Twisted with tarot and shrouded in shamanistic magic, Dazed takes you to hell and back for November's Dark Arts special. Cover star Chloë Grace Moretz shares her blood lust for more serious roles as she ditches the pretty girl cliché as telekinetic teen scream queen Carrie shot by Glen Luchford and styled by Robbie Spencer. Kim Jones talks to Jake Chapman about their ghoulish collabo for Louis Vuitton, and long-time Raf Simons collaborator Peter De Potter reveals exclusive images from his disturbingly dark Tumblr project. We commission a portfolio of five of the world's best new artists to reinterpret their favourite tarot cards, while Jamie Shovlin takes us behind the scenes on the set of Hiker Meat, his mockumentary about the filming of a slasher movie. Eighties cult action hero Al Leong talks about perfecting the art of dying on screen; Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington of Darkside get freaked out at the house of a Brooklyn psychic; Earl Sweatshirt messes with middle America; DBC Pierre contributes a strange short story; Sissel Tolaas dissects the smell of fear; Tony Farfalla travels to Indonesia for a black magic shaman summit; and Rick Owens’ partner and collaborator Michèle Lamy meets artist Matthew Stone for an intense Q&A.
In fashion, we pay homage to horror film sirens. Richard Burbridge captures Sarah Burton’s Elizabethan inspired Alexander McQueen AW13 collection on the backstreets of East London, with make-up by Peter Phillips. Photographer Jeff Bark shoots a group of Zombie Housewives in upstate New York, styled by Robbie Spencer. Julia Hetta pairs up with stylist Mattias Karlsson and hair stylist Tomihiro Kono in a hair-raising tribute to the horror film The Ring; and Vincent van de Wijngaard and stylist Agata Belcen look to Hitchcock for their shoot with Belgian supermodel Delfine Bafort.
In the run up to Halloween, we'll also be drudging out the darkest stories from Reddit plus loads more marvellously macbre moments. Keep an eye on Dazed's Twitter and Facebook pages for more #darkarts and to be in with the chance to win a copy of the new issue signed by Chloë Grace Moretz.
