first becomes embedded in one’s memory. When was I not aware of this astonishing creature, this electric-tressed beauty, robed in ghostly whites and the most elegant bandages ever glimpsed […]

Haute Macabre Staff Favorites 2017: Sam’s Picks

The previous year is now weeks behind us, but it’s taken me quite some time to process. I feel that for many of us, 2017 was a truly liminal experience: a year of stepping through thresholds of discomfort and sanctity, and diving deep within each of ourselves to find a truer version of what we […]

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s American Gods + A Giveaway!

During the course of a recent flight to the West Coast, I had the pleasure of re-reading Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and was again treated to one of my very favorite passages in all literature, of all time, ever. “The house smelled musty and damp, and a little sweet, as if it were haunted by the […]

The Mysteries of Cimetière de Montmartre

The other week I had the pleasure of again visiting Paris, one of my most favorite places in the world — partly, I think, because it expects you to earn its love. Paris is like me, or like how I prefer to think of myself: challenging, but worth exploring. It doesn’t require patience so much […]

Macabre Muse: Louisianna Purchase

photo by Muted Fawn Hailed as Austin’s best drag performer by the Austin Chronicles in 2016, Louisanna Purchase is stepping over Sharon Needles’ grave as Kween of Horror Drag (no shade, Sharon, but you’re a little less spooky and a little more sultry now than you were on Drag Race). Louisanna’s Clark Kent is Chad […]

Stacked Alert: Witches Sluts Feminists

I was fortunate enough to get an advance copy of the upcoming Witches Sluts Feminists book by Kristen J. Sollee, founder of Slutist.com, and I cannot recommend to everyone to pre-order this enough. I’m currently only about three chapters in, but thus far, it’s fantastically written, fully informative, and I’ve already had multiple moments of going […]

A Final Look At Sabat Magazine: The Crone Issue

The Crone issue, the final chapter in Sabat Magazine’s life cycle, arrived in my mailbox this weekend.  The timing is interesting; I’ve been reflecting often lately on this ancient archetype, ruminating on a chapter in my own life that has recently ended, with the loss of my own beloved crone, my 96 year old grandmother and family […]

Expedition Report: Viktor Wynd’s Wunderpunk Cabinet of Curiosities

At a glance, The Last Tuesday Society may look like a petite, old-timey bar, with jaunty white motifs snaking across a black facade, but passersby should look again: the motifs are actual snakes and trees bearing fantastic fruit. High above the window looking out on Mare street in East London’s Hackney neighborhood is a sign […]
