So you're looking for scary a movie to watch on Halloween. Maybe you're
not a huge horror buff, so you Google "Scary Halloween Movies," and you get a
thousand lists of the best horror movies ever. They're all the same:
The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, Psycho, Halloween, Silence of the Lambs,
and so on.

Rock and Shock is a one-of-a-kind event: equal parts horror convention,
heavy-metal show, and awesomeness. At this year's R&S, on October
16th through the 18th, splatter freaks slashed through the DCU Center,
filling their bloody burlap sacks with frightful T-shirts, posters for Chopping Mall and Twitch of the Death Nerve,
and autographs of Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Ace Frehley (KISS
frontman), Rowdy Roddy Piper (ex-wrestler), and Gary Busey (maniac).

It being the magical time of year that it is -- when the dead rise -- we've been lying in wait for Wacko Jacko to make his Halloween resurrection. Our sleepless nights and expert reconnaissance skills finally paid off when we spotted him at the Salem carnival, whooping it up on the merry-go-round.
As our slideshow would attest, plenty of wonderfully oozy ghouls made it out to the Somerville Theatre for J. Cannibal's "Feast of Flesh X," the crowning event of TerrorThon '10, last weekend. But just in case you missed Zombie Spock, here's a little midnight moment of illogical zombie zen for you all.
In honor of Halloween, the Laser Orgy team has compiled a list of ten terrifying moments in video-games. Here’s the catch: all of these moments are from games that were not supposed to be scary. We’ll be baring it all and admitting which games made us shriek and fling the controller across the room when we were kids (okay, maybe as adults, too), so try not to make fun of us too much.
Having never been to Boston's Comic Con before, I can't speak to what you should expect -- though their website should do the job for me. Compared to New York Comic Con's holy-shit-hugeness, Boston has a long way to go, but surely there are enough comic book fans in Beantown to beef up attendance and help the home team. Given the remarkably low price of $10 per day, even geeks strapped for cash have no excuse to not make an appearance at the Back Bay Events Center this weekend.
