"I love horror. I love "The Shining", "Friday the 13th", "Halloween", all those kinds of things. I love zombies, especially "28 Days Later" and "28 Weeks Later", where the zombies are going faster than the George Romero ones. I love being scared; there's something that's awesome about your heart rate going up like that." - Ricky Schroder
Halloween, also known as All Hallows' Eve, can be traced back about 2,000 years to a pre-Christian Celtic festival held around November 1 called Samhain (pronounced "sah-ween"), which meant "summer's end" according to the Indo-European Etymological Dictionaries.
