Happy Halloween/Samhain, everyone!

What makes music scary? Some of the reasons are technical, while others are contextual. Shades of both can be found in “Music for the Zombie Apocalypse,” which looks like fun. (The album, that is, not the zombie apocalypse.)

Haunted houses are another perennial attraction. The Atlantic has a lovely slideshow of feature films starring spooky houses.

The Cthulhu mythos as imagined by kids. Really, what more needs to be said?

If you’re still looking for costume inspiration (or if you’re just spooked out and are looking for something different), the Victoria & Albert Museum is running an exhibit all about postmodernism during the 1970-1990 era. Also at the V&A is a fantastic exhibit featuring the clothes and style of Annie Lennox. Who knew the crazy kids would end up so respected?
