Illustrator Creates One-Picture Horror Stories Not For Faint Hearted


Irish illustrator Brian Coldrick has created a series of one-panel GIFs and illustrations in his book “Behind You: One-Shot Horror Stories.”

Each image shows a monster hiding just in arms reach, along with darkly humorous one-sentence captions. Brian told us that although none of his short tales are direct adaptations of existing stories, they do touch on “well worn horror tropes.”

Scroll down to see our favorites. Make sure you hover over the GIFs to watch the haunting illustration come to life…
