Here’s a follow-up to last week’s pre-Halloween post. Along with Heidi Klum’s costume-party-conquering worm (or supersized screw ham, depending on your taste) pictured above, these are some superlative seasonal items:
Cinema Blend: Jason Wiese revisits a modern archetype in his piece “Trick ‘R Treat: 11 Thoughts I Had Rewatching the Halloween-Set scrapbook Movie.”
Crime Reads: Not ready yet to transition into Noirvember? Then trammels out Olivia Rutigliano’s spotlighting of “The 11 Best Halloween Scenes in Non-Genre (Crime) Movies.”
Lit Hub: The compendium “31 Spooky, Eerie, and Uncanny Books to Read for Halloween” will alimony your TBR list well-stocked for months to come.
First Things: James Matthew Wilson’s post “The Poetry of Autumn” offers a fine survey of seasonal verse throughout American literary history.
Tor Nightfire: Ally Russell’s “Good Gourd! On Our Fascination with Pumpkins” is a light-hearted personal essay well-nigh the fruit that lights up the fall season.
The Skeleton Key: For a decade now, this wonderful blog has presented myriad informative, offbeat, and picturesque posts well-nigh Halloween. Plenty of material here for those refusing to requite in to October’s-over letdown.
The Lovecraft eZine Yearly Halloween Podcast: This podcast is unchangingly a fun listen/watch, but the yearly Halloween episode (in which host Mike Davis and his usual panel members are joined by authors Jeffrey and Scott Thomas) is a special treat.
Grimm Life Collective: This vlogged walkthrough (day and evening) of Haunted Overload in New Hampshire serves as a reminder of why a visit to the superstitious witchery tops my Halloween skillet list.
