As amazing as this house is it just lends itself to all sorts of imaginary scenarios. Who were the builders, what was life like then, who lived here, who living or not so living resides here…..etc. With those thoughts in mind I stared at one shot of the house and images of Dark Shadows and Psycho and Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte came to mind (Yes! I have watched some scary things in my time.) So with a spooky grungy texture layer and several blending modes I came up with this image. Maybe I went a bit too happy with the conversion but it reminds me of an old silent movie where the film is all grainy and scratchy; a tintype photo or an old scary movie poster. What do you think?

Don’t know how you did it but love it. It looks like you dug the photo up along with the other family treasures locked away in an old wooden chest buried in the basement from the mid 1800’s.
And if you stare at the upper right window you just might see something…LOL. I watch too many strange movies. Thanks
I like it a lot! certainly looks haunted now.. c
Thanks 🙂 Any ideas on what genre of old house this could be?
I hear the scratchiness of an old reel to reel in a projectionist booth. “Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte” was one of my favorite Betty Davis’ movies.
That was one creepy movie with two excellent actresses. Guard your bag of chips lest the monsters in the dark grab them 😉
Yes it is 🙂
Well that certainly did the trick. It went from abandoned to being the main setting for a Stephen King story. Well done, Teri.
Thanks! and BOO! lol
Very spooky! I wouldn’t be caught D-E-D in there…!
LOL! Thanks and Happy Sharefest to you too!
Reblogged this on filmcamera999.
And yes, I am a fan of the old-school scary movies, too, including HHSC and Psycho, and the dry-as-bones humor of Dark Shadows! Cool!
Thanks 🙂 My psyche has been permanently altered by all of the horror movies I used to watch. I refuse to watch the newer genres of “horror” movies because they are just too gory.
