    For sheer literary merit and respectability, Frankenstein has cast a shadow over all horror novels published over the two subsequent centuries. Picking Mary Shelley's 1818 classic seems like an easy out, though, which ignores more recent landmarks of the genre like Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. The new century has already seen some excellent horror novels, including Dan Simmons' huge, Victorian-era chillers, The Terror and Drood; Scott Smith's disturbing vacation-from-Hell The Ruins (hey, anyone see the movie?) and China Mieville's genre-busting Perdido Street Station.

    Still, evaluating the scariest of everything for the 13 Days of Halloween series has reminded me of the subjectivity of fear-based entertainment and the fact that the most lingering scares date back to youth. For the novel that scared me most, I have to back to vintage Stephen King, who penned several heart-stopping books before I was old enough to drive. Salem's Lot and The Stand would be satisfying choices, not to mention his "Monkey's Paw" homage Pet Sematery). His novel that scared me most, though, wasn't even a novel."

    For sheer literary merit and respectability, Frankenstein has cast a shadow over all horror novels published over the two subsequent centuries. Picking Mary Shelley's 1818 classic seems like an easy out, though, which ignores more recent landmarks of the genre like Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. The new century has already seen some excellent horror novels, including Dan Simmons' huge, Victorian-era chillers, The Terror and Drood; Scott Smith's disturbing vacation-from-Hell The Ruins (hey, anyone see the movie?) and China Mieville's genre-busting Perdido Street Station.

    Still, evaluating the scariest of everything for the 13 Days of Halloween series has reminded me of the subjectivity of fear-based entertainment and the fact that the most lingering scares date back to youth. For the novel that scared me most, I have to back to vintage Stephen King, who penned several heart-stopping books before I was old enough to drive. Salem's Lot and The Stand would be satisfying choices, not to mention his "Monkey's Paw" homage Pet Sematery). His novel that scared me most, though, wasn't even a novel.       0,0,10      13043659 1443079                          13 Days of Halloween: The scariest novel "

  string(1542) "Movie theaters tend to be our culture’s equivalent to the campfires, the places where we gather and attempt to frighten each other. Of all the film genres, the horror movie offers the most likely return on investment, so cinema offers more than a century’s worth of spooky material, from Universal Studio’s black-and-white classics like Bride of Frankenstein of the 1930s to recent high-tech ghost stories like Japan's Ringu. Of course, the vast majority of horror flicks only inspire laughter or disgust, but the jagged diamonds in the rough can be exhilaratingly frightful, like John Carpenter’s Halloween which created the template for the slasher film in 1978.

    After most movie “boo!” moments, the fear subsides once you see the stage blood or realize that only a cat was making the unnerving noise. A few, however, create horrors that follow you home, none more so than The Exorcist, William Friedkin’s notorious depiction of demonic possession. Linda Blair’s Regan transforms from a cute, normal little girl to a misshapen, all-knowing, possibly homicidal ghoul. The Exorcist's nightmarish sound design alone can fray a viewer's nerves, but the film violates the rule that what you don’t see is scarier than what you do, offering a glimpse of unimaginable, inexplicable evil and hostility made flesh. The Exorcist combination of stark fear and abhorrence proves so potent, even remembering it can scare you. The pea soup is the least of it.

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. The past couple of decades have seen Halloween lawn displays evolve from modest Jack-o-Lanterns to sprawling, grisly spectacles worthy of professional haunted houses like Netherworld. Down the street from my mother-in-law's home in Chamblee, for instance, you can see a giant-sized spider surrounded by fake human bones (at least, I hope they're fake) in an otherwise nondescript neighborhood.

Given that you can't swing a dead cat without hitting morbid yard art this time of year, What's the best local Halloween display you know? Email photos of the scariest or most imaginative outdoor decorations at CL — if you dare! — and we'll make an on-line slideshow of them worthy of "Night Gallery." It's your chance to can take your monstrous front-lawn tableau viral and scare exponentially more people.

It has to do with significant events in the Gay Calendar and significant events that happened in June. That's part of our history. We don't change history. I'm all about Piedmont Park. However, you need to honor what you need to honor, and location is not the reason we do this. I am ashamed of the Pride Committee for agreeing to this. I know people on the committee that are my friends, and I am ashamed.

    image-3Chris:  Piedmont Park would only let us to do that weekend, and it turned out to be Halloween. Having it on Halloween will inspire people to dress up more, participate more, and it will be a lot more fun than everybody sweating in the heat in June. Having it at the different time of year does not take away from what happened at Stonewall. Around the country, Gay Pride has been celebrated at different times. It makes no difference in remembering those that were at Stonewall. We always have those thoughts with us whatever month it would be.

Having it at the different time of year does not take away from what happened at Stonewall. Around the country, Gay Pride has been celebrated at different times. It makes no difference in remembering those that were at Stonewall. We always have those thoughts with us whatever month it would be.

More people will be here.  Any time we come together as a community we're strengthened. I'd prefer June, but the fact that we get it back in Piedmont Park, it really doesn't matter to me when it is.

    image-2Ken: It's an abomination. Gay Pride is the anniversary of Stonewall. Stonewall is in June, not October. It has nothing to do with Halloween. It has to do with significant events in the Gay Calendar and significant events that happened in June. That's part of our history. We don't change history. I'm all about Piedmont Park. However, you need to honor what you need to honor, and location is not the reason we do this. I am ashamed of the Pride Committee for agreeing to this. I know people on the committee that are my friends, and I am ashamed.

    image-3Chris:  Piedmont Park would only let us to do that weekend, and it turned out to be Halloween. Having it on Halloween will inspire people to dress up more, participate more, and it will be a lot more fun than everybody sweating in the heat in June. Having it at the different time of year does not take away from what happened at Stonewall. Around the country, Gay Pride has been celebrated at different times. It makes no difference in remembering those that were at Stonewall. We always have those thoughts with us whatever month it would be.

Well, Culture Surfing can't resist counting down the days to Halloween with examples of the biggest scares in pop culture, across multiple media. Think of them as the razor-blade apples in your Trick-or-Treat bag.

    Let's creak that door open by asking, "What's the scariest movie trailer?" Frankly, the kinds of trailers that scare me most are the ones like this or especially this. Most contemporary horror trailers these days culminate with a memorably loud, often visually incoherent jolt at the audience. Today's sneak previews can't hold a candle to the Exorcist-influenced trailers of the 1970s, which often had a fever-dream quality that made their cheapness even more unnerving. Perhaps I'm biased because I was a kid in the 70s, but the TV commercials for the likes of Suspiria, and It's Alive never failed to freak me out. Most menacing at all was the trailer for Magic, an Anthony Hopkins psych0-ventriloquist flick from 1978. "Fats" the evil dummy terrorized my younger self at movie theaters and on late night TV:

    

    Does it leave you unfazed? Okay, Mr. Braveboots, what's a scarier one?       0,0,10      13043605 1442968                          13 Days of Halloween: The Scariest Trailer "
