What Freaks You Out? An Ode to Halloween


It’s time for Halloween, and in the spirit of the holiday, our own C. Ryan McVinney created this fantastic ode to all things fearful. The video is made with footage and sounds from Pond5, along with narration by L. Harvey Gold based on McVinney’s original poem.

“I’m constantly inspired by other Pond5 artists,” explains McVinney. “A few contributors in particular specialize in creepy imagery, which I always enjoy. It’s intriguing to see the recurring themes throughout their clips. What is it about such imagery that disturbs us so deeply, often inexplicably? What freaks you out?”

Enjoy, and feel free to answer that question in the comments!
