It's Halloween!

By O. Thurtifurst Staff Halloween Writer

It’s almost time … the clock is ticking … 

It’s Halloween!

We at hope all you ghouls and goblins out there aren’t ready for the big night. We love the surprises! 

To get your day started with a Boo!, be sure to play the Halloween episode of The Weird Network's "Halloweeniacs" podcast HERE, where Mike and Tom from Jack-o’-Lantern Press, and Matt and Greg from Nightmare365 talk about Halloween haunts, attractions and events.

The guys explore traditional haunts — click on the following links for some best-of lists that they discuss, rate and tear apart:

-The 14 Most Terrifying Haunted Attractions

-USA Today’s 10 Best Haunted Attractions

-America Haunts

Then they debate extreme haunts — click HERE to watch “Haunters: The Art of the Scare,” a 2017 documentary about haunters across America, featuring some of the most extreme haunted houses ever created. 

And the guys also touch on the family-friendly kind of Halloween events that are becoming more popular. This month, Matt and Greg offered a video through Haunt o’ Ween in New Jersey on their Nightmare365 YouTube channel. Greg eats a mean ice cream sandwich.

Other family-friendly Halloween events include Carved at Descanso Gardens and Nights of the Jack in Southern California. The guys don’t talk about too many of these types of events, but they’re certainly worth checking out and considering — this is the last night of the year to try.

Did everyone — and thing — have a happy Mischief Night? The Halloweeniacs launched their YouTube Channel yesterday with an animated Mischief Night short. Check it out HERE, and be sure to subscribe and stay tuned for new content coming soon.

And if you haven’t been up to date on the scary stories from the Scary Story Society YouTube channel, there’s a really fun one that just dropped, one that you can use at Halloween parties tonight. Click HERE to watch.

Now it’s about time … The clock is ticking …

Happy Halloween!
