    god! my head is reeling after looking at these. Few of these like demon forever and Tamayo museum are downright sickening. yuck!

    I liked “the black cat” and “reflections” . “Ashes and memories” is subtle yet dark.
    ….But whats the mcdonald baby doing in here? hehe..funny

    Nice collection! Baby Ronald is the scariest one! :)

    I think one named “Girl” is of Monica Belucci, in “The Grimm Brothers” movie. And the one named “Horror Wallpaper” is Balrog, from “The Lord of the Rings” movie.

    Ich bin zum ersten mal richtig enttäuscht von smashingmagazine.com.
    Die Auswahl an stümperhaften Photoshopcollagen ist in ihrer Anzahl nur noch durch ihre Laienhaftigkeit zu überbieten.
    Ich finde es schade das Inhalt nur um des Inhaltswillen publiziert wird. Die Artikel hatten wenigstens bis jetzt immer Substanz, auch wenn man mal etwas länger warten muss.

    I’m not a horror wallpaper fan but I liked 70% of what I saw there. Guess the naysayers are simply extreme horror lovers who have seen every piece of horror art under the moon and are very critical OR they simply don’t like horror wallpaper and are expressing their displeasure in a general sense.

    long time reader first time poster, and I am posting for a reason. These are horrible and really well below the standards of the smashing magazine that I love. I am not sure what you were thinking, by including this garbage.

    A week’s ban for everybody who complained, probably all the small minded web designers who want to pop one off to more 2.0 regurgitation.

    Believe it or not there are actually people who can design for many different media’s.

    This post would appeal to many a digital artist’s, myself included that love to create image manipulations of this genre to unleash some out of the box creativity that gets boxed up during the week of client based web graphic designs.

    Some selfish designers out there.

    Smash Mag forever!!!
