Halloween: New Ways to Scare Yourself

If you ask me, nothing's as haunting as a scary tale written by one of the world's greatest writers. Who can forget the effect Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" had on them when they first read it? Right now, the Academy of American Poets has several fantastic, spine-tingling poems posted on their site in observation of Halloween. Go check them out!

For the brave, they also have a directory of famous poets' grave sites. Eee.

For the really brave, Cinespia has a treat for you - a scary
movie viewing . . . at a cemetery! . . . and I thought Salem, Massachusetts cornered the market on Halloween scary. (Of course, it would have helped if I posted this before the actual screening [last Saturday] - sorry!)

Of course, if you really really want to scare yourself, . . . you can just imagine what it would be like if McCain wins next week.
