How creepy can I get?

I think today is IT.  I mean truly creepy, not shocking, just the skin crawling heebie jeebies :).  I have combined the Smudgefest challenge to use the scariest image from Smeared Ink with the Haunted Design House Macabre Monday challenge to be influenced by the legendary Vincent Price.

Ok- so let me share the process my twisted mind went through :).  I knew that the spider image from Killer Bo Peep was what HAD to be used as the creepiest/scariest one of Smeared Ink I have.  I mean, lets face it, Zombies are just plain funny, not scary, but hairy legs spiders are WAY ooky.  I was doing some research and found that one of the many movies Vincent Price was part of was called The Web.  I went looking for some images from it and found this:
Now- I have NO IDEA what this image is from, but I want to say "Geez Vincent, do ya think...."  So, I kept looking and found not the poster for the movie The Web, but to The Fly.
BY JOVE, I think she's got it!  However, during the process I saw many, many of what I would call classic Vincent Price of him with a skull of some sort like this one.

 So, after all of this, I pulled out the supplies and got busy.  This is the result.....


Spiders are from Killer Bo Peep set as is the skull- which my brain hears doing the infamous Vincent Price evil cackle.  The grave is from the Zombies set.  Hope you like it :)
