A treat for Halloween

Halloween is soon knocking on our doors, how exciting! This little piece of illustration is dedicated to all the audiences who have supported me for the last two months. I wish you guys a fantastic Halloween day, full of laughters and "trick-or-treat" candies.

For a cosy yet scary night on Halloween, Let the right one in (2008) and Pan's Labyrinth (2006) are on my first-list recommendations. Not too bloody, not too horrid, the two movie is filled with heart-wrecking moments and sparkles of sweetness amisdt the dark fantasy world full of terrifying events and creatures.

If you have young children, I truly recommend Labyrinth, a 1986 movie with David Bowie and the gorgeous, youthfull Jennifer Connelly. A trememdous cult montage about an alternative world of the Goblins (which was created by the amazing Brian Froud) will bring yours kids from surprise to surprise, as well as enough laughters and creeps for an unforgettable Halloween night.

Enjoy! And don't forget to tell me how your Halloween goes. I shall be craving for every bizarre detail.
