Newbie Survey

1. What are 5 of your favorite Horror Movies?
     1. The Exorcist
     2. Silence of the Lambs (technically a thriller, I know)
     3. Bram Stoker's Dracula
     4. Sleepy Hollow
     5. Rosemary's Baby/The Omen (a tie)

2. Do you have a prize item in your horror collection?
    Not really...I recently moved, and so this is the first opportunity I've really had to go all-out spooky/goth with my living quarters.  I'm sure in a month or so my answer will be different. ;]

3. What kind of house, apartment, etc.. do you have?
    I just moved into a one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn.  It's somewhat unusual because it has a very long corridor that leads from the front door into the living room...I think that, with some adjustments and lighting I'll be able to turn it into a very creepy gallery. squeeee! I already have a plastic demon sign tacked above the light switch that says "Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here" and some fake spiderweb strands I've woven into the chandelier to give it that "I haven't been tended to in years" look...and a fake spider I've lovingly christened "Abby" after the goth NCIS character.  The rest of the apartment has real potential.

4. Are any of the rooms in your house horror-themed/decorated?
    I have little bits and pieces so far.  The aforementioned hallway...I also have a skull perched on my TV in the living room, a small cauldron on my coffee table, and a side table decorated with a gravestone candle, a Day of the Dead skeleton statue and a palmistry hand.  I also have skeleton statues and HR Giger prints in my room.  So far so good. 

5. Do you collect anything specific?
    I am a graphic designer and artist, so I imagine that most of the things I have in my house will be homemade to some extent.  But I am particularly fond of Day of the Dead imagery, as well as spooky religious iconography and gothic curios.  As soon as I finish furnishing this place, I'm going to begin adding to my collection.  Hopefully I'll be able to get a webcam so I can show them off!

In the meantime, I look forward to checking out this community.  Thanks for adding me!

Cool movie list!
With Halloween coming up you should be able to find lots of neat stuff for your new home. The creepy gallery idea sounds cool.
I have a palmistry hand, it's hanging on the wall.
I collect HR Giger stuff. I have some books, prints, and other various stuff.

Do you have a website with your art?

:)

The groups not very active, but more people are joining. So maybe it will get more active.

Your icon is cool. Ginger Snaps is one of my favorite movies.
