Along with the leaves and cool breezes, October is a month that gives rise to the Fall spirit. However, that’s not the only spirit that rises in the tenth month of the year. The age old tradition of dressing up in costumes and going house-to-house looking for candy for the sake of a child’s enjoyment is usually what comes to mind when talking about Halloween, but for an ever growing group of people, Halloween is so much more than that. It’s about the scary, the spooky, the freaky, and the weird.And it’s not just one day; it’s the entire month.

Now if you’re like me and consider yourself a “Halloweenie”, then you totally understand the obsession and love for the amazing holiday. How could someone not love the monsters, candy, insane yard decorations, and most of all, the movies?
