If you weren’t already having nightmares about the “Halloween asteroid” taking a detour and crashing into New York City, well, this space rock just got a little spookier. First off, Spooky isn’t an asteroid; according to NASA, it’s a dead comet. Worse! It looks like a haunted human skull.
This story is completely true. It happened right here on the internet, on a night just like this.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who have been planning their Halloween costume for ages, and those, like me, who scramble to buy some kind of hat day-of so that they can attend a party.
“There are no Halloween cocktails,” someone once said on Twitter, and they might be right. I tried to find a pumpkin one that didn’t taste like baby food and I failed—no pumpkin spice martini for you. Fear not, I wouldn’t leave you out in the cold: A Corpse Reviver is the perfect Halloween treat.

I remember the exact place where they were kept. They hovered together, trapped tightly between two wood slabs until they could be freed. I tried to ignore them, but they called out to me, over and over, in a deep low-pitched moan. Aliiiiiiiiissa. Aliiiiiiiiiissa.
Kids are evil. You’d think free candy on Halloween would be enough, but no—these middle schoolers show us that there is no limit to what they’ll do for a little extra candy.
Walk through New York City’s Blood Manor in the dark, and you might have a heart attack. Explore it with the lights up and you’ll see a series of simple tech tricks designed to scare the pants off you.
Halloween is nigh, which means it’s once again time to spend an agonizing twenty minutes in the snack aisle at your grocery store asking yourself a soul-searching question: Which type of candy should I buy?
It’s happened. At last. Halloween is on a Saturday. So once you’re done with the 12-hour trick-or-treating marathon, take a photo!
Halloween is fast approaching, which means many Americans will partake in the annual mutilate-a-squash ritual this weekend. But let’s face it: toothy grins and pointy eyes are passé. If you really want your gourd to stand out this year, we recommend spicing things up with a healthy dose of physics.
You don’t want to be caught wearing the same Harley Quinn costume as the rest of America–and thankfully, Google is using Big Data to help you avoid it.
Halloween season means a new “Treehouse of Horror” episode from The Simpsons—at least, it has for the past 26 years. Here’s the wonderfully surreal couch gag from “Treehouse of Horror XXVI.” Frank Grimes makes an appearance, looking quite unlike we’ve ever seen him before.
