NoiselessPenguin comments: Nothing says ‘vampire’ better than tomato ketchup squirted onto an ugly grey wall.

Wow… Thanks to NoiselessPenguin!

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.86 out of 10)

    ooo.. that’s a pretty darn scary wall. I would suggest standing at least a foot away from it or you could be in trouble!

    Aiiieeeee! A vampyric wall. I’d better not lean against it in a very awkward manner that allows my neck to press up against the bricks.

    My mum always says to me, ‘Getting you to do any work is like trying to get blood out of a stone!’

    Really we should have been looking at ways to get blood into a stone!

    Someone’s Black And White Minstrel Show makeup went horribly wrong.

    Not that Black And White Minstrel Show makeup could in any way be right.

    The prequel to Evil Dead movies features the Wallnomicron. Little known fact!

  6. LP Says:

    Titles that didn’t make the cut:

    “The Walls Have Fears”
    “Bit the Bricks”
    “The Biting is On the Wall”
    “Brick Up Your Fears”

    Rejected Pink Floyd album cover art (#1)

    Original title: THE UNSCARY.

  10. Edward Cullen Says:

    Even to a sparkly vampire like me, who totally digs passive whiny female protagonists, this has to got to be the least scary vampire cover this side of a My Little Pony illustration.

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    What that wallpyre is missing is googly eyes.

  12. Sorcha Says:

    “Careful what you say, Jim – the walls have ears. And eyes. And…fangs. Honey, the wall is drooling again!’

    This cover was actually an early Banksy.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    The clue is in the subtitle: Vampire Masterpieces. Self-portraits are harder for them, for obvious reasons.

  16. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @DeadRobot: Sam Raimi’s forgotten masterpiece – ‘The Evil Damp’.

    “Who knows what evil lurks in the masonry of men? The SHADOW knows!”
    “HA HA HA HAAA…”

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    This is the origin of the superstition that you’re supposed to hammer a stake into the wall to hang a picture. Source: Wikipaedia.
