This deck has a humorous theme featuring Halloween-type and horror movie critters in the cards. It is a lot more fun than I anticipated. It's more humorous than anything else, but still retains the tarot symbolism successfully. The artwork style is somewhat derived from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas spiced with elements from Charles Addams (The Addams Family) as well. For example, one of the pages looks an awful lot like Wednesday. Some cards use traditional Halloween critters. Others use characters from classic horror fiction and movies, like Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Werewolf, and so on.

This is also a deck in which the minor arcana have been renamed. Cups are Ghosts, Pentacles have become Pumpkins, Swords transmute into Bats, and the Wands are now Imps. In addition, a black cat is featured in every single card. (In some of them you really have to look for him, but he's there!) Kipling West also did the artwork for The Cat Tarot, by the way. You can certainly use the deck in the traditional manner, as the symbolism isn't that different, but it's a lot of fun, too.
