Halloween Tree

Have you ever seen a Halloween carttoon movie with those huge dead looking trees? I'd like one as a bonsai and I think that the tree appearing dead will add to the affect of bonsai

Any ideas on a good tree that would appear dead but still be alive...something that looks scarey so I have a Halloween tree

(this tree is not just for Halloween, I plan to have it year round for many years)

all feedback is appriciated

Provided you style it well.
Anything at all that is deciduous and ramifies well.
It will look that way all winter long.

Large bonsai shows in Japan are often held in winter as this is when the trees are shown to their full effect. No flaws hidden by foliage.
