Frights on the Web
Whether getting ready to slap on a ghoulish grin or a bright red nose, monsters and clowns
alike should head to the Net for some scary laughs and fun. We've put together a few
devilish delights to help you get into the spooky spirit.
Start at Greetings.Yahoo.com for a
selection of free Halloween e-cards to send to your friends and family. Selections range
from the cute Hello Kitty, kids in costumes to interactive games in which
you must find scary monsters in a haunted house.
If you're looking to creep out your computer, download free screensavers, desktop
themes and wallpaper for both Windows and Macintosh systems at FreeHalloweenScreensavers.com. The
site, which is already plugging screensavers for upcoming holidays, offers quick and easy
downloads with minimal ads.
For pretty much everything else you could possibly want, surf over to Halloween-Online.com, a site that bills itself
as the "Internet's largest Halloween resource." The site lives up to the lofty
claim handily, offering articles on subjects like pumpkin carving, how to create a haunted
yard, a safety guide and more, all with illustrative pictures and purchase links.
Our favorite feature on the site is the "Fearful Films" section, which can
also be reached at FearfulFilms.com,
a database of scary films organized by topic vampires, witches, ghosts, zombies and
the like with short reviews and a skull rating system! Perfect for selecting a film
for a fright-filled night! Tanya L. Edwards
