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 […]

Exploring the Daydream Spaces of Scott Radke

Cleveland-based artist Scott Radke creates beautifully haunting and utterly unique characters in the form of sculptures and marionettes made of wire, wood, epoxy resin, burlap, and acrylic paint. Some might be quick to describe his characters as otherworldly, but I find them perfectly at home here in this world; it’s just that they inhabit spaces most humans don’t […]

Piercing The Veil: The Evolving Work of Caitlin McCarthy

I have been following the dreamy, delicate, feminine phantoms summoned by Caitlin McCarthy’s hand for a few years now, and their spectral countenances never fail to strike a chord within me. Whether she is illustrating witches or widows, mystics or monsters, sybils or seers–every languid line and shadowed curve, from their trailing, tendrilled tresses, to the fragile lace […]

A Kindred Gloom: The Eerie Photography Of Sir Simon Marsden

For a dreary stretch of years I lived cut off from friends and family in a miserable realm known to me now as, “that shit-hole of which we do not speak,” (to others, I suppose it is just “New Jersey”.) I led a rather joyless existence during that time, especially during the winters, for I […]

Colossal Memento Mori: Mass by Ron Mueck

We’re currently wishing we could magic ourselves over to the National Gallery of Victoria where, as part of the NGV Triennial group exhibition, they’re featuring a jaw-dropping installation by Australian hyperrealist sculptor Ron Mueck, his largest work to date. Entitled Mass, the installation is comprised of 100 individual meter-high fiberglass and resin human skull forms that are piled […]

The Shadow Is Me: An Interview With Jamie Mooers Of Burial Ground

Though I’ve been obsessed with Burial Ground’s magical creations and otherworldly aesthetic for several years now, and have in the past had the distinct pleasure of interviewing one half of its creative team, artist and photographer Bill Crisafi— I knew very little about the brand’s shadow half, Jamie Mooers. As a nosy so-n-so who wants to know everything […]
