Halloween Countdown, Day 8

* TastyTrix's mouth-watering blog is all about world cuisines, travel and restaurants, and delicious recipes. For the Halloween season, the fabulous Trix is posting "Serial Killer Suppers," which she describes as "a weekly series in which I will feature a notable meal of a notorious killer. I'm excited, as the series combines two of the things I love most in the world: food and murder. (Say it with me, Hitchcock style: MUH-deh.)" Check out the first post in the series here: "Schnitzel, Fried Potatoes, and White Wine: the Last Meal of the Dusseldorf Ripper."

* Have you seen the new Penguin Horror editions, selected and introduced by Guillermo del Toro? There's more about them here. The cover artwork is stunning. (Thanks to wellinghall.)

* Now I invite you to enjoy a fantastic rendition of "This Is Halloween" (from The Nightmare Before Christmas) performed by The Dapper Dans. (Thanks to witchcat07.)

"A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises. Ghosts were created when the first man awoke in the night."
- J.M. Barrie, The Little Minister (1891)
