Horror Haiku by Randy Fox

One of the great joys of my life is that I have a large and very gifted group of friends that share lots of the same wacky interests as I. Often they will come up with something so fun or simply funny that I won't be able to get it out of my head for days or even sometimes for years. Such was the case recently when my buddy Randy Fox sent out via email a series of Haiku poems composed after watching a slew of older horror films. These stuck with me for weeks until I decided ask him if I could borrow them for this blog. Randy was more than happy to oblige and so I will now present a few of his poetic efforts with occasional illustrations.
