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 reboot.
Video: 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.
There's more confusion about Star Trek: Discovery's Klingons. A Silence of the Lambs star joins Jurassic World 2. A familiar face will return for Ant-Man and The Wasp. Plus, the man behind Castlevania still wants to do his dark Power Rangers show, and Supergirl recruits Dean Cain once more. To me, my spoilers!
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.
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 average person.
If you head on over to Deercreek Drive in Riverside, California, and find the house near Orange Terrace Park, you'll be treated to what has become one of the best Halloween traditions anywhere in the country. There you'll find one of the most spectacular Halloween light shows imaginable — making you thankful you're not one of this guy's neighbours.
Video: Lots of kids are terrified of thunderstorms, but not Zoey. Her dad, who you might remember from the glowing stick figure costume he made her a few years ago, is back with this over-the-top Princess Cumulus thunderstorm costume that's as wonderful as it is impractical for actual trick-or-treating.
Even if you're not the Michelangelo of pumpkin carving, you can still make a memorable jack-o'-lantern using a bit of grade school science. All you need is water, dish soap, baking soda, food colouring, and vinegar. The same ingredients used in a science fair volcano can make your pumpkin appear to puke or ooze disgusting slime from its orifices.
Everyone in your neighbourhood is going to have a pumpkin carved with a goofy face sitting on their porches. Booooring. If you want to decorate for Halloween with something a little more original, why not turn your jack-o'-lantern into a working animated zoetrope and really wow all the kids stopping by to beg for free candy.
Kids love Halloween because they get to dress up, act like a monster, and be rewarded with free candy. Then you become an adult, and suddenly have to deal with little monsters demanding free sweets. Halloween is suddenly less fun, unless you build a Lego robot to deal with trick-or-treaters.
If you can think of a better idea than transforming your lounge room into a communication device for the upside-down then for Halloween, then, well...fine. But for the rest of us, this tutorial is brilliant, and temporary — so you won't have to have an uncomfortable conversation with your landlord). Happy decorating!
