The fourteenth prompt for Inktober is “empty”. I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to approach this prompt until I started thinking of all my horror favorites. The perfect one popped in my head for the word empty and it was Insidious (2010).
At this point, I have seen so many horror and monster movies that it is really hard for one to actually scare me. When I first watched Insidious, I was definitely freaked out. The story was right up my alley as it taps into astral projection and getting lost outside of your body (which has always been something that has freaked me out). It also had some parts that literally made me jump out of my seat. The “big bad” was very creepy and something I had never seen before! It easily became one of my favorite horror movies!
As I had mentioned, one of the main characters astral projects while he is sleeping and gets lost in the dream world, leaving his body an empty vessel. I won’t say anymore in case you have never seen the movie. I recommend giving it a watch this Halloween season if you really want to get the heebie jeebies!
I really like how this sketch came out and it has slid to the top of my list of favorites for this project. Sometimes, the image just falls onto the paper and everything goes exactly where it is suppose to. Plus…. it’s so creeeeepy!
Have you seen the movie, Insidious? What did you think? Leave a comment below! Check back soon for the next prompt, armadillo. Thanks for stopping by today!
