Kevin Woyce traces the strange history of Halloween, from Old World harvest festivals to our modern family holiday. The hour long slideshow covers the origins of the Jack-o'lantern, Orson Welles' 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, the first monster movies, haunted lighthouses and hotels, and much more.
