1. Mummy by Nathan Shelton

A cartoonish mummy might not seem creepy at first glance, but the blood-red eyes give me the heebie jeebies! 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-13-09  

2. Venezia in Nero by Rebecca Puebla

Creepy is definitely descriptive of this 3-D imagery by Rebecca Puebla. The combination of masks and hoods takes the uneasiness to a freakish level. It’s weird, and it’s wonderful. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-13-04  

3. Ride or Die by Damian King

The macabre meets the mischievous in this illustration of a mummy riding a bicycle. It’s full of dark comedy and adds a little levity to the insanity of the idea. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-57  

4. Creepy Skeleton by SeasAndPeas

The amateurish illustration only adds to the creepiness of this big-eyed skeleton. The child-like simplicity gives the horror more weight and a sense of evil. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-47  

5. Creepy Doll by Teri Springer

Gothic horror is on full display with this disembodied doll’s head set against the background of a haunted mansion. The grunge design adds to the weirdness, making this the perfectly creepy card to send on Halloween. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-37  

6. A Gathering of Friends by Gustav Renby

A bloody face graces the front of this card, made more mysterious in black and white. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-29  

7. Wakin The Dead by Gregbo Watson

I’m not sure which is creepier in this design: the iPod-wearing gravedigger, or the bloody shovel. Either way, the dead are waking… and they’re ready to dance. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-22  

8. Halloween Greeting Cards by Auld Edinburgh

Masks, ghosts, and even a noose will send shivers down the spine of those unlucky enough to find one of these in their mailbox. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-15  

9. Spooky Software by Gelb Lobashov

I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in this surreal design, but that doesn’t make it any less creepy. As a matter of fact, the randomness makes it even more creepy.  Go on, stare at it. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-12-09  

10. Black Spider by Derrick Castle

Look twice at this seemingly simple black spider, and you’ll find hidden images trapped in its web. 10 Creepy Halloween Greeting Cards.docx - WordPad_2012-10-10_16-11-59

I love the cartoonish stuff they posted on this blog. They're so cute that I wish I had posters of them on my room. I know halloween is supposed to be scary but it is also about having fun so I'd stick to the fun part.

Thanks for your comment, Anastacia! I think part of the fun of Halloween is the scary part! I absolutely agree that many of these designs would make great Halloween posters.
