Just like that lingering bag of candy staring at you from the corner of your desk, daring you to eat those last few pieces, my Halloween reviews are coming back to haunt you! While going through my review stack this week, one Halloween coloring book leapt out of the pile with a lingering screech and a cackle.

Karlon Douglas packs a whole lotta creepy into a small package with this book of twelve frightful (and sometimes humorous) designs. Designs include a witch riding a killer motorcycle (literally!,) some seriously creepy clowns, Frankenstein and his bride enjoying a day at the beach, and even a Franken-chawa with a screw for an ear!

Review Breakdown

  • Complexity: Beginner Intermediate
  • Book Size: 8.5 x 11 inches
  • Design Borders: no margins, designs go all the way to paper’s edge
  • Design Lines: varies, generally medium to thick
  • Paper: average
  • Printing: single-sided
  • Binding: glue-bound

The designs in this book definitely fall on the adult side, not because of x-rated content, but because over half the designs are scary enough that I think they might give younger children nightmares. Other than the obligatory haunted house, I found the designs original and imaginative. I think that Halloween and horror fans would enjoy these designs.

Do you have this book? What do you think of it? Let us know in the comments!
