Nothing sets the mood for a good Halloween like a good book or movie. Here is a quote from one of my favorite writers of horror “Despite my ghoulish reputation, I really have the heart of a small boy. I keep it in a jar on my desk.” Robert Bloch [author of Psycho].

Even a good short story. Try The Monkey’s Paw by W.W. Jacobs:

or The Lottery by Shirley Jackson:

Both of which I find pretty chilling.

As for books we have plenty ofย  Stephen King, Peter Straub, John Saul and more. How about someย  scary films? We have everything from Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein to Psycho.ย  So get in the mood and have a scary good Halloween.
