Halloween celebrates ghouls and ghosts, witches and werewolves, and all the terrors that go bump in the night. And yet, every year, we neglect the baddest, scariest monster of them all: man! In this lecture, come and learn why on Halloween, you should really not be weary of mummies or curses, but of your friends and family. The stories you’ll hear in this darkly humorous lecture will center on real-life, grisly and fascinating crimes committed on Halloween, or that were Halloween themed. Hopefully, you’ll come away with a new perspective on what to really be afraid of on the spookiest holiday of the year!
