It’s almost Halloween! Today’s word is sepulchral. It is an adjective that is derived from the word sepulchre — a word that means tomb. It comes from the Latin word for grave (sepulchrum).
Sepulchral means something that is gloomy (dark and quiet in a spooky way) or something that is associated with a grave or tomb. Of course, a tomb would be sepulchral in nature.
Here is an unforgettably spooky film for you that is selpulchral in nature: Premature Burial (1962) starring Ray Milland. Enjoy!
