The word is Sepulchral

Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite, All are on their rounds tonight; In the wan moon’s silver ray, Thrives their helter-skelter play. - Joel Benton

Pronounced: /səˈpəlkrəl/ [suh-puhl-kruhl]

In honor of Halloween, I wanted a spooky word and I think this one fits the bill.

Many things around you can be sepulchral. The deep and hollow tone of a foghorn, an icy draft of wind that raises goosebumps on your arm, a foreboding feeling of impending doom as you walk through a graveyard at midnight. Bwhahaha.

So, how will you use this word? How about, "As the eerie cat cult began to chant, the sepulchral tone in their voices sent chills up my spine." Now it's your turn. Scare us! And Happy Halloween a little early.
