It's awesome, dark as Satan's ass and cool. Pity the grainess, it's great anyway. I like it. :horns:

Thanks. The grain was unavoidable with the lighting used, but I like that old school low budget horror look. I shoot that way a lot. :)

You can always use a tripod, but if it's your style then keep it up : >

It's strange, when I take night photos with a tripod and a long exposure, everything is bright like at day, but maybe these are just differences in our equipment, I guess.

As a side note, the model on the altar couldn't have held that pose for a long exposure, either.

I didn't use a particularly long exposure. Lighting it simply with the fire left the entire photo far too red/orange, so I used a little fill flash to give me more accurate colors while retaining the fire.

Also, with an image like this why would you WANT it "bright as day"? That makes no sense. If you stumbled on a scene like this out in the jungle under a canopy of trees lit only by a smoky fire it wouldn't be clear, distinct, and bright.

I think you're confusing the absolutely ludicrous modern insistence on photos being tack-sharp and never having any noise or grain with an artistic depiction of atmosphere. If you've never watched horror movies made prior to the 1980's this probably won't make much sense.
