"[F]or those of us who embrace the dark iconography of horror films, it offers a unique opportunity for self-discovery and growth. As you delve into the cards, remember that horror has always been a mirror to our truest selves and the insights thereof. So, if you’re ready to explore the depths of your own psyche and embrace the shadows that dwell within, the Classic Horror Oracle deck might just be the key to unlocking a world of hidden truths and untold mysteries!"

—Snuff Out the Light

"Not necessarily as dark or complex as tarot cards, the Classic Horror Oracle card deck is a great addition to any horror fan’s collection. The artwork by Diseño is vivid, and wonderfully sums up what makes the films so iconic. Meanwhile, Mockus has done a great job assigning meaning to each film that ties in with their themes and characters. It all comes together to make a really nice set that is worth checking out."


"Ricardo Diseno has gorgeously illustrated 50 dark oracle cards with goth-style inspiration from classic movie characters and creepy themes."
