There comes a time when Halloween is no longer about collecting candy, traveling the streets, and enjoying a time with your friends. Instead, the inevitable bitterness of age comes into play, and social standards claim that you are too old for trick-or-treating. You become the one that passes out candy, watching the children come and leave with smiles. Some may view this as a negative transformation, because they have been forced to pass the baton onto the younger generation. But there are others, such as Pumpkinrot, who view this transformation as an opportunity to revel in the creativity and horror of Halloween.
Pumpkinrot is a site that focuses on showing off the anonymous creator’s love for Halloween decorations. While the creator of Pumpkinrot is not explicitly stated, the creative products that have come from this individual’s mind are far from unknown. In fact, Pumpkinrot.com has recorded photographs dated as far back as before 2001.
As explained on Pumpkinrot.com, every creation is designed to enhance the Halloween experience for individuals that are out trick-or-treating. The creator calls it a “set,” which is “a simple or elaborate Halloween display created by some Halloween-loving homeowner.” Just because age and social standards has pushed away Pumpkinrot’s ability to enjoy the trick-or-treating aspect of Halloween does not mean that he cannot heighten the experience for others. This is a tradition that more homeowners should adapt.
Here are some of the more horrifying creations concocted from Pumpkinrot’s morbid mind:
