This image, was perhaps, constructed almost entirely out of fear. The Creepy Cat and Lighthouse is an atmospheric take on the haunted house genre that works more with dread and the looming specter of death than the traditional tropes that often define the genre.

There are traditional creepy places that hint at something hidden in the walls or use dark shadows to produce a scare, but it almost feels like the artist here, uses those just to keep viewers tethered to a genre with which he wants to do something more ambitious.

But what makes this fear genuinely entertaining is that the creepy things we feel remind us of invulnerability and force us to question that which we rarely want to talk about.

Creepy Cat and Lighthouse aren’t about ghosts as much as it is about the eerie sensation of impending doom. You know, the kind that comes for us sooner than later. And all of these thoughts start to swirl inside our heads, creating silliness but good wholesome dread.
