Michael Jackson is tied to Halloween for only one reason: Thriller. But that’s it. And yet for some reason, CBS has announced that it’s making an hour-long Halloween special—for children!—“with Michael Jackson’s acclaimed music as its soundtrack.”
Every year, the Universal theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood go all-out for Halloween, adding haunted mazes to their usual attractions. But for some reason, cinema’s most iconic spooky maze—y’know, the one at the Overlook Hotel—hasn’t been included. Until now.
If there’s one complaint about the later Halloween movies (though, realistically, there are several), it’s how damn indestructible Michael Myers became. The masked killer escaped death so many times, he basically turned into a god. Well, writer Danny McBride has promised this won’t be the case in his planned Halloween…
What’s even more unnerving than an artificially intelligent Big Mouth Billy Bass telling you about the weather? That’s easy. It’s an artificially intelligent animatronic skull telling you about the weather through a set of clacking teeth. The roving eyeballs are the creepiest part.
Turns out the new Halloween film won’t be a straight-up remake after all. It’s going to take place after the first two, keeping the story of the original “Night He Came Home” intact.
Michael Myers is coming back and he’ll do so with a little Eastbound and Down flair. Master of horror John Carpenter just revealed that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will write the next Halloween remake, with Gordon Green directing.
In the run-up to Halloween, I’ve seen really young girls dressed up as Harley Quinn pop up on social media. Confession: it grosses me out when I see it.
This surgery sounds like a total nightmare. According to a new Tokyo Medical University Hospital report, a patient’s fart during surgery apparently caused a fire that led to serious burns on her body.
Welcome to Pipette, a recurring video series that explores big science by women.
Happy Halloween, everyone! Yes the day of chills and frights is finally upon us—and so is the chance to dress up in all those amazing costumes you’ve been working on this year. Here’s the very best of the ones our readers sent to us, in celebration of this most spooktacular season.
Candy corn is garbage food, and it’s terrible for you, too. Still, as per tradition, millions of Americans purchased hefty bags of the stuff over the weekend to hand out to trick-or-treaters and snarf when their loved ones weren’t looking.
Last we checked, coating your body in melted silver wasn’t the safest way to dress up for Halloween. So Jesse Wellens instead enlisted the help of makeup artist Alexys Fleming to help turn him into the Silver Surfer. His impressive getup was made even cooler with a silver electric surfboard that let him cruise through…
When it comes to seasonal novelty songs, few have reached the level of dominance achieved by “Monster Mash.” Unlike, say, “Jingle Bells,” The Mash (as I will refer to it throughout this post) is now basically synonymous with its associated holiday, becoming the first and maybe only Halloween song readily named by the…
While plenty of basics went as Harambe or sexy Ken Bone this Halloween weekend, one Twitter user brought us this year’s most smartest meme costume. In June, comedian Katie Dippold’s Halloween #TBT went mega-viral when she shared a picture of her dressed up as the Babadook with the caption, “Tbt to Halloween when I…
Universal’s Monster Universe might sound like a pretty bizarre (and public domain) alternative to the Marvel and DC cinematic universes, but if it looks anything like these prints Alex Ross made for the series reboot, it could be fantastic.
Maybe you’re trying to up the spooky factor at home. Maybe you get generally creeped out this time of year and would like to know if you should stay at a friend’s house tonight. Or maybe you’re just the morbidly curious type. Well, this site will calm your fears or indulge your nightmares.
Last week, Saturday Night Live introduced the world to yet another piece of deeply mediocre comedy that the world wide web has desperately tried to make into this year’s hottest Halloween meme. His name is David S. Pumpkins and he is portrayed by legendary actor and Polar Express star Tom Hanks.
If the first episode of The Walking Dead season 7 left a bitter, perhaps blood-tinged taste in your mouth, maybe looking at it through a child’s eyes will help ease the pain.
The latest Homestar Runner Halloween special ditches the normal frightful megadventure in favor of what’s totally, not ironically everybody-everybody’s favorite part of video: That part where they chat about everyone’s costumes.
Artist Brian Coldrick’s series Behind You is an ongoing look at the very common fear that someone is lurking just out of your field of vision—perhaps prepping to do something not very nice. Equal parts funny, whimsical, and absolutely terrifying, the drawings make for excellent pre-Halloween browsing.
