I must credit a fellow Halloween blogger, The Spooky Vegan, for showing me this beautifully haunting video, The Kingdom of Witches. The music is by Nox Arcana and its based on the silhouette art of Jan Pienkowski. It is just an example of how creative people can get and that there is nothing more powerful than the imagination in one’s own mind. Jan Pienkowski won the 1980 Kate Greenaway Medal for his pop-up book, Haunted House, which I do intend to purchase.

There is a creature alive today who has survived millions of years of evolution without change, without passion and without logic. It lives to kill. A mindless eating machine. It will attack and devour….. anything. It is as if God created the Devil…and gave him… JAWS.
If you haven’t seen this yet re-cut trailer yet on Youtube, you must. This is an example of the power of editing and how something as sweet as Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” can become something as sinister and frightening as “Scary Mary”.
