Halloween Ubiquity

One of the many things I love about Halloween season is the wonderful abundance of holiday- and horror-related items online. Here are some (grave) sites that I’ve really dug so far this October:

 

Film School Rejects: This site’s “31 Days of Horror Lists” (e.g., “10 Best Horror Movies Set on Halloween Night”; “10 Deadliest Horror Movie Weapons”) are as inventive in topic as they are informative in content.

 

History.com: The dedicated Halloween page treats readers to a host of enlightening features, such as “How Trick-or-Treating Became a Halloween Tradition” and “Why Black Cats Are Associated With Halloween and Bad Luck.”

 

Halloween Daily News: The website’s name says it all. A worthy read the whole year round, but especially during October.

 

Cemetery Dance Online: The “Free Reads!” section of the publisher’s website has been running a cool interview feature called “How I Spend My Halloween.” So far this month, authors Cynthia Pelayo, Josh Malerman, V. Castro, Stephen Graham Jones, and Hailey Piper have revealed their holiday rituals.

 

Bloody Disgusting: This bountiful site always has terrific Halloween content, such as the editorials “10 of the Scariest Moments in Horror Movies Set Around Halloween” and “The 20 Best Scenes from the ‘Halloween’ Franchise.”

 

Book Riot: In this bibliophile paradise, readers can dive into such pieces as “20 Must-Read Halloween Nonfiction Books” and “Bookish Halloween Decorations for Your Fright and Reading Delight.”

 

CrimeReads: Recent pieces worth sampling are “The Very Human Horrors of Paul Tremblay,” “Discovering Charles Dickens’ ‘The Signalman,'” “Dracula vs. the FBI,” and “9 Works of Dark Humor Perfect for Halloween.”

 

Parade.com: Celebrants who veer toward the lighter side of the dark holiday will be happy to navigate over to the magazine’s “75 Funny Halloween Puns” and “75 Hilarious Halloween Riddles” webpages.

 

Wired: The posted video “13 Levels of Pumpkin Carving: Easy to Complex” might be the best tutorial ever on the topic.

 

Christine McConnell: On her YouTube channel, the goddess of macabre arts and crafts creates an amazing jack-o-lantern.
