This Halloween; forget about ghosts, ghouls and goblins, they don’t exist, they never have and they never will. It's all a big con created by toy companies to convince you to part with your hard earned cash by buying a big old bunch of badly-made mass produced plastic crap, which you'll bin after just one day. Face it! Ghost stories nothing more than badly written drivel, full of witches which are weak, spooks which are stupid, and (let's be honest) even Freddie Krueger's starting to look like nothing more than Edward Scissorhand's seedy uncle.
But, this Halloween, if you're hungry for something truly horrifying...?
...if your tummy twists in trepidation for tales of terror, if you wantonly drool over the delicious details of a grisly death, or simply slaver for the shocks which send those icy chills down your spine, a shiver of goose-bumps crawling across your skin, freeze your fingers with fear, as well as squirting a warm patch of piddle into your pants, then nothing will scare you more than the grisly truth about the blood-splattered streets you walk on… every single day.
Because death – my dear friend - lies right under your feet. And no matter where you live, work or play, on every street you’ve ever strode there was once a murder, in every house you’ve called home a maniac once roamed, and at every place you’ve ever played a predator once preyed, so no matter where you are, in every city, on every street, every night is Halloween.
