This special is split into different stories, with an narrative of a haunted house party between them. A good primer for the stories.
The first story, based in Ireland in the 1890’s is well told. I thought it was going to be a normal horror story. It has a nice link to the upcoming Zenescope ‘Ripley’s’ series. The Jack-O-Lantern is a good story and I did like the twist at the end of this story. It was a little confusing in places, but it fit right in the end.
The next part is a good gruesome story with scarecrows. It’s something I hadn’t heard of before, but I like the way it was told and the ending was really well done! The art was perfect for this story.
Trick or treating is a staple of Halloween – especially in America (it’s more so in the UK now) and this final story has that. A creepy old man, and some sweets. There is a good twist, and I like the way it was told. This one leads you down the path and creeps you out for the end!
There is, of course a final twist. Well done, and a nice Halloween finish!
