    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.

    This article is beneath smashingmag standard:
    Nearly no Wallpaper in Full HD! Sorry, but this is a no-go.
    I love smashingmag wallpaper galleries but this one isn’t what makes me happy.

    But keep up your great work. Smashingmag rocks!

    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.

    For great “Creepy” artwork you should look for Heavy Metal bands. There’s some great art!

    I LOVE horror…but….

    seriously? The Hellraiser/Freddy wallpapers that look like they’re made by a 12 year old?

    Seriously?

    Yea… not my thing. Just seems like a jumbled collection of anything that remotely fit under the “horror” category.

    Brilliant art work! I like the wallpaper taken from “Silent Hill”, there’s a lot of texture on this wallpaper.

    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

    to be honest: boring and not very interesting. surely a lot of work gathering those, but hmm again no smashing-mag-level.

    Does feel like a filler article… what I want to know is how much did someone got paid for writing this?

    Sorry, but this one really was a wasted post. I have been a fan now for a while but if this is the direction the site is going…. then I will take my reading somewhere else. Nice attempt, but it really looks like someone was hard up for some content…….. Thanks for the effort…..

    These wallpapers are quite amazing, specially “Master Of Fire” and “Bleeding Angel” are mindblowing, thank you for these lovely wallpapers.

    this is a bad selection. i love horror but i wouldn’t use any of those wallpapers. many of them are lacking in style and/or technique and i got no clue why they’re appearing on smashingmag.

    I think for many people here few of those are of any use. I know I stopped using 1024 about 5 years ago and many of those are based around those low resolutions…

    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.

    I think you guys need to stop posting ‘lists’ of artwork.
    its always work that is complete garbage. stick with the web trends, those articles are amazing. or at least get somebody with an eye to build up these lists.
