Very spooky - the look on her face says it all. Love that she's clutching a teddy bear. One of my two 10's - an easy favorite in this challenge. Voted earlier.

Halloween is not part of my culture and perhaps that's why the iconography of this photo doesn't appeal much to me. But in spite of this I do see an interestingly lit indoor night scene, reminiscent of Gregory Crewdson. Well done, so.

Nice execution on this. Lighting is right on, as are the various spooky things hidden around the room. Really digging the contrast of warm and cool color tones.

LOVE all the spooks! Under the bed, in the air, and coming out of the closet. Fun image :-)

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Upon further thought, bumping up to a 7. I think the composition as a whole is good and has some strong elements but it is way too busy. I feel that less is more and would have worked far better. Love the shadows of the skeletal hands on the wall, the floating lamp, and the skeletal man crawling out from the bed. The glowing red eyes under the bed, the green monster coming through the door and the ghost are well done but they take away visual impact from the other elements which I feel are stronger. The eye has just too much to look at. Oh, wait just discovered the skull in the carpet...nice subtle touch there. I like the model's fearful expression for that works well with the fear factor of all the supernatural things that occur in the photo. Not a big thing, but I am a stickler for details - the Witching Hour is midnight so the title should reflect that hour. As it is the clock reading 3 a.m. would be better suited for the Hour of the Wolf

Well done. I think that the hand is really not necessary since it adds a touch of illustrative element foreign to the shot.
