13 Days of Creepmas: The Phantom Coach

Here we are, Specters - December. I thought I would start my contributions to the 13 Days of Creepmas with something that has become an annual Christmas tradition for me: The Phantom Coach. I felt it appropriate because after all, before Hallowe'en, Christmas was the traditional time for telling ghost stories around the hearth. Originally a short story by Amelia B. Edwards, The Phantom Coach was adapted into a shadow-puppet short film by Mucky Puppets four years ago. I love the chilly atmosphere of the video; you can almost feel the icy wind whipping around you.
