It’s Halloween, so hit the couch and home in on horror

The annual celebration might be all hollow this year, but these skrikkerig tales should make up for a lack of treats

Halloween is a subdued affair this year, I suppose because 2020 has been enough of a sucky horror show. In America, there are strict guidelines for trick or treating (if the state allows it at all): masks under masks, leaving “candy” outside in closed, clear packaging with sanitising spray, no engaging with trick and treaters, no organising a Halloween party, dressing your child in a hazmat suit and so on ..

There’s never been a more important time to support independent media.
