I didn’t have to wander too far off into the dark, unknown corners of the internet to find this week’s picks. I unearthed today’s featured oddities from a few of my favorite artists whose work conjures a yearning for cooler days and thinning veils.

Let’s peel back the veil and take a peek into what awaits on the other side.

Friday Featured Oddities #1: Mysterious Crustacean, Bat Necklace, and Human Skull Bowl

Today’s roundup of weird art and morbid oddities for sale.

The eye of the Great Gorther Shell by Tom Ellis

I’ve been doing Friday Featured Oddities on the Cult Facebook page off and on for years now, sharing art and oddities for sale either by members of the Cult of Weird community or shops I stumble upon by fortuitous happenstance. As Facebook continues to tighten its grip on organic reach, however, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to get those kinds of posts seen.

So, as long as time permits (which may be rarely…we’ll see how it goes) I’m going to round up 3 weird, morbid, and/or creepy items to feature every Friday. Hopefully it doesn’t go extinct like Weekend Weird.

Without further ado, here are today’s featured oddities:

The Great Gorther Shell

Vincent Castiglia Bloodlines documentary

Bloodlines Trailer: The Art and Life of Blood Artist Vincent Castiglia

Get under the skin with artist Vincent Castiglia, whose dark visionary art is painted with human blood.

The latest documentary from filmmaker John Borowski, whose work typically focuses on serial killers, is a slight deviation from his usual subject matter. Bloodlines is about the life of dark visionary artist Vincent Castiglia, and while Castiglia may not be the usual bloodthirsty fiend Borowski makes films about, he is still creating nightmares in human blood – his own nightmares…and his own blood.

Well, most of the time it’s his blood.

While you’re waiting for Bloodlines to be released, you can watch some of Borowski’s other work on Amazon, including H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer, and a fascinating look collectors of murderbilia called Serial Killer Culture.
