Door 13

"On Friday the 13th... A touch of Halloween, haunting the world with darksome visions. Nightmares conjured from deep within, a timeless friend we hold so dear, while traditions of fear, the herd do adhere, insecure clinging to icons in fright, the shadows laugh with delight!

Beware of black cats, and broken reflections, umbrellas and ladders and such, and if you survive to live the next night, you cannot deny The Devil's touch..."

Created for Friday the 13th observations. Opening from the doorway of subconscious fears amidst rolling fog, this shadowmantic display features Nero the black cat, a broken mirror, the subtle ladder-like striations upon the door frame itself, within a trapezoidal configuration, all crowned with the dreaded number 13. Based upon the idea of The Shadowmancy Room:

The Shadowmancy Room

From personal experience, I have found such superstitious materializations such as the black cat crossing one's path as omens of good tidings, and more often than not, I experience a spot of good fortune. This day also reminds Me of a room I constructed once I labeled, "The Shadowmancy Room", where I had positioned a ladder over and around the doorway, that any who entered would automatically have to walk under it; a black cat wandering about therein, and three cracked mirrors on each wall, a pentagram in the center of the room; and the crowning glory, a number 13 inscribed outside the doorway. All to test and reveal stuporstition in people, and it had a profound effect. Even though this was on Halloween, for even in the rest of the year no-one would venture near The Noctuary as it was, but even with the promise of sweets, it still seemed too daunting for the herd.

So this coming Halloween, if you are contemplating creating a Haunted House attraction, try it out. Construct a room with these specifications, that the trick or treaters may have to endure the dark psyche of their own shadow sides, that their greed and gluttony may be rewarded only by traversing this nightmarish dimension, with the candy resting in a bowl {or cauldron} in The Devil's hand only to be extracted by bending down and reaching unto His grasp.

Thank you. That little demon is Nero the black cat. Scary to some, lovable to others.
