The Masquerade held a Halloween costume party throughout all three of its venues on Oct. 30. A few hundred people showed up for the Halloween-style rave as some danced with light, some hung from silk and all were treated to the techno sounds of the live band.

For sheer literary merit and respectability, Frankenstein has cast a shadow over all horror novels published over the two subsequent centuries.

Movie theaters tend to be our culture’s equivalent to the campfires, the places where we gather and attempt to frighten each other.

So far the 13 Days of Halloween series on the Culture Surfing blog has beheld scary things ever (movie trailers, short stories, TV shows, songs, etc.) from a safe distance. Some of the spookiest, most creative visions of the year, however, might be on view right down the street from you at this very moment.

While shivering over the scariest stage plays yesterday, I neglected to mention Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The sung-through musical seems so sharply different from scary "straight" plays that it belongs in another category altogether.
