Stephen Gammell Compilation by ColinMartinPWherman Stephen Gammell Compilation by ColinMartinPWherman
Everyone remembers the magically haunting art of Stephen Gammell from Alvin Schwartz's "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark" series of books from the 90s. This Compilation is my homage to the images that captivated me as a little kid. The images I chose to include are my favorites, with my two absolute favorites being the girl with the spiders on her face and the freakishly pale woman with the long face to her left.

Let me know if you'd like an 11x17" printout of this.

I love Mr. Gammell's art style. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have become a horror film addict


I think the story that really scared me was the one about the dress, I think that was the reason I didn't want to go to Prom, my mind reminded me of that story X'D

I think The wolf girl is a true story beacuse when a child parents died like a new born baby the animals know that they need a mom and dad beacuse they know how we feel they got feelings like us. And I sick of people hunting these creatures and captureing every one that got rasied by an animal

I don't think monsters come after people who misspell "events".

It sucks how they replaced the original artwork in the books with some pictures that aren't even remotely terrifying.
