It’s that time of year again boils ‘n ghouls. That time of year when the air becomes cool and crisp. When dusk brings a brilliant orange hue and long, mysterious shadows. That time of year when the smell of woodsmoke drifts upon the brisk night wind. When the leaves carpet the ground with brilliant shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown. It is that time of year when a Jack ‘o Lantern, so carefully carved, sits glowing upon the steps of homes everywhere. When children stalk the night to trick or treat. It is a time of monsters, of werewolves, vampires, witches and ghosts. It is time…for Halloween!
If you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance that, like me, you’ve waited all year for this. In celebration, not only have I decided to resurrect Backwoods Horror from the dead, but the entire month of October is Halloween for me. And the day itself? I’m not yet certain what I’ll be doing, but I’m for DAMN sure it’s going to be memorable (IF I can remember it…heh…). So dust off your costumes, or make or buy new ones, because it’s time to get out there and celebrate the time of year when Horror in every form imaginable is brought to the forefront of every heart and mind.
