This probably has more detail than I'd need but captures the tension and suspense.
This is a simple cover with great typography.
One of my favorites. Kids in creepy masks would be perfect for my book.
Here's an idea which wouldn't show any characters.
A nice, subtle cover that immediately reads as horror but doesn't have a hundred things happening at once.

Necesidades de diseño
I've been getting many designs that are trying to squeeze every element I mention in the brief into the cover and it just looks like a jumbled mess. Feel free to be more abstract. Not every design needs to put the 4 characters in silhouette, etc. Remember, horror is about mystery, about what lurks in the shadows.
I'd love for the cover to really capture the feel of the Halloween season, the mystery, excitement, and fear that surrounds the holiday. The book also contains Lovecraftian elements as well as ancient Druid/European mythology and folklore but a designer doesn't have to include everything.
Lo que debe evitarse
I don't want it to look cartoonish or juvenile. Not witches or zombies. I don't want the cover to be too busy, just something that a reader immediately recognizes as dark, intense Halloween horror.
